Rehab 4 Addiction

If you’ve found this page, it’s very likely that you’re looking for alcohol rehab in Orpington, or any other kind of help. When facing addiction problems, it can be all too easy to suppress everything in the hopes that it will go away.

The longer you delay treatment, the worse your addiction could get. Not getting help could even be a deadly choice. And the worse your addiction is, the harder it will be to treat.

Once you’ve decided to get some form of help, the next big stage will be deciding what kind of help to get. This can be an overwhelming process, but Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help you sift through all of the options.

Is rehab the right choice for me?

When it comes to getting help/treatment for your addiction, the choices you make will depend on several factors – these include:

  • The severity of your addiction
  • Your budget
  • The kind of addiction you have
  • The kinds of treatment that you will best respond to

Addiction treatment can generally be sorted into two categories: inpatient and outpatient. As their names suggest, inpatient involves a stay at a residential facility, whilst outpatient treatment allows you to stay at home.

The one you’re recommended will most likely be based on the severity of your addiction – inpatient treatment, in a generally isolated environment with continual access to care, is usually used for moderate to severe addictions, whilst inpatient treatment generally suits those with less severe problems who would be helped by staying at home.

Another huge decision, which in many ways links to the aforementioned budget factor, is whether you should seek treatment on the NHS or go private.

The NHS has many resources but can sometimes be limited in what they offer addiction-wise and you may have a longer wait to get help. On the other hand, private treatment is quicker and will likely have more resources, but it can get pricey depending on your budget.

But you won’t have to make these decisions alone. Treatment with Rehab 4 Addiction always starts off through a phone call with one of our experts, to determine the best personalised path for your individual problems.

Why should I visit a drug and alcohol rehab in/near Orpington?

The decision to go to rehab is a huge milestone in your recovery process and it may seem too big or overwhelming – but it could be the key to kicking your addiction for good.

As we previously said, a conversation with one of our experts will usually give you an indicator of what kind of treatment you need. If you’re directed towards residential rehab, it means that you would benefit from being in an environment away from temptation and that having closer access to experts would also be beneficial to you.

If you’re looking specifically for alcohol rehab in Orpington, or treatment for any other kind of addiction and you specifically need inpatient treatment, you’ll most likely be directed towards our London facility.

This secluded centre is specifically created for those with moderate to severe dependency and has many features to aid in recovery. Rooms there include a swimming pool, an expansive garden area with both a picnic area, horse riding stables and a small fishing lake, an onsite gymnasium and a conservatory, as well as access to a steam room and sauna.

There is also free Wi-Fi across the facility, meaning you won’t be complete cut off from the outside world! And as a bonus, both the treatment and residential rooms are located in the same building, so you’ll have easy access to everything you might need.

What treatments will be available?

Whether you choose inpatient or outpatient treatment, Rehab 4 Addiction offers a huge variety of treatments, including:

  • A detox – Almost all Rehab 4 Addiction treatment plans start with some kind of detox, where the alcohol or substances plaguing you are cleansed from your body. Medically speaking a detox refers to the amount of time it takes for said alcohol and/or substances to leave your body. This is an incredibly important stage, but this can be dangerous to pursue alone without support from experts, as withdrawal symptoms can get deadly depending on what you’re detoxing from. In addition, pursuing this path without support also makes it a lot less likely to work, as it’ll be all too easy to “fall off the wagon”, to use a cliché.
  • Talking therapy – this one is exactly what it says on the tin. It involves talking to a professional, to truly confront the roots of your mental health problems. Another similar kind of therapy on offer will be holistic therapy, which focuses on the body, spirit and mind.
  • Counselling – Having seen both on this list, you may be wondering what the difference between therapy and counselling is. The biggest distinction is that counselling is more generalised, whilst therapy is more specific and specialised.
  • Alcoholics Anonymous or similar support groups – these kinds of groups can be very helpful, as joining one will mean you’ll be able to talk about your problems and meet with other people who are going through the same thing (it’s called a support group for a reason).
  • Health workshops – health workshops and sessions on other issues will help you learn how to be healthy, which can be a huge part of the recovery process.
  • A 12-step programme – This is another core treatment – as the name suggests, it outlines 12 steps that will help an addict to make a full recovery. Having this type of backbone can be great, as it gives you a clear path towards healing.

How soon will I be able to get treatment?

If you call Rehab 4 Addiction, you’ll be able to speak to one of our experts and develop some kind of plan right away. The amount of time it takes to get treatment will then depend on the treatment you’re pursuing, so your personal path will become clearer once this plan is set out.

How long will I spend in rehab?

If you choose one of our rehab facilities, there are typically two treatment time frames – whichever one you choose will depend on your personal needs. Typically, Rehab 4 Addiction’s inpatient/residential treatments will last for either 10 or 28 days depending on the individual’s needs.

No matter what kind of treatment you need or how severe your addiction is, it’s never too late to ask for help. Get in touch if you’d like to chat with our experts.
