Currently, there are thousands of people living in the UK struggling with an addiction who are either completely unaware or don’t want to accept that they might have a problem.
It can be hard to admit this to yourself, or to others because of the way many with addiction are perceived.
Not only this but once you come face to face with a problem, you’re forced to seek a solution. This doesn’t have to be nearly as stressful, daunting, or intimidating as it sounds.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a referral service that aims to help those in the UK. Especially those who are overwhelmed or unsure of what the first step to recovery looks like. We are in association with a number of rehabilitation centres across Broadland.
Our job is to create a personalised recovery programme suited to your personal needs within a centre that will benefit you the most.
We do all of the important work so that you can focus on yourself and your health first and foremost.
Over the past few years, the way society as a whole views addiction has changed massively. Scientists have proven that addiction isn’t a choice, but rather a mental illness, and those who have suffered from depression, trauma etc… are even more vulnerable to it.
As such, people have created a range of ways to help those struggling with addiction more so. In some ways, this is wonderful
There is less judgement, people are keener to be understanding and there are stronger support systems for those who need it.
However, there is also a lot of fake information out there as well as recovery fads, home detox kits and self-help tips that are proven to not work in the slightest
. Like a lot of information put out on the internet, this can be far more harmful than it is helpful.
These methods of recovery aren’t all consistent and reliable, something that is incredibly important during the healing process. Furthermore, doing these things at home doesn’t ensure that you’re cared for physically or mentally.
Although these methods appear enticing and exciting because it’s either cheap or free and seems quite simple, it’s important to note that effective and efficient recovery won’t be free, quick, or easy.
This is because addiction can completely alter the way your brain works. Whilst our methods can help to rework the way it views the things you are addicted to, it needs to be kept on top of consistently, and rehabilitation gives you the tools to do this. Recovery will start with us, but it definitely won’t end here, it’s an ongoing battle.
With the quick and cheap methods of recovery, they don’t offer you the tools to remain sober. They also don’t teach you how to keep the toxins out, or how to deal with the effects addiction had on your mental health.
At Rehab 4 Addiction we cut out the overwhelming confusion and false information.
Instead, we take you straight to the source where trained professionals and expert doctors can show you the way to a successful recovery.
Because of the wide range of treatment centres in Broadland, we’ll need to narrow down which ones are best for you. We’ll do this with an assessment that we’ll conduct with you over the phone.
We’ll need to learn more about you such as your budget, recovery goals, your addiction, and the symptoms that you’ve had to suffer with. We’ll also need to know about the state of your mental health.
After this assessment, we will review the centres in Broadland, figure out the best one for you, and talk to someone over there to help curate a programme for you.
Together, Rehab 4 Addiction and the right treatment centre, will figure out the treatments we believe you should do and the programme best for you. Whilst we’ll be organising your stay here with us, you’ll be free to turn down whatever doesn’t feel right to you.
None of this is compulsory, and so we can only offer you recommendations and guidance from our experts.
Whilst you’re within one of our centres, you’ll follow the three main basic steps. The first is a detox. During this time you will experience some withdrawal symptoms that will be cared for by doctors and medication.
The next will be rehabilitation, and then finally aftercare, which will continue for however long you wish after you’ve been discharged.
During the rehabilitation process, you’ll work through physical and psychological treatment as well as attend sessions that teach you about addiction, and how to remain on the path of sobriety.
You will also go through talking therapy, motivational sessions, holistic healing and have support from many others staying with you. Being surrounded by those who understand what you’re going through and can encourage is incredibly important.
People often underestimate the effect such support can have on the healing process.
As we’ve mentioned before, recovery starts here within one of our centres, but it won’t ‘fix’ you as soon as you leave.
It’s an ongoing battle that can’t just be snapped away, and as such, we need to ensure that when you leave our care, you’re fully prepared for the world outside of the safety of a rehabilitation centre.
We want to work through the trauma, stresses and experiences in your life that leads to your addiction so that these things don’t haunt you once you leave.
We also want to give you as many tools as possible so you can deal with addiction after you’ve been discharged.
Due to all of this, we need to remind all of our patients that effective recovery doesn’t have a time limit.
The average amount of time someone stays with us is usually 28 days, however, this can be longer or shorter, and whilst you’re with us, our professionals might decide that a longer or shorter stay might be better for you.
It’s important to note that if we ask you to stay on for a bit longer, it doesn’t mean anything bad or that you’re not doing very well with your recovery, merely that we think some more time with our team will help you more in the long run.
