Finding the rehab with the right treatment for your addiction is vitally important and for those trying to choose a drug and alcohol rehab, Somerset has a comprehensive program.
The rehab in Somerset offers programmes for both drug and alcohol addiction in its residential clinic. The idyllic location remains central enough for those travelling from outside of the county. The staff are a robust team of carers, counsellors and medical professionals to ensure your every need is fulfilled during your rehab.
The secretive nature of drug and alcohol misuse can make it hard to decide if you or a loved one need rehab. Denial is sadly a huge problem in addiction but if you experience or notice any of the following then you should reach out to us for help finding a rehab.
The first step in rehab is the biggest and once you have decided you will find taking things day by day is the easiest method. In fact, this idea runs through much of the way we approach addiction treatment – one step at a time. Admission is simple and there are various options for getting to the rehab in Somerset.
If you can make your way safely yourself by public transport, then you can be picked up by sober transport. For those who cannot do this, we recommend a trusted friend or family member who supports your recovery bring you to the rehab. They can stay with you when you are being admitted offering moral support.
The first people you meet will be the in-house detox doctor and counsellors. They will help you to start on a medical detox and treatment plan. You don’t need to decide much about treatment at this time, but it is good to let them know if you have anything specific in mind.
During detox you will have medications to ease withdrawal symptoms. This will keep you comfortable and help with rest and recovery both physically and mentally. The medications are given at your discretion and include anything from stomach cramp treatment to antidepressants. All the prescribed medicines in rehab are non-addictive as most residents have a predisposition to substance dependence.
Towards the end of your detox, you can start with rehab therapy. This is designed to identify why you have been abusing alcohol or drugs. CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) involves talking about your experiences and the patterns of behaviour that lead you to drink or take drugs.
Many who suffer from addiction find themselves in a spiralling cycle of negative thoughts and actions. If you can find the root cause, then it is possible to work your way out of this permanently. The goal of therapy is to prepare you to continue your recovery journey when you leave rehab.
The staff at the rehab in Somerset will provide you with the tools you need to stay on track. A post-rehab plan will give you a solid idea of what groups you will join, how you will find further counselling and help build your support network in case of relapse. They will also provide a year of free aftercare as part of your stay. This means you will always have someone to talk to when you need it and you can attend meetings at the rehab in-person or online.
Free rehab in the U.K. is almost always outpatient and done in the community. For this type of treatment, you will remain at home or with friends or family while you recover. Although it is not quite as effective as inpatient rehab with the right support you can make use of the resources available to you to escape from addiction.
