If you’re struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, it’s common to live in denial about your illness or consider that it’s too mild for intervention.
Unfortunately, this is exactly the reason for prolonged addiction issues, so it’s important that you’re brutally honest with yourself when it comes to your behaviours surrounding drug and alcohol consumption.
Arriving at this page shows hope that you are acknowledging, even if just to yourself, that there may be a problem present. The fact is, if you’re concerned, then there is most probably a very good reason for that.
However, we know it can be overwhelming to come to terms with an addiction, so we’re here to help you through it.
Here, at Rehab 4 Addiction, we have first-hand experience of drug and alcohol addiction, with most of the team being in recovery themselves. We can therefore advise you about your drug or alcohol consumption and whether you are in the midst of, or heading towards an addiction.
When you’re ready to recover, we can also help you to source excellent drug and alcohol rehab in Heckington, from one of our trusted partnership networks of addiction recovery treatment centres.
Get in touch with us today at Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, or request a callback through our contact form.
All calls are free and completely confidential. If you’re not quite ready to call, read on for our answers to some frequently asked questions on the subject of addiction recovery.
It can be tough to determine whether you are suffering from an addiction problem, and equally tough to acknowledge the reality if you are.
For many, addiction stems from coping with other issues in their life, so the concept of going through the recovery process is as scary as the potential damage caused by prolonged substance abuse.
Although it may seem impossible, there are other ways to deal with your issues, and through addiction recovery, you won’t just find sobriety, but the tools you need to resolve them.
The first step, however, is admitting that you are struggling and that you need help. There is no shame in addiction, this is a disease, which, like all other diseases, requires medical intervention.
We are happy to help you to explore your drug and alcohol consumption without judgement, to help you come to the right conclusion about whether or not addiction is present.
Once you feel certain about your addiction status and have taken the decision to attempt recovery, we will be able to help you find the right type of treatment, wherever you would like to attend.
Whether that’s in your hometown of Heckington, in the wider Lincolnshire area or even further afield, our network of rehabilitation partners will be able to help you.
We’ll need to take you through a short assessment, which will look at the type of substances used, the quantity and the frequency of use and any pre-existing health conditions.
We will then be able to make recommendations about the type of treatment that will be most beneficial to you and, taking into account your budget and preference, find a treatment centre that suits you.
In Heckington, both outpatient and residential rehab facilities can be found, so you won’t need to travel far to meet your needs unless you want to. Some people prefer the anonymity and isolation of recovering away from their usual surroundings.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that, although some people can benefit from outpatient rehab treatments, it’s highly likely that we will recommend residential rehab if you have an established drug or alcohol addiction.
Whichever option you take, detox will form an essential part of your recovery. This process will not only prove to you that sobriety is an option, but it will allow you to increase focus on the remainder of your recovery journey.
Those attending residential rehab will undertake medically assisted detox soon after their admission to the programme.
This will allow you to be monitored for your safety day and night by trained medical professionals, who will be able to minimise the impact of your withdrawal symptoms, through the use of prescribed medicines, where possible.
Once this is completed, you will be supported throughout the investigation of the root cause of your condition, what your triggering factors are, and how you can overcome them.
A range of modern psychotherapy techniques, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational therapy, group therapy and one to one addiction counselling will provide you with the coping mechanisms that you need to live a sober life well into the future.
Another benefit of opting for residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment programmes are the extensive aftercare services offered. All of our partner facilities offer ongoing treatments for at least a year beyond your discharge.
You will also be encouraged to attend local drug and alcohol abstinence groups in the Heckington area.
Addiction is incurable, but there are strong success rates associated with residential rehab, which offers the best chance of recovery for those with moderate to severe drug and alcohol addictions.
With ongoing personal efforts and motivation, it’s perfectly possible to maintain your sobriety post-rehab, indefinitely.
One of the major issues surrounding addiction recovery is obtaining professional rehab services within a reasonable timescale.
Unfortunately community-based treatments, such as those offered by the NHS, often have very long waiting lists, which results in many people losing the desire and motivation to recover.
Although you may feel that your addiction is under control, one day is all it takes for that control to slip. The sooner an addiction is dealt with, the higher the chance of a straightforward recovery, so even if you think it’s premature, it’s important not to let your addiction fester and grow.
We don’t need a GP referral, you can self refer via Rehab 4 Addiction, so long as you are committed to your recovery. Start your journey today, in Heckington, or wherever you feel comfortable doing so.
