Drug and Alcohol Rehab Huyton

An addiction to drugs or alcohol is difficult to overcome on your own. When most sufferers try to get clean, they do so by going cold turkey. This approach often leads to failure, and it can be an incredibly dangerous thing to do.

If you are dependent on drugs or alcohol and stop drinking or using, your body and brain will begin to crave the pleasurable effects it now finds itself lacking. You will enter withdrawal. Withdrawal can manifest in both physical and psychological symptoms.

It is always an uncomfortable process and often a painful one. Because withdrawal is so unpleasant, and the euphoria associated with drug and alcohol use are so pleasurable, the resulting cravings often prove too hard to resist. The risk of accidental overdose is high at this stage because users will often consume more to make up for the lost time and delayed pleasure.

If you are trying to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol, going cold turkey is not the way to do it. The most effective way to combat a drug or alcohol addiction is by undergoing professional treatment at a private addiction rehabilitation centre.

 

Is Private Rehab Worthwhile?

When it comes to addiction rehab, there are two options. The first is to receive the publicly funded programmes of care offered by the NHS. There are many merits to the support programmes offered by the NHS, and depending on the nature of your addiction this course of action might be right for you. Unfortunately, due to low funding and understaffing, public rehab treatments tend to have very long waiting lists.

Every day that passes while you wait for treatment increases the risk of debilitating or even deadly health consequences. Furthermore, the addiction treatment offered by the public health sector tends to be outpatient in nature, which means you will have scheduled appointments with a therapist but will have to go home after each session.

This means you will still have to deal with the stresses and pressures of your everyday life whilst battling with your addiction, and you will still have to go through the withdrawal period at home with easy access to drugs and alcohol.

Private rehab is much more effective. At Ocean Recovery we offer residential care, which means you will stay at our comfortable clinic by the beach, overlooking the beautiful waters of the Irish Sea.

Our team of dedicated medical professionals will be on hand to guide you through the worst of withdrawal, making it by far the safest option. And, perhaps most importantly, you will be in a safe and regulated space, far from the pressure and stress of your everyday life.

 

Signs You Need Treatment

Sometimes it can be difficult to realise that you have a problem with substance abuse. The transition from occasional and casual drinking or drug use to full-blown substance dependency can be a very slippery slope. Below are some of the common warning signs and symptoms to look out for:

  • Feeling ill or unwell when you haven’t had a drink or taken any drugs for a while
  • Feeling agitated, anxious or paranoid when you haven’t had a drink or taken any drugs for a while
  • Constantly thinking ahead to or planning your next drink or hit
  • Unusual changes to your behaviour. Maybe increased recklessness or aggression
  • Financial difficulties as a result of your drinking or drug use
  • Strained relationships as a result of your drinking or drug use

If you can relate to any of these situations, then it might be time to admit that you need some help.

 

What Happens in Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

The first stage of rehab is detox. Detox is the name given to the period and process when your body processes and flushes out the harmful substances that are affecting it. It is at this stage that you will experience those withdrawal symptoms. At our clinic, you will have focussed and dedicated care throughout this difficult process.

The other half of rehab is therapy. Addiction is not just a physical problem, it is a psychological one too. In order to recover fully, it is important that you address the root causes of your dependency issues and develop healthy coping strategies to ensure that you can stay sober once you have left out clinic.

We offer many different kinds of therapy, adopting a holistic approach to our care. But the most effective method of treatment is usually cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a kind of talking therapy that is intended to help you break self-destructive patterns of thought. CBT is usually used to treat anxiety, but it has proven highly valuable in the treatment of addiction.

Addictions We Treat

At Ocean Recovery, we specialise in the treatment of alcohol addiction. Alcoholism is a huge problem in England. There are an estimated 602,391 dependent drinkers in England, only 18% of whom are receiving treatment.1 It is our mission to make sure that as many people as possible get the help that they need.

As well as alcohol addiction treatment, we also offer rehab for a number of different drug dependencies. If you are suffering with an addiction to cocaine, heroin, or cannabis, we can help you.

An addiction to a prescription drug can be every bit as serious as an addiction to an illicit drug, so we also offer help to those suffering with dependencies on prescribed painkillers.
