Help for the addiction problem in St. Augustine’s
Drug-related deaths in Canterbury have almost doubled in three years – and many similar stories can be found in the local news site kentonline.co.uk.
Other recent news from the same news site recently run the headline “Kent Police raid Canterbury properties: 21 arrested and class A drugs seized” (source)
There is an on-going and growing problem with substance abuse.
For most local residents, this will not be news. Smaller towns like St. Augustine’s are not shielded from drug dealers.
Sadly we are all too aware of the increasing problem with county lines gang members and the misery they inflict on younger people.
We can’t prevent this from happening, but we can offer help to those that have been drawn into this, willingly or not.
Nobody wants to be an addict.
Nobody wants addiction to overwhelm and control their life.
But like any other disease, addiction is beyond your control.
When you can stop, you don’t want to.
But when you want to stop, you just can’t.
That’s how addiction works.
The first step to healing is a conscious realisation and acceptance that you are an addict.
You should also understand how addiction works and how it affects its victims.
Understanding how addiction works will also help you understand the purpose of treatment and how rehab can help you.
At Abbeycare, our programme is as personal as it can get to address your specific needs.
We work tirelessly with our clients to make sure they succeed and prevent relapse.
We take one day at a time to help towards your successful recovery.
Family support programme during addiction rehab
Families play a critical part in your treatment and recovery.
It starts with helping you understand and accept your addiction and getting you to enter a recovery programme.
A family programme is included in the treatment to teach families how to support a loved one in recovery.
It also helps bridging communication lines within families and heals the conflicts and damages caused by addiction.
It is also used to develop healthy boundaries among members and eradicate co-dependency that prolong and sustain addiction.
It aims to rebuild the lost harmony destroyed by addiction and help people become a family again.
AtAbbeycare, we conduct family therapy as group therapy and one-on-one counselling.
If you or your loved one is ready to take the first step in your recovery, please call us at 01603 513 091 and we will help bring back the joy and harmony in your family.
The higher power in addiction recovery
The 12-step approach is a crucial component of many rehab programmes.
An important concept in this approach is a belief in the existence of a higher power.
These higher powers to which you must submit – will help to restore your mental health.
The concept of a higher power that the 12-step approach invokes has nothing to do with religion.
Higher power refers to a person’s spirituality or a belief in the human spirit.
This can refer to a life force or a belief in the power of humanity that creates your moral standards that directs you to live life.
This can also be a belief in nature, music, or art.
This makes the 12-step approach applicable and effective to anybody including agnostics, atheists, or any person who does not follow a God-based religion.
In brief, the 12-step approach in rehab does not require a belief in God.
Theists undergoing a rehab programme, however, can easily refer to the higher power to mean God.
The higher power in the 12-step approach in the Abbeycare programme can be freely defined by the client undergoing rehab.

Gender-specific addiction treatment considers the biological and physiological differences of a person because of gender differences.
Research has shown differences in how men and women experience the effects of addiction, which in turn affects the treatment plans that they require.
For instance, most women that struggle with addiction also suffer from eating disorders and low self-worth.
Many women with addiction problems often also suffer some form of sexual violence or degradation.
On the other hand, men with addiction problems are more likely to be indulged in heavy drinking and smoking at the same time.
Moreover, men are also more likely to feel a hopeless failure after a relapse.
In consideration of these, Abbeycare factors in gender differences in crafting a personalised treatment plan of each client.
This way, we can facilitate gender-specific- addiction treatment.
Treatment is mainly planned to assist each gender to fight their addiction causing attributes through complete evaluation, remedial, and holistic therapeutic practices.
It is designed to effectively neutralise the internal and external triggers and factors that cause a person’s addiction and co-occurring mental disorders.
Call Abbeycare on 01603 513 091 and we will help you move from your past, look straight ahead and make every day a new day.
What to do after your drug rehab?
Addiction is a chronic disease that requires continued management and maintenance.
After finishing rehab, your next main objective is to prevent relapse.
You should focus on recovery and make an effort to stay clean.
You should dutifully follow your aftercare plan.
You may write a journal to reflect on how things are going.
You must participate in community recovery groups, which serve as your social support and new social network.
You need to take care of yourself by eating healthy meals, exercising, and engaging in enriching activities like reading a book, volunteering, or going to church and so forth.
Spend time with your family and the outdoors.
A life of recovery is both a challenge and an opportunity for you to live a better and more fulfilling life.
