In this section, we provide help and advice around the topic of mental health. Protecting your mental health should be a life-goal, and seeking out help for mental health issues could be the most important decision you ever make.
Alcoholism is a chronic illness, affecting over a million people in the UK alone. In this section, we provide resources to help you better understand this illness, and what to do if you or a loved one are affected by alcoholism.
If the answer is ‘yes’, then we’re here to help. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we have been helping people find treatment for decades. Our drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey offer great rehab services.
We know it can be hard to find the right Surrey rehab centre for your needs. Our advisors can guide you through this process via an initial assessment. We answer any questions you have before, during, and after your treatment.
The rehab clinic is situated in a rural location with beautiful surrounds. Here, you may enjoy the Surrey countryside, well away from temptations available in cities and towns. This environment affords you maximum privacy.
All rooms are single occupancy. Your room is also equipped with ensuite facilities. An on-site gymnasium means you will be able to maintain your fitness activities during your rehab treatment.
In the video below, we provide information about the rehab process:
Because the rehab is located in a rural area, you will be able to engage in a range of holistic therapies such as equine therapy, countryside walks, bike rides and outdoor meditation. You will be able to bask in an abundance of fresh air well away from the stresses of “city life”.
The rehab clinic has employed a number of holistic and alternative therapy practitioners who are able to melt away all the stress you bring when you admitted into rehab clinic. The clinic does, of course, also employ medical staff to administer the detox you may require when you are first admitted into the rehab’s care.
We offer two types of rehab treatment in Surrey: inpatient, and outpatient. Below, we outline the difference between the two:
At residential drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey, patients stay on-site, both during the night and day. This may achieve effective results compared to other forms of treatment, simply because you are removed from temptation.
A team of medical staff watch over you at all times. This team can provide you with the medication you need. They can deal with your withdrawal symptoms.
A team of therapists will handle the mental side of addiction. Every day you will go through therapy and meditation to help heal your mind.
Each inpatient Surrey rehab centre is very well-equipped. They provide good food and good facilities. Facilities include holistic therapy rooms and beautiful grounds.
Another treatment option in Surrey is ‘outpatient’ recovery. This is where patients come to a clinic for a few hours each day for treatment.
Patients should detox before going to an outpatient clinic in Surrey. At the clinic, they will receive counselling and therapy sessions. Outpatient treatment is good for those who are on a budget. It can also be good for those who cannot afford to take much time off work.
Knowing when to go to drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey can be hard. If your substance abuse is hurting your work life and home life, it may be time.
At our drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey, you receive 24/7 medical care. We will look after you through this difficult time.
Taking this sort of step can be scary. But if things have got worse, Surrey alcohol rehab might be the only choice.
Here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you decide. Be honest with yourself, and try to answer these questions frankly:
Do you drive while intoxicated or under substances?: Not only can this behaviour be dangerous for you, but also for other road members. And being unable to control whether you drive intoxicated or not is a sign that you might need to enter rehab
Is your health suffering as a result of the substance/alcohol intake?: Alcoholism can negatively impact several internal organs, as can various other substances. When your health is taking a toll, rehab should be considered. This can be any clear sign from increased heart rate, trouble sleeping, breathlessness, constant headaches, and any ailments you incur to your body while under the influence
Is your social life suffering? Are you losing contact with family or friends due to alcohol/substance abuse?: Another indicator of this is that friends or family keep telling you to stop this destructive behaviour. These are the people who know you best, and who are aware that your behaviour is not you – it is the substance taking control. It is always easy to hide in your shell and deny you have a problem – this is because your use of substances and behaviour has become normalized to you, a part of your everyday life. Listen to others and let them help you – realise that your behaviour is only going to end up hurting you and them
Do you experience withdrawal symptoms after you stop drinking or taking drugs?: Withdrawal symptoms include nausea, headaches, tremors, insomnia, paranoia, irritability, and other visible symptoms. That is a telling factor that your body cannot cope without these substances and something needs to be done about it.
Have you lost your personal freedom due to substance abuse?: If you are under parole or even been in jail, it’s time to stop. When we lose control over alcohol, disregard for the law or certain rules is one of the clear signs
Are you harming yourself or others when under influence?: Research indicates that those who suffer from alcohol or drug abuse are more likely to cause harm to themselves (indirectly or directly) and unfortunately, are more likely to become part of a suicide statistic. Substance abuse always affects the body in an unnatural and negative way. Stop now before it’s too late
Is your career suffering as a result of the abuse?: Have you recently lost your job? When battling substance abuse, it is extremely difficult to commit to professional obligations. This is a common occurrence among many in the addiction and recovery community. This is not your fault – you are ill, and you need help
Have you tried to quit but failed before?: A big indicator of addiction and the need to go to rehab is denial. People who are addicted often downplay their consumption, and often remark ‘I could stop if I wanted to.’ The stark reality is, cessation of drugs and alcohol after prolonged abuse is not easy. This is where we can help
The price of drug and alcohol rehab varies depending upon the centres you select, the amount of time you stay at the rehab and whether you opt to sleep in a single or multiple occupancy room. Fortunately, there are a range of options.
If you opt for a 10-day detox with a single occupancy room, then prices range from £3,000-£6,000. Prices for a multi-occupancy room vary from £2,000-£4,000.
If you wish to stay at rehab for 28-days, then expect to pay around £8,000-£12,000 for a single occupancy room, or around £6,000 for a multi-occupancy room.
If you wish to undergo a home detox, then you may save money, but you will not be shielded from temptations. However, home detoxes do work for many people.
Expect to pay around £1,500 for a home detox. We may inform you of exact prices of rehabs in your local area. Please contact our helpline today for more information.
What Sort of Addictions Do We Treat at Our Rehab Facilities in Surrey?
At our alcohol and drug rehabs in Surrey, we treat lots of addictions. This includes alcohol and drug addictions. It also includes gambling and gaming. Our medical experts have treated nearly every addiction under the sun.
Here are the addictions that we treat at our rehabs in Surrey:
What Sort of Therapies Can I Access During Rehab in Surrey?
Our inpatient rehab centres in Surrey provide a range of therapies.
Every person in recovery is different. A form of therapy which works for one, may not work for another. That’s why our centres create treatment plans for your personal needs.
Here are some therapies you’ll have access to during drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: The goal of CBT is to challenge your existing patterns of thought and replace them with positive ones that will help you overcome addiction. Your thinking patterns are crucial and determine your behaviours, so it’s important to shift them to help you stay away from temptations in the long-term. CBT might be done as both individual or group sessions. In many ways, CBT is the foundational piece of our treatment and is one of the staples of modern psychology
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy: DBT is very similar to CBT, and it draws a lot from it. The goal of DBT is to help the patient realise things they can and cannot change, and shifting their minds to change things they can change. It’s a supportive therapy that helps the patient discover their strengths and use them to fight the addiction. DBT is usually done as a collaboration between the patient and the therapist. They try to work out together what the patient’s strengths are and shift their behaviour in such a way that they avoid the temptations
12 Step Therapy: The 12 step therapy is aimed towards creating a spiritual foundation with the help of which the patient is able to recover from addiction. In many ways, this 12 step therapy is a guide that helps the patients live a better life, not just overcome the addiction
Group Therapy: One of the benefits of inpatient treatment is the group of people who you will form friendships with that will inevitably enhance your recovery experience. These individuals are in a similar boat to you, and therefore feelings of judgement and a lack of understanding go out with window. Group therapy is highly beneficial as it brings the group together, and makes individuals realise they are not alone in their suffering
The rehab process has three stages. The first starts with you. During this phase, we will create a treatment programme for your needs.
We discuss the stages in more detail below:
We discuss the stages in more detail below:Rehab 4 Addiction maintains a relationship with residential drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey. Upon arrival into the drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey, patients receive a comprehensive physical and psychiatric examination. This examination is conducted by the centre’s psychiatrist. The psychiatrist is a medical doctor able to prescribe medications designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms during detox
Detox – eliminating substances from the body: Detoxification is initiated during the first weeks of drug & alcohol rehabs. Patients receiving treatment in a residential centre are taken care of by a team of medical professionals. The medical staff observe and treat painful withdrawal symptoms. Patients’ food, housekeeping and laundry are taken care of by the centre’s support staff. Patients’ focus is therefore solely centred on recovery goals.
Rehabilitation – treating the mental aspect of addiction: Once detox concludes patients now attend therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions are conducted by a rotating staff of in-house counsellors and therapists. Therapy attempts to treat the mental aspect of drug and/or alcohol addiction. Patients attend one-on-one counselling sessions. Sessions also take place in group settings thus allowing patients to interact with others who are struggling with addiction, and thus learn valuable lessons from one another. Typical therapy methods employed include ‘cognitive behavioural therapy’ and ‘acceptance & commitment therapy’
What Does a Typical Day in Surrey Rehab Look Like?
Inpatient treatment in our Surrey rehab centres follows a solid routine. The wake-up time is at 7 am. This is also when the nurses give out medication for the day.
Then there may be some private time to check on how patients are doing. This may be followed by some yoga or meditation.
Next comes breakfast. Skilled cooks prepare all the meals. They cook food that is rich in nutrients, vitamins, proteins and healthy fats. They serve food every day during your treatment.
After breakfast, it’s time for one-to-one therapy. These sessions can last between 45 and 90 minutes and might include CBT and DBT. After this, residents will have some free time to walk around the grounds or do fitness classes. Then comes a healthy lunch.
After lunch, the residents might attend group therapy sessions. This is where the patients can discuss their addiction and support each other. After these therapies, clients might attend art or music therapies.
Then comes dinner, and after that, some time to discuss things with peers in the group. Before bed, residents can enjoy some reading or meditation. A good night’s sleep is perfect for healing the mind and body.
What Does the Detox Process Include in Surrey Rehab?
The detox process is the first stage of your recovery, and most people struggle. This is why you chose our expert residential centres in Surrey. We have decades of experience in treating a wealth of residents. Here is what you can expect from the detox process:
Day One: During the first day, you’ll get acquainted with everyone at the clinic: the staff, the doctors, the nurses, and other patients. You’ll be introduced to your room where you’ll stay during rehab. After that, you’ll have the ability to discuss your rehab and express your concerns in more detail. A medical examination follows, where the doctors will make a check-up on your physical and mental wellbeing. This will help them determine the course of action that needs to be taken. Then, a plan will be made specifically for you. Then, the detox can begin. You’ll be prescribed certain medications that will allow you to start the detox. After that, you may leave for home to continue with outpatient treatment or stay for inpatient treatment
Day 2-5: This is when the detox will happen, and you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms. We’ll provide everything you need during this period: from support, to care, healthy eating, various programmes for your health such as yoga or fitness programmes. Sleep is of the essence here. This is perhaps the roughest period; but once you get through it, it will get better
Day 7+: After 7-10 days of detox, the body should be free of toxins. Now you are ready to continue with treatment and therapies. You’ll be taught how to stay sober in the real world. It must be noted however that Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome can weeks or months after cessation of an addictive substance
