It’s well-accepted that people tend to drink and eat more around Christmas, some not doing so because it makes them feel good. Alcohol and mental health issues can rise up during the winter months, disappearing when summer comes. This may not just be a quirk of personality but could be…Read More

Establishing the facts
There is no one kind of person who experiences an addiction, but Asana Lodge can offer help to everyone. When you contact our admissions team, we will run through a series of questions with you so that we can establish the facts about your addiction. This initial contact is hard, and many of our clients speak of a sense of shame at admitting they have a problem with drugs or alcohol.
But these questions are important as this allows us to get the information we require about what substances you’re addicted to, how much you consume and how long you’ve had an addiction for.
Answering these questions is a hard experience, but it allows us to work with you to build a picture of the kind of treatment that you’ll require. Alcohol rehab and drug rehab should be very individualised, as no person is the same and no addiction has the same impact on someone.
When we have established the facts about your addiction, we can arrange for you to come into our care and there is no wait for our services. Upon check in, we will perform a comprehensive assessment of your physical and mental health. If we identify an underlying mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety, we will treat that condition too. This is known as dual-diagnosis treatment.
The majority of our clients require either inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab, sometimes referred to as “residential rehab” is more suitable for those who have a more advanced state of addiction, and who do not have a supportive home life to aid with their recovery. Inpatient rehab requires you to stay in the care of Asana Lodge for a sustained period of time in order to have a focused, safe recovery.
Outpatient treatment allows you to receive the same industry leading care, but is better suited for those who have a supportive and safe life at home and who are not in an advanced addiction. It allows you to spend time at home with your family whilst you recover from an addiction.
When it’s established which treatment is best for your situation, your treatment will begin with a course of detox. Detox is necessary for the majority of our clients in order to break the physical and mental dependency on drugs or alcohol. Drug detox and alcohol detox can be a very difficult experience due to the onset of withdrawal symptoms as access to addictive substances is gradually tapered away.
For those in an advanced state of addiction, detoxification can be a very unpleasant experience and in order to alleviate any discomfort, Asana Lodge offer a medically assisted detox. This allows us to monitor your progress, address withdrawal symptoms and issue treatment via prescription medication if needed. This is a safe method to break free of drugs or alcohol and it is not recommended that you try to detox without professional assistance as withdrawal symptoms can be very dangerous.
When your detox has been completed, your therapies can commence. They will be offered on a group and individual basis. Group therapy allows you to share your problems with your peers and to learn from their experiences as well as share your own.
Individual sessions allow you to discuss your addictive behaviours with a counsellor and to make changes to how you perceive addiction though therapies such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
We also offer more holistic therapies, like exercise, yoga and music lessons.
When your treatment has finished, and you’re ready to return to your everyday life in Alum Rock, you will be discharged from our care with an aftercare plan. This plan is an essential part of your aftercare and relapse prevention.
Statistically, recovering addicts are at their most vulnerable in the immediate 12 months after their rehab and our plan will be in place to ensure your long-term recovery. You’ll have access to a 24 hour helpline, regular follow up sessions and contact details of local support groups – all the support you require to live your life free of addiction.
Get in touch with Asana Lodge today for more information about how to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction and to retake control of your life.

What is the difference between Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment?
Inpatient treatment is usually more suitable for people who have been suffering with an addiction for a long time and require longer term treatment. Inpatient treatment takes place in a residential rehab facility. Outpatient treatment allows aspects of your rehab to take place at home with the support and care of your family and is best suited to those who have identified and sought help for their addiction early.
How to know when to go to Rehab?
Rehab is necessary when you cannot live a normal life without drugs or alcohol, or you feel you are not in control of what you are consuming. Asana Lodge also provide alcohol intervention and family intervention for concerned friends and relatives.
How long does Rehab last?
There is no set answer as different people respond to different treatments in different timeframes. A minimum commitment of 28 days is usually required but it is not uncommon for rehab to be required for between 60 and 90 days when an addiction has taken hold.
If you or someone that you know and love is abusing alcohol or drugs and you believe that they have an addiction issue, it can be very difficult to get someone into a rehabilitation programme. Addiction is a disease and must be dealt with professionally to ensure long-term recovery is…Read More
