Are you seeking a drug and alcohol rehab in Cambridgeshire? Then it’s time to call our free helpline. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ve spent many years helping addicts gain access to the very best addiction treatment locally, helping them to turn their lives around and become clean and sober once and for all.
Quitting drink and drugs probably seems like an impossible challenge at this very moment, but believe us when we say that you can do it. With our help and the expert care and support of a team of specialist addiction doctors, you can overcome your issues for good.
One of the most difficult aspects of recovery and addiction is knowing when and if you need help. A key component of addiction is not recognising that your behaviour isn’t healthy or normal.
Another important component is wanting to stop, but being unable to. Addiction is also signified by an awareness of the negative impact your actions and behaviours have on yourself and others, but an inability to halt these habits.
Sometimes your loved ones will keep highlighting how ill you are, and will perhaps encourage you towards treatment.
For others, you may be spending time with people who negatively influence your drug or alcohol use, who claim this behaviour is ‘normal’ and OK.
To help you determine if you need rehabilitative treatment, we have provided a list of the most widely accepted signs of addiction. These are:
You may be denial about your addiction when you first contact Rehab 4 Addiction. You might reason that you can solve your issues on your own, or that drug and alcohol rehab in Cambridgeshire isn’t for you because you are in control of your addiction.
The truth is, it will be impossible for you to make a full recovery if you’re unwilling to admit that you have a problem. Once you have overcome denial about your issues, we can then move forward and help you find a suitable treatment facility in your area.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we have strong links with many of the best treatment facilities based locally.
Once we have carried out a telephone assessment on the telephone, we’ll then be able to match you with the right drug and alcohol rehab in Cambridgeshire to help you overcome your addiction. These clinics are privately run and offer residential rehab services.
Residential rehab is an excellent choice, particularly if your addiction is severe in nature. You’ll receive round the clock care and attention from a team of medical professionals, including specialist addiction doctors.
Living within a rehab centre in Cambridgeshire whilst you receive treatment will also ensure that you’re completely removed from temptations in the outside world, such as drugs and alcohol. This will allow you to focus on overcoming your addiction.
Whether you choose inpatient or outpatient treatment, the rehabilitation process follows a similar pattern during each programme.
Commonly, rehab’s four phases overlap slightly, for example, you could attend therapy during the detox phase to ensure your cognitive wellbeing is on track.
Below we have listed the general detox process that you can expect in our rehab centres:
Generally, the first stage of rehab addresses the physical element of addiction, and removes the toxins from the body. This stage is essential in any recovery plan, to eliminate the presence of any drugs, alcohol, or harmful chemicals from your systems. This is always recommended under medical supervision due to the dangers and risks it poses.
Under a medically-assisted detox, you will most probably receive medication to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms. These can range in severity, depending on the type of substance you have abused. Tapering-off programmes or substitution substances may be offered to you to help ease the symptoms, such as using Naltrexone for heroin addiction recovery.
Once the physical aspect of addiction has been addressed, the mental side to addiction must be treated. Here, many patients transition into residential rehab, also known as 'inpatient' rehab centres.
These facilities provide round the clock medical care to ensure your detox has been accomplished safely, as well as a range of therapies. Educational classes, alternative therapies and group meetings will also take place. This stage is all about addressing your cognitive needs, and getting to the root of your addiction.
You will have access to leisure facilities and exercise equipment, as well as a full nutrition-based meal plan to aid with your recovery. You will be in a completely trigger-free environment, and here you will be given the resources you need to build on your path to sobriety.
This stage carries on from stage two, and will focus more intently on yourself as an individual, your relapse triggers, and how you can achieve long-standing sobriety.
Maintenance can take place either in a residential rehab, partial hospitalisation programme, or day programmes. It is all about encouraging and empowering you to realise your life is better without drugs or alcohol.
Any decent recovery programme will entail an aftercare programme. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we offer 12 months free aftercare for all of our patients, meaning you can access any of our therapies and resources once you leave.
Aftercare consists of access to 12 Step Programmes, Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous groups, and access to the therapists and counsellors you worked with during rehab.
It’s important to know what to expect from any treatment facility you sign up to. For us, tailoring our approach to your individual needs is key.
This is why we start with an initial assessment, to determine the type of treatment programme you require, and to understand any additional needs you may have.
Our medically-assisted detox plans are world-class and will help alleviate most of the withdrawal symptoms you are likely to face.
Our medical team will be on hand 24/7 to monitor your progress during this physically challenging stage, and offer any medication to help your situation. You can expect to be treated with the highest level of care, both medically and humanely.
The rehab phase of our programme is second-to-none. You will have access to a multitude of therapies, which includes CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing. Group therapy is also an extremely valuable component of our rehab programmes.
We are entirely committed to helping you towards a longstanding recovery, which is done in a completely controlled and stress-free environment.
We will also provide you with the skills and resources needed to maintain this newfound sobriety once you leave our facilities. You will also have the unending support of our counsellors and therapists, as well as your peers who will empathise with your situation.
Nutritional support, full access to leisure facilities, use of spa and gym, alternative therapies, private accommodation and unlimited access to recovery resources is what you can expect from us.
Therapy is usually conducted after the detox phase of recovery when the individual is physically sober and can cognitively understand the point of therapy.
Drug and alcohol rehab therapy focuses primarily on the person’s behaviours and aims to change these attitudes to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Some of the most common therapies we use are:
Rehab will be one of the most profound stages of your life, which is why it is important to prepare both mentally and pragmatically.
If you’re thinking of a ‘quick fix’ to your addiction, then rehab isn’t the place for you: it requires patience, dedication, and commitment. You need to enter the facility with a clear head of what your reasons for treatment are.
Some of the ways you can prepare for rehab are listed below:
1. Make alternative arrangements for outside commitments: your whole focus during rehab should be on yourself and your recovery. Thinking about life outside of rehab and worrying about your responsibilities will not help. Tie up any loose ends at work, with your family or with financial commitments
2. Pack the essentials: while you are welcome to bring (within health and safety measures) items from home that are sentimental to you, really consider if things such as photographs, memorabilia or things that remind you of dark times will really help with your recovery
3. Bring only the stuff you really need (clothes, washing items, a notepad) so you don’t risk becoming distracted. You can check with our centres before arriving as to whether you’re allowed to bring certain items like cellphones, mp3 players, or certain reading materials
4. Tell your loved ones: these are the people who have seen you at your lowest. They are probably thrilled that you are finally getting the help you need. Filling up on encouragement from them will help you keep strong and bold in your decision to start recovery
5. Make sure you have covered your medical costs before entering our rehab centres. Some of our facilities allow you to create a payment plan before if you cannot meet the entire sum. Just make sure you have a financial structure in place to cover your stay. You can find out more about our prices here
Ultimately, the decision of which addiction recovery programme to opt for is down to you. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when deciding on which type of programme:
Write a list of your needs: do you have medical requirements or learning difficulties?
Asking yourself what’s really important to you is a good start: remember, write things down and once you have discovered the answer, place them in a ‘pros and cons’ list. This will enable you to view the overall feel of that particular facility and will help you choose one over the other.
Don’t forget, our admissions team is always on hand to answer any of the above questions, and many more for you. We have treated thousands of patients and have helped hundreds upon hundreds of families towards a happier life.
As anyone recovering from addiction will tell you, recovery doesn’t end once you leave rehab. In fact, your real life is just beginning.
Although you will have been equipped with specific tools and resources to help tackle triggers and curb cravings, the real world is the real test. Recovery outside of rehab can be wonderful and refreshing: but we know it can also appear intimidating and scary.
This is why our tailored aftercare programmes are in place. They mean you are never alone, and can always count on us to help you whenever you need. You will have access to therapists, counsellors and psychiatrists who helped you on your journey.
You will also be supported by programmes such as SMART Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and many more. Attending these sessions regularly will be fundamental in helping you maintain sobriety.
It’s about time that you learned how to enjoy life for what it is, and revel in the wonders that sobriety gives you once you leave rehab. This should all be done while minimizing the risk of relapse, avoiding certain places, people and environments.
