The first option you have available is to join a local support group run by people who have already successfully worked through the recovery process and achieved long-term recovery.
You will be able to find meetings for groups such as alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous all around the country that can provide you with support and information on how to reduce or even stop your substance abuse.
These groups follow the 12-step structure, and as part of that support, you will be matched with a sponsor who you can call, should you be experiencing cravings and need help overcoming them.
The next option you have is to try to access the rehab services provided by the NHS.
NHS rehab centres may have long waiting lists, but it is completely free. It is recommended if you do choose this option to also attend some support group meetings to help you until you can begin your treatments.
However, the option that has the best-proven success rate is booking yourself into a private drug and alcohol rehab centre in the Wath Upon Dearne area.
With a private rehab, you will have access to top-quality care as soon as you need it. As a result, there are no long wait lists and no need to limit your progress by only having the option of outpatient rehab.
With private rehab facilities, you are given full control over what you want your rehab experience to be like. Be it a private and individual affair or something you experience with others at the centre. It is all about what makes you the most comfortable and will help you to achieve long-term recovery.
While some people may be put off by the price of private rehab, you certainly get what you pay for. It is an important decision to make, but you should know that once you have made the decision to find help from a rehab centre, you must act quickly.
Drug and alcohol addiction can make it very easy for you to convince yourself you don’t need help even when you do.
You have to be ready to take that step and seize the opportunity you are given to live a happier and healthier life.
Can You Go To Rehab if I Have a Job?
There is no reason to be worried if you have a job. In most cases, you will be able to take a medical leave of absence so that you can get better.
Rehabilitation services are medical treatments and are offered the same protections as any other mental health services.
While it is up to you about how much you are comfortable telling your employers, know that there is support available to help you through this.
Should you find yourself unable or unwilling to take a leave of absence, you do also have the option to do outpatient treatments that you can work around your current work schedule.
In most cases, you will also be able to do many of the treatments remotely, such as at-home therapy and at-home drug and alcohol detox.

Drug and Alcohol Detox and Therapy
A key part of your stay at the drug and alcohol rehab centre in Wath Upon Dearne is the treatments that will help you to overcome both mental and chemical addiction.
Some substances such as cannabis and cocaine are mental addictions which means you may not require an alcohol and drug detox in order to safely treat your addiction, unlike drugs such as heroin or alcohol.
However, you may still experience some withdrawal symptoms, so it is important that you are monitored for the 10-day period required to wean your body off all drugs and alcohol in your system.
Mental withdrawal symptoms
- Mood swings
Physical withdrawal symptoms
- Muscle pain
- Muscle spasms
- Hot flashes
As part of the detox process, these withdrawal symptoms will be dealt with safely. They won’t progress to the point of danger for you, thanks to the supervising medical team providing you with medication to relieve the symptoms.
Following the drug and alcohol detox, you will begin your therapeutic treatments.
This will be tailored to your specific needs as repairing one’s mental health is a very personal process that has to consider your experiences, potential undiagnosed mental illnesses and any past trauma you may have.
As substance abuse to the point of addiction doesn’t happen overnight, we need to treat both physical and mental addiction. It tends to be an indicator that you are trying to self-medicate in order to function normally or even forget your problems for a while.
Through therapy, you will unpack the reason behind your substance abuse and even begin the process of a formal diagnosis for any mental illnesses you may have. You will also be taught how to manage your addiction so that when you leave the alcohol and drug rehab centre, you can continue to make progress towards long-term recovery.
With Action Rehab, we have made the admission process as easy as possible for you.
All you have to do is give us a call at 0151 268 6992 or, if you prefer, email us at [email protected]. Then you will be able to book in to speak to a member of our admissions team for a pre-admission assessment.
This is just to make sure that you are in the right place and to discuss what you hope to get out of your stay at rehab.
Following this, all you need to do is pay a deposit for the treatments you have selected and book in to start your treatments as soon as you can.
It is easy and simple and can be done whenever is convenient for you. But remember, the sooner you begin the work, the sooner you can reap the rewards.
