Drug Rehab - Rehab Guide

Drug Rehab

Drug Rehab

Drug Rehabilitation helps individuals with substance addiction overcome their dependency and achieve lasting sobriety.

Make an enquiry

Residential treatment for drug addiction involves staying at a specialised facility that offers both inpatient and outpatient programs.

Inpatient and outpatient treatment

Inpatient treatment involves staying in a secure and confidential facility for a period of around 30 to 90 days, allowing you to concentrate on your recovery.

Outpatient treatment provides the same standard of care, except you are free to leave at the end of the day. The reasons for attending outpatient over inpatient are mainly due to unavoidable responsibilities, including family or work commitments.

Drug rehab programs

Drug rehab programs combine medical and therapeutic methods to assist your recovery not only in the short term but also in the long term, ensuring a steady recovery.

Providing your desired level of care

Some of the treatment facilities we work with in the UK offer a wide range of care necessary to assist those with specific needs.

For instance, there are rehab centres that are more suitable for those dealing with alcohol addiction alongside psychological disorders like PTSD or bipolar disorder.

Drug rehab for specific groups

As previously mentioned, there are rehabilitation centres that are dedicated to providing programs designed around specific groups, including Veterans, LGBTQ+ or religious communities.

If you are in any of these specific groups and need drug rehabilitation, then we can provide the following:

● Immediate entry to an appropriate rehab

● Medically supervised detox

● A supportive facility free from temptation or harm

● A private and secluded environment

Drug detoxification

A supervised detox is always offered for drug rehab programs.

Without medical supervision for alcohol withdrawal, it can be uncomfortable and, in some cases, dangerous, and that is why it is vital to detox from substance addiction through a medical detox supervised by experienced doctors and nurses.

To ensure the welfare of our patients, we only endorse rehabilitation centres that have received accreditation from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Therapeutic program

After completing detoxification, you will receive treatment through a program that will address the following areas:

● Counselling that tackles the complex issues surrounding addiction

● Life-enhancing skills that can help you make important decisions

● Learning relapse prevention techniques essential for long-term recovery

You can learn more about our rehab programs by calling our addiction support team.

Rehab therapies

Therapy lies at the heart of addiction treatment, with a wide range of therapeutic techniques and models being used in the process.

Each facility has distinctive approaches, making assessing the therapy models offered before choosing a facility crucial.

Below, we have listed therapeutic models used in our rehabs.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) aims to encourage emotional strength.

ACT therapy integrates acceptance, mindfulness, commitment, and behaviour modification approaches to improve mental flexibility.

ACT’s goal is not to eliminate negative emotions and thoughts. Instead, it promotes accepting and managing uncomfortable feelings without avoiding situations that might cause them.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) seeks to improve mental wellness by challenging and changing negative thoughts and actions.

The therapist works together with the client to find effective strategies for handling addiction and triggers while also teaching the client new ways of processing information to help them adjust to life after treatment.

Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behaviour therapy is a modified form of cognitive behaviour therapy that integrates conventional methods and incorporates principles such as mindfulness, acceptance, and managing distress. These principles are deeply rooted in certain Buddhist traditions.

Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)

Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) focuses on the significance of relationships and tackles challenges in personal connections.

IPT acknowledges that our emotions are affected by our interactions and experiences with others and vice versa.

IPT aims to improve clients’ communication and relationship skills while also creating a support system for individuals who can assist them in overcoming challenges during their recovery.

Motivational enhancement therapy (MET)

Motivational enhancement therapy employs the technique of motivational interviewing to explore the content of client sessions. It aims to provide clients with ample information to achieve their goals and develop a healthier mindset.

The objective of MET is not to guide clients during their recovery but to initiate internal change that can enable a more positive attitude towards recovery.

psychoeducational groups

Psychoeducational group therapy employs cognitive-behavioural therapy principles to inform individuals about their alcohol-related problems and strategies for dealing with them.

The group engages in conversations about logical thinking, learning new techniques, encountering triggers, and avoiding a relapse.

Motivational interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a form of counselling that centres around the desires and objectives of the individual seeking help. Its goal is to inspire behavioural changes by addressing internal struggles.

Instead of passing judgment, this approach prioritises comprehension and encourages therapists to take a more active role.

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is an approach to therapy that focuses on finding answers rather than fixating on issues. It encourages individuals to reassess previous strategies for dealing with life’s challenges and comprehend the reasons behind their failure.

SFBT enables us to develop novel and appropriate solutions that match their unique circumstances and characteristics.

Holistic program

Having a calming, safe, and stress-free sanctuary is essential for those in the process of overcoming addiction. In addition to attending therapy sessions, you can enjoy the facilities and relax in the shared living space or outdoor areas.

Amenities available in rehab

Private accommodation: private rooms with an ensuite

Fitness suite: most of our rehabs provide a space with sports equipment

Holistic therapy room: enjoy a soothing and elevating therapy

Shared area: a social space with beverages where you can connect and read

Your psychological welfare needs to make time for relaxation as it allows you to recharge and reflect on your progress.

Addictions treated

At Rehab Guide, we provide comprehensive information on how to access addiction treatment in the United Kingdom for the following types of addiction:

● Alcohol dependency

● Drug addiction

● Gambling addiction

Do I need drug rehab?

If you experience any symptoms of drug withdrawal, then this signifies a dependency on alcohol. Therefore, abruptly ceasing drug intake without medical assistance is unsafe.

You may need to attend rehabilitation if you have these symptoms:

● Once begun, you find it near impossible to stop.

● Craving the drug

● The experience of withdrawal symptoms

● Maintaining your drug habit despite negative consequences

● Attempted to stop but experienced multiple relapses

Ceasing substance consumption can bring a variety of symptoms that can vary, depending on the person. We recommend seeking advice from our support team before abstaining from any addictive substances, as you may encounter intense withdrawal symptoms, such as mood swings, nausea, vomiting, aches, pains, and anxiety.
