If you decide to take the plunge, all you need to do is pick up the phone and speak to our team for some free advice, helping you decide whether rehab is right for you.
How addiction affects your life
Addiction can have many negative consequences in your life. A drug or alcohol addiction can cause legal problems, relationship issues or trouble at work. You may find yourself in debt, or even stealing money to get your next fix. Addiction doesn’t only affect you, alcoholism and drug abuse can also have a negative effect on your loved ones who watch you suffer, and that’s why it’s important to get rehab treatment as soon as possible.
Choosing residential rehab
While you may be specifically searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough, there are many reasons why it’s worth looking for rehab clinics a little further away from home. The point of drug or alcohol rehab is to get you out of negative behaviour patterns, and if you’re around people who are a bad influence, then it can be harder to stay on track. Cassiobury Court is set in Watford, around a 90-minute drive from Peterborough, so although you’re away from home you’re still close enough for loved ones to visit and don’t feel isolated.
The first step in rehab is usually to go through a drug or alcohol detox. Because your body is used to having these substances in your system, this can lead to withdrawal symptoms, which can be managed with prescription medication. Inpatient treatment also has the advantage of being under medical supervision. Some drugs can cause quite severe side effects as they leave your system, meaning you may need medical assistance. Rest assured, when you’re at Cassiobury Court you are monitored and well looked after during this time.
We understand that people who come for alcohol or drug rehab often have an underlying cause for their behaviour. They might use substances to self-medicate due to mental health issues, or they might have had trauma in their past which they are trying to forget. Finding the underlying cause of your addiction is important to make a full recovery, as it means we can start to help you cope and give you the tools you need for long term sobriety. Because you’re in a residential setting, you can undertake intensive therapy in a relatively short space of time, which helps many people kick-start their sober life.
Treatments in the UK
There are many scientifically-proven treatments that we use at Cassiobury Court, all of them approved for use in the UK. When you are searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough and making your initial queries, we’ll discuss a number of packages and treatment options that we think might suit you. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a popular choice for many of our clients, helping you identify negative thought patterns and overcome them, without the use of alcohol or drugs.
When you stay at rehab in Peterborough, it’s also important to try some complementary therapies, as this can help you find the combination that works for you. From massages to art therapy and yoga, there are lots of things that can help you relax and unwind. If your body is healthy and you’re happy and active, then it’s less likely you’ll want to relapse, which is why we offer many therapy options.
When you are initially searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough, you may only be thinking of getting clean and sober, but might not be thinking much about what life will be like outside of rehab. However, aftercare is an essential part of the rehab process. If you don’t have aftercare in place, there’s a high chance of a relapse, so it’s important to have that support network in place before you leave us. You can attend 12-months of free aftercare sessions at Cassiobury Court, with support groups guided by trained counsellors to keep you on track. We can also find local organisations in Peterborough who can help you out.
Opting for private rehab
Private rehab is a great option for those who want to skip the NHS waiting lists and get treatment as soon as possible. While we understand that private rehab can be a large expense for many people, but when you compare it to the potential cost of your addiction in the long term, then it might make sense to invest in rehab now. Private rehab also has the advantage of being tailored to suit your needs, rather than the one-size-fits-all approach that many programmes offer. If budget is an issue, we can discuss the different packages we have available. While you stay with us, things like food and activities are included, which means you get excellent value for money, and your stay includes 24/7 support from professionals.
