How does rehab work

Rehab, in particular inpatient rehab, works by removing you from your day-to-day routine and placing you in a warm, healthy, and positive environment where you can receive top-quality medical care and psychological intervention to overcome your addictive disorder.

The reason why inpatient rehab is so effective is due to the fact that you are removing yourself from an environment that may be filled with potential triggers. Therefore, you are in a better position to reflect on the aspects of your life which need to change and you are less likely to relapse.

 

What happens during alcohol and drug rehab in Birmingham

Once you have your check-in date then you will simply have to head down to the facility where you will be receiving treatment. When you arrive you will be shown around the facility, be shown to your room, and then you will likely be assessed by a therapist in order to see where you are currently at emotionally, physically, and medically.

Most people will then begin their recovery journey with a course of detoxification treatment.

 

Addiction therapy & treatment options in Birmingham

Addiction Advocates are partnered with many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres across the UK. This means that, once we understand more about you and your current position, we will be able to find the treatment programme which will best suit you in the Birmingham area.

 

Medical alcohol and drug detox

Detoxification is never something to be taken lightly. Experiencing drug and alcohol detox without appropriate medical supervision has cost many addicts their lives in the past, so we cannot in good conscience recommend that you try this.

All of the rehabs that Addiction Advocates partner with are equipped with detox clinics where you can undergo a course of medically-assisted detoxification. This treatment will allow us to manage any side effects that you present during the withdrawal process, while also keeping you as comfortable as possible.

 

Therapy for alcohol and drug addiction

Some of the most commonly administered treatments when it comes to treating the psychological aspect of an addictive disorder include the likes of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy), stress management therapy, dual-diagnosis treatment, and relapse prevention planning.

These primarily one-to-one-based therapies will allow you to delve into the heart of your addiction. Once you have done this, you will be able to understand your thought patterns more and disassemble your addictive tendencies over time.

Other forms of therapy include NAD+ brain restoration therapy, low-level laser therapy, music therapy, exercise therapy, and much more.

 

How long is rehab

Primarily, the inpatient treatment plans that we advise people to undergo last for around 28 days. However, in certain instances where the addictive disorder is more severe, an addiction course of treatment may be required.

 

Cost of alcohol and drug rehab

Private rehabilitation can be expensive; however, here at Addiction Advocates, we are able to work with all types of budgetary requirements and find a treatment plan accordingly. When you are paying for healthcare, you want to make sure that you are getting the best care that you can get — and that is what we are ready to find for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is addiction a mental illness or disease?
Addiction is a very complex disorder and so the specific characterisation of it is largely dependent upon the conditions from which it has developed within the individual suffering from it. However, this chronic illness can be conquered with the help of trained medical professionals no matter how severe it is.
How do you deal with withdrawal symptoms?
As alluded to previously, all of the rehabs that we work with are kitted out with detox clinics in which medical staff will be able to monitor and control the side effects of withdrawal through medication.
Can addiction be cured?
Sadly, addiction cannot be fully cured. However, what you learn in rehab is how to control your addiction and how to keep the prospect of relapse under firm control. After a while, controlling your urges will become second nature and you will be back to enjoying your everyday life free from addiction in no time.
