Detox

Before rehabilitation can take place, many drug addictions require an initial detox. There are many different types of detox we offer to ensure the safe removal of substances from your system, regardless of the substance. We will also help to manage withdrawal symptoms and encourage support from family members, to make the detoxification as smooth and comfortable as possible.

EXPERIENCED SPECIALISTS

Our rehabilitation programme helps you learn how to live a fulfilling and enjoyable life free from drug addiction. Many individuals believe that becoming substance free once means they will never turn to drugs again. Unfortunately, for many people, this is not the case. Our programme is designed to reduce the likelihood of a relapse, teaching individuals how to overcome emotional triggers or social circles and environments where substance abuse occurs.

Strong cravings are also very common in the early days following abstinence; our team specialises in identifying signs of a potential relapse and offers intervention in the form of alternative therapies and activities. Our urban recovery model helps you to return to everyday life in a safe and manageable way. If you or a loved one is ready to begin their journey to recovery from drug addiction, schedule a free consultation with our friendly team today to understand how we can help you.

    The reasons for early drug use can be different for each individual, for some it may be curiosity, for others they may initially enjoy how a substance makes them feel, some it may be peer pressure or maybe to take away painful emotions or used as a crutch to help manage life's stresses. Then over time through the repeated behaviour changes take place in the brain and body which leads to either or both psychological and physical dependence.
  • How does drug addiction affect the brain?
    Drugs interfere with the way neurons send, receive, and process signals via neurotransmitters. Some drugs, such as marijuana and heroin, can activate neurons because their chemical structure mimics that of a natural neurotransmitter in the body. This allows the drugs to attach onto and activate the neurons. Although these drugs mimic the brain's own chemicals, they don't activate neurons in the same way as a natural neurotransmitter, and they lead to abnormal messages being sent through the network. Other drugs, such as amphetamine or cocaine, can cause the neurons to release abnormally large amounts of natural neurotransmitters or prevent the normal recycling of these brain chemicals by interfering with transporters. This too amplifies or disrupts the normal communication between neurons.

  • Why do drugs cause addiction?
    It is widely accepted that drug addiction is a complex disease with multiple and varying factors. While the reasons for an individuals initial drug use differs it is common that for most this early use is a voluntary choice. Over time the repeated use of a drug can cause psychological and/or physical dependence leaving the individual with little or no control over the compulsion to use despite the desire not to and the known negative consequences. As the body builds a tolerance to the drug the individual will need to use higher doses in order to experience the same effect and this can affect the individuals ability to enjoy and find pleasure in more positive ways they may have previously. This persistent use can lead to changes in the brain such as affecting its reward and belief systems, reinforcing the repetition of unhealthy behaviours.

    There have been many studies undertaken that display different results in regards to the success rates of addiction treatment in rehabs.

For example some may measure success rates in regards to completion of a treatment programmes, others at how many remain abstinent in the immediate period following treatment and others at the one or five year points. As it it widely accepted that addiction is a condition that requires an ongoing solution often considered to be life long then at what point should success be qualified. While we begin to understand the complexities of the question there are some commonalities that suggest improved outcomes for individuals in addiction treatment.

    Environment - It is important to have a safe, confidential and therapeutic environment conducive to the recovery process. At Acquiesce our facilities are finished to a high standard throughout offering a sleek modern finish while retaining a therapeutic and homely ambience, providing a truly inspiring and practical space to begin your recovery journey.

    Support - The level of support that individuals receive has can have a big impact on the success of their treatment. At Acquiesce we work with only six residential clients at any one time which allows us to provide a high level of focused, individual support and treatment.

    After care - Statistics show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence. Acquiesce offer comprehensive aftercare plan as standard with on-going support for as long as the individual feels necessary.

    Commitment - It is often said that no one suffering with issues of addiction can truly be helped unless they want to be. Regardless of the quality of the rehab facilities and programme, commitment from the individual is a necessary ingredient if a successful outcome is to be achieved. Acquiesce are an all private facility so those who access treatment with us do so from their own initiative and as self investment in their own future. A study published by the NHS’ National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse UK in 2012 looked at the rates of every private clinic across the UK. It found that the best performing facilities achieve success rates of between 60% and 80% of individuals receiving residential treatment remained abstinent five years after completing their programmes. What’s more, the success rates enjoyed by the best private rehab clinics are many times better than the rates achieved through NHS and community-based services. The 2012 report demonstrates as much. Simply put, you stand a better chance of achieving abstinence after five years by undergoing rehab at a private clinic. Over the years, drug rehab experts have affirmed, repeatedly, that residential treatment at a private clinic works better than any other treatment option available.

  • Who should go to drug rehab?
    Drug Rehab can help any individual who has recognised that they have a problem with drugs. Many believe that they must loose everything good in their lives for their addiction to be severe enough to need treatment, this is certainly not the case. Rock bottoms or the point at which someone reaches out for help and support are different for each person and as addiction tends to be progressive it is better to seek treatment sooner rather than later. Although we are all individuals and our symptoms differ there are some common signs that would indicate that you would benefit from rehab these include lack of control of the amount of drugs you use, having a desire to stop but find that you are unable to, using drugs despite knowing the potential negative consequences, craving or thinking about drugs a lot, planning your life around drug use, drugs are causing you problems in health physical or mental, relationship issues, financial issues, physical dependence resulting in withdrawal symptoms. When it comes to addiction it is difficult to admit and accept that you have a problem and need help but once that you do the recovery process can then begin. The probability is that if you are questioning whether or not you need help addressing your drug use then it’s likely that you do. At Acquiesce we work with individuals whose lives have been affected at various levels and our programme is effective in treating addiction at all points of the spectrum.
