Heavy use of spice or k2 for an extended time is likely to cause physical dependency. By this time, it will be extremely difficult to get off the drug on your own, due to the withdrawal symptoms you experience whenever you try to cut back or stop entirely.
There are various signs that can help you determine whether it’s time you get treatment:
If most of these statements ring true for you, call us today to find out how we can help.
There are several options available for spice addiction treatment, including:
Each of these options has its own unique benefits and more than one can be combined for the best results. Read on to find out more about each option.
There may be a few options available to you, but the best option in most cases is private rehab, due to the unparalleled level of care offered. Private rehabilitation facilities offer an intense level of care that would be nearly impossible to replicate in a public or non-profit treatment arrangement. You’ll have the best shot at successful recovery since the programmes are personalised and holistic treatment modalities are used.
Primrose Lodge offers a fully comprehensive rehab programme that offers a range of services, including:
Generally, longer rehab programmes tend to be more successful. We have a range of rehab programmes on offer, but our most comprehensive and intensive is our 28-day programme. Please contact us today to learn more about how our rehab programmes can help you.
There are several factors that affect the price you’ll have to pay, including the cost of medication, medical equipment, level of accommodation, and so on.
The NHS website offers advice and resources for people struggling with spice and other drugs. They partner with some non-profit organisations to deliver drug interventions in some areas, and have a page on their website to help with addiction services in your area. Before you do anything, the NHS recommends talking to your GP first about your spice problem. They may offer to treat you themselves or refer you to a local service that can be of assistance.
While some services require a referral, others don’t. Some of these include:
While you won’t need a referral to access the services mentioned above, some services will require you to get a referral and won’t attend to you otherwise. You can get a referral from your GP for services which they can’t offer, such as counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
You may also be referred to services such as detox, drug testing and rehab. Usually, you and your doctor will work out a personal care plan, which will then determine where you are referred to. While referrals are okay, the process can be lengthy.
When you go to your GP, they may place you on medication. They may prescribe a substitute, in which case you’ll be placed on a safer alternative to spice to stabilise you and prevent withdrawal symptoms from occurring. Once you’re stabilised, you’ll be weaned off the new drug as you follow a prescribed schedule.
You may also be given medication to help manage any underlying mental health issues which you may have had before you started abusing spice or may have even developed because of your drug abuse. An example is anti-depressants prescribed for depression.
Fellowship groups are groups where people with drug problems come together to share their common problem, with the aim of inspiring one another to remain on track with their recovery journey. These groups tend to meet on a weekly basis at predetermined locations. They may be small community groups or large national networks.
MA and NA are fellowship groups for drug users and former addicts who are on a journey of life-long recovery and healing. While MA is for marijuana users and NA is for narcotics users, both groups are open to anyone who may have problems with any kind of drug.
Members don’t share their real identities or contact details with other members and the only requirement to join any of these groups is to have a desire to stop using drugs. MA and NA are both based on the original Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 12-step model.
Fellowship groups, or mutual aid groups, have been proven to improve one’s chances of remaining sober and clean. Even after rehab, the battle has not yet been completely won. Relapse can happen anytime but attending such groups can help you stay on track and keep your ultimate goal in focus.
By attending fellowship group meetings, you can find a sense of fitting in and connecting with people like you who know what it’s like to be in your shoes. You can learn to take responsibility for your spice problems and reach for the recovery you desire.
Addiction counselling is an important step in the rehabilitation process, as it helps you attain a healthy state of mind, which, in turn, is essential for attaining and maintaining lifelong recovery from spice addiction.
Private counselling for addiction is aimed at helping you deal with your cravings and, ultimately, tackling your addiction. You’ll learn how your cravings can be converted to healthier thoughts, which can serve as a weapon against temptation. Your counsellor will also work with you to figure out the core cause of your addiction as this provides the key to finding a lasting solution.
There are various kinds of addiction counselling which you can undertake, and none is believed to be significantly better than any of the others. However, more than one approach is likely to be combined to ensure that you have a treatment programme that’s tailored to your needs.
One-to-one therapy involves private sessions with a counsellor and is often used in cases where there’s a co-occurring mental condition. Group therapy involves therapy sessions with a counsellor and other people who, like you, are on a recovery journey. It involves sharing one another’s experiences.
Of all the treatment services available, evidence suggests that private rehab is the best option in most cases. In private rehab, you can be assured of getting 24/7 care from addiction care specialists. Primrose is extra special because many of our staff have been through rehab themselves, so they know what it’s like to be in your shoes and are passionate about helping clients reclaim their lives.
We take a holistic view on treatment because we believe that addiction treatment shouldn’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. With all the therapy options and treatment modalities offered at our facility, we carefully design a treatment programme that’s ideal for every one of our clients, taking into account their unique needs.
We offer one-to-one and group therapies, as well as family support and free aftercare for one year. Regardless of which treatment option you decide to go with, we recommend including fellowship groups as they can be immensely beneficial for your long-term recovery plan.
