Beating drug addiction or alcoholism involves therapy to address the behavioural issues that lead to addiction first, whilst treating both physical and psychological dependence. Trying to quit drugs without professional guidance/help can be remarkably difficult -and at times dangerous – especially where physical dependence has developed over time. All forms of drug addiction and alcoholism negatively impact the individual’s mental and physical health. Friends and family often find the behavioural aspects of addiction the most apparent and troubling to experience. For rehab to be successful, one must be willing to make significant behavioural changes whilst in treatment. The recovery success rates are entirely dependent on the individual’s willingness for change. All good rehab facilities in Chorley should offer person-centred treatment which includes a comprehensive screening process. The treatment plan should be tailored to the needs of each individual, with regular monitoring and progress reports throughout the programme.
Individuals receive treatment on a group and one-to-one basis, and have a customised treatment and recovery programme developed to fully address their specific needs. A psychiatric evaluation should also be carried out by certified psychiatrists.
We also offer free group sessions for families or anyone closely connected to the individual.
These groups provide guidance and support network built and an understanding of addiction acquired. All of which can contribute to ongoing long-term recovery for both addicts and family members.
Rehab provides individuals with the necessary tools to live meaningful lives without the need for substances including alcohol. Qualified professionals foster an environment that is caring, compassionate, and supportive, so that individuals can begin the healing process towards long-term recovery. However, residential programs are not equal and a person struggling with alcohol or drug dependency may not know what the ideal residential treatment program looks like. It is imperative that prior to choosing a residential programme, you understand what is provided in terms of aftercare options and treatment. Rehab programmes should ideally consist of individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy. Medical staff need to be made available 24 hours a day to aid with the detox process, and address any concerns that individuals express regarding their detox medication and psychotherapy. Residential programmes should give free aftercare as part of all good programmes, and should agree to regular sessions to aid long-term recovery.
All rehab treatment centre in the UK must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC assign a rating to each rehab ranging from “Inadequate” to “Outstanding”. To understand the performance of a rehab, a good place to start is the CQC website, as they list any potential issues with an individual facility.
If you or a loved one are seriously struggling with addiction, private rehab provides:
When making enquiries, ask the treatment centre about the types of therapy programmes available. All decent rehabs should provide several different therapeutic models to help underlining psychological issues associated with addiction. If the individual presents mental health problems, it’s best to ask the centre if they specialise in treating dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis is the presence of mental health conditions and addiction, a specialised treatment is recommended to effectively treat both conditions. Therefore, a good rehab centre should be licensed to treat both mental health disorders and addiction – with the experience to treat substance disorders without impeding on any existing mental health issues (such as bipolar or depression). Where dual diagnosis is concerned, several factors must be taken into consideration for the individuals well-being – such as the ongoing use of existing psychiatric medication as well as therapy undergone prior to rehabilitation. The first phase of rehab is detox. Detox eliminates the substances that affect the individual’s mind, preparing them for psychological treatment.
Detox is a treatment designed to bring an end to the psychological and physical addiction caused by alcohol and drug misuse. A medical detox can be defined as medically-assisted, as often detox medication is provided to alleviate many of the dangerous symptoms associated with withdrawal. Detox medication is not always necessary, and is often only recommended for those who are dependent on barbiturates, opiates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol. Medical professionals will assess whether the individual requires a medically-assisted detox, with additional considerations involving the individuals needs and any existing mental health conditions. It is recommended that the detox phase is pursued within a residential setting, so that medical professionals can monitor withdrawal symptoms and any health complications.
After completing detox the individual will begin the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians ensure that treatment is person centered by utilising a range of therapeutic models. One-to-one sessions should utilise psychotherapy in the form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), amongst others. Group sessions should usually take the form of talking therapies, but may include other forms of psychotherapy such as Art Therapy, Drama Therapy, and Meditation. The goal is to provide the best possible environment to allow the individual to gain new ways of thinking, bond with others and seek healthy, rewarding stimuli without the inclusion of drugs or alcohol.
The length of stay will depend on individual circumstances, with most inpatient programmes ranging from 14 days up to 90 days. Rehab programmes have been linked to , so it may be prudent to choose extended rehab programmes. Some inpatient rehabs offer “detox only” options – but uk-rehab does not endorse this – as detox alone rarely addresses the underlying causes of addictions. For optimal recovery consider a 60-90 day programme. This will give you plenty of time to acclimatize to a substance free life, and allows the therapy to have a long-lasting impact on emotional and spiritual well-being.
A large portion of the overall cost of rehab is from Detox, as well as the length of stay and services provided. Other things to consider include amenities and location. Typically, an inpatient rehab centre charges £5000 – £10000 for a 30-day treatment. Cost should not be a barrier to seeking addiction treatment, as often the longer-term cost of maintaining an addiction is far greater. Take into consideration how much you currently spend to keep up your addiction and the health ramifications associated with substance abuse. In some cases rehabs accept private insurance, but insurance providers don’t always cover addiction treatment. You should first check your insurance provider to determine whether they will cover your addiction treatment.
