Rehab 4 Addiction

One form of treatment available in Greenwich is residential treatment. When you tackle your detoxification and rehabilitation, it’s only natural to require care and support from professionals who understand the issues you are going through.

Residential treatment means you are taken away from your home and thus removed from distractions that would otherwise pose risks to your early recovery.

When you undertake residential treatment, you will be surrounded by professionals who are on hand to offer you all the care and support you could possibly require.

During your time at a residential rehab clinic, you will begin to build up an important social network of other like-minded people who have been affected by addiction to drugs or alcohol. You will benefit from these relationships for many years to come.

In particular, many of these people will be available to you should you face challenges in your life that threaten your recovery. Surrounding yourself with others in recovery will also mean you do not feel the need to mix with people who do not embrace your recovery.

The early stages of entering recovery

Many of you may assume that ‘getting into recovery’ begins when you stop drinking alcohol or using drugs. This is incorrect. Getting into recovery begins before you enter a period of abstinence.

Recovery is actually a psychotic state where you admit you are powerless when it comes to controlling your drink and drug use.

You must overcome denial and admit that the only way you can prosper and survive is to enter recovery. This psychological shift in thinking forms the basis of your long-term recovery both today and well into the future.

Overcoming denial also includes overcoming any trepidation you may hold about going to rehab in Greenwich. Undoubtedly, going to rehab is a major decision and one you should not take lightly.
