Drug and Alcohol Rehab North West

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in the North West

If you find yourself struggling with an addiction, it can be difficult to find the right help and support. While the NHS does offer treatments for drug and alcohol addiction, these are often quite basic and require a long wait. Unfortunately, your life isn’t just on hold during this time, and it’s likely that without professional help, you’ll find your addiction worsen. That’s why, if you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in the North West, you should call the Ocean Recovery Centre. Based in Blackpool, we are one of the best rehab centres in the region, conveniently located for Liverpool, Manchester and many major cities.

It can be difficult to know whether rehab is the right option for you. That’s why we offer a free initial telephone assessment, so we can mutually decide whether this type of addiction treatment is suited to your circumstances.


Treatment Centres in the North West of England

If you live in the North West, there may be reasons why you want to stay close to home for treatment. You may want drug and alcohol rehab in the North West because you have family nearby and want to be able to have visits with your children, or you may be anxious about travelling long distances for treatment. Because the Ocean Recovery Centre is in Blackpool, there’s no need to go to a different area of the UK for treatment, which many people find reassuring.


Bespoke Addiction Treatment Programmes

Every addiction is different, from the length and type of substances you use to the reasons you became addicted in the first place. That’s why there’s no one treatment that’ll work for all addictions. This is why we tailor our treatment programmes to suit each patient who stays with us, so they have the best possible chance of success.

Our admissions process is quite thorough, and we’ll discuss your medical and mental health history. Some people who come to the Ocean Recovery Centre have a dual diagnosis of addiction alongside eating disorders, depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, so it’s important that we get a full picture of the kind of treatment you need.

Our team includes experienced and qualified addiction counsellors, nurses and support workers, all of who have worked with all sorts of addictions over the years. Many were once addicts themselves, so they’re completely non-judgemental and can deliver rehab treatment that works.


Why Choose Ocean Recovery Centre

The Ocean Recovery Centre is one of the best places to heal for those looking for drug and alcohol rehab in the North West. This is because it has a homely feel, set in a period home close to the Blackpool promenade. If you like the charm of seaside towns, you’ll enjoy staying in the area, and many of our rooms overlook the sea. There are plenty of chances for outings and activities, so you get a bit of a break while you recover.

The first step of drug and alcohol rehab is a detox, which means getting these substances out of your system. This is standard in most rehab clinics, and while it can be tough, it’s very satisfying to no longer have alcohol and drugs in your system. If you’ve been drinking or using drugs for a while, then detox can bring about side effects, so we can offer medication that eases withdrawal symptoms.

Once you start your rehab treatment, we offer a wide range of methods to help you stay away from drugs and alcohol for life. Therapy such as CBT is a big part of rehab, as are support groups, where you can connect with fellow patients. However, we also try to offer holistic treatments to complement traditional therapies, as this can help you heal both your mind and body. You can enjoy sessions of yoga and mindfulness or enjoy a massage or reiki. When combined with nutritious food and exercise, you’ll no doubt leave the centre feeling better than when you arrived.

Residential rehab is a big step, but if you’re serious about coming off alcohol or drugs, it’s often the best option. By committing a few weeks of your life, you can learn so much more about the causes and triggers of your addiction, as well as finding more productive things to do in your life. Outpatient care suits some people, but for others, there are just too many temptations and relapses, so a stay at the Ocean Recovery Centre may be the thing they need to get sober.


Life After Rehab

Generally, people stay in our treatment centre for 28-days, and while that’s enough to undergo intensive therapy, we understand that addiction can be something you’re fighting for life. That’s why we spend a lot of time teaching you relapse prevention techniques that you can use in the real world.

Everyone who completes their 28 days with us will also get a year of free aftercare. These regular support groups are a great way to stay in touch with fellow patients, as well as meeting others who have been through our programmes.

Many people with addictions find that 12-step programmes can be a good way to stay sober in the long term. We often recommend organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which run regular meetings in the community. If you feel that you may be starting to relapse, you can attend these free meetings and always have someone to talk to.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

Can substance abuse increase mental health issues?

Many people who abuse substances are often diagnosed with mental health issues, and people with mental health issues will often lean into an addiction to manage the symptoms. This is why dual-diagnosis is so effective for people who present with both mental health issues and addictions. As each can make the other worse it is imperative that both issues are treated at the same time.

What is the difference between a substance or behavioural addiction?

Substance abuse is where physical connections to drugs and alcohol are present. Easier to withdraw from, overcoming physical habits and cravings will be necessary through detoxification. A behavioural addiction is different through the presence of physical and psychological connections, requiring a comprehensive programme of treatment. Here’s where behaviours, emotions and outlooks have changed due to consumption.

Can I contact Ocean Recovery on behalf of a family member?

Yes, at Ocean Recovery we are here to support all parties. You can get in touch by activating a family and friend referral, sharing your concerns over drug and alcohol habits. Arrangements can then be made to voice your concerns appropriately, potentially requiring an intervention.
