How Much Will Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner Cost?
If you are saving for drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner, you need to save a minimum of £6,000.
This amount of money will not allow you to enter any luxury rehab, as these treatment centres are much more expensive. Yet, saving £6,000 will ensure you can afford high-quality addiction treatment in well-equipped and professional residential rehabilitation centres.
This predicted cost of rehab relates to a full detox and therapy programme on an inpatient programme, so it will be less than £6,000 if you do not complete each stage of treatment, or you choose to get suitable treatment via an outpatient programme.
However, even the more affordable treatment options can end up being more expensive overall.
If you have a home detox and continue to experience severe psychological symptoms of drug addiction, you may end up paying separately for private therapy.
If you relapse due to psychological stress, which is very likely, you will also have to pay for another detox.
A residential drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner will target all of your problems at once, including any mental health conditions if you are a dual-diagnosis patient. This means that you are paying for sustainable long-term recovery, rather than a temporary recovery process.

How Long Will I Stay at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner?
You can choose how long you would like to stay at drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner, to a certain extent. For example, you could enrol onto a 10-day detox, 18 days of therapy, or an extended rehabilitation programme.
We advise you to speak to an addiction specialist before making this decision, as the amount of time you spend at rehab affects your relapse risk.
Most of our clients opt to to enrol onto the 28-day programme at residential rehab and to complete the full addiction recovery programme, with detoxing and therapy.
However, if your addiction is just psychological or is less intense, it will change your treatment needs, so it is wise to carefully consider how long you would like to spend at rehab.
For example, if you are addicted to a substance that does not cause physical changes in the body, you would not experience a detox. You would then have to decide whether to go to rehab for around 18-21 days for therapy (which is the length of the average therapy programme), or to stay for a full 28 days, and get additional therapy on the days that other patients are detoxing.

Will I Get a Detox at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner?
It is very common for patients to get a drug or alcohol detox at rehab in Pinner.
The detox process is vital for people with physical addiction symptoms, as it is the only way to safely transition the patient from using drugs, to being abstinent.
During detox you will be likely experience withdrawal symptoms. These can make you feel lethargic, unmotivated, anxious and depressed, as well as forcing you to deal with muscle aches, shaking, diarrhoea, and sweating.
However, the short-term stress is what helps you to avoid long-term stress. At the end of the detox phase, which is around one week, you will already feel much better than you did when you were using substances.
Your body will have been cleansed of drugs, and you will be clinically sober.

Will I Get Therapy at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner?
Almost all patients at drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner get therapy. This is because, even if a substance does not usually produce psychological symptoms, all addictions are classed as mental health conditions, so psychological treatment is required.
If you choose to not get therapy, there is a risk that you will be putting a plaster over the problem.
Your symptoms may be healed, but without looking into why you feel compelled to use drugs or drink, there is a strong chance that you will give into addictive behaviours when you are triggered by something.
Some examples of relapse triggers for people with addiction are:
- Feeling rejected
- Being isolated
- Experiencing stress
- Struggling financially
- Losing friends
- Witnessing others using drugs
- Watching media that sensationalises substance use
These triggers do not magically disappear when you get therapy at a drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner.
You will always have to deal with these triggers, and that’s why we recommend addiction therapy to help prepare you for this. If there is always a risk of being triggered, it is best to learn how to manage it rather than pretending that it doesn’t affect you.
That way, the next time you are triggered, you can identify what is tempting you, and you can act accordingly.
For example, if you are highly stressed and therefore beginning to crave drugs, you could draw on stress management techniques, such as exercising, journalling, or talking to a therapist.
If you find that you are having to talk to someone every time you feel triggered, don’t be ashamed about this. It is likely that you will deal with triggers yourself at some point, but it does take time.
There is nothing wrong with being open with your loved ones and/or medical professionals, and appreciating their willingness to hold you accountable or reassure you.
Common therapies experienced at drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner include:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
- Brief Interventions
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Holistic Therapies (Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Mindfulness, etc.)

Will I Get Aftercare at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner?
Yes, you will get aftercare at drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner no matter how long you have stayed there for, which treatments you have had, or how severe your substance use problem is.
The aftercare will be linked to all of the above factors, which makes it extremely effective.
For example, if you have had therapy for a psychological addiction that has caused trauma, your aftercare plan may consist of trauma therapy, helpline numbers, and advice for coping with trauma on a daily basis e.g., taking care of your body, connecting with others on an emotional level, and going to therapy regularly.
If you have had a detox for a physical addiction, and you have expressed an interest in group therapy, your aftercare plan may include medication and recommendations for self-help groups such as SMART Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous.
You are also encouraged to have some input regarding the contents of your aftercare (which is also known as a relapse prevention plan). Most patients leave rehab knowing exactly what keeps them sober, and what causes them to stumble, so they are advised to inform staff of this so that these dos and don’ts are implemented into their aftercare plan.

How Do I Know Whether I Would Be Suitable for Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pinner?
We strongly advise you to try to face the facts, otherwise you may end up suffering with addiction symptoms for a very long time.
To do this, make a note of all the symptoms you are currently experiencing. Separate these symptoms into three categories: physical, psychological, and behavioural. Here is an example of some common symptoms in each of these categories:
- Physical: dilated pupils, clammy skin, dry eyes, fatigue, nausea, tremors
- Psychological: stress, mood swings, depression, defensiveness
- Behavioural: spending lots of money on substances, being aggressive, avoiding social situations
It would be wise to do more research into the symptoms of your specific substance, to find out whether you are displaying signs of addiction or dependency.
The only reason you should not go to rehab is that you do not meet the criteria for a substance use problem, or that you would be more at risk if you did attend rehab (e.g., you have a severe mental illness that needs to be diagnosed and treated before your addiction is treated).
If you do not know whether you have an addiction, or whether you would be advised to attend rehab, we can help you.

What is Rehab Recovery’s Role in My Journey to Recovery?
Rehab Recovery does not have any involvement in your treatment at private rehab. We do not provide detoxing, therapy, or aftercare – instead, our work starts before you ever step foot into a drug and alcohol rehab in Pinner.
Our primary role is to get you from your home to an addiction treatment centre as quickly as possible. We perform assessments to discover the best treatment option for you, and then we zone in on appropriate facilities that provide the type of care you require.
After we have referred you to a facility that you approve of, we let the rehab take over by leading you to the next stage in your journey to recovery.
However, we are still here to support you if you would like advice on the recovery process and what further resources you can access after your rehab stay is done.
The first step to being a Rehab Recovery client is to call us on 0800 088 66 86.
Next we will conduct an assessment, and if we conclude that private rehab is the right option for you, we will make a start on securing a referral for you.
Every rehab in England and Wales that we work with is vetted by the Care Quality Commission.
