Why Consider Rehab in Birmingham?
Drug and alcohol rehab provides you with a solid foundation and support programme designed to assist in long-lasting addiction recovery.
When considering whether to choose rehab as your preferred addiction treatment option in Birmingham there are a few things that you would need to weigh up.
One question is whether you should undertake outpatient or inpatient rehab treatment. Outpatient rehab does not require you to stay overnight at a residential rehab clinic whereas inpatient does.
When comparing both outpatient and inpatient rehab then it’s important to consider how severe your addiction is. Inpatient is considered a safer option for individuals suffering from chronic addiction due to the medical support provided through detoxification.
Rehab Clinics Group provides inpatient rehab treatment programmes that are carried out in facilities-based near Birmingham and throughout the UK.
All our facilities aim to provide a comfortable and supportive environment that is perfect for anyone undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol addictions.
Many individuals undertaking drug and alcohol rehab can sometimes feel like the challenge is too big, this is why our team of addiction recovery specialists are always on hand to provide as much support as possible throughout your stay.
It can be almost impossible to undergo a drug or alcohol detox from home and can be dangerous as you don’t have medications and medical support to help you manage any withdrawal symptoms experienced. Plus, being at home means you’re still surrounded by temptation and triggers which could cause you to relapse.
Our rehab programmes help you to live a drug-free life. This typically involves a diagnostic test and psychological examinations to create the best treatment programme for you. Being surrounded by medical advice massively increases your chances of recovery and the opportunity to build healthy habits.
We help with people suffering in all areas of their lives, so we’re focused on strategies to calm your mind, reduce temptation and offer nutritional advice to manifest a healthier version of you.

What Happens During Rehab?
Drug and alcohol rehab provides individuals with the tools needed to live a substance-free life. This is done through a number of evidence-based practices intended to heal both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction.
When undergoing addiction treatment at one of our inpatient residential rehab facilities you can expect a full pre-admission assessment to be carried with our onsite doctor and addiction recovery nurses. This assessment is carried out in order to get more of a clearer understanding of your addiction so the correct treatment programme can be recommended.
All addiction treatment programmes provided through our rehab clinics are completely bespoke as not every addiction is the same, a pre-admission assessment aims to discover potential root causes associated with your addiction so your treatment plan can be properly structured with the most effective therapies and treatments.
Upon admission into one of our rehab centres, you will be medically examined and if deemed fit enough by our doctor you will start a full drug and alcohol detox to remove all harmful toxins from your body.
The detox stage of treatment is often seen as the most difficult as you may experience some uncomfortable side effects, these are called withdrawal symptoms. Any withdrawal symptoms experienced are constantly monitored by onsite care staff who can prescribe medication to provide any relief if needed.
Once you have finished the detox phase of treatment you will then move on to the psychological treatment phase of rehab which includes undertaking a number of therapy sessions designed to help you understand the nature of your addiction and how to best deal with any triggers or behavioural patterns associated with it.
Upon completion of treatment, you will then be expected to return to normal life, but ongoing support is still provided long after treatment in the form of our 12 free aftercare plan which will give you access to our aftercare support team with regular meetings taking place every week and a 24-hour support line that is free for you to call if any urgent assistance is needed.
How Do Drugs and Alcohol Affect The Body?
If you are still considering whether to receive drug and alcohol rehab in Birmingham then it’s important to also consider the health impacts that not getting treatment for substance abuse disorder has on the body.
Drug and alcohol addiction should never be taken lightly, and if you’re seeking addiction treatment, it’s critical to understand how drugs affect your body. Sometimes, we’re aware that substances are bad for our physical and mental wellbeing, but we can’t comprehend to what extent they’re ruining our health.
If you’re consuming drugs or alcohol on a regular basis, you’re likely to have a serious accident, as when you’re intoxicated, you’re not aware of your surroundings, decisions or conscience. Many of the long-term effects of prolonged drug and alcohol use include organ damage, erratic mood behaviour, and even the risk of cancer.
However, if you’re not yet seeking treatment services for your substance abuse, you’re likely apprehensive and frightened of the side effects of the comedown. This typically includes sweats, insomnia, migraines, hunger and severe mood swings. As these withdrawal symptoms can sometimes be so severe, people relapse and return to taking drugs and alcohol if they’re not engaged in a proper rehabilitation programme.
But, on admission to one of our rehab centres, we’re right by your side during any difficult times.
Why Is Detoxing An Essential Part Of Drug And Alcohol Rehab?
Before beginning treatment, everyone has to detox so the chemicals in your brain can revert back to their normal state before drug and alcohol misuse. A medical detox involves stopping taking all substances as a way to get used to your new way of life. This process cleans out the substance from your body.
Restoring normal chemical balance is needed to help teach your brain how to live without access to the substances it has become dependant on.
Willpower is a huge part of pushing past this point, but many people experience withdrawal symptoms which are often so severe that they revert back to taking drugs and alcohol. However, with professional help, you’ll be prescribed medication to provide relief. Having medically-trained staff on-call also means that they’re never too far away to check your progress and review your health.
Once you physically stop craving drugs or alcohol, you’re ready to take the next step in our rehab centre.

What Therapies Are Provided During Rehab?
At Rehab Clinics Group, we offer a plethora of therapy to aid your recovery and help to prevent any relapses once you leave rehab. Therapy is extremely important to ensure that you’re connected with the present moment and fully aware of your choices – including any consequences.
Therefore, we offer numerous types of therapy to provide a variety for your recovery. We require all applicants to engage in our therapy programmes to assist in your recovery. Don’t worry if you’re unsure which one best suits you, as you can discuss this with your support worker along with your recovery plan.
For example, Relapse Prevention provides you with coping skills to prepare you for life after you’ve completed your rehab programme. If you experience a strong urge to use, resist temptation and talk to a supportive person.
We provide aftercare treatment, so we’re always on the end of the phone should you need someone to talk to. You’ll find that as soon as you begin talking about your cravings, they begin to disappear and you don’t feel alone in your situation.
Typically, an urge will last around 30 minutes, so try to distract yourself with a healthy and fun activity until it passes. Keep yourself busy and focus on something else to make this time go by quicker.
Rather than waiting until a craving occurs, engage in healthy and mindful activities which keep you in a pleasant state of mind so you decrease the chances of relapse. Relaxation techniques are a great strategy for it. When you’re feeling tense, you’re more likely to reach for a substance for a quick-fix. So, learning how to relax improves your chances of living in sobriety.
Finally, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a huge part of the therapy we offer, and everyone who applies to our rehab centres will receive CBT.
You might have to reach rock bottom until you make it out the other side. Don’t suffer in silence. Give us a call on 03301 596 494 or e-mail email@example.com for further advice and support on our treatment programmes and what to expect in our rehab clinics.
