Substance abuse can be a very scary thing to both the user and his or her family. Moreover, things get progressively worse as substance abuse evolves into addiction. However, thanks to the efforts of dedicated addiction recovery workers, those struggling with drugs and alcohol can find help wherever they live. If you need help in Earley, our addiction recovery helpline is a good place to start.

- legal highs.
We can help you whether you are in the early stages of abuse and misuse or a chronic addict at the end of your rope. All you need to do is get in touch with us by calling our 24-hour helpline. We can get you started on the road to recovery today. Why wait any longer?
You’ll be pleased to know that there is a variety of options for those looking for help in Earley. Of course, the NHS offers a number of free services available at hospitals and drug rehab clinics throughout England. There are also support groups and charities ready and waiting to assist you. Having said that, we prefer to recommend our clients seek residential rehab at a private clinic. We believe private clinics offer the best chances of permanent success.
Most of those who call us begin their treatment with a 7 to 10-day detox period. When it is over, an individual is completely free of the substances he or she was previously using. Most withdrawal symptoms are also passed, though some can linger depending on the severity of the addiction. Prescription medications can sometimes help with those lingering symptoms.
The second is a 4 to 12 week rehab involving psychotherapeutic treatments, group counselling and 12-step work. This is the part of the treatment where recovering addicts learn how to identify the triggers of addictive behaviour and strategic ways to avoid them. This kind of rehab is essential for long-term sobriety.
Lastly, several months of aftercare services are provided once the residential treatment has concluded. Aftercare includes all of the support services the recovering addict needs to prevent relapse. Some of the more common support services include membership in a local support group and continuing one-on-one counselling.
