Although it is possible to get off drugs without professional help, it is incredibly difficult to go it alone. This is particularly true if you have been using for a long time and have developed a dependency – in fact, it’s dangerous to stop suddenly without proper medical support.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab in the UK involves a wide variety of tried and tested techniques and treatments designed to help clients become drug-free. Most patients wanting to overcome an addiction are referred to a rehabilitation clinic in their area by their GP, but it can take a very long time before a statement becomes available. It is also possible to self-refer by contacting a local rehab centre yourself by going online and searching “rehab centre near me”. Sometimes, employers are willing to cover the cost of drug rehab through private medical insurance.
Our rehabilitation centre near Newcastle Upon Tyne is open all year round, 24 hours every day. Our committed, highly trained team of professionals are here to help you transition into a drug-free life.
To find out more about how we can support you in beating drug or alcohol addiction, contact our team in confidence today on 01253 847 553 – you can also complete the online contact form and we will get in touch with you.
How Can I Tell If I’m Living With An Addiction?
Addiction is an illness, not something you deserve or should feel ashamed of. You have not consciously chosen to become an addict – it is the people who make and sell drugs who are responsible by creating chemical formulations specifically designed to get people hooked.
These drugs affect your mind and body in many different ways. What might start out as a recreational or social activity can quickly become a dangerous addiction, as your body becomes increasingly dependent on drugs. It is common to feel extreme emotional and physical pain when attempting to stop taking drugs and this is how the cycle of addiction occurs.
When you become addicted to drugs, your mind plays tricks on you. It will reward you for taking drugs by giving you a “high” and punish you for abstaining by sending you into a deep and painful low.
How Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Work?
If you’re wondering what happens in rehab, it’s important to understand that the entire process will take your absolute commitment and determination. Without being properly committed to giving up drugs, your chances of quitting are practically impossible.
Your time with us at the clinic will begin with a 28-day drug or alcohol rehabilitation stay in our private clinic. This will involve a detox program that can last anything up to two weeks, depending on the level of your addiction. During this process you must completely abstain from the substance, as this is the only way your body can properly begin to recover.
This part of the process is usually the most difficult. You will need constant supervision from our team of professionals. To ease the pain of the Detox process, you may be offered prescription medication like Buprenorphine and Naltrexone.
This is just the start of your recovery. Once you have completed your 28 day stay with us, you can continue to use our support services for as long as you need them. Our team are here to help you make lasting changes in your behaviour and find new coping mechanisms instead of reaching for drugs/alcohol when times get tough.
Does Residential Rehab Actually Work?
Our success rates and statistics show that rehab is very successful as long as a patient is willing to commit to their recovery.
Typically, all residential rehab centres are good – in the twelve-month period leading up to March 2017 (minus people who were transferred) 25,833 people undertook drug addiction treatment. Of this, 15,394 dropped out because they found the program too challenging. Of the remaining 10,439 who went on to complete the course were declared to be completely free of dependence, and 9,116 of them no longer used any drugs at all.
How Long Are Drug Rehab Programmes?
As mentioned earlier, you will be required to attend our rehab clinic for 28 days. But that’s only the beginning, so you may also ask “how long does rehab last after the residential?”
Because our rehabilitation therapy is person-centred, the treatment you receive is tailored to your specific needs. It’s therefore impossible to say exactly how long your treatment is likely to last without speaking to you.
