Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centres in Portsmouth
Do you, a loved one or even a work colleague have an issue with alcohol, drug use, or other addictive behaviour and live in the Portsmouth area? Are you looking for help? There are many reasons why you might be searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Portsmouth. Anyone can develop a drug or alcohol addiction at a point in their life, and while it can sometimes be triggered by an event or circumstances, there will often be an underlying need or issue that has not been addressed that causes these behavioural conditions. The Recovery Trust members don’t judge people for their addictions, we simply try to help them understand the underlying causes and lead them towards recovery through our best practice rehab approaches.
Is Residential Rehab treatment for me?
Whether you have an alcohol addiction, drug addiction, gambling addiction, prescription drug or any other type of behaviour that is compulsive, you’ll no doubt be overwhelmed by the choice when you search online. These range from home detoxes to alternative therapies and outpatient clinics. It can be difficult to decide which type of addiction treatment options might work best for you.
Many people think that it might be possible to do rehab as an outpatient. Experience and science show that for the vast majority – an extended period of residential rehab, where you are supported in safe surroundings is the best way forward. People in recovery find it difficult to be in their home environment after all this is might be the place where the temptation to drink or use drugs is most acute.
During private residential rehab, clients are supported through the detox phase and encouraged to open up during group therapy and one to one sessions. The programmes involve intensive drug and alcohol counselling and also cover workshops on relapse prevention, setting yourself up for the best chance of success. The aim isn’t just to get you off drugs and alcohol, but to ensure you have a comprehensive ‘box of tools’ you need to stay sober for the rest of your life.
It can also help to spend time away from the home environment, especially if you have a difficult home situation or could be influenced by friends who drink or use drugs. While several months or so, sounds like a long time to be away – when you look at the rest of your life, it’s going to be a fantastic investment and as we know time flies by. It’s well worth the effort to get the rehab help freeing you from the misery of alcoholism, drug abuse or other damaging behaviour.

Will I get support after rehab?
When you leave rehab the first few months or year is going to be the most difficult to get through, all centres will have their own aftercare programmes. The centre will also help you access support services around the Portsmouth area. Sometimes this means lining you up with new interests and pastimes, maybe following on from the new skills and life skills you have learned and begun to practise and hopefully enjoy. For some, it may mean helping with follow-on housing and getting into a better living environment and situation.
