How to find the right drug and alcohol rehab in South Molton for you

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we pride ourselves in our ability to tailor each and every treatment plan we create. When you get in touch with us, we’ll first establish the facts of your case in various ways.

If you call us, we’ll have a chat with you before we complete a formal assessment. If you contact us via our website, the conversation will also largely be the same, the only difference being the format.

Like everything else in this process, it’s also completely confidential.

Then, we’ll ask you to complete another formal assessment – through these two conversations, we’ll try to lay down the key facts vital to your treatment plan.

These are:

1. What you’re addicted to.

This is obviously one of the most important facts of your case, especially as different substances can have vastly different effects and can be addictive at different levels.

2. How long you’ve been suffering from addiction.

Addiction is a disorder that nearly always worsens with time. This is why it’s so important to access treatment as quickly as possible. And it’s also why we’ll need to know the timeline of your addiction early on in our discussions with you.

3. If anyone else knows about your addiction.

The kind of treatment you go through might also depend on the level of support you currently have. Furthermore, this could indicate what stage you’re at in terms of admitting to yourself and to others that you have a problem.

4. Your previous experience with treatment.

Finally, we also need to know your background in terms of treatment. If we have that context, we’ll then be able to figure out the best way forward for you.

The stages of rehab

Those initial planning stages will be the first steps on your journey. Now let’s look at what will likely follow that.

The first stage of treatment is detoxification, where the physical symptoms stopping you from healing are broken down.

If you’ve been suffering from addiction long enough, you’ll begin to experience withdrawal symptoms, which arise from dependence. These are highly unpleasant and can even become dangerous with certain substances

During the detox process, the worst withdrawal symptoms will be avoided by a slow reduction of your intake, usually lasting around 3 weeks give or take.

This is much safer than suddenly stopping on your own. In addition, professional treatment will give you access to the emotional support that you might not have received otherwise, during one of the hardest stages of the entire process.

The next stage is the one that can vary by quite a bit depending on your personal circumstances. But generally, at this point, you’ll encounter:

  • A variety of mental health treatments, including various kinds of therapy and counselling
  • More minor physical treatments like massages, reflexology and acupuncture
  • Support groups
  • Workshops

Remember to always research what the specific place you’re looking at offers, so you know the kinds of treatments you might encounter. Every organisation and centre is different!

The final stage is aftercare, where you’ll continue to access the same treatments as before in an at-home, localised context, while you readjust to post-rehab life.

What to do if someone you know might be suffering from addiction

It might be the hardest option. But honestly, the best thing you can do is talk to them. An open and honest conversation where you might be met with anger and denial rather than acceptance is at least better than hiding the issue away and not talking about it.

If it’s something you feel you need, Rehab 4 Addiction can also help with interventions.

Other frequently asked questions about drug and alcohol rehab in South Molton

Now we’ll discuss some Frequently Asked Questions about drug and alcohol rehab facilities located in South Molton.

1. How will I know if I really have an addiction?

There are a few defining traits and signs that could show you need help. The first one we’re going to discuss is the one that defines addiction: the inability to stop, in spite of all negative consequences. If you continually ignore all the hurt in your life caused by your continued use, then it’s very likely you have an addiction problem.

Secondly, there are a few physical signs too, like bloodshot eyes, an increased lack of regard for hygiene and an increased tolerance for the substances you’re taking (which could be a sign of developing dependence).

Finally, if you feel your commitment to activities you previously enjoyed decreased, if you’re becoming more secretive and/or paranoid, or if you’re having increasingly disrupted sleep patterns it might be time for you to reach out.

2. Do I have to go and stay somewhere to be treated?

Not necessarily. Some people benefit from the more intensive option of inpatient treatment, where you go to a residential centre. But others with less severe issues who don’t need to be treated on the same level might be recommended for at-home outpatient treatment.

3. Can I have visitors in residential rehab?

The exact guidance might depend on the place you go to, but a vast majority of residential treatment centres do allow for visitors.
