Rehab is the best course of action for anyone suffering from addiction and substance abuse problems.
This is well-documented, and its success rate can be put down to a number of factors, such as the thorough and intensive nature of the treatment, and being able to go through that treatment in a secure, tranquil environment.
There are a huge amount of rehab centres spread all over the UK, and if you are not an expert, it can be hard to make sense of all the different options.
This is where we come in – at Rehab 4 Addiction, we utilise our industry expertise to get our service users into the best place for them, taking into account their personal circumstances and needs.
Our mission is quite simple – to use our expert knowledge and contacts, in order to get rehab placements for those who need them.
We have been doing this for almost a decade now, and in that time we have helped thousands of people get into long-term recovery through rehab placements and aftercare programmes.
We arrange rehab placements by first conducting a telephone assessment, in which we ask a series of questions in order to get to know you better, and better understand how your addiction has manifested.
Once we have enough information to go on, we can make a referral to an appropriate facility, and get you there as soon as possible.
In order to get started on your journey to recovery, you will need to accept and acknowledge that you have developed a problem with substance abuse and that you need help to recover from it.
For many people, it will take a while to admit this, perhaps through a misplaced sense of pride, or fear of social stigma, both of which are understandable.
When you are ready to accept and commit to treatment, you can call us on 0800 140 4690, where a trained member of our team will be more than happy to help you through the process.
Rehab is a comprehensive style of treatment that takes place intensively over a period of about a month.
Everyone’s treatment plan will be slightly different, just as everyone’s addiction affects them in different ways.
Still, there are certain aspects of treatment that you can expect regardless, as outlined below.
The more knowledge you have of yourself, and of your addiction, the better your chances at achieving sobriety and staying in recovery for the long term. This is the thinking behind your therapy plan, which will be diverse, comprehensive, and tailored to you. Your schedule will include a range of solo therapies, group sessions, and educational classes. You will get to the bottom of your issues through counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as well as sharing experiences with the group, which will allow you to get things off your chest as well as learning from others. You will also be educated on addiction as a whole, and equipped with the right tools to keep addiction at bay in the future, such as stress awareness and craving management.
Wherever you end up being referred to, you will need to go through detox before you really get going with your therapies. Detox is not an enjoyable process for anyone, but it is absolutely necessary as part of your overall treatment. You will be guided and supervised in this by the professionals at the centre, who will carefully monitor how your body responds to withdrawal, and will be able to treat any unpleasant symptoms that you may experience, whether that is insomnia, muscle pain, or chronic headaches. These symptoms are all quite unpleasant, but you are safe, and they will pass. You should not attempt to undergo any kind of detox by yourself – unsupervised detox is very dangerous, and can sometimes lead to seizures or even death.
Achieving recovery from substance abuse requires a varied approach to treatment, and many people benefit from having the right medication and sticking to the dosage as prescribed. The medical staff at rehab will be qualified to prescribe medications that may help you in your recovery. This may not always happen, but the option is there to explore if required. For example, they may suggest an SSRI if you are not currently taking one, or they might suggest switching medications if your current meds are not working. As you would expect, these suggestions will be carefully considered so as not to disrupt your sobriety and ongoing recovery, which is the most important thing of all.
We hope the above was useful to you in terms of understanding the rehab process. If there are any further questions you would like to ask, please call us today on 0800 140 4690.
We can begin your assessment whenever you are ready to proceed, or if you just want more information, for the time being, that is fine too – you are not tied in to any kind of obligation by calling us. We are here to help you with your recovery needs in any way that we can.
