Drug Rehab

Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn provide a full and comprehensive drug rehab programme that unearths and treats the root causes of the individual’s drug addiction. Drug rehabilitation is a vital component to recovering from addiction on a permanent basis. Without undergoing intensive addiction treatment to rehabilitate the individual’s mind, there is little hope of the individual making a full and permanent recovery.

Public Health England have classified addiction as a chronic relapsing brain disease; with less than 5% of sufferers finding permanent recovery. Addiction is a life threatening condition; it destroys the individual internally and externally and can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, social standing or upbringing. The ripple effect of addiction affects all that come into contact with the sufferer and leaves a profound mark on the sufferer’s family, friends and loved ones. In order to help safeguard against a relapse of this deadly disease, we strongly recommend an individual with an addiction or substance abuse problem undergoes our drug rehab programme. This can be carried out in conjunction with an assisted medical detox for those with an alcohol or drug dependency.

Who Needs Drug Rehab?

It is a common misconception that an individual who suffers from drug addiction, just needs to stop taking drugs and all will be well. Many that do not understand addiction, cannot comprehend why an individual would go to the lengths that they do in harming themselves and those that love and care for them. Addiction, regardless of the substance that is involved, whether it be alcohol, heroin, cocaine or prescribed drugs, is a disease of the brain. Addiction is not a choice, no one chooses to be or aspires to be an addict. The crux of the disease lies in the individual’s false belief systems and negative/destructive thinking. This compels them to seek relief through drugs, or in some cases compels them to carry out an a certain activity, known as a process addiction. Despite ever growing consequences to their health, relationships, career and finances, the compulsion is too strong for them to rationalize and they will continue in their behaviours until the bitter end. Ask yourself, who in their right mind would destroy themselves and harm the ones they love out of choice? The point is, that addicts are not in their right mind and have no sane thought processes when it comes to their addiction.

Removing the alcohol, compulsive activity or drug is only the first step in overcoming addiction. The addict MUST undergo a profound change in their thinking and behaviours in order to maintain their recovery and not resort to their old behaviours and coping mechanisms. The root causes of their addiction, essentially the driving forces behind it, need to be treated in order that they can grow in their recovery. By only undergoing a detox they are essentially only treating part of themselves as a whole, i.e. their physical health. With the same mind-set, false beliefs and warped perceptions, it is very likely they will relapse. In order to successfully treat addiction and permanent recovery to be attained, the mind and spirit of the addict must be treated as well as the body. Essentially, they must be restored to sanity, which is far removed from the insanity they displayed in active addiction.

Our experience shows that there is no quick fix to treating someone with a drug or alcohol addiction. As a chronic relapsing brain disease , a detox alone is rarely sufficient. So in answer to the question of “who needs drug rehab?”, we believe any individual suffering from addiction will reap the benefits of our intensive rehabilitation programme.

How Will It Help?

Drug rehab is a professional and specialist treatment service available to those suffering from addiction and its common co occurring illnesses. Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn specialise in drug detoxification and rehabilitation. Our treatment facility, staffed by dedicated and qualified professionals, is a safe and healing place where you will receive the correct and individualised treatment for your specific addiction. We offer drug rehabilitation on an inpatient basis, this removes the temptation of drugs and allows us to work intensively with you, within the safety of our unit. Sadly, the levels of intensive therapy required to successfully treat drug addiction are not available on the NHS; community drug programmes have minimal effect on the majority, as, as well as trying to recover from drug action they are also exposed to outside distractions and temptations when they are at their most vulnerable.

Undergoing inpatient drug rehab, means we can work with the individual on a far more intensive level and ensure that they remain safe and supported throughout. Removing the individual from their often chaotic and destructive environment means that they have a far higher chance of completing a detox and treatment programme. A period in drug rehab also enforces abstinence, allowing the individual to break free from the self destructive and compulsive patterns of their addiction and address the issues that are underlying it.

We offer a secure, nurturing and healing environment. We treat each client based on their individual treatment needs and completely without judgement. Most of our staff are in recovery themselves, so they understand the shame, guilt and remorse that goes hand in hand with addiction. You will be shown a compassionate and professional approach throughout your treatment. Our only aim is to help you get well and stay in recovery on a permanent basis. We feel it is important for our clients to feel relaxed, comfortable and well rested, so that their energies can be focused on their recovery and rehabilitation. We use additional proven therapies to aid in physical rehabilitation and help to relax the mind. Support is on hand 24/7 so you never need feel alone

How Long Does Drug Rehab Take?

The duration of treatment suggested varies from from individual to individual. How long they will need to stay will be dependent on various personal treatment factors, such as:

  • Their general health and the period of recuperation needed to restore them to full health physically and mentally
  • Having a drug dependency. Each case needs to be assessed fully in order to determine the length of medical detox required.
  • If they have a co occurring illnesses, such as Anxiety or Major Depressive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
  • They suffer from more than one addiction, whether that is a process addiction or substance addiction
  • Their cognitive ability and engagement levels: heavy drug and alcohol use can cause long term cognitive and concentration impairment; those affected may need a longer duration of programme.
  • Whether or not they have undergone a rehabilitation programme before
  • Their ability to commit in terms of finances and time
  • How dysfunctional or stable their home life is

Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn recommend a minimum of 28 to 56 days residential rehab treatment in the vast majority of cases. This can be further extended and Secondary Care is available to those who complete their Primary Care. Tertiary or supported sober living is available to those that need that extra help and support in reintegrating back into the community or for for those whom need to relocate in order to stay safe and in recovery. Beyond that, we offer 1 years free aftercare to all those that complete a treatment programme with us.

For a more accurate idea of the duration of stay that you need and the treatment required, please call us directly so we can advise based on your individual circumstances.

Personalised Drug Rehab

We understand the importance of rehabilitation in the long-term successful treatment of drug addiction. We therefore offer each individual a personalised drug treatment programme that is aimed at targeting and treating your specific treatment requirements. Permanent recovery can be achieved through facing and overcoming your own demons, with the help and guidance of qualified professionals. Drug addiction destroys the sufferer’s confidence, self worth and self-esteem. Our experienced counsellors and therapists work hard to restore each patient back to optimum health – mentally, spiritually, physically, socially and emotionally. This process takes time and it is not something that is achieved over night; this is why we recommend a minimum of 4 to 8 weeks residential treatment. Our treatment plans are person-centred, this means we regonise that all aspects of the individuals being need to be treated and nurtured back to full health and balance restored. We ensure that any issues that are that could possibly hinder the individual’s recovery in future, are addressed through the correct medical and therapeutic means. Our drug rehab programmes are delivered by our highly experienced and committed team of qualified doctors, counsellors, psychotherapists, holistic therapists, and support workers; all of whom are passionate about making a difference in the dark and otherwise hopeless world of addiction. Where we feel it is necessary we will also arrange a psychiatric assessment with a qualified Psychiatrist. We also have very strong working relationships with local colleges, education and training providers, and so can assist the individual in re-establishing themselves and achieving their dreams and goals in life.

Our vision is for each addict that walks through our doors to recovery fully from addiction and be transformed into the person they have always wanted and hoped to be. We will do all we can to assist in this process.

“ I resisted rehab for so long, the thought of giving my life over to the care of others terrified me. I put up all kinds of blocks up and made excuses as to why I didn’t need it. In the end I had to surrender to the fact that my prescription pill addiction was killing me and severely affecting my family. As soon as I arrived I felt immense relief, they were so friendly and professional and reassured me I was going to be ok. That was the first time anyone had ever said that to me and was music to my ears. I completed 12 weeks rehab, that was 2 years ago and am now living a life I only ever previously dreamed of. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and to all the amazing staff who supported me throughout” ~Emily 33
