Rehab 4 Addiction

There are many challenges facing anyone trying to recovery from addiction, not least of which is denial. It can be all too easy to convince ourselves that there is nothing wrong, perhaps that our substance abuse is just a temporary symptom of a challenge that we’re going through.

The problem is, life will always through challenges our way, and substance abuse does not help – it just makes everything much more difficult in the long run.

The longer a person stays in denial about their addiction and destructive behaviour, the more difficult it is to recover. When you address your addiction is a decision that only you can make.

Whenever you get to a place where you are ready to accept and acknowledge your addiction, Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help you.

We are a specialist drug and alcohol rehab referral service that can help people get into a rehab facility that is appropriate for their own needs and circumstances. Our partners have locations all over the UK, including here in the Rochester area.

Rehab and mental health

A large proportion of those who suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction will also have some kind of adjoining mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, OCD or others. It may be that these chronic mental health issues are the root cause of the addiction, or that they are making the addiction worse now, or both of the above.

This is why any rehab facility that we refer you to will have on-site mental health professionals who will be able to help you work through whatever issues you may have, and plan specific treatment around you.

The aim is to give you a better understanding of mental health and wellness, while also giving you the tools to improve your mental health going forward.

The benefits of rehab

There are a wide range of choices when it comes to treating addiction, but none of them are as comprehensive, or effective, as rehab. This is because a stay in rehab covers all aspects of the recovery process under one roof while giving you respite from the stresses and challenges of your current life under addiction.

As well as handling the physical side of things, such as a fully supervised medical detox, rehab will also give you the opportunity to address the psychological issues underlying your addiction.

The idea is that you will be able to get to the root of the problem and address the issues. This will dramatically increase your chances of staying in a state of healthy recovery.

Through ongoing group therapy sessions and weeks of cohabitation, you will also have the chance to meet others in recovery and form healthy new relationships where appropriate. Hearing other people’s stories could give you a new perceptive on your own addiction and the disease of addiction in general

Recovery doesn’t end when you walk out of the rehab facility – it has only just begun. That’s why, towards the end of your time at rehab, a professional will help you plan how to minimise your chances of relapse once you leave and begin your new life.

How does rehab referral work?

As mentioned above, rehab and recovery are not one-size-fits-all – it requires a highly-personalised approach to get results. This is why, when you call Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, one of the first things that we will do is conduct an individual assessment with you.

This will aim to properly identify specific characteristics of your addiction, such a how long it has been happening, what your triggers are, and any life circumstances which might be currently making it worse.

Once we have got to know you better, we will be in a position to refer you to a rehab facility that is right for you. We will also offer full transparency around how long your stay will be, and what the cost will be.

When you arrive at the rehab centre, your care will be further personalised, as you put together a treatment plan with the help of an on-site professional.

The treatment plan will cover the whole of your stay and will include several kinds of therapies. This may include counselling and group activities, as well as holistic therapies such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and other mindful activities such as gardening.

The idea is that these different therapies have an accumulative effect, and contribute to your recovery one piece at a time. Although the benefit of some of these activities may not be immediately apparent to you, you should trust that each activity has been assigned with your personal recovery in mind.

As you come to the end of your time at rehab, you will put together a relapse prevention plan, with the assistance of on-site professionals. Again, this is tailored exclusively to you.

The idea of this exercise is to give you the tools and coping techniques you will need to utilise to stay in recovery and minimise your chance of relapse. After all, the process of recovery does not finish once you leave rehab – your new life has only just begun.
