How do I know if I need drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham?

A woman looking nervous

When it comes to drug and alcohol addictions, it’s always difficult to admit that you need help. It’s often difficult to understand and see how severe your addiction might be.

This means that lots of people who suffer from a severe addiction don’t fully acknowledge how severe their addiction issues are.

If you are suffering with an addiction like a heroin addiction or heroin withdrawal, you might also be able to get treatment for other effects like hepatitus.

Addictions happen over a period of time, which is why some people don’t see the change happen clearly.

Addiction will ruin all aspects of your life, but when you are in the midst of addiction it can sometimes be difficult to see it this way.

In fact, the SAMHSA’s 2020 study found that only 1.4% of all individuals in the UK who suffer from addiction issues actually get some form of treatment for their addiction issues [1].

This statistic is extremely worrying, as many people who suffer from addiction issues across Nottingham are able to make a full recovery if they receive the help they need [1].

There are lots of signs and symptoms when it comes to drug and alcohol abuse. Some people exhibit a range of symptoms, whereas others tend to hide them well.

In fact, some people can go their entire life suffering from addiction issues without getting any help.

This is how a lot of people lose their life to addiction, and why a lot of people suffer from long term and life changing effects from their addiction.

Most tell tale signs include struggling at work, arguing more with friends and families, struggling for money and struggling with their health or mental health. Mental health issues might include depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or schizophrenia and anxiety.

You will receive a full psychiatric assessment as you enter rehab by a psychiatrist who can determine if you need any psychiatric treatment.

When it comes to a medical diagnosis, doctors and professionals tend to look out for 11 signs and symptoms which they classify as criteria.

These 11 criteria factors are categorised into four categories, which are listed and explained further below.

Several of the specialists on our team at Treatment 4 Alcoholism are in recovery and are able to provide free guidance and referrals. We’re aware of how challenging it can be to change your relationship with addiction and can offer non-judgemental advice.

1. Physical dependence on the substance

Being physically dependent on the substance is one of the first and biggest signs that someone is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol.

This is because a lot of drugs are physically addictive, meaning that if you abuse them enough your body will become dependent on them in order to survive.

When someone is physically dependent on a substance, they will experience withdrawal symptoms if they don’t consume the drug or substance regularly enough.

This is because the more they consume the more their tolerance increases, and the more their body gets used to and dependent on the substances.

Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, mild or moderate. They usually consist of a range of symptoms including restfulness, tummy aches, diarrhoea, being sick, severe headaches, excessive sweating and struggling to sleep.

2. Risky behaviour

When people are addicted to drugs or alcohol they tend to take more risks. This includes within their drug abuse, but also in other aspects of life, too.

For example, people who abuse drugs and alcohol are often usually more likely to take part in unsafe sex, inject drugs using dirty needles, sleep rough, get themselves into debt or hanging around with people they should not be hanging around with.

3. Social issues

If you abuse drugs and alcohol on a regular basis, then you will likely suffer from social issues.

This usually includes struggling at work or school, struggling to find employment, arguing with loved ones and struggling with your finances.

People who abuse drugs and alcohol tend to also isolate themselves from other people in an attempt to hide their symptoms.

Unfortunately, this only makes their addiction worse over time as they feel like they have no one to turn to.

4. A lack of control

Finally, someone who suffers from addiction issues also suffers from a lack of control.

This includes within their addiction itself and throughout other issues, too. They won’t be able to stop abusing the addictive substances, even if they want to.

For example, they stop being able to control their emotions, thoughts and behaviours.

This leads to a whole host of issues, and can often lead to individuals losing friends, family members, getting into physical altercations and even finding themselves in prison.

As you can see, there are a number of warning signs when it comes to addiction issues.

If you recognise any of these symptoms in yourself or in someone you know and love, get in touch with our team at Rehab 4 Alcoholism.

Several of the specialists on our team at Treatment 4 Alcoholism are in recovery and are able to provide free guidance and referrals. We’re aware of how challenging it can be to change your relationship with addiction and can offer non-judgemental advice.

How to overcome denial

Talking therapy

Denial is a huge reason why people who desperately need help from professionals put off their treatment.

Lots of people suffer from denial throughout many aspects of their life, not just when it comes to addiction issues.

This is because denial is a great defence mechanism which allows individuals the chance to avoid and ignore the problems and issues at heart [2].

If you are currently in denial about your drug and alcohol addiction issues, then know that your denial is holding you back from getting the help you desperately need.

Whilst using denial as a defence mechanism protects you in the short term, your addiction will only be damaging your body and mind in the long term [2].

Hopefully, by attending drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham, you will be given the chance to overcome any signs of denial and work past it.

If you think that you or someone you know is suffering from denial about their drug or alcohol addiction, then you should take a look at the following signs and symptoms [2].

Signs that someone is in denial about their drug and alcohol addiction

A man looking fraught

There are a number of signs that someone is suffering from denial about their drug or alcohol addiction.

Whilst using denial as a coping mechanism might be comforting in the short term, individuals have to move past their denial if they want real help and support with their addiction issues, before it’s too late:

  • The individual doesn’t want to talk about their addiction
  • The individual starts to find ways to justify their actions and behaviours
  • The individual tends to blame other people for their actions or for their misfortune
  • The individual continues to abuse drugs and alcohol and engage in risky behaviour even though they are fully aware of the damage it is doing to their body and mind
  • The individual tends to put off their issues and always promises that they will address their issues in the future
  • The individual avoids even thinking about their addiction issues, and never really puts that much thought into how they will recover or get any better

People who are in denial will also find themselves feeling hopeless at times. Whilst they might not always show it, they are seriously struggling inside.

They might get angry when other people try to help, or suggest or recommend anything to try to help.

They will also tend to brush off anyone’s comments or concerns and will frequently tell people that they are ‘fine’ and to ‘mind their own business.’

Several of the specialists on our team at Treatment 4 Alcoholism are in recovery and are able to provide free guidance and referrals. We’re aware of how challenging it can be to change your relationship with addiction and can offer non-judgemental advice.

Treatment and drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham

Women talking 1-1

If you are suffering from a drug and alcohol addiction and want to overcome your denial and addiction issues, then you will need to attend drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham in order to recover.

During this time, you will undergo a detox. You will then receive therapy sessions, in an attempt to get to the bottom of the causes of your addiction issues.

Therapy at a drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham might include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, acupuncture, art therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, drama therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, group psychotherapy, motivational therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, brief intervention, contingency management, coping mechanisms work therapy, equine therapy, family therapy, group therapy, individual therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, music therapy, art therapy and talking therapies.

Both your detox and therapy are both as equally important as each other and if you are physically addicted to a substance then you will need to undergo both forms of treatment in order to successfully recover.

When it comes to drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham, you have two options.

If you suffer from a severe addiction, then you will likely be placed in an inpatient rehab centre. If your addiction is less severe then you will likely be placed in outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham.

Your detox will last a minimum of 10 days, and can be the hardest part of your treatment. You will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms which can make it extremely hard to stay on track.

This is why lots of people recommend that you withdraw within a rehab facility, so that your withdrawal symptoms can be monitored.

Once this is complete you will then go through therapy, which could last a number of weeks or even sometimes months.

There are lots of types of therapy, including one to one therapy and group therapy. Whilst the idea of attending therapy sessions might feel scary and overwhelming at first, the benefits can be life changing.

The benefits of outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham

Whilst most people who suffer from a severe addiction attend inpatient rehab in order to recover, outpatient rehab treatment might be a great option for lots of people who suffer from mild to moderate addiction issues.

During outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham, you get to remain living in your home for the duration of your treatment.

This means that you will get to sleep and live day to day at home, whilst also being able to attend work and other commitments.

This is the best option for anyone who still looks after kids, or looks after any parents or other dependents.

However, you do have to be available to attend a rehab facility on a frequent basis. This could mean on a daily basis, or a weekly basis.

This very much depends on how severe your addiction is and what type of treatment you need.

The biggest advantage to attending outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham is that you can continue your day to day routine and life whilst getting treatment at the same time.

It is also more long term than inpatient rehab treatment, which allows people the chance to gain more long term recovery treatment, which is a great option for anyone who suffers from a long term addiction issue, who wouldn’t be able to attend inpatient rehab for a whole host of issues.

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.

The challenges of outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham

Whilst outpatient rehab is a great option for lots of people, it can also hold a lot of people back.

For example, during outpatient rehab treatment you will have to recover in the comfort of your own home. This means that you will be surrounded by your family and friends, who might be bad influences on you.

Lots of people recover better in the comfort of a rehab facility as it allows them the chance to get away from their day to day lives and the people in it.

You will also be removed from your home environment which might trigger difficult memories for you.

There are lots of challenges when it comes to outpatient drug and alcohol rehab treatment. However, for many sufferers outpatient rehab treatment is the best option given their circumstances.

Several of the specialists on our team at Treatment 4 Alcoholism are in recovery and are able to provide free guidance and referrals. We’re aware of how challenging it can be to change your relationship with addiction and can offer non-judgemental advice.

How long does drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham last?

Phone calendar

Lots of people get confused about how long they might need to stay in drug and alcohol rehab for, and might start to feel anxious about staying longer than they would want to.

People generally tend to stay a minimum of 10 days in rehab, as it takes at least ten days to successfully detox from most addictive substances.

If you need to attend therapy after your detox, then you will have to stay in inpatient rehab for a number of weeks, which could mean that you stay in rehab for up to a month. This is usually for those with a mild to moderate addiction.

If your addiction is more severe than this, then you might end up staying in rehab for two or even sometimes three months, until you have had time to detox and receive sufficient therapy to overcome your addiction issues.

What are the costs of drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham?

A phone calculator

Whilst lots of people who need rehab receive their treatment via the NHS, thousands of people are forced into paying for private rehab treatment each year.

The cost of private drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham differs depending on where you opt for your treatment. Some programmes are free, whereas others can cost thousands of pounds.

If you need to detox during your treatment, you should expect to pay at least £1,000 – £1,500 for your detox alone.

This usually lasts a minimum of 10 days. Inpatient rehab could cost you anything between £2,000 and £6,000 for an average stay lasting 28 days in total.

The cost differs between these two amounts depending on whether you choose to stay in a private or shared room.

If you stay in inpatient rehab for longer, such as 60 – 90 days then you should expect to pay anything upwards of £12,000.

This is often only for those with really severe addiction issues who need a lot of treatment.

Outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Nottingham is a lot cheaper, costing as little as £5,000 – £10,000 for the duration of your treatment, which could last a number of months.

The costs of outpatient rehab treatment is cheaper as you don’t receive your treatment on site, meaning that the rehab provider does not have to pay for your food and accommodation whilst you recover.
