Around a million people in the UK are thought to suffer from addiction, and with so many cuts to the NHS, it can be hard to find drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough that doesn’t come with a long wait. That’s why, if you have a drug or alcohol addiction, the Rehab Clinics Group can help. We have a range of clinics across the UK, easily accessed from Peterborough, or can arrange a rehab stay for you in Spain. We can often get you into a clinic within 48 hours, so there’s no delay.
Addiction affects every part of your life, but the good news is that it can be overcome with the right help. The Rehab Clinics Group offers a free helpline, with an initial assessment available, so you can decide whether this type of treatment is right for you.
Getting help for your addiction
We understand it can be extremely difficult to identify when you need to get professional help, especially to admit that you need alcohol or drug rehab. Addiction is a disease, and part of the disease is denial. Denial gives you poor judgement and makes you do things you wouldn’t normally do. While you may still be in the fog of denial, the fact that you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough is a good sign, as it means you are actively thinking about getting help.
There can be many signs that you have an addiction that requires treatment. Perhaps you’ve been hiding your drinking or drug using habits from loved ones, you’ve lied about where you’ve been, or you’ve stolen or sold things to keep up your drug or alcohol addiction. When you’re deep in denial, it’s easy to see these things as normal, but once you go through drug or alcohol rehab in Peterborough, you start to see that they’re not. Those who have loved ones with addiction can also call us for some free advice, to see if one of our clinics might be a good fit for them.
Going into inpatient rehab
The Rehab Clinics Group focuses solely on rehab centres, which are solely inpatient facilities. You may be wondering whether an outpatient treatment programme would work for you, but in our experience, many people with addictions find it hard to fight the temptation to relapse when things get tough. When you are going through withdrawal symptoms or simply having a bad day, it’s better to be in inpatient rehab where you have support workers to take care of you, rather than leaving the care up to your loved ones.
Why you should consider drug and alcohol rehab
It’s common for those with an addiction to put off rehab for many years, only agreeing to go in the end because they have hit rock bottom. But you don’t have to wait for your addiction to become severe to start seeking rehab clinics. As a disease, addiction is often more straightforward to treat in its early stages, so why wait until it gets worse?
There are several advantages to choosing an inpatient clinic. Firstly, you get medical assistance when you detox, which can be in the form of prescription medication to help with the side effects. Detoxing can, in some cases, cause medical problems, which in severe cases can lead to shakes, seizures and other withdrawal symptoms. In these cases, it’s better to be around people who are medically trained and can get you help as soon as possible.
You also get a wider choice of treatment options when you go to an inpatient clinic. While the rehab treatment offered by our clinics can vary a little from place to place, it’s of the highest standard and includes scientifically proven methods such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, also known as CBT, group therapy and workshops, alongside holistic therapies from mindfulness to yoga sessions. This gives you the best possible chance of a long-term recovery when you leave our clinics.
Life after substance abuse
It can be quite a shock to leave one of our rehab clinics and have to go back to day to day life, without the use of drugs or alcohol. That’s why, everyone who completes a 28-day programme at one of our clinics gets a year of free aftercare. When you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Peterborough, it’s important to think about the long term and life after rehab, which is why we offer such a long aftercare period to help prevent relapses.
Our teams also offer plenty of help and support to those coming out of rehab, whether it’s getting them back into the workplace, helping them find new housing or putting other support in place to keep them living their sober life.
