What Is Rehab?
Residential rehabilitation – or “rehab” – describes the process by which an addict gets treatment for their addiction at a dedicated facility, as well as being a term for the facility itself. At rehab, a patient undergoes detoxification (“detox”) and withdrawal with medical assistance and engages in therapy which reveals the underlying causes of their addiction, all in a pleasant, safe and confidential environment.
The consensus in the medical community is that rehab is the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction, in that it provides addicts with the greatest chance of achieving a permanent recovery. Its ability to tackle both physical dependency and psychological addiction in one treatment programme is crucial – many methods of treatment focus only on one aspect or the other – and, indeed, in mainstream culture “rehab” has become synonymous with addiction treatment.
How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?
The sooner an addict can admit to their condition and reach out for help, the sooner they can be on their way to rehab to engage in a holistic treatment programme which will set them on the path to a life free of substance abuse. It is not mere hyperbole to suggest that every day counts: addiction is a devastating illness that ruins – and, tragically, all too frequently ends – lives and every day spent under the burden of addiction is one more day when an addict risks doing irreparable harm to themselves or others.
Although the NHS in Corby provides high-quality addiction treatment services, places are limited and waiting times can be lengthy – often, too lengthy for addicts in extreme need of urgent care. If you need professional help, you should not waste any more time before exploring some of the private options open to you: to discuss next steps, call 0800 024 1455 now.
Advantages of Private Rehab
A crucial step during the early phases of recovery is taking an addict away from their substance/s of abuse so they can go through detox (and the withdrawal symptoms that accompany it), cleansing their system to begin a life without drink and drugs.
In rehab, this process may be carried out in an attractive, secluded and, crucially, confidential setting (“crucially” because patients are therefore able to relax confident that their condition will not become common knowledge outside the facility) with the assistance of highly experienced medical personnel on hand to make sure detox and withdrawal are safe and as comfortable as possible (which may involve the provision of certain medicines).
Following detox, patients will move into a therapy phase during which various forms of therapy (in both group and one-to-one settings) will be engaged in, all with the end goal of uncovering fundamental causes of a person’s addiction and providing that person with suitable defence mechanisms to safeguard against relapse.
Throughout their stay, meanwhile, the patient will enjoy bespoke fitness and dietary plans drawn up with careful regard to their physical condition and may avail themselves of fitness and gym equipment on site. At the end of a stay in a quality rehab, a patient – now very much a recovering addict – will receive a year’s free aftercare:

Corby 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 Corby and across Northamptonshire 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
Unsurprisingly, the primary advantage of NHS treatment is financial: NHS services are free at the point of delivery while as discussed above private rehab does come at a cost (though it is worth bearing in mind that this cost pales into insignificance against the potential costs – in all senses – of not getting help…).
Another advantage of the NHS is its nationwide coverage; it can offer geographical proximity compared with some rehabs found a long way from Corby. Moreover, the NHS provides high-quality services, although these services, as noted earlier, are experiencing extremely high demand and quality does vary from one trust to another.
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.
Here, 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.

Types of Counselling
Many recovering addicts benefit from individual counselling – especially useful for people with very busy schedules – provided by private addiction counsellors who operate very much like “normal” psychotherapists (though with an understandable focus on addiction and its ramifications). This model is often of interest to people who have completed a rehab programme and who desire a supplementary aid to their recovery, as well as to those who have not yet engaged in such a programme but who seek a means of managing an addiction doing so at an appropriate time.
Private counsellors can be found across the country and abroad variety of therapeutic models are delivered. Counsellors are typically seen on an ongoing basis by private appointment – usually weekly – and charge a fee per such appointment. The majority of counsellor’s limit access to set working hours, though some do make themselves available for emergency access.
