If you or a loved one are struggling with substance abuse finding the right rehab in Leicestershire or elsewhere in the U.K., seems overwhelming. We can provide all of the information that you need to find treatment available, including locations, treatment and prices, to help you with a speedy admission.
What to look for in a rehab
For most of us, rehab exists on T.V. or in films, and ideas vary from realistic to bizarre. This makes it hard to know what to look for when you decide to research rehab options. Below are the main features to consider when looking at rehab in the U.K.
- Can they treat you?
The very first question should be: does this rehab treat what you or a loved one have? Most rehabs take a wide range of substance abuse, but there are often specialities and exceptions. Be sure to mention all the dependencies you struggle with, as some drug addictions may require specific facilities or supervision.
- Types of therapies available in Leicestershire rehabs
In rehabilitation in Leicestershire, the main treatments are medical detox, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), and a fitness and health improvement program. All rehab we recommend will offer these options. If you have a specific treatment in mind, such as aromatherapy, art, music or animal therapy, mention this to our experts.
- Where do you want to be?
We highly recommend residential rehab clinics in Leicestershire, where you move in and stay until your treatment is complete. This will be a completely abstinent place where you will not be exposed to any addictive substances. It would help if you also decided whether you want to stay in your local area or make some space between you and your everyday life. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Visits and a quicker admission are easier if you stay in your local area. On the other hand, it is easier to press pause on your addiction fuelled life if you have some physical distance.
- What can you afford?
Depending on your budget, you can compromise on any of the above, except treatment. We do not recommend accepting different core treatments to save money. You may, however, be comfortable sharing a room, going to a more rural location or compromising on the holistic treatments included in your package. Our team can advise you on all aspects of drug and alcohol treatment costs in Leicestershire and where you can get the most for your budget.
Pros and cons of private rehab
Many start out looking for rehab in the public sector. This makes sense as a substantial amount of medical help in the U.K. is done through the NHS and our first call is often the GP. However, the national health service only offers a handful of free rehab spaces. Private drug and alcohol rehab in Leicestershire, on the other hand, is plentiful and available at a range of prices to suit most budgets. Below are some of the advantages and disadvantages of private treatment.
- Completely abstinent living environment.
- Medical supervision for your detox 24/7.
- Treatment in-house eliminates the need to travel and wait for therapy.
- Bespoke rehab plans that evolve with you.
- Routine and structure each day.
- Review and discuss your treatment plan daily.
- The cost must be paid privately
- Missing work or study
- Change in living environment
Free Addiction Treatment Options in Leicestershire
You must stop your or a loved one’s substance abuse immediately. This is the most important thing to remember. Recovery in the community may be more challenging, but it is no less vital. Your GP can provide the details of local groups, of which there are many, who can support you through detox and therapy. You will likely attend a hub where you will have a medical assessment and create a treatment plan with a counsellor.
“You will return regularly to this community rehab for therapy, group meetings and detox prescriptions.”
We suggest enlisting the help of those who care about you. Support at home and in daily life should come from your network of friends and family invested in your new life.The only exception is friends who are also addicted or do not think you should be abstinent.
How long is rehab?
Most people spend at least 28 days in rehab, although in most cases, it is longer. Rehab is divided into the detox phase and the recovery phase.
Detoxification should take between a week and two weeks to completely rid your body of all the chemicals you are addicted to. Two to three weeks of psychological and physical therapy should follow if you want your abstinence to be long term.
