When should I consider addiction treatment?

Addiction treatment is available to everyone, whether you’ve just begun to notice the signs and symptoms of addiction in yourself or have struggled for many years.

The misconception that your addiction has to have reached a severe and chronic point before you can access treatment, unfortunately, leads to many people delaying their rehabilitation.

The earlier you deal with an addiction problem, the more easily you will be able to break addictive behaviours and recover. The ‘right time’ to consider seeking treatment for your addiction is therefore always going to be now, whenever ‘now’ happens to be for you.

Once you’ve made the positive decision to seek help, it’s important to ensure that you’re mentally prepared to recover. Rehab offers you the best possible opportunity to recover, however, in order to take full advantage of the treatments you will need to have self-motivation and determination to succeed.

If, like most people who are struggling with addiction, your end goal is long-term recovery, then attending a full and comprehensive rehab programme at a local Letchworth based facility, with plenty of drive to overcome it, offers the best potential to achieve that goal.

What can I hope to achieve through a private rehab clinic?

Whilst there are alternative rehabilitation options in the UK, such as the NHS community-based rehab programme, private rehab centres offer residential care and more comprehensive treatment programmes.

It can also be incredibly difficult to secure a place on an NHS programme, given the high demand for an area of healthcare, which is sadly, seriously underfunded.

All of our partnered private rehab clinics based in and around Letchworth offer highly comprehensive treatment programmes, which include the UK’s leading available addiction treatments. You will also have access to round the clock medically trained staff and experienced addiction recovery specialists.

Whilst this type of facility is not free, there is a range of programmes and locations available for different budgets. It’s also possible to utilise payment plans at most centres. The investment in your future health and the high standard of care that you will receive can easily be justified.

How does residential rehab treatment differ to outpatient options?

Outpatient treatments can be valuable for some clients if they have low-level addiction and minimal side effects from substance abuse. Treatments usually include support groups and other community-based support but are largely reliant on the efforts of the individual.

Those with more minor addiction problems can gain significant benefits from this treatment option, however, it’s important not to underestimate the severity of your problem.

That’s why speaking to trained referral specialists here are Rehab 4 Addiction will help you to assess your needs accurately before you decide the right course of treatment for you.

If your drug and alcohol addiction is having a clear impact on your life and ability to function as you did prior to your substance use, then you are likely to need to attend a residential treatment programme in order to overcome your addictive behaviours.

Residential treatment programmes of a more intense, structured approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment. They will design a tailored programme for each client which addresses their individual experience with addiction.

You will receive full support and guidance 24 hours per day, in an environment that is ideal for recovery, which allows you to focus on your health, away from the everyday triggers of your normal life and environment.

What sort of treatments will I experience in Rehab?

Each personalised treatment programme will vary, but the overriding goal is to help you slowly reduce your dependence on drugs and alcohol. The programme will address both psychological and physical attributes of addiction, whether they led to the addiction, or have arisen from the addiction itself, or both.

An initial detox will be provided in most cases, as this gives your body the opportunity to reduce its dependence on substances, allowing you to better focus on the remaining rehab treatments.

Detox typically takes up to 10 days of a 28 day programme and whilst you are likely to experience withdrawal symptoms, having full medical support throughout the process is the safest possible way to go through the process. Some withdrawal effects can be dangerous to your health, so it’s important not to attempt this alone.

Once detox is complete you will have access to a range of psychology-based addiction treatments, such as therapy sessions, support groups, wellbeing sessions and nutritional workshops.

The goal will be to unlearn your addictive behaviours, whilst tackling those factors that caused the addiction. You will learn coping mechanisms and how to avoid triggers once you have completed your residential stay.

Reach out to our team to begin your journey towards recovery at a private drug and alcohol rehab facility in Letchworth. We look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you achieve your goals of long-term recovery and happier, healthier life.
