We know that the journey to sobriety is a long and difficult one. That in order to achieve your goal of a drug and alcohol-free life, you must be willing to make lasting changes to positively affect your physical and mental health.

We understand that it is difficult to ask for help to make these changes. That admitting to yourself and others that you have a substance dependency is never easy. But at Rehab 4 Addiction we aim to make the process of finding the perfect rehabilitation centre as easy on you as possible.

We focus on finding the centre while you just have to focus on your recovery.

The first step is to call: 0800 140 4690 for a free assessment of your needs.

Finding help in Three Rivers

Over recent years there has been a rise in those seeking help for substance abuse. This is largely thanks to the de-stigmatisation surrounding seeking professional help and more rehabilitation centres being available around the country.

Unfortunately, there are still people who do not get help and will succumb to an overdose or believing they can do it alone will attempt to go cold turkey. A non medically supervised detox will sadly cost many people their lives.

Now more than ever it is important to remember you are not alone. Trying to tough it out and get healthy by yourself is not only much harder and unnecessary but also incredibly dangerous. The best thing you can do is take the process one step at a time within the safety of a rehabilitation centre.

In Three Rivers there are plenty of professional and private rehabilitation centres to choose from. They provide a discrete and personalised recovery programme that will aim to help you through a safe detox and improve your mental health.

This is to minimise the likelihood of giving into cravings once you have left the centre and returned to everyday life.

The treatments

Alcohol or drug dependency is a chronic condition that changes the brain’s chemistry and causes a person suffering to view the substance as a healthy brain would view food or water.

The danger is that substance abuse replaces the brain’s craving for nutrients with the substance itself. Rehabilitation centres are able to offer balanced diets, designed to combat the malnutrition that sadly many who are substance dependent suffer from.

Every individual’s situation is unique and we can offer hands-on help. We can ensure that you are referred to a rehabilitation centre that can handle your needs and help with your recovery.

Once an assessment has taken place and a referral has been made you are able to move forwards with your recovery journey. While every rehabilitation centre is different there are some basics that can be expected within each one.

No matter what you can expect good quality service, dedicated staff and assurance from us that you are in the right place for your recovery.

Step 1: Detox

Most people suffering from substance abuse will require some form of detox. This is to flush the substance out of your body, this is done with medical supervision as attempting to detox on your own is incredibly dangerous.

Medically trained staff provide 24-hour detox supervision and are able to provide relief should withdrawals prove too intense. Depending on the severity of your dependence medication may be recommended to aid in the process.

This is to lessen the impact the detoxification process has on the body. Medications such as Disulfiram (Antabuse), Acamprosate (Campral), Buprenorphine, Methadone and Naltrexone are able to lessen cravings and make the process much easier.

Through this process, the aim is to wean your body off its dependency and allow you to move forward with the programme substance-free. This allows you to focus on improving your mental health while the staff improves your physical health.

Step 2: Therapy

Along with getting you clean, the aim of a rehabilitation centre is to get to the root of why you are substance reliant. Through group therapy sessions you will be able to work towards improving your mental health and understand what triggers your substance abuse.

You will be supported by fully trained professionals and those going through similar experiences as you. You will be able to help others the same way they are helping you and together you can work towards getting clean.

Within these sessions, you will be taught strategies to deal with your triggers and cravings. This is so that following your stay at the rehabilitation centre, you will have the tools to avoid a relapse and continue on with your recovery on your own.

Step 3: After rehab

Many worry about what will happen when they have worked through the rehabilitation programme. They worry that when they are no longer being monitored and supported 24/7, they will relapse and fall back into bad habits.

However, many referral services include support groups for when you are ready to leave the centre. This will give you a support network similar to group therapy and most importantly accountability.

With accountability and the tools, you have learnt in the rehabilitation centre you should be able to avoid cravings and live a healthier and happier life. Centres offer aftercare and personalised plans to make a lifestyle change that will allow you to see a life drug and alcohol-free.
