When to ask for help

An addiction is present when you have no control over using, taking or doing something, even when it becomes harmful to your mind and body. An addiction can be formed in relation to almost anything, but is most often associated with drugs, alcohol and gambling.

Anyone can become an addict, as addiction doesn’t discriminate against social, economic or geographical positioning. However, addiction usually comes hand in hand with mental health issues.

Whether mental; health issues are the cause of an addiction or are caused by an addiction, it’s vital that both your mind and body are treated through rehab in order to sustain long term recovery.

If left untreated an addiction will only worsen, to the point where it can kill you. Drugs and alcohol addictions cause serious lasting health problems, alongside a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety and depression.

When it comes to seeking help, detail can be the biggest hurdle to overcome. Once you’ve managed to admit to your addiction, you want to seek help as quickly as you can.

By postponing help, you could put your life on the line. No matter the severity of your addiction its never too early or too late to ask for help.

What to expect from Rehab in Finchley

If you’re already searching for ‘rehab near me’, chances are you’ve overcome your denial and are ready to commit to your recovery.

However, whilst searching you may feel daunted by all the options you’re presented with. The first decision to make, though, is whether you opt for outpatient or residential inpatient addiction treatment.

Outpatient treatment can be completed whilst you’re living at home, which is why it may seem like the most idea solution to begin with. However, it’s important to consider all options at this stage to ensure that you pick the right rehab programme for you.

Residential rehab in Finchley is completed whilst you live onsite at the rehabilitation centre. The huge advantage to this is the fact that you’ll be distanced from the negative influences that drive your addiction.

This provides you with a safe and supportive environment to help your mind and body recover and gain strength before re-entering your daily life.

We understand that it can be a daunting challenge trying to find the right rehab programme for you, which is why we provide a free and confidential initial assessment, whereby we’ll discuss with you your addiction, lifestyle and medical history to help find you the best possible treatment.

Medically supervised Detoxification

Here at Addiction Advocates, every addiction treatment programme begins with detoxification.  Detox usually lasts a couple of days, after which you therapy treatments will begin.

Due to the withdrawal symptoms that usually arise from detox, we always ensure that dextrose at our rehabilitation centres are medially supervised.

This means that you’ll receive round the clock care to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole process. We can administer prescription drugs if the symptoms become more severe.

Withdrawal symptoms are caused by the reduction in consumption, as you body has to readjust to life without the substance. The symptoms you experience will depend on the severity of your addiction and can include any of the following:

  • Headaches
  • Problems sleeping and insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Shakiness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Seizures


All of our rehab programmes are personalised to ensure that you receive the best and most effective treatment. At our rehabilitation centres we provide a range of traditional and holistic therapies for you to choose from.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the most effective form of therapy to treat addiction and is something that all of our patients undertake.

CBT works by identifying the root causes of your addiction and then helping you to change your habits and thought process through psychoeducation. This process allows you to make positive changes to your behaviour to help you identify triggers and stop cravings.

Alongside CBT you’ll have the opportunity to partake in a variety of holistic theories, including:

  • Bereavement Counselling
  • Psychotherapy
  • Group Session
  • Motivational Session
  • Stress Management Workshops
  • Art Therapy

A lot of people think that rehab in Finchley will be prison-like or very sterile like a hospital. However, this could not be further from the truth. Our centre is homely and comfortable, providing a safe, warm and supportive environment.

We work hard to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere and organise many movie, or quiz nights, as well as days out.

Its important that during your rehab you develop a more positive and healthy lifestyle to enable you to focus and find alternative interests, as you’ll have a lot of spare time on your hands when you give up your addiction.

How long does Drug and Alcohol Rehab take?

Rehab in Finchley usually lasts for 28 days, but this will depend on your own personal requirements.

However, rehabilitation does not end when you leave the centre, as drug and alcohol rehab is a lifestyle choice, not a quick fix. Therefore, it’s imperative that you’re filly committed to your recovery.

Once you’ve completed your rehab programme you’ll complete a Relapse Prevention Plan to help you spot the warning signs of relapse. We also provide you with aftercare programme options, to help you settle back into daily life.

We’ll provide you with the support and guidance needed to help you sustain long term recovery.
