Addiction is defined as something you have no control over doing, but which causes you harm. Despite common stereotypes, anyone can become an addict, as this illness is not prejudiced towards social standing. You might become addicted to work, shopping, gambling, alcohol or drugs, to name a few.
If you’re dependant on a substance to achieve a “high” or feeling if elation, you have become addicted. You may use this substance to escape daily of familial stresses, or perhaps you’ve experienced a trauma in your life. A good test is to see if you can go for 24 hours without the need to consume that substance.
Just the fact that you’re reading this suggests that you may have an addiction, or have a loved one that is suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction.
The most common addiction we treat is for drugs and alcohol. We offer a free and confidential initial consultation through which our staff will discuss with you your addiction, lifestyle and medical history.
If left untreated addiction can tear your life apart. Your relationships will break down as you focus on getting your next fix, whilst your friends and family drift further and further away.
Addiction is an isolating experience that is often accompanied by mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
To successfully overcome an addiction you need both physical and psychological help. We offer a variety of mental health treatments and support to accompany detox, to treat both your mind and body.
The first step is admitting you have an addiction, thereafter we are here to help.
At Step One Recovery we provide holistic treatment programmes that are based on leading, evidence based treatments to treat both physical and psychological impacts of drug and alcohol addiction.
We understand that each journey to long term recovery is personal, which means that we work with you to tailor your addiction treatment to you.
All rehab treatment programmes start with detox. It’s important to rid your body of the substance you have been misusing to allow you to then focus on the psychological impacts of addiction. Detox is always conducted under medical supervisions at our rehab clinics.
We’ll work with you to slowly decrease your consumption levels until you’re clear of the substance. Withdrawal symptoms will vary depending on the length and severity of your addiction, but can range from simple headaches to mood swings and heart palpitations, to more severe symptoms such as seizures.
During your time at Step One Recovery you’ll receive a combination of both physical and psychological treatment. Once your detox is safely underway you’ll begin your therapy treatment.
This is personalised to suit your needs, but could include individual therapy, group therapy sessions, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and stress management workshops.
By undertaking therapy you can start to understand your addiction, your triggers and how to manage it in day to day life.
At the same time as undergoing therapy you’ll be provided with a nutritional plan to help your body recover from the addiction. All these different elements will work together to help you overcome your addiction and maintain long term recovery in daily life.
One of the first decisions you’ll have to make about your treatment is whether you want to receive residential or outpatient treatment. The difference between the two is whether you stay at a residential facility, or whether you receive your treatment from the comfort of your own home.
At first glance, outpatient treatment may seem like the most appealing option, but it is in fact the most challenging. You’ll attend a detox clinic during the day, but return home at evenings and weekends where you’ll be surrounded by your addition triggers and negative influences.
Residential rehab, on the other hand, provides distance between you and your daily life that has drives your addiction. Residential, private drug and alcohol rehab is considered to yield the best long-term recovery results, due to this distance and the one-to-one treatment provided at the rehabilitation centres.
At Step One Recovery you’ll be provided with luxury accommodation, access to the communal spaces in the centre, vast grounds you can roam for reflection and a variety of therapies, workshops and classes to help you establish a healthier lifestyle.
Our team of qualified and experienced staff are on hand to offer you support and guidance 24 hours a day and our onsite doctors and nurses will guide you through your detox.
Residential drug and alcohol rehab in Hampshire lasts for up to 28 days.
We consider this enough time for you to successfully detox and undertake a comprehensive therapy treatment plan to start rebuilding your life.
Upon leaving our rehabilitation centre you’ll be provided with a Relapse Prevention Plan to help you maintain long-term recovery at home. Even though your residential care finishes after an intensive 28 day program, we’ll work with you through our 12 month free aftercare program to ensure you settle back into daily life.
Admitting you have an addiction is the hardest step to take, but if you’re reading this it’s likely you’ve already admitted this. All you have to do now is take action and give our friendly and supportive team a call to start your journey to long-term recovery.
