Addiction is a big problem in the UK – not only due to the difficulty in getting help but also due to the majority of people who do not know where to start in seeking help.
In 2020 alone, the area of Lancashire reported over 100 deaths related to drug poisoning. This number is not a true reflection of the severity of addiction problems due to the additional thousands suffering every day across the UK.
Breaking the cycle of addiction is incredibly challenging, not just for the individual but also for the friends and family around them.
With OK Rehab, we consider all who may be affected by this problem and strive to find the best suitable and appropriate care for those individuals.
Addiction treatment programmes and centres in Fulwood
For many people suffering from addiction, finding the right help at the right time is a challenge. With the sheer number of services offered across the UK, navigating and summarising the different options can be an extremely long process.
Preparing both physically and mentally for rehab is a big part of the process. Thinking that you are unprepared for rehab is a positive sign as you are aware of the changes that may need to be made.
Without these necessary preparations and the doubts of readiness, treatment programmes and rehab centres are much less likely to be effective. Full motivation is required to successfully progress through different treatment programmes and also reduce the risk of relapse after returning to life in Fulwood.
For many, entering a specialised rehab centre is the optimal choice for recovery and rehabilitation.

Preparing for rehab
As mentioned previously, motivation and having the urge to recover are the two key factors that are most influential on rehabilitative care success.
This includes both physical and psychological factors before entering a rehabilitation centre such as mindset, withdrawal, and willingness.
Telling if you are prepared for rehab can be difficult, but several factors will heavily influence this feeling. For example, if you know that you have a long history of drug and alcohol abuse and the effects of this disease are becoming more and more prevalent, then this is a strong sign to be admitted to rehab.
Alternatively, if you are closer to the initiation of such behaviours (addiction, drug and alcohol abuse), then it may be more helpful to research alternative treatments such as individual counselling or group therapy.
If you still have questions about your readiness, it may be helpful to check out this list of steps before entering a rehabilitation centre:
- Recognition and acknowledgement of your problem with addiction. Serious or significant changes to your lifestyle are a good indicator of this
- Research suitable/available treatments. This could include the most common addiction treatments and other factors such as withdrawal symptoms
- Initiate conversations with friends and/or family about your issues and concerns with your health and wellbeing
- Begin to consider addiction treatments as a long-term solution. Rehabilitation is not a short process and may take a long period before significant progress is made
- Fully commit to the idea and the existence of rehabilitation – without it, rehabilitation is considerably more difficult and motivation to recover is essential
- Check and organise different resources to support you throughout your rehabilitation journey – contact OK Rehab for additional advice and support
After considering each element of this list, you should have a better idea of what you are looking for and expecting in a rehabilitation centre and/or treatment programme.
As written above, if you have any further questions resulting from this list or any other concerns relating to addiction, then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team on 0800 326 5559 today to ask us anything.
No question is a stupid question, and you will never be judged or made to feel ashamed by your current or previous situations.
Who benefits from drug and alcohol rehab in Fulwood?
Individuals from all walks of life can benefit and take advantage of the different services offered through OK Rehab.
As specified before, different individuals benefit from different types of care, and an important element of treatment programmes is their specialisation.
The only factor that influences an individual’s success rate from rehabilitation is their motivation, so anyone with the drive and determination to recover will be able to properly experience rehab centres and their wealth of support and care.
In most cases, residential rehabilitation is the most effective form of recovery. This refers specifically to those who stay in a rehabilitation centre as their primary residence throughout rehabilitation.
However, residential rehab is not always the best option, especially if it is close to triggering environments or people. In this case, OK Rehab will supply a wealth of other options including rehab in other areas of the country as well as individual treatment programmes as mentioned previously such as individual counselling.
Local triggers, both physical and mental are best avoided during the process of rehabilitation. This is one of the many benefits of residential rehab as the individual is allowed to live in an environment away from these factors.
By focusing solely on recovery, the individual is more likely to maintain motivation, progress through treatment programmes, and complete a course of rehabilitative care.
Aftercare in Fulwood
Regardless of the different types of care that are available through the different centres and programmes, most centres and treatment providers also offer an extensive aftercare programme.
Aftercare refers to the help and support that is received after partaking in addiction treatment programmes (whether in a centre or not).
In the large majority of cases, this care will be provided as part of your treatment. If this is not the case, or if you feel as though you need additional care, then please do not forget OK Rehab’s 24/7 support services.
Members of our team are available at any time to discuss any query regarding addiction.
Whether you are seeking aftercare support, or if you are considering entering a rehabilitation centre for the first time, our wealth of experience allows us to provide professional advice for any situation.
Call us today on 0800 326 5559 to start your rehabilitation journey and see how we can assist you.
