What Is Rehab?
Residential rehabilitation is considered the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction, in terms of overcoming the immediate challenges of physical and psychological dependency whilst also creating a strong platform (via a holistic combination of therapy, medicine, dietary and fitness regimes, peer-group support and more) upon which a person can build a solid, lifelong recovery.
Rehab involves attending (usually as an inpatient, although outpatient options are available) a professional dedicated facility for treatment aimed at cleansing the addict’s system of substances of abuse before using various therapy models to uncover and address the root causes of addiction. At rehab, patients have 24/7 access to highly qualified and experienced medical professionals, whilst being able to focus solely upon their recovery in an attractive, tranquil environment perfectly conducive to mental and physical healing. Moreover, rehabs are totally confidential institutions, ensuring that patients can relax confident that their condition will not become common knowledge in the outside world.
How can I get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction is a serious illness and it ruins lives, and the sooner a person can set out upon the road to recovery, the better – not simply because every day that goes by whilst they struggle with addiction is one more which cannot be spent enjoying all the wonderful things which a clean and sober life can offer, but because the consequences of addiction for physical and mental health can be catastrophic, and each day spent feeding an addiction is another day of damage to mind, body and soul.
The quality of NHS addiction treatment services is very high, but unfortunately so is demand for them and waiting times can be extremely long. If you or someone you love are wrestling with addiction, don’t waste any more time: reach out today to discuss some of the private options which may be available to you. Call 0800 024 1455 to speak with an addiction specialist.
The Advantages of Private Rehab
The specific treatment programmes offered by rehabs vary from one facility to another, as do the level and type of facilities available. However, all have in common that they provide a secluded and secure environment in which healing can take place away from the temptations of an addict’s daily life (including of course access to substances of abuse).
Patients will be assessed upon arrival to allow medical professionals to get a firm idea of their condition and the severity of their addiction before undergoing a supervised detox (which may involve the administration of relevant medication). After detox and withdrawal are complete, patients undergo therapy aimed at ensuring they understand what led them into addiction originally and preparing them to resist the temptation to rejoin that path.
Rehabs will typically offer tailored nutritional and physical fitness plans (on the basis that a healthy body is vital for a healthy mind) along with various other facilities; patients will also usually be offered free aftercare for up to a year after their stay in rehab, in the knowledge that recovery is not complete upon leaving the facility, but is a lifelong process.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Redruth
If you feel that private rehab is currently not an option for you for any number of reasons, – whether it’s down to cost or lack of time – then there are various NHS and charity resources available in Redruth and across Cornwall 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 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.
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 Redruth, see the relevant websites:
Types of Counselling
One form of assistance for recovering addicts which is especially beneficial for those with extremely busy schedules is individual counselling – which 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.
Private addiction counsellors operate very much like regular psychotherapists, though with an obvious emphasis on tackling the causes and consequences of addiction. Private counsellors offering a wide variety of different approaches to therapy can be found across the country; they can be seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis – usually weekly – and typically charge a fee per appointment. Some counsellors make themselves available for emergency access while others limit access to working hours.
