Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Cannock

    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Cannock

    One of the most obvious triggers for addiction is exposure. The more you spend time with people who use drugs, and the more you experiment with them, the closer you are to developing a drug or alcohol addiction.

    However, people who are not often around addictive substances can still develop an addiction, and people who are constantly exposed to drugs will not necessarily become addicted.

    This is simply a common trigger, meaning we frequently see high exposure to drugs linked to severe addiction.

    Another common addiction trigger is loneliness. Isolation can be crippling, and some people with addiction started using drugs to try to escape the negative emotions they were dealing with as a result of being alone.

    Again, plenty of people with addiction have strong social circles, and people around them who are willing to do anything for them.

    However, a lonely person is more likely to be a drug user, as a lack of connection can cause us to self-medicate in order to feel better temporarily.

    Genetics is another trigger for substance abuse.

    We can be born to parents who are battling addiction, and when this is in our genes, it is harder to avoid.

    No one out there is condemned to addiction by their genetics, but they can have a harder time staying sober as a result of their genetics.

    Mental health issues are also commonly associated with addiction, and this is for similar reasons to the loneliness trigger.

    People attempt to deal with their issues by taking drugs or alcohol, as this can take their mind off their problems for a short period of time.

    How Can I Cope With Addiction Triggers?

    Therapist and patient

    If you do not have a drug or alcohol addiction, but you resonate with some of the above triggers, you will need to make sure you don’t start to depend on substances.

    If you choose to remain completely sober this will significantly reduce your chances of developing an addiction.

    However, you could also adopt the approach of ‘everything in moderation’, and set boundaries to control this e.g., not drinking every day, building solid friendships, and going to therapy, a process also known as harm reduction.

    However, if you already have a drug or alcohol addiction you will have to take sobriety much more seriously. There is no longer any doubt as to whether you can handle a moderate relationship with substances – you know that drugs are ruining your life, so you need to do something about it.

    We recommend going to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock to learn how to cope with addiction triggers.

    Patients at private rehab will share their tips on this, and you will also get personalised advice from qualified therapists.

    After residential rehab, it is strongly recommended to continue with therapy. That way, you can discuss how you are being triggered on a regular basis, and come up with a plan (with the help of your therapist) to battle these triggers.

    Try to find a therapist that specialises in addiction, as they will have the best advice and support for staying sober after your time in rehab has come to an end.

    What are the Costs For Rehab Centres in Cannock?


    If you plan to go to a residential drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock and get a 28-day treatment plan, it could cost you between £6,000-£12,000.

    We have helped many clients to find more budget-friendly treatment plans than this, so if you cannot afford the predicted costs for residential rehab, get in touch and we will outline your options.

    Attending drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock as an outpatient is more affordable, as you do not have to pay for accommodation.

    However, if going through a private service you will still pay for detox and therapy (usually both holistic therapy and behavioural therapy).

    What are the Cons Of Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Cannock?

    There are usually many more risks involved with not going to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock, than going.

    We do not want you to be put off by the cons of private rehab for various reasons.

    Firstly, they are not cons for everyone.

    Just because one person has a certain challenge at rehab does not mean every patient will face this same challenge.

    Secondly, even with its disadvantages, drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock is the best way to recover from addiction and lead a healthier life.

    That being said, we are always transparent about the potential cons of drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock.

    One is the cost, which we have already covered. Many people do not have the money to fund private rehab, especially as costs have been rising in the UK over recent years.

    Another disadvantage is time – you usually have to spend a full month at rehab, and plenty of preparation goes into this (particularly if you work or you have young children).

    Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Cannock For People in Employment

    1. Can my employer pay for drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock?

    There is no legal requirement for your employer to pay for your personalised treatment at drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock, so it is very rare that this happens.

    If your workplace has policies for people with addiction, you should ask about their policy regarding payment, in case this is something you could benefit from.

    However, most employed people pay for their own 28-day stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock.

    2. Can my employer stop me from going to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock?

    No, your employer cannot stop you from starting a recovery programme at a drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock.

    As the laws are slightly vague regarding employees going to a rehab centre, they may be able to take your job away from you. However, this usually does not happen.

    Most employers will support you in going to residential rehab. They may talk to you about what they can put into place when you get back from rehab, to ensure your return to work is as smooth as possible.

    If you are going to an outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock, you may be tempted to try to fit work into the hours that you are not in the drug or alcohol treatment centre.

    However, you will still need to put your full energy into getting sober, and any added stress from work could be a threat to this.

    3. Will my colleagues know that I have been to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock?

    It is possible that you have had another colleague to go to a rehab unit, and you have witnessed the gossiping that can happen when they have to take over a month off work.

    If this is something that you are worried about, you can have a word with your employer and ask them to keep your rehab stay private.

    4. What can I do if my addiction has ruined my career?

    If you feel as though your substance abuse has destroyed your career, you are not alone. There are around 330,000 drug users in the UK, and 80% of them are unemployed.

    If you are unemployed or you are struggling to progress in your current career, going to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock could help you to get back into work.

    There will be workshops given on careers, which can help you to figure out your next steps and how to cope with addiction as someone who is employed.

    When you leave rehab and go back into work, you will not be left alone. Your complimentary aftercare plan will help you to manage employment and addiction at the same time.

    For example, you could be going to therapy regularly, having calls with people at drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock, and going to self-help groups (e.g. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, SMART Recovery).

    Applying to Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Cannock

    To apply to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock, you can either contact the rehab facility yourself and ask how their admissions process works, or contact us and ask for a referral.

    Some people with addiction prefer to organise the referral themselves, as they believe it is quicker to cut out the middleman.

    However, this could not be further from the truth.

    When you come to Rehab Recovery for a referral, we do not have to spend time working out the admissions process for the different rehab centres you are interested in. We already have a database of excellent private rehabs in Cannock, and we know how to complete a referral with each rehab.

    We also know the questions the rehab facility is going to ask, so we can plan ahead by asking you these questions on our telephone assessment.

    For example, we can ask if you have any diagnosed health conditions (mental health or physical health), whether you are prepared to have a medical detox at rehab, whether you have ever had individual therapy or group therapy, and whether you have been to drug and alcohol rehab in Cannock before.

    Every rehab in England and Wales that we work with is vetted by the Care Quality Commission.

    Get help for addiction across Staffordshire, including in Stoke-on-Trent, Tamworth, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Burton-upon-Trent, Stafford, Lichfield, Burntwood, Kidsgrove, Rugeley, Leek, Biddulph, Hednesford, Stone, Wombourne, Uttoxeter, Heath Hayes and Wimblebury, Cheadle and many more.
