How to Get a Referral for Rehab

Drug and alcohol rehab in Newport offers a professional, confidential, supportive and judgement-free environment for you to start your recovery from addiction.

Before you enter addiction rehab, you will need to reach out for help and get a referral for treatment.

Some drug and alcohol rehab centres accept self-referrals, meaning that you can contact them directly to discuss and begin treatment.

However, other rehab centres will only accept professional referrals, in which case you will need to discuss treatment with your GP, support worker or another professional body to get a referral.

Family and friend referrals are also available at some rehab clinics, meaning that if you have a loved one that you are helping to get treatment then you can make a referral on their behalf.

Following a referral, you will then have an initial assessment to discuss your needs which will help to develop a personalised treatment plan.

Why Have a Drug and Alcohol Detox?

The first stage of drug and alcohol rehab in Newport is to go through a detox.

Detox refers to the process where you first stop taking the addictive substance, and this can be a challenging time particularly in severe addiction.

During this time period, which usually lasts between 7 and 10 days in total, you are likely to go through withdrawal symptoms and experience them at their peak.

This stage is essential in many people’s recovery from addiction, as it ensures that the person’s mind and body are free from the influence of the psychoactive substance and therefore that they can focus on addiction recovery.

Having a dedicated time period set aside for detoxing also helps the body and mind to adjust to living without depending on substances, and helps to keep you safe.

Safety is a key aspect of drug and alcohol detox, as severe withdrawal symptoms can be very dangerous and need to be managed properly.

In cases of moderate to severe alcohol and opioid addiction, planning a safe detox which is overseen by a medical professional is essential.

This is because some withdrawal symptoms can not only be incredibly difficult to deal with, but can also be fatal.

A medical detox can help relieve the withdrawal symptoms for people going through alcohol or drug detox.

During a medical detox, the patient is prescribed medication to help lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms and keep them safe during detox.

For alcohol detox, medications such as Acamprosate and Benzodiazepines (e.g. Librium and Diazepam) can be used to reduce anxiety, curb cravings and control the severity of withdrawal symptoms.

A medical detox can be done at home with the guidance of a medical professional if you have a close support system, or it can be done in a residential rehab.

The withdrawal symptoms of alcohol addiction can include:

After this however, withdrawal symptoms should calm down and you should be able to move onto addiction therapies to form the rest of your treatment.

Overview of Treatment Options at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newport

Group Therapy

After you have gone through detox, you can then move onto having addiction therapies to help you manage the psychological, social and behavioural elements of your addiction.

There are a range of addiction therapies available at drug and alcohol rehab in Newport, including one-to-one sessions and group therapies to provide you with the professional and peer support you need.

Addiction Counselling

Addiction counselling is one of the most commonly used types of drug and alcohol treatment, as it allows you to discuss your addiction openly.

With the support of a counsellor, you will discuss your thoughts and emotions when it comes to your addiction, as well as the potential reasons behind its development and maintenance.

Your counsellor can then work with you to find better coping mechanisms, get additional support for co-occurring disorders, learn key tools and techniques to manage your addiction and much more.

Support groups

Support Groups and Group Therapy

Alongside the one-to-one support you get from addiction counselling, support groups and group therapy are a great way to feel less alone and get advice from others in a similar position to you.

Support groups – such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous and SMART Recovery. – act as more of a space where people who are struggling with addiction can share their experiences, offer one another advice, encourage recovery and gain peer support.

Group therapy is very similar, however it is run by a therapist who will direct the group, offer professional guidance and teach tools to help in recovery.

Support groups can be found around Newport and are often run by local addiction charities or community initiatives. Group therapy can be accessed via NHS or private Drug and alcohol rehab in Newport.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

CBT and DBT are both types of behavioural therapy which can help people struggling with addiction to change their behaviours through awareness of their cognitive and/or emotional processes.

CBT focuses on the cognitive element of behaviour, helping people to analyse their thoughts and positively retrain their thought processes in order to change the resulting behaviour.

This is also useful in other mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

DBT however, also works to change patients behaviour, however it does so through exploring their emotions and practising emotional regulation.

This is useful particularly for those whose actions are often emotionally motivated, and those who have co-occurring disorders such as borderline personality disorder.

Family in field

Family Therapy

Family can be a vital support system for many people struggling with addiction, however unfortunately the nature of addiction often causes family relationships to fracture.

With family therapy, you can reconnect with family members, rebuild relationships and share your experiences to help you and your loved ones understand where each other is coming from.

This can help you both heal from negative past experiences, as well as helping you have a strong support network during your recovery.

There are a whole range of addiction therapies available to help you understand, manage and ultimately recover from your addiction, and you might end up with a treatment plan combining elements of many different treatments.

What Are Co-occurring Disorders and a Dual Diagnosis?

Man exhausted

In drug and alcohol addiction treatment, co-occurring disorders refer to other mental disorders which also exist alongside the substance use disorder(addiction).

Co-occurring disorders affect millions of people around the world.

There are several mental health disorders which often co-occur alongside substance use disorder, such as:

Having two different disorders can be incredibly hard to manage, especially when you are seeking help for one of them. Therefore having a dual diagnosis helps to ensure that both disorders are taken into account when offering addiction treatment.

A dual diagnosis simply refers to the diagnosis of both disorders concurrently, so it is clear that both disorders are present in the person at that time.

This is key as co-occurring disorders often interact with one another in different ways, and it can be hard to tell the extent to which one disorder impacts the other.

However, knowing the symptoms of the other disorder can help provide insight into its effects on the substance use disorder and vice versa.

Women talking 1-1

Ultimately the goal for patients with co-occurring disorders is to have both disorders treated, together and separately, in order to help the person to manage both disorders successfully.

Therefore if you do have any, or think you might have any, co-occurring disorders, raise this with your case worker during your initial assessment.

Depending on whether you have had treatment for it and what the other disorder is, you might be referred for treatment for that disorder also.

However, several of the treatments available for addiction recovery can also be adapted for use in other disorders too such as CBT and family therapy, which can really help to form an integrated, holistic treatment plan.

What Is Residential (Inpatient) Rehab?

Individual therapy

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Newport describes treatment which is given to a patient who is living in the clinic throughout their treatment programme.

This is a common type of treatment programme, particularly for patients with severe addictions, who have additional health issues or who do not have a stable home environment suitable for recovery.

There are limited impatient spaces available to NHS patients, although some are available if needed.

Inpatient treatment is an option that many private patients choose, as it allows for a period of recovery and recuperation to take place away from their usual environment within which they likely engaged in their addictive behaviours.

If you enter into inpatient rehab, then you will stay in the rehab centre overnight for the entire duration of your treatment programme. You will have your own bed and room to stay in, though the room itself may be private or shared with other patients.

What is Non-Residential (Outpatient) Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newport?

Adventure Therapy

Outpatient rehab, on the other hand, is treatment that is carried out when a patient is not living in the rehab centre.

Instead of staying in the clinic, you will instead stay at home and sleep at home overnight, only coming into the rehab to attend your addiction treatment sessions.

There are different levels of non-residential drug and alcohol rehab, from the very intense treatment which involves attending treatment sessions every day, to the less intense where you might attend 1-2 times per week.

The amount of contact time you have at the rehab centre depends on your personal needs and circumstances, and outpatient rehab can be the perfect treatment programme for people who want more independence in their recovery.

Part hospitalisation is also an option for addiction treatment, which involves a combination of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation.

During part hospitalisation, a patient will attend inpatient treatment for some of their treatment programme and outpatient treatment for the rest of the programme.

This is often done with an inpatient detox followed by addiction therapies done on an outpatient basis. This is a good option for those who have other commitments such as family or work, and can be a more affordable option for private patients.

How Long Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newport Last?

A roman numerals clock on a panelled wall

The duration of your drug and alcohol treatment programme will depend on your personal needs as well as how your recovery is progressing.

The recommended minimum amount of time for a course of inpatient treatment is 28 days.

This allows time for the body to adapt to sobriety as well as giving you the opportunity to fully engage with addiction therapies.

This encompasses both the detox and therapy portions of rehab treatment, with aftercare services available for as long as you need them after your treatment programme ends.

Outpatient treatment often lasts around 4-6 weeks, although may last longer depending on the type of outpatient treatment you have.

For example, if you have less intensive outpatient treatment and attend meetings once a week, then you might have a course of treatment that lasts up to 90 days.

If you are on an inpatient course of treatment and require further intensive support after 28 days, then you could remain inpatient for up to 90 days and/or go on to stay at a halfway house or sober living facility which is a safe place for people whose home environment is not stable.

Relapse Prevention and Addiction Aftercare Once Rehab Is Completed

When you complete drug and alcohol rehab in Newport, you will be equipped with the tools you need to continue your recovery independently.

However, that doesn’t mean that you will be left without support in place when and where you need it.

The first thing you will have when you come to the end of your treatment is a relapse prevention plan.

This plan will contain tools, techniques and information to help you battle cravings and temptations, work through your emotions and recognise the signs of relapse before they occur.

By facing the possibility of relapse head on, and informing patients of how to best deal with a relapse when it occurs or when it is in its early stages, relapses can be prevented.

Relapse prevention is a key part of addiction recovery, and every relapse prevention plan is personalised for the patient so you can get support from the tools that you know help you in your own recovery journey.

As well as a relapse prevention plan, when you complete your drug and alcohol rehab in Newport you will also be given access to aftercare services.

Aftercare is just as important as relapse prevention, and serves a similar purpose which is to support you in long term recovery.

Aftercare services are there to help you when you need it, whether you are having a particularly difficult day and want to drop-in for a chat to an addiction specialist, or have been struggling for a while and need extra help to get back on track.

Some of the most commonly used aftercare services include:

You can reach out to the aftercare services yourself, and they are on hand to help you no matter how long it has been following treatment.

Getting help for a drug or alcohol addiction is a difficult thing to do, but once you get on that road to recovery you will see just how important it is.
