    Before Rehab: Interventions and Referrals

    If you are considering going into drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon or are trying to encourage a loved one to seek addiction treatment, then knowing what pre-rehab steps you can take can help make the process less daunting.

    People who want to seek out addiction treatment themselves can either do so via self-referral or referral by a professional body such as your GP or social worker.

    NHS addiction treatment usually requires referral by your GP, however there are several outpatient services, private rehab facilities and addiction charities who will take self-referred patients.

    You can find out more about drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon which accepts self referral and agency referral patients in the ‘Rehab and Treatment Centres in Hendon’ section below.

    Seeing a loved one going through addiction can also be an incredibly difficult thing to cope with, so if someone you know is struggling then it’s important to know how you can help.

    If your loved one is open to discussing treatment options, then you can support the person to seek help by going through treatment options with them, accompanying them to the GP, helping them to get in touch with treatment centres or making a friend or family inquiry on their behalf.

    For people who are not open to discussing addiction treatment, there is also the option of holding an intervention.

    Interventions can be conducted using different approaches, and hiring a professional interventionist is a good way to ensure that the process is handled properly.

    Emotions can often run high during interventions, and it can be difficult to manage an intervention alone.

    The CRAFT approach to interventions is a more modern approach, which revolves around supporting the person when they take any positive step in recovery.

    In contrast to one meeting between the person with the addiction and their loved ones, the CRAFT approach teaches family and friends how to support their loved one through positive reinforcement.

    This approach has been shown to help patients enter into recovery and can create a supportive environment for both patients and their families.

    Drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon is the organised treatment of physical and psychological addiction to drugs or alcohol.

    The aim of rehab is to help the person to detox from the addictive substance, abstain from taking the substance and maintain sobriety long-term.

    Treatment plans are tailored to the individual, and there are a range of treatment plans ranging from more to less intensive.

    Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hendon: Private vs NHS

    When you explore options for drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon, you can choose to opt for private treatment or NHS treatment.

    As explored in the ‘Cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon’ section, one of the key differences between NHS and privately funded addiction treatment is the price.

    NHS drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon is free whereas private rehab costs an average of £495 per day in the UK.

    However, there are some other things to consider as well as the price when it comes to deciding how to fund your treatment.

    Waiting Times for Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hendon

    NHS: NHS addiction treatment is a great option which makes treatment accessible for all, no matter their financial situation.

    However, due to the amount of people seeking NHS treatment, waiting lists are often between 3-6 months and sometimes up to 1 year.

    Outpatient services are usually quicker to get on to but still come with long waiting lists.

    Private: Private rehab centres in Hendon usually take in patients within 24-46 hours. As they are private, they have less patients than NHS centres and therefore have more scope to treat people quickly. The short waiting times are available for both inpatients and outpatients.

    Range of Treatments Available in Private and NHS Rehab

    NHS: Due to the very limited funding of the NHS, the understaffing crisis and the number of people seeking NHS treatment, the treatment options in NHS addiction treatment are also reduced. This means that most of the treatments in Hendon are on an outpatient basis, and the number of therapies available is often more limited than in a private rehab centre.

    Private: Private rehab clinics have inpatient and outpatient availability, often with a broader range of therapies and treatments. Depending on which centre in Hendon you attend, you could have access to a spa or swimming pool, yoga and gym facilities and therapies such as music therapy or art therapy.

    Taking into consideration the cost, waiting times and treatment options available in the NHS and private addiction treatment is essential when deciding what options are right for you.

    You can be rest assured however, that whether you choose NHS or private drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon, you will be supported through your recovery journey by a team of medical professionals with expert training in addiction and mental health.

    Inpatient vs Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hendon


    There are two main types of addiction drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon: inpatient and outpatient.

    Inpatient refers to treatment carried out when a patient remains in the rehab centre overnight. Inpatient treatment programmes usually last 28 days, including a 7-10 day detox period. The patient stays in the rehab centre during this time.

    Part hospitalisation refers to a patient who stays in the rehab centre for some of the time, before moving into outpatient treatment. This usually occurs when a patient stays in the rehab centre for a 7-10 day detox before returning home for the remainder of their treatment.

    Outpatient treatment is when a patient stays at home throughout treatment,only coming into the rehab centre for their addiction treatment sessions. For example, they might come into the centre 3-4 times per week to attend support groups, counselling or family therapy.

    There are varying levels of outpatient treatment including intensive, where a patient will attend long sessions several days a week, or less intensive where a patient will only attend shorter sessions a couple of days a week.

    The type of treatment you have will depend on your needs as well as your circumstances – for example, if you have co-occurring disorders, health issues and a social support network.

    Finally, patients who need extra support with housing and life skills can also stay in halfway houses or sober living facilities alongside their treatment, where they have a safe space to stay and will learn skills to help them with their future.

    Detox and Rehab for Alcohol Addiction in Hendon

    Alcohol addiction can be a severe and dangerous condition, increasing the risk of several health issues including heart disease, strokes, liver disease, multiple cancers and memory loss.

    In England alone, a huge 1.6 million adults are estimated to have some level of alcohol dependence.

    If you feel that you are concerned about your drinking, or you are worried for a loved one, then alcohol rehab in Hendon could help you get your life back on track.

    The first stage of alcohol addiction treatment is an alcohol detox. Withdrawing from alcohol can be dangerous and even fatal, so in most moderate and severe cases alcohol detox is conducted in a residential rehab centre.

    This is to reduce the risk of harm from severe withdrawal symptoms such as seizures, confusion, heart problems and the Delirium Tremens (DTs). Some of the withdrawal symptoms may also be managed with medication, and this is known as a medical detox.

    Medically managed detoxes can also take place at home, if a person has a milder case of alcohol dependence and/or they have a close support system to help them through the detox period. Medications such as Librium might be used during this time.

    Alcohol detox lasts for around 7 days, however the recommended detox period is 10 days to ensure that withdrawal symptoms are being managed and that the patient can focus on the next recovery stage.

    The next recovery stage is the alcohol addiction therapies and treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, one to one counselling and group therapy. These will last for around 2 weeks if inpatient, but can last months if conducted on an outpatient basis or if there is a need for prolonged treatment.

    Rehab for Cocaine in Hendon

    Cocaine is a widely used illegal drug which often produces feelings of happiness, alertness and energy. For this reason, many people use it as a ‘party drug’ to enhance a night out, socialise or increase their energy levels.

    However, cocaine also impacts physical and mental health in several negative ways. Use of cocaine can increase the risk of nose problems (including holes developing), asthma and respiratory diseases, paranoia, irregular heartbeat and malnourishment.

    Therefore, cocaine dependency can be a very harmful condition to have, and seeking treatment as soon as possible is key to helping you out of your addiction.

    Cocaine detox is the first step in cocaine recovery, and this can be done in a residential rehab or at home.

    The withdrawal symptoms from cocaine are generally not as dangerous as for alcohol or opioids, and therefore medical management is often not necessary.

    However, it is worth noting that if something a polydrug user (uses multiple substances) for example cocaine and alcohol, or if they are addicted to crack cocaine, then a more closely managed detox might be needed.

    Your detox plan will be discussed with you when you seek treatment, and might involve medications to help relieve some of the withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, paranoia, sleep problems, depression or irritability.

    Following a 7-10 day detox, either at home or on an inpatient basis, you will then go through addiction therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy or contingency management to treat the psychological aspects of your addiction.

    Rehab for heroin in Hendon


    Heroin is a type of drug known as an opioid, meaning that it is a drug which is used as a pain-killer. However, it also produces feelings of euphoria, making it highly addictive and likely to cause the user to seek out that same feeling again and again.

    This use in many cases rapidly develops into an addiction, and often causes health effects such as collapsed veins, liver disease, heart infections, kidney disease, skin infections, depression and overdose.

    Many of these health effects are very severe, and can lead to permanent damage and even death. In 2019, there were over 650 heroin-related deaths in England and Wales.

    Heroin detox therefore needs to be carefully managed, often medically managed on an inpatient basis to lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms.

    Some of the main withdrawal symptoms of heroin addiction include nausea, diarrhoea, increased breathing and heart rate, vomiting, anxiety, cramps, sweating and insomnia.

    The detox period lasts around 5-10 days, after this time the withdrawal symptoms lessen and you can continue the rest of your treatment.

    You may however still be given medication such as Methadone to help your mind and body to adjust to life without heroin.

    Following a successful detox, you will then go through a course of addiction therapies such as counselling and behavioural therapies to help you overcome your addiction.

    Rehab for cannabis in Hendon


    Cannabis is the most widely used illegal drug in the UK, with 7.4% of 16-59 year olds reporting to have taken the drug in the last year.

    Dependence on the drug is also on the rise, with an increase of people seeking treatment for their cannabis dependency in 2021-2022 and 21% of people entering treatment for addiction stating that they had an issue with cannabis use.

    Cannabis is often viewed as a harmless drug, however cannabis can have several negative impacts on physical and mental health.

    Some of the most commonly seen negative mental health effects include depression, anxiety, paranoia, memory problems, decreased IQ, increased risk of psychosis, hallucinations and delusions.

    When smoked, cannabis can also worsen health issues such as asthma and increase the risk of lung and respiratory issues.

    Cannabis detox is usually done on an outpatient basis at home, as the withdrawal symptoms are less severe than for opioid or alcohol addiction. However, medication may be prescribed to help with withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and insomnia.

    Following a detox, you will then attend addiction therapies, again often on an outpatient basis.

    However, inpatient options may be available depending on your needs.

    These therapies might include cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling or group therapy.

    What Is a Dual Diagnosis for Co-Occurring Disorders?

    Therapist and patient

    Dual Diagnosis refers to a diagnosis of another mental health disorder alongside the substance addiction (known as substance use disorder). This other disorder is known as a co-occuring disorder, as it occurs alongside substance use disorder (SUD).

    It is essential to be aware of any co-occurring disorders that a patient might have for several reasons:

    • The disorders can (and often do) impact one another – so to treat one disorder effectively, the other disorder must also be treated.
    • The treatment of one disorder can affect the other disorder – so all people involved in treatment need to be aware of both disorders.
    • The co-occurring disorder might be one of the underpinning reasons behind the development of the substance use disorder, or vice versa

    Co-occurring disorders are very prevalent in patients with SUD, and almost 40% of adults with substance use disorders have co-occurring mental illnesses.

    Some of the most common co-occurring disorders include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

    If you know of, or suspect you might have, any other mental health disorder alongside your drug and/or alcohol addiction, then make sure to discuss this with your doctor or healthcare professional attend your initial assessment for drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon.

    You can also get free mental health support from organisations like Mind UK, Young Minds, Rethink Mental Illness, Samaritans and Papyrus.

    How Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hendon Can Help with Relapse Prevention

    Two people holding hands

    Relapse prevention refers to the support put in place to help people who are recovering from addiction to stay on track, prevent a relapse and/or lessen the impact of relapse if it does occur.

    When you complete addiction treatment, a personalised relapse prevention plan will be created with you.

    Relapse prevention plans are a collection of documents full of advice, tools and methods to help you manage your addiction independently.

    They often include sections that you write in yourself to help you recognise where you might encounter triggers or cravings and how you can cope with them.

    For example, if you know that a certain time of day or environment is likely to create the urge to use your addictive substance, then finding alternative things to do during that time or changing your routine can help offset that urge.

    Recognising where the challenges might be before you leave drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon, can help you significantly in managing your addiction outside of treatment.

    Using the methods and knowledge obtained during your treatment, you will end up with a completed relapse prevention plan with personalised methods to prevent a relapse. You will also be taught the key signs of relapse to help you stop one before it is likely to occur.

    Finally, a relapse prevention plan will also include the contacts of aftercare services in Hendon such as charity support services, counselling services, local support groups, drop in services, doctors contact details and crisis hotlines. It is also best to include loved ones’ contact information also.
