What Is Rehab?

Because of its great success as a treatment model – including in a large number of high-profile cases – rehab has come to be synonymous in public perception with the treatment of addiction and substance abuse. Specifically, the term refers both to the process of undergoing treatment for addiction as a dedicated facility, and to such a facility itself; treatment is usually provided as residential (hence “going to rehab”) but outpatient options are also available from some providers.

Rehab usually consists of two main phases: a period of detoxification (“detox”) during which a client’s system is cleansed of substances of abuse (and as a result the client may experience withdrawal symptoms during this period); and a therapy phase during which the underlying causes of addiction are explored and addressed, and the client begins the process of relearning how to live without indulging in the substance abuse which has come to cause such harm to them.

If you, or someone close to you, are in Hounslow and struggling with addiction, going to rehab will remove you from the temptations of daily life and place you in an attractive, secure and, crucially, confidential environment designed to be perfectly conducive to the healing process, staffed by hugely experienced professionals who understand the nature of addiction and the challenges it poses.

As noted above, rehab has proved extremely successful in treating – and therefore saving the lives of – countless addicts; indeed, because of its ability to tackle both the immediacies of physical dependency and the long-term challenges of psychological addiction, rehab is widely considered to be the single most effective way to treat addiction.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

It is a well-known truism that an addict will only be able to benefit from treatment when they truly want to recover; until then even the most capable therapist is unlikely to make much headway against the overwhelming force of physical and psychological addiction.

However, it is crucial to act as soon as an addict reaches the point of admitting to their need for help: in the treatment of addiction time is of the essence, as the longer a person labours under the burden of addiction the greater the chance that they will fall victim to overdose or to a drug-related accident or act of violence.

With this in mind, the lengthy waiting lists for NHS services (suffering under the strain of high and growing demand right across the country, including in Hounslow specifically) become less of an irritation and more of a tragedy in waiting. If you are suffering from addiction and requiring urgent help, do not risk becoming this tragedy: instead, call 0800 024 1455 today to speak with an addiction specialist about which private options may be available to you.

Meanwhile, if your concern is not for yourself but for someone close to you, who is not yet able to admit to their addiction, again don’t waste any more time; call us for advice on arranging an intervention or other tactics designed to get them into a state of readiness to receive the help that could save their life.

Advantages of Private Rehab

Anyone who has wrestled with an addiction will be well aware that the temptations of daily life and the environment in which addiction is developed can make it extremely hard, if not impossible, for someone to attempt to overcome that addiction independently. Rehab provides a peaceful, secure, pleasant and confidential setting far removed from those temptations – such as pubs and off-licences, drug dealers, and easily renewable prescriptions – in which you can focus completely upon your recovery and your well-being.

Upon entering rehab, you will be assessed by medical professionals so they can get a full understanding of your condition and the nature and severity of your addiction, and draw up an individualised treatment plan for you prior to your embarking upon the detox phase, during which any withdrawal symptoms you experience can be treated to a certain extent and your progress can be monitored to ensure your safety.

After detox, you will move into therapy phase during which you will have access to different therapy models (provided in both one-to-one and group settings) designed to get to the root causes of your addiction and to provide you with psychological defence mechanisms against relapse. Throughout your stay, as part of your individualised treatment programme, you will receive a bespoke fitness schedule, and nutritious meals in accordance with a tailored dietary plan (on the basis of “healthy body, healthy mind”).

At the end of your treatment programme, you will leave rehab for the outside world clean of substances of abuse and equipped with the aforementioned defences against relapse. However, this does not mean that you will be “cured” of your addiction: recovery is an ongoing process which requires dedication and constant attention; as a result you will receive free aftercare for up to a year after the completion of your treatment programme, to give you an extra layer of support during the crucial next phase of your recovery.

What Does Rehab Cost near Hounslow?

The cost of private rehab will vary from one facility to another depending on the nature of the treatment programs offered and of the standard of the facility in question (for example, luxury rehabs can logically be expected to cost more). Roughly speaking, standard costs in or near Hounslow range from £5,500 to £11,000 per month, although the cheapest treatment may be obtained for as little as £834 per week.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options in Hounslow

For a number of reasons – possibly to do with the costs mentioned above, or perhaps because they do not feel able to spend the necessary amount of time away from family obligations or work commitments – some people do not feel that a private rehab is an appropriate option for them but there are a large number of NHS and charity resources in and near Hounslow which can help you (or a loved one) overcome addiction.

Advantages of NHS Treatment

Unsurprisingly, the primary advantage of NHS treatment is financial: NHS services are free at the point of delivery while as discussed above private rehab does come at a cost (though it is worth bearing in mind that this cost pales into insignificance against the potential costs – in all senses – of not getting help…).

Another advantage of the NHS is its nationwide coverage; it can offer geographical proximity compared with some rehabs found a long way from Hounslow. Moreover, the NHS provides high-quality services, although these services, as noted earlier, are experiencing extremely high demand and quality does vary from one trust to another.

Addiction Support Groups

Several support group organisations operate in the UK aimed at helping addicts. Support groups are made up of people who are themselves recovering addicts, who come together at regular meetings for mutual support in the form of advice on how to resist relapse and overcome the challenges; solidarity and sympathy; and providing simple companionship which can be so important. Typically, attendance at support groups is free, with the only criterion for participating being 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

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 Hounslow, see the relevant websites:

Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous.

Types of Counselling

Although it is available to anyone with the means, many recovering addicts – especially those with particularly busy schedules – benefit from individual counselling, which can be provided following the completion of a treatment programme at rehab or elsewhere as a supplement to that programme, but which is usually not considered an effective alternative to such a programme. Individual counselling is also sometimes utilised as a means of managing an addiction in advance of engaging in proper treatment.

Like regular psychotherapists, private addiction counsellors offer a huge variety of different approaches to therapy, and operate across the country; they are typically seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis – often weekly – charging by appointment. Access is usually limited to predefined working hours, although some councillors do make themselves available on an emergency basis.
