Rehab in Birmingham

Alcohol and drug related issues continue to increase in Birmingham and surrounding areas. There are a multitude of reasons for the rise in these problems. They affect everyone in Birmingham, from the most wealthy, to those just about managing.

Alcohol in Birmingham

Alcohol is the most common problem in Birmingham. This because it is socially acceptable, relatively cheap and you can buy it on every single street with new alcohol retailers popping up on a seemingly weekly basis. Although drinking in pubs has decreased, drinking at home has increased and in Birmingham. More and more people are drinking over the recommended weekly amount.

Drugs in Birmingham

Drug addiction in Birmingham takes many forms. The drugs scene varies depending on the suburb and the social group of the individual. Whether you’re in Birmingham, West Bromwich, Dudley, Wolverhampton or Solihull, you will have seen that there are a variety of drug problems everywhere. The most common drug problems in Birmingham and the surrounding areas are cocaine, cannabis, heroin, crack, ketamine and prescription drugs.

Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

Private Rehab in Birmingham has several advantages depending on your individual situation. In many ways the strongest benefit is that you can access high quality help quickly and safely. If you are in the Birmingham are and considering accessing private rehab, the benefits are as follows:

  • Immediate access to good quality care
  • Immediate access to detox provision to ensure that you withdraw from drugs or alcohol safely and comfortably
  • Comprehensive therapy programme to help you address the underlying issues to ensure that you are able to stop and stay stopped
  • A programme that is delivered by highly trained addiction specialists who fully understand the nature of alcoholism and addiction
  • Care and support in an environment away from your addiction
  • Excellent success rates; by engaging in a proven, high quality rehab programme, there is every opportunity to recover long term.
  • Family therapy – This can help rebuild some broken relationships as well as give the family the opportunity for support who have also undoubtedly suffered as a result of the drinking or using

There are not many disadvantages to private rehab programmes except for one main issue; cost. Rehab programmes can appear to be quite expensive and this is normally as a result of the cost of the care provided. Private rehab facilities have a very high staff: patient ratio as well as high levels of expertise in the specialist subject of addiction. Unfortunately, this cost can be a barrier to some individuals and families but at The Providence Projects we endeavour to keep the prices as affordable as possible.

How much does rehab cost in Birmingham?

There is very little choice of quality residential rehab provision in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Most residents of Birmingham attend residential rehab programmes outside of the Birmingham area.

The cost of alcohol rehab and drug rehab programmes vary on a range of factors but are usually priced between £600 and £6,000 per week. Most commonly programmes are approximately £1,500 per week.

Rehab costs will also vary depending on the length of programme. Detox and rehab programmes can range from 1 week to 6 months and are tailored to suit the needs of the individual.
There are often payment plans which can help individuals and families spread the cost of the programme.

NHS drug & alcohol rehab in Birmingham

On occasions, there are limited NHS drug and alcohol rehab options in Birmingham, which also cover the areas of Wolverhampton, Dudley and Walsall. Of course, in most cases this would be ideal for cost reasons. Unfortunately, accessing free or NHS funded rehab in Birmingham is becoming increasingly difficult. Waiting lists have increased and the option of a residential rehab centre is sometimes not an option at all.

When NHS rehab is available, individuals are generally expected to try a range of day services, engaging in local authority programmes first before they would be considered for detox and rehab. Each local authority or drug and alcohol team will have a list of providers that you can potentially choose from.

In many cases, it is understood that those who wish to access treatment quickly, will do so privately.

How to choose the right rehab

There are several types of rehab programme for you to choose from. Some rehabs use a 12 step approach, whilst others use a therapeutic approach. Most rehab centres use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy too. There is not a one size fits all method. The key is to find the right one for you. There are however some suggestions that apply to all choices:

  • Choose a rehab with a long track record – Ideally at least 20 years
  • Choose a rehab with good success rates
  • Choose a rehab with good reviews
  • Choose a rehab which is affordable for you
  • Choose a rehab that you feel comfortable with after speaking to
  • Choose a rehab with well qualified and experienced staff team

Travel in Birmingham

The majority of Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings, Narcotics Anonymous Meetings and drug and alcohol agencies are accessible by a range of public transport. There are a range of bus services that operate around Birmingham so most of these agencies are easily accessible.

Travel to Rehab

If you make the decision to access a private rehab facility, there are two main options. Sometimes, individuals like to be brought by their family or loved ones, as it is generally not advisable to drive to rehab yourself. Alternatively, most rehabs do offer a collection service which is often free. When you speak to the rehab centre, just ask for a collection and this will be arranged for you.

6 December 2018  

Addiction is such a complex problem and there’s no straightforward solution to it- everyone must work out their own path. I can’t narrow my sobriety down to one single factor, but what I do know is that going to the Providence Projects was a very positive and significant step, where I initially showed a willingness and openness to change. It was extremely beneficial to be able to openly discuss my addiction with qualified therapists and be around other people who understood- you can be so totally different to someone, yet if you’ve both suffered with addiction, you will unquestionably be able to bond. I found the support of the team and the friends I made there hugely helpful. The Providence Projects additionally gave me a sustained period of sobriety in which to gain some perspective and be able to start looking at the bigger picture in a clearer way. If you’re reading this, then you’re probably struggling with addiction yourself, or know someone who is. My advice is just DO IT- go to rehab and really work hard on getting yourself out of the situation you’re in, starting with self-belief. Good luck. x

A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have – and continue to do so. Highly recommended…
