Getting help in Sussex

Rehab 4 Addiction offers drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex. We offer drug and alcohol addiction intervention meetings with family members concerned. Drug and alcohol rehabs in Sussex employ highly skilled medical professionals including doctors, psychiatric nurses, therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists and counsellors.

Drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex is residential in nature meaning you live in the rehab clinic for around 10 days to 28 days. We work with Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery in the Sussex area. Such groups support you once you leave the rehab clinic and return home.

We treat a range of substance and behavioural addictions in the Sussex area. We treat patients with severe to mild conditions of addiction.

Before patients are admitted into a rehabilitation centre they must first undergo a thorough assessment from a clinical psychiatrist. This ensures treatment is tailored in meeting patients’ needs.

A ‘personalised care plan’ is drawn up and implemented during the course of the rehab treatment programme.

Why drug and alcohol addiction is an illness

One of the biggest misconceptions regarding drug abuse is that people become addicts due to a lack of will power, strength or morals. Many are ignorant enough to believe that the quitting process for a user is simple, and chastise them for not doing so.

This view is wrong because drug addiction is an illness which requires medical assistance and professional treatment.

The complex reaction by the brain to the drug is what makes addiction so easy to fall into and so difficult to recover from. Most drugs overwhelm the brain with the concept of a ‘reward pathway’ – brought on by a potent release of Dopamine.

Dopamine is responsible for controlling the body’s ability to feel pleasure; urging a person to repeat the behaviour needed to bring about this emotion.

The more the drug is consumed, the less the brain produces excess Dopamine; this process is known as developing a ‘tolerance’ – causing users to ingest more of the drug in the attempt to reconstruct the initial high.

When you attend drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex, you will attend workshops that will help you better understand why your addiction is an illness. You will also be armed with techniques to help you control your illness using effective behavioural techniques.

Why are drug and addiction so common?

External factors are key to understanding addiction; many fall into these addictive patterns because they are psychologically vulnerable. Others use drugs as a distraction or for social means. Whatever the reason, drug and alcohol abuse is widespread and should be regarded as an illness. It is only within this context that society can understand and seek to help those that are suffering.

Why do some develop an addiction and others don’t?

No one can predict who will become addicted. There are several factors which might offer some insight into who may be at a greater risk. Some of those include:

  • Genetics
  • Environmental factors
  • Age and social development

As with most things, behaviour is largely a function of environment and genetics. Those that are susceptible to addiction due to genetics factors may require shorter exposure to lead to addiction problems.

There is no absolute cure for addiction; much like heart diseases and diabetes, drug addiction is treatable and can be managed. The key to recovery is to reach out for professional help. Combining a strong support network and the right course of treatment makes recovery possible.

It is also about being in the right place to want help. It is incredibly difficult to stop someone using drugs, alcohol, or acting out any other addiction if they don’t want to stop; some would say impossible. Many believe that they cannot beat their addiction, and so will never try unless supported and encouraged by those that are close to them.

Drug and alcohol abuse is not a choice. Few people consciously sit down and decide to become addicts. It is a trap that people fall into when they let their guard down, and the psychological dependence that ensures create a new homeostatic norm that becomes their cage. Attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex is a highly effective way to release yourself from this cage.

A timeline of drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex

A typical timeline of drug and alcohol rehab in Sussex include:

  • Assessment (one day)
  • Detoxification (five to fifteen days)
  • Counselling and therapy (five to ten days)
  • Aftercare planning (two to three days)
  • Aftercare and extended care (up to 12 months)

The duration of treatment is dictated by the severity and nature of addiction. Treatment for alcohol and opiate-based drug addictions typically take longer than treatment for cocaine and cannabis addiction.

Residential drug and alcohol rehab services

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we strongly recommend that you choose residential rehab services. Living within a clinic during your treatment programme means that you will be completely removed from temptation, allowing you to focus on quitting drink and drugs for good.

Plus, because you’ll receive 24/7 care and support from a team of qualified and experienced medical professionals, including psychiatrists and psychotherapists, you’re much more likely to make a full recovery.

Addiction aftercare in Sussex

Once you leave the care of the team at the Sussex drug and alcohol rehabs, you’ll continue to participate in group therapy sessions on an outpatient basis.

Attending these sessions will make it much less likely that you’ll relapse once you return to your familiar surroundings, helping you remain clean and sober for good.

Winning the battle with drink and drugs is tough, but with the help of an experienced team of addiction experts, you stand an excellent chance. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we can provide you with further information about addiction aftercare in Sussex.
