Alcohol & Drug Rehab in Colchester

Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in Colchester

Beating drug addiction or alcoholism involves therapy to address the behavioural issues that lead to addiction first, whilst treating both physical and psychological dependence. Attempting to stop using drugs without any type of professional assistance can be very difficult and sometimes dangerous where physical dependence has evolved. 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 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. Rehab facilities in Colchester should provide a bespoke treatment programme and a comprehensive screening process. The treatment plan should be tailored to fulfill the requirements of the individual, and their progress should be regularly monitored throughout the programme.

How Does Rehab Work

Individuals will receive one-on-one and group treatment as part of a treatment and recovery programme – customised to fully address their specific needs. A psychiatric evaluation should be provided by certified psychiatrists. A rehab programme will ideally be carried out by a team of specialists in the treatment of addiction and mental health, as well as spiritual counsellors, wellness specialists and medical staff.

When it comes to rehab choices, inpatient residential rehab and outpatient programmes are the two distinct options available in the UK. Inpatient residential rehab is not usually offered on the NHS, whereas outpatient programmes are available throughout Colchester on a self-referral basis. Inpatient residential rehab has many significant benefits over outpatient programmes. Inpatient rehab enables the individual to detox from substances and alcohol in an enclosed, safe, environment, without giving in to any temptations.

What Happens During Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Colchester

Rehab equips individuals with tools that enable them to live meaning lives without the need for alcohol or any other substances. 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 vary widely and a person struggling with drug or alcohol dependency will not always know what the ideal residential treatment program looks like. It is important that before choosing a residential programme, you understand what it entails in terms of treatment and aftercare options.

Any rehab programme should include family therapy, individual therapy, and group therapy. Medical staff should be available 24-hours a day to guide individuals through the detox stage, and help with any concerns they might 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 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.

Addiction Therapy & Treatment Options in Colchester

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 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. A good rehab centre therefore, should be licensed to treat both addiction and mental health disorders – with the expertise to treat substance disorders without hindering on the state of any existing mental health problems (such as bipolar or depression).

A few considerations must be made for the individuals well-being where dual diagnosis is concerned – such as the use of existing psychiatric medication and any 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.

Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox

Detox is a treatment used to stop the psychological and physical addiction resulting from 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 usually confined to those who are dependent on alcohol, benzodiazepines, opiates, and barbiturates. Detox medication is often not necessary for treating other substance dependencies.

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.

Therapy for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

Once the individual completes their detox, they will move on to the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians should employ a wide range of therapeutic models to allow for person centered treatment. 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 also take the form of talking therapies, but may also include different forms of psychotherapy such as Art Therapy, Meditation, and Drama Therapy. The aim is to help individuals find an optimal environment to gain new ways of thinking, bond with others and seek healthy, rewarding stimuli without the need for drugs or alcohol.

How Long is Rehab?

The length of stay will depend on individual circumstances, with most inpatient programmes ranging from 14 days up to 90 days. Extended rehab programmes have been shown to of recovery, so it may be best to choose a longer rehab programme. Some inpatient rehabs have “detox only” options – but this is not endorsed by uk-rehab, detox alone rarely treats addiction’s underlying causes. 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.

Cost of Alcohol and Drug Rehab

A substantial portion of the overall cost of rehab is from Detox, as well as the length of stay and services provided. Other considerations include location and amenities. Inpatient rehab centres typically charge £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.

Consider how much you spend to maintain your drug habit and the cost of the health issues 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.
