How we can help you today

When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we help identify the extent and nature of your addiction. This involves carrying out a free but important telephone assessment. Information we obtain during this assessment allows us to identify specific treatment providers in Lancashire who may be suited to solving your issues with drug or alcohol addiction.

We refer you to a range of treatment providers in Lancashire to suit most budgets. We also help you locate statutory services when you do not have access to funds required for private treatment.

Rehab 4 Addiction has partnered with a diverse range of Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered treatment providers in Lancashire. This varies from luxury rehab to free statutory services. We ensure you or your loved one are paired with a treatment provider that’s both highly capable and affordable.

For private treatment, costs typically start at around £2,500 for a one-week detox programme. You can expect to pay between £5000-£9750 for a comprehensive 28-day rehabilitation programme. Depending on your circumstances, you may also qualify for free or subsidised statutory treatment.

Do I really need to go to rehab?

The decision to attend a drug and alcohol rehab clinic is not one you should take likely. There should be a clear need to go to rehab, not a mere ‘want’.  The DSM-5 Criteria for Substance Use Disorders offers some guidance on assessing the severity of the addiction, with particular reference to symptoms.

The symptoms of addiction covered by DSM-5 include:

  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

As a rule of thumb, it is said that if you can identify two or three of these symptoms, you are said to be experiencing a mild addiction. If you identity four or five of these symptoms, then the addiction is said to be moderate. If you identify six or more of these symptoms, then the addiction is said to be severe.

You can learn more about some of the assessment methods we make use of here.  You can, of course, also contact our helpline for a more thorough assessment, and to determine if rehab is right for your needs. We may also discuss other potential treatments, such as home detox or outpatient treatment.

What if I cannot afford rehab? What are my alternative options?

It’s true that not everyone will be able to raise the necessary funds to pay for rehab privately. The good news is that there are both free and more affordable options.

Undergoing a home detox is, for instance, much more affordable. You won’t be shielded from temptations in the way you are when you undergo residential treatment, but you will be able to access the same medications available at a residential rehab. Please contact our helpline today to learn more about home detox options.

There also exists a number of statutory organisations that are funded by your local council. This treatment is entirely free, although you will typically and initially be offered outpatient treatment in the form of group therapy. You can locate such a service in Lancashire by entering your postcode in this helpful tool provided by the NHS.

What is included in your treatment?

If you elect to undergo residential treatment in Lancashire, you should expect to receive a full and medically assisted detoxification programme. During your detox, you will be prescribed medication to help reduce withdrawal symptoms. You will also engage in the rehab clinic’s therapeutic programme.

Upon admission into a Lancashire rehab centre, you will be fully assessed by a consultant psychiatrist. Following this assessment, an individualised recovery plan will be put in place.

Each day, you will attend therapy sessions. This includes group and one-to-one therapy sessions. Example therapies include cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing and dialectical behavioural therapy. These evidence-based behavioural therapies help you build up strategies to prevent relapse once you leave the rehab clinic’s care.

Here, you work closely with addiction therapists to help you identify issues that cause you to resort to drug or alcohol use.

You can read about the full list of treatments on offer in Lancashire here.

How long does rehab last?

If you select to undergo a residential rehab programme, then expect to stay in the rehab for at least 7 days. To safely detox, you must be medically monitored whilst consuming anti-withdrawal symptom medications.

We explain the length of detoxification here.

Many opt to undergo a 28-day rehab. This is because the therapy process takes time in order to be effective. Many rehab clinics will design a programme to suit the amount of time you have available for treatment, but the standard treatment length for full rehabilitation is typically 28 days.

We answer this important question in greater depth here.

Aftercare and extended care

When you leave the rehabilitation centre, you will also gain access to aftercare sessions. These sessions take place each weekend on an outpatient basis.

Aftercare sessions help you through your first year in recovery. All the rehabilitation centres we work within Lancashire offer tailored and addiction-specific treatment programmes.

We provide a more detailed look at the aftercare process here.

We provide additional frequently asked questions here.
