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.
Rehabs offer both inpatient and outpatient programmes. Inpatient programmes require patients to remain at the facility for the duration of their treatment, and although this is considered the best option to ensure long-term abstinence, for many people it may not be convenient. Outpatient programmes allow patients to access treatment and resources and returning home in the evenings.
How can I get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction is still very much stigmatised in today’s society, with many people still unwilling to discuss it. However, the reality is that drug, alcohol and behavioural addictions have the power to ruin lives, and so if you suspect a friend or family member has been misusing substances it is vital you encourage them to get help immediately.
It is important that the addict is aware of their options before deciding on the best course of action for themselves. If speaking to them directly isn’t successful, then you may want to look into staging an intervention. This involves gathering loved ones together and explaining to the addict the effects their addiction is having on everyone else as well as themselves.
Interventions have a relatively high success rate when it comes to getting people into rehab. If you wish to find out more about hot to set up an intervention, call 020 3131 2536 to speak to an advisor.
What are the advantages of private rehab?
For many people, addiction cannot be overcome until they have undergone professional treatment. Not only does rehab provide a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting for patients to focus on their recovery, it also offers personalised recovery plans, many types of therapy, and aftercare support. Once a patient has entered rehab and been through a thorough assessment, they will then go through the detoxification process assisted by highly experienced medical staff on hand to assure that detox and withdrawal are as safe and as comfortable as possible.
After detox, patients engage in various forms of therapy – both one-to-one and group – aimed at addressing the root causes of their addiction and developing the defence mechanisms necessary to safeguard against relapse; they will also benefit from bespoke dietary and fitness plans and from an array of other resources available on site. At the end of a stay in any quality rehab, patients will receive free aftercare for up to a year: recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is an ongoing process with numerous pitfalls which rehab can continue to help the recovering addict navigate around.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Sheffield
It is quite possible that for various reasons you may not currently feel that rehab is an option which is available to you – perhaps you are put off by the potential costs mentioned above, or you do not feel that you can spend anywhere from a month to 3 months or more away from family, work, and other obligations. If this is indeed the case, however, you must not despair: there are a number of NHS and charity resources in and around Sheffield and West Yorkshire which can help you fight your addiction. Reach out your GP to get details on which of these resources may be available to you.
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
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 Sheffield, see the relevant websites:

Types Of Counselling
One type of treatment which is proving of particular interest to professionals with busy schedules is individual counselling. Private addiction counsellors work along similar lines to regular psychotherapists, offering a broad variety of different approaches to therapy and different therapy models. Counsellors can be found throughout the UK, and are usually seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis (typically weekly) with a fee charged per appointment.
Some people engage in private counselling following attendance at rehab if they wish to retain some kind of professional treatment and contact during this next phase of recovery; on the other hand, private counsellors are also often useful for addicts who have not yet been through a treatment programme at rehab, but who wish to attempt to manage their addictions to a certain extent ahead of such a step.
