Drug and alcohol rehab in Derby

A drug or alcohol dependency can leave you feeling isolated, but it is so important to know that help and genuine support is available whenever you are ready. There are so many fantastic addiction treatment services, and the first and most important step is to reach out and ask for help. Whether you are looking for drug rehab or alcohol rehab, there are some wonderful rehab centres that can provide the support and treatment you need. In this guide, we will explain everything you need to know about drug and alcohol rehab in Derby so that you can get started on your journey to recovery.

Types of addiction treatment and rehab programmes in Derby

Choosing the right recovery programme can seem like a huge task, especially with so many different treatment centres available. The first thing you should know is that there is both inpatient treatment in Derby and outpatient treatment in Derby, and while both approaches have their advantages, there are some key differences.

Outpatient addiction treatment (day rehab)

When seeking addiction treatment, many people will first consider free outpatient treatment at an NHS day rehab centre. This is often considered the best choice because it will enable you to live at home, continue working and taking care of your other responsibilities, and only attend rehab for your scheduled appointments. Unfortunately, drug and alcohol addiction usually requires a more immersive treatment approach than can be provided by day rehab. Outpatients who receive treatment while carrying on with their everyday lives are still exposed to all of the stresses and difficulties which may be underlying contributing factors in their addiction.

Inpatient addiction treatment (residential rehab)

In order to put some much-needed distance between yourself and these potential addiction triggers, it is usually advisable to undergo inpatient treatment at a residential rehab centre. You will stay at your addiction treatment centre as a resident during the entire course of your treatment programme so that you can focus purely on your recovery. There are various rehab centres in Derby offering inpatient treatment, and if you are confused about which one will be right for you, give us a call or send us a message and we can advise you. Inpatient treatment is usually privately funded but your medical insurance may be able to help.

Why inpatient rehab?

Not only does residential rehab provide the most immersive approach, there are various other reasons why it is often the most effective option. Choosing the best rehab clinic can be difficult but for extra guidance, you can use the CQC ratings given by the Care Quality Commission. The CQC is an independent body that gives a score based on factors such as leadership and levels of care, and so you will be able to compare different clinics’ scores to help you choose. Inpatient treatment incorporates a mixture of one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which address every aspect of addiction. Residential rehab centres also provide family support programmes to help loved ones through the rehab process. These programmes – along with sessions called conjoints, which are designed to give clients and their families a safe place to communicate – help to strengthen relationships and ensure that the client has all the support they need.

What should I expect from a detox in Derby?

Detox is a critical part of addiction treatment, as it purges all of the drugs or alcohol from your system so that you can start your therapy. This can be a potentially dangerous process with severe withdrawal symptoms, so detox should always be done in consultation with a doctor or a qualified medical professional.

Medical detox

When you choose residential rehab, the support and guidance of medical professionals will be available straight away. Your overall health and the extent of your addiction will be fully assessed and a judgement will be made with regards to whether you are at risk of developing potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms. If so, you will be offered medical alcohol or drug detox, which will involve round-the-clock medical observation and detox medicine to help keep you safe and comfortable during the process. While medical drug and alcohol detox is available to both inpatients and outpatients, day rehab patients may need to wait a long time for a bed to become available, which can delay the start of their addiction treatment. As an inpatient, you may be apprehensive about the amount of time medical detox will add to your time in rehab, but it really is a key stage of the recovery process.

Drug and alcohol rehab programme

When researching the various options, you may notice that each rehab clinic has its own recovery approach. Some use a non-12-step programme which focuses only on the underlying causes of addiction, but clients follow a 12-step programme, which is a far more holistic approach to addiction treatment. 12-step programmes incorporate one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to cater for the unique needs of each client. The first few stages of these programmes take around twenty-eight days, so you will need to commit at least a month to your stay in rehab.

Is rehab free?

The NHS does provide free addiction treatment services but these are limited due to government cuts. You may be able to get a place through self-referral, but if there are none available, your GP may prescribe a detox programme instead. For help with financing private treatment, speak to the charity Turning Point, who may be able to assist you.

Free addiction treatment services in Derby

There are other organisations as well as the NHS which offer free addiction services in Derby. Go along to your local AA meeting and you will be able to meet other people on their own recovery journeys.

The downside to free services

Government cuts during austerity have caused major shortcomings in free NHS services. All addiction treatment is now outpatient only, and it is virtually impossible to provide outpatients with the holistic approach that is most effective in treating addiction. Even places in day rehab are now very difficult to come by, and those that are lucky enough to get a place often find that there are no appointment times to fit their schedule. Getting access to medical detox can also be very difficult through free services and can cause serious delays, which increase the chances of relapse.

What happens after a rehab programme?

Leaving rehab can be both very exciting and also a little scary, with some people worried about slipping back into old habits or being exposed to old triggers.

Aftercare programmes

We offer our clients additional group therapy and assistance, and also give access to our online Alumni network in order to grow our family of clients helping each other during the post-rehab stages of recovery.

Long-term recovery from addiction

Rehab is just the first stage of a lifelong journey to recovery, but it is important to remember that everyone is different and will have their own obstacles to overcome. Where everyone who has undergone rehab with us is the same, however, is that all will have our continued support long after their time as a resident is up.

Can you force someone to go to rehab?
It must be the person’s own decision to go to rehab, so you cannot force them if they do not want to go. Addiction has a profound effect on people, so they must decide when it is the right time for them to engage with support. You can encourage someone to go to rehab through open and honest discussions about your concerns for their wellbeing.
Can I sign up for rehab for someone else?
Unfortunately, you cannot sign up to rehab on behalf of someone. The person has to decide to go to rehab themselves and be ready to accept support; otherwise, the treatment is unlikely to be a success.
How long does a rehab process take?
The rehab process can vary in duration in line with how much progress the person has made. At, many of our clients will stay for at least four weeks to ensure that there is enough time to fully engage with the programme. However, a person can stay in rehab for up to 12 weeks or longer if they choose to.
What is treated in rehab?
Rehab is the place to treat an addiction to any substance or behaviour so that a person is no longer dependent on it and can regain control of their life.

Can I visit a person who is in rehab?
Rehabs have a visiting system allowing you to spend planned time with a loved one receiving addiction treatment. At, visiting times are every Sunday.

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus pandemic resulted in us postponing visiting to help stop the spread of the virus. As soon as it is safe to do so and in line with government guidelines, we will re-introduce visitation.

Are there free rehabs in Derby?
There are some free rehabs providing addiction treatment in Derby. These are mostly accessible via an NHS GP referral but can take considerable time from referral to admission. Free rehabs mostly provide outpatient treatment, so you may wish to consider accessing private inpatient treatment if you would prefer a residential stay.
Can I get rehab funding through the NHS?
Obtaining funding from the NHS to go to rehab can be challenging. There are only a small number of applications approved, and the application process can take a considerable amount of time. You can have a discussion with your GP to start this process.
Why is going to rehab important?
Rehab can be life-changing for people with all levels of addiction. You can learn new life skills to help you maintain sobriety, as well as meet a wide support network of peers and professionals to support you in the long term. It provides holistic support to help you recover from the physical, psychological and social challenges that addiction causes.
What is the difference between rehab and detox?
A detox helps with the physical aspects of addiction by helping you to stop taking addictive substances through a period of abstinence. Detox is a crucial part of the recovery process because it allows you to engage with the remainder of your rehab programme.

The rehab programme is therapeutic and focuses on the psychological aspects of addiction, teaching you tools and techniques to live a life free of addictive substances.
