Many recovering alcoholics and drug addicts will confess that the first step to recovery — asking for help — is often the hardest.
When you come to Rehab 4 Addiction to mend your current lifestyle, we keep this in mind; we carry the burden for you.
After our first consultation, where we gather details surrounding your addiction, we will take control of the situation by immediately searching for rehab centres in Burgess Hill that will suit your needs.
However, the most powerful voice in this process belongs to you. We simply present you with the best options for treatment, whereas you make the life-changing decision (with our help and advice, of course).
The thought of drug and alcohol rehab can be daunting, but once you know what it entails, you will likely feel less apprehensive.
No matter which rehab centre you select, you will go through detox and therapy. These are extremely effective ways of treating substance abuse.
Detoxing from alcohol or drugs means that your body is cleansed from harmful substances, ready for your fresh start with a sober life.
Though detoxing is worth it, it is not easy. It can involve mild to severe withdrawal symptoms for many clients.
Rest assured that you will always have access to medical professionals who will step in if your withdrawal symptoms become dangerous.
A couple of days after beginning your detox, you will start having therapy sessions which are a combination of individual and group meetings.
Therapy is a chance to delve into your experience with addiction and unpack the thoughts and feelings that may have led you to engage in harmful behaviour.
Through therapy, you will learn how to live with your addiction in a healthy way by avoiding triggers and actively pursuing sobriety.
As your last days of rehab are approaching and that initial detox feels so far away, the support that you have received will not come to an end.
You will be provided with an aftercare plan for those difficult 12 months post-treatment.
A key part of this aftercare plan is encouraging you to continue with group therapy. This allows you to practise accountability regarding your addiction, which reduces the stigma as well as preventing relapse.
Residential rehab is the most popular option for those who struggle with a moderate to severe drug or alcohol addiction.
If you opt for this form of treatment, Rehab 4 Addiction will try to find you somewhere to stay in Burgess Hill. Due to the lack of residential rehabs in the UK, this is not always possible, so you may end up travelling to a centre.
The benefits of residential rehab are: you are surrounded by professionals 24/7; you become part of a tight-knit, supportive community, and you are more likely to stay sober due to the rigid structure of rehab.
As for outpatient clinics, they can be superior for those who: cannot take too much time away from other responsibilities, would prefer to stay living in a supportive family unit, or cannot afford to attend a rehab centre.
Remember that there are plenty of options for rehab centres and outpatient clinics in the UK, so money does not have to be an obstacle to you getting the help you deserve.
You may have made a conscious choice to start consuming alcohol or drugs, but if you cannot go a day without it, it’s no longer a choice but an addiction.
This addiction will likely be affecting your physical and mental health, which has an impact on your work, relationships, and personal happiness.
If this resonates with you, please speak up.
Telling loved ones about your addiction means that it can no longer thrive in secret, and telling us means that you can immediately embark on a journey to sobriety.
