All our drug and alcohol rehabs in Lincolnshire are dedicated to your success in recovering from addiction. Addiction is a chronic and multifaceted problem, but it is one that can be treated effectively.
Why Choose Rehab?
The residential rehabs in the Lincolnshire area offer a range of therapies with a focus on how you can best reach your goals and get your life back on track. Together with your focal counsellor, or in a group therapy setting, you will look at which of your behaviours are not working well for you. The addiction specialists in the Lincolnshire area are equipped with interventions with which to address unhealthy behaviours. These therapeutic interventions will include:

- Emotional regulation training: You will learn to process your feelings in healthy and effective ways. You can love and accept yourself and your feelings. You will learn great self-care tools, which will help you to cope without the use of drug and alcohol.
What Is Addiction Treatment?
Effective drug and alcohol rehab will address not only your primary addiction but also other co-occurring issues like medical problems, psychological issues and social and vocational goals.
There are two core components to rehab, a pharmacological treatment which- will help to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. The second component is a therapeutic intervention which – will inspire motivation to change, help to develop plosive tools and skills, aim to improve interpersonal relationships and facilitate healing.
The Lincolnshire services offer a range of drug and alcohol rehab services. To find out which one will be the best for you we will take into consideration your individual circumstances such as:
- Psychological needs
- Family situation
- Using history
During the assessment you will be asked questions about these subjects, this is just to ensure that you get the best treatment for you.
What Happens in Rehab?
We believe in giving people the best environment in which to recover. The Lincolnshire area rehabs are able to provide a nurturing and safe environment in which to engage with therapy. Rehab offers a range of different therapeutic interventions, including:
- Full medical detox
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Other therapies e.g. CBT, trauma therapy,
- Complementary therapies
- Family Therapy
- Relapse prevention
- Gender Groups
- Fitness and Exercise
- Healthy Eating
Following the detox process, which usually takes 7-10 days, a typical day will consist of a blend of different counselling, individual and group therapy, holistic activities and free time. You will receive a timetable and there will always be support staff on hand to help you, answer your questions, and make sure you are comfortable during your time in rehab.
The amount of time you will spend in rehab will depend on your circumstance. On average the therapeutic part of the programme in our Lincolnshire rehabs requires a 90-day stay. Experts agree that this length of the programme is necessary to provide a stable base for recovery. Second and Third Stage care may be available in terms of- longer term, ‘dry accommodation’ with minimal support from staff.
Experiencing Resistance to Rehab?
Often we spend many years justifying and normalizing our using behaviour. Getting out of this pattern of thinking may require some intervention.
If you are considering rehab it is important that you are able, to be honest with yourself about your situation. Ask yourself what your using is really like and what it is doing to your life. How is your addiction impacting your ability to function, your relationships and your health?
The therapeutic value of recovering with other addicts who are going through, or have recently overcome, the challenges you now face, is without parallel.
Perhaps you have been drinking and using for many years and have tried to stop before and have lost hope. You may not want to take time out from work commitments and family to attend rehab. Rest assured that you can recover.
Rehab is an ideal place to recover because it is a space in which you can recover without the distractions and pressures of outside issues. In rehab, you will build on your ability to deal with situations and emotional reactions. You will learn skills for creating a positive, sober life.
Aftercare and Relapse Prevention Options in Lincolnshire
When the time comes to leave rehab you will be prepared with a comprehensive aftercare plan. This will consist of a relapse prevention plan which you have formulated with your counsellor and peers in rehab. You will have access to aftercare groups which are especially useful in the first months after leaving rehab. In these groups, you are invited to process how you are finding putting into practice all the knowledge, tools, and skills that you learned in rehab.
In addition to the professional services that are available, we suggest you look into self-help groups and Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous meetings in the Lincolnshire area. In these groups, you will be able to be part of a community of other recovering people.
Aftercare is a really important factor in helping you stay clean and sober, especially during those first few vulnerable months after leaving rehab. It can be all too easy to fall back into old ways. Our Staffordshire rehabs will have helped you lay a foundation on which to build your long-term sobriety. It is vital that you follow your aftercare and relapse prevention plans very carefully – this will allow you to keep getting better and will help you in building the life that you want.
Tips for staying clean and sober:
- Find a group of sober friends. This will greatly increase your chances of staying sober and of being happy. This can be achieved by attending 12-step meetings and support groups.
- Change your social group. We suggest that you change your phone number and steer clear of those people who tempt you to use. Instead, focus on building positive and healthy new relationships.
- A holistic approach to recovery. Staying clean and sober is the primary factor in recovering of course but being in good emotional, mental and physical health will enable you to feel good, which will make staying sober easier.
- Try new things. – Discover new hobbies, make a life that you really enjoy.
