Our drug and alcohol rehab Bedfordshire is unique in that it is not based all in one residential and treatment building. The rehab centre is located in a beautiful rural setting with all of the rooms dedicated to different therapies and group sessions. The area around the Bedfordshire rehab clinic is surrounded by woodland and countryside, offering you peace and seclusion during your drug or alcohol recovery. The accommodation, on the other hand, is in two separate country homes with quiet gardens and comfortable private and living rooms. This gives the Bedfordshire rehab centre accommodation a homely and personalised feel. It also means that there is plenty of space in the rehab centre, dedicated to the different addiction treatments for both individual therapy and group sessions.
Before therapy and counselling, treatment involves detoxification. Whether you’re looking to detox from alcohol or drugs, having trained staff around to care for you while you get sober and clean can provide invaluable help to a person working through treatment. Not only will you be supported, but the staff will help guide you in the healthiest way possible through your therapy and recovery, giving you all the tools and coping skills you will need to live a sober, healthy and of course Happy Life!.
The Bedfordshire rehab centre has its own dedicated centre for addiction treatment along with two residential country houses for accommodation. At these houses, there are all private bedrooms for the patient’s comfort during recovery, executive rooms with their own private bathrooms are also available. There are also comfortable sitting rooms and quiet surrounding gardens, ideal for peace and reflection. The Bedfordshire rehab clinic houses are fully catered, and the cooks will prepare all the meals with the patient’s preferences and nutrition plan in mind. Drug and alcohol addiction can lead us to neglect our health and nutrition, a situation that will need to be remedied during therapy and recovery.
The Bedfordshire rehab programme offers a wide range of therapies in its dedicated addiction clinic. Upon admission, patients will be assessed by the centre’s detox doctor who will provide a custom-designed therapy treatment plan. Detox from alcohol and drugs can be challenging, but a medical detox plan will help to ease the symptoms and give you the best chance of getting sober and clean. This plan will be tailored to the individual, their addiction and their drive to succeed in becoming sober and healthy again. The Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre has the advantage of taking only twelve people in at once; this means that the service is highly personalised, and you will have a custom-made experience in detox treatment and rehabilitation therapy.
During detoxification, patients may have to tackle withdrawal symptoms. The medical team will closely monitor your condition and offer alcohol detox medication to ease the otherwise painful withdrawal.
At our recommended residential alcohol rehab programmes you can expect to find therapies such as:
It has been our experience that this integrated and highly structured approach helps our patients to maintain and sustain their long-term sobriety, bringing them a much higher quality of life.
The Bedfordshire rehab programme offers various types of therapy techniques including dialectical behavioural therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and holistic therapy as part of the recovery process in order to help patients to understand and remedy the damaging associations they have with drugs or alcohol. The treatments are split into both individual sessions with a qualified counsellor to deal with your own personal issues and group therapy sessions. Connecting and communicating about your drug or alcohol addiction ensures patients understand they are not alone and they find support amongst others facing the same challenges as they are. Therapy workshops are also available at the rehab clinic, to provide a deeper understanding of alcohol and drug addiction and learn how to deal with the kinds of issues that arise before and during recovery.
The Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre has its own dedicated centre for addiction treatment along with two residential country houses for accommodation. At these houses, there are all private bedrooms for the patient’s comfort during recovery, executive rooms with their own private bathrooms are also available. There are also comfortable sitting rooms and quiet surrounding gardens, ideal for peace and reflection. The Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre houses are fully catered, and the cooks will prepare all the meals with the patient’s preferences and nutrition plan in mind. Drug and alcohol addiction can lead us to neglect our health and nutrition, a situation that will need to be remedied during therapy and recovery.
The Bedfordshire rehab programme also emphasises the experience of family and loved ones during a patient’s recovery from their addiction. Family therapy and counselling help patients and those they are close to in communicating their concerns, challenges and hopes for the future. The support of those around you can help ease the recovery process and the return to normal life. In addition to this during therapy, family visits are arranged for patients at the weekend in order to keep in touch and support each other. It is worth noting that these services are generally available after the first week or medical detox period.
The Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre offers patients access to physical therapy in a nearby health and fitness club with a fitness suite, pool and jacuzzi. This can be relaxing and therapeutic during the initial detoxification period and help with the removal of toxins from drug and alcohol addiction. Depending on your individual treatment, a nutrition and exercise plan may also be part of your therapy and recovery. Exercise and the creation of new positive habits are vital for those looking to live a healthy and sober new lifestyle.
One of the most important lifestyle changes when recovering from alcohol and drug addiction is prioritising your personal health again. Caring about your body and personal wellbeing gives you a new lease of life and helps to keep you clean and sober. In order to help you get back into positive habits, the Bedfordshire rehab programme offers the patient the opportunity to use a local gym and wellness centre. In the centre, there is also the option of massage, aromatherapy and acupuncture treatment, all of which can be highly beneficial for alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
Addiction affects people in different ways, and the length of your stay will depend on the nature of your own addiction. In the Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre, the initial alcohol detox timeline is from several days up to several weeks. After that, you will begin the process of therapy and recovery from your drug or alcohol addiction which can take several weeks. Your departure will be discussed and agreed upon with your counsellor at the Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre and will depend on the state of your drug or alcohol addiction recovery.
Our Bedfordshire rehab centre allows patients to bring mobile phones and if necessary computers. However, the use of mobiles and computers is restricted during the first week’s stay. This usually is the detoxification period which can be challenging and continuing to use phones, and the internet can be distracting and lead to issues with your addiction recovery. The rehabilitation centre has internet access; however, the Bedfordshire rehab clinic houses do not have Wi-Fi. There is also a house phone available to patients if needed.
Families of those in recovery for addiction are encouraged to visit, according to a patient’s wishes. In the Bedfordshire rehabilitation centre, visits are usually weekends when there is the option of spending the afternoon locally with your family and loved ones. The visitation days are times when you would otherwise have a free-time day and so will not miss any treatment or group therapy shares.
