For those seeking help with addiction in Welwyn Garden City, there are plenty of options available for every requirement and need.
When recovering from addiction, OK Rehab understands that it’s not just the individual who requires assistance. Addiction can affect anyone, so it’s important to consider the well-being of the individual and the friends and family around them.
The longer an addiction is left untreated, the worse the situation will get. Often referred to as a ‘downward spiral’, addiction quickly destroys relationships as well as other areas of the addict’s life such as finances and career.
Fortunately, OK Rehab is available to discuss any query about addiction – whether you’re looking to be admitted, or if you have a simple question about the process. Regardless of how serious or trivial you may believe the issue, our team is ready and waiting to help you today on 0800 326 5559.
Please do not hesitate to give us a call today and break the cycle of addiction.
Different addiction treatment options available
Every individual is unique in their addiction needs and requirements. What treatments may work for some individuals may not work for others depending on the severity, length, and type of substance abuse.
One of the most common treatment programmes available is the 12-step programme in which the individual works through a number of different therapies and techniques to confront their addiction.
Treatment programmes are effective as they help the individual understand their addiction, but they also provide a structure in which an individual can build a life around it. This is especially helpful when the individual leaves the rehabilitation centre.
However, as mentioned before, this may not be suitable in every case. For example, some people may be more attuned to strict scientific techniques, or the most recent research that the centre introduces.
Whatever treatment programmes you undertake, the services available in Welwyn Garden City boast modern rehab centres – the most effective and proven method for recovering from addiction in a controlled environment.
Staying in a centre greatly increases the success of the treatments offered.
Another advantage of staying in a specialised centre is the formation of a baseline for recovery after leaving the centre.
Returning to life in Welwyn Garden City is made all the easier by admitting yourself to one of these programmes or centres.
Withdrawal symptoms and management in a centre
Withdrawal symptoms vary for every individual. Some people may experience them very weakly if they have not been addicted to a substance for long, whereas those who have a longer history, or a more severe addiction may experience them much more harshly.
No matter which of these applies to each individual, OK Rehab always suggests for the period of detox be supervised and supported by another person.
This can be a friend or family member, but we often suggest entering a specific detox clinic as these can provide trained professionals to help you through this process.
Entrusting friends or family can seem like a good idea, but it often puts unnecessary pressure and responsibility on this individual, regardless of the symptoms exhibited by the individual experiencing withdrawal.
Individuals who have abused drugs and/or alcohol for a long time are at risk of some more serious withdrawal symptoms such as delirium tremens (DTs). In these examples, it is essential that these individuals access the support they need before attempting a detox.
It is important to act on the desire to overcome addiction quickly. Many individuals lose confidence or motivation very quickly, but with OK Rehab it couldn’t be easier.
After just one initial telephone consultation, you could be admitted to a rehab centre to begin your addiction treatment as soon as possible.
Rehabilitation centres and treatment programmes are available
Some common treatments/programmes available in rehabilitation centres in Welwyn Garden City:
- Initial assessment – including both physical and mental assessments, the aim of this initial assessment is to grasp a full picture of the individual requiring help. This allows the rehab centre to specifically tailor treatment programmes to your needs and discount any programmes that may not be specifically helpful.
- Support staff – in some centres, individuals are assigned a specific ‘mentor’ to focus on their specific recovery, but often there is a range of staff on hand to help with any query. This ranges from simple social support to medical support from trained individuals.
- Therapy sessions – these can be both individual and in groups. Both give the individuals a good opportunity to share their experiences, learn from others, and understand their own addiction better in a way to help themselves in the future.
- Holistic therapy techniques – aside from standard and typical treatment programmes, there are also more modern techniques that are being introduced. For example, therapies such as music, art, and exercise are now being used in more modern rehab centres.
