Why rehab works so well
Rehab is the most effective treatment for addiction because it deals thoroughly with the root causes of substance abuse, rather than just getting the person sober and hoping that they will stay that way. It provides a secure facility where a person can be assessed, go through detox, get help with their psychological issues, and prepare for a bright future without substance abuse.
All parts of your care plan are carefully coordinated to ensure that you get the most value out of the process. You will have on-site access to top clinicians who can help you every step of the way.
Basically, rehab combines all aspects of treatment under one roof, in a way that would likely not be possible to organise outside of rehab. This convenience, combined with the added stability provided by a safe, private location in which to recover, makes rehab a very attractive choice for anyone who is serious about putting the misery of substance abuse in their past.
How OK Rehab works
Our purpose as an organisation is simple – if you want to get into rehab, we can make that as easy as possible. It starts with a phone call to our team on 0800 326 5559 – from there, we can talk you through the process, and when you are ready, we can begin your telephone assessment.
This is nothing to worry about – you are not being put on the spot, we just want to ask some questions about your experience with substance abuse, in order to ensure that we get the right care for you. Once we have enough information to go on, we can consult our vast database of private rehab clinics to find a treatment location that is right for you.
Once we have suggested a clinic, and you are happy to proceed, we make a referral as straightforward as possible and can have you starting treatment within a day or two. As well as referral services, we also provide information on everything to do with addiction, for free.
Whether you want to ask about detox or need advice on arranging care for your dependents, we can provide expert detailed advice over the phone, or via email if you would prefer. We have been doing this for over 20 years now, and in that time we have helped thousands of people in the UK to get into recovery.
The phases of treatment at rehab
Residential rehab usually takes place over a period of about 28 days, which comprises a few different stages of treatment. Below, we have outlined each of them in chronological order, with some information on what to expect from each part.
Whether you have been abusing alcohol, heroin, ecstasy, or cannabis, it will be necessary to detox at rehab if you are still using. Staying at residential rehab allows you to go through this process under the supervision and guidance of professional clinicians, who work in this specialised field every day.
They will be able to help you get through any difficult withdrawal symptoms and manage your pain and discomfort in a healthy way. These symptoms can be particularly severe in the case of withdrawal from opiates, such as heroin, or long-term alcohol abuse.
It is very important that you do not try to detox by yourself, which is highly dangerous, and can result in seizures. Don’t feel as though you have to change your consumption habits before arriving at the clinic – just leave it to the professionals to assess once you arrive.
All in all, detox usually takes between 7 and 10 days to complete. From there, you can move on to the next part of treatment – your therapy schedule.
Substance abuse is, more often than not, accompanied by some kind of underlying psychological problems. It is also likely that these issues are undiagnosed and/or untreated.
It is so important to identify and address these issues so that they don’t have as much chance of driving you back into active addiction in the future. To help with this, at rehab, you will be under the care of a mental health team, who will put together a therapy and treatment plan that is tailored to you.
This might include things like psychotherapy, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, and group therapy sessions. As well as therapy, the plan will include educational classes on other mental health issues that are associated with addiction, such as stress management and identifying addiction triggers.
You will also take part in some complementary activities designed to boost your well-being, which might include yoga, tai chi, meditation, or gardening. These can be very helpful to your recovery, in terms of mindfulness and gentle exercise, both of which are great for mental health.
Through taking part in these activities, you may also find a new focus or hobby that you take into your new life once you leave. Although you may be unfamiliar with some, or even all, of the above activities, it’s important to keep in mind that they are designed to help you, in one way or another.
As the weeks go by, you will develop a much better understanding of addiction, and of yourself.
It is an outstanding achievement to get through rehab treatment, but it is also important to stay focused on what is to come once you leave the clinic. You will be heading back into the world with a completely new perspective and sense of self, which has the potential to be overwhelming.
People in recovery often describe this process as ‘doing everything again for the first time’. To help you prepare for this, the staff at the centre will assist you in drawing up a relapse prevention plan.
This plan will identify potentially dangerous activities or places, in terms of your recovery.
It will also suggest proactive steps that you can take to stay a few steps ahead of your addiction and for your general well-being. For example, they might suggest that you attend regular therapy sessions once you leave, either in AA/GA or individually.
They might also suggest that you end a friendship with a person if they are still in active addiction. Although reassessing your social circle can be a tough step to take, it is a necessary one.
In the same way that you wouldn’t go into a pub or bar once you’re in recovery, for obvious reasons, you shouldn’t be around people abusing alcohol or drugs. Sticking to your prevention plan will give you the best chance of staying well.
