Are you struggling to cope with an addiction? Are you looking for treatment but have no idea where to start?
Look no further. We are Rehab 4 Addiction, and our job is to help those battling addiction find the treatment that they need.
We are an advisory and referral service with a vast network of outpatient clinics and rehabilitation centres spread across the United Kingdom.
We pair this network with information about our clients gained through simple assessments and match the needs of the client with their perfect treatment centre.
A drug and alcohol rehab in Knaresborough may be the most beneficial option for you, but to make sure, call us today on 0800 140 4690.
We understand that the prospect of rehab, and also leaving your normal life for a few weeks, can be extremely nerve-wracking.
But, there are some things you can do beforehand to ensure that not only your time in rehab is a little easier (and maybe even shorter), but also to make sure your life awaits you – intact – when you eventually leave.
We recommended taking the time to focus on admin-type preparations before you leave for rehab. Ask a friend or family member to visit your home every once in a while to water plants, check your mail or even just open and close curtains.
Leave your home tidy and clean so that you feel excited to return and not unwilling to go back to a long to-do list. Think about setting up automatic payments for bills that will need to be paid whilst you are away, and arrange care for any pets you may have.
It is important that you tell the people in your life where you will be going and why. Though this may be a daunting thing to do, it can help in the long run.
If you tell trusted family members, they may be more supportive than you think and can even take part in family therapy sessions during your rehab stay.
Telling friends can ensure that they will be waiting for your return, and will be willing to help with your recovery journey. If you are employed, it will be necessary to inform your job or employer about your plans.
Ask if you will be able to return to work when you are ready, and arrange cover for your workload to help them out if you can.
One of the biggest preparations to make is an internal one. Rehab is not a holiday from the real world, and whilst you will have time to relax, that will not be your main responsibility.
Rehab is a long and hard process, and it requires effort and motivation in order to reach its full potential and provide you with the desired results.
So prepare yourself mentally to put in the time and work that rehab needs, and be ready to participate in treatment, speak up in therapy, and meet new people.
It sounds clichéd, but having an open and positive attitude to rehab can greatly impact your recovery, just as being pessimistic or unwilling to take part in therapy can hold you back.
When you eventually leave rehab, Rehab 4 Addiction will not abandon you.
You will still have our help if you need it; additional appointments can be made for you at your chosen clinic if necessary, and you will receive a detailed aftercare plan to guide you through life back home.
Our free-to-call helpline is always open, and our team will be happy to answer any questions or give any advice to you during this time.
This being said, the majority of the responsibility to continue the improvement you will have made in rehab will now fall to you.
Don’t worry though, during your rehabilitation you will have undoubtedly gained all the knowledge necessary to stay on track.
You will have identified your personal triggers and learnt how to avoid them, and you will have also discovered new coping techniques to replace the old, unhealthy ones.
To help you along, we suggest taking a look at your social group. Make sure that the people in your life are supportive of your recovery, and will not be dangerous in any way.
If you have a friend that is pressuring you to use again, it may be time to move on from them.
Starting a new hobby or joining a new club or sports team can also positively impact your overall mental health, and can offer a great distraction and necessary deviation from your old routines.
Overall, it is important to simply stay as vigilant as you can. You will by now know the warning signs of a relapse, and the many symptoms of addiction.
If you notice any creeping back into your life, reach out once again to Rehab 4 Addiction.
