Drug and Alcohol Rehab Southwark
If you’re worried that you might be drinking to excess, or have a loved one who is displaying the sighs of alcohol or drug abuse, get in touch with Cassiobury Court today. We are often used by those looking for alcohol rehab in Southwark, as we are based in the suburbs of Watford, just a couple of hours away by car. This means you can spend time at our rehab centre recovering, without the distractions of everyday life.
Recovering from drug and alcohol addiction isn’t easy, and undertaking one of our treatment programmes will be tough, but if you have the commitment to stop drinking excessively and stick with the programme, then a stay in Cassiobury Court gives you a great chance of success. While you may be considering measures from outpatient treatment to support groups, we believe that many people with addictions get on better in a residential rehab that’s away from home, so they can truly commit and focus on recovery.
How do I find drug and alcohol rehab in Southwark?
While the first step to overcoming problem drinking is simply admitting you need help, when you reach out, you may find it difficult to get support. Many people who live in Worthing are suffering from NHS cuts and overwhelmed services, so it can take a long time to even get an initial assessment, let alone get into a rehab facility. However, during that time you may find your drinking escalates, causing personal or physical problems. You may even change your mind about seeking treatment if you wait too long. That’s why Cassiobury Court offer a quick admissions process for those worried about their drug or alcohol use. You don’t have to be referred by a GP, you simply pick up the phone and we do the rest.
We are often contacted by family members who are worried about a loved one who may be showing signs of alcoholism. Perhaps you’ve noticed they drink regularly during the day, or that their drinking has caused them problems in their relationships. They may have told them that they should attend alcohol and drug rehab, only to be met with denial. In these cases, we can help arrange for an intervention, opening up communication and hopefully encouraging your loved one into rehab.
Will I need to go through a detox?
No matter what type of rehab facility you check into, the first step is nearly always a detox. You may have tried to detox before at home, yet found the cravings for alcohol and withdrawal symptoms too strong, but we can offer lots of support to get you through it. At Cassiobury Court, there are options such as rapid detoxes, which only take a few days, and while you stay in our private rehab clinic you’ll be closely monitored to ensure you don’t have extreme side effects. It can be quite common to get the shakes and feel anxious and restless while detoxing, and this can be managed with prescription medication, but sometimes there can be more dangerous side effects such as seizures and that’s why it’s not safe to detox at home.
What happens after Detoxing?
After you’ve gone through your detox, it’s highly recommended that you complete a rehab programme. Those who’ve struggled with addiction and managed to heal have often needed ongoing support, and simply getting the alcohol out of your system isn’t enough in the long term. Stay at Cassiobury Court and you’ll get intensive counselling sessions from our qualified, experienced team, who can help you identify why you started drinking to excess. As part of your drug and alcohol rehab in Southwark, you’ll get treatment such as cognitive behavioural therapy, which can help you overcome negative thoughts and feelings, giving you the skills you need to avoid drinking alcohol excessively in future.
Because you’re in a facility with others that have addictions, group therapy can also be part of your treatment programme. While you may feel shy about sharing your experiences at first, you’ll no doubt find it helpful to chat about coping techniques, what triggers your drinking and your experiences.
Is Aftercare available?
From our experience, the first 12 months after you leave Cassiobury Court are when you’re most prone to a relapse. We really don’t want this to happen, which is why we offer a year of free aftercare. We may put you in touch with local services such as Recovery Lighthouse, as well as connecting you with our network of former clients for moral support. We want you to make a full recovery, and you can only do this is you feel supported even when you leave rehab, which is why aftercare is so important. You can find out more about the full experience on our website, and if you continue to use this site you’ll find lots of handy information about rehab and beyond.
