It can be difficult to seek treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab in Liverpool when you are unsure what treatment will be like. One of the biggest benefits of staying at a residential rehab clinic is receiving medically assisted alcohol detoxification. By reaching out to our referral team, we can find the best drug or alcohol detox programme for your needs.

Drug and alcohol abuse causes a huge strain on the body, and overcoming physical dependence on drugs or alcohol is the first step in the recovery journey. During the detox period, you will be monitored by addiction professionals who will manage your withdrawal symptoms and ensure your safety.

Uncomfortable drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be eased with prescription drugs which the medical team at our alcohol rehab centres can provide you with. This ensures that the process is as safe and easy for you as possible.

To find out more about available detoxification programmes near you, give us a call at 0800 012 6088.

How Long Does Detox Take?

The detox period lasts for different lengths of time depending on the substance use are addicted to, the severity of your addiction, as well as other genetic factors such as metabolism, gender, weight and more.

For an alcohol detox, detox typically takes 5 days but this can vary. Prescription drug detox typically takes longer, from 8 days.

Addiction Treatment and Therapies

A key benefit of attending a residential rehab centre is the range of addiction therapy options that are provided. At one of our inpatient rehab centres you will receive the following treatments:

  • Supervised detox
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Individual therapy with a counsellor
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Holistic therapies

Addiction treatments address the psychological element of addiction, which is key to achieving long term recovery in Liverpool.

Aftercare in Liverpool

In combination with your relapse prevention plan, aftercare services will be available in Liverpool to help you maintain addiction recovery.

Most of our partnering rehab centres offer one year of free aftercare services to residents who have successfully completed residential rehabilitation. The sessions are held weekly and work to ensure that your mental health is good and you have an opportunity to discuss any concerns that you have.

Aftercare provides you with the motivation, guidance and tools to sustain long-term recovery and prevent addiction relapse, which is why it is so beneficial to attend.

Find out more about our aftercare or call a member of our team on 0800 012 6088 or fill out our contact form.

Do I Need to Go to Rehab?

Knowing when you need to seek treatment for drug or alcohol addiction can be hard, especially if you do not realise you are dependent. Reach out to a specialist addiction team to learn more about alcohol rehab in Liverpool and to discuss your drug or alcohol abuse.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms of Addiction

Symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction are different for everyone, and withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the substance abuse and addiction severity.

Cocaine addiction withdrawal symptoms include strong cravings, psychological symptoms such as anxiety and depression, and insomnia.

Alcohol and drug addiction symptoms include more physical withdrawal, such as nausea, stomach aches and pains, diarrhoea, sweating, headaches and appetite changes.


How Much Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Cost?

The average cost of rehab depends on the type of treatment you choose and the length of time you spend in rehab. Private residential rehab centres are more expensive forms of treatment than outpatient addiction treatment, and where you receive treatment will also factor into the overall cost.

If you are unsure if you can afford private rehab, there are a number of addiction treatment options available to you.

Average Cost of Private Rehab in the UK

The cost of rehab treatment can vary depending on the location, the severity of your addiction and the length of stay.

Investing into your own recovery can be expensive, but it offers an unmatched level of care and attention which gives you the best chance of full alcohol or drug addiction recovery.

While we can’t put an exact price tag on rehab, since they vary from facility to facility, we can say that you should expect to pay from £4,000 – £6,000+ for a 7-night stay.

However, we recommend a 28-night stay as this is among the most effective durations and grants you the time to recover and prepare for the outside world.


How Long Does Rehab in Liverpool Last For?

Rehab clinics offer different lengths of addiction treatment programmes depending on your budget and recovery requirements.

Detox-only programmes are typically 7-10 days long, but the majority of private rehabilitation centres recommend a 28-day programme or more.


Outpatient Rehab Treatment vs. Inpatient Rehab Treatment in Liverpool

One of the biggest decisions to make when you’re deciding on rehab is whether you want to recover on an outpatient basis, or in a residential rehab in Liverpool.

Outpatient treatment services are a good option if you require local addiction help and have a low budget, whereas inpatient treatment offers a more intense form of treatment.

Alternatives to Private Rehab in Liverpool

There are numerous treatment options available in Liverpool if you need help. These include:

NHS Outpatient Treatment

Many people access treatment for drug and alcohol addictions on an outpatient basis by visiting their local GP. Here, you can be referred to a local charity or community-based service.

This may be a good option for you and is especially popular for people with mild drug or alcohol addictions. You will be given an appointment and you will get access to local therapy sessions and discussion groups with people who have shared similar experiences.

However, do note that there can be significant wait times for therapists and appointments. Nonetheless, there are still opportunities within other outpatient charities and help centres, you can find local Liverpool rehab support groups below.

Dart Drug and Alcohol Service Team
Windsor House
40 Upper Parliament Street

0151 703 0679

Basement Advisory

With outpatient addiction treatment, you will go home and carry on your day-to-day life in pretty much the same way, so you should have a good support system in place to keep you on the right track as this takes a lot of self-will.
