Drug rehab, or drug addiction rehab, is a course of treatment for drug addiction or dependency

What is Drug Rehab?

Drug rehab, or drug addiction rehab, is a course of treatment for drug addiction or dependency, often at a residential facility. Drug rehabs tend to be abstinence based and provide an intense programme of support and care aimed at people who have difficulty becoming drug free without such intensive support. Drug rehab centres often have a clinical team who can administer a detox, ensuring a safer and more comfortable withdrawal from drugs.

At Port of Call, we recognise that each case is different and our expertise is in helping you to find the right help at the right time. People who are struggling with substance abuse get well in lots of different ways; there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.

Information & Advice about Rehab for Drugs

How drug rehab works
One of the ways in which drug rehab works is by administering a drug detox,  ensuring a safer and more comfortable withdrawal from drugs. Detox is a process that removes a drug’s toxins from the body and is usually the first step towards treating a drug addiction. Sudden drug withdrawal can be life-threatening, which is why a gradual detox should always be carried out in a medically supervised environment. Drug rehab is a pivotal part of the drug recovery process and can include treatments such as:

  • Individual counselling
  • Group work
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Education
  • Relapse prevention
When is drug rehab necessary?
With addiction comes denial. Many addicts aren’t aware of the help they require, making the process of drug addiction rehab complex. The most common signs of drug addiction include depression and anxiety after being withdrawn from drugs, a lack of interest when it comes to family, hobbies or work and the need to take more drugs regularly in order to feel well. Drug rehab is necessary for anyone who is reliant on drugs, as professional help from experts at a rehab centre for drug addiction can assist in their fight to combat drug addiction.
How much does drug rehab cost?
It is possible to apply for NHS funding for drug rehab, however this can often involve long referral periods. In order to secure quick admission to a private drug rehab facility, it is advisable to get in touch with Port of Call, as our addiction specialists will be able to guide you through this process. The cost of private drug addiction rehab can depend on many factors, including length of stay and location but, on average, private inpatient drug rehab treatment centres can cost from £1,000 to £5,600 per week, depending on personal requirements.
Are drug treatment programmes successful?
Rehab for drugs is generally most successful when carried out in a residential facility, as part of an intensive and structured programme of drug addiction treatment. In short, drug addiction rehab saves lives and restores families. For some people, this intensive form of treatment gives the best possible chance to break a cycle of drug addiction and achieve a fresh start.
Where to go after drug rehab
Aftercare is vital on the road to recovery. This is because being part of an inpatient drug rehab centre can allow you to detach from the real world, which can sometimes make integrating back into society extremely difficult. Aftercare programmes are put in place to facilitate this process of easing back into normality and can include group sessions, counselling and personalised treatment programmes. You should view your success at drug rehab as a fresh start and the most important thing is not to fall into the same routine as before. There is a lot of support available to those who want it, so you will never feel isolated or alone. You can speak to people who have been through the same process, who know what you are going through and can help you abstain.
