Personalised Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Merseyside

Addiction isolates us from our family and friends as our lives revolve more and more around our drug of choice. Eventually, we end up alone. This is one of the many reasons why choosing to recover as part of a therapeutic community in rehab is so beneficial. In rehab, you will recover with a community of expert therapists and addiction experts, whilst being surrounded by peers who are going through the same process as you. These specialists will work on creating a personalised programme within the top alcohol and drug rehab clinics in Merseyside.

Experts agree that tailored, research-based, residential treatment is the most effective way to treat addiction. In rehab, you will get a chance to turn your life around. You will learn tools that can keep you sober and help you to build a new, sober life.

What Treatment Is Best for Me?

We know that no two people are the same and each person’s experience is unique to them.  This is why we provide a detailed clinical assessment to determine the right course of action for you. During your assessment, we will try to get as comprehensive a picture as possible. To do this we will ask you questions relating to your:

You will also have an opportunity to tell us about your goals and expectations for rehab. Our assessment process is designed to help us determine exactly which programme will be most beneficial for you.

The Facts about Addiction

Some of us seem to cope with life’s ups and downs without too much difficulty but for all sorts of reasons some of us end up developing addictions to drugs or alcohol. Using mood-altering chemicals seems like an effective coping mechanism for but there is a high price to pay for addiction. Often, what once seemed like a solution to our problems, ends up making our lives much more difficult.

No one purposefully gets addicted to drugs or alcohol. Often people begin drinking and using as young people and it spirals out of control. Sometimes a difficult life event pushes our drinking or using over the line and into addiction.

Using drugs or alcohol can ‘fix our feelings’ for a time, by numbing them. To heal you have to be able to process your feelings in a healthy way. If you are unable to cope with your feelings without drugs or alcohol, rather than healing and moving on with your life you can become stuck in a cycle of addiction.

If you are unable to resolve the issues in your life without drugs or alcohol maybe it is time to seek help. Rehab will help you to develop effective ways of living and enjoying life without the use of drugs and alcohol.

Learning to Love Yourself

Sometimes low self-esteem and low self-worth are the drivers behind addiction. But addiction just exacerbates this negative self-image. Active alcoholism and addiction cause a chronic sense of shame and unworthiness. The sense that you are not worth the help, or are incapable or recovering presets a barrier to accepting the help you need. You are worth it and you can recover.

In rehab, you will have the opportunity to heal your shame and to get to know and to love the real you, with the help of expert therapists. In the safe and nurturing treatment environment, you can identify and challenge negative thought patterns and develop self-care strategies.

It is time to give yourself a break!

In our drug and alcohol services in Merseyside are committed to timely and long-term support.  We believe that the best approach to addiction is a multi-faceted one so we treat the illness of addiction – medically, mentally and spiritually.
