Drug and Alcohol Rehab Banbury
It can be extremely scary to realise that you or a loved one are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction. There are many negative portrayals of people with addiction in the media, and while it’s an unpleasant disease, it is something you can overcome with the right help. If you’re searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Banbury then you’ve already taken the first step and admitted you need help, and Cassiobury Court can help you through the next part of the journey. Our rehabilitation programme combines scientifically proven and holistic methods to give you the best possible chance of overcoming your addiction for life.
How addiction develops
Addiction doesn’t happen overnight. You don’t just wake up one morning and find you have a compulsion to drink or use drugs, it’s something that often develops over years, sometimes triggered by an event in the addict’s life. No matter how badly they or their loved ones’ lives are affected by this person’s use of drugs or alcohol, they simply can’t stop.
When you come to Cassiobury Court, you’ll work with addiction counsellors to determine the underlying causes of your addiction. This helps you find coping mechanisms outside of drugs and alcohol and gives you the tools you need to prevent relapses in future.
Addiction can be difficult to treat because it hijack’s your brain’s pleasure centres, which reward us when we do pleasurable things from drinking water to socialising. It also affects your frontal lobes, the area of our brains that tells us to stop doing things and helps us make wide decisions, hence, getting caught in negative cycles. However, once you go through detox and rehab, your brain will start to heal, so you can begin to enjoy life again.
How addiction is treated at Cassiobury Court
Cassiobury Court offer residential rehab, which means you’ll stay at our centre in Watford for 28 days. While you may be specifically looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Banbury, it’s worth considering this location, as it’s less than 90 minutes by car, but gives you a break from any negative influences.
The first stage of your rehab is going through a full assessment, which will help us tailor your treatment programme. Many people who come to us have a dual diagnosis, which means they have a drug and/or alcohol addiction in combination with eating disorders, mental health issues or a behavioural addiction such as sex or gambling. It’s important that you’re honest during your assessment so we give you the right support during your stay.
When you begin drug or alcohol rehab, you’ll need to go through a detox, which will get any remaining substances out of your system. It’s common for people to come to rehab under the influence of these substances, so we ask that you have a friend drive you, or ask us to arrange transport, so you can arrive safely.
Detox takes a few days, and you can be helped through it with prescription medication, as well as getting plenty of support. Because you’re in residential treatment, you are well looked-after during the process, and this support continues when you start your rehab. From individual therapy to group sessions, you’ll be kept busy during your time at Cassiobury Court but will also have time to relax and enjoy the country surroundings, as well as a few organised outings.

If you would rather your GP not be informed about your stay, just let us know.

In the long term, you may also find it useful to go to groups such as Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous, as the 12 step programme is an excellent way to keep you on track and you can get help if you’re worried about relapsing.
