Please be assured that you are not alone. It is believed that over 500,000 people in the UK are suffering from drug or alcohol-related addictions. However, only a fraction of individuals seek help.
Left untreated, a drug or alcohol addiction can have a catastrophic impact on your life. Addictions can ruin your relationships with your loved ones, leave you unemployed, in a substantial amount of debt and even take your life.
Admitting that you have an addiction, even to yourself, can be difficult to do. Individuals suffering with an addiction are often the last people to realise, as many will continuously deny that they rely on substances to function or get them through the day. However, if you have recently recognised that you have an addiction, it is important to seek treatment.
How Do I Know If I Am Ready for Rehab?
Drug or alcohol addiction recovery is a lifelong commitment. There is no simple cure and, even after completing treatment in rehab, you will have to continue to commit to a long-term recovery process. As a result, it is crucial that you are ready to devote yourself to a life without drugs or alcohol. This will require you to change many aspects of your everyday routine.
Have you recently started to think to yourself that your addiction has gone too far? Have you realised the impact that your addiction has had on those around you? Are you aware of how much your addiction consumes your life? Do you want to take back control and live a drug or alcohol-free future?
If you have experienced any of the above thoughts, you are more than likely ready to attend a rehab in Windsor and seek treatment for your drug or alcohol addiction.
If you still question whether you want to be free from the shackles of drugs and alcohol, or feel that after completing a treatment programme you would be tempted to continue using alcohol or drugs, it might not be quite the right time for you to enter rehab. However, we would still urge you to contact us. We can offer you advice on the steps you need to take to ensure that you are ready to enter a rehab programme when the time is right for you.
How Do I Find a Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Windsor?
If you are certain that you are ready to turn your life around and dedicate yourself to a drug or alcohol-free life, it is time to take the next step in locating a drug and alcohol rehab in Windsor.
Finding a rehab that is right for your bespoke addiction needs can be difficult, which is why at Action Rehab we are here to help you. We can source and refer you to a rehab in Windsor that will have a treatment programme that is best suited to your addiction needs.
Although there are a number of drug and alcohol treatment centres in Windsor that we can refer you to, if you believe that attending a rehab a little further from home would be in your best interest, please do let us know. It is not uncommon for those obtaining treatment to want to be away from home, especially if drug and alcohol addictions have stemmed from issues that have arisen due to stress at work, home or because of surrounding influences.
Can I Live at Home During My Treatment?
All of the rehab treatments that we are able to refer you to will require you to become an inpatient. This means that throughout your treatment, you will live at the rehab centre.
Even though you may believe that you need to be at home, or that you have additional support at home that would help you through your treatment, inpatient care provides around the clock professional support and is in your best interest.
As you progress through your treatment, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can leave you feeling extremely unwell. As a result, you may be more tempted to feed your addiction as you will be led to believe that it will help you feel better. As an inpatient, you will not have access to any drugs or alcohol that would cause you to relapse, nor will you be surrounded by any temptations that you may have at home.
What About My Family?
As you get ready to start your treatment programme at a rehab centre, you may find yourself worried about what will happen to your family during your time away from them. You may also be concerned that your addiction has not just had an impact on your life, but on theirs too.
Equally, we will support your family through your recovery, as we are able to provide family addiction support. We can help guide your family through this tough time and provide them with insight into what causes drug and alcohol addictions. We will also give them the tools they need to support you as you complete your time in rehab.
Additionally to receiving treatment, you may be able to communicate with your loved ones over the telephone. They may even be able to send you letters and cards. However, this is subject to advice from your rehab in Windsor.
I’m Ready to Ask for Help
If you are ready to ask for help, we would advise you to call us on 0151 268 6992. Together, we can discuss your needs and complete a pre-admission assessment that will enable us to refer you to the right drug and alcohol rehab in Windsor.
When you take that first step and contact us, it is imperative that you are completely open and honest with us about your addiction. This may be difficult at first, but it is crucial to determining the treatment you require.
