Drug and Alcohol Rehab Liverpool
Rehab Recovery is a free helpline offering you advice on drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detoxification options in Liverpool and the surrounding area. Over the last few years, we’ve helped thousands of individuals across Merseyside break free from addiction to drugs and alcohol, and we are utterly confident in our ability to help you too.
Essentially, we offer you a variety of inpatient/residential treatment options in and around Liverpool. We believe residential treatment is by far the superior option because you are entirely removed from bad influences and ‘addiction triggers’ whilst you undergo your treatment. If you require a ‘barebones’ detox, you should expect to stay in a Liverpool residential rehab centre for at least 7 days.
The benefits of a 28 days rehab programme
However, the duration of your programme may increase to around 28 days should you prefer to opt for a more thorough rehabilitation programme. Generally, the longer you remain in a residential rehab clinic, the better your chances of remaining in recovery without relapse. This is because it takes time for the therapist to help you analyse and diffuse the psychological causes of your addiction.
A barebones detox programme is rarely sufficient in ensuring relapse does not occur, and for this reason, it’s usually necessary for you to dedicate at least two or three weeks into a residential rehab programme. If you do not have this amount of time at your disposal, we shall help you integrate into a mutual support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous upon your return home following the completion of your residential rehabilitation programme.
What happens during a residential rehab programme
When you arrive at a Liverpool rehab clinic, you will initially be assessed by a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist may prescribe you with medication designed to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. Following this assessment, you will consume this medication whilst your body detoxes from drugs or alcohol. During this time, you will receive 24/7 assistance from the rehab centre’s staff.
Since you are entirely removed from drugs and alcohol during this period, the risk of relapse during your rehab programme is essentially non-existent. This is vitally important and ensures your overall rehabilitation programme gets off to a winning start.
Following the completion of your detox programme, you will then be encouraged to attend daily therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions help you overcome the mental causes of drug and alcohol addiction. These causes of addiction are generally referred to as ‘relapse triggers.’ During therapy sessions, you will be taught to identify and overcome these triggers without resorting to drug or alcohol consumption.
You will receive a wide range of therapy techniques. These techniques include holistic therapy, psychotherapy, 12-step work and cognitive behavioural therapy. Together, these therapies give you emotional and mental strength to succeed and cope with life without drug or alcohol consumption.
