Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Ashbourne

Rehab 4 Addiction was founded in 2012, and provides expert advice on everything related to drug & alcohol recovery, particularly regarding treatment through rehab.

The main service we offer is arranging rehab at some of the best private rehab clinics in the country for those who need treatment. We do this by going through a fairly brief telephone assessment, the objective of which is to get to understand your needs better, in order to ensure that we can refer you to the right place.

Once we have enough information to go on, we can arrange your referral very quickly, and provide detailed advice on any of the practical implications of you leaving for treatment.

We understand that getting your head around the idea of going to rehab is a challenging thing. That’s why we are happy to provide as much information as you would like, for free.

Please call Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, where one of our dedicated team members will be happy to talk you through any concerns you might have.

If you are ready to move forward, we can refer you to a clinic near Ashbourne within a day or so. Alternatively, read on for some more information, and when you are ready to reach out, we’ll be waiting at the end of the phone.

Signs of addiction and denial

One of the biggest obstacles to overcome in a person getting addiction treatment is that person staying in denial that they have a substance abuse problem, to begin with. This can go on for months or years before they finally admit that they need help to quit.

If you are worried about the drinking or drug habits of someone close to you, one of the most effective ways of getting through to them can be through a planned intervention.

This involves members of the person’s family and other loved ones sitting in a room and giving their perspective in a measured, constructive manner, often with the help of a mediator.

This is one of the things that we are able to provide detailed advice on, once you call us on the number provided above.

Types of addiction treated at rehab

There are rehab placements for every type of addiction, including things like gambling and sex. At this agency, we refer people to private rehab clinics that specifically deal with any kind of drug or alcohol addiction.

As well as alcohol, substances such as cocaine, heroin, benzodiazepines, and ecstasy can all lead to addiction problems, which can be treated through rehab.

It is also worth noting that so-called ‘soft’ drugs such as cannabis can also cause addiction and other chronic health issues.

Long-term use of cannabis can be hugely detrimental to a person’s mental health, often contributing to feelings of paranoia, depression, and anxiety. If this has happened to you or a loved one, rehab would be entirely suitable for treatment.

What treatment in rehab looks like

Once you have settled into the facility and been shown around the premises, it will be time to begin the first stages of treatment, usually starting with supervised detox.

This will differ slightly depending on which substance or substances you have been using, and to what degree you have been abusing them.

Either way, it is likely that some withdrawal symptoms will occur, which can be monitored and treated by staff. In the case of withdrawing from drugs such as ecstasy or cannabis, these symptoms will likely be more emotional or psychological.

For example, you might experience increased anxiety, acute insomnia, or restlessness. In the case of alcohol, opiates, or benzodiazepines, the withdrawal symptoms will probably be more physical, and will need to be watched and treated carefully.

This could include muscle pains and spasms, nausea, convulsions, and others. Whatever you go through, it will be temporary, and the medical staff will be there to help.

As you come out of detox, you will soon move on to therapy, which is one of the most valuable aspects of going through rehab.

You will have access to mental health professionals around the clock, who will be able to help you get to the bottom of any underlying mental health issues that you have, which often go hand-in-hand with addiction and substance abuse.

The professionals will be able to provide a dual diagnosis where necessary, and can also prescribe medications if appropriate. They will also guide you through your therapy programme, which will take place over the duration of rehab.

This plan will differ from person to person, taking into account your personal issues, circumstances, and sensitivities. It is not possible to say upfront what exactly the treatment plan will entail, however, it will certainly include different types of talking therapy.

This might be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), counselling, DBT, group therapy, or any combination of the above. You will also be educated on the psychological issues that can make addiction more challenging – this may include stress management classes and other educational workshops.

The objective is to give you a comprehensive understanding of how addiction affects you, and the actions that you can take to counteract it.

All of the new information you have learned during your stay will be applied to your relapse prevention plan, which you will piece together with the help of a professional towards the end of your time at rehab.

This will involve outlining potential pitfalls that could lead you back to addiction in future, such as continuing a relationship with a person who is still in addiction.

It could also include taking proactive steps to engage with your own recovery, such as seeking out regular therapy sessions for the foreseeable future. You will also have access to 12 months’ worth of aftercare services, whichever rehab you are referred to.
