A Guide to Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Enfield
Addiction is taking its toll all over the UK, and Enfield is no exception: its combination of affluence and relative poverty, and its vibrant mix of cultures and ethnicities, make it home to a broad variety of different lifestyles. A similar variety of patterns and substances of abuse, both legal and illegal.
The growing problem of addiction-related destitution and public intoxication is only the most visible symptom of an increasingly challenging addiction issue which causes most damage behind closed doors. However, if you are struggling with an addiction to Enfield it is vital not to lose hope: there is help out there. A number of specialised private rehabs, as well as NHS-covered services, are able to admit clients within 24 hours of initial assessment.

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. It is also known as an inpatient rehab and usually comprises both a detoxification (“detox”) – often medically assisted – and an extended period of therapy.
In 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. These details are only shared with people approved by the client.
Holistic, psychological, and counselling therapy sessions in both individual and group settings help us to counter addictive behaviours and to discover the root causes.
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. This is thanks to its holistic approach addressing both the immediate challenge of physical dependency and the longer-term and more pernicious problem of psychological addiction.
Inpatient rehab 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 terribly destructive illness, and in a tragically high number of cases proves to be fatal. Every day that goes by while you struggle with addiction, could be your last. Fatal overdose is the cause most often encountered when it comes to addiction-related deaths. Others are accidents or acts of violence in which a substance abuse plays a key role. Because of this, it is no exaggeration to say that getting into rehab as soon as possible can genuinely be a matter of life or death.
However, it is vital to recognise that if an addict is unwilling to seek the help of their own volition any attempt to treatment is almost certainly doomed to failure: you need to want to get well to ensure a successful recovery.
Admitting that you need help to fight addiction is often an extremely hard step to take. If you are seeking help for a loved one, who has thus far been unable to make such an admission, we can assist you with planning an intervention.
If it is for yourself that you are seeking help, and you are ready to admit to your condition and do whatever it takes to embark upon recovery, we can give you all the information you need prior to starting treatment.
Either way, once again time is of the essence: do not let addiction do any more damage than it already has. Call a trusted counsellor now, speak with an addiction specialist about what rehab can do for you and your loved ones.
Advantages of Private Rehab
As mentioned earlier, rehab offers a tranquil, attractive, secure and confidential environment in which you can focus wholly upon your recovery far from the distractions and temptations of the outside world and your daily routine of substance abuse.
When you enter rehab, having been assessed by the medical team you will embark on a detox. Medical professionals are there to ensure that the detox and withdrawal process is as safe and as comfortable as it can be; this may involve the use of certain medications.
Apart from a variety of required and optional therapies, your individual treatment plan will also include bespoke dietary and fitness regimes, as well as access to other resources depending on which specific rehab you attend and the level of treatment you have opted for.
It’s vital to remember that recovery is not complete the instant you finish your treatment programme and walk out the door of rehab: it is an ongoing process requiring dedication and diligence. As a result, good private rehabs in the Enfield area will provide free aftercare for up to a year to give you the assurance of ongoing professional support during this next crucial phase of your recovery.
What Does Rehab Cost in Enfield?

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Enfield
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 Enfield and across Greater London which can help you combat your addiction. These include both out- and inpatient options. 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
One obvious advantage of NHS treatment is cost-related: NHS services are free at the point of use. Another benefit is geographical accessibility: the NHS operates throughout the country, while some private rehabs may be a long way away from Enfield. A further advantage is a stable service quality: NHS addiction treatment services are typically very good. However, it should be borne in mind that waiting times can be excessive, going even beyond a month, while private services usually take 24 hours to admit your loved ones into treatment.
Addiction Support Groups
The UK benefits from the activities of numerous support group organisations set up to provide help to recovering addicts. Support groups comprising individuals from all walks of life, brought together by their common experience of addiction and recovery, meet regularly across the country to give and take mutual support in the form of advice, solidarity, sympathy and companionship. Attendance at support groups is almost always free; attendees must commit to a life free of substances of abuse.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is the oldest (founded in 1935) and best-known of these support group organisations; its 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development is the model for many other organisations, including Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which – as its name suggests – caters specifically to those recovering from drug addiction.
Some organisations support people in recovery from addiction to specific substances: these include Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. Meanwhile, Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assist the families and friends of addicts, and typically hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.
Support groups usually meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Enfield see their relevant websites.
Types of Counselling
Individual counselling provided by private addiction counsellors is a form of treatment which is often found especially useful by recovering addicts with very busy schedules. Private addiction counsellors operate similarly to regular psychotherapists: they can be engaged for one-off sessions or on an ongoing basis (typically weekly), usually charging by appointment.
Counsellors offering a broad variety of therapy models and different approaches to treatment can be found across the UK, including a great many in London. Most of these counsellors only operate during listed hours, but some do make themselves available for emergencies, especially those working with your loved ones as part of an aftercare therapy.
This type of counselling is an option for people who have gone through rehab or a similar treatment program, and desire supplementary assistance during their ongoing recovery. On the other hand, it is also the preferred choice for many who have not yet gone through rehab but who intend to do so, and meanwhile desire help in managing addiction ahead of an attempt to overcome it altogether.
