Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Leicester
At this point in time, it is fairly common knowledge that addiction is classed as a disease, yet there is still stigma attached to addiction recovery, with many people remaining under the disillusion that an addiction is something that you can ‘snap out of’. If you are living in the Leicester area and are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, there is no shame in seeking help to overcome your disease.
Independent drug and alcohol addiction recovery statistics are severely underwhelming and the chances of making a sustained recovery without some form of professional help or intervention are negligible. Here at OK Rehab, we know what you are going through. All of our addiction recovery advocates are in recovery themselves, so they know exactly how it feels to need help and guidance with their addiction recovery.
The good news is, there are renowned drug and alcohol addiction treatment centres in Leicester and the wide Leicestershire area, that can help. Our partner clinics are all closely governed by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) and provide a high standard of holistic addiction recovery programmes. To find out how we can help you to find your way to the right treatment programme, speak to us today on 0800 326 5559.
How can OK Rehab help you to find a suitable recovery programme?
It can be a daunting and overwhelming task to find an alcohol and drug addiction recovery programme that is suited to your needs. Much like your experience with substance addiction and your side effects will be personal to you, the treatment that you need to recover should also be matched to your own individual needs.
Private residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment programmes offer the absolute best opportunity for those struggling with an addiction to make a full and long-term recovery. They are, however, a significant investment of your time, money, and personal determination.
That’s why it’s important to ensure that you pick the programme that is right for you, and we are here to help you to do that.
At OK Rehab, we have a network of partnered drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinics across the UK. This means that wherever you choose to recover, we can find a high-quality treatment centre for you. We will even be able to begin the admissions process on your behalf once you are ready to do so. Contact us today with any questions that you may have about your addiction or how to find a treatment centre near you, on 0800 326 5559.
Our assessment process
Once you have established, with our help, if needed, that you do require professional medical help with your addiction problem, we will begin a short assessment to determine exactly which programme you would benefit from the most and where you would like to attend.
The assessment will involve questions about your substance use, such as the type, quantity, and regularity of use and how you are affected by side effects. We will also take into consideration your budget, any pre-existing conditions that you may be experiencing and where your geographical preference is.
We will also ask that you are committed to your own recovery, as this is an important factor in the success of your treatment.
Once we have got that information, we will be in a better position to recommend programmes and the centres that offer them. Many people choose to recover locally to their own home, and if you choose this option, we can recommend a reputable clinic in Leicester.
Recovering locally has the benefits of reducing travel for both yourself and family members that may wish to visit you, as well as attendance to aftercare services. Other clients prefer to travel further afield from their hometown, as it puts them at a physical distance from their daily triggers and usual environment.
Whichever option you choose, we can find a centre to suit you, with availability across Leicestershire, the East Midlands, and the wider UK.
Understanding addiction and why is occurs
An important part of the recovery process for drug and alcohol addiction is to understand why it happened. This can also be helpful in reducing any personal feelings of blame or guilt because you will come to realise that once you develop an addiction, the disease takes control of your previous personal attributes.
If you have, therefore tried, and failed to recover independently in the past, this is not down to personal failure, but because the addiction itself prevented this.
Residential rehab is often recommended to those who are experiencing moderate to severe addictions. This form of treatment offers a holistic approach to tackling addictions, so the therapy and mental health support aspects of your programme will include elements of learning how you became addicted to substances and what your triggers are so that they can be overcome.
What sort of treatment can I expect at a private residential clinic?
Our partnered treatment centres promote abstinence-based addiction treatment, as this is widely accepted as the most successful way to treat drug and alcohol addictions. Once you have been through the admission process, whereby all of your treatments will be explained to you, you will usually need to undergo medically assisted detox.
Whilst detox is not a pleasant process, it is essential to the success of your treatment, as successful holistic treatment programmes address both the physical and psychological aspects of your addiction.
Medically assisted detox is also the safest and most comfortable way to experience this process, as professionally trained medical staff will monitor you throughout, minimising your withdrawal symptoms wherever possible, through the use of medication.
Post-detox is the perfect time to focus on your psychological recovery, as you will be sober and better able to focus on the therapy sessions. These will be tailored to your individual needs, but may include any or all of the following:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
- One to one counselling
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Motivational therapy
- Alternative therapy and educational lectures
Residential rehabilitation centres are a comfortable and calming environment in which to recover. They offer private suite facilities for each guest, access to nature and exercise facilities, modern technology, and full catering, which takes dietary requirements into consideration.
You will have the opportunity to build friendships and a support network that lasts beyond your residential stay, and aftercare services are offered to all clients for up to eighteen months post-rehab.
The importance of immediate action
When you’ve taken the bold and life-changing decision to find suitable recovery treatment, it’s important that you act immediately. There are several reasons for this, but predominantly, it’s important for your safety that you do so.
Even if your addiction feels minor, or you are in the early stages of developing an addiction, it is a progressive disease, so the long it goes untreated, the more substantial its hold on your body and mind will become. As you know, there are a number of risks involved with addictive substance abuse, including permanent disability and fatality, and these risks increase with time, especially if your usage increases.
The other risk involved with not addressing a drug and/or alcohol addiction problem as soon as you’ve decided that you need help, is that the likelihood that you will change your mind increases over time. As the addiction takes more psychological control, it will be difficult to convince yourself that recovery is the right step.
This is why many people who end up on long waiting lists for treatment often back out, by the time that treatment becomes available to them.
With OK Rehab, there are no waiting lists. We do not even need a GP referral, you can speak to us today and we will begin the admissions process straight away, helping you to access the treatment that you need straight away.
There is no judgement here, as our call handlers all know first-hand, how it feels to be in your position. They are very well-placed to answer any questions or concerns that you may have, and all calls are free of charge and completely confidential.
There is also absolutely no obligation to use our referral services if you decide it is not right for you. If all you need is some helpful advice, contact us today on 0800 326 5559.
