Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Warlingham

Are you struggling with drug or alcohol use? Do you find that you’re unable to stop, no matter how much it hurts you or those around you? Have people around you started to notice changes?

If you’re searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Warlingham, Rehab 4 Addiction has plenty of resources to help support your journey.

We have more information on how to reach out to us (and more information on the rehab process overall and why it works) below.

How to reach out

To get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction, all you need to do is call or drop a message on our website. To start, we’ll be able to give advice and support on anything you need.

On a deeper level, if it’s something you want and/or need, we’ll then be able to assess you and create a treatment plan accordingly. To establish your specific circumstances, the questions we ask will likely be along the following lines:

  • What are you addicted to?
  • How long have you been suffering from addiction?
  • Does anyone else know about your addiction?
  • Is this the first time you’ve tried to get help?

When we know your exact circumstances, we’ll ensure that your treatment is highly personalised. This is especially important in the field of addiction particularly.

Different substances can have different effects, people’s addictions can have different levels of severity and the personality of the person being treated can change things too.

Finally, we also have several residential facilities across the country. The closest place for drug and alcohol rehab in Warlingham is our Surrey centre.

This secluded, private space has recreational and residential areas alongside areas for treatment, making it a relaxed environment. There’s an on-site gymnasium, beautiful grounds and rooms for holistic therapy.

Although it is generally recommended for those with moderate to severe dependencies, residential rehab isn’t for everyone. In outpatient treatment, you’ll go to a clinic for a few hours a day.

This is of course less intensive, so it may suit those with less severe addictions.

The root causes of addiction

As we’ve previously established, addiction is a complex disorder, which often has several underlying causes. As a result, it can be hard to establish one exact cause – but it may slowly become clear throughout your treatment.

Addiction aims to get to the root causes and work through them, so you can start to move forward. One major way this is done is via therapy and counselling, where we’ll make an effort to confront any traumas or mental health issues that may be driving your addiction.

One way this is done is via therapy and counselling. This is actually an umbrella term for various kinds of treatment, including:

  • Talking therapy, where you simply sit down and talk to a therapist.
  • Motivational interviewing, where you’re encouraged to re-examine your behaviour through a series of non-judgmental questions.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy, where the negative thinking patterns known as cognitive distortions are worked through.
  • Art and music therapy, where you can express yourself creatively.
  • Group therapy, where you’ll heal alongside others in the same situation. This can help everyone to feel supported, especially as this can be a tough process overall.

Why rehab works

Looking into all those complex factors, you might start to see why professional help is the best solution for these issues. Looking at these issues with the help of professionals with years of expertise will be the best way to deal with them in the long term.

At the same time, both inpatient and outpatient treatment aims to give you the life skills needed to manage both your addiction and any other issues caused by it.

Kinds of treatment

Now that we’ve discussed the impact that rehab can have, let’s look at some treatments in more specific detail. We’ve already talked about therapy and counselling, but that’s not the only kind of mental health treatment commonly used in this process.

To use one major example, support groups like alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous can be a huge help.

This is because they put the focus on a third and final benefit of rehab: a network of support from professionals and other people going through the same things as you.

To go back to the point on life skills, workshops on addiction and healthy living can also really help to prevent relapse. Finally, let’s wind back to the very beginning to discuss the treatment that starts nearly all rehab journeys: detoxes.

These are usually done over 3 weeks and aims to cleanse your body of drugs and alcohol in a safe, supported environment.

The importance of research/What to take with you

Something else that’s very important in the early part of this process is research. Hopefully, we’ve given you a base level of knowledge here.

But given how individualised treatments can be, it’s also very important that you do as much research as you can, based on your specific circumstances.

Look at the withdrawal symptoms for the exact substance you’re addicted to, look at what treatments you’re most likely to be recommended, look at everything you can.

If you’re looking at specific treatment centres, you should also find out more about each one on an individual basis, including rules and treatments.

Speaking of rules and regulations, it’s also important that you look up what you aren’t allowed to take with you.

Every place will have its own guidelines, but generally, the banned list includes:

  • Any drugs or alcohol for obvious reasons
  • Any toiletries that could contain alcohol
  • Outside food and drinks
  • Sporting equipment
  • E-cigarettes
  • DVDs and Video games

While the recommended list includes:

  • Sentimental jewellery, like wedding rings (more valuable items are generally not recommended)
  • Contact details of anyone you’d like to get in touch with during your treatment
  • Clothes and toiletries
  • A notebook or journal and a pen
  • Pictures of loved ones

There’s one final point we’d like to make. No matter what stage of recovery you’re at or how many times you’ve been through treatment, Rehab 4 Addiction will always be there to help pick you back up.

All you need to do is get in touch.
