Are you searching for a way to recover from your drug addiction, alcohol addiction or gambling addiction?
Any kind of addiction can have a detrimental impact on many aspects of your life. From damaging your physical and mental well-being, to destroying careers and relationships with loved ones, there are no positives when it comes to addiction.
If you’re tired of being controlled by your addiction, then we have the solution for you. Our drug and alcohol rehab Colwyn Bay has helped countless people overcome their substance abuse; we can help you too.
What is Addiction?
There are so many people who are suffering from an addiction that might not even be able to recognise it as what it really is yet. It’s very common for these people to downplay their symptoms and even be in denial about their condition in an attempt to make it easier for themselves and for those around them.
If you feel as though you’re struggling with substance abuse, it’s so important to remember that you’re not alone. The charity Action on Addiction states that 1 in 3 people are addicted to something, according to the NHS. It’s very likely that you interact with people who are living with addiction on a regular basis, you just might not realise it.
The NHS describes addiction as not having control over something, taking, or using something to the point where it could be harmful to you. Whilst addiction is mostly associated with drugs, alcohol, gambling, and smoking, it’s also possible to become addicted to work, gaming, solvents, the internet, sex, and shopping.
These are all problems which are prevalent in the UK and are issues which we deal with every day at our private drug and alcohol rehab. There’s no need to feel ashamed about coming to us for support; you’re taking the most important step to turning your life around for good.
What happens at Our Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Colwyn Bay?
It’s only natural to have plenty of questions around what happens at our drug and alcohol rehab. For some reason, there seems to be some misconceptions surrounding rehabilitation centres. There’s an impression that they’re cold, clinical, even hospital like; we can assure you, this couldn’t be further from the truth at our rehab in Colwyn Bay.
Each of our clients benefits from the privacy of their own room within our luxury accommodation. They will also receive nutritious meals each day to aid with their recovery, in addition to all of their housekeeping and laundry needs taken care of throughout the duration of their stay with us. This allows you to focus on only one thing with no distractions – your long-term recovery from addiction.
Our friendly team are all experts in their field and treat each client with the utmost respect, discretion, and compassion. Our recovery workers consist of doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, and counsellors, many of whom have experienced drug and alcohol rehabilitation themselves so are able to offer a first-hand insight into what you’re going through.
They’re there to support you every step of the way, in any way that they can to ensure you achieve your recovery goals.
After welcoming you into our residential rehab, we will carry out an assessment which gives us a greater opportunity to get to know you and understand the specifics of your addiction to alcohol or drugs.
During this assessment, we will try to identify the underlying reasons of what caused your addiction. This is a very important factor and will contribute significantly to your overall recovery. Being able to identify the root of your addiction will also help you to recognise your triggers, and in turn prevent any potential relapses from occurring.
Do you need to go through Detoxification?
Whilst we personalise all of our client’s drug and alcohol rehab treatments, it’s quite likely that we’ll recommend a drug or alcohol detoxification for most people. The reason for this is that we have such a high success rate for detoxification, it’s by far the most effective way to gradually remove the harmful toxins from your body which are there as a result of your substance abuse.
This reduction in consumption of alcohol or drugs must be done slowly and safely, in a controlled environment where you can be supervised 24/7 by a team of medical professionals; this is exactly what we offer at our drug and alcohol rehab Colwyn Bay.
We can’t stress the importance of undergoing a detoxification in the presence of professionals. There are some people who attempt to detox at home alone. These detoxifications are not effective, they’re not safe, and they can lead to irreversible physical and psychological damage, even death.
The danger of detoxification comes from withdrawal symptoms which are a common side effect of detoxing. You’ll never know what withdrawal symptoms you’ll experience or how serious they could be, but they can range from mild nausea, dizziness, and headaches to severe seizures, insomnia, and delirium tremens, in which case you’ll require urgent medical attention.
If necessary, our team will be able to prescribe you with medication to ease the discomfort of your withdrawal symptoms.
Drug and Alcohol Aftercare Programme
Clients typically stay at our residential rehab for around 28 days. Once you’ve completed your treatment programme, you will of course return home to continue your recovery journey. This first year after leaving rehab is known to be the most difficult as it’s when you’re most likely to suffer from a drug or alcohol relapse.
This is why we provide a completely free 12-month aftercare programme for all of our clients, to ensure they continue their rehabilitation effectively at home. We can offer extra therapy sessions as required in addition to dedicated helplines to support you when you need it most.
