Addiction destroys the mind, body, and soul. There is no part of your life that will be untouched by your addiction to drugs and alcohol; your relationships, health, and job will all suffer.
On the bright side, when you seek professional help, you will see a marked difference in your relationships, health, and career. Many people find that these areas flourish when drugs and alcohol are no longer a priority for them.
Unfortunately, it is common to be ashamed of your addiction and therefore keeps it hidden. However, this is not productive for recovery. It is important to remember that addiction is a disease of the mind that can affect anyone. Having said that, you have the power to put it in the past and choose to pursue recovery.
We believe the best way to access treatment is to contact the Rehab 4 Addiction helpline. We are known for arranging referrals within hours, days, or weeks. When you reach out to us, we are committed to you throughout your whole treatment journey; you can contact us before, during or after rehab for support.
There are many misconceptions about addiction and the related treatment options. We want to unpack these misconceptions to reduce any concerns you may have about seeking professional help.
Many people struggling with addiction are also living with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
This is because living with mental health conditions can be incredibly difficult, so many people turn to drugs and alcohol to numb their pain. Another reason addiction and mental health are so intertwined is that substance abuse can bring about mental health conditions owing to the fact that it alters chemicals in your brain.
For example, substances can reduce the level of serotonin in the brain, which can cause feelings of depression and anxiety.
Drug and alcohol rehabs in Fenland are well aware of the impact addiction has on mental health, so they are equipped to deal with mental health conditions. For example, CBT is often used to help patients with anxiety and depression to understand the link between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
You are likely to be in a bad place mentally before starting rehab, so it is vital that you prepare yourself for the intensity of a personalised treatment programme. Seeking help has to be your decision otherwise you will lack the motivation to pursue abstinence for the rest of your life. If you would like to know more about rehab before committing to it, many centres allow you to visit before enrolling.
When you complete treatment, your chosen rehab centre is aware that your mental health can plummet. This is because you return to the triggers of everyday life and you no longer have 24/7 care available to you. To keep your mental health in check, the rehab facility will offer comprehensive aftercare. This includes therapy sessions, support groups, helplines, and regular check-ups. In the year following rehab, you will never be left alone to struggle.
How Does Rehab 4 Addiction Select a Rehab Centre in Fenland For Me?
At Rehab 4 Addiction, the first step we take is to listen to you. During the free initial consultation, you can tell us any specific desires you have for treatment. For example, you may want to avoid certain therapies that have been unsuccessful for you in the past, you may want to attend a rehab centre with a gym, or you may want to stay at a centre in a specific part of the UK.
Even if you are unsure about what you want out of treatment, we can help. Our advisors have referred people from all backgrounds to rehab centres in Fenland and beyond, so they will know which type of centre would benefit you the most.
After our consultation, we will conduct plenty of research on rehab centres that suit your needs. Thankfully, there are a wealth of successful centres in and around Fenland, so we can find you a place within a very short time frame.
When you arrive at residential rehab in Fenland, you will undergo a physical and mental evaluation to ensure staff know exactly how to support you during your recovery.
Next, a detox is carried out. Toxins are removed from your body, which can cause withdrawal symptoms including tremors, headaches, and strong cravings. Staff will monitor you throughout the detox process to ensure you stay in good health.
The final and longest step of rehab is rehabilitation. Addiction specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists will help you to uncover why you became addicted to drugs and alcohol. Once you understand this, you can work on recovering from the trauma and adopting healthy coping mechanisms to cope with it.
You can expect to stay in rehab for around 28 days. The time frame varies according to how quickly you progress through treatment. However, we recommend preparing for a long stay to avoid disappointment. The shortest length of time for patients is usually 10 days, but this would only be sufficient for mild addictions.
Residential rehab is a huge commitment, but when successful, it is certainly worth it. If you rush through treatment, you may have to return to rehab at a later date. Thus, the most efficient method is to attend rehab for the full length of your programme and put your full effort into recovering.
When you seek treatment through Rehab 4 Addiction, you are guaranteed a quick referral. The earliest available start date will vary depending on availability in Fenland and the severity of your addiction.
However, we can assure you that our waiting times are nothing like those of the NHS. You can expect to receive treatment a few days after contacting us.
Before you decide to opt for drug and alcohol rehab in Fenland, consider whether you are willing to put addiction in your past. If you are determined to pursue abstinence and say no to temptation, rehab could be the best thing you ever do for yourself and those around you.
