Alcohol and Drug Rehab Options in Surrey
Experts agree that the most effective way of treating addiction is residential care in a rehab setting. The cycle of addiction can be a really hard one to break, but with research-based, expert help, you can recover. If you need help, there are a number of highly rated alcohol and drug rehabs in Surrey, ready to take you or a loved one in for treatment.
Getting Ready for Rehab
Because addiction is a progressive illness it is important that you get treatment as promptly as you possibly can. The consequences of untreated addiction can be poor mental, physical and emotional health, as well as all sorts of social and relationship problems.
Before you are able to start a therapeutic rehab programme you will usually need a detox. This should be a medically supervised and supported process. Remember that stopping abruptly by yourself can be not only extremely uncomfortable but also dangerous.
On admission to rehab, you will be seen by a doctor who will be able to prescribe a substance-specific detox for you. You will be supported throughout the detox by all the staff and also by your peers in the programme, who will have recently been through the same things themselves.
\recovery from addiction is not just about putting down the drugs or drink. Sometimes people think that detox is all that is necessary, and this perception often sets people up for failure. It is really important for recovery that you are able to embrace change.
You will need some time and space away from using to address your thinking and the reasons why you got into addiction in the first place. Rehab will be able to give you many relapse prevention tools, relationships building tools and new thinking skills. All of this will enable you to build a happy life, without the use of drugs or alcohol.
Why Choose Residential Rehab in Surrey?
There are a number of different approaches to treating addiction, such as outpatient day programmes, individual counselling and residential rehab. Residential treatment is the most effective of the treatments currently available for addiction. Residential treatment offers a comprehensive and structured programme for recovery, in a therapeutic setting. One of its main benefits is that your healing will take place within a therapeutic community of peers who are going through the same process as you.
Recovering in rehab, in a safe and sober environment, is far easier than trying to do it on your own at home. Going to rehab will give you the opportunity to focus on getting better without the pressures of outside issues. Rehab provides a safe and nurturing environment in which you can do the important work of recovery.
In residential rehab, you will access to passionate, experienced staff who are dedicated to providing support of the highest standard. In all residential rehabs, you will have the opportunity to recovery within a community of like-minded peers. You will learn about addiction and relapse prevention and have the opportunity to learn skills which will help you build the life that you want and that you deserve.
Most rehab programmes will last an average of 90 days – this will give you time not only to detox but to learn all you can and prepare for life after addiction.

What Kind of Things Will I Work on in Rehab?
Rehab is equipped to help you examine the patterns of thinking and behaving that have led to your addiction. This will help you to understand the illness of addiction and let go of the shame and guilt attached to being an addict. Counsellors in rehab will help you learn the skills that will enable you to overcome your addiction. You will learn mood management skills and how to safely cope with triggering situations.
The work that we will do together in our Surrey rehabs will help you break the cycle of addiction and prepare you to return to ‘normal’ life.
Thinking skills that you will practice:
- Living in the Present – you will learn to embrace the experience of the present moment without judgement, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future (or trying to escape from it through chemicals).
- Healthy Coping Skills – focus on helping you to learn to cope with triggering situations in healthy and effective ways.
- Emotion Management Skills – learn to accept your emotions and to process them in a manageable way.
- Communication/Relationship Skills teach you to nurture your relationships through self-care and assertiveness.
With your new recovery skills, you can soothe your distress in effective and healthy ways, rather than picking up a drink or drug. You will also learn about what it is that enjoy as a sober person.
It can be a fun and rewarding to find out how we can fill our lives with joy. You can consider what makes you happy, what hobbies you might like to pursue and career options. Rehab will help you to identify those things in life that are both pleasurable and healthy.
