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
Long-term recovery is a process. If you are just beginning to realise you need addiction treatment, then it may seem like a gargantuan task – with this feeling possibly stopping you from taking the steps needed.
But realisation itself is the first step of rehabilitation. Not everyone can accept they have lost control and need help to fix their life. Whether you have made this step before and faltered or just realising you may be going down a dark road, it doesn’t matter, help is out there and waiting for you.
At Asana Lodge we offer drug and alcohol treatment that is progressive, built upon a culture of care and acceptance that puts our clients at ease every step of their recovery journey. Together we can help you forge through a personalised treatment programme and come out the other side, giving you the best chance at leaving drug and alcohol abuse behind.

The Benefits of Inpatient Rehab
When looking at booking yourself into a rehabilitation centre there are two options: inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab. We at Asana Lodge believe the most effective treatment is done when a person stays in the facility, having access to the care and resources they need 24/7.
If looking to attend drug rehab on an inpatient basis then the admission process can be very quick – treatment able to commence days after your initial enquiry. Sometimes in these situations, time is of the essence – it is better to move fast before minds change and will weaken.
For those family members looking at a possible intervention, whether it be a drug or alcohol intervention, inpatient rehab provides the best option. Getting a loved one, friend or colleague away from their current environment is a vital step in helping them move on from drugs and alcohol.
Time away from old settings will help you recover and reset, giving you a chance to break out of the destructive cycle you may find yourself in. Asana Lodge offers premier accommodation in a secluded and calm location, giving you access to 24/7 care, an array of therapy options and the opportunity to be among people in a similar situation.
With inpatient rehab, you give yourself a much greater chance at achieving long-term recovery and turning your life around permanently. This path will cost more, but the investment is worth the possible reward.
Addiction Treatment at Asana Lodge
At Asana Lodge the comprehensive and progressive addiction treatment you will be undertaking is geared towards dealing with both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. The treatment options available are vast and the programme you take part in is tailored towards your recovery needs.
The physical aspect is built around drug or alcohol detox. This medically induced detoxification process is vital as the harmful toxins are purged from your system and you are guided through drug or alcohol withdrawal by care professionals. In this homely and comfortable setting, you will go through a particularly stressful period in the best conditions possible, assured of the fact that you are safe and being treated to the highest standard.
Psychological therapy will be the basis of your treatment at Asana Lodge. With one-on-one sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and stress management you will dive deeper into your thought processes, handling of situations and discover ways in which to break the negative patterns dominating your life.
For those suffering from concurrent mental health problems, we ensure you get the correct help and offer dual-diagnosis treatment. We have several mental health therapy options available to help you deal with the separate condition alongside combating your addiction problems.
Aftercare and Relapse Prevention
Whilst getting to and going through drug and alcohol rehab is a big part of the journey, a lot of the hard work comes afterwards. People coming out of rehab may feel overwhelmed and worried about returning to the environment where their addictions began and thrived.
This is a completely natural response – and one at Asana Lodge that we anticipate.
Since most relapses occur within one year of completing rehab, Asana Lodge offers a personalised 12-month aftercare package, focused on relapse prevention. At Asana Lodge we have a dedicated aftercare support team that consider your addiction and medical history, behaviour patterns and social environment to craft the best plan for you. With a bigger picture of what could trigger you the aftercare team finds the best way to support you in your life after rehab.
With weekly support meetings and check-in sessions with a trusted therapist, you can begin building a support network that you can reach out to when things get tough. If regular meetings aren’t enough then additional CBT sessions may be available along with other types of ongoing therapy.
The support is not limited to you and can include options such as family therapy and family drug support to help you and your loved ones rebuild the relationships and trust that may have been damaged due to addiction.

Is it safe to detox at home?
Detoxing without any medical guidance and alone, known as going cold turkey, is a path that some addicts take. If you can afford to undergo medical detoxification then this is recommended. The severity of withdrawal is impossible to predict and there can be complications that may result in a medical emergency. Seizures and delirium tremens caused by withdrawal can result in death. Without medication or care, the process may be very unpleasant and increase the risk of relapse.
Does rehab work?
Rehab very much increases the chance of long-term recovery succeeding. No one can know the future, but an effective addiction treatment will give you the tools to be able to cope with issues that may lay down the road. The success of rehab rests on you and the work you put into getting and staying sober. Rehab isn’t an exact science, but it works for those willing to let it.
How beneficial is residential rehab?
Extremely beneficial. The intensive short burst nature of residential rehab quickly gets you clean and starts you on the journey towards remaining sober. Through residential rehab you will live and breathe the recovery lifestyle, learning tools and techniques to help you cope afterwards to introduce you to a support network that could last for years. With residential rehab, you can see you are not alone on your journey – an aspect of recovery that cannot be emphasised enough.
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
