The area of Basingstoke and the surrounding areas are not immune from the clutches of drug addiction so if you are suffering, we urge you to reach out for help. You don’t have to struggle alone and there are many resources and options available for you to seek treatment today.
Addiction treatment in Basingstoke
During our lifetime many of us will know someone suffering from addiction. This is a saddening fact, so it is important to reach out or encourage a loved one who needs help, to ask for support.
Addiction can lead to overdosing which can cost you your life. Prolonged use of drugs and alcohol can also cause physical and psychological problems. By calling us today we can conduct a short assessment to determine the kind of treatment you require and the services we can provide.
By calling us on 0800 326 5559 you can speak to one of our friendly advisers who can talk you through your options for addiction treatment.
What is rehab?
The most effective form of addiction treatment is residential rehab which can allow you to recover without the triggers and distractions of the home environment. We work with local treatment centres that offer the best facilities and luxurious clinics in which to rehabilitate successfully. Rehab deals with all aspects of your addiction and can provide invaluable help to see you through into a life of sobriety.
Treatment plans are always tailored to the individual so we can offer you the best chance at beating your addiction and entering lifelong recovery. We have worked with many people battling addiction and know that if you put in the commitment you will see results. Please remember that rehab is never an easy choice or a quick fix.
It is incredibly tough to beat addiction alone, so we always urge you to seek professional help. Over the past few years, the NHS has lost much of its budget, according to a study in the British Medical Journal.
This means that public services are often incredibly underfunded and many people in need of help are placed on long waiting lists. Residential rehab services are very rarely offered on behalf of the NHS, so perhaps it is time to consider private treatment.
What can private treatment achieve?
It may feel daunting thinking about accessing treatment privately. You may feel apprehensive due to the commitment and the financial aspect of rehab. We want to reassure you that there are plenty of options available to fit your commitments and budget.
By calling us today we can talk you through all of your options for treatment and ensure you are happy with your choices before you continue.
Choosing private treatment often means you can bypass all waiting lists and receive a referral immediately. Some clinics in the Basingstoke area will even offer same-day admission meaning you can begin your recovery journey as soon as possible.
Private treatment also highlights the importance of choice. You can make your own decision around treatment, hospitals, and staff. This is not always the case with the NHS and can leave you receiving an unsuitable form of treatment.
In terms of the financial aspect of rehab, your medical insurance may cover some treatments and you could arrange payment plans too. Call an advisor today to discuss this further.
What treatments are on offer?
OK Rehab helps to treat a variety of addictions from substances to behavioural addictions. Some of the treatments we offer include:
- Alcohol rehab
- Prescription drug rehab
- Illegal drug rehab
- Rehab for sex addiction
- Rehab for gambling addiction
Many of the treatment options include detoxification programmes, as well as traditional and holistic therapies.
What kinds of therapies are available?
Therapy can be extremely beneficial in healing your mind after struggling with an addiction. This should never be overlooked, and various forms of therapy can help you make positive changes upon completion of treatment and a return to the home environment.
Therapy has been proven to be extremely effective in helping people overcome drug and alcohol addiction. It can also be very useful in helping you rebuild your life. Some of the therapies available at rehab include:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- One-to-one counselling
- Dialectical behavioural therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
We also value the importance of holistic therapy which helps you care for your mind and spirit. Some forms of this therapy include things like arts and crafts, writing, making music, mediation, yoga, and acupuncture. Most of these therapies allow you to focus on yourself and place value on being kind to your mind.
What is detoxing?
A detox programme involves removing toxic substances from the body. It also includes the aftereffects which are more commonly known as withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification can help with substance abuse issues.
Attempting to do this alone can result in disastrous effects and we very rarely recommend this option. If your addiction is severe it is imperative that you seek professional help for your problems. Detoxing is not a pleasant process, but it is a temporary one.
Though you may feel like leaving rehab during this time it usually only lasts one to two weeks depending on the severity of your addiction. If you are committed to seeing the change you must be able to complete detoxification before moving onto rehabilitation and therapies.
By detoxing in residential rehab, you have access to around the clock care and support from a team of medical professionals. They will also be able to prescribe medication to ease withdrawal symptoms if you ever need it.
24/7 supervision can be considered a very critical aspect of detoxification as it allows staff to monitor your health and wellbeing at all times during the programme.
What usually happens during residential rehab?
You may be unfamiliar with residential rehab and what it entails. You may also have misconceptions about it and think it is only for the rich and famous. This simply isn’t true. Rehab can be an amazing thing that offers you life-saving treatment during your darkest moments.
Rehabilitation is often thought of as a holistic programme that helps you deal with the various aspects that make up your addiction. It can help you physically overcome your dependence on substances as well as allowing you to explore the thoughts and feelings tied to your addiction.
Rehab offers modern forms of therapy including CBT, DBT, psychotherapy, 12-step work, and holistic therapy.
All sessions are led by licensed doctors and therapists and can be vital in allowing you to explore the root of your addiction as well as helping you put plans into place for when you finish treatment.
Before therapy can begin you will undertake a detox programme, under medical assistance as stated earlier. You will always have access to both physical and psychological help from a team of trained professionals whose main aim is to see you recover safely and successfully.
What happens during the telephone assessment?
This may be the first time you have openly spoken to someone about your addiction, so we understand if you have apprehensions. Opening up and admitting you have an addiction is the first step of recovery and can pave the way for your future success.
The telephone assessment you can access by calling us on 0800 326 5559 allows us to determine the most suitable and effective form of treatment for you. You will be talked through your options for treatment ranging from residential treatment to outpatient treatment.
We almost always encourage residential treatment due to its intensity compared to outpatient programmes. The more intense the programme is, the higher chance you have of recovering and staying sober.
Residential treatment means you move from your home to a clinic for about 28 days and can give you the mental encouragement you need to complete treatment and set recovery goals.
Making this decision means you are actively choosing to remove yourself from the home environment which may be filled with negative associations and triggers. At home, the temptation to use substances is usually the highest.
At OK Rehab we can refer you to a clinic that can provide you with the best forms of support and treatment. We take the hard work out of finding a treatment centre by doing it for you.
Not getting the treatment you require or attending a residential rehab that cannot provide the care you need can, unfortunately, result in relapsing and failure of treatment. This can limit you from reaching out for help in the future, so we urge you to contact us today. We have helped many people in the Basingstoke area combat their addictions, so let us help you.
