Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Hungerford

Drug and alcohol problems are much more widespread than people think. There are so many people out there who need help, who feel too ashamed to simply reach out and ask for it.

To get help from Rehab 4 Addiction, all you need to do is call or drop a message on our website. We’ll be able to offer you advice and support as soon as you contact us and if you’d like us to, we can also create an assessment based personalised treatment plan.

Residential rehab is generally recommended for those with moderate to severe dependencies. It’s a more intensive form of treatment overall and could also work better for those who are currently in toxic routines and/or home and social environments.

If that’s something that would suit you (which can be decided in your initial conversations with us), then we also have several residential facilities across the country.

Those aren’t the only two ways we can help you either. We’ll try to give you as much emotional support as you need, we can provide outpatient treatment if that’s something that would suit you better than inpatient treatment and if you’re worried about a loved one, we can also

What can drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford do for me?

Addiction is too deep-rooted to be cured or fully stopped in its tracks. Unfortunately, it’s a lifelong battle, that you’ll have to keep fighting after your initial treatment plan is over.

In line with this and as a slight side note, you can contact Rehab 4 Addiction at any point after your treatment is over if you need more help.

The intention of drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford isn’t to be a sudden, magic cure that will fully rid your life of addiction forever. As nice as that would be, it’s not a realistic goal.

Instead, the process will teach you life skills and coping strategies that you can use to manage your addiction going forward.

Many of the mental health treatments, workshops and even the network of support you’ll receive via drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford, won’t be accessible through other routes.

Finally, attempting to detox alone specifically is really not a good idea. First of all, it’s not likely to work, as withdrawal symptoms are mostly too strong to overcome without professional support.

Secondly, those same withdrawal symptoms can become very dangerous with certain substances.

How to prepare for drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford

One of the most important things to do before you get started with drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford, or anywhere else, is research. You’ve taken an important step by looking at this page.

But once you’re done here, you should look up every kind of treatment you can, individualising it to your specific circumstances.

This also applies to any residential places you’re considering going to. Look into the treatments that they offer and then consider what would work best for you.

Try to find out what their rules and regulations are. Again, this is something that can differ from centre to centre.

You could even make a list of things you need to take with you to residential rehab, to make sure you have everything. A few items that generally always make the “allowed/recommended” list are:

  • Sentimental or practical jewellery that you wear every day, like wedding rings and watches – bringing other valuables with you generally isn’t recommended
  • A notebook and a pen
  • Some money for vending machines etc.
  • Details of people you’d like to contact
  • Any clothes and toiletries you need

On the more negative side of things, a few items that nearly always pop up on the banned list are:

  • (Obviously) drugs and alcohol
  • Any toiletries that could contain alcohol (like hand gels etc.)
  • Outside food
  • E-cigarettes
  • Sporting equipment
  • Video games and DVDs

But again, this could be different based on the exact place you go to.

Frequently asked questions

Now we’re going to answer a few questions that we get asked quite a bit…

1. Do I need to be clean to go into drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford?

No, not at all. In fact, the first stage is nearly always the aforementioned detox, discussed above.

We’ll help to break the physical hold that addiction has on you, so you don’t need to worry about breaking it yourself if you’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

2. Will I be allowed visitors in residential rehab?

This is one rule that doesn’t really change from place to place – pretty much all of them allow visitors. But this is something you should research the specifics of, as different centres will often have different systems in place.

3. How should I handle the addiction of someone I care about?

It can be hard to know what to do if you think someone you care about might be suffering from addiction. It might also seem like the hardest path, but the best thing you can do is get it out in the open by trying to talk to them about it.

This also probably goes without saying, but you need to make it clear to the person that they have your full support. This isn’t an easy process and feeling alone can make it even worse.

If you know this person in a work context, you could also look into your work environment and company policies. The amount of change you can make might depend on your position within the company, but it’s always worth researching.

In this case, it’s also a good idea to ask the person what they’re comfortable with.

Finally, you can always call Rehab 4 Addiction for further advice and support.

What mental health treatments will be available to me during rehab?

Mental health treatment is a huge part of drug and alcohol rehab in Hungerford, or anywhere else. Common kinds of therapy and counselling used during both inpatient and outpatient treatment include:
