    Overcoming Your Fears to Access Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Sudbury

    man with thumbs up

    There are many reasons why you might be afraid to speak out about addiction. It could be fear of the unknown, as we mentioned above. You might be afraid of judgment, you might feel embarrassed about your situation.

    Please be reassured that OK Rehab is an entirely judgement-free space, filled only with people who want to help you recover.

    Addiction is also nothing to be ashamed of and is more common than you might think. You’re not alone. And it’s a disorder like any other.

    One of the most important parts of the healing process is also making amends to people you might have hurt in the past. This is something that can be difficult to confront, but you’ll feel better once you’ve done it.

    Physical vs Psychological Addiction


    Many people don’t realise that there are two different categories of addiction: there’s the physical part and then there’s the psychological part. A majority of people suffering from addiction show symptoms of both, but it’s also important that we acknowledge the two sides equally.

    Psychological addiction mostly consists of mental cravings. These mental barriers can stop recovery in its tracks if they’re not dealt with. This is why mental health treatment is such a big part of addiction recovery, as we’re going to detail below.

    The physical symptoms that most often hinder recovery are withdrawal symptoms. These occur at a stage where dependency has developed. This then means that your body has become reliant on whatever you’re addicted to. As a side note, an early sign of dependency is increased tolerance, so that’s something to look out for.

    How Can Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Sudbury Help?


    In any context and any location, professionally supported drug and alcohol rehab is nearly always the best solution to addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab in Sudbury doesn’t provide you with a cure. Unfortunately, addiction is a lifelong condition. It’s too large and complex to ever fully eliminate once you’re suffering from it.

    The aim of drug and alcohol rehab in Sudbury is to give you the tools to fight those battles in the long term, so you can manage your addiction moving forward.

    The physical side of addiction, as mentioned earlier, is primarily dealt with via detoxes. If you do decide to go through with treatment, we’ll also help your mental recovery with various kinds of therapy and counselling.

    In a combination that’s specifically designed to suit your situation, we can help you work through everything happening in your head. Alongside this, many plans include physical treatments like yoga.

    Many of these offer health benefits and can also really help to lift your mood. This then helps other treatments like therapy and counselling to be more effective.

    What Kinds of Therapy and Counselling Will Be Available Through Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Sudbury?


    Now let’s look at some of the specific mental health treatments available through drug and alcohol rehab in Sudbury.

    One of the most significant is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, often shortened to CBT. This focuses on and aims to eliminate cognitive distortions, which are toxic thinking and behavioural patterns.

    An offshoot of cognitive behavioural therapy is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. This uses the same techniques but puts more attention on processing emotions.

    Overall, if you can learn to get out of your current mindset and gain the ability to process what you’re feeling in a better way, that will help your recovery moving forward.

    Speaking of processing your emotions, a lot of people find letting them out through art and music therapy to be very helpful. This is less emotionally taxing than digging through trauma and can also be relaxing.

    Support groups are a big part of a lot of recovery plans for a very good reason.

    They allow you to connect with people in similar circumstances and allow you to express all your inner feelings in a confidential space. On the “connecting with other people” part, we also have group therapy.

    Finally, there’s also:

    • Motivational interviewing, which encourages you to re-examine and possibly change your behaviour through a series of non-judgmental questions
    • Contingency management, which uses a reward system to encourage progress
    • Simple basic talking therapy, where you just sit down and talk through everything you’re feeling with a therapist
