    What you gain by going to a private clinic

    There are huge benefits to be gained by going to a private clinic. This approach to treatment has the highest success rates in terms of people recovering throughout the UK.

    The following factors make all the difference to the chance of you having a positive outcome:

    1. The Environment

    The environment at the private clinic’s OK Rehab refers to is designed to be welcoming. It’s essential that residents are made to feel as relaxed as possible. From the decor to the atmosphere to the safety of the clinics, residents are looked after.

    2. The Staff

    There is a team of professionals who work together in order to ensure your recovery needs are identified and treated effectively. There are staff who focus on the physical aspect of detox, which is incredibly important in the initial stage of a rehab stay.

    Other staff support your psychological needs by providing evidence-based therapies. This is critical in order for deep healing to begin and last into your future.

    The next group of staff provides alternative therapies, leading you through nurturing and relaxing activities such as yoga, art therapy, and mindfulness. Finally, there are drug and alcohol workers who are available to support you emotionally and for any practical needs.

    3. The Service

    When people go to private clinics they have access to the best overall service approach. This means that on the whole, the service follows top-standard guidelines, policies and procedures in order to ensure your needs are met.

    4. The Treatments

    Private clinics offer the widest variety of addiction treatments. They’re the best available and are the most up-to-date in the addiction field. Staff access regular training and are kept up to date with current developments and incorporate this into their years of experience.

    Should you go to rehab in Guernsey?

    When people decide they need support to quit alcohol or drugs, they usually come to various crossroads. There are decisions to be made about the format of service you want to access, as well as what treatments to have, and, of course, where to go.

    Traditionally, people have imagined that “going to rehab” means finding a clinic hundreds of miles away from home and going to stay there for a month with only the opportunity to send letters to people back at home.

    While some people still choose to go to rehab far away from their local area as they prefer the space from usual haunts and faces, many opt to stay local. You can choose to go to rehab in the Guernsey area. The benefits of local treatment mean that you can also have close family and friends involved in your treatments.

    Many families really value family therapy as it’s a space where great healing takes place. Where relationships have become very strained and trust has been deeply shaken, this can be essential.

    Another massive benefit to going to a local rehab is that you also get access to outpatient services. This can be incredibly useful in supporting your long-term recovery goals.

    Maintaining regular contact with 12 Step groups or having the occasional courses of counselling can be a really excellent way to keep people on track when they’re feeling the addiction trying to pull them backwards.

    To find out more, call our team today on 0800 326 5559. We look forward to hearing from you.

    What happens on a rehabilitation programme?

    OK Rehab can advise you of all the treatment services available in your local area as well as those in other areas in the UK. The clinics we collaborate with have the highest standards.

    As such, you’ll receive certain treatments as standard, while others are offered according to what is suitable in order to treat your particular needs.

    Every person who has an addiction and is entering rehab needs to go through a detox and has to take part in psychological therapies. This is imperative.

    A detox is essential in order to cleanse the body of substances. This is the first move towards supporting the mind and body to rebalance.

    The chemicals in the brain, the hormones, and the vital organs undergo huge strains when you ingest substances. This comes with huge serious implications and this is why detox is vital.

    A detox for those who have dependencies will be slightly longer than for psychological addictions. The detox period lasts between seven to ten days for the majority of people but can be shorter in some cases depending on the substance and individual situation.

    Psychological therapies include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which is imperative in creating long-term change. This is where you learn how to identify unhealthy thoughts that cause addictive behaviours.

    CBT also offers methods you can use to regain control of substance misuse.

    Other treatments offered as part of a rehab programme include: mindfulness, yoga, reiki, art and music therapies, group therapies, and family therapies.
