Residential Alcohol And Drug Rehab Guide For The West Midlands

You can overcome your addiction to drugs and alcohol with the right help. If you’re based in Essex and have been finding it hard to put an end to your substance misuse, treatment options are available to help you through the worst of this turbulent phase.

Withdrawal symptoms can make recovery unbearable and seem almost impossible, but these can be managed appropriately. Overall, you should have peace of mind that addiction is treatable.

Doctors and care specialists at rehab centres are equipped with the skill-set to help you achieve recovery. Using a combination of medically supervised detox, pharmacology and therapy, you’ll come to better understand your addiction and learn coping skills to maintain abstinence long after rehab is complete.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

A few tips to help you choose the right rehab centre include:

Location: Look for a rehab centre in a suitable location. Most patients benefit from receiving treatment in a serene environment, cut off from the noise and bustle of the city.

Certification: UK rehab centres must be registered with the Care Quality Commission. This is a key factor that determines the quality of treatment offered.

Types and range of therapies: Some therapy techniques are specifically designed to treat defined mental health issues and addictions. Subsequently, a good rehab centre offers a range of therapy models geared towards treating your addiction and dual diagnoses.

Licensing of staff members: Medical staff should be licensed to treat your addiction. They should possess credentials that ensure you will receive a high quality of care.
