Addiction to alcohol or drugs impacts so many aspects of your life, you may not even realise how much it’s drastically affecting you. One of the most significant changes is how much alcohol or drugs damages your physical health.
The toxins in these substances cause your physical health to quickly deteriorate, this is most noticeable through skin sores, bloodshot eyes, gaunt appearance, and nausea; addiction also considerably increases your risk of developing liver disease, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
In addition to causing physical damage, addiction has a terrible effect on your psychological health. Not only can alcohol or drugs cause you to be irritable, anti-social, and fatigued, but it also raises your risk of anxiety, depression, bi-polarity, and suicide.
Your relationships with family and friends are also likely to take a hit as your next ‘fix’ becomes all that you can think about, leaving those who care about you behind.
Financial difficulties are common for those struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, as are problems with work as they find it increasingly difficult to perform what were once simple tasks.
Don’t let addiction take hold of your body and mind any longer. Take back control by getting in touch with our addiction rehab in Wandsworth today on 0151 268 6992 or email us at [email protected].
What are the benefits of our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Wandsworth?
There are a few different ways in which someone can seek drug and alcohol treatment. When searching for a ‘rehab near me’, you’re likely to be overwhelmed with the variety of options available to you.
Firstly, drug and alcohol services are available through free local health services like the NHS. Whilst free treatment may sound appealing, this is actually the least effective method of addiction treatment.
Unfortunately, the NHS are so underfunded and overstretched, they’re unable to offer any level of personalisation when it comes to your treatment plan. They’ll also be forced to add you to a long waiting list of people who require drug and alcohol treatment.
You can seek addiction treatment as an outpatient at a drug and alcohol rehab, however, there are significant disadvantages to this. As you’re returning home each night, you’ll be faced with the usual stresses of daily life, in addition to any negative influences or distractions which are present at home.
We understand that staying at home whilst undergoing your treatment sounds attractive, but it can actually be detrimental to your long-term recovery. You need to put all of your time and efforts into overcoming addiction; it helps to be pushed out of your comfort zone to achieve this.
The most effective drug and alcohol treatment is through a private rehabilitation centre with a residential programme. This means that you stay at your chosen rehab centre throughout the duration of your addiction treatment.
You’ll benefit from 24/7 support from an expert team of addiction specialists, in addition to receiving the highest quality evidence-based therapies to help you on your road to recovery; this is exactly what we offer at our rehab in Wandsworth. You’ll benefit from a completely bespoke treatment plan to ensure maximum success; you won’t get this level of personalisation anywhere else.
We take care of your housekeeping and laundry, we provide you with daily nutritious meals, and generally take care of anything you need, allowing you to solely focus on your long-term recovery. This relaxed and motivating environment with no distractions is key to your success.
Aside from your carefully selected therapies, we also arrange social activities for you to enjoy in your down time. These include quiz nights, film nights, group walks or runs, and family visits should you wish to take part.
What evidence-based Therapies do we deliver?
All of our therapies are individually selected to what we believe will benefit you most. Our team of recovery workers consist of doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, mental health support staff, and counsellors, many of whom have first-hand experience of going through drug and alcohol rehab.
This makes our team extremely knowledgeable and relatable for our clients; they truly know how to help you and what you need most to achieve your long-term recovery.
We have a range of therapies which focus on breaking your psychological connection with alcohol or drugs. One of these therapies is cognitive behavioural therapy, also known as CBT, which works to identify the underlying reason of your addiction and then redefines your thought processes and negative behavioural habits which relate to your addiction.
This will help you to learn how to react different in certain situations and make better and more positive choices going forward; the ultimate goal of cognitive behavioural therapy is to get you in a position where you feel comfortable with your decisions and not as though you’re being influenced by your addiction to alcohol or drugs.
Other therapies we offer which focus on your psychological health include counselling, motivational interviewing, drug or alcohol relapse prevention, and stress management. In addition to these, we also ensure that your general well-being is taken care of through a variety of well-being focused therapies.
These include mindfulness, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, art therapy, nutritional supplement therapy, low-level laser therapy, fitness therapy, and meditation.
Whilst these may initially seem unusual to you, we can safely say these well-being therapies have helped countless people along their journey’s to achieving long-term recovery.
What happens when you leave our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Wandsworth?
After completing your residential addiction treatment with us which typically lasts around 28 days, you will return home to continue your recovery.
Our support will follow you in the form of our aftercare programme which offers you dedicated helplines, and ongoing therapy sessions such as relapse prevention and cognitive behavioural therapy.
