Rehab 4 Addiction

If you live in Tyne and Wear and suffer from an addiction to drugs and alcohol then you really are in the right place. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we have in place an extensive network of residential and outpatient treatment providers in Tyne and Wear.

All you must do to access one of these treatment providers is to contact us today on 0800 140 4690.

When you call, we carry out a quick assessment, so expect to be on the phone for at least ten minutes. This assessment helps us recommend an effective way forward in terms of treatment options in Tyne and Wear.

The need for motivation

Before you attend a rehab facility in Tyne and Wear, you must be committed to your recovery goals. There is no point in investing time in any treatment programme if you are not willing to change. Generally, you must be committed to abstinence. This means you will attempt to live the rest of your life without ever again taking drugs or alcohol.

When we carry out the free telephone assessment, we seek to determine your level of commitment to your recovery. If we are utterly satisfied that you are willing to change, we will outline your various treatment options in Tyne and Wear.

About treatment options we recommend

All treatment options we recommend seeking to re-write and erase negative thoughts and feelings that cause you to resort to drug and alcohol consumption. Staying in recovery means you must work on your happiness.

The treatment we recommend assists you to develop your life around activities that allow you to avoid negative thoughts and emotions so that relapse does not occur.

The need for detoxification

In reality, the majority of people seeking out addiction treatment in Tyne and Wear will initially require a detoxification programme. This is particularly true for drugs that are physically addictive. This includes addiction to alcohol, heroin and benzodiazepines.

Physically addictive drugs cause withdrawal symptoms during the detox programme. It’s essential for patients to receive care and attention to ensure fatal withdrawal symptoms are not left untreated. Generally, patients will be given anti-withdrawal medications that help to offset these symptoms.

Extended aftercare programme

To assist you in recovery, all treatment options we recommend in Tyne and Wear offer you an extended aftercare programme. There is little point in gaining your recovery goal if you relapse within the first few weeks or months upon reaching this goal.

Aftercare sessions typically take place on a bi-weekly basis. You simply attend the rehab clinic in Tyne and Wear where you undertook your residential treatment.

We also help you to integrate into mutual support meetings in Tyne and Wear. These groups are facilitated by either SMART Recovery or Alcoholics Anonymous. Attending mutual support groups on an ongoing basis helps to strengthen your resolve to remain in recovery.

Contact us for help

If you have decided to change and take back control of your life, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.

We are utterly committed to helping you navigate your life away from drugs and alcohol and into recovery. We will arm you with a torrent of information on treatment options that exist in Tyne and Wear.
