We have treatment centres for Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Oxford
No one ever imagines they will end up searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Oxford. However, for whatever reason, you have found yourself on this page and are looking for addiction treatment in your local area.
If you think addiction could never happen to you, you wouldn’t be alone. No one thinks it will happen to them, and yet drug or alcohol addiction is incredibly common. It’s a huge problem within the UK and it’s something that people don’t talk about enough. That leaves those with problems hesitant to talk and open up, leading to them dealing with addiction in isolation.
At the Ocean Recovery Centre, we believe that addiction is important to discuss and open discussion is something that features heavily in our addiction treatment programmes.
Am I ready for addiction treatment?
If you’re still testing the waters around your addiction, you no doubt have plenty of questions. Am I really an alcoholic/drug addict? Do I really need professional help? Can’t I just quit?
These are the same questions everyone asks themselves before they undergo treatment. The truth is, it doesn’t matter whether you want to formally diagnose yourself as an alcoholic now. If you know you have a problem, so much so that you’re searching for help online, then you deserve help.
Even if you don’t fit into the stereotype of an addict, it doesn’t mean you don’t need or deserve help. Everyone who comes to us is at different stages in their addiction. All that matters is they have got the help they need. Don’t let it get worse to prove to yourself that you need help. All that does is rob you of precious time.
If drugs or alcohol has in any way affected your health, your relationships, your career, your friendships, financial situation or your ability to do everyday things, then you might have a problem that needs looking at.
The good news is that no matter what stage of your addiction you’re at, no matter how it has affected your life up until now, there is still an opportunity to turn your life around and get better. It’s not too late.
Can’t I just quit?
Everyone tries to quit on their own at some point. The truth is that it’s hard to do alone and when an inevitable relapse occurs, you’re left feeling like a failure or feeling like there’s no point in trying to quit.
Very few people can manage addiction on their own. In most cases, people will benefit from professional treatment and therapy. The best option for most is a residential treatment programme where you spend some time staying in a rehab clinic to get clean and start treatment.
What does a residential rehab programme look like?
The first thing you must do as part of a rehab programme is to start a detox. This is an essential part of any recovery journey and means ridding the body of all the harmful toxins it’s taken in.
Alcohol and drug detox can typically be an unpleasant experience as your body can experience withdrawal symptoms. We try to ease withdrawal symptoms wherever possible by gradually helping you come off the drug you’ve been taking. Stopping drugs or alcohol consumption suddenly can be extremely dangerous so it’s important that this process is supervised by medical professionals.
After you are fully clean, you will start to feel like your old self again. Next, it’s time for behavioural therapies. Typically, we use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as it can be used for a range of issues and has great success in helping you take control of your mind and behaviour.
We also introduce you to group therapy sessions where you’ll get a chance to speak openly about your struggles and experiences with others who are in a similar position to you. This can be incredibly helpful because you’ll realise you’re not alone. It can also prepare you for life outside the rehab clinic where you’ll want to interact with other sober people.
Once you have reached a turning point in your addiction treatment, it’s time for you to leave the residential treatment centre and explore treatment options outside of it. We encourage regular group therapy sessions which you’ll be able to find in your local community as well as ongoing behavioural therapies. We offer free aftercare to our patients, we will guide you through adjusting back into your daily life and give you tips on how to form positive habits for the future.
What will life look like after a rehab treatment programme?
This all depends on whether you give the rehab programme your full commitment or not. If you are dedicated to getting better and staying sober, our treatment programme has great success stories.
Rehab clinics are not just a way to get clean, it’s a way to safely explore your ability to handle internal struggles and external triggers in the outside world. We want to equip you with the tools to handle everything life throws you in the outside world.
Once you have control over your addiction, you will find you have better health, more time, more motivation, and the ability to develop or repair relationships more effectively. There is so much you could be missing out on because substance abuse has taken it from you.
