Skelmersdale Treatment Centres
What happens in drug and alcohol rehab in Skelmersdale?
Many people feel anxious at the thought of going into rehab centres, but rest assured, we offer a warm welcome and a friendly environment. When you arrive at the Ocean Recovery Centre, you’ll undergo a full assessment of your mental and physical health, and we’ll ask lots of questions which will help us determine your best treatment options. Don’t worry, all our staff are very professional and non-judgemental, and we have dealt with all sorts of addictions over the years.
Undergoing one of our detox programmes is usually the first step, as we need to get all the substances out of your body. This can be extremely tough, as it’ll often involve going cold turkey, which can lead to withdrawal symptoms. But the advantage of residential rehab is that you’ll have options such as prescription medication if you’re experiencing problems. You also have help and support available around the clock, so it’s much more difficult to slip back into old patterns. Some people with addictions try to do a drug or alcohol detox at home, but find that they want to give up because the symptoms are so bad. You have a much better chance of success if you stay with us.
There’s no one way to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction, so our rehab programmes involve a lot of different therapies that complement each other. You’ll have plenty of time for individual therapy such as CBT, and we run a number of support groups where you can talk through your issues with those in a similar situation, with an experienced team member to guide the conversations. You can enjoy fitness sessions, holistic therapies and much more, as well as simply spending time relaxing in our luxurious surroundings. This ensures you go home feeling ready to take on any challenges, and you have a much smaller chance of a relapse.
Why should I choose residential drug and alcohol treatment?
While looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Skelmersdale, you may have come across providers offering home detoxes or outpatient rehab. For some people, these programmes can work well, and they’re often the first step that people take in curing an addiction. Unfortunately, not everyone finds them effective, so they may want to find rehab in a residential clinic. This is because it allows them to spend time in a safe, monitored environment, away from the stress of everyday life. If you are an outpatient, there’s always the temptation to drink or buy drugs once you’ve left the clinic for the day, and this is much harder to do in a supervised environment.
The Ocean Recovery Centre is set in Blackpool, so it’s just a 45-minute drive from Skelmersdale, which gives you some space from everyday life. It can be difficult to overcome drug addiction when you’re around social groups who use them, or you might be worried about the temptation to buy drugs from local dealers. That’s why it’s worth considering leaving your hometown for treatment, as it means you can undergo intensive therapy. However, we’re still in the North West, so you aren’t too far from loved ones or feel isolated.
What happens after rehab?
While you’re in rehab, we try to give you the tools you’ll need to keep up your recovery in the real world. We’ll ensure you’re informed about alcohol, drugs and their effects, and help you build coping strategies to avoid a relapse. However, it can be overwhelming once you leave drug and alcohol rehab in Skelmersdale, as you have to deal with the stresses of everyday life. That’s why we offer a year of free aftercare, which gives you the support network you need. This can be carried out at the centre, or we may put you in touch with local support groups who offer 12-step programmes. This can help you reach your initial goal of 90 days and beyond.
How do I get help today?
The Ocean Recovery Centre doesn’t require a referral, and there’s no waiting list, so you can get help today if you like. Many people worry about the costs of rehab when they start looking at rehabilitation clinics, but delaying treatment can also be costly because of the impact an addiction has on your life. When you call us, we’ll be happy to discuss your rehab options, and we offer treatment packages to suit different budgets. It can be difficult to find a drug and alcohol service locally without a waiting list, which is why so many people now opt to go private, and Ocean Recovery Centre offers one of the most comprehensive rehab services in the region.
