The long-term use of drugs or alcohol can lead to a dependency, leaving you with a psychological and physical addiction.
By definition a drug or alcohol addiction creates a strong compulsion to keep using the substance, even when you know there will be negative consequences.
You can also start to feel withdrawal symptoms – which can be severe – when you do not have access to the substance involved.
This makes it very difficult to break the vicious cycle of addiction without outside help. One of the most effective ways to beat addiction is the process known as rehabilitation.
This involves a number of treatments and therapies delivered as a holistic programme with the sole intention of helping you to get clean and sober and, just as importantly, to stay that way in the long term.

What to expect from Rehab in Buckingham
Everyone struggling with an addiction problem is an individual with their own unique situation, problems and needs.
A thorough admissions process will incorporate interviews and medical examinations and experts with years of experience in addiction treatment and recovery will work to draw up a tailored treatment plan that will have the best chance of helping you.
The medical tests will also ensure that you can safely undertake any programme drawn up. We also offer family and employer referrals for when someone you know is struggling with addiction or substance misuse issues.
Some people respond better to certain treatments and approaches than others, but there are still some common elements that you are likely to experience. One is a detoxification programme, which is the period during which you process and get rid of the drugs or alcohol already in your system.
This will be accompanied by a range of different therapies and treatments. These addiction treatments will aim to help you explore the root causes of your addiction and substance misuse, to change the way you think and behaving in relation to drugs and alcohol and to generally live a healthier lifestyle.
Why choose a Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Buckingham?
The two main ways of treating alcohol and drug addiction are via outpatient or community-based programmes and via a stay at a residential rehab.
Community-based treatment is commonly offered on the NHS and involves the patient managing their own appointments and turning up for treatment sessions – which may take place at different venues. This can be difficult to manage when dealing with an addiction and you will also be subject to the temptations and triggers that are associated with your usual drinking or drug taking.
At a private drug and alcohol rehab you will be in a safe and tranquil environment without those temptations and triggers. You will have access to round the clock support and medical supervision, as well as having the time you need to really focus on your treatment programme.
This will be organised to make the best use of your time but there will also be time for leisure and socialising, if you choose to do so.
What happens during Drug and Alcohol Detox?
Another huge benefit of attending a drug or alcohol rehab centre in Buckingham is that you will be able to undergo a medically supervised detox, or detoxification. This is the part of the recovery process where you flush the toxins from your system
This can be a very difficult and even dangerous time, as the process is usually accompanied by withdrawal symptoms and these can be severe.
The precise details of the detox regime will vary depending on the substance involved and other factors such as the heaviness and length of usage. The withdrawal symptoms will also vary depending on these and other factors but you will be offered medications designed to ease this process if it is appropriate.
Approved medicines are set out by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and will be prescribed by doctors following appropriate guidelines. This ensures that the detox is as easy as possible while still remaining safe.
What Addiction Treatment Therapies are available?
Detox is an important stage of any recovery but so is relapse prevention. There is little point going through the pain of withdrawal if you are just going to start using again, but a range of treatments and therapies can give you the tools you need to avoid doing just that.
Talking therapies just as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group therapy and different kinds of psychotherapy and counselling are all commonly used in addiction treatment programmes.
There may also be more cutting edge treatments that you can try, such as Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Biofeedback Therapy, Low Level Laser Therapy and Satori Chair Therapy. Some of these may sound daunting but we are always on the lookout for innovative new treatments and therapies – as long as they are shown to be both safe and effective.
How long does Rehab take?
The length of rehab can vary depending on the type and severity of the alcohol or drug addiction. Some stays may be as short as a week, taking in mainly the detox period, but 28 days is a more common duration for a complete rehab programme. Some programmes may take longer but your options will be discussed during the admissions process.
How much does Rehab in Buckingham cost?
The cost of staying in a private rehab can vary quite widely, depending on the length of stay, the facilities and the details of the rehab programme. We work with a lot of different rehab clinics, from the luxurious to the more affordable. We can fully discuss costs when we know what you are looking for, but in general the cost of staying in rehab can be viewed as an investment. This is because the monetary and personal costs of not addressing an addiction problem are almost always far higher.
What happens after I leave Rehab?
When you leave rehabilitation you will still need support and a personalised aftercare plan with Rehab Clinics Group can give you that vital support just when you need it.
