    Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme

    It can come as a shock to face the reality of having an alcohol or drug addiction. One reason for this is because of the amount of effort it takes to recover.

    What’s important to remember, in fact, is that recovery is possible if you go to alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

    While it’s difficult to find statistics for Newcastle-under-Lyme specifically, across Staffordshire, the county council reported in 2021 that drug-related deaths are rising and alcohol consumption is higher than the national average.

    Many people in the area are struggling to manage addictive behaviours.

    Although you might feel stressed thinking about what’s ahead in relation to quitting, with the right treatment and support, you can make the healing journey much easier.

    You can get help for behavioural addictions, physical dependence and substance use disorders, at a rehab in your area.

    Whether it’s for an opioid use disorders, ketamine addictionbenzodiazepines, or behavioural addictions like gambling addiction, shopping addiction, and gaming addiction, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

    Using The American Society of Addiction Medicine and Patient Placement Criteria, you can be formally assessed to see if you have an addiction.

    The DSM-5 assessment is another diagnostic test. Your results can help to shape a person-centred care plan that allows you to recover for good.

    About alcohol addiction

    Female doctor holding brain scans

    Understanding what alcohol addiction is, is important as it can change the way you feel about yourself and how you act going forward.

    It is important to remember that alcohol addiction isn’t a choice. You can learn more about the disease of addiction here.

    If you are binge drinking frequently or drinking throughout the day for long periods, you are at risk of getting wernicke encephalopathy or alcoholic hepatitis.

    Unfortunately, for some people who take substances in an experimental or recreational way, to begin with, there are various factors that mean they’re predisposed to developing an addiction.

    Some people believe – falsely – that addiction is a choice; because some can drink alcohol and keep it to recreational use, while for others, it becomes a problem.

    In the case of addiction, alcohol changes the neural pathways in the brain, and it also affects the reward system. Due to this, psychological addiction forms.

    Due to how alcohol affects the brain’s amino acids and hormonal regulation, it also creates physical dependency. When this happens, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be especially dangerous as the body has come to rely on the substance to function.

    Without the prescription drugs that are provided during a medicated alcohol detox, these can even be life-threatening.

    You can get an official diagnosis by answering questions designed by the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test and CAGE questionnaire.

    Medically-assisted detox will be necessary for your safety if you have a severe dependence, as it can be dangerous to try to stop drinking cold turkey.

    Alcohol detox involves drugs like chlordiazepoxide, (Librium), to prevent delirium tremens and alcohol withdrawal syndrome.

    Entering an alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme is the most effective way of treating alcohol addiction.

    Alateen, and Al-Anon can offer you free help if you’re unable to afford private rehab.

    What happens at rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme?


    Rehab clinics are treatment centres for people who have developed addictions to alcohol and drugs. You’ll be made to feel very welcome when you stay as they’re designed to feel comfortable and relaxing.

    Addiction is not considered a ‘choice’ or ‘moral failing’ on behalf of the addiction sufferer – so the focus of rehab is always on returning agency to the patient.

    Staff welcome you and settle you in, introducing you to other residents and showing you to your room.

    It’s likely you’ll have one or two assessments on your first day in order for the therapists to understand what treatments are required on your programme.

    What interventions can you use at home?


    At home, if you’re supporting a loved one who has developed an addiction, there are various interventions you can implement.

    It’s helpful to consider how unwell you’re loved one is and how urgent it is for them to receive help. Some people, however, won’t be ready or willing to accept rehabilitation support.

    The two main types of interventions you can use are great at giving you direction when all else seems helpless.

    If you’re loved one is unwilling to accept support, or in denial of their addiction, the CRAFT intervention can be used. This is where you and the rest of the family follow guidelines on communicating with your loved one who has an addiction.

    Depending on where your loved one is in the cycle of change, there are different ways to interact. This approach is more subtle and involves focusing on healthy behaviours in moving your loved one towards considering rehab.

    If your loved one is seriously unwell and you fear for their life or if the household is under particular strain due to their addiction, then a traditional intervention might be more useful.

    Here, you’d be supported by a professional to approach your loved one and discuss their addictive habits, what treatment options there are, and some families even put in place an ultimatum if other members of the household are negatively impacted.

    There is, of course, no right or wrong way of doing this, although remaining compassionate is imperative.

    In some cases, it’s possible to be funded by the NHS to go to a private rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme. In order to access this funding, there are a few factors you’ll need to take into account:

    1. It’s only available to those from low-income households.
    2. You need to be in regular contact with local drug and alcohol services.
    3. You need to be able to provide evidence that you’re trying everything you can to quit alcohol/drugs.
    4. You apply for the funding through the local council, who will decide out of many applicants who will be awarded the funding.

    How long will you be at rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme?

    When you enter rehab, you’ll want to get the most from it. This means you’ll need to put a bit of time in. While some people stay for an alcohol or drug detox only, which is around seven to ten days, most will stay longer.

    The detox process is important as it gives the body a break and gets you through the worst of the withdrawal.

    However, to successfully equip yourself for the future to manage your addiction, you need to participate in a programme of psychological and alternative therapies too.

    As well as learning what you will do, you need a bit of time to practise new skills and techniques. In the majority of cases, people are recommended to stay at rehab for 28 days, although some might stay a week or so longer than that.

    Rehab options – NHS or private?

    Therapy Session

    You can go for either NHS addiction treatment or opt for a private alternative. There are some differences in what they offer.

    NHS treatment is found at the local drug and alcohol service. They work with people at all stages of addiction. Staff offer some one-to-one support and facilitate weekly group sessions. People might remain linked to a service for six months or many years.

    At a private drug and alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme, you receive 24-hour care from a team of experts. Staff have worked in addiction for years and remain up-to-date with changes in treatment as to what will suit you best.

    There are physical detoxes available, as well as a range of complementary therapies.

    Patients usually stay for around a month.

    The difference between inpatient and outpatient services in Newcastle-Under-Lyme


    You can access both inpatient and outpatient treatment services to be treated for alcohol or drug addiction. They’re slightly different by the fact that inpatient means you’ll be staying at a residential rehab clinic to be treated.

    This means you’ll have your own bedroom (or maybe a shared one depending on what you opt for) and will stay for a period of time.

    Private rehab clinics are mainly inpatient facilities. However, some offer post-rehab outpatient services for people who have stayed there, and many offer outpatient services in general.

    Outpatient services are where you carry on with life as usual – living at home, going to work, running the household, but going to a rehab clinic at particular times to receive treatment.

    You might go for a therapy appointment at 10 am every Friday, for instance, or go to a 12-Step group every Thursday evening. In addition, council-funded rehab centres offer outpatient services.

    Alcohol detox and rehab in Newcastle Under-Lyme

    Someone holding packets of drugs

    Thousands of people throughout the UK have alcohol addictions. It’s seriously addictive and has negative side effects for those who drink a lot and often.

    Although we are not recommended to drink more than 14 units spread over a week (about six pints), many people drink much more than that.

    Drinking alcohol can cause mouth, throat, breast, liver, and other cancers. In addition, it changes thyroid functioning and brain chemistry, impairing mental health.

    Sadly, alcohol causes physical dependencies, and when this happens, alcohol detox is essential.

    Going to alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme means you get the best treatment for alcoholism.

    Alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

    • Sweating and tremors, including delirium tremens
    • Mood swings, including anxiety and depression
    • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea
    • Confusion and hallucinations
    • Seizures

    You’ll first have to undergo an alcohol detox period where a doctor will provide you with prescription drugs (i.e. Librium). You’ll be following a tapered course for your prescription drug over seven-to-ten days to be weaned off the alcohol safely.

    Afterwards,you’ll move into the area of emotional and mental recovery work, where you really begin to heal.

    You’ll have therapies and activities that support you in understanding how your addiction developed and what you need to do to manage it safely in the long term.

    Cocaine rehab in Newcastle-Under-Lyme

    Two people arguing


    You can stay as a resident at a drug rehab to receive intensive treatment for cocaine and crack cocaine addiction.

    This is quite common as the rise in the use of this substance has taken hold of Europe, particularly the UK.

    Cocaine dependence not only ravages mental and physical health, but also tears apart families and creates an enormous amount of debt.

    Ongoing use can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts and behaviours. In addition, it reduces the effectiveness of your immune system and increases the risk of diseases.

    When you access drug addiction treatment services for cocaine, the psychological drives that underpin your addiction are addressed.

    You come to understand how cocaine changes the thought patterns that compel your habits.

    With staff, you learn the skills to change these so that you can regain control of your life. Where necessary, staff can also offer support on how to regain control of practical issues, such as those linked to finances and housing.

    Cocaine detox will not be necessary, as cocaine is not physically addictive.

    Heroin rehab in Newcastle-Under-Lyme

    Young person in therapy

    Drug rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme will treat people who have developed heroin addictions through two main stages; physical heroin detox and psychological treatments.

    Heroin addiction causes serious withdrawal symptoms, including;

    • Shaking and sweating
    • Confusion and hallucinations
    • Sickness and diarrhoea
    • Deep muscle and bone pain

    In terms of your mind, long-term heroin use changes your neural activity and hormonal balance, resulting in your cognitive processing becoming severely impaired.

    Staff at rehab will medically oversee your detox to make heroin withdrawal is as comfortable as it can be.

    Buprenorphine is one of a few medications that will make it far easier to recover.

    When you’re through this part, you’ll then begin psychotherapies like dialectical behavioural therapy to address any emotional pain hidden underneath heroin use.

    Relaxing activities will help you to ground and connect to your body and external environment in a relaxing way.

    Cannabis rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme

    CBT Therapy Session

    When you become addicted to cannabis, you develop a psychological addiction. This means that the withdrawal symptoms are very much linked to thoughts and emotions.

    This can cause cannabis use disorder, where you feel an overwhelming desire to smoke weed regularly, or even every day.

    As you deplete the substance, you can experience mood swings, low mood, aggression, and nightmares are also very common.

    Cannabis use can also cause people to experience paranoia, anxiety, and psychosis.

    THC is strong, and with the increase in people growing at home and using chemicals to force growth, the effects are a lot stronger than they were thirty years ago.

    Addiction to cannabis is treated at private rehabs using various psycho-social treatments. Therapists work with you to alter your ways of coping and to change how you feel about life in general.

    Cannabis detox is not needed.

    What therapies are on offer at rehab in Newcastle-Under-Lyme?

    Family counselling session

    It’s important your addiction treatment covers your emotional, physical, and psychological health and well-being.

    Therapy is a standard part of recovery, but psychiatric treatment can be especially useful for those with a dual diagnosis.

    As such, alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme offers you a variety of therapies and activities to support you in recovering from alcohol or drug addiction. Many of these are available in both group therapy and individual therapy formats.

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence regulates talking therapies and psychiatric treatment to keep it performing at an excellent standard.

    • Dialectical behaviour therapy is one of the more traditional types of psychotherapy on offer. It’s a space that allows you to explore and express emotions through identifying healthy coping mechanisms. Many people with addictions require support in managing their emotions, as substances have been abused for so long to mask this.
    • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an important therapy throughout the world in treating people for addiction. Its focus is on how your cognitive processes affect your behaviours. For example, from the moment the first seed is planted in your mind about drugs or alcohol, your brain follows a pathway which leads you to seek out the substance and take or drink it. This therapy teaches you to see what is going on clearly and how to take back autonomy over your actions.
    • There are addiction counselling sessions most days. These might be through discussion or another form such as art therapy. The goal is to express your truths safely and to allow the professional to guide you towards making new revelations and finding new insights to guide you in the future.
    • Motivational interviewing/motivational therapy is key in supporting people to understand what will work for them when it comes to staying in recovery. Here you learn what drives you to use alcohol and drugs and what will drive you to stop using.
    • Brief interventions are where you’re given information such as what you stand to gain from quitting alcohol to further strengthen your reasons for quitting.
    • Every day you’ll participate in group sessions. Social connection is one of the main protective factors supporting people’s return to sobriety. You’ll learn from others who understand your situation, and you’ll also find the value in  being respected and valued by others. Both 12 Step and SMART style groups are on offer.
    • Holistic therapies are one of the most enjoyable aspects of a stay at rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Here, you get a bit of “light relief” by taking part in yoga, music therapy, equine therapy (with horses), art therapy, drama therapy, ear acupuncture, mindfulness, meditation and much more.
    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy creates acceptance of your addiction and its limits, so you can commit to your recovery.
    • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing accesses trauma and repairs the mind with a series of guided eye movements.
    • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy builds positive thought patterns and beliefs, by changing the way you handle your emotions.
    • Codependency therapy helps you grow healthy relationships and teaches you how to avoid enabling behaviours, for bonds which are supportive of your recovery.
    • Contingency Management offers you rewards for each small achievement, to give you a little encouragement along the way.
    • Family therapy seeks to bring peace to your family and resolve any conflicts caused by the trials of addiction.
    • Group Therapy/group psychotherapy will allow you and a group of other people in recovery to support each other and know you’re not fighting this battle alone.

    To experience any and all of these superb therapies at an alcohol and drug rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme, call our team today on 0800 140 4690

    Dual diagnosis at rehab in Newcastle-Under Lyme

    Old woman looking unhappy

    Some people entering rehab will receive a “dual diagnosis”. All this means is that you have two conditions. In the addiction field, this usually means both an addiction and a mental health condition.

    For example, when people live with depression, they might find it impossible to lift their mood and turn to a substance like cocaine. This, of course, releases dopamine making them feel a lift in your mood for a short while.

    Some of the other illnesses people most commonly experience alongside addiction are:

    Despite the inevitable comedown, if a person remembers the “good part”, they might seek cocaine again. When this happens often, it can lead to addiction.

    It is also possible that a person may not have had a mental health condition when they started using cocaine, but they have developed one as a result of using it.

    This is common as cocaine affects the brain chemistry, central nervous system, and heart so much that it can cause anxiety, a mental health condition.

    Psychiatrists at rehab will treat you if you have a dual diagnosis. Following a psychiatric assessment, your treatment plan will be tailored to your needs.

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

    Will rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme support you to avoid relapse?

    Group therapy session.

    It’s only natural for you to think about what relapse would mean after you leave an alcohol rehab in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Relapse is unfortunately a part of recovery for thousands, and its prevention forms a core part of every aftercare program.

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

    How you act following relapse is key to your success in recovery. Therefore, in the last part of your stay at rehab, you will develop and create a detailed relapse prevention plan.

    You’ll discuss with staff what you think your main triggers are. You will then use this knowledge of your triggers, along with the new self-understanding that being at rehab has revealed, to formulate a relapse prevention plan.

    The plan will outline what to do when you have cravings and when you feel triggered. Specifically what organisations, people, and activities you can take part in to reground yourself and regain control in the moment.

    There will also be steps on how to manage should you actually relapse. Some people might remain in contact with the clinic after they leave for lighter ongoing outpatient support.

    Sober living houses are dedicated recovery homes that are drugs and alcohol-free zones.

    What other recovery support services are there in Newcastle-under-Lyme?


    Professionally supported drug and alcohol rehab is one of the best ways to recover from addiction, but it isn’t for everyone.

    There are various other places you can go in Newcastle-under-Lyme to be supported around your addiction treatment.

    • Local drug and alcohol services that are funded by the government offer group sessions, drop-in clinics, needle exchanges, and harm reduction advice. Some counselling might also be available.
    • Alcoholics Anonymous is for you if you want to make social connections who understand what addiction feels like while having a place to go regularly.
    • Narcotics Anonymous is like Alcoholics Anonymous, but for people with drug addictions. You identify and place your faith in a higher power as being a driving force behind maintaining sobriety. Other specialised sub-groups also exist, including Cocaine Anonymous.
    • SMART Recovery groups are useful if you feel overwhelmed by how to face each day. These groups help you to break down your goals into practical, achievable steps.
    • Home detox is offered to some people who need support to quit a substance that has caused a physical addiction. You’ll be supported by a doctor and be in daily contact with them about your symptoms and medical prescription.
