Before you make any decisions on the type of substance misuse treatment you want to undergo, it’s important to know what your options are. Firstly, you need to choose between private rehab clinics or addiction treatment provided by free local health services like the NHS.
Many people are understandably drawn towards free addiction treatment; however, this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best option for you. This form of addiction treatment has actually proven to be the least effective in achieving long-term recovery. It’s more likely that you’ll experience a failed attempt at rehabilitation from alcohol or drugs leaving you disheartened and reluctant to try again.
We’re confident that the most effective way to treat alcohol or drug is addiction is to take advantage of the incredible service provided by private drug and alcohol rehab centres. They have fantastic facilities, resources, and dedicated, highly qualified teams of recovery workers who deliver evidence-based treatment programmes.
Each addiction treatment programme is personalised to each individual, making them much more tailored and more successful than the generic treatment programmes which are provided by free local health services.
Therapy options at our rehab in Weoley
All of the treatments we deliver at our rehab in Weoley are evidence-based and proven to be effective when rehabilitating from drug or alcohol addiction. We’re proud to deliver such a diverse range of psychological, physical and well-being therapies to ensure there’s something that will benefit everyone.
Some of the psychological therapies we deliver include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), psychotherapy, motivational interviewing, stress management, individual, group or family counselling, and relapse prevention.
In addition to these psychological therapies, we also believe in the importance of offering well-being therapies to support your recovery at our drug and alcohol rehab Weoley. Some of the well-being therapies we deliver are low-level laser therapy, mindfulness, relaxation and sleep management, yoga, nutritional supplement therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and fitness therapy.
Drug and Alcohol Detoxification
To support these therapy sessions, we also highly recommend a drug or alcohol detoxification to remove your physical connection to the substance. Detoxification has the potential to attract withdrawal symptoms which in some cases can be eased with prescription drugs administered by our team of professionals.
Detoxing can be an uncomfortable and potentially dangerous process; this is why it’s so important that you complete a drug or alcohol detox within the safety of a professional rehabilitation centre like ours in Weoley.
Some of the common withdrawal symptoms during detox include feeling anxious, feeling sick, shaking, intense perspiration, feeling depressed, feeling restless, seizures, feeling irritable, hallucinations, and having trouble sleeping.
Mental Health Issues
Taking care of your mental health is at the heart of all of our drug and alcohol rehab programmes. It’s crucial to monitor your mental health as you go through drug and alcohol rehabilitation, we can provide additional assistance and help in other ways to support you as much as we can.
If you’re suffering from both mental health issues and an addiction to alcohol or drugs, then we refer to this as a dual diagnosis. Our team are highly trained and experienced in helping people with a dual diagnosis so it’s nothing to feel embarrassed about.
We frequently see mental health issues and drug or alcohol addiction together as when someone is addicted to alcohol or drugs, the make-up of their brain is impacted by the harmful toxins within these substances; this can lead to a long-term mental health issue.
Similarly, when someone is suffering from poor mental health, they may turn to alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with their psychological pain, this can quickly turn into a dependency on the substance and in time, a severe addiction.
From all of the therapy sessions we deliver, perhaps the most useful to you upon your return home from our rehab clinic is relapse prevention. Within your relapse prevention sessions, our fantastic team of recovery workers will help you to identify the underlying causes of your addiction which will then help you to recognise any triggers and avoid potential relapse.
They can provide you with the tools needed to continue your recovery journey at home with the full support of our dedicated team. Drug or alcohol relapse is actually quite common after rehabilitation, so it’s important not to feel discouraged or demotivated. We can discuss what happened and make sure you don’t experience a relapse again.
When you join a residential rehabilitation programme like ours in Weoley, you’ll be in the best position to achieve your long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, particularly if you follow your addiction treatment up with a comprehensive aftercare plan.
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Aftercare
Once you’ve completed your addiction treatment programme at our rehab clinic, we’ll provide you with a personalised aftercare programme free of charge for 12 months. This aftercare plan includes dedicated helplines, additional therapy sessions if needed, and access to local support networks like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.
Is addiction a mental illness or disease?
Addiction is a very complex disorder and so the specific characterisation of it is largely dependent upon the conditions from which it has developed within the individual suffering from it. However, this chronic illness can be conquered with the help of trained medical professionals no matter how severe it is.
How do I start my recovery journey?
The fact that you are here suggests that you are ready to make the all-important step of actually attending rehab. Quite simply, your first step should be to call us on our helpline. Once you reach out to us and express and interest in attending rehab, then our helpline staff will be able to get the ball rolling on getting you set up at our facility.
How long does rehab last?
Rehab duration can often vary in certain, more severe, cases. However, most commonly we offer individuals a course of treatment which will last for around 28 days. A stay of this length is also more likely to increase the chances of a long-term recovery. It can seem a little daunting to commit to such a long course of treatment away from home, but the benefits of this duration cannot be understated.
