Every year, thousands of individuals across the country will opt for risky, at-home treatments for their addiction. Sadly, this can lead to many complications, early relapses, and in some severe cases, even deaths.
Here at OK Rehab, we know that the most effective treatment for a substance or behavioural addiction is through a professional residential rehab programme, and with our help, you could soon be placed on one in a drug and alcohol rehab in Wallasey.
We understand that for many reasons, rehab goes unmentioned in a lot of individual’s conversations about addiction treatment. These reasons often include the expected high cost of rehab, the need to feel in control of treatment, the fear of the unknown, the daunting process of searching for a suitable facility, and the want for the independence that can come with at-home treatment options.
However, rehab is no place to be feared, and can provide you with just as much freedom as the more dangerous at-home options can – just without the many risks. Searching for an appropriate residential rehab programme doesn’t have to be difficult or confusing either, and with OK Rehab the process of enquiring and getting placed in rehab is as simple and efficient as possible.
Our friendly admissions team can also take into account any financial or other concerns you may have and will work hard to tailor your treatment options to any personal requirements.

Treatments with OK Rehab
It is easy to assume that every drug and alcohol addiction can be ‘cured’ with the same treatment, but this is far from the truth.
Every substance or behavioural addiction is wildly different, and so too is every person struggling with one, which is why treatments also have to differ in order to be effective.
This is why here at OK Rehab we work hard to create bespoke treatment plans for each of our clients. This personalised approach to treatment not only ensures that clients are placed in a suitable facility – whether that be a drug and alcohol rehab in Wallasey or one further afield – but also makes sure that they only receive treatment that is proven to be most beneficial for them.
This means our clients don’t have to experience every type of treatment in order to see what works for them and what doesn’t, they can simply only participate in treatments that are suited to them.
To help us match client’s needs with their perfect treatment, we first need to perform a few quick and easy assessments.
The first of these assessments usually takes place over the phone during the beginning of your enquiry and admissions process with us, and will focus mainly on you and your addiction. We may need information on the length of time you have been using for, the method of your use (snorting, smoking, injecting, etc.), the substance – or multiple substances – that you have used or are still using, and whether or not you have a family history of addiction that may need to be taken into consideration.
This first simple evaluation will help us get to know you better as a client and will allow us to start piecing together your personal needs and requirements, meaning we can begin to understand how best to help you.
Rest assured that any data we receive from these assessments remains 100% confidential, and is only ever used to contribute to your treatment plan and recovery journey.
The second assessment will take place when you arrive at your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Wallasey and will be performed in person by a doctor. This secondary evaluation will look further at the finer details of your psychological and physical health, and will again aid us in the creation of your tailored treatment plan.
Once we have finalised your personal plan, and you have undergone a full drug and alcohol detox (if necessary), it will be time for you to embark on the rest of your recovery journey, and start the bulk of your addiction treatment – therapy.
Though we cannot at this time detail exactly which treatments you may encounter during your stay in rehab due to the details of such being decided by the two earlier assessments, we can list some of the most common and popular forms, which include: Contingency management, general addiction counselling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
It is likely that you will not just take part in one of these treatments, but rather many forms of therapy and counselling that will individually focus on different aspects of addiction treatment. These will combine in varying ways to ensure that you are receiving effective and efficient care for all faucets of your particular addiction.
Through therapy and counselling, you will have the chance to fully prepare for the new substance-free life that awaits you. You will learn more about yourself and your personal emotional triggers, identify the best ways to avoid them, discover new coping techniques to replace the old ones, and overall recover from the damage inflicted by substances, both mentally and physically.
The treatment doesn’t have to stop when you leave rehab and can continue long after you are settled back home if necessary. Further appointments can be made for you at a local outpatient clinic for check-ins, additional treatment or therapy, or even just to help us keep track of your progress.
You will also receive an aftercare plan that will detail everything you need to know about the adjustment period you will now be facing – and if you ever need us for anything else, we are only a phone call away.
You can also continue treatment yourself at home, by continuing to work on yourself using the lessons you will have learned in therapy and counselling sessions. You will have gained invaluable knowledge during your rehabilitation, and will now be able to put it to good use in the ‘real world’.
Things such as starting a new hobby, joining a club, getting more exercise, socialising more, and focusing on self-care are also great forms of treatment that are easy to do once you are home, which can positively impact your mental and physical health as well as your recovery.
