For many people living in Weston-super-Mare, drug and alcohol abuse is a very real problem. These substances are blighting their lives and leading to problems with their health, relationships and finances. However, substance abuse also affects the wider community. Violent crime and substance-related hospital admissions are placing a huge burden on the economy, and this has a knock-on effect for everyone. It is important that drug and alcohol rehab in Weston-super-Mare is available for those who need it as this will help to reduce the damage caused to so many people.
There are certainly plenty of options when it comes to alcohol and drug rehab in Weston-super-Mare, however. Addiction services are provided by the NHS, private clinics, local support groups and charity organisations. Here at Recovery.org.uk, we are working hard to help individuals in the area and other parts of the country to access the most suitable treatment provider for their requirements.
We understand that it can be tough to find the right provider for your needs when you may not know exactly what your treatment requirements are. By calling our 24-hour helpline now, we can assess your illness to determine how serious it is. This assessment will also provide us with vital information about your overall health as this can affect the type of treatment you are given. This assessment is completely free and will help you to have a clearer understanding of what you are dealing with and what your needs are.
Most people who make the decision to get help for addiction will require alcohol or drug rehab in Weston-super-Mare and beyond. However, before rehab can begin, it may be necessary to deal with the physical aspect of the illness, and this is typically addressed with a programme of detoxification.
Detox is the process of separating the substance abuser from the substance to which he or she has become dependent on. It can be a complicated process, and most people will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms. These can include mild to moderate symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, sweating, shaking and mood swings or they can be severe and include seizures, hallucinations and convulsions.
The risk of severe withdrawal symptoms is present for everyone; as such, we always advise clients to detox under the careful supervision of medical professionals in a dedicated facility. We can assist when it comes to finding a suitable detox provider in your area.
Once detox has been completed, it will be time to begin the rehabilitation process and it is this treatment that will address any emotional or psychological issues associated with the addiction. It is important that rehab takes place because failure to engage with this type of treatment will mean that the issues that caused the addiction in the first place will still exist.
During drug or alcohol rehab in Weston-super-Mare, you can expect to receive a variety of psychotherapeutic treatments as well as life skills training and relapse prevention. You will have the choice of an inpatient or outpatient programme – we can help you to find the one that suits you best.
It is our view that inpatient programmes are the best course of action for most patients and there are a number of reasons for this, not least of which is the fact that with inpatient treatment, patients are placed in a distraction-free environment and can focus solely on their recovery. The fact that patients also have access to care and support around the clock is another huge benefit of an inpatient programme.
That said, outpatient programmes are an effective way to overcome addiction as well, particularly for those who are one hundred per cent motivated and committed to their recovery. They are less intensive and take place over a longer period (several months compared to around eight weeks for inpatient treatment), but for those with a strong support network at home, they can be the ideal option.
There are various types of rehab centres available in Weston Super Mare, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
The comfort and security of a residential treatment programme can be something that many recovering addicts are reluctant to leave behind. Many of our clients worry about what will happen to them upon leaving rehab in Weston-super-Mare because of the fear that once back in the real world, all their hard work will be for nothing as they will be unable to stay sober.
It is common and understandable to worry about such things, but we need to point out that you will never be alone when you leave rehab. In addition, you will spend a large part of your time focusing on relapse prevention so you will be well prepared to deal with triggers and temptations that you may face in the real world.
Nevertheless, there will come the point when you have to return to everyday life and go home, and the good news is that aftercare is available and should be a major part of your recovery process. Rehab is never the end of your recovery journey and, because there is currently no cure for addiction, you should be aware that you are going to have to maintain your sobriety for the rest of your life.
Most people who relapse after rehab will do so in the first twelve months, so for that reason, many rehab clinics will provide aftercare for patients for up to a year. Patients also have the option of joining local fellowship support groups, and we strongly advise all our patients to do so.
Local support groups such as Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous can be a vital part of the recovery process. Having access to a group of recovering addicts who are there to motivate and inspire each other can help to keep you on the right track.
