Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Framlingham

Knowing when it is time to find a rehab centre and officially begin your journey to long term recovery is never easy.

Many put off getting treatments for a number of reasons.

They may believe they are not struggling enough to warrant intervention yet.

They may be embarrassed or scared about checking themself into a rehab centre, or they simply don’t know how to find a centre that will work for them.

Or it may be a combination of all three. This is perfectly normal, and many people feel the same before they start their journey. Apprehension is simply the start of the process.

What’s important is that you are thinking about finding treatment, that you are here and willing to learn about the process and what it entails.

We can take this nice and slow, have everything explained for you so that when it comes to time to make a decision about a rehab centre, you will know what to do.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, our job is to help and support you through this so that you can find the perfect rehab centre for you in the Framlingham area.

Do you think you are not struggling enough?

While we are very lucky to have the NHS services in this country is has caused a toxic mentality to be adopted by many people.

Especially those who have experience dealing with the mental health services offered by the NHS.

As the NHS is so underfunded and stretched so thin, they have no choice but to prioritise those that need help as soon as possible. But, unfortunately, this has resulted in many people being left without treatments for months as they couldn’t prove they needed help.

With our services, you won’t be expected to prove you are struggling enough to warrant help. Instead, we will just give you the help.

Any person, no matter how severe their drug or alcohol dependency, maybe deserves access to rehabilitation services if they want them.

It doesn’t matter if you think you are not struggling enough. We will still find you a rehab centre so you can begin on your journey to long term recovery.

Waiting until your drug or alcohol dependency has gotten worse will only hurt you in the long run. So soon as you have recognised you have a problem, you should find treatment for it.

Are you scared or embarrassed?

It is never easy to admit that you are vulnerable. Still, in order to achieve long term recovery, it is unfortunately necessary.

The recovery process isn’t something you can do alone. Unfortunately, many are tempted to attempt to work through the various treatments without having to tell anyone they are struggling with a drug or alcohol dependency.

This just won’t work.

First of all, one of the key treatments is detox which is the process of allowing your body to naturally rid itself of all drugs and alcohol over a ten-day period. This should only ever be done in a medical facility, as during this time, you will experience withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms can be very dangerous if experienced alone. In some cases, they can result in vomiting that causes dehydration, hallucinations where you may hurt yourself or others, or even seizures.

Withdrawal symptoms should be taken very seriously as they can prove fatal under the right conditions. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call an ambulance. Medical professionals can administer medication to relieve the symptoms.

The withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Mood swings
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache

In rehab, the fully trained medical staff will be able to monitor you day and night and administer the same symptom-relieving medication.

There is no reason to be scared or embarrassed about seeking treatment at a rehab centre. It is no different from any other specialised medical facility.

Now more than ever, the social stigma surrounding seeking help for a drug or alcohol dependency is gone.

The rehab centre staff want to help you, not punish you for your substance abuse or shame you for it. They are medical professionals, and you are their patient.

You are safe both physically and mentally with them.

How to find a rehab centre suited for you.

As every person is unique, so are their needs when it comes to the recovery process.

No two people will need the exact same facilities.

For example, a large part of your stay at a rehab centre will be your therapy sessions. This is due to the fact that, in most cases, substance abuse is a symptom of a deeper mental health problem.

There are two main causes of substance abuse that results in it becoming a full-blown dependency. The first is trauma.

Trauma can be caused by a number of things such as:

  • Military service
  • Sexual assault
  • Domestic abuse
  • Homelessness
  • Illness
  • Witness to a traffic event
  • Death of a loved one
  • Natural disaster
  • Crime
  • Loss of a support system
  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Stalking

Trauma changes the way your brain is able to process stress. A person who has not experienced trauma is able to categorise stress and have different responses for different levels.

They are able to react to, for example, losing their phone and finding someone who broke into their home differently. As while they are both stressful events, one is much more of a danger than the other.

However, a person who has experienced trauma will very likely react to all stress as if it was an immediate danger.

Many people living with trauma will turn to substance abuse as a way to cope with everyday life. They want to numb the pain and ignore it rather than having to deal with it.

The other most common cause is undiagnosed mental illness. As many people attempt to self medicate themselves, ultimately only making their condition worse.

Most commonly, people are suffering with:

All rehab provides therapy, but you may require private sessions rather than group ones.

You may need a treatment that the average facility is able to provide.

But no, you may be wondering how do you find a rehab centre that can give you the best possible shot at achieving long term recovery?

Let us help you.

Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we take the time to get to know you through our free initial assessment. We then create a profile on you and your needs; this is used to match you with the perfect rehab centre in the Framlingham area.
