Are you feeling desperate and like you have nowhere to turn? If the answer is yes, then Addiction Advocates are here to help you take back control of your life.
We help thousands of people annually, in Feltham and across Great Britain, to overcome a substance addiction. Our addiction treatment combines rehabilitation and detoxification to help you to have a long-term recovery.
The first stage in your recovery is acceptance and overcoming denial. You may tell yourself repeatedly that you can stop your consumption to excess whenever you like and you do not need professional help, or that your level of addiction is so small that you can handle it yourself. This mindset is dangerous and if you have reached that point, you should seek professional help.
Our addiction treatment is geared around long-term recovery, not just a month or two off drink or drugs. Addiction Advocates can help you to stay free of drugs or alcohol for the rest of your life – but you first must accept that you need help.
We appreciate that is difficult, but when you are ready, we are ready to provide drug rehab and alcohol rehab to help you kick your habit for good.
If you have been using the internet to search for “rehab UK” or “rehab near me” then this is a sign you are ready to ask for our help. We are available 24 hours a day if you call 0800 012 6088 or text HELP to 83222.
Rehab in Feltham
When you contact Addiction Advocates, we will perform an initial assessment over the telephone. This allows us to establish the extent of your addiction – which substances you’ve become addicted to, and the levels of consumption.
We will also take this opportunity to discuss your budget. Whilst residential rehab on a private basis is not cheap, there are several benefits to this method of treatment.
Unlike NHS solutions, there’s no wait for our treatment and we can begin without delay. Every day is of the essence when you’re suffering from an addiction and receiving drug and alcohol rehab in a timely fashion is vital.
When you visit your doctor, they will be able to provide basic advice and refer to you receive addiction treatment on the NHS. This may take several months due to long waiting lists – can you afford for your addiction to worsen in that time?
Additionally, NHS treatment is conducted on an outpatient basis. This means you are discharged from rehab at the evening and over the weekend. This allows opportunities to fall prey to old habits and visit people or places that are a bad influence.
Whereas with residential rehab, Addiction Advocates are able to provide you with drug rehab and alcohol rehab in the safety of our rehab centre, where we can help to keep your sobriety on track.
NHS treatment does not consider the reasons why you have developed an addiction in the first place. Their treatment programmes are mass produced and not tailored for individual requirements.
With Addiction Advocates, you can be assured we will not only treat your addiction, we will identify any underlying mental health conditions that may have caused it to begin with, minimising the risk of a future relapse.
Why not call us for a no obligation consultation to discuss your budget and your recovery goals?
When you arrive at our rehab centres, we will perform a thorough physical and mental assessment of your health before kicking off your treatment with a trip to our detox clinic.
Most of our clients come into our care requiring a period of detoxification. Detox is the process of removing toxins from your body that have built up due to a period of drug or alcohol abuse.
Many clients will have tried their own detox at home only to give in due to the pain and discomfort caused by withdrawal symptoms.
This is the body’s reaction to being denied the substances to which it has become addicted. Some symptoms are mild, some can be very serious and we absolutely do not recommend that you attempt to withdraw from drugs or alcohol in a home environment. This is something which should be done under professional supervision.
Our medical staff, who will be keeping you safe 24/7 will taper away your access to addictive substances, which makes it easier for your body to adjust. They can also issue prescription medication to ease your discomfort.
This is not a sign of weakness and should not be considered as such – detox is important, and can take up to two weeks depending on the severity of your addiction – so we will make the process as easy as we can for you.
Therapies and Aftercare
When your detox has been completed, you will be able to proceed with the rest of your treatment. This will mostly be therapies, where you will spend time with qualified addiction treatment specialists who will identify your addictive behaviours and show you how to change them.
You will also have the opportunity to mix and recover with fellow recovering addicts in group therapy. This allows you to identify with other people in the middle of the same experience, and to motivate each other to recovery as a means of positive peer pressure.
Before you leave Addiction Advocates, you will be given an aftercare plan for you to stick to. This part of the treatment is where the responsibility falls on you to apply everything you have learned during your time with us.
You will have regular follow up sessions, access to local support groups and access to a 24 hour helpline in the 12 months immediately following your rehab, when statistically you are at the most vulnerable to experience a relapse.
If you are ready to confront your addiction, please get in touch with Addiction Advocates right away.
