Rehab 4 Addiction

If you’re looking for alcohol rehab in Battersea, you’ve come to the right place.

Rehab can be a new and frightening experience, especially if you’ve never been through a recovery process like it. But here at Rehab 4 Addiction, our experts are here to help!

High-quality treatment is the best way to beat an addiction. Going it alone could be dangerous at worst depending on the substance you’re addicted to due to withdrawal symptoms, or in a best-case scenario could very easily not work without the guidance of experienced professionals.

Here, we’ve put together a guide on how to best prepare yourself for rehab, in addition to all the treatment options that will be available to you.

How to prepare yourself for rehab

Rehab is a process that, if effective, can change the course of your addiction and your life, for good. But it’s important to embrace every stage of the process and to truly acknowledge your problem.

Secondly, having a good grasp on the state of your mental health can be highly beneficial, as knowing your current headspace will allow you to get into a better one moving forward.

Before starting rehab, it’s first important to consider your motivations in seeking help. What do you want to get out of the process? It’s also important to know what to expect, so you can be prepared and feel more comfortable when you start – if you need help in your research, we have a handy guide to what you might experience below.

For the same reason, it’s also important to fully research either the course of outpatient treatment recommended to you or the facility you choose to go to.

What drug and alcohol rehabs are available in or near Battersea?

Speaking about Rehab 4 Addiction’s centre, more specifically alcohol rehab in Battersea, the nearest local centre is in a secluded part of London. This privacy isn’t the only feature that can be highly beneficial for moderate to severe addiction.

This specific centre also has a large garden area, with picnic space, horse riding stables and a small fishing lake, as well as a conservatory, a swimming pool and an on-site gymnasium. Plus, the treatment and residential rooms are located in the same building, giving you easy access to the entire centre.

Inpatient vs Outpatient treatment

You might have noticed earlier that we mentioned inpatient and outpatient as differing treatment options. This is one of the biggest distinctions that will be made when deciding the best treatment path for you.

Inpatient treatment is usually best suited to those with a moderate to severe addiction, as it involves treatment at a residential facility. Meanwhile, outpatient treatment might suit those who feel more comfortable at home, although motivation may be harder to find when you’re not surrounded by expert help and have easier access to whatever you’re addicted to.

These can seem like overwhelming choices, but journeys with Rehab 4 Addiction always start off as a simple conversation with one of our experts, to decide the best course of treatment for your personal circumstances.

What treatment options will be available to me?

Whether you’re guided towards inpatient or outpatient, a variety of treatments will be available on your recovery journey. These include:

  • Detox – Nearly all Rehab 4 Addiction treatment plans start with a detox, to cleanse whatever you’re addicted to from your body, guided by experts to avoid often dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
  • Holistic therapy – This is therapy that focuses on the mind as well as the body and can be highly beneficial, as it works on two levels.
  • Talking therapy – As the name suggests, this is the kind of therapy where you simply speak to a professional about more specific issues.
  • Counselling – Many people don’t know the difference between counselling and therapy, but there certainly is one. Essentially, counselling is more generalised, whilst therapy is more specified as we mentioned just above.
  • Health workshops – Remember those long-term coping strategies we mentioned before? In a rehab context, many of those skills will be learned through various workshops.

Aftercare services

Even after your initial treatments are over, a lot of support will still be there for you, including support groups like alcoholics anonymous, continued guidance from Rehab 4 Addiction as a whole and various relapse prevention plans.

If you’re struggling and are ready to get help, feel free to reach out to our team. Our experts would also be happy to help with any enquiries that haven’t been covered here.
