    How does treatment work in rehab?

    Treatment programmes in rehab are highly effective due to their evidence-based nature. They are also developed by some of the leading doctors and psychiatrists in their field meaning they have been tried and tested many times.

    Combining different forms of treatment to make a personalised plan for each client can help you reach recovery milestones.

    Treatment usually begins with a detoxification programme. This helps to safely allow the body to reduce its dependence on substances in a medically observed environment. From here, you will be able to begin a variety of therapies that can help to heal both your body and mind.

    Therapy such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and contingency management can safely allow you to work through difficult emotions tied to your addiction as well as develop healthy coping mechanisms. The skills you learn during your time at rehab can help pave the way for your future success.

    Holistic therapies such as arts and crafts therapy are also encouraged as well as physical activities that promote blood flow and positive chemicals to be released in the brain.

    By working closely with licensed staff, you can begin to change your outlook on substances and work hard at achieving your goals for sobriety.

    Completing treatment in a residential facility allows you to temporarily detach from the outside world meaning rehab can be a distraction-free place at all times.

    How can I tell my boss I am going to rehab?

    Telling your employer that you are going to rehab can be difficult, especially if they have no idea of the hardships you are facing.

    Here are our best steps to ease this process:

    • Be as open and honest as possible
    • Don’t put off having the conversation
    • Understand your rights as an employee
    • Try and complete any unfinished projects before you leave
    • Prepare answers to possible questions they may ask
    • Remember that you are accessing treatment for yourself, if your employer fails to understand, this is not your problem
    • Don’t disclose any information you are not comfortable with

    If you find the conversation doesn’t go as smoothly as planned it is important to understand your workplace rights. You can do this by speaking to Human Resources or a union representative. Alternatively, you can call our team and speak to someone who understands what you are going through.

    Our advisers will be more than happy to assist you during this time and answer any questions regarding telling your employer you are attending rehab.

    No one should make you feel bad about seeking professional treatment.

    How dangerous can substances really be?

    All substances from cocaine to alcohol can cause a variety of negative effects, especially when abused for a prolonged time.

    Through substance addiction, changes to your physical and psychological health can be experienced which require professional treatment to overcome.

    Though rehab aims to reverse some of the damage, it isn’t possible to reverse it all. Excessive use of drugs and alcohol can have long-lasting effects on your liver, kidneys, brain, and heart.

    The psychological effects of substance abuse mean that mental health disorders are more likely to occur in those with addictions that require a therapist to treat.

    Addiction can also cause a variety of negative effects on your social life. From broken-down relationships with loved ones to loss of money and your career, seeking help from a suitable rehab facility will always be in your best interest.
