It’s a common misconception that drug and alcohol addiction only affects certain demographics, but in reality, addiction is a disease that can claim anyone, whether you’re rich or poor, old or young, lonely or surrounded by love.
There is no shame in losing control and it’s absolutely possible to regain it, with the right help and some determination.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we understand how overwhelming it can be to admit that you are struggling with addiction, let alone to seek help.
Many of us are in addiction recovery, so we have the first-hand experience of both addiction and rehab in London.
This means that we are entirely free of judgment and well-placed to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
NHS waiting lists for substance misuse and addiction recovery treatments are unfortunately very long, especially where the local authority has received less funding in this area.
We can offer you an alternative, fast-track entry into a rehab programme that gives you the optimal chance to turn your life around and achieve lasting sobriety.
Whether you need advice and support or our full referral services, get in touch today and have a confidential chat with one of our friendly call handlers.
All calls are completely free and you are under no obligations our number is 0800 140 4690, or you can ask for a callback via our web contact page.
It can be very difficult to identify an addiction problem in yourself, although it’s often likely that others have noticed changes in your behaviours. If friends and family or other people that care about you mention your substance use in a negative light, it can be a good indicator that you are heading towards an addiction problem.
It can be easy to become defensive, but try to pause and remember that your health is their major concern, even if they don’t articulate that well.
Other key things to look for are:
Once you’ve taken the first step, which is admitting that you need help, it’s time to find suitable help and support. Although some people decide to recover independently, there is very little success in achieving sustainable recovery without professional help.
We can take you through a simple assessment over the phone, which will help us to determine the severity of your addiction and what the best type of treatment program is, based upon that assessment.
We will help you to decide where is best to attend your recovery treatment programme, and can offer partner facilities in the Camberwell area, or throughout the UK, should you wish to recover away from home.
We will, of course, also take your budget and any pre-existing physical or mental health needs that you may have into consideration.
Our partners across the UK are able to offer both residential and outpatient services, however, the severity of your addiction will determine which offers you the best opportunity to recover.
Detox is usually the initial treatment with your tailored residential. Whilst there are risks involved with drug and alcohol detox, and we do not recommend that you attempt to do so alone, attending a detox clinic as a part of a residential rehab programme offers the safest and most comfortable detox experience available.
All of our partners are regulated by the CQC (Care Quality Commission), which means they are duty-bound to offer a high level of care. The medically assisted detox will be carried out gradually to minimise the withdrawal symptoms that you may experience.
Once you’ve achieved sobriety, you will be ready to tackle the psychological connection that you have formed with drugs and/or alcohol.
A range of professional psychotherapy treatments will be available to you, including a personal addiction counsellor. You will have the opportunity to take advantage of a wide range of treatments that are widely believed to provide the highest success rates for drug and alcohol addiction recovery.
You will leave rehab armed with a comprehensive relapse prevention plan, which will help you to maintain your sobriety in your life after rehab.
Although leaving the rehabilitation centre can be daunting, you will not be left to manage alone. There are at least 12 months of aftercare services included with all residential rehab programmes that are arranged through our partner services.
You will also be provided with contact lists for local abstinence-based motivational groups in the Camberwell area.
