We Have Support For A Wide Range Of Drug Addictions

Across the United Kingdom, more than 3.2 million people consume drugs at least once a year.

While drugs such as Cannabis, Cocaine, Ecstasy (MDMA), Ketamine and Amphetamine drugs are among those commonly used, an increase in the number of people using, abusing and developing other drug addictions has been noted.

At Asana Lodge, we are frequently contacted by individuals searching for treatment, many of whom believe that their addiction is untreatable. As a result, we have delved into the types of drugs we can treat and the treatment we can offer at our residential rehab here.

Drugs Are Categorised Based On Their Effects

Worldwide, drugs are categorised based on the effects they have on users. Although there are many categories that drugs essentially fit into, we have outlined the seven most common categories of drugs below.

Depressant Drugs

Alcohol, Sleeping Pills, Valium, Xanax, and Benzodiazepines are among the most widely abused depressant drugs in the United Kingdom. These drugs slow brain function and are often used to combat symptoms associated with mental health disorders.


Stimulant Drugs

Cocaine, Crystal Meth, Crack Cocaine, Amphetamines and Adderall are all considered to be Stimulant drugs. These particular drugs increase activity within the brain, leaving many feeling more energetic.


Hallucinogen Drugs

Hallucinogen drugs such as LSD and Ecstasy (MDMA) significantly distort an individual’s perception of reality. Often used to escape reality, these particular drugs are usually consumed recreationally before leading to an addiction.


Dissociative Drugs

Dissociative drugs alter a user’s perceptions and have a profound effect on the brain. In the United Kingdom, Ketamine, DXM (dextromethorphan) and PCP (phencyclidine) are among the Dissociative drugs used.


Cannabinoid Drugs

Cannabinoid drugs include Cannabis, Medical Cannabis, and Synthetic Cannabis. One of the most commonly used and abused drugs, at least 29.6% of adults in England and Wales use Cannabinoids at least once in their lifetime.


Opioid Drugs

Prescription drugs that combat severe pain, such as Morphine, Fentanyl, and Tramadol, are all classed as Opioid drugs.


Legal Highs

Legal highs are psychoactive drugs that mimic the side effects, euphoria and high that illegal drugs provide. Class C drugs, legal highs include Spice, GBL and GHB.


Types Of Drug Addictions Treated At Asana Lodge

To ensure that treatment can be secured for all drug addictions, we cater to a wide range of addiction types here at Asana Lodge.

In addition to providing treatment for the above, we also treat the following drug addictions;


Treatment For Other Drug Addictions

Each year, over 200’000 people in the UK enquire about treatment for an addiction problem.

However, given that more than 3.2 million people use drugs, the number of people securing treatment and entering a rehabilitation centre remains somewhat minimal.

In some instances, those struggling with addictions defer treatment due to living in denial. However, many delay securing treatment as limited information is available to inform those struggling with other drug addictions of their treatment options.

Here at Asana Lodge, we are entirely transparent about the treatment available at our residential rehab for other drug addictions. Below, we have shared just a number of the treatments we administer for other drug addictions on a daily basis.


Drug Detoxification

When treatment for other drug addictions, including those noted above, commences, detoxification is administered. Drug detoxification at our rehab sees our client’s progress through a personalised drug detox programme.

Typically, drug detoxification is medically induced. By prescribing a suitable course of treatment, detoxification can be safely administered to ensure that the withdrawal process is initiated.

As the withdrawal process is initiated, harmful toxins that have been administered throughout an addiction are removed from the brain and body.


Drug Rehabilitation

Drug rehabilitation plays a significant role in an individual’s ability to maintain sobriety, which is why our drug rehab programmes are also tailored to the personal needs of each of our clients.

Typically, rehabilitation encourages those struggling with other drug addictions to understand the cause of their addiction.

Through the employment of psychological and well-being therapy, those in recovery have the tools they need to change their mindset for the better.


Aftercare Support

Although treatment is typically administered within our residential rehab, we continue to support our clients in the weeks, months and years following their drug addiction treatment with aftercare support.

Aftercare support combines weekly group therapy sessions, one-to-one therapy and recovery support groups to ensure that sobriety can be maintained.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is Treatment For Other Drug Addictions Administered?

Treatment for drug addictions is administered in several ways. For example, our medically induced detoxifications are administered via oral medication. In contrast, therapy is administered through the employment of talking and well-being therapies.

How Long Does Drug Addiction Treatment Take To Complete?

Determining how long drug addiction treatment takes to complete is extremely difficult. This is because treatment is administered based on an individual’s personal needs. However, our drug addiction treatment programmes typically span between 28 and 90 days. The progress made and how the body and brain respond to treatment essentially determine how long treatment takes to complete.
