Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Halstead

The research stage of addiction recovery can be as intimidating as any other. There’s a lot of information to absorb and all of it may seem overwhelming, especially if you’re going through all of this for the first time.

If you have any concerns about the rehab process, you’ve come to the right place! At Rehab 4 Addiction, we aim to provide a welcoming, relaxed environment, where you can access all the physical and emotional support you need.

More specifically, we can also develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to you. We can help you find drug and alcohol rehab in Halstead that will (hopefully) eventually lead you to long term recovery and management of your addiction.

What is the intention of drug and alcohol rehab in Halstead?

The intention of drug and alcohol rehab in Halstead isn’t to fully get rid of your addiction. Unfortunately, that’s an unrealistic goal.

Instead, we’ll try to help you manage it, to the point where you can get your life back.

One of the ways this is done is via the teaching of life skills. Residential rehab centres often offer workshops on subjects like health, nutrition and (of course) addiction.

These will equip you for a new drug and alcohol-free life.

Many mental health treatments will also teach you coping mechanisms alongside these life skills. Mental health issues can be a huge driver of addiction, especially if they’re not dealt with.

Like addiction, they can also get worse over time, so it’s important that they’re treated as soon as possible.

Will recovery be easy?

The simple answer to that is no. Addiction recovery is a lifelong journey and it’s not easy for the most part. It might, however, be a smoother process if your addiction is less severe.

In addition, once you’re over the initial hurdles of withdrawal, things should become a lot easier.

This is why a detox is nearly always the first stage of addiction recovery: because breaking those physical ties is one of the hardest parts of the process. At the start of your journey, over a period of about 3 weeks, your intake of the substance you’re addicted to will be slowly reduced.

This will be done in a fully supported environment, in a way that takes withdrawal symptoms into account. At a certain point in this process

As a final point on this subject, if you’re struggling at any point, during professional rehab, you’ll also have a whole team of people behind you, willing to support you every step of the way.

What is the process for accessing drug and alcohol rehab in Halstead?

All you need to do to get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction is call, or drop a message on our website. Then, after an initial chat with you, we’ll complete a formal assessment to pin down the specifics of your situation.

More specifically, we need to establish what exactly you’re addicted to, how long you’ve been addicted to it, the level of support you have and how severe your addiction is overall.

As addiction can vary so much from substance to substance and from person to person, addiction treatment always needs to be individualised in this way.

After this part of the process is over, as we said before, we can then move forward with a treatment plan.

Before you get started on any actual treatment, we’ll also ask you to complete a second mental and physical assessment. Going through all of these processes might seem extreme or over the top, but it’s very important to your recovery for us to have all the information we need.

How to help a loved one, colleague or employee through addiction

Addiction isn’t just hard on those suffering from it. It can often have devastating impacts on family and friends too.

If you think a loved one could be suffering from addiction, one of the best things you can do is simply try to speak to them about it.

This won’t be easy. You’ll likely be met with anger and denial at first. But it’s important to acknowledge these issues, rather than sweeping them under the rug, where they could get much worse.

Even if you only know the person through work, it’s natural to want to help them. If you’re in a higher position in your company, you could look at the policies you have in place.

Would they help or hurt someone suffering from addiction? Even if you’re not in a position to change things on a wider level, you still can and should offer the person suffering from the addiction emotional support.

You could also still try to create a work environment that they would feel comfortable with – at a lower level, it’ll probably be a simple case of asking what they need.
