Addiction is an illness that is known to creep up on you. It hypnotises the brain in such a way that it can be hard to even realise when an unhealthy habit has become a dependency.
Because of this, we’ve noted a few signs that show when you should consider seeking help.
If even one of these signs resonates with you then we recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible.
The first step to getting over this dependency is to attend a rehabilitation centre. This has been labelled as the safest and most effective way to recover.
However, dealing with addiction and trying to discover the right rehab for you can be very overwhelming. Especially with all of the information freely available to you, some that are false and some that can be very confusing to understand.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a referral service that works to help those suffering from an addiction to get the right help from a rehab in Craven that is best suited to them.
We’re here to help you to get on the right track to a healthy future.
Once we have found you a rehab centre that would cater best to your specific needs, be that age, gender, or addiction, we will then work on a treatment.
We will conduct a pre-assessment with you on the phone first, then we will relay the information you gave to us to the experienced doctors who work in your future centre.
There, together, we will organise a programme that will help you to get started on the route of recovery.
For everyone who enters rehab, you’ll need to do a medically assisted detox programme.
It’s important that we remove all of these unhealthy toxins from your body before we can work on ensuring they don’t re-enter your system again.
This time can be very hard for some people, especially those who suffer from an opiate addiction such as Heroin.
In rehab, we ensure that you are well cared for so that this difficult time is managed well.
You will be offered medication such as Librium to help cope with the withdrawal symptoms, and some might be offered stronger medication depending on the addiction and the symptoms of their withdrawal.
Some symptoms are:
Our experienced doctors will do their best to take care of you and ease these ailments as much as possible.
Once your detox is over, this period normally lasts 7 to 10 days, you’ll begin to settle into rehab and start to work on yourself, on your physical and mental health. Addiction can take a serious toll on both your mental and your physical body.
As we’ve mentioned before, it can cause illnesses that must be treated by a doctor, or it can cause you to become weaker and just generally unwell.
Due to that, we’ll work on re-building your strength and trying to get you back up to normal again, or as close to normal as we can. We’ll also take care of your mental health, one of the biggest healing factors in rehab.
There is a range of different methods that we use in our rehab centres, this is important as there is a range of different people we care for with multiple different experiences and issues.
We encourage talking therapy for all of our patients, and we will recommend family therapy for those who feel comfortable doing so. Group therapy is also a big part of rehab.
There are also holistic treatments that we encourage as well as many other different types of psychological healing techniques.
Our main goal at Rehab 4 Addiction is to motivate a long-term recovery from everyone who seeks help from us, so we’ll only offer treatments that we feel will be the most efficient and beneficial for you.
We’ll also continue to do assessments often to ensure that your treatment is working well or to check if you need to stay in our centre for a bit longer.
After you’ve spent as much time with us as you need, we’ll submit you to aftercare. This is our way of continuing to support you in the ‘real world’ where everything you’re protected from in rehab is presented to you once more.
Through aftercare, you’ll receive the support of others who can encourage you, and who have been through similar things to you, in group therapy.
The short answer is that it’s never too late to seek help.
We’re here for you whenever, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been suffering from addiction or how bad your symptoms are, we’re here to help you not only survive addiction but to thrive after recovery too.
In order to offer you the right treatment for rehab, we’ll need to do a pre-assessment, which means that we’ll need to learn about you and your addiction.
Our team prides itself on being non-judgemental, understanding, and compassionate.
So don’t worry about anyone you speak to when you contact us being disapproving, and don’t be ashamed to speak to us either.
Our job is to help you, no matter what your addiction is or if you’ve been dealing with it for 1 month or 15 years.
