Considering a course of addiction treatment at a professional rehabilitation programme may be a daunting notion, but it will also be one of the best decisions that you can make today.
Asana Lodge’s drug and alcohol rehab in Abingdon on Thames should be seen as a chance for you to break free from a life of drug and alcohol abuse, in favour of a life of healthy sobriety.
Despite the fact that prolonged drug addiction and alcohol addiction can cause incredibly serious side effects to a person’s physical and mental health, a shocking number of people suffering from an addictive disorder find themselves delaying attending professional treatment.
Often, this can be due to a misplaced sense of shame that the individual feels regarding their own substance misuse; however, addiction can sneak up on people from all walks of life at any time in their life, and it is an illness that you should not be ashamed of admitting to.
It is not only the individual suffering from the addictive disorder who suffers the ramifications of their addiction either.
Tragically, drug addiction and/or alcoholism leads to fractured and generally strained relationships with loved ones and friends, most often due to increasingly unpredictable and erratic behaviour stemming from their addiction.
The fact that most addicts find themselves alienated from their family and friends as a result of their addiction can also further the delays in them attending treatment, often due to them feeling as though this is an issue that they have to fight alone.
This is not the case, Asana Lodge is ready and waiting to help you, or someone you care about, to break free from the shackles of addiction.
It can be hard to focus on the future when you’re in the midst of an addictive disorder, but the future can be bright and positive if you reach out to Asana Lodge today on 01908 489 421.
How Can Rehab Help Me?
In terms of a basic end goal, a professional residential rehabilitation centre is able to help you overcome addiction through a series of physical and psychological treatments.
Reaching the long-term goal of sobriety can also be achieved through a plethora of ways, all go which we will implement during your time with us.
Here at Asana Lodge we also implement a treatment structure that is formed around the specific obstacles that you will need to overcome on your road to recovery.
A pre-admission interview, conducted over the phone with our support team, will inform the intimate history of your relationship with substance misuse — all of the information you provide us with will also be handled with the utmost confidentiality.
Once our teams of specially-trained addiction treatment staff have a full picture of your addiction, we will be able to target the treatments and therapies which will best benefit you.
Additionally, we will have a good idea of how to help you curate a relapse prevention plan before you have even arrived at our facility so that you get the most of your time with us.
Why Have I Ended Up Manifesting An Addictive Disorder?
It is no secret that addiction is an incredibly complicated and nuanced illness. The reasons as to why drug addiction and/or alcohol addiction can take root in an individual’s psyche are varied, which can make treating addiction very difficult.
However, by the same token, once we have managed to isolate the core reason as to why you’re struggling with an addictive disorder, we can then better treat it.
Some of the places that an addictive disorder can stem from may include lifestyle factors, such as being exposed to drink and drugs from a young age.
However, a traumatic experience from someone’s childhood may also be the core reason behind an addictive disorder, as it is something that the individual is repressing through substance abuse as opposed to dealing with the ramifications of that life event on their mental state.
Commonly, due to the nature of the multiple facets of an addictive disorder, addiction can mask an underlying mental health illness that has gone untreated.
This means that, when you stop taking the substance you have been addicted to, underlying mental health illnesses that you have unknowingly been self-medicating for may bubble to the surface.
Fortunately, all of the medical therapists hereat Asana Lodge are able to administer dual-diagnosis therapy wherever this may be the case — something which other facilities may not be able to assist with, ultimately leading to increasing relapse risk.
How Can I Get The Most Out of My Time at Rehab?
In short, all that you need when it comes to getting the most out of a course of addiction treatment at a residential rehab is a commitment to the process of recovery.
While we will be here to help you achieve every one of your recovery goals, you need to be committed to the process of recovery.
Without being prepared to make the appropriate alterations to your mental, emotional, and behavioural states in order to cultivate a life that is built around sobriety when you leave us then you will not achieve your recovery goals.
While our facility is perfect for helping you get physically sober through implementing a drug and alcohol detox treatment at our detox clinic, our facility is also here to help you make long-term changes that will be with you for the rest of your life.
One of the main reasons why residential rehab is so effective a treating addictive disorders is because of the fact that you are living and breathing your addiction treatment over the course of your time with us.
Unlike with an outpatient programme where you can simply go home after your treatment and relapse, at our facility you will be living the sober life in all of its entirety while you are addressing the underlying psychological causes of your addiction through treatments such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy). This two-pronged approach is of paramount importance to a highly successful recovery.
