Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Bentley
When an individual is struggling with addiction, no matter where they may be from or what their situation may be, it is in their best interest to begin some form of rehabilitation as soon as possible.
Rehabilitation is the process of overcoming a drug addiction, using a variety of different treatment styles, therapy, and other techniques to help the individual cope with their addiction in the long term, even without support from a dedicated addiction recovery service provider.
The recovery programmes found in most residential rehab centres, especially those suitable for individuals seeking care through drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley, are highly beneficial in terms of helping the individual to begin rehabilitation.
In the UK, we are extremely lucky in that most of our dedicated rehab centres are fully staffed, plentiful in resources, and fitted with modern and updated facilities.
In some countries which are less fortunate, the lack of these qualities severely impacts the individual’s recovery, making rehabilitation a far longer and less efficient journey.
Any individual can struggle with a drug addiction or a behavioural addiction; it is a non-discriminatory disease, so if you may be struggling or know someone else who is, it is important to start considering different options for drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley.

Rehabilitation is not designed to completely cure individuals with addiction as this is not a possibility. Instead, through a specialised and tailored programme, individuals will learn to create their own coping mechanisms, working with their own unique triggers and cravings.
Through drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley recommended by Rehab Recovery, individuals will work toward the overall goal of abstinence.
This refers to the individual completely stopping their usage of the substance they may be addicted to, starting with a thorough detoxification process – this is covered in greater detail later in the article.
Abstinence has been shown to be a far more effective approach to rehabilitation as it requires the individual to change their lifestyle, removing the distractions and negative consequences that arise as a result of regular and heavy substance use.
In addition, it is a far better approach to take concerning the individual’s physical health.
Some substances can cause serious and long-lasting health issues when the individual consumes them for a long period of time, meaning that reducing this usage may not be enough to rectify their health issues.
Instead, individuals are encouraged to undergo a controlled detox, slowly reducing their usage over a period of 7-14 days (or more in specific cases) to begin a sober lifestyle.

If you are struggling with addiction, or if you suspect that someone you know may be struggling, then Rehab Recovery is here to help.
As part of our service, we can offer a quick evaluation to see whether you may be suitable for residential care as well as giving an idea as to the types of treatment that may be most suitable once you have entered a residential centre.
These evaluations are informal, so it is nothing to worry about and can generally feel more like a conversation.
All of these conversations are confidential and there is no expectation to commit to drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley.
Below is a summary of the areas that you may be asked about:
- Individual substance use – this is, arguably, the most important area that you will be asked about. In this section, individuals will be asked about which substance they are addicted to, how much they consume, and how often. They will also be asked about the history of their addiction i.e., is it a long-term or a short-term issue?
- Individual’s health – this area covers both the individual’s physical and mental health. Does the individual have a record of any health issues, pre and post becoming addicted? If the individual has any mental health issues, this is important to mention as it will help determine what types of therapy may be most suitable in the future; therapy makes up a massive part of the rehabilitative process.
- Individual’s current environment – this is where the individual lives and who they live with. If the individual lives with someone who is also addicted, or if they were the person who instigated their addiction, then this can be considered especially dangerous, and further support may be provided.

Typically the first of three stages of drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley, detoxification is also one of the most important.
Not only is it an essential stage of care for many addictions before an individual can begin specialised treatments and therapies, but it is also an opportunity for the individual to work on their physical health before they begin working on their mental health.
A detox is a chance for individuals to remove the harmful chemicals in the body i.e., the substance they have been consuming or by-products that have built up as a result of the individual’s addiction.
Depending on the substance, the individual may go through many different detoxification procedures.
For example, withdrawing from opiates is extremely complex and can come with many risks – one of the reasons for multiple different options and medical interventions when it comes to detoxing from opiates.
Each of these have varying successes, and many of these are still being researched and debated.
On the other end of the scale, cannabis does not require any form of detox whatsoever.
It is possible to go ‘cold turkey’ with cannabis, meaning that the individual can stop usage completely and feel relatively mild side effects compared to opiates, alcohol, and long-term addictions to other substances.
Make sure that your detox is safe and effective with the help of a drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley – call us on 0800 088 66 86
What Forms of Treatment Can Residential Rehab Provide You With
As part of everyday life in a residential centre, individuals are likely to experience a variety of different addiction treatment programmes and associated therapies.
As every individual is different, their treatment programmes will be too. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to rehabilitative care – every individual has different needs and requirements, leading to differing schedules, therapy types, and experiences while in inpatient care.
However, there are some types of treatment that most individuals will experience or hear of during their time in rehab.
This is because these therapies and alternative treatments are some of the most effective when it comes to treating addiction and its associated issues.
During residential drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley, individuals may experience:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – one of the most well-known types of therapy, this therapy works by helping the individual change negative thought patterns or associations in their mind, assisting them in creating their own coping mechanisms and management techniques
- Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) – similar to CBT, this type of therapy works in the same way, but has a stronger focus on the emotional aspects of these cognitions, making it more suitable for individuals who may be more emotion-based or feel emotions more strongly
- Holistic therapies – including such activities as art, music, yoga, meditation, and horse-riding, these holistic treatments take the positive elements of these activities and combine them with therapy, encouraging individuals to outlet their thoughts and feelings into the activity, helping them make new realisations
- Motivational interviewing (MI) – this type of therapy works by asking the individual positive questions about themselves, helping them self-discover and create new thought patterns that they can use in the future, perhaps when dealing with triggers and cravings. This also often comes alongside motivational enhancement therapy
- Family drug support – designed for individuals who may have people around them who are struggling as a result of their loved one’s addiction, this type of therapy acts as a form of intervention to help rectify familial or relationship issues and invite new changes into their lives together

Is Rehab on the NHS?
It is essential to understand there is no such thing as an ‘NHS rehab.’ Only private rehabs are available; nevertheless, they have spaces saved by those whom the NHS funds.
Due to tragic cuts to the drug and alcohol services in the UK, places funded by the NHS are distinctly harder to obtain.
There are long waiting lists and a set of criteria you have to meet to apply for funding.
Be that as it may, if you require help, it is available. You or your loved one can visit your local GP, who can point you toward drug and alcohol services.
There are several charity and NHS-run recovery services operating near Bentley, including:
1. Hampshire CAMHS
Address: Brambly’s Drive, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 8UN
Telephone: 0300 304 0800
2. Turning Point Hampshire

Rediscover the Beauty of Life Beyond Addiction
This journey to recovery does not end after an individual leaves drug and alcohol rehab in Bentley, as there are many aftercare support systems in place.
Especially for individuals leaving residential centres, the thought of returning home or to a standard lifestyle again can be incredibly daunting – this is why Rehab Recovery offers aftercare services to all, even if they may be able to access these services through their residential centre or service provider.
In many cases, individuals opt to join addiction networking groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous, as these are great opportunities to share and learn from other people’s experiences, as well as meet individuals who may be in similar situations and beginning 12-step meetings and programmes to track progress.
Additionally, individuals may also choose to continue their rehabilitative learning, engaging in programmes such as SMART Recovery.
This is a combination of CBT and MI, though it is in a far more independent setting and can be supported by regular meetings with an addiction support officer or a member of staff in the individual’s past residential treatment centre.
