The main service we provide here at Rehab 4 Addiction is getting people who need addiction help into a rehab clinic that is the best possible fit for them.
We also provide detailed information for free about every step of the recovery journey.
Call us for free on 0800 140 4690 to speak with one of our trained operators. If you are ready to seek treatment, we can begin an assessment, in which we will ask a few questions about your circumstances and goals in regard to recovery.
Once we get to know you a little better, we can make a recommendation for a clinic in your area that suits your needs.
Residential rehab is the gold standard of addiction treatment. While there are other standalone treatments out there that can certainly be helpful, there is nothing as thorough or complete as the care plan that you would receive in rehab.
Rehab clinics handle every step of the process, from detoxifying to mental health treatment and talking therapies. They also have specialist medical staff on-site, who will be able to help you recover as your body heals from months or years of substance abuse.
What’s more, you get to do all of this in a tranquil, safe environment, away from the noise and stresses of modern life. When you consider all of this, it is hardly surprising that rehab is the most effective treatment for addiction.
You may be apprehensive about making the large investment of money or time that private rehab treatment requires. We totally understand this, especially since we are mindful of how often addiction has a detrimental effect on a person’s finances.
However, the value that you would get from successfully completing rehab could far outweigh your investment.
Think of the money you could save by never touching drink or drugs again, not to mention how much more prosperous you could be in long-term recovery.
Leaving finances aside, think of how much happier you and your loved ones would be if you were to achieve recovery.
In terms of pursuing addiction treatment at rehab, there is so much choice on the market that it can be very difficult to make sense of.
Of the thousands of rehab clinics around the UK, all of them have different pricing, different standards of care, and different ways of operating on a day-to-day basis.
Some of them may also be designed for a certain group of people, such as women-only rehab centres, or faith-based rehabs. This is where we can come in handy – by recommending a specific clinic, based on your own requirements and needs.
Once you have answered a number of questions over the telephone with us in your assessment, we will be in a position to make a recommendation for your care.
From there, we can provide all of the relevant information around pricing, timeframe, your likely treatment plan, and the general characteristics of the clinic in question.
If you are happy to go ahead with our recommendation, we can make your referral quickly and easily. If not, we can discuss this further until you are satisfied.
You are under no obligation to accept a rehab placement by calling us up – we can provide all the information that you need, for free.
Life in rehab is very structured and organised. Once you have settled in on your first day, you will put together a detailed treatment plan that will outline how you will spend your time at rehab.
If you are still using, the first task on that plan will be to go through detox, under the supervision of the medical team on-site.
They will be there to help you manage any withdrawal symptoms, the physical side of which can be particularly unpleasant if withdrawing from alcohol and/or opiates.
This could include symptoms like dizziness, nausea, muscle aches, disrupted sleep, and acute anxiety or depression. These symptoms can be managed, and should not last for too long.
Your detox should be concluded within a week or so, perhaps slightly longer if you were in an extreme cycle of substance abuse. When you have completed detox, you will move on to starting your therapy courses.
As addiction is a complex condition, this will require a varied approach in terms of therapy. You will go through a programme of helpful talking therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and counselling, as well as educational workshops on various aspects of addiction, such as how to effectively manage cravings and other forms of stress.
You will also be encouraged to share your thoughts and experiences with others via group therapy sessions. This side of treatment can give residents a strong sense of community, and it can be very healing to connect with others in this way.
Therapy is obviously a huge part of rehab, and getting to the bottom of your issues will no doubt feel intense at times. This is why rehab treatment also includes sessions for light physical exercise, and other activities designed to help you unwind.
This could come in the form of yoga, meditation, tai chi, aerobics, gardening, or any combination of the above. The idea is that you are able to heal mentally, physically, and emotionally through your rehab experience.
As you come to the end of your course of treatment, you will consolidate the things you have learned into a relapse prevention plan, which you will need to adhere to once you leave the facility and start your life over.
This will be done with the help of a professional, who can help you to identify proactive actions you can take to stay in recovery going forward.
This may include attending group therapy meetings for the foreseeable future or arranging some other form of ongoing support.
It is extremely distressing and difficult to watch a person you love continue to damage themselves through drug or alcohol abuse. Often, it can be just as difficult to get that person to admit that they have a problem.
The most common way of fixing this is to stage an intervention, where the person’s loved ones can sit with them, give their perspective, and ultimately encourage them to seek help. Of course, this is a very delicate matter, and this is not easy to do.
We are happy to provide detailed advice on how to arrange and execute an intervention for a person who you are concerned about. This is one of the many services that we offer on our freephone number – 0800 140 4690.
