What Is Rehab?

Widely accepted as the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction – in terms of overcoming both physical dependency and the psychological impulses which both initially lead to and subsequently sustain addiction – residential rehabilitation (“rehab”) provides a holistic combination of therapy, medicine, dietary and fitness regimes, peer-group support and more upon which to build a solid, lifelong recovery.

Rehab is a term for both the process of attending (usually as an inpatient, although outpatient options are available) a dedicated facility for a programme of treatment, and the facility itself. Rehab offers, first, detoxification (“detox”) aimed at cleansing the addict’s system of substances of abuse (assisted by medical professionals on hand to ensure the process is safe and as comfortable as possible); and then the provision of therapy to uncover and address the root causes of addiction.

At rehab, patients can focus upon their recovery in an attractive, tranquil environment perfectly conducive to mental and physical healing, confident that their condition will not become common knowledge in the outside world.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

It is not excessive to say that when it comes to the treatment of addiction every day counts: thousands of people die each year in the UK from substance abuse, and countless more fall victim to accidents or acts of violence in which alcohol or drugs – or both – are a factor. Because of this terrible toll, and because even an apparently otherwise healthy addict can succumb at any time to overdose or the aforementioned accidents, getting help as soon as possible is crucial to minimise the risk that you will become another heartbreaking statistic.

While the NHS can offer high-quality addiction treatment services, the waiting lists for these services can be distressingly long, and if you or someone close to you need help time is of the essence: reach out today to discover what private options may be available to you. Call 0800 024 1455 to speak with an addiction specialist.

Advantages of Private Rehab

As mentioned above, rehab provides a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting in which an addict can focus fully on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of the outside world. Upon entering rehab, an addict will embark on detox, assisted by highly experienced medical personnel there to assure that withdrawal is as safe and as comfortable as possible (which may involve the provision of medication).

After detox, the addict will engage therapy – both one-to-one and group – aimed at addressing the root causes of their addiction, as well as at constructing defence mechanisms against relapse; they will also receive bespoke dietary and fitness plans and may benefit from an array of other resources available.

Following a stay in any quality rehab, a patient will receive free aftercare (for up to a year): it is important to remember that recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is ongoing and may not be a smooth and easy process. Aftercare can help reduce the risk of relapse and provide the recovering addict with vital support at critical junctures.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options near Hereford

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 Hereford and across Herefordshire 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 most obvious advantage of taking the NHS route through your addiction is one of cost: the fees mentioned above for private rehab may be offputting, while NHS services are, of course, free at the point of delivery. It is worth bearing in mind, nevertheless, that even if you are put off by the aforementioned costs, compared with the long-term costs – financial and otherwise – of not seeking treatment, rehab may be considered an extremely worthwhile investment in your future.

Another benefit offered by the NHS is geographical accessibility: the NHS provides services throughout the UK, while many rehabs lie a comparatively long way away from Hereford. The standard of NHS services is typically high but this can vary significantly from one NHS trust to another, and as mentioned earlier waiting times can be distressingly long.

Addiction Support Groups

A number of organisations exist across the country to provide assistance to recovering addicts, and some of these operate a support group model. Support groups are groups of individuals who are themselves recovering addicts – some only recently free from addiction, while others may have been clean for many years – and who come together at regular meetings to give and take mutual support: sharing their stories of addiction, giving advice on how to resist relapse, showing solidarity and sympathy when group members are struggling, and providing the simple companionship which can mean so much in times of difficulty and loneliness.

Support group attendees can come from all walks of life, brought together by their shared experience of addiction and recovery; typically, attendance at support groups is free and the only qualification for participation is a commitment to leading a life free of substance abuse.

The most famous support group organisation, and the one on which most others are modelled, 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 based directly upon the AA model, 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.

Support groups typically 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 Hereford, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous

Types of Counselling

Many recovering addicts benefit from individual counselling – especially useful for people with very busy schedules – provided by private addiction counsellors who operate very much like “normal” psychotherapists (though with an understandable focus on addiction and its ramifications). This model is often of particular interest to people who have completed a rehab programme and who desire a supplementary aid to their recovery, as well as to those who have not yet engaged in such a programme but who seek a means of managing an addiction prior to doing so at an appropriate time.

Private counsellors can be found across the country and abroad variety of therapeutic models are delivered. Counsellors are typically seen on an ongoing basis by private appointment – usually weekly – and charge a fee per such appointment. The majority of counsellors limit access to set working hours, though some do make themselves available for emergency access.
