    Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    The damage that drug and alcohol abuse has caused within the United Kingdom in recent years cannot be overstated.

    Recent alcohol abuse figures from the ONS state that there were a total of 8,974 deaths directly related to alcohol in the UK in 2020 – equating to 14 deaths per 100,000 people.

    Illicit drugs are a huge problem as well. Official government statistics show that from 2016 to 2017, over 300,000 people in England aged 15 to 64 used one crack, opiates, or both.

    You can read more about the disease of addiction here.

    What is Alcohol Addiction?

    Man considering something.

    Alcohol addiction is a physical dependence upon alcohol. It goes to the extent that the person would experience moderate-to-severe withdrawal symptoms when stopping drinking.

    Alcoholics find it very difficult to go any significant length of time without drinking alcohol or thinking about ways to enable their drinking.

    It is an obsession that manifests both psychologically and physically, with the risk of dangerous and unpleasant withdrawal symptoms if going ‘cold turkey’ and stopping drinking without medical assistance.

    It is always best to treat alcohol addiction at residential rehab, where the person can detox safely and get the other help they need.

    What is rehab?

    two people holding hands

    Rehab clinics are places where a person can go to get comprehensive treatment for alcohol or drug addiction from a range of different professionals.

    During rehabilitation, you can get a medically-supervised detox, be part of group therapy sessions, get clinical treatment for your addiction, and access other complementary activities.

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

    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.

    Most rehab clinics provide on-site accommodation so that patients can remain there for the duration of the treatment. This is referred to as ‘inpatient’ rehab.

    Pre-rehab steps: Intervention in Stratford-Upon-Avon

    A man and a woman talking with a health professional

    There is a mountain of evidence suggesting that rehab is a very effective method of treating addiction. However, a person can only get that help when they are ready to admit that they have a problem.

    A lot of people can stay in addiction denial for years before it finally becomes too much, and they accept that they need help.

    One way of speeding that process along is through intervention.

    We can provide detailed and free information on how to execute an addiction intervention for someone you love, whether you want to do it in the traditional way or through modern methods such as CRAFT intervention.

    How much does rehab cost in Stratford-upon-Avon?

    Man looking at computer.

    Everyone has different needs when it comes to recovery, and each private rehab clinic has different pricing for its services.

    For example, high-end clinics in London, such as The Priory, cost up to £5,000 per week -but most clinics are much more affordable.

    The average daily cost of private rehab treatment in the UK is £495 per day, but some clinics cost around £150 per day.

    Is Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Stratford-Upon-Avon Available on the NHS?

    Young woman sitting on a sofa talking to a support worker.

    You can put your name down for a rehab spot through the NHS. However, there are usually long waiting lists for treatment, which will usually be ordered in terms of priority.

    On the other hand, getting private treatment through Rehab Recovery means you can begin treatment immediately once the financial side of things has been taken care of.

    How long does rehab last?

    Woman depressed

    An entire course of residential drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon usually lasts for about 28 days, which includes a seven to ten-day of alcohol or drug detox where it is necessary.

    If the detox portion of your treatment takes a little longer than usual, then your total time at rehab may be slightly longer than 28 days.

    NHS vs Private Addiction Treatment Services in Stratford-Upon-Avon


    Professionally supported drug and alcohol rehab is one of the best ways to recover from addiction.

    At Rehab Recovery, we only deal with private rehabs, meaning that treatment will always incur a cost that varies from clinic to clinic.

    However, there is always the option of trying to get treatment through the NHS, your local council, or another nonprofit organisation; this is known as ‘public rehab’.

    These clinics usually see people in order of priority and urgency on a case-by-case basis.

    Unfortunately, this means that most people will be on a waiting list for some time before starting their treatment.

    Nevertheless, these public clinics are held to a very high standard by various regulatory bodies, and you can get an excellent standard of treatment there.

    The only issue is that you will likely have to wait and also not have as much control over the type of clinic you receive treatment at as you would if going through us.

    Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment in Stratford-upon-Avon


    This is another thing to consider when looking at drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon – whether you would be best attending rehab as an on-site resident (inpatient) or staying at home for the duration of rehab (outpatient).

    Anyone withdrawing from heroin, prescription opiates, benzodiazepines, or heavy alcohol abuse will need a supervised detox and, therefore, need to be an inpatient on site.

    However, those who are trying to get off other drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, or whose alcohol abuse is less severe (<25 units per day) may be suitable for outpatient rehab.

    You would need to live pretty close to the clinic to be eligible for outpatient treatment, as travelling a long distance to rehab could result in complications with your care.

    You would also need to have a relatively stable home life, as it is important to minimise distractions and stress factors while in recovery.

    Alcohol Detox & Alcohol Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    Bottles in a window

    The perils of alcohol abuse are well known and can easily be observed on any high street at the weekend.

    However, that does not stop alcohol abuse from being widespread in the UK.

    Binge drinking is a massive part of popular culture in this country, which causes a lot of problems, including long-term alcohol addiction for many.

    If your drinking has become problematic, you should reach out for help as early as possible. The longer you stay in active addiction, the more potential damage can be caused to you and those around you.

    If your alcohol intake regularly exceeds 25 units per day, it would be best to attend rehab as an inpatient so you can have an adequately medicated and supervised alcohol detox.

    This will often involve the use of the prescription drug Librium, or order to keep the worst alcohol withdrawal symptoms under control, particularly delirium tremens and alcohol seizures.

    To get the help you need from an alcohol rehab in Stratford-Upon-Avon, call our admissions team on 0800 140 4690

    Home alcohol detox in Stratford-Upon-Avon

    Man making coffee in kitchen

    Some people with an alcohol problem may be able to detox in the comfort of their own home with the help of appropriate medication and guidance.

    This is called a home alcohol detox and is a service that we offer here at Rehab Recovery.

    It involves sending a medication called Librium out to you in the post with detailed instructions on use.

    However, this option is not for everyone. Those with a severe alcohol abuse problem (more than 25 units per day) will need to attend inpatient rehab for a monitored detox.

    This is one of the issues we can discuss with you during the telephone consultation stage.

    To find out if you’re suited to a home alcohol detox in Stratford-Upon-Avon, give our expert team a call today on 0800 140 4690

    Cocaine Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    Young woman distressed

    Cocaine is one of the most common illicit drugs in the UK.

    It gives the user an artificial feeling of confidence and sociability, making it popular in the nightlife scene.

    Although cocaine and even crack cocaine are both seen as ‘good time’ party drugs, users can find themselves experiencing isolation, addiction, financial ruin, and despair in very little time at all.

    This is because the drug is highly addictive and expensive while also making many users obnoxious, antisocial, paranoid, and generally unpleasant to be around.

    If this has been the case for you or someone you care about, the best way to treat it is by seeking treatment at a dedicated rehab facility.

    Although cocaine detox will not be necessary, these treatment services will focus on breaking your psychological cocaine addiction.

    Heroin Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    doctor and patient

    Although heroin use is highly taboo and stigmatised, it is still widespread in the UK, leading to many social and public health problems.

    Ac cycle of heroin addiction is challenging to stop, especially without medical assistance, due to the horrendous symptoms of heroin withdrawal.

    This can include muscle aches, intense anxiety, hypertension, and vomiting, among others.

    This is why it is so important to have medical supervision and the support of prescription drugs through your heroin detox.

    This is only possible at inpatient rehab, where you can be monitored and have your well-being looked after before moving on to a medication and therapy programme.

    Although heroin recovery is hard-won, it is possible.

    Cannabis Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    Man in blue shirt looking anxious

    Cannabis is the most used illicit drug in the UK, and relaxed attitudes to the drug mean that prosecutions for cannabis possession are relatively rare.

    However, you should not fall for the myths that cannabis is a ‘harmless’ substance. In fact, it can contribute to a number of chronic mental health conditions.

    Long-term cannabis use can often result in paranoia, social withdrawal, and the exacerbation of existing mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and OCD.

    Although there is no such thing as a cannabis detox, cannabis addiction is still best treated at an inpatient rehab facility, where a person can get a variety of help to achieve cannabis-free future in recovery.

    Rehab Recovery can help you to get treatment for cannabis addiction at a great drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon.

    Therapies Offered at Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon

    Family counselling session

    Addiction is complicated, and there are a lot of different factors to a person’s experience with substance abuse, from behavioural issues to trauma to medical history.

    That is why treating addiction requires a wide range of therapies and treatments, all of which can provide healing and understanding in their own particular way.

    Below we have laid out some of the different therapies and other activities you might experience in drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon.

    Cognitive behavioural therapy

    Young person in therapy

    The human brain can often form negative and otherwise unhelpful thought patterns and mental associations with very little basis in reality.

    Cognitive behavioural therapy aims to challenge and disrupt unhealthy thought patterns that have developed over the years and replace them with a more positive outlook.

    CBT has all kinds of uses, from treating gambling problems to managing an eating disorder. It is used a lot in the context of alcoholand drug addiction treatment services.

    Dialectical behavioural therapy

    Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) is one of the therapies that is often used to treat personality disorders such as EUPD/BPD.

    It is very effective at managing the symptoms of such disorders, particularly suicidal ideation and self-harm tendencies.

    BPD and other personality disorders are more commonly found in those with addiction than in the general population, so DBT can be very helpful in the context of rehab.

    Brief interventions

    Dealing with addiction and staying in recovery is a lifelong process, but a person’s focus should not just be on the long term – you also need to take the right steps day by day.

    Brief interventions, such as counselling or direction to other forms of short-term help, can be an important part of this process.

    Motivational interviewing

    Living in active addiction can be very detrimental to a person’s self-esteem and confidence and can lessen their motivation and enthusiasm for their future.

    Motivation interviewing (MI) is a counselling method that seeks to combat this problem by helping people in recovery set new goals and figure out how to work towards them.

    Holistic therapies at Rehab in Stratford-Upon-Avon


    Holistic therapies are often a valuable part of recovery treatment. At drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon, this could include any of the following:

    Holistic therapies and other activities like this can provide you with a sense of well-being and focus as you go through the rest of your treatment.

    You may even find that you develop a new hobby or lifelong interest from one of the activities you try at rehab. The important thing is to keep an open mind and try new things.

    To find out what holistic and alternative therapies are available at the various rehab centres in Stratford-Upon-Avon, give us a call on 0800 140 4690

    Group therapy


    Discussing your feelings with others can be a very healing thing to do, whether it is to a mental health professional or a sympathetic friend.

    Having a group of people who relate to your issues can be a wonderful thing, which is why group therapy is a big part of the programme at most rehab clinics.

    Although it can take a while for many people to open up, most people who go through rehab find that group therapy is a helpful part of their overall treatment.

    Individual therapy

    Rehab therapy is not all based in a group setting – you will also have plenty of individual sessions with counsellors and psychologists.

    This will give you an opportunity to deal with your underlying issues in a healthy way, with guidance from an experienced mental health professional.

    Family therapy

    Have you fallen out with your family over the course of your addiction? Do you feel that your substance abuse problems may have impacted your relationships with your family?

    If the answer is yes to either of those questions, you would likely benefit from family therapy sessions at some point in your rehab stay.

    These sessions would involve family members coming in – pending the consent of everyone involved – for sessions overseen by a mental health professional.

    Co-dependency treatment

    Many people who are in active addiction will develop relationships and friendships that are toxic, destructive, or otherwise detrimental to their overall wellness.

    There is no shame in this – there are many reasons for it happening, including survival instinct or a sense of safety.

    However, it is important that these relationships are identified and assessed.

    Co-dependency treatment will help you assess which of your relationships may be damaging to your recovery and how to set healthy boundaries for your own well-being.

    Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF)

    Group therapy session.

    The 12-steps are a series of guiding principles that formed the foundation of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935.

    The 12-step programme is also adapted to Narcotics Anonymous and other anonymous organisations, such as Cocaine Anonymous. The 12-steps are as follows:

    • We admitted we were powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable.
    • Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
    • Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
    • Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
    • Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
    • Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
    •  Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
    • Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
    • Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
    •  Continued to take personal inventory and, when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
    •  Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
    • Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and practice these principles in all our affairs.

    As you will probably be able to tell, there is a spiritual component to the 12-step approach, and this does not work for everyone.

    However, the programme is of vital importance to many people who are going through recovery, and as such, it is important that the programme can be integrated into their rehab care.

    This is known as 12-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF) and is available at your drug & alcohol rehab in Stratford-upon-Avon.

    To experience any of these effective treatments at a drug and alcohol rehab centre in Stratford-Upon-Avon, give our expert team a call today on 0800 140 4690

    Dual Diagnosis at Rehab in Stratford-Upon-Avon

    two women with their eyes closed facing each other

    Dual diagnosis is the process of identifying any mental health issues that a person in rehab might have and putting in place a treatment plan that works with the rest of their treatment.

    This can make it a lot easier for the person to manage their addiction on a daily basis, whether that’s through medication, talking therapies, or a combination thereof.

    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.

    Teenagers working together

    This means that you can go back to the clinic when appropriate, usually at weekends, to catch up with the professionals who have helped you and share your experiences of sobriety so far.

    SMART Recovery

    two people holding hands

    Instead, SMART offers evidence-based clinical treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy, addiction counselling, and psychodynamic therapy.

    Al-Anon Family Group meetings

    Group therapy session.

    Al-Anon is a group that provides support and comfort to the loved ones and families of people who are living with alcoholism, whether they are in active addiction or not.

    Many people find it helpful to share their feelings about what they have gone through in terms of the person’s addiction without worrying about being judged or hurting the person’s feelings.

    Like Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon is free to attend and has its own set of 12 guiding principles. Read more about Al-Anon on their official website.
