In the years 2020 to 2021, it was reported that there were over 49.9 thousand drug offences recorded by the police in London.
These figures are worryingly high. which is why we urge individuals struggling with drug and alcohol issues to reach out for professional help.

Intervention refers to a traditional confrontation in which family and friends gather with an individual to discuss their addiction and treatment options.
If you know someone struggling with addiction, it can be incredibly saddening to watch.
You may feel helpless and are reluctant to act for fear of rejection.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we want to help.
We offer unrivalled support for family and friends affected by drug and alcohol abuse.
With our years of expertise, we can help you source a local professional interventionist.
A professional interventionist is always recommended as they can help you to structure a safe conversation.
Interventions can be difficult, but with professional help you and your family can explain to your loved one what treatment options are available and why you believe they should enter rehab.
When executed correctly, interventions are a great way of helping someone enter rehab.
Most people living with substance use disorder are in denial about their usage.
They often believe they have it under control and can stop any time they want.
By working with a professional, your intervention will be as effective as possible and safe at all times.
Your interventionist will talk through various approaches and also want to know what methods you have tried in the past.
From here, they can recommend alternate approaches if they believe an intervention is unlikely to work.
CRAFT stands for Community Reinforcement and Family Training.
CRAFT strengthens the family unit through positive reinforcement, encouraging your loved one to stop consuming drugs or alcohol.
If your loved one continues to consume drugs or alcohol, you are advised to ignore their behaviour.
Whilst this can be an incredibly difficult situation to witness, it helps your loved one to re-evaluate their addictive behaviour and witness the effects it has on their friends and family.
CRAFT has been used for many years and has proven many times to deliver effective change for families.
Acknowledging your addiction can be very hard.
Denial is a very common state when you are in the clutches of addiction.
Recognising your problem is a huge achievement, and the next step is seeking professional help.
If you are addicted to alcohol, an addiction specialist will likely screen your consumption through a questionnaire called CAGE.
The questions are as follows:
If you associate with two or more of the above questions, it is imperative you continue to seek professional help through an addiction programme.
We hope that this list can help you to see the severity of your drug or alcohol consumption more clearly.
Read the following and answer as honestly as possible:
If you are ready to receive immediate support for your substance consumption, reach out to our team today.
We have years of experience in supporting individuals with substance use disorder and can help to source an effective treatment facility in Hounslow.
The cost of rehab in Hounslow varies depending on each client.
Some people avoid private rehab due to misconceptions that it is wildly expensive and for celebrities only.
Whilst it is true that some luxury programmes begin priced at around £70,000 for a month-long stay, at Rehab 4 Addiction, we help to source affordable treatment that suits our clients and their budget.
As an estimate, residential rehab typically costs anywhere between £500 to £1,000 per week.
Though this of course depends on the severity of your addiction, the location you choose, your budget, any luxury amenities you desire and other factors that make your situation unique.
Some facilities charge £14,000 for a 28-day stay, depending on the type of services they provide.
With our help, we can help you to source luxury clinics with fantastic amenities suited to your every need.
Once you have contacted our team, we can begin our pre-admission assessment.
This helps us to assess your needs and provide bespoke treatment at all times.
In the UK, many rehab clinics work directly with private healthcare insurance providers meaning the entire cost of your treatment programme is covered through your policy.
However, if your health insurance is provided through your line of employment, you may be expected to disclose to your employer information about your addiction in order for the policy to be effective.
For some potential clients, this can be incredibly difficult and stressful.
It could make a return to work very difficult or cause anxiety about the future of their job to surface.
For these reasons, some people choose to fund their programmes alone or ask family for financial help.
If you pay for your own health insurance, you will most likely be able to benefit from the cost of your programme being covered.
The terms and conditions of your policy may require you to share information about your addiction, making your insurance price rise in the following years.
As previously stated, many private clinics accept insurance.
For more information on if your treatment is likely to be covered by your health insurance, we recommend contacting your provider directly and reading the terms and conditions.
If your health insurance covers your treatment cost, a member of our team can then help to source an appropriate programme for you.
This is because the NHS offers limited free residential places to prospective patients.
To be considered for a residential place on behalf of the NHS you are required to compile evidence of your funding application to your local council.
For someone with a severe addiction, this can feel like a mammoth task.
It also takes a long time to process this application.
For some in need of immediate help, this can make their addiction worsen very quickly.
Before funding is granted you are also required to share evidence of a previous enquiry with a statutory body such as the Westminster Drug Project.
Whilst treatment is free it often makes patients feel as though they are jumping through many hoops before securing a residential place.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we believe treatment should be immediate.
Whilst everyone has the right to seek free healthcare through the NHS, they often make it very tricky to secure a placement.
Treatment at your chosen clinic will depend on your individual circumstances.
However, most people tend to complete a 28-day stay.
Whilst this may seem very specific, it has been proven to be a beneficial amount of time for clients to overcome all dependencies and work on creating new, healthy coping mechanisms.
A major benefit to private treatment is that you can reside in a residential facility anywhere between a week to a year depending on your programme selection and your needs.
Some people choose to enter rehab for a detox programme only.
These programmes last around 7 to 10 days but can be shorter.
After this, clients will return home and continue to attend therapy sessions.
Others choose a complete programme that is made up of both a detoxification programme and continued therapy under one roof.
This is the recommended treatment option for those who are struggling with their physical and mental health as a result of prolonged substance abuse.
For a more accurate estimate of your programme length at a drug and alcohol rehab in Hounslow, call our team today on 0800 140 4690.
The biggest -and most obvious- difference between NHS treatment and private treatment is that NHS treatment is free.
Whilst this seems like a major benefit, as stated above, it includes lots of obstacles for clients to be able to access it.
Whilst private treatment includes a fee, this fee helps to provide you with a personalised programme and bespoke care 24 hours a day.
Private treatment includes ease of access to inpatient facilities as well as swift admission, helping you to walk one step closer to sobriety.
Through this form of treatment, you can also enjoy access to a single or dual occupancy room, the choice is yours.
Further benefits to private treatment are as follows:
Detoxification refers to the medical process in which toxins from substance abuse are removed from the body in a supervised and safe environment.
The aim is to help clients overcome all physical dependencies.
Detox programmes are offered at a variety of rehab clinics in Hounslow, helping you to treat your addiction safely.
They are usually the first step in your programme before you move on to therapy.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we advise clients to begin their detoxification programme in a residential facility so that their progress can be monitored and milestones recorded.
However, we do understand that this isn’t always an option for everyone and therefore offer various treatment programmes.
For example, we can also help you to find an effective home detox programme.
Home detoxes are particularly popular for those with mild substance use disorders and who don’t struggle with psychological side effects or prolonged abuse.
During an alcohol home detox programme, Librium is sent to the home address of the client.
Detoxes are an undeniably challenging part of rehabilitation.
However, once complete, you can begin therapy which will help you focus on healing your mind.
If you attempt to detox at home without medical guidance or support, you could be placing your life at risk.
Untreated withdrawal symptoms can be fatal, so it is for this reason we do not recommend self-detoxes.
It is usually snorted through the nose or rubbed into the gums of the mouth.
When consumed it makes you feel confident, chatty, and euphoric; however, the effects of cocaine are very short-lived.
Cocaine consumption can lead to an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
If you are struggling with cocaine addiction, reach out to us today.
As cocaine isn’t physically addictive, detoxification programmes are not typically required.
Instead, intense therapy is advised to help individuals explore the emotional root of their addiction and work on creating healthy coping mechanisms.
It makes users feel incredibly relaxed and elated.
People who are addicted to heroin usually do anything in their power to get more of the drug.
This can be very damaging to their life and the lives of those around them.
With addiction, it may never seem like the right time to reach out for help.
However, by calling our team today we can help recommend a variety of treatment programmes that suit you.
It is mostly used by teenagers and young adults.
Many addiction treatment services consider cannabis to be a gateway drug.
It is usually the first substance young people experiment with before trying cocaine, MDMA, ketamine or heroin.
Cannabis can have a variety of detrimental effects on an individual’s mental health and make them feel extremely low.
It is also notorious for aggravating existing mental health disorders.
Through a structured therapeutical programme, you can begin to heal your mind and begin a new chapter.
The type of therapy available in your treatment programme typically depends on what staff at your facility think is most suitable.
Usually, it depends on what kind of addiction you are facing and how severe that addiction is.
Staff also take into consideration the progress you have made, your needs and your mindset.
Private treatment also includes the major benefit of holistic therapy.
This can help you to explore a more well-rounded and spiritual side to healing.
Sadly, this form of treatment is not currently offered by the NHS which is why we advise clients to opt for private services.
The types of therapies available at a drug and alcohol rehab in Hounslow include, but are not limited to:
Whilst it may seem overwhelming thinking about beginning therapy, it is designed to help you in your recovery efforts.
For more information on holistic and traditional therapy, speak to a member of our advisory team.
They can help to answer any questions you have about treatment and therapy.
A dual diagnosis is a professional medical diagnosis given when a person is struggling with both a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder, such as:
Co-occurring disorders often present together, but for practitioners with little to no experience, they can be difficult to diagnose.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we work closely with dual diagnosis treatment providers and can ensure you receive the help you need.
If you believe you are facing co-occurring disorders, our team can offer you and your family support.
Going through this alone can be very isolating and make you less likely to stay in recovery.
We recommend opening up to a friend or loved one during this challenging time.
Having a support network can help you at every stage in the recovery journey.
As part of your continued programme, relapse prevention is offered in a variety of different ways.
We understand that thoughts of completing treatment are daunting.
Clients often worry about their likelihood of success and how they will avoid triggers upon their return home.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we work with clinics where relapse prevention support is offered through workshops and a written plan.
A relapse prevention plan is created by clients and finalised by a support worker.
It details private information about certain triggers and newly developed coping mechanisms that will be shared with your support network to help avoid a future relapse.
Relapses don’t occur in one single moment, contrary to popular belief.
Instead, they are rather a combination of multiple thoughts and feelings that result in a physical event of addictive behaviour.
Having a relapse prevention plan in place can help you and your loved ones to recognise the signs before it happens.
Your plan will also contain mindfulness methods such as HALT.
HALT stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired.
It encourages you to stop for a moment and think of which personal needs are not being met.
Acknowledging your feelings can help you to avoid engaging in addictive behaviour.
If a relapse does happen, don’t struggle alone. Remember, Rehab 4 Addiction is always here for you.
Relapses don’t signal failure but are rather a sign that your needs are not being met.
In this instance, we will advise you to re-enter rehab for more tailored support.
Once your programme is complete, you will return home well equipped to begin the newest chapter of your recovery journey.
Following this, a continued form of outpatient treatment called aftercare will begin.
Aftercare is very helpful in supporting clients through the first twelve months of sobriety.
It combines drop-in sessions and therapy sessions at the clinic in which you completed the residential aspect of your rehab programme.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we encourage clients to recover close to home.
This is because it makes aftercare and outpatient treatment more manageable for you, instead of having to travel far for sessions.
We also encourage you to reach out for support within your local community.
Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are great groups for connecting with peers who are in similar situations to yourself.
Building these bonds with people can help you to create a support network made up of people in recovery who understand what you are going through.
Sessions take place physically and virtually, making it accessible for those who may not be able to attend in-person sessions.
Al-Anon Family Support is also a great way for your family to gain valuable support.
These sessions are run for families affected by alcohol use disorder and can give them a place to seek support from people with similar experiences.
To ensure that you receive a range of services once your stay at rehab is finished, begin your journey today with Rehab 4 Addiction.
When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we offer you a highly confidential and tailored experience designed to help you seek out the best addiction treatment in Hounslow.
With the right help, there is no addiction that cannot be overcome.
