Recovery can be a confusing and sometimes overwhelming time – but with Rehab 4 Addictions’ resources and this handy guide, including services on offer and what to expect, things should hopefully become clearer.
Before you start to heal from addiction, it’s important to have an idea of your immediate future in your head. Overall, the better prepared you are, the better any treatments will most likely go. But for that to happen, you might need to learn about this subject in more detail.
This will not only help to eliminate the fear of the unknown, which could stop you from getting help otherwise, but it will also help you to be prepared for the kinds of processes you might face when you seek out treatment.
Going to an inpatient rehab facility may seem like a more extreme and daunting treatment option, especially in comparison to at home outpatient treatments (we’ll explain the difference in a bit more detail later). But a residential facility can be what’s best for people with a moderate to severe addiction, for numerous reasons.
Escaping from an environment where you’re spiralling may be the best way to break toxic, damaging cycles. Additionally, in residential rehab you’ll have much quicker access to the guidance of expert professionals, and you’ll be in an environment specifically designed and created to aid people in your situation.
Outside of more general knowledge on the subject of rehab, you may also be wondering what specifically to expect once you actually start the process. Once you’ve completed a preliminary assessment, most likely over the phone and with one of Rehab 4 Addictions’ experts, you’ll be directed to either inpatient (residential) or outpatient (at home) treatment.
Whichever one is best for you will most likely be based on how severe your addiction is, in addition to your personal circumstances and personality.
For example, to go into further detail and go back to our earlier point about the positives of rehab, some people may benefit from a more structured routine, whilst some others may do better in an environment they’ve partially constructed for themselves at home.
In addition, those with a moderate to severe dependency are more likely to thrive in a space where they have constant, instant access to help and support, where they’re also kept far away from the substances that have put them in this position in the first place. Some others may do better staying at home.
To go more localised and talk about alcohol rehab in and around Newark On Trent in further detail, Rehab 4 Addiction have various rehab centres across Nottinghamshire, with a variety of treatments including all of the ones listed below…
Most recovery plans won’t just have one kind of treatment – recovery needs to happen on multiple levels, meaning it will likely take several kinds of support for the process to work effectively and permanently.
Detoxing can be one of the most important first steps on your journey. Once any drugs or alcohol taken in before you started are out of your system, then other kinds of help will start to work more effectively.
Some of the other options available through Rehab 4 Addiction fall under the large umbrella of therapy and counselling. These include regular counselling, which is more generalised than bog-standard therapy, holistic therapy, which helps you physically and emotionally (remember that multiple levels thing we mentioned earlier?) and talking therapy, which as we said previously is more specific and personalised than counselling.
It’s also hard to get through a time like this without support from others going through the same experience – accordingly, Rehab 4 Addiction can give you access to various support groups during and after your treatment, including Alcoholics Anonymous.
Finally, we also provide various workshops on subjects such as health and of course addiction, so you can learn coping strategies which will aid your recovery long term. Even after you’ve left rehab or finished whatever initial outpatient service has been offered to you, it’s very important to keep on fighting so you don’t fall back into old, toxic habits.
