Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Rushcliffe

Drug and alcohol addiction is the cause of many traumatic experiences for people and families throughout the UK. There comes a point for many who use drink and drugs where they want to leave the substance in their past.

If you’ve had enough of your life is focused on the next drink or high then you’re most probably ready to access a rehabilitation programme in Rushcliffe.

This is a time in your life where finding the best support to suit your needs is critical.

How do I find the best programme for me?

It can be really difficult trying to navigate all the drug and alcohol treatment options in Rushcliffe. With so many services and teams available in the local area, it can be frustrating to talk to them all too.

This is the point that a Rehab 4 Addiction referral can make the admission part of rehab much easier for you.

In Rushcliffe, there are both inpatient and outpatient services. There are various factors that will influence what is the best option for you and what your treatments on each programme will look like.

When you access a pre-assessment with Rehab 4 Addiction, we find out about the severity of the addiction you have, as well as the different aspects of your life and how you function within them. We also consider what it is you want from the future.

This along with our expert knowledge on treatments throughout the UK means that we’re able to give you the most suitable recommendation.

We tend to advise people to stay local to the area they live in. This supports abstinence goals more thoroughly into the future.

Does rehab actually work?

Rehab works for thousands of people throughout the UK every day. Attending a private clinic especially provides a full package of support which increases a person’s chances of recovery.

Deciding to remove a substance from your life that you’ve been addicted to for many years is a huge decision. It’s no easy task. This is why support is needed.

A team of experienced and highly qualified staff provide a solid foundation to lead you through the beginning stage of sobriety.

However, with all that said, it’s critical that people wanting to quit an addiction put everything they have into it. Determination, willpower, and commitment are non-negotiable.

There will be uncomfortable times and it’s important to be ready to face the discomfort of those moments head-on.

By working with a rehab team, you’ll learn strategies to make the most challenging times more approachable. With more practice, the cravings and withdrawals start to get easier to face and occur less regularly.

It is possible for you to heal and recover.

How long is a stay at rehab?

Rehabilitation programmes differ for each individual. This will depend on each person’s circumstances and the treatments required.

The types of service a person access will also influence how long a person is in treatment.

When a person attends outpatient services within their local community while living at home, their treatment will last as long as the person and their keyworker sees fit.

In terms of a residential stay at a private rehab clinic, it works a little differently. The programmes are immersive and include sessions regularly throughout the time spent there. Residents usually stay from seven days up to an entire month.

This can be discussed with a member of the Rehab 4 Addiction team if you have more questions.

What therapies do you do at rehab?

It’s really important that the whole of a person is treated in order to achieve full recovery. This means the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of a person needs to be considered.

During a stay at rehab, residents have full access to the therapies outlined in their tailored treatment programme. It’s expected that people willingly participate. This is essential for the most solid recovery to begin to take place.

People are usually offered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as this provides a deep understanding of where a person’s addiction is triggered.

Being able to identify triggers and the onset of cravings is vital in order to be able to face and overcome them. CBT goes on to equip people with the tools required to face these difficult moments.

Other therapies include Dialectical Behavioural Therapy which is really beneficial to people experiencing deep emotional pain and trauma. Motivational Interviewing is highly successful at guiding people to a point of self-confidence and self-belief. It’s also space where positive future goals can be identified.

Holistic therapies are provided in order to give residents a well-rounded approach to healing. Many people take part in reiki, tai chi, yoga and equine therapy in order to connect with themselves and nature.

This part of treatment can be very healing and many people enjoy accessing social activities in these areas after leaving rehab.

Is detox essential to treatment?

For therapies to take place effectively, a person needs to have a clear head and system. The chemicals in the brain and hormonal balances need to be as balanced as possible. This is why detox is really important.

Detox at a private clinic means being supported by a medical team to clear the body of alcohol and drugs. It’s recognised that withdrawal symptoms can be very distressing and painful for some.

This is why an in-house doctor is able to prescribe necessary medication to help ease uncomfortable symptoms.

After detox, the rest of the therapies can begin.

Do I get support after a stay at rehab?

All residents who stay at a clinic are offered support after leaving rehab. Attending a clinic in Rushcliffe makes this part of the programme much easier. 

There will be individual and group sessions that you’ll be invited and encouraged to attend for the next twelve months. Maintaining contact with the professional team and peers really supports a person’s life of recovery.
