Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug and Alcohol addiction is a disease that affects many people’s lives across the UK. Many people are living with undiagnosed mental illness after untreated addiction.

People feel afraid to reach out for treatment because they feel like they don’t need professional help, or they assume the cost of rehab puts it out of their price range.

At Rehab 4 Addiction we don’t want any of these factors to stop you from reaching out for our support. We’re here to help you find accessible and worthwhile treatment at a clinic in Thetford and across Norfolk.

We believe our clinics are crucial to long-term recovery and are invaluable if you want to stop your addiction, today. If you’re suffering, you must reach out before it’s too late.

We want you to live a longer and happier life but can only help you if you get in touch by giving us a call on 0800 140 4690. We can stand by you every step of the way and can assist in finding you a suitable treatment centre in Thetford.

Do I need to go to rehab?

Many signs point towards needing to attend rehab. If you are worried that you, a friend, or a loved one may need to go to rehab have a look through our list of key symptoms below.

A change in physical appearance can indicate addiction and the need for help, look out for:

  • Rapid weight gain or weight loss
  • Changes in appetite, wanting to eat more could indicate cannabis use or a loss of appetite could indicate cocaine use
  • Less effort in personal appearance or poor hygiene

A person’s psychological state can change too so look out for:

  • Feelings of tiredness and deflation with the inability to hold a conversation
  • Feeling extremely anxious and worried at all times
  • Irritability and issues with temper which can also present as mood changes
  • A lack of concentration and defensiveness when asked a simple question

There are many factors that can indicate someone needs assistance or support from a rehab clinic. A person’s behaviour can change too:

  • They can tell frequent lies and become dishonest about their location or where they’ve been spending their money
  • They may become unreliable and not attend events they’ve promised to attend
  • They may appear to become avoidant and paranoid if they are in legal trouble

If you are worried about yourself or know someone who presents multiple symptoms from the above list, don’t hesitate and contact us today. It is very likely an addiction is present so let us help you.

Perhaps you’re reaching out to us over the concern of a loved one. You may believe an intervention is needed to secure their safety. Watching someone you love struggle with addiction can be one of the hardest things to witness, especially if you’ve tried to seek help for them in the past.

Do not blame yourself as there are still many ways you can offer support to your loved one and you are most probably already doing everything you can to see them fit and well again.

At Rehab 4 Addiction we are also here to offer support to you. We know that addiction can be cruel and leave so many people feeling disheartened, not just the addicted person.

Many of our treatment programmes allow us to offer family therapy meaning we can support you and your loved one during this difficult time.

I’m scared I’ll relapse; will this happen?

You will never be expected to go through any of this on your own. Anxiety around relapse is almost inevitable and can present around any type of recovery.

It is normal to feel like this, but rest assured you have our support as well as the many trained staff who can help you manage your feelings.

Once you have finished treatment you are expected to remain in contact with our staff to ensure your safety. We will still offer you therapy on an outpatient basis and ask that you keep in touch with us so we can monitor your wellbeing and health.

Whilst it is certainly the right mindset to enter recovery feeling optimistic, the temptation may always be there. It is how you manage these cravings that will help you on your path to a life free from substance use.

Relapses can happen, and if they do, we just ask that you remain honest with us about what led you to re-use your chosen substance. We can help you through this so don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to admit that you may need help again.

During your treatment, we offer one-to-one counselling sessions to equip you with the tools to resist the need for drugs or alcohol should the temptation arise. If, after treatment, you feel that you may relapse you are advised to call us immediately and this may result in your re-admittance to one of our facilities.

In recovery, relapses can happen. Please don’t let shame or embarrassment stop you from coming to us with the truth surrounding your substance use. We’re here for you.

Can Rehab 4 Addiction help me today?

Our team can help you immediately as soon as you make that call. Whilst our main referral is to residential rehab a quick chat on the phone can help us evaluate what type of treatment you may need.

We understand that your initial phone call may be the first time you’ve spoken openly about your addiction. This is daunting and you may be left feeling vulnerable and scared. We promise to take into consideration all that is said during our call and find you appropriate treatment in the Thetford area that suits you as an individual.

If you feel ready to reach out, call us on 0800 140 4690. Alternatively, fill out an enquiry form detailing whatever issues you may have surrounding addiction and one of our helpful team members will be back in touch immediately.
