We understand that it may seem daunting to begin this journey, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the different options for treatment centres. But you can take a deep breath and know you are now on track to getting the help you deserve.

While finding the right treatment centre in Broxbourne can seem a little daunting at first it is important to remember you are doing this for both your mental and physical health.

Very soon, you will be able to rest easy knowing you have a treatment plan and a dedicated staff ready to help you.

With our services at Rehab 4 Addiction, we aim to prioritise wellbeing and offer support throughout the entire process. You will not be going through this alone, you will be supported and encouraged at every step so that you can change your life for the better.

Common Questions

Many who are interested in our services often wonder if rehabilitation is for them and if the services provided would suit their individual needs.

You can find answers to many questions people have involving the process.

Different Centers

With a number of different rehabilitation centres available within the Broxbourne area, it is important to take your time so that you can find the one that will offer you the best possible treatment for your individual needs.

This process can be long and stressful adding to already existing anxieties that can exist prior to getting help.

Rehab 4 Addiction helps take away this unwanted stress and does the work of finding a suitable centre while you focus on your recovery. We get to know you, your needs, your health and your experience with substance abuse.

This is used to refer you to your ideal rehabilitation centre where your treatment can begin.

Your safety and wellbeing is the most important element our team considers while aiding in your recovery. You should know that any steps included are done with your best interest and recovery in mind.

To ensure you are getting the best help possible an assessment will be carried out to better understand your wants and needs before the referral will be given.


To begin with, a detox may prove helpful, however, for many, it is not enough to prevent the continuation of substance abuse. It can instead act as a starting point, with medical detoxes being an option to aid the body throughout the process.

A detox should be done with medical supervision as the withdrawals can prove dangerous. As a result, it is recommended it is not attempted alone and instead within a care facility where progress can be monitored and most importantly everything is done safely.

Care facilities offer 24-hour detox care, including medication, should the withdrawal symptoms prove too much and extra help is needed. A typical detox tends to last around 7 days and following this time the individual will be moved into therapy to improve their mental as well as physical health.

Mental Health

Your mental health will always be considered throughout the entire process, with mental health professionals being available within the rehabilitation centres. They are properly trained to help improve your mental health.

Substance dependency takes a toll on mental health just as much as the physical, so therapy is used to work towards recovery.

Various types of therapy sessions are used to improve your mental wellbeing, such as group therapy where you will be able to interact with others also going through rehabilitation.

Cognitive behavioural therapy aims to change and improve existing and unhealthy coping mechanisms that often lead to further substance abuse.

Motivation therapy takes cognitive behavioural therapy a step further designed specifically for the treatment of substance abuse.

We can recommend a suitable rehabilitation centre should chronic mental health issues be diagnosed and further treatment can take place in appropriate facilities within the centre.

After Rehabilitation

Many people following their stay in a rehabilitation centre often worry about returning to substance abuse, due to cravings when they are no longer being supported within the centre.

A fully completed rehabilitation programme will set the groundwork, allowing you to possess the tools to cope with substance dependency in the long term to avoid relapses and live a healthier life.

However, while rehabilitation is a good starting point, lifestyle changes are necessary to continue on with the journey once your stay at the centre has ended.

Behaviour and attitude changes are imperative to keeping positive and carrying on following the programme so that you can continue your recovery.

The rehabilitation centre will give you tools and tricks to take into your everyday life to manage your cravings. By using these coping strategies the risk of relapse should be minimised.

Through your relapse prevention plan, you will create a healthy routine, better interpersonal connections and the ability to see a life drug and alcohol-free.

The key part of the relapse prevention plan is aftercare. It is important to accept the aftercare that rehabilitation centres offer so that you can continue to get healthy once you leave.

This is done through local Broxbourne based support groups, allowing you to support and in return be supported by others who understand what you are going through.

These kinds of groups will give you accountability as well as a support network to keep you motivated to continue with sobriety long after you have left the rehabilitation centre.

Over time by following the aftercare recommendations and living a healthy lifestyle, addressing both your physical and mental health, the cravings should subside.

You will be able to live a life free of substance abuse and be happier and healthier because of it.

You have already done the first step through looking for help. Our referral services will support your next one and ensure a future where clean living is a reality.
