Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Huddersfield

Drug and alcohol abuse continues to be a massive public health issue around the UK, including here in Huddersfield and around the rest of Yorkshire.

Drug-related deaths in Yorkshire have skyrocketed by per cent over the past decade, with 3 people dying from overdose every two days in the region during 2019.

An estimated 527 people in Yorkshire & Humber died as a direct result of drug or alcohol poisoning in 2019, a dramatic increase from 244 in 2010.

On a societal level, drug & alcohol abuse is a complex issue. On an individual basis, the equation is more straightforward – if you have a problem, you need to seek help. The best place to do this is rehab.

Rehab 4 Alcoholism can help you to find the best possible treatment at a private drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield, whatever substances you are having a problem with.

You can call us free on 0800 111 4018 to speak with one of our advisors confidentially. If you are not quite ready to call yet, please read through the information below.

What is Alcohol Addiction?


Alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, is a condition where a person has an immense psychological and/or physiological compulsion to consume alcohol, usually at high levels and regularly.

Alcoholics tend to drink at a level that is detrimental to their physical and mental health, and often feel powerless to stop drinking for a significant time.

Part of the reason it is so difficult to stop is the withdrawal symptoms associated with heavy alcohol abuse, which can include tremors, vomiting, restlessness, and severe anxiety.

Alcohol withdrawal can be so severe that it can result in seizures and even death, which is why it is never advisable for alcoholics to stop drinking without going through detox.

Alcohol detox can be administered at a residential rehab clinic, as the first part of treatment. From there, rehab patients go through a series of therapies and treatments to prepare them for recovery.

Your friend at Rehab 4 Alcoholism can help you get the treatment you need to stop drinking and start your new life. Call us on 0800 111 4018 for a free consultation.

What is Rehab?

Alcohol addiction

The word rehab can mean different things depending upon the context in which it is used, but in terms of addiction and substance abuse, it means a physical location you can go to for treatment.

Most drug & alcohol rehabs are residential, meaning that patients stay at the clinic overnight with staff on site. This provides patients with a sense of peace, security, and structure as they go through the recovery process.

This is one of the many reasons that rehab is so effective as a means of treatment – it provides a sanctuary where the person is free from the distractions and stress factors of the outside world.

Rehab 4 Alcoholism is here to provide referrals to drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield and around the rest of the United Kingdom, as well as confidential help and advice.

Pre-Rehab Intervention

Support groups

Although a lot of people come to us of their own volition, others cannot often take many years to accept that they have a problem and commit to getting help.

There is no shame in this – everyone has their process, and some people take longer than others to come around. However, it is still hard for loved ones who know about their condition to watch them self-destruct and stay in denial about their problem.

This is the purpose of an intervention – a group meeting with the addicted person and their loved ones, the purpose of which is to get them to accept help.

Interventions must be carried out as constructively as possible, and with no judgment towards the person in question. This is why it is always preferable to involve the services of a professional intervention counsellor.

We can provide advice on this, along with alternative intervention techniques such as CRAFT intervention, which involves a combination of positive reinforcement and behaviour modification.

Call Rehab 4 Alcoholism today for free and confidential guidance on how to arrange an intervention for someone you care about. Our freephone number is 0800 111 4018.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Huddersfield?

Cost of rehab

Total treatment cost varies from one clinic to the next and is also dependent on the kind of treatment you receive and how long you stay at the clinic.

For context, the average price of treatment at a private rehab clinic in the UK is £495 per day, which works out to around £28,000 for a 28-day stay.

This average is perhaps not representative of most clinics, as it includes high-end clinics which can be very expensive. Other clinics in the UK can cost much less, around £1000 per week.

We understand that everyone has their own needs and their budget, which is why we offer free confidential consultations over the phone.

Call us on 0800 111 4018 today for a quote.

Is Drug and Alcohol Rehab on the NHS?


There are rehab clinics available through the NHS and other public services such as referrals via your local council or community centre. These clinics are usually free of charge to the user.

There is a slight downside to public rehab, in that this usually means that you will have to wait, often for a substantial length of time, before your treatment starts.

Paying for a private rehab placement through Rehab 4 Alcoholism means that you can begin your treatment straight away once financial arrangements have been put in place.

Securing prompt treatment can be very helpful for those who are still in active addiction and want to get help as soon as possible.

Call us on 0800 111 4018 for a free consultation about drug and alcohol rehab in Huddersfield.

How Long Does Rehab Last?

How long rehab

This depends on the type of addiction treatment that you require and what processes need to be put into place while you are under the care of your rehab facility.

For most people, rehab doesn’t normally last longer than 28 days, which includes everything from detox upon arrival to relapse prevention planning and discharge.

Sometimes it can take a little longer to through a full programme of treatment, perhaps due to a particularly severe addiction that requires a longer detox period than usual.

This case sometimes is the case with heroin addiction or alcoholism, both of which require a detox. However, most people who go to rehab will complete their treatment in less than a month.

NHS vs. Private Addiction Treatment

If you go to your local GP and explain that you are having problems with your drug or alcohol intake, they will be able to provide you with a range of options to address the problem.

As well as things like local support groups, one of the options may be getting yourself on a waiting list for an NHS rehab clinic, which would be free at the point of use.

While public clinics in the UK are of a high standard and are certainly a viable option, it is important to be aware that there are potential drawbacks to going for public treatment.

For example, you may have to wait a long period before starting your treatment at a public clinic, whereas if you were to go private, you could start straight away.

Another consideration is that you will not have as much input or choice over the clinic where you end up for treatment, compared to if you were to go to a private clinic.

We only provide referrals to private rehab clinics, but we are happy to provide free telephone advice about how to pursue treatment at a public clinic through the NHS or other organisations.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment in Huddersfield


There are several different options when it comes to choosing the right rehab treatment package. One of the main considerations is whether to attend as an inpatient or an outpatient.

In simpler terms, this means that you have the option of staying at the rehab clinic for the duration of your treatment (inpatients) or going home in the evenings and weekends (outpatients).

Sometimes this decision can be fairly straightforward – for example, if you are trying to recover from a substance which requires a detox, you will likely need to attend rehab as an inpatient.

This is so that you can be monitored as you go through detox. Substances that require detox include alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines, and prescription opiates.

If you are not a user of any of these substances, you may be eligible for outpatient care, but only if you fit certain criteria – for example, living within a reasonable distance of the clinic for travel.

This is one of the issues that we can provide advice and clarity on.

Alcohol Detox & Rehab in Huddersfield

For anyone with an alcohol abuse problem, the first step of treatment is detox, which means ridding the body of the last remaining traces of alcohol.

Alcohol withdrawal can be very challenging to go through, with a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms to deal with. This is why it is always best to go through detox as a rehab inpatient.

Detoxing at drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield means that you can be under proper medical supervision as your body adjusts to life without alcohol.

After 7 to 10 days your detox will be complete, and you will be able to progress through the rest of your rehab treatment with a clear and sober mind.

Home Alcohol Detox

In some cases, it may be possible for a person with a drinking problem to detox by themselves in their own home, with proper medication and guidance.

This is much different from going ‘cold turkey’, where a person just stops drinking altogether without medication or other help. Going cold turkey is very dangerous and can even cause death.

Home detox is only appropriate for people with a less severe drinking problem – roughly speaking, less than 25 units of alcohol per day.

If you fit this and other criteria, we may be able to arrange a medication-assisted home detox which would cut down on treatment costs. Call us today to see if you are eligible for home alcohol detox.

Rehab for Cocaine in Huddersfield


Cocaine is one of the most dangerous drugs on the market in terms of its damage to users’ health, how addictive it is, and how expensive it is to maintain as a habit.

Despite this, cocaine remains one of the most commonly used drugs on the planet, with millions around the country have used the drug at least once.

As well as being dangerous as a substance, cocaine abuse also causes users to engage in reckless and antisocial behaviour, which can soon cause a range of problems in the person’s life.

Cocaine addiction can be treated effectively at drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield, without the need to go through detox as part of treatment.

If you or someone you know has developed a cocaine problem, call us today on 0800 111 4018 for free and confidential advice on how to get help.

Rehab for Heroin in Huddersfield


Heroin is one of the most dangerous substances in the world, as well as having a great deal of social stigma. Neither of these facts stops heroin use from being rife in the UK.

Heroin abuse has a high rate of overdose, and even those who avoid overdose can suffer severe health problems such as collapsed veins, tuberculosis, and bloodborne diseases such as Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.

Heroin also causes a great deal of social harm in terms of the behaviour of heroin addicts, who often feel compelled to commit crimes such as robbery to secure their next fix.

Heroin is one of the hardest drugs to kick, but with the right help and dedication to treatment, it is always possible to get into recovery.

The best place to do this is at rehab, where you can get through the challenging detox phase as safely as possible with round-the-clock supervision and medical intervention.

If you want to be free from the misery of active heroin addiction, we can help. Call us today on 0800 111 4018 for your free referral consultation.

Rehab for Cannabis in Huddersfield


Apart from alcohol, Cannabis is the most used drug in the UK. Unfortunately, it is also often viewed as a ‘harmless’ substance, which is certainly not the case.

Although cannabis can produce pleasant feelings in the short term, such as a sense of euphoria and altered sensory perception, it can also exacerbate a wide range of mental health problems.

Cannabis use can worsen the symptoms of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, paranoia, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. It can also lead to users becoming more socially isolated.

While it is true that overdosing on cannabis is not possible, Cannabis is not a harmless drug, and there are many people throughout the country living with cannabis addiction.

If you want to eliminate cannabis from your life, rehab is a good place to start. Detox is not required for cannabis rehab – instead, you can focus on reframing your thinking and restructuring your life.

Types of Therapies on Offer in Huddersfield Rehabs

Women talking 1-1

Addiction is a complex medical and psychological condition with a lot of different factors. With that in mind, it makes sense that the therapy programme on offer at rehab is diverse and wide-ranging.

While you are at rehab, you will be able to make full use of the different types of mental health professionals on-site, each of whom can provide you with a different type of help.

Below we have listed some of the different therapies that you might expect to find at drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield. Availability may vary by clinic.

1. Cognitive behavioural therapy


Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has several practical applications, and it is increasingly common for it to be used as part of addiction treatment.

CBT focuses on disrupting the unhelpful thought patterns that have become entrenched in our minds during addiction and replacing them with more helpful and constructive thought patterns.

2. Dialectical behavioural therapy

Dialectal behavioural therapy (DBT) has a lot in common with CBT but is more specifically used to treat behavioural problems such as suicidal ideation and physical or emotional self-harm.

These issues are very common in conditions such as borderline personality disorder, which itself is a common comorbidity of drug and alcohol addiction.

3. Brief Interventions

Recovery is a lifelong process, but it’s not all about the long-term – it is just important to get through the short-term challenges that addiction can present.

This is the purpose of brief interventions, which are interventions to help people get through short-term challenges to their sobriety, particularly in early recovery.

This could be something like having an impromptu counselling session to deal with a specific problem, or something simpler such as providing a helpline number.

4. Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a modern counselling technique where the person is encouraged to develop new forms of motivation in their life and to set out plans to achieve their goals.

Lack of motivation can be a big problem in active addiction, with a lack of self-esteem and hope for the future being a key part of that. Motivational Interviewing seeks to address that.

5. Holistic Therapies

Holistic activities and therapies can provide a boost to your well-being as well as give you something positive to involve yourself with as you go through rehab.

This might be light exercise programmes, such as yoga or tai chi. It might also include things like gardening and crafts, as well as alternative therapies such as Reiki.

If you keep an open mind, you may find that being exposed to new things can provide you with a new passion or hobby that will stay in your life even once you have left the clinic.

6. Group Therapy

Group therapy is strongly associated with drug & alcohol addiction treatment, and with good reason – it can be a very effective way of providing support to people in recovery.

Addiction can be a very lonely condition to deal with, and social isolation tends to make any mental health condition much more difficult to deal with.

Being part of a group with other people who understand what you’re dealing with can help with the healing process. This is why group therapy is such as big part of rehab treatment.

7. Individual Therapy

Rehab isn’t just about group therapy and community healing – there are some things that you may prefer to discuss one-on-one with a mental health professional.

Having regular individual therapy sessions will help you to process your emotions and trauma healthily and constructively while having privacy and confidentiality.

8. Family Therapy


Interpersonal relationships are a key component of recovery, and most people going through the process of rebuilding their life will want to make amends with their loved ones.

Family members often bear the brunt of an addicted person’s destructive behaviours. One of the ways to repair these relationships is through family therapy at rehab.

These sessions can involve family members coming into the clinic for sessions with you, with the supervision and guidance of a mental health professional.

We understand that some people do not want to have a relationship with their family, and this is their choice. Rest assured, family therapy at rehab will only happen if everyone consents to it, yourself included.

9. Co-dependency treatment

Co-dependency is a big issue among those in active addiction and vulnerable people in general. Those who are struggling will often form a bond with someone who may not be good for them.

This can be things like dating or living with someone for the sake of financial survival or so that you can use drugs or alcohol.

Co-dependency treatment enables people in recovery to assess their relationships more healthily and identify relationships which may be unhealthy or problematic.

10. Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF)

The twelve-step programme is integral to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and other similar organisations. It provides a framework of recovery for people to follow together.

Twelve-step can be incorporated into your rehab stay if you choose. Although not everyone in recovery follows the programme, those who do can have that facilitated.

Call us on 0800 111 4018 for a free consultation about drug and alcohol rehab in Huddersfield.

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

At home support

The vast majority of people who are in active drug or alcohol addiction will have at least one other co-occurring mental health condition that they are living with.

This can be mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, OCD, behavioural disorders such as borderline personality disorder, and any combination thereof.

Unfortunately, these issues can go undiagnosed for many years, all the while making the person’s everyday life much more challenging, and their addiction more difficult to manage.

Being at an approved drug & alcohol rehab in Huddersfield means that you will have access to the best quality of mental health care and be properly assessed by professionals.

This means that they will be able to identify any issues and put together a treatment plan that works in conjunction with the rest of your addiction treatment. This is referred to as dual diagnosis.

How Rehabs Help with Relapse Prevention

Holding Hands

Going to rehab is a big change for anyone. Likewise, going back into the world from the secure environment of rehab will be a big transition to make and will have its own set of challenges.

The mental health professionals at rehab are well aware of how challenging this can be and will help you to prepare for your discharge as effectively as possible.

One of the things they can do is help you put together a relapse prevention plan. This involves thinking of positive, proactive decisions you can make in your new life, as well as being aware of potential pitfalls and setbacks.

For example, you may write down a list of places that it would be best to avoid, such as bars, pubs, or clubs. This may also apply to people whom you will associate with – for example, people whom you used to drink or use with.

Another step might be committing to regular therapy and/or some kind of support groups such as AA or NA. Being as prepared as possible will stand you in good stead for starting your new life once you leave.

Call us on 0800 111 4018 for a free consultation about drug and alcohol rehab in Huddersfield.

Aftercare and Support Services Once Rehab has been Completed

Here at Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we recognise that recovery is a lifelong journey that doesn’t stop once you leave the rehab clinic it is only just beginning.

This is why all of the rehabs we refer to can offer a year-long aftercare programme to anyone who completes a course of rehab at their facility.

This can involve coming in for ‘top-up’ meetings at weekends (pending availability) as well as potentially helping to provide support for those who are still in the early stages of recovery.

There is also a range of different resources that you can access for free once you have left rehab. We have listed a range of them below.

1. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are support groups that help those in recovery to stay sober and to share their thoughts and feelings with others in recovery.

Both AA and NA are modelled around the 12-step programme, which provides guidelines for followers to maintain their sobriety on a long-term basis.

There is a spiritual component to the 12-step programme, which is not to everyone’s liking, but these groups do provide valuable support for millions around the world.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, search for ‘Alcoholics Anonymous Huddersfield’ or ‘Narcotics Anonymous Huddersfield’ to find your nearest meeting.

2. SMART Recovery

Adventure Therapy

SMART is a network of addiction treatment resources that originated in the USA and has been running globally since 1994.

It provides a secular alternative to groups like AA, focusing their programmes on evidence-based treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy.

They arrange a lot of different treatments, many of which are free for the service user. Search ‘SMART recovery Yorkshire’ to find out what they have available near you.

3. Al-Anon Family Group meetings


Al-Anon is an organisation that sets out to help the family members and loved ones of alcoholics, whether they are in recovery or still in active addiction.

It is a space where loved ones can share their feelings and struggles, without feeling like they are upsetting the person they care about or jeopardising their recovery.

Al-Anon uses its own set of guiding principles which you can find out more about on its official website. Search ‘Al-Anon Yorkshire’ to find out where your nearest regular meeting is.

Outpatient Treatment via Local Drug & Alcohol Team in Huddersfield

Group Therapy

Substance abuse disorders and addictions are health issues, and with that in mind, it is important to keep on top of them by checking in with your doctor from time to time.

As we mentioned above, your local GP surgery will have its systems in place for dealing with the social health problems of drug and alcohol addiction and substance abuse.

This will probably include some kind of community outreach team that can provide support to residents, particularly in times of crisis or when they feel you are in danger of relapse.

Book an appointment with your local NHS doctor today and ask them about what resources they have available to help you in your recovery.
