A debilitating illness, addiction is likened by experts to diabetes, cancer, and heart disease- in that it’s more biological than people think. Like other commonly treated disorders, it’s now understood that addiction is caused by a fusion of genetic, behavioural, and environmental factors.
With this in mind, At Rehab 4 Addiction we recognize the need to treat substance abuse disorder with both a medical and therapeutic approach.
We work with over 120 rehabilitation centres, all of which ensure care informed by the latest research in addiction recovery. If you’re based in Derbyshire and are ready to set your recovery in motion, we can match you with a leading treatment provider in your area.
Narratives concerning addiction often depict someone who is at their lowest point- without a career or a home. While this may be the case for some sufferers, substance abuse disorder is sometimes hard to spot.
Someone with a high functioning addiction may be successful in their job, commit too many social engagements, and appear fulfilled. In fact, a Public Health England Review discovered a correlation between high-stress jobs, and excessive alcohol or drug use.
Whatever an individual’s situation may be, there are telltale signs- often subtle, that are helpful to identify. Those suffering may lose interest in activities they once enjoyed, and become isolated from their friends, family, and loved ones.
Alongside this, other warning signs can include financial struggles and ask for assistance, or a gradual neglect of responsibilities. An individual may also exhibit signs of denial. This often manifests as making excuses for drug or alcohol consumption: framing it as a reward for working hard or achieving a goal.
If you, or a loved one, are starting to exhibit these signs, it’s time to make the initial steps towards recovery. Seeking help is often the most important step.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we’re committed to finding you the best private rehab clinic for your budget and a particular set of needs.
Through an initial phone consultation with a member of our supportive team, we’ll perform a health assessment, and form a personalised treatment plan.
Your care programme will be designed around the specific cause of your addiction, which a specialist can work with you to identify. Different causes yield different effects, and so require different treatment.
For example, if an individual’s addiction is underpinned by past trauma, a set of therapies will be used to gently work through their emotional needs. This programme will differ greatly from someone experiencing an environment-triggered addiction, such as work-related stress.
Our team recognizes that there’s no quick fix for addiction. That’s why we design a personalised treatment plan to ensure longevity, and that a client achieves long term recovery. This will include psychological treatments, working through triggers, and developing a plan for a healthy lifestyle upon the return home.
Depending on how urgent a case is, our clients can expect to receive a bed in one of our leading centres just 48 hours after reaching out. Once settled, the initial step will be to begin a supervised detox phase. This ensures a gradual reduction of said substance in the individual’s body, as opposed to a ‘cold turkey’ approach.
Crucially, our partnering residential clinics guarantee a relaxing environment and round the clock support. One of the reasons Rehab 4 Addiction advocates private care, is that the support is 24/7.
If an individual attempts to detox by themselves or through outpatient care, remaining in a triggering environment without aid for withdrawal symptoms makes a relapse more likely. While in a centre, you’ll have access to medical professionals who can administer medication, such as subutex, to ease symptoms.
The length of a detoxification process depends on the substance an individual is battling. Typically, alcohol addictions require a 7 day detox programme, while for heroin users this could increase to 10.
After this pivotal phase in recovery , you’ll be able to start your unique treatment programme, drawn up with the help of a supportive professional. A range of evidence-based treatment with your emotional wellbeing in mind will be offered.
The treatment perhaps most commonly associated with residential rehab is talking therapy. Proven to deliver fantastic results, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy tackles the negative thought pathways that come in tandem with addiction.
Alongside this, you’ll have the opportunity to partake in group therapy, wellbeing workshops, and holistic therapies pertaining to hobbies and mindfulness.
In total, your stay in a rehabilitation centre will amount to around 28 days, with room for manoeuvre based on individual needs. Though this may seem a long time, the prolonged nature of rehab stays increases the effectiveness of treatments. With more exposure to therapy and time taken to develop coping strategies- the return home will go smoothly.
While your stay in rehab is essential to recovery, whether an aftercare package is available or not, can make or break longevity. That’s why at Rehab 4 Addiction, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that with one of our treatment providers, support continues long after you leave the premises.
For one year post-rehab, we guarantee a free of charge aftercare programme. This includes access to group therapy for solidarity and regular contact from a member of the team. Keen to support your loved ones too, we’ll ensure a similar care package is available for them long after you’ve been discharged.
If you seek addiction support for yourself or a family member and are based in Long Eaton, our team is here to take your call.
