If you’ve become concerned about how your drug or alcohol use is affecting other aspects of your life, it might be time to consider whether you have developed an addiction.
When drugs and alcohol are used habitually, it’s more common than you may realise for an addiction to form.
There’s no shame in admitting that you’re struggling with an addiction, and it’s actually possible to find professional help nearby in the Wadhurst area.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we have a large network of partner drug and alcohol rehab facilities spread right across the UK, so whether you want to stay close to home or not, we’re sure to be able to connect you with a reputable addiction treatment centre.
Reach out to our friendly team, here at Rehab 4 Addiction for free today, on 0800 140 4690, or request a callback through our contact form.
All calls are completely confidential and you are under no obligation and we can talk through the different options available to you.
Identifying an addiction in yourself can be extremely difficult, not least due to the denial that often comes along with addiction.
As experts in the field of drug and alcohol addiction and rehabilitation, we can help you to distinguish between heavy substance use and addiction.
We’ll offer support, guidance and make recommendations about your drug and alcohol use, highlighting the signs that it’s become problematic, so you can make an informed decision about your next steps.
We understand that it can be challenging to ask for help, so we’ve listed some of the common signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction below.
Read through the list and be honest with yourself, do you need to consider help?
If you’re ready to acknowledge the presence of addiction and would like to take steps towards your recovery, we can help you to both select the right type of treatment for your needs, and begin your admission with one of our trusted partner treatment centres.
A short phone assessment will allow us to determine the level of your addiction and make recommendations for the best course of action. We can then look at the locations near Wadhurst that are able to offer the relevant treatment.
Of course, if you’d prefer to recover elsewhere, just let us know and we will be happy to accommodate your needs.
If our assessment highlights a moderate to severe addiction is present, it’s most likely that we will recommend residential rehab.
Those with minor or newly emerging substance use issues may benefit from outpatient services. Whichever form of rehab you opt for, we can help you to access services quickly and easily.
Unfortunately, whilst we are aware that home detox kits are available to purchase in the UK, we would strongly advise against using them.
Independent attempts at detoxing from alcohol or certain drugs can have incredibly dangerous, and even life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.
Aside from the risks involved with individual detox, this is rarely a successful method of addiction recovery.
Addiction is a disease of the body and mind, and therefore, if you’re only removing the immediate physical connection to substances without tackling the psychological connection (which is not possible alone), then you’re leaving the door open for future relapses.
The reason that professional and particularly residential rehab offers better recovery statistics is due to the holistic nature of the treatment.
Both physical and psychological aspects of your illness are investigated and diminished. You will also learn how to avoid relapses, helping you maintain your sobriety in the long term.
We have reputable partners offering private residential drug and alcohol rehab in the Wadhurst area, so why risk the discomfort and disappointment of inferior addiction treatments.
Give yourself the best possible chance to recover and stay sober, through residential rehab.
You will have access to specialist doctors and addiction support workers, who will develop a personalised recovery plan on admission to your programme.
This will look at your own experience with drugs or alcohol and how they have affected your life, in order to address each aspect of your issue.
Residential rehab centres are designed with recovery in mind, so they offer an ideal environment for focus and calm, with elements of nature and relaxation.
All of your personal needs, such as food, laundry and cleaning will be taken care of so that you can dedicate your efforts to recovery without the distractions of daily life.
Medically assisted detox will provide a far safer and more comfortable alternative than independent detox. Experienced clinicians will reduce your substance use gradually, using prescription medications to minimise the withdrawal symptoms.
You will be monitored throughout for your own safety, and medically trained staff are on hand at all times.
Once sober, you will attend a wide range of psychotherapy treatments that are widely considered the most successful in the treatment of drug and alcohol addictions.
You will have the opportunity to find out why your addictive behaviours began, how to diminish them and replace them with healthier activities.
You will also learn new coping mechanisms for a sober life through motivational therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and group therapy activities, amongst others.
Once discharged, an extensive aftercare programme will help you to stay on the right path, maintaining your recovery when you return home to Wadhurst.
Once you’ve taken the decision to attempt recovery, it’s important that you take action as soon as possible.
The nature of addiction can cause motivation to recover to reduce overtime, and often, those on long waiting lists will give up on their goals before they access the help that they need.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can fast-track your admission to addiction treatment, without the need for a GP referral, so long as you’re committed to your recovery.
Contact us today, here, at Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, or ask for a callback via our web contact page.
