Recovery.org.uk rehab live search shows every alcohol and drug rehab in Herefordshire. We will provide you will comprehesive information about each facility and help you make the most informed decision on what is best for your recovery.
Rehab centres in Herefordshire can help you or a loved one to overcome addiction. Addiction is a complex condition that can cause damage to your health, relationships, behaviour and day-to-day functioning. If you feel like you have hit crisis point, or are starting to feel out of control of your substance misuse habits, drug rehab or alcohol rehab can help you break that cycle. There are many drug and alcohol rehab centres in Herefordshire that provide a variety of treatment options. Continue reading this guide to learn more about how rehab can help you get your life back.
Treatment centres offer two types of addiction treatment that both aim to break your cycle of addiction using different methods. The first of these is outpatient treatment in Herefordshire. This is available for free or privately funded. The second option is inpatient treatment in Herefordshire (which is mainly offered privately).
Also known as day rehab, outpatient treatment offers a detox and group therapy to help you stop taking harmful substances. This type of addiction treatment is offered by giving you appointments to attend a rehab centre. You receive your treatment each time you attend, and go home after each session. This option is the most flexible because you can continue to live at home whilst you are completing your treatment programme. However, some clients find completing a detox more difficult as an outpatient, as support is limited. You must abstain from feeding your drug and alcohol addiction independently at home.
Inpatient treatment offers a more intense level of support. It is also referred to as residential rehab because you must live at the rehab centre to complete your treatment programme. You will stay alongside many other clients who are also embarking on addiction treatment, allowing you to make supportive relationships. The rehab centre will provide you with a safe space to complete your detox and other treatments, with support from professionals twenty-four hours a day. This is why inpatient treatment is often the more favourable option. It can be easier for you to focus on your treatment without your usual lifestyle triggers interrupting your progress. You can work on your treatment programme whilst staff take care of everything else. You will be provided with meals, the option to have a private or shared room and communal areas for therapeutic reflection. Many rehab centres in Hereford offer this type of treatment.
It can be overwhelming to decide what type of treatment or provider to choose for addiction support. There are many things to assess such as the quality of care provided, therapies included and what will work best for you. You can use CQC ratings of services during your research to help you assess the quality of service. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the health and social care regulators in England, who inspect services providing care and treatment. The services are assessed against a number of criteria such as staffing levels, safety of care, quality of care, effectiveness and leadership, all of which impact on the wellbeing of clients. The CQC rate a service using scores of either outstanding, good, requires improvement, or inadequate. Accessing these scores when deciding on your treatment allows you to choose the best service, as opposed to being placed in any available NHS service for free outpatient treatment.
If you decide to embark on inpatient treatment, you will have a mixture of therapies included in your treatment programme. This is beneficial because you can experience therapies that you may not have previously considered. Many clients enter inpatient rehab thinking that individual therapy will be all that helps them. However, they quickly realise that therapeutic activities and group therapy are even more beneficial to them, addressing addiction holistically. Addiction affects all areas of a person’s life, so utilising multiple treatment options ensures that no area that addiction has affected is untreated. This includes daily routines, relationships, physical addiction and emotional wellbeing. You can find out what therapy options are included on a provider’s website, to help you decide on the most appropriate treatment programme. You can also contact the admissions team of your chosen service for further information.
Private treatment centres often extend their treatment offering to the loved ones of clients. This recognises that addiction not only harms the person addicted, but their family and friends too. At Recovery.org.uk, we include family support programmes for all our rehab clients to offer support to their loved ones. Our family support programmes consist of information and advice from our team of professionals to help explain how addiction affects a person, and how to deal with the emotions that arise because of it. This can help families to gain a better understanding of what their loved one is going through as well as deal with their own emotions. This can enable families to offer better support to clients once they leave rehab.
For clients that embark on a longer residential stay with us at Recovery.org.uk, we offer the option for them to include conjoint meetings in their treatment programme. Conjoints are meetings held between the client and their loved ones which are facilitated by a trained professional. They aim to rebuild relationships and open healthy routes of communication between clients and loved ones. Creating harmony in significant relationships can help the healing process and allow greater progress to be made by clients on other aspects of their treatment programme.
You should expect to complete a detox during the first part of your treatment programme. Doing so will mean that you can work on your remaining therapies and activities when you are free from drugs or alcohol. You will be fully support by a team of professionals during your detox.
A medical detox may be offered to clients embarking on inpatient treatment as a safer form of detox. It helps to manage the withdrawal symptoms that you experience as you abstain from drugs or alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms are physical and mental reactions that your body and mind display as you become free of addictive substances. You will experience these as your body adjusts to functioning without harmful substances. Some of the withdrawal symptoms that you experience can range from sickness and shaking to confusion and hallucinations, but they are only a temporary response to your detox. A medical detox will substitute drugs or alcohol with prescribed medication to take, to help ease your detox experience during your withdrawal. You can be offered a medical detox as part of a drug detox or alcohol detox, but due to the increased monitoring required, it is unlikely to be offered as part of outpatient treatment.
Drug and alcohol rehab programmes vary between providers. They can involve a mixture of therapies such as one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). At Recovery.org.uk treatment centres, our inpatient treatment programmes usually last between two and twelve weeks. However, the duration of treatment is heavily dependent on client progress, and we welcome clients to stay longer if they wish. Our recovery approach uses the 12-step programme, which is a successful form of addiction treatment using a variety of therapies and activities to achieve long-lasting change. Non-12-step programmes are also available with different providers.
There are some free addiction treatment services available on the NHS, but these will mostly be outpatient treatment programmes. You can access these by visiting your GP, or making a self-referral. Each referral route will place you onto the service waiting list. There are limited detox programmes available on the NHS, as outpatient treatment can only provide a limited level of support. There is the option of a GP referring you to Turning Point, who are a charity with a small number of inpatient beds, but spaces at this facility are extremely competitive as it is one of the only free inpatient services.
You can access free groups in the community that provide addiction support. You will have the opportunity to meet peers on similar recovery journeys, through groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
Free services play a crucial part in addiction treatment, ensuring that anybody can access support no matter what their financial situation. However, due to the high demand for these services that is not met by adequate government funding, the waiting lists can be up to eight months long. This is not ideal if you are in urgent need of addiction support. As well as this, the increased demand creates less choice and control over your preferred treatment provider, with the majority of these only offering outpatient treatment. This makes detoxing difficult, as you cannot break free from your lifestyle triggers.
After completing rehab, you will have the tools to continue your recovery journey independently at home. You should feel proud of how far you have come, but also understand that the hard work is not over. However, our aftercare programme will continue to support you in your ongoing recovery journey.
Aftercare programmes are an excellent support mechanism helping clients to continue their sobriety at home. With Recovery.org.uk, you will have unlimited access to an Alumni network, which is an online community of all clients who have completed their stay in rehab. You will also have access to information and advice.
We encourage clients to access as much support as possible outside of rehab. Community support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and SMART Recovery can all provide ongoing peer support. You can form new relationships and share your lived experience of your recovery journey.
Telling your loved ones about going to rehab can be anxiety provoking. Perhaps you have not told your family about the extent of your addiction, or maybe you have a difficult relationship with them currently. However, it is always a good idea to involve your loved ones in your addiction treatment. Your family will want what is best for you and encourage you to seek help, so telling them about rehab will be welcome news to them. You can talk to them calmly to initiate healthy communication. Often worrying about the conversation is worse than having the conversation itself.
If you are worried about a loved one’s substance misuse habits, you should try to keep a close relationship with them so that they can always turn to you for help. You cannot force them to go to rehab, or sign up on their behalf. We advise families that gentle encouragement works best. You can share the different treatment options with your loved one so that they understand how they could be supported. The client must be willing to fully engage for rehab treatment to work so this may seem less daunting to them and motivate them to seek help.
Recovery from addiction takes time and determination. Some people leave rehab needing minimal support, whereas others may keep needing to revisit the tools and techniques from their therapies. Each client’s experience of addiction is unique to them, so as long as you keep trying, you will achieve long-term sobriety.
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.
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.
There are various types of rehab centres available in Herefordshire, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
