Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Beginning your search for drug and alcohol addiction treatment can be very overwhelming. You can research numerous options to see which method suits you best. Our drug and alcohol rehab referral service can help you to find the most effective rehabilitation solution that suits your unique requirements.

Firstly, we will assess the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction through a pre-screening assessment where our expert team can get to know you better and understand your addiction’s nature in more detail. They will also assess your physical and psychological health before recommending the most suitable addiction treatment.

You can either undertake addiction treatment through free local health services like the NHS or join a private drug and alcohol rehab centre. Although some people are put off by the word private as they associate this with higher costs, this has proven to be the best effective way to recover from drug or alcohol addiction. Whilst you may be attracted to free or low-cost addiction treatment, this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best option.

Addiction treatment provided by the NHS follows a generic programme, so it’s not personalised to each person. There also tends to be a long waiting list to join a treatment plan for addiction with the NHS as they’re so overwhelmed with patients yet so understaffed. NHS addiction treatment may work for you if you have a milder addiction to alcohol or drugs, but if you’ve been suffering from addiction for some time now, we highly recommend seeing an addiction specialist ensure you’re taking the best step in recovering from substance abuse.

Although private drug and alcohol rehabs are more expensive than treatment with the NHS, the treatment you receive is likely to be much more effective as it’s delivered by addiction specialists who focus on your sole recovery. With high-specification facilities and evidence-based therapies, private alcohol and drug rehab have produced the greatest rate of successful addiction recoveries, particularly in those who undergo their treatment as an inpatient rather than an outpatient.


How Long Will I Stay at Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

The duration of your addiction treatment depends on whether you opt to receive treatment from the NHS or a private drug and alcohol rehab, whether you’ve joined as an inpatient or an outpatient, and how severe your addiction is. Typically, at a private rehab centre, your addiction treatment can last around 28 days.

Whether you’re an inpatient or an outpatient can impact the duration of your rehabilitation, as outpatient treatment offers more flexibility. As an outpatient, you remain at home throughout your rehabilitation, visiting the rehab centre each day to receive your therapy sessions. This form of addiction treatment can benefit those who need more flexibility or have a milder addiction and don’t require 24/7 supervision.

As an inpatient, you would stay at a drug and alcohol rehab centre overnight for the duration of your addiction treatment. This method has proven to be the most effective in long-term recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. You receive around-the-clock care and support from an expert team who are there to help you every step of the way. There are no distractions from the outside world, giving you the opportunity to focus solely on your recovery. Inpatient rehab will be highly recommended for those suffering from a severe addiction to alcohol or drugs so that the rehab centre can create a tailored approach to achieving the most effective rehabilitation possible.


What Happens During Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Whether you’re an inpatient or an outpatient, your treatment sessions should be centred around helping you to find the best way to rehabilitate. Your therapy sessions will be carefully selected to ensure they benefit your recovery. These will include psychological and physical therapies to remove your mental and physical connections to the substance.

Initially, you’ll likely begin with a drug or alcohol detox to remove the toxins from your body and reduce your physical cravings by gradually lessening your substance consumption in a controlled way. During this detox, it’s likely that you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, headaches, dizziness, insomnia, seizures, or delirium tremens (the DT’s). Managing these symptoms is why it’s so crucial to have an expert medical team by your side throughout the detoxification process. Any attempts at an alcohol and drug detox at home alone are highly dangerous.

Once you’ve successfully completed your detox, we will move on to your psychological therapies to break your mental connection to drugs or alcohol. These therapies could include counselling, relapse prevention, dialectical behaviour therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, and mediation therapy.

Not only would you receive physical and psychological therapies but also therapies that focus on improving your general well-being throughout your rehabilitation. Our drug and alcohol rehab Great Wyrley provide relaxation and sleep management, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, low-level laser therapy, fitness therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and nutritional supplement therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I’m struggling after leaving the clinic?
Most rehabs offer a comprehensive aftercare programme as part of their treatment. You will still have access to support, care and guidance for up to 12 months after the completion of your treatment.
What is outpatient treatment?
Residential rehab is a type of inpatient addiction treatment – meaning you stay there for the duration of the programme. This is generally a minimum of 28 days. You can also opt for outpatient addiction treatment, of the type available on the NHS as well as by private providers. This has some advantages in terms of cost and not having to remove yourself from your regular life and commitments. It is often less effective than residential treatment, however. You will have to manage your own appointments and detox and will still be surrounded by the people, places, triggers and temptations associated with your drinking or drug use.
What side effects could I experience during detoxification?
Drug and alcohol detox typically involves various withdrawal symptoms or side effects. These can vary widely depending on the substance involved and other factors. Alcohol withdrawal, for example, can involve a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms such as:    • Headache  • Nausea and vomiting  • Muscle aches and spasms  • Tremors  • Anxiety  • Insomnia  • Fever  • Hallucinations  • Seizures
