It is heartbreaking to have to watch a loved one fall into addiction. It is difficult to understand how these people can fail to see the mess they are making of their lives. But the addict seems to be almost oblivious to the destruction they cause. Of course, there will be a time when this person will be full of remorse and may even promise to change, but most times they will fail to learn from the experience. It is easy to understand how loved ones can start to despair and even decide to cut this individual out of their lives completely. There are families in Runcorn who find themselves in this situation, and it is never easy. Luckily there is drug and alcoholics support available for families. This is when you give Addiction Helper’s free helpline a call to find out about drug and alcohol rehab in Runcorn.

We will perform a thorough assessment of your situation as well as your personal, work, and financial circumstances in order to give you the most appropriate information on rehab in Runcorn based on your specific needs and requirements.

Does Addiction Affect my Family?

It is often stated that addiction is a family disease. This does not mean that all the members of the family are abusing alcohol or drugs. It just means that each member of this unit can be negatively impacted by the behaviour of an addict in their family – they all suffer. The family usually learns to cope with this situation by adapting maladaptive coping strategies, and this can lead to further dysfunction. It reaches a stage where all members of the family will need help if they are to overcome this problem.

The first step to ending the addiction is usually to get the addict to attend drug counselling or, better still, enter a drug or alcohol treatment centre. This may solve the problem for the substance abuser, but it does not necessarily solve the problems of the rest of the family. This is why, in many situations, it will be necessary to have some support available for each member of this unit. This way the family will be able to adjust and begin to function normally again. Addiction Helper has access to these resources and can refer you to the right people and places to get the support and help that you and the rest of your family need.

What Are My Options for Drug or Alcohol Rehab in Runcorn?

We have access to private clinics, local charities, NHS Services, and other support groups. From this pool of resources, we advise you on the most appropriate rehabs and groups that you can access to get the help that you need in Runcorn. The assessment that we do when we speak to you will guide our conversation. Private clinics could be financially inviable for some individuals, so we will need to know if you are in a position to pay for the treatment. If not, we need to determine if you qualify for government funding as some private clinics accept this form of funding. Alternatively we will need to access the NHS treatment system or charities and get you the help you need through that resource.

Of course, you can also join community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and we will be able to give you the names and contact details of other charities working in the Runcorn area who will also be able to help you.

Can Alcohol or Drug Rehab in Runcorn Help Me?

There are several treatment options available to you in Runcorn. The first, and we highly recommend this course of action, is the inpatient treatment programme model. This means that you will stay at the treatment facility and participate in therapeutic activities and individual counselling. The reason for this is that you are removed from your day-to-day stresses and can focus all your attention on recovery. Your therapy will focus on teaching you new thought patterns, new life skills, and coping mechanisms so that when you go back to ‘real life’, you will be able to deal with the challenges and temptations that life throws at you.

Your second option is outpatient treatment. This option means participating in your therapy and individual counselling sessions during the day before returning home in the evening. The next day you return for further therapy and counselling.

Both these treatment options include a detox period. This is when you withdraw completely from your drug of choice. Detox/withdrawal is necessary to help your body to physically adapt to functioning without the drugs or alcohol it is used to getting. Detox typically takes between 7 and 10 days to complete and we recommend that this phase of your recovery be performed under medical supervision. The physical withdrawal from drugs or alcohol means that you may experience physical discomfort (withdrawals). The medical professional supervising your withdrawal can prescribe medication to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Once you have completed the detox and treatment programmes, you will be discharged from the clinic and ready to face life substance-free. At this juncture, you may need aftercare to help you stay clean and sober for up to a year after completing your treatment programme. Many rehabs offer aftercare free of charge to its patients for this period. You can also join local support groups and community groups of individuals who have had similar experiences to yours to help, advise and guide you through that first year of sobriety. Statistically, if you can stay clean and sober for the twelve months after your treatment, you have a very good chance of not relapsing later on.
