Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug &Alcohol Rehab in Market Drayton

Two of the hardest stages on any addiction journey are admitting that you need help and reaching out to get that help. But, even just by looking at this site, you’ve already taken those first steps.

Here, we’re going to discuss why rehab is nearly always the best option, we’re going to go over the different stages of rehab and finally we’re going to look at the ways Rehab 4 Addiction can help.

Can addiction be cured?

Even though this may sound like a harsh truth, we want to start off as we mean to go on – by being completely open and honest with you. The aim of rehab isn’t to cure addiction.

This is a lifelong battle, which is part of what makes it such a long hard road. But it can be managed, to a point where you can have a chance at a happy, healthy, drug and alcohol-free life. We can’t promise that you won’t ever relapse, as that does unfortunately happen.

But your best chance of avoiding that is professional help and support.

Why choose drug and alcohol rehab in Market Drayton?

Now that we’ve established drug and alcohol rehab as the best option for recovery, let’s look a bit more at why that is.

A large part of it is the complexity of addiction as a disorder. It works on a physical and psychological level, meaning that both mental health and physical treatments are needed to make progress.

For example, therapy and counselling are both key parts of the rehab process, alongside detoxes (which we’ll discuss in a bit more detail later). These two especially working in combination with each other could make all the difference long-term.

In addition, physical treatments like acupuncture, reflexology and massages can also play a huge part in lifting your mood. Finally, workshops can teach you life skills, covering various health and addiction-related subjects.

Easy access to these treatments is also a huge benefit of rehab, which you might not be able to find if you’re attempting to recover alone.

The stages of rehab

The exact process often ranges from person to person and from organisation to organisation. But rehab and addiction treatment in general mostly happens in the same few stages.

If and when you choose to get in touch with us, we’ll first need to establish your specific circumstances. We can do this in conversation with you, but we’ll also do an official assessment.

We’ll ask a variety of questions to establish 5 major factors: what you’re addicted to, the level of support you have in your current home environment, how long you’ve been addicted, how severe your addiction is overall and whether or not you’ve tried to get help before.

If you go into residential rehab, you’ll also start off with a more in-depth in-person physical and mental assessment. That may sound like a daunting concept, but it’s the best way for us to fully understand who you are and what you need before you get started with any other treatment.

From that point onwards, depending on what’s best for you, you could be treated at home or at a residential facility. Either way, treatment typically always starts with some kind of detox.

Over a period of 3 weeks, give or take, your intake of addictive substances will slowly be reduced and replaced with prescribed medication. Due to withdrawal symptoms, which can become very severe depending on what you’re addicted to, this is incredibly dangerous to attempt alone, without support.

After this, a typical rehab period lasts for around 30, 60, or 90 days depending on both your personal circumstances and how well your initial treatment goes. Then, to help you transition after you’ve finished your initial treatment plan, most people also go through some kind of aftercare programme.

This will primarily mean continued access to treatments like therapy and counselling, support groups and physical treatments of the kind we mentioned earlier.

How can Rehab 4 Addiction help?

Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we have several support systems in place.

First of all, you can call or drop us a message for support and advice on any addiction related issue. Even if you’re not the one suffering from the addiction, you can reach out to us if you and/or your family need help.

Speaking of those circumstances, if you can’t get through to your loved one, we can also help you with an intervention.

We also have several residential facilities if that’s the kind of treatment you’re looking for. These are secluded, private spaces, with access to treatment areas and residential/recreational areas.

And finally, as we said earlier, we also offer an aftercare programme, to help support your long-term recovery.
