Do you live in Gloucestershire? Do you feel you are trapped in a ‘downward’ spiral due to your drug and alcohol addiction? Do you feel an overwhelming sense of hopelessness?
If you said ‘yes’ to these questions, it’s likely you have hit ‘rock bottom’. This means your drug or alcohol addiction is causing more pain in your life than it is enjoyment. This typically means it’s time to seek out treatment so that you can continue to live your life without drugs and alcohol.
However, it’s likely that you are unsure how to proceed with seeking out drug or alcohol addiction treatment. After all, there seems to be an abundance of treatment options. It’s often unclear how to proceed. When you seek out treatment, you will be bombarded with terms such as ‘detox’, ‘rehab’, ‘home detox’, ‘inpatient treatment’, ‘outpatient treatment’ and more. It’s not surprising many people give up on seeking treatment due to the confusion this creates.
Rehab 4 Alcoholism was set up to assist you through the minefield of treatment options in Gloucestershire. When you contact us on 0800 111 4108, we conduct a short assessment so we can advise you on how to proceed with your treatment. We factor in the severity of your addiction, your family and work situation and the suitability of treatment centres in Gloucestershire.
Following the completion of this assessment, we shall email you our treatment recommendations. With your permission, we will also forward your details onto treatment centres who we feel are best suited to helping you defeat your addiction to drugs or alcohol.
In Gloucestershire, there exist many forms of addiction treatment. However, treatment is generally either administered on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Inpatient treatment is also known as residential treatment. This form of treatment requires you to live in the treatment centre for around twenty-eight days.
In contrast, outpatient treatment does not require you to uproot yourself from your home environment. In fact, some outpatient programmes take place within the confines of your home. This is known as home detoxification. However, outpatient treatment generally requires you to attend a treatment clinic at least once a week so you can engage in counselling and therapy sessions.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we are a strong advocate of inpatient/residential treatment. Why? Because when you choose to undergo residential treatment, you are separated from your drug or alcohol ‘using’ environment. This ensures the risk of relapse isn’t a factor when you undergo treatment on a residential basis. Fortunately, Gloucestershire does not have a shortage of residential treatment providers, and we shall assist you in selecting the best treatment provider for your needs.
When you enter a residential treatment provider, you will be assessed by a psychiatrist. This psychiatrist generally prescribes you with medication. This medication helps you detox without suffering from severe withdrawal symptoms. The duration of your detox programme depends on the severity of your addiction, and also the substance you are addicted to. If you are addicted to alcohol, your detox programme will require around 5-7 days to complete.
Whilst you detox, you will be able to engage with the therapeutic aspect of your treatment. Here, you will engage with group and individual therapy sessions. These sessions allow you to examine the emotional and mental reasons that cause you to resort to drug and alcohol addiction.
Therapy provides you with the mental resources you will need to break free from your addiction for good. Therapy also helps you overcome any resistance you may have for change. Whilst a detoxification programme allows you to ‘get into’ recovery, therapy generally allows you to ‘stay in’ recovery once you have attained your early abstinence goals.
