What are the benefits of drug and alcohol rehabilitation?
Of course, the main goal is to achieve long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol or drugs. However, there are a variety of addiction treatments available, some of which are better than others. You can find treatment options available from free local health services like the NHS, but it’s important to note these free or low-cost services are likely to be generic and ultimately ineffective; you’ll also be added to a long waiting list. This is simply due to the fact that the NHS is sadly underfunded and overstretched, they’re unable to deliver personalised treatment programmes to every individual who needs it.
Across our industry, bespoke treatment programmes are widely regarded as the most effective method to treat addiction. Therefore, a ‘one fits all’ approach from the NHS may result in frustration at the process leaving you reluctant to try again. Most people suffering from addiction require urgent care, we’re confident that we can offer same-day admission at our rehab centres. This is why we recommend joining a private residential centre like our rehab in Worthing straight away.
Another great benefit of staying with us throughout the duration of your treatment programme is that you have the ability to truly concentrate on your recovery without the distractions or negative influences of daily life at home. If you were to attempt outpatient services, it’s difficult to change your addictive behaviours as you remain in the same addictive environment that you’re used to. For the best chance of recovery, you should remove yourself from daily temptations and allow recovery to be your sole focus.
How do you know if you’re ready for alcohol or drug abuse treatment rehabilitation?
If you’re concerned that yourself or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs and is experiencing any of the following symptoms, you must seek support immediately. Common symptoms include weak muscles, lying about bad habits, losing interest in personal hygiene and social interests, dry mouth, fluctuating temperatures, blue tinge to nails and lips, difficulty breathing, low blood pressure, feeling isolated from family and friends, redness of the face, dizziness, tiredness, feeling disorientated or confused, delirium, muscular or stomach cramps, the shakes or slow pulse.
We understand how difficult it can be to come to terms with your addiction. It’s a huge step to take when you admit to others and to yourself that you need professional support. Alcohol or drug addiction is considered a brain disease and mental illness, the effects of prolonged substance abuse can be detrimental to your psychological health. In order to treat this effectively, you must undergo a variety of therapies.
It’s possible to be physically and psychologically addicted to alcohol or drugs, you can become dependent on the substance where your thoughts are overtaken by your craving for the next ‘fix’. This can be devastating for your general well-being, for your relationships with family and friends, for your career and for your finances. We must remember that if a person is addicted to alcohol or drugs, immediately ending that consumption can be life-threatening. This is why it’s so important to visit our detox clinic and gradually reduce your alcohol or drug intake in a safe environment.
What treatment options do we have available at our treatment centre?
Each person’s journey into addiction is completely unique, therefore it’s unrealistic to expect anything other than a bespoke treatment programme to be effective. It’s important to note that in order for our leading addiction treatments to be their most effective, you must be committed and fully motivated to achieve your recovery goals. Despite receiving a completely bespoke treatment programme at our rehab in Worthing, it’s likely that we’ll start you off with a visit to our detox clinic which can last up to 10 days.
Detoxification is a very useful process which helps to remove all of the harmful toxins from your body, allowing your subsequent treatments to be more effective. Our dedicated team supervise you 24/7 to ensure your safety throughout the entire treatment. It’s very dangerous to attempt detox at home as withdrawal symptoms can range from mild nausea or sickness, through to severe seizures, insomnia and even delirium tremens (DT’s) for which you’ll require emergency medical attention. We strongly advise against any attempt of detoxification without professional support.
What happens after you’ve completed your treatment programme?
Rehabilitation is an ongoing process, one that you must continue to work at even once you’ve left our rehab in Worthing. We offer a free 12-month aftercare plan to all of our clients, designed to help reduce the potential of relapsing. Our team of addiction specialists will provide the tools needed to remain sober and to cope with your addiction triggers once you’re back at home. We recommend local support networks and encourage you to utilise Alcohols Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
