Who is rehab suitable for?

alcohol rehab in Derbyshire

In general, those with addiction are classified as consuming above a certain level of a substance – over 30 units a day – as well as displaying or experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. 

These individuals are more likely to struggle with home detoxes and their addiction condition may be affecting many aspects of their life very seriously.

Factors such as the individual’s career and financial situation may be impacted negatively. 

This individual may then suffer long-term health risks due to extended usage such as heart problems, severe depression, liver disease, and anxiety. 

With drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire, one of the key factors to the success of treatment is the individual’s drive to recover.

If an individual is not willing or ready to recover, then the process will be far less efficient and the individual may struggle for years. 

If you believe life in recovery will be difficult, then you are right. Living life without drugs and alcohol present a number of problems.

First, you must be able to return to normal life and then avoid or cope with ‘addiction triggers’ that cause cravings for drugs and alcohol.

The ASAM Criteria – understanding the need for drug & alcohol rehab in Derbyshire

Two people hugging

The American Society of Addiction Medicine developed this scale to assess the level of rehabilitation that an individual may require. 

This criterion is spread across 6 dimensions and allows for a biopsychosocial approach to private rehab.

This covers all main areas of private rehab and provides a more efficient framework for recovery. 

The dimensions are described as follows:

  • Acute intoxication and/or withdrawal potential – individual’s current and past experience and history with substance use
  • Biomedical conditions and complications – individual’s current health and medical history
  • Emotional, behavioural, or cognitive conditions and complications – individual’s mental health
  • Readiness to change – individual’s motivation to recover
  • Relapse, continued use, or continued problem potential – individual’s risk of relapse
  • Recovery/living environment – individual’s current living situation, includes people, places, and general situation

These dimensions form the basis for the telephone assessment conducted by Rehab 4 Addiction before an individual can be admitted to rehab.

Though it may seem like a lot of information, each factor is important to consider before entering the rehabilitation process.

Interventions and their use in addiction treatment


Often, and in the case of those with more serious addictions, it may be useful to consider the implementation of an intervention. 

Though these are stereotypically viewed in a large majority of cases, holding an intervention with the individual suffering from addiction may be beneficial.

With a standard intervention, the success rate is around 30% in terms of encouraging the individual to enter further rehabilitative care. 

However, with modern addiction treatments comes modern intervention techniques.

The CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach to Family Training) strategy of intervention was developed to improve the existing approach. 

Using CRAFT helps families affected by addiction understand more about rehabilitation and the disorder itself.

Including families in the process of helping to seek help, as well as helping others to understand the effects of addiction greatly improves relationships between those affected.

After being part of an intervention, the individual may then progress to different addiction treatment programmes. This will be a lifelong rehabilitation journey, and recovery is a long process.

The cost of private rehab

head to head

Often, individuals have a strong idea of what they think drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire will cost, and this is often distorted by what we see online or in the media. 

However, there are many options available. 

Here are some examples to help get a better idea of the cost of rehab in Derby and Derbyshire depending on a number of different factors:

  • For an initial 7-day detox in a rehabilitation centre, the cheapest option is to choose a multi-occupancy room rather than single occupancy. Multi-occupancy rooms can cost between £2,000 to £4,000, whereas opting to be accommodated alone can cost upwards of £5,000. 
  • For the recommended stay duration of 28-days in Derbyshire, multi-occupancy rooms can cost around £6,000 and single occupancy rooms can cost between £8,000 to £12,000.

Please bear in mind that these figures will differ for each centre and treatment programmes included and that the figures provided are used as a guide of averages.

Private vs. council-funded drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire – which should I choose?

Group holding leafs

As mentioned before, every individual will have different needs and therefore the choice between private and public rehabilitation should be considered carefully.

For example, choosing a council-funded rehabilitation programme in Derbyshire is advantageous as it is often funded by public health services such as the NHS (via the Royal Derby Hospital). 

However, due to this specific advantage, there is often high demand for these services.

Initially getting access to these programmes or starting rehabilitation in Derby and Derbyshire through this option can be a lengthy process. 

As an alternative, private rehabilitation can avoid these drawbacks. Although the cost is significantly higher than public care, this rehabilitation method has a host of other benefits.

This includes comfort, modern facilities, and personalisation within addiction treatment programmes.

Also as previously mentioned, the different treatment programmes available have a far greater variety when offered through rehabilitation centres in Derby rather than public rehabilitation service providers.

Diagnosing addiction – the DSM-5

Drinking coffee

To specifically gauge the severity of an individual’s addiction, the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) provides four different categories of behaviour to be identified. 

These are as follows:

  • Impaired control – the individual wants to stop usage but is unable to. The individual uses more of the substance than planned/intended
  • Social problems – the individual disregards responsibilities/relationships. The individual gives up activities they used to engage in. The individual becomes unable to complete activities for work or school etc.
  • Risky usage – the individual uses the substance in risky or dangerous situations. The individual continues usage despite arising problems
  • Physical dependence – the individual develops a tolerance and therefore requires more of the substance. The individual experiences withdrawal symptoms upon attempting to quit

From this, the level of substance use disorder can be assessed.

Displaying 2 or 3 symptoms is a mild substance use disorder.

Displaying 4 or 5 symptoms is a moderate substance use disorder.

Displaying 6 or more symptoms categorises the substance use disorder as severe.

This is also known as an addiction.

The higher severity of the addiction, the higher the intensity of treatment programmes will be in the future. 

This factor can be further explored by following the ASAM Criteria as detailed in the previous paragraphs. 

Detoxification at home for alcohol addiction

Diverse people in a supporting group session

This type of treatment is only suitable in specific circumstances. As mentioned before, the individual must be consuming a specific amount of alcohol before they are considered for this treatment in their Derbyshire home.

This is generally less than 30 units a day (any more is considered too severe to be treated at home). 

In most cases, the individual is sent Librium through the post and have regular meetings to discuss their progress with a registered supervisor.

The process of home detox is not to be confused with a self-detox, as a self-detox is unsupervised, unsafe, and therefore is not recommended by Rehab 4 Addiction in Derby and Derbyshire. 

For more information on whether this is suitable for you, please contact Rehab 4 Addiction today.

Risks of unmanaged withdrawal

With continued use, addiction will get worse, and the longer that this problem is left, the higher intensity of treatments will be required. 

A long-term problem with addiction can also have serious health issues, many of which are linked to major organs such as the lungs, heart, and brain.

Those with a long history of serious addiction are more likely to suffer an increased risk of strokes, heart attacks, and liver damage. 

Additionally, private and NHS rehabilitation becomes a longer process due to the increasing complexity of the issues that may be arising.

This is especially true for the mental health issues that are associated with addiction that often require a long-term commitment to treatment.

Rehabilitation for specific substances

The most common substances that Rehab 4 Addiction has experience helping those rehabilitate from are cocaine, heroin, and cannabis.

In the UK, and in Derby and Derbyshire, these are some of the most readily available drugs and therefore there are thousands of cases every year. 

Addiction treatment programmes for cocaine

Cocaine is a powerful drug that stimulates the mind, often causing intense emotions and feelings.

Long-term use can lead to debilitating mental health issues such as paranoia, insomnia, and anxiety. 

Going through detoxification as soon as possible is essential if the individual has a long history of cocaine addiction. 

This process will allow the individual to prepare for further rehabilitation in Derbyshire, involving meeting with staff to discuss their addiction history in order to create a specialised addiction treatment programme. 

Understanding both past usage and current usage is essential for creating an effective and efficient rehabilitation plan.

Addiction treatment programmes for heroin in Derbyshire 


Heroin, like cocaine, is a class A drug that is taken to achieve intense, short-term highs.

This makes it a substance that individuals are highly likely to seek more for immediate gratification. Long-term use can seriously impact the individual’s cognitive functioning.

Also, like cocaine, rehabilitation should be sought as soon as possible, as leaving an addiction to heroin can lead the disorder to rapidly deteriorate. 

Detoxification is another big factor in beginning treatment, but heroin can also require more counselling than other addictions due to the highly addictive nature of the substance.

Again, creating a flexible yet personalised plan with members of a drug and alcohol rehab centre team will help you to make the most efficient and effective recovery during your time in a centre. 

In this example, it may be more effective to focus on mental health as well as the physical health focus of detoxification.

Addiction treatment programmes for cannabis in Derbyshire

Cannabis is known as a more recreational drug, but its impacts can be just as damaging.

Cannabis affects the central nervous system and has been reported to disrupt normal perceptions, especially that of time. 

In all cases of addiction, it is important for the individual to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the issue
  • Consider their individual needs when it comes to recovery and rehabilitation
  • Create a personalised addiction treatment plan
  • And begin a fully supported rehabilitation programme. 

Although cannabis is not physically addictive, the effects of addiction can still occur with this substance, just as strongly as any other substance addiction.

Types of therapy experienced during rehabilitation in Derbyshire

However, this is simply a list of the most common treatments. More details can be found by contacting Rehab 4 Addiction.

The dual diagnosis approach – physical and mental health 


Though the treatment programmes offered through each NHS and private rehab centre or service provider will differ, there are some key features that individuals should be aware of.

In general, individuals should look for the dual diagnosis approach where possible. 

In some cases, individuals suffering from addiction may experience a variety of mental health issues, as well as the physical effects of addiction.

These mental health issues can include depression and bipolar disorder, as well as other disorders such as anxiety and paranoia. 

This approach values both physical and mental treatments equally and provides a flexible programme in which an individual can focus on these problems in a focussed manner. 

Rehabilitation programmes and relapse prevention planning

In addition, individuals are likely to take part in some form of relapse risk prevention training at NHS or private rehabs.

This is common across service providers due to the nature of aftercare and reducing the risk of returning to rehabilitation. 

This in itself can be a difficult process, as an individual is told to keep several important factors in mind.

Factors such as the longevity of the plan, slowness of progress, and the self-improvement nature of this plan should all be considered.

It often requires the individual to think clearly and deeply about their expectations of recovery.

Alternatives to residential rehabilitation in Derbyshire

In the large majority of cases, residential rehabilitation is the best option for addiction recovery due to the factors previously mentioned such as flexibility and personalisation. 

However, residential rehab is not always suitable for every individual, and Rehab 4 Addiction understands this.

In these cases, there are several options that can also be considered:

The need to let go

Diverse people in a support group

When you attend a rehab centre in Derbyshire, you must be willing to ‘let go’ of drugs and alcohol for good. This means letting go today, tomorrow and for the rest of your life.

The psychological attachment to drugs and alcohol is often the most difficult thing to let go of.

After all, it’s highly likely you’ve consumed alcohol or used drugs from an early age.

However, the disadvantages of continuing to drink alcohol or using drugs have now overtaken any possible benefits you may have derived from doing so.

In order to succeed, you must admit that you have a problem and that now is the time to make a life-changing decision to enter a rehab centre in Derbyshire.

The challenges you now face

Group therapy - teens - black and white

If you believe life in recovery will be difficult, then you are right. Living life without drugs and alcohol present a number of problems.

First, you must be able to return to normal life and then avoid or cope with ‘addiction triggers’ that cause cravings for drugs and alcohol.

Unfortunately, these ‘triggers’ often include real people as well as places and objects. These people may be close friends, colleagues or family members.

Secondly, you must be able to cope with internal triggers of addiction. These include emotions such as depression, anxiety, worry and stress.

When you experience these negative emotions, you need to be able to cope without resorting to drugs or alcohol.

These factors make it difficult for you to remain in recovery once you get there.

Some of these negative emotions may be attributed to:

  • Physical, sexual or verbal abuse suffered during childhood
  • Traumatic events occurring in adulthood
  • Stress, depression and anxiety
  • An eating disorder
  • Retirement or loss of a loved one
  • Divorce

To help you combat the above factors, Rehab 4 Addiction ensures you receive effective forms of therapy that will allow you to navigate your first few years in recovery without relapsing.

Although life will still present challenges, you will be better armed to face these challenges without resorting to drug or alcohol consumption.

How do we help you achieve this? By offering a number of proven therapy sessions such as CBT, psychotherapy and mindfulness during drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire.

Together, these therapy sessions allow you to build the mental resolve needed to remain in recovery both today, tomorrow and well into the future.
