The admissions process

We know just how scary reaching out for help can be when admitting you may be struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction.

To ease this, we try to ensure our enquiry and admissions process is as smooth and simple as possible, to ease the stress you are undoubtedly feeling.

All enquiries are dealt with quickly and efficiently, meaning that you won’t be stuck on a long waiting list.

We also keep all cases 100% confidential, and will only ever use your information to determine the details of your treatment plan.

At the beginning of your enquiry, we will perform a quick assessment of you and your addiction.

During this assessment, we will need some information from you such as:

  • The length of time you have been using for
  • The substance or multiple substances you have used
  • Your family history
  • Any pre-existing mental or physical health conditions you may have
  • And the overall severity of your addiction.

It is important at this time to remain completely honest with our admissions team, as any falsified information could impact your treatment and therefore your recovery.

We use this data gained in the initial assessment to begin putting together your treatment plan.

This information allows us to gain a better understanding of you and your needs and will help us match you with the most suitable rehabilitation centre or outpatient clinic.

Once we have finalised the addiction treatment options that we think will be most beneficial to you, you will be able to decide how to proceed.

It is at this time that you will be referred to and placed in your chosen drug and alcohol rehab, whether that be in Crediton or further afield.

The process of rehab

When you arrive at rehab, you will be shown around the facility and will have time to unpack, get to know some of the staff members that will be helping you and get familiar with your new surroundings.

This will be your home for the next few weeks, so try to make yourself as comfortable as you can.

At this time you will meet with a doctor who will perform a secondary assessment of you. This assessment will delve deeper than the first, further evaluating your mental and physical health.

Again, this information is needed for us to finalise your treatment plan and make any adjustments if necessary.

If you have not undergone one already, you will most likely now undergo a drug and alcohol detox.

This step is often the most nerve-wracking among clients, but rest assured it is an important and completely safe step on your road to recovery.

A drug and alcohol detox will allow your body to begin healing, by flushing out the toxins left behind by substances from it.

The length of time this detox will take and your personal experience with the detox will differ based on your addiction, as different substances or methods of abuse (snorting, injecting, smoking, etc.) can impact how a detox goes.

During this detox, you are likely to experience a number of withdrawal symptoms, including nausea, headaches, dizziness, mood swings, muscle pain, and fatigue.

These side effects of withdrawal are completely normal and are expected during a detox, so don’t panic.

If for some reason you do respond badly to the detox, the team at your chosen rehab will be on hand to help. If necessary, a doctor can prescribe you medication to ease the withdrawal symptoms.

After your detox, it will be time to begin your other treatments, such as therapy and counselling. We cannot detail exactly which treatments you are likely to participate in at this time, but the most common forms of therapy that you may encounter include:

There are many other forms of treatment that you can expect during your time in rehab, like contingency management, which is a treatment that offers prizes or money as incentives for desired behaviour.

During your treatment, you can hope to achieve many milestones and progress more and more as you continue through your personalised plan.

You will have a chance to meet like-minded people that are experiencing similar situations to you during group therapy, you will be able to discuss how your addiction has impacted your loved ones in family therapy sessions, and individual therapy is a great chance to figure out the root causes of your addiction.

You can also hope to identify your personal triggers, learn how to avoid them, discover new coping techniques to replace reaching for substances, and generally prepare for life back home after rehab.

Life after Rehab

When you eventually leave the care of your chosen rehab facility, you will not be abandoned by us here at Rehab 4 Addiction.

We will not only provide you with a detailed aftercare plan that will guide you through the first steps of your new, substance-free life, but we will also be available 24/7 through the free helpline.

Though the main bulk of responsibility to continue your progress will now be on you, we will be there if and when you need us.
