    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe

    Drug and alcohol rehab is a place for people to receive treatment for any type of addiction, whether behavioural or substance-based.

    It is a safe place that allows individuals to take a break from their responsibilities and put all their energy into recovering from their drug addiction.

    Different rehabs follow different methods, but most facilities in the UK support the abstinence approach. This means the staff believe that addiction is not the patient’s fault, and therefore they do not need to be punished but taught how to cope.

    This type of treatment centre will have personalised treatment plans for patients, and most of these plans include detox, therapy, and aftercare.

    The majority of patients will choose to stay at the centre for a set amount of time, but others will stay at home and travel to the treatment location every day.

    Is Drug & Alcohol Rehab Different in Crewe?


    As there are different types of treatment centre in the UK, there are bound to be a wide range of treatment centres in Crewe. However, the facilities that offer an abstinence-based approach in the UK are all very similar, so you do not get a different deal if you live in Crewe.

    This means that you will most likely get a detox, therapy, and aftercare at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe. (1) The facility is also likely to be located in a quiet area, as is the case with most treatment centres in the UK.

    However, there are some personal touches at each drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, which is why we encourage you to reflect on what you like and dislike about rehab, and try to settle on some must-haves that you can pass on to our referral team.

    One example of a must-have for some patients is specific sports facilities, such as tennis courts. If you are an avid tennis player, it would be great for you to be able to practise tennis at rehab, as it would help you to wind down at the end of a stressful day.

    It would also be a great way to release any negative energy relating to your addiction and/or recovery.

    If you are unsure of the different personal touches that may be available at a drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, we would be more than happy to give you some ideas in an initial telephone consultation on 0800 088 66 86.

    Do I Have to Stay at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe For 28 Days?

    No, you do not have to stay at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe for 28 days. Sometimes, your personalised plan does not require you to be there for 28 days. This is often the case when a patient is addicted to a drug that does not have physical side effects, and therefore they do not need to detox.

    Other patients make the decision to stay for a shorter time period because they do not want to leave home for a full 28 days. This may be because they have a young family, their addiction is mild, or they do not want to have therapy at a residential rehab.

    These patients cannot be forced to stay for the average length of time, and it is better for them to attend rehab for a short period of time than not at all. However, except in very specific circumstances, it is best to commit to 28 days at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe.

    It may be harder work, to begin with, but this will pay off as people who complete full recovery programmes are more likely to maintain sobriety.

    You may even decide to extend your stay if you feel as though you would benefit from more inpatient therapy, and this can be arranged by speaking to staff before your time at rehab is over.

    If you feel overwhelmed by the concept of 28 days but you understand that it would be more beneficial, you may want to consider committing to 28 days as an outpatient. This would allow you to have the same treatment, but you would get to rest in your own home each evening.

    If you choose to go ahead with outpatient treatment, please be aware that it is not on the same level as drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, so people with a severe addiction should avoid it.

    It will also be vital that you have support at home, and that you are not trying to take on lots of responsibility while you recover (i.e., childcare or work).

    Can People Visit Me at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe?

    If you want people to be able to visit you at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, this is definitely something we can make happen for you. Plenty of treatment centres in Crewe arrange regular family visits, which are usually on the same day each week.

    Family visits can be very helpful for some patients, as it stops them from being too homesick, which could interfere with their motivation to recover at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe.

    Family members can also offer plenty of love and encouragement, which can help patients who are struggling with low mood.

    However, family visits are not always positive, which is why certain treatment centres actually prohibit them. Families can bring in the drama that makes the patient more anxious, they can use enabling language or behaviour on their visits, and they can blame the patient, which may increase their desire to return to their lifestyle of drug or alcohol addiction.

    If you do choose a rehab facility that allows family visits, keep all of this in mind. Only invite people who have demonstrated that they are proud of you for getting help, and they are willing to support your sobriety.

    On the other hand, if your family is difficult, you may decide to have family therapy with them. As a trained therapist would be present, there would not be as much concern surrounding enabling or drama, as the therapist would be able to flag this behaviour and bring it to the family’s attention.

    What Facilities are at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe?


    Before you arrange a start date with a drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, we will tell you about their facilities, so that you can decide whether you are happy with the environment you will be living in.

    This means that we cannot tell you the facilities that are available in every rehab in Crewe, as they are different in each centre.

    Some common facilities you will find are common rooms, private rooms with ensuites, shared rooms, cafeterias, housekeeping, gardens, and gyms.

    It is a common misconception that there is no free time at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe, so don’t worry about not having time to engage with the excellent facilities. There will be downtime incorporated into each day, so you will have plenty of time to rest, exercise, and socialise.

    Who is Employed at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe?

    As detoxing is part of most people’s rehab stay, there is always a team of doctors and nurses present at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe. They take care of patients throughout the detox, prescribe medication, and monitor the physical and mental health of people staying at rehab.

    Therapists are of course an essential part of rehab, as most of the week is taken up by therapy sessions. Most rehab centres in Crewe will employ therapists with different styles, so you may get professionals trained in psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, holistic therapies, and other common types of therapy.

    Other important job titles at private clinics for addiction include psychiatrist and psychologist.

    They will diagnose patients with physical or mental issues, which is very important as it influences the treatment they receive, and it may result in the reduction of symptoms that have been affecting patients for a long time.

    The hospitality staff have a very important role, as they ensure patients are as comfortable as possible. This team includes the cooks who prepare three meals a day and the housekeeping staff who clean patients’ rooms.

    Finally, the administrative staff work to ensure each patient has an established treatment plan, and an aftercare plan ready for when they leave.

    Patients can see the administrative team if they have any issues with their treatment plan, payment, length of stay, or any other practical problem at drug and alcohol rehab in Crewe.

    Detoxing at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe

    As you will now know, detoxing is very common at rehab in Crewe. It is offered to most patients, as most people enter rehab with a substance use issue involving a physically addictive drug.

    The purpose of detoxing is to stop the patient from experiencing physical symptoms of addiction and therefore make the patient as physically healthy as possible. The drug is slowly withdrawn from their body, which allows them to recover from the drug’s influence slowly, rather than going into shock.

    Medication is used to help with this withdrawal. Some common medications used during the detox include antipsychotics, anti-anxiety drugs, and drugs that prevent seizures.

    If the patient has a known physical condition alongside their addiction, they may receive additional medication to prevent them from reacting badly to the detox.

    The medical detox phase at private rehab last 3-10 days from start to finish. However, some patients will , unfortunately, continue to experience symptoms for long after this, particularly if their addiction has been around for a long time, and they had been using the substance in high doses on a regular basis.

    Therapy at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe


    We have mentioned that rehabs in Crewe employ therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists. This should tell you that the mental health of patients is taken very seriously at rehab, and this mainly manifests in regular therapy sessions.

    Each patient has a different experience with therapy, as their therapy sessions are determined by their personal treatment plan. However, therapy tends to be flexible at rehab, so you get to experience different styles of therapy, with different professionals.

    As well as this, you can try out therapy in different settings, i.e., in groups, with your family, and on your own.

    The great thing about therapy at rehab in Crewe is that you do not have to leave it behind when you finish treatment. Most of the time, you will be allowed to incorporate it into your comprehensive aftercare plan.

    If you do not live near Crewe, this may not be possible, but you could still use your experience of therapy at rehab to help you choose the right therapist and therapy technique for you. You could also look for local Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

    Aftercare at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe

    Support group

    Aftercare is something that you will always be entitled to if you get a referral to rehab with Rehab Recovery. Patients are very vulnerable when they first leave rehab, and aftercare plans are a great form of relapse prevention, given that they offer extended support for 12 months.

    Some patients are tempted to discard the aftercare as they want to leave their stressful rehab stay in the past. However, this is very likely to result in relapse, so we do not recommend it. What’s more, even if you try to avoid your issues, they do not disappear, so this would only cause further long-term pain.

    If you work on your addiction from the moment you enter rehab, and continue to work on it every day of your life, you will be more stable and more content overall.

    Please remember that you will be much more equipped to stay sober after rehab, so it may be difficult to imagine staying sober forever currently, but this is usually not the case when you have had 28 days’ worth of detoxing and therapy.

    Making the Decision to Attend Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Crewe

    No one else can make the decision to attend rehab for you. It is something you have to decide yourself, based on whether you need to go to rehab, and whether you are ready to go to rehab.

    We are here to help you ponder these two questions.

    1. Do I need to go to rehab in Crewe?

    If you have a substance use problem, it would be wise to go to rehab in Crewe. You can use diagnostic tools to figure this out, such as the ASAM criteria or the AUDITs test. They will list potential symptoms that you are likely to identify with if you have a substance use problem.

    Another option would be to contact us and speak to an addiction specialist about your relationship with drugs, alcohol, or a particular behaviour e.g., eating, gaming, or gambling. We will be able to advise you on whether rehab in Crewe is necessary for you.

    Don’t worry about being pushed to go to rehab, as we will not recommend it if it appears you do not need it. However, given that we are primarily a rehab referral service, most people that reach out to us do have substance use problems that they have been concealing and/or denying for a long time.

    2. Am I ready to go to rehab in Crewe?

    If you have concluded that you do need to go to rehab in Crewe, the next thing to consider is whether you are ready. Some patients expect us to rush them to attend rehab, as we promote its long-term benefits for people from all walks of life.

    Yet, we are wary of doing this as we know it must be the patient’s own decision to get treatment, and not ours. All that will happen if someone gets treatment before they are ready is that they will not put their full effort into recovering, and they will most likely relapse as soon as they emerge from rehab (that is if they complete treatment in the first place).

    There is no guidebook when it comes to getting ready for rehab, but some top tips we have are:

    • Speak to your loved ones about how your addiction issue looks to them, and how it is impacting them
    • Read up on the dangerous consequences of addiction, both physical and mental (2)
    • Research the benefits of abstinence treatment at rehab in Crewe
    • Speak to an addiction specialist
    • Get in touch with people who are recovering from addiction and ask about their experiences
