What to expect in Rehab
There are many different types of drug and alcohol rehab in St Annes, but the main choice you’ll have to make is whether you want to opt for residential rehab or outpatient treatment.
Outpatient treatment is conducted whilst you’re living at home, so you’ll attend detoxification at a drug and alcohol clinic and then attend therapy at a rehab centre.
Whereas, for residential rehab you’ll receive all your drug and alcohol rehab treatments at a rehabilitation centre where you’ll stay for the duration of your treatment programme.
The benefit of residential rehab over outpatient treatment is the fact that you’re distanced from your daily life, where your addiction has taken over. This distance can provide you with the reflective space you need to overcome the initial withdrawal symptoms and treat your mental health and depression or anxiety that has stemmed from your addiction.
By taking time out of your daily life we can help you develop coping strategies away from your negative influences. Rehab treatment programmes usually last around 28 days, during which time you’ll undergo detoxification and undertake therapies to help you understand your addiction.
After you’ve completed your programme you’ll be provided with an aftercare programme to help you maintain sobriety.
Benefits of Rehab
Admitting you have an addiction is often the hardest step in the long road to recovery. The origin of the term addiction comes from the latin “enslaved by”, or “bound to”. This sums up the nature of addiction, as its encased in denial, making it extremely difficult for any addict to admit to their addiction and seek help.
However, as you’re reading this article it would seem that you have admitted, on some level, that you’re an addict, which is the first step to recovery.
Rehabilitation is often envisioned as clinical and prison-like. Most of our inpatients are pleasantly surprised when they enter our facilities, as they are homely and welcoming. We provide state of the art facilities, with evidence based treatment options, that include detoxification, therapies, alongside fitness and wellbeing workshops and classes.
If you’re still not sure about residential rehab, here are some of the main benefits you’ll encounter:
- Round the clock care and support
- Experienced medical staff
- Peer support from other inpatients
- Personalised treatment programmes
- Medically supervised detoxification
- Range of therapy options
- Fitness and wellbeing workshops and classes to help you develop a more positive lifestyle
- Aftercare support and guidance
How to Prevent Relapse
Chances are, you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in St Annes because you’ve already tried and failed quitting your addiction at home. Rehabilitation can offer you a better solution, as it’ll provide you with the tools and support you need in order to prevent relapse.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is key for relapse prevention, as it helps you work through your negative thought processes to establish a healthier, more positive outlook on life with coping strategies for any cravings or high risk situations.
However, relapse prevention is a process that takes a lot of time and effort to work through. You will need to change your life, be more honest with yourself and others, ask for help when you know you need it, practice self care to ensure you’re kind to yourself and never break the rules; it’s not possible to relapse just on holiday and return to normal when you get home.
At Ocean Recovery, we’ll work through viable relapse prevention strategies with you to prepare you for life outside of residential rehab.
Upon arrival at drug and alcohol rehab in St Annes, you’ll undergo a full medical assessment, whereby our medical staff will determine your physical and psychological well-being. Once this is diagnosed, our medical staff will work with you to develop a treatment programme for your 28 day stay.
Since some patients arrive still under the influence, all treatment programmes begin with detoxification. The process of detox is quite simple; to slowly reduce the levels of consumption until your body is free from the substance. However, this process must always be conducted under medical supervision due to the withdrawal symptoms that can arise.
The severity of the withdrawal symptoms that you’ll encounter is dependant on the length and severity of your addiction, but, rest assured, our experienced staff have prescription drugs on hand to help ease the worst of these symptoms.
After a few days detox is usually complete, after which you’ll start your therapy treatment. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the main form of therapy used to treat addiction, since it provides you with an understanding of your addiction and can help develop coping strategies by helping you change habits and thought processes.
Alongside your therapy you’ll be able to take part in group sessions, workshops and classes to help you develop a more healthy and positive lifestyle. Self-care is key in relapse prevention, which is why we help you develop a lifestyle that promotes self-care before you leave the centre.
Once you’ve completed your drug and alcohol rehab treatments, we’ll provide you with an aftercare programme to help you settle back into daily life, maintain a support network and achieve long term recovery.
