By making the decision to click on this website you are already moving in the right direction.
The very first step in the journey towards long term recovery is recognising within yourself the need for change. That you want to live a healthier and happier life drug and alcohol-free.
Actually achieving sobriety right now may seem impossible, like a pipe dream that you think about when you want to do better. But now more than ever it is easier to get the help you need.
In recent years, those that are drug or alcohol dependency are now more likely to be viewed as someone struggling.
Someone who needs help and support, so that they can get healthy and start a new chapter of their lives.
Along with this, checking yourself into rehab isn’t surrounded by the same social pressures as it once was. People are much more open and understanding surrounding mental health treatment.
With help so readily available, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices available to you. Even just narrowing down your options to the Emsworth area there are still so many options for you to consider.
You may not even be sure if private or public treatment is the best for you.
Well, let’s take it slow, first, we can compare treatment options so you can get the information you need to take the next step.
While both options have their benefits and failures it is important to have all the information to make your decision.
First of all, we have the NHS.
We are very lucky in this country to have free health care and to be entitled to all the services the NHS provide. They can offer important treatment to those who don’t have the money to consider private healthcare as an option.
It is an option accessible to all the countries citizens and does contain incredibly hard-working and dedicated staff.
Unfortunately in recent years funding for the mental health sector is constantly being cut, with the funds being funnelled elsewhere.
Mental health workers are doing everything they can to keep the system running but they are massively overworked and underfunded. Because they are stretched so thin they simply are not able to treat everyone that asks for help.
Instead, they have to prioritise those they deem struggling enough. They do this by getting you to prove you need treatment through a long and mentally draining process that could still end with rejection.
Even when you are offered treatment it will be at the end of a very long waitlist that could take weeks even months.
Once you’re at the top of the list it is very likely that the spot in a rehab centre you will be offered won’t be in the Emsworth area meaning you will have to travel to each session.
The treatment you will be offered will also most likely be through outpatient care. This could be viewed as both a positive and a negative depending on your own preference and the severity of your drug or alcohol dependency.
In comparison, private rehab centres are just one phone call away.
You don’t have to prove you are struggling enough to get help all you have to do is ask. This is because when it comes to treatment for drug or alcohol dependency speed is key. The sooner you are checked into a rehab centre, the better it is for your recovery journey.
With private rehab centres, there are no waitlists and you will be referred to a centre within the Emsworth area. These centres contain dedicated staff who can offer one to one care personalised for your specific needs.
With so many choices available to you it may be overwhelming to find a rehab centre suited for your specific wants and needs.
That is why at Rehab 4 Addiction we take the stress away. All you have to do is give us a call at 0800 140 4690 for a free assessment of your needs.
During this initial assessment, our dedicated staff will take the time to get to know you. We aim to make an accurate referral based on your past experiences, mental health and what you want to get out of your stay at rehab.
From this, we will refer you to only the best rehab centres within the Emsworth area so you can focus on preparing yourself for your upcoming treatments and leave the stress of comparing centres to us.
While every rehab centre is different the core treatments tend to stay the same.
The first treatment you are most likely to receive upon your arrival at the centre is the detox which is the process of ridding your body of all drugs and alcohol.
This acts as the perfect starting off point as it allows you to focus on the rest of your treatment without the distraction of cravings.
It is important to know that the detox should never be done alone. As it allows your body to work through the withdrawal symptoms it can be very dangerous if attempted without medical supervision as these symptoms can easily become too much for you to handle.
Within the safety of a rehab centre, you will be monitored 24 hours a day during your detox. The centre’s staff are fully medically trained and can monitor your progress and most importantly administer medication should the withdrawal symptoms prove too much to handle.
Once you have completed your detox you will move onto therapy.
As substance abuse is often a result of self-medicating a deeper mental health problem. In order to treat your drug or alcohol dependency, it is important to get to the root of why you use in the first place.
You will be expected to attend group therapy sessions where you can be supported by others staying at the centre at that time. Every session is monitored by a fully trained therapist to track your progress.
Following your stay, you will be offered aftercare services which include a relapse prevention plan and possibly follow up therapy sessions.
The relapse prevention plan is designed to help you avoid triggers for your cravings and how to replace your substance abuse with healthier coping mechanisms.
You will also be referred to a local support group where you can continue to have your progress monitored and be supported by others also working towards long term recovery.
To continue on your journey all you have to do is give us a call and we can begin your free assessment of needs.
Good luck, we believe in you.
