Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: A GP is a good place to start. They can discuss your drug abuse problems with you and get you into treatment. They may offer you treatment at the practice or refer you to your local drug service. If you're not comfortable talking to a GP, you can approach your local drug abuse treatment service yourself.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your rehabilitation alcohol program of choice. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Birmingham. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
  4. You may then assigned to a group of other alcoholics etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in West Midlands
  6. You may be given 12 step recovery literature
  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the clients

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in West Midlands have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Does rehab work in West Midlands?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for alcohol/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "98.5% of addicts from Castle Craig stated that they felt safe during their stay in hospital"

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Aftercare: UK Statistics show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence. Recovering alcoholics/addicts who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year.

  2. Safe, Caring Environment: Residential treatment at a private clinic is conducted in a safe environment that is free of the distractions of everyday life. Patients are living in a bubble, they are completely insulated from the outside world. This means that there are fewer distractions or triggers. Addicts can concentrate all of their energies on getting well. They are effectively removed from all of the outside distractions and stressors and 'immersed in recovery'.

"Rehab has supported us all the way. They really listened to us parents and were very sensitive and compassionate in hearing what we had to say. Am sober." Spencer September 2020 Giffard Park

Why rehab might not work:

  • Focus solely on physical coping strategies
  • The rehab program doesn't meet individual needs in Birmingham
  • See addiction myths

What is it like?

There are many different ways to treat addiction, including weekly hour-long group discussion groups and full 12-week programme residential stays.

Usually, clients come to rehab when they have either a) exhausted all other options or b) are conscious that their case is severe enough that they require the full support of a residential programme.

One of the reasons why residential rehab is so much more effective than outpatient treatment alone is that it usually incorporates all of the benefits of outpatient treatment (group therapy, reintegration, a space to share your experience with a supportive community) while it also removes you from the everyday stresses that can often trigger substance use. or other behavioural addiction issues. More.

How else can going to a local rehabilitation alcohol program help with?

  • Somatic Symptom Disorder (SSD) Treatment
  • Selective Mutism Treatment
  • Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD)
  • Bipolar Disorder Treatment
  • Help you come to terms with your own weaknesses or failings
  • Phobias Treatment

Birmingham

A typical day in rehab

Days will differ from rehab to rehab and alcohol/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in West Midlands will follow a similar pattern.

A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with gambling, internet, and sex.

Daytime

Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.

  1. Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
  2. (Break)
  3. Another Group (60 minutes)
  4. (Lunch)
  5. One to one session or Group (60 minutes)
  6. Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture; (60 minutes)
  7. Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
  8. There is often written step or life story work to do

Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA or relevant 12 step programmes.

Diet: A number of rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that alcoholics/addicts would not attend otherwise.

Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.

Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Birmingham as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.

Can I leave: Yes, these are not secure facilities or locked wards.

Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all or within 48 hours.

The best location for treatment

Finding the best rehab programme for drug abuse problems is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?

Every alcoholic/addict is different. However, most psychologists often recommend that removing addicts away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably a good idea.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.

Recommended rehabs. One rehab that ticks all of these boxes is Castle Craig based outside Edinburgh. Only a 4-hour train ride or less from West Midlands.
