Rehab 4 Addiction

Are you considering getting help for an addiction? Are you trying to find out about rehab and treatment in more detail? Do you need to know what signs to look out for?

Addiction is often an issue with different levels, but there’s treatment available for every stage. It’s just a case of knowing what you need specifically. Right here, that’s what we’re going to go through. We’ll discuss different treatment options, different kinds of rehab and even what the timeline of rehab generally works out as. Whatever you need to know will hopefully be covered right here!

Is rehab the best choice for me?

When it comes to problems with drugs and alcohol, or even other addiction issues like gambling, there are a few key signals which might show that you need help.

The first and most basic one is an inability to stop consuming the thing you’re addicted to, even if it’s having an adverse effect on your life. Speaking of negative impacts, that’s a second sign that you need to get help – if it’s hurting you and those around you to a serious or even a minor extent.

Another key sign could be if friends and family notice changes in your behaviour, or even notice your inability to stop. Finally, if the substance is putting you in a position where it’s damaging your mental health, then it could be time to reach out.

Specifically talking about Rehab 4 Addiction, any “reaching out” will more specifically begin with a phone call to us, where we can discuss your specific situation and then figure out a way forward.

If all those signs apply to you and you’re already at the point of searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner, then the answer to the above question “is rehab the best choice for me?” is almost definitely yes.

Unfortunately, that won’t be the end of the “decision-making” part of this process. The next stage will be deciding what kind of rehab would work best for you. The second stage is deciding whether you should have inpatient or outpatient treatment.

This decision will be primarily based on the severity of your addiction. Those with a smaller problem will likely do better with a combination of treatments from various sources at home, whilst those with moderate to severe addictions are more likely to recover long-term with treatment at a residential facility.

The timeline of rehab

Like every other decision made in this process, the length of your treatment will largely depend on your specific circumstances. In addition, it will also depend on how well your initial treatment goes.

We’ve already established that a phone call with our experts will be your first step. Then, as in most places, a typical stay in a Rehab 4 Addiction facility lasts for up to 28 days. For the full treatment to work, you’ll need to commit to at least 10 days, but again this could change depending on what you need specifically.

It’s also important to note that addiction battles are often continuous even after initial treatment has finished. You’ll always be able to reach out to Rehab 4 Addiction for additional support, which you may need going into the future.

Rehab and treatments close to you

Now that we’ve discussed a few differing options for rehab and we’ve got a general timeline in place, you may be wondering what kinds of treatments you can get in your area specifically. When it comes to drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner, there’s plenty of assistance available!

In terms of inpatient treatment, our London facility is in a secluded environment, with lots of assistance available to patients at all times. In fact, the treatment spaces and recreation/residential spaces are in the same building, to aid in this even further.

Treatments available in rehab vary widely, but in general, the list will include:

  • Detoxes – cleansing your body of any and all addictive substances will most likely be your starting point in both inpatient and outpatient treatment
  • Therapy – this includes talking therapy, group therapy and counselling
  • Physical treatment – this includes reflexology (also known as zone therapy, where pressure is applied to the feet and hands) and massages

Meanwhile, if you’ve been directed towards outpatient treatment, local help offered to you may range from support groups to at-home detoxes to various kinds of therapy, much like the ones listed above.
