Getting Help For Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Gloucester
Addiction treatment provided by Rehab Clinics Group is compassionate, forward-thinking and balanced, allowing you the correct blend of rehabilitation, detoxification and therapies. Our addiction treatment programmes are personalised, and you will be consulted at every step of the way. As although you have admitted you need help, now you need to seek the right help. This can be daunting as there are so many facilities, all offering different treatments and programme styles.
That is why Rehab Clinic Groups is here to help to identify your treatment needs and any preferences you may have; programme length, location and aftercare options, for example.
If left untreated, addiction can cause the loss of a job, financial security and worst of all, becoming estranged from your family or friends. You could even fall into crime to fund your habit, all happening in a very short period of time. So accessing the right treatment is extremely important.
As every person is different, the treatment they need for their drug or alcohol addiction vary on a case-by-case basis. Even two people suffering from an addiction to the same substances may require very different approaches. This is why all our clinics create bespoke treatment programmes for each client.
Kinds of treatment available
There are many options available, and it is essential to choose the kind that works best for you. There are free options available via the NHS and charity solutions in the Gloucester region. But these solutions come with the cost of waiting lists – whilst on a waiting list, your addiction may worsen.
Rehab Clinics Group offer a variety of treatments, both inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient options allow you to recover in the privacy and safety of our clinic, allowing you to put all your concentration into your recovery. Outpatient options allow you to return home in the evenings if your home environment is supportive and conducive to recovering from addiction.
We will work with you to find the best private drug and alcohol rehab for you – whether that be residential treatment, inpatient or outpatient treatment.
Rehab is so often the best course of treatment for an addict is because it allows you to fully immerse yourself in your recovery. You will be unlikely to recover in the long term if you do not undergo a period of detox.
The purpose of a detox is to end your dependency on addictive substances. Sustained use of drugs or alcohol will result in your body and brain being dependent on the use of substances for you to just get through a day. With a detox, your access to the substance you’re addicted to is slowly tapered away, with the amount you receive gradually being reduced. This is a much better recovery experience as suddenly ending all-access could cause a very negative reaction from your body through painful withdrawal symptoms.
Whilst you will still encounter withdrawal symptoms when on a tapered detox, this will be less painful than it would be if your access to substances was suddenly cut off. As part of a medically assisted detox, you can be issued with prescription medication by our medical team. This medication acts as a sedative and allows you to get through the worst of your detoxification.
As part of your treatment, you will undergo therapy. Therapy is an important part of your addiction treatment programme, as it helps to identify why you have developed an addiction and to address those reasons. This is an important part of relapse prevention because addicts who only receive treatment for addiction and not the cause of their addiction do not tend to have long-term recovery.
Your therapy is provided on an individual and group basis and includes the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). These therapies allow you to change your behaviours and thoughts – and this is critical to overcoming addiction in the long term.

What are the 3 obvious signs of addiction?
Someone who is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience a period of significant weight loss. Their personality will also rapidly change, as they will become increasingly hostile and isolated. They are also likely to experience financial difficulties as they attempt to fund their habit and will not hesitate to commit crimes if required to ensure they are able to access the substances they are addicted to.
What is the difference between private drug and alcohol rehab and residential rehab?
Residential rehab is the best treatment plan for those who have a difficult home life or could easily be coaxed back into a life of addiction. Residential rehab is an ideal opportunity to completely concentrate on your recovery. It is an opportunity to press the reset button on your life and take time away from distractions and bad influences in the safety of our care.
What happens after rehab?
When your treatment has been finalised, you’ll receive one of our personalised aftercare plans. An aftercare plan is as important as any treatment you will have had in your rehab so far. You will need to ensure that you stick to this plan rigidly, as you will need to take responsibility for your own recovery after you leave our care. Rehab Clinics Group will provide you with all the information you require, and the skills required to live a life free of drugs or alcohol.
You will also have access to a 24-hour helpline and regular follow up sessions to ensure your recovery continues long after you leave our care.
