Addiction is a horrible affliction that can turn healthy, fulfilling life into a miserable existence in a cycle of destructive behaviours. Nevertheless, there is always hope for recovery, if you are willing to fully commit.
If you are ready to seek help with addiction, your best course of action is to enrol at rehab, where you will be able to receive comprehensive treatment for every stage of recovery.
You will be able to detox, get the therapeutic help that you need, and prepare for your new life free from substance abuse once you leave.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a service that exists to get people who need help into a rehab facility that is the right fit for them.
We have established links with rehab facilities all over the country and can use that network to get you into rehab quickly. We start this process with an initial telephone conversation, once you call us on 0800 140 4690.
The purpose of this conversation is to find out more about you, and how addiction has affected your life. Once we have more information, we will be able to make a decision on where to refer you.
We currently only refer to private rehab institutions, meaning that wherever you go, it will incur a cost for the treatment you receive.
Rehab is affordable for people who are on an average salary, and is not just for the rich and famous, despite the images portrayed in the media. Still, the cost of rehab is a considerable investment.
We would encourage you to see this as an investment in your future self and in a better quality of life, free from the cycle of despair that is substance abuse and addiction.
Addiction is incredibly damaging on a personal level, as well as for families and communities. Still, for those who have fallen into a pattern of substance abuse, it can be difficult to have a perspective on how much damage they are causing to themselves and others.
For a start, there is the physical damage involved with substance abuse. Every time a person takes hard drugs or drinks excessively, they are running the risk of overdose or alcohol poisoning, both of which are potentially life-threatening.
There is the emotional and psychological damage of addiction – users can often feel chronic feelings of shame, guilt, weakness, and despair.
Substance abuse also increases the likelihood of inflicting harmful behaviours upon others, such as violence or any kind of abuse.
It also has an incredibly detrimental effect on personal finances, with a lot of addicts spending all of their disposable income on drugs or alcohol.
Life in addiction is grim, but there is always the possibility of recovery. Your best chance of achieving this is through rehab.
There are a large number of rehab facilities across Tynedale and the surrounding areas. All of them have different ways of operating, with an emphasis on different aspects of treatment.
This is where Rehab 4 Addiction comes in – we can help you to make sense of it all, and pick out the right rehab for you.
We have an extensive network of contacts within most of the rehab centres across the UK and in-depth knowledge of each facility.
Using this knowledge and experience, we can help you get into the rehab facility that is right for your personal needs and recovery goals.
We determine this by conducting an initial telephone assessment with you, during which we will ask you about your addiction and your personal circumstances, in order to get to know you better as a human being.
Once we have a bit more information, we will be able to make an informed decision over where to refer you. At this point, we will be able to go into detail about how much your treatment will cost financially, and how long you will need to stay at the facility.
We will also be able to advise on some of the practical considerations around your stay, such as arranging care for dependents while you are away.
Call us today on 0800 140 4690 to speak with a trained friendly Rehab 4 Addiction advisor, who will be able to begin your assessment whenever you are ready.
We understand that you may be unsure about talking about such sensitive topics with someone you do not know – this is a perfectly normal concern.
However, please be assured that we are bound by all applicable confidentiality laws of the UK, and we will treat your information with strict confidence.
The reason rehab is so successful in treating addiction when compared to other methods is that it offers a full range of different services within the same facility.
Every part of the recovery journey, from detox to treatment to prepare for life after rehab, can all take place under the same roof.
If you were to seek all of these different treatments outside of rehab, it would be a logistical nightmare to sort out, and would likely be spread over a much longer period of time, and possibly cost more money.
Detox is one of the first things you will need to go through at rehab, in order to get you sober and ready for the treatment to come.
This will be handled in a proper medically supervised way – please do NOT attempt to detox under your own steam before arriving at the facility.
This can be extremely dangerous, often leading to seizures, in some cases death.
The medical staff at the facility will be able to properly supervise your detoxification, and help you through any of the unpleasant effects of withdrawal should they crop up.
You will then be able to begin your therapies and treatment, which is the most beneficial aspect of rehab.
With the help of a team of professionals and other service users, you will be able to get to the bottom of the issues underlying your addiction.
You will also gain a high level of education on addiction and how it manifests, and be given the skills and coping techniques to deal with any cravings that you may have in the future.
Although this will likely be a painful process, the benefits are vast, and you will be able to explore your issues in the safe, controlled environment of a rehab facility.
Another key part of your treatment will be preparing for your new life once you leave rehab.
Completing your stay is a great achievement, but it is only really the start of your journey – staying in recovery requires a lifelong, proactive commitment. This is why you will need to put together a relapse prevention plan before you leave, with the help of an on-site professional.
This will help you identify areas or behaviours to avoid in your new life, as well as detailing proactive steps that you should take, such as attending ongoing group therapy meetings.
Addiction is a miserable way of life, but recovery is always possible if you commit to changing for the better. Rehab will not be easy, but you can be sure that it will be worthwhile. The highly-trained staff here Rehab 4 Addiction are here to help you on your way.
