Rehab 4 Addiction

If drugs and alcohol are wreaking havoc on your life, Rehab 4 Addiction can help put a stop to it. We are a successful referral service known for our compassionate advisors and speedy referrals. Having helped countless people through mild to severe addictions, we are prepared to help you too.

Can I Recover at Home?

It may be tempting to recover at home as it is cheaper and quicker than seeking professional help. Moreover, it is easier to hide your struggles from others.

However, we often downplay our addictions. This means that when you recognise you need support, you are often already dealing with harmful symptoms of addiction.

Not many people have the self-control to resist substances when attempting to recover alone. You will experience extremely strong cravings that make it almost impossible to stay sober. You will also be surrounded by triggers which is another significant obstacle to recovery.

The worst part of recovering alone is that it can be dangerous. You may experience severe withdrawal symptoms such as hallucinations and seizures without the support of medical professionals. Unfortunately, this has resulted in death many times.

Do not fall into the trap of believing that things will be different for you. Remember that your body is hooked on substances, so you need medical help to slowly teach your body how to function on its own.

Having said that, if you want to recover in the comfort of your own home, there are more secure options out there. For example, you could opt for a home detox and benefit from the support of doctors. This is not recommended for moderate to severe addictions as the intense structure of rehab is more successful.

What is Different About Recovering at Residential Rehab?

When you attend a drug and alcohol rehab in Farnworth, you get to live away from everyday triggers for a full month. You will live in a community of staff and patients who are all passionate about recovery, which helps you keep on track.

There are no responsibilities at rehab aside from following your personalised treatment plan. You will wake up early each day and focus on therapy. This forces you to delve deep into your mind rather than distracting yourself with work, relationships, and domestic tasks.

Perhaps the biggest benefit of residential rehab is the provision of 24/7 care. At any time of day or night, you can turn to a member of staff for support. You will receive the help of doctors, nurses, addiction specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists. Each and every rehab employee is trained to put your needs first.

When Does Dependency Turn Into Addiction?

Dependency is relying on substances to perform things you feel incapable of, such as dealing with your emotions (by numbing them) or giving you confidence. Without a doubt, this is unhealthy and dangerous. However, it is not a full-blown addiction unless you cannot stop consuming substances.

Addiction is defined by the inability to go without substances for 24 hours, the occurrence of withdrawal symptoms when you cannot access substances, and constant rumination about substances.

When you are addicted to drugs and alcohol, you will experience uncomfortable symptoms that impact your physical and psychological health. As a result, your behaviour will reflect that of someone who is dependent on substances. Here are some common symptoms of addiction:

Physical: weight gain or weight loss, changes in appetite, body odour, slurred speech, insomnia, pale skin, and red eyes.

Psychological: exacerbated mental health conditions, low self-esteem, low motivation, poor concentration, and poor memory.

Behavioural: spending less time with friends and family, going out to pubs/bars more often, unusual sleeping patterns, spending more money than usual, becoming defensive when confronted, and having issues at work.

How Can Rehab 4 Addiction Help Me?

If you relate to any of the previous symptoms, allow us to help. We will ask you questions to learn about your experience with addiction as well as your current situation. This involves asking about the severity of the addiction, the duration of the problems, and any mental health conditions you may have.

Based on your responses to these questions, we will decide which type of treatment is best for you. For example, if you are juggling many serious commitments and are suffering from a mild addiction, we may recommend a home detox.

On the other hand, if you have struggled with addiction for many years and it is only getting worse, we are likely to suggest a residential rehab in Farnworth.

After this conversation, our staff will immediately begin to research centres in Farnworth and identify one that caters to your needs. They will then pass on your details to the rehab centre, who will contact you as soon as possible to arrange a start date.

It is advisable to opt for as early a start date as possible. The sooner you begin your journey to recovery, the sooner you will be free from painful symptoms.

Rehab 4 Addiction will support you throughout the entire recovery process. You can reach out to us at any point during or after your treatment for advice or support.
