Most people in County Antrim will never have a problem with substances such as alcohol. They will drink it in moderation and will never have to worry about it becoming a negative force in their lives. However, there are many others who do struggle with alcohol and who need alcohol rehab in County Antrim. Their reliance on this substance has begun to take over their lives to the point where nothing else matters. Without help, they are likely to continue in this vein and their problems will get worse.
Here at Recovery.org.uk, we help individuals access both alcohol and drug rehab in County Antrim. We know that while many people have already reached out for help, countless others have not done so for various reasons. It may be that they do not know where to go for help or that they are under the impression that they do not need professional assistance as they do not actually have a problem.
Denial often stops those with a drug or alcohol addiction from reaching out for help. With so much stigma attached to addiction, it is not hard to see why some individuals are unable to face the truth of their situation. Negative stereotyping of the illness can prevent people from speaking up and asking for help. They are afraid of what others will think of them.
Due to this negative stereotyping, many individuals cannot see themselves as addicts either. They have been brought up to believe that addicts are bad people from the ‘wrong part of town’, so they therefore cannot comprehend the fact that they could personally be affected.
It is important to be aware that addiction is an illness and one that does not discriminate. It does not affect those from a specific location or persons from a particular background. No matter how old you are, what your gender is or how much money you have, you can be affected by addiction if you use mood-altering substances such as drugs, alcohol or prescription medication. And if you are affected by addiction, you will more than likely require drug or alcohol rehab in County Antrim or wherever else it is that you happen to live in the UK.

When overcoming any type of substance addiction, a programme of detox is usually required. Detox is an important part of the recovery process as it deals with the physical side of the illness. To break the bond between the substance abuser and the substance, detox is necessary.
Detox begins when the individual quits the substance to which he or she was abusing. Depending on the substance, withdrawal symptoms may appear after around six hours and can continue for many days. Symptoms will peak before subsiding, and the whole process typically takes between seven and ten days.
Withdrawal symptoms will be mild, moderate or severe, with most people experiencing nothing more than mild to moderate symptoms that could include:
However, there are a number of more severe symptoms including hallucinations, convulsions, paranoid delusions and seizures. In rare cases, withdrawal symptoms can end up being life-threatening; for that reason, we always advise clients to detox in a supervised facility.
There are various types of rehab centres available in County Antrim, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
In all parts of the UK, rehab is provided by various organisations including private clinics, charities, local support groups and the NHS; it is no different in County Antrim. Most programmes are either inpatient or outpatient based and here at Recovery.org.uk, we can help you to access a programme that will best suit your needs.
It is important to remember that the best chance for long-term success is a fully comprehensive programme of recovery that includes detox, rehabilitation and aftercare. Many people believe that they do not require alcohol or drug rehab in County Antrim after they complete detox, but this is very rarely the case.
In order to overcome both the physical and psychological issues associated with addiction, it is necessary for detox to be followed by rehab. We can help you to find a suitable rehab programme based on your needs and circumstances.
With an inpatient treatment programme, you will have constant access to care and support during your 6-8 week stay in the rehab clinic. An intensive programme will be followed, which means you will spend most of your time in counselling or therapy sessions.
Inpatient programmes are most often provided by private clinics. There are rarely waiting times, and this is beneficial as it means the individual can access treatment within hours of making the decision to get help. With free services provided by charities and the NHS, there is often a long waiting time and many addicts will change their mind about treatment while they are waiting.
While it is our belief that inpatient treatment offers the best chance for a successful recovery, we understand that not everyone can stay in a residential clinic for a period of up to eight weeks. There are many excellent outpatient programmes available too, and where appropriate, Recovery.org.uk will refer you to the one that most suits your individual requirements.
Outpatient programmes vary in length depending on the provider and the number of treatment hours attended each week. It is often the case that the patient will be required to attend therapy and counselling sessions on a daily basis for the first few weeks before this is reduced to a few times per week. Programmes can last anywhere from a few months to a year.
Once rehab finishes, it is important to continue working on your recovery. The most vulnerable time for recovering addicts is said to be the first twelve months after treatment. You will probably find that your rehab provider also offers aftercare for the first year; and if this is so, it is a good idea to take them up on it. With careful maintenance, you can avoid a relapse and go on to have a fulfilled and healthy sober life.
