Rehab 4 Addiction

Just one more drink and then you’ll be done. Just one more night of drug-induced fun and then you’ll stop forever. How many times have you said something like this to yourself? If you have said it more than once, you likely need professional help to overcome a substance abuse problem.

Rather than continuing to pretend that you can stop whenever you want, why not pick up the phone and call someone who can help you? Call Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690 and talk to us about drug and alcohol rehab in Margate.

Your phone call to the Rehab 4 Addiction 24-hour recovery helpline is the first step in taking back your life from drugs or alcohol. We provide information about alcohol and drug rehab in Margate.

Rehab in Margate is made available through private clinics, the NHS, charities, and other organisations throughout the UK. There are even some treatment options available overseas if you are interested.

The point here is that you do not need to continue living as a slave to drugs or alcohol. You can overcome once and for all.

What Is the First Step of Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Margate?

Addiction recovery experts will tell you that the individual suffering from substance abuse disorder cannot truly be helped until he or she wants to be helped. Our experience shows us that the experts are absolutely correct. Therefore, the first question that one must ask him or herself is whether he or she is ready and willing to take the first step.

If a person is forced into it, he or she is likely to fail. If you do not see a problem with your behaviour, you are unlikely to change it.

So, what is that first step? It is admitting that you have an addiction that you cannot conquer on your own. It is a difficult first step, for sure. However, until you can admit you have a problem and that you need help with it, there is really no way to help you overcome that problem.

The second step is to allow one of our counsellors to assess your circumstances for the purposes of determining how severe your problem is. The severity of an addiction largely determines suitable treatment.

For example, your problem may not be serious enough to require a 12-week residential treatment programme. Perhaps you would be better served by an outpatient programme that includes 12-step work with a support group. The thing is, you will not know without undergoing an assessment from an experienced counsellor.

Do I Need a GP’s Referral to Attend Rehab in Margate?

You can go to your GP for help with substance abuse or addiction problem. Nevertheless, please understand that your doctor may be limited to the services provided by the NHS. Those services are often underfunded and involve waiting periods before space is available.

When you seek private treatment at a residential facility, there is no waiting involved. If needed, we can help you arrange immediate admission to rehab in Margate or the surrounding areas.

Although private rehabs can be expensive, many are prepared to accept government funding if you qualify for it. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we highly recommend that you go with residential (or inpatient) treatment when looking for rehab in Margate.

Residential treatment affords a concentrated and distraction-free environment focused solely on your recovery. Without having other things to worry about, doctors, nurses, therapists, and counsellors can treat you in whatever ways are effective. This allows for a shorter treatment period and greater chances of long-term success.

If you prefer to do an outpatient treatment programme, we strongly advise that you initially complete detox under the supervision of trained staff who can give you medication to relieve your withdrawal symptoms and alleviate any cravings.

They can also monitor your progress and your ongoing health and treat you accordingly.

What Therapies Are Used during Rehab?

As with an inpatient/residential treatment programme, an outpatient treatment programme consists of various therapeutic activities focused on teaching you new thought patterns, life skills, and coping mechanisms to help you live a life free of drugs or alcohol.

This could include support group sessions, individual counselling, music and art therapy, fitness and diet programmes, and other therapeutic activities.

As an outpatient, you will go to the clinic on a daily basis and participate in the therapy sessions that you are involved in. After therapy, you go back home. In our opinion, outpatient treatment is only an advisable course of action if you have a very stable and supportive home environment. We always highly recommend residential treatment programmes in the first instance.

Once you have completed your treatment programme, you will require aftercare, which usually lasts for about a year. This is essential as it has been statistically proven that if you do not relapse in your first year, you are less unlikely to relapse thereafter.

Many rehabs offer free aftercare for up to a year after treatment has concluded, and there are many charities and organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous that you can join for support and guidance.
