What is Rehab?

Residential rehabilitation – or “rehab” – is the term for the process by which an addict gets treatment for their addiction at a dedicated facility, and also describes the facility itself. At rehab, a patient is able to undergo detoxification (“detox”) and withdrawal with medical assistance – often in the form of pharmaceutical as well as therapeutic support – and engage in therapy aimed at discovering and addressing the root causes of their addiction, in a secure, peaceful, pleasant and (crucially) confidential environment perfect for the necessary introspection and contemplation.

There is a general consensus that rehab is the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction, in terms of its being the most likely to result in permanent abstinence on the part of the erstwhile addict. Its ability to address both short- (physical dependency countered by detoxification) and long-term (psychological addiction, tackled by therapy) challenges in one holistic treatment programme conducted under one roof is unparalleled, and indeed in mainstream culture “rehab” has become synonymous with addiction treatment.

How can I get Someone into Rehab?

Addiction is a personal catastrophe which ruins lives; it can also be extremely dangerous, with thousands of people dying from substance abuse each year in the UK and countless more falling victim to drug-related accidents and acts of violence. As a result, addiction treatment literally saves lives – and the sooner an addict is able to recognise and admit to their condition, and reach out for help, the sooner that help can be provided within the peaceful, caring setting of a quality rehab.

For some people, private rehab may not be an option. If you are not considering rehab for reasons of cost, or if you are unable to spend the required time away from family and/or work, there are various NHS and charity resources that can be found in Portsmouth and across Hampshire 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 primary advantage of NHS treatment is, of course, financial: private rehab comes at a cost which may be off-putting to some addicts (although, set against the costs – financial and otherwise – of addiction, this investment may be comparatively minor) and NHS options are free at the point of use. They are also very accessible geographically in that the NHS operates in every corner of the country (though waiting times vary and may be substantial). Furthermore, the NHS offers a high standard of service – though quality does vary by location.

Addiction Support Groups

There are many different support groups available to help people during recovery, but the most well-known is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) which was founded in 1935 and runs on a 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development, with one of the steps being a recognition that a higher power – such as God – can assist with an alcoholic’s recovery.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA), founded in 1953 and follow the same structure as the AA model. It is the second-largest support group organisation worldwide and caters to recovering drug addicts specifically. In a similar vein, but supporting those recovering from addictions to specific substances, are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. There are also support groups such as Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assisting the families and friends of addicts which typically hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.

These support groups usually meet on a weekly basis, and each one is managed independently, with meeting times and venues subject to change. For more information on meetings in or near Portsmouth, see the relevant websites:

Types Of Counselling

One form of assistance for recovering addicts which is especially beneficial for those with extremely busy schedules is individual counselling – which can be engaged in either following attendance at rehab or other treatment as a supplementary aid to recovery, or potentially as a means of managing an addiction prior to engagement in a full treatment programme. Private addiction counsellors operate very much like regular psychotherapists, though with an obvious emphasis on tackling the causes and consequences of addiction. Private counsellors offering a wide variety of different approaches to therapy can be found across the country; they can be seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis – usually weekly – and typically charge a fee per appointment. Some counsellors make themselves available for emergency access while others limit access to working hours.
