There are many things that can cause us stress in the modern world, from pressures at work to relationship problems. While small amounts of stress are part of modern life, if you are regularly stressed and feel mentally and physically exhausted, then it might be time to seek help. The Rehab Clinics Group offer stress rehab at our comfortable clinics in the UK and Spain, allowing you to take time away from the source of your stress and recover.
What is stress?
Stress is a natural bodily response to difficult situations. When faced with pressure or confrontation, our bodies go into fight or flight mode, releasing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which get us ready for a physical response. This makes you feel alert, anxious and paranoid, which can make it difficult to function or cause us to make rash decisions. This response was useful when humans were in physical danger, it’s simply not needed in the modern world.
How can stress be harmful?
Feeling stressed can lead to anxiety, insomnia and a restless, jumpy feeling, which over time can seriously affect your health. You may suffer from high blood pressure, which can cause heart problems and other physical symptoms. Those who suffer from stress often neglect to eat or sleep properly, which can lead to problems such as obesity or diabetes. You may have been diagnosed with Chronic Stress Disorder or Generalised Anxiety Disorder by your GP, and be worried about the effects on your mind and body. It’s only in recent years that doctors have recognised the strain that stress puts on your health and have started to take it seriously, leading to an increase in demand for stress rehab.
What happens in stress rehab?
Stress rehab is about more than simply taking a break from life. When you come to a clinic run by the Rehab Clinics Group, our aim is to discover the issues that are causing your stress, using therapy and other tools to give you the skills you need to cope. When you arrive in rehab, we take a full assessment of your mental and physical health, so we can offer you tailored treatment options rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
Many people who stay with us have stress-related conditions such as anxiety or depression and they may need help with their mental health. Other occurring disorders that can be attributed to stress can include migraines, irrational thoughts, lack of concentration or insomnia, which is why a full assessment needs to be carried out.
What kind of treatment options are available?
There will be many treatment options offered to you when you stay in stress rehab. This is because not every type of treatment works for everyone, so we like to tailor your care plan to suit you. You may want to try Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help you overcome negative patterns, while some people do well with mood management, nutrition therapy and other types of individual treatment.
Many people who stay in our clinics also have mental health or addiction issues, which can make it difficult to deal with everyday life. They may have been diagnosed with depression, bipolar or anxiety, which has made it difficult to cope with stress. We often find that people self-medicate with drugs or alcohol when they’re stressed, so over a period of time we’ll ensure we look into all these issues, providing specific treatment when needed.
Is stress rehab right for me?
All sorts of people from all walks of life contact us about stress rehab. It’s not just for those with high-flying jobs or celebrities. If you’re searching for information about stress and stress treatments, then the odds are that you are worried about yourself or a loved one. You don’t have to wait for your stress to worsen before you seek help. The earlier the intervention, the better the chances of avoiding long-term harm from stress, and simply investing a few weeks of your time with us can improve the rest of your life.
We understand that those who are looking for rehab will often be anxious about leaving their lives behind. That’s why we offer flexibility and a personal approach, so you can stay up to date with your commitments during your recovery, as long as they don’t interfere with your healing.

What happens after stress rehab?
