What Is Addiction?

Addiction is a chronic brain disorder that affects the lives of millions of people in the UK, directly and indirectly. When suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction, subjects are unable to function to complete daily tasks as their cravings and symptoms heighten as the addiction festers.

Those who suffer from addiction will see a rise in their tolerance levels, which leads to higher levels of consumption, more severe symptoms, and even death.

According to Kent.gov.uk, alcohol-related abuse leads to annual costs of around £70 million for the NHS in the county alone. With profound mental, physical, emotional, and economic effects, no one is truly immune to the damages of drug and alcohol addiction. Additionally, many are vulnerable to being exposed to addiction.

Social distancing measures have heightened social isolation, anxiety, and financial insecurity meaning many are prone to falling into drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction has your safe recovery at the forefront of our priorities. Through a referral service, we can identify the best and most reputable drug and alcohol rehab in Herne Bay for you.

The Importance of Professional Recovery

The importance of professional recovery must not be understated. While some may try to take recovery into their own hands, it is not an effective route and can make things worse. If you try to tackle addiction independently, you’ll be left without the resources or knowledge to successfully stay in recovery.

This will lead to relapses, more substance abuse, and even reluctance to undergo recovery again.

At a drug and alcohol rehab in Herne Bay, you’ll receive high-quality treatment and medical supervision. Studies show that inpatients are more likely to stay in recovery than outpatients, let alone independent recoverers.

As an inpatient at a drug and alcohol rehab in Herne Bay, you’ll be removed from an environment that has potential triggers for relapse. This is especially good for those who are suffering due to social or environmental factors.

There is also a misconception that the detoxification or withdrawal stage is the solution to most drug and alcohol addictions. This is where many, especially independent recoverers, fall short.

While the detox is incredibly important, you need to undergo a range of therapy to gain understanding and insight into your addiction. Once you’ve completed a variety of therapy, such as cognitive and dialectical, holistic therapy, support sessions, and more, you’ll be equipped to lead a sober life.

Furthermore, you’re far more likely to recover at a residential rehab clinic where you have 24/7 care and medical supervision. You’ll be able to direct your full attention towards recovery, before leaving and being fully equipped to lead a sober and healthy life.

Our Referral Service

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we will refer you to the appropriate drug and alcohol rehab in Herne Bay using our referral service. You will complete a free health assessment over the phone, where a consultant psychiatrist will note your addiction severity, physical and mental wellbeing, as well as other details.

Using these details, we will find a suitable provider for you, where your responsiveness to treatment will be maximised. Our providers are regulated by the Care Quality Commission in England.

A personalised programme will then be tailored to your specific needs. With a personalised programme, your chances of recovery will be far greater. This is because your details will be at the forefront of the programme, as opposed to a generic recovery programme.

Addiction has many variables, from substance, severity, genetics, and much more. Because of this, it is paramount that you undergo a recovery plan that is tailored to your unique needs.

The Rehab Process

The rehab process will last around 28 days, depending on the individual. It will begin with a 7 – 10 day medicated detox, where harmful substances will withdraw from your body. At a residential rehab, you’ll have 24/7 care, medical supervision, and medicine prescribed by an addiction physicist.

After you complete your medicated detox, you’ll undergo a range of therapy. Therapy will vary depending on the individual, however, you’re likely to take part in cognitive, dialectical, and holistic therapy.

Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy are communication-based, focusing on the management of negative thoughts and intense feelings. Holistic therapy focuses on the mind, body, and spirit, and is all-encompassing using a variety of methods, like yoga or mindfulness.

You’ll also attend support groups and motivational interviewing. Here, you can resonate with other recovers, and consolidate your personal objectives as you edge towards recovery.

After Rehab, you’ll be ready to lead your healthy and sober life outside of the drug and alcohol rehab in Herne Bay. While the time spent at your rehab clinic is around 28 days, the experience is invaluable.

You’ll have learned effective and lasting coping mechanisms, prevention techniques, and insight into substance abuse to prevent future relapses.
