Drug and Alcohol Rehab Coventry: What to Expect
We understand that the prospect of rehab can be incredibly daunting, especially if you don’t know what to expect. That’s why we have laid out below the typical stages of drug and alcohol rehabilitation from detox to aftercare so there are no surprises along the way.
Pre-admission Phone Call & Assessment
The first stage is simple, all we want to do is get to know you a little better. Whether that be you as the person suffering from addiction, or the person who is referring somebody else.
This simply gives us the chance to better understand things like the substances involved, how you’re currently coping, any past relapses etc.
The better picture that we get of the addiction means for a better tailor made plan overall. This is when we’ll talk to you about how long we recommend you stay and also where you want to stay as we have rehabs all over the UK for you to choose from depending on your specifications.
Once we’ve explained what being in drug and / or alcohol rehab is like, you’ll decide on the best place for your recovery and we will help you set a date that you will be admitted to the residential alcohol or drug rehab coventry.
Detox and Rehab Treatment
The next step once you’re admitted is either a detox treatment or straight to rehab treatment. This is dependent on whether detox is necessary, as withdrawals range in intensity and some may not require medical assistance.
For example, behavioural addictions present psychological withdrawal symptoms, meaning a detox clinic isn’t always necessary. Whether you need a medically assisted detox or not would be determined during the assessment so there is no need to worry, we handle everything.
A detox will typically last anywhere from 5-10 days, it will be in a specified detox clinic in which you’ll receive care and treatment including prescription medications to make the withdrawal process manageable.
This is the safest way to proceed with a detox so it is what we highly recommend. Once the detox has been completed, rehabilitation commences which lasts for as long as your chosen programme.
The length of time can vary but most in-patients stay for 28-nights.
Aftercare Post-Drug and Alcohol Rehab Coventry
Aftercare is an incredibly important stage of recovery from drugs or alcohol, or both. Once you have completed your treatment, the hard work isn’t quite over, while in rehab you’ll be prepared for environmental triggers, actually combating them is something else entirely.
For this reason, our partnering rehab centres offer free aftercare for 12 months after your discharge. Alongside this, you’ll be encouraged to utilise free help groups and services post-rehab.
This may be organisations like Change Grow Live Coventry or frequent meetings like Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous Coventry, you can find the contacts to these in our FAQs.
Addiction Treatments at Drug and Alcohol Rehab Coventry
The type of treatments that you will complete through rehab will be identified upon the completion of your assessment, and completed during your stay. Since addiction can impact all individuals differently, on physical and psychological scales, varying addiction treatment options will be encouraged.
However, in the majority of cases, you can expect to undergo:
- Talking therapies
- Support groups or group sessions
- Detox programmes

- Individual therapy
- Art therapy
- Dual diagnosis treatment (for mental health issues such as depression or anxiety)

We’ll be with you every step of the way, and if you have any worries about what treatments are like simply get in touch and we can help.
