Where a drug or alcohol problem exists there is a world of circumstances around it. A life that has been dedicated to using a substance usually looks very different to a life without it.
There are huge impacts that ripple out from the act of taking drugs or drinking. It’s not only the person who is addicted that is affected either.
Addiction requires specialist input. This is because in order for a person to be able to change their thoughts and behaviours they have to learn how to.
If it was easy to change, people would. Sadly, the claws of addiction sink into both the mental and physical sides of a person’s health. This alone makes it very hard to overcome.
It is, however, possible to overcome the struggle of addiction. A life of abstinence is viewed as the safest, effective, and healthiest option in terms of managing this issue.
In order to achieve that, a person needs support.
In Faversham, as well as throughout the UK, there are many clinics that treat people for addiction.
At a time when faced with the biggest challenge in life (to quit), you need support in understanding what the most appropriate options for you are. Rehab 4 Addiction specialises in matching people and their needs to treatment services.
We can secure you a placement at one of the top-rated clinics in the country as well as handle the admission process for you.
When contemplating admission to a rehab programme in Faversham, it might feel unsettling, others might find it totally overwhelming.
After spending a large part of your life focused on a substance, it can feel impossible to see a life without it.
Not only that, some people might feel as though they don’t want a life without the substance because life isn’t an easy experience.
Many people who enter treatment are struggling with issues from the past or present. It’s common for people to use substances in order to cope with incredibly distressing events and situations.
When this happens, dependence on a substance can seem the only part of life that makes sense.
What’s happening, though, is that the substances are affecting the way you think. Drugs and alcohol have a psychoactive effect which means they damage your body’s natural ability to self-regulate in terms of mood.
When this happens, it can become very hard to think in a positive light.
This is why professional input is essential. A team of addiction specialists can guide you back through treatments to a space where you’re able to view things in a healthier way.
If you’re in this kind of space, then all you need to do to mentally prepare right now is trust in the understanding and experience of a rehabilitation team.
These people have years working with people in your position and will provide the support you need. The Rehab 4 Addiction team can talk with you and liaise with the clinic for you up until your admission.
All you need to do is be open to receiving help.
If you’re feeling ready to enter a rehab programme, then as well as being ready to receive the support required, there are a few other areas you can think about.
People who have the smoothest recovery journeys typically exercise a few character traits that really stabilise the experience.
Character traits you’ll need while receiving recovery treatments:
This is one of the most important aspects in being able to recover. For many people who have been addicted, honesty is a trait that disappears. For true healing to begin, it’s time to practise being honest with yourself and others about how you use the substance, how you feel about it, what might have led you to this point, and what you want from the future.
Quitting drugs and alcohol is an incredibly difficult challenge. At times it will feel impossible. Relapse might occur. However, remaining determined and focused on what you want (not what you don’t want) is essential.
Every person at some point in their lives acts in a way they might later regret. It’s important to learn to forgive oneself and move on while heeding the lesson. There will also be moments that feel very uncomfortable during treatments, self-compassion allows this space and can hold you more comfortable in it while the professionals guide you.
When you contact the Rehab 4 Addiction team we will lead you through a conversation where we’re able to form a “picture” of what your life looks like. From this, we can ascertain what treatments and which clinics are going to suit your recovery goals most effectively.
