What Is Rehab?

More formally entitled “residential rehabilitation”, rehab is widely considered to be the most effective approach to addiction treatment in terms of providing an addict with the greatest chance of a permanent recovery. Rehab addresses the immediate challenges of physical and psychological dependency whilst also (via a holistic combination of therapy, medicine, dietary and fitness regimes, peer-group support and more) enabling patents to understand the origins of addiction and work to ensure they do not return to such destructive patterns and habits once back in the outside world.

At rehab, patients are treated by and have 24/7 access to highly qualified medical professionals who understand the nature of addiction and the great difficulty of escaping it once it has set in. Within attractive, peaceful and secure settings perfectly conducive to mental and physical healing, patients are able to focus solely upon their recovery; moreover, rehabs are totally confidential institutions, ensuring patients’ confidence that details of their condition will not reach the outside world.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

When it comes to battling addiction, time is of the essence: every day that goes by while someone is struggling with substance abuse is another day during which they are risk of overdose, or of suffering from an accident or a violent act driven by drink or drugs. Viewed from another perspective, the sooner an addict is prepared to admit to their condition and seek help, the sooner that help can be provided and the sooner they can set out on their journey to recovery.

The NHS offers various addiction treatment services, including rehab, and many are of a very high standard: however, demand is extremely high (especially in a high-risk location such as Kidderminster) and waiting times can be disconcertingly long. If you desperately need help, you may not wish to waste any more time before exploring the private options which are available to you. To discuss next steps, call 0800 024 1455 now.

Advantages of Private Rehab

Rehab offers addicts a peaceful, confidential, safe, secure and secluded setting in which to focus on recovery without being distracted by the temptations of the outside world and the lifestyle in which they have succumbed to addiction. Upon entering rehab, an addict will be assessed to establish their physical and mental condition and the severity of their addiction before going through a period of detoxification (“detox”) and withdrawal which will be supervised by highly experienced medical personnel to ensure the process is as safe and as comfortable as possible; this may include the provision of medication to ameliorate withdrawal symptoms.

Following detox, a patient will engage in therapy (of various forms, and in both group and one-to-one settings) which will uncover the root causes of addiction and provide the patient with psychological defence mechanisms safeguard against relapse. During their stay, they will benefit from bespoke dietary and fitness plans as well as from other resources which will vary from one rehab to the next. Upon leaving the facility, they will receive free aftercare for up to one year, in recognition of the fact that recovery is no simple matter and is not achieved simply by leaving rehab, but must be worked for on an ongoing basis.

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 Kidderminster, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous

Types of Counselling

For recovering addicts with busy schedules, as well as for those who have gone through a full treatment program at rehab and which to keep a degree of professional support during the next phase of their recovery – and even for addicts who have not yet embarked upon treatment but who wish to manage an addiction ahead of doing so – one popular form of assistance is individual counselling.

Private addiction counsellors operate very like regular psychotherapists: they offer a broad variety of different therapy models and approaches to treatment and can be seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis (usually week by week), charging a fee per appointment. Private counsellors can be found throughout the country and some may be available for emergency access as well as for regular appointments during working hours.
