Rehab 4 Addiction

On This Page:  

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a disease that inflicts many thousands of people across the country. For instance, in 2018/19, there were 358,000 admissions to hospitals where the main reason was due to drinking alcohol.

Rehab 4 Addiction allows you to begin suitable treatment for substance use disorders and alcohol use disorder at an inpatient or outpatient clinic.  You typically begin treatment with a detox. Once detox is complete, therapy sessions begin.

Depending on the severity of your addiction, we may recommend residential rehab treatment. Unlike home-based treatment, full residential rehab means you are removed from your using environment. Temptations are thus avoided. Treatment is less likely to be marred by distractions when you chose to begin treatment at a residential clinic.

In short, residential rehabs in Cheshire offers you a safe environment to begin your recovery journey.

Rehab 4 Addiction facilitates a variety of treatment options across Cheshire in Warrington, Runcorn, Macclesfield, Widnes, Crewe, Chester, Nantwich, Northwich, Wilmslow and Congleton.

What are my rehab options in Cheshire?

There are many options for drug and alcohol rehab in Cheshire.  One potential option is residential rehab. This simply means you have to live in rehab for around three and eight weeks.  The other option is to partake in addiction treatment in Cheshire on an outpatient basis.  Both are effective, and the suitable option depends on the severity of your addiction.

Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

Accessing a private rehab may seem like an expensive option. However, private rehab may have benefits over statutory services.  For instance, you can begin rehab straight away. Council-funded drug & alcohol treatment in Cheshire may mean you may be subject to a ‘waiting list’ before you become ‘eligible’ for treatment.

Like all treatment programmes, private rehabs offer personalised and flexible programmes suitable for most situations. Private rehabs usually offer holistic therapeutical activities such as art therapy, acupuncture and music therapy. Finally, private rehabs offer a 12-month aftercare programme at no extra cost.

There are two main addiction treatment options in Cheshire: living in the rehab centre or combining day therapy with living in your usual habitat.

Private rehab clinics allow family members to visits you during your stay. This means you will not be shut off from your loved ones whilst you receive treatment.

However, you also benefit from being away from bad influences since you are away from your normal using environment.

Determining the type of addiction treatment you require

The type of addiction treatment programme you require depends on the severity of your addiction. Psychiatrists and other addiction specialists use guidelines outlined in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to determine the severity of your addiction. In the DSM-5, addiction is termed ‘Substance Use Disorder’ (SUD).

The severity of a SUD depends on the number of symptoms. Each symptom is outlined in the DMS-5.  We reproduce these symptoms below:

  1. Using more of a substance than planned, or using a substance for a longer interval than desired
  2. Inability to cut down despite desire to do so
  3. Spending a substantial amount of the day obtaining, using, or recovering from substance use
  4. Cravings or intense urges to use
  5. Repeated usage causes or contributes to an inability to meet important social, or professional obligations
  6. Persistent usage despite the user’s knowledge that it is causing frequent problems at work, school, or home
  7. Giving up or cutting back on important social, professional, or leisure activities because of use
  8. Using in physically hazardous situations, or usage causing physical or mental harm
  9. Persistent use despite the user’s awareness that the substance is causing or at least worsening a physical or mental problem
  10. Tolerance: needing to use increasing amounts of a substance to obtain its desired effects
  11. Withdrawal: a characteristic group of physical effects or symptoms that emerge as the amount of substance in the body decreases

If you present two or three symptoms, this would mean you suffer from a mild SUD.  Four or five symptoms would suggest you suffer from a moderate SUD. Six or more symptoms indicate a severe SUD. Those experiencing six or more symptoms are considered to be experiencing ‘addiction’ in the clinical sense of the word.

An addiction expert will diagnose the severity of your SUD with reference to the DSM-5. This will assist him or her in planning an effective treatment programme.   Residential rehab is generally recommended for those experiencing severe SUDs, whilst outpatient treatment may be more suitable where the SUD is classified as mild-to-moderate.  Outpatient treatment typically runs over several months, or even years in some cases.  It is also worth mentioning that residential rehab, to be effective, must be followed up with a robust and long-term outpatient treatment programme.

What should I look for in a Cheshire rehab?

It isn’t easy to come to the decision that you need help for addiction. It can be hard to understand options, but you will want to make sure you choose the right rehab in Cheshire.

It’s important to choose a rehab that is right for your needs. But selecting the one that is suitable for your needs is not always easy. This is maybe the case if you have not been to rehab before.

One factor in choosing rehab is the location. The rehab should be away from the area where you live, but close enough for friends and family to visit.

You need to find rehab you can afford too. That’s where we can help. Also, our rehabs are Care Quality Commission approved, so you will have a competent level of care.

What can I expect from inpatient rehab?

One way to learn is to contact our helpline. The treatment process in Cheshire will be discussed with you and, if desired, members of your family too.

When you begin to detox, you may be given medications. These help to ease cravings.  This lets you begin detox safely. Also, you will benefit from therapy sessions to help you address underlying mental issues that make you turn to drugs or alcohol.

You will be coupled with a case manager. This person will assist you with setting goals and working through your therapy.

You will also be scheduled for holistic therapy treatments which may include yoga, reiki and massage.

How do therapy sessions in residential rehab work?

During rehab, you spend time with therapists. These people are also here to help once you start aftercare sessions. Staying at drug & alcohol rehab in Cheshire means you benefit from the below therapies:

Therapies in Cheshire help break the cycle of addiction. This helps you to cope with life’s problems and reduces the odds of you turning to drug or alcohol use.

You will be asked to take part in therapy sessions throughout the day. Therapy helps you to live life on your own terms. The aim of therapy is to help you cope with your issues in healthier ways. You will also gain the coping skills to help you with this aim.

Therapies are made up of group and one-to-one sessions. Group therapy gives you the skills to learn from others’ past experience. One-to-one therapy lets you talk about your own problems with a therapist privately.

How long does rehab last?

Drug rehab varies in length because it is designed around each person’s needs. When you begin your telephone assessment prior to rehab in Cheshire, our admissions coordinator will ask you a series of questions. These questions are about the nature of your addiction. The answers you give help us to find a suitable programme length.

A typical alcohol detox takes no longer than five to seven days to complete. Opiate detox may take up to 14-21 days to complete. Medicated detox follows NICE Guidelines. These treatments include cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy and modern psychotherapy.

Once detox is over, you will begin rehab. Rehab aims to treat the mental aspect of addiction.

Rehab clinics we work within Cheshire offer effective therapies that help to improve your mental well-being. This approach helps you to avoid relapse.

Poor mental health is a factor that may lead to early relapse. Tackling poor mental health is important for your long term sobriety. To fully take advantage of this, we believe benefit from staying in rehab for at 28 days.

How much does rehab cost?

Outpatient rehab is almost always less costly than residential rehab. Also, the cost of rehab will vary depending upon location. Some rehabs are considered ‘luxury’ and will charge more money to gain access to their services.

The quality of treatment in Cheshire is fairly uniform across rehab clinics. Thus, it’s easy to sacrifice non-essentials in order to begin rehab you can afford.

The length of treatment also influences rehab costs. If you wish to spend 2-3 months inside a rehab clinic, this will cost more than a 7-day detox. For most people, 28-days is the most suitable amount of time to spend in rehab.

The average cost of rehab is £1,000 and £1,500 per week. This includes the cost of therapies, detox services, boarding, and meals.

Luxury rehab includes extras not offered at standard rehabs. The cost can be between £10,000 and £15,000 per week. Whatever rehab you end up selecting, the cost should be seen as an investment in your long term mental health.

Questions to ask when looking for a rehab

Which problems do rehab centres in Cheshire treat?

Addiction often leads to a range of health problems. These problems may be mental or physical. When you stop using drugs and alcohol, you improve every aspect of your health. We aim to treat common mental problems such as anxiety, PTSD, depression and others.

How long does rehab last for?

The suggested duration of your alcohol or drug rehab would depend on many factors. These typically include your health conditions, fitness level, age, gender, and severity of the addiction. In most cases, you may be advised to spend at least 4 weeks in one of our rehab centres. This duration is sufficient to help your body detox and recover.

Where is the rehab centre?

Most of our rehabs are located in desirable areas like the city centre, beachfront regions, or suburbs. Thus, you can choose an ideal option that is near your neighbourhood or in a place that meets your personal preferences. Since each centre has its own pros and cons, make sure to consult our staff before making a decision.

Is insurance accepted?

The answer will depend on your chosen services and rehabs in Cheshire. Some insurance plans are accepted, while others are not. This depends on many factors and conditions. It’s true that some fund rehab via insurance, so it’s always worth making enquiries just in case you are covered.

Back to top

What do I do about family, work and finances during rehab?

Try to organise work and family commitments before rehab begins. This allows you to begin treatment in Cheshire without constant worry. Inpatient rehab usually takes around 28 days to complete. Thus, make sure you can re-arrange these commitments for this time period.

This may mean looking for someone to care for your children if you have them. You should let your work know that you will need to take time off as holidays. This is important only if your employer is not aware of your situation.

Back to top

What do I need to bring to rehab?

When you are ready for rehab, you only really need to bring along basic items. This includes clothing, ID, medications, and personal hygiene products. There is no need to bring along expensive iPads and laptops. These items may only distract you when you begin your rehab in Cheshire.  Instead, bring a book and photos of loved ones.

Once you have chosen a rehab, our team will run through all the essential items that are required for that rehab in Cheshire.

Back to top

Building Relationships in Rehab

It can seem like a challenge going to rehab. This may be one of the most difficult periods for you. You must remember that you will not be alone. Other patients will be there alongside you. Many of these people will become true lifelong friends.

Therapy sessions may also involve loved ones. This helps you to rebuild broken relationships. Loneliness can be a trigger for relapse. Relationships can be a form of support.

Once you have left our rehab, that there is a support network when you need it. Rehab in Cheshire is all about nurturing healthy relationships. This could be with yourself as well as with others.

Is going to rehab in Cheshire the only way to stop drinking?

Going to rehab helps you build strength in your recovery. However, going to rehab is not the only way to stop drinking.  You can attempt to stop yourself.

This is inadvisable if you begin to suffer physical withdrawal symptoms, since these symptoms are potentially deadline, and may require immediate hospitalisation.

If you feel you may stop drinking without the medical attention you would receive at rehab, it’s important to have clear goals. The first step is to be aware and to want to make a change.

With small steps, you can achieve a healthier and alcohol-free routine.  One way to articulate these goals is to join a 12-step group such as Alcoholics Anonymous. You can find these groups in Cheshire by clicking here.

What sort of addictions do we treat in Cheshire?

Rehabs in Cheshire are able to treat a wide range of addictions. Below, we list each drug type you may begin rehab treatment for in Cheshire. Treatment for physically addictive drugs begins with a detox. Here, you may be given medications to help ease withdrawals. Rehabs are also set up to treat co-occurring mental health issues.

The different type of substances we can help you overcome your addiction to include:

1. Heroin

Those addicted to heroin may benefit from substitution drugs during detox. This helps ease withdrawal symptoms. These drugs may include slow-acting opioids such as hydrocodone or Subutex. The detox is then followed by a four-week long rehab programme.

2. Cocaine

Cocaine is a psychologically addictive drug. There is no substitution medication to help the ceasation process. Therapies help you through the rehab process. Therapies are mostly behavioural in nature.  Therapies help to stop you from relapsing when you do go back to your home.

3. Alcohol

Alcoholism is a common addiction. In fact, it is likely that alcoholism is the most common form of addiction in the UK. We help you select rehabs offering suitable alcoholism treatment. Alcoholism is a physically addictive substance. You will be given medications to help stop dangerous withdrawals.

4. Cannabis

Cannabis addiction may not be considered serious by some. Long term cannabis use increases the risk of psychosis and poor mental health. We believe that going to rehab for cannabis addiction is important. You may suffer from sleep problems or mood swings because of your cannabis use.

5. Benzos

These drugs are prescribed to treat anxiety. Benzos are highly addictive. Your GP will recommend you do not take Benzo for more a limited period of time. This is because of their abuse potential. Benos are physically addictive. To safely detox off benzos, you will taper off them slowly.  Substitution drugs, such as slower-acting benzos, may be prescribed during your detox.

Back to top

How do I prepare for withdrawal symptoms in rehab?

Addiction is often painful, and cravings and withdrawals can be too much to take. It is vital to prepare for this situation. You can begin by learning common withdrawal signs.

These signs and symptoms may include nausea, diarrhea, muscle aches, sweating, insomnia, and seizures amongst other signs.

After your admission into rehab, you may be given medications to help you through this painful time. For alcohol use disorders, you may be given anti-craving drugs.

Warm or cool baths help you cool down. This is helpful if you are chilled or feverish. Drinking cool water may also help. You can find a peer who is having the same symptoms as you and work with them to help you both move through the process.

Getting better is not an easy process. The rehab process deals with many emotions and comfort. It takes strength and sheer grit. In the end, it is worth it to come out on the other side stronger.

Back to top

What medications can help in rehab?

Sometimes, withdrawals can be painful, even deadly. During your rehab, medical staff are on hand to help you during this time. Medicated drugs may be given to you by a doctor.

These drugs are used for the treatment of addiction at Cheshire rehabs. Each drug is used for a specific type of addiction. Click here for more information.

Aftercare support in Cheshire

Before you leave rehab, a full assessment is carried out. This makes sure you do not return home before you are ready to do so. An aftercare plan helps you to avoid relapse once you are back home.

We believe your treatment in Cheshire is the first step towards your long-term goals. We help you join local support groups taking place in your local area.

Once the rehab process is complete, you may access aftercare services. This means rehabs you to benefit from therapy on a long term basis.

Some will find it hard to adjust to life outside rehab. Aftercare helps to make the return to life outside rehab easier. You benefit from in-person aftercare therapy and telephone support.

Back to top

What is the success rate of rehab in Cheshire?

The National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) releases annual statistics reporting on the effectiveness of addiction treatment for a variety of drugs. Success rates vary between the drug you are addicted to. “Success” is defined as “successfully completing treatment”.

The success rate for completing an outpatient treatment programme is about 30% for those addicted to opioids such as heroin. The average time in treatment for opiate clients was nearly three years.

Alcohol treatment is has a higher success rate, with around 60% completing treatment successfully. The average time in treatment for alcoholism clients is around 200 days.

This data tells us attending an alcohol rehab is not a ‘cure’ for alcoholism. It is doubtful such a ‘cure’ exists. However, if you are serious about getting better, and you are committed to change, then going to alcohol rehab is certainly something you should consider.

Another study found that early alcohol rehabilitation reduces the risk of hospital readmission, alcohol relapse, and death.  This study recommended alcohol rehab should be considered for those admitted to hospital with alcohol-related illnesses such as liver cirrhosis.
