    Methods of Intervention in Alcoholism

    When addiction hits a family, its ripple effects are devastating to everyone emotionally attached.

    Sadly, it’s an illness that despite its obvious negative effects fools the person into thinking that they are OK. Denial can be really hard to witness.

    It’s likely that you’ll want your loved one to enter a drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster, but if you keep bringing it up when they aren’t ready, this is likely to become a touchy area.

    In these situations, using an intervention such as the CRAFT method can be really helpful.

    This offers you a framework of ideas and strategies to use when communicating with your loved one. It focuses on their healthy behaviours and creates more positive dynamics. It’s also a method that empowers and uplifts you as the carer.

    How to know you have an addiction

    A meeting with a therapist

    If you’re reading this then it’s probable you’re aware that the way you use substances is problematic. Denial, though, is very common for alcohol and drug users.

    There are some obvious things that make addiction clear, though. Answering “yes” to the following questions demonstrates that you probably have an addiction.

    1. Does drinking or taking drugs make you feel guilty?
    2. When people talk about your habit, does it wind you up?
    3. Has “cutting down” on the substance ever entered your mind?
    4. When you wake up, do you need drink or drugs to approach the day?

    How Has Addiction Affected Your Physical Health?

    Alcohol and drug poisoning are fatal to your health. Alcohol is linked to more than sixty medical conditions, including liver cancer, mouth cancer, and cirrhosis of the liver.

    Meanwhile, drug poisoning was the recorded cause for 18,053 hospital admissions in recent years.

    Addictions are also associated with strokes and heart attacks, which are serious long-threatening health issues. By going to your local drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster, the damage to your health will be prevented and you can take the first step towards a healthier life.

    How Has Addiction Affected Your Mental Health?


    Your mental health has also suffered due to your addiction, and this is just as important to heal as your physical health. Addictions can worsen any pre-existing mental disorders, such as stress, anxiety, or depression.

    However, these mental disorders are also sometimes the reason someone has started to drink or take drugs. If this is the case, you’re trapped in a loop of substance abuse worsening your mental disorder, but your mental disorder is making you to drink or take drugs even more.

    However, you don’t have to be stuck in this cycle forever. Going to drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster will introduce you to methods that can help you to manage these mental disorders without relying on drugs or alcohol.

    As well as this, your mental health may be suffering due to the relationships in your life being damaged due to your addiction. While struggling with an addiction may feel like something you’re going through alone, the people around you are being affected too.

    Addictions can lead to mood swings and increased temper, so it’s possible that you lash out and argue frequently.

    You may have also lied to your friends and family about how much of these substances you consume in a day, and it’s also likely that you have withdrawn from socialising with them. This behaviour can put a strain on these relationships.

    When the relationships in your life are broken like this, it’s likely that you may experience further stress or depression.

    By going to drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster, you’ll be able to free yourself from your addiction to substances. Your health will recover (both physical and mental), and you’ll be in a stronger position to mend the relationships in your life.

    Alcohol and drug detox at rehab in Doncaster

    Whether we find the right treatment for you at a local NHS hospital or a private rehab clinic, you can be sure of being surrounded by caring professionals who will be following the guidelines set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

    The initial stage of your time at drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster will be a ten-day-long detoxification programme.

    Detox is when you remove these substances from your system, but suddenly stopping like this can cause withdrawal symptoms.

    Withdrawal symptoms can range from mild to severe, but this will depend on how long you have been addicted, which substance your body has relied on, and how much you take in a day.

    The mild symptoms can include:

    • Changes in appetite
    • Mood swings
    • Fatigue
    • Irritability
    • Nausea
    • Muscle ache
    • Restlessness
    • Congestion

    The more severe symptoms that you might experience include:

    There’s no way to predict which symptoms you’ll go through, or how mild or severe they will be.

    Therefore, you’ll undergo your alcohol or drug detox programme under the supervision of a medical professional who can monitor your progress and any pain you might be experiencing.

    Under their watchful and supportive eye, your detox will be as safe, painless, and successful as possible.

    Make sure that your detox is safe and effective with the help of a rehab in Doncaster – call our team today on 0800 326 5559

    How much will I spend to stay at a rehab centre in Doncaster?

    The price you pay covers treatments from specialist addiction workers, the best alcohol and drug addiction treatments on offer in the UK, as well as boarding and delicious food from an in-house chef.

    Health insurance and rehab in Doncaster

    Insurance policy paperwork

    If you have health insurance, it will probably cover the cost of a stay at rehab in Doncaster.

    Reading your policy will clarify this.

    What you need to be aware of is that if your health insurance is through your place of work, then you’ll have to notify the relevant member of staff that you have an addiction and are accessing rehab through the policy.

    If you have taken out the policy privately, then you’ll understand that the overall cost of insurance will increase in the future when you claim on it.

    For help accessing alcohol and drug addiction treatment via health insurance, talk to our experts on 0800 326 5559

    Will the NHS cover the cost of rehab in Doncaster?

    There is some government funding to go to rehab. It’s highly sought after meaning that there are many applicants.

    If you apply for it, even with a brilliant application, it can be difficult to be granted the funding which is limited.

    To be eligible, you need to be in regular contact and receiving treatment from local drug and alcohol services.

    It must be very clear how much effort you’re putting into becoming abstinent.

    Once you’re there, you apply for the funding with this evidence and it will be up to the local council who receives the money for private treatment.

    How long does a course of treatment last at rehab in Doncaster?

    When you enter a drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster, you’ll most likely stay for around 28 days. This is the recommended amount of time to begin to develop new strategies to face triggers and cravings positively.

    You’ll also get through the most difficult early cravings with support from staff and others in your situation.

    It’s important to immerse yourself and to fully participate in the programme and treatments to get the most from it.

    Sobriety is there for you if you’re willing to do what it takes. It’s challenging, but it is possible.

    Comparing NHS services and private clinics in Doncaster


    NHS services are those that are funded by the government and available to all people in the community who have an addiction.

    People in contact with services will be at various stages of their addiction journey.

    Some could be in the experimental stage (this is especially the case where teenagers access services), whereas others may have severe addictions which have existed for decades.

    NHS services offer harm reduction advice, needle exchanges, group sessions, and some one-to-one support.

    Private clinics are comfortable buildings with a certain amount of bedrooms available to those who want to enter a substance-free environment and become sober.

    Staff are on-site 24/7.

    There are alcohol and drug detox treatments available and a huge range of psychological, alternative, and 12 Step approaches in place. Residents immerse in a programme of treatment that will have them leaving rehab sober.

    An aftercare plan is created for them to follow to help them remain sober post-rehab.

    For help choosing between NHS services and private addiction treatment in Doncaster, call our team today on 0800 326 5559

    What is meant by inpatient and outpatient treatment?

    Group Therapy session

    Addiction services usually take one of two formats. Either you’ll enter the rehabilitation centre and stay overnight for treatment, or you won’t.

    Where you stay overnight for any length of time, you’re considered an inpatient. Entering a private drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster to stay as a resident would make you an inpatient.

    If you were to become a service user at a local drug and alcohol service where you go to the clinic at particular times of the week while living at home, then you’re considered an outpatient.

    Not sure whether inpatient or outpatient care is more suitable for your needs? Talk it over with our team on 0800 326 5559

    Alcohol detox and alcohol rehab in Doncaster

    If you have an alcohol addiction, then there will be two parts to your residential rehab stay: alcohol detox and psychological therapies.

    The detox lasts up to 10 days and begins as soon as you enter rehab.

    You’ll be given the prescription drug Librium, which will ease alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

    Therapies and alternative activities will take place every day so that you learn and begin regularly practising the strategies which will help you overcome addictive behaviours.

    Cocaine rehab in Doncaster

    When you enter a drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster for cocaine or crack cocaine addiction, then you’ll be focused on psychological and emotional healing.

    Cocaine detox is not needed, as cocaine is not physically addictive.

    You’ll be taught how to understand where cravings come from, whether this is an internal or external influence, and how to face these in a healthy way. There will be group work where you share experiences and connect to others.

    It’s also likely that you’ll have support around mental health-related issues such as anxiety which is common in cocaine users.

    Heroin rehab in Doncaster

    For heroin users, there are two parts to the treatment: physical heroin detox and psychological healing.

    The detox period is where you’ll take prescription drugs such as Subutex to see you through the withdrawal period, which is commonly very uncomfortable for heroin users. This lasts around 7-10 days.

    After this, your treatment programme will focus on psychological healing.

    There will be therapies to help you unravel your emotions and drives behind using heroin.

    Holistic therapies will support you to find a peaceful way of being in the moment without thinking you need to return to the substance.

    Cannabis rehab in Doncaster

    You can go to rehab in Doncaster for cannabis use.

    This substance can cause psychoactive effects and addiction when THC strains are used. People often become anxious, depressed, and reclusive where cannabis is smoked regularly.

    Rehab will focus on psychological healin, as cannabis detox is not needed.

    You’ll become acquainted with the 12 Step approach which will enable you to accept how addiction has taken control of you.

    It will also reveal how putting your faith in something beyond you in order to heal is really effective. It might be God, it could be the universe, an approach, or group of people; whatever “higher power” means to you.

    Treatment at rehab in Doncaster

    AA meeting

    After you have completed the first stage of your time at drug and alcohol rehab in Doncaster, you will continue your recovery with therapeutic treatments and addiction counselling.

    This will involve talking to a therapist about your personal life and your addiction to find out why you first turned to alcohol or drugs.

    You’ll also explore your past behaviour and decisions while being introduced to positive coping mechanisms and progressive methods of thinking that will enable you to face the challenges that made you start drinking or taking drugs.

    Alcohol and drug addictions don’t just suddenly happen, but are the result of struggling to cope with challenges (such as grief, trauma, life-changing injuries, or mental disorders), so you will talk with your therapist to determine how these affected you.

    Your therapist will help you to understand that substances weren’t helping, and they can introduce you to ways of thinking that will help.

    Your therapist will decide which therapeutic treatments would be more beneficial for you, but the most common therapies used to help with recovery from addiction are:

    Through your personalised therapeutic treatments, you’ll realise how your thoughts and decisions have a ripple effect in your daily life. Your therapist will help you be more flexible to change with positive behaviours and decision-making.

    With this, you won’t feel the impulse to turn to alcohol or drugs when faced with challenges.

    What a dual diagnosis means for you

    A man in a therapy session looking stressed

    If you have a mental health condition as well as an addiction, then you might hear the term “dual diagnosis”.

    This simply means you have two conditions at the same time. It’s not uncommon in the addiction field.

    People with addictions develop mental health problems because of how substances upset bodily systems.

    Those with mental health conditions sometimes turn to substances to try and ease symptoms and this can lead to addiction.

    At rehab, you’ll be treated for both. Staff understand how closely linked the two are and know that it’s important to be able to discuss how you and your behaviours are affected.

    The plan will also include what to do in the immediate moment and strategies you’ve been using at rehab to conquer difficult cravings.
