Getting help for Addiction & Substance Abuse in Essex

We have several options when it comes to rehab treatment in Essex. Addiction varies throughout the county, and our rehab clinics provide expert recovery services for all of the substances and behavioural addictions in the Essex area, including alcohol, cocaine, heroin and other opiates.

Drug & Alcohol Treatment Care

Our residential rehabs in Essex offer the treatment of acute drug and alcohol addiction and work on the premise of meeting the needs of the individual. The hands-on treatment programs at our Essex rehabs mean that the clinics and counsellors provide all the steps and helping hands necessary, but ultimately, the individual is in charge of their recovery.

With various locations in Essex, from the peaceful English countryside, to more coastal settings, our Essex rehabs offer ideal sanctuaries for those who come from the nearby cities of London, Cambridge and Birmingham, with excellent accessibility even from further afield. Welcome news to those who need a quick admission to escape the stresses and struggles of a life living with an addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Rehab staff are always available in residential rehabs, 24-hours  a day, to help you with your addiction problems and help you start your recovery journey. Feedback on our Essex rehab centres has always been that patients felt very well looked after, and there are always professional care and therapeutic staff members available when they needed them. Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is a tough time for everyone, and you need as much support as you can get. Support is also available to family members of residents in our treatment centres, who can visit and even attend family therapy sessions to stay involved in a loved one’s addiction recovery.

Addiction Detox Treatment

We see stopping you or a loved one’s substance misuse as the first step on the road to living life to its fullest again. It can feel difficult at the time, but it is important to understand that returning to a smaller amount of alcohol or any amount of street drugs is impossible for those with an addiction. All the substances that you have been taking have to be gone from your system so you can begin recovery with a clear head. Thanks to modern alcohol withdrawal medicine and the medical supervision in residential rehabs in Essex, you can be spared the worst withdrawal effects.

There are many specialist addiction prescriptions available from the Essex rehab’s detox doctor. These are given depending on your medical history, physical and physical state, and what drugs or alcohol you have been using. Sedatives for the first few days are common, as well as certain medications that reduce cramping, shakes and insomnia. These are highly recommended for a comfortable and safe detox from alcohol and also for drug addiction. However, this is one case where ‘cold turkey’ is dangerous and likely to be unsuccessful. The length of medical detox in rehab depends on your addiction but usually takes anywhere from a week to two weeks.

Recovery & Rehabilitation Therapies

Then to the next and arguably most important step in rehab, the recovery therapies. Many in the addiction treatment world would agree that detox frees your body, but recovery and therapy are needed to release the mind. Getting off drugs or alcohol feels like a new lease of life, however, this can be short-lived if the underlying issues that led you to addiction are not dealt with. Psychotherapy one-on-one and in groups is a part of daily life in the Essex rehab treatment program. These will help you understand your addiction and get you into the rhythm of recovery groups, an essential support network for your return from rehab.

Sharing and unburdening, along with learning new coping mechanisms and role-playing difficult situations, gives you what you need to stay on the right path. This can help deal with trauma, anxiety and many other mental health issues that can keep us relying on drugs or alcohol. On one side, the counsellors in the Essex rehabilitation centre will help you break down negative habits, and on the other, as a team, the rehab staff will show you how to build up new healthier ones. In addition, many holistic therapies and art, sport and social programs are available at the Essex rehab to help you find a new and fulfilling way to destress and express your feelings.

Essex Rehab Costs

Rehab prices will vary depending on the location, facilities, and the amount of time you stay at the centre. Generally, a 7-to-10-day addiiton detox will cost around £2000-£8000. Sharing a room with another resident usually costs £15000-£4000.

Higher standard or luxury rehabs will offer more facilities and private rooms costing between £10,000 and £15,000 a week. The recommended stay at rehab is usually 28 days, costing between £8000 to £12000, or £6000 for a shared room. Obviously, if costs allow, a longer stay in rehab would be more beneficial.

We recommend against very short stays in rehab which often lead to relapse and a return to the residence, wasted money and ultimately let down. The best is to do detox and rehab correctly the first time, saving a lot of pain, hassle, wory and money.

Essex Drug & Alcohol Rehab FAQs

How long does it take for rehab to work?

A typical rehab treatment program in Essex will take around a month or a little longer if the addiction is more severe. This wholly depends on individual clients and the severity of the addiction, the detox period and the physical and mental state of the person being treated. Other factors include willingness to engage, a person’s support network and the nature of their addiction. The length of time spent in residential rehab can be surprising and may raise doubts about whether you can spend that amount of time away from work and your family. But, surely, spending a month or so in rehab is worth the time to get well, rather than continue the way you are? This can be helped by visits from family, and there is a good Wi-Fi connection for remote work in the rehab centre and rooms.

What happens in a rehab centre?

The daily life in a rehab clinic will be quite routine, which helps to stabilise what has often been a chaotic life living with an addiction problem. Meals in the Essex rehab are prepared by the in-house chef, and social, sport and art activities are available each day. These are worked around your desired treatment program, which includes group sessions and individual addiction therapy. You can also book family visits and therapy sessions and spend social time with your visitors or other residents.

How to choose a rehab facility?

Deciding to go into a private rehab is a big decision personally and often financially and one well worth looking into thoroughly. This investment in the life and happiness of yourself or someone you care about should be supported by professional advice.

Free Rehab Treatment & Addiction Services in Essex

Local Addiction Services

Due to the size of the ocunty, there are numerous local addiciton services. Some of those below may be able to help.

Addiction Self Help Groups

Self help groups can offer recovery and maintenance and include:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous, or ‘The AA’, is an international fellowship to enable members to remain sober and help other alcoholics through the same 12 Step Program.
  • Narcotics Anonymous, or ‘The NA’ hosts meetings, using a twelve-step model developed for people with varied substance use disorders.
  • Smart Recovery groups in Birmingham. An alternative to the AA’s twelve-step model, Smart Recovery is a not-for-profit organisation assisting you in seeking abstinence from addiction. The closest physical meeting to Birmingham is in Rugby (40 mins travel); however, access to all online meetings is available.
  • Cocaine Anonymous – “CA” hosts meetings for those addicted to cocaine and all other substances. Can be a good alternative to AA and NA even if you don’t or haven’t every used cocaine, as it covers all addicitons too.
