Drug and alcohol rehab will give you the best possible chance to overcome your addiction. Addiction is a very complicated illness that requires specialised medical treatment to overcome.
These specialised treatments make sobriety possible and safe to work toward. The fully trained staff have helped thousands of addiction patients, and they know how to support you with the correct treatments for both your mental and physical addictions.
Addiction is a chronic condition that will be with you, in one form or another, for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, there is no cure for drug and alcohol addiction.
The great news is alcohol and drug rehab can offer preventative methods and strategies so you can manage your addiction within day-to-day life.
It does this by providing you with a range of coping mechanisms that can replace dangerous substance abuse. In times of stress or depression, rather than turning to drugs or alcohol, you may have an exercise learned in rehab to pull you through.
The main reason you should go to rehab is that you deserve to live alcohol and drug addiction free. Addiction has a proven negative effect on both your physical and mental health, leading to long-term problems such as:
- Heart failure
- Liver failure
- Loss of teeth
- Loss of smell
- Loss of taste
- Opening the way for mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia
- Higher risk of cancer
The benefits of substance abuse are short-lived and carry with them life-altering risks.
At Action Rehab, we understand that change can be frightening. And we can’t promise you that the recovery process will be easy. But we can promise that when you do eventually achieve long-term sobriety, you will be thankful you put in the work for your better, brighter future.

Addiction Treatment Options in Rehab
When it comes to addiction treatment drug and alcohol detoxing is combined with therapy. To rid the body of toxins and to create an environment for you to focus on tackling your mental health.
They are designed to treat different areas of the addiction so that by the time you leave the facility you can carry on progressing yourself.
Alcohol and/or drug detox is recommended if you have a chemical addiction; an addiction to substances such as alcohol and some drugs, including heroin.
The detox is designed to safely rid your body of all toxins over a ten-day period. During this time, you may experience some of the following withdrawal symptoms:
- Light sensitivity
- Mood swings
- Hot flashes
- Muscle pain
- Muscle spasms
However, we want to assure you of your safety. A medical team will continually monitor your progress. They will make sure the withdrawal symptoms never progress to the point of danger.
You will be kept hydrated, and comfortable, and be medically assisted. The medication is designed to mimic the substance you are addicted to in order to trick your body into relieving withdrawal symptoms.
Therapy is recommended following the detox in all types of addiction. This is because, through therapy, you will learn healthier coping mechanisms.
You will also learn how to identify the triggers for your cravings so that you can avoid them and be free from your addiction.
Therapy will improve and strengthen your mental health so that you are in a good place mentally and emotionally to take on the responsibility of looking after yourself.
If you wish to join in, there are treatment workshops that provide information on cooking a balanced diet and looking after your physical health. These can support you in being able to look after all areas of your life, not just focus on fueling your addiction.
