How we can help

When you get in touch with our team at Rehab 4 Addiction, we’ll carry out a short assessment. This allows us to match you with suitable addiction treatment clinics in Liverpool.

We may recommend one or two or even a handful of clinics. The choice depends on your circumstances. We may suggest you seek treatment at a residential clinic e.g. if you have a chronic substance addiction.

You will receive round the clock treatment from nurses, psychiatrists and support staff. These people will help you break free from the grip of drugs or alcohol dependency.

Staying in a residential clinic is particularly important as your body detoxes. This is when you will experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms could be fatal if not monitored.

What happens during rehab in Liverpool?

When you stay at a Liverpool clinic, you enjoy therapy/counselling sessions.  These sessions focus on defeating the emotional and psychological causes of your addiction.

We introduced you to the 12-step model, as practised at Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

Therapy aims to address negative emotions, allowing you to better process these emotions.

Rehab in Liverpool helps gain you back control. You regain the power to recognise incidents in your past were out of your control.

We help you offload negative feelings, ensuring you are able to break free from prior traumatic events.

Your addiction treatment will begin with an initial assessment by a qualified psychiatrist. It is likely you will be prescribed medications to help fight withdrawal symptoms. Your detox will continue for around 4-5 days. However, rehab clinics prefer you to remain within their care for at least 10 days. This is particularly true if you are undertaking an alcohol detox.

Once detox is considered complete, you will begin to benefit from therapy sessions. These therapies include traditional psychotherapy as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. You may also benefit from alternative/holistic therapies.

Drug and alcohol rehab in Liverpool may last up to 28 days. This amount of time helps you to cement your recovery goals before you return to your home. Once you return home, follow-up aftercare sessions help you establish your recovery for the long term.

How much does rehab cost?

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.

Free alternatives and more affordable options to alcohol rehab

Not everyone reading this will be able to raise the funds for private residential rehab. The risk is, after having read this page, that you go away concluding there are no treatment options available because of your inability to pay for private rehab treatment.

This is absolutely not the case. This is because there exist various statutory and council-funded agencies that offer treatment that’s not paid for ‘out of pocket’ by the service users themselves.

Some organisations to contact include:

1. Phoenix Futures Wirral Residential Service Good

Address: Upton Road, Bidston, Birkenhead, Wirral, Merseyside, CH43 7QF

Tel: 0151 652 2667

Care Quality Commission Report: https://api.cqc.org.uk/public/v1/reports/a2d6c63e-c92b-4d25-9344-2ad4abbf2f7f?20210116110808

Care Quality Commission Verdict: Good

Our verdict: Phoenix Futures Wirral offers a good level of service to its clients. The clinic offers up to date health and safety assessments and all staff are trained to meet clients’ various needs. Past clients are positive about their experiences, and care plans are comprehensive and evidence-based.

Areas of improvement: The service is not involved in any research or innovation programmes. We feel that is somewhat of a shame. Because this clinic is so well run, we feel their operations could assist other rehabs to make improvements, and an innovation or research programme would help make that happen.

2. We are With You – Croxteth Liverpool

Address: 83-93 Stonebridge Lane, Croxteth, Liverpool, Merseyside, L11 4SJ

Tel: 0151 706 7888

Care Quality Commission Report: https://api.cqc.org.uk/public/v1/reports/562975b2-d468-414e-aead-97d6537cbf1c?20210116105342

Care Quality Commission Verdict: Good

Our verdict: Staff levels are well planned, meaning clients are safe at all times. All treatments are evidence-based in nature. The admissions assessment is comprehensive, and treatment goals are personalised to the client’s situation and circumstances.

Areas of improvement: The CQC report states the admissions risk assessment could be better planned and care records could have been more comprehensive. The client could have also improved by keeping better records of their client’s recovery goals.  We have found these criticisms are relatively easy for a clinic to overcome, and we would expect these issues to have now been addressed.

3. Birchwood Treatment Centre

Address: 23 – 25 Balls Road, Prenton, CH43 5RF

Telephone: 0151 670 5241

Care Quality Commission Report: https://api.cqc.org.uk/public/v1/reports/e1832967-b557-4a9c-a370-00e83445ca78?20210115000848

Care Quality Commission Verdict: Good

Our verdict: birchwood is a residential rehab in Wirral offering treatment for both drug and alcohol users since 1968. Birchwood consists of 20 single occupancy rooms for both men and women. We feel the staff offer fantastic and compassionate care for their clients. The pre-admissions and admissions assessment is excellent.

Areas of improvement: Greater investment in the rehab’s grounds. For instance, the CQC report stated that although the builders were adequately cleaned, the shower areas contained grouting that was ‘stained’, and residual damp stained were present on some ceilings.

Home detoxing as an affordable alternative to residential rehab

If you require an alcohol detox, but you are unable to qualify via the NHS or statutory funded sources, one thing to consider is a home detox. Although this isn’t typically free of charge, it costs a fraction of the price compared to residential rehab.

The benefits of residential rehab over home detoxification for alcoholism are many. We provide this useful guide outlining this in greater detail, which you can read here. However, if you truly cannot afford to undertake a residential detox programme, then home detox is something you should definitely consider.

If you would like to learn more about the home detox options, please submit a contact form enquiry and one of our team will call you back shortly. We carry out a telephone assessment, and if you qualify, you will be sent out a pack containing Chlordiazepoxide/Librium and Vitamin B1 (thiamin).

Mutual support groups – another potential option in Liverpool

Another option to consider is attending a mutual support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. These groups abide by the 12-step framework.  We provide a handy guide to the 12-steps here.

12 Step meetings are generally recommended for those who are actively in recovery, although the only criteria to attend is ‘a desire to stop using drugs or alcohol’.

You can find an Alcoholics Anonymous group in Liverpool here.  Alcoholics Anonymous is an entirely non-profit organisation with the aim of assisting those negatively affected by alcoholism.  These meetings are, as the name suggests, totally confidential. ‘AA meetings’, as they are known, are typically held throughout the week at multiple locations across Liverpool and Merseyside.

Can I get a family member into rehab in Liverpool?

There is nothing more heartbreaking than witnessing a loved one’s slow decline at the hands of drug and alcohol addiction. It’s not uncommon for individual’s to express denial about his or her addiction.

If this is the case, then we offer a professional intervention service in Liverpool. An addiction interventionist will set up a meeting to help facilitate your loved one’s acceptance that addiction treatment is needed.

Many rehab clinics also offer family therapy. This helps heal wounds inflicted by addiction, and also helps your loved one build up the necessary support network with family members to assist them through their first few months in their recovery.
