Rehab 4 Addiction

If you or a loved one are coming to terms with the possibility of an addiction affecting your life, you may now be wondering what your next action should be.

Admitting you may have a problem with drugs or alcohol is the first hurdle among many, but the good news is there are a number of options available to you now that you have taken this brave step.

Whilst many try to recover from drug and alcohol misuse alone in their home environment, we at Rehab 4 Addiction almost always recommend residential rehab to patients with addictions, as this option offers many benefits that quitting alone just does not.

If you wish to know more about drug and alcohol rehab, and how we can help with your recovery, please do not hesitate to call us today on 0800 140 4690.

Withdrawing from drugs and alcohol alone

As mentioned before, many people suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction attempt to withdraw from the substances alone.

We understand that sometimes this may feel like the best or safest option, and it does come with some desirable aspects such as complete privacy, comfort, convenience and no fees attached. However, detoxing yourself and attempting to stay sober whilst being alone can be dangerous, and often plain unproductive.

Classed as an illness of the brain, drug and alcohol abuse or addiction is an extremely difficult one to fix alone. Just as you would not expect to heal a broken leg yourself at home, you should not expect a miracle cure for this illness to be found without help from a professional source.

There are many layers to a drug and alcohol abuse problem. Is it abuse or addiction? How long has this been happening? What substances are involved? What is the mental and physical state of the individual? How old are they? How willing are they to change their habits?

Only professional intervention can ensure all these complex layers are understood and given the right amount of attention so that a full recovery is achieved.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, but alone you are limited to what options you can choose from. Within a rehab facility you don’t have those limitations holding your recovery back, and can be treated correctly with your personal needs in mind.

How rehab can help

There are many advantages to choosing to begin your road to recovery in a rehabilitation centre with Rehab 4 Addiction, rather than at home.

  • We can help you get assessed properly and quickly, and we gather all the necessary data from two short assessments to personalise your treatment to you and only you. This ensures you are receiving the finest and most appropriate care that focuses on what you require the most.
  • We also take into account not only your physical condition or the severity of addiction, but also your personal preferences, too. Do you prefer counselling in groups, or in one-to-one sessions? Do you have any special requests? We will of course give professional recommendations on services and treatments throughout your stay, but you are free to make decisions about your recovery for yourself.
  • We provide effective treatments for both the body and the brain, and can guarantee that all will be carried out safely by trained professionals. We also monitor your progress throughout your stay, and adapt treatments as we go to your specific needs.
  • Most importantly, we are a judgement-free zone, where you won’t be made to feel ashamed or embarrassed because of your addiction. Many of our staff have been in situations similar to yours in the past, so they understand and are sure to support you through this difficult phase with compassion and grace.

All this under one roof promises a speedy and successful recovery.

What treatment will I need?

Any treatment you receive will depend entirely on you. Through two assessments – one over the phone and one with a doctor once you are admitted into rehab – we learn more about you and your addiction. This helps us not only refer you to the right drug and alcohol rehab, but also create a treatment plan catered to you.

Some possible methods of treatment include: Detoxing, addiction counselling, intervention, ‘acceptance and commitment’ therapy, art therapy, family therapy, equine therapy, motivational interviewing, Naltrexone implants, the Sinclair method, DBT, and CBT.

What you receive as treatment will vary based on many factors, all of which will be discussed with you before your admission into a rehab facility.

What happens after rehab?

After leaving our care at your local rehab in Manchester, including Stretford, you will now bear the responsibility to continue your treatment. Even though usually most rehabilitations last for around 28 days or so, the few weeks or months after this time are also crucial to your recovery.

In order to maintain the improvement you will have made in rehab, it is essential you stay away from any possible triggers in your home environment that could lead you to start abusing drink or drugs once more.

This challenge may be daunting, and you might feel as if it is impossible, but at Rehab 4 addiction we make sure that you never leave our care without being ready to do so.

During your time in rehab, we provide you with all the necessary knowledge and patience you will need to face the real world again. As we help you unlearn old, unhealthy habits, we also create new, healthier ones with you, so that you no longer feel the need to reach for drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism.

Although, if you do ever need our support after you’ve left rehab, we have a 24/7 helpline ready and waiting to assist you.

We understand this is a lot of information to take in all at once. If you have any more queries about quitting drugs or alcohol alone versus in a rehab, or wish to make an enquiry for yourself to begin your recovery, give us a call on 0800 140 4690.
