Drug and Alcohol Rehab Longton

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a large and ever-growing problem that affects many people in our society. Not only do drugs and alcohol cause physical damage to a person but they severely harm their mental health, destroy relationships, and ruin their livelihood. These personal issues can bleed out to harm the local community and spread until it is a wide-ranging issue.

The problems of addiction continue to persist in this country because many people do not seek help. There is a shame that still surrounds addiction, with many sufferers feeling that they are alone with their struggles and that no help is available to them.

Luckily, places such as Asana Lodge exists to give help to people that need it. Without professional rehab treatment, it is very difficult to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol. It is the best option to take if you wish to live an addiction-free life.


Why Choose Asana Lodge?

Moving away from Longton to go to a private rehab clinic may seem like a huge step but the experience and level of treatment at Asana Lodge outweighs any initial worry or stress.

Our facility consists of 25 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, set on large grounds near the village of Yardley Gobion in rural Northamptonshire. This secluded and peaceful location provides you with a welcome change of scenery. You’ll have a chance to decompress and reset away from the pressures of everyday life and completely focus on recovery. Alongside luxury rooms, we have gym facilities which promote healthy living and are a good way to stay active during your stay with us.

With fewer rooms and people in the facility, we offer a more personal and home-like experience. This way you can get to know and connect with your fellow clients at a deeper level and build a stronger support network.

In this setting, you will take part in a personalised treatment plan and be cared for by a team of medical and care professionals who are dedicated to freeing you of alcohol or drug addiction. We have a wide range of treatment options and therapies and through careful assessment, the best pathway will be decided.

And before you enter our doors our easy admissions process will help alleviate any issues and our team are on hand to help you through every step.


Detoxing in Rehab

When you first enter Asana Lodge, after your initial orientation and settling in period, you will begin a detox programme. Many people who have not experienced detoxing are afraid and this is what stops them from getting help. It can be unpleasant but is essential for an effective recovery.

Essentially, detoxing is when you abstain from drugs or alcohol and end your physical dependence on them. For safe and effective detox, it is vital to do it at a facility as detoxing alone and at home can be very dangerous and even prove fatal due to side effects.

Though withdrawal symptoms can differ whether you are detoxing from drugs or alcohol, there is some overlap. You can expect to experience such as depression, increased anxiety, feeling sick, inability to sleep, sweats and tremors.

To ease these symptoms, medication will be administered by medical professionals. Completing a medically assisted drug and alcohol detox in a calming environment will make the experience as stress-free as it can be and leave you in good stead for engaging in therapies afterwards.


The Therapy Programme at Asana Lodge

Most of your time in rehab will be spent taking part in therapy sessions.

You will participate in individual sessions where you will be one-on-one with an experienced psychologist. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is one of the most common therapies and through these sessions, you will learn to manage your feelings better and get more adept at problem-solving and dealing with triggers.

Alongside one-to-one therapy, you will engage in group-based sessions. These sessions, guided by a care professional, will allow you to talk to fellow clients and together dig deeper into issues and get better. Through these sessions, you will see that you are not alone in your struggle and hopefully you can help others and have people to lean on in tough moments.

In these evidence-based therapies, you can uncover the source of your addiction, improve your self-confidence, and understand how to battle your drug and alcohol addiction.

As a forward-thinking rehab centre, we provide well-being therapies such as yoga sessions, low-level laser therapy, acupuncture, and music therapy. These methods complement other forms of therapy, helping you to be in a better frame of mind during rehab treatment. If you are calmer and physically healthier then you will be more focused on recovery.

The last component of this stage of rehab is engaging in social activities such as film nights, family days and quiz nights. Socialisation is a key to effective recovery as rehab can be intense and you’ll need to relax and have fun. Hopefully with these activities you can build a strong bond with other clients.


Life After Rehab

You may be worried about the time immediately after completing treatment and if there is any more support for you now that you are sober. As most relapses occur within the first year of being in recovery, we at Asana Lodge provide a FREE 12-month aftercare package to help you navigate those initial anxious months.

An aftercare plan will be created for you by our specialised team – considering many factors. With a clearer picture of potential triggers and stumbling blocks, you gain access to a vital resource that can act as a roadmap for your first year sober.

Aftercare itself consists of weekly support meetings where you can meet up with other people in recovery and have a safe space to talk about your journeys and problems you may be having.

Engaging seriously with aftercare is an effective tool for relapse prevention and will give you the best chance of achieving long-term recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Does rehab work for drug addiction?

Yes, of course. The treatment for drug addiction is very similar to that you would undergo if you were addicted to alcohol. Whilst the substance may be different, the methods to help fight addiction do not and with our thorough treatment plan you can beat drug addiction. The detox you undergo may differ from alcohol detox as different chemicals are interacting in your body – but all this will be sorted out by medical professionals.
