Drug and Alcohol Rehab Litherland

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Litherland

It can be a very scary thing to face an addiction alone, but unfortunately many people do. An addiction to drugs or alcohol can destroy your life, drastically increasing your risk of developing chronic and debilitating health issues or suffering an acute medical emergency. It can take a heavy toll on your mental health, leading to psychological issues such as anxiety or depression, or making pre-existing problems much worse.

Addiction can entirely rewire a sufferer’s brain, altering their behaviour in unpredictable and damaging ways. If you are suffering with a substance addiction, you might feel ashamed or guilty over your lack of control. You might feel isolated right now, but it is important to remember that addiction is not some sort of moral failing. It is a disease. It is considered to be a chronic, relapsing brain disorder.1 Once addiction has you in its grip, it is very difficult to break free. 

But recovery is not impossible. An addiction cannot be entirely cured – there will always be the possibility of relapse, and you will have to resist the urge to start drinking or taking drugs again for the rest of your life. But like other chronic conditions, addiction can be successfully managed.2 Addiction treatment at a residential rehab centre will enable you to overcome addiction’s disruptive and destructive impact on your brain, and give you back control over your body and your mind.  


Finding Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment in Litherland 

If you live in Litherland and are searching for addiction treatment, you should consider Ocean Recovery. We are based on the promenade at Blackpool, close to home. With beautiful views of the Irish Sea, fresh salt air and easy access to the beach, Ocean Recovery is the perfect place to regain your peace of mind. 


What Happens at Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab? 

The first stage of addiction treatment is drug and alcohol detox. Simply put, detox is the bit where we wait for your body to metabolise, process and remove the harmful chemicals that are affecting you.

Once your body has gotten the toxins out of your system, you will enter withdrawal. Withdrawal can manifest as both physical and psychological symptoms, ranging from mild aches and pains and bouts of increased anxiety, to seizures, tremors and hallucinations. It can be a deeply unpleasant, potentially even dangerous experience. Many sufferers who attempt to quit alone do so by going cold turkey, and soon relapse because it is so difficult to get through the pain of withdrawal. At rehab, in a dedicated detox clinic, you will have constant and immediate access to a highly trained team of medical and psychiatric professionals. With their support, guidance and care you will be in the very safest of hands as you get through this difficult first stage of your recovery.  

The second stage of addiction treatment is therapy. Substance dependency is a psychological issue as well as a physical one. If you want to reach a complete and lasting recovery, it is vital that we address the mental aspects of your addiction as well. We take a holistic approach to addiction treatment, building programmes of care that are tailored to the individual needs of our patients.

Through conventional psychological therapies such as CBT, creative therapies such as art therapy, and traditional counselling sessions offered on both an individual and group basis, we aim to find and address the root causes of your addiction as well as provide you with all of the self-understanding and discipline necessary to stay on the wagon and avoid a relapse once you have left the clinic.

Benefits of Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab 

The main advantage of private drug and alcohol rehab is that it is a safe environment. At rehab, the risk of suffering acute emergencies as a result of withdrawal is reduced practically to zero, as you will be monitored and cared for by a dedicated team of professionals at all times. Your access to drugs and alcohol will be strictly controlled, so you won’t be able to relapse in those crucial early days.  

Substance abuse, and subsequent substance dependency, is often triggered by severe stress. Most people who turn to drugs and alcohol and slip into addiction do so because they are using these substances as a coping mechanism. In our comfortable clinic by the sea, you will be far away from the people, places and situations that trigger your substance abuse.  


Can I Refer a Family Member or Friend? 

You may have come to this page seeking help not for yourself, but for a loved one. It can be horrible to watch someone you care for destroy their health and their life with substance abuse. The resultant changes to behaviour that addiction can bring can also be extremely damaging to the people surrounding the addict. If they have become more aggressive or violent as a result of their addiction, the situation could even become dangerous.  

We cannot force anybody into rehab, but we can help you to get your loved one to a place where they feel more comfortable with the idea of reaching out for professional treatment. Our referral team can offer advice on how you can best bring up the idea of rehab, and we can get the ball rolling early on opening up a place for them at the clinic.
