Using The Disease Model of Addiction At Drug & Alcohol Rehab In West Midlands
Addiction is a disease. We follow the Disease Model of Addiction at our drug and alcohol rehab in West Midlands. This means we remove the idea that you have chosen addiction or have failed by using addictive substances.
Instead, we treat your addiction as we would any other health complaint. Without any stigma, shame or blame.
Addiction can be summed up in medical terms as a brain disorder, because it involves functional changes to brain circuits involved in reward, stress, and self-control.‘(1)
In fact, throughout years of addiction, your brain structure, pathways, and chemical makeup will be altered. This creates the cycle of addiction which is what makes addiction so hard to break free from.
Cravings, compulsions, continued substance abuse and being out of control are the four C’s that make up the cycle of addiction.

What Should I Expect From Drug and Alcohol Rehab in West Midlands?
We welcome anyone aged 18 or above to our drug and alcohol rehab in West Midlands. All we need to do to get started is carry out our brief first assessment.
By carrying out this assessment at first contact we can fully understand your addiction, needs and requirements from the offset.
After we have had the time to talk with you and understand your situation we can arrange for you to begin your supervised medical detox.
The medical detox simply means you will detox from drugs or alcohol under the supervision of a medical team, who can prescribe any medication needed to keep you safe.
This process normally takes seven to ten days. After this time, we can expect your body to have detoxed from your substance, meaning it’s no longer present in your system.

The sudden change within your body can result in side effects ranging from mild to severe. This is when our medical team can step in to make sure you are safe and as comfortable as possible.
