Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Stratton

Are you noticing the signs of a drug or alcohol addiction in a loved one? A colleague at work? Or even in yourself? If you are concerned about your or a loved ones use of substances and wish to do something about it, Rehab 4 Addiction can help.

It is common that those dealing with substance or behavioural addictions will deny that they are in fact experiencing one, and even if they do admit it, they often deny their usually obvious need for help.

Whilst it is true that it is possible to control symptoms of an addiction, this is only the case for a select few individuals who are experiencing much less severe addictions, or using lower-class drugs.

Most of the time addictions can be unpredictable, debilitating, and overwhelmingly stressful to cope with alone. But the good news is that no one has to go it alone with Rehab 4 Addiction.

If this sounds like someone you know – or if it sounds like your own personal experience – please call us today on 0800 140 4690, or fill in our online form.

We not only offer advice and referrals to rehab for those dealing with addictions, but also general support and information for loved ones of those suffering, and also professional intervention services for those that refuse to seek help themselves.

Will rehab work for me?

Yes! Rehabilitation can work for anybody and has proven itself in the past to be the most effective form of addiction treatment for those battling drug or alcohol addictions.

However, there are some things you can do to ensure that you get the most you can from your rehabilitation programme.

Rehab is no spa treatment and does require effort and dedication from you in order to reach its full potential, so you should be prepared to put in the work if a drug and alcohol rehab in Stratton is to work for you.

We suggest mentally preparing yourself for the difficult journey that lies ahead, by getting ready to participate in treatment and speak up about your situation when it comes to therapy and counselling.

Of course, there will always be members of your chosen rehab’s team on hand to support and guide you throughout your rehab journey, but the bulk of responsibility will be on you – they are simply there to point you in the right direction and monitor your progress.

You should also try to not focus on the ‘finish line’ of rehab, but rather the recovery journey as a whole.

Trying to rush through treatment or leave rehab earlier than the average time can actually have an adverse effect, meaning you end up needing more time in rehab to make up for the time wasted.

Try to concentrate on the improvement you will undoubtedly make during your stay, as seeing your progress can spur you on to continue and see even more desired results.

We also suggest taking care of things at home that may infringe on your time in rehab.

This can mean setting up automatic payments for bills that will need to be paid in your absence, sending pets to be looked after elsewhere, asking loved ones to visit your home to clean or simply check-in, and ensuring that your employer is aware of your current situation.

Being able to relax and not have to think about the stresses of your life back home can greatly impact your rehab journey, and allows you to instead set your mind firmly on treatment and getting better.

Having a job to return to can aid your motivation to recover, and so can making sure that your general life is also intact and waiting for you to go back.

There is no shame

We’ve been there before. Many members here at Rehab 4 Addiction have experienced some form of addiction in the past, and are now living proudly in recovery, dedicating their lives to help others in similar situations.

We are living, breathing proof that recovery is possible no matter what, and that reaching out for professional help does work.

Of course, because we have been where you are now, we also understand that doing so is easier said than done.

There is an unnecessary stigma that surrounds addiction, rehab and recovery, which clouds many individuals’ view of the benefits of seeking medical help.

The truth is, though it may not feel like it at first, there is no shame in experiencing addiction or requiring help to get through one.

These feelings of embarrassment often stem from the many inaccurate and stereotypical portrayals of addiction shown on screen and online, which over the years have severely influenced the general public’s judgement towards those battling addiction, especially substance addictions.

We know just how difficult it is to deal with this judgement, and it is why we ensure that Rehab 4 Addiction is and always will be a safe space for those dealing with drug or alcohol addictions.

Our friendly admissions team are on hand 24/7 to help you throughout your enquiry and will answer any questions you may have and offer support and advice to yourself and your loved ones during the admission and rehabilitation process.

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when discussing details of yourself and your addiction, or other topics that may usually be considered ‘taboo’ to talk about, such as financial concerns or side effects of addiction that are rarely mentioned.

There is no need to feel ashamed of yourself or your addiction here, so don’t wait to reach out to us today on 0800 140 4690, or via our online form.
