What is drug and alcohol rehabilitation?

A specialist centre that is able to focus on both drug and alcohol addiction at the same time could be the best place for you. A drug and alcohol rehab gives you access to experts who fully understand both addictions and can guide you on the best way to combat them, without any judgement. Both drug and alcohol treatment programmes allow you work to overcome addictions, whilst being surrounded by people who are going through similar issues in a safe and secure environment. At alcohol and drug rehab, you will be understood, accepted and helped.

Alcohol rehabilitation

When it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation, the process for treating both addictions will vary according to each individual. Rehabilitation for alcoholism is a course of treatment for an alcohol addiction, usually at a residential facility. This tends to be abstinence based and offers an intense programme of support and care aimed at people who have difficulty becoming free from alcohol dependence without such support. Alcohol rehabs often have a clinical team who can administer a detox, allowing a safer and more comfortable withdrawal from alcohol.

Drug rehabilitation

Similar to rehab for alcohol, drug rehabilitation is a course of treatment for a dependency on drugs, commonly at a residential facility. Drug rehab centres usually have a clinical team who can administer a detox, ensuring a safer and more comfortable withdrawal from drugs. One of the ways in which drug rehab works is by administering a drug detox, allowing individuals to withdraw from drugs in a safe and comfortable way. This process removes a drug’s toxins from the body and is usually the first step towards treating the problem. A detox is a gradual process that is carried out in a medically supervised environment, as sudden drug withdrawal can be life-threatening.

How long is drug and alcohol rehab?

This is a difficult question to answer outright as everyone is different. Most drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in the UK offer 28-day primary programmes as a minimum treatment length. Some individuals benefit from longer stays in treatment to help maintain their recovery. A decision on exactly how long each individual may require should really be made by a clinician during treatment.

The optimal length of drug and alcohol treatment programmes can differ depending on:

• The addiction in question.
• The individual’s history.
• The severity of the addiction.
• The presence of co-existing mental or behavioural health conditions.
• The individual’s physical, mental and emotional needs.
• It is proven that those who spend longer in rehabilitation centres achieve better rates of long abstinence.

Why choose drug and alcohol rehabilitation?

It is no secret that drug and alcohol rehabilitation will be a difficult time for you or your loved one. However, it is clear that going it alone is most definitely not the way to overcome your addiction. Support is vital in situations like this, and a drug and alcohol rehabilitation can provide all the support you need, from like-minded individuals to the dedicated staff at the rehab, at every step of the way. Drug and alcohol rehab is an environment that is entirely focussed on your recovery, without distraction or temptation.

How much does drug and alcohol rehab cost?

The cost of alcohol and drug rehab will vary depending on the level of care and treatment required. Alcohol rehab costs may also depend on the type of rehabilitation programme you choose to access. In some cases, individuals may be able to finance their rehab treatment outright; however, this isn’t always the case and often, outside help may be required.

The average cost of drug and alcohol rehab can be anything between £1,500 – £3,000 a week, subject to the type of centre or level of accommodation, facilities and treatment that is available. It is important to bear in mind that these prices are based on a weekly treatment plan, however the length of stay may vary from person to person. While some may only need a week-long treatment programme, others may require much longer courses of treatment. This will be agreed by a medical practitioner during the assessment process.
