Going through addiction can be incredibly difficult and stressful without support. Finding the right help can seem daunting, and with the number of people struggling with addiction on the rise, it can be a long wait until you are able to receive help from your local health authority.
With OK Rehab, there is no wait and so treatment can begin right away.
Addiction can be treated much easier if it is treated earlier. Sometimes people carry on suffering for longer as they feel they can’t speak up about their problems.
This is largely down to the stigmatisation that has wrongly been associated with addiction, which causes sufferers to feel ashamed. Addiction affects hundreds of thousands of people, so you aren’t alone in what you are going through.
It affects people from all walks of life, from all backgrounds. Here at OK Rehab, you do not need to feel ashamed at all, as members of our amazing team really do know exactly how you are, as they are in recovery themselves.
Getting in touch with OK Rehab is just one free confidential phone call away, on 0800 326 5559, where our team is waiting to help.
Addiction and The Effects
Addiction can have a negative impact on your life, and the lives of those around you. It can cause relationships to break, as the loss of friendships and even in some instances, job loss resulting in financial strain.
This added stress will only cause an increase in consumption as you struggle to cope with the added stress. Addiction also affects health and can cause damage to the body and brain which is sometimes irreparable.
Trying to stop drinking or taking drugs without help can be risky. Sometimes people do try to stop themselves, which is dangerous because of the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms they experience from stopping abruptly.
After a short time without alcohol or drugs, it can get too much for people to cope with, and so consumption begins again, usually in greater volumes. This cycle is very difficult to break.
Getting Help in Ashford
Addiction can be treated easier the earlier you get the help you need. Considering professional help to do this is a good idea, as breaking free from addiction can be a challenge, and be difficult at times.
The most important thing about a detox is that you get the right help that you need.
OK Rehab has relaxing and luxurious centres in which you can go through your detox treatment in comfort and privacy. Going to a residential facility has the added benefit that you will be away from the distraction of your current situation and allow you to concentrate fully on your treatment.
Residential treatment plans also have a much higher success rate. Our centres have specially tailored plans that will help you in your recovery.
Our team will go through an assessment to find out your treatment needs, and let you know what options are available to you. Our team can give you all the information and answer any questions that you may have about the different types of treatment and allay any worries you may have.
What Happens in Residential Treatment in Ashford
When you arrive at the centre, our team will go through an assessment with you, to help us determine your treatment plan. Everyone’s addictions are different and so too are their treatments.
Once we have completed your assessments, we will begin your detox. A detox is to help cleanse the body of all the toxins that have built up over time and they need to be removed.
The detox can be unpleasant and uncomfortable and can be hard to cope with at times. Our medical team prescribes special medication to help with the detox process.
Addiction is psychological as well as physical which is why we need to treat both. Following the detox we will begin some therapy with you, to help you think differently and more positively.
As well as CBT, you will also take part in group therapy sessions. These sessions can help you with support and talking about your problems with other sufferers. Peer-to-peer support can be comforting for those going through addiction treatment.
Meditation, yoga, and exercise as well as other holistic therapies are also offered at the OK Rehab Centre as part of your treatment. These types of therapy can help to improve how you feel and can be helpful for you.
Staying clean from drugs and alcohol can sometimes very hard so remaining focused and positive will make it easier to get through when you experience a craving. By working on your well-being, it will help your mental health greatly.
What Happens After Treatment?
Once your treatment with OK Rehab is complete, you can return home to Ashford. One thing that we recommend you do is find a local support group to join and attend so that you can carry on with any therapy that you began with OK Rehab.
Having a good support network around you will help you to stay on track and free from alcohol and drugs.
There will the times when you experience triggers and cravings so having people around you that you trust is a great help when trying to stay on track. OK Rehab will also be there with you for advice and guidance.
