If you or someone you know is stuck in the misery of addiction, the best thing to do is enrol at a dedicated rehab facility. Even if you are ready to take this step, it can be difficult to know where to start.
There are thousands of rehab facilities across the UK, each of which has its own ways of operating. To someone who is not an expert, these endless options can be difficult to make sense of.
That’s where we at rehab 4 addiction come in. We are a specialist service, dedicated to rehab and addiction recovery.
We provide referrals to the best private rehab facilities in the country and help to make the process of referral as quick and seamless as possible.
If you’re ready to face your addiction, you can call us on 0800 140 4690 to begin the process of referral.
We have connections with rehab centres all over the UK, and can use those contacts to get you into an appropriate facility as soon as feasibly possible.
Within a matter of days, you can be in rehab, getting the professional help that you need to conquer your addiction. It starts with a phone call to Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, where you can speak to one of our trained professional advisors.
Whenever you are ready to proceed, they can start your initial telephone consultation.
The purpose of this consultation is to find out as much as we can about you, and how addiction has impacted your life. Based on this information, we will be able to make a sound recommendation as to which of the rehab facilities in your area would be the right fit for you.
All of these facilities differ slightly in terms of how they approach treatment – this is why the preliminary consultation is necessary.
We understand that is a big step talking about this kind of personal matter to a stranger on the phone, but please be assured that we are here to help, and treat all of your information with strict confidentially.
You might be wondering what you need to do before arriving at rehab. Everyday life can be difficult to manage, especially when living in addiction.
You may be concerned about the feasibility of effectively putting your life on hold, and delegating your responsibilities while you are in rehab getting treatment. This might be your kids, your job, or any other responsibilities that you have.
We can provide advice on all of this, as well as other practicalities, such as financing options and arranging temporary care for your dependents. These are things that we can discuss at length once you call us.
Aside from these practical things, the most important thing you can do is try your best to prepare mentally. You should brace yourself for the fact that rehab will not be easy, either mentally or physically.
You will need to push through the pain barrier of detox and therapy in order to get better. Still, if you trust and commit to the process, rehab could improve your life immeasurably.
Finally, please do not attempt to detox by yourself before getting to rehab – it is extremely dangerous to do this, especially if you are in alcohol addiction. Detox is one of the first parts of treatment at rehab and is managed carefully by professionals.
As we mentioned above, going to residential rehab is a big commitment in terms of time as well as money. Because of this, a lot of people who contact us ask about the possibility of attending rehab as an outpatient.
This may be possible, but will only be recommended in a minority of cases. Attending rehab as an inpatient makes treatment a lot more straightforward, and means that there are fewer things that could potentially go wrong.
For example, since you will be living and sleeping at the centre, you won’t need to worry about travel or being late for sessions.
Attending as an outpatient can mean that you are better placed to keep on top of your usual commitments, such as childcare. However, if your home life is currently unstable, it is very unlikely that you will be able to attend as an outpatient.
This is one of the advantages of residential rehab – you can get your treatment in a safe, secure environment, without the distractions and stress involved in chaotic home life. This is something that we can discuss as part of your consultation.
You will have a personalised treatment plan at rehab, which will be drawn up once you arrive. The first port of call will be a full medical detox so that you can go through treatment sober and well.
From there, you will embark on an intensive treatment plan which will include some combination of counselling, group therapy sessions, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), addiction awareness, and stress management. You may also be encouraged to take part in other holistic activities, such as yoga, reiki, meditation, and mindfulness practice.
Although these different treatments have a lot of variety in terms of what is involved, the end goal is the same – to give you a better understanding of addiction, and to maximise your chances of staying in recovery.
A big part of treatment is planning for ongoing recovery once you leave.
Towards the end of your stay, you will put together a detailed plan for relapse prevention, which will set out areas to stay away from, as well as areas of positive focus for your future life in recovery.
