Rehab 4 Addiction

One of the biggest challenges when battling addiction is knowing the kinds of treatment that will suit your needs best. There are so many options and different terminologies and new aspects of the process to learn, that many people become overwhelmed at first.

If you or a loved one are struggling with any kind of addiction, Rehab 4 Addiction will always be on hand to provide expert guidance (it’s even in our name!) . More details on specific kinds of help we provide are below, but if you contact us, we’ll be able to refer you to whatever kind of personalised treatment you need. All you need to do is reach out.

Short term vs long term healing

It may sound harsh, but it’s very likely that only short-term recovery will be possible if you attempt to go it alone. This may seem like positive progress at first, but without long term strategies it will probably fall through in the end. You need to lay the foundations for your recovery, or the metaphorical new house you’re trying to build for yourself will simply collapse.

It’s also not an easy road: you’ll need to put a lot in, in terms of both time and emotion to feel the full benefits. That’s something that you need to be prepared for. But if you’re willing to put all that in, then there’s no reason you can’t succeed in kicking your addiction to the kerb for good.

Finding the best treatment for you

Looking over all of the available treatment options, it could be very easy to become overwhelmed, especially when recovery from addiction is daunting enough. But when you start to work with Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll take a look at your specific circumstances and then refer you to whatever support would suit you best. More specifically, before you start any treatment will have a conversation with you about what you need and from there we’ll craft a treatment plan specifically designed for you.

Treatments on offer could include various kinds of therapy (holistic, talking, counselling) to help you work through the issues that may have led to your addiction in the first place as well as the addiction itself as well as workshops on issues like health and drugs/alcohol, so you can learn strategies to have a healthy life once you’ve finished your initial course of treatment.

In addition, a detox will likely be offered to you right away, so you can start off by getting rid of the substances causing it all.

This will be medically assisted and you’ll have lots of support – but we should also emphasize that trying to detox alone isn’t a good idea, for reasons ranging from sometimes deadly withdrawal symptoms to it being almost impossible to do it fully without help if you have a moderate to severe addiction.

Inpatient vs Outpatient treatment

Speaking of specifics, one of the biggest distinctions between different kinds of treatment is inpatient vs outpatient.

If you need to go away to an isolated environment with continual access to specialists? That’s inpatient treatment, which will most likely take place in residential rehab. If you can handle being at home and your addiction isn’t severe enough to need more intensive treatment like the kind you’d find in rehab? That’s outpatient treatment.

One isn’t inherently better than the other: it all just depends on the patient and what will work best for them.

Continued support

Even after you’ve passed the first hurdles of recovery, we have plenty of services available to help you stay safe from addiction in the long term, some of which we mentioned previously.

If you’re specifically looking at an alcohol rehab in Tottenham and across London, one of the most prominent forms of aftercare is our Alcoholics Anonymous groups, allowing you to get continued support from people going through the exact same things.

There are other similar support groups for alcohol and various other addictions – an added benefit is that it will allow you to share your feelings in a secure, private environment.

Our experts are also always on hand to talk through anything you may be struggling with, whether you’re just starting out on your journey or you’ve finished treatment and are looking for additional support.

And remember that if you’re ever struggling, you can always reach out to us. Call Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690 or fill in the enquiry form.
