Rehab 4 Addiction

Are you struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol? Are you concerned about a loved one who is? If you’re looking for help with addiction, you’ve come to the right place. Rehab 4 Addiction is a dedicated referral service that specialises in getting people who are struggling with addiction into a rehab facility that is right for them.

We have links with rehab centres across the whole of the UK and can provide this service for you here in the Walton-on-Thames area in Surrey.

We recognise that every individual who is struggling with addiction has their own specific set of challenges. This is why one of the first things we do once you call us on 0800 140 4690 is conduct an initial assessment with you, in order to find out more about you as a human being, and how addiction has affected your life.

This may include questions on how your addiction started, how it has manifested, and your current life circumstances.

We do this to ensure that we’re in the best possible position to recommend a rehab facility that caters to your specific needs and recovery goals. Once we identify an appropriate course of action, we can refer you to that centre as soon as practically possible, and you can begin your transition to recovery from substance abuse.

Completing a course of rehab will not be easy, and can be very challenging in parts. However, it is a worthwhile investment in your future self. Think of how enriching your new life will be, free of substance abuse! Drug & alcohol rehab makes a real, lasting change to the lives of millions of people around the world.

How do I know if I need to go to rehab?

The harm that addiction and substance abuse does can manifest in any number of different ways. It could be that your personal relationships have deteriorated due to your substance abuse, or that you’ve lost your job or your personal motivation due to addiction.

However, it has affected you, one thing remains true – if your life has become unmanageable due to drug or alcohol abuse, it’s time to seek professional help.

This is the first step towards solving any problem – admitting and accepting that the problem exists. Once you have accepted that you need treatment, it can still be somewhat overwhelming considering the various treatment options that are out there.

These range from self-help apps and books to support groups and various other kinds of therapy, such as CBT and DBT. However, it is unlikely that any of these therapies will be as transformative as a stay in a dedicated rehab facility.

This is because rehab has everything you need under one roof. You will be able to safely detox, set out a treatment plan, complete various therapies and exercises, gain a better understand of your addiction and mental health, and prepare for integration back into the wider world.

Is detox a part of rehab?

Yes – if you are currently still abusing drugs or alcohol, it is almost certain that one of the things you will do in rehab is go through a detox procedure.

This will be supervised by medical professionals – under no circumstances should you attempt to detox by yourself, or go ‘cold turkey, before you arrive at the rehab facility. This can be extremely dangerous, even fatal in some cases.

Detox in a rehab facility usually involves reducing your consumption gradually over a number of days, rather than stopping straight away. As you go through this process, it is likely that you will experience some undesirable physical side effects of withdrawal.

This could include headaches, muscle aches, profuse sweating, and other fever0like symptoms. The medical staff at the rehab centre will be on hand to help you through this passing pain and discomfort, in a way that does not jeopardise your recovery.

As unpleasant as detox can be, it is obviously a necessary part of the rehab process. Any discomfort that you do experience will be lessened by the fact that you are at a proper medical facility, surrounded by highly-trained staff who are there to help you in any way they can.

What else can I expect from rehab?

Your treatment plan will include a number of different therapies, which could include group sessions, one-to-one counselling, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

You will also be educated on various aspects of mental illness, and provided with psychological coping tools for the future, such as stress management. There will likely also be a number of more holistic activities on the schedule, such as yoga, mindfulness, art therapy and others.

With attending a rehab close to home, there is also the potential opportunity for family members to be involved in some therapy sessions in order to facilitate group healing. However, this will only be recommended if appropriate for you, and will only happen with your consent.

All of these different activities will aid your recovery in different ways, even if some of them does not seem immediately obvious. All that the professionals will ask is that you approach each new activity with an open mind, and an acceptance that the activities are planned out with your recovery in mind.

Can I attend rehab as an outpatient?

This is a potential possibility, however, it will only be recommended if appropriate for your needs. If there is some kind of ongoing toxic situation at home, such as an abusive partner or trouble with neighbours, there is every chance that these situations could jeopardise your recovery. In this case, you would be recommended to attend as an inpatient.

Staying at rehab as a resident also eliminates any complications that you might have in getting to the centre from home, such as traffic or other unforeseen circumstances. Punctuality and structure is very important within rehab.

How do I start the process?

Whenever you’re ready to acknowledge your addiction, you can reach out to us on 0800 140 4690 to speak confidentially with a trained Rehab 4 Addiction advisor. They will be able to answer any further questions that you have, and when you are ready to proceed, we can begin the initial assessment to find out a bit more about you.

We will then use that information to decide upon an appropriate treatment facility for you within the Walton-on-Thames area. Once we have determined the right location, we offer full transparency on how much it will cost, and how long you will need to stay there – usually, this is around 28 days, although that can vary.

Recovery is always possible, and we are here to make your journey into rehab as straightforward as possible.
