Detoxing From Drugs and Alcohol
When you attend rehab for a treatment programme, the first thing you will usually experience is a detoxification process. This removes all substances from your body and removes your physical connection to the substance that you’re addicted to.
Detoxing will cause you to experience a range of withdrawal effects. These withdrawal effects can range from mild to severe. When you go through a detox in a rehab setting, you will be surrounded by medical professionals who may be able to provide prescription medication to help you deal with the withdrawal symptoms.
Detoxing can be very uncomfortable, particularly if you have a severe addiction. In some cases, it can be very dangerous. This is why it’s so important to go through your detox stage in a rehab setting where you can be monitored constantly and have access to medical professionals.
Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms that you may experience during the detox stage are depressed feelings, anxiety, feeling sick, shakes and tremors, intense sweating, restlessness, seizures, irritated feelings, hallucinations, and sleep problems.
Addiction and Mental Health
Making sure your mental health is in good shape is at the heart of all of our rehab treatment programmes. It is extremely important for us to monitor your mental health during your treatment programme. We can provide additional support to you and assist you as much as we can to help with your mental health.
If you are suffering from an addiction in addition to mental health problems, we will refer to this as a dual diagnosis. Our team is very highly trained on dealing with those who are admitted on a dual diagnosis. The treatment plan you are offered will address both of these issues at once.
It’s very common for addictions and mental health problems to go hand in hand. This is something that we see a lot at our facility. When someone is addicted to alcohol or drugs, their brain is impacted by all of the harmful toxins that come with these substances. This can then lead to a long-term mental health issue.
Similarly, if someone is suffering with bad mental health, they may then turn to drugs or alcohol as a way of self-medicating or as a way to help they cope with their psychological issues. This can very quickly result in the person becoming dependent on the substance, which can lead to a severe addiction.
Relapse Prevention in Rehab
We provide a range of treatments and therapies as part of our rehab treatment programmes. In your therapy sessions, you will learn the essential skills that you need for relapse prevention. During your relapse prevention sessions, our team of highly-qualified staff will help you identify the causes and triggers of your addiction. This will help you to recognise what keeps your addiction going and then this can help you avoid any potential chances of relapsing.
The team will provide you with the skills and tools you need to continue your recovery journey when you return home and you will be fully supported along the way. It is very common for relapses to occur after attending a drug or alcohol rehab centre so don’t feel discouraged if this does happen to you. We can help you by discussing what has happened and come up with a plan to ensure you don’t relapse again in the future.
When you attend a rehab centre for treatment, you are putting yourself in the best position to be able to achieve complete long-term recovery from your drug or alcohol addiction.
Addiction Treatment Aftercare
Once you have completed your addiction treatment plan at our rehab centre, you will be provided with a personalised aftercare plan. This comes at no charge for 12 months after your initial treatment. We recognise that the first 12 months after your treatment are the months when you’re most likely to relapse. This is why we provide our aftercare programme to help you avoid potential relapses.
Your aftercare plan will include additional therapy sessions if needed, dedicated helplines that are open 24 hours a day, and access to local support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.
