Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Cannock
Every year, many individuals suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction attempt recovery without professional help. They choose to undergo home detoxes and try to abstain from the substance on their own.
The hard truth is, many of these people fail to reach a full recovery alone, and some even fall deeper into their drug and alcohol addiction as a result. This is unfortunately very common; detoxes at home are many times performed unsafely, people trying to quit remain exposed to triggers in their home environment leading them to turn to drink and drugs once more, and many lack the vital network of friends and family that could have helped them through this fragile time.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Our advisory and referral services here at OK Rehab can help you find an appropriate rehabilitation centre that suits your needs and can ensure you receive personalised treatment and partake in particular therapy sessions that will get you on the right path to recovery. You don’t have to suffer in silence.
Finding a drug and alcohol rehab
If you are at the stage where you have admitted to yourself that an addiction is present in your life, now is the time to find a rehab, so you can start to heal.
Luckily for you, that’s our job! We take over the hard part of this process for you, as we understand this time is already difficult and stressful enough without the added pressure of searching for treatment.
All we need from you is honesty. To get more information on you as a patient, and to help us recommend only the best treatment and rehab options to you, we first have to assess you and your addiction. This will be done firstly over the phone, there is a second assessment that will take place when you arrive at rehab, which is performed by a doctor to further gauge your psychological and physical health, but this initial pre-admission assessment is easily done by calling.
We may discuss several aspects of your addiction, such as the length of time you have been using drink or drugs, how severe your addiction is, and the substance/substances you have used. We may also cover personal information such as your age, weight, personality, and what kind of treatment you believe you need.
All of this data, which remains 100% confidential, will be used to narrow down what methods of treatment will be necessary for you, and where the best place for you will be.
Thanks to our speedy referral services and no long waiting list, we’ll have you placed in the perfect rehab in no time, meaning you can start your journey to recovery with the stresses of finding a drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock behind you.
For any further queries you may have, we’ve listed the main and most frequently asked questions below, but feel free to contact OK Rehab today if you can’t find what you’re looking for here.
Is rehab worth it?
Yes. Rehab, especially a residential rehab experience, can be extremely beneficial for those suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction. Most individuals that attempt to recover alone at home wind up failing to do so, but with rehab, the chances of a full, long-lasting recovery are much higher.
In rehab, you are removed from your home environment, and whilst this may seem daunting, it actually aids recovery from addiction quite a lot. This is because most addictions or drug and alcohol abuse problems begin because of something triggering them at home.
This may be work stresses, relationship troubles, pressuring friends, traumatic events in your past or present, or a dysfunctional family. It is very rare that addiction occurs out of nowhere, there is almost always an emotional or physical trigger of some sort, and it’s almost always at home. Detaching yourself from this possibly toxic environment means you are less likely to reach for drink or drugs as a response to these triggers.
Choosing to recover at a rehab also means you can rest assured that any processes you go through will be safely carried out by a professional. Detoxes and other treatments you undergo will be overseen by medical experts, and you will be closely monitored to make sure you’re reacting well to them. If you are not in the know about these dangerous methods of treatment, it could cause serious problems or even death.
Rehab is in your best interest if you’re looking for a successful and long-term recovery.
How long will I be in rehab?
No patient’s journey to recovery is the exact same. Due to the assessments, we perform that decide your treatment options and personal rehab experience, every individual we deal with will receive different care, and will therefore need different amounts of time with us.
However, the average amount of time spent in rehab, and the time that we recommend you set aside for your rehab journey, is around 28 days. This is ample time for you to go through a detox, push through the withdrawal stage, come to terms with your addiction through therapy and counselling sessions, and prepare for life on the outside.
Whether you need more or less time than this allotted 28 days is decided by several factors that are sometimes out of your control, so there is no shame if you need longer than the average, and also you are not cured simply because you needed less time in rehab than others.
What happens after?
Leaving rehab can be just as scary as entering, as the fear of the unknown often takes over. Rest assured that during your time in a drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock we will have prepped you fully for life back home.
You will most likely receive a personalised aftercare treatment plan, detailing the coping techniques and other important information you will have learned in rehab. It will contain all the necessary knowledge and support you will need to thrive and continue your journey to recovery at home, but if you do need any more assistance, we are only a phone call away on 0800 326 5559.
Some patients may need to return periodically to the rehab clinic for check-ins, additional treatment, or just a friendly face, and that is completely fine. Whilst no one’s road to recovery is the same, the goal usually is, and we can help you reach yours no matter what.
