Wherever a person is in their drug or alcohol journey, whether it’s been six months or thirty years, Rehab 4 Addiction is here to support you towards recovery.
Thousands of people are completing rehabilitation programmes every year and walking away sober to continue their life of healing.
Having an addiction usually means people spend a lot of time focused on getting drugs or alcohol. Although taking substances is unhealthy, this shows that there is determination.
One of the most important qualities needed to successfully complete treatment and live a life of abstinence is determination.

Rehab clinics provide environments that feel like a “home away from home”.
When you’re facing psychological and physical cravings, or feeling emotionally overwhelmed, or like you can’t see a way to overcome a trigger, a rehab clinic will ensure that all external factors are calm and comforting.
At a time of stress, you need nurturing and rehab clinics offer you that. There are private rooms for sleep, communal rooms to spend time socialising, and counselling rooms for one-to-ones.
Staff have years of experience and are friendly while being professional. There are various boundaries that are laid out from the start in order to keep residents safe.
Learning to appreciate and live with boundaries is an essential aspect of recovery after a long time where you have perhaps not applied them around addictive habits.
When you stay as a resident for a length of time at a rehab clinic, you get access to all the support and treatments you possibly need to overcome the substance misuse problem.
There are treatments that support the physical aspect of the addiction as well as the mental and spiritual aspects.
Addiction is an illness that permeates all aspects of who a person is, much like the experiences, memory, and traumas that have created the addiction in the first place. This is why it’s important to access all of the treatments.
Patients need a deep level of care and therapy and medications that work. Rehab clinics provide this.
Firstly, if you relapse, it’s important to accept this and forgive yourself just as you would someone else in your position. A relapse is possible, of course.
It does not signify the end of recovery, though. On the contrary, for many, it serves as a leverage point to continue the healing journey.
Relapse often reminds people of what made them need to start healing. A relapse does not mean starting again at square one because you have already started the healing process.
When you go to rehab, you and the staff will develop a 12-month aftercare plan. This will include action points on how you can manage cravings and triggers.
It’s imperative you practise these where necessary.
The aftercare plan will also include what to do in the event of relapse. There will be people you can contact and sessions you can attend to support you through this moment.
Definitely. Rehab clinics are designed to support people who have an addiction and mental health problems.
Drug and alcohol practitioners understand how closely the two conditions are connected. Therapists are trained to treat both.
It’s commonly acknowledged that mental health problems can cause addiction and vice versa. Rehab clinics welcome people experiencing any of the following symptoms:
There are both outpatient and inpatient options when you access treatment. Inpatient is where you stay overnight at a clinic as already mentioned.
Outpatient means you stay at home and attend sessions were agreed with the workers at the clinic.
Outpatient services are really useful for people who live busy lives and need to keep focused on their usual responsibilities such as looking after the kids or going to work. There is less input, which for some might be more suitable.
Outpatient services tend to be more useful for people with mild substance disorder or for people who are abstinent and benefit from keeping in contact with services.
Inpatient services provide 24/7 care, an immersive approach to treatment where all needs are covered, and a medical team to ensure physical safety.
They’re usually more appropriate were moderate to severe addictions exist.
To take the next step, all you need to do is give the Rehab 4 Addiction team a call. If you find talking difficult, please don’t worry, we lead the conversation and ask you a few questions.
This helps us to understand the addiction and what you want to gain from treatment.
The most important thing is, to be honest, wherever possible. This is one of the most important aspects of recovery.
