When is the best time to go to rehab?

Going to rehab is always going to be a life-changing event. It’s a moment where a person’s life can completely change. For those who are desperate to recover, it can be the start of the rest of their life. A healthy life.

Along with the prospect of health and recovery, there is also the other side of the story. The fact that quitting alcohol and drugs is usually one of the hardest experiences a person might have to face.

There is never a right time to enter treatment. If you want to quit a substance, then the earliest you begin a rehab programme, the better. 

The quicker you begin treatment the easier it will be for your mind and body to heal. It is, however, important to remember that even when an addiction has been present for years, people can and do recover. 

With the right treatments and new, healthy ways of eating, drinking, and staying active, the body and mind can regenerate and become a place you feel comfortable in.

The sooner you enter a rehabilitation programme, the quicker you can begin to heal your:

  • Mental health
  • Physical health
  • Relationships
  • Finances
  • Housing situation
  • Education and career

Are there rehab programmes I can access in Elmbridge?

There are a few treatment options for addiction in Elmbridge. Your circumstances will determine what is the most appropriate in order to give you the largest chances of success. A referral with Rehab 4 Addiction will provide you with a thorough understanding of local services.

Essentially, there are two main types of services.  People can be treated by going to stay at a private clinic for a specific amount of time. Alternatively, there are services that people can access while living at home. 

A person who accesses services in the local Elmbridge community while staying at home will usually have different requirements. This type of service is very effective for those who are able to control how much of the drug they take or alcohol they drink. 

Service users will be informed when groups are held so that they can attend if they want. There might be some one-to-one input depending on how much staff availability there is.

For those who want to stay living at home and who need to keep going to work or looking after their kids, a casual rehab programme can really help.

How can a private rehab help me?

The other option in terms of a rehabilitation programme is going to stay in a private rehab clinic. Depending on the needs and budget of the client, a person can stay from anywhere between seven and twenty-eight days.

Private clinics provide the full package of treatment. There is a staff team available at all times. Throughout the day there are support sessions, therapies, and activities to begin healing. A holistic approach to recovery covers all areas.

There are teams to support a medical detox. This is of paramount importance for those who are living with alcohol and heroin addictions.

Doctors safely monitor patients and ensure that the substance is removed from the body in the safest way. To make this process as stress-free and pain-free as possible, medications can be prescribed where deemed appropriate.

Psychological therapies are provided for residents. This is a space where highly experienced professionals lead a person through understanding how addiction affects the mind and behaviour.

For deep healing to begin to take place, evidence-based therapies are essential. This is also where people learn practical strategies to support them through cravings.

As well as the above, alternative therapies provide an enjoyable environment for people to connect with their more spiritual selves.

This is also a place for ultimate relaxation and learning how to be comfortable and present in the moment. Yoga, mindfulness work, and reiki are offered to facilitate this.

At the end of a residential stay, people will have an aftercare plan to follow. This will involve maintaining contact with the centre for twelve months.

There will be action points for a person to keep in order to support them into a life of sobriety when they get back home. 

Rehab 4 Addiction suggests that people attend a clinic near to where they live in order to ensure that aftercare services are easier to maintain.

Can a person with mental health problems go to rehab?

Everybody deserves to be treated for addiction no matter what walk of life they’re from. Rehab 4 Addiction aims to support everybody, including those with mental health problems into treatment.

The professionals at a private clinic are aware of how deeply connected addiction and mental health are. They are experienced at treating individuals with a whole spectrum of mental health symptoms.
