The town of Saltash struggles with addiction and substance abuse problems just like any other UK town. Among its citizens, there are a number who are struggling with alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription medications and more. These people are in desperate need of help and support if they are ever to recover. Thankfully, both drug and alcohol rehab in Saltash is available and can be easily accessed with our help.
Addiction Helper exists to help connect those in need of alcohol and drug rehab in Saltash with the facilities that provide it. We have established a 24-hour addiction recovery helpline available free of charge to anyone who needs such help. Our helpline is staffed by caring and compassionate counsellors possessing the knowledge and experience to assist addicts and their families through counselling and referral services. Our mission is to make sure no one hangs up the phone without being directed to appropriate treatment.
We work with a number of organisations that provide rehab in Saltash. Our providers include private clinics and charities. We can also advise clients regarding free services offered through the NHS. To us, the most important thing is that everyone who calls us gets the necessary help.
What Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Entail?
It is important for you to understand that substance abuse and addiction are more than just physical problems. Substances like crack and heroin actually alter the internal workings of the brain to the point of interfering with normal cognitive functioning. That is one of the reasons why withdrawal symptoms occur during detox. The fact of the matter is that very few people recover with detox alone. Most full-blown addicts need 6 to 12 weeks of rehabilitative therapy in addition to the detox treatment.
From our perspective, the best way to provide such treatment is through a residential programme offered by a private clinic. Residential treatment provides a safe and medically supervised atmosphere enabling recovering addicts to focus solely on getting better. Without the distractions of everyday life, recovery tends to be faster and more thorough.
A private clinic can offer immediate access to treatment, which is often not possible with providers of free programmes where waiting lists are commonplace. However, we understand that not everyone can or wants to access private drug or alcohol rehab in Saltash. We work closely with all providers in the area to ensure that when you call us, you will have more choice in terms of your treatment.
If an outpatient programme is your preference, we can find the best one for you. This type of programme will take place alongside daily life. There is no need for you to stay in the clinic and you can recover while carrying on with work and home life. You will therefore need a real desire to change and the motivation to stay sober. Provided you have a strong network of support at home, there is no reason why an outpatient programme will not work for you.
Choosing the Right Alcohol or Drug Rehab in Saltash
We assume you are visiting our website because you are concerned that you may have a substance abuse or addiction problem. We also assume you might be struggling greatly with the first step of admitting you have a problem. Only you can make the choice to access alcohol or drug rehab in Saltash.
As a referral service, we liaise with all providers of rehab across the UK. We have been matching clients to the most suitable providers for many years. We do this by providing free and confidential evaluations in the first instance.
Our free assessment service allows us to create a profile of the needs of every person who contacts us for help. We will, for example, look at your level of substance misuse by asking questions about the type of substances you have been abusing and how long for. We will then look at your personal situation to allow us to determine what type of treatment would suit.
We want you to know that your preferences are important to us and we will only refer you to a programme you are comfortable with. While we believe that inpatient programmes tend to be the best choice for most affected people, if you would prefer an outpatient programme, we will find one for you.
