Am I ready to go to rehab?
If you have been searching for information on drug or alcohol rehabilitation but had no luck then it’s not surprising. There is a huge range of options out there covering all facets of addiction, finding a solution that works for your circumstances can be hard.
Sometimes you may even think that you don’t need help, or that your addiction isn’t bad enough to ‘waste time’ at a rehab centre.
This is a very common train of thought. A lot of people struggling with addiction will often compare themselves to addicts that they see on the street or in movies – sometimes these individuals may be in a worse place than you are, but this should not stop you getting help.
Though recreational drug use or an alcohol binge every now and then may not be seen as a problem (depending on how you look at it), it can still have a huge effect on your body and social life. No matter what form your addiction takes, if you know you are struggling then please also know that it is treatable. By taking action and visiting a private rehab centre you will soon get your urges under control. By avoiding rehab you will be putting great strain on your life.
If you suffer from addiction to alcohol and drugs we can help. There is no need to risk your physical and mental health over something that can be treated easily. Once you have done the initial hard work you will be able to return to your home life sober and equipped with strategies to help relapse prevention.
What to expect during your stay in private rehab
Not all rehab experiences will be the same. The main aim of rehab is to help you become sober and with relapse prevention. Depending on the treatment centre, there will likely be a range of addiction treatments on offer. The most common of these is therapy. This aims to treat the underlying cause of addiction in order for patients to remain sober long term.
First of all, when going to rehab you will have to be clean of the substance abuse in order for the process to work. We start off this process by going through a detoxification stage. This process rids your body of any toxins that are leftover from the last time you used substances.
This will be hard on the body, after all, it is so used to a steady supply of drugs or alcohol that it won’t take kindly to being cut off. You will find that withdrawal symptoms may arise during this process which can be very uncomfortable. However, rehab centres have medical staff on hand to treat these withdrawal symptoms safely to make you as comfortable as possible.
Often, the next step of the process will be some form of therapy. This will be tailored to you and your specific problems but the main type is one-to-one therapy. Your addiction counsellor will delve into your past in order to try and pinpoint the root cause, or causes of your addiction. Once this has been found you can start to work through these problems, developing healthy thinking patterns along the way.
Without therapy, you will simply be treating the surface problems of addiction rather than the actual cause. If you didn’t do the therapy you might be able to remain sober for a while, but the likelihood of relapse is high. This is often found in cases of patients that have tried a self-detox in the past, as well as being dangerous, this method is often ineffective.
Another type of therapy on offer is group therapy. Most rehab centres offer these sessions due to their high success rates. Although these can be daunting for some patients at first, once they have settled in, hearing other people’s experiences is highly beneficial. This process helps patients realise that their problems aren’t unique and that if other people are recovering from them, why can’t they?
