To achieve recovery from addiction, an admission to rehab must be completed. This includes a preliminary assessment, helping to gauge the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction, along with your current physical and mental health condition.

A pre-admission to rehab will involve selecting the right treatment centre to reflect your personal needs and location.

This can be an overwhelming process to complete alone, which is why the admissions team at Addiction Advocates are here to help you.

The Steps of Admission to Rehab

Support Groups

As the admission process can feel daunting, here at Addiction Advocates, we can help you through our services and find the right place for you.

Learn more about our admissions process on this page or feel free to contact our team today for more information on admission to rehab, along with any queries you may have about our approach to finding the most effective treatment plan.

As rehab is a new experience for a large proportion of individuals, here at Addiction Advocates, we appreciate how intimidating this different experience can feel.

Although visiting a rehab facility offers positive recovery steps, it is understandable that you may feel anxious or worried about what the process may involve.

For rehab to be a success, clients must prepare themselves, both physically and mentally. If you’re hoping to visit a rehab facility, we recommend familiarising yourself with the admission to rehab process, along with what to expect once a treatment plan commences.

Please see our breakdown below, or feel free to reach out to our team with your concerns or questions about rehab by calling us on 0800 012 6088 [1].

 

Step 1 – Telephone Assessment

Get In Touch Today

Once you reach out for our support, an initial pre-admission assessment will be required, kickstarting the pre-admission process.

This step is very important and helps our team of addiction specialists understand your substance abuse, medical history, and psychological health greater. This will be completed through a phone call, at your own convenience.

As soon as this assessment has been completed, recommendations for suitable rehab centres and treatment plans will be made, with long-term recovery as the end goal.

Although selecting a private drug and alcohol rehab clinic is in your hands or with the help of family members, our expert team will be available to share effective treatment options which meet your personal needs.

Please remember that requirements and experiences with substance abuse can differ greatly, which means that varying rehab recommendations may be made for the same addiction.

Our specialists are available 24 hours a day to answer any questions or concerns you may have around the admission to rehab steps.

Step 2 – Selecting the Right Rehab Facility

Once a rehab centre has been selected, the admissions process will progress and the date and length of treatment will be decided.

Depending on your selected rehab centre, admission dates will be as soon as possible for treatment. For some individuals, the admission to rehab can be immediate, but access to addiction treatment is always swift at the private rehab centres we work with.

This is a factor to take into consideration when selecting a rehab clinic, as timing is vital to ensure that mental health and the desire to recover are maintained.

Step 3 – Placing Reservations

As rehab clinics are now becoming populated, mainly down to the rise of substance abuse and mental health conditions, it is vital that reservations are placed as soon as you’ve selected your ideal treatment centre.

This pre-admissions process to rehab can be completed with our help. Yet, it is your responsibility to select a date in which you’re happy with, along with paying a deposit.

Once this deposit has been paid, your space at rehab will be secured, and you are ready to begin your personalised rehab programme.

At Addiction Advocates, we are here to help you through our referral services and ensure that all of your requirements for treatment are met.

Likewise, we will continue to recommend the most suitable treatment options for your needs, ensuring these can be met through your selected drug or alcohol rehab facility.

Step 4 – Beginning Your Rehab Programme

As your admission to rehab date approaches, your personal treatment plan will soon begin.

All arrangements should firstly be made with your selected rehab facility to promote convenience and comfort, including transport.

This is very important to ensure that you feel ready and content to progress through your recovery journey while residing at a rehab centre.

Step 5 – Doctors Assessment

Before your treatment plan can begin, a vital step of the admission to rehab process is a doctor’s assessment. Here is where accurate assessments of your current health will be made, ensuring that you’re fit to progress through alcohol or drug rehab.

Likewise, this assessment will secure the effectiveness and safety of selected treatment options which may be chosen for you, ensuring that your treatment plan is suitable, sustainable, and recovery driven.

Both physical and psychiatric assessments will be required to understand the impact that your drug or alcohol addiction has had on your health, along with your capacity to safely complete addiction treatment.

Step 6 – The Start of Addiction Treatment

Once all stages of admission to rehab have been completed successfully, your addiction treatment sessions will commence.

The first step will usually include a medical drug or alcohol detox, helping to prepare the body for a drug or alcohol-free future. In tandem, psychologically driven treatment options will be activated, helping to promote complete recovery opportunities.

From cognitive behavioural therapy and support groups to group therapy and prescription medications, there are a wide range of addiction treatments at hand. However, the most effective and suitable will be recommended for you.

To ensure that these recommendations serve you well through rehab, please be reassured that continuous assessments will be made. This will ensure that rehab is motivating addiction recovery for you.

To begin the admission to the rehab process or to ask any questions regarding the pre-admission steps, feel free to contact our team today.

We can kickstart with a telephone assessment, making realistic recommendations for addiction treatment, followed by a handheld referral service – call us on 0800 012 6088 [2] or fill out our contact form.
