With a wide range of rehabilitation centres and treatments available, recovery can seem tricky to navigate. Whether you’re seeking help for yourself or a loved one, the process can seem overwhelming, and knowing where to start is often the hardest step.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we make it our priority to overcome these initial hurdles and guide you in creating a personalised treatment plan. We liaise with leading facilities in Canvey Island, offering both treatments and aftercare grounded in science. After all, addiction is a disease that requires a medical approach, to ensure your safety and continued wellness post-treatment.
Contrary to harmful stigmas, addiction isn’t a personal choice, but a deeply distressing psychological condition. As such, we understand that recovery can rarely be achieved by a “one-size-fits-all” approach, and there are factors we take into account when designing a treatment plan.
In order to match you with the best rehabilitation provider for your specific needs, we’ll first ask you to think about budget. While recovery is a worthy investment, we understand that it’s an investment nonetheless, and we’ll pair you with a centre to align with your financial situation.
Equally important in creating personalised treatment is understanding the severity of each addiction. This can depend on a number of variables- from the type of substance to biological and environmental triggers.
To optimise the success of your future treatment, we’ll also include an assessment of your mental and emotional wellbeing. Gauging your level of commitment, as well as any pre-existing mental health conditions, all contribute to facilitating your recovery.
Key to our ethos at Rehab 4 Addiction is our belief in the importance of residential care. Recovering from prolonged addiction requires an equally prolonged treatment programme in order keep recovery consistent.
Though outpatient care works well in some cases, returning home too soon can increase the chance of encountering triggers- making a relapse more likely to occur.
With this in mind, a residential stay in one of our partner centres guarantees the longevity in care that is so crucial to recovery. The length of your stay will typically range between 14 and 28 days, depending on the personal factors previously discussed- and there is always room for manoeuvre.
Comparatively, outpatient care can take months, and while recovery should not be rushed, treatment inconsistency is more unlikely while in residential care. The guidance of our Canvey Island specialists will ensure the consistency of a calm environment- a key factor in successful rehabilitation.
After you or a loved one make the decision to reach out, the initial step will be to arrange a phone call assessment. One of our highly qualified team members will perform a health assessment, and identify your specific psychological requirements.
Performing this preliminary assessment helps us to design your referral and select a provider tailored to your unique needs. Once we’ve worked together to draw up a treatment plan, a centre in the Canvey Island area will be chosen in conjunction with your circumstances.
After arriving at your pre-selected treatment centre, you’ll be guided through the detox process in a comfortable and safe environment. In this stage of your recovery, you’ll have access to 24-hour care and a team of medical professionals to monitor your progress.
Our rehabilitation centres offer a relaxing space in which to detox- and support will be readily available as and when you need it.
Depending on your specific addiction, you may be offered medication by a professional psychiatrist during this time. For those detoxing from opioids, the drug Subutex is often recommended. This slow acting opiate can ease the detox process by regulating withdrawal symptoms.
In its entirety, the detoxification process normally takes around 7-10 days, but it is important to note that this time frame varies depending on the individual.
Following this crucial step of recovery, the implementation of your personalised treatment plan can begin, and the variety of options are discussed with each patient beforehand.
You may be encouraged to take part in cognitive behavioural therapy- a branch of talking therapy that helps to refocus the negative thoughts and feelings surrounding an addiction. Psychiatrists may also suggest individual therapy to help you work through any personal issues that may have inhibited full recovery in the past.
Alongside these one-to-one sessions, group workshops focusing on nutrition, exercise, and wellbeing will also be available. Years of working in rehabilitation have shown that a full recovery relies on both holistic treatments, as well as symptom management.
At the Canvey Island centre selected for you, your treatment plan will help you plan lifestyle changes in the outside world, This can include participation in hobbies such as art, music, and exercise such as yoga.
These workshops and sessions are viewed as long term investments and will equip you with coping strategies to implement on your return home.
On your road to recovery, you’ll be supported every step of the way, both in and out of rehab. Once your treatment plan has been completed, you’ll be offered a series of free services as part of our aftercare package. We recognise that the hardest part of recovery can be leaving the safe space of a rehabilitation centre. To help you combat this, outpatient care will include consistent group therapy sessions, allowing you to connect with those on a similar recovery journey.
Support for loved ones will be available throughout the entire treatment process, and access to these support groups will be offered as clients assimilate back into their homes.
If you’re based in Canvey Island and across Essex, and seek addiction support for yourself or a friend/family member, our team is here whenever you’re ready.
