Rehab 4 Addiction

Admitting you be suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction can be extremely tough, and looking for a suitable rehab during this time can make it even more challenging. This is where Rehab 4 Addiction can help.

We understand how complicated healing from a drug and alcohol addiction can become, but we focus on making it easier for you, so you can concentrate on recovery, whilst we work on finding you a rehab.

We offer advice and give recommendations for every aspect of your treatment, and have thousands of rehab centres across the UK, including in Berkshire, that we can get you placed in as soon as possible.

Below are some frequently asked questions from our clients, but feel free to call us today on  0800 140 4690, for any other queries you may have.

How do I know I definitely need rehab?

Before starting this long journey to recovery, it is important to understand why exactly you are here, and what help you should seek out.

Fully knowing your own situation will help us to understand it better too, meaning we can help you receive the best care and treatment according to your needs.

You may still be in denial about the severity of your addiction, and this can be dangerous.

On the other hand, you may understand that your situation is serious, but believe that you can handle it on your own, or that it is not yet enough of a problem to warrant professional help.

A drug or alcohol abuse problem can spiral out of control sometimes quicker than you are able to comprehend, and it is common for factors that determine the seriousness of addiction to go unnoticed at first.

A few common signs and symptoms to look out for when determining the state of your addiction are:

  • Your physical appearance. Are you losing weight unexpectedly? Has your appearance changed drastically? Have there been any significant changes in your skin?
  • Your physical health. Have you been struggling more when performing any physical activity? Are you feeling nauseous or dizzy when you have withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time?
  • Your emotions. Are you more irritable, easily agitated or on edge than usual, especially when you’re away from the substance? Are you lashing out at loved ones for no reason?
  • Your social life/Your work life. Have you been avoiding responsibilities at work or social events you used to be fine with? Have there been any arguments with friends or family over your use of the substance? Are you hiding your substance use from loved ones?

If you can answer yes to any of the above questions, even if it is only to one or two, we suggest seeking help with Rehab 4 Addiction.

No matter what you believe about the severity of your condition, no matter if you are just beginning to notice any of these signs, a drug and alcohol rehab could still benefit you greatly. In fact, the earlier you decide to take action, the sooner and more successful your recovery will be.

How hard is recovery?

Once we have helped find you a suitable rehab, you will be on your way to recovery.

This journey to a life without drugs or alcohol is experienced differently be each patient, due to the fact that treatment is always designed with you in mind.

Because of this, we cannot say this time will be particularly easy for you, nor can we tell you just how hard it might be. Your experience with rehab and recovery will depend not just on what types of medication or specific treatments you receive, but also your response to each one method of treatment, and how determined you are to succeed.

However, there are a few things that we can guarantee will make your time recovering easier, like a local rehab. You can of course choose to visit a rehab further away from your home, but if you did decide on rehabilitation here in Thatcham, the transition from home to rehab and back would be much smoother.

Staying local can make your time in rehab easier as you are detached completely from your home environment, yet you remain somewhere familiar and comfortable to you. Also, when returning to life back in the real world, you won’t have long to travel if you need to visit us again for any additional treatment.

Coming to terms fully with your addiction can also make the recovery process a lot easier. Before admitting yourself to rehab, as mentioned above, you should be able to understand why it is you are seeking help, and shouldn’t be in denial about the severity of your addiction.

This is because when you understand yourself and your dependence clearly, you are more open to treatments we suggest for it.

What should I expect in rehab?

Again, much like we are unable to decidedly tell you how hard or easy a recovery will be, we can also not tell you exactly how your rehab experience will pan out.

What we can do, is lay out the general processes that most patients will go through, so you enter rehab less nervous about what lies ahead.

With our help, you will firstly secure a place at an appropriate rehab centre. This will be done by assessing your specific needs over the phone. This first step will be the easiest for you, as we do all the hard work of finding a rehab and getting you there as soon as possible.

You will also be assessed a second time when you arrive at your rehab, to further determine the state of your mental and physical health.

As you begin your residential programme, you will most likely go through a detox to rid your body of the substances you have used. You will be prescribed any medication you may need for withdrawal symptoms by one of our doctors.

Throughout your stay, you will participate in a number of therapies and counselling sessions, whether in groups or on a one-to-one basis. These forms of treatment will vary based on the assessments you went through at the beginning of the programme, and may change depending on your progress and response to them.

At the end of your rehabilitation journey, you will eventually leave our care at the clinic. You will receive a detailed aftercare plan, allowing you to continue the improvement you will have made in rehab, back at home.

If you do ever need further support, you can contact our 24/7 helpline, or some patients will return weekly or monthly for further treatment or check-ins with our team.

To kickstart your recovery today, please call us on 0800 140 4690.
