Wolverhampton Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centres
There are many rehab options for addicts in the Wolverhampton 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 in the unfortunate circumstance where you need help with addiction, then you have come to the right place. Realising that you need to help yourself or someone else struggling is a great first step.
We hear from a lot of family members whose relatives are suffering from addiction and looking to see how they may help. Unfortunately, there isn’t an easy answer to that question, somebody can’t be forced into rehab, but with a strong support network and the right information at hand, they can start on the path to recovery.
We try to ensure that we have local treatment centres for anyone in need. If you think you or your loved one may need some treatment, or maybe just a telephone assessment to discuss some treatment options then just give us a call on 01253 847 553. We have a rehab clinic in Wolverhampton near you, easily accessible, and waiting to help.
How can addiction start?
Alcoholism and drug use aren’t the only problems that commonly exist, you might be surprised that addiction doesn’t just fall into the categories or drug or alcohol addiction. People can become addicted to many things. In this day and age, an obsession with online shopping can occur, this is where people get a buzz from buying something, then feel guilt and regret afterwards. Gambling is another addiction that can cause a whole range of problems.
Some people start drinking or drug addiction at an early age, whereas others may develop drug or alcohol addiction later on in life. No matter when the addiction starts, it’s important to remember that rehab clinics are always available, and even if you feel you can’t attend, a telephone assessment can be offered.
Alcohol addiction at a young age can sometimes be attributed to the person’s upbringing or even their social circle at the time. If a person has grown up in an environment where alcohol or drug abuse is constantly present, this can cause them to develop the same tendencies.
Aside from alcohol addiction, we also treat a lot of patients that are addicted to painkillers on prescriptions. It is an unfortunate fact that some of the best painkillers your GP can offer you also come with a hefty list of side effects, with addiction being one of them. Dependence on painkillers to keep pain at bay can occur when somebody is kept on an addictive medicine for a long period of time. This can make it extremely hard to stop taking and have massive withdrawal symptoms.
How addiction affects you and the people around you
Addiction can cause people to change so much that in a matter of months they may become unrecognisable. This change can be so rapid that drinking or drug addiction can break up families, destroy social circles and in the end, isolate people.
This can have a massive effect on the mental health of an addict. Without the support they need they are more likely to continue with the drinking or drug addiction until the substance misuse causes permanent damage.
We provide not only rehab clinics for alcoholism and drug use, but also provide support for families as their loved one goes through treatment. There is nothing harder than watching a loved one change before your eyes.
Addiction can also bleed into a person’s professional life. Side effects or withdrawal symptoms may start to become noticeable in the workplace and can land the person in trouble.
If the worst case scenario happens and the person loses their job, this will have a massive impact on their mental health. Also, without a stable income, the person will not be able to continue to fund the addiction. If this happens, and the addict suddenly has no access to drugs or alcohol, this can cause severe withdrawal symptoms.
How drug and alcohol rehab in Wolverhampton can help turn your life around
We offer a wide range of rehab clinics up and down the country, you won’t be far from your nearest clinic for drug and alcohol rehab in Wolverhampton. All our clinics are easily accessible via public transport but if you have any questions, or need directions, we can help you.
We make sure that all our patients feel as comfortable as possible during their stay. Our highly trained team includes staff ranging from support workers to medically trained professionals to support you during your stay.
We find that some of the best methods for addiction treatment are the use of therapy sessions. This helps us to get to the root of the problem of the addiction before we start to treat it. These therapy sessions can take the form of individual counselling or group therapy.
Individual therapy gives us time to tackle the drinking or drug addiction by delving into the past to identify what may or may not be a trigger. We find the group therapy sessions allow patients to form bonds with each other during their stay and to help them remember that they are not alone in this process.
Once you enter our facilities you will obviously no longer be able to access the drugs or alcohol you desire. Entering the detox process is one of the hardest parts of rehab. Your body will start to exhibit withdrawal symptoms and you may start to feel quite ill. Do not worry though, we have medically trained professionals at hand to get you through this stage and to offer any treatment or support you may need.
Once you have finished your rehab programme we will have provided you with all the tools you need to continue living a healthy life. We will supply you with aftercare treatment and will always be on hand if you need any further advice or feel like you are starting to relapse.
