Whether you’re here seeking out help for yourself or a loved one, it can be difficult to acknowledge that an addiction problem exists, let alone find the strength to ask for professional help.
Although drug and alcohol addiction is way more common than widely known, there is a stigma attached to this illness that, unfortunately, causes those who are struggling with addiction, or even their loved ones, to feel shame.
Addiction does not discriminate, and the chances are, there is nothing that you could have done to prevent addiction, whether it’s your own, or in someone you care about.
The important thing is that you have now acknowledged the existence of this issue and it can be dealt with.
That’s where we come in! As a support, advice and addiction recovery advocacy service, we’re here to help. Whether you’re struggling with addiction or know someone who is, we can help you to source the help that you need.
We have a strong network of drug and alcohol rehabilitation partners set across the UK, so whether it’s Chudleigh or further afield you’re looking for help, we’ve got you covered.
Call Rehab 4 Addiction for free today on 0800 140 4690, or request a callback through our contact form.

One of the areas that we can help you with, is in the determination of the existence of an addiction problem, whether this is in yourself or in someone that you care about.
It can sometimes be easier for loved ones to notice changes in the behaviours or characteristics of someone who is beginning to struggle with an addiction, so often, friends and relatives will reach out to us.
If your loved ones have suggested that they think you may have a substance use issue, you may have reacted defensively, however, this behaviour, in itself, is a part of the denial aspect of addiction.
It’s therefore very important to be honest with yourself if you have been approached about your substance use. The chances are, it will be out of love and concern, and more often than not, that concern turns out to be well-founded.
If you are hoping to help find professional addiction treatment for someone else, we can help you to set up an intervention, however, it’s important to realise that nobody can be forced into rehabilitation, and only those who truly desire to recover from their addiction can be helped.
If you’re not quite ready to reach out, either with your own addiction or in concern that someone that you love may have developed one, the below common signs of drug and alcohol addiction may be helpful in taking that decision to pick up the phone and seek help:
There are, of course, other signs and symptoms of addiction and these can vary depending on the substance used, so it’s important to reach out for help if you have reason to believe you or someone that you know may be struggling with drugs or alcohol addiction.
Addiction is a progressive disease that will increase in severity over time, so it’s important to act as soon as you are aware of the problem.
It can be difficult to know where to go to find the best rehab treatment, especially if you are completely new to the concept. The good news is, there are options available in the Chudleigh area through our partnership network.
All of the addiction treatment facilities that we work with are endorsed by us as reputable rehab providers and operate under the strict guidance of the CQC (Care Quality Commission).
It’s as important to source the right type of treatment for an addiction, as the facility itself, as, much like addiction experiences, treatments will vary from person to person.
What will work for one, may not for another, and there are many factors that drive this.
Here, at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can take clients through a short assessment to determine which type of treatment will be most suited to them.
It’s important that we speak to the person struggling with addiction directly, as we will need to ask personal questions about substance use quantities, frequency and pre-existing health conditions.
Affordability and preference will also be considered, with the goal being to make rehab as accessible as possible to all who need it.
For people with established drug or alcohol addictions, it’s highly likely that we will recommend residential rehab, as this offers the greatest opportunity to make a successful recovery.
Those with new or emerging addictions, however, may benefit from outpatient services.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we know that you will have a whole host of questions, whether you are seeking out addiction treatment for yourself or a loved one, and we are here to set your mind at ease.
The majority of our team are in recovery, so have first-hand experience of the rehabilitation process and can therefore offer a real insight into what can be expected from attending.
Whether you feel that remaining local to receive drug and alcohol rehab in Chudleigh is the best option, or you would like to consider options outside of the immediate area, for anonymity and a sense of isolation, we can start the pre-admission process for you or your loved one immediately.
There’s no need for a GP referral, you can self-refer for our partner services with our help, or, if you’re here on behalf of a loved one, we can help you to organise that intervention that will hopefully lead to their own route to rehab.
Contact us today at Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, or ask for a callback via our web contact page.
All calls to this number are completely confidential, free of charge and you are under no obligation.
