What is Drug Rehab?
Drug rehab, short for drug rehabilitation are treatment programmes designed to help individuals facing addiction issues. The drug rehab programme is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and will generally involve detox, where required as well as a range of individual therapies and group therapies to address the underlying reasons for the addiction as well as helping the individual to develop the skills to maintain recovery after completing the drug rehab programme. At The Providence Projects, the drug rehab programmes have been designed to ensure they are effective, affordable and comfortable.
What happens in drug rehab?
Different rehab centres will all have their own addiction treatment programmes but there are also similarities between centres. At The Providence Projects, there is a highly structured timetable on a daily basis including a variety of therapies. All therapies are delivered by the highly skilled and experienced counselling team who are experts in the field.
How long is a drug rehab programme?
Drug rehab programmes can vary from 4 weeks up to 6 months. Some centres may offer stays of less than 4 weeks but this would be classed as a detox programme as opposed to rehabilitation. The Providence Projects 28 day drug rehab programme is a popular option. Depending on the progress the individual makes and their personal circumstances, there is always the option to extend if required.
Is there a waiting list?
All drug rehab clinics will have their own admission procedure. At The Providence Projects we understand the critical nature of drug addiction and very often the need for quick admission. If you are looking for an immediate admission, our admissions team are available from 8am until 10pm, 7 days a week.
Is there support for family members in drug rehab?
We understand that addiction affects the whole family unit and are very keen to provide as much support to the family as possible. As well as being involved in family therapy sessions with your loved one, you will also have the opportunity to attend our Providence Family group. This is an excellent opportunity for the family to receive support, meet other family members in the same position and begin to learn about the concepts of recovery including boundaries, self-esteem and enabling.
Will rehab cure my drug problem?
Drug rehab is very often essential to start the recovery process. Both the detox and the primary treatment programme help the individual stop their addiction and develop the skills to ‘stay stopped’. Rehab is not a cure but is a solid foundation to a long term recovery.
How much is drug rehab?
Prices can vary greatly with some centres charging over £2,000 per week. At The Providence Projects, we offer a range of affordable programmes with residential programmes starting at £695 per week.
Is drug rehab the same as drug detox?
No. Detox describes the medically assisted withdrawal from the drug itself. The rehabilitation is the process of dealing with the underlying or related issues and developing the skills to change and stay clean.
How do I know what is the best rehab for me?
It is important that you find the best rehab for you. It is not too important whereabouts in the UK you are and remember that the internet can be a minefield! Check out genuine reviews and testimonials and find a rehab that has been operating for at least 10 years. You will find referral agents on the internet who claim to offer free advice or rehabs that are right for you. We would suggest not contacting these agencies as they are not clinically trained and simply recommend centres based upon commission payments.
