    Drug Alcohol and Rehab in Jordan

    Many people suffering from addiction are scared to seek help for many reasons. They might feel ashamed, they might be suffering from fear of the unknown, or they might not know where to turn.

    Rehab Recovery hopes to help you with all of that. We offer advice, support, interventions, physical and mental health treatments – anything you might need.

    Jordan is a surprisingly good country for drug and alcohol rehab. The National Centre for the Rehabilitation of Addicts opened in 2000.

    There are also two further rehab facilities there, so there’s plenty of support if it’s somewhere you’re looking for treatment.

    Here, we have a further guide to the process of drug and alcohol rehab in Jordan and other areas.

    More specifically, the subjects here will include a few facts and statistics about addiction.

    We will look at the admissions process, the difference between physical and psychological addiction, the detox process, and various kinds of rehab.

    And how to deal with dual diagnoses, different kinds of therapy and counselling and the 12-step approach.

    Addiction facts and statistics

    Books and papers

    Addiction is a mental and physical illness that changes the way your brain works. In 2018 statistics on drug and alcohol addiction in England show how deep this problem has run for several years.

    That year, there were 7,545 admissions to hospitals with drug-related mental and behavioural disorders.

    That same report showed 2,593 registered deaths from drug misuse. That’s without even considering those who’ve suffered from the health impacts of alcoholism.

    The best way to avoid the most severe impacts of drug and/or alcohol addiction is to seek out professional rehab.

    It can take many forms, whether in Jordan or anywhere else. All you need to do is reach out.

    Physical vs psychological addictions

    We’ve already noted that addiction has a physical and a psychological side. Now let’s look at that in a bit more detail.

    Physical addiction is primarily defined by withdrawal symptoms, which often stop people from getting the help that they need.

    These withdrawal symptoms occur at a stage where dependency has developed. This means that your body has become reliant on the substances you’re using or on alcohol.

    Or both, in the case of dual diagnosis, which we’re going to get into a bit later. In treatment, this is avoided via a detox, which can look different for different addictions.

    As a side note, increased tolerance to drugs and/or alcohol is a key sign that this dependence is developing. It might seem like something minor, but it’s absolutely something you need to watch out for.

    On the other side of things, psychological addiction involves mental cravings. This is also an incredibly hard barrier to break down, but you can do it.

    You can recover through drug and alcohol rehab in Jordan or anywhere else, which involves various kinds of therapy and counselling.

    Withdrawal symptoms can change quite a bit based on the severity of your addiction and what you’re addicted to.

    The primary difference will be in the potential withdrawal symptoms and the medication you’ll take.

    In both substance and alcohol withdrawal, your intake will slowly be reduced, usually over a period of about three weeks.

    In the case of alcohol, symptoms will usually pop up within 2 to 6 hours of drinking ceasing, including:

    • Nausea/vomiting
    • Sweating
    • Insomnia
    • A headache
    • Shaking hands

    Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690.

    The detox process for substances

    Although we are using the umbrella term “substances” here, there’s also a huge variety of withdrawal symptoms within drugs.

    For example, drugs like cocaine are known for causing extreme mood elevation, followed by a “crash period”. This results in psychological withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, irritability, and sleeplessness.

    Drugs like heroin, on the other hand, produce a more physical reaction of the kind listed above.

    Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690.

    Rehab for alcoholism and rehab for cocaine

    A vast majority of centres cater for drug and alcohol rehab – but there are a few differences in how they’re treated.

    Detoxes for both cocaine addiction and alcohol addiction, for example, use different medications to help you stay clean.

    Depending on your exact addiction, you’ll also likely see different specialists who know the most about your issues.

    As alcohol is much more present in most people’s lives, it can also be harder to admit that you have a problem.

    This is often a unique challenge for alcohol addiction, meaning it will be more of a focus in your treatment if that is what you’re suffering from.

    Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690.

    Dealing with a dual diagnosis

    As we’ve said here before, addiction is a complex disorder. It often comes with various traumas and mental health issues, and it tends to cause them too. For example, various substances especially are known to cause depression and anxiety.

    On top of that, it’s fairly common to have multiple addictions at once. So it’s common to go into this process with multiple diagnoses, and most centres are equipped to deal with this.

    This might be something you’re worried about going in, so please be reassured that you can heal just as well as someone with one diagnosis.

    Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690.

    How much time will I spend at drug and alcohol rehab in Jordan?


    The time you spend in rehab could depend on various factors, including how severe your addiction is and how well your treatment goes.

    It really could range from a month to a year. If and when you choose to get in touch with Rehab Recovery, this is a question you should discuss.

    But overall, fixating on the time you’re going to spend in recovery isn’t a healthy attitude to go in with.

    Once you know on a practical level how long you’re likely to spend in rehab, you’re better off switching your focus to recovery.

    Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690.

    Kinds of therapy and counselling

    Various kinds of therapy and counselling make up the rehab process. Some of the most significant ones within a majority of treatment plans are:

    • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) – seeks to break down cognitive distortions. These are toxic thinking and behaviour patterns that could be hindering your recovery.
    • Motivational Interviewing –  similar to CBT, motivational interviewing also encourages you to change. In this case, it’s through a series of non-judgmental questions.
    • Dialetical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) – is also similar to CBT but is more driven by emotions. The main focus here is on the processing of those emotions, especially as many addictions link back to emotional trauma.
    • Contingency Management

    It should, however, be noted that different organisations and centres may offer different things. So it would be best if you always did comprehensive research to see what’s on offer so that you can plan around that.

    After you’ve finished, some form of aftercare will also be a part of your treatment plan.

    As such, you’ll continue to receive treatment even after you’ve left residential rehab. Or after you’ve finished your initial rehab stages if you’re participating in outpatient treatment.

    A good relapse prevention plan is also vital to long-term recovery. This is something that should be developed along with the rest of your treatment, with a few important things included:

    The 12-step approach

    You might have heard that a common treatment form is a 12-step approach, which is most associated with alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous groups.

    The twelve steps vary slightly from place to place as the system evolves. However, the backbone of the approach includes:

    1. Admitting that you have a problem and need help – acknowledging that you have a problem is, after all, one of the most important steps. It will lead you to the help you need and put you in the right frame of mind for recovery.

    2. Acceptance of a higher power – please note this doesn’t necessarily have to be a religious connection. It just means looking towards something bigger

    3. Deciding to turn your life around/over to whatever higher power you’ve identified – Again, this links back to our first point. In addition, beyond acknowledging that you have a problem and that you need help, choosing to get that help is also vital.

    4. Identifying your problems whilst looking at how your current behaviour and lifestyle affect yourself and those around you.

    As you’ll have seen previously, this is also a major part of therapy and counselling techniques like CBT and motivational interviewing.

    5. Connecting to that, admitting your wrongs – Looking at where you might have harmed other people will then mean you can start to fix what you might have caused. This will also be freeing for you, as you can start to let it go and move forward.

    6. Accepting the faults you’ve identified and attempting to move forward while letting them go and working on them – This is part of the same process listed above, where you acknowledge everything you want to leave behind and then let it go.

    7. Asking the higher power to help you with recovery goals you feel you can’t achieve alone – No matter what kind you’re going through, rehab is a tough process. You won’t be able to achieve everything alone – this step is all about acknowledging that.

    8. Making a list of people you might have harmed before you started the process – Further to acknowledging damage you might have done before you started rehab, you’ll also need to look into specifics

    9. Making amends to the people on that list, in whatever way you can – As you might have guessed, this is the point where you can start to make it up to anybody you might have hurt. This will obviously take different forms depending on your exact situation, and it might not be possible in some extreme cases. But it can be a very healthy step for all those involved.

    10. Continue to admit where you were wrong, own up to your mistakes and move forward/heal

    11. Discover the plan that the higher power, whatever it is, has for your life – This is possibly something to be considered over a more extended period, but it can make things clearer for many people.

    12. Carry the messages and lessons you’ve learned to others. Continue putting them into practice in your own life as you move forward in your recovery journey. Helping others use what you’ve learned can be a valuable and rewarding experience.
