Are you searching for a drug and alcohol rehab centre in the North East? Find out more about our local recovery facility. We will get you clean.
Whether you suffer from addiction yourself, or are concerned about a loved one, if you’re searching for drug and alcohol rehab in the North East, you no doubt want to find the best possible treatment. After all, there are lots of providers out there offering addiction treatment, and it can be difficult to know which ones can deliver what they promise. At the Ocean Recovery Centre, we offer world-class treatment in Blackpool, just a couple of hours’ drive away from many major areas of the North East of England. Our residential treatment programme is second to none, offering a mixture of traditional and holistic therapies that can keep you away from alcohol or drugs.
It can be difficult to get help in the North East, as it’s an area of the United Kingdom that has high levels of drug and alcohol related hospital admissions. This means that NHS care can be hard to come by, so all sorts of people turn to us for private rehab when they need help with addictions.
Reaching out for help
One of the toughest steps when dealing with alcohol or drug addiction is getting the person with the addiction to admit they need help. Many people who suffer from the disease of addiction are deeply in denial, and so they need to get help from people who understand their condition and what they’re going through.
At the Ocean Recovery Centre, we offer a friendly, non-judgemental service, and we’re easy to contact. All you have to do is pick up the phone and we can carry out our initial assessment, asking a bit about your drug and alcohol use and whether you’ve tried rehab before. We can then chat about whether this type of residential rehab is right for you, and if we both think it’s a good idea, we can arrange admission in less than 48 hours.
There are many advantages to staying sober versus continuing with your addiction. When you are sober you save money, improve your mental and physical health, and can build meaningful relationships. Overcoming an addiction can mean you have a new focus on work, can enjoy hobbies, or do things you’ve always wanted to do.
At times, we’re contacted by friends and family members who are worried about a loved one with an addiction. While their instinct may be to try and force them into a rehab centre, we offer advice on ways to gently encourage them in. A treatment programme is only really successful if someone is willing to go, so we offer services such as interventions to try and help the addict see the impact of their behaviour. Because our centre is in Blackpool, it’s close to home, so attending isn’t as scary a prospect.
Treatment that’s personalised
The problem with many NHS treatments is that they’re designed for many types of addiction and can’t really be tailored. After all, the NHS is under a great deal of strain, so can only really offer the basics. That’s why the Ocean Recovery Centre work hard to create bespoke treatment programmes that address your physical and mental health. When you arrive, you’ll be assessed by a consultant psychiatrist, so you’ll have time to discuss your addiction and what you want to achieve.
When you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in the North East, it’s worth considering residential rehab as it’s much more comprehensive that outpatient care. When you go through a detox at the Ocean Recovery Centre, you can have prescription medication to ease your withdrawal symptoms and you’ll be constantly monitored for your safety.
Most of our programmes are 28 days long, which means you can undergo intensive therapy in this time, which is often very effective when treating addictions. Staying with us means you also have more treatment options, and can undergo group therapy, holistic treatments, mindfulness and more during your stay. Trying many different treatments that complement each other is one of the best ways to ensure success during rehab.
Your treatment doesn’t end when you leave us. We put together an aftercare plan that aims to help you stay sober in the long term. You’ll go through workshops in relapse prevention during your stay, and if you complete 28 days with us, you’ll get 12 months of free aftercare. Attending these support groups can be great motivation to help you stay on track.
