What is a Rehab?

Rehab refers to residential treatment for substance rehabilitation. Rehabs can help with addiction to a variety of substances including alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and cannabis amongst others.

During rehab the person may need to be professionally assisted through a medicated detox (in the case of a physical dependence). Withdrawal from certain substances can be life threatening and from others can be extremely uncomfortable. Therefore it is vital that the detox takes place in a rehab where professionals are there to support the person throughout the process. Rehabs will also focus on the psychological side of the dependence. This will usually combine several types of therapy such as group and one-to-one therapy, educational seminars, and personal reflection through journal keeping. It is important that the person learns to understand their addiction and the reasons behind it in order to avoid future relapse.

Residential rehab differs from other treatments in that it is more intensive. The person is given some time away to really focus on getting themselves better. Another advantage is that the person is in a therapeutic environment surrounded by professionals that will make the process as easy as possible. The providers and rehabs UK that Triage Healthcare work with are registered with the appropriate professional bodies.

Home based alcohol rehab may be a consideration in some circumstances. Triage Healthcare always recommends that residential rehab is considered before home-based treatment. This is due to the environment offered in a residential rehab being more conducive to a successful outcome. It is also a more cost-effective route to explore. However, if residential rehab UK is not a feasible consideration, then Triage Healthcare may be able to arrange a home alcohol detox. Patients will be fully assessed by a specialist nurse before a home detox is approved. Overall medical responsibility falls on our medical director, Dr Bruce Trathen, consultant addiction psychiatrist.

When should someone seek Rehab?

Addiction can completely take over a person’s life. This does not have to be the case. Anyone can recover with the right treatment programme and rehab.

A sign of addiction is a change in finance. When substance dependence is present, financial problems will quickly become apparent. Unreliability, keeping strange hours, and being secretive are all indicators of an addiction problem. You may also notice an increase in new friends, who don’t seem “quite right”.

Two questions to ask are: 1. Can the person quit entirely when they honestly want to? 2. Is the person able to control the amount of substance consumed?

If the answer to either of these questions is no, please call us immediately to discuss rehab.

Where to Rehab

Residential rehab differs from other treatments in that it is more intensive and gives the person some time away from their normal environment to really focus on getting themselves better.

If someone cannot or will not access inpatient treatment then we can discuss the alternative treatment options available, such as home detox. If they do wish to go, we can advise all concerned on the safest and most comfortable private rehab UK wide.

It is possible to access private overseas services. This option can be particularly appealing to those individuals who have already accessed rehab in UK settings with limited success. By travelling overseas to access rehab, the person is completely removed from their problematic surroundings. Overseas treatment can also represent better value for money in some cases. It is possible to research information about this kind of rehab online to be sure that it meets the high standard offered by rehab UK centres.

Where private treatment is not affordable you may wish to consider treatment services provided by local NHS and voluntary organisations. Typically access to this type of rehab in UK locations can involve long waiting lists but is better than seeking no help at all.

How long could Rehab  treatment take?

The duration of residential treatment will vary depending on the particular situation. Drug rehab and alcohol rehabs UK usually offer programmes between 4 and 12 weeks long. Regardless of the length of treatment, an attitude of ‘seeing it through’ is central to effectiveness. Quality rehabs are able to identify the following:

  • How they actively engage with clients
  • That they provide a compassionate supportive environment
  • The provision of a structured programme
  • Real clarity about their policies and procedures
  • A full description of their therapies
  • How they tailor their activities to an individual’s needs

(Trathen et al, 2008).

How much does a private Rehab center cost?

High quality free advice and information is provided to all, as well as best-value private rehab UK to individuals with a limited budget.
