What is a Rehab for Drug addiction?

A drug rehab center is a facility where a person can access residential treatment for drug rehabilitation. During rehab drugs the person has been taken will be assessed and the need to be assisted through a medical detox ascertained (if there is a physical dependence). A number of addictions can benefit from rehab, drugs such as alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and cannabis amongst others.

It is vital a drug addiction program is not taken lightly as withdrawal from certain drugs can be life threatening or extremely uncomfortable. The detox should take place in an environment where professionals are there to support the person through the process. Once the person is free from drugs, drug rehab clinics will focus on the psychological side of the dependence. It is important that during rehab drugs addiction becomes clearly understood, as well the reasons for relapse.

When should someone seek a Rehab Center?

When a substance dependence is present a number of behaviours will emerge, financial problems will quickly become apparent. Unreliability, keeping strange hours, and being secretive are all indicators of an addiction problem. You may also notice an increase in new friends, who don’t seem “quite right”.

If the person cannot quit entirely when they honestly want to or have little or no control over the amount consumed, then it is likely that during admission to a residential programme will be dealt with successfully.

In rehab drug addiction which has reached severe levels or which has failed to respond to out-patient treatments is more likely to be successfully treated.

Types of Rehab

During rehab drug addiction will be treated intensively and also provides the person some time away from their normal environment to really focus on getting better.

If someone cannot or will not access inpatient treatment then alternative treatment options are available, such as home detox. If they do wish to go, we can advise all concerned on the safest and most comfortable private rehab, drugs addiction specialists in the UK.

Where private treatment is not affordable you may wish to consider treatment services provided by local NHS and voluntary organisations. Typically access to treatment and other services on the NHS can involve long waiting lists.

How long could treatment at a Rehab Center take?

The duration of residential rehab will vary depending on the particular situation. Drug and alcohol rehab clinics in the UK usually offer programmes between 4 and 12 weeks long. Regardless of the length of treatment, an attitude of ‘seeing it through’ is central to effectiveness.
