Who is Drug & Alcohol Rehab Suitable for?

If you’re struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you might be questioning whether or not you qualify or are suitable for drug rehab and alcohol rehab.

The reality is that if you are drinking 30+ units of alcohol per day, then you will be considered suitable to attend an alcohol rehab centre.

Additionally, if you’re also struggling with mental health issues then you will be diagnosed with a dual diagnosis and alcohol rehab treatment in Somerset will be advised.

Please read the list below which highlights more reasons why someone might benefit from attending an alcohol rehab centre in Somerset.

  • If you are struggling with mental health problems alongside your addiction to drugs or alcohol. One might be making the other worse, resulting in a spiral and never-ending circle of abuse.
  • If you have ever had suicidal thoughts during intoxication, a ‘high,’ come down or withdrawal from drugs or alcohol.
  • If you have ever suffered from seizures caused by drinking too much alcohol
  • If you have ever suffered from Delirium tremens (also referred to as DTs) which is characterised by tremors, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, and insomnia.
  • If you have ever committed a crime or acted in a violent way against a loved one, colleague or friend whilst consuming alcohol or drugs.
  • If you have ever attempted to recover or detox previously and failed (whether that’s at home or in another detox and alcohol rehab centre)
  • If you have ever suffered from Wernicke’s Encephalopathy [1]. This is a potentially life-threatening illness that affects the nervous system, causing the individual to experience confusion, short term memory loss, nystagmus (involuntary and uncontrollable movements of the eyes) and difficulty in maintaining balance and coherent speech (ataxia) [1].

The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment has created the DSM-IV-TR Diagnostic Criteria [2] for anyone suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Professionals such as psychiatrists use this criterion to assess whether an individual is suitable and ready to attend a detox and rehab centre.

The criteria points are categorised into abuse and dependency.

They define substance abuse as a pattern of consuming an addictive substance that leads to a state of distress over a 12-month period [2].

They define substance dependence as a pattern of consuming a substance that leads to distress which causes three or more of the following criteria over 12 months [2].

  • Tolerance (needing to consume more than previously needed to achieve the desired effect or no longer feeling the desired effect as easily as you once previously did).
  • Withdrawal (experiencing withdrawal symptoms or consuming the drug or substance to avoid experiencing withdrawal symptoms)
  • Consuming large amounts of the addictive substance
  • Unsuccessful attempts to stop abusing the substance
  • Going to great efforts to get your hands on the addictive substance
  • Ignoring and cancelling important plans and events to consume the drug
  • Continuing to consume the drug even though you are aware of the mental and physical harm it is doing

The Drug Detox & Rehab Admissions Process in Somerset

If you’re thinking of attending an alcohol rehab centre in the Somerset area, then continue reading to find out what the admissions process might look like for you.

Once you get in contact with the team at Rehab 4 Addiction, the team will work to understand what kind of alcohol rehab treatment options are best suited to your addiction and current situation.

Professionals will use The ASAM Criteria to gain an understanding of an individual’s addiction state and assess what types of treatment would be best [3].

The ASAM Criteria has 6 dimensions [3] which professionals will explore, including:

Dimension 1 – Intoxication and Potential of Withdrawal

The team will ask questions about your addiction, asking you how long you’ve been addicted and to which drugs. This is to gain an understanding of the extent of your addiction and whether or not there’s been an attempt to detox in the past.

Dimension 2 – An Individual’s Current and Previous Health

It’s also important that the team gain a good understanding of your current and previous health conditions to evaluate your current health and physical needs.

Dimension 3 – Cognitive, Emotional and Behavioural Mental State

The team will ask you a range of questions to understand your current and previous mental state. It’s important to assess your current state to identify if you have any mental health problems alongside your addiction.

Dimension 4 – Commitment to Get Better

Your commitment to recovery is one of the main determining factors that will influence whether or not you are successful.

Dimension 5 – Continued Use and Potential to Relapse After Treatment 

The team will try and gain an understanding of your relapse history so that a specific and personalised relapse prevention plan can be put in place for you.

Dimension 6 – Home Life and Environment After Being Released from Treatment

The team will also ask you about your home situation. This includes what type of accommodation you currently live in, who you live with and whether you’re surrounded by any triggers.

This is to ensure that upon your release from alcohol rehab treatment you will be in a positive and motivational environment.

Additionally, the DSM [4] advises that there are currently three levels of severity that can be used to inform how severe someone’s addiction currently is.

The three levels include:

  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Severe

These levels depend on how many symptoms of addiction are present.

For example, a mild addiction usually presents one symptom, whereas a moderate addiction level would display two symptoms. A severe addiction would display three or more symptoms [4].

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs) in rehab

Another way in which healthcare professionals can assess an individual and their addiction is through the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, often referred to as an AUDIT. [5].

The AUDIT consists of a total of 10 questions about your alcohol use and the consequences of consuming so much alcohol.

Originally developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) it’s known to be a very comprehensive tool and is used throughout the UK by many professionals [5].

The scoring system allows you to answer:

  • Never
  • Monthly or less
  • 2 – 4 times every month
  • 2 – 3 times every week
  • 4 or more times every week

Questions 1 – 3 revolve around how you consume the drug [5]:

  • How often do you drink alcohol?
  • How many units of alcohol do you consume when you are drinking alcohol?
  • How often have you drank more than 6 units (if you’re a female) and how often do you drink 8 units (if you’re a male) on one occasion in the last 12 months?

Questions 4 – 6 all revolve around your dependency on the substance. The questions in this section include [5]:

  • How often in the last 12 months have you found yourself not being able to stop consuming alcohol once you started?
  • How often in the last 12 months have you struggled and failed to keep to your responsibilities because of your addiction?
  • How often in the last 12 months have you felt like you needed to consume alcohol in order to get up and ready in the mornings after having drunk a lot the night before?

Finally, questions 7 – 10 will concern the consequences of your addiction. They include [5]:

  • How often in the last 12 months have you felt guilty or regretted a drinking session?
  • How often in the last 12 months have you failed to remember what happened the night before because you were intoxicated?
  • Have you or anyone you’ve been with ever injured or hurt yourself whilst intoxicated or because of your drinking?
  • Has a family member, friend or healthcare professional ever expressed concern about your drinking or ever spoken to you about cutting back on your drinking?

Once you’ve completed your test, if the total score adds up to more than 13 points, then it would suggest that you are dependent on alcohol. A score greater than 8 is a reason to be concerned [5].

Pre-rebab Steps: Intervention before addiction treatment

Group therapy - teens - black and white

An intervention is when a family member, friend, colleague or loved one forms a plan to help an individual get the help they need for their addiction.

In its simplest form, an intervention is when loved ones form a meeting in a calm, comforting and caring environment with the individual suffering, highlight the problem and concern and discuss treatment options.

If your friend or loved one is refusing treatment for their addiction, then an intervention can be a great way of highlighting their destructive behaviour and its consequences.

By holding an intervention, also gives you time to formulate a treatment plan for the individual.

By having this ready, you’ll be able to advise on the best treatment options for them, the benefits of attending treatment and the process.

It’s also always a great idea to inform an intervention team of your plan so that they can ensure that a professional interventionist can be present.

By being present at the intervention, the specialist will be able to ensure that the conversation stays on the right track.

It will also ensure that all treatment options suggested to the individual are appropriate and discussed in a calm and measured way.

Community Reinforce and Family Training (CRAFT) is a fantastic way for family members and loved ones of someone suffering from an addiction to learning about how to hold an intervention in the right way.

For example, it’s a great tool if a loved one is struggling to admit or identify that they have a problem in the first place [6].

Using the CRAFT approach usually involves family members, and other loved ones using positive reinforcement when the individual refrains from using and repercussions when the individual does use.

A large part of the CRAFT method and one of its hardest aspects is allowing your loved one to fail. Watching them fail to remain sober is hard to watch.

However, you should be assured that falling and getting back up is good for them and will help them build character strength in the long run.

How Much Does Rehab Treatment Centres Cost in Somerset?

rehab - outside photo of exterior building

The cost of rehab depends on a number of factors including which type of centre you choose, how long you stay there for and what type of room you decide to opt for.

Thankfully, these days there are lots of different options for different budgets.

For example, to stay in a rehab centre for 10 days (in a private, single room) then the price could cost anywhere between £3,000 and £6,000.

However, if you chose to stay in a shared room with another individual then the price is cheaper, at around £2,000 – £4,000.

However, if you chose to stay in rehab for a total of 28 days, then the cost is closer to £8,000 – £12,000 (for a single room) and £6,000 (for a shared room).

Some people may decide that they want to attempt a home detox. Whilst they do work for some people, it’s important to remember that you won’t have access to the same support and help as you would at residential rehab.

Home detoxes cost approximately £1,500.

Private Rehab VS Council Funded Rehab Treatment

Therapy room

It’s important to understand that there aren’t solely NHS run drug and alcohol centres in the UK.

Private centres contain reserved spaces for individuals needing that space for NHS funded treatment.

However, the funding the NHS receives is very limited these days. Therefore, this has had a huge effect on the private centres that have previously relied on NHS funded patients using their alcohol rehab facilities.

This is important to understand when debating whether or not you want to attend private or NHS funded rehab, and there are also a number of pros and cons to both.

Rehabs such as Whitecross House and Broadway Lodge may be able to offer council-funded rehab, however, the application process is known to be lengthy, and funding may ultimately be withheld.

Pros of Attending Private Rehab

  • You will receive help immediately and will be fast-tracked down any waiting line
  • You will receive 24/7 care and support
  • You will receive around the clock care when it becomes time for your drug detox
  • You will also receive therapy from a professional to help you identify your triggers
  • You will get a chance to remove yourself from triggers and negative influences at home
  • You will learn how to prevent yourself from relapsing in the fut7ure
  • You will also receive aftercare support

Cons of Attending Private Rehab

  • It’s not affordable and therefore accessible for everyone
  • If you’re able to choose whatever rehab centre you want, then you’re more likely to be overwhelmed by the choice

Pros of NHS Funded Rehab

  • It’s completely free of charge
  • It’s just as confidential as a private rehab
  • It’s accessible to everyone
  • You will attend rehab in a local centre
  • You will also be close to home and therefore family and friends

Cons of NHS Funded Rehab

  • There is no guarantee that you will gain a place at a rehab centre, even if you tick all of the boxes and meet all of the criteria
  • You will be on a long waiting list
  • The NHS deals with and treats mental health issues separately to drug and alcohol addiction. You will therefore have to be treated separately
  • You are more likely to have less one to one time with a therapist

Criteria for Substance Use Disorder in DSM-5

Female therapist with male

The DSM-5 [7] has recently adapted their text, list of substances and criteria.

They provide a comprehensive list of substance use disorders and what factors need to exist in order to diagnose an individual with that substance use disorder [7].

Substance Use Disorders have three classifications, including mild, moderate and severe.

How an individual will classify depends on how many criteria factors they meet.

There are a total of 11 criteria factors, including:

  • Tolerance: If an individual has become increasingly tolerant to the substance so that they have to consume increasing amounts in order to achieve the same effect or ‘high’ that they once did.
  • Cravings: If an individual frequently experiences cravings for the addictive substance
  • Hazardous use: An individual consumes the substance even though it’s causing negative consequences and danger to herself or others.
  • Neglect: An individual has started to neglect their needs and responsibilities.
  • Social Problems: Their substance abuse has started to create conflict in their social life
  • Withdrawal: The individual starts to experience withdrawal substances when they stop using the substance
  • Having to consume more for longer: The individual starts to consume more of the substance for longer
  • Frequent attempts to stop: The individual has tried to stop or control their substance use but have failed
  • Physical and mental problems due to addiction: The individual now has mental or physical issues due to their addiction. This could include liver disease, depression or anxiety.
  • Increased time spent consuming: The individual spends a considerable amount of time-consuming the substance.
  • Quitting activities: They have stopped attending or taking part in activities that they once loved doing

If you meet 2-3 of the criteria factors above, then it’s believed that you have a mild substance abuse disorder. If you meet 4-5 of the above criteria, then you have a moderate substance use disorder.

However, if you meet 6 or more of the above criteria, then it’s believed that you have a severe substance use disorder and must seek help from professionals [7].

How Long Does Rehab Last?

Industrial bedroom with dark wooden floors

Everyone’s experience at rehab is different, and there is not one single length of treatment that suits and fits all.

Nevertheless, it is suggested that if you are able to stay in rehab for a substantial period of time, then you’re more likely to overcome your addiction.

In general terms, most people stay at a rehab centre for a total of 28 – 90 days, which also shows to be most effective [8].

However, this does differ a lot depending on the substance the individual is addicted to.

By staying at the rehab centre for an extended period of time like this, you will be given the opportunity to receive in-depth therapy and focus on your long term recovery by receiving relapse prevention therapy.

It is advised that individuals stay in rehab for a minimum of 7 days.

Alcohol Detox & Rehab in Somerset

Massage

It is important to understand that anyone who enters a rehab centre with a substance use disorder will be expected to complete a detox and alcohol rehab programme.

Unfortunately, this also means going through unpleasant and harsh withdrawal symptoms.

These symptoms include feeling frequently tired and agitated, feeling sick, restless, irritable, excessive vomiting and sweating and a lot more.

As you can gather, experiencing these symptoms is very challenging for someone who’s already vulnerable.

That’s why it’s best to undergo your detox in a safe, controlled and calm environment.

By providing around the clock, 24 / 7 care, you’ll feel confident in the knowledge that you’re going to overcome your withdrawal symptoms and rid your body of the toxic substance.

Healthcare professionals will be able to provide you with both physical and psychological help.

One popular way healthcare professionals are able to provide help and support medically is by medicating Librium, a benzodiazepine-based detox medication often used to help calm and sedate individuals suffering from anxiety.

It works by regulating the neurotransmitters that are often affected when an individual starts to withdraw from alcohol or drugs.

It’s often used at the start of an individual’s detoxification programme, so is generally only needed for the first 10 days of an individual’s detox in order to reduce the risk of dangerous seizures.

Once these initial first few days are complete, it’s advised that individuals stay in rehab for a longer period of time.

Now that the body is rid of the addictive substance, they will now spend the rest of their time acknowledging, identifying and dealing with their triggers.

It’s highly important that individuals dedicate time to identifying these triggers so that once they leave rehab, they will be able to form coping strategies to avoid and overcome them.

According to the NIH (National Institute of Health), there are two main types of triggers. These are external and internal triggers [9].

External Triggers [9]

This includes places, things or certain times or events when you might have been tempted to consume alcohol or drugs in the past.

Internal Triggers [9]

This includes feeling anxious, frustrated, angry, sad, nervous or depressed.

The Risks of an Unmanaged Alcohol Withdrawal 

Two people hugging

It is highly advised that you undergo your withdrawal from Alcohol in a rehab setting.

This is because if withdrawal symptoms go unmanaged by healthcare professionals, then they can have some serious and potentially life-threatening consequences.

Once you start your withdrawal from alcohol, you can start to experience symptoms as quickly as 6 hours.

These initial symptoms include:

  • Tremors
  • Feeling increasingly anxious
  • Struggling to sleep
  • Feeling restless
  • And feeling like you want to be physically sick [10].

However, more serious and problematic symptoms can occur. It is believed that these more serious symptoms occur in around 10% of sufferers.

This could be anything from a hot fever, to excessive shaking, sweating and breathing [10].

Delirium Tremens (DT)

If an individual attempts to withdraw from an addictive substance alone, without the help of medical professionals, then they might run into complications like DT.

DT is when an individual experiences confusion, hallucinations and disorientation.

This can develop as quickly as 1 – 4 days after first withdrawing from the addictive substance and can be potentially very harmful [10].

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome is very similar to dementia.

It is often caused by drinking excessive alcohol and a deficiency of nutrition in the body. It usually occurs during withdrawal from alcohol and can be devastating for individuals suffering from the disease [10].

This is why it’s extremely important to withdraw from addictive substances in a controlled environment where your symptoms will be closely monitored.

Alcohol Home Detox in Somerset

For some individuals, the idea of inpatient alcohol rehab and detox is just too much.

Most rehab centres offer an ‘at-home’ detox programme. It’s important to understand that you will receive medical help under this form of treatment.

In order to qualify for an at-home detox programme, you must be drinking less than 30 units per day.

Medication (such as Librium discussed previously) will be posted out to the individual.

You will be closely monitored and assessed by healthcare professionals every day over the phone.

At-home detox is a great option for those struggling to afford inpatient alcohol detox, as it’s considerably cheaper.

However, it is important to note that it is not as safe or successful as a detox programme in an alcohol rehab centre.

However, it is a great option for those who already have support at home, or for those who are deemed low risk.

Rehab for Cocaine in Somerset

Cocaine is one of the most highly addictive drugs there is. It is extremely hard to feel pleasure without consuming the drug once you start taking it, and it chemically changes the way your brain perceives pleasure.

Addiction to cocaine results in many psychological symptoms.

However, unlike alcohol and other drugs such as heroin and other opiates, there are no physical withdrawal symptoms experienced when you stop consuming and abusing cocaine.

Attending rehab for cocaine will mean that a lot of attention is put on your psychological rehabilitation and state of mind.

Rehab for Heroin rehab in Somerset

head to head

Like cocaine, heroin is highly addictive. However, unlike cocaine and more like alcohol, abusing heroin can cause serious harm to your body and physical health.

Therefore, it’s important to undergo a detox from heroin before pursuing any other forms of treatment.

This way any withdrawal symptoms will be treated in a controlled environment.

After undergoing your detoxification and rehab programme, you will then need to undergo therapy in the form of private therapy sessions, group therapy sessions, CBT therapy and relapse prevention.

Rehab for Cannabis in Somerset

Group holding leafs

Despite an increasingly large number of people using cannabis in a recreational sense, cocaine use does lead to negative consequences.

Cannabis abuse leads to feeling paranoid and anxious, as well as experiencing depression, immune issues, respiratory issues and general dissatisfaction with life.

Similar to cocaine, cannabis is not physically addictive in that your body will not crave the drug. It is purely psychological.

Therefore, it is not necessary to undergo a detox from cannabis, but you will be required to undergo treatment in the form of therapy.

Types of Therapies On Offer in Somerset Alcohol Rehab Centres

Group therapy - hands in air

In today’s world, there are a large number of types of therapies on offer in most alcohol rehab centres. These treatment options include, but are not limited to:

Cognitive behavioural therapy 

Cognitive behavioural therapy (also referred to as CBT) is a type of therapy that is used to change the way in which you frame certain thoughts or situations. It’s used throughout the industry to treat a range of issues such as anxiety, depression and addiction.

CBT acknowledges that your feelings, emotions and actions are all interlinked and that sometimes it becomes hard to acknowledge your deep-rooted emotions and potential triggers [11].

Dialectical behavioural therapy

DBT is similar to CBT in many ways. However, this form of treatment aims to treat individuals who experience their emotions very intensely.

It was developed in order to treat those with a borderline personality disorder but is now used to treat a large number of people with a range of issues.

DBT tries to help you overcome your negative emotions by acknowledging and then accepting them. You will be encouraged to find a balance between accepting these emotions and making positive changes to overcome them, too.

Brief interventions

A brief intervention is a concise and structured conversation with a professional about your alcohol or drug consumption.

They are used in the early stages of an individual’s addiction and are used as the first step to determine whether or not an individual is capable of stopping on their own [12].

Motivational interviewing

Often referred to as MI, motivational interviewing uses the individual’s hopes and strengths in an attempt to motivate the individual to want to change.

According to the Royal College of Nursing [13], there are four principles used in MI. Including:

  • Resisting the urge to change the person’s path
  • Understanding the persons ‘why’ and reasons for wanting to change
  • Listening to the individual properly and deeply
  • Empowering the person suffering to realise that they have the potential to change

Holistic therapies

Some alcohol rehab centres also use holistic therapies to treat addictions. These holistic therapies and activities could include swimming, playing music, painting, drawing or physical exercise and art therapy.

Group therapy

Humans are inherently social creatures. That’s why group therapy is a very helpful and successful tool when treating substance use disorders.

Whilst at rehab, you will be given the opportunity to attend group therapy with like-minded individuals who will be able to help, support and advise you on your journey.

Individual therapy 

You will also be given the opportunity to attend one to one rehab with a professional. This could be CBT therapy or another form of talking therapy. It’s important to remember that anything you discuss in these one-to-one, private therapy sessions is confidential.

Family therapy

If you struggle with triggers at home, particularly involving friends or family, then you might be advised to attend family therapy.

This is where family members and loved ones will be invited to the therapy session, where all participants will be encouraged to discuss how they feel and how they can help.

This will ensure that you will receive the right kind of help and support when you leave rehab.

Co-dependency treatment

Some individuals are codependent when they feel overly attached and dependent on another individual. They also need other people to depend on them.

Typical traits of someone who’s co-dependent is someone who has very low self-esteem, feels the need to continually look after the other individual and struggles with control and boundary issues.

Treatment for co-dependency often involves CBT therapy and helps people learn how to say no and create better boundaries for themselves.

Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF)

The Twelve- Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF) is a treatment that aims to motivate an individual to seek help from 12-step self-help groups.

This is actively promoted due to the high success rates of many 12-step self-help groups [14].

Please call our 24-Hour Helpline: 0800 140 4690

The importance of Dual Diagnosis for Co-occurring Disorders at Rehab

At an alcohol rehab centre, individuals will also receive treatment for a dual diagnosis.

A dual diagnosis is when an individual who is already suffering from a substance use disorder is also suffering from other mental health disorders.

These disorders include paranoia, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar and anxiety.

For those individuals suffering from a dual diagnosis, their recovery and treatment will require more attention than those without [15].

In terms of diagnosis, structured interviews with a mental health professional have proven to be most effective [15].

Relapse Prevention Planning at Rehab

Whilst at rehab, individuals will receive a tailored relapse prevention plan.

Relapse prevention treatment involves four main principles. Firstly, that an individual relapses gradually. Secondly, that recovery is also a gradual process with certain milestones.

Thirdly, that treatment will revolve around CBT and other forms of therapy. Finally, that there are a number of rules that will need to be followed in order to successfully remain sober [16].

The Alternatives to Going to Rehab

Rehab-house

For those individuals who are unable or unwilling to attend rehab, there are other options available.

AA or Narcotics Anonymous

For example, self-help groups such as the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and Narcotics Anonymous are a great way to seek professional help without attending rehab.  AA meetings and NA meetings take place at community centres across in Somerset.

However, if you decide that attending an AA or Narcotics Anonymous meeting isn’t for you, then you should consider attending a SMART Recovery meeting.

SMART Meetings

Unlike the AA, SMART meetings are based on 4 step process. These 4 steps are:

  • Motivation to change
  • Coping with cravings
  • Managing your emotions and behaviours
  • Living a healthier, more balanced life

Attending a SMART meeting is a great option for those individuals who believe they are capable of motivating and managing their own recovery and addiction.

Home Drug Detox and Alcohol Detox

Those who don’t want to enter a residential alcohol rehab programme might be interested in doing a home detox.

This involves receiving treatment and medication over the phone and in the post from healthcare professionals.

Home drug detox is not to be confused with self-help, where you receive no form of treatment at all.

Al-Anon Family Group Meetings

Al-Anon is great support for those family members and loved ones affected by an individual addiction.

There are over 700 Al-Anon group sessions over the UK and you will be welcomed in by a group of individuals who understand and care.

It’s recommended that you attend a minimum of 6 meetings in order to feel the benefit of attending an Al-Anon meeting.

Outpatient Rehab Treatment Programmes Via a Local Drug & Alcohol Team in Somerset

There is a wide range of outpatient treatments in the Somerset area.

Most alcohol rehab centres offer outpatient treatment, where an individual can live their normal day to day life whilst also receiving treatment.

Outpatient treatment offers the individual as much flexibility as possible whilst also allowing them the highest care possible without distributing their day to day routine.

Like residential alcohol rehab, you will also receive therapy and counselling, as well as frequent check-ups.
