Local Residential Alcohol And Drug Rehab In Somerset

It’s almost impossible to hide the effects of drug and alcohol abuse over a long period of time. After a while, there are obvious physical, behavioural, and psychological signs. Addiction is a disease that affects the individual, family, and whole community.

The underlying causes are unclear, and scientists suggest a combination of factors lead to addiction, but what is clear is that addiction is characterised by a lack of control over drug/alcohol use, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, panic disorders, seizures, preoccupation with drug use, mood swings, aggressiveness, violent outbursts, and more.

You don’t have to wait until you’ve hit rock bottom before you do something about it. Rehab centres can help you get your life back on track now. Staff is made up of some of the best therapists, doctors, and recovery workers, who can help you understand why you abused drugs, develop positive ways of dealing with your feelings, emotions, and behaviour that lead to drug use, and also learn coping techniques to ensure you stay abstinent.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

The Pros

Treatment at a private rehab is structured and highly regimented, to ensure that clients have a schedule that guides their treatment and helps them focus better on recovery. You’re living in a therapeutic environment that is free of drugs, so you don’t have to worry about relapsing. It offers an escape from the stress of daily life, environmental triggers, drug-using friends and acquaintances, and other factors that fueled your drug use.

Unlike government-funded rehabs, you don’t have to wait to access treatment, because of same-day intake. Patients also have 24/7 support from medical staff, to ensure that they can access treatment when they need it. Treatment is designed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, counsellors, and therapists, to ensure you receive comprehensive and complete care.

The Cons

  • Cost may be a barrier
