Do you need drug and alcohol rehabilitation?
In our experience, we’ve found that many people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs struggle to acknowledge that they have a problem. However, this is an integral step in working towards your long-term recovery.
We recognise how challenging it can be to ask someone for help, but we can assure you that we’ve helped countless people along their journey to recovery with varying severities of addiction; it all starts with one phone call or email.
It’s common to downplay your drug and alcohol abuse or to be in complete denial that you have an addiction. If you’re still not convinced that you require urgent drug and alcohol rehabilitation, then ask yourself these questions.
- Have you noticed any physical or psychological health problems?
You’re highly likely to develop damaging physical and psychological health problems as a result of excessive drug and alcohol abuse. Addiction can cause frequent nausea, chronic headaches or migraines, liver problems, heart problems, anxiety, and depression, just to name a few!
- How often do you use alcohol or drugs?
If you’re excessively consuming alcohol or drugs every day and only feel satisfied once you’ve had your ‘fix’, then it’s quite clear that you need professional support to stop this damaging behaviour.
- How do you feel when you’re not using alcohol or drugs?
When you’re not consuming the substance, is it all you can think about? These cravings are an indication that you’re physically dependent on alcohol or drugs which is a huge cause for concern; this should be addressed immediately by our drug and alcohol rehab in Walsall.
- Is your addiction to alcohol or drugs impacting on your relationships?
People who are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse tend to believe that they’re only having an impact on themselves, no one else. However, your behaviours significantly impact the lives of those around you, whether it’s physically, psychologically, emotionally, financially, or otherwise. Don’t damage your loved ones lives as well as your own.
- Is your addiction to alcohol or drugs affecting your career?
Of course, as your physical and psychological health is negatively impacted, your performance at work will become worse as you struggle to think logically. You may have become more tempted to take needless sick days to avoid going into work which is another indicator that you require professional support.
How does our residential addiction treatment work?
We take great pride in creating a relaxing and homely atmosphere at our private drug and alcohol rehab in Walsall. It’s important that you feel as comfortable as possible whilst undergoing your residential addiction treatment as it takes a lot of hard work to get your desired results.
You’ll most likely begin your treatment programme with a drug and alcohol detoxification to cleanse yourself of the harmful toxins. As you gradually reduce your intake of alcohol or drugs, you’ll begin to experience withdrawal symptoms.
These can range from mild feelings of sickness or dizziness to quite severe seizures or insomnia, which is why it’s crucial that you’re monitored 24/7 by our professional team of addiction specialists.
They’re able to ensure you’re safe and can ease the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms with prescribed medication if needed. Detoxification is extremely dangerous to attempt at home or without any professional support, you could cause serious harm to yourself; we strongly advise against it.
Once you’ve successfully completed your drug and alcohol detoxification, you’ll hopefully feel much more motivated to take on the rest of your treatment programme.
Our therapies are all evidence-based and focus on the social, emotional, and psychological effects of drug or alcohol addiction. We include a carefully selected mix of well-being focused therapies and traditional, psychological therapies to give you the best chance of achieving your long-term recovery goals.
Our expert team deliver cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, counselling, motivation interviewing, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, mindfulness, relaxation and sleep management, art therapy, fitness therapy, and nutritional therapy.
Although these may sound quite daunting at first, we’re confident that they’ll be invaluable tools for your recovery journey.
During your time at our private drug and alcohol rehab in Walsall, you’ll likely develop fantastic support groups which you can continue to benefit from after leaving our residential addiction treatment programme.
Drug and alcohol aftercare programme to aid your recovery
Our aim is to help you to achieve your long-term recovery in the most effective and efficient way for your unique condition.
We can help you learn how to recognise your triggers and in turn avoid any potential relapses which are most common within the first 12 months of leaving our rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
This is mainly because you’re transitioning back into life at home and learning how to integrate your new behaviours into your familiar surroundings.
Our dedicated aftercare team provide you with 12 months free drug and alcohol aftercare. This will help to relieve some of the pressures of daily life and encourage you to keep working hard along your journey to recovery.
We’ll continue to support you whilst at home and recommend local groups or ongoing therapies to assist with any concerns you may have. We can’t emphasise enough how much verbally acknowledging your worries can help, particularly with people who are going through similar struggles to you.
