Drug and Alcohol Rehab Great Yarmouth
While Great Yarmouth is a lovely seaside town, it does have a problem with addiction, and there are a number of people currently struggling with drink or drug problems or working their way through recovery in the area. However, no matter how seemingly out of control your addiction has become, by looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Great Yarmouth, you can get your life back together.
At Cassiobury Court, we work with people with all sorts of addictions and give them the tools they need to stay sober in the long term. No matter what your life situation or whether you’ve tried different programmes in the past, we are here to help.
How do people overcome addiction?
There’s no magic cure to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction, while some treatments will work for some people, no one treatment will work for everyone with an addiction. But people who’ve made a recovery will often have several things in common. Firstly, they are fully committed to the process when they decide to go into rehab, knowing fully that they’re ready to give up their chosen drug and alcoholic drinks for life.
Those who do well in rehab are often the ones who’ve sought out help, rather than been forced into it by family members or the courts. If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Great Yarmouth, then that can be a good sign that you’re ready to go into recovery. Attitude can also play a big part in rehab, if you can start to appreciate the good things in life outside of drinking and using drugs and are grateful for the chance to rebuild your life, then you’re less likely to relapse.
How long does it take to get help?
In areas such as Great Yarmouth, there can be long waiting lists for any sort of NHS help, and they’ll often put you on outpatient programmes and try different types of treatment before you’ll even be considered. That’s why many people turn to private rehabs such as Cassiobury Court. We can often admit you within 48 hours, depending on whether a bed is available, so there’s less time for you to talk yourself out of rehab.
Delaying going into rehab can cause a number of issues. It can mean your addiction worsens, putting your life at risk, or can put you in debt or legal trouble. Addiction is a disease, and the longer you wait to treat a disease, the more difficult it becomes.
You don’t need a GP referral to come to Cassiobury Court, but we’ll carry out an initial assessment over the phone, plus a full assessment when you arrive. We’ll assume that you are happy for us to share details of your stay with your GP, so if you’re not then please let us know.
Will I have to detox at Cassiobury Court?
Most people who come to Cassiobury Court still have drugs or alcohol in their system, so they’ll need to go through the detox process. Residential rehab is an excellent way to get off these substances, as you get 24/7 support, and you can also take prescription medication that can help with the worst of the side effects.
It’s natural to worry about detoxing, especially you’re a heavy drinker or have used drugs for many years, but rest assured you’ll be well supported and monitored throughout the process. Our rapid detoxes can be as short as just a few days, so you’ll soon be over the worst of it.
What happens during rehab?
When you arrive at Cassiobury Court, we’ll go through your addiction treatment options, so you can feel less anxious about what’ll happen next. Once you’ve gone through your detox, your 28-day programme will continue with intensive therapy, which includes methods such as CBT. There are regular support groups, where you can share your experiences with others staying at Cassiobury Court, supporting each other through the process.
Your stay at Cassiobury Court isn’t just about therapy, we also offer holistic treatments and teach you relaxation methods that can help you when you leave rehab. You’ll go to workshops that teach you about methods such as relapse prevention, and there are exercise sessions so you can heal your body.
Cassiobury Court provides a homely, welcoming place to recover, and while you may be looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Great Yarmouth, it’s worth considering other options further from home such as our centre in Watford so that you have space to relax and focus on yourself.
What happens when I leave Cassiobury Court?
When you’re coming towards the end of your stay at Cassiobury Court, we’ll start talking to you about your aftercare. Everyone who completes their 28 days with us gets a year of free aftercare, and these regular support groups can keep you on track. You may also want to find some groups in your local area. Many areas have organisations who run a needle exchange or similar services, who also offer support for recovering addicts, so we’ll help you find some local help.
The first year of sobriety is known as being the hardest, which is why it’s important to keep up with your aftercare. This will ensure you always have people to talk to when you need support and can share your journey with people who understand.
