What Is Rehab?

Residential rehabilitation (or “rehab”) is the name given to a dedicated facility where addiction treatment is provided, and to the treatment itself – usually comprising both a detoxification (“detox”) phrase and a period of therapy. At rehab, patients benefit from a peaceful, attractive, confidential setting in which they can concentrate upon their recovery, away from their usual environment of substance abuse, and confident that details of their condition will not become common knowledge.

It is nowadays generally accepted that rehab provides the most effective treatment of addiction, in terms of producing permanent abstinence on behalf of the addict. Rehab’s holistic approach, addressing both the immediate challenge of physical dependency (via detox) and the more pernicious problem of psychological addiction (which needs to be countered by therapy) contrasts with a plethora of treatment methods addressing only one aspect (typically physical dependency) of addiction; the latter is unlikely to result in a permanent recovery since the underlying causes of addiction remain untouched.

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 Coventry 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

As noted above, a good rehab provides a peaceful, highly secure, secluded and confidential setting in which an addict can concentrate on their recovery away from the temptations of the outside world and the environment in which substance abuse has become a way of life.

When an addict enters rehab they will be given a thorough assessment of their condition and the extent of their addiction, and will then begin a detox to cleanse their system of substances of abuse; this detox will be supervised by highly experienced medical personnel to ensure that the process is as safe as possible and that the experience of withdrawal is made as comfortable as it can be (which may involve the provision of certain medications).

Following the detox phase a patient will engage in various forms of therapy which will uncover the root causes of addiction (crucial if the patient is to go on to lead a drug- and/or alcohol-free life) and will give them psychological defence mechanisms to prevent relapse.

They will also benefit from tailored fitness and dietary plans, and from a plethora of other resources available in the facility. Following a stay in rehab, because recovery is an ongoing process which is not simply complete when the patient leaves the facility, they will also receive aftercare in various forms, which is usually free for up to a year at good facilities.

What Does Rehab Cost in Coventry?

The cost of private rehab will vary from one facility to another depending on the nature of the treatment programs offered and of the standard of the facility in question (for example, luxury rehabs can logically be expected to cost more). Roughly speaking, standard costs in or near Coventry range from £5,500 to £11,000 per month, although the cheapest treatment may be obtained for as little as £834 per week.

Coventry NHS Addiction Treatment Options

Private rehab may not be an option for everybody – possibly for reasons of cost, or perhaps because you do not feel it is feasible for you to spend a significant period away from your family and/or work commitments. Do not give up hope if this is the case: there are a number of NHS and charity resources in and near Coventry which can help you or a loved one tackle even the longest-standing addiction. Talk to your GP about which of these might be open to you and would be appropriate for your situation.

Advantages of NHS Treatment

One clear advantage of NHS treatment is cost; NHS services are free at the point of delivery while, as noted above, private rehab does come at a cost which can be off-putting for many people (though it should not be forgotten that this cost needs to be measured against the costs – financial and other – of not getting treatment and continuing to live with addiction; from that perspective rehab may be considered the best investment one will ever make).

Another benefit the NHS can offer is geographical accessibility, providing services throughout the country while many rehabs are quite some distance from Coventry, while the standard of NHS services is also high (though quality does vary from one trust the next and as noted previously waiting times can be very lengthy).

Addiction Support Groups

Alongside treatment facilities and programs able to address the immediate challenges of addiction and dependency, various organisations are active across the UK helping addicts who are in recovery.
Some of these operate on a support group model: groups of people who are themselves recovering addicts who convene at regular (often weekly) meetings for mutual support, advice on staying sober and clean, and simple companionship and friendship (which can be key for many addicts who struggle with loneliness after turning their backs on drug-abusing peer groups).

Support group attendees may be only recently free from addiction or may have been clean for long periods; they come from all demographics and are brought together by their shared experiences of addiction and recovery. Usually, attendance at such groups is free: the only requirement is a commitment to abstaining from substances of abuse.

The best-known support group organisation – and one on which many others have been modelled – is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Founded in 1935, AA provides the famous 12-step programme of personal and spiritual progress (one of the steps being to acknowledge that a higher power – such as God – governs one’s life and can help with an alcoholic’s recovery). Narcotics Anonymous (NA) was founded in 1953 based on the AA model and is the second-largest support group organisation internationally, specifically aimed at helping recovering drug addicts.

Along similar lines 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.

Types of Counselling

A form of help which can be particularly useful for people with very busy schedules, individual counselling may be engaged in following the completion of a treatment programme at rehab, or potentially prior to engaging in such a programme, as a way of managing an addiction on a temporary basis.

Private addiction counsellors are similar to regular psychotherapists (though obviously with a more specific focus) in that they can be seen by private appointment on an ongoing – usually weekly – basis and offer a broad variety of different therapy models. Private counsellors can be found throughout the country and usually charge per appointment.
