What do people go to rehab for?

People go to rehab for many reasons. There might have come a point where rock bottom has been reached.

Many people will have been living with alcohol and drug problems for years. The consequences of this can be extremely harmful and dangerous.

The body’s organs and mental health are usually seriously damaged. The increase in the risk of chronic illnesses and diseases will be what motivates some patients.

Within families, addiction can have an incredibly negative impact. Some will go to rehab due to the effect drugs and alcohol are having on their relationships

Whatever your reason for going, you can reach your recovery goals with optimum support. A clinic that adheres to top professional standards which prioritise your health and emotional needs is essential.

Rehab 4 Addiction will lead you to the most appropriate service.

Common addictions that are treated

Like countries, the majority of cities and towns have particular substances that are rifer than others. Some cities might have a particular issue around cocaine or ketamine or heroin.

In the U.S there’s a Xanax epidemic (known as alprazolam here) which hasn’t hit the UK (it’s unavailable on the NHS).

When a person goes to rehab, some centres might be more suitable than others. This might be due to a clinic being particularly experienced with a certain substance.

The choice of the clinic could, however, be down to the patient’s personal preferences (a person might opt for a rural setting over an urban).

Our team can discuss these different variabilities with you. We’ll also think about your substance use when we consider which clinic is best.

When you enter a residential rehab centre, you’ll meet other people being treated for addictions too. There are likely to be people addicted to the same substance as well as others.

Common substances that people are treated for in the UK are:

  • Alcohol.
  • Cannabis.
  • Crack and cocaine.
  • Ketamine.
  • Heroin.

It’s important to point out that people are treated for other substances too, including prescription drugs.

In some cases, people will go to rehab to be treated for polysubstance misuse and some will go to be treated for alcohol or drugs alongside a behavioural addiction (such as gambling or porn). Whatever you’re struggling with, you can contact us for advice.

What treatments will I need if I stay at rehab?

Being treated for drug and alcohol addiction is complex. As such it requires a variety of therapies and in some cases, medications to treat it.

Drugs and alcohol affect a person physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. This is why it’s imperative that all aspects are addressed during rehabilitation.

The initial part of treatment involves detox. Every person addicted to a substance will need to detox, especially when staying at a rehab clinic.

This stage of treatment will last up to ten days. The length of time really depends on whether there is a dependency and what treatments are needed to support the person through a tapered reduction of substances.

Doctors and clinical nurses are available 24/7 to ensure safety and the most comfortable transition to sobriety.

Mental health therapies are used to treat the deeper causes of addiction. This is also the place where people become empowered to make changes in their behaviours.

There are a huge variety of techniques people can use to reframe how they think and feel about the addictive substance.

As well as the physical and psychological aspects of healing, the emotional side is addressed too. People will take part in mindfulness, yoga, and art therapy.

These types of therapies provide a comfortable environment for people to become more self-aware and self-accepting.

I want to recover, what do I do next?

To recover from a substance misuse problem, you need support. The easiest way to become sober is in an environment where there are no triggers or opportunities to drink or take drugs.
