Drug and Alcohol Rehab Washington
What Rehab Services Are There In Washington?
Located in Tyne and Wear, Washington is a town close to Sunderland in the North of England. While there isn’t a rehab centre in the town of Washington, there are a few different options a short drive outside of the town. You also have the option to travel further afield including to our very own inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility at Cassiobury Court.
To access any rehab treatment, you need to be referred. This can either be done via your GP or by getting in touch with our friendly team. In Washington, there are several different GP services but you must be registered with at least one of them in order for a referral to be made.
Whichever rehab service you choose in Washington, services will typically include a medically-assisted drug or alcohol detox as well as a range of talking and creative therapy. The aim is to treat physical and behavioural addiction symptoms while reducing the likelihood of relapse.
It’s important that you choose the right type of addiction recovery treatment for you. However, the most effective type of rehab is inpatient treatment. This is where you stay on-site at a clinic for the duration of the programme, which is usually one month. Under this programme, you’ll be monitored and supported 24 hours a day.
Alternatively, there is outpatient treatment – which still offers a great chance of success. However, it does mean you will return home in the evening with limited support. You also need to consider how you will feel returning to a familiar area where there may be temptation and distraction.
Inpatient Treatment at Cassiobury Court
Many people are concerned about travelling away from home to attend inpatient rehab treatment. But there are lots of different types of inpatient treatment and, at Cassiobury Court, we encourage visits and family therapy. Your stay with us will last up to four weeks but can be as short as one week.
When you arrive, one of our doctors will assess your mental and physical health. You will then need to complete a medically-assisted drug detox, which is where you are prescribed suitable medication to help with any side effects as you withdraw from drugs or alcohol.
Lots of people try to complete this at home but struggle with side effects, which can even become dangerous. These can range from mild symptoms like muscle aches and shaking and can become more severe including seizures and hallucinations. A detox is essential for you to begin addiction treatment however and a medically assisted detox is one of the biggest advantages of coming to an alcohol or drug rehab centre like Cassiobury Court.
Once this is complete, you’ll then begin therapy. At Cassiobury Court, this includes talking therapy and creative therapy to help you to combat the addiction and boost your chances of staying resilient in the outside world.
Outpatient Treatment in Washington
As mentioned above, your GP can advise on local treatment in Washington and this includes outpatient rehab centres and local community initiatives. If you choose an outpatient facility, you’ll still receive therapy and support but you won’t stay overnight. The NHS also offers outpatient treatment for free, which your GP will explain.
Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have other commitments such as childcare responsibilities but it’s important to consider how you will cope with a similar routine as well as being close to temptations and distractions. Unfortunately, this can make it very difficult for you to complete your rehabilitation programme and the chances of relapse are high.
Washington also has several local support groups including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA meetings) and Narcotics Anonymous in the nearby areas of Birtley and Chester-le-Street. Not only are these benefits as an outpatient but also as an inpatient and can provide needed support once your rehab journey has come to an end too.
Types of Addiction Treated At Cassiobury Court
Alcohol addiction is the most common type of addiction in the UK and, at Cassiobury Court, we offer treatment for it on an inpatient basis. This is because we believe that inpatient treatment offers the best chance of recovery success for those who are alcohol dependent as well as that much-needed respite away from alcohol.
While Washington is a relatively small town, it has direct links to Sunderland and other larger UK cities and unfortunately, people here aren’t immune to drug addictions. At Cassiobury Court, we offer treatment for cocaine addiction, opiate addiction and cannabis addiction. We also treat a number of mental health conditions.
Addiction is a very personal condition, and completing a rehab programme doesn’t tend to differ depending on the drug you are addicted to. Instead, treatment focuses on mitigating physical symptoms and treating any behavioural concerns too.
