Many people with a drug and alcohol addiction experience intense guilt; they believe they are to blame for their issues. They watch how addiction affects their relationships, career, and health, and they believe that they are solely to blame for their downfall.
While you should take accountability for using substances, you must realise that addiction is a disease you cannot easily control. It destroys your mental and physical health, leaving you weak, vulnerable, and isolated.
Addiction can affect anyone, so do not make the mistake of believing that you struggle purely because of who you are and where you come from.
It takes a huge amount of commitment to get sober, and you face constant challenges such as detoxing and talking to therapists. However, it could be the best thing you ever do for yourself and your loved ones.
When you live a sober lifestyle, you are in a better mindset to make wise decisions, pursue a solid career, and build healthy relationships.
You cannot do this alone, but Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help guide you.
You are entitled to a free phone assessment with Rehab 4 Addiction whenever you are ready to accept.
This conversation involves discussing your current situation and how you would like to receive support for your drug and alcohol addiction. We take the time to get to know you, so no part of your treatment will be rushed.
Having said that, we aim to find you a referral as quickly as possible, so you are likely to receive one within weeks of our phone call.
Sustainable recovery is something that is important to us at Rehab 4 Addiction. There is no use chasing after a ‘quick fix’ and then relapsing soon after. We aim to find a treatment centre that promotes long-term recovery.
This means you will be treated for physical, psychological, social, and behavioural symptoms of addiction.
While we cannot promise you will never relapse again, we can assure you that you will be equipped to handle your addiction in a healthy way.
Rehab 4 Addiction has contacts all over the country, so you are able to select from a wide range of treatment areas. If you want to complete treatment at an outpatient centre, it’s best to stick with Bewdley as this allows for an easy commute.
If you’re keen to attend rehab, staying in Bewdley can be a good way of maintaining some normality and being able to see family during family visits.
However, you may prefer to take a break from your everyday surroundings and travel to another town or city in the UK. Whatever you decide, we can make it happen.
Most of our clients choose to attend residential rehab as this is the option with the best success rates.
Residential rehab in Bewdley is a 28-day programme delivered by addiction specialists, psychiatrists, doctors, psychologists, therapists, and nurses.
The two main treatment methods employed at rehab are detox and therapy. Everyone’s experience at rehab is unique as the treatment is personalised.
Physical detox is the first step of rehab for every patient. It involves withdrawing drugs and alcohol from your system to train your body to function independently. Rehab centres in Bewdley will always carry out detoxes according to NICE guidelines, so you will be in safe hands. It is likely that the detox will cause some withdrawal symptoms. Often, these are minor symptoms such as shakiness, fatigue, weakness, nausea, anxiety, and headaches. Sometimes, the symptoms can deteriorate and bring about hallucinations or seizures, but doctors will monitor your health to prevent this from occurring.
Again, everyone experiences therapy differently at rehab, thanks to the personalised approach to treatment. During our first phone call, we will ask you questions about your experiences with therapy to decide what your treatment plan should look like. These questions are simply designed to teach us more about you, not to judge you.
Here are a few examples of questions we may ask:
If you have had therapy before, you will be familiar with the process of discussing your trauma and discovering the root of your issues (in this case, the root of your addiction).
However, if this is all new to you, we will need to explain the purpose of therapy and bust some popular myths.
We want to make your rehab experience as useful as possible, so we avoid introducing you to therapy types that haven’t worked for you in the past. On the other hand, if a certain form of therapy has changed your life, we could search for a rehab facility that provides this exact type of therapy.
If you are a dual diagnosis patient, it is important for us to find a drug and alcohol rehab that specialises in your mental health condition e.g. anxiety, depression, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. When addressing your addiction, you need to also address your mental health issues, as they often go hand-in-hand.
Group therapy and family therapy are common types of therapy offered at rehab in Bewdley. While we strongly encourage you to try both, if you are against this, we need to know. This is so that we can find a facility where these types of therapy are not obligatory.
If you aren’t familiar with the common types of rehab, we will be happy to give you a brief overview (or even a detailed explanation) before you jump into it. Some common types are:
It couldn’t be easier to access help in Bewdley. Simply call us on 0800 140 4690 or request a call via our growing website. Asking for help may feel weak, but we believe it takes a strong, courageous person to realise they have suffered enough on their own and they need support for the future. Are you that person?
