Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Bacup

Addiction is a mental illness that anyone can fall prey to.

Fortunately, there is an array of methods that can be used to treat addiction, however, there are also many scams online that promise a quick cure or promise to be cheap and effective, these are all lies.

If you’re serious about seeking help, rehab is the best way to go about it.

There is no everlasting cure for addiction the same way there may be for a strain of the common cold, addiction is something, like most mental illnesses, you learn to live with, to cope with, and to control.

Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help you do that. There isn’t any way wait times to receive treatment, as soon as you make that initial call we’ll begin the preparation to find the perfect rehab for you.

We’ll use an array of methods to help you work through your addiction and discover ways to help you continue along a healthy path once you leave our care.

How Does an Addiction Develop?

One mistake people make when they discover an addiction is to blame, berate or bully themselves about gaining this illness.

But one thing you should always remember is that addiction is something anyone in the world could suffer from, no matter their background, upbringing or income.

There are a number of different factors that could possibly cause an addiction, these are the most common:

1. Underlying Mental Health Issues:

Drugs and alcohol can often be used as self-medication to cope with a mental health issue. This could be an undiagnosed illness like depression or anxiety, or it could be something more concerning and underlying that you’ve struggled with since childhood like ADHD. The most common cause is a traumatic event that you went through at a young age and didn’t receive the help you needed afterwards.

2. Genetics

Genetics isn’t always the only reason, but if you grew up noticing a loved one that suffered from an addiction, or continued to suffer from one, it can normalise it or make it seem like it isn’t that big of a deal. This would make it simple for you to follow in their footsteps, or brush off the symptoms of addiction.

3. Influence

Unfortunately, peer pressure rarely fades as you age, and some might suffer from addiction due to being around the wrong people who might have pressured them/influenced them into heavy drinking or drug intake. Some of these relationships may also have been very toxic and could lead to trauma in the long run.

There are also different reasons for why an addiction may arise, but no matter the cause, we’re here to help you. It’s our job at Rehab 4 Addiction to help you begin the path to a healthier lifestyle, and we’ll do all that we can to guide you through this difficult time.

How Do We Help You?

It’s important for us to understand you and your addiction before we can properly help you. We’ll need to know what you’re addicted to, and after therapy and consultations, we’ll begin to understand when and why your addiction took place.

After this, we’ll begin to tailor a programme to you, your experiences and your addiction.

This means we’ll find a rehab that we know will be able to serve you best as well as decide on different methods of therapy we feel will support your healing journey the most.

This can be a different method of holistic therapy, art therapy, CBT, DBT, physical therapy and much more.

Certain places, such as the NHS, might be forced to do a ‘one shoe fits all’ method due to not enough funding.

Here, however, at Rehab 4 Addiction in Bacup, we understand just how different everyone is, and how unique everyone’s lives are.

As we’ve stated above, the cause of addiction can vary greatly, as can the symptoms, and as can the methods of rehabilitation.

What Happens After Rehab?

The average stay at rehab is roughly 28 days, however, some may end up staying longer or shorter, which is completely normal as everyone’s experience in rehab depends on them and their needs.

Once you leave rehab, you’ll be entered into our Aftercare programme, which is completely free.

The premise of this programme is to continue to provide you with the necessary support to get you through a very difficult part of rehab: leaving it.

This is a sensitive time as you’ve been protected from the outside world whilst you’ve been healing for quite some time, certain triggers may be a lot for you to deal with on your own.

Once you leave, it is now your responsibility to hold onto the tools that you learned whilst in rehab.

We’ll be there to offer you extra support, but we also recommend that you attend support groups in Bacup as well as confide in loved ones too.

With these steps and the assistance from our team at Rehab 4 Addiction, hopefully, you’ll succeed in a healthy recovery.
