West Glamorgan Rehabs

Addiction Helper Rehab LIVESEARCH shows every Alcohol and Drug Rehab centre in west glamorgan and provides a complete overview of each facility including reviews from previous treatment centre residents.

If you are familiar with the history of West Glamorgan, you know that the former administrative county once included the districts of Swansea, Port Talbot, Neath, and the Lliw Valley. Moreover, even though West Glamorgan has been only a ceremonial county since 1996, there are some things that haven’t changed. For example, there are still people living in West Glamorgan with substance abuse and addiction problems.

Addiction treatment centres in West Glamorgan and throughout Wales are experts at helping people overcome drugs and alcohol. Even those with compulsive behaviour disorders can be helped. Anyone who is willing to seek professional treatment and dedicate him/herself wholly to recovery can get well. There is no problem so severe that it cannot be treated.

It is important that you step back and evaluate your situation honestly. A minor substance abuse problem left untreated can quickly escalate to full-blown addiction without you knowing it is happening. A full-blown addiction can:

  • completely destroy your health
  • devastate your personal relationships
  • devastate your finances
  • cost you your job
  • result in premature death.

The risks of letting an addiction go untreated are just too high. More importantly, life has far too many positive things to offer for you to fritter it away under the influence of drugs or alcohol. There are sunsets to enjoy, family activities to participate in, hobbies to develop, and skills to master.

Understand Your Treatment Options

One of our jobs at Addiction Helper is to explain the various drug and alcohol treatment options to our clients. Before we get to those treatments, we want to first explain why you need professional help. There are three things to consider.

First, sustained drug or alcohol use affects the way the human brain works. Those effects cover everything from how the body physically functions to the way an individual thinks. Without professional treatment, it is nearly impossible to restore the brain to proper functioning. It just cannot happen on its own.

Second, attempting to stop drinking or taking drugs on your own could result in serious and permanent injury. Drugs and alcohol affect the way the body functions in ways most of us do not understand. For example, coming off alcohol after years of dependence can result in temporary seizures as the body adapts. A person could seriously injure him/herself in a fall during such a seizure. Professional treatment is necessary to cope with any potential medical emergencies.

Third, persistent drug and alcohol use has negative effects on the entire family. Stopping entirely may help you heal physically and emotionally, but it does nothing for your loved ones. You will all need group treatment in order to restore your family’s emotional well-being.

With that said, there are three primary options for treatment:

  • Outpatient ??? The NHS and some local charities offer outpatient treatment. This treatment involves visiting facilities on a regular schedule to receive medical care, counselling, and other appropriate therapies. It is for the least severe of problems. It requires the most self-discipline.
  • Home-Based Rehab ??? There are times when a client does not need residential treatment yet his/her problem is still severe enough to prevent him/her from travelling for outpatient treatment. The solution is home-based rehab supervised by a registered nurse or other professional. This treatment is only recommended when an individual has a strong support system at home.
  • Residential ??? The most successful treatment by far is residential rehab. A residential programme involves living at a rehab facility for 3 to 12 weeks. During that time, doctors, therapists, and counsellors employ a list of treatment strategies designed to address addiction from a holistic perspective.

Deciding What’s Right for You

Addiction Helper counsellors go above and beyond just explaining the different treatment options. We also offer free evaluations designed to help you determine what kind of treatment is best for you. We do this because we know there is no single treatment that works for everyone. You are an individual with your needs, circumstances, and history. You need a treatment plan that speaks directly to who you are.

When you contact us by telephone or through this website, we want to have an open and frank discussion about your drug or alcohol problem. We want you to ask questions; we want to hear about your struggles, your fears, and your insecurities. We want to know as much as we can so that we can provide you with a proper evaluation.

Rest assured that our counsellors are fully trained and competent in providing accurate evaluations. Once we assess the seriousness of your problem, we can put together a list of rehab facilities offering treatments most likely to help you. Ultimately, you choose the treatment you think best.

Delaying Treatment Won’t Help

We have given you a lot of information to think about thus far. The question now is what you will do with it. We urge you not to delay treatment if you believe you might have a drug or alcohol problem. Delaying will not help; it will only make a bad situation worse.

If it’s any comfort, you are not alone in your reluctance to receive treatment. It is very normal to hesitate because:

  • you are afraid of what treatment might entail
  • you are afraid of facing life without drugs or alcohol
  • you genuinely believe you can stop at any time
  • you don’t think you can afford treatment
  • you have given up hope and saw no reason to get better.

We understand all of those things. We understand you might have a legitimate reason to be hesitant about entering rehab. However, would you at least be willing to call us and talk about it? The counsellors at Addiction Helper will not lecture you or try to convince you what a rotten person you are. They will not patronise you or dismiss your problems as being illegitimate. Our counsellors have but one mission: to help you figure out your drug and alcohol problem so that you can get the help you need.

Every day you put off treatment is another day lost to addiction. It is another day you do not get to enjoy your children; it is another day you do not have the opportunity to advance your career; it is another day that you completely miss everything going on in Mid Glamorgan. You can put a stop to it by making the decision to receive treatment.

For You and Your Family

We wholeheartedly agree with the idea that substance abuse and addiction are family problems. In other words, you are not the only one suffering from drugs or alcohol. Your family is suffering as well. They live every day with the pain of knowing you are destroying your life. They also suffer when you lose your temper, when there are financial problems, and when you disappear for days on end without telling anyone.

If you are not willing to receive treatment for yourself, are you ready to do it for your family? They want you to get well more than anyone else you know. Show them how much you truly care about them by getting in touch with us at Addiction Helper.
