When you are suffering from an addiction, there comes a time when all you can think about is quitting. Yet because your body requires the substance (be it alcohol or drugs) to feel ‘normal’, you convince yourself that you will be addicted forever. You start to believe that it isn’t possible to quit, simply because that is what your central nervous system is telling you.
Still though, you might wish to stop drinking or quit taking drugs for good. You might remember a time when you had leftover money from your wage, and didn’t spend all that excess on drink or drugs… you might long for a simpler time, like back before you first took heroin or cocaine, and idolise this time as a period of innocence…
We at Help 4 Addiction are here to tell you that neither alcohol addiction or drug addiction are necessary for you to proceed with your life. You could, if you were determined enough, wake up tomorrow and not go one up. You could skip the trip to the dealer or the shops for more drink. You could avoid being drunk or high and stay sober.
We are here to encourage you, gently pushing you towards the rehab clinic or detox centres you need to get off drink and drugs. We are here to help you change the passing thought about more innocent times into something real. We are here to tell you that you have the key to your own recovery within you already – and all it takes to bring it out is determination, persistence, and the right support systems… systems that we can help you find.
So if you have decided today is the last day, that this is the last bottle or the last hit you will ever take, then we are the people you need on your side. Connect with Help 4 addiction and we will narrow down the overwhelming world of rehab for addictions in the UK, into manageable, bite-sized chunks. Don’t let the range of choices in rehab clinics overwhelm you and put you off recovery. Come to us instead and let us find something tailored to you, giving you the best chances to quit drink or drugs.
It starts with a phone call. You will find us at the other end of the line on 0203 955 7700. If a phone call seems like it is too personal, then that’s fine too. We have an online consultation service to get the ball rolling for those with social anxiety. However you do it, the important thing is that you get in touch. Together we can find the right Cornwall rehab clinic for you.
Do I need To Find A Rehab Centre Near Me?
You can choose! There tend to be two options from a professional rehab clinic in terms of whether or not you can live there. A residential rehab facility allows you to book a room with them for a certain period of time, at the end of which you will be discharged and, more than likely, have aftercare to ensure you don’t slip back into old habits. You would normally get this option from a private rehab facility.
When you choose an NHS rehab centre near you in Cornwall, you will likely be treated as an outpatient, although some NHS rehab clinics are residential too. Being seen as an outpatient lets you go home at the end of each day, hold down a job, or look after your family while getting the help for addiction that you need. Using this technique for recovery you will learn all the same tools as you do in a residential centre, but you will take longer to learn these tools.
We looked at the pros and cons of each type, below.
The Pros and Cons of Outpatient Rehab in Cornwall
There are a few pros and cons to each type of rehab. When you opt for outpatient rehab in Cornwall, the positives are:
- As an outpatient, you can see therapists and counsellors for the help you need, without having to spend the night
- You don’t need to be away from your family, work, or social circle for a length of time
- You get the support of the rehab clinic for a longer period of time since the therapies are less intensive
While some of the negatives of getting outpatient treatment for alcohol or drug addiction in Cornwall include:
- It has a less impressive success rate than full time residential rehab does
- You are not separate from your triggers, your habits, or your dealer
The Pros and Cons of Residential Rehab
Similarly, there are pros and cons to living in a full-time residential rehab. The best things about a full time centre include:
- Having every need looked after so you have nothing to worry about while you recover from alcoholism or drug addiction in Cornwall
- You are taken away from the source of your drink or drug addiction and the habits you have formed by which you use them
- They have a high success rate meaning more chance of you quitting drink or drugs for good.
Whereas the worst things about a residential rehab facility in Cornwall are:
- You are away from your family, friends, and workplace for at least 28 days
- It often costs more than an outpatient rehab clinic

Online Therapy – A New Tool
There are a few new tools on the market when it comes to adding to your toolbox for fighting against your drug or alcohol addiction. One of these is Online therapy while the other is the possibility of home detoxing.
Online therapy is just what it sounds like. Many addictions have their roots in your younger life, in trauma or in depression or anxiety. Many people turn to drugs to help manage mental health conditions, for example, and talking therapies get to the bottom of these addictions. Once addressed, you will learn healthy coping mechanisms to cope better in future, without turning to drink or drugs.
Online therapy lets you take part in the talking therapy process without even having to leave your own home. You can check in with a group on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, and perhaps even get your one on one therapies or counselling this way.
At Home Detoxing
Home detox is another way in which the world of rehab is changing. If you meet certain conditions, and you suffer from drinking too much as opposed to drug misuse in Cornwall, you might be eligible to get a home detox kit from Help 4 Addiction. These kits involve a consultation with a specialist, who will assess whether or not you can go ahead with it. The kit will include everything you need to safely get off drink at home. You will need to have someone with you during this process to ensure that you are safe and cared for, when you cannot care for yourself. We all know detox isn’t easy, so you need to be sure there is someone who can bring you food or water and be there for you during the worst of it.
Contact us on 0203 966 7700 to see if you qualify for home detox or for online therapies.
