However, long-term maintenance of…Read More
There are many signs which could mean that you require the support of a drug and alcohol rehab. If you’ve found yourself excessively consuming drugs or alcohol, you’ll likely notice a quick deterioration in your physical and psychological health.
As this addictive substance becomes your fixation, your relationships with family and friends get left behind which can be difficult to repair.
You’ll likely be struggling to meet the expected standards at work and could even be at risk of losing your home as drug and alcohol abuse has such a significant financial impact.
All of these signs don’t coincide with a happy, healthy life. There is a way that you can change your negative behaviours and turn your life around for the better.
We can guide you along your journey to a successful long-term recovery.
How does our admissions process work?
Taking the first step towards seeking drug and alcohol treatment can be very difficult. It’s very common for those who are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse to experience a form of denial as they avoid any acknowledgement of the problem.
Once you’ve made the brave decision to contact our rehab in Basildon, your journey to a healthier life free from alcohol or drugs is one step closer.
Our team of admission specialists are waiting to hear from you and are ready to advise what the best course of action is for your specific situation. We’ll talk you through all of the essential information and explain our addiction treatments in more detail.
All of this can be done over the phone, email or through online chat on our website, whatever you’re comfortable with. This is the perfect time to ask as many questions as you like, we’re here to help you make the best decision for you.
If you’re happy to proceed, we will take you through a pre-admissions process where we carry out an assessment of your physical and psychological health. This helps us to understand the nature of your drug and alcohol abuse and to also determine the best treatment options for your condition.
This assessment is completely free and is of course, strictly confidential. Once we have gone through this, we’ll be able to discuss your proposed addiction treatment in more detail and a possible admissions date to join our rehab in Basildon if you’re happy to go ahead.
You’ll be warmly welcomed by our recovery team who will show you around and make sure you’re settled in before beginning your treatment programme. You can enjoy the privacy of your own room, home-cooked meals and the 24/7 support of our friendly team.

How does stress management work?
One of the psychological therapies we offer for drug and alcohol abuse is stress management. Stress increases motivation and helps us to grow and perform which is good for our physical health.
When you reach the optimal level of stress, commonly known as the ‘fight or flight’ response this can actually be quite beneficial. However, as many people are aware, stress can become overwhelming as it surpasses its optimal levels, we don’t want this high level of stress to become the norm, so it needs to be addressed immediately.
We utilise biofeedback stress reduction to bring stress levels back down to an optimal level, this avoids any traumatic or chronic stress. As we specialise in cognitive and mental health recovery, we follow your brain activity and functionality to improve your mental health and in turn, control any side effects you’re experiencing from drug and alcohol abuse or any other condition.
Increased stress levels can cause sleep deprivation, heightened heart rate, muscle tension, and anxiety, in severe cases stress can gradually deteriorate your physical and psychological functionality.
If you were to undergo biofeedback stress reduction, it’ll help you to identify the stressor which you can then learn to control in order to reduce stress levels. This therapy is highly effective in practising stress management whilst also avoiding any side effects of prescription medication.
It’s also very beneficial to practise deep breathing exercises, mindfulness, and regular physical activity, alongside biofeedback stress reduction to aid with stress management.
This is where our well-being therapies come into great use as they teach you fantastic self-help tips such as mindfulness, yoga, and relaxation and sleep management, all of which are highly advantageous when going through drug and alcohol rehab.
