What Is Rehab?
Residential rehabilitation – more commonly known as “rehab” – is the name given to addiction treatment carried out on-site at a dedicated facility (which is also known as a rehab), usually comprising both a detoxification phrase (often medically assisted) and an extended period of therapy. At rehab, patients can benefit from the facility’s attractive and peaceful setting, in which they can focus entirely upon their recovery, far from the temptations of daily life and their usual environment of substance abuse; crucially, rehabs are also confidential facilities, ensuring that patients need not worry that details of their condition may become common knowledge.
It is generally accepted that rehab provides the most effective treatment of addiction in terms of its ability to produce permanent abstinence on behalf of the addict, thanks to its holistic approach addressing both the immediate challenge of physical dependency (via detox) and the longer-term and more pernicious problem of psychological addiction, which needs to be countered by therapy which can reveal its root causes and provide patients with a range of defence mechanisms against relapse. Treatment which only addresses one aspect (typically physical dependency) of addiction is unlikely to result in a permanent recovery.
How can I get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction is a personal catastrophe which ruins lives; it can also be extremely dangerous, with thousands of people dying from substance abuse each year in the UK and countless more falling victim to drug-related accidents and acts of violence. As a result, addiction treatment literally saves lives – and the sooner an addict is able to recognise and admit to their condition, and reach out for help, the sooner that help can be provided within the peaceful, caring setting of a quality rehab.
While NHS addiction treatment services are of high quality, there are very few places compared with the number of addicts currently suffering in this country, and waiting times can be extremely lengthy. If you or someone close to you are in Swadlincote and need help now to combat an addiction, don’t hesitate: every day matters. Reach out now to discuss some of the private options available to you, by calling 0800 024 1455 to speak with an addiction specialist.
The Advantages of Private Rehab
Rehab provides a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting in which an addict can focus fully on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of the outside world and the environment in which they have succumbed to repeated substance abuse and addiction.
Upon entering rehab, an addict will undergo a thorough assessment before embarking on a period of detoxification supervised and assisted by highly experienced medical personnel on hand to assure that detox and withdrawal are as safe and as comfortable as possible. After detox, patients engage in various forms of therapy – both one-to-one and group – aimed at addressing the root causes of their addiction and developing the defence mechanisms necessary to safeguard against relapse; they will also benefit from bespoke dietary and fitness plans and from an array of other resources available on site.
At the end of a stay in any quality rehab, patients will receive free aftercare for up to a year: recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is an ongoing process with numerous pitfalls which rehab can continue to help the recovering addict navigate around.
What Does Rehab Cost Near Swadlincote?

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Swadlincote
If you feel that private rehab is currently not an option for you for reasons of cost, or if you do not feel that you are able to spend the required time away from family and/or work obligations, do not despair: various NHS and charity resources can be found in Swadlincote and across Staffordshire which can help you combat your addiction. Consult your GP about which of these resources may be available to you and would be most appropriate for your specific situation.
Advantages of NHS Treatment
The most obvious advantage of NHS treatment is that it is free at the point of use, while private rehab comes at a cost as noted above (though it is also worth noting that this cost pales into insignificance when set alongside the costs – financial and otherwise – of not getting treatment and continuing to live with a dangerous addiction).
Another positive is that as the NHS operates right across the country is facilities tend to be very geographically accessible, while some rehabs are a long distance from Swadlincote; meanwhile the NHS offers a quality service, though that quality can vary significantly from one trust to another.
Addiction Support Groups
Many people who have never even touched a drink or an addictive drug have heard of some of the organisations is the model can be found across the country providing help to recovering addicts in the form of support groups (individual recovering addicts meeting in groups, typically weekly, to provide mutual support). The most famous of these, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) was founded in 1935 and operates a 12-step programme which is the model for a number of other organisations active in this area.
One of these, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), is the second-largest support group organisation worldwide and, as the name suggests, provides help to recovering drug addicts specifically. Similar organisations with even more targeted foci include are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. Organisations such as Al-Anon and Nar-Anon provide help for the families and friends of addicts and often hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.
Attendance is almost always free, with the only qualification for attendance being a commitment to abstinence. Support groups typically meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change.

Types of Counselling
Many recovering addicts benefit from individual counselling – especially useful for people with very busy schedules – provided by private addiction counsellors who operate very much like “normal” psychotherapists (though with an understandable focus on addiction and its ramifications). This model is often of particular interest to people who have completed a rehab programme and who desire a supplementary aid to their recovery, as well as to those who have not yet engaged in such a programme but who seek a means of managing an addiction prior to doing so at an appropriate time.
Private counsellors can be found across the country, including in Staffordshire, and a broad variety of therapeutic models are delivered. Counsellors are typically seen on an ongoing basis by private appointment – usually weekly – and charge a fee per such appointment. The majority of counsellors limit access to set working hours, though some do make themselves available for emergency access.
