If you’re determined to overcome your alcohol addiction and want to rebuild your life, then Action Rehab can help. We can help you find drug and alcohol rehab in Newcastle that gives you all the help and support you need to stay sober for life, so you can enjoy things without using substances. While having an addiction can mean you feel hopeless, but it is possible to overcome addiction, you just need the right treatment programme to get you on track.
Finding the right rehab clinic
When you search for alcohol and drug rehab in Newcastle upon Tyne, you’ll find there are many different options out there for you. From community programmes to outpatient treatment, it can be difficult to decide what’ll work best for you. That’s where Action Rehab can help. We can help you find the best rehab centre to suit your needs, which will depend on many factors from the type of addiction you have, to whether you’ve tried different treatments before and relapsed.
Action Rehab has access to a network of private clinics, all of which have been especially chosen because of the high levels of care they offer. You can choose to stay close to Newcastle if you wish, which works well for those who have family commitments, or you may wish to travel further away to stay in one of our rehabilitation centres. Some time away can be good for those who have friends or family members who regularly use drugs or alcohol, as it takes you away from bad influences.
Going through detox and rehab
The first part of most addiction treatment programmes is detoxing. You need to get all the substances out of your system before you start your treatment programme. This will help you to start with a clear head and give your body a chance to heal. When you’re struggling with addiction, it’s often hard to imagine what a sober life will be like, so detoxing gives you the chance to have this experience.
In general, detox takes a few days, but Action Rehab recommend a stay of at least ten days on any programme. This gives you time to ensure everything is out of your system, so you don’t suffer withdrawal after you leave.
Ideally, you should consider a full programme at a residential rehab centre to get the best possible chance of success. These take around 28 days and include many sessions with addiction counsellors, both as an individual and in groups, so you tackle the root causes of your addiction. While treatment varies from clinic to clinic, you’ll usually go through a number of workshops and education sessions which help you avoid a relapse.
Choosing to go private
People who are looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Newcastle may have already tried a number of routes to get help. It’s common for people to wait on the NHS waiting lists for a long time, desperate for help, before deciding to try private rehab.
A big advantage of going private is that you can go straight to a rehabilitation clinic. Most doctors will ask that you try methods such as outpatient treatment first, but for many, it’s just not feasible for them to recover without support 24 hours a day. When you contact Action Rehab, you don’t need a GP referral, and it’s completely confidential. You can decide what type of treatment you want, whether it’s your first time or you’ve tried different methods before, so you can feel in control.
Action Rehab can provide free, no-obligation advice to people with addictions, as well as individual’s families who are concerned about a loved one. Need to organise an intervention? We can help, allowing you to find a place and offer treatment to your loved one, and hopefully encouraging them to get into rehab.
Fast and easy admission
When you decide it’s time to look for drug and alcohol rehab in Newcastle, the last thing you want is a load of red tape that slows down your admission. Action Rehab have streamlined the process so that you can get admitted quickly, often in as little as 48 hours. It starts with an initial assessment over the phone to discuss your addiction and aspects such as your mental health, and from there, we work hard to get you into a suitable centre as fast as possible.
Being stuck on a waiting list can have a number of negative effects. While you wait for treatment, your addiction may worsen. Having an addiction can get you into legal or financial trouble, not to mention the negative effects it can have on your loved ones. Therefore, it’s not wise to delay your rehab, as anything can happen in the meantime. That’s why Action Rehab have a helpline open around the clock and have made it so much easier to get a rehab place, so you can finally begin your healing.
