Finding a Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Burslem
When deciding on a rehab centre, your first inclination may be to stay within your local area. Many people have life commitments that they cannot easily leave for a time to go and undergo treatment.
People in this frame of mind usually attend rehab on an outpatient basis. This means that you go to a clinic to undergo treatment but remain in your home and can work your recovery plans around your daily schedule.
This is a viable option and is more readily available through the NHS and local organisations. If you are not sure of the options available locally then you could contact your GP for more information.
If you have a severe addiction then booking yourself into an inpatient private rehab is the most effective pathway for you. What’s important though is that you keep an open mind and do your research before deciding.
There are many paths to sobriety. Find the one that is right for you.
Choosing a Rehab Centre Away from Home
If you are suffering from a severe addiction then looking far afield for a rehab centre may be an option. Residential rehab provides the most effective pathway to overcome addiction and achieve long-term recovery.
Asana Lodge is such a facility, providing industry-leading treatment in an idyllic location. Residential treatment can provide a much-needed break from your everyday life – allowing you to disrupt destructive habits and get away from an environment where your addiction grew.
Asana Lodge is a facility that has been created to encourage recovery and relaxation. With us, you can be calm and comfortable – totally focusing on your treatment without distraction.
Residential rehab also gives you access to quality treatment that you may not find locally or on an outpatient basis.
The success rate is much higher in residential rehab. While it may seem like a big commitment, in the long term it will be worth it.
Detoxing at Residential Rehab
The first major part of rehab is detoxification.
Lasting approximately a week, detox in rehab will help end your physical dependence on the harmful substances in your body. At Asana Lodge you will go through a medically assisted detox programme. Medication will be administered by professionals to curb the worst withdrawal symptoms and keep you comfortable.
During this period, you will be fed nutritious meals to encourage the healing processes in your body and replace much-needed vitamins.
All done within our luxury facility, you should come out of the other end much better than when you came in. An effective detox will leave you in a better state to begin the real work of recovery and deal with the psychological aspect of your addiction.
What Happens in Rehab After Detox?
After dealing with the physical side of addiction, you will onto the therapy portion of your addiction programme. To effectively conquer your addiction, you need to better understand it – why it happened and how can you stop it from happening again. Therapy allows you to delve into yourself and discover how you can change ingrained patterns of behaviour.
Individual psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, stress management and relapse prevention sessions will give you the skills to break negative cycles and cope with your cravings.
These sessions will work alongside group therapy sessions. In these group settings, you will talk with fellow clients about your respective recovery journeys and hopefully build a support network. Knowing you are not alone in your struggles is vital to achieving your recovery goals.
Beyond the evidence-based therapies, you will have the chance to take part in well-being therapies. Asana Lodge offers these as part of our holistic approach to addiction treatment, putting your mental wellbeing and comfort at the core of what we do here. Mindfulness, art therapy and sleep management are all activities you can do to relax.
With that idea of mental wellbeing, we also provide dual-diagnosis treatment to those suffering from concurrent mental health issues. We provide a range of mental health treatments alongside your addiction treatment to ensure you are well-cared for and not being neglected in any way.
Beyond Rehab – Aftercare & Relapse Prevention
After being in the clutches of addiction, rehab may feel like the destination. While you should feel a great sense of accomplishment in completing your addiction treatment, it is important to remember that rehab is just another step on the journey.
Some of the toughest steps can come next.
Upon finishing rehab many people feel overwhelmed. Now in the outside world, they struggle to put into action what they have learnt. Returning to old environments where temptation may be all around is hard to deal with and many recovering addicts slip back into old habits.
With most relapses occurring within the first few months of treatment, Asana Lodge is dedicated to decreasing the chances of this happening to you. Asana Lodge offers a free 12-month aftercare package to guide you through that first year of sobriety and ensure that the work you did with us does not go to waste.
This aftercare package will help you hone the techniques you have learnt at rehab and give you access to weekly support meetings. Aftercare is a vital tool in relapse prevention and those that engage with it are much more likely to achieve long-term recovery.
