Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Bedlington

Recovering successfully is all about mindset. You are capable of more than you think if you maintain a positive mindset and make the most of the support that is offered to you in Bedlington.

The best mindset to adopt when recovering is one of ‘this is hard, but it could be harder’. In other words, getting sober is hard, but addiction is harder.

Detoxing is hard, but drug-related illnesses are harder. Therapy is hard, but the psychological effects of addiction are harder.

Every path you take is going to be challenging, but it’s up to you to make it worthwhile, and we believe you can do that by choosing abstinence.

How to Get Started at Rehab in Bedlington

The quickest and easiest way to access rehab in Bedlington is to call us on 0800 140 4690.

We offer a free assessment where we ask you questions to determine your current situation and to learn about how addiction has affected you.

We may ask how long you’ve been struggling, which symptoms you’re experiencing, and whether you’ve got any mental health conditions along with addiction — we call this dual diagnosis, and it’s incredibly common.

Once we know more about your addiction, we will begin to research drug and alcohol rehabs in Bedlington to find one that’s suited to you.

Some factors we consider when selecting the facility are:

  • Cost
  • Locations
  • Available therapies
  • Size
  • Facilities

We encourage you to offer your opinion on any of these factors. For example, if you have a low budget for rehab, we will find an affordable option for you. If you are a regular at the gym, we will find a facility with great exercise facilities.

When you seek help via Rehab 4 Addiction, you can guarantee a quick referral.

Within days or possibly weeks, you will be informed that we have found the right centre for you. We will then put you in touch with the staff at this centre and allow you to organise a start date.

Unhealthy Mindsets for Recovery

Having a positive mindset is vital when trying to achieve long-term sobriety. If you enter rehab without the right attitude, your chances of achieving a sober lifestyle decreases.

Below are some examples of unhealthy mindsets for recovery.

1. Relapse is inevitable

Unfortunately, relapse is very common for victims of drug and alcohol addiction. This is because addiction is an illness that you have for life, so there is no cure that will take away the strong cravings you have for drugs and alcohol. However, it is extremely unhelpful to go into the rehab process believing that you will relapse. Plenty of people complete treatment successfully and never use substances again, and you could be one of those people.

2. I cannot recover from relapse

On the flip side, it is not helpful to believe that relapse is the end of the world. If you leave rehab and end up relapsing, you are still capable of getting sober again and improving your life. Thanks to the 12-month aftercare plan provided by rehabs in Bedlington, you will have all the support you need to get you back on track if you do relapse.

3. My addiction is too severe to treat

No addiction is too severe to treat. You will meet people at rehab who have been addicted to drugs for years and have experienced dangerous symptoms of addiction, and yet they are progressing through treatment well. With the combined methods of detox and therapy, anything is possible.

4. My addiction is too mild to treat

Equally, it is not true that your addiction is too mild to treat. Rehabs are open to anyone with a substance abuse problem, and seeking treatment immediately after developing a mild problem is the best thing you can do.

Healthy Mindsets for Recovery

And here are some examples of healthy mindsets for recovery.

1. I am capable of more than I think

So many people believe they are incapable of recovering. However, the truth is that anyone and everyone can recover. The most important tool for rehab is self-belief, so begin treatment with the belief that you are more capable than you think. With this healthy mindset and a team of professionals supporting you, you have all you need to recover.

2. I need professional support to recover sustainably

You cannot recover alone. Many people attempt to detox at home, and it often ends in serious health issues or even death. The only way you can recover sustainably is to seek professional help in the form of residential rehab, outpatient treatment, or a home detox.

3. I am willing to make changes to my lifestyle

As crucial as rehab is, it will not benefit you if you return to your normal lifestyle and immerse yourself in a culture of drinking and taking drugs. When you leave rehab, you need to be open to making changes in your life such as making new friends and adopting healthy coping mechanisms. Specifically, we suggest attending local support groups (such as Alcoholics Anonymous meetings), exercising regularly, eating well, and starting a new hobby that does not involve substances.
