Overcoming an addiction is a long, hard journey. A recovery combines challenging the way you behave, and altering how you see addictive behaviours.
It is also the process of managing and ending a mental and physical dependence on a substance. To succeed in your road to recovery, you’ll need to change how you view your own addiction and look to maintain a fresh mindset for the rest of your recovery and on an ongoing basis.
During your time at our rehab clinic in Acocks Green, Addiction Advocates will create a treatment plan tailored for you and your recovery. Throughout your treatment, we will provide regular reports and updates on your progress.

How does Rehab work?
Addiction Advocates provide both outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab. Outpatient treatment is usually reserved for those who have more control over their affairs and are able to recover at home in safety with support from their family.
Inpatient treatment is for those who are experiencing advanced states of addiction and do not have a support mechanism or come from an unsafe home environment. Inpatient treatment sees our clients temporarily move into our residential rehab clinic for the duration of their treatment.
Treatment is administered on both one on and one an individual environments, but private drug and alcohol rehab with Addiction Advocates will be delivered to what you require and we will ensure you are treated as an individual at all points of your treatment.
Upon your arrival at our rehab clinic, we will perform a comprehensive assessment of your physical and mental health. We will also provide consultations with addiction specialists to determine the extent of your addiction.

Addiction Therapy & Treatment Options in Acocks Green
When researching addiction treatment, you should consider the different treatment options available. We provide many different therapies to help those who are in the distressing spiral that can be caused by psychological and mental health problems.
Addiction and mental health conditions go hand in hand, and being diagnosed with a condition such as bipolar disorder is common. If you are diagnosed by Addiction Advocates as having an addiction alongside a mental health condition, we’ll issue dual-diagnosis and treat you as such.
This kind of treatment, which is both targeted and specialised, will treat both conditions. An addiction is rarely overcome if the underlying cause is not treated. We provide treatment options for not only addictions, but eating disorder treatment, anxiety treatment, and depression treatment.
Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox
Drug detox and alcohol detox is tough. This is a difficult aspect of your recovery journey that breaks your dependency. Our medically assisted detox helps individuals through this difficult time and the sometimes painful withdrawal symptoms you may experience.
By providing detox medication, we are able to safely help you through the worst of your withdrawal. Not everyone treated by Addiction Advocates requires a detox, but this is a service we provide and our medical professionals will be able to advise you on whether or not this is something you require.
A detox takes place in our residential rehab clinics so that our medical team can ensure your safety and provide you with updates on your progress, as well as administering any medicine that is required for the advancement of your treatment.
Therapy for Alcohol and Drug Addiction
When your detox is completed, the next step of recovery is rehabilitation. You will receive a combination of individual and group therapy, which will help you to shape a fresh new mentality.
Your one to one sessions will involve a combination of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These therapies discuss your addictive behaviours, your approach and attitude to them and how to make alterations.
Group therapy sessions are a version of talking therapy where you can discuss your addiction and your new outlook on life with trained counsellors and your peers. We also offer more holistic therapies, like mediation and yoga classes.
How long is Rehab?
It’s difficult to provide an outright answer as those with a more severe addiction can expect to stay in rehab for longer. Our programmes generally last between two weeks and three months. Those who stay longer have found the extra time to be beneficial and a longer stay may be in your best interests.
We would generally you to be in rehab for a minimum of 60 days but other clients may find themselves only needing 30 days as their addiction is not as advanced.
Cost of Alcohol and Drug Rehab
For 30 days of residential rehab, you can expect to pay between £5000 – £10,000. The cost will be broken down but the most expensive parts of your treatment are residential accommodation and the cost of detox.
Whilst that might seem expensive, private drug and alcohol rehab is a better alternative to not having an addiction treatment. If cost is a concern, you should consider how much of a cost your addiction has on your health and your finances. If you have private insurance, you should research whether this can be used as a way to fund your rehab.
