Start Your Addiction Treatment Plan Today
Asana Lodge’s helpline workers are well-versed in helping people at all stages of addiction to feel at ease and calm during preparation for the stark transition into residential rehab life.
You do not need to call our helpline to simply start a treatment plan, but you can also ring to find out more about the process of your recovery journey with us.
However, if you are ready to start the transition into an addiction treatment plan that will see you realise your dream of long-term recovery, then our helpline workers will perform a small pre-admission interview.
This “interview” is not something that you should be concerned about; instead, it is simply a way by which our rehab’s medical staff and therapists can ascertain more information about your wants from a recovery plan and how you’re currently feeling.
All of this information is not curiosity for curiosity’s sake, rather this information will mean that our doctors and therapists are able to draw up a treatment plan for you in advance of you arriving at our facility — thus meaning that you can hit the ground running in regards to your treatment.
Here at Asana Lodge, we understand that one of the main things that people can worry about with private residential drug and alcohol treatment can be the cost.
Therefore, we want to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us, and experience the best possible recovery. Furthermore, as a part of our pre-admission interview, we can also discuss flexible budgets in advance of receiving treatment.
Once you are at our facility and ready to start off your treatment, then we can begin the process of medically assisted detoxification.
What Is Detoxification?
Asana Lodge’s detox clinic is one of the best features of our residential rehabilitation centres. As the name suggests, our state-of-the-art detox clinic provides a physical course of detoxification treatment that minimises the risk to you while you endure the process of withdrawal.
Most people suffering from an addictive disorder know the dangers that alcohol withdrawal or narcotics withdrawal can pose to a person’s body and mind. As such, medically-assisted detox ensures that the side-effects of this horrific, yet necessary, process are kept to their milder forms.
Medically-assisted detox, as you can probably gather, will often implement a course of carefully prescribed and administered medication to ease the transition from dependency to sobriety.
The type of medication and dosage will be carefully worked out by our medically-trained staff depending upon what form of addiction it is that you are overcoming.
Psychiatric Intervention And Relapse Prevention
Taking the negative substances out of your body is only one stage of the recovery process sadly, we also need to rid your mind of the influence of your addictive disorder.
This process can be a little more tricky than detoxification. However, we have a surplus of different therapies and treatments which can clear your mind of addictive tendencies.
Working alongside our addiction specialists throughout your time with us, you will work with the goal of forming a relapse prevention plan. This plan, consisting of carefully cultivated coping strategies and behavioural triggers, will help you to avoid falling prey to old tendencies when you find yourself presented with an event or situation where you would once have resorted to using.
You shall also learn to identify when you’re at risk of “using” far earlier than normal and thus be able to avoid relapsing with much greater ease than in lieu of a relapse prevention plan.
Psychological treatments such as one-to-one counselling therapy, trauma counselling, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) and dual-diagnosis treatment will further strengthen your mental resolve, massively lowering your chance of relapsing post-rehab.
Kick start your 28-day addiction treatment plan today by contacting 01908 489 421.
