Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Wallington

At Rehab 4 Addiction we understand it can feel a tremendous responsibility for family members to provide support for their loved ones who may be suffering from addiction.

We also know that no matter what you do, you’ll always feel like there’s more you could be doing to help.

Addictions of all severities can consume the lives of those addicted and also have a big impact on those around them.

There can be lasting repercussions on the everyday life of not only the addicted but their family and friends, which is why we recommend you do not attempt to deal with your addiction alone.

There’s a common misconception that intervention will stop you from properly supporting your loved one, but when a drug or alcohol addiction is present, professional rehabilitation is always the best solution.

When to intervene?

If you’re worried about a loved one who may have slipped into addiction through substance abuse, you must be wondering how you can help and what is the best way to go about it.

Rehab 4 Addiction in Wallington is here for you around the clock to give you the advice you need.

Wondering if the actions of your loved ones have gotten out of hand?

We would first ask you to consider if you have noticed at of the following physical or psychological differences in them:

  • Do they seem to have a lack of energy?
  • Have they had changes in their mood, such as mood swings or defensive attitudes?
  • Are they consuming excessive amounts of alcohol or drugs?
  • Does their consumption vary in times throughout the day?
  • Have they been spending a lot of money with nothing to show for it?
  • Do they often have slurred speech?
  • Have you noticed them gain or lose unexpected weight without trying to?
  • Have they continually used excuses to miss events?
  • Do they go out at very late times of night?
  • Have they missed work or come home very late from work for no reason?

If you’ve noticed some or all of these behaviours and changes in a loved one, your next step is to sit them down and have a calm conversation about the way they have changed.

By calling our friendly staff we can guide in the best way to have this conversation.

We know that having this discussion can be a difficult task for both parties involved and we want to ensure you know the best way about having an intervention.

Many people suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction can try to avoid conversations about consumption or ignore support but being firm in what you suggest is the best way to breakthrough.

Your loved one may be living in denial about their addiction and having you there for them can be a way to open up about these feelings and learn to accept the addiction is present.

We always advise that when you choose to make this conversation it is when they’re sober and not under the influence of their chosen substance. The morning can be the best time for this.

Although it may feel selfish, addiction can take its toll on those around them and create a toxic home environment and you must know that supporting them alone is not entirely possible.

As daunting as it may feel, you must refer them to a drug & alcohol rehab near them, in the Wallington area.

How to refer someone?

We’re here around the clock to offer friendly and helpful advice to those both suffering from addiction or who have a loved one or colleague who may be struggling.

We want you to know that whatever side you’re on, we’re there to support you in the process of getting help.

When you call us, we’ll ask you to explain any signs or symptoms you may have noticed in yourself or your loved one so that we can offer the right advice.

If it seems rehab is the right solution, we can then discuss the drug & alcohol rehab options in Wallington. If rehabilitation doesn’t seem necessary, we can also offer alternative therapies that can guide you or your loved one into a healthier future.

This could be through therapy or include a short detox.

What happens at rehab?

There are three main stages to a successful recovery. But first, we need our patients to be committed. Understanding that rehabilitation is not just a one-off event but a lifelong commitment to a healthier lifestyle is paramount to a successful recovery.

All of our treatment options will start with some form of detoxification. For acute alcoholism, this could only be a 5-day step, for those suffering from more severe drug or alcohol addiction it can take up to a week or 10 days.

This process will see toxins flushed out of the patient’s system and it’s common for withdrawal symptoms to occur.

We have on-hand professionals ready around the clock to ensure the safety and security of all our patients during this process and can offer prescribed medications to ease the pain of withdrawal.

Our next step is therapy. Having completed detoxification, each patient is invited to individual or group therapy sessions where they can discuss the psychological side of their addiction.

These sessions provide each patient with the tools and skills needed to deal with possible future triggers and to carry out a sober lifestyle post-rehab.

With a deeper understanding of the addiction and the right tools, each patient is less likely to relapse and has a better chance of long-term recovery.

After leaving our drug & alcohol rehab in Wallington, we want you to know that you are not left alone. Leaving the residential can feel daunting for some, and freeing for others, having changed their views on addiction and the substance of choice.

It is with their continued commitment and through our tailored aftercare plans that they can feel secure that their recovery is forever, and not just short-term.

Some forms of aftercare involve therapy sessions or attending further support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

Every person is different, which means every addiction is different and in turn, every recovery is different. That’s why we aim to tailor all of our programmes to suit the needs of each individual patient.

How to support my loved one?

If you’re concerned about a loved one’s addiction taking over their life and they have accepted that rehabilitation is the best option, we can help you support them step by step.

You’ll be invited to have phone calls, give care packages and there are options for family therapy to be a part of their treatment plan in order to understand them and their personal journey.

Care packages can include letters and photographs to remind them they are not alone and that you are there to support them every step of the way. It’s advised to discuss what items can and cannot be included in these packages with the staff.

But certainly, letting them know you are proud of them for making this change can have a great impact on their willingness to continue.

How can I refer?

If you’re ready to take the next step, to find the right drug & alcohol rehab in Wallington for you, all you need to do is give us a call.

Our friendly staff are available around the clock on 0800 140 4690 to help you better understand the addiction that may be affecting your life.

Accepting the problem is present and being committed to the journey is paramount, and Rehab 4 Addiction in Wallington is here for you every step of the way.
