Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Luton

If you are suffering from an addiction issue and think that you need to attend drug and alcohol rehab in Luton, then you should speak to a member of the team at Rehab 4 Alcoholism.

Unfortunately, admitting that you have an addiction issue is often the hardest thing to do.

Recognising what an addiction looks like isn’t always easy, as lots of people who suffer from addiction issues also tend to suffer from other issues such as mental health issues like depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or schizophrenia and anxiety.

.That is why if you think that you or someone you know is suffering from addiction issues, then you must take time to learn about the warning signs surrounding addiction.

Understanding that you need help is the first stage of recovering, and most people aren’t able to recover fully until they admit and recognise that they have a problem in the first place.

It is a major misconception that you have to hit ‘rock bottom’ before seeking any form of help. That simply is not the case.

Even if you suffer from a mild addiction, you are able to get professional help.

There are three main severities of addiction, including mild, moderate and severe.

Even if you suffer from a severe addiction, you will still be able to attend professional rehab and make a full recovery [1].

Get alcohol and drug rehab and advice in Luton for addictions including binge drinking, alcohol addiction, benzodiazepine addiction, Buprenorphine addiction, cannabis use disorder, crack cocaine addiction, ketamine addiction, opioid use disorder, heroin addiction, cocaine dependence or cocaine addiction, any physical dependence or codependency, substance use disorder, and behavioural addictions such as gambling addiction and eating disorders.

Signs that someone is suffering from a substance use disorder

There are a total of 11 signs and symptoms that are commonly associated with substance use disorders.

These 11 signs are classified into 4 different categories including physical dependence, risk, social problems and a lack of control.

1. Physical dependence

Being physically dependent on a substance is the most obvious sign and symptom of a substance use disorder.

When someone is physically dependent on a substance, their tolerance will be a lot higher than it should be.

This means that they will be able to consume a lot more of the substance than other people and what they used to.

Another sign that someone is physically addictive to a substance is when they experience withdrawal symptoms when they do not consume the substance for a short period of time.

This means that they will experience a range of different withdrawal symptoms.

Anyone who has experienced withdrawal symptoms before will know just how unpleasant they can be.

In fact, if you suffer from a severe addiction then you could be putting your life at risk from withdrawing suddenly.

2. Risk appetite

When people are addicted to drugs or other substances, they tend to engage in more riskier behaviour.

For example, they will continue to abuse the addictive substance even though they know how dangerous it is and can see the damage it is doing to their life and their body.

They will also take part in more risky behaviour, such as drink or drug driving, unprotected sex or other illegal activities.

3. Social issues

One sign that someone is suffering from a substance use disorder is that you start to struggle socially.

By this we mean that you start to struggle to rub along with friends, with family or even with colleagues at work. This could show up in more arguments, losing jobs or friends.

This could be because you start to make bad choices, like turning up to work intoxicated on alcohol or other substances.

You will also stop to take part in any meaningful relationships or activities that you used to hold close and enjoy.

For example, you might stop a certain hobby that you used to love, or stop seeing your best friends.

You will usually find yourself spending a lot more time on your own, mainly so that you can hide your symptoms more successfully but also so that you can use more often in the comfort of your own home, without other people seeing.

It is also important to note that a lot of these signs and symptoms are signs of depression, which can go hand in hand with suffering from a substance use disorder.

4. A lack of control

The last sign and symptom that people should look out for is losing control. For example, when someone suffers from an addiction issue they will find themselves being unable to stop using the addictive substance.

However, they also lose control in a number of other ways, too.

For example, they will also start to lose control of their emotions, and will find themselves feeling more angry and frustrated with situations and other people.

They will also start to lose control of their finances and relationships, which can often be the downfall for many people.

They also start to lose control of time, as they start to spend the majority of time finding their next fix, worrying about how they will get their next fix and looking for a way of getting their hands on the substance.

There are a few different levels of severity when it comes to addiction. Your addiction can either be mild, moderate or severe.

If you have met one or two of the above criteria and symptoms, then you might be suffering from a mild addiction issue.

If you find yourself suffering from a number of these symptoms (at least 6) then there is a chance that you might be suffering from a mild to moderate substance use disorder that will require professional help to treat.

If you suffer from the majority of the above signs and symptoms, then you might be suffering from a severe addiction issue.

This means that you need to get help for your addiction issue quickly, so that you can get the help you need without putting your life at risk anymore than you already have.

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we offer free, confidential advice from a team of professionals who are in recovery.

What is the cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Luton?

A phone calculator

Drug and alcohol rehab in Luton can cost a significant amount of money if you do opt to go private.

The cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Luton varies significantly depending on a few different things. For example, the longer you stay the more expensive your stint in rehab will be.

In addition to this, you will get the chance to opt for a private or shared room for the duration of your treatment, which changes the cost of your stint in rehab significantly.

Obviously, opting for inpatient or outpatient rehab also dramatically changes how expensive your stint in rehab is.

This is only natural, as staying in inpatient rehab involves a lot more cost such as paying for your bed and your food and drink.

Staying in a rehab centre for just 10 days could cost you anything between £3,000 and £6,000.

This is for staying in a private room, whereas staying in a private room could cost you anything between £2,000 and £4,000.

Most people end up staying in rehab for longer than 10 days, as they usually need longer to fully recover from an addiction issue.

In fact, most people end up staying in drug and alcohol rehab in Luton for longer than just 10 days, and end up staying 28 days.

As stated previously, the longer you stay in drug and alcohol rehab in Luton the more expensive it will be.

In fact, staying in rehab for 28 days in a private room could end up costing you up to £12,000 for a private room.

A shared room is always going to be cheaper, but could still set you back £6,000 for a shared room over 28 days in an inpatient facility.

If you opt for inpatient drug and alcohol rehab treatment, then you will be paying a lot less money for your treatment, as you won’t need the rehab facility to cover the costs of your food and drink.

You will however stay in outpatient rehab for longer, with some patients remaining in outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Luton for up to 4 – 6 months, depending on the severity of their addiction and mental health issues.

As you can clearly see, the cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Luton varies dramatically.

However, most people who suffer from substance use disorders simply cannot spend a few thousand pounds on their treatment, although they might desperately wish that they could.

This is a huge barrier to many people getting the type of treatment they need.

Unfortunately, as a lot of people cannot afford their treatment, their addiction issues only get worse, and they never get the help that they need.

Is drug and alcohol rehab in Luton covered by health insurance?

As you can read above, the cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Luton can be incredibly expensive. This is why a lot of health insurance companies tend to cover and offer drug and alcohol rehab treatment as part of their plans.

Whilst not everyone health insurance provider covers rehab treatment, there are a few that do.

For example, Aviva, AXA and Bupa all cover the cost of an individual’s rehab treatment should they need to.

However, it is important to check with your current health insurance provider to see that they do cover substance use disorder treatment, and what exactly is covered and what is not covered.

If you are unsure whether your current health insurance provider covers rehab treatment, then the best thing that you can do is call their customer service number and ask what is included in your cover and what is not covered.

If you do end up calling your health insurance provider to ask about rehab treatment, then make sure to ask about how many days are covered in your treatment, whether any medications are excluded and whether or not you are covered for both inpatient or outpatient rehab treatment.

How long does drug and alcohol rehab in Luton last?

Phone calendar

Lots of people who suffer from substance use disorders end up putting off their treatment because they are worried about having to stay in drug and alcohol rehab for longer than they might want to.

However, no rehab centre can force you to stay in rehab for longer than you want to.

Attending drug and alcohol rehab is entirely your decision, and you will never be forced to attend in the first place to stay longer than you want to.

How long you have to stay in rehab depends on a number of different things, including how severe your addiction is.

Lots of people who suffer from mental health issues also tend to stay in rehab for longer than someone without those struggles.

You will get a psychiatric assessment from a psychiatrist who will decide if you need any psychiatric treatment or not.

Most people who suffer from a mild addiction stay in rehab for a few weeks, with a minimum of 10 days.

Those with a moderate addiction tend to stay in rehab for a minimum of 28 days, and those with a severe addiction stay in rehab for up to 90 days, depending on how they progress throughout their treatment.

Upon admission to your chosen rehab centre in Luton, you will discuss how long you have to stay in rehab with your admissions team.

You will be recommended a length of time, and will be expected to see through that commitment and treatment course.

What is a medical detox?

If you are considering drug and alcohol rehab in Luton then you need to understand what a medical detox is.

A medical detox needs to happen when someone is physically addicted to a certain substance.

During your detox, you will withdraw from taking the addictive substance, meaning that you will experience withdrawal symptoms.

This could last up to 10 days, and will be incredibly challenging.

Once you have overcome your withdrawal, your body will no longer be reliant and dependent on the addictive substance(s) [2].

Alcohol dependence can be confirmed fast and efficiently using the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, DSM-5 or CAGE questionnaire.

Dependent drinkers will have built up a strong tolerance to alcohol, and experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms (, alcohol withdrawal symptoms) or alcohol withdrawal syndrome when they stop drinking, so these symptoms need to be managed carefully.

To ensure that the risk of seizures is curtailed our medical team prescribe patients with Chlordiazepoxide, brand name Librium, as they undergo detox as this has been shown to offer more protection against the risk of seizures.

A medically-assisted detox (alcohol detox) is needed in order to try to prevent the effects of alcohol, including encephalopathy (Wernicke encephalopathy) and delirium tremens.
