Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Lancaster
Drug and alcohol rehabs have different treatment programmes; however, those programmes can be summarised as assessment, detoxification, therapy and/or counselling and aftercare.
Step 1: Assessment
As the name suggests, assessment is about assessing your addiction i.e., type, extent, and effective treatments. We facilitate FREE phone advice. When you decide to take our programme, you will be assessed by doctors and counsellors who focus on recommending custom treatment.
Although most addiction cases require almost the same treatment programme, we can customise treatment to match your needs. For instance, if you have a very busy schedule, we can recommend an outpatient programme. However, we strongly suggest that you take time out from work or any other activities to focus on your healing.
Step 2: Detox
Every addict must go through a detox programme to get rid of the effects of drugs on their bodies. Prolonged drug use is dangerous. It destroys your body, altering how vital organs like the brain work. This is precisely why addicts have problems controlling their urges. Our detox programmes are designed to give you back control.
Every facility we work with has doctors on standby to help you deal with any withdrawal symptoms you get. Detox is easy when you have a team of professionals monitoring you.
That’s what ADT Healthcare offers.
Step 3: Counselling and holistic therapy
Once your body is free of drugs or alcohol, you are ready to be equipped with the information you need to understand addiction, learn from your past, and make changes to prevent relapse. Our programmes come with individual counselling sessions that are conducted by qualified addiction counsellors some of who are ex-addicts.
We also encourage group counselling to help you learn from others who have had experiences like yours.
Counselling equips you will all the information you need to avoid drugs and alcohol for life. You’ll also learn life skills that will help you chase your dreams.
Besides counselling, you’ll also go through holistic therapies like yoga, meditation, acupuncture, etc. that address any mental issues. Holistic therapies are meant to help you take charge of your own mind. You’ll also enjoy some physical health benefits.
Part of the reason why it’s hard to cope with urges to take drugs or alcohol if you haven’t learned effective ways of dealing with such urges. When you train your mind, everything you do serves you!
Step 4: Aftercare
ADT Healthcare doesn’t leave patients to struggle with recovery on their own. In the unlikeliest chance that you have problems coping with life after treatment, we can recommend FREE aftercare. We collaborate with facilities offering conclusive programs that guarantee a high success rate.
We have helped thousands of addicts in Lancaster, and neighbouring environs start new lives.
However, recovery can be challenging. You can still have problems coping with life even after going through extensive counselling and holistic therapy sessions. If that’s the case, you can return weekly for a year to get FREE counselling or any other assistance you need.
To avoid waiting until you relapse for you to take advantage of our treatment programme, we encourage all patients to visit as soon as they feel the need to do so. You should also find support networks in your neighbourhoods, such as Alcoholic Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
Such groups which are embedded in your area can help you avoid local addiction triggers. It’s also important to accept that recovery is not an event but an ongoing struggle. You must take every day at a time and focus on staying sober today. Sobriety may appear challenging if you view it as a big task.
The importance of staying away from old friends and environments that remind you of addiction can’t also be over-emphasised. Such people and environments are bound to make your recovery path harder.
It’s better to avoid them altogether. If possible, change all your influences on people and places that inspire positive change. The temptation will always be there. However, you can reduce it by controlling your environment and the people you interact with.
Getting sober starts with a small decision. Call us today. ADT Healthcare will handle everything for you. You don’t have to know everything! Just choose a good drug & alcohol rehab in Lancaster from the onset.
