What is addiction?
Addiction is defined as something you have no control over doing and which causes you harm. Anyone can become addicted to anything, despite what common stereotypes tell us. You can become addicted to work, shopping, drugs or alcohol, to name just a few.
If you’re unable to give up this substance or action for 24 hours you’re definitely suffering with addiction. If you’re unsure it’s always best to seek professional advice.
Addiction is usually an initial coping strategy for stress or trauma in life, but as time goes on it develops into an unhealthy habit, that becomes increasingly difficult to control and manage.
If left untreated, it will slowly take over your life, destroying relationships, work life, your home and your health, as your focus turns purely to satisfying your fix.
It’s so important to seek professional help to treat your addiction, but you should only undertake rehabilitation if you’re committed to recovery.
What are the treatment options?
At Action Rehab, we have extensive resources across the UK, meaning we have access to a wide variety of rehabilitation treatment services, from outpatient treatments to residential treatment programmes.
Some people who are receiving treatment for their addiction, prefer to stay at home and visit local detox clinics, specialised drug clinics or alcohol rehab services. However, when in your own home, you will still face all the negative influences that have cased your addiction, making recovery very challenging and relapse a real possibility. We don’t advise this type of treatment for more severe addiction cases.
We usually recommend residential treatment programmes, as they enable you to extract yourself from your home environment and focus entirely on your recovery.
What to expect from residential rehab in Fleetwood
Upon arrival at a residential rehab in Fleetwood you will undergo a physical and psychological medical examination to determine the extent of your addiction and the required treatment. We appreciate that all rehabilitation processes are personal, and we ensure that your treatment program is tailored specifically to your needs. However, each program will follow the same structure to ensure that long term recovery can be achieved.
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.
Some people will be tempted to try a detox at home, but this is very dangerous due to the withdrawal symptoms that can arise from a detox. It is always recommended to undertake a detox under medical supervision.
Mental health issues can be underlying causes of addiction, as well as being a consequence of addiction, which is why therapy is an important aspect of recover for any addict. In order to fully recover and gain control back over your life, you must understand your addiction, its triggers and your thought processes. Only then can you achieve long term recovery.
The different types of therapy on offer 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.
Only once you have completed your treatment program will you have the tools required to manage your long term sobriety in your own home environment.
Once you have completed your treatment program you will receive a Release Prevention Plan that will help support you as you enter your home and rebuild your day to day life.
We’ll be on hand to offer you support and guidance every step of the way and we can help you develop local support networks, by introducing you to local support groups and meetings, such as; Alcoholics Anonymous. These peer support groups are considered to lower the risk of relapse and support long term sobriety.
