Why go to residential rehab?

It is almost unanimous within the addiction treatment community that going to rehab is the best possible option for people living with addiction. The alternative is to attend outpatient counselling sessions. However, because you are not physically removed from destructive habits, it’s all too easy to attend these counselling sessions just to fool yourself that you are taking action.
Attending a residential rehab clinic will absolutely ensure you do not have access to drugs and alcohol. Thus, attending a drug and alcohol rehab is not merely about appeasing yourself that you are taking action. Instead, going to rehab is about implementing real and lasting change in your life.

This includes group therapy, individual therapy, holistic therapies, cognitive therapy and behavioural therapy. Also, your overall treatment programme will be fully tailored to your needs. You will not begin a ‘one-size-fits-all’ type of treatment programme. Instead, a full assessment will be carried out upon arrival, and a customised treatment programme will be designed to fit your needs.
Step 1: Undergoing detox
When you begin your rehab, you will be detoxed using medication. You will not be expected to face withdrawal symptoms without clinical support. The withdrawal process is potentially lethal if you are addicted to drugs such as opiates and alcohol, so it is essential that you are correctly monitored by medical professionals during this period.
Step 2: Counselling and therapy
The good news is that the detox process will be completed in around 7 days. You will still have an ample amount of time to undergo therapy and counselling sessions. During these sessions, you will benefit from a community of people who are also in recovery. This experience will give you the faith and belief that you too can turn your recovery into a success.
Types of therapies employed at drug and alcohol rehabs in Derbyshire include:
- Group therapy
- Individual therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Holistic therapies
- Dialectical behaviour therapy
- Educational workshops
- Mindfulness and yoga
- Activities taking place in spots of natural beauty
The rehab clinic you attend will decide which particular therapies to focus on by having regard to your needs. For instance, if you suffer from anxiety and depression, it’s likely you will benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy upfront. If you suffer from social anxiety, it’s likely you will begin treatment with individual therapy sessions before you begin to participate in group therapy sessions.
Once your rehab programme is complete, you will be armed with the emotional regulation and interpersonal skills needed to help you avoid relapse. You will thus be given the strength the sustain your recovery for the long term.
Preventing relapse in the future
Without stating the obvious, one of the major aims of drug and alcohol rehab in Derbyshire is to help you avoid relapse. The achieve this aim, you will be introduced to the 12 Step framework. This is by far the most popular abstinence-model in the United Kingdom, and fellowship meetings are held across Derbyshire by organisations such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. Attending meetings is a powerful means of sustaining your recovery, and you will tap into the resources of a wide and diverse recovery community.
Once you have lived without drugs and alcohol for more than a year, it’s likely your recovery will be a permanent fixture in your life. However, getting past that first-year milestone is difficult, and you should never underestimate the very real threat of relapse that will probably hang over your head for the rest of your life. This threat is particularly a problem during the first year of your recovery because it is during this time that you are likely to experience cravings for drugs and alcohol.
To ensure you survive your first year in recovery, drug and alcohol rehabs in Derbyshire offer aftercare. Aftercare is a buzzword in the addiction rehab industry, and aftercare has gained popularity because it works. In the past, you typically had to pay extra to access aftercare, but the vast majority of rehabs offer aftercare for free. This is the moral thing to do, given the fact that aftercare really isn’t an added luxury. Instead, aftercare is an essential element of any well-designed rehab programme.
Addiction is not considered a moral failing. Instead, addiction is a neurological illness affecting the brain. Addiction is also a behavioural disorder. Addiction alters the brain’s neurological pathways. These alterations particularly affect dopamine pathways. Dopamine is linked to pleasure. Addiction triggers are cues that cause dopamine to be released.
When you are addicted, the mere thought of drinking or using drugs will trigger dopamine to be released. However, for you to experience the desired amount of pleasure, you must actually fulfil the act of drinking or using drugs. If you do not drink or use drugs, you will begin to experience anxiety. This anxiety is also known as cravings. The good news is that when you enter sobriety, pathways that cause these cravings will begin to fade away.
However, it may take 2-3 years for these pathways within the brain to reseed to the point where you no longer experience daily cravings for drugs and alcohol. This is why it is so important to attend aftercare sessions and support groups during this period. Once you have lived in recovery for many years, it’s likely you will not require any support whatsoever.
Paying for your rehab treatment
The good news is that treatment is available no matter what your budget may be. In fact, there are a number of council-funded options. You really need to access the advantages and disadvantages of funded treatment. The key advantage of funded treatment is that it is free.
However, gaining this funding will almost certainly mean you must submit to a lengthy waiting list. Your application for funding must also be assessed by a funding committee, and for many people in need of treatment, their funding application is rejected for a variety of reasons.
Another option is to fund your treatment costs yourself by opting to undergo rehab at a private clinic. The chief benefit of this is that you can gain access to treatment immediately. There are a variety of rehab clinics charging different pricing depending upon the level of service you desire. There are many affordable treatment options in Derbyshire, and you may access a detox programme for around £2,500. If you wish to undergo a full rehab for 28-days, prices typically start at £6,000.
