Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Leigh

Only a short decade ago people in living in Leigh had little support in the way of professional drug and alcohol treatment. The most assistance you could expect was a visit to your local GP.

Unlike other health problems, your NHS general practitioner would have available no ‘specialist’ to refer you to. You were therefore expected ‘try to cut down on your drinking or drug use’ on your own.

In the North West of England, Ocean Recovery Centre has been working hard to ensure people from Leigh also had a place to go if they needed help beating their addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Our drug and alcohol rehab clinics have already helped many people from Leigh become drug and alcohol free, from all walks of life, and you could be one of them soon.

How our Drug and Alcohol Rehab centre can help you

The first step before picking up the phone and calling us, is self-reflection. Once you feel that you indeed suffer from an addiction, you have made the first and biggest step.

Many people are not entirely convinced that alcoholism and/or drug addiction is a disease that can happen to the best of us. It’s very common for people who are suffering from an addiction to be in complete denial about their condition.

So, if you’re able to admit to yourself and to those around you that you need professional support, you’ve made a very brave step in moving forward towards your long-term recovery.

Remarks such as “addiction is for the weak” are still being used this far into the 21st century. The opposite has been proven time and time again by researchers and scientists. Addiction is a brain disorder.

Your first port of call is one of our addiction specialists, who will start an intake conversation with you regarding your behaviour. Once we get to know you a little bit better, we build a specific program based on your needs, wants and situation.

The first step at our rehab centre is often the detoxification process. This is where you withdraw from drinking or drug taking in a controlled environment, as the withdrawal symptoms are particularly heavy for those who having been abusing severely and for a long period of time.

We employ medical professionals round the clock, to supervise you through the withdrawal process and to ease the withdrawal symptoms where possible.

Withdrawal symptoms vary between each person depending on the severity of each addiction.

Most people experience mild withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, headaches, dizziness, but it’s also possible to suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms such as delirium tremens, seizures or insomnia, so it’s critical that you have an expert team of medical professionals by your side.

 

What Treatment options do we offer?

We also offer post-detox services, like cognitive behavioural therapy, also known as CBT.

This is where you analyse your own behaviour and make changes where appropriate to ensure you will never relapse again into these dangerous drinking habits. Knowing what sets off your urges to drink or take drugs, can help you avoid these situations.

At our residential rehab centre near Leigh, we have years of experience when it comes to drug or alcohol addiction. Our exceptional team of doctors, psychiatrists, therapists, and recovery workers will work with you to help you identify the underlying reasons of your addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Knowing what may have caused your addiction allows you to recognise the associating triggers, and in time, learn how to avoid these, thus preventing a potential relapse.

It’s important to know that drug and alcohol addiction can’t be overcome using medication alone. The only way for you to truly achieve long-term recovery is to dedicate yourself to a rehab programme like ours in Leigh.

You need to address your physical, psychological, social, and emotional connections with drugs and alcohol. You must be ready and willing to put all of your efforts into your addiction treatments otherwise they’re unlikely to take effect as they should.

To ensure you receive a well-balanced, holistic approach to your treatment plan, we include a mixture of carefully selected therapies which focus on both your psychological health and your general well-being.

In addition to cognitive behavioural therapy, we also deliver evidence-based psychological therapies such as stress management, individual, group or family counselling, motivational interviewing, and relapse prevention.

As we said, it’s also important for your general well-being to be taken of, with this in mind, our expert team also deliver mindfulness, yoga, low level laser therapy, relaxation and sleep management, nutritional supplement therapy, art therapy, and fitness therapy.

Whilst these may seem unusual, we can assure you they’ve proven to be highly successful in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

 

Do we offer Mental Health support?

All of our treatment options include comprehensive mental health support, this is a critical aspect to anyone’s recovery journey. Poor mental health and addictions to drugs and alcohol are commonly seen together; we refer to this as a dual diagnosis.

There’s no need to feel concerned if you’re suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction and mental health problems, it’s quite common.

A dual diagnosis occurs when someone who has poor mental health begins abusing drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with their psychological pain, or vice versa, excessive substance abuse has caused psychological trauma leading to mental health problems.

In any case, our local drug and alcohol rehab centre in Leigh is here to help you create a future to look forward to.
