Drug and Alcohol Rehab Hammersmith and Fulham
When someone is suffering from an addiction, the effects aren’t just confined to their physical and mental health. Those who’ve suffered addictions will often tell you the impact it had on their families, carers and affected their relationships, not to mention the negative effects it can have on your career, finances and personal life. If you want to break free of addiction and are looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Hammersmith, then give Cassiobury Court a call. We are based in Watford in the North London suburbs, so just a short journey from Hammersmith and Fulham, and are set in a quiet area that’s an ideal location to heal.
Do I need rehab?
Those who suffer from addiction will often be deeply in denial, so it can be difficult to convince them that they need treatment and recovery. If you are suffering from an addiction yourself, then you may think you have things under control, but you may not realise the effect it has on your life.
There can be many things that lead people to seek drug and alcohol rehab in Hammersmith. Your substance misuse may be affecting your mental health, perhaps causing you to feel depressed or anxious, or it may be making you impulsive, leading to endless problems in your personal life. It could be that you’ve suffered a relationship breakdown, debt problems, or even legal troubles due to your addiction, and have realised that you need to make a change. Some people get in touch with Cassiobury Court when they’ve been given dire warnings from their doctor about their health, realising that their addiction will eventually kill them.
Another sign that you might need drug and alcohol services from Cassiobury Court is that you’ve tried to quit before and relapsed. If you go cold turkey and stop drinking or taking drugs, do you suffer side effects? If so, this can be a sign that your addiction has become serious and that you’ll need professional help to quit.
How can I get help?
For many people suffering from addiction, their first stop is often their local GP practice. In some cases, this can be helpful, and your GP can sometimes refer you to local organisations or for social care, but when it comes to getting NHS treatment, the waiting lists can be extremely long. In areas such as the London Borough of Hammersmith, you may simply never reach the top of the list, as more urgent, life-threatening cases will be put ahead of you in the queue.
This is why Cassiobury Court often get enquiries from people in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, as private drug rehab might be their only option for professional help. Our treatment is intensive, tailored to you, and available in as little as 48-hours, which makes it easy to access for those who don’t want to wait for drug and alcohol treatment.
Many people who call us are worried about the cost of going private for drug and alcohol services. While it’s not the cheapest option, we try to keep it as affordable as possible and offer excellent value for money. The price that we quote you includes everything from therapy sessions to meals, so there are no hidden costs, and our service for adult patients includes 24/7 care and support. Because you stay with us for 28 days, it’s an intensive programme, so it can work out less expensive than years of therapy or going through ineffective outpatient programmes.
What is detox?
Detox is the first step for most people who come to us for drug and alcohol rehab Hammersmith. It basically means you stop taking drugs or alcohol, and over time, they leave your body. While you may have tried to go ‘cold turkey’ on your own and perhaps relapsed because of the side effects, the experience at Cassiobury Court is quite different. We can offer prescription medication to ease your withdrawal symptoms, and ensure you’re medically supervised through the whole process. You also have support from a team of psychologists, nurses and other support workers, getting you through the difficult times.
What is rehab?
We often hear from people who simply want to go through a drug or alcohol detox and then leave, but we highly recommend that you consider a full rehab programme. At just 28 days in length, our drug and alcohol service can support those who have busy lives who want intensive therapy.
Rehab at Cassiobury Court includes both individual and group therapy, holistic treatments and much more. We understand that all addictions are different, and there’s not one type of treatment that’ll magically fix things. That’s why we offer a number of treatment options that focus on both your mind and body, so you have the best possible chance of staying well in the long term.
What happens after rehab?
If you complete 28-days of rehab at Cassiobury Court, you’ll have many tools at your disposal to help you stay away from drugs or alcohol, but for the best chance of success you should complete the year of free aftercare included in your programme. Anyone who finishes their 28 days with us will be offered these sessions, which take the form of group therapy, and can be very effective in helping you stay sober.
We’ll also look at other recovery services that you may be able to use in your local area. For example, if there’s a local confidential alcohol service such as Alcoholics Anonymous, then regularly attending meetings can keep you on track. We’ll also help you set some goals for the short and long term, whether it’s getting a job, studying or doing some voluntary work. If you’re busy and productive, you’re less likely to relapse.
At the end of your drug and alcohol rehab in Hammersmith, we want you to feel better, look healthier and be optimistic about the future. And if you complete your programme plus aftercare, you have an excellent chance of staying off drugs and alcohol for good.
