When to seek treatment
Addiction is defined as something you have no control over doing and which causes you harm. It can affect anyone and you can become addicted to anything, including; work, shopping, drugs and alcohol.
If you think you are suffering with an addiction, you should seek professional help and advice. If addiction is left untreated it will only get worse, as chances of recovery are minimal without professional help. You will find that your relationships will break down as your focus shifts to your next fix, which in turn creates a very isolating environment. Your mental wellbeing will deteriorate and these negative emotions can often be exacerbated by the substance misuse.
Your physical and psychological wellbeing will deteriorate over time and if you don’t seek help irreversible damage may occur.
It is always best to seek help as soon as you can, but, no matter the severity of your addiction, it is never too late to seek rehabilitation. It’s important to only seek help when you are ready to admit you have a problem, as only then will you be willing to fully commit to recovery and be able to achieve long term sobriety.
Residential vs outpatient treatment services
It can be hard to know where to start when it comes to rehabilitation treatment services. Our friendly and supportive team of experts will discuss with you your addiction, current circumstances, and medical history to determine the best type of rehab in Falkirk for you.
Every rehabilitation journey is personal, which is why there are so many treatment services on offer. Some people prefer to undertake rehab in the comfort of their own home and attend local detox clinics, or specialised drug clinics or alcohol rehab. However, Falkirk has limited drug and alcohol rehab options.
The most successful rehab treatment services are the residential treatment options. This is because they distance you from your everyday life, negative influences and allow you the chance to focus on your recovery in a safe and supportive environment.
Residential treatment services also offer a more intense treatment program combining detox with therapy sessions and peer support, which is more successful in achieving long term recovery.
What to expect from residential treatment services
Residential rehab in Falkirk and the surrounding area usually lasts for 28 days and can be extended when required. This provides plenty of time to change addiction habits into more positive lifestyle choices and learn how to deal with cravings and negative emotions.
At Action Rehab, we will only refer you to high quality residential rehab centres, that provide daily exercise schedules, nutritional meals, holistic practices, workshops and peer support sessions.
You will be supported throughout your stay by our expert staff, consisting of doctors, support workers and counsellors. After your arrival they will work with you to personalise your treatment program to ensure that you receive the help and support you require.
All treatment programmes will contain a detox and therapy sessions to ensure that you rehabilitate your mind and body.
Addiction treatment options
We understand that every rehabilitation journey is personal, which is why we offer a range of treatment options to suit every person. However, despite the ability to tailor your rehab in Falkirk to yourself, your treatment program will follow the same general structure as everyone else.
These steps include:
You will start your treatment program with a detox, which can be a daunting task. The aim of a detox is to reduce, at a slow and safe pace, the consumption levels in your body to the point where you are free from the substance altogether. However, as the consumption levels are reduced you will experience withdrawal symptoms, which will vary depending on the length and severity of addiction.
Mental health can drive underlying causes of addiction, but addiction can also cause mental health issues. In order to control an addiction you must understand what it is, how it works and your own personal triggers. The only way to understand this is by undertaking therapy. Each of our treatment programmes incorporates either one or more types of therapy, depending on your own personal requirements. These different types of therapy include the following:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – used to determine your negative thought processes and help you determine more positive thought processes to deal with the everyday.
- Motivational Sessions – work with you to help you feel more positive about yourself and your future.
- Support Groups – peer to peer support to give you a support network.
- Individual Therapy – focused therapy that can include a wide range of therapy, including; psychoanalytic, cognitive behavioural therapy, talking therapy. The type of therapies included will depend on your needs.
By understanding your addiction you will develop the tools needed to maintain long term recovery at home.
Once you have completed your stay at our residential rehab in Falkirk you will receive a Relapse Prevention Plan that will assist you when you return home. We will also offer you support and advice whilst you settle back into life at home and link you up with local support groups and meetings.
