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

Our Detox Clinic Will Make Detoxification Safe
Alcohol withdrawal and/or drug abuse withdrawal can cause an individual to present with a lot of negative side effects. However, at Asana Lodge’s treatment centre, we have a state-of-the-art detox clinic. As the name suggests, this clinic will be a place where we can help you to pass through alcohol withdrawal and/or substance abuse withdrawal without the danger that would be present should you try to simply go “cold turkey” while at home.
Medically-assisted detox allows us to carefully assess your withdrawal process and prescribe appropriate medication to ease the transition that our body is undergoing from dependency to sobriety. All of the medication that you receive will be prescribed based upon your history with substances and it will not interfere with your recovery, only used as a way to prevent any danger you may be facing as a result of withdrawal side-effects.
Treatments For Drug And Alcohol Addiction
Some of the most effective treatments are initially likely to be the treatments that are conducted on a one-to-one basis — just between you and your assigned therapist. The treatments which operate like this are likely to be: CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy), grief and/or trauma counselling, and much more.
The purpose of behavioural therapies is largely to break down your thought patterns and enable you to reassess your relationship with substance abuse and/or alcohol abuse. Part of this will involve delving into your past and working out what ended up being the cause of you developing an addictive disorder. This will also play an integral part in your relapse prevention planning.
Group therapy will also be implemented as building a support network can help to make your recovery more sustainable. Sharing your experiences and learning from others who are further along the recovery journey can also be a very rewarding and inspirational experience.
Dual-diagnosis therapy can often be implemented in some cases. Dual-diagnosis therapy involves administering more standardised mental health therapies in tandem with addiction treatment in order to treat underlying mental health conditions as well as treating your addiction. While not everyone will require this course of treatment, it can be incredibly beneficial for those who do.
Finally, you will also be given access to our complimentary year-long aftercare programme once you leave our facility. Relapse prevention coaching, which you will undergo throughout your time with us, and our aftercare programme are both designed to work towards keeping you sober once you leave us. We do not just want to get you clean and then send you out into the world unsupported, we want to make sure that you stay clean.
Is it safe to detox at home?
In short, no it is not safe to detox at home. Detoxification can present a whole host of negative side-effects for a person, so to do so without professional medical aid can result in very negative outcomes and even potentially lead to death. It should also be noted that most people who try to detox on their own end up relapsing due to the severity of the withdrawal side-effects. However, each time that you relapse, the withdrawal side-effects can be even worse the next time. Therefore, it is not only safer to experience withdrawal at our detox clinic, but it will also put you in better stead going forward.
Does rehab work?
Residential rehab is one of the most effective ways to overcome your addictive disorder for the long-term. However, as mentioned earlier, you need to be committed to the process of recovery for it to have the necessary impact. Without being prepared to change how you live at the moment, then you cannot hope to benefit from any form of addition treatment. Addiction treatment is based around making positive changes to your physiology and psychology, so without being ready to change you have little hope of achieving the necessary end result.
How beneficial is residential rehab?
Residential rehab can benefit you in a multitude of ways. Obviously our drug and alcohol rehabilitation plans are perfect for getting you clean and sober, but we also want to make sure that you are ready to get the most out of life once you are sober. We encourage our patients to engage with many different types of activities while they are staying at our drug and alcohol treatment centre as finding alternative outlets for your internalised emotions will contribute towards a relapse prevention plan in the long term.
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
