    Statistics about Drug and Alcohol Abuse in the UK

    Garden-in-rehab

    With drug and alcohol addiction on the rise, it’s important to understand the statistics.

    According to research carried out by the Home Office, approximately 9.4% of all adults aged 16 to 59 have consumed at least one drug over the last 12 months [1].

    Even more so, of those aged between 16 and 24, approximately 20.3% admitted to taking at least one drug in the past 12 months [1].

    With Covid-19 seeing an increase in drug and alcohol abuse, these statistics are not a shock to professionals.

    Additionally, some might argue that these statistics are only so high due to the normalisation and legalisation of cannabis in some countries. Many believe Cannabis to be a lesser harmful drug as it is classed as a Class B drug.

    However, the data shows that more and more people are also consuming and abusing more harmful drugs, with 8.7% of all adults aged between 16 and 24 admitting to having taken at least one Class A drug in the last year [1].

    When it comes to alcohol abuse, there were a total of 7,544 alcohol-specific deaths in the UK during the year 2019. Liver disease caused by alcohol abuse led to 77% of all of these deaths [2].

    According to research carried out by the Houses of Parliament in 2021, adults aged between 45 and 64 were the most likely to drink over the recommended weekly units of alcohol.

    Despite common stereotypes that younger people drink more than older people, those aged between 16 and 24 were actually the least likely to drink over the weekly recommended units of alcohol [2].

    The Disease Model of Addiction

    couple-in-black-and-white

    If you want to attend a rehab centre in the Newcastle area, then you should read up on the disease model of addiction.

    Importantly, the disease model of addiction believes that addiction is not a moral failing that you actively decide to abuse, but a disease. Therefore, the individual cannot be blamed for their addiction.

    By looking at addiction in this way, it highlights that the individual is not in control of their abuse or consumption. Rather, they are victims of a horrible disease.

    By following this model, individuals are able to start to view their addiction as a disease and health issue, just like they would with paranoia or depression. This is a much more healthy way of viewing addiction.

    If you know someone who’s struggling with an addiction, or if you’re struggling yourself, then start to use the disease model of addiction when viewing and talking about the addiction.

    Dual Diagnosis

    woman-drinking-coffee

    Despite many people viewing addiction as a moral failing, addiction is a disease. Even more so, addiction is simply a symptom of other psychiatric issues such as depression, anxiety or paranoia.

    If this is the case, then you will be diagnosed with a dual diagnosis, where you suffer from a co-occurring mental health issue alongside an addiction.

    Even for most mental health professionals, it’s difficult at times to tell if an individual developed an addiction first or a mental health issue.

    If you think that you are suffering from a dual diagnosis, then it’s important that you attend a drug or rehab centre in the Newcastle area and get help immediately.

    Start today by speaking to one of our team members at Rehab Recovery. Our team is able to help guide you through your recovery, and advise you on which treatment and rehab centres you should be attending, and for how long you should consider staying at rehab.

    It’s important to remember that if you suffer from a dual diagnosis and attend rehab, then you will always receive treatment for your addiction first, often in the form of detox.

    Once you have successfully completed your detox, then you will receive help and treatment in the form of therapy for your mental health issues.

    These treatment options include types of therapies also discussed below, including one to one therapy, group therapy, holistic therapy, CBT and motivational interviewing.

    Achieving Abstinence

    woman-meditating-on-bed

    For lots of people who are trying to achieve recovery, the idea of achieving abstinence seems out of reach.

    However, whilst receiving treatment at a rehab centre in the Newcastle area, achieving abstinence is top of the agenda.

    Abstinence can be defined as having self-control. By remaining abstinent, you are actively retraining yourself from taking part and indulging in a pleasurable activity, such as taking drugs or consuming alcohol.

    In order to achieve a full recovery, you must also achieve abstinence.

    Therefore, whilst at rehab, your aim will be to achieve abstinence from the addictive substance, rather than simply cutting down on your consumption.

    By achieving complete abstinence, you will receive a whole host of benefits. These include deeper and longer sleep, better memory and feeling less depressed, paranoid and anxious.

    The Benefits of Attending Residential Rehab Newcastle

    rehab-house-outside

    By attending a rehab centre in the Newcastle area, you will receive a whole host of benefits.

    Some of these benefits include:

    A Sense of Community

    By attending a residential rehab centre, you will gain a sense of community. You will be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are there to better themselves and their health.

    You will also be surrounded and cared for by medical professionals, who will also be able to offer you a level of support and care.

    For lots of people who attend residential rehab, the friends they make there become friends for life.

    This sense of community will motivate you to change, improve your health and recover in full.

    Better Structure

    By attending residential rehab, you will also be given a structure to live under whilst you are there.

    By receiving a helpful schedule of treatment, you will be able to remain focused and on track with your recovery.

    It is a fact that our brain loves habits, and at residential rehab, you will be given the opportunity to form healthy and long-lasting, positive habits.

    Relapse Prevention Planning

    Additionally, you will receive an in-depth relapse prevention plan. Throughout your time at residential rehab, a lot of your therapy and one to one meetings with professionals will be spent creating your relapse prevention plan.

    This will ensure that when you leave residential rehab, you will be strong enough positive mentally and physically to overcome any cravings you might get to avoid a relapse.

    Better Health

    Finally and most importantly, you will improve your health and your future. You will receive the very best treatment for drug or alcohol abuse in your area, both mentally and physically.

    Private Rehab vs. Council funded rehab treatment

    group-therapy

    Whilst lots of people in the UK think that people are able to attend an NHS rehab centre, that is simply not the case.

    People in the UK are able to attend NHS funded rehab, held within a private rehab centre.

    Due to recent cuts in the NHS, the NHS are only simply able to book beds in private rehab centres, rather than own entire NHS rehab centres themselves.

    Due to this, receiving NHS funded rehab is very difficult, places are very sparse and waiting lists very long. This is why it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons of both NHS funded rehab and private rehab.

    Cons of Private Rehab

    The biggest negative of private rehab is that it does cost a lot of money. For those who cannot afford these costs, the idea of private rehab seems out of reach.

    Read below to gain a better understanding of the costs of private rehab and the factors that affect this cost.

    Pros of Private Rehab

    Although private rehab might be expensive, there are many benefits to attending private rehab. You will not have to spend months on a waiting list, and you will also receive top of the range treatment.

    You will also receive treatment for any mental health conditions whilst at rehab, as well as a relapse prevention plan for when you leave.

    Cons of NHS Funded Rehab

    As previously discussed, attending NHS funded rehab simply means that you receive a bed or ‘spot’ in a private rehab centre that is funded by the NHS.

    Due to this, NHS funded rehab involves very long waiting lists, sometimes making people wait for months to receive their treatment.

    Additionally, if you suffer from a dual diagnosis then you might have to wait to receive your mental health treatment until after you leave the rehab centre.

    Pros of NHS Funded Rehab

    When it comes to NHS funded rehab, the individual will not have to pay for their treatment. This makes rehab accessible for lots of people who otherwise would never be able to afford to attend rehab.

    Additionally, you will most likely be placed in a local rehab centre, which means that you will remain close to friends or family members.

    Why Residential Rehab IS NOT for Everyone

    climbing-mountain-together

    Nevertheless, residential rehab is not for everyone. For example, the below list is often used by mental health professionals to determine whether or not someone is suitable for residential rehab, or if they would be better suited to outpatient rehab.

    • If you drink more than 30+ units of alcohol every day
    • If you have co-occurring mental health issues
    • If you have suicidal thoughts
    • If you would struggle to do an at-home detox
    • If you have tried by failed to remain sober after outpatient treatment
    • If you’ve ever acted violently whilst on the addictive substance
    • If you experience Delirium tremens (confusion)
    • If you experience Wernicke’s Encephalopathy (loss of muscle coordination, eye twitches)

    If you resonate with any of the above factors, then you might be deemed a high-risk individual and client.

    Additionally, the DSM-IV-TR Diagnostic Criteria is also used by medical professionals to determine if an individual is ready or suitable to attend residential rehab [3].

    The criteria are split into two categories, being substance abuse and substance dependence, which includes [3]:

    • Using the addictive substance despite understanding the damage it is doing
    • Going out of your way to getting hold of the drug
    • If you’ve tried to quit in the past but failed
    • If you consume a large amount of the addictive substance
    • If you frequently cancel your plans to abuse the drug
    • If you have noticed an increase in intolerance
    • If you continue to consume the drug or substance in an attempt to avoid facing withdrawal symptoms

    The Alternatives to Going to Rehab

    group-therapy-chairs

    Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

    If you don’t want to attend residential rehab, then you should consider attending a group, or self-help meetings such as the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or Narcotics Anonymous.

    By attending these groups, you will work towards the 12 steps of recovery, whilst receiving helpful tips and advice on your recovery, the opportunity to share your story and journey, and the chance to meet like-minded individuals who are going through the same as you.

    SMART Recovery

    Alternatively, you can opt for a SMART Recovery. This is a form of treatment where the individual decides whether or not they have a problem and finds the motivation within themselves to improve their situation and recover.

    Home Detox

    Alternatively, for those who do not suffer from a severe addiction, there is the option of home detox.

    This is where an individual will receive medication through the post and treatment over the phone from healthcare professionals.

    Whilst a home detox can be very convenient for some, for others it is simply not an option. For example, some people might suffer from triggers at home, which would make their home detox very stressful and hard.

    Al-Anon Family Group meetings

    If you think that your family would also benefit from attending some form of treatment or therapy with you, then you should consider Al-Anon family therapy.

    This is where you bring your family along with you to a session so that they can also receive any treatment, advice or help to aid your recovery.

    Outpatient treatment via a local Drug & Alcohol team Newcastle

    Finally, if you don’t think inpatient treatment is for you, then you should consider outpatient treatment.

    This is where you are able to attend the rehab centre on a daily basis, before returning back home to continue your normal, day to day life.

    Outpatient treatment is a great treatment option for those who possibly could not cope in residential rehab, or for those who have a lot of responsibility at home such as a family.

    The Admissions Process in Newcastle

    group-therapy-instruction

    When it comes to being admitted to a rehab centre in the Newcastle area, healthcare professionals turn to a diagnostic criteria tool called the ASAM.

    The ASAM criteria help professionals assess whether or not an individual is suitable to enter a rehab centre, and when they get there what type of treatment they will need [4].

    A professional will often ask you a series of questions at the start of the admissions process which will help them determine the above. These questions fit into the 6 dimensions listed below.

    Dimension 1 – Intoxication / Withdrawal

    Healthcare professionals will assess how serious your addiction is, your addiction history and whether or not you’ve tried to withdraw in the past.

    This helps paint a picture of your addiction so that we can work out the very best ways to help.

    Dimension 2 – Medical Complications

    Professionals will also need to gain an understanding of your previous and current physical health issues.

    This is very important when to consider when issuing treatment and medication, and also very important to consider when an individual is about to detox from a drug or substance.

    Dimension 3 – Behavioural or Psychological Complications

    In addition to your physical health, your psychological health will also be assessed during the admissions process.

    This is in order to determine if any dual diagnosis exists, whilst also helpful when determining what kind of treatments will be needed.

    Dimension 4 – Readiness to Change

    The individual’s readiness to change will also be assessed. The individual’s commitment to change is one of the most important factors, as this will play a major role in whether or not someone will successfully recover.

    Dimension 5 – Relapse Potential

    The team will also assess whether or not the individual has relapsed in the past, and how likely it will be that the individual will relapse in the future.

    Dimension 6 – Recovery Environment

    Your home environment will also be assessed. This is very important when it comes to an individual’s recovery.

    Some individuals might be surrounded by a house full of unhelpful comments and triggers.

    It’s important that you are open and honest at this stage, as assessing your home environment will determine your recovery success.

    Whilst assessing these six dimensions, the team will determine whether or not you have a mild, moderate or severe addiction and act accordingly [4].

    Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs)

    writing-in-journal

    During the admissions process, professionals also use an AUDIT. This stands for Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test and is used to assess the seriousness of an individual’s addiction.

    The test involves a series of questions, to which the individual can respond in the five following ways:

    • Never
    • Every month or less
    • 2 – 4 times every month
    • 2-3 times every week
    • 4 or more times every week

    The questions are categorized into three categories including consumption, dependency and consequences.

    Questions around the individual’s consumption include:

    • How many times a week do you drink?
    • How many units do you drink every week?
    • How often do you drink more than 6 units if you’re a female and 8 units if you’re a male at any one time?

    The questions around your dependency involve:

    • How often over the last 12 months have you not been able to stop yourself from drinking?
    • How many times over the last year have you not kept to your responsibilities?
    • How often in the last 12 months have you struggled to get out of bed in the morning?

    The last questions involving the consequences of your addiction include:

    • How often over the last 12 months have you felt guilt or regret due to your addiction?
    • How often over the last 12 months have you struggled to remember the night or day before due to being drunk?
    • Have you ever hurt yourself or someone else due to drinking or drugs?
    • Has anyone ever told you that they are worried about your addiction?

    Once you have answered all the above questions, the team will add up your scores. If you score more than 13 points, then you are believed to be dependent on the substance [4].

    When is a Professional Intervention Needed?

    group-fist-bumping

    If your loved one is struggling with an addiction, then you might be wondering whether or not you should consider an intervention.

    Although part of you may want and hope that the individual will try and seek treatment themselves, sometimes they need a little helpful push.

    By holding an intervention, you will finally be getting the helpful, professional and organised help that your loved one needs.

    An intervention is essentially a planning meeting where you will gather friends and family members of the individual suffering and help them understand that they need help.

    During an intervention, you will be able to guide the individual on their treatment options, as well as the rehab centres in their area.

    It may also be a good idea to hire an intervention specialist to help guide you through the process.

    By holding an intervention, the individual will hopefully understand that they need help, and know exactly where to get it.

    They will also be reminded of the love and support that you all have for them.

    If you want to hold an intervention for someone, then it might be worth looking up the CRAFT approach to interventions.

    CRAFT is a fantastic tool and resource for those who want to help an individual overcome their addiction.

    CRAFT stands for Community Reinforcement and Family Training [5]. It highlights the benefits of positive reinforcement and shows how by doing so you can help the sufferer.

    How Much Does Rehab Cost in Newcastle?

    rehabs-living-room

    If you’re hoping to receive treatment at a private rehab centre for a drug or alcohol addiction in the Newcastle area, then you need to carefully consider the associated costs.

    There is no doubt that private rehab is expensive. However, the cost of private rehab can differ depending on what type of rehab centre it is, how long you stay and whether or not you decide to opt for a private or shared room.

    As a guide, a short 10-day stay is approximately £3,000 – £6,000 for a private room. However, a shared room is approximately £2,000 – £4,000.

    Nevertheless, the longer you decide to stay the more expensive rehab gets. A longer, 28-day stay costs approximately £8,000 – £12,000 for a single room. A shared room is slightly cheaper at £6,000.

    Understandably, for lots of people the idea of paying this much for rehab, despite how life-changing it might be, is just out of the question.

    If this is the case, then you might want to consider a home detox, which is considerably cheaper at approximately £1,500.

    What is a Detox, and Do I Need One?

    woman-doing-yoga

    A detox involves abstaining from an addictive substance so that you can finally rid your body of it, in the hope that this will put a stop to any cravings.

    It’s important to remember that detox is an absolute must if you hope to achieve abstinence and recovery.

    If you’re struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, then you have most likely heard of the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that a detox brings.

    These symptoms include sickness, shakes, feeling anxious, paranoid or irritable. If these symptoms go unmanaged, then they might result in dangerous consequences.

    Due to this, it’s incredibly important that any attempt at detox is completed in a safe and stable environment, such as a rehab centre.

    By doing so, you will receive medication, help and 24/7 support from professionals to make sure that your detox is a safe one.

    How Long Does Rehab Usually Last?

    jumping-at-sunset

    How long you will need to stay in rehab will depend on a series of factors such as how severe the addiction is, what you are addicted to, and what kind of withdrawal symptoms you have experienced.

    It’s also important to remember that not all addiction requires a detox. Some substances do not require a medical, physical detox whereas some do. This naturally affects how long you will need to stay in rehab for.

    Nevertheless, there is usually a minimum stay of 7 days at most rehab centres. The average time spent in rehab is approximately 28 days.
