Before you are admitted, one of the trained members of staff will speak with you and make an assessment of your personal needs. Each patient will have different requirements and a doctor will perform a medical on you to determine what these are. You will also be prescribed any relevant medication at this point.
Once you arrive at the facility, you will undergo a medical examination by a highly trained and professional doctor. A detox plan will then be made. This may be an anxious time but you can rest assured that your health will remain the top priority throughout the process and your detox will be monitored at all times so that any health concerns can be quickly addressed,

What Are My Rehab Options?
The most favoured type of alcohol detox is an inpatient service, this is intense yet extremely effective. However, this may not be suitable for everyone so there are options to choose from. Below we have listed your rehab options:
Inpatient treatment is intense and detailed and can last anywhere between four and twelve weeks depending on your personal needs.
This type of treatment is not usually offered on the NHS so it is normally taken with a private clinic.
Whilst taking part in an inpatient program you can expect to take a detox, have access to rehab therapy, and a range of aftercare options.
The NHS may offer a variety of outpatient programs for those struggling with alcohol addiction and during the process, you will visit one of their facilities to receive support.
Whilst going through the detox portion of the treatment, you will be seen daily but after this, your treatment will be less frequent and will make use of community support groups and charity groups.
Whilst taking part in an outpatient program, your doctor will prescribe any necessary medication to help you through the process.
Detox is the process through which you rid your body of alcohol and break your tolerance of the substance. This is done by not taking any more alcohol and allowing your body to go through withdrawal.
The good news is that for the most part, medication is offered as a way of limiting the effects of withdrawal making it much easier to cope with.
That being said, there are options to undergo a non-medical detox but it is important that this is supervised.
Once your detox is complete, it is then important to address the psychological aspect of your addiction - the reason why you may have become addicted to begin with.
As well as gaining an understanding of this, you will also be given the opportunity to learn techniques to cope in the future, this means that relapse is much less likely.
Understanding Withdrawal In Rehab
As you detox from alcohol, you will experience some withdrawal symptoms, these can vary in intensity from person to person and it is possible to treat them medically.
When the alcohol levels in the blood drop after prolonged use, the body is physically and psychologically affected, this is what we know as withdrawal. There are only two ways to stop withdrawal – drink more alcohol or allow the body to go through the process.
When attending rehab, the staff will always ensure that you get through the withdrawal stage as comfortably as possible and will always be on hand to offer support.
Some of the symptoms you can expect to experience may be trouble sleeping, increased heart rate, sweating, shaking, headache, nausea, and anxiety. But it is important to remember that these will pass.
Benefits Of A Medically-Assisted Alcohol Detox
The most notable benefit of taking a medically assisted alcohol detox is that you will always have easy access to treatment and support, especially in the case of an emergency. When detoxing from alcohol, there are many risks to your health including potential death but with a medically assisted detox, these risks are significantly lowered.
In addition to this, you will be prescribed a variety of medications to help you through this difficult time this will include those to help with withdrawal as well as those for underlying medical conditions.
What Is The Rehab Process?
When entering into rehab, you will go through four different phases. Each of these phases is equally important and going through them will ensure that relapse becomes highly unlikely. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect from each of these phases.
The first phase involved your initial assessment and admission to the rehab facility. You will be given a medical examination both in a physical and psychological sense and prescribed any medication deemed necessary.
You will also be asked questions about your life including details about your addiction if there is a family history of substance, any health conditions, and any financial issues.
This portion of your treatment is designed to rid your body of all traces of alcohol. You can expect to experience withdrawal symptoms at this time but medication will be available to help you better deal with this.
You will now take part in a variety of treatments and therapies designed to maintain sobriety. Depending on your personal circumstances this can be done either as an inpatient or an outpatient.
4. Recovery and aftercare
The final stage of treatment comes in the form of aftercare, which you will have access to indefinitely after rehab in the form of community support groups, regular check-ups, and the 12-step program.
What Does A Typical Day In Rehab Look Like?
Entering into a rehab facility can be overwhelming but understanding what to expect on a day in rehab can ease your anxiety. Each morning you will be expected to get up and ready for the day, you will also be provided with a nutritious breakfast.
You may also be offered access to activities such as yoga and group sessions. The idea of mornings in rehab is to create a relaxed and calm environment, ready for the more intensive afternoon activities.
After eating a healthy midday meal, you will then begin various therapies, these may include CBT, group therapy, and individual talking therapies. You may also have access to various family therapies and this can go a long way in allowing your family and loved ones to support you through this time.
During the afternoon, you will also have some free time to do the things you enjoy such as sports, swimming or reading.
After your evening meal, there will normally be another group meeting that focuses on the 12-step program, after this, you will be encouraged to sleep at a healthy time in order to re-establish a routine.

How To Help A Loved One To Rehab
It can be difficult for a person struggling with addiction to admit that they need help, or they may simply feel anxious about attending a rehab program. But there are ways in which you can make the process easier on them.
Taking an empathetic approach can be much more effective than coming from an opposing point of view, try to gain an understanding of how the person is feeling and ask questions, allowing them to feel in control.
Those struggling with addiction often struggle also with boundaries and so setting healthy boundaries from the get-go can be very important. In addition to this, allowing the person to take responsibility for their actions and be held accountable may encourage them to see that there is a problem.
If you are struggling to help your loved one understand that they need help it is not unreasonable to call for back up. Whether this is simply getting someone else to talk to them or staging an intervention, this can reinforce what you are saying.
What Happens After Rehab?
Once your rehab is complete, the support does not simply end. You will be offered a variety of aftercare options to ensure that you remain sober.
- Individual therapy will allow you to access support from a trained therapist who can provide you with the tools to stay on the right path. This might involve things like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and talking therapy
- Checkups will ensure that you remain in good health and will give you a chance to talk through any concerns you may have. At these assessments, both your physical and mental health will be observed
- 12-step programs offer patients the opportunity to work through their issues by admitting that they have an issue and can also involve a spiritual aspect
- Alternative support groups give you the chance to meet other people with similar problems and access support within the community. You might also access a support group that is tailored to certain aspects of your life such as one within the LGBTQ+ community. These can feel more personal
