If you or a loved one are struggling with an addiction, choosing the right drug and alcohol rehab centre in Liverpool can prove stressful.

We are here to support you every step of the way on your recovery journey and ensure that you get the help you need. We will also support your family and loved ones too.
There are several drug and alcohol detox and rehab clinics in and around the Liverpool area. Each treatment centre and detox facility will offer something slightly different regarding treatment, cost and accommodation.

The good news is you can pick up the phone right now and connect with one of our highly trained and compassionate advisors, who will guide you through the steps to finding the right rehab for you.
Types of addiction treatment help available in Liverpool
Everyone is different and has different treatment needs and preferences. Yet, if you call up any drug or alcohol rehab in the Liverpool area, they will try to convince you that they are the perfect match. This can, at best, be a waste of money and, at worst, make treatment ineffective.
Substance use disorders manifest differently in different people. At the most severe end of the scale is addiction, which is considered a life-threatening disease that requires very targeted and tailored treatment.
Ideally, you or your loved one will only ever want to enter a detox and rehab facility once. You’ll want the treatment to work and enable you to build a sober and happy life. This is why it is so important to access the right fit in terms of addiction treatment.
Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab Liverpool (residential rehab treatment)
Inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is often known as residential rehab and is the most comprehensive addiction treatment you can get.
The fastest way to access inpatient treatment is to self-fund. Self-funding will also provide you with more treatment options. Occasionally, government funding for rehab in Liverpool can be secured through your local drug and alcohol team. However, be warned this is a lengthily and time-consuming process and is not by any means guaranteed.
Residential drug and alcohol treatment with a high CQC rating will provide you with a great foundation for ongoing recovery. You will be required to stay at your chosen rehab for the duration of your treatment programme. Whilst there, you will undergo a full medical detox and bespoke rehabilitation treatment programme.
The benefits of inpatient drug and alcohol rehab:
- Immediate admission, no waiting times
- A safe and secure environment free from substances
- A full medical detox with 24/7 professional care & support
- Access to a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals and therapists
- Treatment is tailored to your individual treatment needs and goals
- Evidence-based treatments combined with the latest in cutting-edge therapies and holistic wellbeing
- Learn effective relapse prevention techniques
- Free 1-year aftercare outpatient treatment programme
What to expect during inpatient rehab
We understand that going into a rehab centre is a big commitment that costs time and expense. Yet the benefits of choosing to go inpatient in a Liverpool rehab centre would surely outweigh any negatives.
There are several drug and alcohol rehabs in and around Liverpool to choose from. Each has its own set of activities and treatments. Accommodation can vary, as can the standard of meals and intensiveness of care.
The easiest and quickest way to ensure you access the right treatment for you is to undergo a comprehensive drug and alcohol assessment with a Detox Plus advisor. We will take down a detailed history of your substance use, medical conditions, mental health and anything else that we feel is relevant to you accessing the best drug and alcohol treatment possible.
A typical day in residential rehab Liverpool
Typically, your day in rehab will start early with any medications and breakfast. Therapies usually begin at 9 am and finish around 4 pm. In the evenings, you will have the chance to unwind, relax, socialise and attend recovery meetings. Residential treatment centres are staffed around the clock, so there is support wherever you need it, even in the middle of the night.
Treatments included with inpatient rehab:
- Individual therapy (one-to-one with a designated counsellor)
- Group therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy – CBT
- Medications for detoxification and any co-occurring illnesses diagnosed
- Access to emergency medical care
- Fitness programme
- Holistic programme
Depending on the rehab you choose, you may also have access to a private gym, trauma therapy, dual diagnosis treatment and a family programme. We can advise you on which rehabs in Liverpool offer more specialist services.
Outpatient drug and alcohol counselling in Liverpool
For some people, outpatient rehab treatment is the preferable option. Typically you would attend a day rehab programme and return home for the evening. However, this comes with risks for a person who suffers from alcoholism or drug addiction. The temptation to drink and use will still be there, as well as stressors associated with your home environment.
If you plan on staying local, inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Liverpool is by far the safest and most effective option. An outpatient programme would require you to already be detoxed from all addictive substances. For some people, it is simply not safe to achieve this without the assistance of medical help and care around the clock.
Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment is most effective for those who have already managed to stop addictive substances, have a good support network and want to work on themselves with the assistance of professionals.
The causes of addiction
Addiction is a complex disorder and can have many different contributing factors. Finding out what caused you to compulsively take substances won’t provide a magic cure. There are many different components to effective drug and alcohol treatment. However, gaining a better understanding of what you suffer from can only be a positive thing and can spur you into working through the underlying causes.
The known contributing factors of addiction:
- Childhood trauma – Trauma sustained whilst the brain is still developing changes how the brain operates and behaves and could make you more vulnerable to addiction
- Genetics – If you have a history of drug addiction, alcohol addiction or mental health illness in your family, this could make you predisposed to addiction
- Environment – The environment in which you were raised can directly impact the coping mechanisms you learned from your main caregivers (1)
- Mental health – Suffering from a mental health disorder can lead to self-medication through substance abuse. This is why diagnosing and treating an underlying mental health condition is a vital component of effective drug addiction treatment.
- Early drug and alcohol use – Research shows that an early introduction to substances can affect how the brain operates (2)
Further to unearthing and healing the root causes of addiction, it is just as important to learn new and healthy ways of managing emotions. Emotions are created by thoughts. Hence, why thought-based therapies and behavioural therapies are so effective in treating someone with an addictive disorder.
