Quick Access

We here at Help4Addiction are an organisation created specifically to help users get off drugs or stop drinking, for good. If you live in the city of Cambridge, we are able to connect you to the rehab clinic that suits you best.

You might not realise this, but there are so many rehab clinics in the city of Cambridge that it is overwhelming – especially if you are doing it for the first time (as many of our clients are). Rehab is daunting. Not only do you need to worry about detoxing from drugs or alcohol, you have to resist cravings while going through major changes in your life. It isn’t easy – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t the most rewarding thing you will ever do with your life. If you are able to get through a course of rehab and stay off substance abuse for the rest of your life, you will be in a position of power the likes of which you have never experienced before. Taking control of your life and refusing to do any more drugs, or refusing to stay embroiled in alcoholism, will show you your true power as a living, breathing being. You will never feel more empowered than you will when you finally master that addiction.

If you are interested in giving it a go, we here at Help 4 Addiction specialise in connecting you to the right rehab clinic for you. We will ask you a series of questions, all focused on finding the best match in terms of treatments. You could be the type of person that will best recover when removed from your triggers, or when taken away from your dealers, and therefore need a residential rehab clinic. You might be the type of spiritual person who will respond best to holistic therapies like Kinetic Chain Release, Reiki or massages. Whichever tools you want to use to get off drink or drugs, we can help you find them… it’s what we do.

So if this sounds like something you are interested in, we want you to call us for a chat. The chat could be informal, based around a potential future date for quitting that you might not even go through with – or we can fix a plan in stone that helps you get off drink or drugs. We can find your residential rehab near you, or we can find the ultimate outpatient rehab clinic to get you free from addiction. The choice is in your hands. All we do is provide the support that you need, to reassure you that you are not alone. It is possible to quit a substance addiction. We can help.

Call 0203 955 7700 today, to begin getting free of the cycle. Drink and drugs don’t need to control your life. You should be in control. Take it back.

Detoxing in Cambridge – The First Stage of Breaking Free of Addiction

There are two types of detox, one for drink and one for drugs. They both differ in terms of withdrawal symptoms and length of time. We went into more detail on each individual detox type, below.

Detox for Alcohol Addictions

Alcohol detox tends to take less time than drug detox might. This depends on the type of drugs taken, of course. When you go through Alcohol detox you spend a few days waiting on all of the alcohol to be out of your system. Coupled with the symptoms of withdrawal, you also need to fight those cravings. We would advise that you go through alcohol addiction rehab in a specialised facility although you may be eligible to go through at-home detox for alcoholism.

If you do qualify to detox at home, you can learn more about it on our page, here. If you are able to go through with it, be sure that you still check in to a rehab clinic afterwards. There are also specialist centres that deal exclusively with detoxing from drink or drugs and, should you choose to use Help 4 Addiction to quit drinking, we can direct you towards the best one to suit your needs.

Personalised Support For Your Recovery

We provide personalised support and resources for addiction recovery. Take the first step towards a brighter future today.

Detox for Drug Addictions

Detox from a drug addiction is slightly different. First of all, the symptoms you experience will depend entirely on the drug you were addicted to. If you suffered a heroin addiction your detox will be substituted with Methadone, which is a slightly less addictive substance. The team supporting you will then provide lesser drugs for you to get off heroin in a safe manner, sort of like providing you with stepping-stones. This is because withdrawing from heroin is incredibly dangerous if it isn’t managed properly. It might cause you to suffer a cardiac arrest if you were to suddenly stop taking it after years of misuse.

Similarly, if you are suffering from a cocaine addiction, the process for detox will be hard to go through. These are highly addictive substances that literally change the way your body works. When you are exposed to a substance for a long time, your body gets used to processing it through its system. When you suddenly take that substance away, your body needs to ‘rewrite’ what it knows. This can take a few days or a few weeks. It is likely that you will never be comfortable in the presence of the substance again. However, once you are through detox you might never want to!

Once you are free of the drink or drug addiction, or specifically free of those chemicals at least, then you can recover from that addiction safely, healthily, and with all the support you need. Call us today if this sounds like something you are interested in. We can be reached on 0203 955 7700.

Are Drink and Drugs a Problem in Cambridge?

Next, we took a closer look at how big of a problem drug addiction or alcoholism were in Cambridge. We know that alcoholism is an issue plaguing Britain at the moment, with the NHS recording slightly more than 5,000 alcohol specific deaths every year and countless more incidents of injury. We also know that this is a country-wide problem – but what about alcohol addictions specific to Cambridge? We did a little digging to try and find out.

The first thing we noticed about the problems with drugs and alcohol in Cambridge is that the university is so worried about them, they provide their own guidance on how addictions should be dealt with. Cambridge is a high-pressure university so it is understandable that young people might turn to drink or drugs to cope with exam stress. Another valid point regarding alcohol consumption and the Cambridge area is the research done on drinking here. As a university and college city, Cambridge has contributed greatly to studies on alcoholism. One of their most recent was last year, when they discovered that there is no real ‘safe’ limit for consumption of alcohol.

As for drugs in Cambridge, it was only a couple of years ago that the council was dealing with an ‘out of control drug use problem in the centre of the city. Cambridgeshire Live went so far as to point out that people were shooting heroin only a handful of yards from the police station! The Varsity News has contributed to more recent reporting on student use of drugs. They find that students are partially driving demand for the class A drugs that are plaguing our country. If there is no demand, then there can be no supply… but we think that is a step too far. A drug addict is a victim of circumstance in more cases than you might think. Besides, quitting is not an easy thing to do. That doesn’t mean, however, that it is not worthwhile.

Call us today if you are a Cambridge student hooked on drink or drugs and let us help connect you to the support you need. Our number is 0203 955 7700.
