How can our Rehab in Salford help you?
The wide choice of rehabilitation centres can be quite overwhelming when you’re searching for suitable addiction treatment. You can request drug and alcohol treatment from free local health services such as the NHS, however, these free or low-cost treatment programmes tend to be ineffective due to their lack of personalisation.
Health services like the NHS are so overstretched and underfunded that they’re unable to take the time needed to design a tailored addiction treatment programme.
Studies have shown that following a personalised treatment programme produces the best success rates for long-term recovery.
This is why be strongly encourage those who are suffering from alcohol or drug addiction to join a private rehabilitation centre like ours in Salford. You can follow a structured, personalised treatment programme with high success rates, as opposed to seeing little results from a generic treatment and becoming disheartened with the whole process.
Our team are highly experienced in dealing with many forms of drug and alcohol abuse. We don’t judge anyone’s personal circumstances; we welcome you into our centre with welcome arms ensuring you feel as comfortable as possible throughout your addiction treatment with us.
What are the causes of drug or alcohol abuse?
Each person’s journey into addiction is completely unique to them, which is why it’s so important that we provide a unique treatment programme to follow. It’s a very complex condition which can’t be simply explained with one single cause or reason.
There is usually an underlying issue that could have led to addiction such as childhood or adult trauma, grief, or poor mental health. In our experience, it’s very common to see people who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse to also struggle with their mental health.
We’re confident in delivering dual-diagnosis treatment which focuses on improving both your mental health and eliminating your addiction to drugs or alcohol. In some cases, poor mental health can be a result of prolonged substance abuse.
However, on the other hand, you may have started abusing drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with your mental health issues. Either way, our dedicated team can assess your physical and psychological well-being before determining the best course of action for your treatment.
How do you know if you need Drug and Alcohol Treatment?
Perhaps you feel as though you don’t really have a problem? It’s quite common for people to deny their addiction as a way to cope with their issues. However, if left untreated, the effects of drug and alcohol abuse will only get worse, potentially causing irreversible damage.
No matter how mild you might think your problem is, if it’s having an effect on your physical and psychological health then you must seek urgent support. When it comes to drug or alcohol addiction, there are some common signs to look out for.
If you or a loved one is showing any of these symptoms, then it’s very likely you require professional addiction treatment. These symptoms include the shakes, feeling sick, sweats, skin sores, dizziness, depression, anxiety, fluctuating temperatures, or difficulty sleeping.
If you’re frequently abusing drugs or alcohol, then you’re consistently causing damage to your internal organs as well as your mental health.
You’re putting yourself at risk of heart and liver disease, diabetes, stroke, suicide, and severe depression and anxiety. If you act now, you can give yourself a chance to lead a happier, healthier life free from addiction.
Do we offer Art Therapy?
This may sound unusual to some, but our experience has shown us that a carefully selected combination of psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and well-being therapies such as art therapy, produce the most successful results.
This is because drug and alcohol abuse will not only affect you physically but mentally as well, so this must be addressed accordingly. Art therapy comes in many different forms, essentially this non-traditional therapy aims to help you express your emotions and experiences in a tangible form which can be extremely helpful to those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction.
Through promoting creativity, expression and acknowledgement, art therapy helps to ease your recovery journey. It’s a useful alternative for those who don’t feel comfortable verbally expressing themselves but can still benefit from sharing their concerns and experiences linked to their addiction.
This form of therapy is also very effective for those struggling with mental health issues as the art provides a relaxing distraction and creates a calming atmosphere.
