What Is Rehab?
Residential rehabilitation – or “rehab” – is the term for the process by which a person suffering with an addiction gets treatment and it also describes the facility itself. At rehab, a patient is able to undergo detoxification (“detox”) and withdrawal with medical assistance – often in the form of pharmaceutical as well as therapeutic support – and engage in therapy which is aimed at discovering the root causes of their addiction, in a secure, pleasant and confidential environment.
At rehab, patients have 24/7 access to highly qualified and experienced medical professionals, whilst being able to focus solely upon their recovery in an attractive, tranquil environment perfectly conducive to mental and physical healing. Moreover, rehabs are totally confidential institutions, ensuring that patients can relax confident that their condition will not become common knowledge in the outside world.
This combination – delivered in one facility in a peaceful, secure, pleasant and confidential setting – means rehab is widely considered to be the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction in terms of its ability to provide a platform for permanent recovery. Indeed, so successful has the model proven that in mainstream culture “rehab” has become more or less synonymous with addiction treatment.
How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction is an illness that does not discriminate and could devastate the the lives of those affected by it. Luckily, the NHS provides an array of addiction treatment services, including rehab; however, places are extremely limited and waiting times can be lengthy at best. If you or a loved one desperately need the professional help which rehab can provide, you may not wish to waste another second before exploring some of the private options available to you: call 0800 024 1455 now to discuss next steps.
The Advantages of Private Rehab
The private setting of rehab is perfect for individuals who wish to concentrate on their recovery; away from the environment in which they have succumbed to substance abuse and addiction, an addict can take stock of all they have experienced and begin the process of rebuilding.
Once the patient’s system has been cleared of any substances, they will then require therapy. They will usually be given group- or one-to-one therapy, with the aim of uncovering the causes of their addiction and providing them with defence mechanisms to safeguard against relapse. Meanwhile they will benefit from bespoke dietary and fitness plans and from a variety of other resources available at the facility.
What Does Rehab Cost Near Rugby?

As a rough guide, standard costs range from between £5,500 and £11,000 per month, though the cheapest rehab treatment can start from as little as £834 per week. For more details, call 0800 804 4755.
NHS Addiction Treatment Options Near Rugby
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 Rugby and across Warwickshire which can help you combat your addiction. It is advised that you speak to your GP about which of these resources are available to you and would be most appropriate for your specific situation.
Advantages of NHS Treatment
One of the biggest advantages of NHS treatment is, of course, financial. However, although private rehab comes at a cost which some people might find they are not prepared to pay (although, set against the costs – financial and otherwise – of addiction, this investment may be comparatively minor) and NHS options are free at the point of use. They are also very accessible geographically in that the NHS operates in every corner of the country (though waiting times vary and may be substantial). Furthermore, the NHS offers a high standard of service – though quality does vary by location.
Addiction Support Groups
A number of organisations exist across the country to provide assistance to recovering addicts, and some of these operate a support group model. Support groups are groups of individuals who are themselves recovering addicts who come together at regular meetings to give and take mutual support: sharing their stories of addiction, giving advice on how to resist relapse, showing solidarity and sympathy when group members are struggling, and providing the simple companionship which can mean so much in times of difficulty and loneliness. Support group attendees can come from all walks of life, brought together by their shared experience of addiction and recovery; typically, attendance at support groups is free and the only qualification for participation is a commitment to leading a life free of substance abuse.
The most famous support group organisation, and the one on which most others are modelled, is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) which was founded in 1935 and runs on a 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development, with one of the steps being a recognition that a higher power – such as God – can assist with an alcoholic’s recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous (NA), founded in 1953 and based directly upon the AA model, is the second-largest support group organisation worldwide and caters to recovering drug addicts specifically. In a similar vein, but supporting those recovering from addictions to specific substances, are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. There are also support groups such as Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assisting the families and friends of addicts which typically hold meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.
Support groups typically 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 Rugby, see the relevant websites:
Types of Counselling
Counselling is especially beneficial for people in recovery who have extremely busy schedules. Individual counselling can be engaged in either following attendance at rehab or other treatment as a supplementary aid to recovery, or potentially as a means of managing an addiction prior to engagement in a full treatment programme. Private addiction counsellors operate very much like regular psychotherapists, though with an obvious emphasis on tackling the causes and consequences of addiction.
Private counsellors offering a wide variety of different approaches to therapy can be found across the country; they can be seen by private appointment on an ongoing basis – usually weekly – and typically charge a fee per appointment. Some counsellors make themselves available for emergency access while others limit access to working hours.
