Addiction is a terrible, unsettling illness that will often lead those who suffer from it into periods of antisocial behaviour while also putting their lives at risk in a variety of ways.
When you’re in the throes of addiction it can be nearly impossible to see there ever being a way out, but Action Rehab are ready to offer you a lifeline with the help of their drug and alcohol rehab in Winchester.
A lot of individuals can feel scared and even ashamed at the prospect of attending a residential rehab treatment programme. Although, it is important to remember that by committing to a recovery plan at one of our rehabilitation centres you are committing to turning your life around and improving your quality of life. There is no nobler a pursuit than that, and so you should never be ashamed of such a commitment.
Addiction’s Side-Effects Can Ruin Your Life And The Life Of ThoseYou Care About
The wide array of long and short-term side effects of drug and alcohol abuse can be massively devastating for not only the individual but those close to the individual and their wider community as a whole.
For the individual, side effects such as blood pressure complications, lung damage, cancer, insomnia, fatigue, and many many more side effects can manifest as a result of substance abuse and/or alcoholism.
The sooner that you accept that you need professional help in overcoming your addiction, the sooner we can start turning your life around and minimising the impact that substance abuse and alcoholism are having on your body.
It is not only your body that will reap the ruinous effects of long-term addiction, but your addiction will ultimately lead you into a state of isolation from your friends, family, or any support network once available to you.
It can be impossible to properly commit to another human being when you have an addiction that takes the place of all of your desires and attention. However, with the right addiction treatment, it is possible for you to overcoming your addiction and forge meaningful, positive relationships with people once again.
Action Rehab specifically implements family drug support assistance as a part of our treatment plans for this very purpose.
What Are Our Facilities Like?
Many individuals can have a somewhat archaic notion of what a residential rehab will entail. They will often picture drab, grey facilities populated by cold uncaring staff and being locked into a small room every night.
However, our spacious, warm, and welcoming facilities could not be further from this image. We want to make sure that you can recover from your addiction in comfort, as this is will help you to form a more long-term recovery thanks to a positive recovery experience.
During your stay at one of Action Rehab’s state-of-the-art drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres, you will benefit from a private en-suite room with housekeeping services performed daily as well as three home-cooked meals prepared for you each day.
Furthermore, you will also be able to experience our spacious grounds whenever you feel the need to get some exercise. Experiencing a break from your daily life which will hold a lot of memories of your history with addiction is one of the most effective ways to break from the cycle of addiction — hence why residential rehab is such an effective method of recovering from addiction.
It is not only our facilities that are specially designed to keep you squarely on the road to recovery either, as our teams of staff will make sure that your recovery journey is mapped out around your personal obstacles.
Due to the fact that addiction is often formed from very personal situations and/or experiences, it only makes sense that we should implement a personalised recovery plan for you and your unique challenges to overcome.
One such challenge can be treating any other lingering mental health illnesses that you may have been inadvertently medicating for through your addiction with a treatment called dual-diagnosis treatment.
What is Dual-Diagnosis Treatment?
As mentioned above, consistent heavy drinking and/or substance abuse can have long-term consequences for your mental health. However, when treating addiction it can sometimes be difficult to separate the issues of substance abuse disorders and depression according to some studies.
Due to the stigma that some people still find attached to depression, a high proportion of addicts will never seek professional help with this illness, instead choosing to “self-medicate” in a fashion with drug and/or alcohol. The effects of these substances can seemingly alleviate the feelings associated with depression temporarily, but this is not the answer to your issues.
With this in mind, when we begin to treat you at our facility and the negative substances have left your body, you may initially present with feelings of depression. This dual-diagnosis of substance abuse and depression can often be hard to treat due to it being so tricky to figure out which condition manifested first as well as the impact they each have on the other.
Treating an individual who is suffering from something as complex as a dual diagnosis can require very specialist knowledge and truing. Fortunately, the highly experienced staff of addiction specialists are fully prepared to help you through any and all issues in this vein that you may present with.
At Our Facilities, You Will Be In Safe Hands
Our staff are all committed to making sure that you get the most out of your time with us and realise your ultimate goal of long-term recovery. Other treatments, alongside dual-diagnosis treatment, that you may experience during your time with us include intravenous brain restoration therapy (NAD+ therapy), CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy sessions), art therapy, nutritional and wellbeing classes, one-to-one and group therapy, relapse prevention training, satori chair therapy, and much more.
