Heswall Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres

Addiction to alcohol or drugs is an extremely complex condition which can only be fully overcome with the support of medical experts. Sadly, many people who abuse these substances fail to understand the severity of the damage they’re inflicting upon their psychological and physical health.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Heswall

Living with an addiction affects every aspect of your own life and impacts the lives of those around you and those who care about you most. You’re not only hurting yourself, but you’re devastating their lives as they constantly worry about you and often become conflicted on what they can do to help you.

 

Addiction Explained

Those who suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction are addicted because of the resulting feelings of euphoria, getting ‘high’, or simply feeling numb. The brain becomes used to these substances, so tolerance is built up, meaning more drugs or alcohol need to be consumed to feel the desired effect.

There’s not usually just one reason why someone becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol; there’s typically a combination of underlying reasons which may have caused an addiction to develop. We commonly see people begin with social drug or alcohol use which can quickly become dependent on the substance. This physical dependence brings uncontrollable cravings. This can become a complex psychological addiction, beginning with social consumption.

Another common factor influencing alcohol and drug addiction is the environment in which someone is raised. Unfortunately, parents or other relatives may influence younger people or peer pressure them into believing that drinking excessively or drug taking is the norm, so they don’t understand how devastating it can be.

Some people who begin abusing drugs or alcohol when they’re younger are often seen struggling in school or work because of the negative effects these substances have on your brain, leaving you unable to function properly.

Attempting to finance an expensive habit, such as drugs or alcohol, has also resulted in many people getting in trouble with the police. As the toxins within these substances affect the makeup of your brain, they also change your behaviours, making you more irritable and impulsive, particularly when you’re experiencing withdrawal from the substance.

Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab or NHS Rehab?

Once you’ve taken the brave step of deciding that you’re going to join a drug and alcohol rehab, you have a few decisions to make before you can move forward. Firstly, you can choose between inpatient (residential) rehab or outpatient rehab. Depending on what you want to achieve and what you need to achieve, long-term recovery will help to determine whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is best for you.

As an inpatient, you’ll stay at our rehab for around 30 days as you receive your treatment programme. You’ll benefit from around-the-clock care and support from our addiction specialists and enjoy a private room with home-cooked meals, and all your housekeeping is taken care of. This allows you to focus completely on your rehabilitation without distracting external factors.

In comparison, as an outpatient, you’ll stay at home and commute to local alcohol and drug rehab centre each day to receive your treatment. This treatment method is helpful for those who want to be fully supported each day by their family and keep a sense of independence as you can arrange your treatment around other commitments.

Whilst outpatient treatment certainly offers more flexibility. It’s mostly recommended for people suffering from a milder addiction to alcohol or drugs as slightly less supervision is offered. Inpatient treatment requires more commitment as you leave the outside world behind and solely focus on your recovery. We appreciate this may sound daunting; however, it’s only for a limited amount of time and has proven to be the most effective way to recover from drug or alcohol addiction fully.

 

The Detoxing Process

Medical drug and alcohol detoxification is the most recommended and effective way to gradually reduce your consumption of drugs or alcohol in a safe environment, like at our drug and alcohol rehab. Our medical team will assist you as your intake of the substance is reduced at a slow pace.

Eventually, you will be free from the substance and feel physically cleansed as you begin the next process of your treatment programme, which is typically therapy sessions which focus on breaking your psychological dependence on drugs or alcohol.

 

What Happens After Rehab?

Once you leave our drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll receive a fully personalised aftercare plan to help you continue your recovery upon your return home. This aftercare plan is essential in maintaining your motivation to continue your rehabilitation. We will support you throughout your aftercare so you won’t be completely alone.

Our dedicated aftercare team provides complimentary service for 12 months, including a 24/7 helpline, ongoing therapy sessions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, counselling, or relapse prevention, and access to local support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous.

We can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and support you in creating a new life and new behaviours without drugs or alcohol. Our team can also advise your friends or family if they want to be involved in your rehabilitation. They can understand your triggers and identify them before a potential relapse.

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 convince a family member to get help?

Approaching anyone about their addiction is never easy. Addicts can be quick to feel judged and threatened when approached about their addiction and by approaching them in the wrong way you can actually push them further away from getting the treatment they need. There is a lot of training and expertise required when staging an intervention and/or convincing someone who you care about to take the necessary steps to overcome their addiction. Approaching them from a place of understanding while also remaining firm about the impact their lifestyle is having on those around them is a necessary balance. For more information and guidance on this difficult topic, reach out to our helpline and enquire about our family and friend referral schemes.

When do I need to go to rehab?

An untreated addiction can cause a lot of damage – not only to your own physical and mental health but to your relationship, career and the well-being of those around you. It is therefore always best to seek help as soon as you acknowledge that you have a problem. Even if you have struggled with an addiction for years though, it is never too late to break the vicious cycle and finally break free from the grip of drugs and alcohol.

What does the admissions process entail?

A comprehensive admissions process is important as this will ensure that the treatment programme is safe and suitable and tailored for your own individual needs. Our trained advisors can answer any questions you might have and suggest the next course of action, while a pre-admission screening process will let us learn more about your requirements and devise your tailored treatment strategy.
