Do I need to go to a rehab centre?
Many people who get in touch with our team at Step 1 Recovery simply aren’t sure whether it’s the right option for them. There are many misconceptions about alcoholism and drug addiction, for example, someone who has an addiction may not use these substances every day, and they may still hold down a job and have a family life. There are also many severity levels of addiction. So, what are the signs to look out for?
Cravings are a major sign of a drug or alcohol addiction. When you’ve not taken these substances for a while, you’ll start to feel physical withdrawal symptoms as well as possibly being anxious and moody. Another sign is that you’re using more and more of the substance to get the same high. Moderate use just doesn’t make you feel good anymore, so you’re taking drugs or drinking just to feel ‘normal’.
Those who have an addiction often undertake risky behaviour that they normally wouldn’t dream of doing. This can be because the drugs or alcohol have affected their mental health and made them more impulsive, or because they haven’t been able to use, so have turned to actions such as lying or stealing to get what they want. People with addictions are often deeply in denial about their problem, so it can be hard to get them to take a step back and admit they’re behaving poorly.
People who suffer from an addiction will often reach a rock bottom, which will be the point in which they decide to seek help such as drug and alcohol rehab. This can often be the breakdown of a relationship, job loss, or even legal trouble. But you don’t have to wait for things to go this far, you can get help today for drug or alcohol problems.
Will I need to detox?
When you’re looking for rehab in Spain or the UK, you’ll find clinics that claim they can cure your addiction without you needing to go cold turkey, promising to turn you into a moderate drinker or casual drug user. However, our years of experience have shown that the only real way to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction is to stay completely sober, as this will ensure you have a clear head and won’t spiral back into old habits.
You may have read stories about people going through detox and be scared of the idea of going cold turkey. However, by coming to Step 1 Recovery for drug and alcohol rehab in Spain, you can get 24/7 help and support on this part of your journey. We understand that during detox, your body goes through a sudden change which can affect your mind and body, so we can offer help such as prescription medication that helps ease you through this difficult time.
Detox can last as little as five days, and usually gets much easier the further you are in the process. When people go to alcohol or drug rehabs, they often describe detox as the most difficult part, but once it’s over you’re bound to feel much better.
Why go to Spain for residential rehab?
There are many rehab centres across the UK, so why is going to Spain becoming such a popular option? One of the main reasons is that Spain offers a pleasant backdrop in which to recover. Rehab should feel like a reward, not a punishment, and nothing beats spending time in a villa in the sunshine. The Spanish weather even has medicinal benefits, providing vitamin D to improve your mood.
Coming to a clinic is Spain is also a good way to get away from everyday life. Many people with addictions find that they are trapped in bad cycles of behaviour, or struggle with everyday stress which can worsen their condition. Therefore, spending some time away can give them much needed thinking time.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Spain from Step 1 Recovery has the same high standards as our clinics in the UK. If you’re undergoing therapy, CBT or group sessions, then these programmes are delivered in English, and there will usually be other British people at Spanish rehab clinics. Spain has an excellent reputation for its high standards of care in rehab, delivering traditional behavioural therapy, as well as holistic treatments.
Spain is a handy location for people from the UK, as there are so many flights between the two countries. Step 1 Recovery is close to Alicante airport, one of the country’s busiest hubs, so there are no shortage of planes landing from across the UK. This means that if relatives want to visit or even attend therapy sessions, then we’re just a short flight away.
