Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in St-Helens

Beating drug addiction or alcoholism involves therapy to address the behavioural issues that lead to addiction first, whilst treating both physical and psychological dependence. Trying to stop using drugs without professional help can be challenging, and at times dangerous, where physical dependence needs to be overcome. All forms of drug addiction and alcoholism negatively impact the individual’s mental and physical health. Friends and family often find the behavioural aspects of addiction the most apparent and troubling to experience.

To ensure rehab is a success, the individual needs to make life altering, behavioural changes whilst in treatment. The recovery success rates depend entirely on the individual’s commitment to those changes. Any good rehab facility in St-Helens 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

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 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.

In the UK, inpatient residential rehab and outpatient programmes are the two distinct options for rehab. The NHS rarely provides funding for Inpatient residential rehab, but outpatient programmes are available across the whole of St-Helens 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 St-Helens

Rehab gives individuals the tools they need to live meaningful 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, 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 vital that before deciding upon a residential programme, you know exactly what treatment options and aftercare are available as part of the programme. All strong rehab programmes should consist of group therapy, family therapy, and individual therapy. The treatment centre should have medical staff on standby to help individuals through the detox phase, and address any concerns they may have regarding psychotherapy and detox medication.

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 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 St-Helens

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 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, a good rehab centre should be licensed to treat both mental health disorders and addiction – with the experience to treat substance dependency without impeding on any existing mental health problems (such as depression or bipolar). Where dual diagnosis is involved, a range of factors need to be taken into consideration for the well-being of the individual – such as re-assessing the use of current psychiatric medication as well as therapy undergone before rehabilitation. Detox is the first stage of rehab. Detox eliminates the mind-altering substances from the body before moving on to psychological treatment.

Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox

Detox is a treatment intended to break not only the physical addiction but also the psychological addiction that commonly occurs after 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 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 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

After completing detox the individual will begin the rehabilitation phase. Clinicians should employ a wide range of therapeutic models to allow for person centered 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 include different forms of psychotherapy such as Drama Therapy, Art 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.

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 costs include amenities and location. Typically, inpatient rehab centres price a 30-day treatment at £5000 – £10000. Cost should never be a barrier to seeking addiction treatment, as often maintaining an addiction has far greater cost implications longer-term.

Consider the amount of money you spend to maintain your drug habit and the health ramifications caused by substance abuse. In some cases inpatient rehabs accept private insurance, but you must make sure addiction treatment is covered by your insurance provider first.

How Long is Rehab?

The length of stay will vary depending on individual circumstances, with the majority of inpatient programmes ranging from 14 days up to 90 days. Extended rehab programmes have been shown to , so it may be that longer rehab programmes are a better choice.

Some inpatient rehabs have options that are “detox only” – but uk-rehab does not endorse this – as detox alone rarely addresses the underlying causes of addictions. 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.
