Why opt for professional treatment?
If you have been planning on receiving treatment for an addiction, you have undoubtedly thought about the possibilities of at-home recovery, and have questioned the importance of professional and medical assistance.
We assure you that we do not recommend rehab to our clients for no reason. Rehab – particularly a residential rehab programme– is the best place for recovery from an addiction to taking place.
Residential rehab treatment means that you are detached from any possible triggers of your home environment, you receive constant care from an excellent team of therapists and medical staff, all your treatment takes place under the one roof, and you are given enough space and privacy in a judgement-free zone to work through your addiction with professionals, leaving you ready and prepared for life back home.
These factors are incredibly important. Withdrawing from your home environment can easily lead to a relapse if the emotional triggers or reasons as to why you turned to drugs or alcohol in the first place are at home as well – which they usually are. Most people suffering from addiction were led to drink and drugs because of regular aspects of day to day life; dysfunctional families, pressuring friends, a stressful job or lack of job, relationship disputes, etc.
Remaining in this environment surrounded by these triggers as you are trying to withdraw can be a huge drawback to your success, and it is usually only a matter of time before you reach for a substance again to be rid of these reasons.
Not to mention, when you do feel the need to use it again, being at home makes it easier to do so. If you do not have any loved ones to help support you during this fragile time, there isn’t much between you and the return to substance use.
Staying at home during an attempted recovery does not only give a higher chance of failure or relapse, but it can also be extremely dangerous. If home detoxes are undergone with no proper medical knowledge they can cause lasting damage to the body, or even be fatal to the individual suffering from an addiction.
In a rehab setting, you can rest assured that every treatment and detox will be carried out safely and by medical professionals. You will also be monitored continually so even if any rare side effects do occur, we can spot and deal with them right away.
For these reasons and many more, OK Rehab will almost always recommend a residential rehab programme to clients struggling with an addiction. No matter the severity of the addiction or substances the individual has used, rehab simply offers a greater amount of benefits and gives a higher chance of a long-term, successful recovery than other treatment options do.
Who is rehab for?
As mentioned above, rehab can be beneficial to anyone dealing with an addiction, regardless of the specific circumstances.
If you are only now discovering signs of addiction within yourself, or you have been aware of your condition for years, rehab can be for you, as long as you are committed to the journey towards recovery.
However, many people that are suffering from addiction are suffering in silence. Some individuals deny they have a problem with drugs or alcohol altogether or believe that their situation is not at the point where it warrants professional intervention. This mindset can be dangerous, as an addiction or abuse problem can worsen very quickly, even if you deem it to be under control.
If this sounds like you, and you remain unsure about whether rehab is the right option for you, we suggest asking yourself the following questions:
- Has your physical appearance changed drastically since your first use of the substance?
- Have you lost weight rapidly since then?
- Do you experience shakes, headaches, muscle pain or dizziness when you have withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time?
- Have you noticed your tolerance for the substance increases with each use?
- Are you avoiding responsibilities, social gatherings, parties, or work events because of the substance?
- Do you have a secret stash of the substance hidden away?
- Have you noticed any changes in your mental health, such as heightened anxiety or depression, especially when you have withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time?
- Are you more easily irritated, on-edge or angry than usual, especially when you have withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time?
- Have any loved ones expressed their dislike of you using the substance?
- Have you fallen out with any loved ones over your continuous use of the substance?
These are just a few signs and symptoms of a drug or alcohol addiction that can show up physically, emotionally and socially in your life. It is not an exhaustive list of symptoms and they are very broad questions, but if you answered yes to even just one, it is in your best interest to give us a call today.
We can discuss which signs you have noticed in yourself and help identify whether or not you are dealing with an addiction, and what your next steps should be.
The rehab process
We understand that there are many misconceptions surrounding drug and alcohol rehab, and what occurs there. We are here to put your mind at ease and reassure you that rehab is no place to fear.
The unknown can be scary, but we would like to change that. Below is a brief explanation of the general steps of a rehab admission and stay that you can expect to experience.
Of course, this will not be the exact process in every rehabilitation centre, and parts of your journey to recovery will differ depending on which method of treatment you choose, such as residential or outpatient treatment. If you do have any further questions on rehab and wish to know what a rehab stay might look like for you, get in contact with us today.
Your journey to recovery with OK Rehab will start on a free of charge phone call, where we will perform an initial assessment of you and your addiction. During this call we may discuss your personal life, general information, aspects of your addiction such as the severity and length, and the substance/substances you have used.
This information remains completely confidential and only goes towards helping us ascertain which treatment options and rehab facilities will be the best for you.
Through our services, you will be referred to your rehab of choice, whether that be a drug and alcohol rehab in North Wales or one further afield.
When you arrive you will be welcomed by the team and shown around the facility. It is at this time where you will meet with a doctor who will perform secondary assessment of you. This second assessment helps us to evaluate in more detail the state of your psychological and physical health. Again, this information is only used to further determine the treatment options that will be the most beneficial to you.
You will most likely undergo a drug and alcohol detox if you have not already at home. You will be prescribed appropriate medication for any withdrawal symptoms you may be experiencing at this time, and will be monitored closely to see how you respond to both the detox and medication.
Throughout your stay at rehab, you will partake in a number of holistic therapies and counselling sessions. Because we decide the treatment you receive based off of the data we gain from the two earlier assessments, we cannot at this time tell you exactly which methods of treatment you will experience.
When you leave the facility, it will not mean the end of your journey. You will receive a personalised aftercare plan, detailing everything you have learned from your time in rehab, and all the necessary knowledge and encouragement you need to live your life back home, free from drugs and alcohol. Our 24/7 helpline will be just a phone call away if you do however require further support.
The cost of rehab
Seeking help for an addiction is hard enough without having to also worry about the price tag attached to each treatment option.
We understand that not everyone will have huge amounts of funds waiting to be spent on rehab and that budgets will differ from client to client. When discussing your options for treatment and rehabilitation, we will factor in any budgetary obstacles you may have in your way.
We do not want anyone to miss out on crucial addiction treatment, so no matter your circumstances, contact us today to see what we can do for you. Your financial situation, just like the information gained during your assessments, remains 100% private and confidential.
The length of rehab
No individual’s journey to recovery from addiction will be the same. Each person’s time in rehab will differ greatly, from where they attend rehab to what treatments and therapies they experience throughout.
This also goes for the length of time spent in rehab. Some clients will by chance need much less time in a rehab facility. This is not indicative of an instant cure nor is it permission to be laxer with aftercare, but rather that the individual may have used a lower class substance, or their addiction was not as severe, to begin with when compared to others.
Similarly, some people in rehab will need to stay longer than expected. There is no shame if this is the case for you, and it does not mean that a recovery is not possible.
The average amount of time spent in rehab is around 28 days. This is the minimum amount of time we suggest using when letting workplaces, friends or family know where you will be. We recommend explaining that this time is not set in stone, and could increase.
Help for a loved one
If you are here not for yourself but for a loved one you are concerned about, we are also able to help. You do not have to be the one with an addiction to contact us, we are still here to offer any advice and information you may need during this tough time.
We understand that dealing with someone suffering from an addiction can lead to feelings of hopelessness and desperation, but you are not alone in this fight. As well as general support, we also offer professional intervention services that you can take advantage of to ease some of the pressure of coping with a loved one’s addiction.
