Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Dudley
If you are struggling to cope with a drug or alcohol addiction, you are not alone. According to a charity study, around 1 in 3 people in the UK are addicted to something.
Unfortunately, due to the complicated processes of finding treatment and the shame and embarrassment many feel when reaching out for help, a huge majority of these people will miss out on crucial addiction treatment, and their situation will only worsen.
Here at OK Rehab, we don’t want anyone who is dealing with an addiction to go without the proper care that they need, so we strive to support every individual who is struggling by finding and helping them self-admit into suitable treatment.
With our help, you could soon be on track to a full recovery in a drug and alcohol rehab in Dudley. Your recovery is possible, and with OK Rehab it could become reality.

When should I seek help?
An addiction can spiral out of control quicker than you sometimes expect. It is because of this, and the severe damage that can be done to your brain and body from continuous use of drugs and alcohol, that you should seek help as soon as you begin to see any signs of an addiction-forming in your life.
If you are concerned about a loved one’s substance use, the same applies, and you should reach out to us here at OK Rehab immediately before their condition has a chance to decline any further. We offer support and advice and also professional intervention services to those who need it.
For those in denial or those that believe that they have their situation ‘under control’, any time wasted is dangerous, and could even lead to death if professional help is not sought.
A drug and alcohol rehab in Dudley can be beneficial for anyone struggling with an addiction no matter the circumstances or seriousness of the addiction. Even if you think that you are not yet at a level of addiction that warrants medical attention, we recommend getting in contact with us anyway. We can take you through the various signs and stages of an addiction, and help you identify what it is you are experiencing, and how we can help you.
What are the signs of addiction?
For many individuals, not reaching out for help is caused by a simple lack of knowledge of addiction, instead of a direct denial of their situation.
Signs and symptoms of addiction can crop up in your life in various different ways, such as in your social life, your physical appearance, and your mental state. A few examples of the main signs to be on the lookout for are:
- Have there been changes in your appetite, physical appearance or sleeping pattern?
- Are you losing weight or not keeping up with hygiene?
- Have you noticed an increase in your tolerance for the substance you use, meaning you use a higher dose each time to get the same desired effect?
- Do you experience flu-like symptoms when you have withdrawn from the substance for a short period of time? This can include dizziness, nausea, shaking, headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, etc.
- Have you experienced any injured organs due to substance abuse?
- Has any relationship in your life (family, friend, partner, colleague) suffered due to your substance use?
- Have you abandoned certain responsibilities at home, work or school because of your substance use?
- Are you avoiding social situations?
- Do you have a secret stash of the substance hidden somewhere?
- Are you lying about the severity of your situation or denying you need help to anyone who offers it?
- Are you taking the substance as a way to cope with difficult emotions?
- Have you tried multiple times to quit but have not yet succeeded?
- Are you spending a lot of time thinking of when your next use of the substance will be?
- Are you more easily agitated, on-edge or angrier than usual?
- Have you experienced heightened symptoms of an existing mental illness such as depression or anxiety due to your substance use?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, what you are experiencing may indeed be a drug or alcohol addiction, and we suggest seeking help with OK Rehab immediately. We are ready and able to take you through what your next steps will look like, and can answer any questions you may have.
How much does rehab cost?
We recognise that many are put off considering drug and alcohol rehab as a viable option for addiction treatment due to the expected price tag that comes with it.
Whilst of course rehab does usually incur more costs than an at-home recovery would, we want to ensure you that this is for a reason, and any money spent is a crucial investment in your future self.
However, we also do not wish for anyone to miss out on vital addiction treatment because of this, so we strive to find you appropriate treatment no matter your circumstances. When you get in contact with us, feel free to mention any concerns you may have regarding the cost of rehab, and we can usually work around your budget.
How long will I be in rehab?
Every client’s journey in rehab is different, as no addiction or person is ever the same, and therefore no treatment plan ever is either.
For this reason, though the average amount of time needed for a rehab programme is around 28 days, some clients will need longer, and some will be able to leave rehab before this period is reached.
There is no shame if you are someone who requires a slightly longer time in rehab than the average, as usually, the factors that decide this are out of your control. We recommend focusing on the journey and the progress you will surely make along the way, rather than the finish line.
What treatments will I receive in rehab?
We know that blanket, one-size-fits-all treatments rarely work for every client, and we know that a recovery is more likely when treatment is instead personalised to suit the particular client’s needs.
Because of this, we work hard to create each individual we work with a bespoke treatment plan that will guide them through their time at rehab.
The details of this treatment plan are decided early on in the admissions process, by a few assessments of you and your addiction. In these simple evaluations, all information you provide us with remains 100% confidential, and the data is only used to help us narrow down your treatment options.
At this time, we cannot tell you exactly what treatments you will encounter during your stay at rehab, but the main ones to expect include: Family therapy, group therapy, individual therapy, art therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), addiction counselling, and contingency management.
What happens when I leave rehab?
Eventually, you will be leaving the care of your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Dudley.
Rest assured that you are not abandoned at this time, and our team will still be on hand and available through the 24/7 helpline if you need anything at all. You will receive a detailed aftercare plan which will include everything you have learnt throughout rehab, and this will be your guide to living a substance-free life back home.
If needed, additional appointments can be scheduled for you at your chosen clinic, for simple check-ins or for further treatment.
