It all begins when you pick up the phone and call our team for free, no-obligation advice.
Rehab centres across the UK
While you may have come across Action Rehab while searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Bristol, we can help you find a treatment centre in locations across the UK. This means that whether you want to stay at home or take some time away from everyday life, we can find you somewhere suitable.
Action Rehab specialise in placing people in residential rehab, which you may not have considered before. However, in our experience, staying in residential care is often the best way for people with addictions to heal. We have close relationships with a number of clinics, from places close to major cities, to countryside retreats, and although things like facilities may vary, what they all have in common is a very high standard of care.
Staying in residential rehab centres
Residential rehab is a good choice as it means you get support around the clock throughout your treatment. When it comes to your detox programme, you can choose to take prescription medication to make the process a little easier, and you’re less likely to give up if you have lots of support.
Many people with drug or alcohol addictions have problems at home or have friends who also take part in substance abuse. This means rehab at home is often very difficult, so it’s worth considering whether some time away could help.
Staying at a rehab clinic isn’t like being at a hospital or being locked up. The centres recommended by Action Rehab for drug and alcohol rehab in Bristol have been carefully checked by us to ensure they’re welcoming and comfortable, with intensive therapy, workshops and activities designed to help you overcome your addiction.
Most people spend 28 days in rehab, and while this can be a good start to your journey, it’s obviously not enough time to completely overcome an addiction. That’s why many of the recovery programmes we recommend come with free aftercare, which is designed to help you stay on track in the long term.
After you complete rehab, you may also want to find some support groups locally, as they can help you build a support network. It’s common to feel isolated when you go sober, as you may be avoiding things like bars and clubs that your friends enjoy.
You may well have heard of groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and there are several meetings in Bristol and the surrounding areas which can help with your recovery.
How drug and alcohol rehab in Bristol works
One of the reasons why residential rehab works well, when compared to other types of treatment, is that it addresses the causes of your addictive behaviour. There can be many reasons why people turn to drugs or alcohol, and it’s often because they’re self-medicating to overcome negative feelings.
When you stay in rehab, you get intensive therapy, both individual and group, which help you find healthier ways to deal with these emotions.
Many people who contact Action Rehab need support with both an addiction and their mental health. In these cases, we could help you find a clinic that specialises in dual diagnoses, so you get the support to help you heal in all aspects of your life.
Are rehab centers effective?
Rehab centres have been proven to be very successful. However, individual success at rehab entirely depends on the individual’s dedication to becoming addiction free. When you arrive at rehab, you will be given the best professional care by experts in recovery. After completion, you will also be given comprehensive aftercare plan tailored to suit you to ensure your return to ‘normal’ life is a smooth transition. If an individual is ready and dedicated to live an addiction free life, rehab is the best place.
Help without a waiting list
If you’ve decided you need addiction treatment, then the last thing you want is a long waiting list for help. That’s why it’s worth speaking to Action Rehab. We work closely with a number of world-class rehab centres, so if your case is urgent, we can usually get you a bed in a clinic within 48 hours.
We know that when people with addiction decide they need help, that they really need to be dealt with as soon as possible, which is why we have made the admissions process as fast and easy as we can.
While NHS treatment often requires a long wait on a list, plus fulfilling certain criteria to get help, we don’t ask for a GP referral or anything like that. All we ask is that you’re willing to get help and go to rehab, and that you’re willing to follow the programme to the best of your ability.
We often work with friends and family of those with addictions, who want to know how they can get help for their loved one. We can’t force them into treatment, but we can guide you through the process of holding an intervention or similar, so you can show them that they have options and can get help.
