What Is Rehab?

Residential rehabilitation – commonly known as “rehab” – describes addiction treatment carried out at a dedicated facility, as well as being the name for such a facility itself. This treatment comprises both detoxification (“detox”) – medically supervised and often assisted by appropriate medication – and an extended period of therapy during which the causes of addiction are explored.

At rehab, patients can focus entirely upon their recovery, far from the temptations of daily life, and secure in the knowledge that – because rehabs are confidential facilities – details of their condition will not reach the outside world.

It is commonly acknowledged that rehab offers the most effective treatment of addiction (i.e., produces the greatest chance of life-long recovery) thanks to its holistic approach addressing both physical dependency and the longer-term, more pernicious challenge of psychological addiction. Treatment which only addresses physical dependency is unlikely to result in a permanent recovery as the underlying causes of addiction will not have been addressed.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

When dealing with addiction time is of the essence. Addiction is a dreadful illness which ruins lives and can end them prematurely: thousands of people die each year in the UK, as a result, either of substance abuse directly or of accidents or violent acts in which such abuse is a key factor. Every day that goes by in which someone suffers from addiction and its ramifications is another day in which they are at risk of such untimely death – or, dreadfully, of causing the untimely death of someone.

Because of this, it is imperative to seek treatment as soon as possible – that is, as soon as an addict is prepared to admit to their addiction and to ask for help. Although the NHS offers various high-quality addiction treatment services, waiting lists can be very long – especially in areas of high demand such as Gloucester – and those waiting times, sadly, are too long for many addicts.

If you or someone close to you is addicted to any substance of abuse, do not hesitate: reach out to an addiction specialist now on 0800 024 1455 to discuss some of the private options available to you.

Advantages of Private Rehab

Any addict can testify that the temptations of their daily environment can be so great as to make individual attempts to “get clean” all but impossible. Rehab offers a pleasant, peaceful, secure and confidential setting, far from those temptations, in which addicts can focus solely on recovery.

Upon entering rehab, an addict will be assessed by a medical team before embarking on a period of detox and withdrawal supervised by highly experienced professionals who are on hand to make sure that this period is as safe and as comfortable as it can be (this may include the provision of certain medications to ameliorate the worst effects of withdrawal).

Following the detox phase, the patient will move into therapy – different models provided in various forms including group and one-to-one – aimed at addressing the root causes of addiction and at providing the addict with defence mechanisms against relapse. Throughout their stay, the patient will be given healthy nutritious food based on a bespoke dietary plan and will be given a tailored fitness schedule (on the basis that a healthy mind requires a healthy body).

Following the completion of treatment, the patient will leave rehab – but this does not mean that their recovery is complete: this is an ongoing process requiring constant attention and hard work, and as a result, the patient will receive free aftercare for up to a year after leaving the facility.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options near [SUBAREA]

If you feel that private rehab is currently not an option for you for reasons of cost, or if you do not feel that you are able to spend the required time away from family and/or work obligations, do not despair: various NHS and charity resources can be found in Gloucester and across Gloucestershire which can help you combat your addiction. Consult your GP about which of these resources may be available to you and would be most appropriate for your specific situation.

Advantages of NHS Treatment

The main advantage of NHS treatment, unsurprisingly, is that it is free at the point of use, while private rehab typically comes at a cost which may be very off-putting to some addicts (though which is likely to fade into insignificance compared with the costs – financial and otherwise – of remaining addicted). Another advantage is that the NHS operates across the country and thus may be more accessible geographically than many private rehab facilities (though again waiting times vary and may be too lengthy for those desperate to break their addiction). Thirdly, although quality does vary by location, the NHS does offer a high standard of service.

Addiction Support Groups

The UK benefits from the activities of numerous support group organisations set up to provide help to recovering addicts. Support groups comprising individuals from all walks of life, brought together by their common experience of addiction and recovery, meet regularly across the country to give and take mutual support in the form of advice, solidarity, sympathy and companionship. Attendance at support groups is almost always free; attendees must commit to a life free of substances.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is the oldest (founded in 1935) and best-known of these support group organisations; its 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development is the model for many other organisations, including Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which – as its name suggests – caters specifically to those recovering from drug addiction.

Some organisations support people in recovery from addiction to specific substances: these include Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. Meanwhile, Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assist the families and friends of addicts and typically hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.

Support groups usually meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Gloucester see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous

Types of Counselling

Individual counselling is one form of assistance especially beneficial for recovering addicts with extremely busy schedules. This can be engaged in following a stay at rehab as a supplementary aid to recovery; on the other hand, it is also used to help manage an addiction ahead of engagement in a full treatment programme.

Private addiction counsellors operate similarly to “normal” psychotherapists (though of course with an emphasis on dealing with the causes and consequences of addiction specifically). Private counsellors providing a range of therapy models can be found across the UK; they can be seen by on an ongoing – usually weekly – basis and typically charge a fee per appointment. Some are available for emergencies while others limit access to working hours.
