Each clinic has its own specialisms so by contacting us today we can help provide you with a rehab specifically tailored to your needs.
Do I need to go to rehab?
It can be tough to tell when your addiction is severe enough for rehab. It is also hard to admit to yourself and others that you are struggling with substance abuse.
Take a look at the questions below, they may help you decide if it is time to seek help.
- Are your relationships failing as a result of your addiction?
- Have you lied to friends and family about your substance use?
- Is your physical and mental health failing because of your addiction?
- Has addiction become your only priority?
- Can you not get through the day without using substances?
If you answered yes to the above questions, it might be time for to you reach out to us at OK Rehab. Choosing to get better can truly turn your life around. There are many clinics in Merseyside that can help you get the specialist treatment you need.
What types of programmes are on offer?
If you are struggling with a severe addiction, we can offer you treatment on an inpatient basis. This means that you will move into the treatment centre whilst recovering. This allows you to concentrate solely on getting better and removes all distractions and triggers that are associated with your problem. By becoming a resident at a local facility, you can take advantage of around the clock care and can rest assured knowing you are in safe hands with our medical staff.
If you have issues with substance abuse that are not categorised as severe you may be referred to outpatient treatment or treatments based within your community. By doing this you can still deal with your substance abuse issues but with minimal disruption to your life. This could be extremely beneficial if you have work or child-related responsibilities. Though it is important to remember that either type of treatment requires devotion and commitment to recovery and the ability to want to start a new chapter free from substance use.
Is private treatment worth it?
The NHS is an incredible asset to the UK and offers free services to its patients. However, its resources can be limited forcing many people to seek treatment privately. Residential placements in rehab clinics by the NHS are rare and this can cause people with severe addictions to not receive the immediate help they need resulting in unfortunate fatalities. Addiction is destructive and requires direct support, any delays can hinder your chances of recovery.
In contrast, private treatment centres are often able to admit clients on a same-day basis. In most cases, by giving us a call, we can help you find the best treatment centre for you in the Merseyside area on the same day or very soon after we first make contact. We don’t put patients on long waiting lists and can offer plans tailored to your individual needs. During our call, we can help discuss your needs and expectancies from treatment.
What about the cost?
Whilst the NHS offers free services, choosing to go private means you can choose the location and type of treatment centre you want to attend. A rehab offered at a very cheap price might seem promising but may not be beneficial to your needs. At OK Rehab we don’t believe rehab needs to be inaccessible in terms of cost so we are always willing to discuss how we can help make treatment as affordable as possible.
There are many ways you can pay for your treatment with some medical insurances offering cover for detox programmes or therapy. Many of the rehab centres we work with located in Merseyside also allow you to spread the cost of your treatment.
Do I have to stay in Merseyside?
Whilst many patients choose to stay in their local area this isn’t necessary. If you feel like you would benefit from attending rehab somewhere else in the UK, this can be arranged. By entering treatment in a different location, you can focus on recovery in a faraway area.
Patients who choose to stay in treatment in their local area can benefit greatly from the support of friends and family. Family therapy sessions can be crucial to some people’s addiction treatment, so this is something to perhaps consider if you are unsure where to attend.
If you are offered treatment on an outpatient basis it is important to remember you will have to travel to and from the treatment clinic to attend things like therapy sessions. If you would prefer not to attend in a specific town or city, we can also arrange this, so that you are still in the Merseyside area.
What treatments are offered?
If this is the first time you have sought help for your addiction you may be unfamiliar with the treatments on offer at rehab.
Typically rehab clinics offer detox programmes which are one of the most important steps in your recovery. This will be the first form of treatment offered so your body can eliminate any toxins in a safe and monitored environment.
Other treatments offered include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Meditation, yoga, reiki
- Educational workshops
We believe in the importance and combination of both medical and holistic forms of therapy. It is just as important to nurture the mind as well as the body when recovering from addiction. By attending rehab, you are showing your commitment to getting better physically and mentally. With the help of trained professionals, you can expect to recover quickly and safely so you can return to society a happier and healthier individual.
What type of addictions can OK Rehab help to treat?
At OK Rehab we offer a wide range of treatments for a wide range of addictions. We offer support for drug and alcohol abuse as well as behavioural addictions.
We can help treat addictions from cannabis to cocaine, heroin, alcohol, and prescription drugs as well as behavioural addictions such as love, sex, gaming, and gambling. OK Rehab can also help with mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us today to find out more about the support we provide.
Is recovery truly possible?
Recovery is possible no matter the severity of the dependence. If you are committed to getting better and accepting help, we can help see you into a brighter future free from the strains of drug abuse.
Working through physical and psychological dependencies can be achieved successfully by accessing high-level treatment options. OK Rehab can help provide you with successful options for lifelong recovery.
Rehab marks the first step in your addiction recovery, and this will need to be a lifelong commitment. Before and after treatment we can help put steps in place to reduce your consumption this ultimately helps both your body and mind.
Your addiction recovery must extend into a change in lifestyle choices too. It may be difficult but changing things such as the people you spend time with can help make a positive impact on your behaviour and actions. After treatment, you may still face cravings but with the tools learnt at rehab you can overcome this. During your time at rehab, we aim to help you see the value of staying sober and how this can change your life for the better.
What if I relapse?
Relapses do happen, and this is okay. We never want you to feel ashamed or guilty about relapsing and we are here to help. Sometimes a relapse can indicate that your needs have changed and therefore treatment needs to be adjusted accordingly.
During your time at treatment, your support workers will help you put plans into place in sessions called relapse prevention. These classes will equip you with the tools and skills needed in the event of a relapse. It is vital to remember that relapsing doesn’t mean the end of recovery. It takes practice to lead a life free from substance abuse but we urge you to contact us immediately if a relapse happens so you can enter treatment again.
Taking your treatment programme seriously lowers the chances of relapsing once you leave a rehab clinic. Relapsing, in some cases, can be fatal. If you suddenly give your body a large dose of the substance it has been learning to live without you could cause an overdose or permanent harm.
How can friends and family help?
It may feel like an incredibly hard task to make someone you know and love realise the seriousness of their addiction. You may feel like giving up, but treatment can work even when someone thinks they don’t need it.
By showing you care and are willing to support the affected individual you can help them realise that work needs to be done and that they can accept help from professionals.
If you are wondering what you can do to help a friend or a loved one take a look at the list below:
- Offer them transport to and from appointments and support groups
- Help them find a place to stay
- Avoid places where they may be influenced to abuse substances
- Listen to what they have to say
- Don’t force them to say things you want to hear
- Remind them to take any medication they may need
- Be mindful of their feelings and understanding if they relapse
What support is offered after treatment?
Your experiences after rehab are just as important as when you first enter rehab. To help you continue into a successful recovery you will be offered support both during and after completion of your chosen programme.
Your clinic in Merseyside will provide you with support in the form of group and family therapy so you can always access guidance. After treatment, we can offer therapy on an outpatient basis where you will attend sessions weekly whilst living at home.
We can also offer direction to local groups in Merseyside such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. If you don’t want to attend these groups close to home, we can find groups all around the county from Liverpool to Wirral.
