Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment in Hertfordshire
Thanks to ADT Healthcare’s free and confidential addiction helpline, it’s no longer necessary to face addiction alone or without professional help. We exist to help you locate drug and alcohol rehab in Hertfordshire that’s right for your needs no matter what these needs may be.
As a free drug and alcohol referral service, we are able to offer tailored advice that’s 100% unbiased and independent. We recommend rehab treatment solely on the basis that particular treatment is right for your needs.
All drug and alcohol rehabs we recommend in Hertfordshire offer proven evidence-based treatment that will help you establish long-lasting recovery. Also, treatment is not generic and all rehabs we recommend in Hertfordshire will tailor their treatment offerings to your unique circumstances.
We are able to recommend both inpatient and outpatient rehabs in Hertfordshire. If you require a clinical detox, it’s necessary that you opt for inpatient rehab due to the complex nature of your care needs that will arise during your detox treatment.
Why contact ADT Healthcare?
ADT Healthcare does not fulfil the actual rehab treatment you seek. Instead, we exist to assess your needs over the telephone and then make appropriate drug and alcohol rehab recommendations based on these identified needs.
Locating suitable rehab is tiresome at the best of time. When you are battling addiction, the need to research suitable rehabs is perhaps one of the reasons why you avoid going to rehab in the first place. After all, when you suffer from addiction, it’s unlikely you will be able to even think straight, let alone be able to carry out complex research into suitable drug and alcohol rehabs.
Alternatively, you could be the loved one of a person experiencing addiction, and you do not feel you have the expertise to choose suitable rehab clinics on your loved one’s behalf.
In both situations, your immediate needs will be best suited by contacting ADT Healthcare for free on 0800 138 0722. We understand the exact strengths and weaknesses of each rehab clinic in Hertfordshire, and once you have completed our free telephone assessment, we will be able to inform you which rehabs should be avoided and which rehabs will be suited to helping you tackle your own unique addiction problems.
Whilst we are able to recommend outpatient addiction treatment, it’s likely that your needs will be better served by a residential drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Hertfordshire. Here, you will undertake addiction treatment in a distraction-free environment with zero relapse-risk. A residential rehab also includes pharmacotherapy in the form of a medically assisted detox.
Perhaps the key advantage of attending a residential rehab clinic in Hertfordshire is the many therapy and counselling sessions you will attend over the course of 28-days. These sessions help to give you the tools that are needed to establish a lifestyle free from both drugs and alcohol.
Once you return home following the conclusion of rehab treatment, life still has the potential to go wrong, and when life does turn negative, it’s vitally important that you have gained the skill set that allows you to navigate through this negativity without relapsing. By attending a residential rehab in Hertfordshire, you will be given enough time to develop this skillset so you are able to sustain your recovery even when the world appears to be falling around you.
What happens once drug and alcohol rehab in Hertfordshire begins?
On the first day of your rehab, you will begin by undertaking a medical assessment with a doctor. The doctor will prescribe medications to help you detox without experiencing advanced and potentially lethal withdrawal symptoms. You will be given plenty of time to sleep and rest, and you will not be expected to attend therapy and counselling sessions whilst you recover.
It’s likely you will feel discomfort for around 4-5 days. Following this brief period, you will begin to regain the strength that will allow you to integrate into therapy and counselling sessions. Whilst the detox process helps you to recover physically from your addiction, counselling and therapy help you to recover from a psychological and mental perspective.
It’s important to note that addiction is overwhelmingly a mental disorder that just happens to also affect you from a physical perspective too. Thus, when it comes to addiction treatment, the mental aspect of treatment must be given parity of esteem with the physical aspect of treatment.
Below, we list some of the therapies that are commonly on offer at drug and alcohol rehab clinics in Hertfordshire:
- Group and one-to-one therapy
- 12-step introduction
- Educational workshops
- Group activities
- Holistic therapies
- Healthy eating workshops
- Family therapy
- Mindfulness & other meditation techniques
- Dialectical behavioural therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
These therapies will help you understand why you are using drugs and alcohol as a crutch to solve your mental health issues. You will also begin to develop a skill set that will allow you to avoid relapse and thus live happily in your recovery for many years to come.
Specifically, you will be taught how to live in the present moment. Instead of living with one foot in the past and one foot in the future, you will be taught how to stop this endless and needless cycle of worry and regret. You will be shown how to shift your awareness to the present moment using many proven and evidence-based techniques.
You will also be taught how to regulate your thoughts and emotions more effectively. This will help you avoid mental states that are known to lead to relapse.
What type of support will I receive once I’ve left drug and alcohol rehab?
Understandably, you may be concerned that you will require ongoing support once you have left rehab. It’s true that around 60% of people leaving rehab will experience a relapse during their initial 12-months in recovery. It’s important to note that relapse is not the end of the world, and if it does occur, you should treat this as a learning experience that will help you to strengthen your recovery in the future.
It’s equally important to not accept relapse as an inevitability because it’s equally true that many people do leave rehab without experiencing a relapse. However, it’s important for rehab clinics to put in place safeguards to minimise the risk of relapse as much as possible. This is achieved by offering structured and regular aftercare sessions on an outpatient basis.
The vast majority of aftercare sessions take the form of group therapy sessions. Here, you will benefit by joining a large alumnus of people in recovery. You will reflect on your life in recovery and the challenges you meet. You will discover that many of the challenges you meet in early recovery are highly common amongst the people in the group. Discussing these challenges with others will help you and the group create solutions that help you collectively navigate through these challenges successfully.
