Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Kenton

If you are stuck in the destructive cycle of addiction and substance abuse, we can help.

Rehab 4 Addiction has been operating since 2012, and in that time we helped countless people all over the UK get into a quality private rehab clinic that is the right fit for them.

We do this through a personal assessment over the telephone – to start yours, please give us a call for free on 0800 140 4690, or read on for more information about how rehab can help you.

The signs of addiction

There is some amount of grey area between a person who drinks or uses drugs regularly but is not dependent, and someone who has developed a full-blown addiction.

There are certain things to look out for that indicate addiction, and almost all of it comes down to the person’s behaviour. If your substance use has caused damage to your friendships, relationships, or career, then you are likely living with an addiction.

Likewise, if your use is such that has affected your mental or physical health for the long term, it is time to address the problem. For some people, denial can be the biggest obstacle to getting the help that they need.

If this is the case with someone you know, we can provide advice on how to set up an intervention for them. Sometimes this is the motivation that they need to finally admit there is a problem and get help.

How rehab can help

Rehab is an incredibly effective method in treating addiction, mainly because it pools together a huge amount of resources from different disciplines to give patients an unrivalled level of care.

Being in rehab for a month means that you can go through detox, get help through therapy and counselling, and prepare for walking out into your new life, all in the same facility.

You will also be able to get this top-quality care in a comfortable environment with good food, accommodation, and other amenities.

You will cover a lot of ground in your treatment plan, and have help from professionals with all aspects of addiction treatment.

This level of care would be almost impossible to arrange outside of rehab by yourself, and would probably cost a lot more money.

All things considered, it is not hard to see why rehab is such a popular and effective choice for treatment.

How referral through Rehab 4 Addiction works

It’s very straightforward – all you need to do is call us on 0800 140 4690, and you will be put through to one of our trained advisors. When you are ready to proceed, they will be able to start your preliminary telephone assessment.

This will involve asking some questions of a personal nature about your level of substance use, your life circumstances, and any other considerations that might need to be made for your care.

We ask all this so that we can cross-reference that information with our database of clinics, and match you with one in your area that is a great fit.

If you are satisfied with the recommendation that we provide, we can tell you everything you need to know about pricing and timeframe and get you referred in no time at all.

Reaching out to an organisation like ours is a big step, and we’re conscious of the fact that you may be concerned about divulging personal information to someone you don’t know.

This is perfectly understandable, but we can assure you that all of our calls are treated with strict confidence, and in accordance with the data protection laws of the United Kingdom.

Your information is safe with us, so this needn’t be a concern. Calls to Rehab 4 Addiction are also free from any UK landline, so you don’t have to worry about incurring a cost by talking to us – we can take all the time that you need to get through your assessment and referral.

Detox at rehab

If you are still using when you arrive at rehab, then one of the first things you will need to do is undergo a detox.

This can be carried out with the full supervision of a small medical team, who will be able to monitor your progress and manage any withdrawal symptoms that you experience, without affecting your chances of recovery.

They will be people who specialise in this kind of care, and will also be able to dispense medications where appropriate.

For example, if a person is coming off heroin, they might be encouraged to move on to a temporary medication like Subutex or Methadone, in order to lessen their pain and discomfort.

In a similar manner, some rehab clinics provide a ‘wet’ detox from alcohol, whereby drinkers will have their consumption levels reduced steadily over the course of about a week.

This can lessen the withdrawal symptoms in some way.

Although it is a necessary stage of any recovery, detox can be an unpleasant experience for many, especially if withdrawing from opiates or alcohol.

You should be prepared for potential withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, headaches, vomiting, increased anxiety, restlessness, and other forms of acute discomfort.

The good news is that these symptoms are very much temporary, and the staff will be there to help you to manage your discomfort.

Please note that you should not ever try to detox by yourself at home, especially if you have been using hard drugs or drinking.

This can be extremely dangerous to your health and can result in seizures or even death. Make sure you wait until you are under the care of medical professionals.

Therapy at rehab

Once detox is over with, you will be able to move on to your personalised therapy plan, which will span the rest of your remaining time at detox.

This may include but is not limited to:

There will also be a healthy emphasis on group activities, including group therapy. This is a great opportunity to share with others, as well as learning from their stories and perspectives.

Your plan is also likely to include some complementary activities, such as yoga or tai chi, and mindful activities such as meditation and gardening – these can be very beneficial to your overall wellbeing, as it is important to let the body heal as well as your mind.

Another important part of your therapy plan is preparing you for what happens once you leave. While you are there, you will learn some great techniques to manage addiction, with lessons on craving management and stress awareness.

Still, it will take an ongoing, proactive effort to stay in recovery once you are out. This is why you will be encouraged to evaluate your life choices going forward – for example, you might have to end a friendship or relationship with someone who is still abusing drugs or alcohol.

These decisions will not be easy to make, but your health and wellbeing have to be at the forefront of your decision-making. This is something that you discuss at length with a counsellor, who will help you to put together a relapse prevention plan.
