How to support yourself and your loved one who has an addiction
If you have a loved one who is living with an addiction, it’s very likely to be taking its toll on the entire family.
Addiction is a disease that impacts everyone connected to the person with it.
There are things you can do to empower you to have some autonomy within the situation, to support family dynamics, all the while being positively influencing on your loved one who is unwell.
The CRAFT intervention offers a brilliant framework of skills and strategies you can adopt. These give you healthy ways of communicating with your loved one so that they feel supported without feeling forced or nagged.
You’ll learn how to set boundaries and to stop enabling behaviours.
Following this approach has guided people throughout the world to access rehab treatments and families to become better connected.

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.
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 in Dudley cost?
We recognise that many are put off considering drug and alcohol rehab as a viable option for alcohol or drug 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.

I have health insurance, will that pay for rehab in Dudley?
Some people have private health insurance and will be considering a residential rehab stay at a centre in Dudley.
If this is your situation, then check out your policy documents as it’s very likely that the cost of rehab will be covered by the insurance.
If this is the case, bear in mind that your yearly premiums will rise going forward. On the other hand, if the insurance is provided through your place of work, then you’ll likely be under oath to declare the addiction and rehab stay to your employers.

Will the NHS cover the cost of rehab in Dudley?
You might have heard that someone has gone to rehab and it was paid by the NHS or government. There is some funding available to those with addictions to go to a private rehab. In order to access this, there are a few things that need to happen:
- You need to be receiving treatment from local drug and alcohol services in Dudley already.
- You must be able to provide evidence that you’re following advice from your caseworker in the above-mentioned step.
- You must be determined and committed to quitting substances and be able to show this.
At this point, you can then apply for local funding from your local council. The staff at the council receives many applications for this and it’s up to staff who is granted the funding. Waiting lists, if you are accepted, are lengthy.

Inpatient and outpatient treatment for addiction treatment in Dudley
In Dudley as well as throughout the UK, addiction services are usually known as inpatient or outpatient.
A private rehab clinic where you stay for a period time will mean you become an inpatient as you stay in the establishment to receive treatments.
Drug and alcohol services funded by the government which are usually found in community spaces in towns and cities are outpatient services.
This is because you live at home, outside of the venue, but enter the centre for a few hours to receive treatment.
For help choosing between inpatient and outpatient rehab in Dudley, call our team today on 0800 326 5559
How long will I be at rehab in Dudley?
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.

Alcohol detox and alcohol rehab in Dudley
If you have an alcohol problem, then the best way to become sober is through entering a drug and alcohol rehab in Dudley for an alcohol detox.
You’ll first enter an alcohol detox period where you’ll be given a prescription drug such as Librium. This is to make withdrawal easier.
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:
- Delirium tremens (when you shake as alcohol leaves the body)
- Sickness and diarrhoea
- Sleep disruption
You’ll be overseen by staff 24/7 to ensure you’re safe and that your health is taken care of as the detox period can be dangerous.
Once through this, you begin psychological and emotional healing through various activities and therapies.
There will be regular meditation times where you’ll be guided to relax and experience your body in a healthy and grounding way. Psychological talking therapies will also be key in offering the tools to create healthy behaviours.

Heroin rehab in Dudley
When you have a heroin addiction, you’ll need to have both a 7-10 day heroin detox period and a stage where you work on the psychological healing of addiction.
Withdrawal symptoms are usually quite distressing for heroin users. They include:
- Deep pain in the bones and muscles.
- Shaking and sweating.
- Confusion and paranoia.

The detox will include a tapered course of prescription drugs like Subutex by an in-house doctor.

Staff will offer techniques that you begin to make regular healthy behaviours.
These are where you’ll harness your strength to overcome cravings.

What treatments will I receive at rehab in Dudley?
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 a rehab clinic, but the main ones to expect include:
- Family Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Individual Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET)
- Holistic Therapy (Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Equine Therapy, etc.)
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Addiction Counselling
- Contingency Management

Dual diagnosis at rehab in Dudley
On entering a drug and alcohol rehab in Dudley, you’ll be assessed. The rehab worker will ask questions about all aspects of your life and mental and physical health. It might come to light that you have a mental health condition as well as an alcohol or drug addiction. This is known as a dual diagnosis.
This is quite common for people in rehab. Why? Because those with mental health conditions sometimes turn to drugs and alcohol to try and feel better and this can turn into a habit. If people have an addiction, they can develop mental health problems due to how alcohol and drugs affect their brain chemistry.
If you get a dual diagnosis, the staff will support you in both areas. This improves your chances of recovering in a long-lasting way.

What is a relapse prevention plan?
A relapse prevention plan is offered as part of an aftercare programme from a drug and alcohol rehab. In Dudley, these might include ongoing outpatient support if you live in the local area, or online support if you live further away. It’s most likely to consist of group sessions with others you attended rehab with.
The relapse prevention plan also outlines various techniques you’ve learned to support you successfully through triggers. There will be thought and behavioural strategies you can use to help you make healthier choices.
As well as this, you’ll have clear steps on what to do should you lapse on substances.
Remember, lapse and relapse isn’t failure, it’s a space for learning.
Other addiction and recovery organisations in Dudley
