Antrim

Antrim/Antrim/BT41

Are you ready to stop drinking? Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Northern Ireland. If you have a problem with drug abuse, either binge drinking or excessive drinking there's a wide range of mental health services that can help.

Treatments offered for alcoholism may start with an intervention, discussion on 'moderation vs abstinence' and possibly the opinions of inpatient (long-term Residential rehab) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good substance treatment hospital with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also medically recommended. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or drug and alcohol rehabilitation is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for alcoholics/addicts.

Addiction often combines other health problems both physical and mental. Mental health problems we deal with every day include depression/anxiety disorders OCD and post-traumatic stress disorder (called PTSD for short). .

Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Your GP in Antrim is a good place to start. They can discuss your alcohol problems with you and help get you the right alcohol addiction treatment provider in Antrim.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your drug and alcohol rehabilitation of choice. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Antrim. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
  4. You may then assigned to a group of other patients etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Antrim
  6. You may be given 12 step recovery literature
  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the alcoholics

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Antrim have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Does rehab work in Antrim?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for drug abuse/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "81.6% were classed as a good outcome by the independent reviewers after attending Castle Craig's residential rehab  . More."

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Antrim tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many addicts have co-occurring issues like sleep disorders or agoraphobia ADHD or ADD. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

  2. Safe, Caring Environment: Residential treatment at a private clinic is conducted in a safe environment that is free of the distractions of everyday life. Alcoholics and addicts are living in a bubble, they are completely insulated from the outside world. This means that there are fewer distractions or triggers. Clients can concentrate all of their energies on getting well. They are effectively removed from all of the outside distractions and stressors and 'immersed in recovery'.

"Today I am 3 years sober an impossibility and unimaginable 3 years ago. Thanks a million." Dayton August 2018 Antrim

Why rehab might not work:

  • Lack of 12 step programme
  • patients continue to surround yourself with others who still use
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

Patients are usually admitted into treatment at a private clinic or hospital from four weeks to 6 months, depending on the severity of the addiction. The best results are achieved when people stay in treatment for at least 12 weeks. Detox can take place before admission or on arrival alongside other therapies. More.

A 'normal' day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and drug abuse/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Antrim will follow a similar pattern.

A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with gaming, sex or food.

Daytime

Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.

  1. Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
  2. (Break)
  3. Another Group (60 minutes)
  4. (Lunch)
  5. One to one session or Group ;(60 minutes)
  6. Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture ;(60 minutes)
  7. Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
  8. There is often written step or life story work to do

Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA, or relevant 12 step programme.

Diet: Several rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that patients would not attend otherwise.

Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.

Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Antrim as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave my drug and alcohol rehabilitation? Yes, there are not secure facilities.

Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all, or within 48 hours.

The Perfect location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for issues from alcohol is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every addiction client is different. However, most psychologists often recommend that removing alcoholics away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably recommended.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.
