Through our treatment, you will be empowered to beat your addiction and go on to lead a life without drugs or alcohol. Our admissions process is simple and our team will answer any question you may have – and could have you in treatment within days of your initial enquiry.
Signs and Symptoms of Drug and Alcohol Addiction
The symptoms that someone is suffering from substance abuse can vary, depending on the person on the nature of the addiction. There are though common psychological, behavioural, and physical symptoms that you can spot. These symptoms if left untreated will eventually harm the person addicted and the people around – resulting in unpleasant outcomes such as a loss of job, decline in physical and mental health and sometimes even death.
Common psychological signs of substance abuse include:
- Wild changes in mood
- Increased paranoia
- Problems with memory
Common behavioural signs of substance abuse include:
- Not willing or incapable of quitting the substance despite the negative effects it is having
- Becoming more secretive and dishonest
- Isolating yourself from friends and family and abandoning responsibilities
Physical signs of substance abuse include:
- Disrupted sleep pattern
- A decline in appearance and/or hygiene
- Visibly unhealthy – a possible sudden change in weight/pale/gaunt look
Recognising the signs and symptoms of substance abuse may make you see that severe intervention via rehabilitation is needed. If the symptoms are mild then maybe outpatient rehab is the path for you. However, if you are experiencing these symptoms severely will have to consider residential treatment to give you the best chance at getting clean.
The Detoxification Process in Residential Rehab
Detoxing is the first major step you will take in your treatment plan. At Cassiobury Court, we believe that before you can address the psychological aspect of your addiction, the physical side must be addressed.
Detoxification is the process of purging harmful toxins in the body by ceasing your intake of the substance or substances that you are addicted to. Ridding your body of the poisonous chemicals that is your organs and brain chemistry allows you to heal and become healthier.
At our inpatient drug rehab centres, we use medical detoxification as it is the safest and most effective method. During medical detoxification you will be cared for 24/7 by our support staff and medication will be administered if needed to ease the worst of side effects that come when you stop drinking or taking drugs.
Experiencing withdrawal symptoms is something that scares many prospective clients, but with medication and in a calm environment, they are manageable. Side effects can differ depending on if you undergoing alcohol detox or drug detox but common withdrawal symptoms include headaches, nausea and increased levels of anxiety.
Here at Cassiobury Court, you will have constant support to help through the worse of the detoxing process. It’s a necessary part of drug addiction treatment that will give you a greater chance of achieving long-term recovery.
Therapy Options for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Much of your time in our treatment facility will be spent in therapy. Our therapy programme is a combination of individual, group, well-being therapies and social activities. The rehab treatment you take part in will be intensive, comprehensive and be always considerate of your emotional health.
Your sessions will consist of CBT, DBT, stress management and many other forms of therapy. The purpose of these types of therapy is to help you identify your addiction triggers and learn ways in which you can deal with them when back in the outside world. Individual therapy will be complemented by group therapy where you can talk through your issues surrounded and supported by other people in the rehab clinic.
The benefits you will get from this are immense. Through these sessions, you will see you are not alone in your struggles and hopefully build positive relationships that last beyond rehab.
When not in therapy, your time will be spent engaging in group activities such as walks and quiz nights so that you maintain the social aspect of life. Socialisation is important as do not want to feel isolated when undergoing treatment and keeping your mind and body active will keep it from thinking about your addictions. Cassiobury Court also offers a holistic approach to treatment, understanding that emotions drive addiction, and so we offer the chance to engage in wellbeing therapies such as Reiki, art therapy and massage.
In an environment catered towards your wellbeing and comfort, you will have the time, treatment options and structure to uncover the issues that drove you to addiction and devise a way to live life sober.
Aftercare and Relapse Prevention
Even after you complete your time in drug and alcohol rehab, you can continue a relationship with us. Cassiobury Court understands that recovery is a continual process and so offer a free 12-month aftercare package, to help you in those early vulnerable months. Through this programme, created by our aftercare specialists, you will have the chance to attend support groups, continue therapy and focus on relapse prevention.
In these meetings, you will come across the 12-step recovery programme – designed to help you overcome addiction. These meetings can allow you to talk through issues, work on your problem-solving skills and become more aware of your addiction triggers. People that engage in aftercare once they have completed rehab treatment are much more likely to remain sober and stop their life becoming a cycle of addiction and visits to rehab facilities.
Keeping up good habits, self-discipline and engaging with support groups and therapy give yourself a chance at long-term recovery and lead a fulfilling, sober life.
