Coming to terms with the fact that you, or someone you love, might be struggling with a drug or alcohol dependency can be very hard
It’s easier to pretend as though everything is fine sometimes because it means that you won’t have to deal with the bigger problem at hand.
However, that is referred to as denial, and that can be far more damaging than most realise. Ignoring the symptoms of addiction can completely jeopardise your chances of recovery and put your mental and physical health in danger.
By choosing to not seek help, you encourage your dependency on drugs and/or alcohol to be a prominent necessity in your life.
We understand that making the jump to make a change can be very daunting as well, and is often part of the reason people choose to remain in the shadows.
Looking for the right kind of help and having to figure out what treatment is best for you may be overwhelming and stressful. That’s where we come in.
We’re here to help you acknowledge your addiction and work through it with a series of treatments.
Life can be incredibly stressful. People deal with it through a series of manners, but one of the most popular, and harmful, ways is through a series of addictive habits.
When you’re struggling with a drug and alcohol addiction, it’s far easier to deny that that is the case, especially when it’s something you can rely on to help you get through the day. Without this crutch, it can be scary and uncomfortable.
However, this is incredibly dangerous. Addiction can cause serious harm to your life, severing relationships with loved ones, damaging your work life, and causing severe effects on your physical and mental health.
Prolonging an addiction over time can also bring about new, more serious mental health problems as well as aggravate previous ones.
Furthermore, as your tolerance grows, you become numb to the effects of drugs and alcohol. Many find themselves taking more and more each day, which can lead to accidental overdoses or toxic consumption that can lead to hospitalisation.
With all of this in mind, we always recommend that the first thing you do to prevent this from happening is to confide in a loved one.
Telling someone you trust helps to take the burden off of yourself, it also allows the other person to offer a shoulder of help so that together, you can consider contacting us where we’ll do the best we possibly can to set you on the right track to recovery.
We are a referral service. We work hard to ensure all of the patients who come to us seeking to better themselves receives the best help we can offer them.
We have a wide range of contacts across South Holland that allows us to get in contact with many different centres.
We’re able to communicate freely with them, ensuring that you’ll be placed in a centre best suited for you and that you’ll feel comfortable and secure in.
We also understand how the whole process works, so we know how important it is that you’re placed somewhere that is the most suitable for you.
In order to do this, we’ll complete assessments over the phone so that we can better get to know you, and allow you the space to be as open as you’d like about your addiction.
We’ll then take this information and recommend different centres around South Holland. Once we’ve established one that we can both agree will be best for you, we’ll get started on contacting the centre.
Rehab 4 Addiction and a centre in South Holland will work together with professionals to curate a treatment programme just for you. We’ll use the information you told us to figure out things such as which type of holistic therapy will serve you best, etc…
We will always recommend that you remain local within your city or town. This is because staying only a few miles away from your home helps with the transition of rehab, it makes the initial process feel far less extreme.
You’ll also feel better knowing that your loved ones won’t be too far away. They’ll be able to come in for tea and a chat every now and then and offer you their loving support.
If it’s something you’d like as well, they’ll be encouraged to be more involved in your healing process too. They can attend family therapy sessions and support your psychological healing.
Once you’ve been discharged from your clinic, you’ll also be offered aftercare. This is another reason why it’s important that you’re localised.
We’ll be able to place you in support groups in South Holland and offer ongoing care and regular check-ups to ensure that you’re settling in okay after rehab. Some people also often make friends in rehab, maintaining these friendships outside of the centre will encourage you to stay on the right track.
This is healthy, and in some cases, necessary, because once you leave, the control will have to be maintained independently through yourself with the help of those you trust.
Addiction likes to prey on mental health problems that you might have been struggling with pre-addiction, it also likes to create new problems that a therapist should help you work through.
As well as this, drugs and alcohol tends to eat away at your body, causing truly damaging side effects.
Because of this, we have to work to create treatments that will tackle both problems. Our centres are fully equipped with gyms and equipment that you can use to better your physical health, we’ll also have doctors onsite that can assess your body and prescribe medication for certain ailments.
The mental part of treatment, however, is slightly more complicated, and because of this, you may have to undergo multiple types of treatment at once.
For example, you might have to partake of group therapy, CBT, relapse prevention and a range of holistic methods.
With all of this combined, we should get you on the right track and provide you with the correct tools to remain sober long after you’ve left our care.
