Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Broxtowe

If you’ve been taking drugs or alcohol for any length of time it’s likely you’ve got to a point where you really want to quit. You might not even know the full extent of the damage the substance has done to your body and brain.

It’s undeniable, though, that damage is what toxic substances do. Your mind and body will be affected and it can be worrying imagining how you can begin to repair the damage done.

It is possible to heal from the destruction that alcohol and drugs do. With a team of professionals who are experts in the field of addiction, you can be supported into a healthy life of sobriety.

What are the treatment options in Broxtowe?

When a person has been drinking or taking drugs for years, knowing where to go to stop is often not on the person’s radar. This might be due to active avoidance, or could be due to the person being so deep in an addiction that finding support to stop has never been a priority.

There are two types of services throughout various towns in the UK. Broxtowe residents have these options on their doorstep, so there will be opportunities for you to access them. 

People opt for different services depending on what their needs and goals are. 

In Broxtowe there are community-based centres where people can go to counselling sessions and group sessions as and when available. This option is funded by the government.

As beneficial as these services can be, the services are usually, sadly, very stretched. This means appointments can sometimes be tricky to come by. 

Support packages look quite different in outpatient centres to privately funded clinics. This option can be really effective, however, for people who have mild substance use issues. 

On the other hand, there are privately funded rehab centres. A team of experienced professionals work together in this environment to support people with a wide range of addiction and dependency issues.

The experience is immersive and focuses on ensuring that residents gain sobriety during their stay and have an action plan of steps to follow upon leaving.

What’s involved in a detox?

When you enter a rehabilitation programme, you could be offered a detox. If this happens, you’ll require a stay at either a hospital or at a private clinic.

If you opt to go to private rehab, detox is part of the programme. It’s the starting point of the treatment. All of the substances that a person abuse needs to be completely out of the body. This way the brain and bodily systems are able to start returning to normal. 

After so many years of toxins running rife inside you, all your chemicals and hormonal balances will be damaged. This, along with all the usual withdrawal symptoms, can make the early phase of a residential stay at rehab very uncomfortable.

If a person is dependent on a substance, it can be dangerous to quit the substance without it being medically overseen.

During a detox at a private clinic, there will be a doctor available to prescribe medication to make the process of detox easier where this is appropriate.

A detox generally takes seven to ten days depending on the substance that you’re coming off of.

How long will it take before I can go to rehab?

The government-funded services available in most towns tend to have long waiting lists and large caseloads. This can have a knock-on effect to future service users accessing treatment. Waiting lists can unfortunately end up being quite long.

When a person is open to attending a private clinic, then they’ll also benefit from shorter waiting times to be able to begin their treatment.

By accessing a rehabilitation programme through Rehab 4 Addiction, the waiting time can be reduced. This is due to our connections to services and once we have all the information about you to make a referral, we’re able to act on your behalf and refer your case as a priority.

Is rehab right for me?

Rehabilitation programmes will require a lot of positive personal character traits from you. It’s not easy quitting alcohol or drugs, especially when they’ve been featured in a person’s life for a long time.

Every single person deserves to be treated for addiction, though. With this in mind, addiction treatment programmes are constructed to accommodate every type of person.

No matter your walk of life, there are recovery options for you.

What attitude traits are going to be the most useful to you at rehab?

  • Commitment. You need to remember that even at the most difficult moments, you have made a commitment to yourself to heal no matter how hard it is
  • Determination. There will be moments that feel helpless. You must develop (with professionals) and use strategies to make yourself get through these
  • Openness and willingness. Some parts of treatment will make you feel uncomfortable. This is when the real work is happening. You have to be open to new things to create a new life for yourself
  • Perseverance. There will be times you face triggers and cravings, you must get used to feeling the discomfort of these and use the techniques you learn from professionals to get through these moments. The more you practise this, the easier and less frequent these moments will become

It’s worth bearing in mind that you already have these traits. You just have to learn to switch them from being focused on taking the substance to not taking the substance. 

Can my family support my recovery?

Yes, your family can support your recovery. One of the most beneficial aspects of attending a rehab clinic in the Broxtowe area is that it will be easier to set up family sessions.

It’s likely that your family will be experiencing a wide and varied range of emotions in relation to your addiction and treatment. The staff at a clinic will be able to give them guidance on how best to support your recovery. 

There will also be links to organisations that can support them. It can be very difficult loving a person with an addiction which is why services supporting both the person with the addiction as well as the family are very useful.

How do I find a rehabilitation programme to suit me?

All you need to do to get in contact with rehabilitation services in Broxtowe is contact the Rehab 4 Addiction team. On the call, we’ll be able to guide you through your local options.

After a discussion with you where we ascertain your needs, we’ll be able to recommend the most suitable programme for you.

Give us a call on 0800 140 4690 to speak to a member of our friendly team. Alternatively, you can also reach us through our website.

We look forward to hearing from you!
