    What Makes a Stay at Rehab So Beneficial?

    Without accessing drug and alcohol treatment services, the addiction will likely be a problem for longer. It could last a lifetime. Addiction is a serious disease and like all health issues needs to be treated.

    Doctors, clinical nurses, psychotherapists, and a team of support workers are essential to provide a structured and solid foundation for recovery.

    A team that covers all areas is essential. The impact of drugs and alcohol touches every aspect of a person and their life.

    It’s often an illness that is deep-rooted in the past, is ruining the present, and is severely concerning about the future.

    A team of professionals treat your illness as well as you. You are supported to heal. Trying to quit an addiction alone at home is usually unsuccessful for the following reasons:

    • Environmental and lifestyle triggers make people want to use the substance.
    • Withdrawal effects are uncomfortable to severely distressing, painful, and even dangerous at worst.
    • You haven’t learnt how to change your thinking or behaviours.

    Habits are near impossible to break without any changes. Learning to change requires input. The reasons that rehabilitation supports a person to stop using a substance successfully due to the following:

    • Being in a new setting without any drugs or alcohol means there aren’t any external triggers.
    • Staff can prescribe medications to manage the effects of withdrawal.
    • Therapists provide you with techniques so you can learn how to manage cravings and become more resilient.
    • Alternative therapies provide space to relax and develop new interests.
    • Learning about yourself and reflecting with the support of professionals can help to build confidence in your ability to heal.

    By calling OK Rehab, you have all areas covered. We can talk you through all the clinics. Our partnership working means that OK Rehab can secure you a placement with minimal waiting times.

    This means you can access rehab within days of a chat with us.

    During the phone call with OK Rehab, we run through a pre-assessment. Your answers allow us to understand what your life looks like and how you and the people around you are affected by the addiction.

    Often this will be a shorter form of one of the psychiatric assessments used at rehab, which can include:

    It’s also how we ascertain your recovery aims. With this information, we can then explain what rehab programme will suit you.

    When at rehab these tests will be employed by recovery specialists and psychiatrists to determine your exact care needs, helping them to create a person-centered care plan filled with all the physical and psychiatric treatments best suited to you.

    If you want this move towards recovery to be simple and easy, we can manage all of the arrangements leading up to your admission. This includes liaising with the clinic.

    We can also provide telephone support to you up to this point too, as for some this might be an overwhelming moment.

    What Makes Detox so Important in Rehabilitation Programmes?

    Drugs and alcohol have a very invasive and hard impact on the body. These are substances with a massive amount of toxins. When a person has toxins in their body over a long period, this will inevitably begin to have an effect.

    Substances damage the vital organs preventing them from being able to function normally. This is why there is such a large increase in the likelihood of chronic health issues and diseases if people keep taking drugs and drinking, as well as directly related issues like alcoholic hepatitis and Wernicke’s Encephalopathy.

    Mental health is severely implicated due to how unbalanced the systems that regulate mood are affected.

    A detox is essential because the body needs to recover. It needs to rebalance.

    When the brain chemicals, hormones, and vital organs are given a break from the substances and toxins and are supported to becoming naturally balanced again, then people think clearer and feel better. This is the necessary basis on which to build a recovery.

    Healing of the body and mind cannot occur in a body that is held captive to a substance that doesn’t serve it.

    However, it is worth noting that detox is only necessary in the case of addictions involving physical dependence, such as alcohol addiction, heroin addiction, other opioid use disorders and ketamine abuse.

    In the case of cocaine dependence, crack cocaine addiction, cannabis use disorder and of course behavioural addictions like gambling addiction, detox is not necessary.

    Is Detox Painful?

    A detox happens at the start of a stay at rehab. This is when people are going through withdrawal.

    Drug and alcohol detox isn’t painful, but people might experience uncomfortable sensations related to withdrawal.

    However, by staying in a rehab clinic, residents are supported by a team of clinical staff who prescribe medications that can ease these symptoms and make the process smoother, known as a medically-assisted detox.

    This will often include the use of benzodiazepines such as Librium (known medically as Chlordiazepoxide), or buprenorphine in the case of heroin withdrawal.

    These medications are used to effectively limit some of the most intense elements of drug and alcohol withdrawal syndrome, such as delirium tremens and seizures.

    Detox also involves supporting the mind and body towards feeling better. This is why nutrition is important and why healthy, balanced meals are provided.

    Depending on the substances, detoxes usually last between three to ten days. After this, the focus of rehabilitation turns to psychological and alternative therapies, as well as peer group sessions.
