Drug and Alcohol Rehab Wilmslow
No matter whether you have only recently developed a problem with drugs and/or alcohol or you have been battling with substance abuse for some years now, it is never too early or late to get professional help.
Our state-of-the-art drug and alcohol rehab in Wilmslow helps individuals in all various stages of addiction each year, and we are ready to help you overcome your issues just as they have.
How Does Drug And Alcohol Addiction Begin?
Addiction is an illness to which anyone can fall prey, with a shocking number of individuals from all various walks of life succumbing to drug and alcohol addiction each year across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.
There is no age bracket for people falling victim to developing an addiction either, with a lot of young people starting to experiment with drugs and/or alcohol out of curiosity.
And, while for some people this curiosity can remain a passing fancy, for others it can start a life-ruining decline into a serious addiction.
Drug addiction can often develop gradually over a long period of time, with an addict not realising that they have become addicted until it is too late.
Narcotics can hijack the reward-pleasure parts of an individual’s brain, with this leading to drug consumption leading to extra “feel-good” chemicals being released into the individual’s brain — simultaneously, this can also mean that your brain has more difficulty producing these chemicals naturally from then on.
As a result, your body will begin to experience the feeling that it needs drugs and/or alcohol in order to function normally, with this need growing worse over time.
Ultimately, this is how addiction starts for an individual and is why is it so hard for addicts to break the cycle of addiction.
Some individuals are also more susceptible to falling prey to addiction, with some factors such as genetics putting these people at a higher risk of developing an addiction. There have been many studies into the role of genetics in addiction, with many studies showing that addiction may well run in families.
Therefore, if you have a family member who has developed an addiction in the past, you may be more at risk of also developing an addiction.
Environmental factors can also influence how susceptible a person is to addiction. Peer pressure, lack of parental figures/guidance, and exposure to negative substances from a young age can all contribute to an individual having an unhealthy relationship with drugs and/or alcohol as they grow.
Making Sure That You Are Ready For Recovery
A course of treatment at a residential rehab, such as the ones provided by Cassiobury Court, is a very intensive form of treatment — hence why it is such as successful treatment option.
The constant round-the-clock care that you will receive at our facility will mean that you have support whoever you need from our medical professionals and care workers, while also being able to take some time away from your everyday life to really focus on a recovery plan.
In order to get the most out of your stay with us you must be ready to make necessary changes to your everyday life, as well as trust in the therapies and treatments that will be administered in our treatment centre — with one of the first treatments being a course of physical treatment at our detox clinic.
Let Us Help You Through Detoxification
A lot of people can think that they need to get clean far in advance of attending our rehab; however, our detox clinic is designed to make sure that you can get clean and pass through withdrawal in the safest possible way.
Detox can be a very dangerous, and even life-threatening, process. As such, it should be experienced under the guidance and supervision of trained medical professionals.
The medical professionals at our detox clinic will keep you safely monitored throughout this period and prescribe appropriate medication where necessary to manage your symptoms.
The medication that you are prescribed will also be carefully managed depending upon what form of addiction you are in the process of overcoming.
Once this is completed, and all of the detrimental substances have been slowly removed from your body, you will be ready to start the next stages of your recovery.
Talking Therapies Will Help You Overcome Your Deep-Rooted Issues
A large majority of your psychological therapy will be spent on addressing the emotional and mental issues which have lead you to your current place. A lot of addicts’ illness stems from internalised emotions often resulting from a traumatic experience or long-standing stressor in their life.
So, our teams of therapists will take you through these issues and help you to overcome them, meaning that they do not have the same hold over you which causes you to repeatedly turn to drugs and/or alcohol as a coping mechanism.
Some of the therapies that will help you through this will include the likes of grief/trauma counselling, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), family drug support counselling, group therapy (12 step therapy), one-to-one therapy, motivational therapy, relapse prevention training, and more.
In tandem with these psychological-orientated therapies, we will also administer a series of holistic therapies to make sure your body and your mind are in the best possible condition.
These will include the likes of acupuncture, massage therapy, stress management classes, art therapy, music therapy, NAD+ therapy, satori chair therapy, low-level laser treatment, as well as a whole host of other wellness-orientated treatments and classes.
