When it comes to dealing with addiction, it is all too easy to lose perspective on ourselves and our reality. You may have already accepted that you need help with your addiction, but perhaps you think that you’re not yet at the stage where you need to enter a rehab facility.
Sadly, more often than not, putting off treatment only makes it more difficult to recover in the long run.
The first step of recovery is to acknowledge our addictions and reach out for help. We recognise that this is much easier said than done, but when you are ready, we at Rehab 4 Addiction are ready to get you the help that you need.
We act as a referral service to get you access to detox, counselling, therapies, and in many cases, a full residential rehab programme. All of these services are available within the Hornchurch area.
Once you have reached out to one of our advisors, they will use their expertise to assess your needs further and plan the right course of action for you. If residential rehab is appropriate for you, we can help you with preparation, guidance, and education around what to expect from your experience.
If you are ready to acknowledge your addiction and commit to positive change, call us today on 0800 140 4690 to speak to a trained advisor and start the referral process.
It may be that you are willing and ready to get the help that you need, but are still wary of going through the physical process of withdrawing from alcohol or drug use. This kind of aprehension is completely understandable.
While this period of withdrawal can be deeply unpleasant, a detox or rehab facility is absolutely the best place to do it.
If your life has deteriorated due to drug and alcohol use and has now become unmanageable, it would likely be advised that you detox from the substance to which you are addicted, before beginning the various therapies that make up the rest of the recovery process.
We can refer you to a number of different detox facilities, a lot of which are based within residential rehab facilities. It is vital that you detox with proper medical supervision, especially in the case of alcohol withdrawal, which can be fatal if not managed properly.
Your treatment plan will be personalised to you. After all, everyone’s addictions are different and have different underlying issues and individual triggers associated with them.
Upon arrival in your rehab facility, you will work with the professionals there to put together a treatment plan for your recovery. This may involve a number of different therapies – everything from cognitive behavioural therapy, to group therapy and individual counselling.
There may also be activities such as mindfulness meditation and yoga involved in the process. Whatever your course of action is, it is important that you approach each new therapy with an open mind and a commitment to change for the better.
There are many drug and alcohol treatment centres all over the UK, and it may be that you are in two minds whether you’d like to stay close to home, or feel that moving further afield might provide some extra respite for you.
This is something else that will be discussed during your assessment, but if you’d prefer to check in to a rehab facility closer to home, then rest assured – there are many options available in the Hornchurch area and around the London region.
Being nearer to home also opens the possibility of holding family-led therapy sessions, which is another type of therapy that your rehab facility may offer. Of course, this will only be suggested by your counsellor if it is appropriate for you, and would be beneficial to your recovery.
As each individual’s treatment plan will be different, so too will the time that they are encouraged to stay in their rehab facility. For a majority of users, a timeframe of 28 days is appropriate.
This is enough time to complete detox, set out a therapy plan, and plan for life after rehab and your ongoing recovery. However, it could be that you require more or less time than 28 days, depending on your needs.
Either way, you can be assured that throughout your various consultations with the rehab facility, and us as a referral service, there will be complete transparency as to how long you will be in rehab, and what the cost will be.
This will vary from one facility to another, and there may be different options when it comes to financing your rehab stay. Call us today on 0800 140 4690 to speak to a Rehab 4 Addiction advisor and explore your options.
Although rehab is perhaps the most intensive stage of the recovery process, the truth is the staying in recovery is a lifelong challenge, and so aftercare is highly important.
Moving back into ‘the real world’ from the safe haven of rehab can be a difficult transition, and it can bring back a whole host of different triggers, vulnerabilities, and challenges, old and new.
It is for this reason that one of the final parts of rehab is putting together a relapse prevention plan, based upon your own issues and challenges. With the help of a trained professional, you will use your new knowledge, skills, and coping mechanisms to reduce the chance of relapse to a minimum.
You will also be referred to ongoing support groups, such as 12-step support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. It is important to remember that recovery is an accumulative effort –there lots of different ways in which we can help ourselves to stay healthy and sober.
If you are ready to acknowledge your addiction and take the first steps into recovery, please call us today on 0800 140 4690 to speak confidentially with one of our trained advisors.
