Drug and alcohol addiction is primarily characterised by addictive behaviours that may alter how we view life and behave daily. Frequent drug consumption leads to a tolerance build-up, which means the body constantly craves more.

Drug and alcohol addiction is on the rise, and because of changed consumption, new dependency structures, and a lack of prevention in recent times, people are not getting the help they need. Whilst there are some free public services, these greatly lack intensity and long-term support.

Addictive behaviours are often a reaction to very different factors. Whether this is genetic predisposition or lifestyle factors, there is always an underlying psychological cause. These underlying causes cannot be managed or maintained until the substance is removed from the body. For this, we speak of rehabilitation.

Private drug and alcohol rehabilitation offers a full-scale programme dedicated to removing addiction and mitigating the risks of psychological or physical dependence. The consequences of addiction don’t just affect you; they may affect your family and friends also. Taking action is the best thing you can do, and we are here to help you here in Weoley.

Benefits of Private Rehab

Private rehab offers you comprehensive support, in a luxury facility, for as long as needed. A team of multidisciplinary professionals will create your designated programme. You will gain access to long-term support and learn valuable life tools. In principle, drug and alcohol rehabilitation should enable you to live your everyday life again without limitations or fear or relapse. We work with you to ensure you are improving your life and setting goals.

Private therapy actively deals with addiction as a disease, and the building blocks for this are psychotherapies, detox and psychosocial support, including a focus on your physical health also. Private rehab is implemented in three key phases: detox, psychotherapies and aftercare. All of these combined provide you with a winning formula for success. Some additional benefits of private rehab include:

  • Meeting new people
  • Gaining a large support network
  • An aftercare plan
  • Positivity for the future
  • Feeling in control
  • Gaining confidence

These are only the beginning benefits of lifelong positives that private rehab offers you. The advantages of private rehab far outweigh the advantages of public rehabilitation.  The success rates are particularly low, which is why private alcohol and drug rehab is so sought after and highly beneficial.


What Happens During and After Detox?

Detox is the first and most important phase of rehabilitation that focuses on removing the addictive substance from the body. This is undertaken in a strict medical environment that is safe for you and minimises any unwanted withdrawal symptoms.

A drug and alcohol detox should never be completed alone, as it can be incredibly dangerous. At private rehab, you will have a medical team with you round the clock to manage your symptoms, should they occur.

Certain withdrawal symptoms occur when the body is trying to wean itself off the drug. Detox is completed slowly and carefully, usually over a period of a week. These symptoms may include tremors, headaches and flu-like symptoms. Certain medications can be given to you to ease these symptoms and make you comfortable for the duration. Other symptoms associated with detox may include:

  • Changing moods
  • Depression/ Anxiety
  • Aches and pains
  • Cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Hallucinations
  • Nausea

Addiction can create multiple problems with your mental and physical health. Almost all organs can be affected. That is why we strive to ensure that your alcohol and drug detox is smooth running. You will have access to incredible cuisine and a luxury environment to heal in. Once detox is complete, you will rest, recuperate and begin the next phase of your programme. You will never be alone.

Certain treatments will include a range of psychotherapies and counselling sessions that will seek to rectify the underlying causes of addiction. We appreciate that numerous reasons may have led you to this path. From childhood trauma to misuse of drugs, to social situations and more. That is why each programme is tailor-made. We will ensure that you get the help you deserve. Some of the chosen methods with proven results are counselling (family and group sessions), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Art Therapy, Mindfulness and much more.


Life After Rehab

Life after rehab doesn’t have to be difficult. Private rehab will give you a plethora of tools, tips and support that will guide you into the next steps. Whether this is alone or with a network of family and friends around you, our success rates are incredibly high, and we pride ourselves on this.

Therefore, allow us to teach you the way and guide you on your journey to sobriety. Reintegrating is the biggest step to face after rehab. This may include going home to family or returning to work or studies. We hope you will bring your friends and family along on your rehab journey.

Your aftercare plan will factor in every single one of your personal needs, which may include follow-up counselling sessions or a follow on of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), for example. You will be able to keep in touch with us face to face or via Zoom, and you’ll feel prepared to meet your goals and live a life without addiction. It is more than possible. We appreciate that aftercare plans are the most beneficial part of rehab.

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.
