Addiction affects countless lives across the UK and can come in many different forms. Whether it’s substance misuse, gambling addiction, or alcohol addiction, these issues can have a profound impact on your mental health, relationships, and overall well-being.
Thankfully, there’s hope for recovery through therapy and addiction treatment. However, it’s important that you find the right addiction therapist that suits you and your needs. One size does not fit all when it comes to addiction support, so choosing the right therapy provider is key if you want to break free from addiction.
If you, a friend, family member or work colleague are struggling with an addiction, we are here to help. At Rehubs, we can provide you with the addiction support you need to overcome your addiction and begin a new, sober life.
Read on to find out how you can find an addiction therapist near you, and the different types of therapy available for addiction.
First of all, if you are considering addiction therapy, you are not alone. There are over 36 million people with drug use disorders around the world, and alcohol use disorder is responsible for around 6% of global deaths.
If you are thinking about seeking addiction therapy, you have taken the first step. You have acknowledged your addiction.
The signs of addiction can vary from person to person and can manifest differently depending on the type of addiction. For example, signs of heroin addiction may be different from signs of cannabis addiction.
One of the key signs of addiction is the loss of control over taking a substance or drinking alcohol. You may continue to drink alcohol or take drugs despite the negative effects it’s having on your life – including your physical and mental health.
Likewise, you may desire to quit but struggle to do so. You may have tried to quit but ended up relapsing. If this is the case, the good news is that there is professional support out there for you. You can break free from the grips of addiction.
Depending on the nature of the addiction, you may also experience withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop. This occurs when you have a physical dependence. Withdrawal symptoms can make it much more difficult for you to quit without medical support.
If you are constantly thinking about the substance you’re addicted to, or you neglect work, relationships and other aspects of your life, you could benefit from addiction therapy.
You don’t have to deal with your addiction alone; there is support there for you. Seeking drug and alcohol addiction therapy is the first step to becoming your best self.
Addiction therapy can help you to embrace a new way of life. At Rehubs, we encourage you to become the best version of yourself.
Therapy can help you to overcome your addiction in many ways. First of all, addiction therapists can help you to build your confidence and resilience.
They can empower you with skills and tools to manage cravings. You can apply these coping skills in your everyday life to deal with unpleasant feelings and situations in a healthier way.
If you have any existing mental health conditions (dual diagnosis), such as depression or anxiety, therapy can help to address this. Therapy can help you to become more content in life, and to manage the ups and downs of life more effectively.
Additionally, therapy for alcohol or drug addiction can help cultivate a sense of purpose. After completing therapy, you should be able to navigate life’s challenges and understand how valuable you are. Ultimately, therapy can help you to make a lasting recovery, and begin a new chapter of your life.
Addiction therapists will use a wide range of therapeutic approaches. What works for you may not work for somebody else, and vice versa.
At Rehubs, we combine a range of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), positive psychology and behavioural neuroscience. Our therapy can give you the best chance of beginning a healthier, sober life.
Combining psycho-social therapy (group therapy) with one-to-one therapy is the most effective way to tackle addiction. This is why 95% of residential rehabs do it – and that’s why we do it at Rehubs.
CBT is one of the most popular therapies. It is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including anxiety and depression. This approach can be beneficial in treating alcohol addiction and drug addiction.
During CBT sessions, you will work with an addiction counsellor. They will help you to understand certain negative thought patterns and behaviours that could be contributing to your addiction.
This type of therapy can be effective in treating addiction when there is a strong emotional component involved – for example, self-harm.
DBT can help you to gain a higher level of control over your emotions. It can also help to enhance your coping skills, allowing you to deal with negative emotions and situations more positively.
Motivational interviewing aims to improve your motivation and commitment to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence about addiction. If you are struggling with substance misuse, this approach can be very beneficial.
The good news is that these therapies can be completed online. Online therapy is a convenient option if you have other responsibilities, or are unable to travel. It offers a convenient and flexible way to receive addiction therapy without the need for physical appointments.
Many licensed therapists offer online sessions, making it easier for you to find a suitable therapist, even if they are not in your immediate vicinity.
At Rehubs, our online rehab programme involves personalised programmes and daily sessions. We offer one-to-one counselling and give you access to a wide range of useful resources that can help you along your journey to recovery.

Our online addiction recovery programme includes a combination of evidence-based therapies, resources, and practical exercises. It will empower you with the tools, knowledge and confidence to begin a new, healthier life.
Part of our addiction recovery plan involves daily group sessions. In these sessions, you will be able to connect with others in a similar situation. This can help you feel less alone – you can share your experiences with others, and learn from each other. You will not be alone throughout your sobriety journey.
These daily sessions take place in the evenings for your convenience. This means you can continue your work or other life commitments and still make the most of addiction therapy.
Our psychotherapists at Rehubs will also offer you one-on-one counselling. These counselling sessions will guide your personal growth journey, and help to unlock your higher self. You will have a safe space to heal, grow, and reflect.
