Why should I go to rehab?
Rehab is suitable for anyone who has an addiction that has caused their life to become unmanageable. The goal is not just to get you sober but to address the underlying issues that led to your substance abuse so that you decrease the likelihood of using again in the future.
With the help of top mental health professionals, you will be able to get dual diagnosis where applicable and deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD, schizophrenia, and other behavioural and psychological disorders. All of these conditions can make a person more likely to use drugs or alcohol, so you must get to know what your triggers are and learn coping techniques that you can use in the future.
There are a lot of misconceptions about rehab. Some people make the mistake of thinking that rehab is only for people whose addictions are extreme – for example, someone who is drinking multiple bottles of vodka per day. While it is certainly true that rehab can help these people, it is not the case that you need to be in extreme addiction to get value from going to rehab.
If your drinking or drug use has negatively impacted your life, even in a relatively minor way, it may be time to seriously consider rehab. Addiction almost always gets progressively worse if not treated, so the alternative to getting treatment early is to put it off until later, when the damage done may be much more severe. All things considered, it is best to address the issue as soon as possible.
How can OK Rehab help me?
Acting on your behalf, we can arrange addiction treatment at top-quality private rehab clinics anywhere in the UK, including here in Burntwood. We do this by first speaking with you on the phone about your addiction problems, and what you are looking to achieve from rehab.
Our only requirement from you is that you must acknowledge your addiction and commit to getting better. If you’re willing to do that, we can take the information you provide during your consultation and cross-reference it with our database of clinics to ensure that we pick out the right rehab for you. If you are happy to take our recommendation, we take care of the referral, and you can start your treatment within just a few days.
One of the other ways that we help people is by providing free advice over the phone. Usually, when people contact us about potentially going to rehab, they have a lot of questions they want to ask, which is perfectly understandable.
We can answer these questions, however specific, and address any concerns you might have. We can also guide how best to get help for someone you are concerned about. For example, we can give you detailed instructions on how to arrange a thoughtful and constructive intervention for that person.
Sometimes, it takes a step like this to get through to someone in addiction and get them to accept that they need help.
What treatments will I go through at rehab?
The vast majority of people who arrive at rehab are still in ‘active’ addiction, meaning that they are still using drugs and/or alcohol. If this is the case, the first thing for that person to do, after they have been checked in and assessed, is to go through detox.
Quite simply, this is the process of ridding the body of whatever drugs you have been abusing.
For alcoholics, this will probably involve the use of a medication called Librium, a sedative that is often used for this purpose. Some clinics also offer a ‘wet’ detox, which means that they reduce a patient’s alcohol intake gradually over several days. Heroin detox will likely involve the use of either Methadone or Subutex, which are medications designed specifically for easing heroin withdrawal.
Whatever drug you are detoxing from, at your OK Rehab-affiliated clinic, you will be under the care and guidance of medical professionals. They can help you to manage any discomfort and pain you experience from withdrawal, without affecting your recovery.
These symptoms can be severe with certain substances, especially with alcohol, opiates, or benzoxazepines, where seizures are quite common if the detox is not done properly. This is why you should never attempt to detox by yourself – it is extremely dangerous to do this. It might seem counterintuitive, but you don’t have to reduce your usual intake of drugs or alcohol before you arrive at rehab. You will be treated properly once you arrive at the clinic.
After you have got through rehab, you will move on to your therapy sessions. These sessions will be handled by mental health professionals on-site and will include both individual and group therapies. Your plan might include things like cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectal behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, counselling, motivation therapy, and others.
You will be able to share your issues with a trained professional, gain a better understanding of yourself, and pick up tools and techniques that will help you fight addiction effectively in the future.
Being part of a collective of recovering people will also allow you to share your problems through group therapy sessions. Although some people may be apprehensive about this style of therapy, it can be very beneficial for all involved. As well as allowing you to get things off your chest, these sessions also enable you to learn from the collective experiences of the others in the group and gain new perspectives on addiction and recovery. These sessions will also be overseen by a mental health professional to ensure that they are safe and constructive.
As you near the end of your rehab treatment, you will be encouraged to focus on the future – specifically, the near future, after you leave the clinic. It will be quite an adjustment going back into the world newly sober, just as it may have been quite daunting going into rehab, to begin with.
To help you approach this, the mental health team at the clinic will help you to put together a relapse prevention plan. This plan will take the coping techniques that you have learned at rehab and help you to put them into action. It will suggest positive, proactive steps that you can take, as well as places and people you might want to avoid to preserve your well-being.
Staying in recovery for the long term will take work and dedication – it does not just happen.
