It takes someone very brave to recognise that they need professional support for their drug and alcohol abuse.
Even though it could be quite clear that your addiction is getting out of control, it can sometimes be difficult to actually admit that you have a problem; denial is very common in these types of situations.
It’s important to note that if you don’t seek help for your addiction to alcohol or drugs, it will only get worse. Prolonged substance abuse can lead to a wide variety of severe physical and psychological health issues.
These could include heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, and even put you at more risk of suicide. Don’t let drug and alcohol abuse take over your life, contact our team today on 01908 489 421 and take the first step to living a life free from addiction.
Drug and alcohol abuse is more common than you may think
More people in the UK are becoming susceptible to drug or alcohol addiction. Once you’re addicted, it can be a vicious circle to get out of, but there is a way out. There are many different reasons why someone may begin abusing drugs or alcohol, whether it’s stress, peer pressure, environmental influences, or a way to cope with a traumatic experience. Each person’s journey into addiction is completely unique, so their drug and alcohol rehab should also be unique if it’s to be effective.
If you find yourself unable to reduce your consumption, or you’ve built up a tolerance to drugs or alcohol meaning you need to consume even more to feel the effects, then we strongly advise joining a treatment centre like our rehab in Harrow. Our aim is to provide you with the necessary tools to help you completely overcome your drug and alcohol abuse and lead a healthy, sober life.
How do our addiction treatments work?
At our rehab in Harrow, we provide personalised treatment programmes for all of our clients. With a combination of traditional psychological therapies and well-being therapies, you’ll be receiving the most effective addiction treatment available. Our dedicated team are highly skilled and very experienced in helping clients with many different forms of addiction. We help you to identify what underlying issues you have which may have led you to drug and alcohol abuse. This is a very complex condition which requires professional support to address your psychological connection with addiction, not just your physical connection. In most cases, our clients have suffered from trauma either in their childhood or as an adult or are attempting to deal with grief; using drugs or alcohol is a distraction or coping mechanism.
Our range of therapies will help you to overcome this trauma or grief and learn to move past it without the desire for drug or alcohol abuse.
What’s our private residential rehab like?
We take pride in the positive, welcoming environment which we’ve created at our rehabilitation centre. All of our clients are treated with the utmost respect, care, and attention throughout the duration of their addiction treatment. In addition to our industry-leading, evidence-based treatments, we believe it’s our high-quality facilities and the comfortable environment we’ve designed which makes us stand out. You’ll benefit from your own private room with en-suite, communal lounges, and plenty of relaxing outdoor spaces. Our fantastic team take care of your everyday needs from housekeeping, laundry, healthy meals, and even arrange social activities for you to enjoy in your downtime. You can take part in group runs or walks, quiz nights, film nights, or family visits if you wish to see them.
We understand the importance of feeling comfortable in your surroundings when going through such a life-changing experience. Our team have helped countless people overcome their battle against drug and alcohol abuse, now we’re here to help you.
What is clinical detoxification?
Although we personalise all of our addiction treatments, it’s likely we’ll suggest that you begin your stay with a visit to our detox clinic. This is an important process which helps to flush out the harmful toxins in your body which are there as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. Detoxification helps to remove your physical connection to the substance, but it can be quite uncomfortable, even dangerous so it’s important to undergo detox with medical supervision; it’s more effective this way. You’re likely to experience withdrawal symptoms as you reduce your intake of drugs or alcohol. It’s crucial that our experienced team are on hand to manage these withdrawal symptoms to avoid further damaging your health.
If you were to undergo a drug or alcohol detox at home without professional support, it’s possible for your body’s nervous system and brain to go into an extreme state of shock which could prove fatal. By completing your detoxification at our detox clinic in Harrow, you’ll also benefit from a more effective and much quicker process than if you were to go through an outpatient service.
Our addiction treatment process is completely streamlined with a high rate of success, we’re confident we can help you achieve a positive outcome from detoxification.
Exceptional aftercare for all of our clients
The time you’re most likely to relapse is in the 12-month period after completing your addiction treatment with us. This is generally because it can be quite difficult to adjust your new behaviours to your familiar way of life.
If possible, we recommend involving your family in your aftercare plan. We can help them to identify the early signs of a potential relapse so they can intervene and support you if needed.
Our team will provide you with relapse prevention tools, local support groups and access to Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous which can all be extremely useful.
This aftercare plan is completely free and helps significantly towards retaining your motivation to recover and continuing your sober lifestyle upon returning home.
Contact our friendly team today on 01908 489 421 and we can get you started on your bespoke addiction treatment programme.
