Admitting to yourself you may be an ‘addict’ is undoubtedly painful. However, overcoming denial is an essential first step that’s needed for long-term recovery. In fact, many people are simply unable to stop using drugs or alcohol because they are unable to accept that they have a problem in the first place.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, our mission is two-fold. Firstly, we offer a free telephone assessment. This assessment allows us to determine the severity of your addiction. Our advisors are trained in helping you overcome any feelings of denial. Many of our advisors are themselves in recovery. Secondly, we aim to assist you in selecting the most suitable addiction treatment provider in Gloucester.
Gloucester and the wider South West region is saturated with residential and outpatient treatment providers, so the risk of choosing a poorly suited treatment provider is very real indeed. To ensure you select the most suitable addiction treatment provider for your needs contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.
Many people in Gloucester who are battling with drug or alcohol addiction, the most suitable course of action is to attend an inpatient rehab clinic. Gloucester has a good mix of private and charity run rehab clinics. The key benefit of attending a private clinic is the speed in which your admission will take place. Applying for publicly funded drug or alcohol rehab in Gloucester takes time, and unfortunately, not everybody will be successful in receiving state-funding.
In contrast, private rehab clinics allow you to access their services without a prolonged application process. You may access the services of a private rehab clinic within hours rather than months. For this reason, many people do elect to self-fund their own treatment. When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we can recommend private rehab treatments that are right for your needs and affordable.
Many of the clinics we recommend in Gloucester offer four-week long rehab programmes. Many of these rehabs argue that it’s a waste of time to consider going to rehab for a week or two because therapy sessions are not able to treat the underlying mental causes of addiction over such a brief period.
Before you begin therapy sessions, you will undergo a medically assisted detox programme. If you are addicted to alcohol or opiates, a medically assisted detox is essential. Each year, thousands of people die unnecessarily because they undergo a detox without medical assistance. For instance, an alcohol detox brings with a range of deathly withdrawal symptoms.
These symptoms include a seizure, cardiac arrest, and a stroke. Fortunately, when you undergo a detox from the safety of an alcohol or drug rehab centre, you will be given powerful medications that all but avoid the risk of you suffering from deadly withdrawal symptoms.
Before you detox begins, you will undertake a full psychiatric assessment. The psychiatrist will assess your physical and mental health. Following this assessment, a fully personalised detox and rehab programme are then compiled. This plan will then be passed on to your assigned key worker for implementation over the course of the next 3-4 weeks.
Both during and after your detox, you will also engage in therapy sessions. These therapy sessions allow you to address the underlying mental causes of addiction. These causes may be due to co-occurring mental health issues such as anxiety or depression. Many people who experience addiction may also have suffered a traumatic experience in the past. Therapy sessions aim to help you manage and alleviate negative emotions in healthy ways that do not involve substance misuse.
