What is addiction?
Addiction is defined as something you have no control over doing and which causes you harm. Anyone can become addicted, despite what common stereotypes tell us, and you can become addicted to anything, from work, to shopping to alcohol and drugs.
Addictions become habitual and are extremely difficult to stop, and in most cases you cannot overcome the addiction without professional help. This is often due to the fact that the addiction arises as a coping strategy to an increase in stress or a trauma in life.
With drug and alcohol addictions you will start to notice physical symptoms on your body after a time, and this can lead to irreversible damage; such as liver damage. Alongside physical damage, substance misuse can also cause psychological issues such as anxiety and depression.
If left untreated, your substance abuse will take over your life, isolating you from friends and family as you can only focus on your next high. Your relationships will disintegrate and you may even lose your job and home as a consequence. This will all, in turn, affect your mental wellbeing.
We can offer you the physical and psychological treatment required to fully recover from addiction allowing you to lead a normal and happy life again.

Addiction can be caused by and cause mental health issues, which is why therapy is an important part of recovery. All of our treatment programmes offer therapy sessions as a way to understand your addiction and how to manage future cravings and negative emotions.

What to expect from residential treatment programmes
Residential treatment centres are often considered to be clinical, cold spaces, but this could not be further from the truth. In reality, the residential rehab centres are welcoming spaces that offer quality facilities, nutritious meals and create a warm and supportive environment that nurtures recovery and relaxation.
All treatment programmes last for an initial 28 days, but can be extended when required.
Detox is the first step of any treatment program and should always be conducted under the supervision of medical professionals. The aim of detox is to slowly reduce the consumption levels in your body until you are free form the substance you have been addicted to. However, due to the fact that your body will have grown accustomed to this substance you will experience withdrawal symptoms during the detox process. The longer and more severe your addiction, the worse your withdrawal symptoms will be.
Some people are tempted to try this at home, but this can become dangerous, due to the withdrawal symptoms, especially if you withdraw from the substance too quickly. Our specialist team will work with you to determine a safe schedule for detox.
In most cases, detox will take a couple of days and you may experience headaches, nausea, heightened anxiety and perhaps some confusion.
Once you have completed your detox you will be able to begin the next step of your rehab in Bamber Bridge. This will consist of daily exercise, workshops and therapy sessions.
Your treatment program will determine they type of therapy you will be provided with. From cognitive behavioural therapy to group sessions, whatever type of therapy you undertake you will develop the necessary skills to maintain your sobriety outside of the rehab centre.
Once you finish your 28 day rehab program you will be able to return home, but rest assured we will still provide advice and support in the form of aftercare.
Sometimes the thought of returning home can be a daunting prospect, as you will have to stand alone and put into practice everything you have learnt through rehab in Bamber Bridge.
However, we will offer you support and advice every step of the way. You will be provided with a Relapse Prevention Plan upon completion of your rehab program and we will also link you up with local support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous. These peers support groups are considered to be essential for long term recovery and minimising relapse.
Where to start
Admitting you have a problem is often the hardest part of rehabilitation, but once you have achieved this you can start to move forward with your life. You will be able to rebuild everything that has fallen apart, including restoring broken relationships. However, you must be committed to recovery, otherwise relapse is highly likely.
