Finding the right Rehabilitation Centre for you

If you’ve been searching for a place to undergo your drug and alcohol rehab treatments, you’re likely aware of the vast range of options that are available to you. One of the options is to seek outpatient treatment which is where you would visit a local centre during the day and return home each night.

Whilst this may sound appealing for some people, returning to your comfort zone of home during treatment can actually be detrimental to your recovery. To make a real difference in giving up alcohol or drugs for good, it’s important that you take yourself out of your comfort zone and put all of your focus into your rehabilitation.

This is very hard to do when you’re surrounded by the normal stresses of home life such as work, family, etc. Therefore, by choosing this option, you wouldn’t be giving yourself the greatest opportunity to succeed.

Another treatment option for drug and alcohol addiction is through free local health services such as the NHS. Again, this will be outpatient treatment, so you’ll be returning home each night which isn’t optimal for your recovery.

Another issue with NHS treatments is that the programme you follow will be a generic one. Due to lack of resources and funding, the NHS simply don’t have the capabilities to personalise addiction treatment programmes for everyone who needs it. You’ll likely be added to a long waiting list to receive your treatment, which again, can be detrimental to your overall recovery.

Finally, you can seek support through a private residential rehab like ours in St Albans. There are no waiting lists, all treatment programmes are personalised and delivered by expert recovery workers, and you’ll stay in luxurious accommodation with no distractions.

We may sound bias, but private drug and alcohol rehabs within a residential setting have long been proven to produce the highest level of success for long-term recoveries.

 

How do you start your Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatments?

We appreciate that the first step can sometimes be the hardest. Admitting to yourself and to those around you that you need professional support can be very daunting. Once you’ve made the decision to acknowledge your addiction and seek help, we’ll be here for you every step of the way.

It all starts with a simple phone call or email where our friendly admissions team will listen to you and answer any questions you might have about our residential rehab. If you’re comfortable to move on, we can arrange for a pre-screening assessment to take place which gives us the opportunity to review your physical and psychological health. This also allows us to understand the nature of your condition a little more and helps us to design the most effective treatment programme for your needs.

One of our recovery workers will take you through your induction into our drug and alcohol rehab St Albans and ensure you’re settled in. The next step is usually to undergo a detoxification which is fully supervised by our team 24/7 and is conducted in the most safe and secure environment.

Whilst a detox can be quite uncomfortable, especially when withdrawal symptoms present themselves, we do highly recommend it as it’s proven to be the most effective way to remove the toxins from your body and gradually break your physical connection to drugs or alcohol.

 

What Aftercare do we provide?

Once you’ve returned home after completing your residential rehab with us, which normally lasts around 28 days, we will continue our support through a personalised aftercare programme. Your aftercare is just as important as your time spent at our drug and alcohol St Albans.

Returning home with all of this new knowledge and new tools to put in practise can be quite overwhelming. The first 12 months have proven to be the most difficult for the majority of people as they try to adjust to your new behaviours whilst transitioning back into the daily stresses of normal life.

Focusing on everything you’ve learnt from your relapse prevention sessions is crucial at this point. The urge to consume alcohol or drugs may present itself, leaving you at risk of relapsing.

However, you now have the comprehensive knowledge and experience from our drug and alcohol rehab treatments, in addition to our ongoing aftercare support. An aspect of relapse prevention is working with our team to identify what may have caused your addiction to alcohol or drugs.

This is very useful when it comes to being able to recognise your triggers and work through a psychological or emotional relapse effectively before it becomes a physical consumption of the substance.

Our aftercare programme is complimentary for 12 months to ensure you’re fully supported. We have dedicated helplines, we can arrange ongoing therapy sessions if needed, and can recommend local support networks for you to take advantage of such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

There’s no time to waste when it comes to taking care of yourself and those around you.
