All treatment providers we recommend are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or Care Inspectorate.
There were 23 people who died drug-related deaths in Bournemouth in 2019.
Contrary to what many might suggest, addiction stems from the brain.
Some people have a physical predisposition whereby neural pathways are geared towards developing addiction.
Also, drugs and alcohol change neural pathways and brain structure.
This is relevant in how unhealthy habits develop.
A dual diagnosis is where a person has two mental health conditions such as addiction to drugs or alcohol as well as an underlying condition such as depression or anxiety.
Mental health conditions are highly correlated with addiction.
Lots of people turn to alcohol and various other substances when they’re struggling with uncomfortable mental symptoms.
This can obviously lead on to addiction where people do this regularly.
Likewise, people who use alcohol and substances can develop mental health problems due to how substances impact thoughts and emotions.
On entering rehab, people are assessed.
Here, it is identified whether there is a dual diagnosis.
This would make your rehabilitation experience better because staff would ensure you get support to address both conditions.
If you’re thinking about going to rehab, it’s beneficial to think about what the point of it is.
Rehab is ultimately a place that will treat you with the goal of becoming sober.
It will also provide you with the skills to maintain abstinence in the future.
Granted it can be challenging, but it is possible if you use the techniques you learn.
What rehab is not for is providing harm reduction advice, needle exchanges, or supporting you to continue using substances.
Rehab is the ultimate environment to give you the best pathway to recovery.
There are many benefits to entering a drug & alcohol rehab in Bournemouth.
Private rehabs offer inpatient services, which is where you stay overnight and have an intensive treatment approach.
This can be much more helpful than outpatient services for those with severe addictions.
Private rehab clinics offer specialist treatment, especially for addiction.
This means all your needs have been considered, as people in similar situations are being treated and are recovering every single day.
The staff use the most effective approaches to help you to heal.
Private clinics offer residential environments where you stay for around a month.
This gives you time and space to get through withdrawal, to learn and to practice new behaviours.
You get quality focused time on you, your personal circumstances, and are in a healthy environment all day and night.
NHS-funded rehab services predominantly offer outpatient treatments.
This is where you live at home, but go to a clinic for a group session or counselling.
They serve the whole community.
People go for support around harm reduction, to try and quit, and for needle exchanges.
Sadly, these options are stretched and the support offered is usually limited.

There is an admissions process when you enter rehab.
It includes being assessed around addiction and various aspects of your life so that staff understand how to treat you most effectively.
The ASAM Criteria will mean a discussion around:
The other assessment you’ll undergo is the DSM-5, which is how staff find out how severe your addiction is.
Addictions in this assessment tend to be described as mild, moderate or severe.

Once staff have this information in-hand, they’ll know what treatment recommendations to make so that your recovery gets off to the best start.
There are ways of telling whether you have an alcohol use disorder.
This is addressed when you enter rehab using the AUDIT.
Here, you’ll be scored according to how you answer questions.
The higher you score, the more serious the addiction and increased likelihood of dependency.
Questions focus on:
You’ll be aware of some of the signs to look out for.
If you’re drinking more and more and can’t face the day without alcohol, or think about it almost all the time, then it’s likely you have a problem.
One of the most obvious ways of telling is by looking at alcohol withdrawal symptoms, which include:
Rehab is essential where alcohol dependency has developed in order to keep you safe.
Withdrawal can be fatal at its most extreme.
A medically overseen detox by a doctor will mean you’re as comfortable as possible.
After detox, it’s advisable to stay a rehab to embark on psychological and alternative therapies.
This is how you gain the skills to remain abstinent.
Firstly, you can ask a professional, such as a GP, to meet you and your family member.
In this meeting you will explain your worries and what you hope can happen going forward.
The professional will explain treatment options.
The CRAFT method is also used by families to support their loved one and is very effective at improving family dynamics.
Its goal is to focus on positive behaviours and to encourage healthy behaviours from your loved one.

If you have a cannabis addiction, you might be surprised at the idea that it’s grown to the point that you need to go to rehab.
Interestingly, cannabis isn’t always considered dangerous, especially as it’s becoming increasingly used in the medical world.
Granted, there are medicinal properties that make some strains of cannabis helpful for some illnesses, but this isn’t applicable across the board.
Strains of THC-heavy cannabis have become really strong in recent years and are linked to psychosis and schizophrenia.

At rehab, you’ll learn techniques to get you through cravings.
You’ll also start to develop new interests that bring new value and meaning to your life.
Many enter a drug & alcohol rehab in Bournemouth for cocaine use.
This drug is commonly used nowadays amongst people from all backgrounds.
While it’s seen as a party drug or a bit of fun, users tend to ignore the fact it’s a class A drug and has great potential to create addiction.
Sadly, many don’t realise that it can cause serious mental health issues linked to anxiety and suicidal ideation, as well as physical problems.
The toxins from cocaine build up in the body and increase risks of illnesses and diseases.
At rehab, you’ll receive psychological treatments.
This might include work around improving mood through various different forms of therapies.
You’ll learn more about the effects of the substance on your mind and body, and this can be a powerful tool at keeping you motivated to heal.

After detox, it’s recommended that you remain at rehab another three to four weeks.
This way you’ll get the benefits of full immersion into psychological approaches to healing the addiction.
When this happens, you have more chances of staying sober in the long-term.
