Addiction is a disease. Were you diagnosed with any other disease, nobody would expect you to fight it without medical help, but when it comes to addiction, many people believe you can just ‘get over it’ and do it alone. However, the statistics show that it’s highly unlikely you’ll overcome an addiction without help, so you’ll need drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester. At Action Rehab, we can help you find the best possible addiction treatment to suit your needs, so you can get all the support you need to get on the path to recovery.
Understanding the root of your addiction
In order to heal from addiction, you need therapy to understand what causes it. When you stay in a rehab centre, you get intensive therapy, which allows you to understand your triggers and what may have caused you to relapse in the past. That’s why we often recommend residential care for those looking to overcome an addiction. It means you can go through a programme in a short period of time, so if you have an alcohol and drug problem, you can get the help you need and start living your life again as soon as possible.
When you go to a rehabilitation centre, you learn how to manage your cravings for drugs and alcohol, from finding things that distract you, to learning the signs of a relapse, you therefore leave with the tools you need for a full recovery. We work with clinics who offer a combination of traditional and holistic therapies that can help you to achieve this.
How Action Rehab can help
One thing that people struggle with when looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester, is finding the right clinic. While you can read their websites and online reviews, it’s hard to know whether their drug or alcohol rehab programme will be a good fit for you. These treatment programmes aren’t cheap, so you want to ensure you get on the right one.
Action Rehab can help by finding you the best possible alcohol or drug rehab in your area or beyond. We have close relationships with a number of centres in the UK, which makes it easier for us to pick one to suit you. Our team know what to look for in a recovery programme, allowing us to help you find the right rehab place for you, so you have the best possible chance of success.
When someone is trying to overcome an alcohol or drug addiction, they may feel that they could cut down and become a ‘recreational’ user, or someone who has an occasional drink. However, most of the treatment centres that we deal with offer abstinence-based treatment, which means you eliminate alcohol or drugs from your life entirely. While relapses can occur, when you are in a rehab clinic, you learn how to deal with these relapses and move on with your recovery.
The reason why you should consider abstinence is that, as someone with an addictive personality, you’re likely to struggle to use substances in moderation. Over a period of time, you may feel like you’ve got what it takes to have a couple of drinks at a special occasion, but this may lead to further issues.
Getting help quickly
When you’ve identified that you need help with an addiction and decided to commit to drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester, it’s important not to delay going into treatment. Any delay could put you in danger, as there is always the risk you could overdose, or your addiction could lead to further health problems. That’s why Action Rehab are here to help. Instead of being on long waiting lists, we can get you into a centre in Leicester or the location of your choice quickly. You can be sure of a high standard of treatment, because our clinics are handpicked, and you don’t have to wait for a GP referral.

Confidential advice and support
When people call Action Rehab, they are often concerned about confidentiality. Rest assured, our service is completely confidential at all stages. We understand the stigma that can exist around addiction and related issues such as mental health problems, which is why we are careful to only share your information when you have given consent, for example, passing your details to a clinic.
