Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Shirebrook

Are you wondering about going to rehab? If you’ve reached a point where you’ve had enough of giving your health and life to drugs and alcohol, then it’s time you made a move towards recovery.

This is a huge step for anyone who has an addiction. Taking drugs or alcohol regularly for any length of time has serious effects on the mind and body.

Accepting it’s time to heal and find services to help you do so shows that you have accepted the magnitude of the challenge you’re about to face.

There’s no denying that quitting a substance is difficult. It will, however, be worth every ounce of effort it takes.

It’s also achievable. Rehab 4 Addiction supports people into drug and alcohol treatments every day. We’ve seen first-hand how people become sober and turn their lives around.

How do I turn my life around?

There are a few things that a person needs to do in order to create a life of abstinence away from the substance.

The first is being honest with yourself about the problem and accepting the problem exists. This is a step that should be recognised.

Give yourself credit. Admitting you have an addiction isn’t always easy. Sometimes this is because you know what has to come next: deciding whether you want to recover or not.

Accessing treatment is the second step. This is made much easier when you have people supporting you. Rehab 4 Addiction exists purely to make this part of the process easier.

Once you have contacted us and we have discussed the addiction, your life, and your goals, we’re able to take care of all the arrangements to get you securely onto a rehab programme.

Next, it’s time to participate fully in a rehab programme. This means being open and willing to change. This will bring out a new side of you.

You’ll have to dig deep in order to overcome the cravings and triggers. With the right support, however, you’ll be able to do it so long as you remain focused and determined.

If you stay at a rehab clinic, you’ll then move towards outpatient services (some people start in outpatient services, depending on requirements. A residential stay isn’t necessary for every person).

This is where you’ll be supported while living in your usual community. You’ll attend and take part in both one-to-one and group sessions.

Going forward into the future, you’ll likely remain in contact with a local 12 Step group. This, for thousands of people throughout the UK, helps them to remain steadfast on the road to recovery.

Throughout all phases of treatment, you’ll be guided and will get ideas on how to make a sober lifestyle sustainable in the long run.

This will mean implementing long-term changes to keep you on track. To start with, it might mean cutting ties with some friendship groups.

As isolating as this might be, you’ll start to make friends elsewhere through 12 Step groups and developing hobbies and interests.

You’ll have been supported to come up with goals you want to achieve. This might be around a hobby, or education, a career, your family, or home.

By refocusing your energy on new areas, you’ll create a new purpose and find it easier to stay off the substance.

Can I be treated for drugs and alcohol if I have a mental health problem?

It’s very common that people who have drug and alcohol misuse issues also have mental health problems. When you enter a rehabilitation programme through a private clinic, this is addressed.

The professionals in these settings understand and respect the fact that these two illnesses usually come hand-in-hand.

With this in mind, treatments are provided to support recovery for your mental health too. Psychological treatments provide a large part of the programme you’ll receive.

To get the best results from them, it’s important to be open and honest with both yourself and your therapist.

It can be very challenging for some people to talk about things that have haunted them for many years. Others just find it incredibly hard to talk.

It’s not for you to worry about that now. The therapists you have are highly trained and adapt to each person’s individual needs. There are also a variety of methods of communication.

As well as psychological therapies, there are alternative therapies. Some people might find this more comfortable for expressing difficult feelings and events.

You might be interested to know that you don’t have to be a brilliant musician or artist to express yourself brilliantly through art and music.

When should you go to rehab?

Whenever you go to rehab it will be challenging. The truth is, the longer you leave it, the more time your body and mind has to deteriorate due to the toxins in alcohol and drugs.

Even if you don’t feel ready, you have to remember that if you leave it too long serious damage to your brain, vital organs and mental health will unravel.

That would make rehab even more difficult because you’d have much more to address and heal.

There’s always hope. Wherever you are on your recovery journey, the body has an incredible capacity to heal.

If you remove the toxic substances and instead fill your body with water, a well-balanced diet, good thoughts and positive energy, as well as exercise, you can turn your life around.

Are there treatment services in the Shirebrook area?

There are many options for drug and alcohol treatment in the Shirebrook area. When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction we can discuss these with you.

There are options further afield, but we highly recommend staying local as a rule.

This is because it makes family therapy an easier option and also proves to you that you can be sober in the area you usually drink or take the drugs.

The goal of abstinence is where you’re aiming and you can do this in Shirebrook.

What is the next step?

Contact Rehab 4 Addiction and after a conversation, we’ll explain the most useful rehab options to suit your needs. We look forward to speaking with you.
