What is Rehab?
Residential rehabilitation – “rehab” – is widely accepted as 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 an addict can build a solid, lifelong recovery.
Rehab involves attending (usually as an inpatient, although outpatient options are available) a dedicated facility for a programme of 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 personal catastrophe which ruins lives; it can also be extremely dangerous, with thousands of people dying from substance abuse each year in the UK and countless more falling victim to drug-related accidents and acts of violence.
As a result, addiction treatment literally saves lives – and the sooner an addict is able to recognise and admit to their condition, and reach out for help, the sooner that help can be provided within the peaceful, caring setting of a quality rehab.
While NHS addiction treatment services are of high quality, there are very few places compared with the number of addicts currently suffering in this country, and waiting times can be extremely lengthy.
If you or someone close to you need help now to combat an addiction, don’t hesitate: every day matters. Reach out now to discuss some of the private options available to you, by calling 0800 024 1455 to speak with an addiction specialist.
Advantages of Private Rehab
Rehab provides a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting in which an addict can focus fully on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of the outside world and the environment in which they have succumbed to repeated substance abuse and addiction.
Upon entering rehab, an addict will undergo a thorough assessment before embarking on a period of detoxification supervised and assisted by highly experienced medical personnel 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.

Beverley NHS Addiction Treatment Options
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 Beverley and across East Yorkshire 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 offputting 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
Several organisations exist across the country to aid 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.
They 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.
Each local support group chapter is run independently, and meeting schedules and venues are of necessity subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Beverley, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous

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.
