About the alcohol and drug rehab Bedfordshire
The drug rehab Bedfordshire clinic is unique in that it is not based all in one residential and treatment building. The rehab centre is located in a beautiful rural setting with all of the rooms dedicated to different treatments and group sessions. The area around the Bedfordshire rehab clinic is surrounded by woodland and countryside, offering you peace and seclusion during your drug or alcohol recovery. The accommodation, on the other hand, is in two separate country homes with quiet gardens and comfortable private and living rooms. This gives the Bedfordshire drug rehab centre accommodation a homely and personalized feel. It also means that there is plenty of space in the rehab centre, dedicated to the different drug addiction treatments for both individual therapy and group sessions.
Rehab Treatment in the Bedfordshire rehab clinic
The Bedfordshire rehab centre offers a wide range of therapies in its dedicated addiction clinic. Upon admission, clients will be assessed by the centre’s detox doctor who will provide a custom-designed treatment plan. Detox from alcohol and drugs can be challenging, but a medical detox plan will help to ease the symptoms and give you the best chance of getting sober and clean. This plan will be tailored to the individual, their addiction and their drive to succeed in becoming sober and healthy again. The Bedfordshire rehab centre has the advantage of taking only twelve people in at once; this means that the service is highly personalized, and you will have a custom-made experience in drug detox treatment and rehabilitation.
The Bedfordshire rehab centre offers Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as part of the recovery process in order to help clients to understand and remedy the damaging associations they have with drugs or alcohol. The treatments are split into both individual sessions with a qualified counsellor to deal with your own personal issues and group sessions. Connecting and communicating about your drug or alcohol addiction helps clients to understand they are not alone and find support amongst others facing the same challenges as they are. Workshops are also available at the rehab clinic, to provide a deeper understanding of alcohol and drug addiction and learn how to deal with the kinds of issues that arise before and during recovery.
The Bedfordshire rehab clinic also emphasizes the experience of family and loved ones during clients’ recovery from their addiction. Family therapy and counselling help clients and those they are close to in communicating their concerns, challenges and hopes for the future. The support of those around you can help ease the recovery process and the return to normal life. In addition to this family, visits are arranged for clients at the weekend in order to keep in touch and support each other. It is worth noting that these services are normally available after the first week or medical drug detox period.
One of the most important lifestyle changes when recovering from alcohol and drug addiction is prioritizing your personal health again. Caring about your body and personal wellbeing gives you a new lease of life and helps to keep you clean and sober. In order to help you get back into positive habits, the drug rehab Bedfordshire clinic offers the client the opportunity to use a local gym and wellness centre. In the centre, there is also the option of massage, aromatherapy and acupuncture treatment, all of which can be highly beneficial for alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
Facilities in the alcohol and drug rehab in Bedfordshire
The Bedfordshire rehab centre has its own dedicated centre for addiction treatment along with two residential country houses for accommodation. At these houses, there are all private bedrooms for the client’s comfort during recovery, executive rooms with their own private bathrooms are also available. There are also comfortable sitting rooms and quiet surrounding gardens, ideal for peace and reflection. The Bedfordshire rehab clinic houses are fully catered, and the cooks will prepare all the meals with the client’s preferences and nutrition plan in mind.

This can be relaxing and therapeutic during the initial detox period and help with the removal of toxins from drug and alcohol addiction. Depending on your individual treatment, a nutrition and exercise plan may also be part of your recovery. Exercise and the creation of new positive habits are vital for those looking to live a healthy and sober new lifestyle.
Frequently asked questions about the drug rehab Bedfordshire centre.
How long will I stay in a rehab centre?
Addiction affects people in different ways, and the length of your stay will depend on the nature of your own addiction. In the Bedfordshire rehab centre, the initial program of medical detox can take from several days up to several weeks. After that, you will begin the process of recovery from your drug or alcohol addiction which can take several months. Your departure will be discussed and agreed upon with your counsellor at the Bedfordshire rehab centre and will depend on the state of your drug or alcohol addiction recovery.
Can I use my phone and WIFI in a rehab centre?
The Bedfordshire rehab centre allows clients to bring mobile phones and if necessary computers. However, the use of mobiles and computers is restricted during the first week’s stay. This is normally the detox period which can be challenging and continuing to use phones, and the internet can be distracting and lead to issues with your addiction recovery. The rehab clinic has internet access; however, the Bedfordshire drug rehab clinic houses do not have Wi-Fi. There is also a house phone available to clients if needed.
Can my family visit me in a rehab clinic?
Families of those in recovery for addiction are encouraged to visit, according to client’s wishes. In the Bedfordshire, rehab clinic visits are usually weekends when there is the option of spending the afternoon locally with your family and loved ones. The visitation days are times when you would otherwise have a free-time day and so will not miss any treatment or group shares.
How do I remain abstinent after rehab?
When leaving rehab, a person who has battled addiction must carry on the good fight and stay clean and sober, especially after coming so far.
While in rehab, you were advised on relapse prevention and the possible triggers which could bring you back to addiction. You were shown how to deal with cravings, and the clinic will have highlighted the practices you could use to help you refrain from drugs or alcohol.
However, dealing with addiction requires continual on-going care. Where, once you leave the facility, you can receive all the help you require to re-adjust to everyday life, deal with what life throws at you and continue to grow. And, most importantly, live a clean and sober life.
For every addiction, there are recovery programs and support groups to help those looking to kick their habits. Generally speaking, these programs can be grouped into one of two big buckets: those following a 12-step approach, and those that do not. Which you choose will be a matter of personal preference.
Abstinence is the end goal for alcohol and drug addiction – the last stage of the process. Abstinence involves the continued maintenance of sobriety and requires commitment following the end of rehab.
The key to maintaining sobriety is finding a network of support for your on-going recovery. This can come from friends or family, or through external support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous.
Whilst location is an important factor for all of us, please understand, that recovery from addiction is a journey, and a commitment and the initial foundations should not be compromised.

It’s been proven that this benefits patients as it restricts you from coming into contact with things or people that trigger your addiction. As a result, it allows the people there to carry out detox treatment without worrying about relapses.
We strongly advise that you give us a call if you’re having trouble figuring out which option is best for you. We’ll talk to you on the phone to help come up with a treatment plan that benefits you the most. As a result, you’ll soon know the best course of action to kick your addiction.

Residential stays vary from between 7-28 days depending on the specifics of your circumstances and historical usage. e.g. An average alcohol detox may last 7 days, with a further 2-3 weeks in the therapeutic program to resolve the psycho-social and behavioural aspects of addiction. As above, most experience the best outcomes and lasting long term sobriety following a minimum 28-day residential stay
Medication can include replacement drugs such as lorazepam or phenobarbital, which are administered in tapering doses to help with alcohol withdrawals. Drugs such as Naltrexone, Disulfiram or Acamprosate can help prevent a return to alcohol use.
