Times have been hard recently. They have been difficult for everyone all over the world and even with the promise of something better just around the corner, it doesn’t erase the feels you have had.
These feelings that may have been present for years don’t just go away overnight even if your overall situation has improved.
Maybe you tried to make these feelings go away? Maybe you turned to drugs or alcohol to make you feel good again?
Are you now worried that the only way you can feel anything positive is through the constant use of drugs or alcohol?
Are you beginning to worry you have developed a drug or alcohol dependency that you no longer feel equipped to deal with on your own?
If this is the case then there is no shame in asking for help. At Rehab 4 Addiction we are dedicated to helping you on your journey towards long term recovery.
We do this by taking the time to get to know you so that we can best understand your want and needs. We want to make the process of finding the perfect rehab centre as easy on you as possible.
Why should you use our services for a private rehab centre when we live in a country with free healthcare? You may be thinking, why not just get treatment through the NHS, it can’t be that different right?
Well sadly, while our country does have the wonderful NHS, the unfortunate truth is that the mental health services are criminally underfunded and undermanned.
The hard-working doctors and nurses do their best but they simply do not have the time to give you the one to one care a private facility could.
When the decision to get treatment is made, acting with speed is the most important thing. You need to be seen as soon as possible as to not stall your progress towards recovery. With NHS programs you will be placed on a waiting list possibly for months while they try to find a place for you.
Even when you are offered a place there is a high chance it won’t be in the Restormel area and you will have to travel. The treatment sessions themselves will also likely be outpatient and sporadic at best.
With Rehab 4 Addiction we can quickly find your ideal rehab centre within the Restormel area that offers residential treatment provided by around the clock staff.
We don’t need you to prove you are suffering enough for the help, we simply need to have a conversation with you to complete an initial assessment of needs and then we will make our referral for a local rehab centre.
While every rehab centre is unique with different facilities designed to treat different severity of substance abuse, they all share similar treatments.
One of the first treatments you will likely receive upon your arrival at the rehab centre will be a detox.
Now, the detox process can be dangerous if done alone. This is thanks to the withdrawal symptoms and the negative effects they can have on your body. A detox should only ever be attempted with the supervision of specially trained medical staff.
Within a rehab centre, you will be provided with this supervision. Medically trained staff will monitor your detox 24 hours a day to ensure you are safe and as comfortable as possible. Their most important job is ensuring your withdrawal symptoms don’t become too much for you.
Within a rehab, a member of staff is able to administer medication to ease your withdrawal symptoms and make the entire process run much smoother.
A detox gives your body a fresh start free from drugs or alcohol. It won’t be easy but it gives you the best possible chance towards recovery,
Following your detox, you will be able to focus on your mental health as your physical health has already been seen to.
An important part of the recovery process is therapy.
We know that drug or alcohol dependency is often a symptom of mental health problems and the only way to achieve long term recovery is by working to improve your mental health as a whole.
Through regular therapy sessions, your past trauma can be unpacked to understand if that is the cause behind your drug or alcohol dependency. It also allows the supervising therapist to look for any potential mental illness that may be the cause, such as depression or anxiety.
These therapy sessions will more often than not be group sessions.
Here you will be able to interact with others staying at the rehab centre and be supported by people who are working through the same process as you are.
It helps you become comfortable talking about your problems so that you can get the treatment you need.
In more severe cases it may be recommended that you take part in one to one therapy sessions where a fully trained therapist can help you work through your trauma and give you tools to avoid future relapses.
During your therapy sessions, you will develop a relapse prevention plan.
This is so that once you have left the rehab centre you will be able to avoid triggers for your cravings and replace your current coping mechanisms with healthier alternatives.
You will also be given the opportunity to attend wellbeing workshops that aim to reverse the negative side effects of prolonged drug and alcohol abuse.
These workshops can include nutrition classes so that you can learn how to prepare a well-balanced diet and prioritise your physical health as well as your mind.
Your treatment doesn’t end once you have left the rehab centre.
Recovery is a journey, not a destination and you have to keep working towards it to remain on the right track.
To aid in your continued progress rehab centres offer aftercare services that may include follow up therapy sessions or just have you join a support group in the Restormel area. This is to give you accountability, having people looking out for your progress will only help in the long run.
By asking yourself ‘do I need help?’ then the answer is yes. We are ready to give you that help all you need to do is ask.
Call 0800 140 4690 and our dedicated team will begin your free assessment.
You’ve made it this far, we know you can go all the way.
