Inside rehab

It can be frightening to admit that you need help, to break down your walls and put your trust in the hands of total strangers. You could be worried about what others might think, afraid of the prying eyes of those witnessing you at your lowest, with no idea of what you might be going through.

Your fears are recognised

If you are considering rehab, this means embarking on a journey towards something unexpected, with the hopes of launching yourself into a new life. It is important to remember that your worries are normal, and it is completely natural to have these concerns. Choosing to be admitted to rehab is a big decision, one which only you can make. However, if you do choose to take the first step towards change, there are some ways to prepare yourself for what is ahead.

Tips to ease the transition

Doing some preparation before entering treatment can be invaluable, as it will give you the comfort and assurance of knowing what is to come. To help get prepared, we will explore some different methods to familiarise yourself with rehab:


Reviews on our centres

You will not have been the first person admitted to your chosen facility, and for this reason, a quick search could provide countless reviews and opinions about your treatment centre.




Rehab time table

A great way to gain a clearer idea of a typical day at rehab would be to find out more about the centre’s timetable. Doing this will help to give you a better idea of  some of the services they have to offer.
