Are you located in Shropshire and need fast access to a private or publically funded rehab clinic? Rehab 4 Alcoholism allows you to discover the addiction treatment provider in Shropshire that’s absolutely perfect for your needs. During rehab, you will attend therapy sessions that rewrite your coping skills so you may live your life without your addiction to alcohol. At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we believe everybody has the right to live life without the chains of alcoholism. When you contact us, we will make that belief a reality.
To achieve this aim, we carry out an initial telephone assessment. Without this assessment, it’s impossible for us to recommend tailored treatment options on your behalf. The assessment determines the severity of your addiction, the existence of any dually diagnosed condition and your personal treatment preferences. We then go about matching this information to specific treatment providers that best cater to your needs in Shropshire.
The goal of all treatment providers we recommend is the achievement of long-term abstinence. The treatment we recommend is not suitable for people who wish to continue to drink socially. We aim to assist people suffering from acute alcoholism. To benefit from our advice, you must ‘get over’ your denial and develop the wish to live your life as a ‘recovering alcoholic’. If you hold abstinence as your overall treatment goal, do not waste any more time by getting in touch with us today on 0800 111 4108.
Defeating addiction over the long term requires vision. You must fill the void caused by your recovery with a variety of tasks and activities. You must also improve your ability to recognise ‘addiction triggers’. These triggers may be emotions such as fear, depression and anxiety. However, addiction triggers may also be physical in nature. This could include exposing to certain people or certain places. During your rehab programme, you will take part in therapy sessions that help you generate ideas for staying busy. Staying busy allows you to avoid relapse triggers.
Therapy sessions you complete during your rehab programme also seek to help you identify thoughts that fuel your addictive behaviour. This process of identifying destructive thoughts and then writing these thoughts with more rational alternatives is known as cognitive behavioural therapy. This form of therapy has existed for well over half a century, and it’s a highly effective method of treating addiction to alcohol. Rehab therapy we recommend in Shropshire generally incorporates a significant element of cognitive and behavioural therapy.
Before you tackle the emotional causes of alcoholism, you will begin your treatment by undertaking a detox programme. A detox programme allows you to stop drinking alcohol without experiencing the notorious withdrawal process. Psychiatrists will assess you upon admission and give you prescription drugs. These drugs are specifically designed to combat alcohol withdrawal syndrome. This allows you to withdraw without the risk of experiencing a fatal seizure or cardiac arrest.
Any ‘breakthrough’ withdrawal symptoms will be closely monitored during your detox programme. If necessary, your dose of prescription drugs will be increased to further combat any residential withdrawal symptoms. Qualified healthcare professionals will monitor your withdrawal symptoms closely throughout the detox programme.
When you attend a rehab clinic in Shropshire, you will also benefit from therapy sessions. These sessions treat the cause of addiction. The cause is generally a hodgepodge of negative emotions. The emotions are usually the result of traumatic experiences or dually diagnosed conditions such as anxiety. Therapy aims to hit the cause of addiction square on. Addiction is merely the symptom of these underlying emotional ailments.
Therapy commonly takes place in group settings. The traditional model of sitting ‘one-to-one’ with a therapist is also employed, but group therapy is generally more fruitful when it comes to addiction treatment. During group therapy sessions, clients interact with each other and attempt to derive actionable solutions for each other’s problems. A qualified counsellor will supervise the group, and offer feedback at all stages of the process.
You will also benefit from a range of holistic and complementary therapy techniques. These therapies focus on emotion management and stress reduction. Examples of holistic therapies include Reiki, reflexology, acupuncture, yoga and mindfulness. Examples of complementary therapies include art therapy and music therapy. Both holistic and complementary therapies support more traditional forms of ‘talking therapies’ such as psychotherapy and CBT.
Once residential treatment concludes, your aftercare programme will begin. Aftercare sessions require you to return to the rehab clinic on a weekly basis for up to fifty-two weeks following the conclusion of residential treatment. Aftercare sessions provide important support when you need it the most. Aftercare helps to strengthen your recovery and thereby allows you to avoid relapse.
