Before committing to a stay at a residential facility it is understandable that clients want to know more about the type of people rehab is suitable for.

Take a look at the list below, do you identify with any of the below situations?

  • You drink more than 30 units a day and struggle with mental health issues.
  • You face suicidal thoughts daily
  • You have failed to remain sober multiple times either via an outpatient programme or through a home detox
  • You cannot get through the day without consuming illicit substances
  • You suffer from Delirium tremens or alcohol-related seizures
  • You have been diagnosed with Wernicke’s encephalopathy
  • You are a high risk according to the diagnostic criteria of the DSM-5

How do I secure a place at rehab?


Whilst the admissions process may feel lengthy, it doesn’t have to be.

When you call our team, we can begin the process of finding out more about your needs and recommending treatment programmes most suited to you.

Before your admission to your chosen facility, you will be assessed and diagnosed according to multiple criteria such as the DSM-5, ASAM, or the AUDIT (if you are facing problems with alcohol).

The DSM-5 is the gold standard text about mental health.

It was developed by the American Psychiatric Association and is continually upgraded by mental health experts as our collective understanding of psychiatry evolves.

The DSM-5 states 11 symptoms, or criteria, of substance use disorders.

This includes:

  • Consuming the substance in large amounts or for longer than was originally prescribed.
  • Understanding the consequences of prolonged substance use but continuing to abuse them regardless.
  • Spending the majority of your time consuming or attempting to recover from the substance.
  • Wanting to stop taking drugs and drinking alcohol but find it incredibly difficult to.
  • Need more and more of a certain substance to achieve a high.
  • Developing withdrawal symptoms that you believe can only be made less unpleasant by consuming the substance further.
  • Ignoring important work-related duties or quitting your job to consume substances.
  • Cancelling events and losing interest in hobbies because of substance use.
  • Intense cravings and a longing to consume substances every day.
  • Using substances even though they could have potentially caused or worsened health problems.
  • Continuing to use substances even though they have destroyed important relationships in your life.

Patients must fit the criteria to be diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder (SUD).

If they can identify with 2 or 3 of the symptoms listed this tends to show a mild SUD, 4-5 symptoms indicate a moderate SUD and 6 or more shows a severe SUD, otherwise known as an addiction. 

As well as its 11 criteria, the DSM-5 also diagnoses substance use disorder through 3 levels of severity.

This helps practitioners to determine the level of treatment that is required to help patients reach sobriety.

The ASAM criteria follow 6 dimensions to create an all-around assessment of an individual. It helps practitioners place, transfer, and discharge patients.

The six dimensions are:

  • Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication and Withdrawal Potential: The first dimension explores the client’s past and their experiences with substance use. It also includes experiences with withdrawal
  • Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions and Complications: The second dimension explores the client’s health history as well as their current mental and physical condition
  • Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioural, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications: The third dimension explores the client’s thoughts, mental health, and emotions they are feeling
  • Dimension 4: Readiness to Change: This fourth dimension determines the client’s readiness and interest in changing behaviours
  • Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use, or Continued Problem Potential: The fifth dimension explores the client’s relationship with relapsing and continued use of substances
  • Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment: The sixth, and final, dimension explores the client’s recovery and living situation. It also includes exploration of things such as social groups, friends, support networks etc

The AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) is a 10-question tool used to screen and identify an alcohol use disorder. Patients are asked to answer all 10 questions that are individually scored from 0-4. 

The questions are as follows:

  • How often do you have a drink containing alcohol? 
  • How many units of alcohol do you drink on a typical day when you are drinking? 
  • How often have you had 6 or more units if female or 8 or more if male, on a single occasion in the last year? 
  • How often during the last year have you found that you were not able to stop drinking once you had started? 
  • How often during the last year have you failed to do what was normally expected from you because of your drinking? 
  • How often during the last year have you needed an alcoholic drink in the morning to get yourself going after a heavy drinking session? 
  • How often during the last year have you had a feeling 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 or friend, doctor or other health worker been concerned about your drinking or suggested that you cut down?

Questions 1-3 focus on alcohol intake, 4-6 are about dependency and 7-10 about the consequences of alcoholism.

The AUDIT is scored out of 40 in total with a score of less than 8 acting as a slight cause for concern, and a score of over 13 indicating an alcohol dependency and a cause to seek professional treatment.

What is an intervention?

Therapy room

Attempting to help a loved one through addiction can be very challenging. You may feel heartbroken, lost, and don’t know where to turn to next. 

Hiring a professional interventionist can be a great way of facilitating an honest conversation with your loved one about their substance abuse. 

By calling our team today, we can help you facilitate an intervention by offering specialist resources and recommendations for interventionists in the Nottinghamshire area.

Interventions don’t have to be an old-fashioned sit-down where the individual feels somewhat attacked or overwhelmed.

Nowadays interventionists can offer guidance and advice to families. 

Families are often encouraged to learn more about the CRAFT method which sees loved ones rewarded for abstaining from substances.

The CRAFT method (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) is a non-confrontational approach to intervention and can help families learn how to communicate positively even at times when things aren’t going as envisioned.

By using positive reinforcement to focus on the things that work, it allows negative behaviour to impact them arguably even more so.

The CRAFT method focuses on developing awareness as a whole family and placing that as a priority.

How much does rehab cost in Nottinghamshire?


The price of rehab varies due to multiple factors such as:

  • The location in which you complete the treatment
  • The type of treatment you engage in
  • The length of your programme
  • If you choose luxury amenities such as a single occupancy room with en-suite.

For a 10-day sole detox, prices range from £3,000 to £6,000 if you were to book a single-occupancy room and around £2,000 to £4,000 for a dual or multi-occupancy room.

If you are looking for a comprehensive 28-day stay in a single occupancy room, prices begin at around £8,000 and can rise to £12,000.

Again, if you would prefer a multi-occupancy room you could expect to pay around £6,000.

For those who may not be able to commit to rehab due to the financial aspect, home detoxes are also an option. They are significantly cheaper and begin at around £1,500.

Why is private rehab advised?

Group therapy - teens - black and white

Private residential rehab is advised because it brings with it a whole host of benefits. Each client receives a tailored programme that suits their needs.

There is also a wide range of therapies to support a dual diagnosis, as well as aftercare for up to twelve months from when your programme ends.

Residential rehab can allow you to receive bespoke care at levels council-funded treatment just cannot provide. 

Whilst it may feel natural to begin your search for rehab with NHS services, they very rarely offer residential treatment places and ask patients to try home detoxes or outpatient programmes first.

For those facing severe addictions, this can be fatal.

With NHS treatments, the waitlists are very long meaning some clients end up waiting far too long to receive programme recommendations.

Council-funded treatment also fails to provide mental health support for those with substance use disorders often stating that patients have to be sober first.

Whilst NHS treatment is free and provided across most areas of the UK, private rehab can help you with immediate admission meaning you can achieve recovery as soon as possible.

Residential treatment can help shield you from temptations and triggers allowing you to rehabilitate in a safe, nurturing environment.

Whilst private rehab has a variety of benefits the downside for many prospective clients is the price.

Unfortunately, private rehab can be expensive, but this doesn’t mean you cannot access treatment. 

Nowadays many clinics offer payment plans, accept medical insurance, or will work with your budget to recommend treatment you can afford.

How long does rehab last in Nottinghamshire?

Drinking coffee

Clients tend to stay in rehab for around 28 days as this is deemed the most appropriate time needed to tackle old habits and lay the foundations for newer, healthier ones.

This is referred to as a short-term stay though it isn’t uncommon for clients to stay for around 90 days so that they can break all associations 

Some clients, usually ones who have been to rehab in the past, choose to re-enter to complete a 7 to 10-day detox if it is required. 

The length of your programme will be more accurately determined once you have completed your pre-admission assessment.

Call our team today on 0800 140 4690 for more information and to speak to a helpline adviser.

Alcohol detox and rehab in Nottinghamshire

Two people hugging

Rehab can also be a lifeline for those facing issues with alcohol. In the UK, alcohol disorders are harder for individuals to recognise within themselves due to the normality of drinking within society.

The mentality of ‘I can stop whenever I want’ often deters people from reaching out for professional help.

If you are facing an addiction to alcohol, attending rehab will most certainly be in your best interest.

Alcohol is physically and psychologically addictive which mean if left unmanaged can present fatal consequences. 

At rehab, your programme will begin with a Librium-based detox over 10 days. This can help to reduce withdrawal symptoms as well as anxiety.

Whilst detoxification is challenging for many clients, staff are on hand to help at all times and use medications to help ease any pain. 

After your detox is complete, most clients tend to complete a further 3 weeks in rehab to engage in therapy.

Therapy can help you to overcome the psychological side of your alcohol addiction and allow you to explore challenging thoughts and feelings. 

Attempting to do any of this on your own can be very dangerous to your health.

Alcohol withdrawals can be deadly if left untreated and even develop into alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) which requires immediate medical care to treat.

AWS typically occurs when someone who drinks heavily suddenly halts their consumption of alcohol.

This shock to the body causes complications such as anxiety, hallucinations, seizures, Delirium tremens and vomiting.

To avoid developing AWS, speak to a member of our team about your alcohol addiction today.

We offer zero judgement and promise to listen to all of your worries.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Can I detox from home?

head to head

Home detoxes are also a possibility for those facing alcoholism and are arranged by rehabilitation clinics.

Clients must first be approved by a psychiatrist to determine the severity of their issue and to assess the probability of them reaching recovery.

If successful, the correct dosage of Librium will be posted to the home address and clients are then required to check in daily with a member of staff.

This type of treatment is significantly cheaper than an inpatient programme but poses greater risks as there isn’t 24/7 medical supervision available. 

It is suitable for those who have a support network and are at a lower risk of developing any complications as a result of alcohol detoxification.

It is also worth noting that home detoxes are not the same as self-detoxes.

Self-detoxes are also referred to as going ‘cold turkey’ and can cause fatalities for those with very high dependencies on alcohol. 

They are not advised or recommended by Rehab 4 Addiction and prove futile to most people resulting in severe relapses.

Rehab for Cocaine in Nottinghamshire

It may currently feel like it is impossible to end your cocaine dependence, but with our help, we can recommend only the best clinics in your local area. 

Cocaine addiction experts will begin by offering specialist detoxes to help you overcome the physical side of your addiction.

After this, therapy will be offered such as 1:1 therapy, group therapy, and family therapy.

Many clinics also offer the 12-step model to help clients remain abstinent from future cocaine use.

Rehab for Heroin in Nottinghamshire

Group therapy - hands in air

Treating heroin addiction typically begins with a detox programme, followed by medication, therapy, and ongoing support.

Heroin can be one of the hardest substances to overcome, claiming thousands of lives every year.

The substance has very intense effects on the brain and its reward system, increasing feel-good chemicals that cause users to repeatedly take the drug. 

If you are struggling with heroin use, we urge you to reach out for help from medical professionals.

Residential rehab can help you break the chains of your addiction and begin a fresh chapter free from all substances.

Rehab for Cannabis in Nottinghamshire

People in circle holding hands

Although many people use cannabis for its health benefits, it is considered one of the most abused substances globally.

The THC compound found in cannabis causes users to exhibit poor judgement, fatigue, and increased blood pressure.

Over time, continuous use causes users to depend on the substance and want to consume more to achieve the same feelings of pleasure. 

If you feel that you are facing problems with cannabis use, inpatient services could be beneficial to you.

Choosing a residential facility can ensure you achieve the results you want in the time frame you want.

Don’t delay, reach out today.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

What therapies are on offer at Nottinghamshire?

Man with pen

The therapies offered to clients in rehab are tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Therapy helps clients treat the psychological side of addiction.

Some of the therapies available include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT): This is a talking therapy that helps clients to reframe negative thoughts and adjust thought patterns. 
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT): This involves locating the root or cause of addiction and accepting this reality. It helps clients find healthy ways to address their issues.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy involves meeting with a small group to talk openly about your problems. In this environment, other members listen and share stories that can help build peer solidarity.
  • Family therapy: This involves honest conversations to be facilitated between family members in a safe space.
  • Holistic therapy: This type of therapy involves treating the body and mind as one instead of focussing on certain aspects. It helps clients become more self-aware by offering sessions in mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.

Why is dual diagnosis treatment so important?

Female therapist with male

Dual diagnosis treatment is important because it understands the importance of treating both a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder such as bipolar disorder, anxiety, or schizophrenia. 

By opting for treatment through Rehab 4 Addiction, you can benefit from dual diagnosis treatment. 

Unfortunately, many mental health organisations refuse to treat patients with substance use disorders until they can prove sobriety.

This can be a very stressful cycle as mental health disorders can make it extremely difficult to overcome addiction without professional assistance. 

However, by opting for help via services like ours you can rest assured that you can find the treatment best suited to your physical and psychological needs.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

Relapse prevention planning


Relapse prevention planning is a vital part of your time at rehab and beyond.

Plans are put into place for each client to help decrease the risk of relapsing upon your return home.

These plans are written documents that are shared with your support group and outpatient treatment team.

They typically include triggers and coping mechanisms to help you manage challenges that may present in your new life.

Relapses don’t just happen sporadically. They typically occur as a three-part process that begins with an emotional relapse, followed by a mental relapse, and then a physical relapse. 

With a relapse prevention plan in place, you can acknowledge certain thoughts and feelings before a physical relapse happens.

Having a support network in place is also a crucial part of a relapse prevention plan as these are the people you will turn to during times of hardship.

Whether it be friends, family, colleagues, or peers from your clinic, having someone to talk to is very important and can help you remain sober.

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

What are the alternatives to rehab?

Walking outside

Sadly, not everyone can afford the cost of private rehabilitation. However, it is worth noting that there are free and accessible options to help you overcome your addiction.

A home detox, as described above, is a much more affordable option for those who may not be able to afford a complete 28-day stay away.

Whilst triggers and associations aren’t as avoidable, clients can still gain access to the medication on offer at a residential rehab.

There are also many council-led organisations such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as SMART Recovery which is a self-help service that guides people into recovery.

Outpatient treatment is also a possibility and can be a considerably cheaper option than a residential programme.

You will remain living at home during this treatment programme and attend daily sessions at a rehab clinic of your choice. 

This is also a great option for those who may be unable to commit to rehab due to other commitments in their personal life.

Al-Anon Family Group meetings are also available in the Nottinghamshire area to help the families of those with a loved one addicted to alcohol.
