Find the Best Full-Time Rehab Clinic Near You, with Help4Addiction.
Finding the best rehab clinic for you is a bit of a challenge. When you make the decision to go through rehab for a drink or drug addiction, the last thing you need is to be overwhelmed by the hundreds of rehab clinics on offer. However, the team here at Help4Addiction are specialists in narrowing those choices down.
While many services simply direct you to the nearest rehab centre, we ask a series of questions which help get a handle on your likes and dislikes. Once done, we can put you in touch with the people who best match your drug or alcohol rehab needs. This process lets us determine what treatment methods you are most likely to respond well to. In finding this out, we are then able to place you in a rehab clinic that has the best possible chance of helping you to get off – and stay off – drugs or alcohol.
Inpatient rehab clinics are those which you move into for the period of time you need to break free of the habits that trapped you in your addictive cycle. If you can challenge these habits head on while you are in a medically supervised facility, you can then transfer these skills to your real life, once you return. Inpatient rehab clinics offer the highest percentage of successful recoveries when compared to other rehab styles, and this is though to be due to the fact that you are removed from both the triggers that made you turn to drink or drugs to begin with, and your means by which you attain them.
If inpatient rehab care sounds like exactly what you need out of life, then we are more than happy to help you find the one that best matches your wants and needs. To get started in finding the right inpatient rehab clinic for you today, call 0203 955 7700, where one of our trained advisors can help you further your cause. We are a friendly, welcoming bunch, who treat you with nothing but the utmost in non-judgemental respect – so call us as soon as you can, and let’s work together to get you off drink or drugs.
Can I Get Inpatient Mental Health Treatment?
Yes, is the short answer. The longer answer is that the inpatient meaning for a mental health patient is slightly different. Ideally, those suffering from emotional or mental issues should seek outpatient help. However, it might be that you are moved into inpatient mental health care to make sure you don’t cause yourself harm. Often when you are enlisted into inpatient services for mental health issues, it is because you are no longer judged capable of being responsible for your own actions. In the event of inpatient treatment for borderline personality disorder in the UK, for example, you might well be sent to a rehab clinic under the doctor’s orders.
Inpatient psychiatric treatment is nothing to be ashamed of. When you are suffering from a mental health condition you did nothing to deserve it. You have a hormonal or chemical imbalance in your brain that means you do not think the same way as other people do. Unfortunately, inpatient treatment for anxiety and depression, or for any other mental health problem, is sometimes the only way to get yourself on the road to recovery. Often, clients will suffer from poor mental health their whole lives – but if you can learn to manage the condition, it isn’t the same barrier to a healthy, productive life that it is if you never learn to manage it… and that’s what inpatient mental health treatment helps you with.
In the same way as a drug or alcohol addiction can be treated and the person is considered ‘in recovery’, a mental health patient is considered to be ‘in recovery’ when they start to manage their day-to-day lives in a way that works around their ongoing condition. We use the same terminology because the psychology behind the two are remarkably similar. When you are a drug or alcohol addict, you will likely always be a drug and alcohol addict – even when you are not using. Until the day that you can be around your substance and not abuse it, you will still be an addict. With those suffering from mental ill health, they will always be suffering until the day they can operate as a ‘normal’ person might behave, in situations they previously found incomprehensible.
You can receive inpatient services for mental health on a voluntary basis through a rehab clinic. They will use a variety of therapies, distractions, and even medications, that will help you manage your mental health condition in a positive, productive way. You can then take these tools and memorise them, bringing them out to use them at the times when life gets difficult and you don’t think you can manage.
Therapies Used In Inpatient Mental Health/ Drug and Alcohol Rehab Services
Another area where inpatient treatment and drug and alcohol recovery treatments cross over is in the therapies. Whether you go for private rehab, NHS rehab, or a dayhab centre, you will receive the same therapies or choice of therapy types.
Some of the therapy types you can expect in rehab as an inpatient include:
- Group Sessions – group therapy uses peer support to share similar situations and benefit from one another’s experience. While a skilled therapist can help you to combat the big personal problems associated with addiction and mental health issues, a group helps you figure out how to handle life situations without resorting to drink, drug addiction, or even to bad neurological patterns of behaviour that haven’t helped in the past.
- CBT – cognitive behavioural therapy looks at all the ways you react to things, and talks about how to stop you from reacting destructively. Through a series of talking and the application of different ways of thinking, you can change your whole outset on life. This therapy is particularly prevalent in the NHS, where it is often used in the treatment of psychiatric disorders.
- DBT – dialectical behavioural therapy discusses your behaviours, aiming to understand why you think the way you do. If a problem has its roots in your childhood, or has some other explanation, this talking therapy helps you explore the way you have been taught to manage those issues. By re-examining the things that make you act the way you do, and by fully discussing them, you can process information on a healthier level.
- MI – motivational interviewing concentrates on the areas of your personality where you excel. By giving you consistently positive reinforcements through interview-style sessions, you can slowly build up a sense of self that doesn’t rely on drink or drugs to grow.
- Counselling with a drink/drug counsellor – counselling differs from therapy in that the person you unload on will have little to no input into what you are saying. The counsellor’s role is more of a listening one, although a drink or drug counsellor might give you small insights into how your substance abuse problem is affecting your behaviour.
- Other Therapies – each and every treatment plan is different, and each and every rehab clinic caters to different disorders. Your clinic might opt for holistic therapies like acupuncture or massage, or they might explore mindfulness options, outdoor activity, or sports therapy. All are valid and all will help you, but some will help you more than others, depending on your likes and dislikes.
The different ranges of therapy available are all the more reason why you should turn to a service like ours, to help you make that all-important decision. If you have a favoured therapy or activity, we will find it in a rehab clinic near you. So whether you want to be seen as an inpatient for alcohol abuse, or whether you want to attend inpatient services for an emotional disorder… call Help4Addiction, on 0203 955 7700.
Can You Detox from drugs and Alcohol as an Inpatient?
If you want to go through detox, you can do this through an at-home alcohol detox kit, if you are eligible. However, not everyone is. If you drink more than 30 units of alcohol a day, we cannot accept you. Likewise, if you don’t have someone who is able to stay with you for the entire time it takes to detox, you will not be eligible. In the event that you are not eligible for our at home detox kits for alcoholics, then you will have to go through detox as an inpatient.
Drug or alcohol detox as an inpatient is the safest possible way for you to quit drinking or get off drugs. You will be stopping substance abuse in the safest way you can, with full medical supervision and full access to all the therapies they can give you. You might even be able to detox in the same facility as that you then stay on for rehab in. In some instances, detox is already factored into the cost of rehab. However you decide to go through detox, know that quitting drug abuse is well within your grasp. Know that giving up drinking is something you are capable of. We believe in you and you should, too. Call us now on 0203 955 7700 to make a start on your own recovery.
Should I Choose A Private Inpatient Rehab Clinic?
There isn’t a huge amount of difference between an inpatient or an outpatient rehab clinic. the few areas where they tend to stray from one another mostly include holistic treatments, leisure time facilities, and busyness. A private rehab clinic will be more upscale, likely to cater to your every need, and will be richer in decoration. If you can afford to, there is no reason not to go into alcohol rehab in a private inpatient rehab clinic. If you can’t afford it, then you aren’t missing any essential components needed for you to make a full recovery.
In short, private rehab is like a big house. It is great to have all the extra rooms – but you can only be in one of those rooms at a time, so the addition of more is a little excessive. Nevertheless, we have high-end rehab clinics in our pages just as we have minimal rehab clinics. To find the best one for you, call us today or contact us through our online consultation service.
Drug and Alcohol Help for Addiction from a Rehab Clinic Near You
Whether you need alcohol rehab, can’t get off drugs, or want to seek out the best inpatient rehab clinic near you, we can help. Our founder was an addicted once, but he fought back and eventually overcame it. It is our belief that if he can do it, then there is a chance for you, too. He noticed how difficult it was to get into the rehab clinic he needed and set out to make sure other addicts didn’t have that same issue. When you finally decide to break free of the cycle of addiction, you end up overwhelmed by the millions of rehab clinics there are out there. This can be overwhelming, even triggering, for some addicts. It can do so much damage that you lose what little confidence you had to begin with – sending you away from the path to recovery and leaving you worse off than you already were.
It is the most important thing in the world that you take the time to recover from your addiction. Whatever your vice is, it is slowly decaying the rest of your life. As you allow the addiction to eat away at all you hold dear, you gradually become less and less of a person. It is only by seizing back control that you can overcome this. So get that help, talk to your GP, call Help4Addiction on 0203 955 7700 and let us guide you towards a life raft. You have the power to change your life for the better – in fact, nobody can do it but you… so call us and let us guide you towards better life choices. We are only a phone call away.
