Rehab 4 Addiction

Are you beginning to struggle with overconsumption of drugs and alcohol? Maybe you’ve received some negative comments about your substance use, or you’re starting to feel the side effects associated with long-term drug and alcohol usage. If any of the above apply to you, it’s possible that you would benefit from some professional support.

Many of these concerns are reflective of addiction and if you do feel as though you’re starting to lose control over your habits of usage, now is the right time to seek help, before the addictive behaviours take further hold.

There is a range of specialist rehabilitation facilities in the Brighouse area, offering both residential and outpatient rehab treatment. Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can recommend one of these courses of treatment for you before your addiction becomes a serious issue and leads to long term damage to the mind and body.

When is my drug and alcohol use classed as addiction?

There are many aspects to addiction and how reliant you are on drugs and alcohol will depend on how long you have used them and what your level of consumption has been. Initially, addiction forms a physical connection, which is where cravings develop. If you’re experiencing cravings when you don’t use drugs or alcohol, then it’s likely that addiction has begun.

The longer physical connections are acknowledged and maintained, the more chance you have of developing a stronger, psychological dependence on drugs and alcohol.

Once this has been formed, changes occur in the brain which makes this level of addiction more difficult to recover from. This causes a cycle of abuse, where your usage is intended to fix the issues that were, ironically, created by usage in the first place.

At this stage, it’s important that you seek professional rehab assistance, as it’s unlikely that you will be able to recover independently. We recommend that you utilise our referral services in order to benefit from one of our professional partner drug and alcohol rehab facilities here, in Brighouse and across West Yorkshire.

Why should I seek professional rehab treatment?

Once you have established that you may be struggling with addiction, it’s important to seek professional help in order to obtain the right advice. We can help you to determine whether you will benefit from one of the specialist residential rehab programmes available in the local area surrounding Brighouse.

Unfortunately, once your body and mind have formed a connection with drugs and alcohol, it’s unlikely that you will be successful if you attempt to recover independently. Your symptoms will advance over time, and it’s likely that mental health issues will arise and any pre-existing mental health conditions will be exacerbated.

It might feel as though you have control and will succeed in your own personal efforts, however, as well as having a poor success rate, this is actually a dangerous process to take on alone. As you have probably heard, a full detox is required in order to recover from addiction.

This process, in itself, is actually very dangerous, given that your body has become reliant on the substances you are removing. Withdrawal symptoms are challenging and rarely ignored when detoxing alone. They can also cause medical issues and therefore a detox should always be professionally administered and monitored.

In order to fully treat your addiction, the psychological aspect of your issue will also need to be addressed. This is not something that can be done alone, as it often requires a range of different therapies, looking at your triggers, how to avoid them and forming new healthy lifestyle habits.

All of this takes place during a structured rehab programme, which is why this option gives you the greatest chance of addiction recovery.

Deciding that you have a problem and would like to recover is the first big step, and you’ve already made progress through that decision. The next step is to reach out to us, here at Rehab 4 Addiction, so that we can help you find the best possible rehab treatment plan at a local partner facility that offers you a high quality of care.

How will I find professional drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres in Brighouse?

You don’t need to worry about visiting lots of facilities in search of the right programme for you, our team at Rehab 4 Addiction have this taken care of for you.

We can source a range of rehab programmes in any of our partner rehab centres in the Brighouse area, all of whom are trusted, effective facilities that offer leading rehab treatment options through a range of structured, personalised programmes.

Our short assessment will help you to establish whether outpatient rehab or a professional residential programme is right for you. Outpatient treatment is offered for those who are in the early stages of addiction and show minimal side effects.

If we feel that a psychological addiction has formed, however, you will be encouraged to enter a residential rehab programme for the best chance of a successful and long-term recovery.

All facilities in Brighouse, regardless of the treatment programme chosen, will offer access to consistent professional medical care from experienced addiction counsellors. The residential facilities offer privacy, in a relaxing and welcoming environment that is conducive to addiction recovery.

In order to achieve the optimum results in any recovery effort, you will need to be willing and fully committed to your choice of rehab programme.

We will offer our sincere recommendations, however, the ultimate choice is yours. We will only begin the admission process when you are absolutely comfortable with your choice.

What will my rehab entail?

All of our partner rehab facilities in Brighouse follow a structured programme of leading addiction recovery treatments, however, each individual will have a personalised programme, consisting of some or all of the aspects commonly used in rehabilitation.

Residential programmes offer the most advanced treatment options, with a broader range of care options and specialists available throughout the programme. The usual structure will consist of a full detox at the beginning of your stay, as this prepares your body to better receive the other, more holistic treatments that will follow.

Once the physical dependence on drugs and alcohol has been reduced, a range of therapies will be available and they will be added to your program, as per your personal requirements. This may include one to one therapy sessions, cognitive behavioural therapy and group therapy, as well as other similar psychological interventions.

These are used to address the underlying causes of your addiction, as well as any mental health issues that have resulted from long term drug and alcohol use.

This combined approach to treating addiction offers the best possible opportunity to recover and maintain your sobriety in the long term. Whether you feel that outpatient treatment or a residential rehab programme is right for you, here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’re here to support you and help you find the simplest route to the help you need.

How long does residential rehab last for?

A standard residential rehab programme is an average of 28 days long, as this offers the optimum time for both physical and psychological dependence to being broken and new, positive behaviours to form.

Will my family be able to visit during rehab treatment?

As maintaining contact with loved ones is important to your recovery progress, you are allowed visitors throughout your residential rehab stay, however, it will usually be on a set day. Family therapy is also sometimes available and often provides a strong support system, post-rehab.

How do I cope once rehab is over?

Once you have successfully completed your residential rehab, you may feel that you will struggle to maintain your recovery efforts alone. All of our partner programmes offer a substantial aftercare service to help you return to your new sober life and encourage your continued sobriety.
