Is inpatient rehab the most suitable option for me?

While rehab is suitable for anyone living with a drug or alcohol addiction, many people may benefit more from a stay at an inpatient clinic as opposed to a home detox or outpatient programme.

This may be due to the nature or severity of their addiction, the presence of any physical or mental health conditions which may impact their recovery and/or their past experiences with addiction treatment.

If you meet any of the criteria below, you will likely find inpatient rehab to be a safer and more effective form of treatment than an outpatient programme or home detox.

Inpatient rehab is best suited to the following people:

  • Anyone who is regularly drinking more than 30 units of alcohol a day
  • Anyone who has previously experienced severe withdrawal symptoms or delirium tremens such as seizures and hallucinations
  • Anyone who has a history of suicidal thoughts or self-harm urges
  • Anyone who becomes violent or aggressive towards themselves or others when unable to use drugs or alcohol
  • Anyone who has been diagnosed with a co-occurring mental health disorder which may make it difficult for them to recover without 24/7 medical supervision
  • Anyone who has relapsed after treatment in the past, either as an inpatient or an outpatient
  • Anyone who has been diagnosed with Wernicke’s encephalopathy
  • Anyone who is classed as suffering from a moderate or severe addiction as assessed by the DSM-5

Our rehab clinics provide 24/7 medical supervision and monitoring.

Our physicians can also prescribe a range of medications to help you through the process, keeping you safe and reducing your risk of relapse.

Understanding the rehab admissions process

People in circle holding hands

We understand how stressful it can be to enter treatment for a substance use disorder.

As a result, our team will do everything in our power to ensure that the transition is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Upon arriving at the rehab clinic you will be assessed by a trained and experienced doctor who will carry out several tests to determine the type and severity of your addiction as well as identify any underlying mental health conditions which may also require treatment.

This may involve:

  • Performing blood tests and other physical examinations.
  • Prescribing any necessary medications to help you through the withdrawal process.
  • And potentially interviewing friends or family members regarding your current lifestyle.

The doctor may also utilise several professional tools and techniques to objectively assess and diagnose your condition including the ASAM criteria, the DSM-5 criteria and the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs).

Being assessed with the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria

Upon entering a rehab clinic you will receive a personalised treatment plan that is best suited to you and your individual needs.

To create this programme a doctor must conduct a full assessment to identify any potential barriers to recovery including withdrawal symptoms, physical and mental health problems and the likelihood of relapse.

When developing this treatment plan many doctors utilise the six dimensions of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria.

These six dimensions encompass the main aspects of recovery and treatment, and by examining these in relation to each patient it becomes possible to form an objective assessment of their path towards recovery. [1]

The six dimensions of the ASAM criteria are as follows:

  • Acute Intoxication and/or Withdrawal Potential: Understanding the severity of your addiction and how likely you are to experience mild, moderate or severe withdrawal symptoms.
  • Biomedical Conditions and Complications: Examining any physical health conditions that may impede your treatment progress.
  • Emotional, Behavioural or Cognitive Conditions or Complications: Examining any psychological health conditions that may impede your treatment progress.
  • Readiness to Change: Understanding how motivated and willing you are to change your behaviours and lifestyle.
  • Relapse, Continued Use or Continued Problem Potential: Assessing the likelihood of relapse after treatment and any previous experiences.
  • Recovery/Living Environment: Exploring your current living environment and general lifestyle and identifying any factors that may impede your recovery.

Examining these six dimensions allows a comprehensive treatment plan to be created that is specifically tailored to each patient and their individual needs.

Being assessed with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) criteria

Another useful tool that may be utilised during the rehab assessment process is the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) criteria.

The DSM-5 is the official text used by medical professionals to diagnose a substance use disorder, and can also help assess the severity of alcohol or drug addiction. [2]

If you have been referred to a rehab clinic by your GP, they may have already conducted an assessment using the DSM-5 criteria.

Otherwise, you will likely experience this type of assessment when you arrive at your chosen rehab clinic.

Your doctor and medical team must understand the nature and severity of your substance use disorder to ensure you receive the appropriate treatment.

The DSM-5’s 11 criteria for substance use disorders are explained below:

  • Hazardous use: Your substance use has become dangerous to yourself and/or those around you.
  • Social or interpersonal problems related to use: You have experienced problems in your close relationships due to your substance use.
  • Neglected major roles to use: You prioritise substance use over other responsibilities.
  • Withdrawal: You experience withdrawal symptoms if you do not use the substance.
  • Tolerance: You have built up a tolerance to the substance through frequent use.
  • Used larger amounts/longer: The amount of the substance you used regularly has increased.
  • Repeated attempts to control use or quit: You have been unable to reduce the substance or stop entirely.
  • Much time spent using: A large amount of your time is spent focused on the substance.
  • Physical or psychological problems related to use: You have experienced physical or psychological health problems due to substance use.
  • Activities are given up to use: You no longer take part in activities that you previously enjoyed, due to your substance use.
  • Craving: You experience strong cravings for the substance.

If you meet two or more of these criteria, you will likely be diagnosed with a substance use disorder.

A mild substance use disorder is diagnosed if you meet two or three of the above criteria while a moderate disorder requires four or five criteria to be met.

A severe substance use disorder will only be diagnosed if you meet more than six of the DSM-5’s criteria.

Being assessed with the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

Drinking coffee

The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) is a simple questionnaire designed to identify people who may be drinking excessively and who could be at risk of developing severe alcohol addiction.

AUDIT is designed to examine your alcohol intake, assess your dependency on this substance and identify any consequences that have resulted from your alcohol use. [3]

It is often used in rehab clinics as part of the assessment process to help the medical staff understand the severity of your addiction and any factors that may be contributing to your alcohol use disorder.

It may also be used by your local GP to determine whether you should be referred to a rehab clinic or treatment programme.

During the test, a doctor will ask you a series of ten questions which are detailed below.

You will be required to score your responses from 0 to 5, which will then be converted into points.

  • 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?

If you score 0 to 7 points, your risk of developing an alcohol use disorder is low.

A score of 8-15 is considered an increased risk, 16 to 19 points could show high risk.

And a score of 20 or above can indicate a physical and/or psychological dependence on alcohol.

What is a dual diagnosis?

Two people hugging

Many people entering rehab for substance addiction are also living with a mental health condition, and they may not be aware of this until they are officially diagnosed during the admissions process.

When someone is affected by both an addiction and a mental health condition, this is known as a dual diagnosis.

This may also be referred to as co-morbidity or a dual disorder. [4]

Some of the mental health disorders associated with addiction include:

It can be difficult to know for certain whether the mental health condition caused the addiction or vice versa.

Some people attempt to self-medicate any mental health problems with drugs or alcohol, while others may develop psychological problems due to the use of substances.

Regardless of which disorder came first, it is important to treat both conditions simultaneously.

If a patient enters a treatment programme solely designed to treat their addiction, they may find it difficult to achieve long-term recovery while continuing to battle a mental health disorder.

Before rehab: Holding a successful intervention

group-standing

Before entering rehab, many people spend months or even years refusing to acknowledge their addiction and denying that they have a problem.

This can be extremely frustrating and upsetting for their family members and other loved ones who are desperate for them to seek help.

In these situations, a planned and carefully managed intervention can be an effective tool for persuading someone with an addiction to enter treatment.

An intervention involves a small group of family members and friends confronting the affected individual with the reality of the situation.

It is thought that the shock of this experience as well as the knowledge of how their behaviour is affecting those closest to them can be a catalyst in encouraging them to seek help.

During the intervention, each member will be encouraged to read out a statement expressing their concerns and the impact of the addiction on their own life.

It is recommended that you enlist the services of a counsellor or professional interventionist to diffuse any potentially difficult situations and keep the intervention running as smoothly as possible.

In some cases, this type of confrontation may push the individual further away and cause more problems. This is where Community Reinforcement and Family Therapy (CRAFT) can be helpful.

CRAFT is focused on the family members and loved ones rather than the affected individual and operates under the belief that these people have the power to affect change.

As a result, CRAFT teaches helpful techniques and strategies that family members can use to motivate and influence the person to change their behaviours over time.

It is not a direct confrontation and is designed to strengthen family bonds over time while slowly encouraging the individual to move towards recovery.

What is the cost of rehab in Worcestershire?

rehab - outside photo of exterior building

While rehab is an investment in your health and future, many people assume that they will not be able to afford the fees associated with addiction treatment.

However many of the treatment programmes available at rehab clinics in Worcestershire can be customised to suit your specific needs and budget.

As a result, the total price can vary widely depending on whether you opt for a single or multiple-occupancy room, a shorter stay or a certain type of facility.

A 10-day stay in a shared room can range between £2,000 to £4,000, which a single room may cost between £3,000 to £6,000.

If you opt for a 28-day stay, you can expect to pay between £6,000 and £12,000 depending on the above factors.

The option for a home detox programme is also available, although specific criteria must be met to be approved for this type of treatment.

Although a much cheaper option at around £1500, it’s important to note that a home detox does not involve the extensive counselling that may be crucial to long-term recovery.

For a more exact quote on the cost of rehab in Worcestershire, get in touch with our friendly team who will be happy to walk you through your pricing options.

Call our expert team today on: 0800 140 4690.

What is the length of rehab in Worcestershire?

Therapy room

In general, there is no minimum or maximum length of time that you are permitted to stay at rehab as long as you can afford the fees.

The majority of rehab clinics in Worcestershire offer packages ranging from 30, 60 or 90 days which include full physical detoxification, a range of counselling options and a personalised aftercare plan.

There are often shorter detoxification programmes available which range between 7 and 10 days, and these can be a beneficial option for those who are unable to take a large amount of time off from work or other responsibilities.

In most cases, you will be able to leave your chosen rehab facility at any point. However, it is recommended that patients remain at the clinic for a minimum of 30 days to effectively benefit from the programme.

The length of time that you will remain in treatment will often be decided as part of the admissions process, and the medical team will take care to balance your health and recovery needs with your lifestyle and budget.

Is it safe to detox from alcohol at home in Worcestershire?

head to head

If you choose a medically-assisted programme and meet the required criteria, home detox is an extremely safe and effective way to withdraw from alcohol in familiar and comfortable surroundings.

The below criteria ensure that you will remain safe and healthy throughout the duration of the home detox programme.

If you do not meet this criterion, you will likely benefit more from a stay at an inpatient rehab clinic.

  • You must be consuming less than 30 units of alcohol a day
  • You must have no history of seizures or any other severe withdrawal symptoms
  • You must have no history of suicide attempts or self-harm relating to alcohol withdrawal
  • You must be able to dedicate 7-10 days towards the alcohol detox

Before the programme begins you will be subject to a thorough pre-assessment, during which a physician will determine whether you are suitable for this treatment.

This may be conducted over the phone or via video chat methods such as Skype.

You may be prescribed Librium to prevent withdrawal-related seizures.

This will be posted directly to your home, and throughout the process, you will receive regular telephone calls from your physician.

You will also have access to a 24/7 medical helpline in the event of an emergency.

When managed correctly and approved by medical professionals, a home detox is a safe and accessible option that can support many people in beginning their recovery journey.

What are the dangers of alcohol self-detox?

While a medically-assisted home detox programme is completely safe, this should not be confused with an alcohol self-detox.

This practice involves withdrawing from alcohol at home with no medical assistance and can be an extremely dangerous and even life-threatening decision.

It is not recommended to attempt to self-detox from alcohol under any circumstances.

If you have developed any type of physical or psychological dependency on alcohol, you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms once you reduce or eliminate this substance.

Many of these side effects are merely uncomfortable, but some can be deadly. [5]

Common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

The most dangerous withdrawal symptom is known as delirium tremens and can involve intense tremors, hallucinations, seizures and unconsciousness.

Delirium tremens can develop very quickly, and you may be unable to seek help in time if you are detoxing without medical supervision.

Additionally, attempting to withdraw from alcohol at home prevents you from accessing potentially life-saving medications that can prevent seizures and heart failures.

Cocaine rehab in Worcestershire

As cocaine is both physically and psychologically addictive, cutting down or completely stopping your intake of this substance is often extremely difficult.

Cocaine encourages your brain to release large amounts of dopamine, providing you with a rush of extreme pleasure and euphoria.

Over time your brain may find it difficult to produce enough dopamine, resulting in feelings of depression and intense cravings. [6]

It is possible to recover from cocaine addiction, and the physical and psychological effects can be reversed with proper treatment. You will have a greater chance of success if you choose to attend a rehab clinic.

Once admitted you will undergo full detoxification to remove all traces of cocaine from your system. It is likely that you will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms and will have a strong urge to use cocaine during this time.

Thankfully, rehab clinics can provide 24/7 monitoring along with prescribed medications to help you get through the initial detoxification period.

Combined with regular therapy sessions and the development of a personalised relapse prevention plan, your chances of success are far greater than if you had attempted to recover from a cocaine addiction alone.

Heroin rehab in Worcestershire

Health and wellness massage for sports and fitness

Another dangerously addictive drug, heroin is thought to be one of the most difficult substances to recover from.

It is common to experience intense withdrawal symptoms and often uncontrollable cravings for heroin as you attempt to recover, and this can lead many people to relapse into a vicious withdrawal-relapse cycle. [7]

The risk of overdose is also extremely high when attempting to recover from heroin, as your tolerance will lower very quickly.

If you quit heroin ‘cold ‘turkey’ before relapsing and attempting to ingest your usual amount of this substance, your body may be overwhelmed and begin to shut down.

As a result, the safest and most effective way to recover from heroin addiction is within an inpatient rehab facility.

You will have access to trained medical staff and a wide range of medications, allowing you to stay safe and navigate the withdrawal process more comfortably.

Many people choose to switch from heroin to a less-addictive form of opioid known as methadone which is easier to withdraw from.

This is much safer than using heroin, as methadone is carefully controlled and medically administered.

It is recommended that you continue ongoing counselling sessions once you leave rehab, and this will be addressed as part of your relapse prevention plan.

Cannabis rehab in Worcestershire

Group holding leafs

Many people insist on promoting the supposed health benefits of cannabis, but this substance has the potential to be psychologically addictive and can lead to many long-term health consequences. [8]

Although cannabis has been legalised in several countries across the world, it is still prohibited to possess, use, supply or produce this substance in the UK.

If you have developed a psychological dependence on cannabis then it is highly recommended that you attend an inpatient rehab clinic to focus on your recovery.

There is no evidence showing a link between cannabis and physical dependence, and you are unlikely to experience any physical side effects when you stop using this substance.

However, the psychological side effects such as cravings and increased anxiety can be overwhelming and therefore you will benefit from 24/7 medical supervision within a rehab facility.

You may also be prescribed a range of medications to help alleviate the side effects.

THC can remain in your system for up to a month after you stop using cannabis, so it’s important to stay focused on your recovery goal to completely remove this substance from your body.

During the rehab process, you will also benefit from intensive counselling often in the form of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and/or individual and group sessions.

This will help you to examine any detrimental self-beliefs and past traumas that may have led you to develop an addiction.

Call our expert team today on: 0800 140 4690.

Choosing between private rehab and council-funded rehab

Group therapy - hands in air

If we believe that you would benefit from rehab, our team will usually refer you to a private rehab clinic. However, we understand that some people may benefit more from a council-funded facility.

Choosing between a private and council-funded rehab can be difficult, but it is important to understand the benefits and drawbacks of both options before making a decision.

The process of entering a private rehab clinic is as simple and stress-free as possible due to the efficiency of the admissions process.

Many people can secure space and begin treatment at a private rehab clinic within as little as one or two days.

This is not the case at a council-funded rehab, as these facilities often have long waiting lists and you may find yourself waiting weeks or even months for treatment.

The main benefit of council-funded rehab is that it is free or available at a reduced rate, making it a more accessible and affordable option for the majority of people.

Private rehabs are more expensive, although the treatment plans and prices can often be customised according to your specific needs and budget.

The quality of care in both private and council-funded rehabs is extremely high, but private clinics will often have a wider variety of treatments including holistic methods such as art and music therapy.

These may be more difficult to access within council-funded rehab, which typically offers more traditional forms of therapy.

No matter which option you select, you are highly likely to benefit from inpatient rehab and set yourself up for success with long-term sobriety.

What types of therapy treatments are available at rehab in Worcestershire?

Massage

We can refer you to several rehab clinics across Worcestershire that each offers a wide range of therapy treatments.

As each person is unique, so are their needs and personal preferences.

Some people may respond well to patient-led treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy or dialectical behaviour therapy, while others may have a difficult family dynamic that contributes to their addiction and would therefore benefit from family therapy.

Common therapy treatments available at rehab clinics include:

You may find a wider range of therapy treatments at a private rehab clinic as opposed to a council-funded centre, particularly when it comes to holistic treatments such as art therapy and acupuncture.

It is recommended that you thoroughly research your chosen rehab clinic to ensure that they provide a range of therapy treatments to suit your needs.

Call our expert team today on: 0800 140 4690.

Preventing relapse after treatment

Many people are concerned about the possibility of relapsing after completing a treatment programme.

While this is a fairly common occurrence, there are several proactive steps that you can take to increase your chances of long-term recovery.

Relapse prevention begins long before you have even set foot outside your rehab clinic, as you will be encouraged to create a relapse prevention plan with the help and guidance of your medical team. [9]

The first step is to understand and acknowledge any potential triggers, cravings and other scenarios in which you may be tempted to use drugs or alcohol.

Next, you will develop an action plan detailing how you will respond to each of these situations which can help you feel more prepared and confident when stepping back into the world.

As well as preparing for these situations it’s important to ensure that you have the essential building blocks of recovery in place. This may involve ongoing counselling sessions, attending local support groups and becoming involved in your rehab clinic’s alumni programme.

Addiction recovery does not end once you have completed a treatment programme – it takes work and dedication to achieve long-term sobriety.

Are there any alternatives to rehab available in Worcestershire?

Walking outside

We understand that many people are unable to attend inpatient rehab due to many reasons. These may be related to finances, work, childcare or other family responsibilities.

Thankfully there are several alternatives to rehab available in Worcestershire that may be more affordable and accessible for you.

While their methods may differ from inpatient rehab, they can be just as effective at treating a substance use disorder.

Tackling the psychological problems behind the addiction can go a long way in treating the root cause of a substance use disorder.

Many people self-medicate with drugs or alcohol as they have never been taught how to manage stress healthily, so attending regular counselling sessions can be extremely beneficial.

It is common to feel lonely and isolated when dealing with a substance use disorder, and this can create a cycle of feeling low and then using substances in an attempt to feel better.

Attending a local support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous can help you to form connections with others and share your experiences, helping you to feel less alone.

You do not need to stay at a residential rehab clinic to experience the benefits of an addiction treatment programme.

Many facilities offer outpatient services, during which patients will attend detoxification and counselling sessions during the day and return to their own homes in the evening.

This makes rehab more accessible for people who are unable to take a large amount of time off work or who have family and home responsibilities.

Similarly, medically-assisted home detox programmes are ideal for those who do not have the budget for residential rehab or have ongoing commitments that prevent them from staying at a clinic.

This is a great way to safely detox from alcohol or drugs while remaining in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home.

SMART Recovery is a self-help addiction recovery technique that encourages individuals to make positive changes to their lives to recover from a substance use disorder.

Based on CBT techniques, Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) works on building motivation for recovery, managing cravings, confronting detrimental beliefs and mindsets and creating a fulfilling and balanced life.

When to Get Help

Diverse people in a support group

Have you attempted to ‘free yourself’ from substances before and failed? The sad truth is that only a small fraction of people manage to beat their addiction on their own.

One of the most common addictions is alcohol use disorder. This disease is very difficult to overcome.

Rather than go through these symptoms, most who experiences substance misuse issues will continue to drink alcohol to self-medicate.

Another thing that makes it hard to treat substance abuse problems is trauma. Trauma is, undoubtedly, a contributory factor for many substance abuse problems.

Rehabs in Worcestershire offer dual diagnosis treatment to help treat the underlying emotional causes of addiction.

Those who are suffering need to come to terms with their trauma to heal fully. This is one of the many reasons why inpatient rehab in Worcestershire is effective.

The Worcestershire Rehab Process Explained

Group therapy - teens - black and white

Below we explain the general rehab process at our drug and alcohol rehab Worcestershire centres. It consists of three stages:

  • Detox: Depending on the length and severity of the addiction, detox is inevitable with most patients, and our staff are trained to provide the most support they can through this challenging time. With a physical addiction, detox is your body trying to return to its healthy functioning state and is a difficult process to go through. Confronting your addiction before things get to this stage can significantly reduce the recovery time; however, our staff are highly trained and have helped many people recover, no matter how severe the addiction
  • Rehab: Recovering from addiction is a process that is much more than abstaining from the substance. Most people turn to drugs as a way to relieve some trauma and pain they may have suffered in life, and confronting this and learning to live a healthy and drug-free life is possible through support and rehabilitation. You will benefit from evidence-base treatments, such as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy.
  • Aftercare: Aftercare is a helpful way to avoid a dreaded relapse. It involves continuing therapy, counselling and group sessions to keep you on the right track. Relapsing is common amongst those who get out of recovery and is absolutely nothing to feel ashamed about, but supportive aftercare can significantly benefit the life of the recovering person and can help them live a life free from addiction or alcohol dependence

Treatment Options In Worcestershire

First, you may choose to detox from home. Home-based detoxes are cheap, but the chances of relapse are greater. We do not recommend a home-based detox for this reason.

Your second option is to do a home detox at the same time as therapy sessions. These therapy sessions would happen on an outpatient basis. This option is quite risky too as the temptation to relapse will still be there.

The third and final option is to get treatment from the safety of a residential treatment centre. In a centre like this, there is less risk of relapse.

One recent study found that environmental factors and social cues are key to drug addiction.

In modern times we have begun to get the idea that drug addiction is a complex thing. It depends on more than just your brain craving a substance. Patterns of behaviour matter too.

How long does inpatient treatment in Worcestershire last for? The answer will depend on how bad your addiction is. It also depends on how bad your mental health issues are.

The more severe these issues, the longer you must remain in a residential clinic.

Residential treatment requires on average between 7 and 28 days to complete. It also provides for weekly outpatient sessions once you return home.

You will get these outpatient sessions for 12 months after you leave rehab. This is part of aftercare and is a way to help you stay clean.

A Typical Day in a Drug Rehab in Worcestershire

Below is an outline of a typical day at one of our rehab centres in Worcestershire:

1. Morning

Patients wake up early each morning and start their day with a healthy breakfast. Some meditation may follow to clear the head. After this, morning meetings occur.

2. Afternoon

During the afternoon, there is a wide range of treatment and therapy sessions. The patient can attend the sessions they need based on their situation.

There is also free time during the day for leisure activities such as ping pong, basketball, and pool.
