How Rehab 4 Addiction can support your admission to a local rehab programme

The moment in your life where you decide to enter rehabilitation for drug or alcohol misuse is a time for great change. As positive as this might be as a concept, the reality of switching life of addictive habits for sobriety is challenging.

This is why it’s imperative that people access quality treatment and support from a team of professionals. Knowing where to go can seem a hindrance. It’s a lot to think about.

Finding out what all the rehab programmes and services are in Sedgemoor, then deciding which will be best for you, and then managing to organise it all, is a huge amount to navigate.

A referral through Rehab 4 Addiction takes the stress of finding out all this information and then making these arrangements off your hands.

Our team of friendly staff are trained to lead you to the most appropriate programme for you in Sedgemoor.

What types of rehab programmes are there in Sedgemoor?

Whatever substance you’re addicted to there are treatments to suit. Whether you have severe physical dependence or mild using habits which you’re able to control, there are various treatments that will work. 

In Sedgemoor, there are both inpatient services and outpatient. The first is what people usually refer to simply as “rehab”. This is when a person goes to stay for a number of nights at a rehab clinic. This is a really supportive space where immersive treatment takes place.

People who attend rehab leave having become sober. The team of staff provide aftercare services to support the person on into a future of abstinence. 

Within most towns throughout the UK, people also have access to free community services. This includes services for people with addictions. There are timetables of group sessions that people can sign-up to and attend where necessary.

Depending on the person’s needs and staff availability, people can also sometimes access regular one-to-one support sessions.

Rehabilitation programmes are designed to support people to make healthier decisions. They’re also excellent at helping a person to see where lifestyle changes need to be made. This is essential in order to facilitate a future of recovery.

What treatments are available?

Rehabilitation programmes in Sedgemoor have to cover the spectrum of needs a person has in relation to addiction. For recovery to take place an all-encompassing approach is needed.

This means a person has to stop taking drugs and alcohol physically. It also means that people have to think about the mental aspects of addiction. The drives and causes behind the negative habit.

At a private rehab clinic, people are treated by a team made up of doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors, and experienced addiction workers. With a well-rounded, solid approach to treatment, a person is better able to heal.

There are physical, psychological, and holistic treatments on offer to residents. In the lead up to admission to rehab, this can be discussed with the Rehab 4 Addiction team.

We explain the various types of treatments that you’ll participate in. It’s expected that when you go to rehab, you will be willing and determined to do the treatments.

Some of the therapies can be uncomfortable at times, but this is essential in order to create change. After many years of living a life using a negative coping mechanism (the substance), rehab reveals new ways to cope. Firstly, people have to understand where the addiction has come from.

How do you know it’s time for rehab?

Some people question whether it’s the “right time” for rehab. This is a tricky concept to unravel. Drinking and taking drugs are hard to quit. It will always be hard to quit, especially when an addiction exists. 

It does, however, become easier and easier to remain sober the more time passes and with the more lifestyle changes that are implemented.

The real way to know whether it’s the right time to access a rehabilitation programme is by considering the following:

  • What your symptoms are. Do you experience withdrawal? Do you feel stressed and worried at the idea of not being able to get drugs or alcohol?
  • General health and wellbeing. How do you feel the majority of the time? Do you feel exhausted, lethargic, are you slower to process things? Are you looking after your hygiene? Are you sleeping, eating, and getting any exercise? Do you look and feel healthy?
  • Effects on life. How have drugs and alcohol affected your relationships with friends and family? Has your financial, housing, or career situation been impacted? 

If your life is affected in any of these areas by the substance you use, it’s time to access treatment.

Addiction has been a huge problem for many years. Since the 1970s it’s really increased as a social issue. Since then, there have been many advancements in the types of treatments available. All of these treatments are available in the local Sedgemoor area.

What do I need to do to get a referral?
