Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Wanstead

There are twice as many drugs consumed on a daily basis in London alone compared to any other city in Europe or across the UK. As people are surrounded by drugs every day, overcoming a drug or alcohol addiction can be a difficult experience to go alone.

That’s why we have our welcoming drug & alcohol rehab in Wanstead so that we can reach the people who need the help most.

With such high figures of those suffering from addiction, it would be assumed that many people are seeking help. However, this is not always the case.

It’s unfortunate that only 18% of people who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction or abuse actually reach out for help and receive rehabilitation.

If you’re serious about controlling your addiction, our drug & alcohol rehab in Wanstead is here to guide you through the process and get you on a pathway to recovery as soon as you’re ready.

Our friendly staff work around the clock to ensure you have a safe and comforting experience in our rehabilitation centres across the UK and beyond.

Do I need help?

If you’re asking yourself this question and found yourself on this page, you may have already answered it yourself. Considering whether a drug or alcohol problem is present in your life can be a key indicator that you know something is wrong.

However, it is possible to take substances without being addicted and this is known as drug abuse.

Drug abuse is likely to be present if you don’t experience withdrawal symptoms when you’re not taking and if you don’t feel that constant craving for the drug.

However, even when you are not addicted to a substance, but consumption is there, it is highly recommended that you seek help for any drug abuse or misuse occurring. Drug abuse can easily lead to addiction and this can have a devastating effect on your life.

If you’re feeling a persistent desire to use drugs or experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, headaches or sweats when you’re going with the substance it is more likely that you are suffering from addiction.

Understanding addiction from the psychological side as well as the physical side is how you will overcome your affliction.

If either of the above circumstances resonates with you then it must be time to seek help. Even the fact that you’ve found us online, shows that there must be a struggle present.

At Rehab 4 Addiction we pride ourselves on long-term recovery and that journey begins here.

What are the signs of addiction?

Although you may have recognised your consumption has gone too far, or that you may be misusing drugs in any way it’s always good to understand the signs and symptoms of addiction.

Looking out for these can give you a better understanding of your addiction and even help you notice them in your loved ones or people you know.

Some physical differences you may have noticed are unexpected weight loss or weight gain, a reduced effort in personal appearance or hygiene, or a significant change in appetite such as overeating or eating less often.

Psychological differences that you may notice in yourself or others suffering from addiction can include:

  • Feeling anxious or on edge
  • Being defensive when asked simple questions
  • Feeling mentally drained or constantly tired
  • Having trouble remember things that have happened recently
  • Sudden changes in moods such as a short temper or mood swings
  • or having a shorter attention span or lack of concentration.

But it’s not just physical and psychological signs that can reveal an addiction is present. There are also a number of behavioural changes that can make drug or alcohol addiction easier to spot.

Examples include:

  • Being secretive or defensive when asked about actions or behaviours
  • Being unreliable or not fulfilling tasks previously agreed upon
  • Cancelling events or avoiding specific people
  • or having shown dishonest behaviour like lying about where money is being spent.

If you have noticed any of the above signs in yourself or a loved one it may be time to reach out for help.

Our drug & alcohol rehab in Wanstead is here to help people suffering from all levels of substance abuse through to drug or alcohol addiction.

So, whether you’re looking for yourself, or on behalf of a loved one, we’re here for you.

Seeking help for yourself or on behalf of another?

Our team really listen and take into consideration everything you tell us, including the length of your problem, the substance you’re using, signs you display and whether you experience withdrawal symptoms when you’re not taking.

We’ll then map out a tailored plan specific to your needs and encourage treatments of your personal preference.

When you reach out to us, whether it’s for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, our team of friendly professionals will take the time to listen to you.

For many people, making their initial phone call is the first time they may have discussed their problem openly and that’s why we aim to make you at ease from the get-go.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we know that watching a loved one struggle with a substance disorder or addiction can be disheartening. Oftentimes it may feel you cannot do anything for them.

However, we’ll let you know all the ways you can support them through treatment and provide you with confidential advice and offer family therapy as one of our treatment options so that you can feel connected to their journey.

For those looking to seek help on behalf of another person, we are always here to help guide you in the right way about it.

We would always recommend that having a frank conversation with them when they are not under the influence is always best, and therefore advise you to try this in the morning.

If you’re calling on behalf of a loved one and believe they need an intervention, we’ll not only note the signs and symptoms you’ve noticed but also support you in supporting them.

People suffering from drug or alcohol addiction may also be living in denial and you must be firm when it comes to intervention.

Leaving space for excuses or letting them avoid the conversation is a no-go. You’ll need to be comforting and encourage expression during this time and if you’d like any specific advice, we’re available to talk about your loved one’s symptoms and discuss how we can help them – we’re just a phone call away.

Give us a call

If you’re ready to make a big change in your life, or to help support a loved one who needs help with their struggles, Rehab 4 Addiction in Wanstead is here for you.

All you need to do is set aside five to ten minutes of your time to discuss the problem with one of our friendly staff.

By calling 0800 140 4690 today you can get yourself or your loved one on a pathway to recovery, with the encouragement of our nurturing staff to prevent any relapse in the future.

We want you to lead a healthier life, and this is where your new chapter begins.
