What happens when I go to Rehab?
The idea of going to rehab might be intimidating, and if it’s a new experience there may be some uncertainty about what will happen, but everything is geared towards helping you beat your addiction, and our friendly admissions team at Asana Lodge will make sure your first steps on the road to recovery are positive.
For most people, the first stage of treatment is detoxification. This is the process of drugs and alcohol leaving the body. Drug or alcohol detox is safest when carried out at a detox clinic at Asana Lodge in North London. This is because a team of professionals can be on hand to manage symptoms of withdrawal and cravings.
Sudden drug or alcohol withdrawal at home can be extremely dangerous and may even prove fatal if the nervous system or brain goes into shock.
Detox programmes at Asana Lodge are in line with the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence & CQC guidelines.
This process is often one of the most uncomfortable parts of the recovery process. How severe withdrawal symptoms depend on the individual, the substance, and the severity of the addiction.
However, it is an essential step on the road to recovery, and with the professional team on hand at Asana Lodge, you’ll be guided step by step.
What Drug and Alcohol Treatment Options are available?
Asana Lodge tailors treatment to the individual, focusing on the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. Through a range of scientifically proven drug and alcohol services and a luxurious rehabilitation centre, we can help you find the treatment that’s right for you.
Asana Lodge provides full rehabilitation and recovery therapy for addictions, and, through mental health treatments, those suffering from mental health issues. All clients receive the highest standards of care and access to a wide range of different treatment options to suit each individual.
Dual diagnosis treatment occurs when an addiction and mental health issue occur in tandem. Drug and alcohol conditions and mental health issues are often linked and treating them together is essential if recovery is to be achieved. At Asana Lodge we can evaluate the degree of a dual diagnosis to find the most suitable treatment options.

Therapy Options at Asana Lodge
For a successful recovery, it’s important to understand your addiction and recognize the most effective ways to avoid using in future. Asana Lodge provides a range of therapy options to help with this.
These range from psychological therapy including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and stress management, wellbeing therapies, social activities, and other therapies.
At Asana Lodge we pride ourselves on our focus on both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction, and you’ll find many options with us that you won’t find elsewhere. For example, in Satori Chair therapy-specific sound frequencies are projected through the body using vibration therapy that can reduce stress, lower anxiety, improve memory, reduce pain, enhance sleep, and manage weight.
Maintaining success after Rehab
Relapse prevention is key to ensuring that the hard work put in at rehab treatment in North London isn’t wasted when a client leaves. Asana Lodge has staff that specializes in relapse prevention to help clients identify their individual triggers and develop strategies to resist them.
There are often warning signs in the lead-up to relapse, these can be:
- Changes in eating habits
- Social isolation
- Sleep disturbances
Ignoring these signs can lead to using substances, which can be dangerous as tolerances are often lost during the rehab process.
A lot of time at Asana Lodge in North London will be spent developing a tailored relapse prevention plan that works, and part of this will be looking at the aftercare options that work for you.
Aftercare is essential for long-term recovery. The first year after leaving rehab is when clients are most at risk of relapsing and Asana Lodge offers free aftercare sessions during this time.
Other support options, such as groups, 12 step programmes, and family therapy or family drug support can also be useful in achieving a substance free future after rehab.
Does Rehab work?
Rehab is an effective way to overcome an addiction, but it’s impossible for it to work if you aren’t fully invested. In order for rehab to be successful you’ll need to exercise willpower and be fully committed to recovery.
How long are Rehab Programmes?
Rehab programmes vary in length, but typically an inpatient stay at a private rehab centre will last 28 days. Outpatient rehab programmes, where the client continues to live at home and attends appointments at a treatment centre, often last for several months. Different programmes work for different people, but our admissions team will be able to help advise what's best for you. Contact Asana Lodge today on 01908489421 or email [email protected]
Can addicts be cured?
Addicts can achieve long-term success in overcoming their addiction. There are countless case studies of people that have overcome addiction, and rehab treatments seek to provide the tools and skills that are necessary to do this.
