When you are researching addiction treatment, the number of options can be overwhelming. There is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment programme for substance addictions, as everyone has different needs.
For this reason, it is so important to chat with a professional if you, or someone you know, is struggling with an addiction.
While many people will speak to their GPs first, many people prefer to get the opinion of an outside specialist.
For those living around Ross On Wye, our team is available to offer free and confidential support.
Addictions are complex, and often unique to each individual, so treatment has had to evolve over the years.
It’s important that your addiction specialist is not only aware of the latest developments in addiction treatment, but that they are familiar with the most effective methods, and know-how to build a bespoke rehabilitation plan for you.
Rehab 4 Addiction has a team of experienced and committed specialists, who are ready to help with a wide variety of substance and behavioural addictions, including:
Many people with addictions also have co-occurring mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and mood disorders.
In these cases, it is always best to treat the addiction and any co-occurring conditions at the same time.
It isn’t always obvious when occasional alcohol or drug habit has turned into something harmful.
The signs tend to be more noticeable to people observing from the outside, as recurrent substance use can affect decision-making, impulse control, and judgement, all of which can skew one’s perspective.
Behaviour that tends to suggest an alcohol or drug addiction include:
You are most likely reading this because you have begun to spot the signs of addiction in yourself or in a loved one. Early intervention is always best, without fail.
If you suspect that you or someone you love may be developing an addiction, speak to someone. This can be your GP, a friend, or an addiction consultant. Beginning the conversation is often the hardest part.
Once the subject has been broached, a decision can be made on whether or not it is appropriate to seek treatment. This is not a decision that people tend to make alone.
You might need to stage an intervention for someone you know or begin doing some research into local consultants. Rehab 4
Addiction has consultants available in Ross On Wye who can be contacted day and night and will offer no-pressure advice in complete confidence.
While you shouldn’t hesitate to begin treatment, you also don’t want to rush into it without guidance.
Abruptly stopping substance use after any length of time can cause harmful withdrawal effects, and settling for the first therapy treatment you come across can be counter-productive.
It is important to do your research, but you don’t have to do it alone. Contacting an addiction advisor for a free treatment assessment is incredibly quick and straightforward.
A 10-minute conversation will give you the opportunity to discuss your current situation and what you are hoping to achieve. After that, you will be given guidance on suitable treatment options, with recommendations from experts.
Your eventual treatment plan will usually comprise a variety of talking therapies and medical treatments, all with proven efficacy in combating addiction. The available addiction treatment options include:
If you are calling with concerns about someone close to you, we can provide you with preliminary advice and, if applicable, help you to organise an intervention.
Because addiction affects not only the individual but also those around them, we can also offer advice on family therapy.
It is worth noting that most drug and alcohol rehab is accessed privately. The NHS is a fantastic resource, but waiting times tend to belong, and we don’t recommend putting your recovery on hold.
However, there are rehab options available for any budget, and we are confident that we can connect you to a fantastic clinic in Ross On Wye.
Whether you’re looking for advice about a loved one’s addiction, or if you are ready to begin treatment yourself, our advisors have answers.
We work with the best rehabilitation centres in Ross On Wye and will help you to find a treatment that suits your needs and your budget.
