Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Drug and alcohol abuse exists everywhere and can quickly spiral from ‘fun’ to a problem that begins to negatively affect all aspects of life. Eventually, a user of drugs or alcohol develops a physical and psychological dependency, meaning that they need to take a substance just to feel normal, and as a habit forms, it’s harder and harder to stop using.
Addiction is classified as a disease, and the good news is that recovery is possible through the use of addiction treatment through rehabilitation and detoxification, and Action Rehab can connect you with the best treatment centre for you in Dulwich.
Different treatment options are available to treat different addictions, and what works for one person may not necessarily work for someone else. Action Rehab can help you find the best drug and alcohol services in Dulwich dependent on the severity and type of your addiction.
When you’re addicted to a substance, any sudden changes in usage can be dangerous, particularly alcohol withdrawal when stopping drinking suddenly can be fatal. Detoxification treatment is the process of the substance leaving the body and is the first stage of any recovery journey.
For the purposes of safety, long-term recovery and to give yourself the best chance of avoiding a relapse, drug or alcohol detox at a detox clinic in Dulwich is a good start.
What’s the difference between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab?
Drug and alcohol rehab can take place either as an inpatient or outpatient.
Inpatient, sometimes called residential rehab, sees a person stay at a rehab centre for the duration of their therapy. There’s no set time, but 28 days is a common length of time for treatment and the patient will not leave the rehabilitation centre during this time.
Professional help is available at all times, and treatment will be carefully structured around all parts of the day to help withdraw from drugs and develop healthy habits that will give the best chance of success.
This can be the best option for people who have previously tried and failed to recover from addiction, where withdrawal would be dangerous, or for those who need dual diagnosis treatment.
Outpatient treatment is when a person does not stay at a centre, but continues to live at home and visits a centre for treatment. This type of treatment often lasts between three and six months, and it’s the responsibility of the patient to attend.
Many of the treatments offered by the NHS are outpatient and might be supported by other groups and programmes in the community.
Whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is right for you, Action Rehab will help you find the right treatment centre in Dulwich. Private treatment allows you to get the help when you need it, where you need it, without waiting times or lists. Get in touch today to find your place.
Therapy options for Drug and Alcohol Treatment
An important part of drug and alcohol treatment is the therapy options that challenge harmful ways of thinking and replace mental triggers that may have led to use with positive thought processes that allow the patient to maintain control.
Through the use of therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and focusing on Stress prevention, rehab treatment will provide new mental tools to aid recovery and promote a substance-free future.
What support is available after Rehab?
For those who are determined to overcome their addiction and fully engage with their treatment, the successful completion of a rehab programme is likely, however, after leaving rehab, continued sobriety can be a challenge.
Relapse prevention is key to ensuring that the hard work and determination used in rehab treatment isn’t wasted. Those undergoing treatment must recognize the environmental and mental triggers that caused them to use in the first place and may tempt them to use in the future.
Through a combination of therapies and support, strategies will be developed to cope with these triggers, and all rehab treatments in Dulwich found through Action Rehab will help to develop their own individual relapse prevention.
An aftercare programme will be personalized for each individual, made up of stages and strategies that will give them the best chance of long-term recovery. This can take many different forms, whether, through a 12-step programme, counselling, community groups, or support from friends and family, the goal of aftercare is to provide an ongoing network of support.
