Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, our goal is to organise and facilitate residential rehab placements for those who are in need of addiction treatment.
Since we formed back in 2012, we have offered this service for a wide variety of private rehab facilities all across the country, including here in the Hebburn area.
If you are ready to face addiction, please call us on 0800 140 4690 to speak to one of our team, who will be able to begin your assessment, and when you are happy to proceed, can get you a referral to an appropriate rehab centre as soon as possible.
As experts in recovery, there are a great number of different ways in which we can help you on your recovery journey. We can provide advice on practical things like childcare and financing options.
However, the main value we provide is that, after conducting your assessment, we are able to make an informed recommendation as to which rehab would be the best choice for you.
There are several factors at play in this decision, including affordability, ease of access, age, gender, and your current living situation, as well as the severity of your substance abuse problem.
There is a lot to consider, which is why you should leave this complex decision-making process to us.
The telephone call will not take too long, and it could turn out to be the most valuable investment of time you ever spend.
Once we have made a referral recommendation, please be aware that you will not be ‘tied in’ or otherwise committed to any course of action before you have confirmed that you are happy to proceed.
We can answer any questions you like, and we treat your information with the utmost confidence, as we know how personal and potentially sensitive these matters can be.
All we want to do is get you the best standard of care, as quickly as possible.
At rehab, you will tackle addiction by engaging in a number of talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling, and psychotherapy.
There is also an emphasis on the small community with whom you are recovering, so group therapy sessions will almost definitely be a part of your treatment schedule.
These sessions might be difficult to adjust to at first, but they can be extremely valuable, due to the combination of unburdening your own problems with sympathetic others, as well as gaining new perspectives from the others in the group.
Before this, you will need to go through a detox programme, where you will cleanse your body of any remaining toxins and illicit substances.
For those who have an alcohol dependency, this will involve steadily decreasing alcohol consumption over a number of days, before coming to a total stop.
This is because it is not safe to just go ‘cold turkey’ and stop alcohol intake straight away. On this subject, please do not attempt to carry out your own detox before you arrive at the centre – this is very dangerous and is not recommended for anyone to do.
The detox team will take care of you.
Other activities you may take part in during your stay at rehab may include holistic exercises such as yoga, meditation, reiki healing, and other forms of gentle exercise.
These are complementary to your main treatments and will vary depending on which centre you are referred to. Another important part of the rehab process is planning for success once you leave the facility.
This will involve putting together a carefully thought-out relapse prevention plan, with the help of one of the on-site professionals.
When you leave rehab, you will have a much better understanding of your addiction, and of yourself as a whole. Following the relapse prevention plan will stand you in good stead for staying in recovery for the long term.
During our phone consultations, we find that quite a lot of people ask whether they can attend rehab as an outpatient.
There are many reasons that they might want to do this – perhaps they are apprehensive about moving into a residential facility, or they might be trying to keep costs down by eliminating the expenditure of accommodation and food.
This is understandable, but you should be aware ahead of time that attending rehab as an outpatient is something that is only recommended for a small minority of our service users.
This is because, if a person’s home life is toxic and/or chaotic, it could very well interfere with the recovery process.
Your recovery is the most important thing, and if there is anything at home that has the potential to jeopardise that goal, it is not advisable to attend as an outpatient.
For example, a person might have an abusive partner or cohabitant, or they may be in a running dispute with a neighbour. These are sources of tangible stress, that would be likely to interfere with a healthy recovery process.
What’s more, being an inpatient at rehab eliminates any practical complications that might get in the way, such as being late for a session due to heavy traffic or public transport links.
Punctuality and attendance are highly valued in rehab, and missing sessions would not be good for anyone.
If you have any more questions or concerns about the rehab referral process, please call us on 0800 140 4690, where one of our advisors will be happy to discuss any issues at length.
Calling us does not tie you into a decision.
The information we give you is free, and you are not obliged to proceed with referral unless you are ready to do so.
Things can seem very bleak in addiction, but with the right help, a bright, healthy future is entirely possible.
