Rehab 4 Addiction

Addiction is a harrowing mental illness that is known to wreak havoc on the lives of those who suffer from it, which is why the first step to receiving help can often be the hardest for many: Admitting that you have a problem.

Admitting to yourself that you’re struggling can be incredibly difficult for some people, it can bring up emotions of shame and embarrassment. But addiction is something that you shouldn’t be embarrassed about.

It is often caused by stress, trauma, depression and also an unhealthy environment. This is all completely normal, and also understandable. If you reach out to Rehab 4 Addiction for help, rest assured, you will not be judged.

We will do our utmost to understand how your addiction began, how to move forwards with your recovery and ways to prevent any relapses.

If you’re unsure whether you might need to ask for help, here are some signs that you might be suffering from an addiction:

  • You struggle to stay away from alcohol and/or drugs.
  • You avoid social events in which you won’t be able to drink or use drugs.
  • You stop caring about your physical health or even your appearance.
  • You begin to need a larger amount of drugs or alcohol in order to feel something.
  • You’re secretive and feel ashamed to tell others about your drugs and/or alcohol abuse.

If you relate to any of the signs mentioned above, you should contact us for help and support as soon as possible. Your health is our number one priority, and we want to help aid you on your recovery journey.

Friends and family members are also welcome to contact us on behalf of someone they are concerned about. Often times, many people struggle to open up to the ones they are closest to.

If you’re concerned about someone you care about and you worry that their fear of asking for help is preventing them from getting support, then you can also contact us, and we can work together to get your loved one the help they need. Here are some signs that a loved one might require aid:

  • They lack commitment to typical responsibilities e.g. they often miss work or social events.
  • Their behaviour appears irrational and at times erratic.
  • You recognise that they have been consuming more alcohol than usual / their clothes often smell of alcohol.
  • Lack of personal care/ changes in complexion (often paler than usual and appearing tired).
  • Changes in friendship groups.
  • Unexplained mood changes.

If someone close to you seems to have any of these symptoms, then give us a call, we will discuss the signs you noticed and exactly what it is you believe they might be addicted to.

We will then call up a rehabilitation centre in Hedge End and work together with both you and the facility to question the best way forward. Sometimes, this will mean an intervention. If that is the case, rest assured it will be handled delicately, and with professional help.

Why Rehab 4 Addiction Over Free Help?

This is a question a lot of people seem to debate about when considering who to ask for support. Whilst the NHS is definitely a very appealing option and has helped millions across the UK for a plethora of reasons, when it comes to addiction, many prefer to go the private route.

This is due to a number of reasons, for some, it’s that, although the help is free, its also very simplistic, and not as in-depth as they might need.

Because the NHS caters to such a large audience of people, and addiction can be a very complicated and fragile health issue to manoeuvre, some people prefer to go down a route wherein which they’re completely catered to.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we want to ensure that you receive the best help possible, this means that we will work with you on giving you treatment that’s entirely bespoke to you. We’ll work through your trauma, we’ll help you through the withdrawals, and we’ll be on hand 24/7 to help support you.

Our wait times are also much shorter than the NHS. We understand that recovery from addiction can be time sensitive, and the assistance required for healing often needs to happen as soon as possible for health and social reasons. For this purpose, after your initial call assessment, we will do our best to ensure that you are treated as soon as possible.

What Are the Different Types of Treatment Available to You?

Rehab 4 Addiction works with many facilities in Hedge End that offers two different types of treatment. The first is detox treatment, this is a stage that everyone must go through first in order to clean any amount of drugs and or alcohol out of your system.

Many people find this to be the hardest part of their treatment, so for this reason you will have to stay within the facility for this period, which typically lasts for 7-10 days.

During this time, you will receive around the clock 24/7 care as well as counselling. If needed, you will also be given medication to help with the withdrawal symptoms, and to make this phase easier for you.

The next step will be rehabilitation. Not everyone needs to do this, but those who do will stay at the facility for a much longer amount of time.

Rehabilitation last for 4-12 weeks, during this time you will be offered therapy focusing on CBT and DBT as well as taking part in holistic treatment. This is all to help get through difficult emotions that may have caused the addiction, and to help you push through into the future.

The final step is Aftercare. This is provided both for people who only participated in detox treatment, and for people who stayed on for rehabilitation. You will be given a helpline that you can call whenever you feel you need additional support as well as being placed into support groups centred around addiction and helping you feel better.
