Alcohol is a toxin that most of us have tried in our lives. And whilst some of us enjoy a tipple more than others, alcohol can have an impact on your health when consumed in large quantities. Alcohol is a stimulant, and, therefore, often elevates blood pressure and heart rate,…Read More
Accepting that you have an addiction to alcohol or drugs and seeking out professional help is the first step towards changing your life for the better, and it’s an incredibly huge step to take.

Worrying about your health, how your addiction is affecting others, and wondering what support is available to you can be exhausting and very overwhelming. Our drug and alcohol rehab Dacorum can offer accurate advice and help you overcome your substance abuse battle.

Our Rehab Programme
An outpatient rehab service is available; we highly recommend you join us as an inpatient at Asana Lodge. You can receive 24/7 care and support whilst taking advantage of our high-specification rehab centre and expert knowledge from our addiction specialists. You will have your own private room, all your laundry and housekeeping took care of, and all your meals home-cooked onsite to ensure your nutrition is supported as you go through rehabilitation.
We have an excellent team of addiction specialists who dedicate their time to helping you along your road to recovery every step of the way. Many have experienced addiction first-hand, so they can offer an excellent insight into what helped them recover from drug or alcohol addiction.
We will usually begin your treatment programme with a drug or alcohol detox before moving on to your psychological therapy sessions. Medical detox will help to remove your physical connection to drugs or alcohol, whereas psychological therapies will help to break your psychological connection to the substance.
You won’t recover fully from addiction with just one of these; it’s crucial that you address both aspects of your addiction to achieve your long-term recovery.
Drug and Alcohol Detox – What to Expect
We will begin your addiction treatment with alcohol and drug detoxification. This is where we will supervise a gradual reduction in your drug or alcohol consumption. This must be undertaken only in a safe and controlled environment like our drug and alcohol rehab Dacorum.
There have been many failed attempts at people trying to detox at home without professional support, which is extremely dangerous. The danger lies with the withdrawal symptoms that typically occur when you’re going through a detox. These can include mood swings, headaches, dizziness, nausea, lack of appetite, insomnia, and even seizures.
Therefore, it’s incredibly important to consider a detox only under the medical supervision of a team of experts. They will monitor you throughout the entire process and can administer prescribed medication to ease your discomfort if necessary.

How Much Does Rehab Cost at Asana Lodge?
The cost of rehab varies hugely depending on which facility you choose to undertake your rehabilitation and whether you join as an outpatient or an inpatient. Subsided or free addiction treatment is available with local health services like the NHS; however, these are typically generic treatment plans which don’t usually result in long-term success.
Joining a private rehab centre can appear to be daunting because of the costs associated with it. However, your chances of full recovery are much higher than if you were to receive treatment with the NHS; we believe it’s a much better way to overcome your addiction whilst avoiding additional disappointment through failed attempts.
There are charities and other funding schemes which may help towards the cost of a private treatment programme. You’ll need to enquire with the rehab centre to see what’s available.
One Year of Free Aftercare
Possibly the most important aspect of your drug or alcohol rehabilitation is what you do once you return home. Transitioning back into home life can be very difficult, particularly if there are negative influences or distractions at home. Therefore, our drug and alcohol rehab Dacorum offers each person a free aftercare plan for 12 months after leaving our rehab centre.
This continued support is essential in helping you to stay motivated and avoid a drug or alcohol relapse. We have a dedicated team who can arrange additional therapy sessions as you need them. This could include ongoing counselling, either on your own or with your family, cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT), stress management, and relapse prevention.
We also recommend joining local support networks like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, as sharing your journey with others in a similar situation has proven to help many people along their road to recovery.
