Do you live in Bedfordshire and require treatment for alcoholism? Are you unsure of what lies ahead? You may have heard about going to rehab, but the actual prospect of going is something that fills you with fear. Due to the media, there are many misconceptions about going to rehab. For instance, because you heard that celebrities go to rehab, you may believe it's something you will not be able to afford. We are here to tell you these beliefs about rehab are not true at all.
In fact, there exists a wide variety of treatment clinics in Bedfordshire to suit all budgets and tastes. These treatment clinics are run by charities, the NHS and private companies. Each facility usually specialises in treating one or two specific addiction. When you contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we conduct an initial telephone assessment.
The information you share with us during this assessment allows us to restrict our treatment recommendations to only those providers that specialise in treating your particular addiction. This saves you a great amount of time because our advice eliminates the need for you to carry out your own research. Our advice also means there is no risk in you selecting a treatment provider that’s poorly suited to treating your addiction and any dual diagnosis that’s also an issue.
When you go to rehab, the programme you will be offered will be tailored to your needs. To determine these needs, you will be assessed before your treatment begins. Given that going to rehab is really a form of medical procedure, there is no such concept as an ‘average rehab experience’. Notwithstanding this fact, some established treatments will feature in most rehab programmes. For instance, the majority of rehab clinics offer an initial detox programme. This allows you to navigate withdrawal symptoms without the risk of suffering from a seizure or delirium tremens. You will also benefit from individual and group therapy sessions that seek to address the mental causes of alcoholism.
Group therapy sessions are counsellor-led. During group sessions, you will listen to your peers discuss their struggles with addiction. You will also be given the opportunity to discuss your own struggles with addiction. Peer learning is a major objective of group therapy sessions. A provocative discussion is followed by a feedback discussion conducted by the rest of the group. The group attempts to derive solutions to individual members’ problems.
Individual therapy sessions take place in private with a key worker. This provides a more intimate and private setting for you to discuss your issues without the rest of the group’s knowledge. This is particularly important for clients who may have suffered from any form of trauma that they may feel uncomfortable discussing in group settings. Group and individual therapy sessions typically take place each day throughout your rehab programme. Therapy sessions must be continuously repeated in order to cement their effectiveness.
Another benefit of attending a residential rehab clinic in Bedfordshire is that you will be given ample time to work through your issues with addiction. Because you will remain in the rehab clinic for the duration of your programme, you will be entirely removed from temptation and stress that might otherwise threaten your early sobriety. Furthermore, when you leave the rehab clinic, you will also benefit from aftercare sessions taking place at least once a week.
Remaining in recovery is not a simple undertaking. When you are new to recovery, you will experience powerful cravings to return to alcohol in order to ease life’s stresses and strains. Aftercare sessions will give you the willpower to continue with your recovery without giving into the cravings. You will also be put in touch with a local support group in Bedfordshire. This is typically Alcoholics Anonymous or SMART Recovery.
