What is drug rehab?
Drug rehabilitation is a process designed to help individuals overcome problematic drug use. This is achieved through various interventions, including counselling, behavioural therapy, detox and aftercare support. The goal of rehabilitation treatment is to equip individuals with the tools and strategies they need to achieve and maintain sobriety and to address the underlying causes of problematic drug use. It is a process that requires a great deal of courage and dedication and our team of compassionate professionals is here to support you every step of the way.

How can I avoid relapsing after I finish drug rehab?
Unfortunately, relapse is a common occurrence in recovery but it does not mean you have failed or the treatment has failed. Of course, no one ever wants you to relapse but if it does happen, see it as an opportunity to reassess and modify your own recovery plan. Remember, setbacks can be a part of the journey but it’s important to stay focused on your goals and keep moving forward.
Below we have created advice on how to try your best to avoid relapse:
- Create a support network: It is important to build and maintain strong relationships with family members, friends and sober peers who understand your journey and can provide encouragement. It might be worth staying in contact with the people you finished drug rehab with in order to share tips and advice on how to stay sober.
- Attend therapy sessions: It’s important to keep attending sessions therapy or counselling sessions after you finish rehab. Talking with others in the same situation as you, or even venting your emotions to someone who isn’t close to you (such as a counsellor), can do the world of good. You never know; sharing your experiences and triumphs after rehab could be a source of inspiration to others that are listening to you.
- Exercise regularly: Exercise can be an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety, which are common triggers for relapse. Regular physical activity can improve mood, boost self-esteem and help you stay focused on your goals.
- Practise the healthy coping mechanisms you learned in rehab: Life will always have difficult moments and it’s how you deal with these moments that could define you as a “user” or a “non-user”. It is important to remember and actively practise the methods that were taught to you during your rehab programme to help you deal with any stressors that may lead to relapse.
- Get involved in activities: Finding a purpose and meaning in life can be key to maintaining sobriety after rehab. Joining a community group, volunteering, or pursuing a passion can help reinforce positive behaviours and provide a sense of fulfilment.
