While the number of people with alcohol or drug addiction is on the rise in the UK, the NHS is underfunded, so it can be extremely difficult to find effective treatment. If you’re looking for addiction treatment in West Bromwich, then you may be considering going private, as you can skip the waiting list and get the best treatment to suit your specific needs. Those who are looking for drug and alcohol rehab in West Bromwich should call the Rehab Clinics Group, which offer rehab across the UK and in Spain, allowing you to get the help you need.
Choosing a rehabilitation centre
While there are many kinds of treatment available for addiction, in our experience, residential rehab is one of the most effective options. While you’ll find local providers who offer outpatient treatment, these kinds of programmes can often be difficult, as you’re still at home where it’s easy to relapse. If you’re stuck in negative behavioural patterns, it can be difficult to overcome these issues while going through outpatient rehab, so it can often be better to spend time away from home.
The Rehab Clinics Group have a selection of clinics in the UK, as well as one in Spain, so you have lots of options. People travelling from West Bromwich have an advantage, as they’re centrally based and not too far from most of our clinics. You can opt to stay in the suburbs of London, close to the sea in Blackpool, or even take a flight from Birmingham to our Spanish rehab centre. You may have a preference for where you stay, or you may simply want to go to the place which offers the quickest admission. Either way, you can be sure you’ll get high quality treatment at all our clinics.
Is rehab suitable for me?
If you’ve decided to search for drug and alcohol rehab in West Bromwich, then this is a good sign that you’re ready for treatment. Denial is a big part of addiction, and it keeps you in a cycle of addictive behaviour, but if you’re finally realising that you have a drug or alcohol addiction, then this is an excellent step towards getting better.
The Rehab Clinics Group is often contacted by people who aren’t quite sure whether attending rehab is for them. That’s why we offer a free initial telephone consultation, which gives you time to ask lots of questions and means we can decide whether rehab is suitable for you. Of course, we also carry out a full assessment on admission too, which means we can tailor treatment to your needs.
We often hear from people who want to help loved ones who have addictions. While we can’t force anyone into treatment, we can help you encourage your family member to take the gift of treatment, with options such as interventions that can be effective in helping people face up to their problems.
How does rehab work?
When you arrive at one of our clinics for drug and alcohol rehab, you’ll usually have to go through a detox. Most people who come to us still have drugs or alcohol in their system, and it’s important that you’re sober to ensure rehab is effective. Detox is hard work, so we ensure you’ve got a comfortable environment while you go through the process, and we offer 24/7 support in all our rehab clinics. If you get withdrawal symptoms, we can offer prescription medication to ease you through the process.
Once you’ve gone through detox, you can begin your treatment programme, which is designed to give you the tools to stay off alcohol and drugs for life. You’ll go to regular therapy sessions, which are both individual and group centred, and include scientifically proven techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Group therapy is a great way to work with others in a similar situation to you and share your experiences. There are also workshops where you can learn about relapse prevention and other skills to help you on the outside.
Spending time at a treatment centre also gives you time away from your day to day life so you can relax and recover. Opting for drug and alcohol rehab in West Bromwich gives you the opportunity to enjoy 24/7 support in a pleasant environment, with everything taken care of from your meals to laundry. Facilities vary at each of our clinics, but there are usually options such as single rooms and en-suite accommodation, so you can get peace and privacy.
Life after rehab treatment
When you’ve completed treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, you’ll no doubt be keen to get on with life and start to enjoy your new sober lifestyle. However, the first year after rehab is when you’re most likely to relapse, so aftercare is an important part of the process.
Complete 28 days at one of our clinics, and you’ll get 12 months of free aftercare, which can help you stay on track after rehab. These weekly sessions are held in all our clinics, so you can choose the most convenient one for you, and they allow you to stay in touch with others who’ve gone through our programmes. You may also want to join local groups that offer 12-step programmes, such as Alcoholics or Narcotics, both of which offer excellent long term support.
