An addiction to drugs or alcohol can take over a person’s life, and not only cause untold misery for them, but also the people they love. That’s why, if you are looking for drug and alcohol rehab in London, you want swift action and admission as soon as possible.
If you live in the city and are close to friends and family, then you may think the natural choice is to undertake alcohol rehab in London. However, there are reasons why it can sometimes be better to travel to rehab centres further away from home. Being away from the stress and negative influences in your life can help with your recovery. In a city like London, there’s a buzzing social scene, which can make it difficult to get away from alcohol and drugs. We have choices of centres throughout the UK.
We understand that a lot of individuals living in cities have stressful, high-powered jobs this is especially the case with London so it’s natural that you may worry about spending time away from the city in one of our rehab programmes, this is why we aim to help you stay connected to your work while you stay with us, although we must stress that your treatment will always take priority.
Those looking for drug and alcohol rehab in London will no doubt be wondering what sort of treatment options are available, Step One Recovery offers a wide range of therapies for drug and alcohol addictions. We have a great team of experienced, qualified doctors, nurses, counsellors and more, all of whom have been involved in the treatment of addiction to harmful substances.
During the admissions process of rehab, you’ll be asked lots of questions about the length and severity of your addiction and whether you’ve attempted rehab before. By doing this, our team can decide what kind of treatment might be best for you, a standard treatment plan with Step 1 Recovery will include a full detoxification, cognitive behavioural therapy, group sessions, one to one counselling plus regular mindfulness exercises such as yoga and reki which can play a vital part in recovery.
The first step in the process will often be a drug or alcohol detox. Many people with addictions find they’re stuck in a cycle of using drugs, so getting your body free from them is often the best start to successful treatment. Because coming off these substances can often cause withdrawal symptoms, our team will be on hand to offer help and support during this time, as well as medication to help with the symptoms if necessary.
Private rehab is often the best choice for individuals who are looking for a treatment centre. NHS waiting lists are long in many areas, including London, so once you’ve got the motivation to get into recovery from addiction, the last thing you want is a delay while you wait for a space. Step One Recovery can offer treatment throughout the UK, often at short notice, and by choosing residential rehab you can be sure of comfortable, homely surroundings rather than a clinical setting.
Waiting for a place in rehab can have a number of negative effects. During this time, the person with the addiction could find they suffer from a health problem caused by substance abuse or find their mental health worsening during this time. Delaying treatment also means they can end up losing money, damaging relationships or causing problems in their personal life, and they may start using larger quantities of alcohol or drugs during this time. Therefore, as soon as they show willing to get into rehab, the sooner a place needs to be found. That’s when Step One Recovery can help.
When you search for drug and alcohol rehab in London, you’ll notice there are both inpatient and outpatient options available, and you may be wondering about the difference between the two. Outpatient rehab treatment means that you attend a clinic during the day, but return to your own home at night, and the programme is generally spread over several weeks. While some people like this approach, others find that it doesn’t work for them. The problem is, there’s always the temptation to buy alcohol or drugs in the evening and being close to family or friends can mean you fall back into negative patterns.
Inpatient clinics offer the chance to get away from your day to day environment, giving you a better chance of success, especially in the early days of your drug treatment. It means that you can undertake intensive treatment, with stays from just a week long, allowing you to get on with your life. Step One Recovery have one of the finest rehab clinics offering luxury accommodation, so you can feel like you’ve had a break from day to day life, and return feeling refreshed.
Step One Recovery offers a wide range of aftercare options to keep you healthy and happy once you’ve left our rehab centre. Our treatment services don’t stop once you walk out the door, we offer excellent aftercare that’s tailored to your needs.
With the use of regular meetings via phone call or face to face we can effectively keep up to date of your recovery progress after leaving the centre. It is in these meetings that any issues you may have been experiencing can be discussed with our team able to provide insights and expertise on the best way to deal with any issues that may cause a potential relapse.
At Step One Recovery we heavily invest ourselves in the health and well being of our clients this is why during aftercare you will have access to our team at all times so whenever you feel like giving up you can simply call our team who are available 24/7 and they can help get you back on track.
The first 12 months in recovery are often the hardest and this is why having the support there at all times during this period is absolutely essential for individuals that are working towards a long term recovery from addiction.
