Are you seeking advice for drug or alcohol addiction in Hampshire? Perhaps this advice is for yourself or for a loved one. If you or a loved one are experiencing any form of drug or alcohol addiction, know that help is only a telephone call away.
Perhaps you are struggling to handle this situation correctly because you are unsure what to do. If this is the case, know that many people have experienced this same issue before, and many services exist in Hampshire to help you reach a satisfactory conclusion to an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The reality is that thousands of people die each year due to substance misuse. Typically, the ‘addict’ will begin to feel ill and experience a range of negative psychological issues such as depression and anxiety. The addict may also act in an overly aggressive or even violent manner towards loved ones.
Furthermore, an addiction to one substance may develop into an addiction to other substances. This makes life increasingly difficult for all those who surround the person with the addiction. In time, this situation becomes untenable for both the person with the addiction and close family members and friends.
Addiction is also accompanied by weight loss and poor nutrition. This may cause a variety of health problems, as well as a weakened immune system. Furthermore, people who suffer from an addiction are also likely to engage in risqué and dangerous behaviour, or associate with unsavoury and unpredictable people who may assault you or your loved ones.
If you live in Hampshire and you or your loved one is affected by the above issues, please contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism today for help and assistance. The first step is to complete our free telephone assessment. Here, we determine the severity and nature of the addiction concerned. Following the completion of this assessment, the second step is to refer you or your loved one to an addiction treatment centre that’s best suited to the facts at hand.
Treatment typically begins with a detoxification programme. Here, your or loved one will benefit from a drug or alcohol withdrawal programme in a safe and medically controlled environment. Depending on the nature of the addiction, a medically assisted detox ranges in duration between five and fifteen days. The exact duration of you or your loved one’s detox programme will not be known until the programme begins. This is because each person is unique and it is impossible to give an exact duration so early in you or your loved one’s treatment.
All of the treatment centres we work within Hampshire are utterly secure. This means you or your loved one cannot just ‘leave’ the treatment centre once your treatment programme begins. This ensures ‘relapse’ does not occur during the treatment programme. Addiction treatment may be difficult at times, and some may decide to ‘walk out’ during the programme. When you book your treatment through Rehab 4 Alcoholism, you are assured this is not a risk because of the secure nature of the treatment programmes we offer.
During the treatment programme, patients benefit from a range of addiction-specific therapies. Therapy sessions are led by experienced addiction counsellors. We offer a range of therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and holistic therapies. These therapies help you or your loved one fully rehabilitate and learn to ‘live life’ without drugs and alcohol.
All of our partner treatment centres also offer an extended aftercare programme. This typically gives you the right to return to the rehab centre for ‘top-up’ sessions for around 12-months following the conclusion of your treatment programme.
