In countless different academic studies, it has been shown that the most effective method of treating addiction is attending rehab.
There are many different reasons why this is the case, but mostly it is to do with the complete and thorough nature of the care a person can receive at a dedicated rehab facility, which is combined into one convenient package.
It includes detox, counselling, therapy, addiction education, and other complementary activities, all under the same roof.
In the space of a month, a person can from entering rehab in full-blown addiction to leaving in recovery, with a much better understanding of addiction, and how to deal with cravings and other psychological challenges going forward.
Rehab will not be easy and is a challenging process for anyone. As well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal through detox, there is the psychological difficulty of examining and confronting your issues through therapy.
Although challenging, these are all an absolutely necessary part of healing. The good news is that you will have help every step of the way, from professionals who specialise in addiction treatment.
They will be able to help you adjust to your new surroundings, get through detox safely, and gain a better knowledge of yourself through counselling and therapy.
Rehab also has the added value of having a small community of other patients around you, who you will be able to share with and learn from through group therapy.
Some people, perhaps through a misplaced sense of pride, struggle on for years knowing they are in addiction but refusing to get professional help with it.
They may convince themselves that their addiction is manageable, or that is not harming anyone else, and therefore is ‘their own business’.
The truth is, if a person is in drug or alcohol addiction, regularly indulging in substance abuse, then they absolutely are causes damage to themselves and everyone around them.
Sometimes, it can take staging an intervention with the person to make them see just how much they are damaging themselves and others. This is something that we can provide detailed advice on over the phone.
The person may find it difficult to hear what everyone has to say, but sometimes it takes a step like this for them to gain perspective on their own behaviour.
How can I get into rehab?
This is the main service that we provide – arranging treatment at a quality private rehab clinic that is suitable for you. Not everyone is aware of this, but every rehab clinic has a different way of operating and will emphasise different types of treatment.
Addiction is complex enough as it is, without having to spend hours researching the various different clinics within your area, and considering how you would get on at each of them.
We take all of the hard work out of this decision and allow you to take advantage of our expert knowledge of the private rehab industry.
The process is simple – we take you through a brief telephone assessment, in which we ask a number of questions about how addiction has had an impact on your life, as well as your current circumstances and any other needs that you have.
Once we have built a clear picture of your needs, we cross-reference that information with our database of rehab clinics. We can then make an informed decision as to where to refer you.
If you are satisfied with our suggestion, we can provide all information required, and make your referral quick and easy.
We have locations across the whole of the UK, even here in Hugh Town. If you want, there may also be the possibility of going elsewhere for treatment, perhaps elsewhere in the Scilly Isles or in Cornwall.
Some people who are struggling with addiction prefer to get treatment further afield, perhaps because of bad memories or associations with their usual surroundings. However, there are some potential advantages to staying closer to home.
For example, there may be the opportunity during your therapy schedule of involving some of your loved ones in some of your therapy sessions, under proper supervision and guidance.
This can go a long way towards healing some of the rifts caused by addiction and the problematic behaviours that go with it. This would only be recommended if it were appropriate in your case, and only with your consent.
There are simpler reasons for wanting to stay closer to home, such as comfortable familiarity with your surroundings, or being in proximity to your support network.
This is something that you can discuss with one of our team during our consultation – there are advantages and drawbacks to both.
Whether your rehab is nearby or far away, we will ensure that the clinic in question is a good fit for you, and will give you the best chance of achieving recovery.
We have enough expertise to take all of the different factors into account and make the right decision for your treatment.
We can help you get into rehab in Hugh Town or elsewhere, with a very quick turnaround.
Since we only refer to private rehab clinics, there is no need to endure any kind of waiting list before getting treatment and improving your life.
Even if you are not yet ready to commit to rehab, and just want to ask for some advice, please call us on 0800 140 4690 to speak to one of our expert team.
