Alcohol And Drug Rehab In St Helen’s

Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in St Helen’s

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. All forms of alcoholism and drug addiction affect physical and mental health. Frequently it is the behavioural aspects of an addiction that are most apparent and troubling for 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. All good rehab facilities in St Helen’s should offer person-centred treatment which includes a comprehensive screening process. The treatment plan should be tailored to the needs of each individual, with regular monitoring and progress reports throughout the programme.

How Does Rehab Work

Individuals should be treated on a one-to-one and group basis. To fully address their specific needs, they should receive a person-centred treatment programme for optimal recovery. Additionally, a psychiatric evaluation should also be carried out 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 choices for rehab, the two distinct options available in the UK are inpatient residential rehab and outpatient programmes. Inpatient residential rehab is often not available on the NHS, whereas individuals can self-refer into outpatient programmes throughout St Helen’s. 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.

What Happens During Alcohol and Drug Rehab in St Helen’s

Rehab gives individuals the tools they need to live meaningful lives without the need for alcohol or any other substances. Qualified professionals aim to create an environment that is supportive, compassionate, and caring, so that individuals can begin the healing process and begin 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 imperative that prior to choosing a residential programme, you understand what is provided in terms of aftercare options and treatment.

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 quality residential programmes should supply free aftercare as part of any programme, and should allow for regular sessions to help long-term recovery. All rehab facilities in the UK must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC provide a rating of each individual rehab ranging from “Inadequate” to “Outstanding”. To understand how well a rehab is performing, the CQC website is a good place to start, as this will identify any potential issues with an individual facility.

Addiction Therapy & Treatment Options in St Helen’s

When you begin making enquiries, ask about the different therapy programmes the centre provides. A good rehab should have several therapeutic models to help those dealing 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. Therefore, good rehab centres should ideally be licensed to treat mental health disorders as well as addiction – with the expertise to provide treatment for substance dependency without negatively impacting any existing mental health issues (such as depression or bipolar).

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 stage of rehab is detox. Detox works to eliminate mind-altering substances from the body before psychological treatment can commence.

Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox

Detox is a treatment that intends to break both the physical and psychological addiction caused by drug and alcohol 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 not always necessary, and is often only recommended for those who are dependent on barbiturates, opiates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol.

Medical professionals will decide whether a medically-assisted detox is required, with special considerations around the individuals needs and any existing mental health conditions. It is recommended that the detox phase takes place within a residential setting, so that withdrawal symptoms and health complications can be monitored by medical professionals.

Therapy for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

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 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 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.

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. Extended rehab programmes have been shown to of recovery, so it may be best to choose a longer rehab programme. 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 increased recovery. This will allow more time to adjust to a substance free life, and for the therapy to have a long-lasting impact on emotional and spiritual well-being.

Cost of Alcohol and Drug Rehab

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. A 30-day inpatient treatment typically costs £5000 – £10000 from most rehab centres. 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 rehabs accept private insurance, but insurance providers don’t always cover addiction treatment. You should first check your insurance provider to determine whether they will cover your addiction treatment.
