    What is Included in the Physical Approach to Treatment?

    The physical approach to treatment focuses on physically removing toxins from the body. Each person who has used drugs and alcohol will have been affected physically, even if they’re not aware of this due to the damage occurring internally and it not always being visible.

    The substances and their associated toxins need to be eliminated. The initial phase of a stay at rehab includes a detox. Residents are looked after by a doctor and clinical staff to make sure this is done safely.

    Where necessary, medications (such as Librium and Subutex) can be prescribed to manage withdrawal symptoms. For those who have psychological addictions, there might be medications administered to help manage these symptoms too.

    Staff recognise and address how uncomfortable physical withdrawal can be as well as how distressing the psychological symptoms are too. At their worst, psychological symptoms can include hallucinations and psychosis.

    What is the Psychological Approach to Treatment at Private Clinics?

    After the detox, the staff support residents to enter the psychological aspects of treatment. This is where what happens in the brain and the mind becomes the focus.

    This is essential in treating addiction because of how a person’s thought processes and mental state affect behaviours.

    Humans are emotional and reactionary creatures. This is natural. Drinking and taking drugs tend to numb these reactions and cloud thoughts.

    Through evidence-based therapies (those proven to effectively treat addiction), people are supported to learn about how their addiction works and is controlling them.

    Therapists are trained to reveal techniques at the appropriate times that will empower a person to regain control of their mind and thereafter behaviour.

    What Does the Social Aspect of Recovery Mean?

    At the start of experimentation with drugs and alcohol, a person will likely have many friends around them. People often use and drink together. However, when an addiction develops, the person will have started to use the substance alone.

    Due to how the rippling effects of addiction take hold, many people will lose family and friendship connections. Alongside this is the way substances skew a person’s thoughts and feelings and can make them more closed off.

    Addiction is isolating. One of the most helpful factors in supporting a person to recover is the space in which healthy human connection is formed.  One with people who understand what is going on for you and who care about your recovery.

    This is why group sessions are really important both during a rehabilitation stay as well as into the future after leaving rehab. They provide a safe environment for sharing, connection, and support.
