Knowing when to seek help for an addiction can be difficult. Many people hold the misconception that you have to hit rock bottom before you can experience addiction treatment, others believe that unless you are struggling with a severe addiction there is no need to reach out.
The reality is that you should seek help no matter the severity of your substance abuse. If left untreated, it will continue to worsen causing detrimental effects on your psychological and physical health.
If you have decided that now is the time to end your addiction and are seeking treatment in the Ferndown area, contact OK Rehab at 0800 326 5559. You can speak to a member of our team whenever you are ready, and we promise to always provide a confidential judgement-free space.
When should I seek help for my addiction?
By definition, addiction is something that you have no control over and that causes harm to your brain and body. Addiction can affect anyone from any walk of life and can change all aspects from your career to your relationships with family.
If you believe that you are struggling with an addiction, we urge you to reach out for professional advice and support. If a drug or alcohol addiction is left untreated it can spiral, causing your chances of recovery to decrease without professional help significantly.
As well as this, you will also probably find your relationships with everyone in your life to deteriorate causing you to feel isolated. Feeling alone can cause your mental health to worsen which is why we urge clients to reach out as soon as possible.
Addiction causes your physical and psychological well-being to decrease over a very short time and can have long-lasting effects, irreversible without professional support.
At OK Rehab, although we believe it is better to reach out as soon as you acknowledge your problem, it is never too late to begin treatment. If you are committed and invested in seeing a change in your life, rehab can be your best chance of recovery.
What happens at rehab?
Each client undergoes a personal journey when at rehab. This is one of the many reasons why we partner with clinics that provide a variety of therapy options. Whilst an important factor of private treatment is the level of personalisation, your rehab programme will follow a general structure.
This typically includes:
A detox programme
By carefully controlling the level of consumption in the body, staff will work with you to ensure you are no longer dependent on the substance you are addicted to.
After you have successfully overcome your physical addiction, you will be expected to complete a variety of therapies to help overcome the psychological effects. Addiction can both cause and drive underlying mental health conditions, which is why it is important to begin to understand the roots and triggers associated with your addiction.
Once your programme is complete, you will be able to take advantage of aftercare treatment. This includes receiving a relapse prevention plan and meeting with your clinic staff every week to monitor your progress in recovery.
The first twelve months of sobriety can be tricky, however, with a support network in place, you can continue to thrive upon your return home.
What forms of therapy are available at rehab in Ferndown?
Each treatment programme we recommend incorporates a variety of therapeutical techniques to help you in recovery.
The types of therapy on offer include:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – This form of therapy helps you to identify and subsequently change the way you think and behave.
- One-to-one therapy – Therapy focused on your needs can help you identify triggers associated with your addiction.
- Motivational sessions – These sessions involve your support staff working with you to help you feel more secure and positive about yourself and the new chapter you are about to embark on.
- Group therapy – Group therapy can help you work with a support network to share motivation and remain on the path to recovery.
- Holistic therapy is also employed in many rehab clinics as this can help you gain mental clarity and practice mindfulness.
At OK Rehab, we advise you to contact your specific clinic for more information regarding the types of therapy.
