Beating an addiction to drugs or alcohol requires eliminating the physical and psychological dependence, as well as addressing the behavioural issues that lead to addiction in the first place. 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 addiction to other drugs are detrimental to both physical and mental health. Usually the friends and family of addicts find the behavioural aspects of addiction the most apparent and troubling. For rehab to be successful, the individual must make deep, behavioural changes whilst in treatment. The recovery success rates depend entirely on the individual’s willingness for change. In LOCATIONXXX, a good rehab facility should have tailored treatment which includes a comprehensive screening process. The facility should customise the treatment plan to the needs of each individual, with their progress being regularly monitored throughout the programme.
Individuals will receive one-on-one and group treatment as part of a treatment and recovery programme – customised to fully address their specific needs. Also, individuals should have a psychiatric evaluation carried out by certified psychiatrists.
A rehab programme should be carried out by a team of addiction and mental health specialists, as well as spiritual counsellors, wellness specialists and medical staff. When it comes to rehab options, outpatient programmes and inpatient residential rehab are the two main choices available in the United Kingdom. Inpatient residential rehab treatment is usually unavailable on the NHS, whereas outpatient programmes are available throughout LOCATIONXXX 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 offers individuals the necessary tools to have a meaningful life without the needing 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 vital that before deciding upon a residential programme, you know exactly what treatment options and aftercare are available as part of the programme. 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 provide free aftercare as part of any programme, and should allow for regular sessions to promote 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 making enquiries, ask about the therapy programmes available to you. All good rehabs should have a few different therapeutic models to help those with psychological issues. If existing mental health conditions are present, it would be worth asking the centre if they specialise in treating patients with dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis is where the patient has both mental health conditions and addictions, which often require a specialised treatment plan. 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 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 stage of rehab is detox. Detox works to eliminate mind-altering substances from the body before psychological treatment can commence.
Detox is a treatment designed to bring an end to the psychological and physical addiction caused by alcohol and drug misuse. A medical detox uses detox medication to help individuals get through the worst of withdrawal safely, by reducing cravings and eliminating any dangerous symptoms that may result from sudden withdrawal. Detox medication is more common in those who are dependent on opiates, alcohol, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines. 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. The detox phase is recommended within a residential setting, so that medical professionals can properly assess withdrawal symptoms and any health complications the individual may be facing.
Once detox is complete the individual will move on to the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians ensure that treatment is person centered by utilising a range of therapeutic models. One-to-one sessions usually use psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), amongst others. Group sessions should usually take the form of talking therapies, but may also include other forms of psychotherapy such as Art Therapy, Drama Therapy, and Meditation. The aim is to create 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.
Most inpatient programmes vary from 14 days up to 90 days, but the length of stay will often depend on the circumstances of the individual. 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. Consider a 60-90 day programme for optimal recovery. This will allow more time to adjust to a substance free life, and to improve the impact of the therapy on emotional and spiritual well-being.
Detox makes up a substantial portion of the overall cost of rehab, as well as the length of stay and services provided. Other things to consider include location and amenities. Typically, an inpatient rehab centre charges £5000 – £10000 for a 30-day treatment. Monetary cost should never be a barrier to seeking addiction treatment, as often funding an addiction has far greater costs longer-term. Take into consideration how much you currently spend to keep up your addiction and the health ramifications associated with substance abuse. In some cases inpatient rehabs accept private insurance, but you must make sure addiction treatment is covered by your insurance provider first.
