Drug and Alcohol Rehab Bedford
There are many reasons why you might be looking for alcohol and drug rehab in Bedford. Perhaps you’ve gone through a relationship breakdown due to your addiction or found yourself in legal trouble because of something you’ve done while under the influence. Whatever your reasons, Cassiobury Court is here to help. We offer scientifically proven methods to help you overcome addiction, whether you’re worried about your drinking or drug use, giving you a chance at a fresh start in life.
Cassiobury Court is set in Watford, so our drug and alcohol rehab centre is only an hour from Bedford, meaning you can take a break from your everyday life, without having to travel too far from home. Residential drug and alcohol rehab gives you one of the best chances of sobriety in the long term, and this kind of intensive treatment may be just what you need to make big changes to your life.
Getting professional help in Bedford
If you’re searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Bedford, then the odds are you know that you need some sort of help. While you’ll no doubt find lots of local support groups such as alcoholics anonymous as well as outpatient programmes that claim to cure addiction, it has been our experience that most people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction benefit more from an intensive, residential programme rather than trying to recover at home where there are distractions.
You may think you can go through recovery all along, and lots of people don’t like the idea of going to a treatment centre, so will simply go cold turkey and hope for the best. Unfortunately, the rate of success in these cases is extremely low. People with addictions are often physically and psychologically dependent on drugs or alcohol, meaning it’s simply too tempting to relapse.
Life inside rehab
If you’ve ever watched a TV show or movie where the character goes into rehab, you may be quite anxious about coming to us. That’s because there’s an incorrect stereotype that rehab is like being in a hospital, or even a prison, and that you’ll be locked up in an institution. Rest assured, our rehab clinics are very far from this image. Cassiobury Court offers a homely environment in which to go through your recovery programme, with bedrooms that wouldn’t look out of place in a nice hotel, communal areas where you can watch TV and chat, and grounds where you can go for some fresh air.
The team at Cassiobury Court are extremely friendly and welcoming, and many of them have gone through their own addiction battles, so there’s absolutely no judgement. When you go through addiction treatment with us, you get 24/7 support, and there are always people to talk to when you’re struggling.
Treatment options available to Bedford residents
When you arrive at Cassiobury Court, you’ll go through a full assessment of your physical and mental health, so we can come up with a plan for the best course of treatment.
Most people who come to us need to go through a detox. If you’re going through substance abuse issues, then it’s important to get all the alcohol and drugs out of your body so you can focus on healing. We offer fast detoxes under medical supervision, and you can be prescribed medication for the side effects if you wish.
Our programmes for alcohol or drug addiction treatment generally last for 28 days, giving you time to undergo therapy with trained addiction counsellors. You’ll go through individual sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as group sessions with others in treatment at Cassiobury Court. In addition to these traditional treatments, we also offer a number of holistic addiction treatment services from mindfulness to addiction workshops, so you get the best possible chance of recovery.
Staying sober after alcohol or drug rehab
If you’re at the stage where you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Bedford, then you may not even imagine that you’ll get through rehab. But we do everything we can to help you get sober and reach your goals. However, once you leave rehab, it can be scary to be out in the real world again, without the supportive environment to live in. That’s why those who complete 28 days at Cassiobury Court receive a year of free aftercare, this helps you get through one of the most difficult times in your recovery, with support groups where you can catch up with others who have been through the same programme.
Life after drug or alcohol rehab isn’t always easy, as you have to make big changes to the way you live to avoid temptation. It’s natural to sometimes feel isolated or bored. We ensure you have an aftercare plan in place to keep you busy, whether you need to find a new job, volunteer, or study, and while you stay with us you’ll learn lots of new ways to occupy your time such as yoga, fitness and creating art. All these things are much more productive than drug or alcohol use, so you can feel like you’re achieving something.
It can also be difficult to rebuild relationships that have been damaged due to drug or alcohol use. We can arrange for family or couples’ therapy during your stay at Cassiobury Court, which can go a long way towards helping you heal and rebuild bridges. We can also help you find local support groups, such as 12-step programmes, which can be helpful in the long term, with many members attending meetings for years after rehab to keep them on track.
