Stevenage Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres

At Ocean Recovery Centre, we offer comprehensive drug and alcohol rehab at our Stevenage treatment centre. This is one of the many treatment centres we have throughout the United Kingdom, as well as in Ireland and Spain. We’re used to helping patients overcome all sorts of addiction. While the number of people suffering from addiction in the United Kingdom continues to rise, we’re now treating more and more patients and helping people get back to living their life in a healthy and balanced way.
If you’re a resident in the Stevenage or St Albans area and you’re currently battling the vicious circle of addiction alone, then our Ocean Recovery Centre can help. We have an experienced team of professionals that have seen it all before. Our advanced, adaptive treatment plans are unique to each patient: we make sure that your recovery is completely suited to your needs. Let’s take a closer look at how rehab can help and how you can start the journey to life without drug and alcohol diseases.
Why You Have to Admit There’s a Problem
Many addicts live in fear of rehab centres because they think that the first step of their recovery will involve a challenging detox process. This is an important and usually unavoidable part of any recovery, but it is neither the first nor the most difficult part of recovering from addiction.
Above anything else, those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions first need to admit that they have a problem. From the outside looking in this seems like a straightforward and simple part of the process. However, that belief could not be further from the truth.
When you’re suffering from addiction, your brain and the signals it sends to your body are working against you. Especially with drug and alcohol addictions, the chemical makeup of the brain can change significantly. The brain understands what makes it ‘feel good’ and recognises substances which release stress and relax it. If you’re suffering from addiction, your brain will actively encourage you to chase the substances which make you feel like that and will create some overpowering urges to consume more. Even when users are aware of the harm that substance abuse can cause, they can’t help but chase more of it.
Admitting that you have a problem is especially difficult because you will believe that you have everything under control. Family, friends and loved ones will urge you to seek help and face your demons, but you won’t listen. Instead, you’ll begin to hide your addiction and consume substances in private. These are all tell-tale symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction and make your recovery more difficult.
Once you’ve admitted that you have a problem, the healing process begins. Many people who have reached ‘rock bottom’ and admitted that they need help normally do so in an extremely fragile mental state. This is when you’re at their most vulnerable and you will often require careful and professional assistance. From this point on, you’ll be able to see the destruction that your addiction has caused to both you and your loved ones. You’ll be able to learn about what caused your addiction in the first place and focus on fixing any personal relationships which may have suffered as a result.
Why Rehab is the Answer
Once you’ve admitted that you have a problem, it’s important that you seek help with our drug and alcohol rehab in Stevenage. If you try to face your illness alone, it’s very likely that you’ll fall back into the same bad habits and begin the addiction process all over again. With our medical assistance and advanced care programmes, your chances of making a full recovery are significantly increased.
Once you contact our team you’ll have a telephone analysis, where we ask you to be completely honest with us in an entirely confidential setting. You’ll then have a more involved evaluation with an experienced therapist and take part in a full medical with our professional team. It’s important that we evaluate your body in case there are any signs that your addiction has caused physical harm.
After you’ve checked in to one of our treatment centres you’ll be given time to settle into your new surroundings. You’ll have all of the home comforts you need in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We have several years’ experience of addiction treatment and care, so we’ll know when you’re ready to face your detox.
When you do, you’ll undergo the detox phase under the care of our medical team. Particularly with alcohol addiction, a complex detox can have dangerous side effects: we’re with you to make sure that you have all of the medical assistance you need.
With all of the harmful substances out of your system, you’ll be able to begin the constructive process of learning about your addiction. Support groups make sure that you stay positive and group therapy will help you relate your own experiences to those of other patients. Workshops with former addicts and family therapy sessions are all likely to form important parts of your recovery.
Even as you start to appreciate how widespread addiction is, you’ll be healing with a unique and individual treatment plan, completely suited to you. At Ocean Recovery Centre, we understand that every single patient is different and your personalised treatment programme will be specifically designed for you.
