Who is rehab for?
Contrary to beliefs popularised by stereotypes and extremes portrayed on screen and online, rehab can be for anyone who is dealing with an addiction, no matter the severity or the substance.
Many believe that only the most serious cases of addiction warrant professional help, and this is just untrue – and can cause more harm than good for the people that miss out on treatment because of this belief.
If you are experiencing signs of addiction, regardless of how long you may have been experiencing them, rehab could benefit you.
When should I go to rehab?
As mentioned above, as soon as you notice signs of addiction in your life, you should be seeking medical and professional help.
It does not matter if you have been aware of your condition for years, have tried multiple times to withdraw to no avail, or are only now seeing symptoms of addiction crop up, rehab can and should be an option for you.
However, it is always best to seek help as early as you can. An addiction, when left unchecked, can soon spiral out of control, and this can result in you falling deeper into drug or alcohol abuse, further damage being inflicted on your mind and body, and in extreme cases, even death.
If you are unsure about the signs and symptoms of addiction to look out for, some of the main ones to be wary of are listed below:
- You have noticed a drastic change in your appearance, such as an unexpected loss of weight
- You are experiencing an unusually irregular sleeping pattern
- Your tolerance for the substance you use increases with each use, resulting in you needing to up the dose each time in order to reach the same desired effect
- You experience withdrawal symptoms when you have not used the substance in a short period of time (these can include: nausea, headaches, muscle pain, dizziness, fatigue and mood swings)
- You have internal organ damage due to your use of the substance
- All you think about is the substance you use, and when the next time you use it will be
- You are more on-edge and easily agitated than usual
- You are experiencing heightened symptoms of new or existing mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety
- You are more withdrawn in your social and work life than usual
- You are avoiding responsibilities in your social or work life, and sometimes avoiding them to use the substance
- You are lying to loved ones over your use of the substance
- You have had disputes with your loved ones over your use of the substance
- You have a hidden stash of the substance which you keep secret
- You are avoiding social situations such as parties or big events
If you are experiencing all or a even just a small number of these signs, you may be dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction. We suggest seeking help with OK Rehab immediately and considering a drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe for treatment.
What happens in rehab?
It is understandable to fear the unknown, and for many, what goes on during rehabilitation for addiction is extremely unclear.
Rest assured that rehab is no place to fear, but rather a welcoming and judgement-free place where you are encouraged to work through your illness and come out the other end ready for a life in recovery.
When you first arrive in your chosen rehab, after the enquiry, admission and self-referral process is complete, you will most likely meet the team that will be looking after your for the next few weeks. You may be shown around the facility, and be given time to unpack and become familiar and comfortable in your new surroundings.
When you are more settled, you may undergo a simple assessment which will be performed by a doctor on site. This will help us and the team further determine what treatments will be most beneficial for you, by evaluating the state of your mental and physical health.
At this time, it will be necessary for you to experience a full drug and alcohol detox. Though this is usually the part of rehab that clients fear most, it is one of the most important steps towards recovery and helps your body to be able to start healing on a fresh slate.
During this detox, you may experience a number of withdrawal symptoms. These side effects of withdrawal are normal and expected, and the team at your rehab will be appropriately trained to deal with them. You may be prescribed medication to help ease the symptoms until they subside.
After this crucial detox phase, you will finally be ready to start focusing on the psychological aspects of your addiction and will be invited to partake in multiple forms of therapy to treat these factors. This will continue for the duration of your time in rehab.
What treatments will I receive?
What treatment you receive is largely decided by the assessments we perform early on in the admission process, and the evaluation of your mental and physical health you undergo at the beginning of your stay in rehab.
Because of this, we don’t know just yet what exact treatments you will personally experience during your time in rehab, but some of the main forms of therapy you may encounter include Art therapy, group and individual therapy, family therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
You may also partake in contingency management, a treatment that rewards the desired behaviour of clients with incentives like prizes and money.
You are likely to experience a number of these therapies and treatments, as they tend to give their best results when combined with others. This way they work together to treat the separate aspects of your addiction collectively.
Through these varying methods of therapy, you can hope to gain a clearer understanding of yourself and your addiction and what led you here, with the help and guidance of professional therapists and counsellors. You can also begin to identify your personal triggers of addiction, learn how to avoid them when you are back home, discover new coping techniques to replace the old and unhealthy ones, and can overall fully prepare for a substance-free life when you eventually leave rehab.
Remember that all treatment requires cooperation and an open mind from you, and no therapy or counselling can be beneficial without your hard work and willingness to succeed.
