If you’ve arrived at this page, it’s likely that you are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction. Although addiction is often a very lonely place to be, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Addiction is widespread, and does not discriminate – there are people suffering from substance abuse problems in every profession, all over the country, and in every walk of life.
If you’ve come to a point where you’re ready to acknowledge your own addiction, then you are ready to reach out for professional help. Still, knowing where to start can be somewhat bewildering.
There is a wide range of choice, running the gamut from self-help apps and online courses to full residential rehab. Although some cheaper options may be appealing, it is unlikely that they will be as effective as rehab would be.
Rehab can be a genuinely life-changing experience, providing you with the knowledge, education, and tools to overcome your addiction and stay sober. Rehab 4 Addiction is a specialist service that exists to find you a rehab facility that is right for you and your needs.
This is something that is not widely understood about rehab – it is always a highly personalised process. Everyone’s addiction is different – not just in terms of what substance they struggle with, but innumerable other factors such as time, severity, and pattern of their addiction.
This is the information we use to find the right centre, and give you the best possible chance of recovery.
The tailored approach continues in rehab as well. When you arrive at the facility, you will have a treatment plan put together for you, which will be tailored specifically to your needs.
Likewise, when you come to the end of your time there, you will take part in drawing up a relapse prevention plan, in order to properly prepare you for your new life free from substance abuse.
It starts with you calling us on 0800 140 4690, where you will speak to a trained specialist advisor about your addiction. We know that this could potentially be a daunting step, but please be assured that your information is treated with the strictest of confidence and that we are here to help you.
The advisor will talk you through the process and will be happy to answer any questions you might have. When you’re ready, they will begin a personal assessment of your case, where they will aim to find out more about your story, our addiction, and you as a human being.
The purpose of this is to gain enough information to be able to refer you to the right rehab facility in the Rawtenstall area. When we have determined an appropriate course of action, we will be able to go into detail on the costing and timeframe of your stay in rehab. We always approach these conversations with full transparency.
The average stay will normally be around 28 days, which is enough time to detox, go through therapy and education around your addiction, and set out a plan for your new life in recovery.
We appreciate that, in terms of time and/or money, rehab is a significant investment. Still, we encourage you to think of this as an investment in your future self – think of all the time and money you would lose to a lifetime addiction if you didn’t go into recovery. Compared to that, the cost of rehab is a drop in the ocean.
We at Rehab 4 Addiction have the ability to refer to rehab centres all around the United Kingdom, including here Rawtenstall and the surrounding areas of Lancashire. We find that most of our service users prefer to stay close to home when in rehab.
There are a number of reasons for this, including staying close to their support network, the convenience of travelling if they are an outpatient and having the comfort of being in a familiar area.
Remaining close to home also means that you may have more options in terms of therapy sessions while in the facility. For example, you may be able to arrange family-led therapy sessions, which could help you repair relationships with family and loved ones.
This will only be recommended if your recovery professionals deem that it is appropriate, and beneficial to your treatment plan.
A necessary part of the rehab process is going through detox. In rehab, your detox will be overseen by a group of medical professionals, which is essential – going cold turkey on your own is extremely dangerous, and can often be fatal.
It is likely, especially if you are detoxing from alcohol, that the process of detoxing will be gradual. This means that, instead of stopping straight away, you will decrease your consumption over a number of days before stopping altogether. There are many medical reasons that this is the case, which rehab staff will go over with you.
As your consumption goes down, it is likely that you will experience some physical effects of withdrawal. This could include nausea, dizziness, muscle aches, insomnia, and more
. It will be a rough process to go through, but the medical staff at the centre will be there to help you every step of the way, and to manage any physical pain in a way that doesn’t affect your recovery.
We hope that you now have a better understanding of what rehab involves, and how we can help you get there. If you’re ready to accept and acknowledge your substance abuse problem and commit to a positive, lasting change in your life, you are ready to start the process of recovery.
Call Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690 and let us help you find the right facility for you.
Things may seem bleak at the moment, but please know that you can recover if you approach rehab with an open mind and take the process seriously. Staying in recovery is not easy, but your new life free from substance abuse will be the best reward of all.
