Drug and alcohol services in Stockport
With so many options available in the Stockport area, it can be confusing knowing which treatment programmes will suit your needs most. There are two main types of rehabilitation services: outpatient and inpatient.
Outpatient services usually take place while a person remains living at home. This way a person is still able to carry on with their usual daily activities such as work, seeing to the kids or supporting loved ones. This type of treatment can be especially good for those with mild addictions. People are able to access therapy, counselling, and group sessions as and when it is possible to schedule in.
Inpatient services are what people generally refer to as rehab. This is when people go to stay at a comfortable clinic for a certain amount of time. It provides the opportunity for an immersive treatment experience where the most effective addiction treatments in the UK are offered.
Residential rehab programmes are excellent at treating and supporting those with mild to severe addictions and dependencies.
Both types of programmes are available in Stockport. There are many benefits of accessing local treatment.
The familiar environment can be very comforting during a time where people are struggling to make a huge lifestyle and behavioural change. The opportunity for family therapy sessions is easier to navigate in a local setting.
Finally, being able to quit a substance where the addiction developed creates a risk-preventative resilience in people to maintain sobriety.
OK Rehab will provide a referral to the most beneficial option for you.
What does a private rehab offer?
A private clinic offers you a comprehensive package of treatments. The whole person is accounted for and support is provided in all areas.
Using or abusing a substance takes from every aspect of a person’s life. It’s therefore critical that each part of a person’s life is given input.
Professionals recognise the synergistic process of the mind, body, and soul influencing each other. This is why the team have specialist areas and come together to develop the best-tailored programme for you. Many treatments also overlap in addressing issues in the mind, body, and soul.
1. Support for the mind
This comes in the form of psychological treatments. Therapists support residents to understand what has created the addiction and what is maintaining it. It’s also during these sessions, that very practical skills are provided to show patients how to face cravings and triggers.
When people learn how their thoughts influence emotions and behaviours, the awareness can be used to take back control. With the strategies provided in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, people are better equipped to face challenges in the future.
These are incredibly effective treatments so long as the person with the addiction is willing and determined to participate and practise any exercises learned.
2. Support for the body
Going to rehab is a time for looking after and nourishing the body. This means beginning with a detox. It’s important to rid the body of all the toxins that alcohol and drugs introduce to it.
At the start of a residential, patients undergo a detox. This, with the effects of withdrawal, can be a very difficult process. Symptoms of withdrawal include:
- Cramps and pain.
- Sickness and diarrhoea.
For those with physical dependencies, a medical detox is essential. This includes being monitored by an in-house doctor and clinical nurses. Medications are prescribed in order to wean the body off heroin and alcohol in a safe way. There are also medications available for psychological addictions if this is deemed appropriate.
As well as a detox, patients are provided with healthy and nourishing meals to support the body towards replenishment and healing.
3. Support for the soul
Each person’s definition of soul is individual. Holistic therapies are provided to give patients a well-rounded experience to recover more spiritual aspects of themselves. This part of rehabilitation is usually very relaxing and enjoyable for people.
Many rehabs provide yoga, reiki, massage, equine therapy, and acupuncture. This offers people a new way to experience their body and life.
There are also group sessions at rehab. These are often facilitated using a 12 Step approach. Many people enjoy the chance to share with others experiencing similar issues. It’s a safe and non-judgemental space where people can share openly. There are many ways this supports the individual.
4. Aftercare support
Towards the end of a stay at rehab, an aftercare programme will be created between the professionals and the patient. This gives steps on what to do once the person leaves the clinic.
There will be plans outlined around lifestyle changes. This usually involves developing new hobbies, interests, or developing skills.
It will include information on ongoing drug and alcohol support sessions. This is highly encouraged as a means to help prevent relapse and what to do in the event of relapse.
There will also be guidance on how to access support for other areas of life, such as career, housing, and finances.
