Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Hyde
Whether you are only now beginning to notice signs of an addiction within yourself, you have been struggling with substances for years, or you have tried multiple times to quit already to no avail, we can help you.
We are OK Rehab, and we believe that no matter your circumstances, a full and long lasting recovery is possible.
With our help and support, you could soon be on the track to a substance-free life in a drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde. We can help you self-admit yourself into suitable treatment that matches your needs, and will be on hand for every step of your recovery journey.
We know what it’s like to be where you are now. The majority of our team are in recovery themselves now too, as they all have experienced their own addictions in the past. Because of this, we recognise just how difficult seeking treatment can be when you are overwhelmed with options, and how dealing with an addiction and daily life at the same time can make it almost impossible.
We don’t want anyone to miss out on life-saving, crucial addiction treatment due to this, so we strive to help anyone and everyone who needs it.
If you are here not for yourself but for a loved one who is dealing with an addiction, we can also offer a multitude of advice, support, or invaluable intervention services for you too.
For more information on what we can do for you or a loved one, call us now on 0800 326 5559, or fill in our online form to receive a call back.
The process of rehab
For those that are unaware of the processes and ongoings of rehabilitation, the prospect of moving your life to a rehab for a few weeks can be incredibly daunting. We understand this fear of the unknown, so we strive to educate our clients on what to expect in rehab before they enter, so they know what it is they are heading into.
After your initial enquiry, we will most likely perform a simple assessment of you. This will evaluate key aspects of your addiction such as the length of time you have been using for, the substance or multiple substances you have used, and the overall seriousness of your addiction. We may also discuss your character and personality, which can help us determine what forms of treatment would suit you best.
Through this assessment, we can begin to gain a clearer understanding of what your needs are, and what we can do to meet them. We will work to narrow down your options, and will recommend our final choices to you.
When you have decided on a drug and alcohol rehab in Hyde, or one further afield if you prefer, we help you through the process of admission and strive to get you placed as soon as possible.
When you arrive at your chosen rehab clinic, you will have a chance to meet the team and will likely be shown around where it is you’ll be staying for the next few weeks. It is at this time that you will also meet with a doctor, who will perform a second assessment to further gauge the state of your mental and physical health. This second evaluation is just another way that we narrow down your treatment options, and allows us to create a bespoke treatment plan for your time in rehab.
At this time, you will undergo a drug and alcohol detox. Though this is usually the step most clients are nervous about when entering rehab, it is also the most important, and is necessary to flush all the toxins from your bloodstream so that your body can begin the healing process.
During this detox phase, you will most likely experience a number of withdrawal symptoms. These can include nausea, headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, mood swings and shaking, but all are normal and expected during this fragile time for your body.
If needed, the doctor can prescribe you the appropriate medication to ease these symptoms until they subside.
For the remainder of your stay in rehab, the focus will be able to move from the physical side of addiction to the deeper psychological aspects. You will attend multiple therapy and counselling sessions, and will have to put in the work and effort required from you in order for them to reach their full potential and give the desired results.
Treatments to expect
The biggest reason why rehabilitation is so effective is because it works to treat not just the body with a physical detox, but the brain too with therapy and counselling.
Through these multiple forms of therapy, you can hope to achieve a full recovery. You will come to terms with your addiction, identify your personal triggers and learn how to avoid them back home, discover new coping techniques to replace the old ones and overall prepare for a life back in the outside world.
Because the treatment you receive is widely determined by the assessments we perform early on in the admissions process, we cannot at this time tell you exactly what treatments and therapy you will come across during your stay.
However, some of the main forms of therapy and treatment that you may encounter on your journey include:
1. Family therapy
This method of therapy brings families of the effected client together in rehab, to discuss not only how the addiction has also impacted them, but also how they can help and support the family member dealing with the addiction.
2. Individual and group therapy
Through group therapy, clients can openly discuss their addiction and what led them to rehab with others who have experienced similar situations. They can also hear stories from these other clients, and begin to feel much less alone. This therapy is great as it offers clients a support network of like-minded and understanding people.
Individual therapy, usually combined with group therapy in order for them both to give better results, is simple therapy in a one-on-one setting with a professional therapist. It is with this therapy that clients can discuss more personal or secret aspects of their addiction that they don’t wish to share in group.
3. Contingency management
This form of treatment is a way to reward clients for staying sober, by offering incentives like money or prizes when desired results are reached.
4. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a form of therapy that aims to fundamentally change the thinking patterns of the client. It includes teaching clients to recognise when their thinking or misunderstanding creates problems, and to re-evaluate themselves when they believe this is happening.
5. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
A form of CBT, DBT aims to teach the client four sets of invaluable behavioural skills; mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation. Through these skills, clients can learn ways to accept themselves, feel safe and manage their emotions properly.
6. Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET)
Though some people may be fully aware of the negative impact of their bad habits and use of drugs or alcohol, they find it very difficult to find the motivation to stop doing the things that harm them. Motivation Enhancement Therapy is a very personalised approach to this problem, that focuses on improving a clients motivation and willingness to change.
7. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is a form of psychotherapy that aims to not eliminate difficult feelings, but rather teach the client how to work through them with a host of acceptance and mindfulness strategies. It invites clients to open up about unpleasant feelings or situations, and work through them rather than avoid them.
