However, many people struggling with addictions often defer the treatment they desperately need due to a lack of understanding about life in rehab, treatment and securing a place at a suitable centre

To help you, we have provided a wealth of information surrounding life in rehab and our self-referral service here.


Life In Rehab

Due to the stigmas surrounding rehab, individuals across the world believe that life in rehab is somewhat bleak and monotonous.  However, we can assure you that life in rehab is anything but this.

During the time you spend in a drug and alcohol rehab in Thurrock, you will undergo a wealth of treatments that will see you able to truly open your eyes to the impact your addiction has had on your life.

You will be introduced to a wealth of treatments and therapies that will enable you to recover from your struggles psychologically, and you will find that you feel much more optimistic as the ramifications of your addiction begin to alleviate.

In addition, life in rehab will see you surrounded by support by medical professionals and by others, who like you, are taking the steps needed to overcome an addiction.  Although you will likely have support at home, the support you receive in rehab from your peers will be life-changing.

This is because, at the height of your addiction, you may have felt alone. You may have also felt as though no one else understands how you feel.  However, as you attend group therapy sessions, you will realise that several others can relate to the struggles you have faced.

This will encourage you to achieve a long-term recovery and will motivate you to turn your life around.

While life in rehab will see you faced with challenges and may, at times, be distressing, attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Thurrock truly is in your best interest.


Life After Rehab

Many people expect to be able to bounce back to their everyday lives and routines upon completing a rehabilitation programme at a drug and alcohol rehab in Thurrock.

However, recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction goes well beyond attending rehab.  In fact, rehab is often just the start of an individual’s recovery.

As you leave rehab, you will be advised to participate in aftercare support.  Aftercare support typically consists of regular group therapy meetings and one-to-one therapy.  You will also be encouraged to attend support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Even if you do not believe that you need to take advantage of aftercare support, we would ask you to do so.


How We Determine Which Rehab Is Best For You

At Addiction Advocates, your needs are at the forefront of everything we do.  We will not refer you to a drug and alcohol rehab in Thurrock that we do not believe will provide the treatment you need to overcome your addiction.

When it comes to determining which rehab is best for you, we consider various factors.

For example, as we conduct our admissions assessment and help you progress through our self-referral process, we will take the time to understand how your addiction has impaired your physical and psychological health.  In doing so, we will comprehend the types of treatment that you will likely require and locate a rehab that can provide you with just that.

In addition, we will also consider whether you would prefer to attend a drug and alcohol rehab in Thurrock or whether you would prefer to attend a rehab elsewhere.  Although many people prefer to stay close to home during their time in rehab, a large number of individuals have opted to secure treatment away from their hometown for various reasons.

We will also consider your financial means when determining which rehab is best for you.  Although we typically refer individuals struggling with addictions to private residential rehabs, we appreciate that this may not be a suitable option for you.


Our Self-Referral Process

To ensure that you can secure the treatment you need to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction, at Addiction Advocates, we have created a straightforward self-referral process.

Commencing when you contact us to discuss your addiction, the first stage of our self-referral process consists of a telephone assessment.  This assessment will enable our admissions team to understand your substance abuse, the physical and psychological ramifications you experience and your general health.

Upon completing the telephone assessment, our team will be able to provide you with insight into the drug and alcohol rehabs in Thurrock that are available to offer you the treatment you need.

If you are happy to go ahead and secure a space at a rehab, our team will help you select a suitable facility.  The chosen facility will depend on various factors. However, your recovery will be of utmost importance.

Upon discussing the various rehabs that can help you overcome your addiction, we will help you select a rehab, and we will also place a reservation on your behalf.  It is here that you will be required to pay a deposit.  Upon doing so, you will be provided with an admission date.

Throughout the self-referral process, our admissions team will be on hand to support you every step of the way.  You will be kept up to date with any advancements at all times, and we will always ensure that you are comfortable and content.
