If you’re suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, you’re certainly not alone. In the Derby area alone, there are a surprising number of people with all types of addictions, and they come from all walks of life. It can be difficult to get people with addictions to face up to their problems and seek help, but by looking for effective drug and alcohol rehab in Derby, they’ve often taken the first step towards getting better.
Rehab Clinics Group offer world-class addiction therapy in centres across the UK and in Spain. Residential rehab has often been shown to be the best way to overcome an addiction, allowing you to get away from temptation and undergo intensive therapy, and by committing to 28 days in a rehab centre, you could change your life.
Do I need drug and alcohol rehab in Derby?
Drinking or using drugs has become socially acceptable in the UK, and it’s not uncommon to see groups of drunk people at the weekend in Derby, or for friends to offer you drugs on a night out. But when does casual use become an addiction, and is it time for you to go to a drug or alcohol rehab clinic?
The signs of addiction can vary depending on the substance and the severity of your addiction, but one way that people can tell if they might have a problem is to answer the following simple questions:
- Have you ever wanted to cut down on drugs or alcohol?
- Do you feel angry or annoyed when people criticise your drinking or drug use?
- Do you feel guilty or ashamed when you drink or use drugs?
- Have you had to drink or use drugs in the morning to get yourself going, or to get over a hangover?
- Do you often drink or use drugs alone?
If you answer yes to any of the above, then you might benefit from help and support. The Rehab Clinics Group offer a free telephone assessment where we’ll ask lots of questions about your patterns of behaviour to determine if we’re the right choice for you.
How does drug and alcohol rehab work?
When you arrive at one of our clinics, the first step will be to give you a full assessment. This is important to ensure you get the right support and treatment when you stay with us.
People who are addicted to drugs or alcohol will often still have these substances in their system when they arrive at our clinics. That’s why we put you through a full detox for the first few days, so you can get everything out of your system. Detox is often the most difficult part of your stay with us, and you may get withdrawal symptoms once these substances leave your body. We’ll offer you prescription medication to ease your symptoms, and you’ll have plenty of help and support during the process.
You’re likely to feel much better after detox, with a clear head and a new determination, but it’s important that you don’t go straight home as you’re more likely to relapse. Your stay with us will be 28 days in length, which means you have time to go through a full treatment programme that includes behavioural therapy, designed to help you stay clean and sober for life.
An advantage of looking for a clinic in Derbyshire, as opposed to being an outpatient, is that you get to try a wider range of therapies. While you stay with us, you get to try sessions of yoga, mindfulness and other holistic therapies. You’ll also enjoy nutritious meals prepared by our chef, and can take part in regular exercise, helping to heal your body after addiction.
Will I have to stay away from alcohol and drugs in the long term?
When you search for drug and alcohol rehab in Derby, you’ll find many different types of programmes, some of which claim to allow you to still drink or take drugs, just teaching you moderation. However, if you ask our addiction counsellors, many of whom have personal experience of addiction, whether this is possible, they’re likely to say no. Trying to stop after a few drinks, or taking recreational drugs on weekends, just isn’t possible if you have the disease of addiction, so our aim is to help you stay abstinent for life.
We understand that those suffering from substance abuse can’t be completely cured in 28 days, which is why we offer a year of free aftercare to everyone who finishes their programme with us. These regular support groups are a great way to keep in touch with us, and help you navigate life outside of rehab.
How quickly can I get help?
At the Rehab Clinics Group, we’re often contacted by people looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Derby who want admission as soon as possible. A big advantage of private rehab is that there aren’t waiting lists, and we don’t ask for a GP referral, so we can often get a bed for you or your loved one in just 48 hours. If someone agrees to go into rehab, then the last thing you want is a long delay, as it gives them time to change their mind or for the addiction to worsen. That’s why we have a quick and simple admissions process, and take care of all the arrangements, so all you need to do is pack and get ready to change your life.
