While relapse may come across as a negative, as a failure of addiction recovery, it is in fact the opposite. If you’ve progressed through a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme, reaching the other side as a recovering addict, you’ve achieved your initial goal of becoming clean. However, long-term maintenance of…Read More
Middlesbrough, unfortunately, has a problem with drug and alcohol addictions. The North East of England has a higher proportion of people needing addiction treatment. This is why here at Asana Lodge, we can help you by providing access to our rehab or by explaining how to complete an addiction recovery in the local area.
We can provide transport to our rehab straight from your home in Middlesbrough for fast-track treatment for your drug or alcohol addiction.
We take great pride in ensuring all of our clients are as comfortable as possible throughout the duration of their stay with us.
Not only do we provide exceptional addiction treatments with a personalised approach, we take care of your housekeeping, laundry and deliver delicious homemade meals; all that’s left for you to do is concentrate on achieving your long-term recovery.
What are the Options for Drug or Alcohol Addiction in Middlesbrough?
If you need addiction treatment in Middlesbrough, you have a few options. You can either attempt recovery at home as an outpatient or complete addiction recovery in residential rehab.
Both of these settings have their pros and cons. It is understood that residential rehab programmes offer the best chances of a long-term recovery, but not everybody can access these resources in Middlesbrough due to funding issues.
Outpatient Treatment in Middlesbrough
If you wish to know what treatment options are available in your local area, you should start by contacting your GP in Middlesbrough.
On your arrival, you will need to discuss your situation with your GP, explain your addiction, and they will be able to discuss what outpatient services are available in the local area.
Outpatient treatment can sometimes be a slow process; you may be referred to a local community centre or prescribed a drug substitute such as methadone if you are suffering from heroin addiction.
If you do not wish to visit your GP other services such as narcotics anonymous and alcoholics anonymous operate in the local area, and you can also visit one of the group therapy sessions to ask for advice.
The Pros of Outpatient Treatment in Middlesbrough
As an outpatient, you can still go to work, see your friends and family on a daily basis and stay at home to look after your children.
Outpatient treatment is generally free and delivered through your local community GP and charitable foundations based in the city.
You can recover in your own time and to your own schedule; unfortunately, as we have seen, waiting for drug addiction to just get better over a prolonged time is not the best approach to beating it.
Cons of Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Middlesbrough
If you have a severe addiction, outpatient treatment can be challenging as you recover at home as opposed to in a clinical environment.
Your addiction treatment options may be limited to what is available locally, and the treatment plan not be personalised to your specific need.
In addition, you will be surrounded by all the daily temptations you are accustomed to. When you visit the shops, you will have easy access to alcohol, and drugs are easily attainable through your network of friends.
One of the biggest drawbacks is when you attempt to detox. Withdrawal symptoms can be pretty severe, and having to go through this period without the support of medical professionals can be very difficult and, in some cases, dangerous.
Inpatient Treatment in Middlesbrough
If you want to stay in a private rehab, you need to move out of your home for a period of time and be treated as a residential inpatient.
This may involve moving out of the area completely for a period of time whilst you complete a personalised rehab programme.
Here you will be well catered for, you will go through a medically assisted detox, and a personalised plan will treat not only your addiction but also any mental health issues that may contribute to your addiction.
Pros of Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab
Residential treatment does give you the best chance of making a full recovery from addiction.
You will be taken out of your environment, and your drug or alcohol use completely shut off.
These rehab centres are designed with only one thing in mind, to get you better and your life back on track free from addiction.
A personalised treatment plan will be developed after you have gone through the admissions process and you can begin the healing process straight away.
With a wide range of treatment services available, you will be under 24-hour care in our rehab treatment centre.
Cons of Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab
Staying in a dedicated rehab comes with a price of upwards of £4000 for a one-week stay, and unfortunately, due to spending restrictions, not everybody can access private rehab via the NHS.
Some people also struggle with the routine; in rehab, you will have set meal times and be expected to attend daily addiction therapy sessions, so it can feel quite intense.
If you are not fully committed to putting a stop to your drug and alcohol use, a rehab centre will only have limited effectiveness for anybody.
You may also need to move out of the area for a time, so this will mean you will not have family members around you constantly. You are allowed visits, but as you will be away, you may miss some family members for a period of time while you concentrate on getting yourself better.
You may also not be able to find a rehab in Middlesbrough ideally suited to your own complex condition and may need to move a rehab centre further away. Although a change a scenery and a period away from the area can also be a good thing.
What Addictions do you Treat?
We treat every type of drug addiction at our drug and alcohol rehab. The most common addictions we treat are:
- Alcohol Addiction
- Cocaine Addiction
- Heroin Addiction
- Cannabis Addiction
- Prescription Drug Addiction
- Crystal Meth Addiction
- Benzo Addiction
- Spice Addiction

Substance misuse can often be complex; you may be suffering from a cocaine and cannabis addiction, in addition to a mental health problem.
We are used to treating all these conditions and can successfully manage your withdrawal symptoms from each substance through various prescribed medicines and therapies.
How do you know when you should Join a Rehabilitation Centre?
It’s very common for people who are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse to experience feelings of denial. It’s natural to convince yourself that you don’t need any help and the condition will simply ‘sort itself out’. We can assure you that drug and alcohol abuse won’t just go away on its own.
It’s a complex condition which requires more than medication and goodwill to be completely forgotten about, of course, these are important aspects, but the most crucial factor is that your psychological connection to substance abuse is altered.
There are some familiar signs and symptoms to look out for, which are common in a drug or alcohol abuser. You may be experiencing fluctuating temperatures, sweats, shakes, dizziness, nausea, redness of the face, skin sores, or feelings of depression and anxiety.
If you do experience any of these symptoms in addition to feeling as though you’re unable to stop consuming drugs or alcohol, then it’s vital you seek help at our rehabilitation centre.
If you’ve ever attempted to recover at home through a drug or alcohol detox and ultimately failed, you’ll know just how disheartening a failed attempt can be.
You must push through this and try again but give yourself the best chance of succeeding by joining our rehab in Middlesborough.
You’ll benefit from constant supervision and compassionate advice from our expert medical team as you take on this difficult yet highly rewarding challenge.
What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
If you’re struggling with drug and alcohol abuse as well as a mental health condition, this is often known as a dual diagnosis for which a unique treatment can be offered. This dual diagnosis treatment addresses both conditions on their own before tackling them together.
It works by helping you to identify the underlying reasons for your conditions. It’s possible that you began abusing alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism to deal with your mental health condition, or alternatively, you developed a mental health issue as a result of excessive drug and alcohol abuse.
Either way, our team is experienced in delivering dual diagnosis treatment, so please don’t be concerned about seeking help. Having two conditions at the same time is actually more common than you may think, as around half of people who struggle with their mental health are also prone to substance abuse.
We hope to see more awareness raised for dual diagnosis to avoid feelings of confusion or isolation for those suffering from it; it’s important to know there is an effective treatment that can help you recover.
What kind of Drug and Alcohol Treatment do we Offer?
Our years of experience has shown us that the most effective way to treat drug and alcohol abuse is to provide a bespoke addiction treatment programme for every client. By doing this, each individual receives a high level of personalisation, care, and attention from our addiction specialists.
After you have made your initial enquiry with us, we can conduct a physical and psychological health assessment via phone or online. This assessment is there to help us understand you and your drug and alcohol abuse on a deeper level.
It’s important that we go through this process as it enables us to personalise your addiction treatment to a programme which benefits you most, resulting in effective and efficient recovery.
You’ll likely begin your stay with us by visiting our detox clinic to lessen your physical dependency to alcohol or drugs. Detoxification is a fairly straightforward process; we gradually reduce your drug or alcohol intake until you no longer feel dependent or addicted to the substance. It can be quite uncomfortable, even dangerous if not managed correctly.
This is why it’s so important to be surrounded by a professional recovery team whilst undergoing a drug or alcohol detox. Our team can administer prescribed medication to ease your withdrawal symptoms if needed and will ensure your safety throughout.
Once you’ve completed your drug or alcohol detox, you will move on to your subsequent psychological and well-being therapies.
These will vary depending on what’s been recommended for your specific condition but could include cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, relapse prevention, or individual, group or family counselling, which can also be utilised through our friend and family referral service.
We also deliver therapies which focus more on your well-being to ensure you receive a holistic approach to your drug and alcohol treatment.
These include art therapy, fitness therapy, relaxation and sleep management, acupuncture and acu-detox, low-level laser therapy, mindfulness, yoga, and Indian head massage.
Aftercare and Relapse Prevention
You’re most likely to relapse in the first 12 months after leaving our rehabilitation centre.
This is mostly because you’ve returned back home to an environment which you associate with drug and alcohol abuse, and you’re without the constant supervision of a medical team.
To avoid any relapses, we offer a free 12-month aftercare programme for all of our clients which involves weekly Zoom sessions with members of our team.
We can also be easily contacted through dedicated helplines.
Contact our team today on 01908 489 421 and start your journey to recovery.
