Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Blackpool

In the United Kingdom, there were “9,214 alcohol related deaths (around 15 per 100,000 people), the mortality rates are highest among people aged 55-69” according to alcoholchange.org.

They go on to state that “alcohol misuse is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15-49 year-olds in the UK, and the fifth biggest risk factor across all ages”.

When we look at drug related deaths in the UK, The BMJ tells us that “nearly 4400 drug poisoning deaths were registered in England and Wales in 2019, the highest number since records began in 1993, a report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has shown”.

These statistics are incredibly concerning for all of us in the UK and one of the main contributors as to why the demand for drug and alcohol rehabs has risen.

 

Why do you need Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Like most things, drinking alcohol is not that big of an issue if it is done responsibly and in moderation, yet there is a threshold of consumption where it turns from an innocent pastime, to a life-endangering substance that could destroy your life.

Your body can start being dependant on alcohol after a prolonged period of usage; this is where it gets dangerous. Similarly, with drug abuse, what may start off with small amounts of ‘less serious’ drugs or a dependency on prescribed medication can quickly turn into a severe addiction.

There is no reason to panic, because at Ocean Recovery Centre, we are here to help you beat your alcohol or drug addiction.

Throughout England and the rest of the United Kingdom, you are more than welcome to visit us at our drug and alcohol rehab Blackpool.

Our fantastic team are trained psychiatrists, therapists and recovery workers who can help you to identify the underlying reasons of your addiction to alcohol or drugs, thus helping you to recognise your triggers to avoid a potential relapse.

We address both your physical and psychological connection to drugs or alcohol through various evidence-based therapy techniques.

Despite what you may have heard, it’s impossible to recover from an addiction with medication alone, it’s vital that you focus on breaking that psychological connection to substance abuse otherwise you’ll be at much higher risk of relapsing.

One of the many great benefits which our residential rehab in Blackpool offers is a well-balanced, holistic approach to your addiction treatment plan, giving you the very best opportunity to achieve your long-term recovery.

Another benefit of joining a residential rehab is that you’ll have the undivided support of our exceptional recovery team all day, every day.

Throughout the duration of your stay with us which is normally around 28 days, we will guide you through a drug and alcohol detoxification, psychological and well-being therapies, and into your aftercare programme.

You’re much more likely to achieve long-term recovery from alcohol or drugs whilst staying at a residential rehab. This is because you’re in a peaceful, recovery focused environment with like-minded people.

If you were to attempt to recover at home without the support of a professional team or the right relaxing setting, you’re unlikely to succeed. Home life brings with it many distractions and possible negative influences which could set you back in your treatment and cause a debilitating relapse.

At our rehab in Blackpool, there’s no distractions, all you have to focus on is getting healthy and going home with an effective treatment plan to continue your long-term recovery.

 

Why can’t I stop my substance abuse?

As previously mentioned, drinking alcohol in moderation is not a cardinal sin. Many people are able to enjoy a few units every week without any repercussions. Yet, there are many under us who cannot keep their drinking under control.

Researchers and scientists have studied many different causes for a predisposition to alcohol addiction.

Some argue that alcoholism runs in the genes, and that children of alcoholics have a bigger chance of becoming an alcoholic. Being raised in a certain way, and exposure to alcoholism can be a factor in the becoming of an alcoholic.

Mental health issues are also linked with alcohol and drug abuse. Many people use substance abuse as a resort for their problems and feelings. Depression and anxiety go hand-in-hand with alcoholism and drug taking and ends up with a person getting stuck in a vicious circle.

If you’re suffering from both an addiction to drugs or alcohol and a mental health problem, we call this a dual diagnosis which we’re very familiar with treating.

 

Is it going to be difficult to overcome my Addiction?

Alcohol or drugs are one of the hardest substances to withdraw from. Depending on the level of the addiction, the withdrawal symptoms can be very heavy on the client.

In severe cases, there is a possibility of seizures, insomnia, or delirium tremens (the DT’s), which can lead to death or lasting psychiatric issues. This is why it’s so crucial to undergo a detox in a professional environment where you’re surrounded with expert addiction specialists.

That is why we offer a professional team at our Blackpool Centre that will be able to supervise you round the clock, until you are ready to go into the post-detoxification stage.

If you need help immediately, contact us today for more information on what we could do to help you beat your drug or alcohol addiction.

Ocean Recovery in Blackpool combines comfort and luxury, with an intensive programme of therapy and treatments for drug addiction or alcohol addiction.
