Following on from our earlier chat, please find attached the details of the treatment centres that I feel would be best for your situation, as well as some supporting literature that I hope will help. When considering treatment, it is vital to choose a programme that offers the greatest opportunities for long-term recovery, as addiction is an illness where relapse would always be a very real risk.
We ensure on-going support and advice through the decision-making process and have a number of services available that offer what we feel are the correct treatment plans, thus supporting long term recovery expectations. An effective treatment plan will need to include preparation for treatment, a minimum 28-day period of residential care, and a minimum period of 10 weeks of aftercare, typically in the form of one to one counselling.
We have experienced and dedicated staff who will be involved in all aspects of the treatment plan and can guide, encourage and support every step of the way. The core of the treatment plan is a supervised detox followed by a psychologically based therapeutic programme, making engagement and commitment to recovery vital.
When more support is required in the decision making process, we are able to offer a Home Assessment with one of our specialist Addiction Counsellors. If for any reason an inpatient period of treatment is not possible then we are also able to offer a number of outpatient services, although we consider this only after it has been ascertained that inpatient care is indeed impossible under current circumstances.
As is (and always should be) expected, the treatment centres that we work with are all registered with the Care Quality Commission, a governing body that regulates care providers. We have established excellent relationships with them in order to offer a plan of care that we believe maximises recovery opportunity.
Our centres are located across the UK and overseas and are only offered following an assessment of needs.
After initial consultation, we request that the centre staff call and speak with you directly but I will also keep in touch.
Below are the Rehab Centre Details
INTENSIVE ADDICTION COUNSELLING
Intensive Addiction Counselling (IAC) is an alternative to attending a residential treatment centre, thus allowing the client to continue with any commitments or responsibilities he/she may have and avoiding any disruption to their normal daily routine. It also means that there is not the challenge of readjustment to day to day life when a period of residential treatment has been completed. It is recognised that in some situations, re-emergence of familiar associations and triggers from the clients addicted existence can become overwhelming and seriously threaten recovery. Fortunately, many clients living with substance dependency can now avoid the constraints and associated costs of in-patient residential treatment. Addiction Helper has developed IAC alongside some of the most experienced addiction counsellors in the country. These Counsellors have had many years of experience treating clients suffering from substance dependency. This experience has enabled Addiction Helper to develop an informed understanding of the essential elements that can lead to successful and long-term recovery. The aim of the IAC is to avoid the need for residential treatment whilst still achieving recovery results. IAC treats the clients substance dependency alongside everyday life, allowing the client to learn how to manage their feelings in “real life”. It is about changing mind-sets, developing awareness and an understanding of addiction as an illness and creating skills, tools and techniques to enable the client to respond differently to the challenges their new life presents. IAC teaches the client to be in charge of their feelings, thoughts and self rather than being controlled and dictated to by their addiction. The programme is especially suited to individuals who have managed to get some degree of abstinence from their addiction. The principal benefit of IAC is that it allows the client to maintain their commitment to their family, friends, and work responsibilities for a large part of their week. All the client will need to commit to is: Phase One: Weeks One to Four: Intensive Phase: • Two 50 minute face to face Counselling sessions each week • Twice daily, 20 minute telephone sessions on at least 5 days of each week • A minimum of one written work assignment each week • Attendance at 12 step fellowship meetings Phase Two: Weeks Four to Eight and Eight to Twelve: Maintenance Phase: • One 50 minute face to face Counselling session per week • Twice weekly, 15 minute telephone sessions • A minimum of one written work assignment each week • Attendance at 12 step fellowship meetings Phase Three: Weeks 8-12-16 and on-going: Monitoring Phase: • One 30 minute telephone call once a week for as long as it is agreed is appropriate between the client and the counsellor. • One 50 minute face to face Counselling session per week (optional) • Continued attendance at 12 step fellowship meetings. The IAC programme is designed to match the natural progress of recovery. Normally in the first 4-6 weeks the client will engage in the intensive phase of the course and then progress forward to the maintenance phase. This carries them through the critical period when risk of relapse is high. They will then move on to the monitoring phase that can continue until the client feels confident to move forward independently. Written work assignments will be based on the 12 step model of care. The aim of the programme is to get to the point where the client feels he/she is able to continue with their recovery without the support of their counsellor. At this time continued attendance at 12 step fellowship meeting will be advised as well as continued abstinence from any addictive substance.
WHY COUNSELLING? At Addiction Helper we arrange a number of in-patient and outpatient treatment services one of which is Counselling. If you choose to engage with this service we aim to provide a registered Addiction/Alcohol Counsellor within a 20-mile radius to your home. Counselling will be offered for a minimum of either 10 or 20 sessions according to an assessment of your needs. 10 sessions is at a cost of £1000 and 20 sessions is £1800. Your Counselling sessions will be individual to you with the main objectives being agreed with your Counsellor during your first session. All sessions are structured and tailored to meet your individual treatment needs. Counselling is particularly useful for those who may find it difficult to express how they are feeling or who have not dealt with emotional events from the past. Your counsellor will work with you to help identify and deal with the triggers and issues that are underpinning your addiction and associated behaviours. All of our Counsellors are fully qualified and are registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or with similar regulatory bodies. They will primarily use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Twelve Step Therapy to help you challenge and understand your addiction and achieve and sustain your recovery. How you structure your sessions will be arranged between yourself and your Counsellor, but usually we recommend one face to face meeting a week. If you are travelling, or for some reason cannot make a face-to-face meeting with your Counsellor, in some instances we can arrange Skype or Telephone Counselling. Counselling can be offered for all chemical addictions and also for process addictions such as Gambling, Sex and Love Addiction, Shopping
