Here at ADT Healthcare, we offer drug and rehabilitation services for a variety of substance abuse disorders, ranging from alcoholism, illegal drug dependency, and prescription drug addiction.
Many people are suffering from addiction to various types of drugs and alcohol. Addiction is complex and can be defined as a brain disorder that is manifested by compulsive drug use. A person that is suffering from addiction will display an intense focus on using more than one drug or alcohol despite the dangerous consequences.
We are constantly striving to provide the best in detox and rehabilitation services to the people we are helping. When suffering from behavioural and substance addictions the best way to ensure a long-term recovery is by receiving treatment in a detox or rehab clinic.

What Is Addiction Treatment?
Drug rehabilitation, also known as addiction treatment, is the process of medical or psychotherapy methods used for the dependency of drugs and alcohol.
Prescription drugs can create a need for addiction treatment, but alcohol and illicit drug use is also a reason to seek drug rehabilitation. Addiction treatment is necessary because it can help the individual detox and eliminate their dependency on drugs.
In fact, the appropriate addiction treatment can also eliminate the social and health-related issues created by substance abuse. The following article gives an overview of the different addiction treatment options for drug dependency.
Addiction treatment clinics provide a safe and secure environment to aid recovery and we employ a dedicated team of medical professionals that are on hand every step of the way, supervising and monitoring from detoxification to rehabilitation and aftercare.
Nearly all centres offer a vast range of addiction rehabilitation treatments which help people recovering understand the nature of addiction as well as ways to lead a healthier life.
We know that trying to find the right addiction treatment for yourself or someone you love can be an overwhelming and difficult process.
That’s why we’re here to support you all day, every day by answering your questions, discussing your concerns and giving you entirely impartial and independent advice on the best way forward for you.
Addiction Treatment Options
There are short term and long-term addiction treatment options. A patient’s rehabilitation depends on the severity of their addiction. However, long-term addiction treatment options have been known to have a substantial impact on a person’s recovery and reduce the rate of recidivism.
As a chronic disease, addiction can be difficult to treat and oftentimes requires long-term treatment options. A shorter addiction treatment plan usually gives the patient time to detox and an option to get long-term addiction treatment through as an outpatient.
Listed below are some treatment options for you to consider:
All of our ADT Healthcare rehabilitation programs provide 24-hour support for a patient that has acknowledged that they need help with drug addiction or dependency.
Rehabilitation programs offer round the clock care and support for individuals with severe addictions or dependencies, who will often benefit from intensive therapy and counselling as well as medical/ detoxification assistance.
Rehab facilities are the best option for any individual as the safe and controlled environment eliminates the risk of returning to old habits, meeting old acquaintances with bad influences, and reduces the chances of the patient feeling isolated, lost, or hopeless. The highest success rates for recovery statistically stem from those who have attended full inpatient rehabilitation.
Treatment can be highly effective and is structured to address all of the issues creating an individual's drug dependency. In fact, addiction treatment is a fully licensed facility that is equipped with highly trained professionals with experience in what it takes to recover from alcohol and drugs.
Patients can be treated one-on-one and on an inpatient/outpatient basis for drug dependency. Rehabilitation programs offer the best chances at a stable and full recovery due to expert advice, a supportive community, and in-house medical staff to assist with any detoxification processes.
Short term residential treatment for drug dependency provides extensive counseling and prepares the patient for long-term care. This type of treatment is focused on detoxification and provides therapeutic care.
Short-term stay care can range anywhere between 7-14 days at a rehabilitation facility. During this time, the individual will receive therapy either in group form or one-to-one, as well as a cognitive assessment on the severity of their dependency.
A shorter program provides the patient with the foundations, toolkits, and resources for completing their journey to recovery. With our help and guidance, the individual will leave the facility after a short stay feeling more confident and capable to continue on their path to recovery.
This option is usually most beneficial for people with mild to moderate addictions or dependencies. Aftercare support is of course offered once the patient has completed the program.
Counselling & therapy can help the patient adapt to the use of medication for addiction, real-world circumstances, behaviors and attitudes about drug and alcohol use, and strengthening life skills that are centered around the patients on going recovery.
Therapeutic treatment communities provide a residential setting for severe addiction. The patient will usually stay in an facility for 6 to 12 months with the benefits of on-site staff. The goal is to change the patients attitude and behavior towards drugs to help with their recovery. The staff members serve as key benefactors in the recovery process.
Some of these therapies include:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
- Group Therapy
- 12 Step Programs
- Family Therapy
- Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Motivational Interviewing
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

Initial Assessment For Addiction Treatment
An initial drug rehabilitation assessment addresses four main issues associated with the compulsive seeking and use of alcohol and drugs. For example, the first step is determining what type of drugs and alcohol you’re dependent on.
Once the type of drugs you dependent on are thoroughly assessed, it will be easier for the patient to address their addiction. Your initial assessment will also determine the versatility of your drug dependency. This is a crucial step in formulating a successful plan of recovery for the patient.
Addressing any co-occurring mental disorders is also important because many people find themselves with a dual diagnosis. An underlining mental disorder can be responsible for the severity or nature of your dependency on drugs and alcohol.
Finally, the above steps allow the patients to get the best treatment recommendation for their addiction.

What To Look For In A Rehabilitation Facility
The journey to recovery is subjective and it is therefore essential that the patient conducts research, pre-assessments and visits the facility before registering for a short or long period.
At ADT Healthcare, we will undertake a detailed analysis of your current situation, beliefs, state of health, and of course, your own opinions and desires with regards to your own recovery. We are here to help you.
When deciding on a rehabilitation facility, it is important to consider the following options, and to discuss them with those closest to you:
- Financing options
- Treatment plans
- Medical care
- Training and life skills offered
- Leisure facilities
- Others at the facility (female-only, male-only)
Costs Of Private Rehab
The financial cost of any rehabilitation program may initially seem steep and off-putting. However, it is a given that in the long run, the accumulation of costs associated with addiction – purchasing the substance, debts amassed due to addiction, the repercussions of ill-health, unavoidable situations, and even legal penalties – will be far greater than the cost of a rehabilitation period.
Private rehabilitation is an investment in your future and health, similarly to paying for medical surgery for a life-threatening operation, an extensive membership at a leisure club, or an extension on your house which will benefit your welfare in the future.
At ADT Healthcare, although we aim to help you source publically funded facilities, most of our patients are self-funded. We strive to help you understand the costs and benefits of drug rehabilitation, the package, resources and facilities that are included in the price, and also your insurance coverage options.
Many of our rehabilitation centers are also willing to receive payment through medical insurance policies. It also worth considering contacting your local authority with an application for funding, and ADT Healthcare can aid you with this process.
Your local GP may also be able to assist with funding for alcohol or drug rehabilitation, so it is always worth booking an appointment with your local doctor when considering a rehabilitation or detox program.
Private rehabilitation is a fast-track to receiving the help you deserve. Publically-funded rehabs are available but waiting lists often stretch over months and even years: while private rehab admittance can take anywhere between 12 hours to 3 days.
After reaching out to us here at ADT Healthcare, a caring and expert addictions counsellor will give you a free assessment of your situation.
This will help us select the best form of treatment for your particular problems and circumstances. We then explain all your options to you and help you choose what you want to do next and what your next steps should be.
If you are calling on behalf of someone you care about and have concerns that they will resist treatment or refuse to recognise that they have a problem, we’ll talk you through a safe and sensible way to intervene with their problems.
We do understand that trying to intervene for someone you love is an immensely difficult and upsetting situation to be in, but we will be there to support and advise you every step of the way.
