Rehabs in Gloucester

The UK’s #1 ALCOHOL HELPLINE

Rehab 4 Alcoholism is able to match you to multiple drug and alcohol rehab clinics in Gloucester. We offer a free and comprehensive assessment to ensure your needs are best met throughout the process.

 

According to statistics, alcohol-related deaths in Gloucestershire reached an all-time high during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is estimated that around double the number of people died in 2020 compared to the previous year, with the total deaths rising to 70.

During the pandemic, many council-funded treatment programmes were disrupted leading patients to struggle with pre-existing addictions.

Many people also developed alcohol-related issues due to the stress and strain of the pandemic.

As well as struggling with alcohol abuse issues, Gloucestershire has also faced an increase in drug-related crime, showing the vital need for drug addiction treatment within the community.

If you are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, consider drug and alcohol rehab in Gloucester with Rehab 4 Alcoholism.

We can source immediate and effective treatment for you within days.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

What is the disease model of addiction?

The disease model of addiction is a widely adopted stance that addiction is a chronic brain disease stemming from genetic, neurological, biological, and environmental factors and caused by the user’s lack of control.

Categorising addiction as a disease helps to take the blame away from the individual and instead looks at addiction on a wider scale with clear factors of influence.

The disease model of addiction stresses that if an individual is unable to access the right kind of treatment then they won’t be able to recover in the long-term, with relapse rates estimated at around 40% to 60%.

What is a dual diagnosis?

A dual diagnosis is often given to those who struggle with both a severe substance use disorder and a mental health condition.

Ensuring an individual receives the correct diagnosis means that their disorders can be effectively treated.

Whilst it can sometimes be difficult to receive a dual diagnosis, private rehab facilities offer specialised programmes dedicated to dual diagnoses.

This means that you can treat both your addiction and subsequent mental health conditions.

The most commonly diagnosed co-occurring disorders are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Sometimes a dual diagnosis can be difficult to spot.

However, we work with treatment providers who are experts in their field helping you to secure treatment personalised to your exact needs.

What is the abstinence approach to rehab?

The abstinence approach is widely adopted by treatment providers in the UK and encourages a total cessation of drugs and alcohol.

This helps to avoid relapse and improves the health of an individual.

Whilst some would argue a moderation approach is more beneficial, this can only work in small cases of individuals with alcohol use disorder.

Often, people with addictions struggle with drug and alcohol consumption because they cannot control their moderation.

Continuing to consume illicit drugs, whether moderated or not, can cause a wide range of legal complications hence why rehabs emphasise total abstinence.

Abstinence can be very useful during the detoxification process by which all toxins are removed from the body.

Overcoming all physical dependencies will help you to heal your mind through therapy once the detox is complete.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

What are the benefits of residential rehab in Gloucester?

Residential drug and alcohol rehabs in Gloucester provide many benefits which make it stand out as the preferred treatment for many.

Below we touch upon why this form of treatment is the most effective:

  • Privacy away from triggers and distractions found in the home
  • 24/7 access to medical care and support
  • Single occupancy rooms
  • Tailored nutritional plans
  • Access to luxury amenities such as swimming pools and gyms
  • Support for your mental health
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Experienced staff who are dedicated to your recovery
  • Daily therapy sessions
  • Aftercare

What are the differences between private rehab and NHS rehab?

What seems like the main difference between these two forms of treatment is the cost involved.

NHS treatment is free, whereas private treatment is not.

However, with private treatment, you can access high-quality care and support for your mental health as well as your addiction.

You can also choose to recover in a private, single occupancy room with an additional en-suite.

Sadly, NHS treatment is usually limited to outpatient care and has access to only a small number of residential facilities. With private rehab, the choice is yours.

To access residential rehab on the NHS you have to write to your local council who will then decide upon the outcome of your application.

This decision can take many months which can be dangerous to someone who requires immediate care.

Even if your local council approve the application, the waitlist for NHS care is often over 12 months.

With private treatment there is no waitlist, admission is immediate with places at rehab sourced within a matter of days.

At private rehab, you will also receive a tailored programme designed exclusively around your needs.

This will ensure you can hit your targets and achieve your recovery goals.

If you are ready to begin your recovery journey, contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism today.

Who is residential rehab in Gloucester best suited for?

A woman looking nervous

Often, those with addiction are the last to see the severity of their issue.

This means that whilst you may have acknowledged your issues with drugs and alcohol, you may be unsure if residential rehab is for you.

Take a look at the list below, do you identify with the following questions.

If your answer to the questions is ‘yes’, residential rehab may certainly be in your interest.

  • Do you drink 30 units of alcohol or more in a single day? 30 units of alcohol are equivalent to 1 bottle of vodka or gin, 3 bottles of wine, or 12 pints of regular strength beer.
  • Do you face co-occurring mental health problems as well as issues with drugs or alcohol?
  • Do you feel suicidal or battle suicidal thoughts?
  • When intoxicated, do you begin to lash out at family and friends?
  • Have you been diagnosed with Wernicke’s encephalopathy?
  • Have you been diagnosed with delirium tremens?
  • Do you believe that a home detox would make your condition worse?
  • Are you a high-risk client according to the DSM-5?

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

For more information about rehab in Gloucester, simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

What is the DSM-5?

A man sitting with a female therapist who is holding a clipboard

The DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is the gold-standard text used in the field of psychiatry.

It helps practitioners effectively diagnose mental health conditions including substance use disorder.

The DSM-5 refers to 11 criteria that a patient must identify with in order to receive an accurate diagnosis. The criteria are:

  1. Taking the substance in larger amounts or for longer than you’re meant to.
  2. Wanting to cut down or stop using the substance but not managing to.
  3. Spending a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from use of the substance.
  4. Cravings and urges to use the substance.
  5. Not managing to do what you should at work, home, or school because of substance use.
  6. Continuing to use, even when it causes problems in relationships.
  7. Giving up important social, occupational, or recreational activities because of substance use.
  8. Using substances again and again, even when it puts you in danger.
  9. Continuing to use, even when you know you have a physical or psychological problem that could have been caused or made worse by the substance.
  10. Needing more of the substance to get the effect you want (tolerance).
  11. Development of withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the substance.

If you identify with 2 to 3 of the criteria, you are likely to be diagnosed with a mild substance use disorder (SUD).

If you identify with 4 to 5 of the criteria you are likely to be diagnosed with a moderate substance disorder, and if you identify with 6 or more of the criteria you are likely to be diagnosed with a severe SUD, otherwise referred to as an addiction.

Are there any alternatives to residential rehab?

Whilst we recommend residential rehab to almost all patients, sometimes it isn’t suitable.

This could be because your addiction isn’t severe or because you want to recover through outpatient care.

If residential rehab isn’t a possibility for you, we recommend the following:

Outpatient treatments allows you to live at home whilst receiving addiction treatment. This makes it a more flexible approach though you will have to commute to a chosen clinic for therapy sessions.

  • Home detox

Home detoxes can be a great option for those with mild dependencies as they still includes medical advice and guidance.

These groups are run across the wider Gloucestershire area and are free for all in recovery to attend. They can help you connect with people in your local community who are also in sobriety.

SMART is a self-help therapy programme for those in recovery. The sessions are run online and in-person helping participants to stay motivated and remember their goals for recovery.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

What’s the admissions process for rehab in Gloucester?

People signing paperwork

To begin the admissions process, all we ask is for you to call us. From here we can walk you through your options for rehab.

When you are confident in your choice of clinic, an admission date will be set.

Upon this date, you will move into your chosen rehab facility.

On your admission day, you will likely undergo several assessments so that doctors and medical staff can create a personalised treatment plan for you.

In order to receive a plan tailored to your needs, you will be assessed according to the DSM-5 (as previously mentioned), the ASAM, and the AUDIT.

The ASAM is a widely used set of criteria that help medical providers accurately place, transfer, and discharge patients in treatment. The 6 criteria are:

Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication and Withdrawal Potential

The first dimension explores the client’s past and their experiences with substance use. It also includes experiences with withdrawal.

Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions and Complications

The second dimension explores the client’s health history as well as their current mental and physical condition.

Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioural, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications

The third dimension explores the client’s thoughts, mental health, and emotions they are feeling.

Dimension 4: Readiness to Change

This fourth dimension determines the client’s readiness and interest in changing behaviours.

Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use, or Continued Problem Potential

The fifth dimension explores the client’s relationship with relapsing and continued use of substances.

Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment

The sixth, and final, dimension explores the client’s recovery and living situation.

It also includes exploration of things such as social groups, friends, support networks etc.

The AUDIT is used in the identification of alcohol use disorder and is a 10-question test scored out of 40, with each question individually scored out of 4.

The higher an individual scores on the AUDIT, the more severe their alcohol use disorder is.

A score of 13 or more indicates an urgent need for treatment. The questions of the AUDIT are:

  1. How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?
  2. How many units of alcohol do you drink on a typical day when you are drinking?
  3. How often have you had 6 or more units if female, or 8 or more if male, on a single occasion in the last year?
  4. How often during the last year have you found that you were not able to stop drinking once you had started?
  5. How often during the last year have you failed to do what was normally expected from you because of your drinking?
  6. How often during the last year have you needed an alcoholic drink in the morning to get yourself going after a heavy drinking session?
  7. How often during the last year have you had a feeling of guilt or remorse after drinking?
  8. How often during the last year have you been unable to remember what happened the night before because you had been drinking?
  9. Have you or somebody else been injured as a result of your drinking?
  10. Has a relative or friend, doctor or other health worker been concerned about your drinking or suggested that you cut down?

What is an intervention and when is it needed?

An intervention - people sat in armchairs

An intervention is typically a pre-planned confrontation in which friends and family of someone with a substance use disorder gather to share their concerns.

Interventions can be very effective in helping someone in denial see the severity of their addiction and the effects it has had on their family.

Interventions are most effective when planned with a professional interventionist.

If you are interested in staging an intervention we recommend speaking to our team.

We can place you in contact with interventionists in the Gloucester area.

Sometimes interventionists recommend alternative approaches to traditional interventions such as CRAFT.

This is because not everyone responds positively to confrontation.

CRAFT is a family-based approach that can help your loved one abstain from addictive behaviour through positive reinforcement.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

How much does rehab cost in Gloucester and how long does it last?

A phone calculator

The total cost of rehab usually varies for each patient depending on the type of addiction they are facing and how long they are in treatment for.

Usually, patients opt for a 28 to 30-day stay. This is because a month-long stay has been proven to be effective in overcoming physical and psychological dependencies.

This kind of programme is priced at around £8,000 to £12,000 depending on if you want a private room or en-suite bathroom.

Other patients choose to stay in rehab for 6 months to a year which increases the total cost of rehab.

However, the cost of this type of programme will be arranged between yourself and your treatment provider.

Those who cannot commit to inpatient treatment may choose a 10-day detox. This provides the security and privacy of rehab on a more short-term basis.

10-day detoxes can also be extended to 2 weeks if you need additional support and are usually priced at around £3,000 to £6,000.

Home detoxes, as mentioned above, are the cheapest treatment option and usually begin at around £1,500 though your chosen clinic will have a more accurate price for this kind of programme.

How do I choose the best rehab facility?

Ivy covered houses

Deciding on the right rehab can be difficult. As everyone’s addiction is different, it is important to choose a facility that can tailor your treatment programme entirely to your needs.

To help you in your decision, we have compiled a list of things you should take into consideration:

  • The total length the clinic has been running for
  • Reviews from previous staff and patient
  • How experienced staff are
  • If they offer dual diagnosis treatment
  • If the treatment is within your budget

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

For more information about rehab in Gloucester, simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

What is a detox, and will I need to complete one?

A man reading in bed

A detox is the first step in the addiction treatment process and helps to remove all toxins from the body.

When the body has built up a high tolerance to drugs or alcohol, it requires specialist treatment to help manage withdrawal symptoms.

Attempting to detox at home, without medical assistance or advice, can result in fatal consequences and is not recommended or endorsed by Rehab 4 Alcoholism.

In a rehab facility, withdrawals can be managed safely with the support of a team who operates 24 hours a day.

For those with severe withdrawals, medication can be prescribed to ease the unpleasantness.

Whether or not you will have to complete a detox depends on the type of substance you are addicted to.

Whilst drugs such as heroin and alcohol require a medically supervised detox, cocaine and cannabis do not.

This is because the latter are not physically addictive substances.

Instead, an intensive therapy programme will be prescribed to help heal the psychological side of the addiction.

Cocaine Rehab in Gloucester

Individual therapy

Cocaine is a very addictive substance and you do not have to be using it every day for a dependency to form.

Regular patterns of misuse can cause severe dependencies and have a wide range of negative effects on your physical and mental health.

Regularly referred to as ‘coke’, cocaine is a stimulant drug that appears as a white powder. It is usually snorted though it can also be smoked in crystal form.

Without the correct treatment, cocaine abuse can cause your tolerance to build to a very high level.

If you want to break your dependence, call Rehab 4 Alcoholism today. We can source cocaine rehab in Gloucester best suited to your needs.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

For more information about rehab in Gloucester, simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

Heroin Rehab in Gloucester

Therapy

Heroin is considered one of the most addictive substances in the world and can cause an overdose through one single dosage.

Overcoming a heroin addiction can be difficult, but help is available.

When treating heroin addiction, there are several treatment options.

Whilst detoxing is usually the first step, you can also have the option of using other medications to help ease cravings and withdrawal.

Inpatient treatment is widely recommended when treating heroin addiction due to the nature and intensity of heroin withdrawals.

However, by choosing a rehab clinic suited to your needs, you can benefit from 24/7 care.

Breaking all dependencies and looking forward to life without heroin is possible, call today to begin your recovery journey.

Cannabis Rehab in Gloucester

A group therapy session

Cannabis is often deemed a difficult substance to quit because it is more socially acceptable than other drugs.

If you are worried about your cannabis consumption, we recommend entering a cannabis rehab in Gloucester.

Cannabis rehab mainly works on a therapeutic basis to help you understand the cause of your addiction.

Here you can work on challenging negative thought patterns and addictive behaviours.

Whilst cannabis is often considered harmless, it can cause a wide range of physical and emotional effects on the mind and body.

Call today to overcome your dependence.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free advice from a team of non-judgemental professionals, many of whom are in recovery and understand how hard can be to change your relationship with addiction.

Therapy is a great benefit of rehab in Gloucester, and can help you to come to terms with your substance use disorder and any co-occurring mental health disorders.

By working both independently and in a group setting, you can learn more about yourself and how to avoid engaging in addictive behaviour in the future.

The types of therapy on offer are:

What is a relapse prevention plan?

Writing in a notebook

A relapse prevention plan is a formulated plan to assist you once you have completed treatment and moved back home.

In this plan will be details of your addiction including your triggers and coping mechanisms.

Your relapse prevention plan will be written with the help of a support worker who can also share helpful techniques such as HALT.

HALT stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired and encourages you to ‘halt’ or stop before you engage in addictive behaviour or relapse by checking in with your needs.

Once complete, your relapse prevention plan, with your consent, will be shared with your support network to allow them to continue to offer their help in the event of a relapse.

If a relapse does occur, it is important to remember that support is still available.

Relapses are not a sign of failure and it doesn’t mean that all of your hard work is undone.

Many clinics will re-admit patients who have relapsed immediately, helping you get back on your feet. Aftercare is also offered as part of private rehab and is a huge benefit.

It consists of weekly therapy sessions and drop-in meetings to help you in your first 12 months of sobriety.

If you are currently struggling with drug or alcohol abuse and want to seek professional help, reach out to Rehab 4 Alcoholism today.

We can source swift admission to a drug and alcohol rehab in Gloucester.
