In London alone, twice as many drugs are consumed on a daily basis than in any other city across the UK and Europe. As individuals are surrounded by drugs every single day, overcoming drug abuse or an addiction can be difficult without assistance.
As a result, obtaining support from professionals at a rehab in Wembley or the surrounding North West London area is in your best interest, especially if you are serious about controlling your drug addiction.
Do I need help?
If you have decided that it is time to seek help, it is important that you first consider whether a drug addiction is present. It is possible to consume substances without being addicted. This is typically classed as drug abuse.
Drug abuse is more likely to be present if you do not constantly crave substances and do not experience any withdrawal symptoms when they are not taken. Even if you are not addicted to a substance, it is imperative that you reconsider using drugs. Drug abuse often leads to addiction, which can have disastrous consequences.
If you persistently feel a burning desire to use drugs and experience feelings of nausea, headaches and hot sweats when you go without them, it is possible that you have a drug addiction and experience withdrawal symptoms. If this resonates with you, we would highly recommend that you contact us today so that we can provide you with support to help you overcome your addiction.
What Drug Addictions Can a Rehab in Wembley Treat?
Residential rehabs in Wembley, such as the ones we are able to refer you to, treat a number of various class A, B and C drug addictions every single day. These include but are not limited to the following;
- – Cannabis Addiction
- – Cocaine Addiction
- – Prescription Drug Addiction
- – Heroin Addiction
What Can Drug Rehab Clinics Do for Me?
When you enter a drug and alcohol rehab in Wembley, you will be provided with immediate support to ensure that you are able to recover from your addiction sooner rather than later. The facilities that we work with are all private, which means that you will become an inpatient as you progress through your treatment programme. Many ask if this is necessary, or if they can be admitted as an outpatient, but residential rehabs are truly the best option when drug or alcohol addictions are present.
As an inpatient, you will have around the clock care and support, which will prevent you from relapsing and will also ensure that you have medical professionals around you as and when you experience withdrawal symptoms.
Typically, inpatients complete their rehab programmes within 28 days, however, depending on the severity of the addiction, some often stay for up to three months. This may seem like a long time to be away from home and in rehab, and you may even believe that you do not need treatment for this amount of time, but completing the entire programme is crucial if you are to make a long-term recovery.
When you are first admitted to a rehab in Wembley you will receive detoxification treatment, which lasts for seven days. Upon completing this treatment, you will start therapy-based treatment. This will include one-to-one therapy sessions and group therapy sessions. It is hard to say how long this stage in your treatment will last as it will entirely depend on how intense your addiction is.
In 2019 alone, over 7,000 people were admitted to hospital with mental health and behaviour disorders related to drug addictions. As a result, when you enter rehab, you will also be provided with the support you need to help you with any mental health or behavioural issues that you may be facing.
What Will Happen When I Contact You?
When you contact us, you are taking to first step in addressing your addiction. More than often, when we are contacted by individuals it is the first time that they have spoken about their addiction or admitted to having a drug addiction. We understand that discussing your addiction, how you feel and asking for help can be somewhat intimidating, which is why we will take the time to talk to you.
As you explain your feelings and concerns, we may ask you a number of questions. These questions will help us to determine whether rehab is right for you and will enable us to refer you to a suitable rehab in Wembley. We may ask you how long you have been addicted to a specific drug, which drug you have an addiction to, whether you have any withdrawal symptoms and if anyone else knows about your addiction.
Once we have gathered all of the information that we need to help you, we will begin to look for an appropriate rehab and provide you with a referral. Once you have been referred, you will be contacted to discuss your admission to a treatment centre.
