Our trained counsellors have the necessary experience and knowledge to get you pointed in the direction of a suitable alcohol or drug rehab in Canvey Island.

Do You Need Alcohol or Drug Rehab in Canvey Island?
It is very common for those struggling with addictions to drugs or alcohol to be unable to see how serious their situation is. Many simply do not believe their substance abuse can be classed as an addiction and most do not think it warrants alcohol or drug rehab in Canvey Island or anywhere else in the UK, for that matter.
If you do not believe you are in need of help for addiction, we would still like to speak to you. We talk to many people who do not think they are in a situation where they need help. They call because they have been pressured to do so by concerned loved ones; this is a very common scenario.
What we can tell you is that the majority of these individuals do indeed require rehab in Canvey Island and beyond. We can also tell you that your loved ones are highly unlikely to be pressuring you to get help for no reason. What may be obvious to them, may be less so to yourself. It is usually the case that the person with the addiction is the last one to know; he or she will certainly be the last one to admit it.
As there is no blood test to determine whether an individual has an addiction or not, we would ask you to be honest with yourself about your substance abuse. If you have been drinking more alcohol than you used to or taking drugs more frequently, it could be that your body has adapted to the presence of these substances. If you have built up a tolerance, you will require more drugs or alcohol to achieve the desired effect, and this could mean you are in danger of developing a physical dependence, if you have not already done so.
By calling us here at Addiction Helper, you have nothing to lose; we can either confirm your fears or put your mind at rest. If you do require professional help, we can put you in touch with a suitable drug or alcohol rehab in Canvey Island in a matter of minutes.
You Can Overcome Your Addiction with Rehab in Canvey Island
You may be feeling as if there is nothing you can do to change your circumstances. However, trust us when we say you can do something. You can get well if you are willing to admit you have a problem and then agree to get treatment. Your willingness to start down the road to recovery opens the door for all sorts of options, including inpatient and outpatient rehab in Canvey Island.
Outpatient rehab involves you visiting a treatment facility on a regularly scheduled basis at which you will receive prescription medications and counselling. At the end of each day, you return home. Outpatient rehab is routinely offered by the NHS as well as local charities and support groups.
If your problem is more severe, a residential programme at a private clinic might be a better option. This sort of rehab involves a residential stay lasting anywhere from four to 12 weeks. You actually live at the clinic, undergoing treatments with a group of other residents dealing with similar problems. Residential treatment includes medically supervised detox, one-on-one counselling, and 12-steps.
Which kind of treatment is right for you? It depends on your circumstances. By calling and speaking to one of our counsellors, you will get help figuring out where you are and what kind of treatment is best. We provide free assessments, which will give both you and us a clearer picture of what you are dealing with. With this information, we can then go on to match you to the most suitable rehab provider in your area.
