If you know you need to seek treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction, you’ve already passed the first stage of acceptance. Now it’s time to take action and find treatment in Dacorum.
We know this is never easy. You may worry about the cost of rehab, the time commitment it requires, or the likelihood of relapse afterwards.
Rehab 4 Addiction will help you locate a centre that meets all your needs in terms of cost, length of stay, success rates, and more.
Deciding to recover must be a personal decision. If you are seeking treatment to please your friends and family, it is unlikely that rehab will work for you.
On the other hand, making the independent decision to go to rehab could change your life. When you have the motivation to recover, you can push through the hard times and remain abstinent.
There are many cheap, quick treatment options in Dacorum but they will not work in the long run.
For this reason, Rehab 4 Addiction recommends inpatient treatment to most of our patients.
However, this is not always the best option for you, so here is a quick explanation of the different paths you could take:
It is possible to arrange a home detox, where toxins are withdrawn from your system with the help of medical professionals. Each appointment will take place at your home, which can help to put you at ease.
However, as the home detox does not involve rehabilitation, it does not tackle the psychological side of addiction, meaning post-detox relapse is likely.
Outpatient clinics offer detox and therapy services, so they are more sustainable than home detoxes. If you choose this option, you will mainly recover in the comfort of your own home with daily access to the outpatient clinic for your therapy sessions.
The most sustainable option, residential rehab involves staying at a centre for around a month and engaging in daily therapy sessions. You will also have a detox at the beginning of your stay that lasts up to 10 days.
All drug and alcohol rehabs in Dacorum will involve a detox as your body needs to learn how to function without drugs and alcohol. When you undergo a detox, your physical health is restored which puts you in a good position to prioritise your mental health.
It is best to do the detox in a safe environment where you can be monitored in case of severe withdrawal symptoms.
Therapy will make up a significant part of your treatment at any rehab facility in Dacorum. It is the best way to treat the root cause of your addiction, which is often trauma, grief, or a mental health condition.
If you do struggle with a mental health condition alongside addiction, this is known as dual diagnosis. As you engage with therapy at rehab, you will find that your mental health improves.
There are many different types of therapy so try not to let past experiences deter you from having therapy at rehab. You will be able to try many types to find which one is best for you.
If you are struggling with substance abuse or addiction, rehab can teach you how to deal with your issues in a healthier way. You will be in safe hands for your entire stay, surrounded by a team of psychologists, psychiatrists, addiction specialists, therapists, doctors and nurses.
However, if you are not willing to leave your addiction in the past, therapy will not work for you.
It is vital that you feel ready to pursue abstinence, which may involve changing your entire lifestyle from the people you spend time with to the places you frequent.
The start of rehab is very intense. After the detox, you begin the rehabilitation phase which involves a strict daily routine. You will face early starts and early nights, daily therapy sessions, and 24/7 monitoring.
Thus, when you leave rehab and have to face temptations, you will have developed the skills necessary to do so.
For most people, rehab lasts 28 days, but this varies according to how quickly you progress through treatment. Inpatient treatment is always a commitment as you need to take the time to unpack your addiction and ensure you are not repressing any trauma.
While the stay at rehab lasts around a month, recovery is a life-long commitment. You have to wake up and choose recovery every day otherwise you can easily give in to temptation and consume drugs or alcohol again.
It is possible to visit some drug and alcohol rehabs in Dacorum to see if they are right for you. We would advise you to make note of key areas such as the type of centre, the addictions they treat, the facilities they provide, the structure of the treatment programme, and the aftercare options.
