Data collected from the Office of National Statistics tells us there are over half a million problem drinkers living in England. The availability of alcohol and the relaxed laws relating to its sale has not helped the problem.
If you are living in Essex and are alcohol dependent, then know that help is at hand. Alcohol rehabs in Essex provide a variety of detox and therapy services. Clients come to Essex from all over the UK to receive drug and alcohol rehab services.
Clients sleep in comfy rooms just a few steps from the Essex rehab centre. They receive 24-hours a day medical care.
There are over 7,000 alcohol-related deaths in the UK each year. Thus, seeking out help is potentially a matter of life and death for some.
It is easy to deny that you have a problem with substance use. Some struggle for years because they are unwilling to seek out help.
The first step in recovery is admitting that you have a problem.
If you are in the Essex area and think you may need to go to drug or alcohol rehab, we can help. Going to rehab is one way to treat addiction. There are some great treatment centres in Essex which can help you get clean. We also provide treatment in primary care (home) settings.
Below are ten signs that it may be time to go to rehab. If some or all of these apply to you, then we are here to help:
The above is adopted from the DSM Criteria for Substance Use Disorders.
There are two broad types of treatment we typically recommend for substance use disorders in Essex. You can choose a programme for alcohol rehab or detox. It is typical to combine both.
Detox is solely concerned with the physical withdrawal symptoms occurring when you stop drinking alcohol or using certain drugs. In contrast, rehab takes place after detox, and it is concerned with the mental aspects of addiction.
Once the detox is complete, you may progress with other therapies. Every patient at our rehabs in Essex gets a treatment plan for their personal needs. This means treatment is tailored.
There are many benefits to going to rehab at one of our residential centres in Essex. We outline the main benefits below:
The price of drug and alcohol rehab varies depending upon the centres you select, the amount of time you stay at the rehab and whether you opt to sleep in a single or multiple occupancy room. Fortunately, there are a range of options.
If you opt for a 10-day detox with a single occupancy room, then prices range from £3,000-£6,000. Prices for a multi-occupancy room vary from £2,000-£4,000.
If you wish to stay at rehab for 28-days, then expect to pay around £8,000-£12,000 for a single occupancy room, or around £6,000 for a multi-occupancy room.
If you wish to undergo a home detox, then you may save money, but you will not be shielded from temptations. However, home detoxes do work for many people.
Expect to pay around £1,500 for a home detox. We may inform you of exact prices of rehabs in your local area. Please contact our helpline today for more information.
Treatment starts with an initial assessment. This will include a detailed medical check.
For the medical check, bring any medication you are currently taking. The doctors may prescribe medication to treat withdrawal symptoms. They will also answer any questions you have about the treatment process.
If you are not in a fit state to drive, the clinic will provide transport for you. Once you enter treatment in our drug rehabs, you will have access to medical care at all times.
After detox is complete, you have the option of rehab. This includes support groups, counselling and therapy.
Here are the main steps involved in the treatment process:
The first step is to contact our team. We assess you and explain your options. The main things they will ask about are:
Our experts will then create a tailored plan for your needs.
After the detox, rehab is there to treat the mental side of addiction. Rehab can include one-to-one and group therapy.
Some forms of therapy you benefit from at rehab include:
Rehab is said to help you to get clean, whilst rehab helps you stay clean too.
You will start the day with a healthy breakfast. Then you will have a meeting to discuss your progress. This may include exercises such as meditation.
Around noon, you will eat lunch. Then you start treatment, such as one-to-one therapy and group therapy. There may be other therapies too, such as art therapy and 12-step meetings. After this, you will have some free time.
After a healthy dinner and any necessary medication, it will be lights out. Sleep is vital for your body to return to health.
Treatment can last anything from 7 and 28 days. A detox can take as little as 7 days. The most common programmes in our Essex centres last between 14 days and 28 days. The recommended duration of treatment is to be determined during your assessment.
Detoxing at home may be recommended in certain cases, and the benefits of detox in a primary care (home) setting are well documented. However, for some, undergoing a detox in residential (inpatient) settings may be recommended.
In our rehabs in Essex, you will receive top-quality medical care.
The detox period is a delicate stage for the body. It is trying to get rid of toxins. The withdrawal symptoms can be highly uncomforting.

Good aftercare helps patients stay clean. We encourage those in recovery to go to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings in the Essex area.
Relapse is highest in the first few months after rehab. Between 50%-80% of people relapse during this time, depending upon the severity of the addiction. This compares to 65-95% for people who attempt to stop using drugs and alcohol without formal treatment.
