Staffordshire Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres
There are many rehab options for addicts in the Staffordshire area but not everyone can get the help that they need from the NHS and often they don’t have the time to wait for treatment. But fortunately, there are private residential treatment centres in almost every part of the UK.
If you are currently struggling with drug and alcohol addiction in Staffordshire then we may have a private rehab centre near you. We have drug addiction facilities throughout the United Kingdom. If you are looking for a centre in the North Staffordshire area, including Stoke on Trent, we are just a quick phone call away from finding you the closest one.
Addiction is one of the hardestthings to deal with in life. It can quickly take hold of you and cause both physical and mental irreparable damage. We mainly deal with patients suffering from drug addiction and alcohol addiction in our centres, but we offer a range of treatment programmes to suit all.
What does being addicted actually mean?
Addiction is the point where you cannot say no to a certain substance or vice. This can start as something as simple as a glass of wine at dinner all the way up to saving every last penny so you can get your next fix.
Being addicted to something can be a very tough issue to solve. This is why many people cannot solve their addiction without some kind of rehab. There is a lot of free advice available surrounding the subject but nothing tackles it best like a dedicated treatment centre.
If you are addicted to a substance you may start to notice changes in yourself far later than everybody else. People who surround you may slowly start to disappear as they find out the extent of your problem.This can isolate you and make the situation worse.
What are the side effects of addiction?
The problems addiction causes can be categorised in a number of ways. Here, we will take a quick look at the physical, social and mental side effects.
Firstly, the physical side effects are the most worrying issue to tackle. If you are suffering from alcohol addiction then you will be putting great strain on your liver as it struggles to keep up with the number of toxins entering your body. This is something you should have assessed by a doctor as soon as possible as liver damage can be irreparable.
Social effects side effects can often lead to even more side effects. One of the ways people get addicted to drugs is simply from being in the wrong circle of friends. We see many people enter our centres after starting off on a less harmful drug and then trying stronger and stronger ones.
When the addiction starts to bleed into your personal life, you may find that your support groups, social groups and even family members start to disappear. It’s sad to say, but there is an image that, being seen or associated with an addict is a bad thing. Here at Ocean Recovery, we treat all our patients with the respect they deserve. We find people who attended a rehab clinic feel relieved as they weren’t being judged.
Drug and alcohol addiction can also impact your mental health in many ways. If you start to become isolated due to social situations breaking down, then this will only further fuel problems. Some people use drugs and alcohol to cope with issues they currently have. This is where having dedicated addiction counsellors and free advice can help. In our rehab centres, we aim to tackle addiction by getting to the core issue of it. This can involve private rehab therapy to achieve this, but once we have got there you can start looking towards your brighter future.
Where do we come in?
At Ocean Recovery, we have set out to tackle addiction in the best way we know how. We are easily accessible via public transport for residents of the North Staffordshire area but if you require any further travel information don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Once you have been admitted to your inpatient treatment centre you can finally start your journey into tackling either your drug addiction or alcohol addiction. We offer both inpatient treatment as well as outpatient treatment to suit your needs.
Our rehab centres are custom built to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your stay. We like to tackle the negative stigma surrounding rehab centres that often liken them to prison.
We aim to stop addiction in patients as soon as possible but also set them up to remain sober for the rest of their lives.
What to expect during your stay in our centre for drug and alcohol rehab in Staffordshire
One of the first and most obvious things we do is to remove anything you can use as a ‘fix’ for your addiction. This starts the detox program. You will have no doubt seen people attempt detox in films and movies – usually with little success. This is because they are not surrounded by a team of medically trained staff that we offer. We watch over you every step of the way and make sure to keep on top of any withdrawal symptoms that occur during your addiction treatment.
Once this is complete, we offer a number of treatment programmes including individual therapy from our addiction counsellors. This helps us get to the core of the issue, if we don’t do that, all we will be doing is masking the symptoms. This is usually undertaken at the same time as group therapy sessions which allow you to meet other individuals such as yourself suffering from similar substance abuse.
Upon leaving our centre we can provide you with outpatient treatment if needed as well as aftercare treatment programmes to ensure that you not only leave sober but stay sober. We will always be just one phone call away if you are having any doubts or the urge to relapse.
I’m ready to start my journey to recovery
This is always the best news we can hear. Accepting that you have a problem that needs to be addressed is the first step in getting better. Without the will to do this and the perseverance to get through the program you will only go backwards.
