Drug and Alcohol Rehab Bury
As challenging as it is, admitting you need support is an exceptionally brave thing to do. Once you’ve made the initial contact with our drug and alcohol rehab in Bury, you’re one step closer to living a happier, healthier life free from addiction.
With the number of people seeking drug and alcohol treatment rising, even more, the pressure is being placed on our free local health services like the NHS. Unfortunately, as the NHS are so overstretched and underfunded, they’ll have to add you to a long waiting list where you’ll likely receive a generic treatment programme which tends to be fairly ineffective. As a result of poor experiences from local health services, more and more people are turning to private drug and alcohol rehab centres like ours. With high-quality facilities, industry-leading addiction treatments and an exceptional team of dedicated recovery workers, we can assure you that our rehab in Bury gives you the best chance of succeeding in your long-term recovery.
What can you do if you’re concerned about a loved one?
Maybe you’ve noticed a friend or family member displaying some unusual behaviours and suspect that they could need drug and alcohol treatment. We have a dedicated family and friend referral system for situations just like these. It’s never easy to watch someone you care about suffer from addiction to alcohol or drugs, especially when they’re struggling with severe negative side effects. At first, you should try to encourage them to seek support themselves from our rehab in Bury, however, it’s quite common for people to deny that they have a problem.
You can get in touch with our expert team who can advise of the best steps to take with regards to your loved one’s recovery. We will request further details about their relationship with alcohol or drugs to help us gain a better insight into their condition. From here, we can design the best treatment programme for them to follow and arrange a family intervention if needed. Although your loved one may seem reluctant at first, referring them to our rehab in Bury may be exactly what they need to realise how much they could benefit from professional support.
What is the process of our drug and alcohol rehab?
Once you have made the courageous decision to step forward and ask for professional support, you can begin the most rewarding experience you’ll go through in your life. Our admissions team will then conduct an initial assessment to review your physical and psychological health and take a look at your medical history to ensure we’re moving forward as safely as possible. By this point, we should have a better understanding of the nature of your condition and will be able to design an effective, bespoke treatment programme to benefit your specific needs.
Although our addiction treatment programmes are unique to each client, we commonly recommend a visit to our detox clinic. After abusing alcohol or drugs over a long period of time, your body will have likely become physically dependent on the substance, so it’s crucial that we end this dependency. We do this by gradually reducing your drug or alcohol consumption in a safe and controlled environment. The process of detoxification removes all of the harmful toxins from your body which are there as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. A detox will cleanse your body and prepare your mind for the subsequent psychological therapies.
Throughout your stay with us, our skilled therapists and psychiatrists will help you to determine what underlying issues you may have which could have caused your drug and alcohol abuse. Addiction is a very complex condition which requires professional advice and support to understand both your physical and psychological connections to alcohol or drugs. In many cases, substance abuse could be a coping mechanism to help deal with childhood trauma or grief that you’ve experienced. Our vast range of therapies will help you to recognise your triggers and overcome these underlying issues without the craving for drug and alcohol abuse.
In addition to your addiction treatments, we can facilitate special requests whilst you are with us. This could be a variety of medical appointments, dental or optician, or health and beauty related, hair, nails and personal trainers for example.
What happens once you’ve completed your treatment programme?
Upon completing your addiction treatment at our rehabilitation centre, which typically lasts around 28 days, you will return home to continue your recovery journey. We ensure that all of our clients take advantage of our free 12-month aftercare programme which is in place to help you retain your motivation, share your recovery achievements, and avoid any temptations to relapse.
The first year after completing your residential addiction treatment is the most crucial as it’s when you’re most susceptible to relapsing. It can be quite difficult to adjust to your new behaviours once you’re back at home, it can take some getting used to which is what we’re here to support you with.
During aftercare is a great time to catch up with other clients you may have grown close to during your treatment. Talking through your future plans together can have a considerable boost to your self-confidence and help to maintain a sober life.
We can also make recommendations for local support groups, Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. It’s a great idea to involve your family and friends so that they can identify the early signs of a potential relapse, intervene, and provide additional support where required.
