Rehab 4 Addiction maintains relationships with various Berkshire rehabilitation centres. Choosing the correct centre is problematic for most given the vast amount of potential options available. We help thousands of Berkshire residents select the most appropriate form of drug and/or alcohol rehabilitation suiting their particular needs.
For Berkshire residents, Rehab 4 Addiction offers intervention services. Our therapist travels to your Berkshire home in order to help your loved one come to terms with his or her addiction.
A pre-intervention meeting is initiated before the intervention meeting-proper. This allows our therapist to collect relevant information concerning the addiction in question. To learn more about this service please click here.
Choosing to go into rehab is all about choosing life and choosing to begin recovery from addiction. The goal of a rehabilitation programme like ours is to help those fighting addictions to detox, achieve sobriety, and build the skills necessary to maintain it in the long-term.
We will help you to:
Our rehabilitation centres in Berkshire typically admit patients on a ‘residential’ nature. This means patients move into the centre for the length of their treatment. En-suite ‘sober living’ accommodation is provided. Patients are typically not expected to share sleeping quarters with other patients, although this may vary depending upon the centre you select.
Once you enter the centre a short assessment takes place. Following assessment, a programme of detoxification begins in earnest. During detoxification, all traces of drugs and/or alcohol are flushed from patients’ systems.
Withdrawal symptoms are monitored by the medical team. Symptoms vary in severity depending upon the addictive substance in question. Rapid detoxification is offered for certain substance addictions.
Once detoxification is complete, patients attend therapy sessions in order to treat the psychological aspects of addiction.
Therapy is conducted either in small groups with other patients or on a one-to-one basis with a counsellor or therapist. Therapy is essential in order to ‘re-programme’ patients’ destructive beliefs which encourage addictive behaviours.
Seeking private rehab in Berkshire can be daunting; the need to travel and treatment costs often put people off. Despite this, private rehab programmes are the most successful because of the increased resources and support they offer both during and after the treatment programme.
This is why private, residential programmes are, generally speaking, more successful than NHS funded or outpatient programmes. Publicly-funded programmes also have a longer waiting list, meaning those who are desperate for help have to wait for weeks or even months for the treatment they deserve.
Private treatment also offers a safe, controlled environment where there is less risk of relapse or influence from ‘bad habits’ or negative people. At our private rehab centres, everyone around you will be rooting for your recovery.
From the staff who understand every minute detail of recovery and addiction to your peers who are going through the exact same thing as you.
When you choose to undertake rehab, it is important that you know what to expect from the process. Most centres have staff ready to offer support and guidance whether you’re making an initial call or arriving to begin treatment.
All of our programmes begin with an initial phone call in which the staff will ask you some basic questions about yourself and your history of substance abuse. While these questions may feel invasive it is important that you answer honestly so that we can prepare to help you as fully as possible.
Below we have answered some of the most common questions relating to your rehab process:
Detox is a process of removing a substance or chemical, whether that be caffeine or cocaine, from a persons' body. Rehabilitation, by contrast, is a longer process centred on recovery from debilitating behaviours, habits, and traumas.
While not all addictions require a process of detox, all drug rehabilitation programmes include detox as the first step. Some substances can be effectively detoxed alone, but when someone is fighting an addiction it becomes increasingly difficult to detox without help.
In some cases it can actually be dangerous to do so, this is why detox is included in any drug rehabilitation programme.
Medical intervention in the process of detoxification may well be needed if someone is addicted to a very strong substance like heroin, if they have been abusing drugs or alcohol for a long time, or if they have underlying medical issues which may make detox dangerous.
Once you arrive at the centre, you will be guided through our intake process and detox. Intake involves physical and mental medical examinations as well as further questions which will be used to tailor your treatment plan.
The amount of time needed to successfully detox and finish rehabilitation is dependent on many factors including:
Our knowledgeable and compassionate staff will do everything to ensure that your rehabilitation takes place as quickly and smoothly as possible, but your chances of long-term sobriety and your health are our main concern.
For this reason, we recommend that you plan for rehab lasting at least 6 weeks (though some treatment programmes can last up to 12). We understand that this can make planning difficult, especially when it comes to employment, but your health is our first priority.
This is why we constantly review the needs of each of our patients and make decisions about discharge dates depending on performance and experience rather than an arbitrary timeline.
Each of our treatment programmes is tailored to the individual patient. After your initial detox, you will sit down with our physicians and therapists and discuss which strategies would be suitable for your recovery.
The therapy techniques offered at our Berkshire centres include:
Centres typically include access to a hot tub, steam room and massage chair. Fresh food is prepared by the chef each day. Centres permit internet access once therapy sessions conclude for the day. Centres have Wi-Fi and patients are permitted a laptop or phone.
Rehabilitation plans are tailored to patients’ needs. Centres offer a personal service to patients. The treatment takes place in a structured and supportive environment. Patients are of a mixed-age between 16-65 years and consist of males and females. Programmes typically last for four weeks.
Once you are discharged from our centre, it is important that you understand that you are not alone. We offer excellent aftercare resources which include one-on-one counselling, support group meetings, and like skill training to help you find a sense of ‘normality’, whatever that means for you.
Aftercare is an extension of our rehab programme designed to support you as you transition back into daily life and can be worked around your work, education, and familial commitments. Patients are free to attend centres for 18 months following completion of the programme.
We maintain relationships with several Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups in the Berkshire area. Patients are encouraged to join one such group upon the completion of rehabilitation. Groups undertake ‘12 step’ programmes designed to aid addicts now living in recovery.
The truth is that this depends entirely on your personal situation. However, studies do show that many people who seek treatment keep their jobs or even end up getting a better one. The key thing is to be honest with your employer about your situation, as daunting as that may be.
Many employers will be happy to accommodate you in the process of recovery if you are upfront with them. For our part, we do our utmost to ensure that our aftercare programmes are flexible so that you can get back to work as soon as possible following discharge.
It is our duty to put our clients in touch with rehab centres in the country.
For this reason, we work with rehab facilities all over the UK, finding the treatment for those in our care. We maintain rehabilitation centres throughout Berkshire, including:
By calling us and discussing your personal situation with one of our advisors, we are putting the right steps in towards safeguarding your sobriety and health.
