For any doubts you may still have about needing a drug and alcohol rehab, or how rehab could benefit you, some of our frequently asked questions are answered below.

Do I need to go to rehab?

Even if you believe you are coping with your drug or alcohol use on your own, or that it is not ‘bad enough’ to warrant admission into a rehab, we still recommend seeking medical and professional help. If left unchecked, an addiction can spiral out of control rapidly, and can cause long term effects on the body and brain.

You may think symptoms you are experiencing are normal or not enough proof of an addiction, but if you have noticed any of these signs in yourself, you could benefit from treatment regardless of the severity of your situation.

  3. You spend a lot of your time thinking about drugs or alcohol
  4. You find yourself unable to quit even when you really want to
  5. You become easily agitated, angry or on-edge when you are unable to drink or take drugs
  6. You are increasing the dosage of the drugs or alcohol each time you use them
  7. Physical symptoms
  • You are struggling to sleep
  • Your appetite is changing
  • Your physical appearance is changing (e.g. losing weight)
  • Your tolerance of drugs or alcohol is increasing
  • You experience flu-like withdrawal symptoms when you haven’t used a substance in a while
  1. Social symptoms
  • Your relationships with friends, family or partners has suffered because of drugs or alcohol
  • You have abandoned work, hobbies, or any other responsibilities because of drugs or alcohol
  • You are avoiding social situations

What are the advantages of visiting a drug and alcohol rehab in Stalybridge?

It may feel impossible, but with thousands of locations scattered all across the UK, Rehab 4 Addiction can work to find you the best possible rehab in Stalybridge, or even further afield if you wish.

Staying local however will mean a smoother transition from your home into a rehab, and will lead to the least amount of disruption in your life. You will still be removed from the home environment that may contain possible triggers for your drug and alcohol consumption, but will remain somewhere you are familiar with.

Visiting a rehab instead of attempting to withdraw from drugs or alcohol alone is more likely to get you on the road to recovery easier, safer, and sometimes even sooner.

All under the one roof you will receive around the clock care, personalised treatment tailored to you and your addiction, and multiple types of therapies and counselling. You will also be in the excellent company of our highly trained team of medical staff and therapists for the entirety of your stay.

Staying local with your rehab choice will also lead to more convenience when you eventually leave our care. When pursuing aftercare options or requiring any additional treatment at that time, it won’t be such a long journey. Aftercare is vital to ensure the improvement you will have made in rehab stays on track and a full recovery is achieved, and having this available locally could help significantly in the long run.

You may still have concerns about finding a drug and alcohol rehab in Manchester, but we can discuss any of these queries when assessing your situation, and get you placed in the rehab facility that will work best for you.

What happens in rehab?

Rehab experiences can differ slightly due to the nature of each individual’s situation and addiction.

However, the general process of recovery in a rehab will take around 28 days, and what you can typically expect of this time is set out below.

  1. Initial assessments

When you first call Rehab 4 Addiction, we may conduct a short assessment over the phone, discussing aspects of you and your addiction like your age, general health, the severity and length of your addiction and what substances you have used.

Upon admission into one of our rehab centres, you will meet a doctor who will perform a second, more in depth assessment. This will determine more about your physical and psychological health, and allow us to create your personal recovery plan.

  1. Detox

If you have already withdrawn from drugs and alcohol, you will be given medication to help ease the symptoms you may be experiencing. If not, you will be go through a detox at our facility, in order to fully flush the toxins from your bloodstream before starting with any further treatments.

  1. Therapies and treatments

During your stay you may attend a number of addiction counselling sessions, and therapies such as family therapy, equine therapy, art therapy, CBT, DBT, etc.

What you receive as treatment will fully depend on the two assessments we make at the beginning of your stay.

  1. Aftercare

Once your rehab draws to an end, you will be fully prepared for life back in the real world. You will receive some form of aftercare plan and may need to visit the rehab centre every week or so for further treatments, or to simply monitor how you are coping.
