Are you concerned about the relationship you have with drugs or alcohol? Do you feel that drugs or alcohol have taken over a significant part of your life and that you’re not in control anymore? Have you recently looked for information on what happens in drug and alcohol rehab? Searching for help and support in Cheshire is the first important step in your drug or alcohol rehabilitation so please spend a couple of minutes to find out more about how drug rehabilitation works.
It is possible to get off alcohol or drugs on your own but it is incredibly difficult, especially if you have been using regularly in larger amounts over an extended period of time. Indeed, there may be a severe medical risk to you if you try to quit completely on your own – please seek medical advice.
Drug and alcohol rehab in the UK is very well-developed and it involves the use of advanced medical and psychological techniques to help a patient overcome their drug or alcohol addiction. Most patients are referred to a local drug and alcohol rehab clinic after an assessment from their GP or other medical profession although they often have to wait a very long time for their turn. Others take the direct approach by searching on Google for “drug and alcohol rehab near me” or a similar term to find local help. Many employers also refer members of their staff as treatment is often covered by private medical insurance.
Our drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre here in Cheshire is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by committed and experienced professionals dedicated to helping patients transition into a brand new life free from the grip of drug or alcohol addiction.

How can I tell if I’m living with a drug or alcohol addiction?
First of all, it’s important to understand that having a drug or alcohol addiction is an illness. It’s not something you’ve consciously done to yourself. It’s not something you deserve. It was the drugs or alcohol that got you addicted and not some personal weakness in you that caused the addiction. The people manufacturing and selling these drugs and alcohol want you to become addicted, for example, most drugs have properties that are chemically formulated to get you hooked.
Drugs and alcohol can have a profound effect on the way your mind and body function. In the past, as your frequency of use increased, taking drugs or alcohol can turn into a compulsion and this compulsion alters the way your mind functions. This change made giving up or even cutting back on drugs or alcohol physically and emotionally painful, sometimes unbearable. And, in order to stop that pain, a patient would need to take alcohol or drugs again to overcome the withdrawal symptoms.
At this point, you’ve become addicted. You get a “high” from your brain as a reward when you take the drugs and punished with painful and dreadful lows when you don’t.
How does drug and alcohol rehab work?
What happens in drug and alcohol rehab programmes? Before you start, you must be absolutely committed within yourself to give up drugs or alcohol. Without that commitment, quitting them for good is almost impossible.
Your treatment with us here in Cheshire will start with a 28-day drug and alcohol rehabilitation stay at our private, well-staffed clinic. You’ll start with a Detox program – this may last up to 2 weeks depending on the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction. During Detox, you abstain entirely from drugs or alcohol because this gives your body the chance to wash out the traces of drugs that remain inside of you.
This is a very difficult part of the process. You’ll be under round-the-clock medical supervision by our Cheshire-based team. To help you, they will offer you prescription drugs to ease the pain and discomfort you’ll be experiencing. The type of drugs we’ll prescribe include Buprenorphine and Naltrexone.
This is just the beginning of your recovery. After this point, going on for as long as you need both as a resident of our Cheshire centre and for after you leave us, our team will provide you with emotional and psychological therapy to change the way you behave. Instead of reaching for drugs or alcohol when a stressful or difficult situation arises, we want to give you brand new and positive ways of reacting to life and the challenges it brings.
How long are drug rehab programs?
As we mentioned above, your drug and alcohol rehab program will start with a 28-day stay at our Cheshire clinic. But how long does drug and alcohol rehab last after you’ve completed your residential stay?
Drug and alcohol addiction therapy is people-centred – every patient receives a tailored of treatments designed to suit them. Everyone is different so the total time it takes you to lose your addiction will be different from other patients.
