For those in the midst of an addiction, a life of ongoing sobriety can seem unattainable. While addiction is a chronic illness in itself, many are also suffering from undiagnosed mental health conditions.
Without the right support, individuals can slip further into a world of isolation, with the prospect of recovery slipping away. Moreover, those affected may be high functioning, and believe their substance dependence doesn’t warrant professional care
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we know that addiction can take many forms, and we cater to each individual situation. With years of experience in the field of rehabilitation, we’ve simplified the referral process for those in need of help.
Through an initial phone consultation, we’ll pair you with a rehab centre in Northumberland. Each clinic is recognised by The Care Quality Commission in England and Wales and is renowned for delivering outstanding treatment.
When imagining rehabilitation centres, most picture the way in which all addiction treatment begins: with a detox process. While the detoxification phase is indeed crucial to short term recovery, throughout a stay of around 28 days, clients can expect a treatment that’ll serve them long into the future.
In recent years, with the increased scientific research into addiction psychology, there are now more treatments than ever available at a private clinic in Blyth.
Key to longevity, patients will undergo one-to-one therapy with a trained addiction psychiatrist. In these sessions, the underlying cause of an addiction is identified, be it related to a mental health condition, past trauma, or environmental factors such as professional and social situations.
Identifying the cause of an addiction opens up a range of long-term possibilities for recovery. It allows an individual to cultivate coping strategies such as trigger management, and better understand themselves, moving forward.
With NHS outpatient services overstretched, those seeking medical attention in the wake of COVID-19 are faced with long waits and a string of delays. This has affected addiction services too, leading many people to opt for private rehab care in their recuperation.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll work with you and your loved ones to draw up personal requirements for a treatment provider. To form our recommendation, we’ll take into account your budget, severity of addiction, and an ideal setting for a rehab centre.
Working with 120 treatment providers in The UK and worldwide, we’ve made it our mission to select and provide the finest clinics for our clients. Whether you’d rather stay in a rural retreat, or prefer an urban environment, we’ll have a leading centre at the ready.
Of the misconceptions surrounding rehab care, the most prevalent is that each centre is akin to a hospital: complete with a cold and clinical atmosphere. Over time, films and other media have misrepresented rehabilitation settings as prison-esque, a picture that couldn’t be further from the truth.
During your short term residence, you’ll have a hotel-style room, complete with all the comforts you’d expect. Rooms are clean, modern, and have been designed to create a calming ambience using soft lighting and contemporary furnishings.
As well as individual rooms for seclusion, spaces for group therapy and socialising mean that all situations and stages of recovery are catered for. This includes an outdoor area in which to relax, using greenery and the healing power of nature to provide a relaxing space.
In terms of care, clients can expect a safe, supervised detox and round the clock access to friendly staff with years of experience. The team on hand will include medical professionals, nurses, and addiction specialists.
To try and overcome their addiction, individuals may attempt to detox from alcohol or drugs in their home environment, and without sufficient care.
During your stay at a rehab centre, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that all your needs will be taken care of. This can include taking medication such as Subutex or a sedative, in order to relieve withdrawal symptoms as toxins are removed from the body.
Following the detox process, individuals will partake in a series of therapies designed to address and change the behaviour surrounding addiction. These can be split into two categories: individual, and group therapy,
Individual therapy involves talking to, and building a rapport with an addiction psychiatrist on a one-to-one basis. Sessions will focus on unpacking the thoughts and emotions fuelling a substance addiction while maintaining a comfortable schedule.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy explores a patient’s thought pathways and uncovers patterns in substance use. Therapists will work with you to re-wire these negative thoughts, leaving you with a better understanding of your addiction and how to avoid relapsing.
Focusing on emotions or any past trauma, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy is often used in parallel with CBT to build on the positive emotions leading to lifelong recovery.
Individuals will also have the opportunity to partake in group therapy sessions. Formed of groups between 10 and 12, these regular meetings are a chance to cultivate peer support and solidarity.
In a safe space, those present can help each other by sharing their recovery journeys thus far and providing encouragement. Open discussion and even confrontation are encouraged, as they help to overcome denial and build understanding.
For many combating substance use disorder (SUD), a return to life in wider society can seem daunting, with the threat of relapse suddenly increased.
This is why at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive 12-month aftercare package, at no extra cost. We know that recovery is a long process, and appreciate the hard work undertaken by individuals during their stay in rehab.
Upon your return home, you’ll have information on therapy groups in the Blyth area that are easily accessible and have help to plan a schedule. For additional support whenever you need it, you’ll receive check-ins from a member of the team.
Family and friends are an important part of the healing process and are entitled to the same amount of support. There are therapy groups designed specifically for loved ones, and access to counsellors specialising in those taking part in someone’s addiction recovery.
If you’re located in Blyth and seek addiction support for yourself or someone dear to you, our team is here whenever you’re ready.
