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

For the Best Care Choose Inpatient Rehab
While you might be thinking, ‘wouldn’t a rehab near me be better?’, choosing to go to stay in a facility, away from your home, might be the best path to take. Though there are many good services and rehabs in Fulham, Asana Lodge is a premier drug and alcohol rehab. Since opening our doors we have supported thousands of clients, providing a secure environment and access to progressive addiction treatment that gets results.
Outpatient rehab provides the comfort of familiarity and comes at a cheaper cost but carries with it the increased risk of relapse. Staying within the environment where your addiction began and grew can leave you susceptible to daily triggers and temptation before you have completed drug and alcohol treatment.
Away from distractions and in a place created to help you succeed in your recovery, Asana Lodge’s addiction treatment is comprehensive and built upon a culture of care and understanding. We help you deal with both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction and you will find the inner strength to begin turning your life around and end the cycle of drug and alcohol abuse.
The Detoxification Process at Asana Lodge
Detoxing is the process of flushing harmful toxins from your body – hangs over the idea of rehab. Those conjured up Hollywood images of sweating profusely, strapped to a hospital bed and experiencing the worst pain whilst being weaned off drugs are commonplace in the mind of people.
At Asana Lodge at least, drug or alcohol detox is nothing like that. Medically induced detox is adopted to ease the worst of symptoms you may experience during drug and/or alcohol withdrawal. Completed at our detox clinic and watched over by medical professionals, you will go through withdrawal in a safe and comforting environment and come out the other side clear-headed and healthier.
From this platform, you can move on to dealing with the psychological side of addiction.
Therapy Options Available at Asana Lodge
After detox, the focus of your treatment turns to therapy. Through a combination of individual and group therapies, you will begin to open up about your struggles and explore the reasons behind your addiction. Utilising therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and stress management you will also learn about how to deal with triggers that you may face in the outside world and how to deal with difficult moments in your life.
Asana Lodge also focuses on our client’s well-being – giving you access to therapy treatments catered to help you reflect and relax. During your time with us, you will have access to more holistic therapies such as art therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy.
We understand the importance of self-care and encourage participation in all types of therapy to ensure an effective and comprehensive treatment experience.
For those looking for help for mental health problems alongside their addiction, dual-diagnosis treatment is available. Mental health and addiction can become closely entwined and we provide a programme that will help every part of you, rather than just focussing on your addiction.
Relapse prevention is the name of the game when leaving rehab. If we’ve done our job at Asana Lodge, then hopefully the chances of you returning for treatment are slim. To try and mitigate the chance of relapse we provide a free 12-month aftercare package – giving you the support you need in them anxious months just after rehab.
Devised by our aftercare support team, this plan is tailored towards you and your needs. You will be encouraged to attend weekly support meetings over Zoom that could provide the foundation to a support network that lasts for many years to come. Family drug support and all other forms of guidance are available as we understand the importance of those familial connections. Rehab isn’t the be-all and end-all of recovery – it’s just one part of the journey. With the help and guidance Asana provides, you will always have support in those difficult times.

What is the difference between substance and behavioural addictions?
Substance addiction means being addicted to drugs or alcohol, stuff that you can put into your body to change the chemistry of it. 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.
Does addiction affect mental health?
Yes, addiction can have a massive effect on a person’s mental health. Addiction often intensifies a person’s current mental health issues as substances cloud the mind and impair judgement. Drinking or taking drugs can worsen depression, heighten anxiety, and start a cycle where a person feels they can only cope with their mental health problems by self-medicating with those substances.
What happens after rehab?
After leaving rehab you will have access to our aftercare package, focused on relapse prevention. Many people leaving rehab continue to attend support meetings and stay connected with former addicts to increase the chances of long-term recovery. Hopefully, during your time with us you will have learnt techniques and tips to help you deal with triggers and urges. The hope is that whatever happens after rehab, it’s better than what came before.
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
