Lewisham Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres
It’s a sad fact that drug addiction and alcohol addiction is a developing problem across the United Kingdom.
Rehab for drug and alcohol abuse
A city the size of London is not exempt from this and residents of Lewisham are as much at risk as anyone else. There’s no particular kind of person who develops a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction, it can happen to anyone.
We offer private drug and alcohol rehab and are proud of the number of people we’ve helped since we opened our doors.
With a 28-day commitment to our residential addiction treatment, we will help you to be substance-free and ready to resume your life without the negative influence of drugs and alcohol.
Do you live in Lewisham? Are you concerned with the amount of drugs you’re taking, or the alcohol that you’re drinking? Are you worried about the welfare of a loved one or a friend? Why not call Ocean Recovery today on 01253 847553 or text HELP to 83222 for a free consultation about your drug and alcohol use?
We understand that making this call is a tough step to take and asking for help for a drug or alcohol addiction is something that invokes embarrassment and shame. However, many of our clients tell us they wish they would have picked up the phone sooner.
Many of our admissions team are themselves recovering addicts and they will be able to provide you with practical advice from the heart.
Please call us without delay – the longer an addiction is left untreated, the harder it is to overcome.
So, let’s get moving together so that you might lift the dark clouds that a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction leaves in your life.
Private addiction treatment
The first thing many of our clients ask about is the cost of addiction treatment. Private rehab isn’t the cheapest way you can be treated.
You can request help via the NHS, who will put you on a waiting list. But due to the harsh government cuts since 2010, waiting lists in Lewisham are at an all time high.
You will eventually be seen, but in that time your addiction will likely have worsened if not spiralled out of control.
Ocean Recovery can treat you immediately, and there’s no waiting list for our services. We are competitively, fairly priced and we will work with you to find suitable treatment that is within your budget.
Residential addiction treatment
There’s often a sharp intake of breath from our clients when we recommend a 28-day residential addiction treatment programme, but this kind of treatment is what has the best results when it comes to long term recovery.
We completely understand that this is a long time to be away from home, but the difference we can make to your life in that time is unimaginable. This contrasts with the alternative, as offered by the NHS, which is outpatient treatment.
With an outpatient experience, you would attend a drug and alcohol rehab clinic by day, but you would be discharged by night and at a weekend. This will be the time you are at your most vulnerable, especially early in the treatment.
If you are at home regularly, you may not be able to prevent yourself from succumbing to temptation, especially if you experience painful withdrawal symptoms.
However, with Ocean Recovery you are in a comfortable environment, away from an often-troubled home life and you can focus all your energy on your recovery.
Drug and alcohol facilities near me
When you arrive at our rehab centre in Lewisham, you will be examined thoroughly. We will assess you both physically and psychologically. The psychological aspect of your health is very important, because underlying mental health conditions are often the reason you’ve turned to drug or alcohol abuse in the first place.
We offer mental health treatments and support in addition to addiction treatment, so if we dual diagnose you with, for example, anxiety or depression, we will treat that too.
This dual diagnosis is essential for your long-term recovery as people who are only treated for an addiction are more likely to suffer from a relapse.
Drug and alcohol detoxification
Most of our clients need to undergo a period of detox. This is the toughest part of your treatment and you will likely experience a range of withdrawal symptoms as your body craves the substances that it has become dependent on.
However, our caring staff are on hand around the clock to ensure you are comfortable and safe. They can check your progress and if required issue you with prescription medication to ease the pain that withdrawal symptoms can bring.
This is not a pleasant experience but once completed (usually inside of two weeks) then you will be able to focus on the rest of your recovery journey.
Therapies in Lewisham
Your therapy sessions are an opportunity for you to get out what you put into your drug and alcohol rehabilitation. You’ll be able to partake in group sessions with your fellow recovering addicts.
It acts as a positive peer pressure and lifts you to immerse yourself further in your recovery when you are surrounded by people experiencing the same journey.
Your individual therapy sessions are also a chance to deep dive into the root cause of your addiction.
A brighter future
Before you come to leave our care, we will sit with you and devise a drug and alcohol aftercare programme. This is a vital part of drug and alcohol relapse prevention. A relapse is at its most likely to strike during the first year after your rehab.
But we will provide you with support groups and access to a 24-hour helpline for this first year and we will have given you the required tools and mindset to avoid suffering from a relapse.
You will leave our care a much more prepared and considerate person, ready for the challenges ahead.
