In the UK, there is a big culture surrounding drinking. Particularly the normalisation of binge drinking when with others. While abusing alcohol under any circumstances is never recommended, it is better than if you were to drink the same amount when you are out with your friends when you are…Read More
Drug and alcohol addiction continues to be a persistent issue in our society. The UK in some way prides itself on its destructive drinking and drug culture – careful not to look at the damage that full-blown addiction can cause.
Many of those whose drug and alcohol abuse has turned into a worsening addiction find themselves lost and seemingly alone. We at Asana Lodge believe that no one is beyond help, delivering progressive care and rehabilitation to people all over the country that need it.

Going to a Rehab in Barking or Looking Further Afield?
If you are looking for a rehab facility beyond Barking, then Asana Lodge offers an inpatient rehab experience that promises to provide the greatest level of care. You may however be looking for an outpatient rehab nearer to you where you can remain close to loved ones and continue life without interruption.
While this suits some people, if your addiction is severe enough then putting yourself into residential rehab may be the best step. Asana Lodge is in a secluded, homely environment in Northamptonshire – boasting an array of great facilities including a gym and extensive grounds for walks and outdoor exercise.
Our admissions process is quick and thorough, giving you the ability to be in our facility within days of your initial enquiry. For those of you looking to help a loved one or friend, we offer a range of family and friend referral services and family drug support. We can also guide you on family interventions and interventions based on drugs, alcohol and gambling.
Treatment Options at Asana Lodge
Your treatment at Asana Lodge will deal with both the physical and psychological sides of addiction. The physical side usually pertains to the symptoms as the substances in have caused your body to deteriorate. This is treated by detoxing.
Detox is the process of flushing harmful toxins from your body and ridding its dependence on substances. Our detoxification process is medically administered, using medication to ease the worst of drug/alcohol withdrawal symptoms that will arise once you stop ingesting substances.
Though the process will be unpleasant, depending on the severity of your addiction, with medication, a calm environment and being watched over by professionals this period will be as stress-free as is possible.
Therapy Options at Asana Lodge
After the completion of a thorough drug or alcohol detox programme, much of your time at Asana Lodge will be spent in therapy. This may sound daunting at first, but the point of drug and alcohol rehab is to uncover the causes of your addiction problems and find ways to end the destructive cycle you find yourself in.
With a combination of psychological and well-being-based therapies, our progressive approach to addiction treatment will allow you to examine your addiction and come out with the techniques and tools to handle it in the future. One-on-one therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and stress management will help you with problem-solving, turning around negative thought patterns, and looking after yourself better.
You will also take part in group therapy sessions – giving you the chance to form relationships with other clients and possibly begin to build a support network that could last long after your time with us. Group activities such as walks and film nights will occur so that you can maintain socialisation despite being apart from the outside world.
If you are suffering from concurrent mental health issues, then we provide dual-diagnosis treatment. Combining mental health and addiction treatment, we ensure that you have access to the resources needed to overcome your addiction whilst not negatively impacting your mental health.
Life at Rehab: Aftercare & Relapse Prevention
The first year after rehab is a vital time in your recovery journey. Many people that leave our rehabilitation centre feel nervous about what the future holds and whether they are capable of remaining sober. The first thing is to remember these overwhelming feelings are common – you are not alone in the fight, and we at Asana Lodge are here to help.
To help you through this taxing period Asana Lodge offers 12-months of free aftercare.
Our aftercare plan consists of weekly sessions held over Zoom with our addiction recovery specialists who can track your progress. Using these resources is so vital to relapse prevention and those that make the most of them have a greater chance at maintaining sobriety.

How do you convince someone to go to rehab?
There is no set path to getting someone the help they need. You don’t know how people will react and it can turn into a very stressful situation. Getting educated about addiction as a disease, researching possible rehab options and looking for professional help are good ways to approach the topic. Having answers for possible reservations and being supported by a professional may put the person you are trying to convince more at ease and more amenable to the idea. The best thing you can do is to be understanding and avoid negativity.
What should I pack for rehab?
You should only bring the essentials when you come to rehab. Enough clothes to last (there is a laundry available), outdoor clothing, clothes to exercise in, toiletries, prescribed medication, maybe a book. Bringing electronics such as your phone or a laptop is fine, but you may be limited to how much you can use these devices. Rehab is about getting away from the distractions of the outside world to focus on getting better.
What is outpatient rehab?
Outpatient rehab is when you undergo addiction treatment during the day without staying full-time at the facility. If you want to keep your normal day to day routine, then outpatient rehab affords you flexibility and you don’t have to take time away from your family and friends. With outpatient rehab, you will still receive the same high standard care as inpatient rehab but are more likely to come up against daily triggers and temptations. Outpatient rehab has a lower success rate but is the cheaper option and might be more suitable for those with milder addictions.
Alcohol is commonly mistaken for an aphrodisiac, but it can have a negative impact on your sex life as it reduces your sexual sensitivity. As you consume alcohol, your blood alcohol level increases, and as it’s an antidepressant, it can decrease your sexual desire, dampen your mood, and make it…Read More
