Alcohol Rehab in Powys

Alcohol consumption plays a significant role in the social life of many people in Powys, as at moderate levels it helps to relax people and make them feel assured and confident when interacting socially with friends, family members and work colleagues.

However, over time heavy drinkers of alcohol become physically dependent on the substance and psychologically dependent to the positive emotional effects it has on them, making it a dangerous habit that can be difficult to stop.

All recreational drugs change the way we think, feel and behave (including alcohol) and some drugs can give us different perceptual experiences through hallucinations.

Many of the effects generated by drugs can make us feel good and so are very rewarding, which increases the chances that we will want to take the drug again.

In 2019, the Health Minister for Wales acknowledged that there is a significant problem with substance misuse and it has become a major health issue throughout Wales.

Whatever the nature of your substance use, addiction can always emerge and begin to have a devastating impact on your life. Thankfully, there are many rehab centres available to help you overcome this disease.

Am I Addicted?

Two men talking at a table

Many people who go through periods of heavy drinking aren’t necessarily addicted, but perhaps do need to cut down their drinking.

Similarly, drug users who take drugs occasionally aren’t necessarily addicted.

However, drug taking can easily get out of hand very quickly and should be stopped straight away due to the high risk of becoming physically dependent on recreational drugs.

This is because drug use generates many positive feelings for the user (e.g. euphoria and relaxation) which they are unable to give up as it is so rewarding for them.

The following points may indicate if an individual may be approaching dangerous territory and should contact a GP or substance misuse professional to discuss their concerns:

  • Their drug and alcohol consumption has escalated over the last few months.
  • They engage in polysubstance use (consuming more than one substance).
  • A large amount of their time is dedicated to obtaining and using substances and recovering from the effects of using these substances.
  • Their physical health is declining, they may have more colds and infections than they usually do.
  • They are experiencing an increase in anxiety and depressive symptoms.
  • They are ignoring or forgetting to meet work or family commitments.
  • They would like to stop taking substances but have been unsuccessful despite the fact they have attempted to give up several times.
  • They continue to use substances even if it leads to serious consequences (e.g. car accidents).

Physical and psychological dependence

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

Anyone diagnosed with a substance use disorder may have become physically and psychologically dependent on a substance, regardless of whether it is alcohol, a recreational drug or even a prescription drug.

Physical dependence – Tolerance and withdrawal

The first stage of developing an addiction is physical dependence, which occurs when people significantly increase the volume and frequency of their substance use.

A consequence of their increased consumption is that their bodies become more tolerant to that substance.

This means that they need to consume higher amounts of the substance for it to have the same effect on them (e.g. get drunk).

If they then suddenly stop taking the substance or go 1-2 days without consuming it, they will experience several withdrawal symptoms, including headaches, nausea, anxiety and insomnia.

Withdrawal symptoms can vary in intensity depending on how long the individual has been taking substances and how much they regularly consume.

The reason why physical dependence is so problematic is that the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms people experience when they attempt to stop taking substances will disappear immediately when the substance is consumed again.

This strengthens the cycle of physical dependence and makes it difficult for people to stop taking the substance.

Psychological dependence – Emotional reliance on drugs or alcohol

As well as being physically dependent on a substance, people suffering from addiction become emotionally reliant on the substance.

This us because it helps them feel relaxed and calm, or provides them with feelings of pleasure and excitement, or boosts their low mood.

Eventually, people who take substances regularly need to carry on taking drugs and/or alcohol to help them cope with life’s problems and keep themselves in a positive state of mind.

Once a person has been diagnosed with a substance use disorder it is recommended that they seek the help and support of professional rehab services to treat their condition, before their physical and mental health deteriorates further.

Where does drug and alcohol rehab take place?


There are several drug and alcohol rehab services in and near to Powys that can offer residential care for clients who require intensive addiction treatment.

In these residential settings, clients can focus on their recovery in a calm, peaceful, substance-free environment, escaping any negative influences that may be present at home.

Clients will live, eat and sleep on the premises during the whole duration of their stay and follow a carefully designed personal recovery programme.

Benefits of residential drug and alcohol rehab in Powys

There are many benefits for clients seeking residential drug and alcohol rehab in Powys.

These include:

  • There is a stronger chance of recovery for people receiving inpatient treatment as they are in an environment geared towards abstinence and recovery.
  • Private clients can enter rehab almost immediately and start their detox treatment within days.
  • Private clients will be able to benefit from a detailed treatment programme that specifically meets their needs, and have access to expert practitioners who will deliver proven treatment interventions.
  • Residential rehab ensures clients can recover without any negative influences disrupting their progress.
  • Clients will be physically and psychologically monitored and assessed regularly during their time in rehab and support is never too far away should any client suffer moments of personal anxiety and panic.

Outpatient addiction treatment

Clients who have been diagnosed with a mild substance use disorder or have a strong, supportive family and social network around them can join a personalised outpatient programme.

Many people have been able to successfully recover from addiction through outpatient treatment, despite its less intense nature.

On this programme, they can receive home-based detox treatment (if applicable), as well as attend regular therapy sessions whilst remaining living in their own home.

Whatever form of treatment seems right for you, get it from a drug and alcohol rehab in Powys by calling us on 0800 111 4108

Private vs public-funded rehab for substance use


Funding for substance misuse rehab has been cut drastically over the years and any available funding tends to mainly be made available for outpatient treatment.

It is possible to receive funding for residential rehab, but there will be a long delay before any application is approved and there are limited places available.

Sadly, these factors mean that NHS-sponsored recovery is rarely suitable for those suffering from severe addictions, and private rehab can offer a much more effective solution.

Medically assisted detox programmes

As soon as clients are admitted into a drug and alcohol rehab programme, they will be required to undergo the first stage of treatment, which is usually the detox programme relevant to their substance dependence.

Drug and alcohol rehab practitioners in Powys have a vast amount of experience in supporting people through detox treatment for several substances, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin (and other opioid drugs)
  • Ketamine
  • LSD
  • Benzodiazepines

The time spent in detox can vary depending on which substance the individual is addicted to and how severe the addiction is.

Clients admitted to rehab with alcohol and heroin dependence can rest assured that highly trained and experienced medical staff will facilitate the detox procedures for these substances, which can be very challenging and dangerous to withdraw from.

There will be medical experts on hand to provide specifically tailored medications (Librium in the case of alcohol detox), to protect clients from the threat of seizures and other withdrawal symptoms.

There will also be also high-quality emotional support to help clients deal with the strong cravings that are associated with withdrawal.

Psychological therapy programme

Group Therapy

There are a multitude of psychological therapies that our practitioners used to help clients overcome addiction.

These therapies address the psychological distress and to help them understand and work through the emotional reasons for their excessive substance use.

One-to-one addiction counselling – Counselling will help clients find the root causes of their addiction and provide them with the psychological tools to ensure they can cope with stressful situations and difficult relationships better than they have been doing.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – CBT helps clients understand and manage their thought processes, as it is often negative thought patterns and incorrect beliefs that lead to poor mental health and addiction.

CBT helps clients cope with stress and builds their self-esteem so they no longer need to resort to substance misuse to cope with strong feelings and negative experiences.

Individual therapy

Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) – Rehab centres employ DBT therapists to educate clients on several techniques they can use to manage strong negative feelings that can arise in stressful situations and in interactions with challenging people.

Managing these feelings plays a key role in helping clients avoid their regular habit of using substances when they feel stressed and anxious.

Relapse prevention sessions – These utilise the CBT approach to help clients reflect on high-risk situations that may derail their recovery, for example attending social events where drugs and alcohol are usually present.

By recognising their thought patterns and rehearsing strategies to implement when high-risk situations arise, clients can start to resist the strong social influences that are apparent in many everyday situations.

12-step therapy – The 12-step programme was devised by Alcoholics Anonymous and features several reflective, psychological and spiritual challenges that people need to work through to in order to heal psychologically and stop their substance use.

Some of the steps include:

  • Accept their lives are unmanageable and that things have to change.
  • Acknowledge they are powerless over their addictive behaviour.
  • Reflect on their character flaws.
  • Reflect on whom they have harmed as a result of their substance use.
  • Consider their spiritual beliefs and the concept of a higher power as a driving force in overcoming addiction.

How long does rehab take?

For the majority of clients, the rehab treatment process will take around 4-6 weeks, with most clients following a 28-day schedule.

Clients with severe alcohol and heroin addiction may need to stay in a residential setting for 1-2 weeks longer to ensure that their physical dependence is reduced to a level where they can effectively engage with their programme of psychological therapies.

The longer a person stays in rehab the more beneficial it will be for them, and it is known for some people to spend 2 months or even longer in rehab.

Mental health support and assessment

Man exhausted

It is highly probable that clients entering rehab treatment may be suffering from other mental health difficulties as well as excessive substance use.

Addiction can become complicated and challenging to treat if a client has a co-existing mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or post-traumatic stress disorder as well.

To ensure all clients receive a comprehensive and accurate treatment plan that specifically meets their needs, all clients receive a mental health review when entering treatment.

This helps to assess the nature of the mental health condition they have been diagnosed with, or whether they require an assessment for a specific mental health condition.

Understanding how clients’ addictions and mental health conditions affect each other is crucial in helping them to successfully achieve their goal of abstinence.
