Drug and Alcohol Rehab Newquay

Drug and alcohol misuse is a growing issue everywhere, but coastal towns are often some of the worst-hit areas. Newquay certainly has an issue with both alcohol and illegal drugs.  

Some of these issues in seaside resorts involve transient visitors and tourists but the fact remains that many people in the area are struggling with substance misuse issues of various kinds. 


Getting Help for Addiction in Newquay 

Alcohol is a complex condition and treating it can be an equally complex process. The US National Institute on Drug Abuse says that addiction is “a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking, continued use despite harmful consequences, and long-lasting changes in the brain”. [1] 

This helps to explain why drug and alcohol addiction is so difficult to overcome without expert help. The fact that it causes changes to the brain and is marked by compulsion even when there are negative consequences means that addiction is extremely difficult to tackle with willpower alone.  

Physical and psychological dependency can also lead to a wide range of withdrawal symptoms when the substance is suddenly removed, and this can be dangerous if not done in a measured and supervised manner. 

The good news is addiction can be successfully treated and we now have plenty of evidence and experience concerning the treatments and techniques that actually work.

Is Private Rehabilitation the Right Choice? 

There are often differences between individual rehabs and treatment programmes, but the main choice you will have to make is whether to seek treatment on an outpatient programme or at a residential rehabilitation centre 

Outpatient programmes are typically available through the NHS, and they do have some benefits. An obvious one is cost and another is that you don’t have to take time out from your life and responsibilities.  

There are also some pretty major drawbacks though. Sadly, the NHS is often stretched for resources in the area of addiction treatment.  

With an outpatient programme you will also have to manage and attend your own appointments, which might be at different clinics and venues. This can be difficult to do when in the grip of an addiction, especially if you are living a chaotic lifestyle.  

You will be surrounded by the usual triggers and temptations associated with your drinking or drug use, as well as the stresses of your everyday life. You might have to undergo detoxification with minimal supervision and the overall treatment time will usually be a lot longer as the treatment sessions are more spread out. 

With residential rehab, you will be in a safe and secure environment that seems a world away from those triggers and you certainly won’t have any access to drugs or alcohol.  

You will be able to really focus on your recovery with round-the-clock support from experienced and empathic teams of professional recovery workers.  

The detoxification process will be supervised, making it safer and easier to get through and you will take part in a range of evidence-based therapies and other treatments. All this gives you the best possible chance of breaking the cycle of addiction and making a lasting recovery. 


What Treatments are Available? 

Different treatment programmes can vary but will typically involve a medically supervised detox, where you can be helped through the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that usually accompany this vital phase of recovery.  

You will also undergo a range of therapies aimed at helping you to explore the root causes of your addiction and providing you with the tools you need to stay clean and sober moving forward.  

These could include proven techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychotherapy and group therapy, as well as ‘complementary’ therapies such as art therapy for your overall wellbeing. 


Will Rehab Stop Me From Relapsing? 

While in rehab you will take part in relapse prevention sessions. These will provide you with tactics and coping strategies designed to help you when cravings and temptations do arise – as they almost inevitably will.  

Along with the other treatment and therapy sessions you undergo, you should develop the knowledge and tools you need to avoid relapse when you leave, but there is no magic ‘cure’ and relapse is likely to remain a danger.  

This is why we also offer a year of vital aftercare, to provide important support in the weeks and months following your stay in rehab.  

While it is obviously best to avoid any episodes of relapse, it’s important not to think that you’re back to square one if you do fall off the wagon. Relapse is certainly a setback, but it doesn’t have to be the end of your recovery, especially with the right support in place. 


What Happens During the Admissions Process? 

We never forget that every individual struggling with addiction and substance misuse issues is an individual with their own unique situation and requirements.  

While there may be common elements between one treatment programme and the next, they are also tailored to fit your own individual requirements. 

Our experienced admissions specialists will first of all provide you with information and talk you through everything you need to know to make sure rehab is the right choice for you and that our facilities are a good fit.  

If you move forward, there will be an assessment with simple questions about the nature of your addiction, mental health issues, social and living situation, employment situation etc.  

We will then talk about your treatment options and discuss a possible admission date if you decide to go ahead. There will also be a medical examination on arrival. 

If you feel that rehab could be your best way forward, contact us today and take the first steps towards a more positive future. You can call us on 01908489421 to start your recovery today.

Frequently Asked Questions

How beneficial is residential rehab?

The concentrated nature of residential rehab quickly gets you clean and sets you on the right path. Through residential rehab you will live and breathe the recovery lifestyle, learning ways to help you cope afterwards and introducing you to a support network that could last for years. With residential rehab, you can see you are not alone on your journey.

Is it safe to detox at home?

Going through detox without any support is a path that some people take. If you can afford to undergo medical detoxification then that is the way to go. The effects of withdrawal on a person are impossible to predict and there can be complications. Symptoms such as seizures and delirium tremens caused by withdrawal can sometimes result in death.

How long does rehab last?

A typical programme with us at Asana Lodge usually takes around 28 days – that programme includes drug or alcohol detox. After this period, you will be physically sober and hopefully feel ready to return to your normal life.
