During rehab, the patient must initially undergo a medically assisted detox programme. This will help your loved one 'into recovery'. This detox programme typically requires 7-10 days to complete.
A detox programme aims to 'wean' patients off alcohol in a controlled and safe manner. Withdrawal symptoms will be closely monitored and treated. Medication is given to patients to help avoid or minimise alcohol-related withdrawal symptoms.
During the detox programme, patients are closely monitored by the rehab centre's in-house clinical team. This team consists of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and support workers. Medications are tapered down during the course of the detox programme. Patients will not be expected to continue to take these medications following the successful completion of the detox programme.
Following the initial detox programme, patients then attend daily therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions include group and individual therapy. Therapy includes CBT, psychotherapy, 12-step work and complementary therapies. Your loved one will also benefit from an extended aftercare programme. Aftercare helps patients remain in recovery for the first 12-months following the completion of residential treatment.
Therapy and counselling sessions aim to arm patients with relapse prevention strategies. Therapies also help patients raise their sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Patients are given the tools to build their confidence so that they may engage in activities that help them achieve happiness without drinking alcohol.
