What Is Rehab?

Widely accepted as the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction – in terms of overcoming both physical dependency and the psychological impulses which both initially lead to and subsequently sustain addiction – residential rehabilitation (“rehab”) provides a holistic combination of therapy, medicine, dietary and fitness regimes, peer-group support and more upon which to build a solid, lifelong recovery.

Rehab is a term for both the process of attending (usually as an inpatient, although outpatient options are available) a dedicated facility for a programme of treatment, and the facility itself. Rehab offers, first, detoxification (“detox”) aimed at cleansing the addict’s system of substances of abuse (assisted by medical professionals on hand to ensure the process is safe and as comfortable as possible); and then the provision of therapy to uncover and address the root causes of addiction.

At rehab, patients can focus upon their recovery in an attractive, tranquil environment perfectly conducive to mental and physical healing, confident that their condition will not become common knowledge in the outside world.

How can I get Someone into Rehab?

Addiction is a cruel illness that ruins lives and can end them in an instant: the risks of overdose or of death in an accident or as a result of violence in which drink, drugs or both have been a factor are ever-present, and as a result the sooner an addict can take the first crucial step and reach out for help, the sooner they can be on their way to a life free of substances of abuse.

NHS addiction treatment services, including rehab, are of a high quality; however, places are extremely limited and waiting times can be lengthy at best. To be sure of avoiding the risks mentioned above, it is imperative to move as quickly as possible; if you or a loved one are in Worcester and desperately need help in the fight against addiction, including the kind of help which only rehab can provide, don’t waste another second before reaching out to explore some of the private options available to you. Call 0800 024 1455 now to discuss next steps.

The Advantages of Private Rehab

The programmes offered by rehabs vary from one to another (as do the level and type of facilities available. However, they all have in common the provision of a secluded, secure, attractive environment in which healing can take place far from the temptations of everyday life and from substances of abuse.

Upon arrival a patient is assessed to give medical professionals an idea of their condition and the severity of their addiction. Following this assessment the patient undergoes a supervised detox (during which, relevant medication may be administered to ameliorate the worst effects of withdrawal). After detox and withdrawal are complete, patients move into a period of therapy aimed at revealing what led them into addiction originally and at ensuring they are fully psychologically equipped to resist the temptation to get back upon that path to destruction.

Bespoke nutritional and physical fitness plans will be administered, while patients will be able to take advantage of various other facilities (differing from one rehab to the next). Patients will usually be offered free aftercare for up to a year upon leaving rehab, in the knowledge that recovery is not achieved simply by leaving the facility after completing the treatment programme, but is a lifelong process requiring dedication and commitment.

What Does Rehab Cost Near Worcester?

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Worcester

Some addicts feel that private rehab is not an option for them, either for reasons of cost, or because they do not feel comfortable spending the required time away from family or their work commitments. If that describes you, don’t give up hope: various NHS and charity resources can be found Worcester and across Worcestershire which can help you combat your addiction. Consult your GP about which 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

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 – and who 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. To find information on meetings in or near Worcester, see the relevant websites:

Types of Counselling

Private addiction counsellors operate like “normal” psychotherapists (though with an obvious emphasis on tackling the causes and consequences of addiction) and are often a very useful option for individuals with very busy schedules who cannot immediately take the necessary time to undergo a full treatment programme at rehab, as well as being a valuable resource for those who have completed rehab and wish to have supplementary support during recovery.

Private counsellors can be found across the country, providing various different therapy models; they can be seen by private appointment – typically on a weekly basis – and charge accordingly. Some counsellors are available on an emergency basis.
