If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, or are concerned about someone else who is. Addiction is a mighty battle to face, but the good news is, you don’t need to face it alone – we at Rehab 4 Addiction can help you to get the help that you need.
Rehab 4 Addiction is a service that exists to match people in addiction with a rehab centre that is appropriate for them and their needs. We can offer places at centres all across the country, including here in the Willesden and London area.
Get in touch today to speak to one of our friendly advisors, who can help you to understand more about the process. Whenever you’re ready, they can refer you to a facility in your local area.
If you’re not ready to call us just yet, read on for some more information about what we do, how we can help, and what the process is.
People living in addiction often spend a long time in denial that their problem even exists. There are many reasons for this – it could be that the person feels a sense of shame, that they don’t want to commit the time and effort required to get help, or it could be to do with the stigma that unfortunately surrounds drug and alcohol addiction.
All of these reasons are understandable – we’re only human. Sadly, a person with addiction cannot get better until they first admit that there is a problem to be addressed.
This is why, before you reach out to us and start the process of getting into rehab, you must accept and acknowledge that you have a problem. Only then will the healing process be able to begin.
If you’re ready to face up to your addiction and commit to recovery, you can call us to speak with a trained Rehab 4 Addiction advisor.
One of the first things they will do is begin an initial assessment with you, the goal of which is to find out more details about your addiction, such as the severity of use, how long it’s been a part of your life, what your triggers are, etc.
Once we’ve got to know you better, we will be able to make an informed decision as to which of the facilities on our books would be right for you.
Despite some common misconceptions, rehab is actually an incredibly personalised process – treatment plans that would work for one person might not work for the next. This is why we try to gain as much information about your case as possible before making a decision.
This personalisation will continue once you get to rehab. Among the first things, you will do upon arrival is put together a treatment plan, with the help of one of the professionals on site.
As mentioned above, it varies for everyone, but some of the most common therapies include things like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), motivational therapy, support groups, individual therapy, treatments for dual diagnosis.
If you live within travelling distance of your family, it is possible that they might be able to get involved with some therapy sessions, where appropriate. This will only happen if you consent to it and if your mental health professional deems it to be beneficial to your recovery.
You may also be encouraged to take part in more holistic activities such as yoga and meditation, and even activities like gardening and making crafts. All of these treatments combined will have an accumulative, restorative effect that will help you towards recovery.
In the last days of your stay at rehab, you and a mental health professional will draw up a relapse prevention plan. As the name suggests, this is a plan designed to minimise your chances of relapsing once you leave the facility.
This will include proactive steps, such as attending support groups going forward, as well as avoiding toxic people and behaviours that might cause you to backslide.
Staying in recovery is a lifelong challenge that requires consistent effort. Rehab will give you the tools that you need to succeed in that challenge.
It’s not possible to give you an exact amount of time upfront, as everyone’s therapy plan will be different. However, a lot of people spend roughly 28 days in rehab, which is enough time to get to the root of a person’s addiction, and to establish new behaviours and a new outlook.
We understand that this is a large amount of time to commit, but try to think about this chunk of time as an investment in yourself. Although it will be painful and challenging, rehab has the potential to change your life immeasurably, for the better.
Timeframe and costing is something that we discuss with complete transparency during our initial telephone consultation.
We hope the above information has answered some questions you might have had about the rehab process. If you’re ready to acknowledge and face your addiction, please give us a call on to talk to a Rehab 4 Addiction advisor.
Once we have found out some more specifics about your case, we can refer you to the right facility as soon as possible.
We understand that you may be hesitant to talk about such a sensitive subject with a stranger – please be assured that your information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and that we are bound by all applicable data protection laws of the UK. Your information is safe with us.
No matter how low you might be feeling in addiction, please know that making a full recovery is entirely possible. Call us today, and we can help you make the first steps into a new life free from drug and alcohol abuse.
