Drug and alcohol addiction ruins lives. Get free from this illness at our comfortable and affordable rehab centre in Leicester. Alcohol is the most consumed substance worldwide, as much as more than a billion people have a drink regularly.
In most cultures it is very acceptable to drink on social occasions, but only if the amount and frequency of drinking is moderate. For millions of people who drink, this is not the case.
Alcohol is dangerous and addictive when consumed in large volumes, that is why here at Ocean Recovery, we’re proud to offer fantastic treatment options at our drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester to those that live in Leicestershire or in the Midlands area.
I think I have a drug or Alcohol Addiction. What should I do now?
Admitting that you are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs is one of the hardest steps you can take towards becoming sober. This is the first step many fail to take as addiction is still stigmatised.
Many people still consider drug or alcohol addiction to be a sign of weakness, and therefore hide and suffer quietly. It’s also quite common to find these people in complete denial about their condition, they could be unable to recognise the devastating impact which substance misuse is having on their life.
Once you are ready to take this brave step and come to terms with your addiction, call our drug and alcohol rehab Leicester on 01253 847 553.
One of our specialists will get in touch with you immediately to discuss treatment options and what we can do for you.
Once you agree to undergo your treatment programme with us, we can set a date and pick you up from Leicester. You’ll be one step closer to achieving your long-term recovery goals.
Am I ready for Drug and Alcohol Rehab?
If you’re still unsure as to whether your drug or alcohol addiction warrants a visit to our rehab clinic, then we have some common signs to look out for which are likely to indicate that you’d benefit greatly from a structured recovery programme.
– Has there been a change in your physical health? One of the most noticeable effects of substance misuse is physical deterioration. You may notice your eyes becoming blood shot, or your skin looking paler with a gaunt appearance.
Drug and alcohol addiction can cause unsightly skin sores in addition to significant, unhealthy weight loss or weight gain.
– Have you noticed a change in motivation and performance at work? The devastating impact which substance misuse has on both your body and your mind can leave you feeling demotivated, lazy, and uninterested in performing tasks well. You might feel as though you’re unable to function or carry out what were once simple tasks, all of this could potentially lead you to a dismissal.
– Are you experiencing conflict with loved ones? As drug or alcohol addiction effects your mental and physical health so dramatically, it’s likely that you’re feeling subdued, even depressed, as you lose all interest in socialising. During this time, you’re unlikely to take care of yourself, leaving you unable to offer meaningful support to anyone else. It’s a difficult situation for friends or family members to understand, they may say the wrong thing or feel as though they can’t do anything to help, distancing themselves from you even further.
– Are you struggling financially? Of course, fuelling a habit like drug or alcohol addiction is extremely expensive. The more you consume, the more you become addicted and the more you spend. In our experience, we’ve seen people bankrupt themselves in order to keep their habit going. Don’t let this happen to you.
Many of these signs indicate that you’ve entered a vicious cycle of substance misuse and require urgent support from a drug and alcohol rehab centre. Don’t let addiction ruin your life, make a change today by getting in touch with our treatment centre; it’s time to invest in yourself.
The Detox Process
Detoxification is an important step, and the first one within the clinic. Detoxification, or detox for short, is the process of cleansing your body from toxins like alcohol and drugs.
It is important that you do this in a safe place such as our rehab clinic where we have medical professionals available who can administer necessary medication in order to make the withdrawal process easier.
Withdrawal symptoms are common when going through the detox process, however they can be quite serious for some people. Whilst some may experience mild sickness, dizziness, or headaches, others can suffer from insomnia, seizures, or even delirium tremens (the DT’s).
These serious symptoms require urgent medical attention to ensure you’re safe, thus emphasising the need for an expert team of recovery workers by your side.
For severe addicts, attempting a detoxification without professional support could be life threatening.
Our Specialist Therapy and Rehab
Therapy is a highly effective post-detox treatment option. In many cases, there are underlying conditions or experiences that have led to your drug or alcohol addiction.
Our evidence-based therapies can help get to the bottom of the issues that have caused you to find solace in alcohol or drugs. Knowing these underlying causes and the accompanying triggers could help you to find better ways to cope with your situation.
After completing your rehabilitation programme with our treatment centre in Leicester, you’ll be given a bespoke aftercare programme to follow which we offer free for 12 months.
We believe that this aftercare is just as important as your residential treatment programme, it’s critical in continuing your progress to long-term recovery once you’ve returned home.
We can help you with a variety of treatments at our drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester.
