What Is Rehab?
Rehab – “residential rehabilitation”, in full – is the name for both the treatment of addiction at a dedicated facility, and the facility itself; because of the prominence of rehab in the public eye (itself a result of the model’s superlative record in treating addiction in patients from all walks of life, including some very high-profile addicts) rehab has become almost synonymous with addiction treatment in general.
At rehab – which is typically set in attractive and tranquil surroundings in which patients can focus wholly on their recovery – addicts benefit from a bilateral approach to treatment: rehab addresses both the immediate problem of physical dependency and the longer-term challenge of psychological addiction, and as a result is generally considered to be the most effective means of combating addiction, in terms of giving patients the greatest chance of achieving a permanent recovery.
How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction can destroy lives gradually and inexorably – but it can also end them in an instant, as a result of overdose, accident, or acts of violence. Because of this, every moment counts in the fight against substance abuse. The quality of NHS addiction treatment services is high – but, unfortunately, so is the demand for them, especially in areas with a high population such as Grimsby and its environs.
If you are wrestling with addiction, you may need urgent help and NHS waiting times may simply be too lengthy. Don’t allow any more time to slip by before getting help: reach out today to find out about some private options available to you which could mean the difference between life and death.
Advantages of Private Rehab
The tranquil, safe, secluded and confidential setting of rehab is perfect for quiet contemplation and concentration upon recovery; away from the environment in which they have succumbed to substance abuse and addiction, an addict can take stock of all they have experienced and begin the process of rebuilding.
Upon entering rehab, an addict will be assessed by a medical team to establish their physical and mental condition and the extent of their addiction before commencing the detox phase during which they will experience withdrawal; detox at rehab is supervised and assisted by highly trained professionals and, where appropriate, made easier by relevant medication.
Once the patient’s system is cleansed of substances of abuse, they will enter the therapy phase during which various forms of therapy are applied – in both group and one-to-one settings – with the aim of uncovering the fundamental causes of their addiction and providing them with defence mechanisms to safeguard against relapse. Meanwhile, they will benefit from bespoke dietary and fitness plans and from a variety of other resources available at the facility.
At the end of their stay, the patient will leave rehab – but recovery will be by no means complete. This is an ongoing process requiring constant attention and dedication; as a result, quality rehabs will provide up to a year of free aftercare, to give the patient the extra reassurance and comfort that they do not have to face any obstacles ahead without help.
What Does Rehab Cost in Grimsby?
The cost of private rehab in or near Grimsby can vary significantly by treatment programme, and depending on which of a variety of optional extras are selected. As a rough guide, standard costs range from between £5,500 and £11,000 per month, though the cheapest rehab treatment can start from as little as £834 per week. For more details, call 0800 804 4755.
NHS Addiction Treatment Options near Grimsby
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 Grimsby and across Lincolnshire 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 most obvious advantage of NHS treatment is financial: as noted above, private rehab comes at a cost (although compared with the costs – financial and otherwise – of sustaining an addiction, this investment may be considered minor) while NHS options are free at the point of use. They are also very accessible geographically – the NHS operates in every corner of the country – and of a high standard of service; however, it should be noted that quality does vary from one NHS trust to another and that, as discussed above, waiting times can be prohibitive.
Addiction Support Groups
Support groups comprise individuals who are themselves recovering addicts – some only recently free from addiction, while others may have been clean for many years – who come together at regular meetings to give and take mutual support: offering advice, sharing stories, showing solidarity and sympathy, and providing simple companionship. 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) is the most famous support group organisation and the one on which most others are modelled.
AA 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. Supporting those recovering from addictions to specific substances are organisations including Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes.
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 Grimsby, see the relevant websites: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Cocaine Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; Marijuana Anonymous; Crystal Meth Anonymous
Types of Counselling
Individual counselling is a type of help for recovering addicts which can be particularly beneficial for people with very busy schedules. individual counselling may be engaged in following a stay at rehab (or other addiction treatment) as a supplementary aid to recovery, or perhaps as a way of managing an addiction before engaging in a full training programme. Private addiction counsellors work in ways similar to the operations of “normal” psychotherapists, although obviously, the focus is on addressing the causes and consequences of addiction; counsellors offering a broad range of approaches to therapy and different therapy models can be found across the country, including in Grimsby.
Counsellors can be seen by private appointment, typically on a weekly basis, and usually charge a fee per appointment; while some counsellors make themselves available for emergencies, it is more common for access to be limited to working hours.
