If you or someone you know wishes to receive treatment for substance addiction, you are in the right place, and a drug and alcohol rehab in Haslingden may be your chance to reach your recovery goals.
We are Rehab 4 Addiction, a referral and advisory service that focuses on helping those battling addictions.
We have experience not only through our own members – who have experienced addiction themselves in the past – but also through years of helping clients struggling to cope with substance use.
We use this experience, and also our network of rehabilitation centres and outpatient clinics across the United Kingdom, to help us match our client’s needs with that of the perfect treatment facility.
It is obvious that no client or addiction is ever the same, so we ensure that each client is treated fairly and equally, whilst also being given differing and bespoke treatment plans that are proven to be most beneficial for them.
Not only this, but we also offer professional intervention services for loved ones of those in need of addiction treatment.

Addiction is characterised by the continual involvement of behaviour that is known to have adverse consequences, but one that provides an incentive to continue despite these.
Although your mind may think immediately of substances like drugs and alcohol, it is possible to be addicted to just about anything.
Sex, exercise, gambling, shopping, collecting; all are examples of the lesser-known additions that are still very capable of causing harm.
The common denominator throughout these addictions is always the ‘high’ that is achieved from taking part in the activity or using the substance.
This high can obviously differ from addiction to addiction; with shopping and collecting the high is the purchase of a new item, with gambling it is the feeling of winning, and with substances like drugs or alcohol this high is of course much more literal.
When we use drinks and drugs, chemicals from these substances release into our bloodstream and cause us to feel more relaxed and stress-free.
Attempting to continually reach this feeling is where recreational use of substances can transform into a more dangerous dependence, and soon a full-blown addiction.
An addiction starts to form when the individual using the substances begins to depend on them as a coping mechanism.
They can be used to cope with pretty much anything, ranging from simple, difficult emotions the individual doesn’t wish to feel, to dysfunctional families and abusive relationships.
This constant use of substances only becomes more and more dangerous with each use, as eventually the individual’s tolerance for the drugs or alcohol they use will have increased exponentially from their first use.
This tolerance will continue to increase each time they use, meaning that the individual will have to increase the dose of the substance to reach the same effect.
Over time this can result in permanent, long-term damage to the brain and the body.
It can be difficult to admit you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, especially if you are unaware of the many different signs and symptoms of addiction.
Below are a few of the main signs of a drug or alcohol addiction.
If you notice any of these in your life, we recommend reaching out to us as soon as possible on 0800 140 4690 – even if you believe you have your symptoms under control.
If you believe you may be in danger due to your addiction, or just wish to get help before it reaches dangerous levels, get in touch with us today. We can help you get started on the best possible path to your journey of a sober lifestyle.
