Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Lydney

Addiction is rife all over the UK. As lovely an area as Lydney is, it is unfortunately not exempt from these addiction issues.

Some of the most successful people in Gloucestershire are hiding their issues with drugs and alcohol – they may show up to work looking the part, only to binge drink when they get home.

Just because you can’t see others’ struggles in the same way that you see your own does not mean that they are not suffering too.

Using drugs and alcohol may seem harmless at first, but it can quickly begin to dominate your life. You will get progressively poorly, emotionally drained, and isolated.

Many people with an addiction live lonely lives as they have distanced themselves from their loved ones and have dedicated everything to their addiction.

If that’s you, we want to help you break free from this. With some professional help, you can gain the tools to fight back and get sober.

How Rehab 4 Addiction Can Help You Find Treatment in Lydney

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we put you first. We ask you questions about your addiction so that we can learn as much as possible.

This helps us to find the right type of treatment for you. You are also encouraged to be honest about your preferences so that your treatment plan will be as personalised as possible.

Though we take charge of the boring admin, we check that you’re happy every step of the way.

Our helpline advisors put the time into finding you an excellent treatment centre. They research local facilities for hours on end, trying to find one that suits your needs.

However, this does not mean they work slowly – you are likely to receive a referral just days or weeks after calling us.

Rehab 4 Addiction prides itself on its support services. Even after you have got a place at rehab, you can contact us at any time for support and advice.

Our advisors are always happy to chat with you and discuss their experiences with rehab (if applicable).

If you would prefer not to attend rehab, there are other options out there. We can help you arrange a home detox or register you with a local outpatient clinic.

Call us on 0800 140 4690 to kickstart the process.

Adopting the Right Mindset to Recover

Studies suggest that we can rewire our brains to lean towards positivity. By choosing to adopt a positive mindset for recovery, you will be teaching your brain to find the positive rather than the negative.

Here are some affirmations that will help keep you motivated as you get sober:

1. My addiction is not my fault

This is a complicated mantra, as we encourage you to take accountability for your decision to use substances. However, addiction is an illness that you cannot control. It is not your fault that you are tempted towards drugs and alcohol; all you can do is control how you react to that temptation.

2. I am more than my addiction

As terrible as addiction is, some people find their identity in addiction and are scared to leave it behind. You must realise that you are more than your addiction – drugs and alcohol only make you a worse version of yourself.

3. I am capable of getting sober

Instead of focusing on the chances of relapse, try to concentrate on your own power as you get sober. People of all backgrounds have successfully recovered from extreme addictions, so you can too.

4. I am excited to see what sobriety brings me

Try not to get too caught up in the challenges of recovery, and instead look forward to its eventual benefits. A sober lifestyle is waiting for you, where you can enjoy healthier relationships, new hobbies, and better career opportunities.

5. I am willing to put the effort in to change my lifestyle

As helpful as rehab is, you need to make some changes yourself if you want to avoid relapse. Be willing to do certain things differently, such as cutting out toxic friends and practising mindfulness.

6. I am open to different forms of treatment

The basic forms of treatment are the same at every facility – detox and therapy. However, different forms of therapy are on offer at different centres, and being open about it will allow you to get the most out of each type. Even if you have had a bad experience previously, you may be surprised at how effective therapy can be when you’re working with the right therapist.

12-Step Recovery

Our rehab facilities in Lydney follow the 12-step recovery programme that was initially popularized by Alcoholics Anonymous.

There are 12 detailed steps that explain how you can recover, but here is a brief summary:

  1. Recognise that addiction is taking over your life
  2. Believe that a higher power can help
  3. Decide to submit to this higher power
  4. Assess your good and bad qualities
  5. Admit to your past mistakes
  6. Believe that a higher power can forgive you
  7. Ask your higher power for forgiveness
  8. Make a list of everyone you have hurt and decide to make amends
  9. Take action to make amends (if it can be done safely)
  10. Make a habit of admitting to your mistakes as you make them
  11. Be in constant communication with your higher power
  12. Help other victims of addiction through these steps
