Your Rehab in Essex
Before your admission to our rehab clinic in Essex, you will have your pre-admission assessment via the telephone. This is to identify how severe your addiction is and for us to gain insight into your mental health and any medical history. We can then admit you to our drug and alcohol rehab treatment centre. Here, you will receive a comprehensive physical and psychological assessment from one of our doctors.
This is to ensure that we have a complete picture of your physical and mental health. Often, people suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction have underlying mental health conditions and this dual diagnosis will require a different course of treatment.
We will also identify the root cause of your addiction, as treating that is essential for long-term recovery. At every point in your recovery, we’ll treat you as an individual and your treatment options will be bespoke.
We will generally recommend that you undergo a residential rehab as part of your treatment with Step One Recovery. This is to allow our clients to step away from often-difficult home life and to relax and immerse themselves in their recovery. It also makes it much easier to stay away from bad influences, which is not as easy to do when being treated on an outpatient basis as the NHS would offer. Rehab is not cheap, but we are fairly priced and there are no hidden costs.
Detox and Recovery from Drug and Alcohol Addiction
After you’ve been fully diagnosed by our specialists, you will need to undergo a detox in order to rid your body of toxins that are left by the excess consumption of drugs and alcohol. This is a difficult part of the treatment and the withdrawal symptoms that follow can be dangerous. Examples of withdrawal symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea and seizures.
This is another benefit of a residential rehab with us â€“ we’ll be able to monitor your progress at all hours of the day. Our medical staff will be able to ensure you’re comfortable and if the withdrawal symptoms are particularly unpleasant, we’ll be able to issue you with prescription medication in order to make the process easier. The medication acts as a sedative in order to minimise the discomfort you’d otherwise experience.
Almost everyone who has a drug and alcohol addiction needs to undergo a detox. It’s not a nice experience, but when completed, you’ll be able to undergo the rest of your treatment. The length of your detox will be dependent on the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction but can vary from 3 to 10 days. Our staff will be by your side for as long as you need help.
A Clean Body and Mind
When your body is clean, we will work on setting your mind free of addiction. Therapy is an important part of your treatment. Our expert staff will work with you on an individual basis as we treat the root cause of your addiction.
Everyone has a different story but statistically, life events or traumatic experiences are the most common reasons for a drug or alcohol addiction developing.
As part of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), we will treat the root cause of your addiction. All too often, a patient undergoes rehab and falls into relapse because they are still unhappy with their life for a multitude of reasons. Step One Recovery won’t allow this â€“ we will identify what has caused your issue and help you to overcome it.
We will also invite you to take part in group therapy sessions. Many people don’t like the idea of sharing their problems with a group, but we believe group therapy to be massively beneficial to your addiction recovery.
This allows you to share your problems with other people who are like you â€“ people who have experienced a drug or alcohol addiction and are trying to prepare themselves for a new start in life. Group therapy allows you to share experiences with others and is an opportunity to learn coping mechanisms. You’ll also be building up a support network for when you return to your normal life from rehab in Essex.
Aftercare in Essex
After your 28-day residential rehab, it will be time for you to return home. You will have been provided with all the tools required to move forwards in your life without drugs and alcohol. We will also provide you with a comprehensive aftercare plan as part of your treatment. As part of this, you’ll be encouraged to join local support groups in Essex to ensure you continue to garner the benefit of your experience and that of other people.
Unfortunately, it is a proven fact that someone who has undergone rehab is at the highest risk of suffering from a relapse in the year immediately following them being discharged. And this is why your secondary care is so important. We need you to stick to our plan and this will help you to live life on your terms, not that of a drug or alcohol addiction.
So please call us right now on +44 (0) 800 012 6006 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you to free yourself of these dark times. We know that the first call is hard, but we can promise you, it all gets easier from there.
