Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Harrogate
Are you struggling with an addiction? Are you considering a drug and alcohol rehab in Harrogate? We can help get you there.
The first few steps towards recovery from drugs or alcohol can sometimes be the hardest. Acknowledging you have an abuse problem or addiction, abstaining from substance use, dealing with withdrawal symptoms, trying to deal with the stress of daily life, the list goes on.
Seeking help during this time can add unnecessary pressure to an already fragile time, and the effort it takes can sometimes lessen the appeal of choosing rehab as a possible addiction treatment option.
But avoiding treatment for your addiction could cause damaging and long-lasting effects on your mind and body, and in severe cases could even result in death.
Let us here at OK Rehab take over the hard part of selecting a suitable rehab for you. We will get to work right away, assessing your needs and finding you the most appropriate rehab and addiction treatment, so you can focus on all the other challenging aspects of beginning the journey to recovery.
We can also offer any other support you may need during this time, so contact us today to see what we can do for you.
Is rehab right for me?
Many individuals suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction are unfortunately still in denial over the severity of their illness. There are also those that believe that their particular situation is normal, or does not warrant professional help.
If you are one of those people and are still questioning whether rehab – or any addiction treatment – is the right route for you, we suggest reading on.
Rehab can seem daunting, and we understand you may be feeling weary of the unknown, but rest assured that rehab is no place to fear. It is not always the perfect option for everyone, but rehab, and especially a residential rehab programme, is what we at OK Rehab will almost always recommend to those dealing with continued substance use.
Rehab offers many benefits, such as constant care and attention from an excellent team of medical staff and therapists, frequent progress monitoring and check-ins, detachment from a possible toxic home environment, and an array of addiction treatments, all under one roof. No other treatment programmes can offer all these benefits and more to people suffering from an addiction.
There is outpatient treatment, which involves only visiting the rehab clinic every so often to receive treatment, but residing at home for the majority of the time. This could be a viable option for some, however, it takes a very strong-willed, determined and independent person to be able to succeed in this type of environment, with very little professional help or observation. Many other factors also have to be considered for outpatient treatment to be recommended, such as the severity and length of addiction, and the substance(s) used. Only those with much less serious addictions have a possibility of succeeding with outpatient treatment.
There is also the possibility of at-home recovery, but this, much like outpatient treatment, is only ever suggested to a select few people. At home detoxes and treatment can be dangerous if they are not performed properly and with the right medical knowledge, and are not feasible options for the majority of our clients.
If you are uncertain about what route is right for you, please do not hesitate to give us a call today. We can discuss the possible options in further detail, and identify what would work for you.
What should I expect?
If you have decided on rehab for your addiction treatment, you may now be wondering what to expect from the admissions process and from your stay in rehab.
From the first call, we begin to assess you and your needs. We may discuss aspects of your addiction such as the severity and length, and the substances you have used. We will ask for some personal information too, but this all remains confidential and is only used to determine which drug and alcohol rehab will be suitable for you.
Once you arrive at the chosen rehab, whether in Harrogate or further afield, you will undergo a second assessment, performed by a doctor. This second evaluation will further gauge the state of your physical and psychological health and again helps us determine what types of treatment you will receive in our care.
You may undergo a drug and alcohol detox if you have not already had one. This involves flushing the toxins from any substances out of your bloodstream, leaving your body free of drink and drugs and ready to start healing.
At this time you may experience a number of withdrawal symptoms, which you will most likely be prescribed medication for. This is a normal and expected part of any detox from drugs and alcohol and will be safely monitored by our team.
Throughout your stay at the rehab facility, and depending on the initial assessments, you may participate in several therapy and counselling sessions. What you partake in is decided earlier in the process, but can be altered if you happen to respond negatively to any particular treatment.
These therapies and counselling sessions will allow you to work through your addiction, come to terms with it as an illness, learn new coping techniques, identify and discuss your personal triggers, and generally prepare for a better life.
When you eventually leave our care, you won’t be abandoned. You will receive a bespoke aftercare and treatment plan that will guide you through living back home without drugs or alcohol.
If you do need any further support or treatment, our team will just be one phone call to our 24/7 helpline away on 0800 326 5559.
