Rehab 4 Addiction

Are you living in Sutton Coldfield and suffering from a drug or alcohol problem? If so, you may struggle to understand the various addiction treatment options that are available both in the local area and across the West Midlands region.

Thankfully, Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help. When you contact our free helpline, we conduct a short but important telephone assessment.

During this assessment, we ask a number of questions relating to your health, your addiction and your personal situation.

The answers you provide all our helpline counsellors to signpost you to suitable drug and alcohol rehab providers within the Sutton Coldfield area.

If you are like most people suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it’s likely you will experience denial. If you are in denial about your addiction, or if you are unsure if you truly are addicted to drugs or alcohol, get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction today.

Our goal is to assist you in helping you determine whether or not you suffer from an addiction to drugs or alcohol. To meet this aim, we conduct an initial questionnaire that’s specifically designed to help us diagnose addiction.

We also offer telephone and in-person intervention sessions. These sessions are particularly useful if you are the loved one of an addict and your loved one is in total denial about his or her addiction.

Above all, know that all of our helpline counsellors are people who have experienced addiction first hand. All of our counsellors have defeated either drug or alcohol addiction.

This means we know what you are going through when you reach of for help.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we have experienced the stigma and negative judgement others have branded us with due to addiction.

When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we will handle your enquiry with the compassion and empathy you require to succeed in your recovery.

Treatment types in Sutton Coldfield

Once you have completed the telephone assessment, we will then go about recommending suitable treatment providers in Sutton Coldfield. Addiction is an illness of the mind.

This means it’s essential for you to attend a treatment provider that offers intensive therapy sessions.

Therapy sessions aim to address the emotional causes of addiction. These emotional causes may require intensive inpatient rehabilitation in order to overcome.

If you suffer from depression or anxiety disorder, we generally recommend you undertake treatment at a residential rehab. Why? Because the intensity of treatment is sufficiently great to help you overcome these mental health issues.

If these mental health issues are not treated, you are unlikely to stop taking drugs or alcohol. This is because you are probably self-medicating with drugs or alcohol in order to reduce these underlying mental health problems.

Residential treatment usually couples therapy with detoxification. Detoxification, or ‘detox’ for short, is a medical procedure where you are given medications to help reduce otherwise painful withdrawal symptoms.

In some instances, these withdrawal symptoms may be life-threatening if not sufficiently treated. During your detox programme, you will also benefit from 24/7 medical aid by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. These professionals consist of doctors, nurses, therapists and support workers.

A detox programme will run for around 7 days. During this time, you will also attend therapy sessions. However, towards the conclusion of your detox, the number of therapy sessions you attend each day will increase.

You will begin to regain your physical strength due to the detox process. Therapy sessions will also act to raise your mental strength.

A full residential rehab requires around 4-6 weeks to complete. Following the completion of your detox, you will benefit from a highly intensive schedule of daily therapy sessions.

These sessions implement therapy techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and mindfulness. Towards the conclusion of your rehab in Sutton Coldfield, the clinic will put in place a discharge plan.

This plan will include aftercare sessions. You begin to attend aftercare therapy sessions once you have left the rehab clinic.

These sessions typically run over the weekend for around 2-3 hours per session.

How does Rehab 4 Addiction assist?

Rehab 4 Addiction is essentially a free signposting service. When you contact us, we conduct a short assessment and passed on the answers you provide, you then go about recommending treatment providers in your local area that are well-matched to your needs.

Many people new to addiction treatment may be unsure where to turn. Furthermore, the variety of treatment options may leave you overwhelmed. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we aim to educate you on the various types of addiction treatment open to you in Sutton Coldfield.

This free service we offer helps you locate treatment providers that are highly affordable. We also recommend statutory and charity-run treatment that may be totally free of charge.

What are the drawbacks of addiction treatment in Sutton Coldfield?

Due to the broad differences between certain treatment types, there is every risk you could choose a treatment provider that’s poorly suited to your needs.

If this is the case, you could waste your time and money. More worryingly, if you choose a poorly suited treatment provider, there is a high risk that you could relapse following the conclusion of treatment.

To avoid these risks, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.
