Success Rates

Living with drug and alcohol addiction is difficult, which is why the best place for you to be is a rehab centre. This is because a rehab centre is a specialised medical facility that can provide you with the treatments and support you will need to overcome your addiction.

At Nova Recovery we understand that it can be difficult to put your faith in a system you may not fully understand.

We want you to know that this fear you are feeling is very common and, in many ways, is the first step in your journey to long-term recovery.

The main reason rehab works for helping people overcome addictions is because it can provide a safe environment that teaches you how to manage your addiction in the long run and deal with the short-term effects of recovery.

Technically speaking, you could work towards recovery on your own. However, it has been proven that you will be much more successful if you receive help from a rehab facility.

According to the Department Of Healths Addiction Centre, as of 2012, the success rate for people using rehab centres across the UK is between 60 and 80%.

This is a drastic improvement from 20 years ago, which only saw a 47% recovery rate.

Why Go To Rehab?

Every year new techniques and treatments are discovered and developed. So as time goes on, the rehab services available in private drug and alcohol rehab centres across the UK are only getting better and better at providing help for people living with an addiction.

It has also been proven that it is much safer to work towards long-term recovery in a rehab centre because you can be medically monitored during your treatments to prevent your body from going into shock due to the withdrawal symptoms.

While overcoming an addiction may appear as simple as quitting the use of drugs or alcohol, it is, in fact, much more difficult.

But in a rehab centre, the hardest part of avoiding temptation during this delicate time is taking care of yourself.

So while you could, in theory, work through the treatments alone, it will make your recovery process much longer and much, much harder to do.

A successful recovery is one that keeps you safe at all times. Contact us on 01475 303998 to find out more.

Alcohol Rehab Success Rates

Alcohol is one of the most common addictions and has a 50% success rate of people recovering.

It is also a common addiction to experience a relapse with, and this is fine.

There are ways you can reduce your risk for a relapse, either through alcohol rehab centre you attend or by joining a support group.

Alcoholics Anonymous is able to help and support you before or after your treatments at an alcohol rehab centre.

They do this by following the 12-step recovery process, which very simply is designed to help you to come to terms with your addiction and learn how to manage it.

Like many addictions, alcohol addiction is never really cured. Instead, addiction is a chronic condition that will likely be with you for the rest of your life. But you can manage it so that its power over you and your everyday life lessens.

Alcoholics Anonymous is able to provide support for when you are experiencing cravings and need help.

They do this through a sponsorship program that will pair you up with someone who has been in recovery much longer than you have. They will be able to help take you down and centre you away from whatever has triggered your cravings.

Cocaine Rehab Success Rates

Cocaine is a highly addictive drug that causes a powerful yet short-lived high.

Because of how short the high and intense the high is, many people struggling with a cocaine addiction use it very regularly.

Unfortunately, this leads to 24% of people who have completed their rehabilitation treatments relapsing within a week of leaving the drug rehab centre.

But out of these people, 18% will return for further treatment at the rehab centre.

It is important to focus on the positive of the 76% of people who do avoid relapse and can carry on to long-term recovery.

The journey to long-term recovery is not one straight forwards, linear process. Sometimes some people just need a bit more time in order to make the treatments stick.

It is very common to need to return to rehab for further treatments. This can often follow a relapse or just an inability to manage on your own.

There is no shame in needing to go to rehab multiple times. What matters is that you continue to try and achieve a healthier drug-free lifestyle.

Heroin Rehab Success Rates

It could be argued that Heroin is the most addictive drug available. This is because it has been found that while most drug addictions have a 60% chance of causing a relapse, heroin addicts have a 90% chance.

Heroin often only needs to be used once to form an addiction due to how powerful the effects are and its ability to change your brain chemistry. It causes you to experience immense pleasure but also causes nasty withdrawal symptoms should you avoid it for too long.

Heroin addiction is not something you can overcome on your own. Its effects on you are just too powerful, and the withdrawal symptoms are too dangerous.

Suppose you were to experience the withdrawal symptoms alone. In that case, you could be putting your life at risk by experiencing dehydration, delirium, hallucinations and seizures.

To overcome heroin addiction, you need help from a rehab centre that can provide you with drug detox and therapy to address the underlining condition behind your drug use.

Relapse Prevention

At Nova Recovery, we aim to help you avoid a relapse in any way we can.

We do with by providing all of our patients with a relapse prevention plan that is designed specifically for them to help them avoid triggers for their cravings. It also includes tools and tricks they can use to relapse from their substance abuse with healthier coping mechanisms.

We also provide up to a year of aftercare services that can monitor their progress and help them stay on top of their addiction.

Rehab is the best environment to overcome drug and alcohol addiction and is the most successful form of treatment.
