In the UK, there is a big culture surrounding drinking. Particularly the normalisation of binge drinking when with others.

How Do I Know if I’m Addicted to Drugs and Alcohol?
Lots of people struggle to accept that they have an addiction or even realise they are showing warning signs. But this is an important step in the recovery process. Some of the most common signs of an addiction include experiencing cravings and withdrawal symptoms without the substance, continuing to use it despite the negative effects it’s having on your life and going to extreme lengths to obtain the substance.
If something has made you question your own behaviour, it’s important to consider why. What’s more, if your drug and alcohol use is having an impact on your relationships, health, career, family life and finances, it’s likely that you’d benefit from professional help. Symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction can vary between people but our team can help you to come to terms with it or even acknowledge the fact that you might have an addiction.
Remember, addiction can happen to anyone, at any stage of life, and while it might feel very isolating currently, there is a way out and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

The Benefits of Rehab
As a serious medical condition that affects your mental and physical health, often the only way out of addiction is to attend a rehab clinic. While it might seem like a daunting prospect, there are lots of benefits to doing so. These include:
- Professional support and advice from medical professionals
- Mental health guidance and counselling
- A safe space to recover
- Leading treatments and state-of-the-art facilities
- Evidence-based therapy that treats physical and psychological addictions
While every rehab centre will have its own processes and treatment plans, you’ll be guided to mitigate the physical addiction while getting to understand and identify triggers and unhealthy behaviours. Using a combination of individual and group sessions, you’ll learn healthier mechanisms and have access to health and wellbeing advice to help you to carve out new habits.
Typically, you’ll have a choice between outpatient and inpatient treatment. Outpatient is where you return home in the evening and inpatient treatment, like the one provided at Asana Lodge, is where patients stay with us on-site. The decision of which is best can only be made by you but there are a few additional benefits of inpatient treatment.
Not only are you given 24/7 support and guidance in private alcohol rehab but you’ll be away from any temptations and distractions. This means you can give your full attention to your recovery and many experts believe that it offers the best chance for long-term recovery.
Another benefit of rehab is that you’ll work with specialist aftercare teams on relapse prevention to build your strength and resilience. This is essential if you want to stay away from drugs and alcohol in the outside world.
Finally, a rehab centre like Asana Lodge can help you to get back on track with your life – whatever that looks like for you. Why? Because we tailor each treatment plan to suit individuals and we use personal targets and goals that mean something to you. Whether you want to get back to work or move back in with your family, rehab professionals can help you to achieve the life you’ve always wanted.
What Happens During a Drug and Alcohol Detox?
A key part of your time at rehab will involve a detox. This is when any substances left in your body leave and can result in side effects and withdrawal symptoms. Lots of people try to detox at home but challenging side effects, which can become dangerous without monitoring, can make it very difficult to complete.
At an alcohol and drug rehab centre like Asana Lodge, however, you’ll be supported through the entire process. Not only will you know what to expect but a team of doctors, nurses and mental health specialists will assess you physically and mentally to ensure you’re coping. They can also prescribe medication to help ease the withdrawal symptoms during the detox period.
The alcohol and drug detox process can be very demanding on both your physical and mental strength but it’s an essential step if you want to recover, long-term. Detoxing in rehab is the safest way to do so and also offers higher rates of success. Once you have completed it, it’s time to get ready for therapy and treatment and you’ll be one step closer to the future.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you convince someone to go to rehab?
There is no set path to getting someone the help they need. You don’t know how people will react and it can turn into a very stressful situation. Getting educated about addiction as a disease, researching possible rehab options and looking for professional help are good ways to approach the topic. Having answers for possible reservations and being supported by a professional may put the person you are trying to convince more at ease and more amenable to the idea. The best thing you can do is to be understanding and avoid negativity.
How long does rehab last?
Rehab duration can often vary in certain, more severe, cases. However, most commonly we offer individuals a course of treatment which will last for around 28 days. A stay of this length is also more likely to increase the chances of a long-term recovery. It can seem a little daunting to commit to such a long course of treatment away from home, but the benefits of this duration cannot be understated.
Is long term recovery achievable?
Of course it is. It’s not something that happens overnight, and you must take life one day at a time – being sure to not put too much pressure on yourself and realise that the longest journeys are made by putting one foot in front of the other. Making use of the resources available and leaning on people for support will be key to achieving long-term recovery and leading a better life than the one that brought you to Asana Lodge.
