Why choose residential rehab?
One of the main advantages of residential rehab is that you are kept away from temptations during your first month of sobriety. Because it’s a therapeutic environment, we focus on clean living and enjoying life outside of drugs and alcohol. It’s tough to relapse when it’s so hard to access your substance of choice, and you’re also away from people who might tempt you to drink or use drugs. It’s a relief for many people to be away from negative influences and spend time focusing on their recovery.
When you undertake drug and alcohol rehab in Runcorn, we usually ask that you spend 28 days with us. This is because we offer tailored treatment and client-focused programmes designed to guide you through the first difficult month. Ocean Recovery Centre is a peaceful, calm environment that is the ideal place to go through treatment. There are private and en-suite rooms available, all of which are comfortable and homely, and there are world-class facilities to enjoy, like our luxury treatment rooms.
Blackpool is just over an hour from Runcorn, and we can arrange for transport to the centre if needed. This allows you to be still close to home, and family support can be helpful throughout the process.
What’s the rehab process like?
Starting your rehab journey with the Ocean Recovery Centre couldn’t be easier. You can call us using the number above, or fill in our online contact form, in which case we’ll assume that you are happy for us to get in touch. We’ll do an initial assessment over the phone, asking questions about your loved one’s drug or alcohol addiction. We offer a discreet, non-judgemental service, so you don’t need to feel ashamed or embarrassed about opening up to us.
On arrival, you’ll go through a complete assessment of your mental and physical health, and we can discuss many aspects of your addiction. Many rehab centres are only offering two treatment programmes and expect people to fit into one of them. Still, at the Ocean Recovery Centre, we are unique in offering a wide variety of both traditional and holistic therapies, which when combined, can keep you away from drugs and alcohol in the long term.
We believe that treatment and client choice go hand in hand, so it’s important that you get a say in your treatment plan, and that it’s something you’re happy to commit to.
What should you consider when choosing a rehab programme in Runcorn?
Many people have different preferences when looking for rehab; some prefer to go to a clinic that close and easily accessible while others do not mind travelling further afield if a higher quality of treatment and care is provided.
This is not the only factor that many people consider when choosing a rehab programme, to make sure you are getting treatment that suits all your needs; you must have a full list of questions ready to ask before committing to one rehab clinic.
Some of the questions we ask people to consider before admission includes:
- Does the clinic have enough experience treating your problem?
- Is the clinic approved by the Care Quality Commission?
- Can you afford rehab?
- If not, will your insurance providers be able to cover it?
- Would you prefer a local clinic or somewhere further afield?
- Can you commit to a programme that could last up to 28 days?
It would help if you weighed up all these questions, and you could even seek assistance from your GP before making your decision.
Primary and secondary treatment
When you start your initial search for drug and alcohol rehab in Runcorn, you probably aren’t thinking much beyond the next few days, but the Ocean Recovery Centre will ensure you have a plan for the long-term too.
The initial stage of rehab is almost always detox, and we offer fast detoxes that are delivered within the therapeutic framework developed by addiction experts. Because you’ll be in residential rehab, you can take prescription medication designed to help those going through a detox, and many people find this makes the process easier. You’ll also have therapy from day one, both individually and as a group, and you’ll be expected to go to all sessions. Many of the professionals who work for us are themselves in recovery, so they know exactly what you’re going through.
Both the primary and secondary programmes are delivered alongside a wide range of holistic therapies and other treatments, which aim to take care of both your mind and body, so you can feel better both inside and out.
Secondary treatment is sometimes known as aftercare. During the 12-months after you complete rehab, you’re most at risk of a relapse, which means it’s important to have a great support network in place. Depending on your situation, we may advise support groups or local organisations, or even further individual therapy if we feel you are struggling. Our aftercare team will put together a plan before you leave the centre so that you can feel confident about the future. If you follow our treatment programme and stay in aftercare, then you’ll have all the tools you need to stop drinking excessively or taking drugs, which can really change your life.
If you feel that it’s time to get off drugs or alcohol, all you need to do is give the Ocean Recovery Centre a call. Simply call 01253 847 553 or text HELP to 83222. By texting us or filling in your contact details on our site we will assume it’s OK to call you to discuss our services.
There are many ways family and friends can convince a loved one to seek addiction treatment. One of the most effective options is through the use of an intervention. An intervention would involve a member of our team speaking to concerned family members about the best steps to get their loved one to agree to enter rehab.
Our team can hold a meeting involving family members and the addict to discuss all concerns and advise whether rehab is needed. This is often the most effective way to get a family member to commit to rehab.
