Drug & Alcohol Rehabs in Nuneaton

High levels of substance abuse are becoming a huge concern for local authority healthcare services in the area, as there is a rise in people seeking drug and alcohol rehab treatment in Nuneaton and the surrounding North Warwickshire.

High rates of substance misuse negatively impact the local economy and overstretch local healthcare services.

Research has indicated that 25% of adults in the Warwickshire area regularly consume alcohol at levels above what is considered low risk, with over 5% of the adult population classed as physically dependent on alcohol.

Treatment for excessive drug and alcohol use is a highly specialised area and there are now many private drug and alcohol rehab providers available in Nuneaton to help treat this chronic physical and mental health condition.

Alcoholic addiction is an extremely common mental health disorder due to the powerful effect that alcohol has on our central nervous system, mood and behaviour.

There has been a growing concern about the rising cases of alcohol-related hospital visits in the midlands last 10-15 years.

Most counties throughout the UK are reporting increasing numbers of people in their overall population that require treatment for alcohol misuse.

These figures are a cause for concern as alcohol can affect an individual’s overall health and cause a range of illnesses.

What is residential rehab?

Support groups

Residential rehab for drug and alcohol misuse is also known as inpatient treatment and involves clients entering a treatment programme at a specialist location where they will live, eat and sleep on the premises for the duration of their treatment.

Each client will follow their own personal rehab programme that consists of several daily therapeutic activities and meetings designed to help them achieve and maintain sobriety.

This is in contrast to clients who follow an outpatient programme, who can access detox (if required) and individual and group therapy within a local community setting and still live in their homes.

How long does drug and alcohol rehab last?

How long does rehab last

Most clients who enter a residential rehab programme for excessive drug or alcohol use tend to spend approximately one month in treatment.

The programme is quite intense and contains medical procedures and psychological therapies, as well as a range of therapeutic activities and educational workshops.

Clients with severe substance use disorders can be in residential rehab for 6 weeks or longer, as their detox treatment and subsequent therapies may need more time, and many private clients can opt to spend 2-4 weeks extra in treatment to allow more time for their recovery.

Research indicates that the longer a person spends in rehab, the more beneficial it will be for their well-being.

Advantages of private rehab in a residential setting

  • A healthy staff-to-patient ratio
  • Quick admission onto a treatment program and detox treatment with no delays or administrative obstacles.
  • Private clients can benefit from a greater range of treatment options and a chance to receive specific treatment which has been identified as important for their recovery.

Addiction Treatment Philosophy at Rehabs in Nuneaton

Support network

Our drug and alcohol rehab services in Nuneaton are based on the following treatment principles:

1. The focus is on the individual

All clients are treated individually, rehab centres recognise that every client has a unique personal history and different reasons for engaging in substance use.

By fully understanding all aspects of a client’s life and circumstances we are in a stronger position to devise an appropriate treatment plan to ensure they overcome their substance misuse difficulties.

2. A holistic approach to treatment

Addiction rehab centres believe in a holistic approach to treating substance misuse disorders and will consider factors relating to different dimensions of a client’s substance use.

This includes reviewing their social and cultural environment, and various individual psychological and spiritual factors as well as their physical dependence when devising a treatment plan.

3. Abstinence-based focus

Drug and alcohol rehab services in Nuneaton follow an abstinence-based approach to treatment and therefore guide all clients towards recovery and a life free from substances.

Despite the value of harm reduction approaches, any patient who has become addicted to a psychoactive substance is at risk of triggering a serious relapse if they engage in substance use in the future, albeit only very occasionally.

Diagnosing addiction

Since the introduction of DSM-5 in 2014, medical practitioners use the clinical term Substance Misuse Disorder to diagnose a patient with any form of substance addiction, regardless of which substance they are addicted to.

The condition of alcohol addiction is now known as alcohol use disorder, however there are common patterns of behaviour exhibited by people who become addicted to any substance.

The common signs and symptoms to watch out for the indicate the presence of addiction include:

  • Increasing the amount and frequency of their substance use.
  • Ignoring daily commitments, whether work or family related to focus on substance use.
  • A large proportion of their day/week is spent acquiring and using substances, and then recovering from their physical and psychological effects.
  • They are unable to give up taking substances and may have tried unsuccessfully several times.
  • Evidence of physical dependence, indicated by the presence of tolerance and withdrawal.
  • Continuing to use substances despite the physical and psychological harm it is causing them.
  • Giving up activities and hobbies that were previously enjoyed due to their obsession with substance use.

Addiction treatment plans for addictive disorders

All clients who enter rehab for alcohol and drug addiction in Nuneaton will follow a treatment programme featuring the following components:

1. Pharmacological interventions (commonly known as detox)

All clients receiving treatment for a physical addiction will undergo a detox programme to help eradicate their physical dependence on drugs or alcohol.

Detox treatment involves gradually reducing the toxic chemicals in drugs and alcohol from the patient’s body so that they no longer experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop ingesting substances.

The detox process does differ depending on which substances clients are seeking treatment for, and substances such as cocaine and cannabis do not require a detox.

2. Alcohol detox

Alcohol is a very risky drug to withdraw from suddenly, so constant medical supervision is a necessity for clients recovering from alcohol use disorder.

There is a strong risk of suffering from a seizure for any clients who suddenly stop drinking alcohol after a period of heavy use.

There are specialist addiction professionals working throughout the rehab clinics in Nuneaton who are very experienced in overseeing alcohol withdrawal.

They employ addiction specialists who will be on hand to prescribe medication from the benzodiazepine drug group (such as Librium) to help clients withdraw from alcohol safely.

Alcohol detox procedures generally take 7-10 days to complete.

3. Heroin (opioid Drugs)

Heroin withdrawal produces strong cravings, which is notoriously difficult to resist and many substance users who become addicted to heroin tend to have multiple relapses before they eventually recover successfully.

The drug and alcohol rehab centres we collaborate with in Nuneaton have devised standardised treatments for heroin dependence.

These treatments involve using substitute drugs such as methadone and Buprenorphine to help eliminate the toxic presence of heroin from patients’ bodies over an extended time.

4. Substitute drugs are not addictive

Methadone and Buprenorphine contain chemicals that can prevent withdrawal symptoms, but do not contain any toxic or addictive compounds that can harm the person or make their addiction worse.

It can take 1-3 weeks to physically stabilise a patient who is withdrawing from heroin as all clients differ in their pattern of drug use.

Heavy users of heroin who have been taking the drug for several years will take many months to complete heroin detox.

5. Cocaine and cannabis

Cocaine and cannabis are not considered as harmful or addictive as heroin or alcohol, but they can still cause a great deal of suffering and distress for clients requiring rehab.

There are no pharmacological interventions available for cocaine or cannabis, but experienced medical practitioners will still closely monitor all patients undergoing withdrawal from these drugs.

They will also offer advice and medication to help clients manage any intense physical withdrawal symptoms that may arise.

It is also important to keep observing each client’s mental health status during the detox phase.

This is because some patients withdrawing from cocaine and cannabis are vulnerable to experiencing a significant decline in mood and suffer from severe depressive symptoms which can be damaging if not treated.

Psychological therapies at rehabs in Nuneaton

Group Therapy

Once a client has completed their detox treatment, they begin their programme of therapies to help them work through the emotional and social reasons behind their substance use.

1. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Psychological therapists work on the assumption that our thoughts dictate our emotional life and our subsequent behaviour.

People who have negative thought patterns and inaccurate beliefs are more likely to be psychologically distressed and prone to substance use, particularly if they are using substances to self-medicate difficult feelings.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy  is a major form of therapy that most clients rehab will have as it helps them adjust their irrational thinking patterns and gain control of their minds, freeing them from negative automatic thoughts.

2. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy

DBT helps patients regain more emotional control, as during the 1-1 sessions the therapist will teach clients various strategies to tolerate difficult emotions rather than be overwhelmed or paralysed by them.

Helping people manage difficult feelings is a primary aim of all psychological therapy programmes.

3. Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a form of behaviour change therapy used by therapists when clients appear to be displaying a drop in enthusiasm for their treatment and may be thinking of withdrawing from their recovery programme.

4. Group Therapy

It is extremely beneficial for substance users to talk about their experiences with their peers in recovery who have faced similar challenges in their lives.

The sessions will be facilitated by a professional therapist who will help all group members connect with each other and help them understand more about how their life experiences contributed to their substance use.

5. Peer support groups

These groups include self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous and SMART Recovery.

The founders of Alcoholics Anonymous proposed that the concept of fellowship and mutual support was an invaluable source of support for people looking to achieve recovery from alcoholism.

Since then, all other peer support groups for addiction have adopted these principles and organised support in all regions throughout the UK to help people who have become addicted to substances.

6. Following the 12-step treatment model

Alcoholics Anonymous also developed its own formula for recovery, which is known across the world as Twelve Steps to Recovery, which remains a core component of many addiction treatment programmes.

The 12 steps are a series of carefully devised reflective challenges that clients need to work through to give up their substance use.

7. Holistic therapies

Many drug and alcohol rehab services in Nuneaton now offer a range of holistic therapies to complement the talking therapy element of their treatment programmes.

Some of the most popular holistic therapies offered by established rehab centres include:

8. Dual diagnosis

Drug and alcohol rehab services in Nuneaton recognise that very often clients that have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder have also been diagnosed with another mental health condition.

These can often include:

Some clients may not have received an official diagnosis yet, but are showing symptoms of a mental health condition and therefore require a diagnosis.

The drug and alcohol rehab centres in Nuneaton have established links with mental health services, in the area so they can swiftly arrange a mental health diagnosis for clients if necessary.

9. Relapse Prevention

The relapse prevention element of treatment programmes helps clients understand all of their potential triggers for relapse, which can differ significantly between clients.

These may include being in social situations and events (e.g. weddings) or in the company of a certain group of people (e.g. sports teams) where there may be a strong social pressure to drink alcohol or take drugs.

10. HALT Approach

Psychological therapists use the HALT acronym to guide clients on the situations in which they may be vulnerable to relapsing.

HALT refers to internal body states which have been known to trigger cravings for substances.

HALT is an acronym for:

  • H – Hungry.
  • A – Angry.
  • L – Lonely.
  • T – Tired.

Therapists help clients develop strategies to help them cope when they experience these physiological states.

Adventure Therapy

11. Aftercare programme.

Recovering from addiction is a lifelong challenge.

To continue the good work that clients achieve during their 28-day residential stay, rehab centres work with each client to devise their personal aftercare programme.

This programme will ensure that clients will carry on implementing all the knowledge they have gained and integrate them with the strategies they have learned to help them live a substance-free life.

Aftercare programmes usually ensure clients:

  • Continue attending support groups (e.g. AA).
  • Rehearse and use their relapse prevention knowledge and skills.
  • Become actively involved in the community, which has been identified as a significant factor in achieving recovery.
  • Establish charities and organisations that offer support, training and information that can enhance their well-being, for example, SMART Recovery.
  • Practice self-care to ensure their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are met.
  • Set personal goals to work towards.
