Rehab 4 Addiction

Rehab 4 Addiction is a free helpline to assist you in locating drug and alcohol rehab in Wigan and across Greater Manchester. Addiction is not a choice. Instead, addiction is a disease that requires medical and therapeutic treatment in order to overcome.

Addiction has affected all corners of the world, and Wigan has not remained untouched in this near-global outbreak. Thankfully, many suitable residential and outpatient addiction treatment options are available to you within the Wigan area.

Drug and alcohol rehabs have never been so accessible in Wigan. There is no need to join lengthy waiting lists in order to begin your rehab treatment.

However, the sheer number of treatment options may be overwhelming and frustrating for you, especially if you have never sought out treatment before.

How are you to possibly know which treatment is suited to your needs?

Answering this question is where Rehab 4 Addiction can help. To answer this question correctly, we must gather information relating to your addiction.

To achieve this aim, we offer you a free assessment over the phone. During this assessment, we identify your needs and then we match those needs to services offered by rehab providers in Wigan. Doing so allows us to recommend highly suitable rehab clinics.

Contact us today on 0800 140 4690 to avoid the vast amount of research that’s typically required when assessing various rehab providers in Wigan and across Greater Manchester.

Our advisors are assisted with an up-to-date database of rehab providers both in Wigan and across the UK. This ensures you avoid attending a rehab that may be poorly suited to serving your individual and unique requirements.

When it comes to substance misuse, everybody is different. To ensure we are able to recommend a variety of suitable rehabs that address your unique needs, we have built up contact with a large network of rehabs in the Wigan area, and we are able to access the suitability of each rehab on your behalf.

Why should I consider going to a drug and alcohol rehab in Wigan?

If you suffer from acute alcoholism or drug addiction, then going to rehab really is non-negotiable. Around 60% of people who suffer from addiction will never make a full recovery.

Sooner or later, these people will develop life-threatening illnesses as a direct result of their addiction. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people suffering from an addiction will not seek out professional help.

Merely reading this text probably means you have at least searched the Internet for addiction treatment within the Wigan area. This act separates you from the vast majority of people who will not seek out any help at all.

Because these people do not seek out help, their addiction is extremely unlikely to go away unchallenged. If you have attempted to stop taking drugs and alcohol in the past, it’s likely that you will agree with this assertion.

One option is to attend a residential rehab clinic. Here, you receive intensive and round-the-clock treatment by a variety of professionals. You will also be removed from bad influences and temptations. This is because you will live in the rehab clinic for around 28-days in total.

Unchallenged, addiction causes mental as well as physical health problems. Addiction is a progressive disorder, meaning addiction will continue to get worse and worse if you do not take action.

Going to rehab effectively stops your addiction from progressing. In fact, you will learn to cope with life’s ills without taking drugs and alcohol.

To get into a drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Wigan and reverse much of this damage caused by addiction, then contact us today without delay. Rehab 4 Addiction is managed and staffed by advisors who are all in recovery themselves. This means you will not be met with any judgement of any kind when you get in touch.

We offer a structured assessment when you get in touch. This assessment allows us to structure our rehab recommendations to ensure we signpost you to clinics that are ideally suited to your needs.

Will I need to undergo detox in Wigan?

If you are addicted to drugs such as alcohol, opiates or benzodiazepines, it’s highly likely you will require a medically assisted detox. However, if you are addicted to ‘psychologically’ addictive substances such as cannabis or cocaine, then you will not require a detox.

If the need for detox becomes evident, we shall recommend you to a rehab clinic in Wigan that offers this service. Not all rehab clinics offer a detox, because not all rehabs have access to clinical support.

Physically addictive substances include alcohol, opiates and many prescription medications. We shall not provide an exhaustive list of physically addictive drugs here. When you contact us, our advisors are on hand to determine whether or not you require a medically assisted detox.

When you are addicted to any sort of drug, whether physically addictive or not, you will need to give your body and mind enough time to rest and recover. Going to a residential rehab allows you to achieve this aim whilst shielding you from outside interferences that could potentially serve to frustrate your recovery goals.

The unsurpassed level of care you will receive at a drug and alcohol rehab in Wigan means all your needs will be met. Staff will take care of your laundry, cook all your food and clean your room once or twice a day.

If you require detox, stopping drug and alcohol use will almost certainly trigger withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms may be described as discomforting. This could include a headache, vomiting, nausea or sweating.

Milder withdrawal symptoms could quickly develop into seizures, hallucinations and even a cardiac arrest or stroke. It is thus vital that you receive 24/7 medical attention whilst you detox in case your health takes a turn for the worse.

If you attend a drug and alcohol rehab in Wigan that offers a clinical detox, you will definitely be assessed by a psychiatrist before your detox begins. This psychiatrist will also prescribe you with medications designed to ease these withdrawal symptoms and to prevent these symptoms from advancing.

For the reasons outlined above, we would only recommend that you attempt to detox at home with medical supervision. In fact, it’s safer for you to continue taking drugs and alcohol. This advice may seem contradictory, but this advice is sound and should be taken seriously because thousands of lives are lost each year due to untreated physical withdrawal symptoms.

During your detox, you will be given nutritional supplements as well as medications in order to reduce withdrawal symptoms. These supplements include vitamins, minerals and glucose powder. This level of assistance almost eliminates the risk of suffering from life-threatening complications during a drug and alcohol detox.

Helping you assess your treatment options

Rehab 4 Addiction is able to recommend a variety of treatment options in Wigan. These include outpatient counselling, mutual support groups, residential rehabs and quasi-residential rehabs. You may access private as well as publicly funded treatment.

The main advantage of paying for your rehab treatment via a private healthcare provider is that you may begin treatment without submitting to an unreasonably long waiting list that’s all too common when attempting to access statutory services.

All rehab programmes we recommend in Wigan are fully tailored to your needs. We do not promote a ‘one-size-fits’ approach to addiction treatment. The treatment you receive will be adapted to your needs.

Contact us today for advice

To begin your recovery journey, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690. All treatment plans we recommend in Wigan also include a generous aftercare package to help you fully readjust to life without drugs and alcohol.

Rehab 4 Addiction facilitates a variety of addiction treatments in Manchester and across Lancashire in Bolton, Salford, Blackpool, Stockport, Blackburn, Rochdale, Wigan, Preston, Oldham, Bury, Lancaster, Chorley, Burnley and St Annes.
