Is There Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Nottinghamshire?

Living with an addiction can be a lonely and devastating experience. The lifestyle coupled with the stigma attached to being an addict can often leave people feeling very alone and unsupported. Often the addiction that once seemed like a coping mechanism just ends up exacerbating preexisting mental and emotional issues. If you or a loved one need help, alcohol and drug rehab in Nottinghamshire is available.

What Is Addiction?

Addiction is a confusing illness, not least because no two addicts are the same. Historically addicts have been thought of as being weak willed or as bad people, but addiction is an illness. Addiction is a neurological disorder that it is characterized by an inability to choose to stop using. Research shows us that long-term changes to the brain and its chemistry impact decision-making centers of the brain.

No one plans to be an addict or an alcoholic but for varying reasons some people cross the line into addiction. When deciding whether to attend rehab it is useful to consider how your drinking and using is impacting your life. Some questions to consider:

Are you able to moderate your drinking or using?

Are you able to stop drinking ad using entirely for a while?

Do you find yourself drinking and using even though you had planned not to?

Do you suffer withdrawal symptoms when you don’t have a drink or a drug?

Do you find your self drinking and using in secret?

When you are deciding whether or not to go for treatment think about how your drinking and using is impacting your life, your relationships, and your health – mental, physical and emotional. If you are suffering in these areas, and have been unable to control your drinking and using, we are here to help you.

Aftercare and Relapse Prevention Options in Nottinghamshire

In the Nottinghamshire rehab clinics you will practice recovery behaviours and ways of thinking. Recovery works in the same way as going to the gym – as working out your arms builds muscle memory so working out your ways of thinking and feeling builds neurological memory. Being in recovery and turning those self-destructive patterns around will become easier and easier overtime.

The risk of relapse is generally highest in the first months following rehab. We will minimize this risk by providing you with a comprehensive aftercare package. Please be reassured that you will be discharged with a full relapse prevention plan in place. This will consist of:

  • Regular and ongoing aftercare sessions. – We know that those who attend regular aftercare sessions are more likely to maintain their sobriety and their peace of mind.
  • Ongoing contact with your counsellor – regular contact with your focal counsellor and peers will help you to keep up all the skills and tools that you have learned in treatment.
  • Contact with your own GP- we will contact your doctor with discharge information so that continuing care can be put in place for you should you need it.
  • Second and third stage care – If appropriate accommodation if that is necessary, we may be able to provide you with longer term ‘dry’ accommodation accompanied minimal support from a key worker.
  • Support Groups – We highly recommend the Alcoholics and Narcotics anonymous fellowships as a source of ongoing support. These groups provide a community of recovering people. The only requirement for membership is the desire to stop using or drinking and there are no fees for membership.

What happens in one-to-one sessions?

Individual counselling sessions will typically last for one hour and will be between you and your focal counsellor. During these sessions the therapist will listen and help you to share, process, accept and heal. These sessions are private and confidential and will be a part of your therapeutic rehab plan.

What happens in group therapy?

Group sessions will usually consist of a fairly small group of peers in the programme, the other clients in the treatment center, and facilitated by a therapist and support staff. In these sessions you will benefit from hearing the insights and experience of your peers and share your insights and experiences with the group.

What is art therapy?

Guided expressive art workshops which provide therapeutic insight and help with processing emotion.

What are the 12 steps?

In rehab you will receive an introduction to the 12 Steps- An abstinence based approach which offers the opportunity for an ongoing recovery community upon leaving treatment.

Why do we have family groups?

Addiction is often called a family disease, affecting partners, children, parents and siblings. Our programme supports and incorporates family members.

How much will rehab cost?

Privately funding your rehab program in will mean that there will probably be little or even no waiting list prior to your assessment and admission, and is usually the preferred option if you have the means with which to pay.  You may be eligible for NHS funding – a first port of call to find out about an NHS funded place in rehab is a visit to your doctor. Your doctor should be able to refer you to your local drug and alcohol service and from there you can be referred either to a community based rehab program or to residential treatment. The quality of the care you receive will not be affected by whether or not you pay privately. Nottinghamshire drugs and alcohol services are committed to providing you with conscientious, evidence based, excellent care.

Will my treatment be confidential?

Rest assured that information, including whether or not you are a resident, will only be disclosed to those named on a list that you have given to staff. In addition to this there will be a strict policy of confidentiality and all our stuff are trained in upholding confidentiality.

What about gender and addiction?

Addiction can affect people from all walks of life, regardless of age, race and background. One outdated stereotype is that addicts and alcoholics are all men. In fact far more men than women did access rehab, but that does not hold true today. Now women are one of the fastest growing addicted populations. Studies show that women actually experience an accelerated progression from the initiation of substance use to the onset of dependency. There may be gender specific consequences related to a life of addiction.

What is process addiction?

Some people are addicted to behaviours, rather than to a chemical substance. This could be to things like gambling, disordered eating, sex and love, or shopping.   The neurological reward system in a process addiction is triggered the same way as substance addiction. Behaviour addicts often experience the same consequences and obsessive thinking as do drug addicts and alcoholics.
