It’s never easy to admit that you need help, especially when you’re struggling with an illness that is still frowned upon by many who don’t understand it.
The truth is, drug and alcohol addiction is a real disease, which more often than not, requires medical assistance to help bring it under control.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we understand what you’re going through and are ready to help you take the next step into addiction recovery.
There’s no reason to be ashamed about a drug or alcohol addiction problem, but we understand that stigma still exists surrounding this illness.
You may be relieved to hear that many of our team are themselves in recovery, so they have first-hand experience of this process and hold no judgment.
We provide advice, guidance and referral services for those struggling with a drug and/or alcohol addiction problem, having a wide range of partnered addiction recovery centres in or around North Hykeham and across the UK, which we can highly recommend.
There’s no GP referral required when you use our referral services and no wait to begin your rehab programme.
Our helpline is confidential, free and available 24 hours a day. Reach out now on 0800 140 4690
It can be difficult for someone with an addiction present to recognise the symptoms of addiction in themselves, let alone know what level their addiction is and what type of help they will need to recover.
One of the major services that we offer, here at Rehab 4 Addiction, is to assess the severity of our current drug or alcohol addiction and recommend the treatment type that will be most beneficial to you.
To determine the severity of your condition, we will take you through a short assessment, which will include questions about the type, amount and regularity of substances that you use. We will also ask about your wider lifestyle, whether or not you have any pre-existing health conditions and your budget.
This will enable us to recommend one of our CQC (Care Quality Commission) regulated rehab clinics in your local area, or wherever you feel most comfortable attending.
It’s important that you are prepared to devote substantial time and effort towards your own recovery, not only because this will result in a higher chance of making a successful recovery, but because we will most likely recommend residential rehab.
This form of treatment provides the best recovery opportunity for those with moderate to severe drug and alcohol addictions.
Residential rehab is an intensive addiction recovery treatment that takes a holistic approach to your recovery and tackles both physical and psychological aspects of your condition.
A typical stay at residential rehab is around 28 days, although the programme will be individually tailored to your own specific needs, so this could be slightly longer or shorter.
You will have access to a renowned staff team of doctors, psychotherapists and addiction counsellors.
They provide you with 24-hour care and support in an environment that was designed to aid addiction recovery, with state of the art facilities and treatments in use. This is why it’s our most recommended treatment.
A few of the reasons why residential rehab works better than outpatient treatments in most patients:
After a thorough health assessment from the admitting doctors, you will begin your medically assisted detox first of all.
This part of the process will vary in length depending on the substances used and the length of addiction, however, substance use is reduced very gradually, in an attempt to minimise withdrawal symptoms.
For those withdrawal symptoms that are still present, you will be prescribed medication, where possible, to reduce the impact.
Once you have completed your detox, you will undergo a wide range of modern psychotherapy sessions that are commonly used in addiction recovery.
These will be tailored to your precise needs but may include therapy sessions such as:
Even beyond your discharge, you will be supported by a substantial aftercare programme, which includes regular check-ins with the centre and attendance to local abstinence-based groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
You will also be equipped with a detailed relapse prevention plan. We will remain available, day and night if you do feel a slip in motivation towards your newfound recovery, and we will address this urgently.
Whether you’re seeking help for yourself or a friend, family member or loved one, we can point you in the right direction to access the help that you need.
It’s important, however, that you or the person that you are advocating for our services is committed to their own recovery.
We can offer the best professional addiction recovery treatment services available through our partner centres, however, it’s impossible to force anyone to recover and the desire must be there in order to succeed.
Whether you are looking for rehab near North Hykeham or further afield, we can help you, just pick up the phone today and call us on 0800 140 4690.
