Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Alston

If you are looking for help with addiction issues, the best choice you could make is to go to rehab. We provide referrals to some of the best private rehab clinics in the country, as well as free advice on anything to do with addiction recovery.

While you may be able to access some kind of rehab through your GP, it is likely that you will need to wait for weeks or months on end before receiving treatment.

For anyone who is using heavily, doing damage to themselves, this waiting period could be a risk to their wellbeing. With private rehab, you don’t have to wait – you can begin your addiction treatment very quickly.

Any rehab course that you access through Rehab 4 Addiction will also give you access to a year-long aftercare programme.

We make referrals to rehab easy. All you need to do is call us on 0800 140 4690, and when you are happy to proceed, we can get started with your free no-obligation telephone assessment.

We will ask you a number of questions about how you are feeling at the moment, what your circumstances are, and any other factors that need to be considered when it comes to your treatment at rehab.

Once we get to know you better, we can suggest an appropriate rehab clinic within travelling distance of your home. We can also tell you how much your treatment will cost, and how long it is likely to take from admission to discharge.

The advantages of rehab

It is commonly accepted that rehab is the most effective treatment for addiction, as demonstrated through many different academic studies on the subject.

But what is it that makes it so effective? Well, a lot of it has to do with the fact that it combines all of the different treatments that one can get for addiction, under the same roof.

A person can consecutively go through detox, therapy, addiction awareness education, and future planning, all within a month-long course at the same facility.

Not only that but the treatments can be planned out and integrated with one another, to ensure the most productive experience possible and great value for the patient.

This convenience is greatly appealing for anyone looking for help with recovery. If the person in question were to try and arrange all of these various treatments outside of rehab by themselves, it would be an extremely difficult thing to organise.

As well as being complicated, it would likely end up costing a lot more money than rehab would, while also not having the advantage of recovering in a secure environment that is designed for that purpose.

All things considered, it is easy to see why so many people choose rehab as their road to recovery.

How the referral process works

Although addiction is a very complex subject with a lot of varying factors, it needn’t be so complicated to get help. Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we make it as easy as possible.

All you need to do is call us on 0800 140 4690, where you can have a private, relaxed conversation with one of our highly-trained contact teams. When you are ready to begin, they can take you through our initial telephone assessment.

This involves us asking you a number of questions about your substance abuse issues – for example, how long you have been using, how it has impacted your life up to this point, and whether you have many responsibilities to consider, such as looking after children or other relatives.

We ask these things to get a clearer picture of you as an individual so that we can make the right decision on where to refer you for treatment.

We have been providing this service since we started operating in 2012, so it’s fair to say that we know what we’re doing.

As well as being experts in everything to do with recovery, we have strong connections with almost all of the private rehab clinics across the UK, including in Alston and all over the rest of Cumbria.

Once we have enough information to go on, we will make a recommendation, and if you’re happy to accept, we can get you referred there right away – no need to wait.

We can also provide all of the relevant information before you make a final decision – for example, what the pricing scheme is and what your finance options are.

We also provide quality advice on the practical considerations, such as how to arrange temporary care for your children, and how to talk to your employer about the fact that you need to go to rehab.

We appreciate that these things can be stressful and challenging, but they are necessary to consider, and we can help.

Combatting hesitance to reach out

One of the biggest obstacles in terms of getting addiction treatment is dealing with addiction denial.

This can go on for years, with drug users and alcoholics often convincing themselves that the only reason they are using so much is that they are going through a stressful time, or some other excuse.

The fact is, the longer a person stays in denial about their substance abuse, the more damage is likely to be caused.

If this applies to you, we encourage you to look inside and ask yourself whether you would be happy with carrying on with life in addiction. If it applies to someone else who you know, it may be time to stage an intervention.

This is something that we can provide detailed advice on over the phone. Being told that your addiction has damaged yourself and others can be hard to hear, but in many cases, this is the only way to get through to someone in addiction.
