Anyone can become an addict, but many live with an addiction in complete denial for some time before accepting their illness.

What Causes Addiction?
You may think that your addiction is your fault, maybe you feel you deserve this somehow, or that you’re not worth treating. This is all untrue. Addiction is not your fault.
There are many reasons why people become addicts, but most of the time it stems from previous experiences in your life that have lead to negative outcomes. Mental health is a prime example of this. If you’re suffering with anxiety or depression and you’re either unaware of this at the time, or too ashamed to seek treatment, quite often these problems can lead you to abuse substances as a way of self healing.
Sometimes addiction can be more deep rooted. It can stem back to your family and upbringing. If you’ve grown up in an environment where addiction was common place, or your social circle includes many addicts, you may be more susceptible to addiction yourself.
In other circumstances, a trauma you experience, or simply high levels of stress, maybe through work or family can be enough to lead someone into addiction.
Whatever your own experiences are, at Rehab Clinics Group we’ll address your underlying causes of addiction to help you fully recover and maintain sobriety.
Upon arrival at our drug and alcohol rehab in Guildford, you’ll be give a tour of the facilities and grounds and given the chance to settle into your accommodation. We understand that when you reach out for help the response needed is one of urgency, which is why we always endeavour to admit you as soon as possible to our centres. It can be as quick as 48 hours in some cases. With us, there are no waiting lists and long waits.
Once your settled, you’ll undergo a medical assessment to determine your physical and psychological health and a Recovery Action Plan will be created by our team with your assistance.
The first step is drug and alcohol detoxification. All harmful substances need to be removed from your body in order for the treatment to proceed. Withdrawal symptoms are common at this stage, but our medical team will assist you every step of the way.
Once you’ve completed your detox you’ll start your therapy treatment.
The therapy sessions will get to the root cause of your addiction to help you address these issues first and foremost. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of your addiction and develop strategies to help manage cravings and triggers in day-to-day scenarios. You’ll develop more positive habits and a healthier lifestyle to enable you to achieve long term recovery.
Benefits Of Residential Addiction Treatment
Maybe your doctor has warned you of pressing health issues caused by your addiction, or your life is slowly falling apart, or perhaps you’re treading a dangerous path trying to fund your addiction. Whatever your current situation, seeking help and treatment is vital to your recovery and future prospects.
Outpatient treatment is often considered the most ideal form of treatment. Attending a detox clinic during the day and returning home in the evenings and weekends, may seem like the easiest solution, but it’s one of the most challenging. Remaining surrounded by the negative influences that drive your addiction won’t help your recovery and can lead to relapse.
Residential addiction treatment provides distance between you and your toxic lifestyle. With space to reflect and heal, you can develop more positive lifestyle habits to help you readjust to life outside of the centre and maintain long term sobriety.
What To Expect From Rehab
You may be picturing rehab as a sterile hospital setting, or maybe like a prison that locks you in and monitors your every move. This could not be further from the truth.
Our drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres are safe and supportive environments that are designed and furnished to create a homely feel that welcomes you upon arrival. With friendly and supportive staff, alongside a range of holistic treatment options, it’ll not feel like a serious and sterile location, but instead a safe and supportive place to recover.

Rehab is not just about treatment, but also about building a more positive lifestyle and this cannot be achieved without happiness and laughter. With this in mind, we provide groups activities, such as movie nights and quizzes, at the centre to bring everyone together.
