Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford

As part of drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, understanding what constitutes an addiction is one of the most essential factors that contributes to recovery efficiency and general effectiveness of treatments.

By understanding the disorder, individuals are far more likely to engage more effectively with addiction treatment programmes, as well as have a greater knowledge of their addiction and its origins.

Addiction can change the way that the brain is wired, often increasing activity in the areas where addictive behaviours, motivation, and anxiety are controlled.

This is true for alcohol specifically, as it is known to affect the concentration of serotonin – a hormone that is essential for everyday processing and going about the individual’s daily life.

This can quickly worsen, as addiction is a disease that can cause a decline in the individual’s health rapidly if not properly detected and managed.

What is Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford?

Alcohol addiction

Rehab is the process of overcoming a disorder, ailment, or injury. In the case of drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, rehab refers to the process of overcoming an addiction.

Across Deptford, individuals will work through addiction programmes specialised for their needs, taking part in a variety of activities such as counselling, group sessions, and individual treatments in order to manage their addiction and continue this in the long run.

Through drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, the approach followed is that of abstinence.

This is known to be the most successful aim of rehab, as individuals learn to cope without the substance, staying away from its addictive qualities and the additional negative effects it may have on an individual’s health and wellbeing.

In the UK, alcohol is one of the most commonly consumed drug, especially due to the strong drinking culture in the country and the lack of support available from producers and manufacturers.

Interventions as a Pre-rehab Step

For some individuals, it may be useful to take part in such activities as an intervention before pursuing further drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford.

Interventions are most often used when the individual is in denial about their addiction but can also be implemented by any friend or family member who feels that the individual struggling with addiction may need additional support.

As part of an alcohol intervention, individuals share their experiences of addiction, as well as listen and learn from the experiences of others who may have had to deal with their addiction from a very different perspective.

These conversations are often mediated by a licensed counsellor or interventionist as this allows the most useful and suitable suggestions to be made by close friends and family about the future of the individual’s rehabilitation options.

Modern techniques of intervention are often far more effective than traditional methods, as they have a stronger focus on building communications and encouraging friends and family to support the individual as they change their lifestyle and/or rehab prospects. (1)

How Much Does Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford Cost?


The cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford depends on the services, the length of time spent in rehab, and the individual’s engagement and experience in different treatment programmes.

Every individual will have a different overall cost of their treatment, and this can be very difficult to predict at the beginning of one’s rehab journey through drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford.

However, with residential rehab, there are some factors that can be predicted before an individual even enters a specific treatment programme.

For example, accommodation is a factor that individuals can consider before making any final decisions, as the cost can be compared across different centres.

On average, a multiple occupancy room is far less expensive, costing around £6,000 for a 28-day stay or around £3,000 for a 10-day detox.

For a single occupancy room, the cost for the 28-day stay can be far more, sometimes around £10,000 to £12,000 or around £4,500 for a 10-day detox session.

Additional factors such as insurance, location, and services available will also affect the overall cost, so ensure to discuss these in the initial stages of application.

Is Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford Available on the NHS?

There are some options for drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, though these are often hugely restricted by the funds and resources allocated to these services.

The NHS is a government-funded service, meaning that all costs associated with treatments are funded by government budgets and allocation of services.

However, this often restricts the services available, leading to an increase in the availability of low-cost services such as counselling and group therapy, but making access to residential centres almost unheard of.

In general, it is more common for rehab services such as counselling to be accessed rather than more effective and successful treatments such as those found in residential centres.

How Long Does Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford Last?


Similar to the cost of rehab, every individual will stay in drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford for a different duration, experiencing different costs and treatment programmes to treat their specific case of addiction.

Because of this, there is no set time for rehab, and every individual will progress at a different rate.

Where it may take one person to complete a therapy course within the recommended 28-day stay, another may take slightly longer, allowing for the recommended stay to be extended.

28 days is the recommended duration of an addiction treatment course through Rehab 4 Alcoholism, as it allows for time to commit and engage with different treatment programmes, as well as allowing individuals to detox and settle into their new recovery environment.

NHS Rehab Options vs. Private Addiction Treatments

When it comes to the provider of addiction treatment for drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, there are several different options which individuals may choose.

The two most common of these are treatments accessed through the NHS and the treatment received within private residential rehab centres.

The NHS are the most accessible addiction treatment provider due to their convenience, local location, and free services.

However, these service providers often have long waiting lists due to the number of individuals trying to access these services and this can incur a delay in treatment which, when it comes to addiction, can cause serious additional harm to the individual.

Private addiction treatment, such as that received within a residential centre, can be far more beneficial in these instances.

Residential rehab is especially suitable for individuals with complex addiction-related issues and the elderly, though it is generally the first option that is recommended for those struggling with addiction. (2)

Individuals who need it are able to enrol immediately after an initial telephone assessment and the around-the-clock and supportive approach to care within these centres increase the success and long-lasting nature of the individual’s recovery.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment: Which is Most Suitable for Me?

In addition to the provider of rehabilitative services, it is also important for individuals to consider where this treatmentwill take place.

For drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, the two main categories are inpatient and outpatient care. In general, these refer to the situation and/or environment in which an individual will undergo rehabilitative treatment.

Inpatient care is the most commonly recommended form of rehab – the rehab undertaken within a residential rehab centre.

This type of care allows for complete separation from the individual’s previous lifestyle which may have been worsening their addiction and allows for a distraction-free environment through which to make the most meaningful and impactful changes.

This is most suitable for individuals with a longer duration of their addiction or for those with more specific and complex needs.

On the other hand, an individual may choose to take part in outpatient treatment. This is a slightly broader category, as it refers to treatment received through any other addiction support service.

Popular outpatient services include individual therapy, group talking therapy, and addiction support network groups e.g., Alcoholics Anonymous.

This is suitable for individuals who may not be suitable for residential care and may also be recommended to those who have a shorter history of addiction.

Alcohol Detoxification & Rehabilitation in Deptford

Rehab 4 Alcoholism has a long history of supporting individuals struggling with addictions to alcohol – one of the most common addictions in the UK.

In 2018, the UK reported over 5,600 alcohol-related deaths – a number that has increased since 2008. (3)

Through alcohol rehab in Deptford, individuals will understand that alcohol is a physically addictive substance, meaning that the body has become dependent on the substance and any attempts to withdraw will risk serious withdrawal symptoms.

These include alcoholic seizures, increased sweating, insomnia, and body tremors, though they can include death in serious cases where the symptoms are incorrectly managed.

After the detoxification process, it is always recommended to follow with a further course of treatment including therapies in order to combat the effects not dealt with through a detox – those affecting mental health.

This will increase the likelihood of a more successful and effective recovery.

Cocaine Detoxification & Rehabilitation in Deptford


Cocaine is another extremely addictive substance requiring suitable rehabilitation. Most commonly consumed as a recreational substance and incurring strong psychological effects, cocaine can be seriously addictive if not properly managed.

Cocaine is a strong stimulant, leading to a psychological crash in extreme cases. It is also the substance most commonly consumed alongside other substances such as alcohol.

However, cocaine is not physically addictive, and the detoxification process involves a slow transition away from cocaine to sobriety.

After the detoxification process, individuals are encouraged to engage in various psychological treatments including both individual and group talking therapy, as well as any additional treatments required for further issues – both physical and mental.

Heroin Detoxification & Rehabilitation in Deptford

Heroin is perhaps the most infamous addictive substance. Known to be a worldwide issue, heroin is seriously addictive and causes individuals to seek more and more with each consumption session in order to gain the same effects.

Like alcohol, heroin is also physically addictive, leading to a serious risk to life during the detox process in cases of a long-term addiction.

Heroin itself can also lead to a range of physical effects when used frequently and in high doses. This includes risk to the heart and lungs, as well as an increased chance of developing liver disease or blood clots.

During a heroin detox, individuals are most likely to be recommended a heroin substitute such as buprenorphine in order to slowly cut down on their heroin consumption and begin taking a substance that is less damaging in terms of physical and mental health effects.

This is a process known as tapering and is the safest method to detox from heroin, though the substitute drug, buprenorphine, is known to also possess addictive qualities and further rehabilitation should always be in mind with this process. (4)

Cannabis Detoxification & Rehabilitation in Deptford


Cannabis continues to be the number one drug consumed in the UK. With a range of effects, many people may not consider it to be an addictive substance, but this is often far from the truth. (5)

With effects such as enhanced introspection, panic attacks, increased appetite, greater libido, and changes to perception in time and space, there are many ways in which someone may experience consuming cannabis.

However, it is not a physically addictive substance, meaning that individuals can stop usage completely – known as going ‘cold turkey’. It is also possible to slowly cut down on usage over time.

After this process, however, individuals should seek further care. This is most commonly recommended to include psychological treatments – the basis of most of the long-term effects of cannabis addiction.

Types of Addiction Treatment Therapy Available in Deptford


Though every individual will have a different experience of drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, it is likely that they will come across or at least hear of some of the following therapies.

This is because these are the most effective forms of therapy for individuals struggling with addiction and have positive widespread implications for the treatment of the disorder.

The most common therapies available in Deptford are listed below:

The Importance of Dual Diagnosis in Effective Addiction Treatment

In a large majority of cases, individuals diagnosed with addiction are also diagnosed with an additional mental health issue at the same time.

This is a common occurrence as addiction is often theorised to be the product of underlying mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

During treatment through drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, it is therefore important that care is sought for both (or all) disorders. This will ensure the most efficient approach to treatment.

If effects from both disorders are treated simultaneously, the individual is far more likely to make a successful and efficient recovery, including the longevity of their sobriety.

How Rehabilitation Helps Prepare for Relapse Risk Prevention

As a vital component of rehabilitation through drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, individuals are likely to experience relapse risk prevention planning.

This is the creation of a plan put in place to assist individuals when they feel as though they are in a situation in which they may relapse.

This plan, made by the individual should include useful information and support in case a relapse may be possible.

Relapsing is never guaranteed for individuals leaving rehab, but most of the plan’s creation is the understanding that recovery is part of personal growth and can therefore not be rushed, skipped over, or ignored.

Useful information to include consists of emergency contacts such as a friend or family member, addiction support officer, or member of the individual’s addiction support network as well as information about their triggers and cravings.

Aftercare & Additional Services Available after Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Deptford

At home support

After leaving drug and alcohol rehab in Deptford, there are a number of following services that an individual may be suggested in order to support their future rehabilitation and recovery.

This is known as aftercare – the final stage of rehabilitation.

Through a residential centre, this may include contact with an addiction support officer or supervisor through which the individual will have regular meetings to assess their progress and provide any further support.

Individuals may also be recommended further addiction treatment courses such as SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) which uses a combination of CBT and MI in order to support the individual’s continued rehabilitation.

Individuals may also join addiction support networks such as those found through Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. These are great ways for individuals to meet others in similar situations and learn from others’ experiences as well as share their own.
