How to support a loved one before rehab
What can be really difficult when you have a loved one with an addiction is knowing what to do for the best. You might feel desperate to get them into a drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire, but unless they’re ready, your efforts are unlikely to be successful.
There is, though, an intervention you can use which supports you, your family, and the person with the addiction.
The CRAFT intervention offers you techniques that you can apply during interactions with your loved one.
It’s based on using positive reinforcement as a basis to inspire ongoing healthy behaviours and family dynamics.
Many people throughout the world have entered rehab following on from this family approach.

How do I determine whether I have a current drug or alcohol addiction problem?
It can be difficult, particularly when you’re in the throes of a current addiction problem, to recognise that you have a problem and even when you do recognise it, admitting it to yourself and then to others is a big challenge.
It’s often much easier for others to see that you are struggling with addiction, however, this can be a difficult thing for friends and family to raise and is often met with a defensive response.
Admitting that you need to find and accept help with an addiction is a huge step, but something to be proud of. It shows strength and that same strength can be put to good work throughout your recovery.
The fact is, if you’re reading about how to determine whether or not you are struggling with addiction, then there is a strong likelihood that you are.
Something about your recent behaviour has caused concern, even if you’re unsure exactly what that was.
In order to help you identify when your substance use has become an addiction or is showing signs that it could become one soon, answer the questions below honestly to yourself.
If you answer yes more than once or twice then the chances are, it’s time to find that help:
- Has your drug and/or alcohol consumption increased over time?
- Are you unable to go for a day without using drugs or alcohol?
- Do you continue to use drugs and/or alcohol, even though you already experienced or are aware of the potential negative side effects?
- Have you noticed your mental health has declined and had existing mental health issues worsened?
- Do you feel physical and/or mentally unwell when you don’t have access to substances?
- Do you make life decisions based around your drug or alcohol use, either to accommodate the usage or to source them?
- Have you noticed that your drug or alcohol use has negatively impacted your work, friendships or relationships?
- Have close friends and family raised concern about your substance use?
These are just some of the signs and symptoms of a drug and/or alcohol addiction, there are many more and these will vary depending on what you take, how regularly and in what quantities.
Addictions also worsen over time, so your symptoms may advance if you don’t seek help as soon as you begin to notice these.

Do I have the funds to go to rehab in Derbyshire?
You’ll likely be wondering how much it costs to go to a drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire. The price range varies according to the clinic, location, and what services and treatments are available. Usually, though, it costs around £1000-£10,000 a week to go to rehab.
This, of course, covers your place to stay, food, any medications prescribed, as well as specialist staff and resources needed for activities.

Does health insurance cover the cost of rehab?
Yes, if you have private health insurance, it’s highly likely that the policy will cover the stay of your treatment at rehab.
You’ll want to check the paperwork to confirm and keep in mind that paying your insurance in the future will cost a bit more due to the claim you’ve made.
Where people have health insurance through their place of work, it’s likely to include rehab, but with the clause that you have to notify your employers of the illness and plan to go to rehab.
For help using health insurance to access addiction treatment services in Derbyshire, call us on 0800 326 5559
Does the NHS offer any funding to pay for rehab treatment in Derbyshire?
In Derbyshire, there is some limited funding available for those who are from low income backgrounds to enter rehab.
There are, however, eligibility requirements that need to be met.
Those interested in applying for funding from the local councils need to be in regular contact with drug and alcohol services.
They should be able to demonstrate that they’re committed to recovery through attending regular support sessions.
The council receives many applications and it’s up to them to decide who, out of many worthy entrants, is to be granted the funding.

How long is a course of treatment at rehab in Derbyshire?
When you enter rehab you’ll likely go through a detox period, as well as starting daily therapies, addiction counselling and holistic activities. Everything you learn needs time to be practised each day.
This is to help you remain sober long-term.
To fully immerse yourself at rehab and in developing healthy new patterns of behaviour, the most usual length of time to stay at rehab is 28 days.

Private vs NHS drug addiction treatment services in Derbyshire
In Derbyshire, there are two types of rehabilitation services you can access:
- Private clinics
- Government-funded NHS services
Private rehab clinics offer you 24-hour care 7 days a week. Specialist staff lead you through therapies and alternative treatments to ensure every aspect of healing is approached.
There are treatments to tackle the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of recovery. You’ll also enjoy being cooked for by the in-house chef!
Government-funded addiction treatment services offer you treatments when they have available slots.
You remain living at home and go to the clinic at a particular time. Treatments include drop-in clinics, 12 Step sessions, and supportive conversations with drug and alcohol workers.

Is residential rehab essential or can I opt for outpatient treatment?
There are outpatient treatments available to you in the Derbyshire and wider East Midlands area and we can understand how these options offer greater flexibility for many people, especially those with important life commitments, such as parenting.
Outpatient services do have the potential to help some people achieve addiction recovery, but it should be stressed that this is only generally achievable by those in the very early stages of an addiction problem.
Attending outpatient rehab requires a large degree of self-control and personal schedule management, which is not commonly fitting with those exhibiting addiction behaviours.
You must be able to attend each session and much of the recovery burden will fall to you between your support sessions.
Residential rehab is recommended as the most effective option as it achieves the highest success rates. There are a number of reasons this works well, from the intensity of the daily sessions to the seclusion of being removed from your daily life and away from your ordinary triggers.
At one of our partner rehab centres, you can expect a comfortable recovery experience with a private room and all of your daily needs taken care of.
You will be immersed in an environment that is relaxing and peaceful, which was designed specifically for the purpose of recovery.
The opportunity to build a support network and valuable friendships with those who have similar struggles is there, should you want it and many clients take a great deal of relief in this opportunity.

Heroin rehab in Derbyshire
- Pain in the body
A heroin detox with the support of the prescription drug Subutex is very likely. It will last about 7-10 days and will mean you wean off heroin gradually and in a way that is much more comfortable than trying to go “cold turkey” on your own.
After the detox, you’ll start other activities which encourage you to be in the mind and body in a present way.
You’ll be guided to understand how to process uncomfortable memories and emotions in a healthy way.
As well as this, you’ll start to learn and practise how to manage cravings effectively.

What kind of treatment will I experience at rehab in Derbyshire?
Many people who struggle with addiction have experienced life events that have driven them towards this type of behaviour. For example:
- Childhood abuse
- Pre-existing mental health issues
- Traumatic events
- Loss of a loved one
There will be emotional and social triggers to address, as well as the underlying cause of your problem.
This is an essential aspect of rehabilitation, as even though you have achieved sobriety, the desire to return to addictive behaviours will remain if the causes are not removed.
There are a variety of different types of psychological therapy sessions used throughout addiction treatment and your plan could consist of any or all of the below, amongst others:
- Family therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Dialectical behavioural therapy
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
- Motivational interviewing
- Motivational enhancement therapy
- Alternative therapy/holistic therapy, such as art therapy, music therapy, equine therapy, mindfulness and meditation
The goal of this combination of treatments is to help you understand why your addictive behaviours exist, to receive proper professional help for any underlying psychological or mental health issues and to build up the resolve required to sustain your sobriety beyond the rehab programme.

What happens if I receive a dual diagnosis at rehab in Derbyshire?
During therapy, it is fairly common for people to receive a dual diagnosis.
If the reason you turned to addiction in the first place has not been properly addressed, then it will still be an issue and even those without pre-existing mental health problems often develop them as a result of prolonged substance use.
These can include:
It’s critical to the continued success of your rehab that this type of issue does not go untreated and therefore the addiction specialists will ensure that you are referred to a suitable local mental health service in the local Derbyshire area so that you have the opportunity to resolve any newly diagnosed problems.

It will include techniques to use when you feel emotionally triggered or a craving sweep in.

Your relapse prevention plan will also outline steps to take should you relapse. It’s really important to follow these so that you’re as safe as possible and can return to recovery as soon as possible.

After rehab, who can you speak to?
When you leave the drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire, you might feel as though you want to stay in contact with people in the recovery community.

- 12 Step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. These offer you weekly support sessions and ways to meet others who understand recovery.
- A home detox. If you relapse but don’t require another stay at rehab, you might be approved for a home alcohol or drug detox overseen by a local doctor. This enables you to have a medically assisted withdrawal process, with prescription drugs being delivered to your home.
