The idea of walking away from drugs or alcohol may cause feelings of dread, worry and stress.

When a drug addiction or alcohol addiction takes over your life, it can be difficult to see a way out. However, most addicts want to overcome their addiction and live a life free of the influence of alcohol and drugs.

An addiction is both a physical and mental health condition. And as with any illness, recovery will require professional, medical assistance.

If you are looking for rehab in East Grinstead, then Addiction Advocates have the knowledge and experience to provide you with a personalised, suitable addiction treatment that will take the most important person – you – into consideration at all points.

We understand that asking for help is difficult. But by reaching out, you are taking that critical first step towards a new life, free of the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you feel ready to remove the shadow of a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction from your life, please call Addiction Advocates today on 0800 012 6088 or text HELP to 83222 and speak to our admissions team about what kind of help we can provide.


The Benefits of Residential Rehab

When you contact us for an initial consultation, and then go through our admissions process, we will perform a thorough examination of both your physical and mental health

At this point, we will likely determine your best course of treatment will be a 28-day commitment to our residential rehabilitation facility in East Grinstead.

Whilst many people baulk at the concept of a month away from their regular life, this is the start of your rehabilitation. Staying in residential accommodation provides you with the safest environment with which to kick-start your recovery journey.

You will have access to effective, proven and reliable treatments that have worked for thousands of people across our network.

However, it is important to consider that your rehab will only prove to be successful if you are ready to quit and are fully committed to the process.

Overcoming a drug addiction or alcohol addiction is one of the most difficult experiences that you will likely encounter, but drug rehab or alcohol rehab can make a monumental difference to your life.

The fundamental reason our clients come to rehab is to take back control of their lives, which can be wrestled away by an addiction.

They may wish to mend relationships with friends or family, and to help their physical and mental health to recover from the damage caused by a sustained period of drug or alcohol abuse.

The prospect of being in a rehab clinic helps some clients to face the emotional trauma of rehab as they will constantly be surrounded by people who care.

You should consider why you wish to go to rehab and store that in your mind throughout your recovery. Post rehab, you will have access to ongoing support as part of your aftercare but as you transition back to your normal life, you must be ready to face the triggers for your addiction that you will inevitably encounter.


Your Recovery

Drug rehab and alcohol rehab is hard – and it can be hard to think about life without drugs and alcohol if you have a dependency on them.

Staying at a local rehab centre is beneficial to your recovery, as it provides a calm, safe environment free from the triggers that usually cause you to abuse drugs or alcohol.

You will be surrounded by professional support from therapists, doctors, psychiatrists and highly experienced professionals at all times.

Your recovery will need to begin with a detoxification. Detox is an unpleasant part of your treatment but is required to break your physical and mental dependency on drugs or alcohol.

However, supported by our team, we can minimise your discomfort by issuing prescription medication to help you overcome the withdrawal symptoms that you will experience.

When you have broken your dependency, you will need to be able to focus on your therapies. We will provide you with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and these sessions provide you with the tools required to change and challenge addictive behaviours and react better to your cravings.

As well as individual and group therapies, we also provide a more holistic approach to therapies and you will be invited to take part in exercise and yoga classes, as well as music therapies and motivational sessions.


Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Once your rehabilitation has been completed, attention will turn to your aftercare. This is an essential part of your treatment. During your therapies, you will be introduced to your peers, who are all experiencing the same treatment that you are.

This is an ideal opportunity to develop a support network, and this is reflected in our aftercare plan.

When you return to your life in East Grinstead, we will direct you to local support groups so you can continue to share your experience, a process that allows you to share your own experiences and learn from others.

You will also have access to regular follow up sessions and a 24-hour helpline. But the most important person in your rehabilitation is you. You will need to show responsibility and apply everything you’ve learned in your therapy sessions.

The first year after your rehab is hard and you will need to show discipline and avoid the triggers for your addiction when possible.

It takes great strength to ask for help. And if you reach out to Addiction Advocates today, there is no waiting list for our services, and we will be able to help you without delay.

If you want to move forward with your life, please call Addiction Advocates today and let us help you to remove addiction from your life once and for all.
