Although recovery is of course possible, addiction is a hard disorder to manage. It works on multiple levels, affecting you physically and mentally.
Physical treatments like detoxes and mental health ones like therapy and counselling are both needed during rehab for this reason.
But one of the hardest stages is admitting you need help in the first place. By looking at this page, you’ve already made a good start. If you get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll be able to help you with the next steps.
Many people don’t speak out about their addiction issues due to shame, fear and a whole host of other emotions.
But ignoring it is one of the worst things you could do. Addiction nearly always becomes worse with time, meaning that in the long run, you’ll have worse impacts on both your life and your health.
It also becomes harder to treat at these higher levels. Rehab aims is to teach you how to manage your addiction – the bigger the addiction is, the harder that is to achieve.
That doesn’t mean that recovery is impossible if your issues are already that bad. But it will probably be a harder road, that will require more intensive treatment.
It’s also important that you’re not too hard on yourself. Addiction isn’t anything to be ashamed of and it’s even been shown to change how your brain works. This isn’t your fault, and you deserve to get better.
Look for support from friends and family – and remember that Rehab 4 Addiction can offer you emotional support too if you need it.
Reaching out might seem daunting and difficult, but on a practical level, it’s actually very easy. All you need to do is call us or drop a message on our website and we can set you on a path to recovery.
It can also be really hard to see someone you care about (or even someone you know on a less personal level) suffer from addiction. We can help you too, in two ways.
First of all, our helpline is open for advice on anything related to addiction. You don’t necessarily need to be suffering from addiction to access it.
If you don’t know how to deal with the situation that you think someone you know could be in, our experienced professionals will be on hand to guide you.
Second of all, we can also help to arrange an intervention. It might seem like a drastic measure, but sometimes it is the best, or even the only way, to get through to someone who needs help.
Outside of the support we offer, the best thing you can do for the person you’re thinking of is probably to just talk to them. Even if they won’t listen, you’ll at least have put the issue out in the open.
That will always be a better option than ignoring it in the hope that it will go away.
If you’re dealing with addiction in a work environment, ensuring that your workspace would be comfortable for someone suffering from addiction is also important. If you’re at a higher level, you could even look into company policies and make changes if necessary.
Addiction is a lifelong battle. Once you’ve made it through the initial stages of drug and alcohol rehab in Hemsworth, aftercare will also likely be offered to you.
This is just as important as any other stage of the process. This is where you’ll transition from your main treatment into your new (hopefully clean/sober) life.
After all the work you’ll have put in, this is the final step towards that goal.
It mostly involves continued access to mental health treatments. Alongside this, you’ll receive lifestyle recommendations and accountability sessions, which will help you remain responsible for your recovery.
Finally, aftercare will likely involve continued access to any support groups you joined during rehab. And you can of course continue to attend such sessions for as long as you need, outside of any treatment plans.
These can be a huge source of emotional support for a lot of people. They put you in touch with a network of people with similar experiences.
This can help you to feel less alone and will allow you to share your story, with people who truly understand.
Beyond advice and emotional support, there are of course other ways that Rehab 4 Addiction can help you. After an initial conversation and assessment, we can also create a treatment plan specifically designed to suit you.
After we’ve figured out what your situation is and have created a plan accordingly, we’ll then be able to send you to the appropriate treatments. If inpatient treatment turns out to be something that would suit you, we also have residential centres across the country.
As every case of addiction is different, it’s important that treatment is individualised in this way.
As we said earlier, the next stage for drug and alcohol rehab in Hemsworth after reading this page should be to get in touch with an organisation like Rehab 4 Addiction.
But even before that, it’s important that you do your own research. That way, you can have a much better view of the process going into it. Look into every treatment you can and find out what works best for your specific addiction.
On a similar note, you should look at the potential withdrawal symptoms of your specific addiction too. As most treatment plans involve some kind of detox you’re unlikely to experience all of them.
But it’s important to be aware of what they are.
Finally, if you’re considering residential treatment, you should also look up every centre you’re considering and find out as much as you can.
Look at the location, look at the treatments they offer (this is also where your own earlier research could come in handy), look at what their specific rules are.
Fear of the unknown is a big reason why a lot of people don’t get the help they need. By learning everything you can before you even look into treatment, you’ll be able to combat that early on.
