For some, accepting professional drug and alcohol treatment from professionals seems impossible. Unfortunately, this reluctance reduces the chance of life-long sobriety.
It may never feel like the right time for those individuals. But for others, they need to know when the time is right for addiction treatment.
Of course, judging when you’re ready to throw yourself at drug and alcohol treatment can be as clear as mud. Even those who feel ready may back out with impending admission.
There seems to be a consensus that the timing must be suitable for rehab to get the most out of treatment. With timing crucial, some believe that to be genuinely ready for recovery, there must be a life-limiting, severe addiction.
Those people believe that utilising local free addiction services and support groups are better if a powerful addiction is absent.
Yes, some degree of support is better than none. However, individuals who believe this are sadly incorrect and hinder themselves and others from getting the right kind of support to become and stay sober.
Anyone struggling with and needing assistance for addiction recovery is eligible for rehab. With numerous rehab facilities in the UK catering to a range of personal needs, there is always a facility to help.
So whether you need help with substance abuse, alcohol, gambling, or other physical, psychological, or physical addictions, there’ll be an option to suit you.
Understanding the barriers involved in deciding if rehabilitation is something we pride ourselves on at Rehab 4 Addiction.
Our highly trained staff are well equipped to talk you through all the stages of rehab so you can make an informed decision about drug and alcohol rehab.
We also understand the extra challenges of committing to the unexpected. For example, if your knowledge and awareness of drug and alcohol rehab are currently limited, you may not feel ready to commit to the process.
However, with small steps, you can get your life back on track, free from the problems of drugs and alcohol abuse.
Try to be patient as we guide you through the small steps needed to gradually boost your awareness of rehab, your confidence, and your commitment to sobriety.
Not only can we help you grow, but we can also help you to find the right centre suited to your personal needs in Whitchurch.
Some steps you can take to get you ready and committed for rehab include speaking to loved ones or people who have attended rehab for advice. You could also try doing your online research.
In addition, rehab centres like Rehab 4 Addiction are always happy to talk you through the rehab process before you commit to admission.
These helpful steps can start you on your path to becoming physically and mentally ready for rehab, with a new appreciation of the value of rehab.
When deciding if the time is right for rehab, it’s vital for your readiness to be the driving force behind your decision. Openly and willingly accepting a rehab admission or professional guidance or recommendation for rehab is the clearest sign that the time might be right for you.
If you’re still unsure if you’re ready, then give our friendly Rehab 4 Addiction helpline a call today to learn more.
No matter your addiction, there’s addiction treatment available in Whitchurch for everyone. When contacting us at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll conduct a free and friendly assessment so we can recommend a residential rehab that matches the requirements, level of care, and accessibility you need in your local area.
However, attending a local rehab is not always ideal. For example, those battling severe and damaging links to their current routine due to the location would find it difficult to recover from drug and alcohol abuse.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we work with hundreds of centres across the UK, so we’ll also be able to find you a rehab clinic away from Whitchurch.
Whatever your requirements for rehab, our aim is always to help you find a suitable and secure residential treatment programme to suit you.
We’ll always consider factors such as budget, treatments, facilities, and the level of support needed to help you excel in recovery.
Once we’ve found you a rehab centre that’s right for you and you’ve signed up for admission, the next step is usually drug or alcohol withdrawal. Not everyone is eager to start this process, known for being an unpleasant and sometimes dangerous aspect of the recovery process.
However, this physical withdrawal from addiction promotes physical health, setting you up in the best way possible for your subsequent addiction treatments.
As your tolerance to drugs and alcohol begins to subside, you may experience shock and likely a host of withdrawal symptoms.
With withdrawal symptoms being potentially dangerous and unpleasant, some individuals will want to give up before they’ve even begun. This is the challenge of detoxing. 
Think about what you want to get out of rehab? If your main goal is to recover from your drug and alcohol use, you’re going to have to get past the unpleasantness of the withdrawal symptoms so that you can live a healthy life free from addiction.
The best way to do this comfortably and safely is to visit a drug and alcohol rehab. With medically managed withdrawal and frequent observation, you’re in much safer hands than if you were to go through the withdrawal process alone.
Scary as this may sound, it’s worth noting that the severity of withdrawal depends on the type and severity of addiction, along with personal factors, like your physical and mental health. 
But before you do this, you’ll need to sign up to and commit to admission before you can begin your detox programme. Doing so will ensure you have signed up for the best kind of rehab for your needs.
Detox is usually the first thing that you’ll do when you enter a residential rehab programme. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we want to put you in the right place, both physically and mentally, before you can begin your treatments.
Doing so enables you to focus on psychological repair and relapse prevention during your time with us.
If you ask your friends and family for advice, they may recommend detoxing at home to speed up the process or reduce cost. However, this can be dangerous advice.
Going ‘cold turkey’ at home will likely worsen your withdrawal symptoms, making it harder to stick to your detox when the symptoms become too much to bear.
If you want to withdraw from drugs and alcohol, we’d recommend avoiding ongoing drug and alcohol consumption and get in touch with our team urgently when you’re ready to be admitted to rehab.
In most cases, your daily routine, career, and wellness practises will need amendments. You may think right now that this is unrealistic or unfeasible, but consider how important it is to your future recovery success.
Ask yourself this, have you changed jobs to make it easier for you to consume drugs and alcohol? Have you distanced yourself from your old friends in replacement of those that consume drugs and alcohol with you?
Have you given up essential aspects of your life, such as hobbies or education, to prioritise your addiction?
Hopefully, answering these questions allows you to see the necessity of making changes to your post-rehab routine. These changes give you the best chance of remaining sober when you return home from rehab.
Conversely, not making these changes gives you a high risk of immediate relapse due to the pre-existing association you have with your previous life.
Aiming to make a host of overall changes is best in allowing for relapse prevention in a healthier and more positive lifestyle. These changes should include eating better, getting more sleep, exercising more, and improving your support systems, social crowd, and overall choices.
Implementing these changes and replacing the links to your old addiction lifestyle with more positive and healthy aspects, provides you with the coping strategies and positive changes to battle addiction.
We hope that increasing your awareness and understanding of addiction rehab will improve your readiness and ability to accept professional support from professionals.
