The shores of Teignmouth make a great place to just relax and ponder life for a while. Perhaps you have done that, only to come to the realisation that you are having a difficult time dealing with drugs or alcohol. If so, Addiction Helper is here to assist you. We are here to help you locate and access the treatment you need to deal with your drug or alcohol problem.
You may be an abuser who simply uses too much, too often. An outpatient programme combined with group support may be all you need to conquer your problem. On the other hand, you may already be an addict who is totally controlled by the substances you have chosen to use. You may need a residential treatment programme provided by a private clinic.
The most important thing to understand is that there is no single treatment that works in every case. You are different from every other person on this planet; your particular substance abuse problem is different from that of anyone else we serve. Let us help you figure out what is best for you so that you can get the treatment you need.
How Treatment Works
Drug and alcohol treatment plans are based on a number of factors including the substance in question and how long an individual has been using. When you choose services from the NHS, you are likely to be limited to a small number treatment options offered on an outpatient basis. Your NHS caregiver will also expect you to avail yourself of services offered by charities and support groups. Keep in mind there are usually waiting times attached to NHS programmes.
Should you choose residential treatment through a private clinic then things will be quite a bit different. Your treatment team will devise a bespoke plan based on an initial assessment performed when you arrive at the clinic. The doctors, nurses, and therapists comprising the team will follow you through your treatment plan to completion. Upon release from the facility, you will be offered several months of aftercare services designed to help prevent relapse.
Detox will be necessary for the most severely addicted individuals. Detox is a 7 to 10 day process designed to break your physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. You may not need detox if the severity of your problem does not rise to the level of addiction. However, that is for professionals to assess.
