All treatment providers we recommend are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or Care Inspectorate.
The UK is dealing with rapidly rising addiction rates and sadly North Yorkshire is no exception.
Easy access to drugs and alcohol has helped his happen, alongside the prevalent economic and employment uncertainty that so many have faced in recent years.
This high rate of use also comes with a greater risk of hospitalisation and potentially even death.
Whilst substance abuse has grown worse across the county, rehabilitation practises have also grown to match them.
Like many areas of the UK, North Yorkshire has seen a huge upsurge in substance abuse.
According to records published by the Office for National Statistics, the North Yorkshire area has seen a high increase in the number of drug-related deaths since 2019.
Alcohol abuse has also been classified as a ‘major problem’, especially in York, where around 400 residents require treatment each month at any one time.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we want people to be aware of their choices for addiction treatment.
You don’t have to suffer in silence, we can help.

The disease model of addiction is a widely followed approach in the treatment of substance use disorder.
This model further suggests that addiction is a disease that requires constant monitoring, similarly to other medical conditions such as asthma and diabetes.
The disease model of addiction dismisses claims that addiction is a choice.
The earlier an individual is exposed to substances (including alcohol), the higher their chances of developing a dependence to drugs and alcohol in the future.
Followers of the disease model suggest that residential treatment is the most effective way of treating substance use disorder as it can be continuously monitored by professionals over a month or longer.
Some addiction experts argue that addiction should not be categorised as a disease and doing so further perpetuates negative stereotypes.
They also believe that referring to substance users as addicts can cause individuals to not seek treatment.
Many people who abuse drugs and alcohol also struggle with mental health disorders.
Professionally, this is known as a dual diagnosis.
Receiving a dual diagnosis can be difficult to hear.
However, it ensures you can receive specialised treatment to help you overcome your substance use disorder and manage your mental health problems.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we work with expert dual diagnosis treatment providers across the UK and abroad.
It is estimated that around 50% of people with a diagnosed mental health problem struggle with substance use disorders.
Accessing treatment can be challenging, especially if your therapist is unfamiliar with dual diagnosis treatment.
By seeking treatment through our services, we can ensure you receive a tailored treatment programme that suits your needs.
Attending rehab can help you on your path to overcoming the physical and psychological side of addiction.
Attempting to ignore your mental health problems or substance use problems will not make them go away, but cause the adverse effect placing your health in danger.
If you are ready to begin your journey, contact our team today to get started.
When someone abstains from substance use, they halt all consumption of drugs or alcohol.
This approach is widely encouraged in rehab and is the goal for many clients.
Abstinence is beneficial for a variety of reasons, including helping individuals steer clear from legal trouble if they are addicted to illicit substances.
It also allows them to heal their physical and mental health and is effective at remaining motivated in their recovery efforts.
The abstinence approach was first developed by Alcoholics Anonymous and since then has been widely incorporated into many addiction treatment programmes.
Whilst other organisations focus on harm reduction, this is not a permanent solution and can easily slip into full relapse.
However, sudden abstinence can be dangerous in certain cases.
Suddenly withdrawing from alcohol can cause the body to experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms such as:
For information on support on how to approach abstinence, contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism today.
Residential rehab programmes can be very beneficial for several reasons including:
Free treatment refers to council-funded NHS programmes.
Whilst these programmes seem promising due to their lack of cost, they don’t accommodate all patients.
NHS programmes are mainly offered on an outpatient basis, meaning they require you to live at home during your time in treatment.
For those with severe substance use disorders, this can be very dangerous.
These programmes also fail to consider dual diagnoses, meaning mental health support is very limited.
Due to recent government funding cuts, many patients are placed on long waitlists which can be detrimental to their health.
For these reasons, we advocate for individuals to seek private treatment if they are wanting immediate care and support for both their physical and mental health.
Whilst NHS treatment is free, private treatment is not.
However, private rehab has recently become more inclusive and accessible due to the acceptance of payment plans and medical insurance.
Acknowledging your substance use problem is a big step.
From here, you may be wondering what form of treatment is best suited to you.
Take a look at the list below, do any of these scenarios seem familiar to you?
If so, you would most likely benefit from a structured residential programme provided by a local rehabilitation facility in North Yorkshire.
DSM-5 stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
It was originally developed by psychiatrists in the United States and has since been widely adopted in addiction treatment in the UK.
It is used to diagnose substance use disorders.
DSM-5 follows a set of 11 criteria with which patients must fully, or at least party, identify with to receive a diagnosis.
The criteria are:
The DSM-5 further categorises patients into 3 levels of severity.
Those who identify with 2 to 3 of the above criteria are said to show signs of a potentially mild substance use disorder, those who identify with 4 to 5 criteria show signs of a moderate substance use disorder, and those who identify with 6 or more signs show a severe substance use disorder.
In instances where an individual identifies with 6 or more of the criteria, an immediate admission to a local residential facility will be advised.
However, at Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we understand that residential treatment isn’t always an option, so we want to ensure you are familiar with other routes.
Both of these involve remaining at home and visiting a selected clinic for therapy or progress sessions.
Whilst they are considered very beneficial to some, you will be assessed for your suitability before the programme begins.
For those with severe substance use disorders, outpatient treatment can be challenging when triggers and cravings are high.
During a home detox for alcohol addiction, Librium is sent to your home to help control alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Within this programme, you are expected to maintain daily contact with your clinic so that they can monitor your safety and progress.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are both free treatment options available widely in the North Yorkshire area.
They take place through weekly meetings and allow you to connect with local people facing similar situations to yourself.
Al-Anon Family Meetings are also an option to help your family.
They are set up to offer support to families affected by alcohol misuse.
Similarly to AA, Al-Anon helps connect you with local people with whom you can share stories and advice.
SMART Recovery is also a free option and takes place via in-person or online meetings.
It is a self-help therapy programme, similar to AA, that aims to provide support to those in the recovery process.
The admissions process begins as soon as you call us on 0800 111 4108.
From here, we can begin your pre-admission assessment, which helps us to understand more about your needs, your budget and your goals for treatment.
With our support, we can help you to decide upon a suitable facility in the North Yorkshire area.
After this, an admission date will be set.
On this date, you will move into your chosen facility and meet your treatment team.
In order for your treatment team to offer a bespoke programme, they will assess you according to multiple criteria such as the DSM-5 (as explained above), the ASAM and the AUDIT.
The ASAM is a multi-dimensional assessment tool used in the placement, discharge, and transfer of patients.
It takes into consideration your needs during treatment, as well as your strengths.
The 6 dimensions are as follows:
The first dimension explores the client’s past and their experiences with substance use. It also includes experiences with withdrawal.
The second dimension explores the client’s health history as well as their current mental and physical condition.
The third dimension explores the client’s thoughts, feelings and mental health.
This fourth dimension determines the client’s readiness and interest in changing behaviours.
The fifth dimension explores the client’s relationship with relapsing and continued use of substances.
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.
AUDIT stands for Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test.
It is a 10-question tool that helps practitioners effectively diagnose alcohol use disorder.
Each question is scored between 0 and 4 with the highest score being 40.
The higher an individual scores on the AUDIT, the higher their alcohol dependence.
The questions of the AUDIT concern your alcohol intake, your overall dependency, as well as your understanding of the consequences of alcohol consumption.
The 10 questions are:
An intervention involves a facilitated attempt to confront an individual about their substance use.
It is typically held by family and friends alongside the help of a professional interventionist.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we can direct you towards intervention services that can offer support to friends and family affected by substance abuse.
By hiring a professional interventionist, you can benefit from an effective situation and a safely managed environment at all times.
Interventions are very beneficial in helping individuals see the extent of their drug or alcohol abuse.
Hearing from family members is often the final push they need to seek treatment.
In cases where your interventionist does not believe a traditional method of confrontation is unlikely to work, they will recommend alternative approaches such as the CRAFT method.
CRAFT stands for Community Reinforcement and Family Training.
The CRAFT method helps families to remain united when experiencing substance abuse issues.
In its simplest form, it encourages families to praise their loved one when they abstain from substance use and avoid enabling their addiction.
This positive reinforcement often proves very effective and helps to rebuild damaged relationships caused by prolonged drug and alcohol use.
For more information on detoxes, call the Rehab 4 Alcoholism team today.
The cost of your addiction treatment programme depends on factors such as:
Below we have listed some examples of the typical costs for treatment:
One of the many benefits of using our service is that we can provide bespoke care at all levels, including helping you source the most suitable treatment clinic.
We understand that choosing a rehab facility can feel daunting, which is why we have created a checklist that we advise clients to take into consideration before settling on a clinic.
A detox is a medically supervised programme in which all toxins from drug and alcohol abuse are removed from the body.
Detoxes are the first step in the rehab process and can help you to overcome physical dependencies safely and carefully.
Staff are also on hand 24 hours a day to help you should any problems arise.
Whilst the detox process can be challenging, prescription medication is available if you require it.
This cannot be provided if you choose to detox without medical guidance.
Going ‘cold turkey’ can place your mental and physical health in extreme danger and is not advised by Rehab 4 Alcoholism.
This is also different from a home detox, where clients are assessed and advised to remain in contact with their clinic.
Whether or not you will be required to complete a detox depends on your substance use disorder.
Drugs such as cocaine and cannabis do not cause physical dependencies therefore a more intense therapeutic programme will be assigned.
However, alcohol use disorder often requires a structured detox programme to allow all physical dependencies to diminish.
If treated incorrectly or attempted without supervision, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can become fatal.
Typically, clients complete a 28-day programme in rehab.
This is considered an appropriate amount of time for old habits and coping mechanisms to be replaced by healthier ones.
However, a huge benefit of opting for private treatment is that you can work with staff to choose the length of your programme.
Some clients choose to stay in rehab for anywhere between 6 months to a year.
Whilst others enter rehab for detox programmes which last only 10 days to 2 weeks.
Whatever your circumstances and situation, we can find a treatment programme best suited to you.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we ensure we work with treatment providers who offer aftercare.
This is an extended form of treatment that helps you to manage your newfound sobriety once your programme ends.
Cocaine is a white powdery substance most commonly consumed via snorting or by rubbing on the gums.
Using cocaine, even a small number of times, can cause a habitual pattern to form.
Regular cocaine abuse can cause devastating effects on your physical health, increasing your likelihood of a heart attack and stroke.
If you have been putting off professional treatment, consider Rehab 4 Alcoholism.

In the UK, heroin is a class A drug.
It is made from morphine and belongs to the opiate category of drugs.
Opiates are most often used for their painkiller properties though they are highly addictive.
The effects of heroin are so strong and euphoric that it causes users to suffer from very strong cravings.
Heroin also has irreversible effects on your physical and mental health, causing:
It is extremely dangerous to mix heroin with alcohol.
Our operators offer judgement-free advice and can help you on your path to sobriety.
With addiction treatment, it is never too late to reach out.
Cannabis is a plant-based substance usually smoked or ingested.
It directly affects the central nervous system and causes intense feelings of relaxation and euphoria.
For these reasons, many people deem cannabis a safe substance to use.
Unfortunately, cannabis misuse is a reality and can cause dangerous effects on the mental health of an individual.
If you become addicted to cannabis, you will often feel strong cravings to use the drug at all times.
For support with entering rehab for cannabis addiction, contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism today.
At rehab, therapy is offered in conjunction with detoxification programmes to help you overcome both physical and psychological dependencies.
The types of therapy you will be offered are usually a combination of both holistic and traditional forms.
When you enter your chosen facility, a more tailored recommendation will be given to you.
Some examples of the types of therapy on offer include:
With the help of a support worker, you will create a relapse prevention plan before you complete treatment.
This plan is a written document detailing your cravings, coping mechanisms, and goals for sobriety.
It is then shared with your support network in the event of a relapse.
It also contains helpful strategies and methods to use such as HALT.
HALT stands for:
It encourages individuals to check in with their basic needs before engaging in addictive behaviour.
As well as your relapse prevention plan, you will also be supported by your clinic with 12 months of aftercare.
Aftercare is an extended form of treatment that helps you to maintain progress.
It takes form of in-person meetings and weekly therapy sessions that require you to visit your chosen clinic.
It is for reasons associated with aftercare that we advise clients to recover locally.
