Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Merseyside

The Impact of Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Drug and alcohol addiction ruins lives. Get free from this illness at our rehab centre, located just a short drive from Merseyside in the North West.

According to recent figures, Merseyside has one of the highest rates of alcohol and drug addictions in England.

The Liverpool Echo states “there were 278 people taken to hospital in the city in 2014/15 with drug-related mental health or behavioural problems. This is equivalent to 58 people per 100,000 residents – the highest rate in England. There were also 228 people in Liverpool taken to hospital after suffering poisoning from illegal drugs in 2014/15”.

Many people die every year through substance abuse and overdoses and many more end up in hospital. Drug and alcohol abuse is a huge issue in Merseyside and many people lose their families, livelihood and friendships through alcohol and drug addiction.

Are you feeling hopeless due to your substance abuse? It is never too late to turn your life around and achieve long-term recovery from alcohol or drugs. Your addiction can be stopped if you seek treatment, which can ultimately mend your relationships and lifestyle after becoming clean at our private rehab centre.

Give our inpatient rehab centre a call on 01253 847 553 to see how we can help you get clean again. We are based in Blackpool, just an hour away from the centre of Liverpool.


How Do I Know if I Have a Drug or Alcohol Addiction?

Many drug and alcohol addicts often fail to realise that they are struggling with an addiction. It’s very common to see people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs be in denial about their condition and downplay the impact of their substance abuse.

Once you find yourself struggling to stop taking drugs or alcohol, or if your level of consumption is becoming an important aspect of your day-to-day life, it is very important that you start the process to start a treatment programme.

The first step toward recovery is admitting that you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol. This can either be by admitting this to yourself, to your loved ones or to us at our drug and alcohol rehab Merseyside.

Family Referral for Addiction Treatment

Do you suspect that someone in your personal circle could be addicted to drugs or alcohol? If you’ve noticed a change in their behaviour but you’re not able to encourage them to open up, there are a few indicators that could point to drug or alcohol addiction.

These include:

  • They’re engaging in increasingly risky behaviours which is unusual.
  • They’re experiencing financial trouble which could be a result of funding an expensive substance abuse habit.
  • They’re displaying isolating behaviours such as a lack of interest in socialising or participating in activities which they once enjoyed.
  • They have new friends or a new circle of people who encourage similar unhealthy habits making substance abuse appear normal.

Often, it is nearly impossible to tell if a person is suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs by simply looking at them. However, if you’re concerned about a close friend or family member, you may notice a significant change in their weight, a gaunt facial appearance, bloodshot eyes, or skin sores.

If you notice any of these behaviours in a loved one, it’s crucial that you’re there for them and encourage them to speak to you about what they’re going through. Whilst they may be reluctant to admit that they have an addiction to alcohol or drugs, they may just need you to listen.

If you feel as though they need urgent support, you can contact our rehab clinic in Merseyside and refer them to us through our family and friend referral service.

We can even arrange a family intervention if necessary, to help them recognise what devastating effects they’re having on their own life and on the lives of those around them.

How our Merseyside Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centre Works

At our rehab clinic, we have a fantastic team of therapists and addiction counsellors, many of whom have been through addiction themselves. This makes them the best people to provide your private treatment, as they understand the process and the hardships too.

At Ocean Recovery, we have the required expertise, necessary safety measures, and a tried and tested approach to treatment options which can help you overcome your addiction once and for all.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Detox

At our residential rehab we often start with a drug or alcohol detoxification which can take up to ten days to completely cleanse your body from the substance. To add to that, you will also need to recover from the withdrawal symptoms that are experienced during medical detox.

Withdrawal symptoms are very common during a drug and alcohol detox and can be managed safely with the correct guidance and expertise of our rehab team.

You may experience mild withdrawal symptoms of nausea, dizziness, and headaches, or you could suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, seizures or even delirium tremens for which you’ll need to receive treatment urgently.

We strongly advise against any attempt to detox at home without the supervision of a professional team. It’s vital that you detox in a safe environment with an excellent support group by your side, which is what we offer at our private rehab.

Our Therapy Treatment Options

After your detoxification, you’ll move on to your psychological therapies which could include cognitive behavioural therapy, relapse prevention, and individual, group or family counselling.

Some of our therapies we offer at rehab in Merseyside include:

  • Talking therapy such as CBT
  • Well being therapies
  • Individual therapy
  • Holistic therapies such as art therapy

We can address any concerning mental health issues and are also experienced in treating a dual diagnosis if necessary.

This is where a person suffers from both an addiction to alcohol or drugs and problems with their mental health. It’s very common so we can assure you there’s no need to feel embarrassed about coming to us with a dual diagnosis.

One of our specialists will be helping you find the reason for your drug or alcohol addictions, and how to help you make changes in your thinking in order to prevent a relapse.

We also include 1-year free aftercare treatment plan for anyone who successfully completes a 28-day rehab treatment programme. These take place as weekly sessions and are often crucial to support your ongoing treatment. Contact us today to find out more about our support groups and aftercare services.


Drug and Alcohol Addictions We Treat

We offer a wide variety of addiction treatments at our inpatient rehab for drug abuse and alcohol addiction.

Some of the substances that we offer inpatient treatment for include:

Private rehab is the best place to receive a recovery programme in. You will receive a medical detox in our detox clinic and experience state-of-the-art therapies which aim to treat both your mental and physical health. It is the best option to ensure that you receive a full recovery programme which can help you to achieve long-term recovery.

Outpatient Rehab vs Inpatient Rehab?

Although outpatient treatment is useful and works for some people, it often has long wait times and does not have the same long-term recovery rates that inpatient rehab achieves.

Inpatient treatment is extremely intensive and provides you with additional support that is not available in an outpatient setting. Sustaining recovery is a huge part of what you learn as part of your recovery journey here at Ocean Recovery, and we work hard to ensure that you are in a supportive environment which provides you with effective personalised treatment programmes.

You will not receive the same level of care and service at other rehab centres as you do here at Ocean Recovery.
