If you’re thinking about stopping drugs and alcohol, this is a huge moment. It takes a lot of courage to admit you have a problem in a society that isn’t always the kindest to people who have addictions.
Realising and accepting there is a problem and then being ready to change your habits is a special moment that deserves to be recognised and valued.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we value every person. Like any other illness, addiction should be treated with specialist staff that care about the patient living with the health concern.
Rehab 4 Addiction is connected to top quality private clinics throughout the country. We liaise with the centres and staff regularly.
When people contact us seeking support towards a life of sobriety, we match their individual needs to specific rehab programmes.
You don’t want to end up in treatment services that aren’t equipped to treat you as effectively as possible.
This is why Rehab 4 Addiction exists, to match you to the best clinic and to make your transition from addiction towards abstinence as relaxed and easy as possible.
It goes without saying that wherever you’re offered the most support and treatment is going to give you the highest chances of recovery success.
Many people access NHS funded rehabilitation services in their local communities. This can be very effective for some, however, they tend to have long waiting lists and fewer counselling options.
On the other hand, high-standard private clinics offer quick admission as well as the best types of treatment available in the UK.
You can opt for outpatient services from a private clinic which is a happy medium for some. This is where people live at home but attend sessions at private rehab centres.
What really needs to be considered, though, is what your treatment needs are.
Outpatient services are useful for people who have mild substance misuse issues, but a stay at rehab is highly recommended for those who are living with serious drug and alcohol problems.
When you stay at rehab your safety is the top priority. Clinical staff ensure that any withdrawal symptoms you have are managed effectively with medication.
For those who find it especially hard to get past the first few days of breaking a habit, a stay at rehab is usually essential.
There are also the benefits of 24/7 care. When faced with difficult moments, you have staff and peers who understand what you’re going through and know how to make it easier.
This is one reason why rehab stays are so effective at supporting people to detox.
There are many treatments for you in the Wigton area. Some people might prefer to attend a rehab further away.
This can be discussed with the Rehab 4 Addiction team. You can opt for inpatient or outpatient services, although really, it’s best to be guided by our team as we can advise what’s best for your specific needs.
Specialist rehabilitation programmes offer therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy.
These have been proven to support people quit addictions to alcohol and drugs so long as people are committed to following the full length of treatment and fully participate.
There are also alternative therapies that are highly beneficial in providing people with the emotional and spiritual aspects of recovery. Yoga, mindfulness, and reiki are especially effective areas of treatment.
There are 12 Step groups at private clinics that you’ll participate in. However, you can also access 12 Step groups in the Wigton area outside of these clinics.
Millions of people throughout the world are supported through this type of peer group.
AA and NA groups are so effective because they connect people to a social network. Interestingly, one of the issues that often maintain an addiction is how isolating the experience can be.
It’s advisable to join a local group as this is an activity you can rely on every week to provide a safe space focused on healing and recovery.
You can call Rehab 4 Addiction to find out more about your options in terms of local 12 Step groups.
If you stay as a resident for a length of time at a private clinic, you’ll eventually have to go back to real life! This might feel daunting but should be seen as the next step towards your life of recovery.
During your rehab stay, you and the staff will devise an aftercare plan. The goal of this is to identify any problem areas that exist in your regular life and to have a plan on how to manage these areas.
Everybody who goes to rehab who wants to gain a life of sobriety has to be willing to make lifestyle changes.
When you return home, you will start to implement these lifestyle changes and this is what will make abstinence sustainable for you.
Lifestyle changes will include factors such as cutting old ties to people who might encourage you to use drugs or drink, starting new hobbies, attending 12 Step groups regularly, and spending time with people who support you to be sober.
Yes. Rehabilitation is hugely successful for thousands of people every month.
They support residents to quit the substance and to understand how to regain control of their lives.
Many support residents through continuing contact after the person has stayed through counselling and group work.
It’s important to acknowledge, though, that although you’ll have the best treatment and support on offer, the determination and commitment to change has to come from you.
