Drug & Alcohol Rehab Jarrow

Find help and support for addiction via drug and alcohol rehab Jarrow

    When you live with a drug or alcohol dependency in many ways, you may feel like you are on your own.

    It is very easy to feel the need to hide away from your friends and family, so they don’t find out about your substance abuse. But this just isolates you from the people in your life who care about you and will want to get you help.

    We understand you must be feeling scared and alone right now.

    That the weight of the world and your drug or alcohol dependency is constantly pushing down on you. Everything may feel just too much, and even if you want to get help, you are not entirely sure where to start.

    First things first

    You must realise that the journey to long-term recovery is a difficult one. It requires a lot of work and even more dedication and determination from you. But we promise it is much more manageable than you realise. Mainly if you accept the help and support of others.

    We understand that there is a temptation to hide your drug or alcohol dependency from others in your life. It may feel easier to do this all alone so that you never need to admit you need help. But this is simply a process that cannot and should not even be attempted alone.

    This will be a very difficult time for you. The answer is to surround yourself with people who want to see you living a happier and healthier life that is free of drugs and alcohol. You need to let them in so they can help you. Many people do struggle with admitting they are living with a drug or alcohol dependency on the people in their lives.

    We promise you this is perfectly normal, and some even consider it as one of the first steps to accepting you need help and beginning your journey to long-term recovery. It is uncomfortable, but it is necessary. No one deserves to go through all this alone. That is why we are here.

    At OK Rehab, we act as that comforting presence that supports you every step of the way. We are here to help you understand the recovery process and to help you find the perfect drug and alcohol rehab centre for you. We will keep you safe and allow you to focus on the work you have to do, all without you ever having to leave the Jarrow area.

    Why do you need help?

    A drug or alcohol dependency is a very complicated medical issue that requires specialised care in a dedicated facility.  Drug and alcohol rehab staff are there to help you overcome your drug or alcohol dependency. They are medical professionals, just like dentists or any other type of doctor. You need to trust that they know what they are doing, and there is no shame in asking them for help.

    The detox is your body naturally ridding itself of all toxins, which happen to be drugs and alcohol. The big difference between this and what’s shown on the screen is that it is perfectly safe in a drug and alcohol rehab centre.

    The detox process tends to take around ten days, but this can vary slightly from person to person. During this time, you will be monitored by a fully trained member of the medical staff. They are there to keep you as safe and as comfortable as possible. The reason working through the detox alone is so dangerous is because of the withdrawal symptoms you will experience as part of it.

    You experience withdrawal symptoms because when you first start abusing a substance, you cause your brain to experience a rush of dopamine. As dopamine is the body’s feel-good chemical, your brain will crave the substance to produce more.

    However, over time your brain will get used to the dopamine levels small amounts of substance abuse can produce, and you won’t feel that good feeling anymore. So you would have to have more drugs or alcohol to achieve the same effects.


    Eventually, your brain begins to believe that it needs drugs or alcohol to produce any dopamine at all. So the cravings get worse. When these cravings are ignored, your brain begins to panic and reacts violently, resulting in withdrawal symptoms.

    These symptoms include:

    • Vomiting
    • Increased appetite
    • Chills
    • Hot flashes
    • Migraine
    • Muscle pain
    • Muscle cramps
    • Tremors
    • Nausea
    • Dehydration
    • Aggression
    • Insomnia
    • Depression
    • Paranoia
    • Irritability
    • Diarrhoea
    • Hallucinations
    • Seizures

    In the safety of a drug and alcohol rehab centre in the Jarrow area, you can be given medication to relieve these symptoms so you can complete the detox safely. Another big part of the recovery process is working on improving your mental health. Problems with a person’s mental health are one of the biggest reasons behind substance abuse in the first place.

    In a drug and alcohol rehab centre, you will be expected to attend regular group therapy sessions with others staying at the centre. Each session will be led by a fully qualified therapist who can help you understand what caused your drug or alcohol dependency to develop. You will also be taught what triggers your cravings and how to replace your substance abuse with a healthier coping mechanism.

    The journey to long-term recovery can not and should not be done alone. You have options available to you. However, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to find the help you need and not try and do this alone.
