Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres, Counselling, & Support

Find help and support for addiction in your local area

    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Watford

    Are you looking for rehab in the Watford area? Are you wanting to receive immediate treatment? Call OK Rehab today on 0800 326 5559 and let us help you step into a substance-free life.

    Every year in England over a million people seek treatment for issues with alcohol abuse. This can have severe effects not just on the individual but on the National Health Service who cannot keep up with the demand for substance abuse treatment.

    We specialise in private treatment meaning you can seek instant support for your addiction. Whilst the NHS offers incredible services, due to a very high demand this can mean you are waiting a long time for a referral. It is also very rare that NHS treatment will result in a place at a residential rehab facility.

    Make an important choice today and seek a better life.

    Can residential rehab help me?

    Residential rehab is one of the most beneficial ways to recover safely and successfully from drug or alcohol addiction.

    This means you will leave home and stay in a Watford-based clinic for the duration of your treatment, which is usually 28 days. Residential rehab allows you to remove yourself from any triggers and distractions that may be found at home and focus on healing instead.

    You can also benefit from around the clock care provided by trained medical staff who specialise in addiction treatment. This is hugely important when embarking on a detox programme. If you are suffering from painful withdrawals, staff can prescribe medication to ease the process and ensure your safety. At a rehab clinic, there is always help available.

    Perhaps you are wondering why we don’t advocate at-home detoxes for all clients? This is because if they are not managed correctly you could end up causing yourself serious harm. You would also lack important medical advice which could cause a fatal relapse or overdose.

    Detoxification is always best managed in a residential facility as staff can oversee all treatments and provide excellent aftercare services.

    What facilities are on offer in Watford?

    Many rehab clinics are located in rural areas, so you are free from distractions and busy city life. We encourage recovery outside of big cities, so you can focus on healing both your body and mind.

    Bedrooms range from single to dual occupancy and are finished to a high standard of decoration. Many clinics have access to large areas of land as well as Wi-Fi and computing facilities, so you can stay in touch with friends and loved ones.

    Many of the clinics on offer are also fitted with swimming pools, gym facilities, luxurious dining rooms and comfortable living spaces.

    What can OK Rehab do to help?

    We can help you find a rehab clinic in Watford best suited to your needs. All we ask is for you to phone us on 0800 326 5559 so you can begin on your road to recovery.

    During your first phone call with us, we will conduct a short assessment to find out more about your relationship with drugs and alcohol as well as your psychological wellbeing. We know this may be the first time you have openly admitted that you have a problem with drugs and alcohol, so we fully understand any anxieties you have.

    We promise to support you before and after treatment whether this is through emails or phone calls. We can offer tailored treatment programmes such as detoxification, rehabilitation, and outpatient treatment. Our team locate the best clinic for you, fulfilling any criteria you give us.

    What does the phone call assessment include?

    Our job is to find suitable treatment centres on your behalf, so you can focus on your journey into recovery without the stress of finding the right clinic. Our initial assessment can help us to determine what kind of support you need, and your cooperation can be greatly beneficial to us.

    Though this conversation may make you feel uncomfortable as you open up to us about your substance use, we need to make sure we can provide you with excellent treatment options at all times. We will never pressure you into making any decisions and every form of treatment will always require your approval.

    Our staff are trained to a high level and are very knowledgeable about addiction treatment and counselling. Some of them have even needed it themselves, so we will never make you feel like you are going through this tough time alone. Some members of staff have struggled with substance addiction in the past so understand what you are going through. They are living examples of the happy life you can lead once you decide to become sober and commit to recovery.

    What happens at rehab?

    If this is the first time you have sought out help for your addiction, you may feel slightly confused or unsure as to what rehab entails.

    There are many forms of treatment, but we work exclusively with evidence-based programmes, meaning your clinic will have provided many successful treatments for past clients. Treatments range from traditional forms of therapy such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy) to psychotherapy and holistic forms of healing.

    Upon your arrival at a residential clinic, you will be assessed by a practitioner who can gain an understanding of your physical and psychological state. This forms the basis of a detox programme if your addiction is severe.

    Detoxification programmes allow the body to heal and expel toxins left from substance use. Whilst this can cause a lot of unpleasantness, it is a very important first step in recovery. Medication will always be available if you are struggling with unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

    As the body adjusts to a new normal you will likely experience things such as nausea and insomnia. We know you don’t want to feel worse, but it is necessary to withdraw if you want to recover. It also means you are less likely to abuse substances in the future if you know the risks involved with withdrawing.

    Detoxing at home can result in relapses, so it is important you undertake this programme in a facility if your addiction is severe. Trained professionals will always be on hand and can offer 24/7 support.

    As well as physical symptoms of withdrawal, you will probably feel mental symptoms too. This is usually associated with feelings of depression and anxiety which you may already suffer from. At times of withdrawal mental illness can feel amplified, but we work very closely with psychiatrists and counsellors who can provide you with excellent forms of therapy and medication to heal your mind.

    Engaging in therapy and counselling can help you heal emotionally and allow you to dig deeper into the cause and triggers of your addiction. We encourage both group and one-to-one therapies so you can explore your feelings in private as well as with the support of your peers.

    We wholeheartedly support the abstinence model of rehabilitation which means we encourage clinics in Bradford to offer clients knowledge, tools and skills to remain sober when treatment has ended.

    What forms of holistic therapy are on offer?

    Holistic forms of therapy can be highly beneficial when recovering from substance abuse. The idea behind holistic wellbeing is the knowledge that human beings are more than just physical entities. Your mind and spirit are equally important to treat as the body and when entering recovery it is important not to neglect this.

    The benefits of holistic treatments are that they cannot be prescribed as a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Each form of therapy is curated around the individual and the issues they are facing.

    Holistic approaches focus on the body, the mind, and the spirit. Examples of therapy advocated include:

    • Music and art therapy
    • Equine and animal therapy
    • Massage therapy
    • Chiropody
    • Acupuncture

    These sessions complement traditional talking therapies and can help you feel a lot more relaxed during your time at rehab. They can also help give you a new perspective on life and allow you to feel joy and excitement at the thought of living a substance-free life.
