A drug addiction or an alcohol addiction can ruin your life in a short space of time. It’s important that you seek out help as soon as possible. The longer it is left, the harder an addiction is to treat. By recognising and accepting you have a problem with alcohol and drugs, you have already taken an enormous step.
Action Rehab are here to help you when you are ready to take the next step and choose a course of rehab for drug and alcohol abuse. Our team are friendly, compassionate and experienced. Many of them are themselves recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction and understand your situation.
If you are concerned about your use of drugs or alcohol, or feel that a loved one needs to receive some advice about choices they are making, please call Action Rehab today on 0151 268 6992 and allow us to give you the help and information you need at this difficult time.
Signs of an addiction
There are several signs that someone is suffering with a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction and recognising these signs are important. Changes to someone’s physical appearance and behaviour could be a consequence of an addiction.
People suffering from an addiction may be increasingly irritated, confused, paranoid and be struggling to control their temper. They may also be suffering from extreme weight loss, red eyes, discoloured skin and suffering from insomnia.
If you are worried about a loved one, approaching them about the subject is a very difficult thing to do. You should only speak to someone about this if you are certain an addiction is present. If you have any doubt, please consult with us first in order to reach a conclusion.
Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
When you seek help from Action Rehab, we will be able to help you without delay. Unlike the NHS and local charity services, there’s no waiting list for our services. Private drug and alcohol rehab is not the cheapest option, but we can work with you to find a type of rehab for drug and alcohol abuse that is within your budget.
We take pride in treating all our clients as an individual and in providing tailored treatment programmes. By holding an initial consultation over the telephone to serve as a pre-admission assessment we will be able to establish which treatment programme will work best for your situation.
We almost always recommend residential addiction treatment. With a 28-day commitment to your recovery, you can return to your normal life clean and with a new mentality. Whilst we understand completely that this is a big time commitment and is a long time away from your normal life, residential rehab allows you to focus on your recovery with no distractions or stresses from your normality.
Why not contact us today for a no obligation consultation about your use of drugs and alcohol?
Upon your arrival at Action Rehab’s luxurious treatment facility, we will perform a full assessment of you, both physically and psychologically. This is so we can get to know you, create an individualised treatment programme and dual diagnose any underlying mental health conditions. These are often the reason you have developed a drug addiction or alcohol addiction in the first place.
Because you are treated in a residential setting, we can offer mental health treatments and support as part of your addiction treatment. Unfortunately, outpatient treatment, as offered by the NHS and local charities, do not offer this kind of dual diagnosis so whilst an addiction is treated, the underlying cause is not which leaves someone prone to a future relapse. This is probably the biggest benefit of residential rehab.
Drug and alcohol detoxification
Most of our clients need to start their treatment with a trip to our detox clinic. This is an unpleasant experience, but it is necessary to help someone to withdraw from the substance they have grown addicted to. Withdrawal from a substance removes the toxins that have built up in your body and stops cravings. But your body will react negatively to this experience and you will suffer from withdrawal symptoms. These can be mild but can also be dangerous, which is why a DIY detox at home is not recommended. But completing your detox is essential for your long-term recovery.
Our medical team are on hand around the clock to monitor your progress, and if there is any discomfort caused by withdrawal symptoms, they can offer you prescription medication to alleviate your discomfort. A rehab can take as long as two weeks depending on the severity of your drug addiction or alcohol addiction, but when this has been completed, you can move on to complete your therapies.
Therapies in Powys
Conducted on both an individual and group basis, your therapies allow you to get to the heart of your addiction and consider why it is that you developed a drug addiction or alcohol addiction in the first place. This is usually discussed via Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) on an individual basis. Group therapy has also proven effective to share your problems and experiences with your peers, fellow recovering addicts. This positive peer pressure often motivates people to achieve better results during their time in residential rehab.
We will provide you with drug and alcohol relapse prevention techniques as part of your 12 months of aftercare. You will return to your regular life in Powys armed with new information, a different view on life and a fresh mentality focused around a life free of drugs or alcohol. Our drug and alcohol aftercare programme will look out for you during the important year after your rehab.
