Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in St Austell

Are you based in the St Austell area and find yourself suffering from the adverse effects of a drug and alcohol addiction?

Addiction is a huge problem right across the UK, which is sadly underfunded through public health services and further perpetuated by the fear of seeking professional addiction recovery treatment due to the stigma attached to drug and alcohol addiction in particular.

Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we have a deep understanding of the benefits of professional drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Many of our team are, themselves, in recovery, having overcome similar circumstances, and they now advocate for the provision of rehab to as many people as possible.

Our goal is to make local treatment available easily and quickly through our growing network of the trusted partner networks of leading rehab clinics.

If you’ve attempted and failed to recover in the past, don’t let that dissuade you. We have confidence in the holistic and structured treatment programmes used by our network of addiction treatment providers.

This is especially true if you’ve attempted to recover without the guidance and care of professionals. Whilst your intentions are honourable, independent detox is both dangerous and rarely successful, so we would highly discourage this method.

For advice, referral services or to find out what type of addiction treatment facilities are available in St Austell, contact our team now on 0800 140 4690 or via our web form, where you can speak to us 24 hours a day.

We’re ready to take your call and can assure you that all conversations are completely confidential.

Will I have to wait for treatment?

This depends on your choice of addiction treatment. Unfortunately, whilst there are elements of addiction treatment available on the NHS, these services are so overwhelmed with demand that the waiting lists are substantially long.

Whilst you might not see a problem with waiting, those on waiting lists frequently lose the motivation to recover as their addictions intensify.

As addiction is a progressive disease, it’s almost inevitable that your condition will deteriorate over time.

Aside from the potential to abandon your efforts and allowing your addiction the opportunity to take further hold, leaving an addiction untreated over time also provides the potential for further physical and mental health damage, not to mention the impact addiction can have on your relationships and finances over time.

The good news is, there are private drug and alcohol rehab facilities available in St Austell, meaning that through Rehab 4 Addiction, you will be able to access and begin your recovery treatment immediately.

The best time to treat addiction is as soon as you recognise that you have a problem and find the commitment to recover.

This reduces the potential for your illness to cause you further or lasting damage, as well as increasing the speed at which you will generally be able to make a recovery.

How will I find the right drug or alcohol rehab centre for me in St Austell?

Our goal is to help you source the right addiction treatment for your level of drug and alcohol addiction, in a rehab facility based locally in St Austell or wherever you would prefer to attend.

Our experience in this field means that through the use of a short assessment, we will be able to make recommendations for the best type of treatment for your particular addiction experience.

We will take into consideration a number of factors when making our recommendations, although those with long-established or more severe addictions will usually be encouraged to attend residential rehab.

The type, frequency and amount of substance(s) that you use, alongside your mental and physical state of health, your budget and your location preferences will all help us determine the best possible solution for your care.

How long is a typical residential rehab stay?

It’s difficult to predict the length of your residential rehab programme without having assessed you, as these are individually tailored to suit the needs of each attendee.

A typical stay is around 28 days, however, there are lots of factors that can influence this, for example, whether you have any comorbid health conditions, the severity of your addiction, and your own commitment to making a recovery.

Although residential rehab offers the absolute best chance of achieving long term sobriety for those with moderate to severe drug or alcohol addictions, it must be understood that there is no cure for addiction.

Addiction can not be cured if you have no desire to get better, as old habits will continue to return, regardless of how many times you get sober.

Long term recovery through rehab is certainly possible, but you will have to invest your own time and motivation in maintaining this.

Isn’t rehab just another word for detoxing?

Some addiction treatments will only include detox, and this is certainly available as a stand-alone addiction recovery treatment, however, residential rehab is a more holistic approach to addiction, which also acknowledges the psychological side of addiction.

Whilst detoxing to reach sobriety is certainly a great start to your recovery, without addressing the root cause of your addictive behaviour, it’s unlikely to be successful in the long term.

When you attend a residential rehab programme, your psychological treatment is equally as important as detox. You will have the opportunity to investigate your illness, what triggers your addictive behaviours and learn how to control these triggers.

It’s fairly common for existing mental health issues to either cause or exacerbate addictions, so specialist psychotherapists will work to diagnose these and ensure they are adequately addressed, both as a part of rehab, and beyond.

As well as one to one counselling sessions, you will have access to a range of treatments, according to your own bespoke plan, that will help you to unlearn addictive behaviours and develop coping mechanisms to maintain your sobriety.

These are usually treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational therapy and group therapy.

A full aftercare programme will also be provided by the same team who developed your residential rehab programme.

This will include regular appointments with the rehab team to monitor your continued motivation levels.

You will also be encouraged to attend St Austell based drug and alcohol abstinence groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
