About Drug and Alcohol Rehab in St Helens

Regardless of whether you need alcohol or drug rehab in St Helens, you will have plenty of choices. These services are either paid-for or free, and we can help you to find the one that will most suit your needs. As with everything in life, there are pros and cons to each type of programme, but with our help, you can choose a provider that will suit your requirements, circumstances and budget. Below is a brief outline of the type of rehab choices you will have:

  • Local Counsellors – A local counsellor may be private or funded by the NHS. This kind of programme will involve regular meetings with the counsellor on a day care basis.
  • NHS-Run Programmes – Most people will turn to their local GP or hospital for help with their drug or alcohol addiction. While there are services available in all areas, they can be heavily subscribed meaning there is usually a waiting list for treatment.
  • Charities – Charity organisations are funded by donations and tend to provide outpatient programmes to those who need them. Some charities offer inpatient programmes to individuals in most need, but again, the waiting lists can be quite long.
  • Private Clinics – Although a private clinic must be paid for, the immediate access and distraction-free environment can be an attractive option for many addicts who want an intensive approach to recovery. Some private clinics also offer supervised detox programmes as well as aftercare for a fully comprehensive treatment package.
  • Local Support Groups – Support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are fantastic resources for those who want to overcome addiction. For persons with a severe addiction, they may not be adequate, but most patients are advised to join a support group as part of their aftercare plan.

Why Alcohol and Drug Rehab in St Helens Usually Starts with Detox

For most people, a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol is something that needs to be addressed before their treatment can begin. It is difficult to concentrate on rehab if your mind and body are still dealing with the effects of these chemical substances. To break the physical bond of addiction, a detox is usually required, and we would always advise our clients to carry out this process in a supervised facility.

There is a very good reason for this; detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be complicated, and there is always the risk of serious withdrawal symptoms. In a supervised facility, medical professionals will be on hand to react in the event of an emergency, and in many cases, they can prescribe medication where appropriate to prevent the most severe symptoms from occurring.

A supervised detox programme is the safest and most comfortable way to deal with the physical side of addiction. A typical programme can take from seven to ten days, and once it has been completed, the patient is ready to move on to rehab.

Rehab in St Helens: What Happens after Detox

One question we are commonly asked is whether a rehab programme is necessary after the completion of a detox. The answer is always yes. While some individuals will quit after a detox and manage perfectly well for a while, their risk of relapsing is much higher than a person who followed detox with a rehab programme.

It is important to remember that detox deals with the physical side of addiction – only. It does nothing to address the emotional or psychological issues relating to the illness, so without addressing these issues, the cause of the addictive behaviour will still be there.

Rehab aims to help the addict come to terms with the reason behind the addiction. Professional counsellors and therapists will work closely with the addicted individual to identify the cause of the behaviour and to help him or her deal with this in a positive manner. Various techniques will be used, and the recovering addict will learn how to spot cues and triggers to their addictive behaviour. They will be taught how to avoid these triggers to prevent an addiction relapse in the future.

Rehab is more than just learning how to give up alcohol and drugs; it is about learning how to live without them for the rest of your life. Once your rehab programme has been completed, you should consider adopting an aftercare plan that will help you to manage and maintain your sobriety. Aftercare is often included in your treatment programme, but local support groups such as Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous are a fantastic resource and will provide you with a network of support from other recovering addicts.
