    What Makes People Turn to Drugs and Alcohol?

    Trauma, peer pressure, stress, being exposed to drugs at a young age, and how your parents raised you are all key factors that increase the likelihood of substance abuse.

    Findings as part of a study by professor of Genetics & Genomic Sciences Alison Goate discovered a higher usage of drugs and alcohol in people who have the gene CHRM2 (muscarinic cholinergic receptor 2).

    What Impacts Can Drug and Alcohol Addictions Have on a Person?

    Addiction is a disease that affects the brain’s activity to make responsible decisions and introduces issues. It causes a person to live in survival mode.

    With this comes the action of using the substance in order to manage the stressor which in the case of addiction is the withdrawal period.

    In North Lincolnshire alone between 2019-2020, 495 people entered treatment for substance problems. Unfortunately, for many, living with addiction becomes an impossible way of life and can lead to exhaustion, feelings of low self-worth, loneliness and suicidal thoughts.

    This is why entering treatment is essential

    What If I Suffer From Multiple Conditions Alongside Addiction?


    A dual diagnosis is actually quite common in the area of addiction. It’s where a psychiatrist identifies that the person with addiction also has a mental health problem. Often, it’s the underlying mental health of a person which will underpin the development of an addiction.

    Many people use substances in order to regulate thoughts, feelings, and symptoms related to ill mental health. Where this continues, reliance on the substance can follow.

    Some of the most common mental health conditions experienced alongside drug or alcohol addiction are:

    If you haven’t already been diagnosed with a mental health problem, this might happen during the psychiatric assessments you undergo during the admissions process. It’s really important that you answer questions honestly and are upfront about things.

    If you’re given a dual diagnosis, doctors are then better able to match you to the best treatments to support your recovery for both conditions.

    A person with a dual diagnosis will likely need a little more time and input from professionals.

    This makes a huge amount of difference in creating a solid basis for future healing.

    Many organisations across the UK offer free mental health support, whether you are also suffering from addiction or not.

    Some of these include Mind UK, Young Minds, Rethink Mental Illness, Samaritans and Papyrus.

    How Do I Know When My Addiction is Something to Worry About?

    Old woman looking unhappy

    Many people with addictions will say that they want to get control of the way they use substances but do not want to stop. Sadly, what this suggests is that the person doesn’t totally understand how addiction works in the long run despite being experts on how it affects them in the present moment.

    Addiction lasts a lifetime. When people leave a rehab clinic, they can be filled with confidence, which is great, but sometimes this can lead them to be overconfident in their ability to remain sober.

    This can lead them to see friends or go to places they used to use and this is often how people relapse.

    In order to conquer drug or alcohol addiction, abstinence is the answer. A stay at a rehab centre in Lincolnshire will support you through a safe withdrawal and will get you sober.

    It will also give you the tools to remain sober if you use them and stick to your relapse prevention plan.

    Many experts have agreed that abstinence is far more effective than harm reduction or moderation management – as a result, that’s what rehabs focus on.

    Achieve abstinence and make sure you maintain it with the help of a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire – give our team a call today on 0800 088 66 86

    Is Addiction Treatment Accessible Through the NHS?


    If you use substances in a controlled way or require light support and guidance, perhaps harm reduction techniques, then government-funded clinics are very useful. They offer 12 Step support groups that are also useful if you’ve been through rehab and want somewhere free and easy to get to locally. These focus on the concept of a higher power.

    They also might offer some one-to-one sessions with substance misuse workers.

    Free and NHS-run addiction treatment services in Lincoln include:

    1. CAMHS Lincoln

    Address: Sycamore Centre, Beacon Lane, Grantham, NG31 9DF

    Telephone: 0303 123 4000


    2. We Are With You

    Address: 26-30 Newland, Lincoln, LN1 1XG

    Telephone: 0800 304 7021


    3. Connect to Support – Lincolnshire

    Telephone: 0300 303 8789


    Private clinics offer an immersive experience and 24-hour care to people with severe addictions who need to achieve sobriety.

    There are daily therapies and group sessions to support you through the first few weeks of recovery.

    You can find additional support from organisations such as Alateen, Change Grow Live and the NHS Foundation Trust.

    How Do I Know If I Need Rehab?


    Going to drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire isn’t suited to every person who uses alcohol and drugs. It’s for those with a moderate to severe addiction.

    You can call Rehab Recovery for a discussion about your substance use. This will help you decipher whether your use is at the level that requires rehabilitative input.

    For some, however, rehab is essential.

    If you experience any of the following circumstances, then rehab is necessary:

    • Drinking more than 30 units of alcohol a day.
    • Use more of the substance than you used to in order to get an effect.
    • Losing control of how you use and used in dangerous ways put you and others at risk of harm.
    • Using a lot of many substances to feel an effect.
    • Experiencing Wernicke’s Encephalopathy related to alcohol use.
    • Where Delirium Tremens has developed from alcohol use.
    • If you have experienced seizures when withdrawing from alcohol.
    • Experiencing pain, sickness, diarrhoea, or hallucinations.
    • Where a mental health problem exists alongside the addiction, or where a person also experiences suicidal thoughts.
    • If the person becomes aggressive when under the influence.
    • Where there have been many failed attempts to remain sober.

    What is Alcohol Addiction?

    Alcohol addiction is commonly misunderstood.

    There is a difference between drinking in large quantities (binge drinking) and being addicted to alcohol.

    Addiction is something that happens when we begin to rely on substances or behaviours and find it extremely difficult to function without them.

    For this reason addictions are categorised as medical disorders by clinical professionals. 

    The Lincolnshire Alcohol and Drug Strategy for 2014- 2019 indicates that there is a significant number of individuals in Lincolnshire at risk of harmful alcohol consumption. 

    Among these:

    • 106,000 Lincolnshire residents are estimated to be ‘hazardous’ drinkers
    • Just under 25,000 are classed as ‘harmful’ or higher risk drinkers
    • And 17,000 people are dependent drinkers [1]

    The data suggests that levels of binge drinking in Lincolnshire are above the national average by 3.9%. [2]

    What Are the Signs That An Alcohol Addiction is Present?


    But if high-risk drinking is that prevalent in Lincolnshire and the wider community, then how do we spot an addiction?

    An addiction is a disorder. That means it’s classed as a health condition, and like other health conditions, there are symptoms you can look out for.

    Some common signs of alcohol addiction are:

    • Drinking at earlier times of the day
    • Drinking in unexpected locations (such as in public places or at work)
    • Drinking an increased amount 
    • ‘Snowball drinking – where one drink always leads to another
    • Continuing to drink despite negative effects on physical health
    • Continuing to drink despite negative effects on mental health
    • Tension in personal relationships related to your alcohol consumption
    • Tension or reduced performance at work related to your alcohol consumption 
    • Sudden changes in behaviour 
    • Changes in social life – becoming withdrawn, or suddenly spending time with new groups of people 

    If you use alcohol continually for three months or more, a doctor could diagnose you with an addiction. [3]

    What Impact Can Drug and Alcohol Addictions Have on Families?

    Like other health conditions and family events, addictions can take a toll on families. 

    Addictions have a ripple effect and frequently impact relationships and family dynamics, particularly on children.

    Research suggests that children who grow up around individuals struggling with addiction have an increased risk of developing emotional and psychological disorders or even addiction themselves. [4]

    A report from Public Health England recorded that 59% of adults in treatment for substance addiction in Lincolnshire were parents or lived with children. [5]

    Studies have also drawn a link between addiction and marital violence. [6]

    What is a Medically Assisted Drug or Alcohol Detox?

    A medically assisted detox is a method of treating addiction.

    A detox is a way of helping your body adjust to living without substances in the system. 

    A medically assisted detox is where medications are used to help your body make these adjustments by helping to regulate withdrawal symptoms. 

    The medications administered are legal, prescribed medications that will be regulated by medical professionals. 

    Researchers suggest that medically assisted detoxes are linked to ‘optimum treatment’ outcomes. [7]

    For this reason, medically assisted detox treatment is available at our centres in Lincolnshire and across the UK.

    What is Rehab?

    Rehab is the name for a course of treatment used to help people return to better health.

    You can have rehab for an injury, for example, or after having a stroke. The purpose of rehab is to give you the support you need to restore health and increase well-being, to ‘improve function and minimise impairment.’ [8]

    Addiction rehab is no different. 

    With the aim of helping you overcome the difficulties of addiction, rehab is designed to assist you to get back to how things were before substance use started to get out of control. 

    Rehab aims to offer you a space to focus on getting better in the short term, as well as providing you with a toolkit to help you stay sober in the long term.

    What Types of Addictions Are Treated At Rehab?

    When people think of addiction, their first thought is usually about drugs or alcohol.

    These are known as substance addictions

    At our Rehab centre in Lincolnshire and across the UK, we offer support for a range of substance addictions, including:

    Whilst substance addictions are common, rehabs can also offer support for other kinds of addiction that aren’t related to drugs. These are known as behavioural addictions and include:

    What is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

    Inpatient addiction treatment is any form of support that you access in a residential facility.

    It requires you to temporarily live in a treatment centre for the duration of your care. 

    There are inpatient treatment options at our centre in Lincolnshire.

    What is Outpatient Addiction Treatment?

    Outpatient is the opposite of inpatient treatment – you can access support on an appointment basis, meaning that you do not need to change your usual living arrangements.

    This is sometimes known as community rehab, and we offer this type of treatment in Lincolnshire and across the UK. 

    Residential Alcohol Rehab Vs. Outpatient. Which is Better?

    There is no right or wrong answer here – the deciding factor should be you and your personal needs.

    However, here are some of the benefits of both to help you choose:

    Pros of residential rehab:

    • Less distractions means more time to focus on your recovery 
    • Can provide you with a break from external stressors
    • Allows you to meet and connect with individuals in similar situations 
    • Access to round-the-clock care 

    Pros of outpatient rehab:

    • Staying at home in Lincolnshire means you can stay closer to family and friends 
    • It may be easier to can continue to work or study if needed
    • You do not need to adjust to a new living environment 
    • The adjustment period after rehab will not be as tricky

    How Effective is Rehab in Treating Alcohol or Drug Addictions?

    There is no size fits all. Everyone will experience addiction in a slightly different way, and that means that the way that treatment works for them will be different, too.

    On average, though, between 40 and 60% of people will experience relapse. [11]

    This is why it’s not uncommon for people to go to rehab more than once.

    This doesn’t mean that these people have failed, but that they may need some more support in difficult periods when life gets a bit trickier. 

    Will Rehab Cure Me of My Addiction?

    Addiction cannot be cured. Like most other chronic diseases though, it can be managed through appropriate treatment. [12]

    What Are the Benefits of Alcohol Rehab?

    Alcohol rehab can significantly reduce risk for individuals.

    This means reducing risk to mental and physical health and lessening the risk of mortality. 

    It can help to promote abstinence (refraining from using drugs and alcohol completely) and allow people some time to reset. 

    Rehab is associated with increased well-being and a greater awareness of how to use coping strategies moving forward after rehab in Lincolnshire. [13]

    Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Teens Work?

    Addiction is increasingly common in young people.

    The most common addictions in young people are to cannabis, codeine, alcohol, cocaine and ecstasy. [14]

    Studies show that the sooner addiction is treated, the more likely individuals are to recover. This is especially important in young people, when increased substance use is linked to both impaired cognitive function and higher mortality rates. [15]

    By getting help at a young age, teenagers can help themselves move forward into adulthood without the repeating patterns of addiction and dependency. 

    What Percentage of Alcoholics Recover?

    Between 40 & 60% of alcoholics experience relapse. [16]

    This suggests, on the surface, that the other 40-60% of individuals recover (meaning that they remain sober). 

    However some people may relapse and then re-enter treatment, so the number is not necessarily representative.

    What Happens If I Don’t Get Help?

    Without help, addictions can spiral.

    This can mean a myriad of things, including the development of psychological, physical, social and economic difficulties.

    These things can all potentially lead to an increased risk of mortality. 

    This is especially concerning given The Office of National Statistics statement that we are seeing ‘the highest levels of drug related deaths since records began.’ [17]

    Why Should You Avoid Recovering on Your Own?

    Without professional help, there is an increased risk that you will relapse and also a higher chance of physical health complications. 

    In 2019-2020, 23.5% more individuals were hospitalised for drug poisoning in the Lincolnshire area. [18]

    Specialist services like our rehab centre in Lincolnshire are staffed by industry experts with the research, knowledge, facilities and skills to give you the best chance to move forward towards sobriety

    Can I Recover From Addiction Without Professional Help?

    People who recover from addiction without professional help typically do so through sustained contact with support groups such as Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous.

    Both of these support groups are available in Lincolnshire and they can be very valuable tools during addiction recovery. However, research suggests that clinical treatment is a more effective tool in maintaining longer term sobriety. [19]

    This means that attending rehab and engaging with therapy is the best option to enhance your path to recovery. 

    What Are the Alternatives to Going to Rehab?/Is Rehab My Only Option?


    There are other rehabilitation options aside from staying as a resident at a private clinic. It’s useful to speak to one of the Rehab Recovery teams if you’re unsure what the most suitable option is for your treatment needs.

    What is the Admissions Process for Our Rehabilitation Centre?


    Below we have listed a few of the ways you can be assessed when it comes to being admitted into rehab.

    The ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) assessment

    This is an assessment that is used by a psychiatrist at the rehab clinic to assess addiction. It’s one that takes into account the whole picture. It focuses on various areas related to the biological, psychological, and social.

    Questions that people are asked are in the following areas:

    • Your relationship with substance use and how withdrawal affects you.
    • Your current and previous psychological health.
    • Your current and previous physical health.
    • How ready and willing you are to change and heal.
    • Your relationship with relapse and how you have managed this in the past.
    • What your life and environment is like outside of rehab services.

    With all these areas considered it becomes clear to the professional what treatments are going to suit the patient best.

    The DSM-5 criteria

    This is an assessment that takes on board various aspects of your addiction in order to gain a solid overview of how it’s affecting you. It establishes how severe the addiction is.

    This criterion was developed over years and was informed by a wide variety of professionals working in addiction.

    Patients discuss the following:

    • Whether they have developed a dependency.
    • Whether they use despite serious risks.
    • How relationships, home, education, and work are affected by use.
    • Being unable to stop using.

    This assessment can be repeated at various times during the recovery journey to identify how the addiction is evolving.

    The AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) assessment

    This assessment has proven to be highly effective in people all over the world from all different backgrounds. It’s an assessment that focuses on alcohol intake and establishes whether a person has developed a problem.

    It might also reveal that a person has developed a dependency.

    It’s a multiple question test. Those who score over 8 drink in a way that might be a cause for concern.

    Those who score over 13 might have developed a physical dependency.

    Questions are based in the following areas:

    • How much you drink.
    • How often you drink.
    • How other people react to your drinking.
    • What happens when you drink.
    • How you react to your drinking habits.

    CAGE Questionnaire

    The CAGE Questionnaire is a series of 4 YES or NO questions. Each YES answer acts as 1 point. The more points you have, the higher the indication that you have an alcohol addiction.

    These questions are:

    1. Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
    2. Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
    3. Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
    4. Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover (eye-opener)?

    How Can I Convince a Loved One to Receive Drug and Alcohol Rehab?


    Some people with addictions will refuse to accept they have had an addiction for years, despite all the evidence. The way behaviour is affected by the disease also means that the way the person talks and acts can convince the people around them that there isn’t a problem too.

    However, there comes a point where the addiction is undeniable. Where the family is able to see this, but the person isn’t, an intervention can be staged.

    Usually, a family member or two will meet with a professional and plan how to approach the individual. The aim is to get your loved one to accept the problem and to think about treatment options.

    One brilliant way of approaching your loved one as a family is by using the CRAFT intervention method. This method offers a selection of approaches that you identify as being the most appropriate according to which stage of addiction and awareness your loved one is in.

    The CRAFT intervention teaches you how to reframe conversations so that it changes the family dynamics. You’re then able to encourage the person to rehab services. It’s a method that has proven successful throughout the addiction field. It can also be called a brief intervention.

    To make sure that your loved one gets the help they need from a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire by calling us on 0800 088 66 86

    How Do I Prepare for Addiction Rehab in Lincolnshire?

    Whether you’re attending a local rehab or travelling to attend rehab in Lincolnshire, preparing for rehab can be daunting. But, there are some steps you can take to make this feel a little less nerve-wracking.

    We recommend the following:

    • Visit your rehab centre before starting treatment (you can talk to our admissions team about this)
    • Be honest with family and friends about your situation as a way to clear the air
    • Set some treatment goals to remind yourself what you are trying to achieve in rehab [20]
    • Speak with your employer or staff at your educational setting to organise a break in work or studies if needed 
    • Do some research into addiction treatment to help yourself prepare 

    How Do I Tell My Family I’m Going to a Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Lincolnshire?

    The media often doesn’t portray rehab (and addiction in general) in the most positive light.

    That can sometimes make it difficult for the people around us to grasp what addiction is actually like.  With media promoting misconceptions, there is still some stigma around addiction, and this stigma can make it difficult to talk about.  [21]

    That being said, having a support network can be a very helpful tool during recovery. For many people, that includes family. Facing addiction alone can feel like a lonely and gruelling endeavour, so speaking to your family about your situation before going to rehab can work to alleviate a lot of this pressure. 

    There are several ways you could tell your family you are going to rehab in Lincolnshire, including:

    • Writing a letter (this can help you get all of the information across without feeling like you will be interrupted)
    • Telling one trusted family member first who can then help you to tell others 
    • Asking for support from an addiction specialist 
    • Using a family therapy session to talk about addiction and your rehab journey [22]

    Do I Have to Tell My Boss About Alcohol Rehab?

    Whilst you do not have to tell your management anything, it can work in your favour if you do.

    This is because if you are seeking treatment for addiction, you will be protected under workplace legislation. This means that your workplace will need to support you in certain ways during your treatment. [23]

    If you do not inform your workplace and are struggling at work, this could risk there being an increased tension or confusion at your change in performance that without explanation, could work negatively against you. 

    Being honest is the best policy, as it will increase your support at work and will typically decrease any concern about your commitment and performance at work.

    Will Your Insurance Cover Rehab?

    If you have health insurance, you may be able to access financial support to help cover rehab costs as part of your package.

    This will vary between package and provider, so it is best to check this with your insurance provider.

    The team at our Lincolnshire centres will be happy to discuss the fine details of funding treatment with you. 

    How Long Does Alcohol Rehab Last?

    Rehab is a very personal experience which makes it hard to say for certain how long your treatment will last. 

    The typical stay in an inpatient rehab is 28 days. [24]

    But, this alters between people. Factors that can impact the duration of your rehab treatment in Lincolnshire include:

    • The kind of treatment you are having 
    • If you are in inpatient or outpatient rehab
    • If your treatment includes a detox 
    • Your personal wellbeing and safety risk

    Can I Force My Loved One to Go to Rehab?

    Unless your loved one is sectioned (meaning they are detained under the Mental Health Act) they cannot be forced to go to rehab.

    This is down to a few things, but mainly boils down to human rights and an individual’s willingness to engage with treatment.

    Research indicates that rehab is successful when people are ready to access it. If individuals do not feel that they need help with their addiction, it is not very likely that rehab will help, as addiction treatment is something that requires commitment and effort. [25]

    If you feel a loved one needs addiction support, you can potentially arrange an intervention with them. This is an in-between step that can help individuals recognise that the may benefit from support at a centre like our facilities in Lincolnshire.

    Should I Go to Alcohol Rehab or AA?

    AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) is a great tool for peer support and helping people to remain accountable.

    It is usually used, however, as part of a recovery package, rather than as an individual treatment. 

    For this reason, professionals typically recommend more sustained support either alongside or before accessing AA. 

    AA can be a wonderful form of aftercare that you can access in the Lincolnshire community following formal rehab.

    What Happens When I Arrive At Rehab?

    When you arrive at rehab in Lincolnshire you will meet your treatment team.

    You will be given a tour of the centre and will be given some more information about the site and what your personal treatment plan will look like. [26]

    You will have what is called an admissions interview to make sure that all your needs in rehab will be catered for. 

    After this, your rehab treatment can officially start. 

    Will I Be Able to See My Family During Rehab?

    A man and woman at a table with a young child

    You will be able to receive visitors at our rehab centres in Lincolnshire.

    However, it is advised that you do not have visitors too early into treatment as for many people this can increase their homesickness and make it difficult for them to concentrate during the early stages of rehab. [27]

    You can talk to your care team about visiting on-site, and will also be given the opportunity to integrate family visits into therapeutic activities, with the chance to engage with family therapy is appropriate. 

    Can I Leave Rehab At Any Time?

    Unless you are under a section or under arrest, no one can stop you from leaving rehab.

    However, it is recommended that you do not leave rehab too early (or too frequently) as doing so can work to negate some of the benefits of a structured rehab programme.

    Will My Rehab Programme Be Confidential?

    At our centres in Lincolnshire and across the country, we are proud to be guided by high standards of professionalism and UK legislation. 

    Under data protection law your information is protected and will not be shared with others outside of your treatment team unless:

    • You have disclosed that you are at risk
    • You have disclosed that others are at risk
    • You have agreed for the information to be shared [28]

    Do Rehabs Centres Provide Gender-Specific Treatment?

    At Rehab Recovery we recognise that there are instances where individuals may be vulnerable and would feel more comfortable in a non-gender-specific context for a variety of reasons. 

    For this reason, we endeavour to offer gender-specific treatment where possible. If this is something that you need help with, the teams at out Lincolnshire centres would be happy to talk this through with you to see what we can offer you. 

    Can I Do An Alcohol Detox At Home?

    A woman looking away

    It is possible to have an alcohol detox at home.

    This is known as ‘home detoxing’ and is something we offer support for.

    However, home detoxes are not recommended for everyone, as they can pose potential health risks for different reasons. 

    For some people, however, detoxing from alcohol at home can be an ideal option.

    For this reason suitability for home-based detox will be assessed from person to person based on your specific situation. [29]

    What Medications May Be Prescribed During Rehab?

    As rehab is a medical setting, there is a chance that you may be prescribed medications as part of your treatment.

    Some of the medications that are most commonly prescribed in our Lincolnshire centres include:

    • Detox medications (to help you deal with withdrawal symptoms)
    • Antidepressants, antianxiety or other psychotropic medications [30]

    Any medication you take during rehab will be monitored by your clinical team and will be reviewed at appropriate intervals.

    Is Detox With No Rehab Possible?

    It is possible to have a detox without attending or staying in rehab afterwards, however this is not recommended.

    Whilst this may be suitable for some people, detox-only treatment is not usually suggested as it only deals with one part of addiction – the physical component. 

    As most addictions are a mix of physical and psychological factors, detox-only treatment leaves the psychological side of things untreated, which can then reduce the risk of relapse later down the line. [31]

    What Happens After Initial Detoxification?

    After detoxing, you may find that you feel unwell.

    During this period you will be closely monitored by a clinical team in one of our Lincolnshire centres to ensure that you are stable and healthy.

    You may be prescribed medication to help you feel more comfortable.

    When the withdrawals start to abate, then you can move onto the second stage of rehab, which is the therapy side of things. [32]

    What Happens in the 28-Day Rehabilitation Treatment Programme?

    If your treatment requires a detox phase, then your treatment programme will begin with that.

    After that you will be able to access the wide range of psychological therapies we offer in our centres in Lincolnshire, including:

    How much will a private alcohol and drug rehab in Lincolnshire cost?


    To go to a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire prices can start at around £2,000. The clinic, length of stay, treatments you receive, and whether you share a bedroom all affect the overall cost.

    If you require detox, you’ll need to stay around 10 days. To have a room of your own, it would cost about £3,000-£6,000. For a shared bedroom, it would cost around £2,000-£4,000.

    The majority of people will require a 28-day stay. For a room for yourself, it costs around £8,000-£12,000. However, if you’re happy to share, it costs around £6,000.

    Some people might opt for home detox to wean off a substance that has created a dependency. This is where a doctor will be in regular daily contact with the patient in order to provide prescription drugs and monitor their safety.

    This costs around £1,500.

    What to consider when choosing a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire


    Addiction is not considered a ‘choice’ or ‘moral failing’ on behalf of the addiction sufferer –  so the focus of rehab is always on treating the disease of addiction.

    With all the private rehab options in the Lincolnshire area, you might feel a little overwhelmed as to which is going to suit your personality and treatment needs better.

    With that in mind, there are a few things you can ask yourself while looking into the various clinics.

    Here are some ideas of what you should consider when doing your research:

    • How long the clinic has been up and running for and what their reputation is.
    • Have a look at reviews of the clinic and see what previous residents have said about the services offered.
    • Call the clinics and have a chat with someone there, ask questions, you’ll get a feel for the one which “speaks” to you the most.
    • Find out whether the clinic focuses more on therapeutic treatments or 12 Step approaches.
    • Find out what the clinics cost to stay at for various lengths of time and compare, see which fit into your budget.
    • Find out what their success is with supporting previous residents to become sober in the long term.

    What Happens During Detox?


    Firstly, detox is only necessary for those who have developed physical dependencies. A dependency can develop when people use alcohol, heroin, or benzodiazepines regularly. These are substances that change how the body functions.

    Therefore, when the substance leaves the body, it starts to malfunction and be really dangerous.

    This is why a medically overseen detox is essential. A doctor will oversee the process, manage the withdrawal process by prescribing necessary medications, and keep the patient safe from harm and associated risks.

    How Long Does a Detox Last?

    An alcohol or drug detox will usually last between 7-10 days, depending on the substance and severity of the dependency. Alcohol detox will last around 10 days and will require the prescription drug Librium in order to manage the alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

    Further rehabilitation is usually essential in order to overcome the addiction, however. It’s through the psychotherapies that follow that healing begins to take place.

    Make sure that your detox is safe and effective with the help of a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire by calling us on 0800 088 66 86

    Do I Need a Detox Programme/Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment?


    Really, it’s best to speak with a professional to ascertain whether a detox is necessary. You can speak with the Rehab Recovery team or have a conversation with your local GP.

    However, if you ever experience the following drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms, it’s likely you need a detox:

    • Moodiness and mood swings
    • Insomnia
    • Anxiety and paranoia
    • Shaking and sweating
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Hallucinations
    • Seizures

    Complications from long-term substance abuse can include alcohol withdrawal syndrome, hepatitis and more. For physical dependence on substances, you will likely need a medically-assisted detox. For alcohol, you will probably be prescribed a drug like Chlordiazepoxide for the effects.

    At rehab you will learn new and healthy coping mechanisms to help you on your road to recovery. Additionally, you will have access to person-centred care and will be able to find information about sober living houses if needed once you leave.

    How long will I have to stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire?


    If you’re having a detox, you’ll stay at rehab for at least 7-10 days. You’ll then need to go on to have other therapies.

    Those who don’t have physical dependencies will have therapeutic and alternative therapies.

    The psychological input includes psychotherapies, alternative therapies, and relaxing activities. These focus on understanding what caused your addiction and what you can do to change your habits and your life going forward. It takes 3-4 weeks for these treatments to really solidify.

    It’s therefore standard for a person to stay at rehab for around 28 days.

    Cocaine rehab in Lincolnshire


    Cocaine use is currently rife throughout the world due to how accessible it’s become. Both the availability and price mean that more people are experimenting. This obviously leads to an increase in cocaine addiction, which can sometimes move on to creating a crack cocaine addiction.

    Many parts of the body are affected by this type of addiction: the liver, heart, lungs, and of course, sniffing cocaine famously erodes nose cartilage and rots the gums which mean people’s teeth can fall out. As well as this, cocaine is likely to cause anxiety and paranoia.

    At rehab, cocaine users are supported to adapt their behaviours through participating in cognitive behavioural therapy.

    This focuses on how to tackle behaviour in a practical way by addressing the thoughts that lead to the behaviour.

    There is also a lot of work focused on how to create long-term lifestyle changes.

    Because it is not a physically addictive substance, cocaine detox is not needed.

    Heroin rehab in Lincolnshire


    For heroin users, there are two phases of treatment. As mentioned already, heroin causes physical dependency. As such, both heroin detox and psychotherapies are required.

    Therefore, the first 7 days or so of a residential rehab stay is focused on heroin withdrawal and detox under the care of a doctor. Subutex is likely to be prescribed in order to wean the person off heroin.

    Once detox has been achieved, the focus turns to mental healing. The patient will work with therapists to understand how they reached the point of becoming addicted.

    Heroin is used to suppress pain. This for many users is also associated with suppressing deep emotional pain. In this case, dialectical behavioural therapy might be offered.

    Cannabis rehab in Lincolnshire


    Cannabis use is glamorised on TV. There are also conflicting messages about its usefulness as a medicinal product.

    The difference is that in the medical field the strain being used, the dosage, and how it’s administered are all monitored and regulated. This creates a huge difference in how people are affected.

    Illegally used cannabis is often very high in the chemical THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient that creates the sensation of a “high”. This is also the chemical that can cause psychosis, anxiety and paranoia.

    At cannabis rehab, patients are treated through psychotherapies in order to overcome their triggers. There’s also an emphasis on how to build a life without cannabis using the techniques used in alternative therapies.

    Cannabis detox is never required, as it is not a physically addictive substance.

    At rehab, you can be treated for a range of addictions including substance use disorder, opioid use disorder (Buprenorphine), gambling addiction, ketamine addiction, codependency, cocaine dependence, cannabis use disorder, binge drinking, behavioural addictions and more.

    We also help with mental health conditions such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders and more.

    Is it Bad to Drink Alcohol Daily?

    Daily use of alcohol can result in a dependence, where you become reliant on the chemicals in the substance to function normally.

    Expert Jurgen Rehm in a recent study of the link between different dimensions of alcohol use and the burden of disease found that the more alcohol consumed, the higher your chances of disease or mortality.

    The treatments offered at an alcohol and drug rehab in Lincolnshire


    Drug and alcohol rehabs in Lincolnshire offer a huge variety of treatments. The staff specialise in different areas linked to physical, psychological, and social healing.

    What is an Aftercare Programme?


    When you go to a drug and alcohol rehab in Lincolnshire, you’ll reach a point where it’s necessary to begin developing a relapse prevention plan. The staff will lead you through discussions about your internal and external triggers and you’ll come up with ideas on how to manage these.

    This plan will form a key part of your aftercare journey.

    There will also be actions for you to take in order to build a meaningful life beginning new activities that you enjoy.

    Staff are also likely to use the HALT relapse prevention method to create your recovery plan. This is where you discuss halting when you feel Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired.

    Hunger is referred to in the metaphorical sense. People often feel hungry to develop themselves or to find spiritual meaning in life, for instance. All of these human states can be triggering.

    A discussion with rehab staff will support you to understand what circumstances are likely to trigger you into these HALT states. You’ll then focus on “halting” and working through a list of steps to take which thereafter effectively manage your trigger point.

    For instance, if you felt angry you might relapse by returning to your coping mechanism, alcohol. However, with HALT, you might have a plan to firstly, breathe, then call a particular person before going to a different place in order to change your mood and manage your anger response.

    What Happens After Rehab?

    After rehab you will leave formal treatment – but that does not mean that your recovery suddenly stops.

    In actual fact, many people see the post-rehab stage as the time where a lot more work takes place.

    After rehab you can engage with aftercare. This can either take place at our centres in Lincolnshire, or in your local community. 

    This can be a very crucial step in recovery where you start to return to your daily life with a new set of skills to help you maintain sobriety moving forward.

    How Long Does Aftercare Last?

    Just like the main treatment, aftercare is a personal experience.

    That means that the time you spend in aftercare will depend on how you feel.

    Some people engage with aftercare for a few months and then feel that they are ready and have the tools they need to move on without it.

    Others might stay in aftercare for years, engaging with support groups in the Lincolnshire community as a way to stay in active recovery. [33]

    How Will I Sustain My Soberness Once I Leave Rehab?

    Anxiety about how to stay sober ‘out in the real world’ is a big concern for many people.

    During your time in our rehab centres (either in Lincolnshire or across the country) in some senses, it is easier to stay sober as you give your full attention to your recovery.

    After rehab though, you will return to daily life and will need to navigate difficult situations and your usual routine whilst also keeping on top of the recovery skills you have learnt. 

    This means that it can take some more effort to stay sober when you leave rehab – but that doesn’t mean that it is impossible.

    Some of the ways you can stay sober include:

    • Engaging with aftercare 
    • Attending support groups
    • Considering staying in a sober living house [34]
    • Staying in touch with peers also in active recovery 
    • Staying in therapy long-term 

    What is Narcotics Anonymous?

    Narcotics Anonymous (also referred to as NA or NAR-Anon) is a support group ran by individuals with lived experience with addiction to narcotics to help people struggling with addiction to recover, or to stay clean. 

    It is typically ran through group meetings (there are meetings in Lincolnshire) but can also be accessed through online forums and the NA website. [35] 

    What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

    Alcoholics Anonymous (also referred to as AA) is a support group ran by individuals with lived experience with a history with alcoholism to help people struggling with addiction to recover, or to help them stay sober 

    It is typically ran through group meetings (there are meetings in Lincolnshire) but can also be accessed through online forums and the AA website. [36]

    What is Smart Recovery?

    SMART recovery is a self-help programme of support that aims to help people struggling with addiction through offering help with:

    • Building and maintaining motivation
    • Coping with urges
    • Managing thoughts feelings and behaviours
    • Living a balanced life [37]

    SMART recovery aims to provide individuals with a toolkit they can use in daily efforts to stay sober and clean.
