Why should I go to rehab?
For some people, stress can be completely overwhelming, and sometimes even debilitating. In these severe cases, stress can lead to addiction problems which makes it vital that you seek out professional stress treatment before it has a detrimental effect on your physical and psychological well-being.
Here at Asana Lodge, we can help you to understand the causes of your stress and addiction problem, and provide comprehensive dual diagnosis treatment to alleviate you.
Although an optimal level of stress in the body is beneficial, once you surpass this level, you can be at risk of long-term side effects and conditions such as panic attacks, insomnia, substance addiction, depression, high blood pressure, and even heart strain.
To avoid or overcome these unwanted conditions, we offer fantastic medical treatment for stress and addiction disorders, specialising in cognitive and addiction recovery.
What is stress and how do I measure it?
When you experience a difficult situation, stress can be a natural bodily response. Sometimes, it’s difficult to gauge just how much stress is affecting you as we simply accept it as a part of daily life.
Whilst in milder forms stress can actually be good for you as it boosts motivation and helps you perform, too much of it can put your body and mind under unbearable pressure and possibly lead to addiction problems. This is when you need to seek stress overload treatment; we can help you with this.
Before we can tailor your stress and dual diagnosis programme, we must measure how you respond to stress both internally and externally. This will give us the best rate of success in designing a programme which will benefit you most.

Is Stress Dangerous?
Dual diagnosis treatment aims to remove all of the harmful side effects associated with high stress levels and ultimately the stress itself.
If you’re struggling with a stress disorder, you can begin to feel anxious, depressed, and even experience a restless, skittish feeling which over time can have a harmful affect on your health.
Other common side effects of stress can be struggling to eat or sleep properly which can result in additional problems such as diabetes or obesity, or the use of drugs or alcohol to self-medicate.
You may require therapy for stress, depression and addiction recovery through cognitive behavioural therapy which aims to help you manage your problems and relax you.
If you’re feeling the pressures of stress and addiction but aren’t quite sure which treatments you need, simply give us a call on 01908 489 421 and we can talk you through our dual diagnosis treatment on offer at Asana Lodge.
What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment like?
Once we have taken an initial assessment, we can begin to tailor a dual diagnosis treatment programme for you which will address both your addiction and stress issues.
Over a lengthened period of continuous stress, your brain and body could have reduced functionality in addition to a range of unpleasant side effects.
At Asana Lodge we strongly believe in tackling the stress disorder and addiction at the core with low risk, non-traditional therapies, giving you the best chance of recovery without the side effects from prescriptions.
- Satori Chair Therapy (ZRO Wellness System)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
These treatments are also provided through a typical bespoke treatment plan which is determined based on an evaluation of your condition by our specialist medical team.
All therapies we provide as part of your treatment process are incredibly vital in avoiding the need for chronic stress treatment medication.
Our commitment to providing bespoke treatment is what makes us so unique, as we understand that not everyone will respond effectively to one given treatment. We’re all different, therefore our stress disorder and addiction treatments need to reflect this.
Before undertaking any treatment programme we will first give advice on the best treatment for issues such as hair loss due to stress, deliver chronic stress therapy and provide treatment and support during the substance withdrawal period.
Alongside our therapies and treatments, we also promote a relaxed environment to practise deep breathing exercises, mindfulness, and physical activity, all of which contribute to overcoming the pressures of stress and addiction.
