Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment in Sunbury on Thames

Nestled in Surrey, Sunbury-on-Thames is a suburban town on the bank of the Thames. However, like every other town in the UK, some individuals struggle with addiction. With direct links to London and wider areas of the UK, however, there are plenty of drug and alcohol addiction treatment centres close by.

In the UK, you have a choice between inpatient and outpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment requires individuals to stay on-site at the rehab centre for the duration of their treatment, usually 28 days. Outpatients receive treatment at a clinic during the day and return home in the evening.

There isn’t a right or wrong choice, and the decision has to be right for you. It’s also important to note that the NHS rarely provides inpatient treatment because of ongoing funding issues. Some experts also believe that an inpatient, often called private rehab, offers the best chance of long-term recovery. This is because individuals are away from familiar surroundings and temptations and can instead focus fully on their recovery.

Some of the other benefits of private drug and alcohol rehab include:

  • 24/7 guidance and support
  • Private accommodation and your own room
  • All meals are taken care of
  • A medically-assisted detox
  • Extracurricular activities

The aim is always the same whether you choose inpatient or outpatient treatment. A combination of therapy in group and individual settings, detox and well-being and holistic activities is designed to help you combat physical addiction and treat any psychological symptoms.


What Happens During a Detox?

As mentioned above, one of the best reasons for choosing inpatient treatment is that you’ll be guided and supported through the detox process. A detox is when the drugs or alcohol leave your body and must be completed before any treatment begins.

Many people try to complete this at home, but cravings and withdrawal symptoms make it challenging. Ultimately, this is because, over time, your body and mind will have built up dependence and tolerance of the substance and are struggling to cope without it.

While they vary from person to person, typical withdrawal symptoms include cold and flu-like symptoms, nausea, sickness and shaking. These side effects are completely normal but can become dangerous in some instances.

It’s also important that the substance is stopped slowly and the individual is weaned off it. With a medical team by your side, you’ll be guided throughout and prescribed any medication to help ease the effects.

The full detox process can last up to one week, but after that, you’ll be ready to start treatment. Many experts believe that completing a detox in rehab offers the best chance of success, which is essential for long-term recovery.


Is Help Available After Rehab?

Lots of people are worried about their rehab journey coming to an end. For this reason, a huge part of your rehab journey will focus on aftercare and relapse prevention advice. Not only will you be given all the tools and skills you need to remain resilient, but aftercare meetings will ensure that you stay on track.

Our support doesn’t come to an end the moment you leave rehab. Your journey is only beginning, so we’ll ensure you have details of local community groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Plus, our telephone line is always open, and our team is only a message away – whether you have any questions, are concerned or just want someone to listen.

We also advise individuals to be honest with their friends and family. That way, they can know how to support you through your recovery, and you can complete the journey together.

Perhaps you don’t want to go to certain places or prefer it if things at home change. Either way, allowing your friends and family into your recovery and being honest about what you need and want can make recovery seem much easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is outpatient rehab?

To join outpatient rehab means that you’ll remain staying at home whilst visiting our drug and alcohol rehab each day to receive your addiction treatment. This is the main difference between outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab, as with inpatient rehab, you stay overnight at our rehabilitation centre until you’ve completed your programme. Both treatment options have their own advantages and disadvantages, whichever works best for you will be dependent on your own circumstances and the nature of your addiction.

How do I prepare for rehab?

To ensure that you are prepared to enter our drug and alcohol rehab, there are several things that you can do. Firstly, we recommend asking us any questions that you may have surrounding treatment, your time in our rehab and our facilities. In doing so, you will have all of the information you need, and you will find that you feel more at ease when the time comes for you to commence treatment. We also recommend informing your loved ones and others, such as your employer, that you will be attending rehab. Although you may want to keep your addiction and recovery a secret, upon attending our rehab, you will be required to remain within our centre for at least 28-days as you complete treatment. During this time, you will not be able to work, nor will you be able to leave to return home.

How do I pick the right rehabilitation programme?

Only you can decide what’s right for you. It’s vital to consider your budget, whether you want to go through rehab on an inpatient or outpatient basis and if you wish to go to rehab close to or far away from your home. The need to get treatment might feel urgent but making a quick wrong decision will hamper future efforts at staying clean—so take the time to research.
