Private Rehab

Private rehab centres serve as addiction treatment facilities that offer intensive inpatient programmes. Undertaking this type of rehab will give you a great chance of successfully overcoming your addiction, as you’ll be guided and monitored by professional carers throughout each stage of the recovery process

A medical detox team will work alongside you cleanse your body of toxins and use approved medications to eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once this process is complete, you’ll undergo therapeutic rehabilitation, during which psychotherapy will be applied to address any underlying reasons for your addiction.

There are CQC accredited private rehab centres in the West Midlands, with strong reputations for successfully treating addiction. Rehab at private clinics usually compromises group and one-to-one counselling sessions, as well as therapies such as the 12-step model, CBT, meditation, DBT, and other behavioural therapies. Furthermore, most facilities include music and art therapy – as well as sports and fitness – to their rehabilitation schedule.

How Can I Get to the West Midlands?

The West Midlands is a county surrounded by Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire. The county has three cities (Birmingham, Coventry, and Wolverhampton) and several towns (Dudley, Solihull, Tipton, Walsall, among others), among other areas.

By Road

Motorways such as the M5, M6, M69 and M42 conveniently serve the West Midlands, providing connections to Coventry and Birmingham. There are other A roads, such as the A45 and that link the county to other towns and cities across the UK.

If you’re travelling to, for example, Wolverhampton from Stafford, the ride would take you through the M6 towards the south. After the toll charge near Great Saredon, you will have to take the fourth exit at the roundabout and start driving on the A460 which will take you straight into Wolverhampton. The whole trip will last about 40 minutes in a normal driving environment without any uncommon traffic.

By Train

Birmingham New Street station has speedy train services operated by Virgin that go to and from London Euston, stopping at Coventry on the mainline. Coventry also lies on the Bournemouth to Manchester train route, operated by Cross Country.

If we take the same example from above, the trip between Stafford and Wolverhampton will last 17 minutes with the West Midlands train taken at Stafford Sta towards Birmingham New Street. Wolverhampton is the fourth station on this route.

A train ride from Warwick to Coventry will last about 30 minutes – you can take the Chiltern Railways train for London Marylebone and transfer at Leamington Spa to the West Midlands Train towards Coventry. From London to Coventry, the ride lasts about 50 minutes and is a direct ride on a Virgin train from Euston to Coventry. Travelling from London to Wolverhampton, location much further than Coventry, you will have to switch trains at Birmingham New Street to a CrossCountry line for Manchester Piccadilly via Stoke-on-Trent. This route takes one hour and forty-five minutes. In comparison, by car, it would take three hours via the M40.

By Plane

There are multiple airports in the county including Birmingham International Airport, located in Solihull. Keep in mind that, although the name suggests otherwise, Coventry International Airport is in fact located in Warwickshire. It is, however, still, a good option for reaching locations within the West Midlands..
