Are you searching for an Ireland based drug and alcohol rehab centre? Find out more about our local recovery facility. We will get you clean.
Alcohol has long been a part of Irish culture, but there’s a big difference between a few celebratory drinks and an addiction. According to studies, around 54% of 18-75 year old alcohol drinkers in Ireland where considered to be harmful drinkers, putting it high on the list when compared to other EU countries. Similarly, illegal drug use is on the rise, with local services in the Republic of Ireland stretched to their limit. If you need help, and don’t want to be stuck on a waiting list, then the Ocean Recovery Centre can help.
If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Ireland, it’s worth considering rehab centres that are a short journey away, as this gives you the chance to spend some time away from home. The Ocean Recovery Centre is set in Blackpool, close to both Liverpool and Manchester airports, with most flights to Ireland taking under an hour. We can often offer admission within 48 hours, so there are no more delays to your treatment.
Going through detox and rehab
The first step in addiction treatment is to go through detox. For many people, their drinking or drug use has spiralled out of control, leading to them becoming dependent on these substances. Detox allows them to break the cycle, getting all the drugs and alcohol out of their bodies so they can begin to heal. Staying in the safe environment of rehab centres can make detox a little easier, as you can be prescribed medication that helps with the worst of the side effects. For many people, managing to come off these substances is a big relief and can feel like a fresh start.
The next step of drug and alcohol rehab in Ireland is to go through therapy. Drug and alcohol rehab treatment includes many different forms of therapy, depending on your needs, and this will be assessed when you first arrive at the Ocean Recovery Centre. Our addiction counsellors are great at helping people who drink to excess or take drugs change their habits for life, allowing them to rebuild and find a brighter future.
While you stay at the Ocean Recovery Centre, we provide a peaceful, pleasant environment and a home away from home. You can stay in a comfortable bedroom, enjoy the communal areas, and take part in outings and activities. Residential treatment allows you to get intensive therapy, which can be hard work, so we try to balance your schedule with quiet time and enjoyable things too.
Is it time for drug and alcohol rehab?
Each person with an addiction reaches their own rock bottom when they realise enough is enough. However, you don’t need to wait until your drug and alcohol addiction becomes severe before you get help. As with any disease, the earlier you can treat it, the better, so you should never feel silly getting in touch.
There can be many things that lead you to rock bottom. It could be the breakdown of a relationship, debt, a job loss or even legal troubles caused by your addiction. However, it may simply be a desire to get your life under control and to no longer feel the ill-effects of alcohol or drugs. We don’t have a particular criteria to access our treatment programme, simply that you are willing to give it your best and commit to a life of sobriety.
Paying for private care
It can be extremely difficult to find drug and alcohol rehab in Ireland that’s funded by the HSE and residential rehabilitation in particular has very long waiting lists. Urgent cases are often prioritised ahead of other cases, which means you may not ever get to the top of the list for help.
While alcohol and drug rehabs are not the cheapest option, there are ways that the cost can be made more affordable, such as health insurance or private health schemes. We aim to make your stay at the Ocean Recovery Centre represent good value for money, including all expenses in the price so that there are no surprises.
When we give you a quote, it’s worth weighing up the cost of going to clinics in Ireland versus continuing with your addiction. Not only are alcohol and drugs expensive, addiction can lead to all sorts of issues in your career and personal life, which can also have an impact on your finances.
Aftercare and support
When you stay in the safe environment of rehab clinics, you will be kept away from temptation and well supported. This means you might be worried about what happens when your 28-day programme comes to an end. Luckily, there are plenty of ongoing treatment options to keep you on track after rehab, and if you complete a programme with us you get a year of free aftercare. These support group sessions are an excellent way to keep in touch with your fellow patients and also to build a support network.
Outside of treatment centres, there are other community organisations who can help you stay sober. Many people who’ve completed rehab at the Ocean Recovery Centre go on to Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, as they may find the 12-steps approach works well for them. Others choose extended care such as additional individual or family therapy, It’s important to find what works for you, and we’ll spend a lot of time talking about your aftercare to ensure that you’re very well looked after.
