Alcohol & Drug Rehab In Hertfordshire

Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in Hertfordshire

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. Attempting to stop using drugs without any form of professional help can be extremely difficult, and at times dangerous where physical dependence has developed. 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 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. In Hertfordshire, 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.

How Does Rehab Work

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.

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 Hertfordshire on a self-referral basis. Inpatient residential rehab provides many advantages over outpatient programmes. They allow the individual to safely detox from alcohol and substances in an enclosed environment, without any temptations.

What Happens During Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Hertfordshire

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. However, not all residential programs are the same and a person struggling with drug or alcohol addiction may not know what the ideal residential treatment program looks like. It is imperative that before choosing a residential programme, you understand what is offered in terms of aftercare and treatment options.

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 facilities in the UK are required to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC provide a rating of each individual rehab ranging from “Inadequate” to “Outstanding”. To get an understanding of a rehab’s performance, the CQC website is a great place to start, as they provide all inspection reports and summaries of any issues found.

Addiction Therapy & Treatment Options in Hertfordshire

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 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. 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).

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. Rehab begins with detox. The detox stage works to remove the mind-altering substances from the individual’s body before they move on to 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 helps to guide individuals through the worst of withdrawal safely, by using detox medication, you can reduce cravings and eliminate any dangerous symptoms that often result from sudden withdrawal. Detox medication is not always necessary, and is usually confined to those who are dependent on alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates.

As part of a person centred approach, medical professionals will decide whether the individual requires a medically-assisted detox, with special considerations around the individuals 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 focus on person centered treatment utilising a wide variety of therapeutic models. One-to-one sessions should involve the use of psychotherapy as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), 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 for individuals is to create the optimal environment to explore new ways of thinking, to form bonds with peers and to 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 programme for better recovery. This will allow plenty of time to adjust to a life free from substances, and for the therapy to have a longer lasting impact on spiritual and emotional well-being.

Cost of Alcohol and Drug Rehab

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. 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.

Consider how much you spend to maintain your drug habit and the cost of the health issues associated with substance abuse. Some, but not all rehab facilities accept private insurance, but you should check with your insurance provider first as to whether addiction treatment is covered.
