Admitting to yourself that you may be addicted to drugs or alcohol isn’t easy. We’ve been there before ourselves and we know that it’s not easy to ‘come to terms’ with the fact that you are an ‘addict’. Likewise, it’s equally difficult to pick up the phone and seek out help. Furthermore, when you do finally reach out for help, you will likely be confused by the amount of conflicting information you will hear.
Fortunately, Rehab 4 Addiction is on hand to take the pain out of seeking out and completing drug or alcohol addiction treatment in Dorset. Over the last decade, we’ve built up an extensive network of treatment providers in Dorset. When you contact us, we carry out a free telephone assessment. This assessment then allows us to filter treatment providers so that we only recommend facilities that are ideally suited to your needs.
When judging the suitability of treatment centres in Dorset on your behalf, we take into account the duration and severity of your addiction. We also assess the existence of any ‘co-occurring’ addictions and mental health issues you may be experiencing. Once this information is discussed, we then recommend treatment centres to you in Dorset that we feel are best suited to helping you work through these issues to a successful conclusion.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, our team consists of trained addiction counsellors. The vast majority of our team discovered addiction counselling through necessity. That’s because we’ve been addicted to drugs and alcohol ourselves in the past. We’ve experienced exactly what you are going through, and we can help you overcome your addiction so that you can live your life in ways that bring you true happiness.
Below we list some of the ways we can help in your search for quality addiction treatment in Dorset:
Rehab 4 Addiction is well-known to drug and alcohol treatment services in Dorset. We’ve built up a strong relationship with the region over the last ten years. Whilst we do not directly offer treatment, we do operate a treatment referral service. This service is entirely free.
When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, you can access treatment immediately. If you choose to seek out treatment yourself, you can usually expect to wait for around 12 months before treatment becomes available due to high demand for statutory services.
When you contact us, we discuss your various treatment options in Dorset. We generally recommend you access treatment via a residential treatment provider in Dorset. This is because residential treatment is typically the most intense and structured form of treatment available today.
If you have not sought addiction treatment in the past, you may be confused about what it actually entails. The most important thing to remember is that you really have nothing to worry about. Addiction treatment is designed to put you at ease and give you the tools and techniques to live your life without drugs and alcohol. It’s thus important that you embrace, rather than resist the notion of seeking out help for your addiction.
Essentially, you may seek out treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Inpatient basis is also known as ‘residential treatment’. This is because you become a ‘resident’ of the treatment facility for around 28 days whilst you undergo treatment.
Treatment success rates are typically far high when treatment is undertook on an inpatient basis. Why? Because unlike outpatient treatment, when you choose to undergo your treatment on an inpatient basis you are entirely removed from all those ‘bad influences’ that encourage you to drink alcohol or consume drugs.
Upon arrival at a residential rehab clinic, you will begin your treatment by undertaking an initial assessment. This assessment is typically conducted by a psychiatrist or prescribing nurse. This assessment will form the basis of your detoxification programme. During your detoxification programme, you will likely experience a range of uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. However, medication is given to you to help to significantly ease these symptoms.
Whilst you undergo your detoxification programme, you will concurrently engage in therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions help to heal the emotional aspects of addiction. Typically, you will also suffer from anxiety and depression. In fact, it’s usually these mental ailments that fuel or even cause your addiction to arise in the first place.
Therapy sessions take place in groups. You will also receive ‘one to one’ therapy sessions so you can explore the more private and intimate emotional problems you are experiencing without the knowledge of the wider group.
Clients generally make significant progress during therapy sessions. They discover the precise reasons why they resort to excessive alcohol or drug use. They are taught to recognise the precise ‘triggers’ that cause their addiction to spiral out of control.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we only refer you to rehab clinics that subscribe to the ‘abstinence’ model. This means you will be given the knowledge, tools and techniques to live the rest of your adult life without drinking alcohol or using drugs.
All of the rehab clinics we work with also offer you an extended package of aftercare. This provides you with an ongoing safety net to fall back on whilst you begin your life ‘in recovery’.
