If you’re looking online for help with overcoming addiction, there seems to be an overwhelming choice in terms of treatment options. Still, there are no other treatments on the market that can offer the intensive, comprehensive recovery process that rehab does.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a dedicated recovery referral service, specialising in getting people with addictions into an appropriate rehab facility in their area.
We take into account your specific set of circumstances, make a recommendation based on that information, and then make it happen as quickly as possible.
We understand that you probably still have a lot of questions, so read on as we answer some FAQs. When you are ready to talk, you can call us on 0800 140 4690, where a trained advisor will be happy to answer any other questions that you have, and start the referral process.
Whether you’re ready for rehab depends on whether you’re willing to acknowledge your own addiction, and commit to changing your life for the better. When you’re in that headspace, you are ready to begin the process of healing and recovery.
Obviously, the sooner the process of rehabilitation can begin, the better. Still, it requires an earnest commitment to getting better, however challenging the process of recovery may be.
Yes – if you commit to the process of rehabilitation, it is possible to recover from drug and alcohol abuse. What you should realise up front, however, is that it will not be easy. In fact, it will take a great deal of commitment on a daily basis.
You will be challenged, and forced to reflect on yourself and your own behaviours in a way that may be uncomfortable in the short term. However, you should also keep in mind that the long-term benefits of recovery are far greater than any short-term discomfort.
Rehab is about healing, and giving you the tools you need to start a new life free from substance abuse. It will be difficult, but it will also be worthwhile.
Absolutely – our sole purpose here at Rehab 4 Addiction is to find the right rehab facility for you. We refer service users to facilities across the entirety of the country, including here in the Mitcham area and elsewhere across London. We find that most people prefer to stay nearer to home during their stay in rehab.
As well as being in familiar surroundings, completing rehab close to home also means that there is the possibility of family-led therapy sessions.
Please note: this is something that will only happen with your consent, and if it is appropriate for your recovery treatment plan – this is something that you will discuss with a professional at your rehab facility.
If you’re currently in the midst of a drug or alcohol addiction, it is highly likely that you will need to undergo a detox process during your first days in rehab. With alcohol addiction, it is likely that you will reduce your consumption gradually over a period of time.
As your consumption lowers, there is the possibility that you will have to endure some of the physical symptoms of withdrawal – rest assured, these are temporary, and you’re in the best possible place to manage them effectively.
All detox procedures will be carried out under the supervision of a professional, which is vital – you should never try to detox on your own, or go ‘cold turkey’ – it is extremely dangerous, and can even result in death.
When you first arrive at rehab, one of the first things you will do is put together a treatment schedule that is tailored specifically to you. This is likely to include some from of group therapy and one-to-one counselling, as well as other more holistic activities designed to aid your recovery.
Some of these therapies may be new to you, but all of them can be helpful. All we ask is that you approach each activity with an open mind, and an acceptance of the idea that the activity in question could be beneficial to your recovery.
Towards the end of your time in rehab, you will put together a relapse prevention plan with the help of a trained professional. As the name suggests, the purpose of this plan is to minimise your chances of relapsing and falling back into addiction and destructive behaviours.
This plan will take into account your life circumstances, your specific addiction and the triggers associated with it. It will identify key areas to focus on, and other things to stay away from.
This may involve some difficult choices, such as ending a relationship or cutting ties with a friend who is still in addiction. Although these decisions can be challenging, they are all made with one thing mind – your recovery and maintaining your new life free from substance abuse.
A new life free from alcohol and drugs is entirely possible – you just need to fully commit to the process of recovery. We’re here to help you do that in any way that we can.
We can help you find an appropriate rehab facility in the Mitcham area as soon as possible. If you call us on 0800 140 4690, you can speak to a trained advisor, who will conduct a brief assessment of your needs.
This will include determining the timeframe and severity of your addiction, how it has damaged your life and your current life circumstances.
Once we have more information about your case, we can make an informed decision as to where to refer you to get the help that you need, at a facility in the Mitcham area.
