Effective Treatment To Overcome Drug Addiction
Do you need help with a drug problem? Perhaps you may be afraid to admit this to yourself, let alone someone else.
PCP understand that many addicted to drugs feel a great deal of shame and guilt; as a result, they fail to ask for help. Drug addiction is a life-threatening condition; we want to make a difference and reassure you that we can help you and support you in changing yourself and your life for the better.
Drug addiction is now proven to be a chronic disease of the brain. Drug addicts and their families no longer need to be in the dark or be afraid to ask for professional help.
PCP’s primary drug rehab programme is specifically designed to target the disease of drug addiction, so that permanent recovery can then be possible.
Our professional team of addiction specialists will show you how to disassociate from addictive processes and damaging behaviours and train your brain to think very differently.
With a new mindset and outlook on life, as long as you implement the healthy strategies we show you, anything is possible. You will not only achieve freedom from drugs but so much more!
Primary Drug Rehab Detox
Our primary drug rehab includes a full medical drug detox for any medically confirmed drug dependence. The first step in recovery from drug addiction is to remove the drugs safely. Following detox, primary drug rehab can then be engaged with a clear mind and body.
On admitting to one of our four CQC registered drug rehab centres, located in Clapham London, Leicester Midlands, Luton Bedfordshire or Chelmsford Essex, you will be comprehensively assessed by one of our rehab doctors. They will confirm any dependence on drugs, alcohol or an activity that requires detox and treatment, along with a full physical and mental health examination.
A medical drug detox, within a controlled rehab environment, helps to diminish drug withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. This makes detoxing from drugs much safer, comfortable and achievable.
Drugs & Dual Diagnosis Rehab
It is not uncommon for those that abuse and are addicted to drugs, to suffer from either: a) an underlying mental health condition, or, b) develop a mental health condition as a result.
Many individuals are not just addicted to one drug, but a number of drugs and/or alcohol. They may also have mental health illnesses such as Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder or an Eating Disorder.
Regardless of whether a mental health illness led to drug addiction, or was caused by drug addiction, all conditions presenting must be professionally treated simultaneously.
By removing the drugs and safely detoxing you, it will become apparent if you suffer from a dual diagnosis condition that requires further specialist treatment. A true dual diagnosis illness will remain once the drugs are removed. It is not merely a symptom of drug abuse and addiction.
Those that suffer from addiction, are often complex individuals that require very specialised and personalised treatment. Our primary drug rehab programmes ensure that all your treatment needs are met on an individual basis; this includes dual diagnosis rehab treatment.
Treating all conditions simultaneously is paramount to long term recovery. Leaving one condition untreated, will likely lead to the relapse of others.
Benefits of Residential Primary Drug Rehab
You may be wondering if you need a daycare programme or residential rehab for your drug problem and what the benefits are.
PCP recommend our residential primary drug rehab as the most cost-effective form of drug rehabilitation.
For those that have a drug abuse problem that can be effectively managed on an outpatient basis, we do offer daycare drug treatment at our Clapham, London rehab.
The benefits of residential primary drug rehab include:
- 24/7 medical and therapeutic care
- A supportive and recovery focused, drug-free environment
- Peer support from those who are going through very similar experiences
- More intensive therapy can be delivered as you are in a safe place
- You will able to devote 100% of yourself to rehab treatment, without conflict, temptation, or demands from the outside world
- You will have the time, space and treatment to recover mentally, emotionally, physically and socially
- You will leave rehab drug free, armed with the tools for continued recovery
Residential rehab for drug addiction has a very high success rate of completion. If you are severely affected by addiction, we urge you to consider this when weighing up your options.
Do I Need Primary Drug Rehab?
Drug addiction has a high death rate, especially amongst those that mix drugs or use opiates. You may think you have time, that it won’t happen to you, but statistics prove otherwise.
3,744 drug-related deaths were registered in England and Wales in 2016. These were not suicide attempts, but accidental drug poisonings through unintentional overdoses and mixing different drugs together, or taking drugs with alcohol.
Once you are addicted, you are likely to take bigger and more extreme risks with your health, taking larger amounts and mixing drugs for a greater effect. Drugs become the air that you breathe and the food that you eat.
So far there is no medical or scientific cure for addiction. However, it can be arrested and treated successfully. Once the drugs have been stopped, recovery can be maintained on a daily basis.
If you are addicted to drugs, it will only get worse, you may at times regain short periods of control, but these will become less and less. Without expert treatment such as our primary drug rehab programme, it is likely you will push your loved ones away, lose your job, your ability to experience joy, your self-respect, your dignity and even your life.
Whether you are currently abusing drugs or are already addicted, it is vital that you seek help immediately.
PCP’s primary drug rehab will provide you with the foundations and tools for continued abstinence from drugs and personal development. Do not take it for granted that tomorrow will come, our vast experience of working with drug addicts over the years is that for many sadly it doesn’t.
Is Drug Addiction a Disease?
Drug addiction is now medically recognised as a disease. Public Health England and the National Institutes of Health have classed drug addiction as a “chronic relapsing brain disease”.
Brain scans have advanced to evidence that the brain of an addict is dramatically different from a healthy non-addicted brain.
Repeated and frequent exposure to drugs and the effect that is created, causes progressive damage to your brain. Drug addiction is a chronic disease and needs to be treated professionally, as you would any other chronic disease.
Without treatment, as your drug addiction progresses, you will eventually reach a place where you can feel no pleasure at all without drugs; you will be compelled to actively seek and take them despite the harmful consequences. Once addicted this is something you cannot control.
PCPs primary drug rehab will teach you valuable coping strategies and relapse prevention techniques, that will help you stay clean and reprogramme your brain to think differently. Relapse does not have to be part of your journey.
We also look at the underlying causes and conditions of your addiction and treat them, using the latest evidence-based addiction treatments.
How Long Does Primary Drug Rehab Take?
How long you will need to spend in a primary drug rehab depends on a number of factors that we will consider during your free pre-admission assessment. Everyone is different and has different treatment needs.
Our primary drug rehab programmes run from 4 to 12 weeks. The optimum treatment time takes 8 to 12 weeks. Evidence suggests that it takes the average human brain a minimum of 8 weeks to adopt new healthy practices and implement them without too much difficulty.
If you require longer than 12 weeks, we have extended care options available, including Secondary and Tertiary care.
What Happens After Drug Rehab?
In the early weeks, months and even the first few years of recovery, the risk of relapse for a drug addict is very high.
So that we can continue to support you following completion of primary care drug treatment, PCP offers free aftercare sessions for as long as you need.
You will also be provided with a comprehensive rehab aftercare package, showing you exactly where you can access help and support locally. This includes valuable suggestions on how to maintain your recovery.
We can also arrange for one to one drug counselling to be continued at your request.
