When it comes to addiction treatment, the sheer amount of choice on the market can be somewhat overwhelming. Some new ‘experimental’ treatments might seem appealing, in terms of cost or otherwise, but it is highly unlikely that they will be as effective in treating your addiction rehab is.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a service that can find the right rehab centre for you, based on your own personal circumstances and recovery goals. We have a team of expert advisors who, once they have more information about your case, can refer you directly to rehab in the Scarborough area.
Below are the answers to some questions which we are frequently asked. If you have any further queries or concerns, please call Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690. One of our friendly advisors will be glad to answer any questions you might have about rehab.
Yes, absolutely. We have the ability to refer to rehab facilities across the whole of the UK, including here in the Scarborough area.
All you have to do is call us and take part in a brief assessment. One of our trained staff will ask you a few questions about the severity of your addiction and your current life circumstances. The purpose of this is to determine which rehab centre would be the perfect fit for you – as you will come to understand, rehab is a highly individualised process.
During the call, we will also discuss practicalities such as what the timeframe of your rehab stay is likely to be, and how much that will cost. There will be complete transparency in this regard. Rest assured, your personal information is treated in the strictest confidence, and there is no charge for your initial telephone consultation.
While most of the rehab facilities on our books are purely residential, there are a number outpatient rehab facilities available too. To be clear, this simply means that you would stay at home in the evenings, and travel to rehab during the day. We can refer you to one of these centres, but will only do so under the right set of circumstances.
If there are aspects of your home life that are affecting your wellbeing, such as an antisocial neighbour or a toxic partner, then it is highly likely that you will be recommended to attend a residential rehab. This is because it’s likely that the stresses at home could jeopardise your recovery.
Staying at home could also increase the chances that you would be late or miss a session, which could also potentially diminish your chances of recovery.
While you’re in residential rehab, you can also discuss with a professional how you might change or manage your living situation going forward. A big part of the rehab process is putting together a plan for how you can stay in recovery after leaving the facility.
If you’re currently in the midst of a substance abuse problem, it is more than likely that you will be required to undergo a detox. In rehab, you will have the opportunity to detox safely and effectively, under the supervision of a trained professional. This is the only proper way to detox – doing it alone is extremely dangerous, so please do not attempt to do so.
Your detox will probably be gradual, with your consumption decreasing steadily each day. The healthcare professionals on-site will be there to help you through any unpleasant physiological symptoms of withdrawal.
As treatment varies from one service user to the next, it is not possible to give you an exact length of time, without gauging your personal circumstances first. Speaking in a more general sense, most people tend to stay in rehab for a spell of 28 days. This is enough time to complete the process of detox, therapies, education and planning for your reintegration into the wider world.
Still, your stay can be longer or shorter – it all depends on the details of your case, what kind of facility you are staying in. Once a decision has been made after your consultation, it will be made clear to you upfront how long your treatment will take to complete.
It is entirely possible to recover from drug and alcohol addictions and to live a new life free from substance abuse. However, this is not the same as saying that rehab is a ‘cure’. A cure for addiction does not exist – the fact is, we as addicts will have to actively participate in recovery for the rest of our lives, in order to minimise the chances of relapse.
Try not to view this in a negative frame of mind – instead, think of the wonderful life you will be able to have in recovery, free from drug and alcohol abuse. Think of how much money you will save, how much healthier you will feel, and how much your interpersonal relationships will improve.
