Do you now find yourself searching for the benefits that yoga and meditation have on addiction and mental health recovery? If you answered yes to the above questions, you have come to the right place. When an addiction is present, it is not uncommon for the individual suffering to…Read More
The process of addiction recovery can be a confusing time. You may feel pulled from pillar to post when considering your drug and alcohol cravings, and your desires to recover. You may feel understand pressure when considering your family expectations. You may feel overwhelmed with the multitude of recovery routes out there.
If you do feel stuck, unsure or exhausted, while testing to deal with, this is a common reaction to taking the leap towards drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Yet with the right support, guidance, and with clarity, you can soon see a way out from the tests, the obstacles and the pressures of substance abuse and addiction recovery.
As many of our clients here at Asana Lodge approach us with little awareness of their recovery options, we hope to increase your awareness, helping to ease such feelings of confusion. Through greater insight, into rehab, into timescales, into expected recovery steps, we hope that you’ll soon be in the right headspace to make use of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Here’s some insight, through a relevant Q&A surrounding recovery routes, visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick, and the admission process here at our specialist treatment centre.
Why is it hard to recover through NHS treatment services?
NHS treatment services are commonly a first port of call for many individuals, suffering from addiction. Here in the UK, it is our natural reaction to make use of our wonderful healthcare system. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why many individuals do select to add to the waiting list of such treatment services.
However, down to an increase in demand for mental health and habitual support services, it’s become challenging to secure immediate help, on a consistent basis, to cater to each individual’s needs.
In order to overcome an addiction, residential, intensive, personalised and urgent care, addiction treatment sessions and guidance are required. Now it’s easy to see how challenging this degree of focus can be to secure through free treatment services.
For some individuals, such services do offer respite from drug and alcohol abuse. For those with minimal addictive behaviours, the timespan of the waiting lists is bearable. However, for those with life-limiting, ongoing addictions, it can be very difficult to continue life, while enabling drug and alcohol consumption.
Down to the risk of intensified habits and the dangers of substance abuse, private care is therefore encouraged, if possible, via a residential drug and alcohol rehab clinic.
Should I instead consider a drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick?
Considering a drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick will be a wise move, instead of waiting for NHS treatment services. However, again, local recovery services will benefit some individuals, more than others.
Down to the unpredictability of localised recovery, commonly linked to distractions, psychological influences and the challenges of familiarity, we at Asana Lodge advocate residential rehab.
While we’re located away from Berwick, we can stand as a strong option for you, by providing a homely setting to recover from, while benefiting from the value of private rehabilitation.
Deciding on rehab, based on which clinic to visit and the type of programme you hope to invest in, is in your hands. You have the flexibility to visit a private rehab clinic, anywhere across the UK.
With this in mind, if you’re open to the most intensive and progressive form of rehab, you can look beyond a drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick if you wish. We’re located in Towcester, recognised as leading specialists in the addiction recovery field, providing a personal rehab programme, catered to your needs.
How soon can I start rehab?
If you’re ready to embark on rehab, you can soon start your personal programme. However, before beginning, you will need to complete an admission process, which we place great emphasis on here at Asana Lodge.
In most cases, the rehab admission process is overlooked and is merely seen as the way into rehab. However, this is the moment we work to understand your needs, with the passion to then cater to your needs through our rehabilitation recommendations.
The admission process will include an evaluation, mainly around your lifestyle, your health, your influences, your drug and alcohol consumption, and your addiction history. Through each evaluation, we can then utilise accurate, personal data, which will remain confidential, to lead the way through safe and suitable treatment recommendations.
It’s understandable that our approach may feel long-winded. We understand that for some, acting with urgency is mandatory before aggressive drug and alcohol cravings kick in. Our admission process is quick yet effective, helping you experience the best start possible of rehab.
How long will rehab take?
On average, residential rehab will last 28 days. This is the ideal timescale to meet key recovery milestones, including withdrawal, including restoration, including rehabilitation, and including relapse prevention.
Anything shorter will likely rush the process, and anything longer will begin to demotivate our clients. You can therefore expect to stay at Asana Lodge for a few weeks, to complete intensive addiction treatment services, followed by aftercare on your return home to Berwick.
What will life be like after rehab?
Life after rehab will be different for every individual. While the foundations of recovery can be achieved through residential rehab, post-rehab steps will be in your hands, ultimately dictating how your lifestyle will pan out.
For all clients, aftercare will be available, lifestyle changes will be promoted, and relapse prevention will be highlighted. Ongoing support is invaluable through the post-rehab transition, to help you climatise to sober living and the decisions that come with long-term recovery. However, as we’ve mentioned higher up, every experience will be different, requiring varying levels and form of support.
We must share that post-rehab life will carry some obstacles, at some point. Drug and alcohol exposure may increase relapse risks. However, through a carefully utilised relapse prevention plan, ongoing accountability and lifestyle management, you can, to a degree, control your new life.
Right now, you may still feel confused. You may feel unsure whether Asana lodge is the place for you, or whether visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Berwick will be suitable.
If this is the case, feel free to contact our team for a confidential, no-obligation chat, to help you feel sure of your next steps of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
