When you choose Rehab 4 Addiction for Wales-based drug or alcohol treatment you receive the care and professionalism that’s essential for getting you well and reversing the ill effects of alcoholism and drug addiction.
We believe addiction is a disease that’s curable when the correct combination of detoxification and therapy is utilised. This approach ensures you simultaneously attack the physical and psychological causes of drug and alcohol addiction.
We believe this approach ensures you receive a well-rounded rehabilitation for your drug and alcohol addiction.
All rehabs in Wales we work with are regulated and regularly inspected by Care Inspectorate Wales.
These varied therapy techniques are offered by our partner residential and outpatient treatment centres in Wales. All of our partner rehab centres offer structured therapy sessions to suit your particular needs.
All centres are regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
The overall aim of drug and alcohol treatment in Wales is to ensure you the patient withdraw from these substances in a safe and controlled manner. All rehabilitation programmes are planned with precision before you attend a treatment centre.
A thorough assessment takes place before your treatment begins. The assessment seeks to collect as much relevant information regarding your addiction as possible.
We seek to determine the extent of your addiction, as well as details regarding any possible prior treatment you may have sought in the past for your addition.
When your detox begins, we monitor your withdrawal symptoms closely. A psychiatrist may write up a prescription of Librium or Diazepam. You also receive daily supplements of thiamine or alternatively a vitamin B injection.
This helps restore vitamin B levels in the brain since drug and alcohol addiction strip the brain of this essential vitamin. You may also be prescribed Acamprosate or Naltrexone if you are addicted to an opiate such as heroin or methadone.
These drugs reduce withdrawal symptoms typically experienced during detox.
Our partner rehab clinics in Wales employ expert nurses and support workers who will monitor your progress throughout the ‘acute’ detox period.
Detox typically requires around five days to complete, although we insist you remain in our care for a further five days at the very least so that we may monitor your progress.
We offer a handy guide to the alcohol detox process here.
Following detoxification, many patients remain in our care for up to around twenty-eight days. This allows enough time for full rehabilitation to take place.
The rehabilitation phase of rehab naturally follows on from detoxification. Rehabilitation includes a range of modern therapy techniques. These therapies help you identify and overcome your emotional triggers of addiction.
You are also armed with many relaxation and stress management techniques that help you fight the urge to return to drug or alcohol use.
Once your rehabilitation programme draws to a conclusion, we make sure your needs are met once you return home. We achieve this aim by providing you with a fully tailored relapse prevention and aftercare plan.
This includes weekly aftercare sessions provided on an outpatient basis.
You can learn more about aftercare here.
Going to rehab isn’t the easiest choice you will likely make this year. You may wonder if going to rehab really is the most suitable option. When helping people answer this question, we make use of the DMS-5’s guidance in determining the severity of the addiction.
If you feel you are experiencing five or more of the below symptoms of addiction, then your addiction may be considered sufficiently severe to warrant a stay at a residential rehab clinic:
Residential rehab treatment at a private clinic is not free. The typical price of a 10-day rehab is around £3,000. It is entirely true that not everyone in need of treatment is in a financial position to pay for this treatment.
One more affordable option is to undergo a detox from home. A typical alcohol detox costs around £1500. You will be given the same medications available at a residential rehab. However, you must meet certain criteria before this is offered. At Rehab 4 Addiction, we are able to organise a home detox. Please contact us today to find out more.
Council-funded treatment may also be available. You can ask for a GP referral or contact these organisations yourself.
We list some of these bodies operating in Wales below:
Address: Penlan, Penlan Road, Carmarthen SA31 1DN
Telephone: 0126 724 4442
Address: Llanharry Rd, Llanharan, Pontyclun CF72 9RN
Telephone: 0144 322 6864
Address: St Fagans House, St Fagans St, Caerphilly CF83 1FZ
Telephone: 0292 086 8675
It’s also possible to undergo a detox via an NHS Alcohol Care Team (ACT), but this is generally only available if your symptoms are sufficiently severe. It is generally not recommended to allow your addiction to progress to this stage, because you will likely inflict lasting damage to your organs.
The first step is to register with a local drug and alcohol service. Often, the criteria to access NHS support is a roadblock, because your situation will need to be considered an emergency. Strict triaging rules often mean very few are eligible for this support.
Often the person experiencing the addiction will deny the very existence of the problem. If your loved one is in denial, then your first port of call should be to contact a professional addiction interventionist. You can locate a BACP registered interventionist by contacting us today.
We provide additional information on the work of an interventionist here.
Mutual support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) operate throughout both North, South and Mid-Wales. These groups offer help and support to those affected by alcoholism and drug addiction, and this service is entirely free of charge.
Both AA and NA offer the famous 12-step programme. We offer a helpful guide to the 12-step programme here.
We recommend 12-step meetings for those who are actively ‘in recovery’. If you are still using drugs or drinking alcohol, then we would recommend you complete detoxification and rehabilitation before tackling 12 step meetings.
