Searching for treatment for alcohol addiction can seem like a bit of a minefield if you don’t really know what you’re looking for. Whilst searching online, you’ll find an overwhelming number of results for drug and alcohol rehab services. There’s a huge range of options available, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages.

Finding the right drug and alcohol rehab
The first option is to receive drug and alcohol treatment with a free local health service such as the NHS. This sounds appealing to some people because of the low cost, however, it’s actually the least effective way to treat your addiction. The low success rate of these free services is generally down to the fact that most people will have to wait weeks, even months, to receive their treatment for alcohol addiction.
When they do receive their addiction treatment, it’ll be a generic programme to follow which hasn’t been tailored to suit the individual meaning it’s unlikely to be an effective rehabilitation.
At the other end of the spectrum is private drug and alcohol rehab which is what we provide at our rehabilitation centre in Abaraman. You’ll benefit from a fully personalised addiction treatment programme inclusive of physical, psychological, and well-being therapies, all delivered by a motivated team of addiction specialists who will guide you along every step of the way.
Our exceptional team deliver evidence-based therapies to provide you with a holistic approach to your addiction treatment, thus giving you the best opportunity to succeed.
You can either receive addiction treatment as an inpatient or an outpatient. The difference is that as an outpatient, you’ll be going in each day to receive your treatment for drug addiction then returning home each night. Whereas an inpatient will remain overnight at the drug and alcohol rehab for the duration of their treatment.
Staying at home during your treatment may sound like a better idea, or at least a more comforting idea, it isn’t necessarily the best way for you to achieve a long-term recovery. You’ll see much greater results as an inpatient whilst you’re staying in a recovery focused environment with the constant support of addiction experts.
Addiction treatment options at Nova Recovery
It’s crucial to your long-term recovery from addiction that you benefit from a wide choice of addiction treatment therapies to target each aspect of your condition. The best results come from a tailored treatment programme where the time has been taken to get to know you and then design an effective programme for you to follow.
We believe in a holistic approach to treatment for alcohol addiction at our alcohol rehab, so you’ll receive a well-balanced mix of physical, psychological, and well-being therapies. Many people perceive therapy to only be talking therapies such as counselling. Counselling can be delivered in a variety of ways, either on a one-to-one basis, in a group setting or even with your family. Whilst counselling is an important part of recovery, it’s not the only option and it may not be suitable for your unique situation.
Another psychological therapy which we regularly recommend is cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT) which has a great success rate in aiding rehabilitation. CBT helps you to learn how to manage your feelings and how to change your perception of certain things.
Other psychological therapies include drug or alcohol relapse prevention, stress management, motivational interviewing, mediation therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy.
These therapies which focus on breaking your psychological connection to the substance are then combined with therapies which focus on improving your well-being whilst you undergo addiction treatment. These could include self-help sessions, massage, yoga, mindfulness, low-level laser therapy, relaxation and sleep management, art therapy, fitness therapy, and music therapy.
These may sound like unusual ways to aid your rehabilitation, but they’ve proven to be effective, time and time again.
What to expect during a detoxification
Aside from the above therapies, we generally recommend a drug or alcohol detoxification to break your physical connection with alcohol or drugs. We appreciate that going through a detox can be nerve wracking, it’s not expected to be a comfortable process, but it is expected to produce great results in helping you achieve your long-term recovery.
Detoxification is the most effective way to remove the harmful toxins from your body in a safe and controlled setting, allowing you to cleanse both physically and psychologically.
We have a fantastic team of experts who will be there for your 24/7 as you complete your detoxification. This support is particularly required as you begin to experience withdrawal symptoms which are quite common during this process.
Any attempts to detox at home, without the support of a medical team, puts you at high risk of physical and psychological damage which could potentially be life-threatening. Whilst a drug or alcohol detoxification isn’t the most comfortable experience, we believe it’s an integral part of your rehabilitation from drug or alcohol addiction.
Drug and Alcohol rehab FAQs:
What are some physical symptoms of addiction?
A drug or alcohol addiction can impact so many aspects of your life, most significantly your physical health. You may experience nausea and vomiting, fatigue, insomnia, sudden weight changes, slurred speech, memory problems, enlarged or small pupils, and bloodshot eyes. Excessive substance abuse will also leave you at much higher risk of developing diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, and having a stroke.
What are some psychological symptoms of addiction?
As well as significantly affected your physical health, addiction to alcohol or drugs also has a devastating impact on your mental health. You’ll likely experience increased anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, paranoia, bipolarity, loneliness, and mental fatigue. You’re unlikely to want to engage in any social activities or take part in things which you once enjoyed as your addiction take priority.
