Overcoming denial and admitting to your addiction is often the hardest step to take on the long road to recovery.
Addiction is often shrouded in shame and embarrassment, making it particular difficult for someone to reach out for help.
Addiction is intertwined with mental illness, meaning that it has a devastating effect on lives. Here at Asana Lodge, we understand that taking that first step is extremely difficult, which is why we provide a free and confidential initial consultation.
We’ll discuss with you your addiction, current lifestyle and medical history to advise you on the best possible treatment options available to you.
Since recovery is a personal journey, we ensure that all treatment programmes are based on a dual-diagnosis assessment, which will asses both your physical and psychological wellbeing.
At Asana Lodge you can recover in comfort, knowing that you have the best care and support to help you achieve your long-term recovery goals. So take back control of your life and contact our friendly and supportive team today.
How do you know you are an addict?
Since addiction is shrouded in denial it can be extremely difficult to admit to an addiction, or spot when a loved one is struggling with substance abuse. However, there are signs you can look out for that can signal an addiction, these include:
- New circle of friends
- Increased secrecy
- Problems sleeping
- Personality changes
- Bloodshot eyes
- Blotchy skin
- Memory loss
- Increased anxiety and depression
Anyone can become an addict and once an addiction is formed it holds a powerful influence on your mind, meaning you lose control over your consumption despite the harm it causes you.
Since addiction is intertwined with mental health issues, it’s imperative that you seek professional help to treat and recover from your addiction.
All of our treatment programmes at Asana Lodge are dual-diagnosis, meaning they treat both the physical and psychological impacts of addiction.
Why choose Asana Lodge?
Giving yourself distance from your daily life whilst trying to recover can be the most effective form of treatment. Instead of being surrounded by the negative influences that drive your addiction, you can recover in the luxurious and homely comforts at Asana Lodge.
We provide leading, scientific treatments in amongst a comforting and supportive environment. You’ll have your own accommodation onsite for the duration of your stay and an onsite chef will set out a meal plan for you, providing all the meals you require throughout your stay.
You may think that residential rehab is similar to prison, or clinical in its feel. However, this could not be more wrong when it comes to Asana Lodge.
We provide professional round the clock care and encourage our patients to leave the centre for day trips and group activities. We create a sense of community at the centre through organised group events, such as quiz nights.
Private drug and alcohol rehab does come with a price, however the benefits of seeking private care is that you don’t have to wait on any NHS waiting lists and you’re more in control of your recovery, by being able to access help a lot quicker.
Addiction Treatment Options
Every treatment programme at Asana Lodge starts with drug or alcohol detoxification. You cannot start your therapy until your mind if clear from the substance. Detox usually lasts just a couple of days, after which time you’ll start your theory programme.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the most common type of therapy used to treat addiction, since it works through psychoeducation to retrain your mind.
Assessing your negative thought processes and habits, CBT can guide you to change your thought processes and retrain yourself to form new habits, which in turn will allow you to react differently to situations that would have previously triggered your addiction.
With this knowledge and these strategies in place to help you understand your addiction you can work towards achieving long-term recovery.
Alongside these more traditional therapy options, you’ll also have access to our leading, scientifically proven treatments such as Satori Chair Therapy.
This treatment uses vibrations, from sound frequencies, to help calm your mind and body and create an almost meditative state. This therapy can be accessed after other therapy sessions, or when you feel your recovery becomes more challenging.
We encourage peer activities throughout your treatment programme, which is why we also provide many group therapy options, such as group sessions, art therapy, motivation sessions, and fitness classes.
Peer support can often be the most effective form of treatment when you face your most challenging moments.
Life after Rehab
Finishing your addiction treatment programme at drug and alcohol rehab in Hedge End and returning home may seem like a daunting prospect. We understand that the first twelve months after rehab are also the most challenging, which is why we provide 12 months of free aftercare.
We’ll help you settle back into your daily life and link you with your local support groups. These groups are one of the most effective forms of support you can have when working on sustainable long-term recovery.
You’ll meet other people you’ll share similar experiences to you and who will understand how you feel and what you’re going through. This type of support is invaluable.
We can also help with rebuilding relationships, that are often difficult to pick back up again after rehab. Or if you simply need some guidance and advice, we can be a friendly ear to talk to and provide our support where needed.
The most important change to make, is to fill the time you suddenly gain with positive and healthy lifestyle choices, such as joining a club, starting a hobby, or getting a job.
