Drug and Alcohol Rehab Greenford
Getting professional help might appear to be scary but researching “rehab near me” or “what to expect at rehab” means that you are ready to take steps to tackle your addiction head on.
Accepting you need help is your first hurdle, but it is one of the biggest. When you ask for help, we are here to provide you with all the support you require for your recovery journey. Our rehabilitation centre in Greenford offers a wide range of treatment options for an array of addictions.
Finding the appropriate rehab for drug and alcohol addiction can seem overwhelming, but we can provide you with initial guidance over the telephone. We provide a number of treatment options, such as inpatient and outpatient, and we will tailor your treatment to your personal requirements.
Recovery is a journey, and we will help you to change your lifestyle, reconsider your mindset and help you to overcome the physical and psychological damage that has been caused by your addiction.
The Signs of Addiction
Someone suffering with an addiction can see their life completely change in a matter of weeks. It is even worse for loving family members, and friends, who can see their loved one completely change both physically and mentally as a drug or alcohol addiction takes hold.
Drug and alcohol abuse transforms personalities and bodies. Someone who is normally outgoing can become antisocial and shun all social events, hiding themselves away. They may also become aggressive and paranoid and even resort to illegal activities in order to be able to continue with their habit.
Physically, they may stop looking after themselves and have a significant loss of pride in their personal appearance. They will also experience a severe weight fluctuation and may lose a lot of weight, quickly.
If you recognise these signs of alcohol addiction and abuse or drug addiction and abuse then you should take action right away. If you are worried about the welfare of a loved one, we offer family drug support and family and friend referral facilities to ensure your loved one gets the support that they require.
We recommend you seek rehab in Greenford without delay – the longer an addiction is left, the harder it becomes to treat and the more damage it can cause to people’s lives.
Drug and Alcohol Services
When you contact us, our admissions team will be able to guide you through your therapy options. There are numerous drug and alcohol rehab treatments available. Cassiobury Court offer numerous different addiction treatment options on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Inpatient treatment allows someone to recover in the privacy and safety of a residential setting. This time away from everyday life can make a real difference to those suffering with an advanced drug or alcohol addiction. It allows you to recover in a supportive, safe environment and is ideal for those who do not have a home life conducive to a long-term recovery.
Outpatient treatment is more suitable for people who are in the early stages of addiction. This method allows you to receive treatment during the day but spend time at home with your family on an evening and at weekends. This is ideal for people who have a support mechanism at home.
There are also NHS options, but these options are limited. There are long waiting lists and this risks your addiction deepening whilst awaiting your treatment. The NHS also offer more of a one size fits all approach, which means you may receive inappropriate treatment.
So much of an addiction is a mental health issue and as such, we will identify any underlying mental health conditions and perform dual diagnosis treatment where necessary. This is rarely the case with NHS treatment.
Detox and Therapies
The detox clinic is an important part of your treatment. Detoxification is needed for the majority of our clients. Drug or alcohol detox is essential for long-term recovery and is the process of removing dependency on addictive substances.
With the use of detox medications, Cassiobury Court are able to offer a medically assisted detox. Drug and alcohol withdrawal is difficult on the body due to the onset of painful withdrawal symptoms, like severe nausea and excessive shaking and sweating. The medications act as a sedative, which allows you to negotiate this difficult process with as little discomfort as possible.
When you are able to complete your detox, you’ll be taking part in therapies on both an individual and group basis.
Individual therapies are an opportunity to explore your addiction and address addictive behaviours via Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), stress management and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT.) Group therapies allow you share experiences with fellow recovering addicts, which acts as a form of positive peer pressure.
Before you leave our care, you will receive an aftercare plan. This plan will allow you to make positive changes to your life moving forwards and is a very important part of relapse prevention – relapse is most likely in the year following your rehab.
An initial consultation will take place over the telephone and once we agree a way forward, we will admit you to our rehabilitation centre. There is no wait for our services, and we can begin to treat you without delay. If you are unsure how to choose rehab, we are able to provide you with all the information that you require.
During detox, your access to addictive substances will be gradually removed – this is known as “tapering” and is a better option than the common misconception of going “cold turkey” and completely cutting access. This is damaging and potentially very dangerous. In detox, your safety is assured and your progress regularly monitored.
“How long is rehab?” is one of the most common questions we’re asked. It’s difficult to answer as each individual is different and rehab length is usually determined by the severity of your addiction. Some people may only need a few days, some people may need between 14-21 days.
