What to expect from rehab?

Withdrawal symptoms are commonplace when you work through detox, as your levels of consumption are reduced your body adjusts to life without the substance in your system, this can cause a whole range of side effects. The longer and more severe your addiction, the more withdrawal symptoms you are likely to encounter. Detox should always be conducted under medical supervision to ensure that you are not putting yourself at risk.

What is involved in residential rehab treatment?
Although each treatment program will be personalised to tailor specifically to your needs, there’re certain treatments that everyone will partake in.
Detox is the first step in a residential treatment program. Your detox program is scheduled by medical professional who will look at the length and severity of your addiction as well as your medical history to determine the safest schedule for your detox. Withdrawal symptoms are common throughout this stage, as your consumption levels are reduced, but these symptoms will vary depending on your addiction. It is important that detox is only attempted under medical supervision, as some of the symptoms can be severe and dangerous.
Alongside detox, therapy is also included. By understanding your addiction and your own personal triggers, you can take back control of your life. We provide many different types of therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, and motivational sessions. You may be prescribed one of these therapy types or a combination, to help you recover from your drug or alcohol addiction.
Initial treatment programs last for around 28 days and once you have successfully completed your rehabilitation we will provide you with a Relapse Prevention Plan to help you cope with a drug and alcohol-free life outside of the centre. We will also put you in touch with local support groups to ensure that you have access to peer support to guide you outside of the rehab centre.
