Drug and alcohol abuse are serious conditions which require professional support to fully overcome. There’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed of when it comes to asking for help, it’s actually a very brave thing to do. If you’re suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs then you’ll likely understand the devastating effects it has on your life.
Not only will drug and alcohol abuse significantly debilitate your physical and psychological health, it’s also likely to cause disruption to your career as your performance becomes weaker. Your relationships with family and friends are likely to be damaged as you put your addiction first and lose sight of what’s important to you.
Don’t let drug and alcohol abuse take over your life. Invest in yourself and make the best decision to join a renowned treatment centre like our rehab in Northumberland. Our experienced team can help you overcome your addiction once and for all. All you need to do is call us on 01908 489 421, we can guide you from there.
What addiction treatments do we offer?
Studies have shown that the most effective way to overcome drug and alcohol abuse is to follow a personalised treatment programme which is structured to suit your unique needs; this is exactly what we do. Initially, we will carry out an assessment with you to review your physical and psychological health as well as your medical history. This will enable our team to create the most effective treatment programme for you. In addition to following a personalised drug and alcohol treatment programme, it’s also highly valuable to include a mix of psychological and well-being therapies. These therapies target different areas giving you an all-round experience across various approaches, allowing you to achieve an effective and efficient long-term recovery. To this end, we deliver the following psychological therapies, stress management, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, drug, or alcohol detox, individual, group or family counselling, and relapse prevention.
Our well-being therapies on offer include relaxation and sleep therapy, mindfulness, yoga, low-level laser therapy, Acupuncture or Acu-Detox, art therapy, and fitness therapy. Your unique addiction treatment will include a variety of the above evidence-based therapies. Only by addressing your physical and psychological connections to drug and alcohol abuse, will you be able to fully achieve long-term recovery.
What can you do if you’re concerned about a loved one?
If you’re worried that someone close to you could be suffering from drug and alcohol abuse then it’s important to know what you can do to help them. It’s quite common for people with an addiction to deny that they have a problem. However, you’ll likely begin to notice their physical health deteriorating, followed by their mental health taking a beating. Don’t watch their quality of life diminish, no matter how fine they tell you they are; seek help and they will thank you in the long-term. At our rehab in Northumberland, we have a family and friend referral service. All you have to do is call our admissions team and give us some details on the loved one you’re concerned about. This will help our team to understand the severity of their addiction and what side effects they’re experiencing as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. We can then advise the next steps, talking you through the various treatment options we believe will benefit your loved one.
We appreciate that it can be difficult to take that first step and contact us regarding your concerns; please be assured that we have helped countless families complete the same process. It’ll be extremely rewarding to know that you contributed towards their happiness through using our family and friend referral service.
How do we help you with relapse prevention?
Here at Asana Lodge, our team are made up of experienced professionals who specialise in addiction treatment. Within our team, we have a number of experts who particularly focus on relapse prevention. This helps you to identify your triggers and presents you with the tools needed to avoid any temptation to relapse. As difficult as it may first sound, it’s entirely possible to achieve a successful long-term recovery, with no relapses. With the right coping strategies and expert help from our relapse prevention team, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your recovery goals.
Part of our relapse prevention sessions includes showing you common signs to look out for which normally appear before a relapse. In most cases, you will experience an emotional relapse in the build-up to a drug or alcohol relapse. You could be suffering from exhaustion, sleep disturbances including insomnia or excessive sleep, a change in eating habits whether it’s too much or not enough or feel socially isolated. All of these signs could be leading you to a potential relapse, it’s important to recognise these early on and know how to cope with them. Together, we will design a relapse prevention plan to help you when you’ve left our rehabilitation centre. We know that aftercare plays a big part in preventing a drug or alcohol relapse.
The first 12 months after completing your addiction treatment and returning home, are the most crucial in maintaining your motivation to recover, it’s when you’re most likely to relapse. As these first 12 months are so important to your recovery, we offer all of our client’s free aftercare throughout this period. Our support groups are a fantastic environment to share your thoughts and feelings with others in similar situations, these sessions also help you to identify any problematic behaviours which need addressing.
It’s also important to include your family in the aftercare process. If we can show them the signs of relapse, they’ll know what to look out for and be better equipped to help you should you need it.
