Rehab 4 Addiction

If you live in Sedgley are require professional drug or alcohol treatment, then what follows could save your life. Like elsewhere in the West Midlands, Sedgley is affected by drug and alcohol addiction.

Those affected are often let down by the NHS and their local council when it comes to statutory treatment options due to budget cuts. This has particularly been the case in over the last five years because of local government cuts to addiction treatment services.

Fortunately, there exist many free or highly affordable private treatment options for those of you experiencing problems with drugs or alcohol in Sedgley.

Rehab 4 Addiction acts as a free signposting service for people seeking drug and alcohol rehab in Sedgley. When you contact us, we conduct a free assessment.

The information you share during this assessment allows us to recommend rehab treatment in Sedgley that’s 100% tailored to your needs. In turn, this will also greatly improve the success of addiction treatment you receive in Sedgley.

Getting over the stigma of drug and alcohol addiction

If you suffer from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you may attempt to deny that you actually have a problem. Denial is common amongst those affected by drug and alcohol addiction, mainly because of the negative stigma that’s attached to addiction.

It’s essential for you to overcome denial in order for your treatment to begin. If you are not willing to admit to yourself that you have a problem, then you are probably wasting your time when it comes to seeking out addiction treatment.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, all of our helpline assistants are professional interventionists. This means we are trained in helping either you or your loved one overcome feelings of denial.

We may travel to your location in Sedgley to conduct an intervention. However, the vast majority of our intervention sessions are conducted over the telephone. Undergoing an intervention is considered a precursor to attending residential drug or alcohol rehab in Sedgley.

What causes addiction?

One of the main reasons that perpetuate this stigma attached to addiction is the belief that those affected by addiction choose to continue to take drugs or drug alcohol.

However, this belief is unfounded. Medical professionals almost unanimously agree that addiction is a disease. This disease theory of addiction largely means that addiction is not a choice, but rather the symptom of an underlying mental health problem.

It is important to understand that you are not in any way to blame for your addiction. Knowing this will help to remove a burden from your shoulder.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, it is our task to help you realise that you are a sick person who is in need of help and that you are not a bad person because of your addiction.

What sort of treatment is available in Sedgley?

When it comes to seeking out professional addiction treatment in Sedgley, you are not alone. Each year, Rehab 4 Addiction assists thousands of people in seeking our addiction treatment across the West Midlands region.

When you contact us, we advise you on the available treatment options in Sedgley. If you are acutely addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is highly likely you will require the services of a residential rehab clinic in Sedgley. Here, you will undergo detoxification under strict clinical guidance.

Life-threatening withdrawal symptoms will be closely monitored during this period. These withdrawal symptoms will be treated using a range of prescription medications.

Medications will be prescribed by a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist will decide which medications to prescribe to you when you are assessed upon admission.

During your detox, the physical aspects of addiction are treated. However, you will also begin to attend daily therapy sessions. Therapies assure the mental aspects of addiction are sufficiently treated.

When you are admitted into the safety of a residential rehab clinic, you are cut off from your normal environment. Thus, all temptations are removed. Your family members will be allowed to visit you once or twice a year.

Additionally, many rehab clinics also offer an element of family therapy. Family therapy sessions allow you and your family to repair the damage inflicted on your relationships by your addiction.

Therapy sessions aim to help you understand the conscious and unconscious reasons why you engage in substance misuse. You will then be taught to improve your cognitive abilities so you are able to overcome negative emotions without resorting to drug or alcohol use.

Will my treatment meet my needs?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes. All treatment programmes we recommend are fully tailored to your needs. Each treatment plan is unique. Everyone has unique treatment needs, and these needs are fully reflected in your treatment plan.

What are the drawbacks of attending a residential rehab in Sedgley?

Whilst we highly advocate residential rehab in Sedgley, there are a number of drawbacks related to this approach. Firstly, you will need to attend the rehab clinic for at least ten days.

During this time, you will not be able to go to work or return home. This may mean that residential rehab is impractical for some. Secondly, residential rehab is highly intensive.

You will attend therapy sessions literally throughout the day. This may mean residential rehab is too much for some people to bear. Thirdly, residential rehab may be cost-prohibitive for some.

You should expect to pay at least £2,000 for a basic detox programme. A full 28-day programme may cost in the region of £4,000-£6,000.

If you are not sold on the idea of spending time away from home in order to overcome your addiction, you may benefit from other forms of addiction treatment.

These include addiction counselling, outpatient treatment and home detoxification. For more information on these alternative treatment options, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.

What type of treatment providers do you recommend?

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we recommend treatment programmes offered by the NHS, statutory bodies, local charities and private companies. This wide range of treatment options means we are able to offer treatment that’s either free or affordable.

Many statutory and NHS treatment providers typically require you to submit to a relatively long waiting list. To avoid this waiting period, we also recommend the treatment offered by private companies.

Although this treatment is not free, you will be able to access this treatment immediately, or within 24-hours.
