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 imperative to get an addict help as soon as they are prepared to request it: time is absolutely of the essence because addiction can prove fatal at any time, as a result either of overdose or of the type of accident or violent act in which substance abuse is so often a factor. While it is a truism that an addict is only ready for treatment when they are able to admit to their addiction, it is also true that the longer they struggle with that addiction the more likely it is to end in their death or that of another.
With this in mind, the lengthy waiting times associated with NHS services – however high the quality of those services may be – become a serious issue. If you are struggling with addiction, do not waste any time: speak to an addiction specialist today on 0800 024 1455 to discuss the potentially life-changing – and life-saving – private options available to you.
Advantages of Private Rehab
As mentioned above, rehab offers addicts a peaceful, confidential, secluded and secure setting in which to focus entirely upon their recovery away from the environment which has proven so damaging to them and in which they have been unable to resist the allure of substances of abuse.
When a patient enters rehab they undergo a thorough assessment prior to commencing a period of detox which is assisted by highly trained medical personnel who are there to ensure that the process is a safe as possible, and that the experience of withdrawal is made as easy as it can be (potentially with the help of various medications).
Once detox has been completed and the patient’s system has been cleansed of substances of abuse, they will enter the therapy phase: various forms of therapy – both group and one-to-one – and different therapy models will be provided, aims at uncovering the root causes of addiction and at giving the patient appropriate defence mechanisms designed to help them resist relapse.
Throughout their stay each patient will benefit from a tailored fitness and dietary plan – on the understanding that a healthy mind requires a healthy body – and from various other resources available on site (which will differ from one facility to another). Upon leaving the facility, a patient’s recovery is by no means complete: it is an ongoing process involving countless challenges and potential pitfalls. Because of this, good rehabs will provide up to a year’s free aftercare, giving the patient vital security and reassurance for their endeavours.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options near Leamington Spa
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 Leamington Spa and across Warwickshire 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 offputting 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
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 Leamington Spa, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous.
Types of Counselling
Individual counselling 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 – and is especially useful for those who currently do not have the ability to take the time out necessary for an in-depth treatment programme such as rehab.
Private addiction counsellors operate like regular psychotherapists, and counsellors offering a variety of different therapy models can be found across the country; they are usually seen by private appointment – typically on a weekly basis – and charge a fee per appointment. While some counsellors make themselves available for emergency access, most limit access to working hours.
