Drug Rehab Manchester
How We Help You to Permanently Beat Your Drug Addiction
At Rehab Clinics Group, our staff appreciate that you want to permanently beat your drug addiction (and we want that too!). This is why we create treatment plans which help you to manage your addiction and continue fighting any triggers once you leave our clinic. We achieve this by looking at how your drug addiction started and any triggers which could encourage a relapse. Our rehab clinics have expert staff who can help prevent any long-term health effects. Residential rehabilitation is hugely beneficial to beating your drug addiction as we have staff on-hand 24/7.
About Our Detox Programme
During the detox process, you’ll be prescribed medications to ease any withdrawal symptoms. Detoxing is critical to permanently beating your addiction, because you clear your body of any traces of drugs. This stage can be one of the most difficult in beating your drug addiction which is why our expert staff undergo tests to ensure that you’re on the correct best-suited medication to your level of addiction. Our clinical team can increase or decrease this dosage at any point whilst monitoring your withdrawals.
During the detox programme, your brain has to re-adjust to your body’s natural chemical levels. This is a huge shock to the system and is the biggest cause of withdrawal symptoms. With medication to reduce the changes in the body, they manipulate your body into thinking it’s still taking the drugs you used to take. However, these prescribed medications won’t cause any harm to your body. As you progress in this stage, our medical team will slowly reduce your medications until stopping completely.
Understanding Drug Rehab at Our Clinics
The reason we offer inbound client treatment is to ensure that you remain in a physically-safe environment where staff can monitor you. Being surrounded by supportive staff means you have the optimum amount of care and knowledge by professionals. When you’re first admitted to our rehab clinics, you’ll undergo a physical and psychological assessment of your addiction. This is a critical step to know what addiction treatment will work best for you. Our staff go above and beyond into looking at mental disorders such as anxiety and depression too, which may have triggered your addiction in the first place.
You’ll attend daily therapy sessions during your detox stage, so our expert team can monitor your progress and ensure you’re on track. You’ll also be invited to group therapy and have the chance to speak with your support worked individually for additional advice. In preparation for your leave, we’ll register you to local mutual support groups in your area to help keep you off of drugs for life.
How long you attend a treatment programme highly depends on the severity of your addiction and how responsive you are to treatment. We don’t ever rush the process, and heavily focus on your mental wellbeing to get to the root of your addition. Rushing the programme to get out as soon as possible isn’t the sufficient way to successfully kick your addiction. On average, patients stay for around 28 days – sometimes longer to eight weeks. We expect it takes around two weeks to reduce withdrawal symptoms, and these need to be properly addressed.
If you’re searching for drug treatment and you’re based in the North West, we have rehab clinics for you to choose from in the UK. For example, Cassiobury Court is based in Watford, which isn’t too far from Manchester. But, if you’d like to travel farther from home, Ocean Recovery is based in Blackpool which is an excellent opportunity to detox and undergo therapy in a tranquil and relaxing environment. Alternatively, our Step One clinic in Spain is a great opportunity to completely escape from any triggers in Manchester. If you seek rehab in Manchester, you might not give yourself enough opportunity and space to escape to a new environment and fully focus on you and your health.
We Care for Your Mind, Too
At Rehab Clinics Group, your health is our priority, and that also includes your mental wellbeing. Our psychological therapies are designed alongside medical treatments to help prevent relapsing and stopping your drug addiction. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps to positively change the way you think and behave. By getting to the core of your drug addiction, you’ll learn what triggers your desires to take drugs. CBT involves sitting with a trained specialist to help you change any thoughts and behaviours which aren’t beneficial to your recovery.
With regular CBT sessions, we can help you manage your addiction and apply these skills and learning to your daily life outside of our rehab clinic. Our staff will also provide you with helpful and educational advice and tips on preventing relapses outside of rehabilitation. Doing so involves one-on-one and group therapy sessions to reflect on what creates an urge to take drugs. We also offer additional psychological services, which can depend on your mental help.
What’s Involved in Aftercare Treatment
Once you’ve successfully completed the programme and we’re happy with your progress, you’re free to leave. But, treatment in the outside still continues. All patients receive a personalised aftercare plan with challenges to keep you focused in your everyday life. The last thing we want is our patients relapsing, so our aftercare support is designed to keep you drug-free and sober for life. This aftercare programme begins immediately after you conclude in in-house rehabilitation treatment to ensure you have support from the get go. You’ll also have communication with our support staff, so someone is always by your side to listen and offer you advice.
We advise everyone undergoing treatment to travel away from their home. This is to avoid any triggers which your current lifestyle holds against you. With clinics all around the UK, and one in Spain, there are many different packages and locations to help beat your drug addiction. So, instead of staying in your hometown in Manchester, step outside of your comfort zone and challenge your potential.
