Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Scunthorpe
Unfortunately, many individuals dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction still feel that rehab is not a necessary option for treatment, or that it is only appropriate for the most serious of cases. This is far from the truth, but sadly due to misconceptions about rehab perpetuated by TV shows and films, many still believe it is.
Here at OK Rehab, we know that these myths surrounding drug and alcohol rehabs are in fact just that – myths. We have seen first-hand how rehab can change lives for the better, and not just the lives of the individuals struggling with addiction, but for their friends and families too.
We have seen people who were living with severe addictions learn to live without drink or drugs and thrive back home after a residential rehab programme. Furthermore, we’ve seen individuals who were in denial about the very existence of their addiction reach full recoveries.
Through this experience, we have grown and continued to learn lessons about what methods of addiction treatment work and which do not. Now we use this knowledge to help those being destroyed by addiction find the help they need.
So, if you’re someone looking for a drug and alcohol rehab in Scunthorpe, we are the ones to call.

Rehab versus other addiction treatment options
When it comes to addiction treatment, there are many options available that may seem cheaper, quicker, or easier than a stay in rehab.
Outpatient treatment, where you reside at home but visit a clinic for weekly treatment, at-home recovery options such as home detoxes, or even simply ignoring the existence of addiction in your life. All are options that you have undoubtedly considered on your road to recovery.
However, not all options can offer the same benefits and chances of successful recovery as rehab, especially a residential rehab programme, can.
When attempting to withdraw from drugs or alcohol alone at home or even when undergoing outpatient treatment, you can run into a number of challenges. Staying in an environment that may have been one of the causes of your addiction when trying to recover is almost impossible, as even if you succeed in detoxing the body of the substance, the emotional and mental triggers remain. This can lead to a relapse as soon as you are experiencing unpredictable withdrawal symptoms, and with no professional team around you to stop you from reaching for the substance once more, you are more likely to do so.
In a rehab setting, this is never an option. You are not just treated physically, but we also focus on the psychological aspects of addiction and work to get to the root causes of your substance use so that we can help heal them. When you are inevitably experiencing withdrawal symptoms from a detox, you are not only surrounded by a team of highly-trained medical staff that will support you through this phase but you are also prescribed medication to help ease these symptoms.
For these and for many more reasons, a residential rehab programme is the only option if you are searching for a successful and long-term recovery. No matter the circumstances of your addiction, whether you are new to substance use or have experienced addiction for years, rehab is beneficial to all who seek treatment.
How we can help find you a drug and alcohol rehab in Scunthorpe
If you have decided on rehab as your route to recovery, you may now be realising that securing a place at a drug and alcohol rehab near you is not as easy as you thought.
This is where we here at OK Rehab step in.
We take over the difficult part of searching prospective rehabs in your local area and consider all possible addiction treatment options, ensuring you end up receiving the best care that is suited to your needs.
We do this by assessing you and your addiction early on in the admissions process. We perform two simple and easy assessments of your personality, addiction (the severity of your personal situation, the length of time you have been using and the substance/substances you have used), and your mental and physical health. One of these assessments takes place over the phone, and the other is performed by a doctor when you arrive at your chosen rehab centre.
Through these assessments, we can determine what your personal needs are, where will be best for your treatment to take place, and what exact methods of treatment will be beneficial to you. With the information gained, we can also begin to create a bespoke treatment plan that you will follow when in rehab. This plan will be unique to you and crafted with you and your recovery in mind.
During this process, we can also discuss any special requirements you may have that concern your treatment – anything from the location you would prefer your rehab to be, to your personal financial situation. No matter your circumstances or budget, we are here to find you the help you need.
After we have determined the most appropriate rehab centres and courses of treatment, we will pass these recommendations onto you. If you are content with the choices we have made for you then the admission process can continue, with you being placed in your chosen rehab in no time. There are no long waiting lists with OK Rehab, so you can rest assured you will receive the care and attention you need as soon as possible.
It will then be up to you to begin your journey to recovery, though we will be on hand every step of the way should you need us.
Rehab can seem like a huge and daunting step to take, but we assure you that it is a necessary one.
If you have any questions, or would like to begin an enquiry for yourself or a loved one, please do not hesitate to call us on 0800 326 5559.
