Making the choice to go to rehab can often be a difficult decision to make for anyone contemplating it. 

Knowing when you have a problem with alcoholism that needs the help of trained medical professionals can be potentially life-saving. 

There are several questions that you can ask yourself to help determine whether you require rehab or not. 

Consider this list of questions that you should consider before seeking admission into rehab:

  1. Do you always crave alcohol? 
  2. Are you always thinking about the next drink? 
  3. Do you often drink more than originally planned? 
  4. Have you ever missed important events/obligations due to drinking? 
  5. Have you ever been in danger due to alcohol? 
  6. Has your drinking resulted in relationship breakdowns with family and friends?

Signs of Addiction

Alcohol addiction can be difficult to overcome without the right support, and our team at Asana Lodge are here to help you recover and start living life again.

If you become alcohol dependent, you may experience extreme mood-swings, cravings and withdrawal symptoms when you do not drink.

You may also find it challenging to cope with normal situations in life without resorting to alcohol to deal with stressful scenarios.

Everyone’s alcohol intake threshold is different, but those who abuse it often don’t realise how much they are drinking, and either try to conceal or deny it.

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness/unsteady gait
  • Shaking involuntarily
  • Feeling hot and cold
  • Sweats

Alcohol Rehab Process

A typical alcohol rehab process involves several key stages being carried out, these stages provide the framework for alcohol addiction treatment although many clinics differ in how their processes are carried out and what type of treatments and therapies are offered.

See below four-stage alcohol rehab process that can be applied to the alcohol rehab programme carried out at our leading facility:

Rehab Admission

Stage 1 – Admission & Assessment

The first stage of alcohol rehab is admission and assessment which is where the clinic will be able to determine the severity of your addiction and whether you are also suffering from co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety.

Assessments carried out at Asana Lodge include a full medical examination and assessment.

Upon completion of a full assessment, a personalised treatment plan will be put in place based on factors such as the severity of your addiction and whether you will need dual diagnosis treatment.

Detoxification

Stage 2 – Detoxification

The next stage of alcohol rehab involves detoxification. This is the process of safely removing all addictive substances from your body.

While undergoing alcohol detox you will most likely be kept under close supervision by our team. The reason for this is to monitor whether you are suffering from potentially harmful withdrawal symptoms as medication can be given to help alleviate any problems experienced.

Typically detoxifications can take up to 10 days depending on how severe the addiction is.

Rehabilitation

Stage 3 - Rehabilitation

Whereas detoxification is focused toward eliminating the physical side of your addiction, rehabilitation looks to solve the mental side which is key to maintaining long term recovery.

This is achieved through the use of essential therapies and treatments like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Group Therapy, One to One Counselling, Meditation plus much more.

Therapies provided as part of our alcohol rehab programme are all designed to heal both the mind and body to best ensure that long term recovery is achieved.

Aftercare

Stage 4 - Aftercare

Most alcohol rehab programmes come with an aftercare programme. This involves regular online check-ups carried out by our addiction recovery specialists once a week to track your progress and other advice on any obstacles experienced after treatment.

What are the main benefits of residential treatment?

Residential treatment is widely regarded as the most effective way to treat alcohol addiction but what are the main benefits of receiving rehab in a residential setting?

Environment

 Change of environment

One of the biggest factors in the development of addiction is the environment which individuals have become accustomed to. Removing yourself from this environment will result in removing all the cravings and potential triggers which can make quitting alcohol an impossible task.

Structure

Structure

Residential rehab involves developing healthy habits and routines that promote a more healthy lifestyle. Having such structures in place will help make you more productive and give more meaning to your life.

Thinking about youself

Time to focus on you

Addiction can be brought on by many factors, by taking a step back and evaluating your life you can best determine what factors are contributing to your problem. This can be from stressed caused by your job or anything else, the important thing is that rehab gives you the time to reflect on this and decide how to handle the problems you are facing.

Team Support

Accountability and around the clock support

Having access to trained healthcare professionals means that you will have the support and accountability that is a crucial part of successful recovery.

Similar People

Being around like-minded individuals

Going through addiction recovery can be incredibly difficult for those who have not gone through the process before. When receiving alcohol rehab at a residential facility you will be surrounded by people who are either in the same position or have gone through the process before so can offer advice and encouragement that can be used towards your recovery.

Mental Health

Get to Understand Yourself

We offer support and help with various addictions as well as mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Many clients who come to us often have underlying mental health issues at the root of their addiction, and we can help you to overcome these when you stay with us.

Working closely with our team, you will begin to understand the nature of your addiction and how you can defeat it.

What are the main goals of rehab treatment?

Effective rehab treatment providers often set goals for clients to follow so they can best keep track of their recovery. Typical goals include:

Identifying and reducing the risk of addiction triggers

The biggest challenge after completion of rehab is being able to stay sober long after recovery is achieved. To deal with this effectively you must be able to fully understand your addictive behaviours so you can deal with certain scenarios and situations that may put you at risk of a relapse.

Finding your purpose

Many individuals suffering from alcoholism have had breakdowns in relationships with friends and family, employment issues, financial worries all of which can be contributing to the further development of alcohol dependency. Making sure you have a clear goal on how to improve your professional and personal development can be key to resolving these types of issues.

Learn to listen

Alcoholics often struggle to listen to advice, this is why many refuse treatment. To set yourself apart from these individuals you must listen to the advice provided by our team of health professionals as their extensive expertise and experience are key to your successful recovery.

The Role of Stress in Drug Addiction

CQC registered facility

All residential alcohol rehab clinics must be regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide treatment in the UK.

Asana Lodge provides treatment and standard of care that is fully in line with the standards set by the Care Quality Commission.

Regulations set in place by the CQC ensures that the environment you are receiving treatment it is completely safe and provides a high standard of care that should be expected as part of residential treatment.

What happens after Rehab?

Completion of rehab is not the end of your treatment as you will have access to 12 months aftercare which is included as standard when undertaking rehab at our facility.

Aftercare involves online weekly check-ups over Zoom to check on your progress and offer advice on any challenges you may have faced after leaving the clinic.

What is the difference between inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment?

The different between inpatient and outpatient treatment is that inpatient treatment requires you to stay at a facility when receiving treatment whereas outpatient treatment does not have this requirement with treatment and therapy taking place in the daytime.

What form of treatment works best for addiction recovery?

The most proven treatment for addiction is inpatient residential treatment. This is mainly due to the structured environment and around the clock, medical support individuals experience throughout a typical alcohol rehabilitation programme.

Do you provide outpatient treatment?

No, all addiction treatment programmes offered at our clinic are strictly provided on an inpatient basis.

A family member is suffering from addiction to alcohol, can you help?

Yes, we offer a family referral service which is specifically tailored for this.

How long does alcohol rehab last for?

The typical duration of an alcohol rehab programme is 28 days, this is also the duration that is most recommended by clinics as it is seen as individuals who go through this length of treatment tend to record higher success rates.

How much does alcohol rehab cost?

The cost of rehab is fully dependant on the severity of the addiction that needs treating, the duration of the problem, quality of care provided and if extended aftercare is needed. Get in touch with our admissions team for more information.

How can I help a loved one with rehab?

The best way to help a loved one through rehab is by being compassionate and supportive which will give them the motivation needed to get through the programme.
