If you’ve arrived at this page, it’s likely that you are currently suffering from some kind of substance addiction, or you are concerned about the substance abuse of someone you know. Addiction is incredibly tough and can be a lonely and isolating experience for many.
The good news is that recovery is always possible, and we at Rehab 4 Addiction are here to get you the help that you need.
Despite the myriad of treatments available in the modern world, rehab has been continuously proven to be the most effective method of combatting addiction.
Rehab attendees are able to get access to detox, therapy, and education, all within the same facility, giving them the best possible chance of achieving recovery and making a lasting, positive change in their lives.
We at Rehab 4 Addiction specialise in referring those suffering from addiction to a private rehab facility that is right for them. We take into account your personal needs and circumstances and make an informed decision on where to refer you. We arrange placements all over the UK, including here in the Horley area.

The first and arguably most important, part of recovery is accepting that you have a problem. This can be very hard for some and can take a long time to come to terms with. Once you have done this, you are ready to reach out and begin the process of referral to rehab.
When preparing for rehab, you should do your best to mentally prepare yourself for the rigors of rehab, which will necessarily involve both physical and psychological discomfort.
You will need to be prepared for the potential physical side effects of alcohol withdrawal as you detox, and to face up to the consequences of your addiction, as well as addressing some of the psychological issues that may lie at the root of your addiction.
Although this process will be painful, it is necessary to heal, and to enter a new life in recovery. The sacrifices you make in rehab will pave the way for a new, fulfilling life, free from the torment of substance abuse. When you’re ready to face this journey, you can reach out by calling us on 0800 140 4690.
When you first call us, one of our friendly Rehab 4 Addiction advisors will talk you through the process of referral, as well as answering any questions that you might have about any aspects of it. Whenever you’re ready, we will begin our initial telephone assessment, in order to find out a bit more about you as a human being.
We might ask some questions about the specifics of your addiction, such as when it started, how impactful it has been on your life, and if there are any triggers or aggravating factors that can make it worse. The purpose of this exercise is to determine which of the rehab facilities on our books would be the most appropriate for you.
This is something that is not widely understood about rehab – there is always a huge emphasis on the specific circumstances of the individual, when determining the right facility for them. Everyone’s addiction is different, and every rehab will place an emphasis on different kinds of treatment. Our job is to get you referred to whichever rehab will give you the best chances of recovery.
As we mentioned above, a necessary part of your rehab treatment will be a fully supervised detox from drugs and alcohol. If you are suffering from alcohol addiction, detox will likely involve slowly reducing the amount of alcohol that you consume over a number of days, rather than stopping immediately.
Please note that you should never try to detox by yourself – this is highly dangerous, even fatal. It is vital that you have the supervision of medical professionals, which will be the case at any of the rehab centres you may be referred to.
Those professionals will also be there to help you through withdrawal symptoms safely. These symptoms are likely to present themselves as your alcohol consumption lowers.
You may experience headaches, muscle pains, profuse sweating, irritability, low mood, and other undesirable side effects. Rest assured that these symptoms will pass, and that staff will be on hand to help you through it. Nevertheless, this is something that you should be aware of ahead of time.
There is no ‘cure’ for addiction, so it is not healthy or realistic to think of recovery in those terms. The goal of rehab is to help you to stop using whatever substance you are addicted to, and to give you the tools and mental health education that you need to abstain, and to remain in recovery on an ongoing basis.
At rehab, you will fulfil your own personal treatment plan, which will be provided to you early on in your stay. The idea of this plan is to combine different therapeutic treatments and activities in order to maximise your chances of achieving sobriety and staying in recovery.
This could include sessions on stress management, cognitive behavioural therapy, and relapse prevention techniques, as well as activities such as yoga and meditation.
Towards the end of your time at the rehab, the emphasis will be on relapse prevention, and how best to maximise your chances of staying in recovery after you leave. Just like your treatment plan, this is a highly personalised exercise.
A trained and knowledgeable professional will help you draw up a detailed plan, which might involve avoiding certain people or situations, as well as more proactive steps like attending further group therapy sessions.
Once we have conducted your telephone assessment, we will discuss practicalities such as timeframe and costing, as well as any financing options you might have available to you.
Recovery from addiction is a truly challenging process, but it is always possible. Whenever you’re ready to commit to change, we’re here to help you in every way we can.
