Each year, one out of ten adults between the ages of 16 and 59 admit to battling with addiction. However, not everyone obtains treatment. At Action Rehab, we encourage you to seek the help that you need and deserve, regardless of your background, age or addiction.
We understand that when battling a drug or alcohol addiction, you may feel a range of emotions including shame, fear, anxiety and guilt. You may even believe that people may judge you if you admit to having an addiction, which can make it even harder to seek help.
Please be assured, when you contact us and take the first step to obtaining support with your addiction, you will not be judged. Nor will you made to feel insignificant.
Types of Addictions
At Action Rehab, we can find an appropriate drug and alcohol rehab in Harlow, regardless of the type of addiction you struggle with. Below, we’ve listed the various addictions we can provide referrals for;
- Alcohol Addiction
- Drug Addiction
- Cannabis Addiction
- Cocaine Addiction
- Prescription Drug Addiction
How Does the Referral Process Works?
When you contact our team of professionals, we will take the time to listen to you. Firstly, we will ask you to tell us about the type of addiction you are battling with. We will then encourage you to tell us about the symptoms you are experiencing.
Upon obtaining this information, we will locate a rehab in Harlow that we believe will be able to cater to your needs. We will then discuss your addiction and symptoms with the treatment centre to determine which type of intervention would be best for you.
If intervention is in your best interest, the rehab centre will admit you for either detoxification treatment or rehabilitation. As every addiction is different, the intervention offered will vary for each individual. The selected rehab centre will consider how severe your addiction is and the impact it is having on your physical and psychological health to determine the best course of action. If you have talked to others battling addictions and discovered that they are seeking help that differs to what you are offered, this is completely normal. Your treatment program will be bespoke to your needs.
What Treatment Will I Be Offered?
Having decided that intervention is in your best interest, the selected drug and alcohol rehab in Harlow will work with you to create a tailored treatment program.
The two treatments offered include detoxification and rehabilitation. Both of these treatments are delivered at a facility, which will see you become an inpatient for a period of time while you undergo your treatment. Initially, this may seem nerve-wracking and you may worry about not seeing your loved ones, but as an inpatient you will have 24/7 access to the help and support you need. This will help prevent any immediate relapses and allow you to go through detox and withdrawals with professional help, setting you up for a long-term recovery. Your loved ones will be able to communicate with you over the phone and, if permitted by your rehab centre, they may also be able to send you gift, cards and letters.
If a detox program is deemed better suited for your needs, you will be offered 24-hour care and one to one counselling to ensure that you are comfortable and at ease as you transition through withdrawal symptoms. Detox treatment usually lasts for seven days, however, upon completing this treatment, you will continue to receive support through regular counselling and therapy sessions.
Unlike detox treatment, rehab treatment can last between four to twelve weeks; however, the length of treatment will entirely depend on your response to the treatment. Some individuals may complete their treatment sooner than expected, while others may need to stay admitted for longer.
Typically, the first stage of rehab treatment is detox. This will rid your body of harmful toxins and substances that your body has become addicted to. During the seven-day detox treatment, it is likely that you with experience withdrawal symptoms. This is completely normal and expected. Rest assured, you will never face withdrawal alone and you will have a dedicated team to assist you every step of the way.
As you progress through your detox treatment, the second stage of your rehabilitation will include therapy. In many rehab facilities, therapy sessions are conducted in both one-to-one settings and group environments. Group therapy will enable you to listen to other individual’s stories and share you own, while one-to-one therapy will provide you with a confidential space to discuss the impact treatment is having on you, any withdrawal symptoms you are experiencing and establish a personal recovery plan and long term recovery goals.
Once you have completed your rehab treatment, you will continue to receive aftercare support. This will aid your drug and alcohol rehabilitation outside of a facility and often includes regular therapy sessions. You may also be encouraged to attending meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
