Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Barking

With worrying numbers of individuals, families, co-workers, and communities suffering the ill effects of drug and alcohol abuse, it’s no wonder that addiction heavily impacts our health, careers, and personal relationships in the UK. [1]

WIt’s normal to feel a bit lost when faced with your uncontrollable addiction or the drug and alcohol misuse of a loved one. Or you may have come to terms with the fact that you have a problem and feel it’s time to reach out for professional help.

If so, that’s great news, but don’t choose any just any rehab centre.

As recovering from addiction can be unpleasant and potentially dangerous, professional drug and alcohol treatment through rehab is your best chance of achieving long-term recovery safely.

If you’re looking for professional help and are local to the Barking area, Rehab 4 Addiction can help you get your life back on track.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, our focus is your physical and psychological health in the short-term and long term. Because of this, receiving treatment from our state-of-the-art rehabilitation centres and experienced medical staff allows you to focus on recovery in a safe and comfortable environment.

In addition, this environment gives you the best chance of minimal future relapse.

Understanding Rehab

Any good drug and alcohol rehab centre in Barking should use a combination of physical and psychological treatments that work in conjunction to provide the best chance of life-long sobriety.

When choosing Rehab 4 Addiction in the Barking area, this is undoubtedly what you’ll get. However, these treatments cannot go ahead until your body has been purged of the alcohol or substances currently controlling your life.

Therefore, when we first meet you at one of our facilities, you may already be experiencing drug and alcohol withdrawal or be ready to start the process.

So, the first thing we’ll do is recommend you start your recovery journey at our detox clinic, allowing you to withdraw from drugs and alcohol safely.

Minimising Discomfort with Our Detox Clinics

With good reason, medical professionals warn against going ‘cold turkey’‘. Never try to withdraw from drugs or alcohol without the assistance or supervision of medical staff. At home, addiction withdrawal can be dangerous.

As you go through detox, you’ll experience a world of common drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms like severe nausea and vomiting, headaches, blood pressure fluctuations, hallucination, and much more.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we can help you safely manage your symptoms with the help of our highly trained staff. [2]

But joining a residential rehab programme, you can safely banish all the drugs and alcohol substances haunting your body without excess harm or discomfort. By carefully managing your symptoms, we can ensure your optimum physical health.

Because withdrawal can be potentially fatal, we recommend you detox through our professional treatment centres.

Only once your body is rid of all damaging, harmful substances can you genuinely begin your recovery with a host of suitable treatments vital for recovery.

This leaves your mind and body primed to start your addiction journey and move on to your new life. Some of the other treatments you’ll receive from us include:

Dual Diagnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Unfortunately, addiction often comes with mental health problems. These problems are either predecessors to the addiction themselves as the root cause or have come about due to the addiction.

For example, addiction may arise as a coping mechanism in response to undiagnosed mental health conditions. Or others may have become depressed or anxious due to their drug or alcohol abuse or inability to get over their compulsion.

Allowing us to provide a complete psychological evaluation to diagnose any co-occurring mental health problems means we can provide the proper range of treatments that other facilities aren’t equipped to deal with.

Rehab 4 Addiction gives you the best chance of long-term recovery by treating these undiagnosed conditions with appropriate psychological intervention, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or exposure therapy.

CBT as talking therapy is vital in treating mental health problems as it allows you to retrain the way your brain works. You can then react differently to addiction cravings and triggers.

Combining this therapy with one-to-one therapy sessions with qualified therapists will also enable you to find ways for your brain to respond to addiction triggers differently, giving you the best chance of life-long recovery. [3]

One-To-One Therapy Sessions

Providing one-to-one therapy in combination with CBT offers a considerable benefit to patients who need help with these mental health problems, both to get to the bottom of their mental health problems and root causes of their addiction.

In addition, getting to the root of your addiction with this therapy at our facility means you can confront and battle the issues that led to your substance abuse or alcohol misuse, giving you a better chance of fighting these cravings in the future.

Although these difficult situations are never easy to confront, at Rehab 4 Addiction, we don’t expect you to do this alone. Our friendly and helpful staff allow you to confront your recovery with all the professional help and support you need.

Group Therapy Sessions

There is a good reason why group therapy has been a prevalent part of the recovery process for years. Attending group therapy to connect with and share your experiences with those who understand you is a building block of addiction recovery. When you participate in therapist-led group therapy with Rehab 4 Addiction with like-minded people, you’ll have created a crucial support network of people who all have one goal: sobriety.

If you are struggling with family relationships or a family member’s addiction, don’t be afraid to enquire about family support. We can provide family drug and alcohol support and family therapy sessions, depending on the specific needs you are facing.

Stress Management and Wellness Through Alternative Therapies

Stress can be a contributing factor for addiction, with some who suffer addiction unable to cope with stress either before or after their addiction has developed.

To stave off addiction cravings and learn new, positive habits, we will help you find more positive ways to manage stress.

Using alternative therapies for stress management means that stress is less likely to take hold in the future and cause addiction problems.

Taking part in holistic therapies such as yoga, equine therapy, meditation, mindfulness, and art therapy, gives you the best chance at learning to manage stress more positively.

These healthier habits, such as art therapy, can significantly impact those trying to achieve lifelong sobriety. For example, it allows patients to find healthier ways to express negative feelings.

What’s more, by combining essential physical and psychological treatments, you’re genuinely giving your brain the best chance to stay sober in the long term.

By developing these healthy habits over negative habits, you can find more positive outlets to stress and your addiction triggers when back in your own home.

Relapse Prevention with our 12-Month Aftercare Programme

We would never let you leave our centre without everything you need for the best chance of life-long recovery. We lead your treatment programme with therapies that help lay the foundation for long-term sobriety.

Still, it’s then essential to work on relapse prevention in preparation for you leaving our centres.

Setting you up for the best chance of success during your stay means teaching you to identify and cope with triggers and life’s daily stresses when you are home alone.

However, we also equip you with a 12-month aftercare programme that means you will have access to the therapy and support networks you need, to remain sober.
