What treatments are on offer?
There are many forms of treatment on offer for addiction such as outpatient and inpatient care at a residential facility.
Inpatient rehabilitation requires you to move into a facility whilst you complete your treatment programme. By moving from your home to a local clinic you can focus on recovery and remove any triggers and distractions from your life. Choosing private treatment means you can take advantage of around the clock care provided by medical professionals.
Although outpatient care can be effective when managed correctly, it can be detrimental to both your physical and mental health if your addiction is severe. You could face temptation and negative influences that are found in your home environment, so we almost always recommend recovering in a residential clinic.
You could be on the way to beginning your recovery journey within as little as an hour after consulting a member of our team.
We work with rehab clinics in your local area that offer a wide range of evidence-based treatments. This means we will recommend forms of treatment that have been fully researched and have high success rates with former patients. Treatments used often include cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, and behavioural dialectical therapy.
Should I seek private treatment?
Within Norfolk, there are many forms of treatment such as community groups, as well as public and private options.
Whilst the National Health Service offers drug and alcohol addiction treatment you are usually placed on a waiting list that can last up to 12 months or longer. If your addiction is severe you may not have this time to wait.
Demand for free services is very high and there are sadly limited funds. By deciding to seek private care it means you can avoid long waiting lists and begin treatment as soon as possible.
What happens during your time at rehab?
There are many forms of treatment on offer during your time at rehab which can significantly change your thoughts, feelings, and actions towards drugs and alcohol.
Detoxification is usually the first process and can allow your body to expel any toxins present from substance abuse. A detox programme is monitored by medical professionals and can be vital to your success in rehab.
During this programme, you will likely experience unfortunate withdrawal symptoms as your body craves the substance it has become so dependent on. Whilst this can be very unpleasurable, you will have the support of dedicated staff ensuring your safety and comfort at all times. These members of staff can also prescribe medication if you need it at any point during your detox.
All of the clinics we partner with are Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected and we can issue reports to you upon request.
After detoxing you will be encouraged to work through your thoughts and feelings surrounding addiction through behavioural counselling and therapy. Some of the various therapies encouraged are group therapy, one-to-one therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy as well as holistic therapy with some clinics specialising in spiritual healing and wellness.
We also value the importance of schedule and routine, something many of our clients have been living without. We introduce this in the form of scheduled mealtimes and sleep times meaning you will be well-rested and prepared to face the day ahead. Routine can help you take back aspects of your life that have been lost to addiction. The team members at our partner clinics know exactly what care to provide to ensure you can make the most out of your time at the facility.
How much does rehab cost?
The price of rehab can vary depending on where your clinic is located, the treatments you are receiving, as well as factors such as the length of treatment. Programmes usually range from around £2500 for a detoxification programme and £5000 to £10,000 for full residential treatment.
Many clinics have state of the art facilities such as en-suite bedrooms, swimming pools, spas and saunas which can help you relax and care for yourself with compassion during this difficult time.
If you are feeling worried regarding the financial aspect of rehab, we are always available to talk you through your options. Some treatment programmes may be available through medical insurance or payment plans.
It is also important to think that in the long run, a stay at rehab may cost less than your addiction. Your addiction, especially if it is to drugs or alcohol, can be costing you more than you realise. It’s easy to think of the cost of rehab as a black and white issue but perhaps it is more helpful to think of the money saved by seeking treatment today. After all, can you afford to not get better?
Rehab is a commitment in terms of your time and money so it is important to consider if at this moment in your life you can devote yourself to recovery.
What should I expect from residential treatment?
The main aim of residential treatment is for trained professionals to help clients learn to cope and deal with their addiction without the need of using again. Detoxification helps to purge the body of all addictive substances and by doing this you can begin to heal both your body and mind.
Residential rehab allows you to get back to your true self and become healthier both physically and mentally. Recovery is a journey and not a sprint. It is important to acknowledge your feelings and talk through them with counsellors and therapists. These members of staff want to see you become sober and lead a life of abstinence, seeking joy from within yourself and not artificial sources.
Rehab has allowed many people to take back control of their lives and become happier individuals with goals and aims for success.
What are the advantages of residential treatment?
The primary advantage of residential treatment is that it allows medical supervision at all times which reduces any form of temptations that could be found at home.
Inpatient care offers support and guidance at all times meaning with the right routine and structure you have the best chance of permanently abstaining from substance use.
What happens after treatment ends?
You may be worried about what will happen when you conclude your treatment programme. We work with your clinic and help you set up plans such as relapse prevention that can significantly reduce the risk of you using substances again in the future.
It can feel intimidating thinking of returning home to the same place your addiction started or having to socialise with the same people who played a part in your substance abuse but this is where you have to put the things learned and gained at rehab into practice.
If you make the best use out of rehab you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge for how to effectively deal with cravings and any defeatist attitudes. Working with your support worker when you are still in treatment means you can help create a structure that will help you succeed outside of rehab.
Aftercare is vital in ensuring your success outside of treatment and there are many ways your facility can help put this into place. Your treatment will always include aftercare as part of your programme, and it can help your transition back into society a lot easier.
Family support is also very important, and this can be encouraged through family therapy opportunities. This sort of therapy can be a great way to repair damaged relationships that have been affected due to addiction. Your family and friends can be a great support network for you when you live back home. Many clinics will offer family therapy on a weekly outpatient basis for you to continue recovery from home.
If you don’t have relationships with family members there are other ways to seek support from a larger network. Attending groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous can be a great way to talk to others who can relate to your problems. Many self-help groups and community-based networks offer things like 12-step programmes which can help you break down the next steps in your recovery. Consistency is key and attending meetings weekly can help you succeed.
How long will I be in rehab?
The severity of your addiction and subsequent withdrawal will be two of the major factors that indicate how long you will spend in a treatment facility.
Usually, the longer you have been dependent on a substance, the longer it will take for you to heal your body and mind.
A typical outline of rehab includes:
- Your first day. During the first 24 hours of your stay, you will spend some time familiarising yourself with staff and the available facilities. You will also provide important information to the medical team about your addiction so they can begin to create a tailored plan for your treatment
- The next steps. After your plan has been created you will begin with detoxification which can last between one to two weeks. This is vital in ensuring you can move onto the next few months of various therapies
- Aftercare. After you have finished treatment you will be invited to attend therapy whether one-to-one or in a group setting. This can be very beneficial to keep you motivated upon your return home
Most commonly, residential treatment lasts around 28 to 30 days but can be shorter or longer depending on your needs, commitments, and financial status.
What can holistic treatments do?
Holistic treatments can be very beneficial to you when you are in recovery. These forms of therapy can ensure that your psychological and spiritual needs are met as well as your physical. Often these forms of treatment are more niche than traditional forms of therapy and can include things such as:
- Art and music therapy. This can allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings by creating pieces of art or music
- Acupuncture. This involves stimulating nerves under the skin and in the muscles, which helps to release endorphins. This can be a great treatment when recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction as it helps the brain feel happier and content
- Meditation and yoga. Both of these are great skills to learn and can allow you to create a sense of calmness and inner peace. Meditation can help reduce feelings of anxiety and cravings towards substances. This is a skill that can be extended to your life outside of a treatment clinic
