If you live in Broadstairs and you’re seeking help for an addiction to drugs or alcohol, do not hesitate to contact Rehab 4 Addiction for help.
You may be wondering if you’re ready to recover, but our question for you is: are you ready to face the consequences of a lifestyle of addiction?
With drug and alcohol dependency comes an increased risk of strokes, heart attacks and various types of cancer. It also hugely affects your quality of life in terms of relationships and employment, often leading to feelings of overwhelming isolation.
While recovery is not an easy journey, it reaps so many benefits.
It can restore broken relationships, bring fresh motivation, improve mental health, and ultimately help you to avoid the aforementioned severe symptoms of addiction.
If you’ve found yourself dependent on substances, recovery is the obvious option for you.
However, we know that telling you the worst-case scenarios will not necessarily lead you to sobriety. Recovery is a personal decision that you must come to on your own.
Whether you are keen to pursue sobriety or you still have your reservations, you can contact us for a non-judgemental discussion about your experience with addiction.
Our staff have heard countless stories of addiction, and they will use all they have learnt to provide you with insightful advice.
Once you have decided to accept help, you may be unsure where to turn.
Some people try to recover independently, but this is almost never successful as we need a strong support system in place to stay on the path of sobriety.
Others turn to the NHS, which is unfortunately underfunded with extremely long waiting times and inferior facilities.
For us, the best option is residential rehab. These are live-in treatment centres that boast excellent services including healthy food and exercise facilities.
If you choose to attend a drug and alcohol rehab in Broadstairs, you can begin your treatment process within days, unlike the years it can take with the NHS.
What’s more, you will be able to leave all your responsibilities at home. Rather than worrying about working, cooking and cleaning, you can put your full concentration on overcoming addiction.
When you arrive at residential rehab, you will find that the first step is detoxification. Your body will be cleansed of dangerous toxins, which restores your physical health.
Then, you can move onto addressing your mental state through various types of therapy such as group therapy and motivational sessions. This will encourage you to consider what brought about your addiction and what you can do now to keep it at bay.
The greatest benefit of residential rehab is perhaps its focus on personalised care.
From the moment you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we are taking into account your individual needs. On the phone, you will have an opportunity to state any treatment preferences (such as the location of the centre or the type of therapy you receive) which will go on to form the foundation of your personalised treatment programme.
Next, when you arrive in rehab, you will converse with staff and alter the treatment programme as you wish according to the symptoms you experience and how long you have lived with addiction, amongst other factors.
Overall, thanks to the private aspect of residential rehab, the funds allow for an extremely personal experience, which we believe is essential for long-term recovery. As different addictions require different treatments, an individualised approach means that you are getting the specific care you need to avoid relapse.
When tackling something as challenging as recovery, it’s natural to want to know how much time and effort we will have to put in to see results.
Having said that, it is wise to avoid predicting your exact length of stay in rehab. The general time frame is 28 days yet this differs slightly depending on the type of addiction, the length of time the addiction has been present, the client’s mental state and how well the client is progressing through their personalised treatment programme.
28 days can seem like a lot to some people, but it is the minimum length of time necessary for an excellent grounding in therapy techniques.
Outside of rehab, there really is no time frame for recovery as it is something you will carry your whole life. You will have to constantly avoid triggers and rely on your support network for help.
Handling addiction strengthens you, meaning you will be more capable of working through it the more you engage with healthy coping mechanisms.
