If you’re living with the negative effects caused by drug or alcohol abuse, then our rehab in Plymouth has the solution for you. Don’t let these effects take over your life and cause irreversible damage to your physical and psychological health.
There is a way out of this vicious cycle; this is where we come in.
Our rehab in Plymouth can create a personalised treatment programme for you to follow, which has a proven high success rate in achieving long-term recovery.
We will assess the nature of your condition and help you to understand the underlying issues of your addiction in order to overcome them.
Why is it so important to seek support at a rehabilitation centre?
When you’re living with a drug or alcohol addiction, it be difficult to acknowledge that you need professional support. However, once you do, your life will begin to change for the better.
It’s imperative that you seek guidance from a renowned drug and alcohol treatment centre like ours in Plymouth, otherwise you could be left with a disheartening experience elsewhere.
Some people may be tempted to recover from addiction at home without the support of a specialist team. This usually involves an at-home detox which focuses on removing the harmful toxins from your body by gradually reducing your substance intake.
However, attempting this at home alone can be very dangerous. As your body experiences drug or alcohol withdrawal, you’re likely to be faced with withdrawal symptoms, some of which can be quite serious.
Common withdrawal symptoms include headaches, nausea, or dizziness, but detoxification can also result in seizures, insomnia, or delirium tremens (DT’s) which need to be met with immediate medical attention, thus highlighting the need for this process to take place in a professional detox clinic.
Recovering from drug or alcohol abuse is a challenging feat, by using outpatient services or endeavouring to recover at home alone, you’re only making it more difficult for yourself.
It’s very tough to overcome your addiction if you remain in a familiar environment where you’re likely to be surrounded by negative influences and distractions of home life.
By joining a residential treatment centre like our rehab in Plymouth, you’re distancing yourself from any temptations to relapse, and giving yourself the best opportunity to solely focus on recovering during your stay with us.
What can you expect from our drug and alcohol rehab?
We’re very proud of our personalised treatment service, we believe this sets us apart from the rest as we provide such a tailored and effective programme for all our clients to benefit from individually.
Here at Asana Lodge, we’re also very passionate about keeping our clients safe, secure, and as comfortable as possible throughout this challenging time in their lives.
Not only do our highly qualified team deliver exceptional addiction treatments, we also take care of your laundry, housekeeping, and ensure you have daily nutritious meals to enjoy.
Our rehabilitation centre is luxurious, warm, and welcoming, not clinical, cold, or hospital-like as you may have perceived it to be. We work hard to ensure everyone feels comfortable enough to participate in their treatments and achieve an effective, long-term recovery.
After your initial assessment, we can begin to discuss any underlying mental health conditions which could be contributing to your addiction.
Although everyone’s addiction treatment will be unique, it’s likely that you’ll begin with a visit to our detox clinic which will help remove your physical dependency to alcohol or drugs.
You will then begin your psychological and well-being therapies which target your mental connection to drug or alcohol abuse.
Do we deliver cognitive behavioural therapy?
Our treatment programmes are entirely evidence-based and utilise a variety of successful techniques to help tackle the root of your addiction. A popular treatment which we encourage our clients to undergo is cognitive behavioural therapy, also known as CBT.
This therapy is highly effective as you’re shown how to change your negative patterns to help how you feel towards certain things. It searches for practical ways to improve your state of mind, dealing with current issues rather than focusing on the past.
Your therapist will help you break down your problems into more manageable pieces, so you can then analyse these to determine the effect they have on your psychological health.
Once you understand each element, you can begin to change these disruptive thoughts and behaviours into positive ones. This form of therapy is a fantastic tool to take away with you and practise in daily life once you have completed your stay with us.
In addition to cognitive behavioural therapy, we also embrace a range of other therapies such as family and individual speech therapy, group counselling, 12-step work, relapse prevention, stress management, and psychotherapy. It’s important to balance these psychological treatments with therapies which focus on your well-being.
These include relaxation and sleep management, Acupuncture and Acu-Detox, mindfulness, art therapy, and fitness therapy.
All of these therapies will have different effects on different people which is why it’s so important to design an accurate and varied treatment programme which is personalised to suit your needs.
