Even before you enter the rehab facility, you will be in close contact with our trained medical staff to help you transition into our facility. They will help you start to prepare for your treatments both mentally and physically from providing a list of items to bring to answering any questions that you may have.

We understand that making the decision to enter rehab is a difficult one. Finding the confidence to tell the surrounding people from family and loved ones to work colleagues may be a factor to put you off. However, you can contact our trained staff who are here to help you and will offer some advice.

What is Rehab?

Rehab is short for rehabilitation. The act of rehabilitation is to restore someone back to good health. This is exactly what we aim to do at Rehab 4 Addiction in East Ham. Our rehab centres provide the private and calming environment you will need to help recover from an addiction.

In rehab, you will go through your detox stage, the necessary treatments that will be discussed in your consultation and then the aftercare programme. We structure our programmes, so they fit with you.

We understand that this can be a long journey, one that is a lifetime. It is easier said than done to jump into a rehab programme and to get sober. There are years of physical and psychological damage to undue from alcoholism and drug addiction.

That is why acknowledging your addiction is one of the hardest yet most liberating stages in this journey. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate your journey to complete sobriety. We will be with you every step of the way.

Rehab and the 12-Step Programme

Throughout our rehab treatments, we implement the 12-step programme to help you identify what your addiction is and how to overcome it permanently. The 12 steps were created and modelled by Alcohol Anonymous and have is now used in rehab programmes throughout the UK.

The 12 steps provide a structure to recovery and many patients find it comforting, especially as it advocates for that sense of community through fellow addicts in group therapy. Along with experiencing a sense of togetherness, the 12-step programme asks for self-examination.

By doing a little soul-searching, you will be able to identify why you fell into addiction and how it has negatively affected you and the people around you.

The 12 steps are:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs

By implementing these steps, you will allow yourself the space to introspect and understand how to stay away from substances and live a fulfilled life of sobriety.

The Cost of Rehab

There are two types of rehabs: residential and outpatient rehab. Both have their advantage and disadvantages, with cost being one of them. For residential rehab, you will be staying at a facility for the course of your detox and treatment.

For outpatient rehab, you will be going into rehab centres to go through your treatments but still live at home, making it the cheaper option.

For some, a combination of both works well. For example, you could have your detox in the safety of a residential facility surrounded by trained professionals and then going home for outpatient treatment for therapy.

If you opt for a 10-day detox with a single occupancy room, then prices range from £3,000-£6,000. Prices for a multi-occupancy room vary from £2,000-£4,000.

If you wish to stay at rehab for 28-days, then expect to pay around £8,000-£12,000 for a single occupancy room, or around £6,000 for a multi-occupancy room.

If you wish to undergo a home detox, then you may save money, but you will not be shielded from temptations. However, home detoxes do work for many people.

Expect to pay around £1,500 for a home detox. We may inform you of exact prices of rehabs in your local area. Please contact our helpline today for more information.

Myths of rehab

It is understandable that the word rehab can be scary to some. The images of stark white walls and locked rooms may come to mind. However, we are far from that. Our large rehab residential facilities offer spacious rooms and extensive outdoor areas to get the needed fresh air.

A rehab centre’s job is to reset you and prepare you for life outside without the support of drugs and alcohol. Understanding the myths about rehab and seeing the reality is a great way to motivate you or your loved one to start their rehab journey today.

Here are some more myths about rehabs

We often think that patients are locked away in a room during their stay at residential rehab. However, that is far from the truth. Patients are encouraged to go out into the communal areas and socialise with other people in the facility. This builds bonds as well as a sense of community spirit.

Although some rehabs promote no contact between patients and the outside world, we at Rehab 4 Addiction understand the importance of keeping those connections.

In our East Ham facility, we facilitate this through family therapy. This form of treatment allows patients and loved ones to build a stronger connection through understanding the reasons behind addiction to taking accountability for enabling the addiction and more.

Some people end up in rehab as a last resort because they think rehab is the final option. This is far from the truth. Getting into treatment as early as possible is key here. However, the social stigma attached to rehabilitation centres pushes many to not receive the care and support they need.

Learning coping mechanisms while you are still in the early stages of alcoholism is a lot easier than learning them when you have really spiralled into the dark hole of substance abuse. These myths only hinder people from going to get the help they need.
