Drug and Alcohol Rehab Ipswich

If you’ve come across this website, then it’s likely you’re worried about your addiction, or that of a loved one, so you no doubt want to know the best course of action. That’s why Cassiobury Court offer world-class addiction treatment in our centre in Watford, less than a two-hour drive from Ipswich. Stay with us and you can undergo a 28-day programme of detox and rehabilitation designed to help you kick drug and alcohol addiction for good.


Do I need drug and alcohol rehab in Ipswich?

Many people who contact us are unsure about checking into rehab centres. They may think they have things under control, or they may feel they can get better on their own. Sadly, many people with addictions simply don’t seek out addiction support until they’ve reached rock bottom, the point where they feel things can’t get any worse.

You don’t have to wait to reach rock bottom before you seek help. Just the fact that you’re doing research into drug and alcohol rehab is a good indicator that you feel it’s time to go to treatment. If you had a serious illness, you wouldn’t wait for things to get worse before you sought help, so why wait to get addiction treatment?

Around 50,000 deaths a year in the UK are linked to drug or alcohol addiction, and the sad fact is, without proper treatment, you’re at risk of a worsening addiction that could one day kill you.

Deaths attributed to drugs reached an all-time high in Ipswich in 2020, increasing by 54% compared to the previous period. Therefore it is imperative if you are troubled by an addiction to drugs or alcohol, that you seek treatment as soon as possible.


Do I have to stay sober in the long term?

When you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Ipswich, you’ll notice that each different type of clinic has its own rules, and while some aim to let you drink moderately or use drugs recreationally, at Cassiobury Court, we want you to abstain for life.

It’s very difficult to get control over your drinking or drug use if you have an addiction. That’s why programmes such as 12-step promoted by Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous promote abstinence programmes. Admitting that you’re powerless over your addiction is an important part of healing, and this means you may have to make changes to your lifestyle to stay away from drugs or alcohol. At Cassiobury Court, we aim to show you that this change is possible.


When can I be admitted to rehab?

If you’ve been looking for rehab in Ipswich and have approached the NHS for help, you’ll know it’s often difficult to get support in a timely manner. But without fast intervention, you may find that your drinking or drug use worsens, which could lead to all sorts of problems in your personal or professional life. While you may be worried about the rehab cost, going private is often the best option for those serious about recovery. At Cassiobury Court, we aim to admit you within 48 hours, and can sometimes take you in sooner if a bed is available, so there’s no need to delay your treatment.


What if I need help for a loved one?

It’s not always people with addictions who make the first contact with us. We often hear from family members, spouses and friends who are worried about their loved ones yet are finding it difficult to get them to accept help.

You can’t force someone to go into alcohol or drug rehabs, and in all honesty, it’s difficult to treat someone who doesn’t come willingly and who doesn’t want to change. However, you can help your loved one see the consequences of their actions and hopefully guide them into rehab by staging an intervention. We’ll help you set this up, and at the end of the intervention, the person with the addiction will be offered rehab options such as a stay at Cassiobury Court, so hopefully, they’ll finally decide to accept help.


Local Addiction Resource

If you feel like outpatient services in the local community may be useful, the 1st step should be to contact your local GP. They will be able to give you a full health check and, as someone you may be familiar with, provide an honest assessment of if you would benefit from a time in rehab.

Do you offer a detox?

Most people who come to Cassiobury Court for drug and alcohol rehab in Ipswich will need to go through a detox. It helps to clear your mind and get you on the right track to begin your rehab programme. A detox can be quite tough, as you may start to experience withdrawal symptoms as the drugs or alcohol finally leave your body. There are prescription drugs you can take while you go through detox, which can help with these side effects, plus you’ll have 24/7 support in our clinic, which can help you stay on track.


What’s it like in rehab?

When you arrive at Cassiobury Court, we’ll discuss your treatment options for your 28 day stay. You’ll go through intensive therapy, which will include individual sessions and support groups, all of which are designed to help you overcome your addiction. You’ll learn new behaviours and patterns of thinking which can keep you sober in the long term.

Complete your programme, and you’ll get a year of free aftercare with us, which can help you stay on track. This can also keep you in touch with others who’ve gone through the programme and help you build a support network. The first 12 months after rehab can be the time when you’re most likely to relapse, so by completing your programme and aftercare, you stand an excellent chance of recovery.
