Addiction Treatment At Rehab In Sedgley
Many people arrive at one of our clinics near Sedgley broken, both physically and mentally. Many people feel torn between leaving their job, family, and home and tackling their addiction, but most choose the latter. The people who decide to stay at home, trying to defeat their addiction alone, often fall deeper into drug and alcohol abuse, often in tragic circumstances. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Starting addiction treatment could be the best decision you ever make.
Choosing Private Residential Rehab
Private residential rehab gives you the best chance to recover from drug and alcohol addiction. The whole ethos of a rehab centre is to make addicts better, so every activity is geared to your recovery.
All good rehab centres should be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulators of health and social care in England. If you have a shortlist of rehab centres, check their rating and compare providers on the CQC website.
Drug and Alcohol rehab centres provide extra support called ‘aftercare’ to patients once they have finished treatment. Leaving the comfort and security of a rehab centre is unnerving for many patients. Drug and Alcohol rehab centres provide extra support called ‘aftercare’ to patients once they have finished treatment. Aftercare is an extension of rehab, but in the community, at locations to suit patients. Support groups, individual counselling and continuing family therapy act like a safety net and help prevent a relapse. Rehab Clinics Group provide a year of free aftercare, plus a 24-hour telephone helpline.
If you’ve got a shortlist of rehab centres, consider the types of therapy and counselling they offer. Good rehab centres should offer a variety of counselling, holistic and complementary therapies, plus fitness, nutrition and life skills classes.
Outpatient Vs Inpatient Treatment
There are two types of treatment available; as an outpatient and as an inpatient. What’s the difference?
Outpatient treatment means visiting a treatment centre every day and returning home at night. Some private rehab centres offer this option, but people mainly access outpatient services through your local NHS addiction service. There are likely to be various charities in your area that provide drug rehab.
Churches and religious groups also host outpatient drug rehab, usually in places of worship or community venues. There’s often a religious slant to recovery, which doesn’t suit everyone.
Choosing to become an outpatient depends on a few factors:
- Can you cope with a long waiting list? NHS drug treatment waiting lists are long. If you have a mild addiction and don’t think it will increase over time, outpatient services could suit you.
- Do you have family or work commitments? You may need to work in addition to completing your treatment, or your family may require you at home. Outpatient services are flexible, and you can dip in and out of support groups when you need them.
- Finances. Outpatient services such as those run by the NHS are often free. Inpatient rehab is expensive.
Starting inpatient treatment at a private clinic gives you the best chance of recovery. Here’s why:
- You’ll be looked after when you detox. All patients must complete a drug or alcohol detox when they arrive at a clinic, but you’ll do so in the care of medically qualified addiction experts.
- Every staff member specialises in drug and alcohol addiction treatment. This means that every doctor, psychiatrist, nurse, counsellor and support staff looking after you have specialist training and knowledge of addiction issues.
- Every day that you spend in rehab is geared around your recovery. You’ll spend your day attending counselling, holistic therapies, support groups and family therapy, with plenty of space for free time.
- You’ll meet other people in recovery. We’ve seen firsthand the benefits of mixing with patients. Some people become friends, drawn together by a shared experience. Knowing that you’re not alone and talking through your experiences with people who truly understand can be therapeutic in itself.

Can I refer a family member to drug and alcohol rehab?Yes, absolutely. Rehab clinics group offers a family and friend referral service for those worried about their loved one’s substance abuse. Our dedicated team can help family members through this difficult time, offering advice and guidance on the next steps to take. Throughout this process and beyond, we offer family drug support as we understand that addiction affects many people beyond the addict.
What is a medically assisted detox?Drug or alcohol detox is the process of slowly and safely removing the harmful toxins from your body caused by substances. This is done so that physically you are no longer dependent on the harmful substances and can begin to function without them. Medication is administered to help ease the worst of the withdrawal symptoms you will experience when detoxing. It is a safe process and gives you a much better chance at long-term recovery, rather than going cold turkey.
How do I begin my path to recovery?If you have recognised that you are an addict, then you’ve already taken the first step. That in itself is a victory that many people cannot face up to. After you’ve done that it is best to do some research on how you wish to undergo treatment. Do you want to undergo treatment on an inpatient or outpatient basis? Do you want to go private or with the NHS? It may seem overwhelming but reaching out to a friend or family member for help or contacting one of our team at Rehab Clinics Group is a positive next step.
