Substances such as drugs and alcohol are commonly abused across the UK. In Chelmsford, the situation is no different; individuals, families and communities in the county are all negatively affected by substance abuse. The good news, however, is that drug and alcohol rehab in Chelmsford is readily available via private clinics, charities, local support groups, local counsellors and the NHS for those that need it.
Recovery.org.uk wants to assure you that, no matter what substance you have been having trouble with, we can help you to find a suitable alcohol or drug rehab in Chelmsford. We help people struggling with the following substances:
Drug and alcohol rehab in Chelmsford is similar to rehab in every other town and city across the UK. It usually consists of a combination of detox and psychotherapeutic treatments provided in an outpatient or inpatient setting.
While not every patient will require a detox, most will, so it is wise to assume that you are going to need to undergo this process before treatment begins. Only those who have been abusing specific illegal substances that have not caused a physical dependence will not need to detox.
When it comes to choosing the ‘best’ rehab in Chelmsford for your situation, we will look at several factors such as the type of substance you have been abusing and how long for, your overall mental and physical health, your commitments at home, and your preferences. We will also ask about your budget to ensure we only ever recommend a clinic that will not stretch your finances.
The term detox derives from the word ‘detoxification’; it is the process that separates the addict from the substance being abused. Before rehab can begin, the individual must have a clear mind and body, and this can only be achieved when all the chemicals and toxins that have built up are removed.
Once the person quits alcohol or drugs, the body will naturally begin to expel all remaining traces of the chemicals, but this can result in a number of withdrawal symptoms that can end up being quite unpleasant. Detox tends to last between seven and ten days, during which time symptoms will peak before subsiding.
In a supervised detox facility, patients will stay for the duration of the detox and will be closely supervised and monitored by fully trained medical staff. If it is deemed appropriate, the patient may be prescribed medication to help prevent or treat symptoms.
Once a programme of detox has been completed, treatment can begin in an outpatient or inpatient facility. In most cases, we will recommend a private residential clinic for our clients as we believe that the treatment approach and ethos of the private clinic are far superior to anything else.
However, we understand that this type of care may not be appropriate for every client; in this situation, we will explore other avenues of treatment to suit the needs of the individual. That said, we want to explain why we believe that residential care is the best option.
Since private clinics deal with nothing but addiction and its related issues, they are free to concentrate all their resources in this one area. They work hard to help those affected by drug and alcohol addiction, and the facilities work in close collaboration with family members too.
Private clinics allow the addict to enter the facility for a period of between six and eight weeks, during which time he or she will have no access to temptations, and there will be no distractions from the outside world. This means the affected individual can fully focus on his or her recovery and nothing else.
Another benefit is the fact that private clinics offer bespoke treatment plans for every single patient. They understand that when it comes to treating addiction, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. A combination of traditional and alternative therapies will be used and be based on the needs of the individual. This flexible approach allows for changes to be made as and when necessary.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of treatment in a private residential clinic is the fact that there is very rarely a waiting time for treatment to begin as there is with free providers. It is understandable that there are long waiting times with providers such as the NHS, charities and local support groups that offer their services for free. These organisations rely on funding and have limited spaces available. In addition, they are heavily subscribed. With a private clinic, patients can usually be admitted within 24-48 hours after their initial enquiry.
There are various types of rehab centres available in Chelmsford, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
If you have been struggling with addiction for a long time, we can help. Now is the perfect time to get your life back on track with alcohol or drug rehab in Chelmsford. All you need to do is make the call and we can begin working on your behalf immediately.
We often find that many people with addiction are afraid to reach out for help for fear of what others will think of them. There is still an enormous amount of stigma attached to addiction, and this often causes those affected to feel embarrassed or ashamed of their situation.
Recovery.org.uk wants to remind you that addiction is an illness, just as cancer is an illness. You did not choose to be affected by addiction any more than someone with cancer chose to have their illness. However, just as someone with cancer requires treatment to overcome his or her illness, so too does a person with addiction.
To have a chance at happiness, you will need to break the cycle of addiction, and it is usually the case that this can only be done with professional help. Let us help you to find a suitable provider for your needs today. Call us via our 24-hour helpline now.
