Alcohol & Drug Rehab in the City of London

Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in the-City-of-London

Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction involves curbing physical and psychological dependence while resolving addictive behavioural issues. 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 or other forms of drug addiction impact physical and mental health—and it’s often the behavioural aspects of addiction that are most apparent and troubling to friends and family.

For the rehab process to be successful, significant behavioural changes are needed whilst in treatment. The recovery success rates depend entirely on the individual’s willingness for change and commitment to those changes long-term. Any good rehab facility in the-City-of-London should offer personalised treatment which includes a comprehensive screening process. The treatment plan should be changed to meet the needs of each individual, with their progress regularly monitored throughout the programme.

How Does Rehab Work

Treatment is provided on a one-to-one and group basis. Individuals should all receive a treatment and recovery programme customised to fully address their specific needs. A psychiatric evaluation should also be carried out by certified psychiatrists. All rehab programmes should be carried out by a team of mental health and addiction specialists, as well as wellness specialists, spiritual counsellors, 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 the-City-of-London on a self-referral basis. Inpatient residential rehab has significant advantages over outpatient programmes. For example, in inpatient rehab the individual is provided an enclosed environment, away from any temptations. This allows the individual the opportunity to detox from alcohol as safely as possible.

What Happens During Alcohol and Drug Rehab in the-City-of-London

Rehab offers individuals the necessary tools to have a meaningful life without the needing substances including alcohol. 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 prior to choosing a residential programme, you understand what is provided in terms of aftercare options and treatment.

A good rehab programme should be made up of group therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy. Medical staff should be available any time of day or night to help individuals through the detox phase, and address any concerns they may have regarding psychotherapy and detox medication. Good residential programmes should have free aftercare as part of their programmes, and allow for regular sessions to strengthen long-term recovery. It is a requirement for all rehab facilities in the UK to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC provide a rating of each individual rehab ranging from “Inadequate” to “Outstanding”. To investigate how a rehab is performing, a great starting point is the CQC website, as they provide copies of inspection reports highlighting issues and areas of excellence.

Addiction Therapy & Treatment Options in the-City-of-London

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 is still dealing with mental health problems, it is worth asking the centre if they have a specialism in dual-diagnosis treatment. Dual-diagnosis is the presence of addiction and mental health conditions, in order to effectively treat both a specialised treatment is needed. 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 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. With the use of detox medication, a medical detox reduces cravings and eliminates any dangerous symptoms that may result from sudden withdrawal. This can be an important part of safely helping individuals through the most difficult phase of withdrawal. Detox medication is not always necessary, and is usually confined to those who are dependent on alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates.

Medical professionals will assess whether a medically-assisted detox is needed, with special considerations around the individuals existing mental health conditions and other needs. 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.

Therapy for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

After completing detox the individual will begin the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians should utilise a wide variety of therapeutic models to allow for personalised treatment. One-to-one sessions should explore 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 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.

How Long is Rehab?

Most inpatient programmes range from 14 days up to 90 days, but the length of stay will depend on individual circumstances. Longer rehab programmes have been shown 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.

Cost of Alcohol and Drug Rehab

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. Typically, an inpatient rehab centre charges £5000 – £10000 for a 30-day treatment. 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. 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.
