How does rehab work in Oldbury?

The first step in your recovery is asking for help. The team at Addiction Advocates will then arrange an initial assessment so that we can find out a little more about you, your addiction, mental health and readiness to recover. Once we have this, we can then recommend a drug and alcohol rehab centre that suits your needs, requirements and budget.

You might be wondering what happens during alcohol and drug rehab, and it varies from clinic to clinic. But one thing’s for sure, once there, you’ll have access to a variety of physical and psychological treatment options as well as dual diagnosis therapy which supports those struggling with mental health concerns.

The most common types of therapy and treatment services include cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational therapy, art, drama and even meditation as well as group therapy and individual talking sessions. As part of the process, you may also be required to complete a detox but this will be led and monitored by a team of doctors and nurses to ensure your body is coping.


Addiction therapy and treatment options in Oldbury

Choosing the right rehab for you could be the difference between your recovery being successful or not. That’s why, when you get in touch with us as Addiction Advocates, we’ll get to know you, what makes you tick, your triggers, fears and exactly what you want out of life.

Everyone is different, and there’s a rehab centre out there for every kind of person. What’s more, we’re here to help you to find it in order to treat your addiction.

In the UK, you have the choice between inpatient rehab and outpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment, which is also known as residential rehab, involves you staying at the centre while carrying out therapy during the day. Outpatient treatment means you’d be attending the centre every day and staying at home overnight. There isn’t a right or wrong decision and we can help you to weigh up your options.


Medical alcohol and drug detox

As part of your therapy for alcohol and drug addiction, you may need to detox. This is the process that removes any toxic substances from the body. One of the best reasons to join a rehab programme is because your detox can be led and controlled by a team of medical professionals.

Withdrawal symptoms and side effects can make it very hard for individuals to successfully complete detoxes at home but when it’s monitored and in a treatment centre, the success rates are higher. With a team of addiction specialists by your side, there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to drug or alcohol detox. If you have any questions about the process, we’re always just a phone call away.


How long is rehab?

This really depends on the rehab centre you choose, how well you respond to treatment as well as how long your programme lasts for. Typically though, the private drug and alcohol rehab process lasts for up to 90 days though.

The support and guidance doesn’t stop the moment your programme ends either. You’ll be provided with a tailored aftercare plan, a dedicated helpline and contact, and also be given the details of local support groups to help you to sustain your recovery.

Cost of alcohol and drug rehab in Oldbury

Everyone should have access to help, which is why we strive to find a rehab clinic that meets your needs, requirements and budget. How much rehab costs comes down to different factors will make up the total cost including location, amenities and the treatment type. For inpatient treatment at a private rehab, you can expect to pay anything from £5,000 to £10,000.


How do I support a loved one with addiction?

Watching someone you know and love struggle with an alcohol or drug addiction can be hugely difficult. You want to be there but don’t want to say. You want to help but don’t know where to start. But you don’t need to navigate it on your own.

At Addiction Advocates, we offer a friend and family helpline and intervention service that takes the burden off your shoulders. After listening to you and your concerns, we’ll arrange a meeting in a neutral environment where everyone is given the opportunity to discuss their fears, hopes and dreams. We can even organise for the next steps to be taken and an application for rehab to be started.
