When you say “rehab”, most people will probably have one (likely media-driven) image in mind. But it can actually vary quite a bit depending on what you personally need.
Every case is unique and has different factors going into it, especially as addiction itself works on both a physical and psychological level.
To use a few examples, some people’s addictions could be driven by toxic home environments, other people’s could be influenced by severe traumas that need to be dealt with specifically and some people simply have addictive personalities. And in a lot of cases, all three of those apply.
We’re going to talk about how we personalise our treatment plans at Rehab 4 Addiction below. Before that, we also have more information on other services we offer, as well as the benefits of professionally supported rehab overall.
The two primary benefits of rehab are the management skills and life skills you’re taught. Addiction is really too complex and difficult to be completely cured. But it can be handled, to the point where you can get your life back.
One of the main ways you’ll learn to manage your addiction through treatment is via various kinds of therapy and counselling. While those treatments, in addition to support groups, will allow you to confront the psychological side of addiction, rehab also aims to deal with the physical side too.
The main way this is done is via an initially supported detox, which is the way nearly all treatment plans start. Over a period of about 3 weeks, your intake of addictive substances will slowly be reduced, to break the dependency that causes withdrawal symptoms. Said withdrawal symptoms are also the reason.
Another very important part of professional treatment is the level of support you’ll receive, on both an emotional and treatment level. Everything you undertake on this journey will be with an entire organisation behind you.
Staying close to home is also very important to a lot of people, especially as it’s far more convenient than going somewhere far away.
If you do end up choosing residential rehab, it can also make the transition back to normal life a lot easier, making relapse a lot less likely. As a side note, that is of course another major goal of the rehab process.
The main difference between inpatient (residential) and outpatient (at-home) rehab is environmental. A lot of the physical and mental treatments are either the same or very similar, but residential rehab is in a more intensive space within a schedule, as it’s designed for those with moderate to severe dependencies.
Now let’s talk about what Rehab 4 Addiction in particular offers. First of all, if you simply drop a message on our website or call us, we’ll be able to offer any advice and support you need.
Even if you’re not the person suffering from the addiction, we could still help you.
Speaking of those circumstances, if you feel that someone you care about needs one, we can also help you win an intervention. It may sound drastic, but sometimes it’s the best way to get through to someone who’s still in denial.
Finally, we have several residential centres. These have residential, recreational and treatment spaces, making them a relaxed and secluded space.
If you’d like something more specific, we can also create a precise plan for you, based on our initial conversations as well as a more formal assessment. As we established earlier, every addiction situation is different – through a series of questions, we’ll be able to establish what your specific needs are.
A few things we need to establish are what you’re addicted to, how severe your addiction is, the level of support you currently have and your previous experience with addiction treatment.
If residential rehab turns out to be for you, you’ll also likely be asked to complete another full mental and physical assessment before you get started.
Addiction is a lifelong battle – reflecting this, a majority of treatment plans also include some kind of aftercare programme. Whether you go through residential or at-home rehab, this will mostly mean continued access to both mental and physical aforementioned treatments.
You can of course continue to access all of these treatments even outside of official aftercare programmes. And if you’re ever struggling, you can always get back in touch with us.
Overall, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been through this 50 times or if you’re completely new to all of this. It might make a difference in how much you need to learn, but you’ll always be able to get the same treatments and re-learn the same strategies.
Most importantly, you’ll always be able to get the same level of support. You don’t ever have to do this alone.
