We have Treatment Centres in Hammersmith and Fulham

Substance misuse can cause untold damage and it can also become a vicious cycle when it spirals into addiction. You can build up a tolerance to drugs or alcohol that leaves you needing to take more and more to get the same effect.

At the same time, your system will come to rely on the chemicals being present, meaning you will start to suffer withdrawal symptoms when you do not get access to the substance.

Drug and alcohol addiction is characterised by a compulsion to keep using the drugs or alcohol even when you know there may be negative consequences.

It also has an impact on how your brain works, especially in areas such as reward, pleasure and compulsion control. All of this makes it very difficult to overcome addiction without the help of professional drug and alcohol services.

Read on to find out how drug and alcohol rehab in Hammersmith and Fulham could help you move forwards to a full and long-lasting recovery.

 

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatments in Hammersmith and Fulham

Deciding that you have a problem and need help to control your drinking and/or drug use is always a huge and positive step forward but it can be a bit bewildering knowing which treatment options to go for.

There are a number of ways of treating an alcohol or drug addiction, most of which include a number of steps such as detoxification, addiction therapies and relapse prevention. One of the biggest decisions to make is whether to go for residential treatment at a rehabilitation centre or to follow a community-based or outpatient rehab programme.

 

Outlining the Pros and Cons of Inpatient rehab

With inpatient rehabilitation you will be a resident at the rehab centre, staying at the facility for the duration of the addiction treatment programme. This has a number of benefits.

You will be away from the usual stresses, triggers and temptations of your everyday life, as well as all the people, places and situations associated with your drinking or drug use. You will have access to an array of trained and experienced addiction recovery professionals and will be able to concentrate on a structured programme of treatments tailored for your own individual circumstances.

Outpatient treatment is generally cheaper and may be free if provided via the NHS but there are some drawbacks with this approach. You will have to manage your own appointments, which can be difficult enough when you are in the grip of addiction. You will also largely have to manage your own detoxification, all while surrounded by triggers and temptations that can be very difficult to resist.

 

The Detoxification Process

Drug or alcohol detox is a difficult and potentially dangerous process as it usually involves dealing with a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. You will also experience extreme cravings and many people fall at this hurdle when attempting to quit drugs or alcohol on their own.

When undergoing detoxification at a detox clinic you will do so under round-the-clock supervision with all the support and medical assistance you need.

Prescription medications can help alleviate the worst of the withdrawal symptoms and you will also have expert moral support and counselling available. This is by far the safest and most effective way to undergo what is a vital and very difficult part of any recovery.

 

Addiction Treatment and Therapy Options

As well as detox you will be offered a range of addiction therapies and treatments aimed at helping you to explore the root causes of your addiction and to manage your thought processes and behaviours.

These could include talking therapies such as group therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT).

There may be health and well-being therapies such as art and music therapy, meditation, mindfulness and stress management. Some rehabs may also offer mental health treatments including dual diagnosis treatment for co-existing mental health conditions and addictions.

 

Relapse Prevention and Aftercare

The recovery process does not end when you leave rehab. You will leave equipped with the knowledge and tools you need to avoid relapse but there will still be times when you need support. Our relapse prevention and aftercare packages can help you stay strong and access that vital support just when you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

How do I access Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hammersmith and Fulham?

One question people often ask is, ‘How do I find a rehab near me?’ We can help you find not only the nearest drug and alcohol rehab but the one that is the right fit for your own personal circumstances. You can start the ball rolling with a simple message or phone call. Our admission services team can answer any queries you have and guide you through the process, while pre-admission screening can help us to draw up a personalized drug and alcohol treatment programme just for you.

What are the Aftercare Options?

A comprehensive aftercare programme is an important part of relapse prevention as you make your long-term recovery. Even after a stay in rehab, relapse will remain a danger for many people as stresses, temptations and cravings can all rear up. We offer a tailored 12-month aftercare plan providing support from our aftercare support network including medical professionals, addiction counsellors, volunteers and other sufferers who have been through drug and alcohol rehab.

How do I convince a loved one to go to Rehab?

People who are in the grip of substance misuse and addiction issues will often be in denial about the extent of their problems. In some cases they will get defensive and may deny that they have a problem at all. Sometimes it may take a professionally planned and guided family intervention to get them to face up to the impact their behaviour is having on those around them. We can also offer family and friend referral if you fear a loved one is struggling with addiction.
