Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Chesterfield

Perhaps you’re at a point where you’ve had enough of the devastating effects of alcohol or drugs. You aren’t alone.

In 2021, “Chesterfield Police […] responded to six overdose deaths within 72 hours”.[1] In 2020, across the whole of Derbyshire, 110 people died due to alcohol.[2]

This will, of course, have seriously impacted everyone connected to these people.

If you’re struggling with addiction, you can enter an alcohol rehab in Chesterfield.

Doing so will mean you access the best treatment options available to begin your journey back to health.

What does it mean to have an alcohol addiction?

Developing an alcohol addiction can go unnoticed for a long period of time. This is largely due to how socially accepted drinking is.

Addiction to alcohol occurs where a person has become too reliant on the substance to function normally.

Without it, you start to experience psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms. This can be both uncomfortable and in the case of alcohol, dangerous.

Alcohol physically changes the structure of the brain and how it works. This is what causes you to keep returning to it even when you don’t want to.

Psychological control has been taken away due to the underlying neurological factors.

At this point, a stay at rehab in Chesterfield offers the best way to begin recovery.

What happens when you’re at rehab…

Going to an alcohol rehab in Chesterfield will be a whole new experience, especially in terms of your addiction treatment.

You’ll be welcomed by friendly staff and shown about. Staff and residents are very approachable and you’ll soon settle in.

On entering, you’ll have a couple of assessments. These are what will guide staff to create a personalised programme for you to follow.

It will include individual and group therapies as well as relaxing and fun activities.

Some people will have a detox period where they safely wean off substances such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, and heroin. This occurs during the first week.

Rehab is a safe environment which is completely substance-free and designed to keep external triggers to a minimum. At a private clinic, the goal is to become sober.

While there, you will achieve this and be given the techniques to remain so upon leaving.

What you can do at home to support your loved one before rehab

Supporting a loved one who has an addiction at home can be very trying. Knowing what to do is even more tricky as you discover the ups-and-downs and difficulties that are introduced to family dynamics.

There are a couple of interventions you can adopt. Firstly, there is the traditional approach.

This is where you’d find a professional in Chesterfield to support you to approach your loved one.

You’d carefully explain your concerns. The professional, perhaps a family doctor, would then explain treatment options.

Another intervention that is becoming increasingly common is the CRAFT approach.

As a family, you’re supported to learn about how addiction works and how to identify where your loved one is in the cycle of change.

From this you learn how to most positively interact with them.

The focus of CRAFT is to create healthy dynamics in the family, to support yourself, and to acknowledge the healthy behaviours of your loved one.

This approach is more subtle, but is very successful in supporting people towards rehabilitation.

The cost of rehab in Chesterfield

To stay at a private drug and alcohol rehab in Chesterfield will cost money.

The overall cost will vary greatly depending on the level of luxury you go for in terms of the establishment, the treatment required, and your length of stay.

As a general guideline, some clinics cost around £495 a day, others £14,000 for a month, and still others come in at around £4000 for a month.

You’ll obviously need to enquire at a few clinics to find out their prices and make a comparison. Rehab 4 Alcoholism can support you in this area.

Will the NHS pay for you to stay at rehab?

In some cases, the NHS will fund your stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Chesterfield.

In order to be able to access this funding, however, you must be able to demonstrate you meet their criteria.

Firstly, you must prove that you’re in regular contact with council-funded services.

A reference from the clinic will support your application and reveal your level of commitment to recovery.

Secondly, you need to apply for the funding to the council. Your case worker at the local drug and alcohol service can help you in this area.

It’s beneficial to keep in mind, though, that you’ll be competing with many other applicants for the funding, so might not be successful in receiving it regardless of how well you have done so far.

Simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

Rehab – the length of your stay

Women talking

When you enter a rehab clinic for alcohol or drug addiction, you’ll stay for a period of time.

While some people might enter for a detox of around 7-10 days, the majority will remain for around 28 days.

28 days is the recommended amount of time. This gives you the space to sink into the experience and treatments fully.

You’ll need the time to learn, practise, and turn new behaviours into healthy habits.

Addictions are often in place for years and to really unpick them, you need to give yourself time.

A detox is important where people have physical dependencies. In some cases it’s literally the difference between life and death.

Although you might feel a detox is all you need, actually it’s the psychological treatments that take place after the detox which will equip you to remain abstinent.

What’s the difference between council-funded rehab services and a private clinic?

Council-funded services are slightly different to an alcohol rehab in Chesterfield.

Firstly, their provision is outpatient only. You’ll be supported by a caseworker to access groups and will receive some one-to-one input.

There will be everyone from teenagers accessing harm reduction advice services to life-long drug users accessing needle exchanges.

While these services are great in serving the whole community, they also tend to be stretched.

A private clinic is geared towards people who have decided to quit alcohol or drugs.

This is a particularly key point in the cycle of change where you want to act and change.

The support offered covers the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of addictions.

There is also a timetable of treatments that you’ll follow throughout each day.

Simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

Inpatient and outpatient rehab services

One of the great things about accessing rehab support in Chesterfield is that you can opt for either inpatient or outpatient services.

As a note, government-funded services are all outpatient, while private offer both options.

Inpatient services are private clinics that you go to stay in to receive an intensive approach to rehabilitation.

You’ll receive specialist support from experts in the field of addiction.

Staff are available 24 hours a day to support you. Every type of treatment available is on offer in some format.

Outpatient services are where you live at home but go to clinic for one-to-one or group sessions.

This approach is more casual and more suited to people with mild substance misuse issues.

Alcohol detox and rehab in Chesterfield


Despite its legal status, alcohol is one of the most dangerous substances available.

It creates both a psychological and physical addiction. The physical dependency is where it can be fatal.

This is why entering alcohol rehab in Chesterfield can make all the difference in your recovery.

Knowing the signs of alcohol withdrawal clarifies whether your addiction is serious enough that you require treatment.

Withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Shaking, usually visible in your fingers
  • Sweating
  • Craving alcohol/feeling you need it to face the day
  • Confusion
  • Sickness
  • Diarrhoea
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

As a resident at an alcohol and drug rehab clinic, you’ll have a tailored treatment plan.

This will be based on the information you have shared which highlights your background, your physical and mental health, as well as social factors.

Staff will offer therapies that pinpoint the under-workings of your cravings and you’ll develop techniques that are healthy to manage these going forward.

You’ll also start to think about life in a new way through developing new interests. This is key in supporting sobriety.

Rehab for cocaine in Chesterfield

Treatment for cocaine addiction is available at a drug and alcohol rehab in Chesterfield.

Many people use cocaine along with other substances, such as alcohol. Or might go on to using crack-cocaine.

Whether using cocaine alone or with other substances, it builds up toxins in the body. These have a seriously detrimental effect on you.

While people often think cocaine is “just a bit of fun”, they soon come to learn at rehab how it increases risks of illnesses and diseases, as well as having seriously negative impact on mental health.

Rehab staff will provide you with the tools to make you feel as though you want to quit for good.

You’ll learn ways to manage cravings and to develop a healthy life with meaning without turning to cocaine.

There will be an emphasis on both individual and group sessions to provide new insights and skills.

Rehab for heroin in Chesterfield

You can enter drug rehab for heroin addiction. You’ll be assessed on entering by a doctor around the physical aspect of the addiction.

This is important as you’ll be given a prescription to manage the withdrawal effects which are, of course, notoriously difficult to manage.

The prescription is likely to be for Subutex, an opioid used in substitution therapy.

This medication is prescribed in a tapered way so you gradually and safely come off the heroin with minimal side effects. The detox period lasts around 7-10 days.

When you’ve come through detox, you’ll then be supported by staff to address the psychological and emotional aspects of addiction.

Therapies make up an essential part of your programme. You’ll understand the various causes behind your heroin use and how to effectively manage these going forward so you can remain healthy.

Simply reach out to our 24/7, confidential hotline on 0800 111 4108.

Rehab for cannabis in Chesterfield

Entering rehab in Chesterfield for cannabis addiction treatment is becoming increasingly common.

THC strains are still illegal in the UK and over recent years have become much stronger.

These have great addictive potential and can lead to serious side effects.

Side effects for cannabis users include:

  • Fluctuations in appetite and weight
  • Mood swings, including low mood
  • Aggression when craving
  • Sleep disruption
  • Anxiety and paranoia
  • Psychosis

At rehab, therapists will treat the psychology behind your addiction. This includes tackling the way your brain functions.

Unravelling your thoughts and equipping you to rephrase them will be instrumental.

You’ll also learn new ways to relax and unwind. The reasons you turned to cannabis is considered as you learn new and natural ways to manage these drives.

Alternative and psychological therapies at rehab in Chesterfield

In Chesterfield while staying in a drug rehab, you’ll receive various therapies.

These are really the crux of what will empower you to become and remain sober.

Participating in these treatments wholly are where you will do the emotional and psychological work to heal.

Treatments include:

  • Brief interventions. These are offered by staff. They’re usually in the form of short conversations or activities where they will reveal new and powerful information about substances or outcomes etc. that can be incredibly motivating to your healing journey
  • Motivational interviewing is offered to all residents. Sessions focus both on what you feel are the positives and negatives of alcohol and drugs. Using this as a guide, conversation will go on to deeply explore what drives you to use substances. From this, it becomes clear where your motivation for change lies
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy is important for all residents. This is the principle psychological therapy that underpins change. You use thoughts to adapt your behaviours and are given techniques to use for the rest of your life
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT). When people struggle to control their emotional responses, DBT is offered. It focuses on understanding trauma triggers from the past and how they influence current reactions. From this you’ll be taught how to adapt your responses
  • Counselling sessions. A lot of the emotional and processing work you do at rehab will happen in individual and group counselling sessions. These offer you the space to talk about and reflect on life, the addiction, and your hopes for the future.
  • 12 Step structured groups. These offer a robust set of principles that support millions of people to achieve and maintain sobriety throughout the world. As such, at rehab you become acquainted with the first step, “I am powerless over alcohol. Life has become unmanageable” and the second, “a higher power can restore sanity”. The higher power is one you identify for yourself
  • SMART recovery groups are an essential aspect for many people in recovery because substance addiction diminishes a person’s ability to prioritise anything other than alcohol and drugs. Here, you’re given tips on how to manage life using easy-to-identify goals to achieve healthier ways of living
  • Alternative therapies are a fun and relaxing space for many people at rehab in Chesterfield. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in yoga, reiki, art and music therapy, mindfulness, tai chi, acupuncture, and equine therapy

How a dual diagnosis supports your treatment

Two people holding hands at a meeting

A dual diagnosis is given to people who have an addiction as well as a mental health condition. The two come hand-in-hand very often.

The reason for this is because of how common it is for people to self-medicate using alcohol and drugs to try and placate mental health symptoms.

Likewise, where people use psychoactive substances, there is always the risk that mental health conditions can arise from them.

Receiving a dual diagnosis means staff will be able to create a more appropriate treatment plan for you.

When you have treatments suited to both conditions you have a higher chance of staying abstinent.

Rehab and relapse prevention

During your time in a Chesterfield rehab clinic, you’ll discuss with staff how to manage cravings and triggering events.

There will be an emphasis on what to do when you leave rehab and return home.

The relapse prevention plan is an essential part of your aftercare provision.

It’s highly important that you speak openly about those things that trigger use usually.

With staff, you’ll then come up with a plan around what to do to keep yourself sober.

It’s likely your plan will include starting new hobbies, developing new social connections, and grounding techniques, as well as what to do should you relapse.

While relapse is often a part of recovery, it’s important to remember how dangerous it can be especially in relation to substances where you can overdose or have seizures. This will be discussed and planned around.

Other services that support you around recovery

Other than going to a drug and alcohol rehab in Chesterfield, you can find other addiction treatment facilities in the local area.

These include:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous which is a fellowship that exists around the world. Wherever you are in terms of addiction and recovery, you’re welcome to attend and find support from peers.
  • Narcotics Anonymous is much the same as Alcoholics Anonymous but for people addicted to drugs rather than alcohol.
  • Local drug and alcohol services that are funded by the government. They’re available in all towns including Chesterfield. There you’ll get a caseworker and be able to access outpatient support.
