Can I recover locally in Selby?
In short, yes. This is also known as localised recovery and is encouraged for most clients. Localised recovery can ease the transition process into a residential facility and allow clients to maintain vital support networks whilst they are in treatment.
Localised recovery also depends on the severity of your addiction. If our team believe that staying in your local area would pose more of a threat to your recovery, you may be encouraged to seek treatment further afield.
All of this will be determined when you call our helpline. Confidentially, you can work with a team member and undergo your first assessment to determine the type of treatment you require.
Whilst local recovery offers convenience, suitability is far more important in terms of rehabilitation treatment programmes.
Why is it so hard to withdraw from drugs and alcohol?
For most people, withdrawal is a challenge. This is because tolerance has been built up in the body after prolonged substance abuse.
Ultimately, the body and brain undergo various effects after taking drugs or drinking alcohol, making you crave a much higher dosage the next time you consume.
If you have a very high tolerance, you will find yourself craving substances very frequently to satisfy cravings.
If you are unable to satisfy the physical and psychological cravings, withdrawal symptoms will present.
These are a very difficult part of ceasing consumption and often present as follows:
- Increased heart rate
- Tremors and shakes
By seeking private residential treatment, your withdrawal symptoms can be well-managed by specialised addiction staff. Attempting to withdraw at home, without medical supervision, can cause further complications to your body and mind.
During withdrawals, most clients would prefer to take more substances to ease what they are feeling. Whilst this can be tempting, enabling your addiction means that you are choosing to run away from sobriety.
It is down to these difficulties that we advise reaching out for professional help. By undergoing a detox programme in a suitable facility, you can take advantage of the levels of care offered to you at all times.
How long does rehab usually last?
Whilst most programmes last around 28 days, all of this depends on you and your addiction. Some clients partake in much shorter programmes and others in longer ones.
Because of this, we urge all clients to invest themselves fully in treatment. Hoping to attend rehab because it appears to offer a quick fix means that you are beginning treatment in the wrong mindset.
Your time in rehab ultimately depends on your responsiveness to treatment and the severity of your addiction. To begin your pre-admission assessment, call our team today for a more accurate estimate of the types of treatment we believe you would benefit from.
Can drug and alcohol rehab in Selby help me with my mental health?
Many clients not only seek help for their addictions but also their mental health. Addiction can aggravate existing mental health conditions and also cause them to surface. By seeking high-quality addiction treatment, you can rest assured that all aspects of your health are prioritised.
Treatment for addiction and mental health conditions is called dual diagnosis treatment. This means that you can experience treatment for your addiction and any mental health conditions simultaneously.
With years of experience, staff at your chosen clinic can begin to target all side effects you have experienced and work with you to develop healthy coping mechanisms and plans for post-rehab life.
Ignoring the support on offer for your mental health can aggravate the problems you are facing and cause you to relapse. It is because of this that we advocate for clients to access dual diagnosis treatment if they truly require it.
