Are you or a loved one currently struggling with addiction issues, but unsure how to reach out for help, or what kind of help it is that you actually need? As an expert advisory and referral service, Rehab 4 Addiction is here to assist you in getting the help that you need in London.
For those of us who are still in addiction, these first steps to recovery can often be the most difficult to take. Admitting to ourselves that there is a problem to be addressed is hard enough in itself.
From there on out, the sheer amount of different treatment options available can be overwhelming and exhausting to consider.
It’s important to keep in mind that while this pain and confusion is temporary, the benefits of recovery are real, restorative, and lifelong.
No one would ever say that recovery from addiction is easy, but pushing through that pain barrier is absolutely worthwhile, and we at Rehab 4 Addiction are here to help you every step of the way.
Recovery from addiction and harmful behaviours benefits not just our own lives, but the lives of our loved ones, our communities, and everyone else around us.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we understand that everyone has different needs, and different issues underlying their addiction.
With that in mind, we can help you to pick out a treatment path that is right for you, all within the Bermondsey area.
We will utilise all of our resources to get the right help for you – we only ask that you approach the process with an acknowledgement of your own addiction, and a commitment to change for the better.
It’s perfectly understandable to have a number of questions in mind about the rehab and recovery process, and how it differs from one person to another, depending on the individual’s addiction and circumstances.
You can reach out to us confidentially via telephone by calling 0800 140 4690 – we’ll be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Alternatively, we have answered some of our most commonly-asked questions about the process below.
There is something of a misconception that a person needs to be in the midst of severe substance addiction in order to be eligible for rehab.
While rehab will certainly be beneficial to those individuals, it’s worth noting that rehab is intended for those whose lives have become unmanageable due to any kind of physical or psychological dependency, chronic mental health issues, or problematic patterns of behaviour.
If your life has become unmanageable due to any of the issues listed above, it may be that rehab is the right course of action for you. Rehab 4 Addiction can help you find the right program and course of treatment, within Bermondsey and surrounding areas, or wherever is suitable for you.
In the context of addiction recovery, detox means ridding the body of intoxicants such as drugs and alcohol. However, the process is not as straightforward as suddenly and completely abstaining from the substance in question.
Detoxing from substance addiction without proper medical supervision can be extremely dangerous, especially where alcohol addiction is concerned. Alcohol withdrawal can produce extreme physiological symptoms, and can often be fatal.
This is why a medically supervised detox is the first step of recovery from alcohol addiction. This is one of the many services we can refer you to through Rehab 4 Addiction.
While detox is an essential part of the process, in most cases, it is not enough to bring about full recovery by itself. Addiction is a complex psychological issue involving both body and mind.
It is for this reason that various therapies, coping strategies, and relapse prevention will be an essential part of the recovery process. Detoxification is just the first step.
Yes, absolutely. With a number of different rehab facilities spread across Bermondsey and surrounding areas, there are a number of different options as to where you complete your rehabilitation.
Our expert counsellors at Rehab 4 Addiction will help you to decide which treatment centre is right for you – this will depend on a number of different factors, such as your addiction history, your triggers and other individual factors.
Once we have come to know you better as a person, it will be easier to make a decision as to which facility is the best fit for you.
Yes – we recognise that good mental health is integral to addiction recovery, and as such, mental health support will always be available through our facilities. As with the rest of the recovery process, there are a huge amount of different options for you to choose from.
This can include group therapy sessions, motivational therapy, one-on-one counselling, and any combination thereof. Our counsellors will work with you to understand your mental health challenges in better detail, and to use that information to pick the right course of therapy for you.
Even in recovery, there will be times in our lives where we struggle. During these times, it may feel more challenging for us to stay in our recovery, and not to backslide into addiction or destructive behaviours.
A big part of the recovery process is recognising this ahead of time, and educating ourselves as to what we can do to reduce the chances of this happening.
Through recovery, you will discover and learn coping strategies that are tailored uniquely to you, and find out how best to implement them in times of challenge. This is all part of the aftercare services that are available through Rehab 4 Addiction.
Recovery from addiction is a lifelong challenge, but with the right treatment and attitude, it is one that can be faced and won.
The purpose of rehab is to lay the foundation for long-term recovery and healthy, fulfilling life. No matter how bleak things may seem in addiction, with the right help, recovery is entirely possible.
