At OK Rehab, we aim to help everyone fighting addiction, no matter their situation.
We do this through various avenues and whatever you want to access from us is ultimately up to you.
Even if you’re just looking for advice and not necessarily a full treatment plan, our helpline will be open for discussion on any issue related to drug or alcohol addiction.
However, if you are looking for a full path to recovery, or more realistically full management of your addiction, we can help with that too.
Through both an initial conversation and a formal assessment, we can craft a treatment plan specifically to suit you.

Looking for short or long-term recovery
Before you get started on any treatment, it’s important that you consider your long-term goals.
What do you want to get out of rehab? Consider making a list of things you’d like to achieve.
Breaking the whole thing into pieces like this can make the whole thing seem more manageable.
Overall, to get the most out of this process, you need to be committed to long-term recovery.
You also need to understand that management, not a full cure, is what is realistic when it comes to addiction recovery.
Addiction is a lifelong battle, with recovery often being a long and hard journey. If you put everything you can into it, you can move towards a better, addiction-free life.
On the other hand, if you go into this only seeking short-term recovery, you won’t get as much out of it.
The results of treatment like that will only last so long.
If you’re at a severe enough level of addiction, professionally supported drug and alcohol rehab in Tottenham will be best for you.
Having said this, every situation is different.
Some people in earlier stages of addiction might not want something as drastic as that.
If you don’t feel like you’re at a stage where you want to commit to a full process, that is completely fine.
Alongside residential rehab services, we can help you to access outpatient treatments, simple talking therapies and support groups.

How long will drug and alcohol rehab take?
The time commitment needed to get lasting results is also why we tend to skim over discussions of time, or how long rehab will take.
If you go forward towards treatment with a ticking clock playing in your head, that noisy clock will distract you from healing in the long run.
Generally, the time rehab takes will depend on two main factors: how severe your addiction is and how well you respond to the treatment you receive.
It could take any time from a few weeks to nine months.

What kind of support will be available to me through drug and alcohol rehab in Tottenham?
The short answer is any kind of support that you need.
As we said previously, we can offer you advice or give you access to more formal treatment.
It’s also worth noting that we’re here to support the loved ones of those struggling with addiction too.
We can give you advice, or even help you to organise an intervention if that’s something you feel is necessary

Should I go for inpatient or outpatient treatment?
At risk of sounding dramatic or putting too much pressure on one thing, this is one of the most pivotal decisions in the whole process.
You’ll mostly encounter the same treatments through both.
However, the environment in which you receive them can make a big difference.
In a majority of cases, especially those with moderate to severe dependency, residential rehab will be recommended.
It works better for more severe addictions as it’s a lot more intensive, placing the recovered in an environment of total support.
You’re also more likely to be kept on track in a residential rehab space. This is a level of focus that a lot of people in this situation need, completely seperate from triggers and temptation.
Finally, it can do some people a lot of good to get away and reset.
This is especially true if you’re coming into treatment from a toxic home environment. But even if you’re not, getting away to a new space could be the restart that you need.
On the other hand, some people might feel more comfortable being close to home.
That’s where outpatient treatment comes in. If you choose this option, you will stay at home while you go through treatment and will make regular visits to a centre.
This doesn’t work for everyone, as it puts more onus onto the person in treatment overall. You’ll need to organise your own healing a lot more and be more motivated to do so.
Most of all, you’ll need to keep yourself on track, to a far greater extent than you would at a residential centre.
But if you have a less severe addiction, or are in the earlier stages, going away somewhere might not be necessary.

Facing up to your past through mental health treatments
Now we’re going to discuss probably one of the most intimidating parts of the whole process.
That is facing up to past traumas in mental health treatments.
It’s natural to want to hide away at this part of the process.
But no matter what you’ve experienced, bottling up your feelings is never a healthy thing to do.
Therapy and addiction counselling will help you to overcome these hurdles.
On a similar note, overcoming fear of the unknown is also very important when you start the rehab process, as it can really hold you back overall.
This is something that can be dealt with through experience and research.
And the latter is of course something you can do on your own before you even start on any professional help.
Reading this page is a really good start, but going further than that, you should also look over every treatment you’re considering, look into potential withdrawal symptoms and every organisation you’re considering.
Then line it all up with your specific addiction and circumstances.
You don’t have to make up your mind on anything right now.
But going in with a good view of the whole thing and an idea of what your journey will look like can be immeasurably useful.
