Drug addiction and alcohol abuse are continuing problems in our society. Many people suffer in silence, allowing their addictions to worsen. This can be very dangerous, and addiction can cost a person their job and relationships and cause lasting damage to their health.
By seeking help, you are doing something many cannot do. Rehab Clinics Group is an organisation dedicated to removing shame from addiction and helping those in need. With our industry-leading care and superb treatment centres, we can help you turn your life around and become free from addiction.
Should I Choose Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab?
When it comes to rehabilitation, there are two main pathways: outpatient treatment and private inpatient treatment. Both are viable options with benefits and drawbacks.
Outpatient is when you fit treatment around your life, attending a programme in the day. This is handy if you cannot sacrifice life commitments to go away for treatment. Outpatient treatment is also cheaper and can be available for free via the NHS, but there is usually a long waiting list.
Outpatient rehab is suitable if you have a mild addiction.
Private rehab may be the only option if your issues are more severe. At a private residential facility, you will undergo a minimum 28-day programme. The facilities and accommodation are high-quality, and you will experience a range of treatments that NHS programmes cannot provide.
Moving into a private rehab also allows you to get away for a time. At a residential facility, you have the time to reset and commit to making a huge change in your life. You will be surrounded by people going through similar struggles and be supported by dedicated staff.
Private inpatient rehab is the most effective method of addiction treatment and gives the best chance of achieving your recovery goals.

After deciding that you need to book yourself into a private drug and alcohol rehab comes the process of doing so. This can be an overwhelming and emotional time for you. Rehab Clinics Group understands this, so we try to make our admissions process as simple and stress-free as possible.
With a simple phone call, you can get straight through to a member of our admissions team. Once you have clarified your desire to get treatment, we can begin the pre-admission screening. Simply, this is where our team member will ask you a series of questions about your physical and mental health, addiction and circumstances. Using the given information, we can provide you with suitable treatment options.
It’s important to note that all this is completely confidential, so you can, and should, be as honest as possible. Once this is done, an admission date can be agreed upon, and you can pay a deposit to secure your place in rehab.
For those seeking treatment on behalf of someone else, we offer several referral services, including alcohol interventions, employer referrals and much more.
Detox and Therapy Addiction Treatments
The first stage of rehab is spent detoxing. This is the process of flushing harmful toxins from your body by ceasing your ingestion of drugs and alcohol. If you have tried this before, you know withdrawal symptoms usually follow.
Side effects from detoxing can range from mild to severe. Which withdrawal symptoms you experience depend on many factors, including your addiction, medical history, addiction history and the length of time you have been an addict.
At Rehab Clinics Group, we want to make detoxification as comfortable as possible. We make use of medication to help ease symptoms administered by medical professionals. There are not many differences between alcohol detox and drug detox processes apart from possible withdrawal symptoms and your medication regime.
After detoxing, you will spend most of your time participating in our range of therapies. We utilise a combination of individual, group and well-being sessions to provide you with a well-rounded addiction treatment experience.
Psychological therapies such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are cornerstones of addiction treatment.
Alongside group therapy, these sessions can help you delve deeper into your issues and build up your confidence, problem-solving skills and how you deal with negative experiences.
Well-being therapies are there to support evidence-based treatments. Yoga, reiki and art therapy allow you the chance to unwind and take time to care for yourself. In these calmer moments, you can get into a better frame of mind and ready yourself for recovery treatment.
Aftercare and Relapse Prevention
After completing your treatment, you may believe you have cured your drug or alcohol addiction. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Along this recovery journey, you will understand that addiction is not something that is “cured” but rather something you have to live with.
Because of this, what comes after rehab is perhaps more important than the treatment itself.
There is a higher risk of relapse within the first few months of treatment. This fact and the prospect of facing the world sober for the first time in a while fill many of our clients with trepidation and fear. This is a reasonable reaction.
To help you in these initial months, Rehab Clinics Group provides access to a FREE 12-month aftercare package.
The bulk of this aftercare plan is based on attending weekly support meetings. Through these meetings, you can support and be supported by fellow recovering addicts.
You will be able to see that you are not alone on your journey. The meetings also allow you to hone the skills and techniques you learned in rehab.
Aftercare is not to be taken lightly and should be engaged with properly. It is a key component of relapse prevention, and those who take it seriously are much more likely to achieve their long-term recovery goals.
