What is Alcohol Addiction?

People who are addicted to alcohol find it very hard to get through any length of time without drinking alcohol or enabling themselves to do so.

This obsession with alcohol can cause a great number of problems with the person’s social life, finances, and mental and physical health.

Addiction can manifest both psychologically and physically, with a spell of time without alcohol causing a great deal of anxiety in the addicted person, as well as the potential for horrible physical withdrawal symptoms.

These symptoms can include nausea, tremors, excessive sweating, and seizures. Alcohol withdrawal can even be fatal if not managed properly.+

This is one of the reasons that rehab is such a great option for treatment – you can detox properly under medical supervision with appropriate medication.

What is Rehab?

Living room

Rehab clinics are places that you can go to get help with addiction problems, particularly drug & alcohol addiction, although there are other types of rehabs for things like gambling addiction.

Going to rehab offers patients the chance to get all the help they need in a secure and peaceful location. It offers a standard of care and accommodation that you cannot get anywhere else.

There are thousands of private rehab clinics in the United Kingdom, and we have links with almost all of them. Take advantage of our industry knowledge and experience to find the right rehab for you.

Pre-Rehab Steps: Intervention

people sat around holding an intervention

Before a person can get treatment for their addiction/substance abuse problem, they must first accept that they have a problem that needs to be dealt with.

This can take years for many people if left unchecked, which is why those around them will often feel compelled to stage an intervention.

There are a few different ways of doing this, with the most typical way being the loved ones sitting down with the person and explaining how their behaviour has affected everyone.

This is an effective method but can often lead the person to become defensive and/or agitated. This is why it is always best to involve a professional intervention counsellor wherever possible.

Another method of intervention is known as CRAFT, short for Community Reinforcement and Family Training. This is a technique that involves positive reinforcement for behaviour changes.

We can provide advice about the different types of interventions and how best to enact them.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Grimsby?

Cost of rehab

Private rehabs, like any other type of private business, have their pricing rates and different methods of operating their business.

This means that the price of drug & alcohol rehab in Grimsby will vary from one clinic to another, as well as your personal needs and circumstances.

The cost of rehab in the UK averages about £495 per day for a full programme of residential treatment. However, this average does include high-end clinics which can be very costly.

Some rehabs offer residential care for much less, while still maintaining a high standard of care and treatment on-site. This can be as little as £1000 per week.

For us to give you a more accurate estimate of your treatment cost, we would need to speak with you first. Call us on 0800 111 4108 to start the conversation.

Can you get Drug and Alcohol Rehab on the NHS?

Doctor talking to patient

Yes, there are a large number of UK rehab clinics that you can access through your doctor, most of which will be free at the point of use.

Public-funded clinics like this will almost always have a long waiting list, which is something that you should be aware of ahead of time.

Clinics will often prioritise their waiting list according to need, so it is not possible to say how long you would be waiting for treatment. It is not uncommon to be on a list for months.

Although private rehab will need to be paid for, either directly by yourself or through your insurance provider, the main advantage is that you can start your treatment straight away.

Call us on 0800 111 4108 for free and confidential advice about Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Grimsby.

How Long Does Rehab Last?

How long does rehab last

This is something that we would need to speak with you about first, to get more clarity about your needs and circumstances.

For most people, rehab lasts for about 28 days. It can be longer if you take longer than average to get through the detox part of treatment – this is usually between 7 and 10 days.

Some people take longer than 10 days to complete detox, and that is fine – the process cannot be rushed, as it is all about ensuring your safety and well-being.

A lot of drugs do not require a detox. This includes cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis, and speed. This may mean that your total time at rehab is slightly less than a month.

NHS vs. Private Addiction Treatment

Support groups

To be clear, here at Rehab 4 Alcoholism we only refer to private rehab clinics, meaning that there will always be a cost for treatment, payable either by you or by your healthcare provider.

An alternative to this is seeking treatment at a public clinic, through the NHS or another public organisation. This treatment is free of cost to the person getting help.

As you might expect, there is usually a substantial waiting time for treatment at a public clinic, owing to the number of people on the waiting list.

Paying for treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab in Grimsby means that you can begin your treatment straight away. This can be of high importance to someone who is in crisis with substance abuse.

If you would like to pursue public rehab care, we can provide advice on how to go about that. We can also help you to figure out if you might be able to put financial arrangements in place for private care.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment in Grimsby

Therapy session

One of the reasons that our free telephone consultation is so valuable is that we can find out the particulars of what you are looking for in terms of your treatment and advise you accordingly.

One of the main decisions to be made is whether it would be best for you to attend rehab as an inpatient, staying overnight for the duration of your rehab, or as an outpatient, staying at home for evenings and weekends.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both. The main advantage of outpatient care is that it is always more affordable, as there are no accommodation costs to consider.

The downside of outpatient care is that it is not for everyone – if you have a severe addiction, or do not live within a reasonable distance of the clinic, it is probably not appropriate for you.

We can help you to figure out what treatment path is best for you. Call us on 0800 111 4108 and we will help you to find the right treatment at drug & alcohol rehab in Grimsby.

Alcohol Detox & Rehab in Grimsby

Rehab building

As a big part of British pop culture, alcohol is the most abused drug in the UK and is also the drug that most people seek rehab treatment for.

As well as being among the leading causes of premature death in the UK, long-term alcohol abuse can lead to health problems, and relationship breakdowns, and can damage a person’s livelihood.

The best way to break the cycle of alcoholism is at rehab, where you can go through a proper medical detox, usually with the aid of a medication called Librium.

Librium helps to manage the physiological symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, which can be extreme and should never be faced alone.

After you have got through rehab, which should take between 7 and 10 days, you can begin to put in the work during your therapy sessions and learn to manage your addiction well enough to stay in sobriety for the long term.

Rehab for Cocaine in Grimsby


Cocaine abuse is rife in cities and towns around the UK, the results of which can cause a lot of problems for the user and everyone around them.

As a stimulant alkaloid, cocaine makes people who use it feel energetic and extremely sociable and can provide an elevated sense of self-esteem in the short term.

However, cocaine is a dangerous substance which can often lead to heart problems and other catastrophic health problems, even in those who are otherwise physically fit and healthy.

It also often causes people to become very unpleasant to be around. Cocaine users can be highly temperamental, paranoid, obnoxious, and otherwise antisocial.

If you have a cocaine problem, you can turn your life around by getting help at a drug & alcohol rehab in Grimsby. We are here to make that as easy as possible for you.

Rehab for Heroin in Grimsby


The abuse of heroin and other opiates is now so widespread across the United Kingdom that it constitutes a public health crisis.

It is not just the individual that is affected by heroin abuse – their loved ones, families, and communities all feel the impact of the drug and the effect that it has on people.

The discomfort and pain of heroin withdrawal mean that users will often go to extreme lengths to afford their next fix, such as stealing or committing other crimes.

Although getting off heroin is one of the most challenging things a person can do, recovery is always possible with the right care and an ongoing commitment to the treatment programme.

Rehab is the best place to get help with heroin recovery, as you will be able to go through detox under full medical supervision, before moving onto a medication programme and other therapies.

Rehab for Cannabis in Grimsby


Cannabis use is so common in the UK that a person may not look twice if they see someone openly smoking the drug in the street.

However, the drug causes real problems for hundreds of thousands of people around the country, of all ages and backgrounds.

Cannabis can exacerbate existing mental illnesses and contribute to developing new mental health problems. It is not, as some people may claim, a ‘harmless’ drug.

Rehab is not just for ‘harder’ drugs such as cocaine and opiates. If cannabis has a hold on your life, you can get help at a quality drug & alcohol rehab in Grimsby or the surrounding area.

Call us on 0800 111 4108 to confidently speak with one of our team. We can help you to locate the ideal rehab for you.

Types of Therapies on Offer in Grimsby Rehabs

You probably already knew that therapy is a key part of rehab. What’s less well-known is how many different types of help there are available during your time at rehab.

We have listed a brief description of the types of therapy that are usually available at rehab. Availability may vary depending on your clinic, your location, and other factors.

1. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy


The human brain is very adept at forming patterns and associations, and while this can be useful in certain situations, it can also cause unhealthy negative thought patterns to develop over time.

The purpose of cognitive behavioural therapy is to identify these unhelpful thought patterns, challenge them, and replace them with new, healthier ways of thinking.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to treat a range of different behavioural problems and mental health conditions. Nowadays, it is very common for CBT to be a part of addiction treatment.

2. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy

Individual therapy

Dialectal behavioural therapy (DBT) has some similarities with CBT and is based on the same clinical framework. It is particularly useful in treating personality disorders and their symptoms.

Personality disorders are much more common in people with substance abuse problems than in the general population. The same can be said of symptoms such as self-harm and suicidal ideation, which DBT is effective at treating.

As well as conditions such as borderline personality disorder (BPD), DBT is often used to treat behavioural problems like compulsive gambling and other high-risk behaviours.

3. Brief Interventions

Group with notes

Recovery isn’t just about the long-term. It is important to get addicted persons through their short-term challenges safely, especially during the early days of recovery.

Brief interventions are short-term interventions that help a person get through a rough patch by providing a short-term solution, such as a helpline number or emergency counselling session.

4. Holistic Therapies

Holistic therapies at rehab can provide you with new experiences while also giving you something positive to apply your focus and attention to the outside of your more traditional therapies.

Different clinics will have different holistic therapy programmes, potentially including things like equine therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and others.

Your rehab schedule could also involve some enjoyable and mindful activities such as gardening, yoga, and mindfulness meditation. All of these activities can enhance your overall treatment experience.

5. Group Therapy

Support Group

Group therapy is often associated with addiction recovery, and with good reason – it is very effective and provides people with a sense of community and shared experience.

You will likely have quite a lot of group therapy sessions in rehab, which will usually be run by a mental health professional and/or a fellow service user.

These sessions give you a chance to share with people who understand addiction first-hand and will know better than most what you have been going through.

6. Individual Therapy

Recovery Groups

Although group therapy is a key part of rehab, it is also important to have your own private space to discuss your issues with a licensed professional.

You will have access to industry-leading mental health professionals who will be able to help you work through your trauma and put together a plan for changing your behaviour for the better.

This should help you with managing your addiction, disrupting negative self-talk, and reframing your outlook on your future and life in general.

7. Family Therapy

Family is very important to most people. Sadly, living in active addiction can cause these relationships to become frayed or even result in complete estrangement.

When in recovery, one of the potential ways of addressing this is through family therapy, which will involve talking with your family members with the help and supervision of a counsellor.

This is not a mandatory part of the rehab experience – we recognise that some people do not want to have a relationship with their family anymore.

For those that do want to rebuild their relationships with family members, a few sessions of family therapy can go a long way towards healing those wounds.

8. Co-Dependency Treatment

Anyone can form unhealthy relationships, but this is particularly common with people in active addiction, who often form unhealthy bonds with others, often out of a survival instinct.

Co-dependency treatment at rehab can help you to make sense of your relationships, your social interactions, and how they may have contributed to your substance abuse problems.

Having a better understanding of relationships and healthy boundaries can help you with your relationships and well-being in recovery.

The Importance of Dual Diagnosis for Co-Occurring Disorders at Rehab

A lot of people who have life-limiting mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety will go for many years without knowing that they have them.

In fact, according to a 2001 study by the World Health Organization, an estimated two-thirds of the people who have a mental health disorder go untreated for their whole life.

Getting the right treatment in place for a person’s mental health challenges is rewarding in itself, and it can make it so much easier for the person to manage their addiction.

Being in the care of a diverse team of mental health professionals will mean that you will be able to have any issues identified and diagnosed, which is the first step to dealing with the problem.

The clinical staff will also be able to put a treatment plan in place that complements the rest of your addiction treatment and will not jeopardise your recovery. This is referred to as dual diagnosis.

How Rehabs Help with Relapse Prevention

Man with pen

Going to rehab and getting through treatment is a wonderful achievement, and anyone who gets that far into recovery should be proud of how far they have come.

However, these are only the first steps of long-term recovery, and your new sober life begins once you have walked out the doors of the rehab clinic.

This is something that rehab staff will help you to prepare for as effectively as possible – they won’t just leave you to fend for yourself now that you are through treatment.

They can help you to create a relapse prevention plan, provide advice about accommodation and personal safety, and generally make sure that you are in the best possible frame of mind as you leave the clinic.

Aftercare and Support Services After Rehab

Just as people going into rehab for the first time may be apprehensive or nervous about what to expect, it can also be a big adjustment going from rehab back into the outside world.

Please be assured – you are not alone, even after you have left the clinic. There are aftercare programmes available at all the clinics we refer to, included in the price of treatment.

This can involve going back to the clinic for a visit whenever you feel comfortable doing so. This will usually be on evenings and weekends so that it doesn’t disrupt the care of people who are still being treated at the clinic.

There is also a wide range of free resources available within your local community once you have left your drug & alcohol rehab in Grimsby. We have identified a few of these below.

1. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

Person writing on a notebook at a group meeting

You’ve probably already heard of Alcoholics Anonymous, often referred to as AA. It is a network of support groups that offer help and guidance to help alcoholics to achieve recovery.

Operating around a 12-step model, AA asks attendees to turn themselves over to a higher power of their understanding.

This approach is also mirrored in equivalent organisations such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

All of these groups operate around the world and provide meetings for free, sometimes with a donation being encouraged. Search ‘Alcoholics Anonymous Grimsby’ to find your nearest AA or NA meeting.

2. SMART Recovery

A bumpy road

If you don’t feel comfortable with the spiritual approach taken by AA and its equivalent organisations, other more secular organisations can help you with your recovery.

One of these is the SMART Recovery network, which was founded in 1994 in the USA. They offer clinical treatments such as CBT and DBT, often for free to the service user.

SMART operates all around the UK. Search ‘SMART Recovery’ to find out what resources the organisation has available near you.

3. Al-Anon Family Group Meetings

Family in field

Al-Anon provides support for people who have a family member or loved one who has struggled with alcoholism, whether they are in active addiction or recovery.

They have their own set of guidelines that effectively mirror the 12-step programme of AA. You can find out more about Al-Anon at their official website.

Drug and alcohol addiction is a health issue, so it is perfectly appropriate to check in with your doctor about your substance abuse issues.

This is the case whether you are still using or are in recovery – your doctor will be able to make you aware of any free resources that might be available in your area.

One of the things that they might be able to arrange is for you to be under the care of a drug & alcohol outreach team, who can provide you with various forms of support.

This might include home visits or just occasional check-in telephone calls – it depends on what you are comfortable with and what your needs are. Speak to your NHS local GP for more information.
