Drug and Alcohol Rehab Godalming
Do You Need Rehab Treatment?
One of the hardest steps in the addiction recovery process is admitting that you have a drug or alcohol addiction or even recognising that you need help. What’s more, often it’s friends and family who recognise the issue first as they identify a change in behaviour and this can make the whole situation very difficult to deal with – especially if the individual is in denial.
Asking for help and knowing you have a problem with your drug and alcohol use is an important first step though and at Cassiobury Court, we’re here to help you through it.
There isn’t a set list of signs and symptoms that mean you need rehab treatment. However, if your drug or alcohol use is beginning to take a toll on your health, money, family life, work life or relationships – to name a few – then you’d probably benefit from going to rehab.
What’s more, the right rehab centre can help you to get your life back on track and meet those all-important goals. Whether you want to get a new job, move back in with a loved one or something else entirely, rehab can help you to prepare for the life that you’ve always wanted.
If you’ve been taking drugs and alcohol for a long time then you might find it very difficult to stop taking them. This is because your body and mind will have built up a tolerance and dependence toward it. Detoxing, which is the process of the substance leaving your body, can become very difficult – and even dangerous – which is another reason why rehab treatment can be so beneficial.

Symptoms of Drug or Alcohol Abuse
The biggest sign of alcohol and drug addiction is wanting to stop using the substance but being unable to, or experiencing cravings and withdrawal symptoms without it. Other commons signs and symptoms include:
- Going to extreme lengths to obtain the substance
- Continuing to use drugs and alcohol despite the impact it’s having on other areas of your life
- Lying and being deceitful regarding your substance use
- Prioritising drugs and alcohol over other areas of your life
It’s important to remember that these aren’t a set list of symptoms. If you’re worried about your own usage or someone else’s, then it’s important to get the right help. With the right intervention and a team by your side, it is possible to walk away from addiction and recover in the long-term. All it takes is a message and you’ll be one step closer to your future.
What Happens During Detox?
One of the biggest benefits of going to rehab is that you’ll be supported through a medically-assisted detox. A drug or alcohol detox is essential before starting any treatment and therapy and is when you stop using drugs or alcohol and the substance leaves your body. Many people attempt this at home but withdrawal symptoms can make it difficult to complete.
However, during medically-assisted drug detox, doctors and nurses will be with you every step of the way. Not only will they monitor your symptoms but they can prescribe medication to ease the effects – making it the safest way to detox. Once you’ve completed this process, you’ll be ready to begin treatment.
Support During and After Rehab Treatment in Godalming
Rehab centres have their own processes and rules but the aim is usually the same: to treat the physical addiction, identify emotional triggers and help you to create new coping strategies that are good for your body and mind. Your support starts the moment you get in touch – whether you want to arrange a rehabilitation start date or you simply have some questions about potential treatment.
Once you arrive at rehab at Cassiobury Court, you’ll be guided and supported every step of the way. A team of doctors, nurses, counsellors and mental health specialists will ensure you have everything you need and specialist teams will work with you on aftercare and relapse prevention. What’s more, you’ll also be given details for local support groups in your area so you don’t need to worry about any guidance and advice coming to an end after your time at rehab.
When you’re not completing treatment and therapy, there are also wellbeing and holistic health experts who are on hand to help you to carve out a new and healthier lifestyle. This includes nutrition and diet coaches who will create personalised meal plans for you as well as an aftercare plan for your diet.
While you might feel alone right now, once at rehab, you’ll have the support of so many people. People who are experienced in addiction and recovery and people who only have your best interests at heart. Plus, for friends, family members and employers, our phone line is always open so, however you’ve been affected by addiction, you know that Cassiobury Court is always here.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are lots of different warning signs that you may be developing an addiction, and no list will be definitive. The biggest red flags to look out for are if you find yourself constantly looking forward to or planning your next drink or hit, and if you find yourself feeling unwell or unusual if you haven’t had any alcohol or drugs. If you regularly find yourself drinking or using in secret, or feeling ashamed and trying to hide your consumption from friends and family, that may also be a sign that things are getting out of hand. Ultimately, if you find yourself truly worried that you may have developed an addiction, the chances are that there is a problem growing. The best thing to do is reach out for help and advice.
This isn’t a simple question to answer as there’s no ‘one fits all’ approach - and so there shouldn’t be. Every person has a completely unique journey into how they developed an addiction to alcohol or drugs so it’s only realistic to expect a tailored treatment programme to be the most effective form of addiction treatment.
We strongly advise against undergoing a drug or alcohol detoxification at home as this significantly increases your risk of danger. It’s crucial that you have the 24/7 support of our expert team by your side throughout the entire detoxification process, they can safely manage any withdrawal symptoms that may arise by offering prescribed medication to ease the discomfort.
