Inpatient vs Outpatient Rehab

Sometimes it helps when you are protected from yourself. One of the defining characteristics of addiction is that you will continue to use drugs or alcohol even when you know there will be negative consequences. This makes it very difficult to quit when you have the temptation of your usual access to drinking or drugs – as is the case if you are going through an outpatient or community-based treatment programme.

This becomes even more important when you are going through drug or alcohol detox. It’s also worth noting that NHS drug and alcohol services are often stretched and there may be waiting times and a lack of resources available.

With an inpatient rehabilitation programme, you will be in a safe and secure environment with no access to drink or drugs. You will be able to go through a medically assisted detox and will have the opportunity to really focus on getting well, with round the clock support and medical supervision when required.

You can also fit more treatments into the same timeframe at a rehabilitation centre as you will be following a structured timetable and participating in different treatment sessions most days.

 

Getting through the Detoxification Process

Detoxification is the part of the recovery process where you stop drinking or taking drugs and process the chemicals out of your system. The details can vary depending on the substance but the actual time it takes to metabolise these chemicals is usually quite short. The accompanying cravings and withdrawal symptoms can be severe, however.

They can be potentially dangerous and are certainly usually unpleasant, so it is always best to attempt drug or alcohol detox in the safe and supervised setting of a detox clinic if at all possible.

You will be monitored as you undergo the process and maybe given prescription medication where this is appropriate. Other elements of a detoxification programme might include an emphasis on nutrition and sleep.

 

Therapy Options for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

While detox is a vital part of the recovery process it is only that; one part of a holistic and ongoing process. It is not enough to just stop drinking or using drugs – you must also confront the root causes of your addiction and behaviour relating to substance misuse. This is an equally vital part of relapse prevention, which can help you to remain clean and sober once you finish rehab and go back to your everyday life.

You will gain the tools and knowledge you need for this via a range of treatments and therapies. The cornerstone of most programmes is built around talking therapies such as group therapy, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT).

As well as psychological therapies, a number of well-being therapies can also be useful, including music therapies, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, acupuncture and mindfulness. Nutritional workshops can help you to adopt a more healthy lifestyle overall, which can be valuable as you move forward into a drink and drug-free future.

 

Tailored Aftercare Programmes

A good aftercare programme is also important for relapse prevention. Even after undergoing the therapies, it is likely that you will face temptations and stress points moving forward when relapse is a real possibility.

It is obviously better if you do not relapse at all but if you do ‘fall off the wagon’ it’s important to try to see this as a setback and not a complete failure. We offer 12-month aftercare packages that can provide you with the support you need just when you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

What happens during Drug and/or Alcohol Withdrawal?

Prolonged use of many drugs, including alcohol, can lead to a physical dependency. Your body and brain become used to having the chemicals present and when they are taken away you can have a serious reaction. This involves a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, which can vary depending on the substance involved, the length and heaviness of use and other factors. Alcohol withdrawal could lead to severe physical symptoms like tremors or even seizures for example, while cocaine withdrawal symptoms are more psychological in nature.

Does Rehab work?

Rehab is not a magic bullet. There is no easy ‘cure’ for addiction but the combination of addiction treatments and the way they are delivered during drug or alcohol rehab provide the most effective treatment for serious addictions.

Are Addiction Treatments successful?

As with rehab as a whole, addiction treatments rely on a combined approach. Modern drug and alcohol treatment techniques are evidence-based, meaning they have a proven track record of success in treating addiction problems.
