When you need help with drug and alcohol addiction, all you need to do is pick up the phone and call our 24-hour helpline. We can help you decide on the best treatment options to suit your needs, whether it’s a local organisation or a rehab clinic, ensuring you get help without delay.
Finding a rehab centre
There are a number of rehab centres across the United Kingdom, which means that when you are looking for treatment, you’ll certainly have a lot of options. The problem is, how do you know you’ll get caring, professional treatment when you stay in these clinics? Not all rehab centres have the same high standards, and nobody wants to go to a centre only to find they’re stressed and unhappy.
When you call Action Rehab looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Cardiff, you can be sure you’re only referred to the best treatment centres possible. We have close relationships with a small number of high-quality clinics across the UK, so you can be assured that you or your family member will get the best possible care in a pleasant, homely location. We only work with clinics who offer the highest standards of care, so you can feel confident that you or your loved one will be treated well.
Choosing the right addiction treatment
It can be difficult to choose the right type of addiction treatment, as obviously, there are lots of options online for alcohol and drug rehab, all of which promise a good outcome. That’s why many people speak to Action Rehab first, as we can carry out an initial assessment over the phone and discuss what might be right for the person with the addiction. Whether they have an issue with drugs or alcohol, or perhaps even both, working with Action Rehab makes it more likely they’ll get the right care.
In many cases, residential rehab is recommended for those who are serious about overcoming their addiction. While this may seem like a big step, it’s worth remembering that addictions can be serious and ongoing, so they often respond best to intensive treatment. Those who complete a stay in residential rehab as well as the required aftercare tend to have the highest success rate in the long term.
Some types of rehab treatment are given as an outpatient, which means you can stay at home for the duration of your programme. Most of these types of treatment involve visiting the clinic by day. Unfortunately, those with alcohol or drug problems will know how hard it is to fight temptation. When you live at home, you may be near people who drink or use drugs, which can affect your own recovery. For these reasons, it’s worth considering rehab programmes that are residential in nature.
Detox and rehab
Action Rehab work with people with all types of addictions that are looking to get sober and stay away from these substance in the long term. Many people who contact us will ask about medically assisted detox, which is something you can complete in a clinic in a few days. While we do on occasion recommend these short programmes, especially for those who have other commitments, our minimum stay is 10 days, so the clinic can ensure you have completely detoxed.
If you can take the time away, it’s worth considering a 28 day stay so you can go through full rehab treatment. This sort of programme will allow you to go through intensive therapy and education, so you can learn more about why you developed an addiction and how you can avoid a relapse. While 28 days might sound like a lot, it’s very little when compared with the rest of your life, and it can mean you finally free yourself from alcohol or drug abuse.
Getting help today
One of the reasons why you may be searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Cardiff is that you know you need help yet have found it difficult to find on the NHS. Unfortunately, NHS cuts have led to important services such as alcohol and drug treatment to be rationed out, and you often can’t access much help unless you have the most severe form of alcohol or drug addiction, when it threatens your life.
The problem is most people don’t want to wait to get help. Addiction is a disease, which means the longer you wait for a place in drug or alcohol rehab in Cardiff, the more difficult your recovery becomes. That’s why it’s worth calling Action Rehab, as we have contacts with centres across the UK so can get you fast admission. The time between you picking up the phone and entering rehab could be as little as 48 hours, meaning you can start recovery sooner than you think.
Delaying rehab could have a number of negative effects on your health, relationships and finances, so don’t wait until you’ve hit rock bottom to start recovering. You can recover from addiction and start rebuilding your life.
