The first step to recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is to admit that there is a problem and to commit to changing for the better. You should understand that, although your recovery and rehabilitation will not be easy, it will absolutely be worthwhile.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we act as a specialist referral service, helping you get the help that you need. This could involve counselling, detox, residential rehab, or likely all of the above.
We are here to help you find the help that you need to start a new life. All we require from you is you approach the process with an acceptance and acknowledgment of your addiction, and a commitment to change for the better.
It would be nice to imagine that there is an on/off switch for our addiction, or any kind of mental health problem – that we could wake up one day and be free from the disease.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. Recovery from addiction is a long process, that will take a lot of hard work and dedication, on an ongoing basis.
As challenging as the road ahead may be – a life stuck in drug and alcohol addiction, and all the destructive behaviours that come with that lifestyle.
Think of your time in rehab and recovery as an investment in yourself, the payoff for which is a healthy, happy life, free from the misery alcohol and drug abuse.
Upon arrival at rehab, a trained professional will help you put together a treatment plan that is right and appropriate for you. This will take into account the severity of your addiction, your triggers, and any other underlying issues or life circumstances that you may have.
Once this has been established, you will experience a number of different types of therapy throughout your stay – this could be anything from one-to-one counselling, group therapy, and cognitive or dialectical behavioural therapies. It is likely that it will involve a combination of some or all of the above.
You will likely find that this new sense of structure and purpose will be very helpful in your recovery. The idea is that through therapy, education, and counselling, you will gain a new perspective on your addiction, and feel empowered to recover.
As a referral service, it is our job to match you with an appropriate rehab facility, many of which are in the Stourbridge area. All you have to do to begin with is call us confidentially.
From there, we will conduct an an assessment with you to identify what your needs are in terms of recovery, and refer you to a facility based upon that information. We recognise that there may be other factors at play, such as timeframe and costing – we are happy to discuss these issues with you, always with full transparency.
As mentioned above, the specific treatment plan of an individual patient varies, depending on any number of personal factors. However, the end goal of each treatment plan is the same – to give you the tools and knowledge that you need to recover.
It is important to bear in mind that, throughout the rehab process, your recovery will be both psychological and physiological. It is likely that the first step will be a detox, to rid your body of any substances that have caused you problems.
In every treatment facility, detox will be carried out under the supervision of a medical professional, which is vital – detoxing alone, without medical supervision, can often be fatal.
Once you have completed your detox procedure, you will undergo a series of different therapies such as CBT, group therapy, and counselling. You stay also may involve holistic therapies such as mindfulness meditation, hypnotherapy, and yoga.
Whatever treatments you undertake, it is vital that you try your best to approach each session with an open mind, and an acceptance of the idea that the therapy could help you.
There are a number of different options for people going through drug and alcohol recovery, and residential rehab isn’t always the appropriate path. However, for many struggling with addiction, a private rehab facility is the best option, for a number of reasons. Firstly, it provides us with respite from circumstances in our own lives that may be harmful, such as a detrimental living situation, a stressful environment, or a toxic partner.
Rehab facilities also have a number of expert professionals on-site to guide you through your issues, help you understand addiction better, and to aid you in times of acute stress. There is nowhere else that you would get all of these resources under one roof.
Although rehab is often the most intensive stage of recovery, it’s important to remember that recovery is a lifelong commitment, and we need to be proactive in maintaining our own wellbeing after leaving rehab. This is why, upon leaving rehab, you will put together a relapse prevention plan, with the help of a trained advisor.
This plan will help you be mindful of your addiction, your triggers, and provide further advice on how to avoid falling back into addiction. It may be that the plan forces you to make some difficult choices, such as cutting ties with an old friend if they are someone who is likely to increase your chances of relapse.
Although these new lifestyle choices may be tough to make, they are an absolutely essential part of staying in recovery. Call us confidentially today on 0800 140 4690 to speak to an advisor and find a rehab facility in the Stourbridge area in the West Midlands.
