Rehab 4 Addiction

Residential & outpatient options in Manchester


On This Page:  

Rehab 4 Addiction offers drug and alcohol rehab services in the Manchester and Greater Manchester region.

Manchester is no stranger to drug and alcohol addiction.

Despite efforts by the police, drugs have never been more accessible in the region.

Manchester has one of the highest rates of alcohol consumption in England, particularly binge drinking.

Fortunately, Rehab 4 Addiction offers a variety of alcohol rehab options in the area.

This includes treatment taking place in either inpatient or primary care (home) settings.  There are benefits to either approach, depending upon your circumstances.

Rehab 4 Addiction offers a variety of drug and alcohol rehabs in North West England, including Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Manchester, Liverpool, and Cheshire.

In the short video below, we explain how we can help either yourself or a loved one when seeking rehab treatment in Manchester:

Do I really need to go to rehab?

Rehab treatment would be beneficial for anyone who is suffering from substance addiction.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of rehab treatment available – inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab.

Inpatient means staying at the clinic overnight, whereas outpatient would involve staying at home and travelling to the clinic during the daytime.

Alcohol home detox is an option that is available to people whose alcohol abuse is on the milder end of the spectrum – we go into more detail about this below.

However, there are some people for whom inpatient rehab is the only viable treatment option.

This includes:

  • Those who are drinking 30+ units of alcohol a day and/or have co-occurring mental health issues involved in their addiction
  • Those who experience regular suicidal thoughts and are prone to self-harm
  • Those with significant chronic mental health problems that would make them struggle to complete a home detox alone
  • Those who have tried and failed to remain sober despite multiple attempts at outpatient treatment in the past
  • Those who are prone to committing acts of violence or other forms of antisocial behaviour when intoxicated
  • Those who experience Delirium tremens, alcoholic seizures, or Wernicke’s encephalopathy

If any of the above criteria apply to you, then it is in your best interests to seek rehabilitation as an inpatient.

This is because there is too much risk involved in outpatient care.

If you have any questions about the specifics of inpatient and outpatient care, you can discuss this with one of our advisors during your phone consultation.

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs)

For many people, there can be a lot of ‘grey area’ in terms of how they perceive their own patterns of alcohol consumption, and whether it constitutes a problem or not.

This is a common complication and can stop people who need help from getting into treatment, which is why there are various methods of trying to make this more objective and transparent.

One popular method of assessment is the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, or AUDIT for short.

AUDIT features a series of questions about drinking habits, along with a corresponding scoring system that gives an indication of when your drinking may have become problematic.

The test features 10 different questions, as follows:

  • How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?
  • How many units of alcohol do you consume on a typical day when you are drinking?
  • How often have you had 6 or more units as a female or 8 or more as a male, on a single occasion during the last year?
  • How often during the last year have you found that you were unable to stop drinking once you had started?
  • How often during the last year have you failed to do what was expected from you because of your drinking?
  • How often during the last year have you required an alcoholic drink in the morning to get yourself going after a heavy drinking session?
  • How often during the last year have you had feelings of guilt or remorse after drinking?
  • How often during the last year have you been unable to remember what happened the night before because you had been drinking?
  • Have you or somebody else been injured as a result of your drinking?
  • Has a relative, friend, doctor, or other health professional expressed concern about your drinking or suggested that you need to cut down?

The idea is that you answer the questions above and then use the AUDIT scoring system to assess your answers.

A score between 0 and 7 indicates a low risk, 8 to 15 indicates an increased risk, 16 to 19 indicates a higher risk, and 20 or more would indicate a probability of alcohol dependence.

You can search ‘Audit drinking scale’ for more information and to take the test for yourself.

How a professional interventionist can help a loved one

Rehab is an incredibly effective method of treating addiction, but before someone can get help at rehab, they must accept and acknowledge that they have an addiction.

Sometimes it can take a very long for someone to admit that they have a problem – perhaps years, or even decades.

It can take a drastic step such as an intervention to get through to someone and get them to recognise the fact that they need professional help.

An intervention usually involves the addicted person’s loved ones sitting down in a room with them and calmly explaining to them the effect that their substance abuse has had on them.

It is very common for the person to get defensive during conversations like this, which can sometimes lead to the conversation becoming heated and out of control.

This is why it is best to have the help of a licensed intervention counsellor, who can make sure that the session is constructive.

Part of our service is providing free information on everything related to addiction and rehab. This includes advice on how to arrange an intervention.

We can provide step-by-step instructions to ensure that you have the best chance of getting through to the person who you are concerned about.

What is residential/inpatient rehab in Manchester?

Industrial bedroom with dark wooden floors

We may recommend rehab which is residential in nature. This means patients live within the alcohol rehab centre for the treatment’s entire duration.

Since our rehab centres are located in Manchester, patients are never too far from friends and family. However, patients must fully commit to rehab for the duration of treatment.

During detoxification, patients are permitted visits from family members and friends.

In fact, during therapy friends and family are positively encouraged to attend and particulate in the treatment process.

Private Rehab vs. Council founded rehab treatment

We currently only provide referrals to private drug & alcohol rehab clinics.

However, there are a number of options out there that are free for patients, either through the council or other non-profit organisations.

We understand that it may seem like a more appealing option to get free rehab treatment, but it is worth bearing in mind that there are positives and negatives to each option.

The obvious plus of going with a public-funded rehab is that you will not have to pay for treatment.

The drawbacks are that you will likely have to wait a substantial amount of time for treatment, due to the high demand and low availability of places.

You will also not get as much choice or control about the style of treatment that you receive, or the type of clinic that you end up at.

When it comes to private rehab, the main drawback is that you will have to pay for treatment, and it will be a considerable financial investment.

However, going private does mean that you can start you treatment basically straight away. This can be a big advantage for anyone who is in extreme drug or alcohol addiction.

You will also likely have a higher standard of accommodation than you would at a public rehab. This can make a big difference if you are staying at the clinic for a month.

What happens once I arrive?

During detoxification, patients must tackle withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are closely monitored by the medical team.

The severity of symptoms depends on the substance abuse in question. Medication is offered to ease otherwise painful withdrawal symptoms.

Once patients successfully navigate through detoxification, the mental aspects of addiction are then addressed through therapy and counselling sessions.

By this time, withdrawal symptoms occurring during detoxification have fully ceased.

Patients are thus free to concentrate on tackling negative mindsets which encourage addictive behaviours.

During therapy, patients explore deep psychological triggers of addiction. Therapy takes place in groups or one-on-one with a therapist.

Modern therapy techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy are employed.

These treatments help patients understand how addiction arose in the first place.

Coping mechanisms to prevent relapse are developed during therapy.  Such mechanisms reduce the risk of relapse once rehab concludes.

Alcohol detox & rehab in Manchester

Health and wellness massage for sports and fitness

Alcohol is an integral part of British culture, and there are many social problems as a direct or indirect result of that.

Despite being legal, widely available, and carrying a little social stigma, alcohol ruins countless lives across the country each year.

In the short term, alcohol use increases a person’s chances of engaging in risky behaviour.

In the long term, there is no limit to the amount of damage that alcohol addiction can do to a drinker, as well as everyone else around them.

At Rehab 4 Addiction, we provide rehab referrals for people who are suffering from substance addiction. As you might imagine, the most common type of referral is for alcohol addiction.

Although it is a tragedy that so many people suffer from alcoholism, it is reassuring to know that rehab is a genuinely effective treatment that helps thousands of people into recovery every year.

The first thing that will happen at rehab is beginning your alcohol detox, which will be overseen and managed by a specialist medical team.

It is important that it is done this way, as unsupervised alcohol detox, or going ‘cold turkey’, can be very dangerous.

At rehab, they can help you through your withdrawal symptoms with medications. This usually includes Subutex, a special sedative that is commonly used to facilitate alcohol withdrawal.

After getting sober and clean, you will be able to focus on your wellbeing through the means of therapy sessions, staged over a number of weeks.

Getting a better understanding of your addiction, and being taught coping techniques, will give you the best chance of recovering from your addiction for the long term.

You will also be involved in drawing up a relapse prevention plan before you leave. This will help to guide you through the first months of your new life in recovery.

The risks of an unmanaged alcohol withdrawal

Withdrawing from alcohol without proper medical guidance or intervention is an extremely dangerous thing to do. It can often result in seizures, which can sometimes be fatal.

There is an especially high risk of this if you have been drinking heavily, and/or for a long period of time.

This is why it is never recommended to withdraw from alcohol without medical supervision, or at least medication and guidance.

Alcohol home detox in Manchester

People in circle holding hands

The only case in which is viable to detox from home is if you have the proper medication and step-by-step guidance.

This is something that we can arrange, and at a much lesser fee than residential rehab.

A guided home detox costs around £1500, and involves the use of the medication Librium, a course of which will be sent out to you in the post.

This is very different from a ‘DIY’ detox with no medication involved, which is much more dangerous.

Home alcohol detox is only an option for those who meet certain criteria.

For example, your alcohol consumption would need to be less than 30 units per day, and you would need to be in a stable home environment while you complete detox.

The other downsides are that you will not be under medical supervision, and will not have access to the therapy part of rehab.

We can discuss during your telephone consultation whether or not home detox would be a viable option for you.

Rehab for Cocaine in Manchester

Although cocaine is widely available and widely used in this country, it is an illegal substance that can easily ruin lives.

It is highly addictive and incredibly expensive, in some cases being worth more than its weight in gold.

This is a combination that can cause the life of a user to fall into chaos and addiction fairly quickly. If this happens to you, it would be best to seek treatment at rehab.

All aspects of cocaine addiction treatment can be taken care of at rehab.

This means that you can go through supervised withdrawal, therapy, education, and behaviour management, all within the same facility.

Rather than just getting you off cocaine, rehab will look at the issues beneath your addiction, and explore how you came to abuse the substance, to begin with.

This will give you a much better chance of staying off cocaine for good.

You’ll have noticed that we used the term ‘withdrawal’ rather than detox – this is because cocaine doesn’t require what would traditionally be called a detox.

In other words, you won’t need to use an assistive medication to come off cocaine, as you would with heroin or alcohol.

However, you will be vulnerable to psychological symptoms as you go through withdrawal, and these will need to be managed by professionals, which will be the case at rehab.

Rehab for Heroin in Manchester

Diverse people in a support group

Heroin is nowhere near as socially acceptable as some other drugs, and there is a great deal of stigma around its use.

Nevertheless, heroin use is widespread throughout Manchester and the rest of the country.

Those who abuse heroin run a high risk of developing a full-blown addiction and dependency, as well as a litany of other dangerous symptoms.

As well as the health risks from heroin use itself, there is a great deal of other serious lifestyle risks involved in heroin abuse.

This can include turning to crime to afford another fix or contracting HIV or hepatitis from sharing needles.

A life in heroin addiction is miserable, and withdrawal is so severely difficult that it can often seem like there is no way out.

However, it is possible to get help with heroin addiction through drug & alcohol rehab in Manchester.

Rehab provides the ideal location to go through heroin detox and withdrawal, which can present the risks of extreme symptoms, both mental and physical.

Heroin withdrawal can be very dangerous if not properly managed, which is why it is best to have a specialist team of medical professionals on your side.

They can help you get through the pain barrier of withdrawal, manage your symptoms and use medications such as Subutex wherever appropriate.

Once you have got through your detox safely, which should take around 10 days, you will be able to start your therapy and treatment plan.

Again, you will have help from specialist professionals with this, including counsellors, psychotherapists, and other practitioners.

Through a combination of therapies, you will be able to give yourself the best chance of getting into long-term recovery.

Rehab for Cannabis in Manchester

Therapy room

Despite still being illegal, cannabis is one of the most widely used drugs in the UK. In fact, if you are walking through a major city, it is likely that you will see at least a few people openly smoking cannabis.

It is often thought of as a drug that does not cause any adverse effects, which could not be further from the truth.

Although it is not possible to overdose from cannabis, there are many ways in which regular use can ruin a person’s life.

Long-term cannabis use is associated with elevated risks of mental illnesses, including depression and anxiety disorders.

Cannabis users also tend to become more socially withdrawn, meaning that any mental health issues can easily be exacerbated by their social isolation.

Despite the myths and misconceptions around cannabis, it is a drug, and it is possible to get addicted to it.

If your cannabis use has had an adverse effect on your mental health, but you find yourself unable to stop using, it is time to accept that you have an addiction.

Rehab can provide care and respite for anyone suffering from cannabis addiction, through a combination of therapies and treatments.

As with any other substance, the staff at rehab will aim to discover your motivations for using the drug and to deal with those issues in a constructive way.

Dual diagnosis at rehab

Very often, people who are inactive drug or alcohol addiction are also suffering from other chronic mental health conditions which can make their addictions and problematic behaviours much more severe.

This could be things like borderline personality disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, or schizophrenia.

These conditions can often go undiagnosed for years, during which time they are making life much more difficult for the person suffering.

At rehab, there will be a team of top mental health professionals on-site, who will be able to identify and diagnose these issues, and then treat them appropriately.

This might include medication, therapy, or both. The important thing is that any issues are identified so that they can be dealt with properly.

This is often referred to as ‘dual diagnosis ‘.

Relapse prevention planning at rehab

Relapse prevention planning is one of the last things that you will do at rehab, and also one of the most important. Going back into the world will be a big adjustment, and it is important to do whatever you can to prepare for that.

The staff at the clinic will help you draw up a plan, which will put into action everything you have learned over the last few weeks at rehab.

This plan will encourage you to be mindful of your triggers, and avoid certain environments if necessary, such as bars or clubs.

It may also suggest that you revaluate your friend groups so that you can minimise contact with anyone who is still in active addiction.

It may also encourage you to go to regular group meetings, such as AA or NA, or equivalent.

You will need to be proactive in strengthening your own recovery once you leave the clinic.

Aftercare once alcohol rehab in Manchester concludes

Group therapy - hands in air

Once rehab has concluded patients receive up to 18 months aftercare. Rehab centres in Manchester allow patients to attend the centre during this period.

The rehab clinic we work with aims to help you avoid relapse once you return home.

We feel this is due to the quality of aftercare on offer. A 24 hour day helpline is offered should patients near a relapse crisis.

We maintain close working relationships with Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups in and around Manchester.

Patients are urged to attend a 12 step programme following the completion of alcohol rehab.

How much does rehab cost?

There are a variety of rehabs in Manchester, with varying admission costs.

The price of attending rehab will also depend on the length of your treatment, and whether you select to sleep in a multi or single occupancy room.

The important thing to remember is there is usually treatment available to suit most budgets.

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.

Expect to pay around £1,500 for a home detox. We may inform you of the exact prices of rehabs in your local area.

More affordable options

Not everyone will have access to the funds to pay for private residential rehab.

Fortunately, there are more affordable options. Rehab 4 Addiction is a national provider of home detox options.

This is considerably more affordable than undergoing detox from a residential clinic.

You can contact our helpline today to learn about how to initiate this process.

Read about the various pros and cons of home detoxing for alcohol here.

Another option is to seek out help via a GP referral. Your GP is likely to refer you to a local community drug service.

You can find a directory of local services of this nature here.

The support you will find here is typically in the form of outpatient support groups.

It’s also possible to access residential treatment, but you must submit a funding application, and this process is notoriously lengthy, and it’s not uncommon for your application to be rejected by the funding commissions.

This is because the criteria for funding is assessed according to your needs.

Lastly, another avenue to pursue is that of local “mutual support groups” run by organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

Such organisations are “run by addicts, for addicts”.   This is why these groups are known as “fellowship” meetings.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690
