Alcohol & Drug Rehab in Devon

Accessing addiction rehab will mean that you will no longer be facing your addiction alone. Experts agree that attending residential rehab is the most effective way to treat addiction. The staff at our drug and alcohol rehabs in the Devon area are committed to providing a supportive and safe environment in which you can recover.

What Do Devon Rehabs Offer?

Rehab programmes offer a comprehensive and holistic approach to addiction. Following detox, which usually takes 7 – 10 days, you will begin the therapeutic rehabilitation programme.

Our rehabs have an integrative approach, blending one-to-one counselling and group therapy with the 12 Steps and other holistic approaches. The programme will be tailored to your individual needs and goals.

The Devon residential rehabs create a welcoming atmosphere of acceptance and connection. The therapeutic community of residential rehab will enable you to connect with like-minded peers and encourage each other on a journey of recovery. There is great benefit to having the opportunity to care for each other, it counteracts the isolation that is such a feature of active addiction.

In our rehabs you can ‘work-out’ your ability to be sober, serene, and well. It works like going to the gym. In the same way that working out your arms builds muscle memory when you go to the gym, so working out your ways of thinking and feeling builds neurological memory. In practice this means that living and enjoying life without the use of drugs will become easier and easier.

What Will Detox Be Like?

Detoxing suddenly and without proper medication can be very uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Withdrawal can be a really horrible experience and may include symptoms like:

  • tremors – “the shakes”
  • aching joints
  • sweating
  • mood instability- irritability, depression and anxiety,
  • difficulty sleeping
  • intense obsession with drugs/drink.

Be assured that you will be seen by one of our doctors on the day of your admission. They will be able to prescribe a medical detox for you to help you come off the drugs or alcohol in a safe way. You will be supported 24 hours a day through this process by the counsellors and the support staff. The staff in the Devon area are committed to making the detox process as comfortable and safe as possible for you.

What Will I Learn In Rehab?

Through rehab you will focus on addressing those things that lead you to addiction in the first place and also planning ‘relapse prevention’ to help you say sober in the future. Beyond this core function you will also get to work on those things that hold you back in terms of living the life that you want.

Active addiction often leaves people disconnected from their true selves and from other people. In rehab you will have the opportunity to get well within a therapeutic community of recovering addicts. You will share your experiences with your peers and have the opportunity to invest in each other’s recovery process.

This kind of real connection will allow you to foster mutual empathy and compassion. In rehab you will begin to feel your real emotions again. Without the use of chemicals you will learn to naturally feel peace, joy and inspiration. Through the programme you will shift the focus from the negative in your life to the positive.

Is alcohol a drug?

Alcohol and drug addiction are very similar to one another. The fact that alcohol is legal gives it the illusion of relative safety in comparison to other drugs. But alcohol is considered the most dangerous of all the drugs in the UK, rating higher even than heroin and crack-cocaine.

Alcoholism is on the rise. A recent study by the NHS looked at alcohol- related hospital admissions over the last 10 years. That study found that there were 339,000 estimated admissions related to alcohol consumption in 2015/2016. This is 22% higher than 2005/06.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 3.3 million deaths per year are caused by the harmful use of alcohol. Shockingly, that works out as 1 person every 10 seconds.
