Residential Rehab versus Outpatient Programmes

There are a number of reasons why a stay in a residential drug rehab can be more effective than the sort of outpatient treatment typically offered on the NHS.

The NHS has many wonderful qualities of course, but resources in the area of addiction treatment can be stretched. There are very few residential options and there is likely to be a long waiting list – which can be risky given the risks associated with addiction and substance misuse.

Undergoing a home or community-based addiction treatment requires you to attend appointments and manage your own detoxification and treatments to a large extent.

This can be difficult to manage when you are juggling with the challenges of addiction. A residential rehab, on the other hand, puts you in a secure environment where you can really concentrate on your recovery.

The drug and alcohol rehab treatments you receive will be tailored to match your own circumstances and requirements as we know that every person being treated is an individual with problems and not just a statistic.

They will be delivered in a structured way that allows you to draw the greatest benefit from your stay. You will also be able to detox under direct medical supervision, with access to expert support 24/7. This can be very important as many people stumble at this hurdle.

Finally, the very fact of going to a residential rehab takes you out of your usual environment. This can be scary for some but you will be in a safe space, surrounded by calm professionals who are completely non-judgmental and are experienced at working with individuals from many different backgrounds and circumstances.

You will also be far away from the circles, people and places associated with your usual drinking or drug-taking habits.

 

Going through Detox

Detoxification is a crucial stage as this is the process during which your system processes the elements of drugs or alcohol that are in your system. This process – the point at which you actually get clean or sober up – is usually marked by intense cravings and a wide range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.

These can be extremely difficult and even dangerous to try to manage alone. You will still have to go through this unpleasant period but some of the effects may be mitigated with medication and the psychological support you receive can help you to stay strong.

 

Relapse Prevention and Rehab Treatments

Flushing the toxins out of your system is a huge step but it is certainly not the end of the journey. You also need to be equipped with the knowledge and tools you need to stay clean and sober once you return to your everyday life.

The exact mix of treatments you receive will vary depending on your individually tailored programme but will generally consist of a number of different therapies.

A drug or alcohol rehab will help you to explore the root causes of your addiction and examine the thought processes and behaviour surrounding your drinking and/or drug use.

There are a number of approaches that can help in this regard, with group therapy and one to one treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) being common.

Dual diagnosis will aim to identify and treat any issues to do with mental health and depression, which often accompany addiction and substance misuse. Treating an addiction without addressing related mental health problems could leave the overall problem only half dealt with, storing up problems for the future.

In some cases, existing mental health conditions can trigger substance misuse problems while in other cases, it is the drinking or drug use that causes or exacerbates the mental health condition. More often, it is a complex combination of the two.

A drug or alcohol rehab offering a holistic treatment programme may also take other aspects of your physical and mental health into account, healing the mind, body and soul through nutrition, exercise, well-being techniques such as meditation and complementary therapies such as art or music therapy.
