If you are suffering from a drug addiction, gambling addition or alcohol addiction, you will probably be aware that you have lost control of your life.

Signs of an Addiction
Experiencing a descent into an addiction is an extremely distressing time in someone’s life. In the space of a few weeks, you can go from normality to the depths of an addiction. There are signs and symptoms that you may notice.
Someone experiencing an addiction will experience a personality change very quickly, someone who was previously open and friendly might become agitated and withdrawn. You may notice that a previously hard-working colleague becomes unreliable and makes mistakes, underperforms at their job, or is constantly off work to the extent that they lose their job.
Someone may also experience severe weight loss in a short period of time and their behaviour changes to the extent they partake in shifty behaviour that may lead to them encountering trouble with the law or authorities as they seek to feed their habit.
Witnessing this happening to someone you care about is an incredibly upsetting experience. Those suffering from the addiction are often in denial about their condition and denial is a very big problem that can cost lives.
Please act today if you, or someone you love, is exhibiting the signs of an addiction.
When you call us, we will perform an initial consultation over the telephone in which we’ll establish the extent of your addiction and your general health. Unlike local NHS services, there is no delay in admitting you to our rehab clinic and if you decide that Asana Lodge are best placed to help you with drug rehab or alcohol rehab, then we can begin treatment right away.
Private drug and alcohol rehab is not the cheapest solution but we are transparent with our pricing, there are no hidden costs and we’ll work with you to establish the best treatment plan for your budget.
When you arrive at our clinic in Bishop’s Stortford, we’ll give you a full tour of our rehabilitation clinic and introduce you to your keyworkers. When you’ve been checked in by our admissions team, we will perform a full assessment of your physical and mental health. When this has been done, we will usually recommend a 28-day course of residential rehab.
On the face of it, this may seem like a long time to be away from your normal life but an extended period in our rehab clinic allows you to recover in safety and away from negative influences that may otherwise cause you to abuse drugs or alcohol. Residential rehab allows you to step away from your life and concentrate only on your recovery.
Detox and Therapies in Bishop’s Stortford
Almost all of our clients require a period of detoxification. This allows us to flush out the negative toxins from your body that will have built up as a result of sustained drug or alcohol abuse. A detox is a difficult experience as your body will react negatively via withdrawal symptoms.
These can be mild, from excessive sweating and nausea to serious, such as convulsions. However, our medical team will be on hand to help provide you with prescription medication to alleviate any discomfort and to ensure your safety. A detox can last as long as two weeks dependent on the severity of your addiction.
When your detoxification has been completed, we will move you onto the therapies part of your treatment. Individual sessions, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness, allow you to explore your addiction as a mental illness, your triggers and why it developed in the first place as well as how to change your mindset moving forwards.
Group sessions allow you to interact with your fellow recovering addicts. You can learn from the experiences of others and put forward your own problems to share with the group. It’s in these sessions that you develop coping mechanisms which you will learn from other people.
Asana Lodge Aftercare
Once your treatment has been completed, we will draw up an aftercare plan. This is essential to ensure that you are prepared for your return to life outside of rehab and to help you navigate the testing first year after your treatment.
In order to help with relapse prevention, we’ll provide you with contact details for local support groups, invite you to regular follow up appointments and you’ll have access to a 24-hour helpline.
Every day is of importance when someone has an addiction. So, if you have any questions, concerns or worries about an addiction, please call Asana Lodge today on 01908 489421 and see how we can help provide you with a pathway to a life free of addiction.
