Many are often hesitant to reach out for help mostly because of how rehab centres have appeared over the years. It’s been seen as an intimidating place that’s not often the most sensitive.
Or maybe even they’re ashamed of how they may be viewed for attending rehab. However, over the years rehabilitation centres have changed, as has how people deal with those struggling with addiction.
There is now a wide range of programmes and treatments available. The facilities are clean, welcoming and caters to a wide array of people with swimming pools, massage parlours and much more.
There are also a number of healthcare professionals on site there to help those struggling with their mental health, hoping to give them the best care.
Addiction is also not something to frown upon or judge. At Rehab 4 Addiction here in Breckland, we understand how the brain works, how everyone is vulnerable to struggling with addiction.
We don’t want anyone who comes to us seeking help or advice to leave feeling ashamed, uncomfortable, or judged.
There are a plethora of reasons why some people choose to not seek help. It can be as simple as budget, privacy, or the assumption that they don’t need help.
However, research has shown that attempting to rid yourself of addiction without professional help can be more damaging.
It can lead to an addiction spiralling out of control, physical illness and your mental health plummeting, all things that a professional should be there to help with.
Our rehab centres in Breckland is somewhere where your health is our number one priority.
There is now a range of ways to seek help from private rehabilitation, for example, there are a variety of budgets to suit everyone who needs help, as well as ways to gain access to extra funds from charities who see that you truly need support.
There is also different programmes that cater to those who would prefer to receive help from home whilst they continue working, or those who would enjoy being a resident within one of our centres.
The first step to learning more about this, however, is to get into contact with our team. The first thing we’ll do is conduct a pre-admission assessment.
This allows us to better get to know you and allows you the freedom to talk as freely as you’d like to without fear of discrimination or embarrassment.
Not only will this give you a safe space to be vulnerable, but it will give us the information we’ll need to figure out the best treatment for you as well as work out which rehab centre you will be most comfortable in.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, our job is to make getting help a simple process. We understand how horrible living with addiction is, and so we don’t want your journey to better health to add more stress to your life.
We’re here to remove the pressure of figuring out where is best and what to do by doing it all for you. All you have to do is make sure that your heart is fully into getting better and recovering.
Whilst the treatments for everyone attending rehab is completely different as it is all based on your experiences, addiction and mental health, our set programmes are generally the same for everyone.
Most patients will start off with a detox. This is the basic step to remove all toxins from your body in a controlled and effective way.
Giving up your addiction cold turkey, as some might do if they were attempting to do it at home, can be incredibly dangerous and painful. However, in a rehab centre, the withdrawal will be gradual and slow. This is to help your body steadily readjust.
One way we do this is with prescribed medication as well as ongoing professional support and care. The next step is rehabilitation.
This normally lasts up to 28 days; however, this number isn’t set in stone for everyone. Depending on your progress you may end up staying for a longer or shorter amount of time.
During this step, you’ll be working on your mental health and gathering tools to help you cope without your addiction once you leave us. We’ll be offering different kinds of therapy, support groups, CBT and even family therapy for those who feel they would benefit.
Addiction can come about in many different ways, sometimes it’s because of our environment.
But one of the most prominent reasons it happens is because of trauma, anxiety, depression, and other stressors that come up in our lives.
It’s not uncommon for people to use drugs and alcohol as a numbing agent for these things, and in order to prevent that from happening again in the future, we need to mentally deal with this head-on so we can figure out new coping strategies.
Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes with addiction. We at Rehab 4 Addiction can offer you guidance whilst a rehab in Breckland can offer you the tools to recovery, but a long-term recovery has to come from you.
It does get easier over time, dealing with our triggers and figuring out new coping mechanisms, however, control is the number one ingredient. That, and not being too over-confident.
That is why we tell everyone seeking help to ensure that they truly want to move forwards, that healing is something they can see themselves doing.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how much help anyone can offer you if your mindset isn’t focused on healing. No one can force you to get better either, you can leave our care whenever you want to.
However, many are dying due to addiction and their mental health, and we want to prevent that number from getting any higher, so we will always recommend that you stay with us for as long as you can.
That said, we’re only human and sometimes we make mistakes. Relapses might happen, and it doesn’t mean that you’re awful or weak when they do.
It just means you slipped up, and that’s okay, our programme is able to be there for you whenever you need that extra support when things like that do happen.
