Addiction is a terrible affliction, which has the potential to destroy lives, families, and communities if left untreated. While there is no ‘cure’ for addiction, in the traditional sense of the word, there absolutely is treatment available, and there is always the possibility of getting into recovery and staying there for the long term.
The best chance you have of doing so is by getting treatment at a dedicated rehab facility. This is where Rehab 4 Addiction comes in – we have links with rehab locations all around the country, and we can use our expertise to determine the right one for you.
Call us on 0800 140 4690 to speak with one of our expert rehabilitation advisors, who will be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
When you are ready to proceed, they can guide you through the first part of the process, which is your initial assessment. The questions asked during this assessment will aim to find out some specifics about your addiction, such as how severe your substance abuse is, and how specifically it has impacted your personal life.
We appreciate the fact that these are personal questions, and that you may be hesitant to answer them, give that you are talking to someone that you have not spoken to before. Please be assured that we offer a completely non-judgemental approach, and we are simply asking these questions to ensure that we can refer you to the right rehab centre.
Everyone’s addiction is slightly different, and each of the facilities on our books has their own way of doing things and emphasises different treatments during the recovery process.
This is why using our service is so valuable – we have expert insight and in-depth knowledge of a huge amount of rehab centres across the UK, including here in Waveney and the surrounding area.
Once we have more information about your case, we can pick out the right one for you and your needs. If you’re ready to begin the process, please call us on 0800 140 4690 as soon as possible. If you’re not quite there yet, please read n to find out more about rehab and recovery.
When it comes to facing addiction, often the biggest obstacle to face is denial. There are a lot of people out there who have been problematic in their drug or alcohol use for some time, but may not be willing to accept that they have an addiction.
They may think that their consumption is just social, or that they are just going through some kind of phase. This raises some key questions about how to know when you or someone you know has developed an addiction that needs formal treatment.
If you find yourself going to lengths to conceal the extent of your drug or alcohol use from family or friends, it is likely that you have developed an addiction.
Likewise, if your level of drug or alcohol consumption has alienated you from friends or family, or affected your work life or professional relationships, it is also likely that you have a serious problem.
If addiction has caused major detriment to your mental and/or physical wellbeing, it is time to acknowledge your addiction and do something about it. If you are in this position, the best possible course of action you can take is to go to rehab.
Rehab is so effective because it provides the opportunity to go through every stage of recovery within the same facility – from your initial detox, through to therapy and ultimately aftercare.
The aim of rehab is not just to stop you from using – it is to examine the underlying issues that have driven you to substance abuse in the first place, and address them in a secure healing environment. While you might be able to get some kind of treatment through the NHS, such as counselling groups or CBT, enrolling at rehab provides the most comprehensive recovery treatment available.
At rehab, you will have access to a host of professionals who can provide cognitive behavioural therapy, individual counselling, group therapy, motivational therapy, stress management training, and others.
Rehab also provides respite from home life, which may have become chaotic or toxic under addiction. You will be able to gradually work through your issues in a tranquil, safe environment, without being affected by the stresses of your domestic or work life.
Most patients will remain in rehab for around 28 days, which is enough time to safely detox, go through treatment, and prepare for re-entering the outside world and staying in recovery once you do.
Rehab is a comprehensive treatment process that requires a great deal of commitment. From enduring the side effects of withdrawal, to discussing sensitive issues throughout your psychological treatment, it is fair to say that rehab will not be easy.
However, you will have a host of trained professionals to help you through every step of the way. Rehab is the best chance you have of achieving recovery, and freeing yourself from the miserable cycle of substance abuse.
As mentioned above, the first thing you need to do is arrive at a place mentally where you are willing to accept and acknowledge your own addiction. You also need to have a commitment to change for the better, no matter how challenging the process might be.
When you are ready, you can begin the referral process by calling us on 0800 140 4690. The advisor you speak to will be able to address any concerns you might still have, and in your own time, they can begin your telephone consultation.
Once we have a clearer picture of your addiction and circumstances, we will be able to determine the right facility for you, and make your referral there as smooth a transition as possible.
Please note that we currently only provide a referral to private rehab centres. In some cases, rehab referral is available through the NHS, however, it is likely that you will be waiting some time for an opening. It is best to get treatment as soon as possible, and with private rehab facilities, there is no need to be on a waiting list.
We understand that the financial cost of rehab may of concern to you – this is something that we can discuss in detail when you call us. Once we have determined an appropriate facility, we offer full transparency about how long you will need to stay, and what the exact cost will be.
We can also discuss any finance options that you might have available to you and any of the other practicalities around getting you into rehab.
