Rehab is incredibly effective when it comes to treating addiction. We set up our organisation in 2012 with the goal of getting as many people as possible through rehab and into recovery.
We arrange placements at private rehab facilities all over the country and make your referral as easy it can be by making arrangements on your behalf.
It starts with a call to our freephone number 0800 140 4690, where you can speak to one of our advisors in confidence. When you are ready to proceed, they can talk you through your initial assessment, after which we can determine which of the clinics in your area would be right for you.
From there, we can provide all the information you need about that clinic, including pricing, finance options, and how long your treatment would take.
Although there are common threads in everyone’s addiction story, the reality is that everyone experiences addiction differently, and has different issues that drive them to substance abuse to begin with.
A person can be born with a genetic predisposition to certain substances or behaviours. Others can be driven to addiction through a difficult set of life circumstances.
Addiction can also manifest as a result of other chronic mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety, or as a result of unprocessed trauma.
At your rehab clinic, you will have the ability to get to the bottom of these types of issues, with the help of mental health professionals.
Although this process will not be easy, it will give you incredibly valuable insight into yourself and will reduce the chances of falling back into addiction in the future.
Most people can use alcohol or drugs recreationally without developing an addiction. However, there are certain behaviours that can indicate addiction, and you should look out for them in yourself or others.
You are likely to have developed an addiction if any of the following apply:
If any of these apply to you, the time is right to reach out for help. Even if you are calling on someone else’s behalf, we can help to arrange an intervention for that person and provide advice on how to deal with addiction.
Please call us on 0800 140 4690.
In terms of addiction treatment and care, rehab provides everything under one roof – that is one of the many reasons why it is the most effective form of treatment. This is how your rehab schedule looks, in approximate order:
Detox is an all-important first step for treatment. This means ridding your body of the last traces of whatever substance you have been abusing so that you can go into the rest of your treatment with a clear mind and healthy body. It can be an unpleasant process, but it is necessary to push through that temporary pain barrier, to come out the other side stronger and healthier. This is not something you should ever attempt to do by yourself – leave detox to the professionals. At rehab, you can go through it under expert medical supervision.
The exact method of detox varies depending on which drugs you have been abusing, and the timeframe and severity of your usage. If you have been abusing opiates or other harder drugs, you will be at high risk of physical withdrawal symptoms, and will need to have these managed, possibly through medication. This is something that the medical staff can discuss at length with you. They will be sure to help you in a way that does not interfere with your prospects of a full recovery.
Getting through detox is a great first step and an achievement in itself. Next, you will set about getting to the bottom of the mental and psychological issues that may have driven you to substance abuse in the first place. You will have a detailed personal therapy plan, which will involve several forms of talking therapy, such as counselling, psychotherapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy. You will also be encouraged to share with others who are also going through recovery, through regular group therapy meetings. This is a great opportunity to share your emotional burden with others in the same boat as you, and also to get a new perspective from other members of the group. As the weeks go on, you will have a much better understanding of addiction, and the various mental health issues that go hand-in-hand with it. This will be an incredibly vital tool in fighting your own addiction.
As you come to the end of your time at the clinic, you will be encouraged to focus on the road ahead. Relapse prevention planning is a very important part of the process, and you will have a great deal of help setting out your plan from the staff at the rehab. This plan is different for everyone – it will take into account your specific needs and personal issues. There may be social decisions that you have to make, in order to minimise your exposure to drugs and alcohol – for example, ending a friendship with someone who is still in addiction. Although this kind of decision is challenging, you will need to do whatever is necessary to stay sober and focused going forward. The plan will also detail some proactive measures you can take to stay in recoveries, such as attending ongoing group therapy or counselling.
