What happens during Rehab in Ladywood?
Our drug and alcohol rehab programmes provide holistic addiction treatments that are designed to give you the very best chance of breaking free from your addictions and making a long-term recovery.
The programme will be tailored to suit your own individual needs and circumstances but will usually entail a period of detoxification and a range of therapies aimed at helping you to explore the root causes of your addiction and develop the knowledge and strategies you need to remain clean and sober moving forward.
The exact structure and content of your programme will be drawn up following a thorough assessment of your needs during the admissions process.
Pros and Cons of Inpatient Rehab
Staying as an inpatient at a private drug and alcohol rehab will put you in a safe and calm environment where you can really focus on getting well. You will follow a structured programme and will not be exposed to the stresses, triggers and temptations that you otherwise might be during your day-to-day life. You will also be able to detox in a safe and supervised manner.
With an outpatient rehab or addiction treatment programme such as those typically available on the NHS, you will have to manage your own appointments and drug or alcohol detox. This can be difficult to do when you are already juggling the demands of your addiction and everyday life. You will also be surrounded by the people, places and other triggers associated with your drinking or drug use.
Inpatient or residential rehab is generally the most effective treatment option for serious drug or alcohol addiction, but outpatient treatment does have its own advantages as it is less costly and does not require you to take as much time away from your life and obligations.
Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox
As already mentioned, one of the major plus points of staying in residential rehab is that you will be able to undergo a supervised drug detox. This is important as detoxification is an extremely difficult and potentially dangerous part of the recovery process.
Essentially it involves you processing the toxic elements of drugs and alcohol already in your system, which can produce a wide range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Opioid addiction to substances such as heroin can result in severe physical symptoms, for example, while cannabis and cocaine addiction are linked more to psychological effects.
It can be very difficult to get through this stage without expert help and many people who try to quit on their own repeatedly fail at this stage. A supervised detox will take place under medical supervision, providing you with the support you need and medications that can help with the withdrawal symptoms where this is appropriate.
Addiction Therapy and Treatment Options in Ladywood
Detox is an important step, but relapse prevention is just as crucial and the tools and knowledge you need to maintain your recovery are usually delivered via a range of therapies and treatments. These can help you to explore the root causes of your substance misuse and addiction issues.
This in turn can help you to change the way you think and behave around drugs and alcohol, as well as develop coping strategies and techniques.
Useful therapies could include group therapy, counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as well-being therapies such as art therapy, meditation and nutrition workshops. At Asana Lodge we can also provide some cutting-edge therapies that might not be available elsewhere, such as Satori Chair therapy.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Many people who are struggling with addiction problems will also require treatment for a mental health issue which feeds into their addiction, such as depression or anxiety.
When addiction and mental health conditions exist at the same time they are often intertwined and at rehab, they are often best treated at the same time.
At Asana Lodge we can offer treatment for a wide range of addiction and mental health conditions as part of a dual diagnosis treatment with a co-existing addiction problem.

How do I know if I should attend Rehab?
If you struggle to cope without drugs or alcohol, have tried and failed to quit or cut down or continue to drink and use drugs despite knowing there might be negative consequences, it might be time to seek help. We know that people struggling with addiction are often in denial about the extent of their problem, so we also offer services such as family intervention and family referrals to help get the ball rolling.
How long does Rehab last?
The duration of a rehabilitation programme can vary quite widely. Some rehab centres offer detox-only plans but a more complete programme with various therapies is much more likely to be successful in the long-term. The typical length of stay is generally 28 days, although this can vary depending on your individual requirements and circumstances.
What is an Aftercare Plan?
The recovery process from an alcohol or drug addiction does not end when you leave rehab. In some ways that is only the start of your journey, which is why we offer an aftercare plan to provide support in the difficult first year after your treatment – those first 12 months are generally the most dangerous when it comes to relapsing. With weekly Zoom catch-up sessions you will be able to check in with trusted staff who can provide support as and when you need it.
