Who is rehab suitable for?

group-standing

There are many different types of rehab clinics available on the private rehab market.

Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help you make sense of the different options and find a clinic that works for you.

For example, some clinics will cater exclusively to women, while some clinics have an emphasis on treating members of a certain religion.

Another thing to take into consideration when looking at rehab options is whether you would be more suited to outpatient or inpatient treatment.

Inpatient rehab means that the person goes to a clinic and stays there for the whole duration of their treatment, including sleeping there overnight.

Outpatient treatment means that the person will attend rehab during the day, but will stay at home overnight and during evenings. Most people attend rehab as inpatients.

One of the reasons for this is that outpatient care is more complicated and requires the person to meet certain criteria.

In order to be a suitable candidate for outpatient care, the person must:

  • Have a substance addiction that is towards the less severe end of the spectrum
  • Live within a short distance from the clinic for travelling purposes
  • Have a stable home life with minimal distractions and/or triggers
  • Be able to commit to being punctual and having full attendance

Most people who are going through recovery and withdrawal will not meet these criteria, and in that case, inpatient rehab would be more suitable.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Inpatient rehab is suitable for:

  • Those who regularly drink 30+ units of alcohol per day
  • Those who have regular suicidal thoughts
  • Those who have co-occurring mental health problems
  • Those who have tried and failed to get sober previously
  • Those who have committed acts of violence against loved ones when intoxicated
  • Those who have an unstable home life (abusive/toxic partner, antisocial neighbours, etc)

Whenever you are ready to call us on 0800 140 4690, your Rehab 4 Addiction advisor will be able to discuss with you which kind of treatment would be suitable for you.

This will involve asking some questions about your level of substance abuse and your current circumstances.

We recognise that these can be sensitive subjects for many, so please be assured that we will handle your call in strict confidence.

We are bound by all applicable data protection laws of the United Kingdom.

The admissions process in Liverpool

Couple meeting a therapist

Once you arrive at the clinic, you will be assessed by the on-site team, to ensure your wellbeing, as well as figure out the best possible treatment plan for you at rehab.

Your physiological, psychological, and emotional needs will dictate how your treatment plan is structured, from your detox right through to therapy and relapse prevention planning.

One method of assessing a client’s needs is the six ASAM criteria, named after the medical society of the same name that was founded in 1954.

This technique uses six different criteria to make a judgment as to what type of treatment and care would be best for the patient. The six criteria are:

  • Acute Intoxication and/or Withdrawal Potential – This involves exploring an individual’s past and current experiences of substance use and withdrawal
  • Biomedical conditions and complications – Looking into the individual’s health history and any current physical conditions that may be a consideration
  • Emotional, Behavioural, or Cognitive Complications – Exploring an individual’s general thoughts and emotions, as well as any chronic or acute mental health issues
  • Readiness to change – Assessing how willing the person is to put in the work necessary to recover through their treatment
  • Relapse, continued use, or continued problem potential – Assessing the individual’s unique relationship with relapse or other related problems
  • Recovery/living environment – assessing the person’s current living environment, what effect it has had, and assessing how suitable they would be to the rehab environment

Once you have been assessed on the criteria above, you will begin your detox shortly thereafter.

This will involve a different approach depending on your substance of choice and your circumstances.

By the time your admission assessment is complete, the team will have enough to go on to plan out your detox as well as the rest of your treatment at rehab.

Intervention for addiction

Health and wellness massage for sports and fitness

One of the reasons that it can take so long for someone to address their substance abuse is staying in denial over whether they are in addiction.

Someone might be able to convince themselves, perhaps for years, that their level of drug or alcohol abuse does not constitute a problem.

Sometimes, it can take their family and/or loved ones to get through to them and make them see how much damage they are causing to themselves and those around them.

The most effective method of doing this is through staging an intervention.

This involves the person’s loved ones sitting down with them and communicating clearly and constructively about the damage that their addiction is causing.

This is best carried out with the help of a trained intervention counsellor, who specialises in this area.

If you are calling us about the drug or alcohol problem of a loved one, we can provide free advice on how to stage an effective intervention.

How much does rehab cost in Liverpool?

As with any other service, the cost of private rehab varies from one rehab clinic to another.

Your final rehab cost will also depend on what kind of treatment and accommodation you choose.

For example, most people stay at rehab for a 28-day course of treatment, but there is also the option of a 10-day rehab.

If you were to go with the 10-day option, you could expect to pay between £2000 and £4000 for a place in a multiple-person dorm, and between £3000 and £5000 for a single-occupancy room.

This price would naturally increase with a 28-day plan, going up to around £6000 for a single-occupancy room, and between £8000 and £12000 for a multiple-occupancy dorm.

If you cannot afford a full rehab course at the moment, there is the option of having a standalone detox at home. This is not the same as going ‘cold turkey’ – it would be arranged to send medication and guidance out to you in the post.

This would cost around £1500 to arrange.

While this option might be appealing in a financial sense, you would not be under medical supervision through detox, as you would at rehab.

This means that your detox would not be as safe.

You would also not get the advantage of having weeks of therapy and treatment after the detox, making it statistically more likely that you would end up in relapse.

Assisted home detox is only available to those who meet certain criteria, such as consuming a relatively low amount of alcohol.

However, there are other ways to make rehab more affordable. This is part of our free advice service.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

We can also provide advice on how to delegate your responsibilities while you are away receiving treatment at rehab.

Private Rehab vs. Public-funded rehab

Rehab-house

We are an agency that deals exclusively with private rehab clinics.

However, we would like to point out that there are rehab placements available that are free at the point of use.

These are usually secured through the NHS, your local council, or another non-profit organisation.

As you might expect, there are positives and negatives involved with each type of rehab placement.

The main advantage of getting a rehab place through public-funded means is that it will either be free or more affordable than private rehab.

However, the disadvantage is that you will likely have to wait for lengthy periods of time before starting treatment.

This is due to the long waiting lists and high demand associated with public-funded rehab clinics.

Going through private rehab means that you can start treatment straight away, which is a great benefit for anyone who is in a cycle of heavy substance abuse.

You will also have access to a higher standard of accommodation and amenities than you would if you were to go public.

While this may not sound like a big issue to some, it can make a big difference over the course of 28 days on-site.

The obvious drawback to choosing private rehab is that you will need to pay for your treatment.

There are also other treatments for addiction that are available through the NHS, including counselling services and group meetings.

If you cannot afford private rehab at the moment, please do not lose hope – book an appointment with your GP and ask them what treatments they can arrange within your local area.

There are likely to be a number of free resources available to you.

Criteria for Substance Use Disorder – the DSM-5 system

When addressing a drug or alcohol problem, it is important to judge the severity of the problem at hand.

This is the purpose of the DSM-5 technique, which uses four different categories to assess the severity of a person’s addiction.

The categories for the DSM-5 approach are as follows:

  • Impaired Control – Using more of an illicit substance than intended, or using more often than intended; wanting to cut down and not being able to do so
  • Social Problems – neglecting responsibilities and/or relationships; giving up activities that they used to love; being unable to complete simple tasks at work or school
  • Risky Use – using in risky circumstances or settings; using despite knowing that there are problems
  • Physical Dependence – Needing more of the drug to gain the same effect; having withdrawal symptoms when going without the drug

Two to three of the above symptoms would indicate that the person is living with a mild substance abuse disorder.

Four or five symptoms would indicate that they have a moderate substance abuse disorder, while six or seven would indicate that they have a severe substance abuse disorder, which under this DSM-5 model is classed as an addiction.

Rehab can help no matter how extreme, moderate, or mild your drug or alcohol addiction is.

Nevertheless, it is important to use methods such as this to determine what would be the best course of action in terms of detox and treatment.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

How long does rehab last?

Group therapy - teens - black and white

In general, a full course of rehab usually lasts for about 28 days.

This includes the detox stage of treatment, which usually takes between 7 to 10 days.

Sometimes, a patient may take longer in detox, perhaps due to detoxing from a particularly heavy pattern of substance abuse.

In this case, it may be that there is a knock-on effect on your total time at rehab.

From start to finish, residential rehab should not take much longer than a month.

This might seem like a long time to be in treatment, especially since you have to leave your everyday life and other responsibilities and obligations behind for a month.

However, try to think of this as an investment in yourself and your healthier new life.

If a month in rehab can mean years or decades in recovery and sobriety, it is a small price to pay.

We can also provide free advice on how to take care of your commitments while you are away at the clinic.

Alcohol detox & rehab in Liverpool

Nightlife is a big part of Liverpool’s culture, and alcohol is an integral part of that.

Every weekend, the city’s A&E departments are filled full of people with alcohol-related injuries, and chronic alcohol abuse affects the lives of thousands around Liverpool.

If you are stuck in a pattern of alcohol abuse and are not sure where to turn, Rehab 4 Addiction is here to help.

We can provide you with a referral to a top-quality drug & alcohol rehab in Liverpool.

Detoxing from alcohol at rehab means that you can withdraw from the drug in the safest possible environment, under medical supervision.

This is a huge advantage, as going cold turkey is always extremely dangerous, especially if you have been a heavy drinker.

At rehab, the detox team can manage your symptoms effectively and safely, while also looking after your psychological wellbeing.

Alcohol rehab is not just about getting sober – it also involves exploring and addressing your underlying issues, to ensure that your chances of relapse are minimal.

This will involve a few weeks of intensive therapy and education, to give you a better understanding of addiction.

We go into more detail about these treatments below.

After a treatment course of about 28 days, which includes detox, you will be able to walk out of the clinic as a newly sober person in recovery.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

The risks of unmanaged alcohol withdrawal

Man with pen

It is never recommended that you try to detox from alcohol yourself, or go ‘cold turkey’.

This is because alcohol withdrawal is linked with an increased risk of seizure, which is a serious and potentially life-threatening incident.

This is why a supervised detox almost always involves the use of a medication such as Librium.

Librium is a sedative that is commonly used to help patients to get through the physical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, as well as reduce their risk of adverse symptoms.

If you have any questions about going through detox or withdrawing from alcohol, our team are on hand to offer expert advice.

Rehab for Cocaine in Liverpool

Cocaine is a highly controlled substance, for which even possession has a maximum sentence of 7 years in prison.

However, despite being very much illegal, cocaine use is widespread across the UK, especially in pubs, bars, and clubs.

As a highly addictive and expensive substance, cocaine abuse can easily cause a person’s life to spiral out of their control.

If this has happened to you or someone that you care about, the best course of action is to go to rehab.

Cocaine detox is best carried out at rehab, where the person can have proper medical supervision as they go through withdrawal.

Although cocaine detox carries a lesser risk of seizures and other severe symptoms than heroin or alcohol detox, the risk is still there.

There is also the likelihood of difficult psychological symptoms, such as mood swings, paranoia, anxiety, and intense cocaine cravings.

These symptoms will need to be managed by professionals who know what they are doing.

If you have been in a pattern of heavy cocaine use, it is never a good idea to detox alone without help.

Once your detox is finished, which should take about 7 days, you can focus on addressing the issues that led you to cocaine abuse in the first place.

This will involve working through trauma and psychological difficulties, identifying triggers, and focusing on ways to modify your behaviour.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is a common method of achieving this, along with dialectal behavioural therapy (DBT) and other forms of counselling.

In total, cocaine rehab in Liverpool should take around 28 days to complete, including detox.

Rehab for Heroin in Liverpool

Therapy room

Heroin is one of the most addictive opiates on the planet, as well as being one of the most dangerous and destructive.

There are a great number of health risks associated with heroin abuse. In the short term, heroin users have a high risk of death from overdose.

In the long term, there is an increased risk of cardiovascular issues, collapsed veins, and other serious health problems.

This is as well as the lifestyle risks from heroin addiction, such as committing crimes to afford a fix or contracting bloodborne diseases like HIV from sharing needles.

Heroin addiction is best treated at residential rehab, where you go through a safe medically-assisted detox before moving on to therapy and identifying the underlying issues behind your substance abuse.

Detox from heroin needs to be carefully supervised by medical professionals, as the risk of serious symptoms such as seizures is always high.

Heroin detox almost always involves the use of medications like Subutex, and usually requires moving on to methadone on a medium-term basis – sometimes for around 12 months after coming off heroin.

Although heroin addiction can cause immense damage to the lives of sufferers as well as everyone around them, there is always a way out if you commit to the treatment plan at rehab.

This will involve going through a number of different therapies, and having a firm plan in place for staying in recovery when you leave the clinic.

The rehab staff will be there to help you every step of the way – all that they ask is that you try your hardest during treatment and do what is asked of you.

Rehab for Cannabis in Liverpool

Despite common myths and misconceptions, cannabis is indeed a drug, and its use is certainly not harmless.

Although it is not possible to overdose from cannabis, there is a lengthy list of mental health problems associated with long-term use.

This includes an increased likelihood of paranoia, depression, anxiety disorder, and others.

Cannabis can also cause users to become socially withdrawn, which in turn will likely make any mental health problems much worse.

To the uninitiated, cannabis might not often be associated with rehab.

However, cannabis rehab is very much a real thing, and a lot of people in rehab are there because of their cannabis use.

If you were addicted to any other drug and using it on a daily basis, it would be recommended that you go to rehab, and cannabis is no different.

Cannabis has the ability to take over your life, and if that is happening to you, the best thing to do is seek treatment at rehab.

Cannabis detox is different from detoxing from other drugs, in that it is not usually associated with extreme physical symptoms such as muscle spasms or seizures.

However, there are a number of psychological symptoms that are common during cannabis withdrawal, and these symptoms will need to be managed.

This can include mood swings, irritability, and feelings of anxiety and depression. If you detox at rehab, the detox team can help you to get through these difficulties.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Types of therapies on offer in Liverpool

Diverse people in a support group

Treating your drug or alcohol addiction at rehab will require the use of a number of different therapies, all of which can be administered by mental health professionals on-site.

Below are some of the treatments that you can expect to experience at rehab, along with a brief explanation of each.

Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is very often used to treat drug and alcohol and drug addiction as well as other chronic mental health issues.

It focuses on challenging cognitive distortions and learning how to manage emotional responses to negative thoughts.

Dialectical behavioural therapy

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy often used to treat personality disorders such as borderline personality disorder.

It is used to treat unpleasant symptoms such as suicidal ideation, as well as problematic behaviours such as risk-taking or self-harm.

Motivational interviewing

This is a therapy technique that is designed to shake people out of ambivalence and apathy, which can be common at certain points along the recovery journey.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) aims to find new sources of motivation and inspiration for the patient, providing something positive for them to focus on in the future.

Brief interventions

Brief intervention is an umbrella term used to describe any short-term intervention that is used to initiate a positive change.

This could be something like having a discussion with a drug counsellor at a drop-in centre or calling an organisation like Rehab 4 Addiction for free advice.

It is a positive step towards a more concrete change.

Holistic therapies

Holistic therapy is a term that is used to describe activities that may not be considered therapy in the traditional sense but still have a positive effect on your overall wellbeing.

This might be things like yoga, meditation, gardening, tai chi, reiki, and art or music therapy.

Holistic therapies will almost certainly form part of your treatment plan at drug & alcohol rehab in Liverpool.

Group therapy

Group therapy is a very important part of rehab, as it gives people a chance to share their thoughts with others, while also learning from the experiences of the people in the group.

Addiction can very often lead to social isolation, which is not good for anyone. Group meetings seek to remedy that by providing a small community that is sympathetic to the struggles of others going through recovery.

Individual therapy

This is an umbrella term for the different types of therapy that you will go through on a one-on-one basis with a mental health practitioner.

This could be traditional counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, or trigger identification.

It is important to work through your issues with professionals so that your chances of relapsing in the future are as small as possible.

Family therapy

In some cases, it may be recommended that some of your family members or loved ones come into the clinic to be part of some of your therapy sessions.

This can be very helpful in terms of repairing fractured relationships, which is a very common trait of addiction.

We understand that family relationships can be complicated – please be assured that this will only be arranged if it is suitable for your treatment plan, and if all parties, including you, consent to it.

Dual diagnosis at rehab

Drug and alcohol addiction is often closely associated with other forms of chronic mental illness.

This can be personality disorders such as borderline personality disorder (BPD) or psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.

Conditions like this can often make a substance abuse problem much more difficult to manage due to their symptoms.

Unfortunately, many people can struggle for years without being diagnosed or realising what they are experiencing.

At drug & alcohol rehab in Liverpool, you will be under the care and supervision of a mental health team who will be able to find any such disorders and treat them appropriately.

This is referred to as dual diagnosis – the diagnosis of a condition that is present along with the already established substance addiction.

The mental health clinicians on-site can treat these conditions with a combination of therapy and medication.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Relapse prevention at rehab

Industrial bedroom with dark wooden floors

Going from active addiction into rehab is a big adjustment to make for anyone.

Likewise, it will likely be a challenge to adjust to the chaos of the outside world after being in the safe environment of rehab.

This is why one of the final things that you will do at rehab is put together a relapse prevention plan for when you leave the clinic.

This will give you a chance to put everything you have learned during your time at rehab into action.

This might involve making difficult decisions as to who you socialise with, as you will need to do your best to avoid anyone who is still in active addiction.

You will also be asked to consider where you spend your time, for example avoiding bars or clubs in the future.

Taking reactive steps like this, along with proactive steps like attending regular therapy sessions, will give you the best possible chance of staying in recovery for the long term.

The alternatives to rehab

We understand that there are many people out there who would like to go to rehab, but either cannot afford private treatment, or do not want to wait for treatment through public services.

Below, we have listed a number of different treatment options which are either free or much cheaper than rehab, as well as being available immediately.

12 Step Meetings

Groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous provide free support to people struggling with addiction, in the form of group therapy meetings.

These meetings take place all over the UK, including here in Liverpool.

Generally speaking, any group that features the word ‘-Anonymous’ will be based on the 12-step model.

This model encourages a spiritual approach to recovery, including the necessity of giving yourself over to a ‘higher power’.

Not everyone is entirely comfortable with 12 step methods, and some prefer a more scientific, evidence-based approach.

This is fine, and it really comes down to a matter of choice.

There will likely be non-12 step group therapy meetings available in your area as well.

If you call us on 0800 140 4690, we can provide clear advice on the free services available in your local area.

SMART Recovery

SMART, which stands for self-management and recovery training, is a nonprofit organisation that has been in operation since 1994.

Its purpose is to provide free or affordable assistance to anyone who is going through drug or alcohol addiction problems, as well as their families and loved ones.

Unlike the 12 step-based programmes, SMART treats addiction with a secular, evidence-based approach, utilising methods such as CBT to help people.

It does not use the concept of a ‘higher power’.

They view drug and alcohol addiction as a dysfunctional behavioural habit, rather than a ‘disease’, as it is commonly referred to by AA and similar groups.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Alcohol home detox

As mentioned in one of the sections above, it is possible to arrange an assisted home-based alcohol detox, where you will receive medication through the post.

This will usually come at a cost of around £1500 for a 10-day detox, which is considerably cheaper than a full course of rehab.

However, this option is only available to people who meet certain criteria.

If you are consuming over 30 units of alcohol on a daily basis, you would not be eligible for a home detox, and your detox would need to be handled on an inpatient basis.

Likewise, if things are difficult at home in terms of your living environment, you would not be eligible.

We can discuss over the phone whether a home detox would be available to you.

Outpatient treatment via your local Drug & Alcohol team in Liverpool

Diverse people in a supporting group session

Addiction is a health issue, and as such, can be treated by your local GP to the best of their abilities.

If you book an appointment with your GP and explain your situation regarding substance abuse and addiction, they will be able to provide you with a list of resources that could help.

They may also be able to put you on the waiting list for a public-funded rehab or similar treatment facility.

You may also be able to be placed under the care of a drug & alcohol outreach team, who can check in with you on a regular basis, possibly including home visits or drop-in clinics.

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).

When it comes to addiction treatment, the number of free resources available will vary by area, but you will have a number of options available to you.

Contact your GP for more information and advice.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

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.

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.
