Drug & Alcohol Rehab Rawtenstall

Find help and support for addiction via drug and alcohol rehab Rawtenstall

    Here at OK Rehab, we know better than anyone what it is like to battle a drug or alcohol addiction. We are a recovery advocate service created by people who are themselves currently living in recovery, so we understand what it takes to reach a substance-free life.

    We recognise how stressful searching for the right treatment can be, how isolating dealing with addiction alone is, and how daunting the prospect of rehabilitation is for so many.

    This is where we come in, to guide you to the right path to recovery, to be a helping hand throughout your journey, and to dispel any fears of rehab you may have.

    With our help, you could be on your way to recovery from your substance addiction in no time, whether that be in a drug and alcohol rehab in Rawtenstall, as an outpatient, or even at home with guidance from our team.

    So, call us today to find out more about what we can do for you and your recovery journey, on 0800 326 5559. You can also contact us by email, or through the online enquiry form.

    The admissions process

    The process of admission into a suitable drug and alcohol rehab in Rawtenstall does not have to be a confusing, lengthy, or stressful one.

    Here at OK Rehab, we strive to make our admissions process quick and simple, so that we can get to work placing you in the right treatment facility as soon as possible. To help us determine what methods of treatment and what facility will be beneficial to you, we perform a short assessment of you and your addiction.

    This assessment will likely take place over the phone, and will quickly evaluate your needs by gathering information about you such as: The length of time you have used for, the substance or multiple substances you have used in the past, the overall severity of your addiction, any existence of addiction in your family history, your personality, and any personal requirements for treatment you may have.

    This data – which remains completely confidential – helps us to realise your needs for addiction treatment, allowing us to narrow down the pool of options that are available to you.

    Once we have all the information we need and are happy with our finalised choices, they will be presented to you.

    Your time in rehab

    Though every client’s time in rehab will differ due to the nature of their addiction and their specific treatment plans, there is a basic layout to the process of rehab that you can expect to experience.

    Finalising your treatment plans


    As you enter your chosen rehabilitation centre, your treatment plans with us will need to be finalised. To ensure that your plan is the best it can be for your circumstances, there will be a secondary assessment to undergo which will be performed by a doctor on-site.

    This assessment will further evaluate aspects of yourself and your addiction, but will also delve deeper into the state of your mental and physical health.

    Undergoing this second assessment will make sure that you are receiving the right treatment and care throughout your rehab journey.

    A drug and alcohol detox

    If you have not undergone one already, at this stage of your rehabilitation you will experience a full drug or alcohol detox.

    Though for some this is the most nerve-wracking part of rehab, it is also the most important and necessary step on the path to recovery and must be done before any other treatment can begin.

    Your detox may take anywhere from a few days to a few months depending on the seriousness of your condition, the substances you have used and how long your addiction has been present. The average time for a drug or alcohol detox to be completed is around 1-2 weeks, but some symptoms of withdrawal can last up to a year in severe cases.

    During your detox, it is highly likely that you will experience a number of withdrawal symptoms as your body begins to adjust to the lack of your substance of choice. These side effects of withdrawing from substances can vary from mild to quite aggressive, again depending on the nature of your health and addiction.

    Some withdrawal symptoms to expect include shaking, nausea, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, mood swings, cravings for the substance you are dependent on, and, in rare cases, seizures, hallucinations, and delirium tremens.

    If necessary, a doctor on the premises can prescribe you the appropriate medication to ease any withdrawal symptoms you experience.

    Therapy and counselling

    After your detox, you will be able to begin the rest of your treatment, which will be mostly taken up by several forms of therapy and counselling.

    Though what you experience will be decided by the assessments during the admissions process, some commonly used treatments you can expect include:

    Through this multiple method of treatment, you can begin to come to terms with your addiction and become more comfortable speaking openly about it, whether that be in a group or simply on one with a therapist.

    You can also start to identify what root causes led you to substance use in the first place, learn how to avoid these triggers when you return home, discover new coping mechanisms to replace your drug or alcohol use, and much more. Overall, therapy and counselling will allow you to fully prepare for your substance-free life back home.



    Once you leave the care of your chosen rehab, it won’t mean the end of your recovery journey.

    You will still need to remain vigilant and on the lookout for any triggers and warning signs of a relapse approaching. Rest assured that we will remain with you throughout this stage of adjustment, to ensure you have all the support and guidance you need to succeed with a long-term recovery.

    We will also provide you with effective aftercare and relapse prevention plans that will be bespoke to you just like your treatment plan. Additional appointments can also be made for you at your chosen outpatient clinic or rehabilitation centre if they are needed for further treatment or simple check-ins.

    We will always only be one phone call away if you need our assistance once more.

    Don’t be afraid to contact us on 0800 326 5559 if you wish to speak to a member of the OK Rehab team after your time in rehab has ended.
