Noticing you may have an alcohol or substance problem can feel demoralising. Understanding the difference between abusing, misusing or being addicted to a particular substance can also be confusing and sometimes hard to notice.
There may have been many moments where you have tried to stop taking but find yourself struggling to function without them. At Rehab 4 Addiction we want to help you understand your problems, get to the bottom of what perpetuates the behaviours and how we can resolve them.
Uncovering an addiction can be scary and that is why we provide professional support to treat you in the best possible way.
Our drug & alcohol rehab in Southwick is available to people from all walks of life who may be suffering from a substance use disorder (SUD) or addiction. We’re here to help you every step of the way so that you can lead a healthier and brighter future.
So often people try to go ‘cold turkey’ alone, but without the assistance of qualified professionals, this route is a quick way to relapse.
Without the guidance of addiction specialists and staying in your normal surroundings, it enables relapse sooner and doesn’t solve the psychological side of the problem.
Simply not taking the substance is not a full recovery, this is only detoxification and the first step in the rehabilitation process. When you stop taking, withdrawal symptoms will occur, and you’ll become unwell.
This can be an arduous experience to deal with alone.
As you relieve your body from the substance, you’ll also notice trouble sleeping as insomnia can increase, and you’ll become irritable, anxious and depressed. You’ll also begin to experience headaches and fatigue.
This is due to your body being dependant on the drug and a sudden change in intake will shock your system and leave the body wanting more.
If you go through this experience alone, you’re more likely to relapse when you feel unable to cope with the different feelings and physical symptoms.
If you’re truly committed to recovery, detoxing in a safe environment such as our drug & alcohol rehab in Southwick is a more secure way to rid your body of the drug and sustain a long-lasting recovery.
You may have noticed physical or behavioural differences in a loved one close to you, and these may have occurred over a number of months or even years.
Although you may have chalked these down to work or home life pressures, it’s important to address them once you know the proper signs.
Some people can be ‘functioning addicts’ which means it’s possible the addiction has gone unnoticed by yourself, or even for them. This is very common with alcoholism and is enabled through our society’s attitude toward drinking.
If your partner is a functioning addict, you may not have noticed these differences in your daily life but maybe a friend or colleague had to point it out to you.
If you do suspect your partner or a family member has a problem with drugs or alcohol, we’re here for you. We can support you in supporting them.
Whether it’s yourself or your family member, we strongly advise that you do not attempt to recover alone but to seek professional help to receive a better understanding of your struggles and to secure a long-lasting recovery.
There are many ways in which a patient can experience rehabilitation. At Rehab 4 Addiction we pride ourselves on tailoring your experience in order to reach a full recovery with relapse prevention in mind.
We want to help you understand and eradicate the mental attachment to the drug so that you’re less likely to fall into old habits in the future.
We’ll tailor your programme based on a number of factors, the length of your addiction, the severity, the substance, your triggers and your preferences when it comes to therapy.
That way we can map out a plan that suits you and we can get to work in the best possible way to treat your individual addiction.
No addiction is the same. That means no recovery is either. However, addiction often comes hand in hand with mental health problems and that is why Rehab 4 Addiction in Southwick aims to treat the mind as well as the body.
Psychological support offered can include group support sessions, one on one counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to name a few. Cognitive behavioural therapy alone has been shown to achieve success after success for those suffering from drug or alcohol problems.
You’ll be encouraged to notice unwanted thought processes and behaviours and learn to curb them as they occur.
Understanding your triggers and key environments in which enable your addiction is imperative to creating a long-lasting recovery. Recognising the need to change and implementing those changes in the future is how you’ll learn to lead a better lifestyle.
At our drug & alcohol rehab in Southwick, you’ll also be invited to group therapy sessions where you’ll hear from others suffering from similar substance addictions. This is a great place to get to know each other and how specific addictions can be to the person.
Sharing your story and listening to others is a great way to understand more about yourself and how to release yourself from this affliction.
Group therapy sessions have also shown to be key indicators for successful long-term recovery as having that strongly bonded network of people both during and after rehabilitation means that you’ll have ongoing support.
Having people that understand what you’re going through and encourage you to continue on your journey is one of the most comforting ways to keep going.
At Rehab 4 Addiction aftercare is never an afterthought. Giving you the tools to lead a better lifestyle but leaving you on your own would be pointless.
That’s why we offer all of our patient’s tailored aftercare packages so that you can monitor your progress and feel secure you’re still on the right path.
