Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction involves curbing physical and psychological dependence while resolving addictive behavioural issues. Trying to quit drugs without professional guidance/help can be remarkably difficult -and at times dangerous – especially where physical dependence has developed over time. Alcoholism and other kinds of drug addiction affect physical and mental health. Often the behavioural aspects of substance dependence are most apparent and worrying to friends and family. For rehab to succeed, the individual must commit to deep, behavioural changes whilst in treatment. The success rates of recovery depend entirely on the individual’s willingness and commitment to such changes. A good rehab facility in Salisbury should offer treatment which includes a comprehensive screening process and bespoke programme to address the needs of the individual. The treatment plan should be person-centred and their progress regularly monitored 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.
A team of addiction and mental health specialists should carry out every rehab programme, aided by spiritual counsellors, wellness specialists and medical staff. In the UK, inpatient residential rehab and outpatient programmes are the two distinct options for rehab. The NHS rarely provides funding for Inpatient residential rehab, but outpatient programmes are available across the whole of Salisbury on a self-referral basis. Inpatient residential rehab provides many benefits over outpatient programmes, and allows the individual to detox from alcohol and substances in a safe, enclosed environment and away from any temptations.
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 equips individuals with tools that enable them to live meaning lives without the need for alcohol or any other substances. Qualified professionals support a caring and compassionate environment, so that individuals can start the healing process and begin their journey to long-term recovery. This aside, not all residential programs are identical and a person who’s struggling with alcohol or drug addiction may not be able to identify the right residential treatment programs. It is important that before choosing a residential programme, you understand what it entails in terms of treatment and aftercare options. A strong rehab programme should consist of individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy. Medical staff should be on standby 24-hours a day to help individuals through the detox phase, and address any concerns they may have regarding detox medication and psychotherapy.
Good residential programmes should have free aftercare as part of their programmes, and allow for regular sessions to strengthen long-term recovery. All rehab facilities in the UK are regulated by, and must be registered with, the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC provide a rating of each individual rehab ranging from “Inadequate” to “Outstanding”. To find out how a rehab is performing, the best place to look is the CQC website, as this will identify any potential issues with an individual facility.
If you or a loved one are seriously struggling with addiction, private rehab provides:
When enquiring with the treatment centres, ask about the variety of therapy programmes available to you. A good rehab should have a number of therapeutic models to help individuals with psychological issues. If existing mental health conditions are present, it would be worth inquiring whether the centre specialises in dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis is the presence of mental health conditions and addictions. This often necessitates a specialised treatment plan to treat both disorders simultaneously. Consequently, good rehab centres should be licensed to provide treatment for both addiction and mental health issues – with the expertise to treat substance disorders without impeding on any existing mental health problems (for example depression or bipolar). Where dual diagnosis is involved, a range of factors need to be taken into consideration for the well-being of the individual – such as re-assessing the use of current psychiatric medication as well as therapy undergone before rehabilitation. Detox is the first stage of rehab. Detox eliminates the mind-altering substances from the body before moving on to psychological treatment.
Detox is a treatment that intends to break both the physical and psychological addiction caused by drug and alcohol misuse. A medical detox aides in safely getting individuals through the worst of withdrawal, by using detox medication, it eliminates any dangerous symptoms and reduces cravings that may result from sudden withdrawal. Detox medication is not always needed, and is usually confined to individuals who are dependent on opiates, benzodiazepines, alcohol,and barbiturates. Medical professionals will decide if a medically-assisted detox is necessary, with additional considerations around the person’s needs and any existing mental health conditions. It is advised that the detox process happens within a residential setting, so that medical professionals can accurately assess any health complications and withdrawal symptoms that may arise.
Once detox is complete the individual will move on to the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians focus on person centered treatment utilising a wide variety of therapeutic models. Usually one-to-one sessions utilise psychotherapy in the form of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), amongst others. Group sessions should also take the form of talking therapies, but may include different forms of psychotherapy such as Drama Therapy, Art Therapy, and Meditation. The aim is to provide the optimal environment that allows the individual to explore new ways of thinking, bond with peers and seek healthy, rewarding stimuli without the need for drugs or alcohol.
The length of stay will depend on individual circumstances, with most inpatient programmes ranging from 14 days up to 90 days. Longer rehab programmes have been associated with , so it may be prudent to decide on an extended rehab programme. Some inpatient rehabs have options that are “detox only” – but uk-rehab does not endorse this – as detox alone rarely addresses the underlying causes of addictions. Consider a 60-90 day treatment programme for optimal recovery. This will allow for better adjusting to a life without substances, and for the therapy to have a long-lasting impact on spiritual and emotional well-being.
Detox makes up a sizable portion of the overall cost of rehab, as well as the length of stay and services provided. Other considerations include location and amenities. A 30-day inpatient treatment typically costs £5000 – £10000 from most rehab centres. Cost should not be a barrier to getting addiction treatment, as often maintaining an addiction incurs a far greater cost longer-term. Take into consideration how much you currently spend to keep up your addiction and the health ramifications associated with substance abuse. Private insurance can sometimes be accepted by rehabs, but you must make sure your insurance provider covers addiction treatment.
