Frequently Asked Questions
How long does rehab last?
A typical programme with us at Asana Lodge usually takes around 28 days – that programme includes drug or alcohol detox. After this period, you will be physically sober and hopefully feel ready to return to your normal life. Some people can afford to stay in rehab longer and programmes can run up to 12 weeks in some facilities. What is important is that you pick the programme that suits your circumstances and recovery goals.
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.
What is the difference between substance and behavioural addictions?

Behavioural addiction is centred around being addicted to activities. Gambling, sex, and playing video games are all things people can become addicted to. Substance addiction can cause more physical problems as you are putting toxins into your body whereas behavioural addiction only has psychological effects but can lead to physical issues such as self-harming and suicide.
