Here at Asana Lodge, our drug and alcohol rehab Portishead is home to an excellent team of counsellors, doctors, nurses, mental health support workers, and psychiatrists who deliver the very best evidence-based therapies to people who are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction.
Private residential drug and alcohol rehab have widely been proven to be the most effective way to treat addiction in comparison to free treatment services like the NHS or outpatient services.
This is typically because it’s very challenging to rid yourself of substance abuse in your home environment where you’re surrounded by the distractions and negative influences of daily life.
The difference is, at our residential drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll benefit from staying at our rehab in Portishead where you’ll benefit from a recovery focused setting free from distractions which could potentially lead to relapsing.
We’re extremely proud to have helped countless people overcome their long-standing addictions to alcohol or drugs.
Although it may feel as though it’s not possible, we’re confident that we can help you to live a life free from alcohol or drugs much sooner than you may have thought.
What should you do if you are suffering from a Drug or Alcohol Addiction?
Acknowledging that you need professional rehabilitation support can seem like a scary thing, especially if you’ve been avoiding admitting your addiction to yourself.
There are many individuals, particularly in the UK who are in complete denial when it comes to their addiction to drugs or alcohol, making it even more challenging to open up and ask for help.
After you’ve taken the first step of contacting our admissions team, you will begin your journey to a life free from substance abuse.
The first thing our admissions team will do, is carry out a pre-screening assessment with you to help us gain more of an insight into your addiction and create the most beneficial treatment programme for you.
It’s extremely important that you speak out about the impact your addiction is having on many aspects of your life. If you don’t feel as though you can speak to a friend or family member, then speak to us at our rehab in Portishead; we’re here to help you as much as we can.
When you begin your addiction treatment, which usually commences within 48 hours of contacting our admissions team, a member of our friendly admissions team will welcome you into our positive and relaxed environment.
They’ll make sure that you’re familiarised with our rehab centre and comfortable in your own private room before beginning your addiction treatment.
Why is Detoxification so beneficial?
Drug and alcohol detoxification has such a high success rate but is generally quite an uncomfortable process where withdrawal symptoms are likely to present themselves.
These could include dizziness, nausea, and headaches, as well as more serious symptoms such as hallucinations, seizures, or delirium tremens (the DT’s), some of which may require professional medical assistance.
After you’ve finished your detoxification, our recovery workers will work in partnership with you throughout your psychological and well-being therapies. We deliver evidence-based therapies which all boast a fantastic success rate when it comes to addiction treatment.
All of our client’s treatment programmes are tailored to suit the individual, we’ll decide which therapies will benefit you most based on our prior assessments.
Our therapies include stress management, cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT), psychotherapy, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, dialectical behaviour therapy (also known as DBT), individual, group or family counselling, relaxation and sleep management, mindfulness, fitness therapy, yoga, low level laser therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and nutritional supplement therapy.
Why is Mental Health support so important?
Our years of experience have shown us that mental health and addiction very regularly go hand in hand. This is very common and is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed of.
If you’re suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction and poor mental health, then we call this a dual diagnosis.
We have a very knowledgeable team of experts who can treat both conditions at the same time if suitable. Our dedicated team are expertly trained and highly motivated to help support your recovery from your drug or alcohol addiction and your mental health problems in the most effective way possible.
It may be possible to identify a more prominent condition of the two, but it’s also possible that the two conditions are of equal strength.
A dual diagnosis is quite common as it’s not unusual for someone to develop issues with their mental health as a result of excessive drug taking or drinking.
Vice versa, it’s also common to see someone who is struggling with their poor mental health resort to substance abuse as an attempt to numb their mental pain; it goes without saying that this is not the solution.
What Aftercare Support do we offer?
At our drug and alcohol rehab in Portishead, we have a fantastic team who will continue to support you even after you’ve completed your residential addiction treatment.
They’re on hand 24/7 to help you adapt to your new behaviours and ease the transition process back into home life. The first 12 months after returning home can be the most challenging as this is when you’re most likely to experience a drug or alcohol relapse.
This is why our aftercare support lasts for the whole year and is completely free for all of our clients.
We can organise additional individual, group or family counselling sessions as required, as well as extra relapse prevention sessions.
We’re able to spend some time with your family to help them because familiarised with your rehabilitation tools in case they want to assist with your long-term recovery at home.
