Rehab treatment in the Cheshire rehab centre
The Cheshire rehab clinic is fully residential and able to offer both primary and secondary care to its residents. The primary objective of entry to the rehab centre is to remove the addictive substances from the body. Many people suffering from addiction are concerned about the physical symptoms of detoxing from alcohol or drugs, perhaps having tried to go ‘cold turkey’ before. The drug and alcohol rehab in Cheshire offers a better, safer alternative to straight withdrawal, in the form of medical detox. Prescribed medicines, specific to the addiction, can be given to clients to make the detox process as comfortable and easy as possible. In consultation with those who are newly admitted, a detox doctor and counsellor will make a medical detox and recovery plan tailored to each individual.
These tailored plans will continue into the recovery phase and be revised and updated as residents progress. The Cheshire rehab centre is able to offer dual diagnosis and so is particularly beneficial to those who are suffering from not only addiction but also associated mental health issues. The treatment of those who are suffering from both of these issues is Dialectic Behaviour Therapy. The root of this therapy is in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), one of the best-known treatment methods in addiction circles. CBT helps those suffering from addiction to identify and re-shape the thought patterns and feelings that lead them to abuse their bodies and minds with addictive substances. Dialectic Behaviour Therapy addresses not only these issues but similar destructive patterns that lead to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
One of the key factors in the recovery of mental health and embarking on freedom from addiction is a strong support network. The drug and alcohol rehab in Cheshire offers both one-on-one and group therapy in order to build this network and encourage the sharing, and mutual support system tried and tested by the AA and NA to great success. Spending time with others who are also suffering from similar issues can ease the feelings of loneliness and help with healthy relationship building. For this reason, many of the staff at the Cheshire rehab clinic are people who have also suffered from addiction and chosen to dedicate their lives to helping others.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Cheshire rehab centre
How long will I stay in a rehab centre?
Primary treatment including a medical detox can take around a week to two weeks in the Cheshire rehab centre. Once this initial period has passed the process of addressing the deeper issues that led towards addiction and any mental health issues can be explored. This can be thought of as the period of fixing the foundations once the addictive substance has been removed from the equation. This can take from several weeks to months, and the suggested length of stay in the rehab clinic will be discussed with residents in conjunction with their counsellors.
Can I use my phone in a rehab centre?
The Cheshire rehab clinic tries to emphasise the social side of addiction recovery, keeping in contact with loved ones can be very important during such a challenging time. It is important however that residents are focussed on their recovery and do not take part in any communication that might be detrimental to their recovery. This is especially important during the initial detox period when the use of the internet and phones are discouraged.
Can my family visit me in a rehab centre?
In order to stay connected with those outside of the rehab clinic families and loved ones are encouraged to visit regularly. Separation from family and friends can be difficult, and contact with those who care about us is very important. Each Sunday the drug and alcohol rehab in Cheshire offers a family program where counsellors will spend time, if desired, with those in recovery and their families. These sessions not only invest friends and family in residents’ recovery but also eases the transition back into daily life once the individual’s recovery is complete and they are ready to leave the rehab centre.
