The Benefits of a Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Private drug and alcohol rehabs are proven to be most effective for most cases of addiction treatment.

Private rehab facilities, like our rehab centre in Balsall Heath East, offer a range of treatment services to help overcome many different types of addiction, including drug and alcohol addiction, cocaine addiction, and cannabis addiction.

Inpatient rehab programmes normally last for a month, and the first stage will be drug or alcohol detox. This is the process of the addicted substance leaving the body and is the stage at which unpleasant withdrawal symptoms will most likely be experienced. At a private rehab centre, you can be sure that friendly, professionally trained staff will be there to help you through it.

A private rehab centre also has a good mix of treatment programmes available, meaning there is flexibility for each individual person to find the combination of therapies and treatments that will work for them.


How can Addiction Advocates help?

At Addiction Advocates we have lots of experience in finding the appropriate treatment for each person. We’re there to support you, whether you’re suffering from substance misuse issues yourself, or have identified them in someone else.

Taking the first step if you’re suffering from addiction to drugs or alcohol can be daunting, but the positive effects of seeking help far outweigh the anxiety or uncertainty of reaching out. We’re here to guide you through the process, and in our self-referral process, you’ll have instant support as we explain the initial recovery process and help you identify the most appropriate treatment options.

Watching someone that you care about lapse into substance abuse and addiction can be deeply troubling and upsetting. The uncertainty of what’s best to do coupled with a lack of direction as to where you can find support can make it seem hopeless.

Through our family referrals, we can help you find help for a struggling family member. We can also provide guidance for staging a family intervention. It’s important to remember that when you’re seeking help for a loved one, just because you want them to get help doesn’t necessarily mean that they do, so treatment isn’t always instantaneous, but it helps them know that they have a network of support there for them, and we can help facilitate a treatment plan.

Our friend referrals can help you seek help for a friend by providing you with information on the handling and preventing addiction, answering any questions you may have, considering when an alcohol intervention may be appropriate and contacting your friend to assess their mental state and recommend treatment options.


What happens once you leave Rehab?

Leaving rehab may feel like the hard work is behind you, but overcoming addiction isn’t as simple as flicking a switch on the desire to use substances, hard work will be required after leaving rehab to ensure long term success.

During your treatment at our centre in Balsall Heath East, staff will help you develop an aftercare programme that means you have the right kind of support after leaving to help you avoid relapsing. Each programme is different for each individual, but will likely include a mixture of therapies, support groups, and realistic, actionable goals to help you stay motivated in your new life.

Through treatment, you may have come to understand the cause of your addiction and when you return to your previous environment, it’s going to take a lot of work to identify and avoid the triggers that led to addiction in the first place.

Mental health is inextricably linked to addiction, and while you will have access to counselling services in rehab, this may be something you continues to work on afterwards. As well as addiction treatment, Addiction Advocates can also help with treatment for anxiety and depression.
