Alcohol & Drug Rehab in Nottingham

The Rehab Centre in Nottingham

Are you in need of drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham? Then read on. This guide will tell you everything you need to know.

Nestled away in a quiet suburb of Nottingham city, this rehab treatment centre provides a bolt hole if you are looking to recover away from the day-to-day stresses and temptations of home. The Nottingham rehab centre is a short journey from London and Sheffield and within easy train and flight connections to Glasgow and Edinburgh. If you are coming from further afield in Europe or Ireland, East Midlands Airport is only a short drive away, and the rehab centre will arrange pick-up for clients. The rehab offers urgent admissions year-round as well as advance bookings.

Nottingham has a growing drug addiction and misuse problem with recent surveys showing a 42% increase in drug-related deaths in the area. There is an especially high risk of alcohol abuse in younger people with 16-24-year-olds at greater rates than the national average. There is a significant need for alcohol rehab and drug rehab in Nottinghamshire. The size of the problem means the local and community drug and alcohol services Nottingham currently has may not be able to cover all those who need help. Fortunately, private residential rehab is an option for many living in the area. Read on to find out more about private rehab centres in Nottingham.

What Happens in the Nottingham Rehab?

Treating the entire person is at the heart of the most effective drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. This is why the Nottingham clinic provides psychological and physical treatments for drug and alcohol addiction. After your initial detox period, you will embark on various group and individual therapy sessions, introducing you to the 12-step method. This is the long-term rehab recovery system that helps you to not only stop taking addictive substances but remain abstinent for life. Clients will find this particularly useful after their treatment as most AA (alcoholics anonymous) and NA (narcotics anonymous) support groups use the 12-step program.

The physical part of alcohol recovery is often overlooked in favour of recovering our mental health; the same often goes for drug addiction. However, it is good to remember that the two are profoundly linked and improving the state of your body will have a knock-on effect on your mind.

Fitness and swimming sessions are offered within the programme and plenty of walks and day trips to keep you active and sociable. Nottingham is an ideal location to enjoy relaxing walks and interesting days out with others. These activities, along with meditation and mindfulness training, help reduce stress and anxiety, often at the heart of substance abuse.

Aftercare for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse

The final stage of rehabilitation is the longest, staying clean and sober long-term. The end goal of recovery is to be free from your addiction for the rest of your life. To aid in this, the Nottingham rehab offers an aftercare program which you will plan before you leave rehab. This can involve introducing you to recovery groups in your area, one to one counselling sessions and creating plans and coping mechanisms for your return to normal life.

Free Rehab in Nottingham

We believe that residential rehab is the safest way to detox and push yourself to quit alcohol or drug addiction permanently. However, for many people, this is simply not an option. It is very important that these people still seek professional help for their addiction. This is a disease that needs treatment regardless of your financial or personal situation. If you are unable to afford private rehab or have too many personal commitments to do a 28-day rehab program, outpatient help is available. If you need free rehab Nottingham has several excellent options available to all.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Nottingham Rehab

What Is A Medical Detox?

The idea of taking medication to reduce the effects of coming off drugs or alcohol can seem at once surprising and a relief. Extensive research has been done in recent years into treatments that prevent the unpleasant and occasionally dangerous physical side effects of detoxing from both drugs and alcohol. A specialist detox doctor will meet with you upon admission and discuss a program depending on what substances you have been abusing and for how long. Based on this, you will be given medication to help you during the detox and withdrawal period. This is not only much easier than ‘going cold turkey’ but also allows you to participate in therapy and recovery programs during this time.

Is Private Rehab Expensive?

As with many private residential treatments in the U.K., the cost of rehab for drugs and alcohol in Nottingham does vary. However, the rehab clinics that we recommend are similar in the quality and content of their treatment programs. The price variation is mostly to do with the location. For example, rehab in a London centre will be different in price to one in the suburbs of Nottingham and the East Midlands region. Also, the type of residence and facilities offered will have an impact on the price. For example, a rehab clinic with a gym, private rooms and substantial garden grounds will be more expensive than one where room sharing is common.

It is important to consider the cost before rehab and prioritise recovery with a longer stay rather than cost-cutting with a shorter stay in a more expensive rehab clinic. The Nottingham rehab has the option of both single and private rooms, which can help to tailor your stay to your budget.

How Long Does Alcohol and Drug Rehab Take?

Addiction and rehabilitation involve certain patterns, but it is a highly personalized care plan to a large extent. For the most part, unless you have already managed to come off the substance you are addicted to, the first step will be a drug or alcohol detox. In a professional rehab centre, this will invariably be a medical detox unless you request otherwise. This will take around a week to two weeks, depending on the drugs or alcohol types and extent of the intoxication.

After detoxing, the journey towards permanent sobriety and abstinence begins. The length of time it takes one person to recover from drug and alcohol addiction and be ready to return to their life without risking relapse can be entirely different to another. Mental health concerns, for which the Nottingham rehab offers comprehensive treatment, can also influence the length of stay. For most people, a full stay in rehab will be around a month to three months. This gives you the best chance of long-term recovery and avoids repeat admissions.
