How we can help
There exists a vast number of treatment providers for addiction in Cheshire. This presents you with a number of challenges. Firstly, you may be required to spend a substantial amount of your time researching each treatment provider. This may be to ensure you do not select a poorly suited treatment provider. Secondly, if you do not conduct your research correctly, you may select a provider that’s not particularly suited to solving your unique problems.
To overcome both of these risks, contact Rehab Recovery on 0800 088 66 86. When you contact Rehab Recovery, we begin by determining the particular forms of treatment we feel will result in the best possible outcome. We gather enough information so we can match your needs to specific treatment providers in Cheshire that we feel are best suited to your needs.
The two types of treatment we recommend
Once we match you up to a treatment provider in Cheshire, you must then decide on what basis you will receive your treatment on. Your options include undergoing either residential or outpatient treatment. Residential treatment requires you to live within a treatment clinic for around two to four weeks. Outpatient treatment allows you to receive treatment whist you carry on with your normal activities such as going to work and returning home in the evening.
Residential treatment is best suited to situations where the temptation to continue alcohol or drug use is sufficiently great so that outpatient treatment is likely to result in failure.
How will you know whether to opt for residential or outpatient treatment? The answer to this question is relatively simple, although we insist on conducting an over-the-telephone assessment with you to determine the suitability of each treatment option. Generally, if you lack family assistance or if your family enable your addiction in any way, it’s best for you to attend a residential treatment clinic.
If you’ve attempted outpatient treatment in past but failed, then you will be best advised to receive treatment on a residential basis. In fact, in the vast majority of cases, residential treatment is usually preferable to outpatient treatment alternatives. Why? Because residential treatment means you are removed from all temptations when you receive your detoxification and rehabilitation programme.
Furthermore, residential treatment is typically much more intense than outpatient treatment. For instance, during your residential treatment programme, you can expect to receive a highly structured programme of daily therapy sessions. These sessions seek to treat the underlying emotional causes of your addiction.
Whilst outpatient treatment also seeks to treat the underlying emotional causes of addiction, it does so on a far less intense basis when compared to residential treatment. This usually means patients receiving treatment on a residential basis are far more successful in their recovery efforts compared to those receiving treatment on an outpatient basis.
The initial detoxification process
When you attend a Cheshire rehab clinic, you must begin your treatment by undergoing a detox programme. Here, you will be prescribed medication aiming to reduce powerful withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the severity of your addiction, your detox typically requires between five and fourteen days to complete.
Detoxes involving physically addictive drugs such as alcohol and heroin typically require longer detox periods compared to detoxes involving drugs that are merely psychologically addictive. Psychologically addictive drugs include cocaine, amphetamines and cannabis.
Once your detox programme is complete, you will then be expected to attend group and individual counselling sessions. These sessions make use of effective techniques such as CBT, psychotherapy and 12-step work. Each therapy technique attempts to treat the underlying mental causes of drug and alcohol addiction.
Aftercare treatment in Cheshire
When your rehab and detox programme concludes, you will receive an aftercare and relapse prevention plan. This plan seeks to prevent you from relapsing following the completion of your treatment. If you seek treatment on a residential basis, you will usually be allowed to return to the rehab clinic on an outpatient basis to receive ‘top up’ therapy sessions.
If you pay for your treatment, these sessions are usually offered at no extra cost. Why? Because most rehab clinics realise the importance of aftercare in improving the effectiveness of their treatment on a long-term basis. Since clinics are required to provide statistics on the effectiveness of their treatment, it’s in their interest to offer aftercare, given that aftercare helps to improve these statistics.
