Rehab 4 Addiction

Are you struggling to cope with crippling addictions? Are you looking to learn more about recovery processes? Are you looking for a space where you can safely heal without judgement?

If you’re on this page, looking for alcohol rehab in Hayes or rehab for any other kind of addiction, you’ll be glad to know that you’ve actually already passed one of the most important stages of this process: admitting that you need help.

You might have tried and failed to recover alone: please know that this is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s a huge struggle that can take a monumental effort and one person alone most likely won’t have that strength.

Addiction works on two levels: in your body and in your brain, with the psychological side being much stronger. To get through, you’ll need to fully confront both sides.

You might be able to physically recover somewhat (although this isn’t advisable to attempt alone for reasons we’ll mention below), but psychologically it’s much harder. That’s where the support provided by Rehab 4 Addiction comes in.

While we’re on the subject, we should also mention here (as we said we would) that attempting to recover independently on either level can become incredibly dangerous, as withdrawal symptoms can get extreme to the point of being incredibly harmful or even deadly if you’re detoxing alone.

The path to recovery

As you move away from addictive substances, your body and mind will react in different ways, with cravings often becoming stronger and withdrawal symptoms becoming more extreme. With Rehab 4 Addiction, those symptoms will be controlled via expert guidance and alternative treatment.

We also craft highly personalised plans for everyone we help, so we can guarantee that your specific needs will be met. Just contact us and we’ll be able to talk it through with you in more detail.

It may seem like a long and hard journey – but with the right support structures around you, you can make it through!

How to mentally prepare for rehab

One of the best ways you can mentally prepare for rehab is by researching everything you might need to know. Knowing the process fully, knowing the kinds of treatments you may be recommended, will make the whole thing a much easier experience.

Using this article specifically as an example, it’ll be a good idea to take every kind of treatment and stage that we mention here and look into it all in further detail, to fully understand what you’re going into and the ways it will eventually benefit you.

It’s also important that you are in a headspace where you are fully dedicated to healing and where you’re completely willing to accept help.

Finally, you need to truly think hard about your motivation: why do you want/need treatment in the first place? If you choose to get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction, our experts would also be happy to go over any questions you have, so you can feel even more prepared.

Dealing with multiple issues

Another element that could make your recovery process even more complex: dealing with mental health issues on top of addiction. It’s very common for people with addiction issues to also have mental health issues as a root cause, so it’s important to confront those problems too.

Therefore, it’s important to seek out specialised support for any underlying causes of addiction, as well as support for the addiction itself. As for what specific mental health treatments are available, there’s more information on that below…

Stages of treatment

Speaking of dealing with multiple stages, as we previously mentioned, there are two levels to any kind of addiction treatment: treatment of the body and treatment of the mind.

Holistic therapy actually covers both by definition and will be offered to you if it fits your specific needs – but there are also many other stages with many other options involved.

On a physical level, a detox like we mentioned earlier is usually the best place to start. Getting the substances that are harming you out of your body is a very important first step, putting you on the right path to full time recovery.

Rehab 4 Addiction also provides plenty of mental health support on various levels. For example, during a typical course of treatment various kinds of therapy will be offered to you.

There’s the aforementioned holistic therapy, but there’s also talking therapy (where you simply talk to a therapist who specialises in the issues you need help for), counselling (which is more generalised) as well as support groups such as alcoholics anonymous.
