Suffering from an addiction can be an extremely stressful, worrying and anxious time.
Often, people suffering from an addiction feel isolated and lonely.
However, the reality is that hundreds of people are suffering from an addiction in your area.
In 2018, Barnsley had a total of 187 people per 100,000 admitted to hospital due to a drug related issue.
This is unfortunately higher than the national average, which sits at approximately 157 per 100,000 people.
This represents a total of 435 people who were admitted into hospital with a drug related issue in just one year in Barnsley.
Of these admissions, 22% were parents who lived with their children, and 40% were parents who were not currently living with their children, whilst 38% were not parents.
When it comes to alcohol addiction in Barnsley, there are a total of 739 adults with an addiction to alcohol who currently live in Barnsley, under the same roof as their children.
Of these individuals, 506 were men and 233 were women.
Studies found that 43% of sufferers in Barnsley suffered from a mild alcohol addiction, whilst 9% suffered from a moderate alcohol addiction and 11% had a severe alcohol addiction.
When it comes to age breakdowns for those with an alcohol addiction in Barnsley, those aged between 35 – 44 years old had the highest rates of alcohol abuse, closely followed by those aged between 25 and 34, which is generally quite young compared to the national average.
Studies looking into drug specific addictions showed that non-opiate drugs were most commonly abused in Barnsley, closely followed by non-opiate drugs and alcohol.
When it comes to treatment for alcohol and drug addiction in Barnsley, it is those with children who are able to recover most successfully.
Most people have heard of an alcohol addiction.
However, not everyone will fully understand what it truly, actually means to be addicted to alcohol.
Someone is addicted to alcohol when they are unable to control their consumption and use, despite knowing just how much damage it is doing to their health and life in general.
The DSM-5 (Diagnostic Statistical Manual) highlights the 11 diagnostic criteria used to diagnose people with an addiction to alcohol.
This list of diagnostic criteria can also be used to identify any warning signs or symptoms in people who you think might be addicted to alcohol.
These signs and symptoms are listed below, and individuals must meet a minimum of two of the following diagnostic criteria in order to be officially diagnosed with an AUD.
There are also different severities of alcohol addiction.
The DSM-5 distinguishes three separate severity levels of drug addiction.
These levels are classed as the following.
If you show 2 or 3 of the above diagnostic symptoms, then you will be classified as a mild sufferer.
If you suffer from 4 to 5 of your diagnostic symptoms, then you will be classified as having a moderate addiction.
However, if you suffer from 6 or more DSM-5 diagnostic symptoms, then you are said to be suffering from a severe addiction and likely need to attend inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley in order to recover.
If you suffer from just one of the above diagnostic criteria, then you are likely not suffering from an addiction – instead, you simply have a drinking problem.
Rehab stands for rehabilitation.
A rehab centre is where you go when you want to recover from an illness or disease, which could include a physical or a mental disease.
During a stay in a rehab centre, you will be expected to undergo a range of different recovery and treatment options.
This will likely include a detox, alongside a range of different therapy techniques.
There are a few different types of rehab centres, with the most popular two being inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab.
Inpatient rehab is when individuals move into a rehab centre for an extended period of time, where they are expected to eat, sleep and receive their treatment there.
However, outpatient treatment allows individuals to remain at home during the duration of their treatment.
They will be sent any medication in the post and will receive phone calls from therapists and doctors, to ensure that you are on track and recovering well.
An intervention is used when an individual wants to bring about a desired change in regards to a certain mindset or behaviour.
When it comes to addiction, interventions are used to help individuals to understand the problem at hand and seek treatment.
An intervention is simply a conversation between you and the individual who needs help.
During this conversation, you should aim to motivate the individual to seek help and treatment, whilst discussing your concerns over their addiction.
When holding an intervention, you should aim to invite only those who the individual trusts.
Ideally, this will be someone who does not abuse drugs or alcohol, or who the individual has spoken to at lengths previously about their addiction.
You should also make sure you are having the conversation in a quiet, calm and relaxing environment.
It’s incredibly easy for the individual to feel attacked or judged during the intervention, so it is important to hold the intervention in a private space where the individual won’t feel embarrassed.
During the intervention, you should ensure that you lay out all of the appropriate and realistic treatment options available to them.
For this reason, it is highly important that you do as much research as possible into addiction and treatment options.
If you are struggling with knowing what to say and what to do, then you could always ask an intervention specialist to attend the intervention with you.
They will advise you on what to say, where to hold the intervention and will even attend the intervention to make sure that things stay on track and as productive as possible.
If you want to learn how to communicate with your loved one better, then you should research CRAFT.
CRAFT stands for Community Reinforcement and Family Training, and helps loved ones to use better communication techniques and skills to help their loved one to recover and get the help that they need.
Unfortunately, if you need to pay for your rehab treatment, then you will have to pay a few thousand pounds.
Whilst NHS funded rehab treatment is able to fund some rehab stays, due to a lack of funding, they are unfortunately not able to treat everyone.
If this is the case, then you will have to pay for your own rehab treatment, which can cost up to thousands of pounds.
However, how much your rehab treatment costs will depend on a number of different factors.
These factors include:
For example, if you stay in rehab for 10 days in a private room, then this will set you back approximately £3,000 – £6,000.
However, if you choose to stay in a shared room over 10 days then you will only have to pay approximately £2,000 – £4,000.
However, most people do stay in rehab for a longer period of time.
For example, most people stay in rehab for 28 days, which can cost significantly more money.
For example, a 28 day stay in a private room costs anywhere between £8,000 – £12,000.
However, a shared room is considerably cheaper over 28 days, costing approximately £6,000.
Unfortunately, these costs are simply too high for the majority of people who suffer from an addiction.
Those who suffer from an addiction also often suffer from employment issues due to their addiction.
As a result of this, most people cannot afford private rehab, and therefore rely on the NHS to fund their treatment for them.
However, if your addiction is only mild, then you might qualify for a home detox.
A home detox involves recovering and detoxing at home, which requires a lot of motivation.
This costs as little as £1,500 but is not suitable for anyone with a severe or even moderate drug addiction.
As discussed above, the NHS is able to fund some rehab treatment in the UK.
However, due to a lack of funding within the NHS, they are not able to offer this to many people.
Instead of having their own rehab centres, the NHS are only able to fund and place individuals in a private rehab centre, under an NHS funded bed.
In order to gain access to this treatment, you will need to qualify for it.
Unfortunately, only those with a severe drug and alcohol addiction will qualify for NHS funded rehab treatment.
If you are struggling with a drug and alcohol addiction and require drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley, then you should speak to your local GP, your local drug and alcohol team, or to a member of the Rehab 4 Alcoholism team for advice and support on how to gain access to treatment.
If you are considering attending drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley, then it is only normal to feel anxious about a number of things.
A lot of people avoid attending drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley because they are worried about how long they will have to stay there for.
Whilst it is only normal to feel anxious about this, it is important to understand that the length of your stay will be agreed upon before you are admitted.
How long you are required to stay in rehab will depend on a number of different factors.
Some of these factors include:
If your addiction is mild, and you will only require a detox, then you might only be required to stay in rehab for approximately 10 days, as this is how long it takes to successfully withdraw and detox from most substances.
However, if your addiction is more moderate to severe, then you will be required to stay in rehab for longer.
Most people stay in rehab for approximately 28 days.
If you suffer from a dual diagnosis, other complications or a more severe addiction, then you will be required to stay in rehab for significantly longer, usually anywhere between 60 – 90 days.
Even if you do qualify for NHS funded rehab, then you will only simply be placed in a private rehab centre, under an NHS funded bed.
This is because the NHS are unable to pay for their own rehab centres, so have to use the services of private rehab centres.
If you are considering attending rehab, then you should carefully weigh up the pros and cons for both NHS funded drug rehab treatment and private drug treatment.
NHS funded rehab is great if you are unable to afford and pay for private rehab treatment.
This is because the NHS will pay for your treatment, meaning that you do not need to pay a penny towards your own treatment.
However, NHS funded rehab is extremely limited, and only those with the most severe addiction will qualify for NHS funded rehab.
In addition to this, you will have to endure long waiting lists before you are able to undergo your treatment.
If you are considering attending private rehab treatment, then you will be seen and admitted into treatment almost immediately.
This is a fantastic option for anyone with a severe drug addiction who needs help quickly.
You will also be treated by the very best doctors in your local area.
However, as previously discussed, private rehab is incredibly expensive, and is therefore exclusive to just a few people who can afford it.
If you are considering attending drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley, then you should understand the difference between inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol treatment.
Whilst both having their positives and negatives, which type of treatment you will receive will depend on how severe your addiction is, and how motivated you are to recover.
It will also depend on what your home life is like, and how much support you receive from loved ones or friends.
If you attend outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley, then you will remain living at home for the duration of your addiction treatment, and will visit rehab centres on a daily or weekly basis in order to receive any medication or therapy you might need.
Whilst outpatient addiction treatment is not suited to everyone, it is ideal for anyone who has children, still has a job or has other commitments, such as an elderly family member or friend to look after.
However, some people are simply not motivated enough to remain at home and not give into temptations.
If this is you, or if you suffer from a more severe addiction, then you might be recommended for inpatient rehab addiction treatment.
This will involve moving into an inpatient rehab treatment for a number of weeks or even sometimes months.
During this time, you will receive all of your treatment and will not return back home until you have fully recovered.
If you want to attend drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley but are unsure as to whether you are better suited to inpatient or outpatient drug rehab treatment, then speak to a member of the Rehab 4 Alcoholism team for help and advice.
If you suffer from an addiction to alcohol in Barnsley, then you will most likely need to attend drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley in order to recover.
Unfortunately, alcohol is a substance that is both mentally and physically addictive.
As a result of this, alcohol requires a complete detox and withdrawal in order to recover from it.
A detox is when individuals suffering form an addiction withdraw completely, so that they give their body and mind a chance to overcome their physiological need and craving for the substance.
Unfortunately, before your body reaches this stage of independence, it will experience a series of withdrawal symptoms.
These symptoms can be particularly unpleasant and challenging, and can last up to a week.
When you attend drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley for an addiction to alcohol, you will start your detox over immediately.
Most detoxes are completed over a week, and the withdrawal process is as gradual as possible.
Once this detox is complete, you will then remain within the rehab facility to undergo your treatment for the mental and psychological side of your addiction, which will require therapy sessions with professionals based within the rehab centre.

However, it is important to understand that cocaine is not physically addictive, which means that you will not need to undergo a physical detox in order to recover, as you would with an addiction to alcohol.

A dual diagnosis is when someone suffers from an addiction and a mental health issue at the same time.
Unfortunately, this is very common.
Often, a lot of people who suffer from an addiction subsequently experience mental health issues as a result of their substance use addiction.
On the other hand, a lot of people who suffer from mental health issues go on to abuse drugs and alcohol in an attempt to get away from the side effects of their mental health issues.
If you do suffer from a dual diagnosis in Barnsley, then it is important that you attend drug and alcohol rehab in Barnsley in order to recover.
A dual diagnosis adds an added complex to your addiction and treatment, meaning that you will most likely need to be treated at an inpatient drug rehab centre.

Luckily, there are a whole range of aftercare and support services in Barnsley.
Once you leave rehab, it is important to understand that the hard work is not over quite yet.
