Rehab 4 Addiction

Often stigmatised as a lifestyle option, anyone suffering from addiction or affected by a loved one, can attest that the opposite is true. Substance use disorder isn’t a choice made by the individual, but a chronic disease. Using the brain’s reward system, addiction creates an inescapable pattern of behaviour, whereupon alcohol or drugs are relied upon to function.

Though addiction has the capacity to destroy an individual’s life, help is around the corner for those who need it most. At Rehab 4 Addiction, you’ll have access to a specialist from the word go. Together, you’ll work to find a suitable rehabilitation centre in the Prescot area.

What makes rehabilitation centres so effective in recovery?

In order to actively recover from an alcohol or drug addiction, a change in scenery is often needed to boost motivation. Staying with one of our partnering centres will provide a short term break from a triggering or overwhelming environment.

It’s a premature return to the home, and lack of round the clock support that often limits outpatient care from enabling recovery. An individual may encounter temptations, feel once again isolated, and be more likely to relapse in the future.

According to a recent UK study, 41% of adults agreed it would be very or fairly easy for them to personally obtain illegal drugs within 24 hours. One of the reasons we advocate for stays in rehab centres is to avoid situations where sufferers can return to the substance they are trying to avoid.

At one of our trusted treatment providers- you’ll be guided through a safe detox process. With a guarantee of 24/7 support, you’ll soon be prepared to begin a previously drawn up treatment plan. These treatment plans will be unique to your individual circumstances and will focus on tackling an addiction at its cause.

Unfortunately, mental health conditions often go hand in hand with substance overuse, and an individual may be using alcohol or drugs to self-medicate. At a rehabilitation centre, clients will be assessed by a psychiatrist specialising in addiction and will be diagnosed if needed.

From here, centres offer an intensive course of therapy, tailored towards the mental cause of addiction. In a study conducted between 2019-2020, 59% of adults starting treatment, had a mental health need. Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll choose a centre able to treat addiction alongside a dual mental health diagnosis.

Choosing the right treatment provider

With a multitude of centres offering treatment in The UK, navigating the right option for your needs can seem overwhelming. Moreover, once an individual has decided to begin their recovery journey, it’s crucial they receive the help they urgently need, without the added stress of finding the right location.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ve used our years of experience in addiction recovery to select a number of world-class centres. We work with over 120 residential centres both in The UK and abroad. Each provider has received our stamp of approval: vetted by the Care Quality Commission in England and Wales.

This means that in the Prescot area alone, we have a multitude of leading care providers- both in rural, and urban locations. To simplify the process further, we’ll arrange a confidential phone call, in order to get a better idea of your specific needs. Factors including your budget, preferred setting and addiction history, will be put into careful consideration when matching you with a rehab centre.

Moreover, if an individual’s case is considered urgent, and they require care immediately, we’ll ensure a rapid admission at one of our leading centres. In these urgent cases, you’ll be checked in no more than 48 hours from our initial phone call consultation.

Planning your recovery: What types of treatment are available?

As addiction itself is a spectrum, and each case different, we value the importance of providing you with a personalised treatment programme. This will be drawn up with the help of a consultant psychiatrist, initially through a phone call assessment, and modified later in your stay as you progress.

Our chosen centres pride themselves on the range of treatments available, informed by the latest research and scientific finds in addiction psychology. Upon arrival, clients will begin a detoxification process.

Typically, around 7 days in length, you’ll begin treatment in calm surroundings. Additionally, you’ll have the option to take prescribed medicine such as Subutex, to ease any withdrawal symptoms.

After the detox stage of treatment, you’ll begin a range of therapy, both group and individual, depending on your unique circumstances, as outlined in your bespoke plan.

Talking therapy, proven to aid substance abuse disorder by changing behavioural patterns, is one branch of treatment. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT)sees an individual work with an addiction psychiatrist to change the thought pathways leading to addiction.

This is particularly effective when used with Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. This helps clients to regulate the intense emotions that come with addiction.

Alongside these types of treatment, holistic methods focusing on aspects of daily life will also be available. These concentrate on sustaining a healthy lifestyle post-rehab and include workshops on exercise, diet, art, and mindfulness.

Care you can count on: support after rehab

After years of experience in the field of addiction recovery, we understand that the journey isn’t over when you leave the space of a rehabilitation centre. With this, and your future in mind, we’ve organised a post-rehab care package for all clients- free of charge.

For 12 months after your stay in one of our centres, you’ll receive regular check-ups, information on local support groups, and ongoing emotional assistance.

Attending support groups, including anonymous groups and therapy workshops, will build a community of peer support around you, and help to retain the coping strategies formed in rehab.

Family, friends, and anyone important to you and your recovery journey will be offered these services too. Workshops and groups for the loved ones of those going through addiction recovery, provide comfort for all those involved in the process.
