What Is The Admission Process?
Once you’ve made initial contact with our team, either over the phone, through email or on our online chat, we’ll arrange a free initial assessment with you.
The aim of this assessment is to meet you in person to discuss your addiction, current lifestyle and medical history. This information will help us to determine which rehab centre would be most suited to you, residential rehab close to home or a centre further afield. We can also start to discuss with you treatment options.
You’ll have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like about Asana Lodge and the treatment service we provide. It’s important that you’re committed to your recovery to enable your treatment to be effective.
If you’re concerned about meeting us at the rehab centre we can arrange to come to you, but this will be at an extra cost.
The aim of this assessment is to ensure you’re committed to your own recovery and to schedule an admission date into our residential rehab in Swansea.
What’s Involved In Rehab At Asana Lodge?
All of our drug and alcohol treatment centres are run using holistic treatment programmes. We understand that each recovery is a personal journey, which is why we tailor our treatments to the individual, but all programmes will follow the same structure.
Upon arrival to rehab at Swansea, you’ll be taken on a tour of the luxury facilities by our staff, whereby you’ll be shown the grounds and encouraged to make the most of the amenities during your stay.
Once settled, you’ll undergo a medical examination. The results of this examination are used by our medical team to determine your treatment program.
You’ll start with a detox. This process is always conducted under medical supervision to help manage the withdrawal symptoms. The more severe your addiction the worse your withdrawal symptoms are likely to be. Detox can last from a couple of days to a week or two depending on your level of addiction and works to slowly decrease the level of consumption until you’re free from the substance.
Our holistic approach to treatment means we design programmes to treat both the physical and psychological impacts of addiction. This means that during your stay you’ll undergo therapy. There are many different types of therapy, but the therapy you are provided with is determined through your medical assessment by our medical professionals. You will often be provided with one or more of the following:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – employed for the analysis of unhealthy behaviours to encourage a healthier approach to day to day life.
- Motivational Sessions – working alongside you helping you to gain self-confidence and outlook for your future.
- Support Groups – Network of like-minded people to provide support and guidance.
- Individual Therapy – May include a vast array of therapies, including traditional speaking therapy, previously mentioned CBT and psychoanalytical. Dependent on your requirements.
We also provide more unique therapy options, such as Satori Chair and Intravenous Brain Restoration.
Satori Chair therapy uses sound wave vibrations to help achieve a meditative state of mind, whereas Intravenous Brain Restoration focuses on brain health and activity.
Alongside both theory and detox, you’ll work with our on-site nutritionist to develop a dietary plan that is aimed at providing you with the minerals and nutrients required for repair, relaxation and restoration.
How Do I Know I’m An Addict?
Addiction is defined as something you have no control over doing, but which becomes harmful to you. Anyone can become an addict and addiction can relate to many different things, such as work, shopping, drugs or alcohol.
If you can’t go 24 hours without consuming a substance or performing an action, it is highly likely you’re addicted. Simply by reading this article suggest you’re concerned that you’re an addict. Either way its always best to seek help early on, even if you aren’t certain. Addiction is progressive, in the sense that it will only continue to get worse.
The process of addiction, whether its drugs, alcohol or shopping, is about feeling good, successful, having a sense of achievement, or a “high”, which means that you continue seeking this feeling; fuelling your addiction. This repetitive behaviour will form a habit that becomes an addiction; something you depend on for the “good” feeling. Once established this behavioural pattern is extremely hard to change, especially when it involves substance misuse, as your body becomes just as dependant as your mind.
To achieve long term recovery you must seek professional help to treat both the physical and psychological impacts and causes of addiction.
What Happens When I Leave?
Upon successful completion of rehab, we’ll provide you with an aftercare package, which will include 12 months of free support after you leave our rehab centre.
We can introduce you to local support groups, help you rebuild broken relationships, set up family therapy, and help you find employment again. Our aim is to provide you with the tools to achieve long term sobriety.
Our support team is always there to guide and advise you every step of the way.
