Addiction and mental health are gradually becoming destigmatised, but many people continue to close themselves off rather than reaching out for help.
Those with addictions might suffer in silence for years before seeking treatment, and the damage they do to themselves during this time can be incredibly hard to repair.
Recovery is often difficult but can be much more manageable with the right support.
If you have decided that it is time to get help, but aren’t sure where to start, then speaking to one of our experts at Rehab 4 Addiction is a great first step.
A stiff upper lip remains a prominent symbol of British stoicism, and the UK population are well-known for their ability to stand tall through adversity.
However, this means that we have a reputation for being emotionally guarded, as we are often encouraged to put up a wall and push through tough times on our own.
When it comes to addiction, this mentality acts as a rigid barrier that prevents people from accessing the help they need to begin recovery.
It puts unfair pressure on those with addictions, and leaves them with two options: continue as they are now, or try to fix themselves, despite not knowing how.
In many cases, they will choose the former, as attempting to recover on their own may seem impossible.
With proper support and professional treatment, addiction recovery is simple. In order to access the support they need, people need to overcome their fear of being open and vulnerable with others.
It is therefore imperative that those who are battling addiction are supported and encouraged to seek help. By urging more people to commit to addiction treatment, we can slowly begin to remove the stigma surrounding it.
If you are ready to give up drugs or alcohol, but aren’t sure where to begin, or are afraid to speak to people you know about it, it can help to talk to a third party.
At Rehab 4 Addiction we offer free and confidential rehab assessments via telephone, which don’t require a referral from your GP.
No one in your life needs to know that you are accessing addiction treatment until you are completely comfortable disclosing it, but it can help to have the support of your loved ones.
Once you feel that the time is right, it only takes a phone call to begin the process. If necessary, you might even be able to move into a private rehab facility the same day.
There are several treatment centres available in and around Market Bosworth, and going-private greatly reduces your waiting time.
Many people who make the decision to enter rehab have only a vague idea of what it entails.
Most of our understanding of rehab comes from the media, which paints an inaccurate – and often negative – picture.
Most people will turn to one of two places when trying to learn more: their GP, and the internet.
While your GP is an excellent first port of call when looking to overcome addiction, they can’t offer the same level of expertise and advice as an addiction specialist.
They will usually refer you to a local addiction treatment centre, but NHS-run centres are usually at capacity and have long waiting lists, and not all NHS GPs will have contacts at private facilities.
When you search the internet, you will be bombarded by search results, and it can be easy to spend hours reading and still not gain the information you need.
There are answers available in there, but it could take you days to find them.
Your best bet is to get in touch with a specialist service directly, which is where Rehab 4 Addiction can help.
We work with a number of private rehab centres around Market Bosworth and can put you in touch with them right away.
We first ask a few questions regarding your current circumstances to gauge which centre and services might be best for you.
Again, it may be daunting to open up about your addiction, but you can be assured that our team are kind, discrete, and only here to help.
Any information we gather is only ever used to ensure that you are referred to the best possible rehab.
Different centres work with different specialists, and so their offerings can vary. Providing us with a detailed rundown of your needs and expectations will help us put together the right referral.
Simply trying to rush into the first available place, without knowing what they can offer, could result in you beginning a treatment plan that isn’t right.
This would heighten the risk of you cancelling the treatment before you have fully recovered, and you might then be reluctant to try something new later down the line.
For that reason, we work with consultants who are experienced in creating tailored treatment plans, as these are more likely to work in the long term.
No two people are alike, and what has worked for others might not work for you. Even though you will be attending rehab with several other people, you will not all attend the exact same treatments.
Treatment plans are comprised of a number of therapies that have been proven to work well together, and the plans can change if needed. Treatments you might encounter include:
Drug and alcohol use is a common means of escape from the stresses of everyday life, and with the recent pandemic, life has been more stressful than ever.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we want to help the people of Market Bosworth to see that addiction does not have to be a lifelong illness.
We want to help people to build a support network that will guide them through recovery and out the other side, ensuring a life free of addiction.
Whether you are seeking advice for yourself, or for a loved one, we are available 24/7 to answer any questions relating to drug and alcohol abuse.
If needed, you may even be able to secure an immediate position in a rehab centre local to you.
