Do you believe you may be wrestling with a drug or alcohol addiction? Do you live in the Kings Lynn area?

If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab near you, then Addiction Advocates can help.

Immediate assistance available in Kings Lynn

With our modern, comfortable rehab treatment centre, we can help you to make a clean break from the grasp of an addiction and lead you down to the path of long-term recovery.

It’s a dark time in your life, and that of your loved ones, when you are suffering from an addiction and medical intervention is almost always necessary. An addiction can completely change your brain and alter the person you are. It can ruin someone’s life in a startlingly short amount of time.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. By admitting you have a problem, you have already taken an enormous step in your recovery as overcoming the initial hurdle of denial is problematic for many addicts.

Why not call Addiction Advocates today for a free consultation? We can discuss your issues, whether you need medical assistance, offer practical advice and if required discuss treatment options that are within your budget.

Every day is of importance when fighting an addiction, so please call us today on 0800 012 6088 or text help to 83222 and Addiction Advocates can help you to get back on track immediately.


Signs of addiction

Unfortunately, it has become increasingly easy to hide the symptoms when suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction. This has been particularly the case in 2020, when many people have endured months of a lockdown.

As a family member, you will see your loved one’s condition deteriorate and they will likely be in complete denial about their issues. A drug or alcohol addict may find themselves underperforming in work, to the extent that their job has been lost as a consequence.

Financial issues are also common and there is often a slip into dishonest behaviour as someone needs to resort to shifty behaviour to feed their habit. This can then result in issues with the police and legal systems.

An addiction can destroy someone’s life very quickly. And worse still, it also greatly impacts their loved ones too. If you feel you need help, why not contact our helpful and friendly staff for a conversation about what kind of help you require?

Whilst private rehab isn’t the cheapest solution, it is undoubtedly the quickest. Treatment is available via local charity solutions and the NHS, but these are offered on an outpatient basis.

We don’t believe this is the best solution for someone suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction as it means that you’re out of the clinic at weekends and evenings, which allows many opportunities for temptation.

Our treatment plan involves a 28-day commitment to residential rehab, where you remain in our treatment centre during your rehab in Kings Lynn including for meals and overnight.

This allows you to immerse yourself in your treatment without the distractions of your normal life.


Our admissions process

If it’s determined that you require our assistance, we can admit you straight away because there’s no wait for a space in our rehab centres. After an initial discussion and consultation over the telephone we will admit you to our clinic. Here, you’ll meet your keyworkers and we will spend time getting to know you.

This is one of the biggest benefits of residential rehab – by taking time to get to know you as an individual and spending a concerted period of time by your side, we will be able to diagnose whether your addiction is being made worse by any underlying mental health conditions.

This is essential for long-term recovery and relapse prevention. All too often in outpatient treatment programs, no dual diagnosis is made when required and it leaves someone far more likely to suffer from a relapse in the future.

Drug and alcohol treatment centres are not the dingy, glum places they’re stereotyped to be on TV and our residential rehab will be comfortable and relaxing.


Detox clinic

It’s an unfortunate fact that most of our clients will require a spell in our detox clinic. Addiction is not something that is easily overcome and though you will be in a safe environment, you will need to put effort into your recovery and your time in detox will be tough.

In the detox clinic, your consumption of drugs or alcohol will be tapered down and eventually your body will react negatively to being denied the substances it craves. These range from mild to dangerous in severity but are highly unpleasant.

To help you through this difficult time in your treatment, you’ll be supported with around the clock assistance by our staff, who can issue prescription medication to alleviate any discomfort if needed. When your rehab is completed, you’ll be able to focus on the rest of your recovery journey.


Long-term recovery

You will be able to undergo a variety of therapies, both on an individual and group basis. Not only do we offer one to one sessions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and group sessions, we offer more holistic approaches such as exercise and yoga classes.

When combined all of this therapy will help to recover both your mind and body ahead of returning to your normal life in Kings Lynn.

Here, your recovery will need to be led by you. When you leave the care of Addiction Advocates, we will draw up an aftercare plan to help you in the difficult 12 months following your rehab.

But you will need to take responsibility for your own recovery and avoid places and people that may be a bad influence and trigger your addiction. There’s no cure for addiction but we will teach you how to manage it.

If you’re looking for drug rehab clinics, or alcohol rehab near you then why not give Addiction Advocates a call? Making that call will be a tough experience, but once you’ve done it, it only gets easier from that point.
