    Methods of Intervention in Alcoholism

    If you have someone in your family suffering from alcohol or drug addiction, you’ll want to encourage them to go to a drug and alcohol rehab in Derby.

    There is, however, an intervention you can use known as the CRAFT method which empowers you to cope effectively with your loved one’s drug and alcohol use.

    It offers a range of tools and communication styles you can use which positively impacts your relationship.

    How do I know if I am addicted?

    Some parts of drug and alcohol intake are accepted in our society. Within British culture, it almost seems ‘normal’ to have a few drinks after work but when this starts to affect your life, it’s time to seek help.

    We often ask clients to refer to the CAGE questionnaire to determine if an addiction is present. Have a read below. Do any of these things apply to you?

    1. Cut down. Have you ever felt that you need to stop drinking or taking substances?
    2. Annoyed. Have you felt annoyed by criticism of your drug or alcohol intake?
    3. Guilt. Have you ever felt guilty by excessively drinking alcohol or taking drugs?
    4. Eye-opener. Do you feel the need to drink in the morning or consume substances to begin your day properly or get rid of a hangover?

    If the answer is yes to two or more of the above questions, it’s time to seek help from OK Rehab.

    The cost of a rehab stay in Derby

    someone counting money

    If you’re thinking about going to a drug and alcohol rehab in Derby, you’ll be wondering about the cost.

    This really varies depending on the establishment you opt for and the treatments that are offered to you.

    Usually, a stay at rehab for one week will cost anywhere from between £1000-£10,000.

    The more expensive options are where you’d expect to come across the rich and famous. More affordable options still offer excellent services, but the establishments aren’t as opulent.

    Discover how much your stay at a rehab clinic in Derby is likely to cost by calling us today on 0800 326 5559

    Private health insurance and paying for rehab in Derby

    Insurance policy paperwork

    You can choose to pay for rehab through health insurance if you have it. Most policies cover this.

    It will, of course, impact the future cost of your policy if you do claim on it.

    Those who have health insurance through their job will also most likely be under oath to explain to their manager that they have an alcohol or drug addiction and are going to rehab for treatment.

    To get help paying for alcohol or drug addiction treatment services via health insurance, call our team today on 0800 326 5559

    Is there funding to go to rehab if you’re from a low-income household?

    Money in jars

    There is funding available in local communities from the government which pays for some people to go to drug and alcohol rehab in the Derby area. There is criteria that needs to be met in order for you to be considered once you apply.

    • You must be from a low income household.
    • You must be in regular contact with drug and alcohol services and be committed to your recovery.
    • There must be evidence that you’re doing all you can to heal and stop using.

    At this point you can apply to your local council for funding. It’s important to keep in mind that there is steep competition for this funding. With all the effort in the world, it can still be hard to be granted the money because of how many people apply.

    What’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient care in Derby?

    When talking confidentially to one of our friendly members of staff, we can effectively determine what kind of care is needed concerning your addiction.

    Many people believe that inpatient care is the most effective as you are safely monitored by medical staff and provided with nutritious meals and services such as cleaning and laundry.

    By choosing inpatient treatment (also called residential rehab) you can recieve routine and structure, something you may have been missing in the past.

    However, this is not to rule out outpatient care. If we can determine that your addiction isn’t severe, we can offer you outpatient treatment which allows you to be more flexible with your programme.

    This can help if you are working or have other commitments and responsibilities. Outpatient treatment can also provide you with autonomy which many patients prefer.

    If you are experiencing severe physical and mental effects of substance abuse, we advise you to consider residential rehab as an inpatient client.

    This means you are less likely to relapse and can avoid distractions that are found at home.

    Outpatient care can result in more damage for some people who display severe signs of addiction and this can produce setbacks that can be easily avoided in one of our Derby clinics.

    To ensure you receive the best care possible, speak to our team today to create your personal treatment plan. By choosing to seek the private treatment you are making the conscious decision to enter recovery as soon as possible.

    You can avoid long waiting lists and by a short phone call assessment can be offered a referral to a local facility, many of which can offer same-day admissions.

    Alcohol detox and alcohol rehab in Derby

    When you enter a rehab in Derby for alcohol addiction, you’ll enter a withdrawal period. This is one of the reasons that makes it so hard for many people to break the cycle of addiction.

    Alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

    This is why a clinically overseen detox is essential. You will be given access to prescription drugs such as Librium which will make the experience more comfortable.

    Other medications you could get prescribed include Acamprosate (Campral®), the opioid antagonist Naltrexone or antidepressant like nefazodone, desipramine, or imipramine.

    The weaning process lasts up to 10 days.

    After this, the rehab experience will focus on psychologzical healing. You’ll have regular addiction counselling sessions to help you explore your feelings.

    Where necessary, your family will be invited to participate in therapies that support your healing and the family dynamics as a whole.

    It is important to get help today. Drinkers who are consuming at least 80g of alcohol per day for more than 10 years will develop liver disease at a rate of nearly 100%.

    It is also reported that about 14% of alcoholics develop liver cirrhosis if they continue their drinking habits for 8 years. It is best to stop drinking today so that you can have the best chance at a full recovery.

    Do remember that you are not alone. Alcohol addiction is unfortunately common, with a study by Robin Room, Thomas Babor and Jürgen Rehm revealing that ‘4% of the global burden of disease is attributable to alcohol’, accounting for almost as much death and disability as tobacco and high blood pressure (hypertension) globally.

    Cocaine rehab in Derby

    There are many people in recovery from cocaine and crack-cocaine use. Entering rehab for misuse of this substance brings many benefits.

    Actually, this substance isn’t just compulsive in how it forces the person to keep returning to it, it has huge detrimental effects on a person’s mental and physical health.

    People often enter rehab with:

    • Depression
    • Suicidal thoughts
    • Anxiety
    • Paranoia
    • Panic attacks
    • Eroded nose cartilage and skin sores
    • Recurring colds
    • Heart problems

    It’s important for users to have psychotherapy treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

    This is where people learn how to see where their thoughts come from, what triggers the thoughts around drug use, and how to catch and alter them.

    Work focuses on how to change thought patterns as well as behaviours and to build the self-reserve to focus on a future of sobriety.

    Cocaine detox is not necessary, as neither cocaine nor crack cocaine are physically addictive.

    Heroin rehab in Derby

    You can go to a drug and alcohol rehab in Derby to be treated for heroin addiction.

    This is a substance which causes serious withdrawal effects making it incredibly difficult for users to stop taking without medical assistance.

    Symptoms include:

    • Diarrhoea.
    • Nausea and vomiting.
    • Confusion.
    • Delusions and hallucinations.
    • Pain in the bones and muscles.

    The heroin detox period lasts for about a week, maybe a little longer depending on how long it takes for the prescription drug Subutex to support you off heroin in a tapered and safe way.

    After detox, you’ll start therapies such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy which support you to make sense of distressing memories and life events and to respond in emotionally healthy ways going forward.

    You’ll also take part in group sessions where you’ll connect with others and make friendships that could last a lifetime.

    Cannabis rehab in Derby

    cannabis plant

    In Derby, you can enter rehab if you have an addiction to cannabis. It’s actually common for people to develop problematic use with THC strains of cannabis because of how strong it is these days.

    It’s much stronger now than it was 20 years ago.

    A study by Wayne Hall and Louisa Degenhardt identified the adverse side effects of regular use of cannabis during adolescence and into adulthood can include ‘a dependence syndrome, increased risk of motor vehicle crashes, impaired respiratory function, cardiovascular disease, and adverse effects of regular use on adolescent psychosocial development and mental health’.

    Cannabis use causes mental health problems due to the psychoactive effects it has. Many people experience the following…

    • Paranoia
    • Anxiety
    • Mood swings
    • Sleep disturbance (nightmares when withdrawing)
    • Delusions
    • Hallucinations
    • Low motivation and reclusive

    You’ll be supported by specialist staff to understand how cannabis has affected your brain and how this changes your behaviour. You’ll share your experiences with others in one-to-one and group sessions.

    Staff will guide you through conversations such as those following motivational interviewing frameworks. This helps to build your confidence in remaining abstinent.

    Cannabis detox is not necessary.

    Dual diagnosis and addiction treatment at rehab in Derby

    A dual diagnosis might be given to you when you begin rehabilitation. This would become apparent when you have a psychiatric assessment on admittance.

    It basically means that you’re living with both an addiction and mental health disorder.

    Mental health problems might create an addiction because people turn to drugs and alcohol to try and ease their mood, perception, or emotions.

    An addiction can also lead to mental health issues because of how substances change body and brain functioning, upsetting those systems which keep the mind balanced.

    A dual diagnosis will mean that staff will approach both issues in order to support your recovery.

    To learn more about how a drug and alcohol rehab in Derby will work to support your mental health, call us today on 0800 326 5559

    Relapse prevention after rehab in Derby

    You’ll be given a relapse prevention plan when you leave a drug and alcohol rehab in Derby.

    This will support you to remain sober on into the future. There will be steps you and the staff have developed which will focus on developing a healthy life. This might be around health or education, work, hobbies, or family.

    There will also be a section focused on techniques you can use to get you through triggering events.

    These must be practised regularly in order to become more and more effective.

    Obviously, the plan will also outline clearly who to contact should you relapse. This could be an addiction counsellor, a friend or family member, or an alcoholics anonymous sponsor.

    It’s important to follow this guidance in order for you to get back onto the road to recovery quickly.
