Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment in Cornwall
Are you troubled due to your drug and alcohol addiction? Are you ‘sick and tired’ of feeling sick and tired? If so, it’s likely you will benefit from attending a drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Cornwall. Many clinics are offering immediate admission into their care to help you overcome drug and alcohol dependency for good. If you are willing to rebuild your life and start afresh, contact ADT Healthcare today on 0800 138 0722.
Contrary to popular belief, addiction is a disease and not a lifestyle choice. Overcoming addiction requires rehabilitation. You will likely need a full clinical detox. You will also require counselling and therapy to help you recover from a mental perspective. If you suffer from an addiction, it’s vitally important to begin this treatment sooner rather than later. The longer you leave seeking out treatment, the harder it will be to make a full recovery.
All drug and alcohol rehab clinics we recommend in Cornwall offer residential treatment. Here, you will literally eat, sleep and live recovery for a 28-day period. Since treatment takes place in residential settings, you will receive an enhanced level of care that’s impossible to recreate when you undergo outpatient treatment. You will also receive assistance from a community of people, many of whom are themselves living in recovery, having defeated their own addiction to drugs and alcohol in the past.
Many rehabs in Cornwall offer specialised treatment for drug addiction, alcoholism, prescription drug addiction and behavioural addiction. ADT Healthcare understands which particular drug and alcohol rehab clinics will be most suited to your treatment needs, and we determine your needs by conducting an initial telephone assessment. You can begin this assessment today by contacting us on 0800 138 0722.
Will I need to complete a detox?
It’s likely you will require a medical detox. If you are addicted to alcohol or opiates, then the need to undergo a detox is a must.
A detox begins with a medical examination. This typically takes place on the day of your admission into a Cornwall drug and alcohol rehab clinic. A doctor will be happy to prescribe medication that significantly eases withdrawal symptoms. The doctor will also thoroughly review your medical history to ensure the medication you are given does not react with medications you are already prescribed by your local GP.
Whilst you detox, you will be given breathing space to relax and get as much sleep as you require. You won’t be expected to cook your own food because the rehab clinics kitchen team will take care of this for you. A nurse or doctor will check on your progress each hour in case you require a greater dose of medication in order to ease withdrawal symptoms. Medical staff will literally be available to cater to your needs throughout the day and night.
The withdrawal process is never the most enjoyable moment of attending rehab, but staff members will work their hardest to ensure you receive the maximum amount of help and support throughout the entire process. Once you begin to regain your strength, you will then be able to attend daily therapy sessions that aim to tackle the root mental causes of drug and alcohol addiction.
What sort of therapies will I be offered during my rehab programme?
In around 7-days, your detox will be considered completed. You will begin to experience a surge in energy and both your physical and mental wellbeing will have significantly improved. However, it’s important to realise that going to rehab is not merely about detoxing. Addiction is primarily a disease of the mind, and so it’s important to address the mental aspect of addiction before you return home. This is achieved by attending therapy and counselling sessions.
Drug and alcohol rehabs in Cornwall are well-known for offering a range of evidence-based therapies that were specifically designed for treating addiction in all its possible forms. These therapies include one-to-one therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, family therapy, trauma therapy and holistic/complementary therapies.
It’s important not to worry about therapy sessions. You will be slowly integrated into therapy sessions, and you will never be expected to discuss matters that may make you feel uneasy. Every therapy session is therapist-led, and the therapist will help to ensure you are making tangible progress during each and every session.
You will be given a timetable informing you of the various therapy sessions on offer. Your assigned key worker will supervise you in selecting therapy sessions that are well suited to your needs. This ensures your treatment plan is highly personalised and tailored to your needs.
You will benefit from a diverse array of therapies. We feel variety helps to keep monotony and boredom at bay. Each day, you will tackle the root causes of addiction from a slightly different angle for maximum effectiveness. Once you have completed your rehab programme, you will be able to consciously identify negative thinking patterns that give rise to your addictive tendencies. You will also discover your strengths and how you can utilise these strengths to avoid relapse and build on your recovery.
It’s also important to educate you about addiction from a logical viewpoint. To achieve this, you will attend a number of lectures and workshops. Many of these workshops are presented by guest speakers who travel to different rehabs across the country in order to inform clients about the stark realities of addiction.
Group therapy sessions also form a key role in the overall rehabilitation process. During these sessions, you will work together with your peers in discussing your experiences with drug and alcohol addiction. You will benefit from hearing about other’s experience and you and other group members will be able to offer up feedback on these experiences.
Lastly, many drug and alcohol rehabs in Cornwall offer creative therapies such as music therapy and art therapy. These therapies complement traditional talking therapies. Creative therapies are particularly useful for treating people who may suffer from social anxiety because traditional talking therapies may trigger this anxiety.
What happens once I am discharged from rehab in Cornwall?
Upon completion of your residential drug and alcohol rehab in Cornwall, you will immediately gain access to an aftercare programme. Like your rehab programme, your aftercare programme will also be tailored to your needs. Aftercare sessions include a mixture of one-to-one therapy, group therapy, 12-step work, educational workshops and relapse prevention.
Aftercare sessions mean you are not returning to normality without help and support. Your assigned key worker will also be available for an in-person or telephone conference should their input be needed once you have returned home. Getting you into recovery is not the primary goal of drug and alcohol rehabs in Cornwall. Instead, the primary goal is keeping you in recovery once you’ve gotten there.
It is also a good idea to attend Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in Cornwall. Doing so will offer you a free yet highly useful resource of support. These meetings are known as mutual support groups, and the ethos is that of ‘one fellow addict helping another’.
