    What You Need to Know about Alcohol Addiction

    Man drinking

    If you have an alcohol addiction, then the best place to get treatment is at an alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe. Addiction and dependency are extremely complex conditions that require specialist and professional treatment in order to both quit and develop the skills required to maintain sobriety.

    Alcohol affects the balance of the GABA amino acid in the brain. This disrupts emotional regulation and if a person is a heavy and frequent drinker, an upset in the balance of GABA can lead to seizures.

    At their worst, these can be fatal. This is why a clinically supervised alcohol detox is essential.

    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Wythenshawe

    You can get rehab treatment in Wythenshawe. A private drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe clinic provides you with a range of treatments that are known to be the best in relation to tackling addiction.

    At rehab you get the following:

    • An initial assessment so that staff understand you, your addiction, and life better.
    • A tailored treatment programme developed from the assessment (hence it being important to be honest when answering questions).
    • 24-hour care. This is useful especially if you get cravings during the night. Also, this offers clinical care if withdrawal symptoms are particularly distressing.
    • A team of specialist staff who are qualified in understanding addiction from a neurological and biological perspective, but also experienced staff who have worked in the field for years, or may have experienced addiction in the past themselves.
    • A healthy diet cooked for by in-house chefs who understand the essential vitamins and nutrients you need to support your body to heal.
    • Clinically overseen detoxes for people who have dependencies on alcohol, heroin, or benzodiazepines.
    • A range of psychological and holistic therapies. This is essential for recovery. This is where you come to understand addiction from a social, neurological and theoretical viewpoint. It’s where you learn how to alter your thinking and behaviours. There are numerous sessions that provide you with the skills to manage cravings and triggers.

    The Financial Cost of a Private Clinic in Wythenshawe


    Going to a drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe comes with a cost. This is to cover the following:

    • Accommodation
    • Food
    • Therapies
    • Staff
    • Resources
    • Medication

    There are, as there are with most things in life, different options when it comes to going to a rehab clinic. A rehab clinic might offer a luxury experience and come in at around £10,000 a week.

    Another rehab with more budget options might come in at around £1,000 a week.

    It can be helpful to speak to the Rehab Recovery team about this. We work with clinics throughout the country and as such have an understanding of their specialities. We also work with people who have addictions throughout the UK matching them to the most appropriate clinic.

    A conversation with us can clear up what’s available to you within your budget and in relation to your treatment requirements.

    Wythenshawe local funding for private treatment

    In some cases, people are offered a funded drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe placement at a private clinic. This is a provision for those from low-income backgrounds.

    In order to get the funding you must be in regular contact with NHS drug and alcohol services doing everything you can already to try and become sober.

    At this point, you and your substance misuse worker from the NHS clinic would apply to Wythenshawe Council for the funded place. It’s then up to the Council to decide who – from a list of applications – will be granted the funded treatment.

    If successful, you’ll then go on a waiting list and wait for a space to come up (this can take a couple of months).

    The Duration of Your Rehab Treatment

    Research has suggested that it takes around a month to develop a new habit. Interestingly, this happens to be the same amount of time recommended for a rehab stay.

    This gives you around a week to get through the worst of withdrawal and then another 3 weeks to focus on the mental and emotional aspects of healing.

    Some people might stay for an additional couple of weeks if their situation is particularly complex, or if for instance, they have mental health issues alongside the addiction.

    Wythenshawe: Private vs. NHS Care


    There are different places you can go for addiction treatment.

    As with most towns and cities in the UK, the two main options are:

    1. NHS drug and alcohol services. These support people in all stages of change, whether the person is ready to quit or not. There are harm reduction services, needle exchanges, and weekly group sessions that follow the 12 Step and SMART recovery guidelines.
    2. A private drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe. This is a clinic that supports people who are at the stage where they are committed to becoming sober and remaining so. Each day therapies and activities take place all focused on developing knowledge and skills on how to manage sobriety long-term.

    Inpatient & Outpatient Services in Wythenshawe

    Alcohol and drug addiction can be treated through either inpatient (residential) services or outpatient services.

    Inpatient is what you become when you stay at a clinic for a period of time to undergo treatment. This is what private care offers.

    Outpatient services are how the NHS clinics run, so you go to them as and when you have an appointment or a group to attend.

    For moderate to severe addictions, inpatient care is the most effective option for achieving long-lasting success in recovery.

    For more information about drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe, please contact us today at 0800 088 66 86.

    Alternative Support Services in Wythenshawe

    Other places that you can go for support around addiction include:

    • Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. 12 Step groups happen in-person in various locations as well as online. Here you get peer-led support and develop a sense of a higher power to drive your recovery.
    • SMART groups provide a space where you learn how to approach recovery practically. Identifying steps that can help you to remain focused on healing each day.
    • Another form of professional addiction treatment is home detox. A doctor would oversee a prescription for a medication that would support you to wean off a substance such as alcohol or heroin while remaining at home. To gain this type of treatment, patients are assessed first.

    Alcohol Detox & Rehab in Wythenshawe

    It’s really important if you have an alcohol addiction to go to rehab for both an alcohol detox as well as for therapies. Alcohol seriously alters how brain chemistry works and how bodily systems function.

    Withdrawal symptoms include:

    • Profuse sweating
    • Fluctuations in temperatures
    • Dizziness and tremors
    • Confusion and paranoia
    • Hallucinations
    • Sickness and diarrhoea
    • Seizures

    At an alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe, you have a ten-day detox where Librium might be prescribed to wean you off the drink carefully. At the end of the period, you’ll be substance free.

    After this, you’ll begin various therapies and holistic treatments.

    This will be a time when you develop new self-understanding. You’ll think about your past and present and figure out what needs to happen now for a change to last in the future. With support from others, you’ll develop goals and the skills needed to reach them.

    Rehab for Cocaine in Wythenshawe


    If you’ve developed a cocaine or crack addiction that has changed your daily lifestyle, is affecting relationships and ruining your health and mental focus, then treatment at drug rehab will help you the most.

    Withdrawal symptoms are largely psychological but with some physiological effects as your body readjusts:s

    • Severe anxiety
    • Seriously low mood and motivation
    • Panic and distress
    • Fluctuations in temperature
    • Loss of appetite
    • Insomnia

    Long-term cocaine and crack use lead to serious health implications. Not only does cocaine more than double your risk of cancer, but crack is also known to lead to “crack lung”.

    It’s a substance, though, that on starting out often just seems a “bit of fun”. Sadly, for those who become addicted, it destroys their lives and relationships.

    Rehab treatment will have a heavy focus on identifying automatic and unhealthy thoughts that subconsciously drive your behaviour. Therapists will teach you how to alter your internal world so that you can create a healthy one that drives your life going forward.

    Rehab for Heroin in Wythenshawe

    It’s likely if you use heroin that you’ll have developed physical dependence. This means that, as with alcohol, your withdrawal will present with really uncomfortable physical effects as well as psychological ones.

    These are notoriously hard to manage for the heroin user.

    Symptoms of withdrawal include:

    • Sickness and diarrhoea
    • Extreme anxiety, feelings of overwhelm and paranoia
    • Hallucinations and confusion
    • Runny nose
    • Severe pain in the muscles and bones
    • Loss of sleep and appetite

    At a private drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe, you’ll spend a lot of time sharing with peers. This is really valuable in offering you a space to learn and self-reflect with the new perspectives of people who understand the illness you’re living with.

    As well as this, you’ll have regular counselling. This is useful in giving you space to discover the things that developed the addiction and in building the self-belief in being able to heal and rebuild relationships.

    Rehab for Cannabis in Wythenshawe


    If your drug addiction is to cannabis you can go to rehab. While many don’t think of cannabis as creating a serious addiction, it really is dependent on who the individual is and how it’s affected them.

    Cannabis has some medicinal properties and is increasingly used in the medical field. This leads many people to think it can be used safely through a “self-medicating” approach.

    The problem with this, however, is that illegal strains of THC cannabis are incredibly strong and being illegal in the UK, are unregulated.

    Regular cannabis use can lead to the following:

    • Anxiety, paranoia, and panic attacks
    • Low mood
    • Low motivation and reduced interest in usual activities
    • Impaired memory
    • Impaired sleep
    • Reduction in appetite
    • Schizophrenia and psychosis

    At a rehab clinic, you’ll have a programme that will focus on rebuilding your mental, physical and emotional health. There are various topic-led conversations where you’ll learn about how cannabis impacts the body as well as therapies that unpick the illness.

    Time is also spent on honouring the need to rest and relax through nurturing activities that help to provide healthy coping mechanisms.

    Your Treatment Programme at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Wythenshawe

    At a drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe, your treatment programme will include a variety of the following:

    • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapy focuses on cognitive restructuring. It reveals how your behaviour is triggered by thoughts that have become automatic because of neurological pathways in the brain. A therapist teaches you how to alter what’s going on at a cognitive level in order to change behaviours.
    • Motivational interviewing is a therapy that was developed especially to treat alcohol and drug addiction. It supports people to explore the reasons they enjoy or use substances in an honest way. This is an important part of recovery. Many people, while wanting to quit, experience feelings of loss in the process. It’s also the therapy that helps you to identify the deep motivations for wanting to change.
    • In addiction treatment counselling is one of the most-used approaches to support people. It’s where you’re held in a space that encourages self-awareness. It’s a space that facilitates you to identify what you need to do to support yourself. You might learn how to develop boundaries, how to communicate more effectively, and why you act the way you do because of how you’ve been affected by the past.
    • Group sessions occur every day and include both 12 Step and SMART recovery formats. You take responsibility for your addiction through sharing with others and recognising that while you’ve developed this illness, it’s up to you now to be empowered and focused on recovery.
    • Holistic therapies include mindfulness, meditation, art therapy, music therapy, equine therapy, ear acupuncture, reiki, yoga, and tai chi.

    Mental Health & Addiction: Dual Diagnosis

    Many people who enter rehab will discover that they have a dual diagnosis. This is when a person has both an addiction as well as another mental health condition.

    It’s incredibly common. Many people use alcohol and drugs to try and lift their mood, especially if they suffer from anxiety or depression. Of course, this can lead to addiction.

    On the flip side of that, people who use substances regularly can develop mental health issues because of how it affects brain chemistry and hormonal balance.

    Rehab clinics provide treatments for both. That being said, the focus will be on addiction.

    Relapse Prevention Planning at Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Wythenshawe

    During your stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Wythenshawe, staff will discuss relapse with you. This is essential in recovery and planning for the future.

    It’s understandable that many people have experienced relapses during their recovery. It’s not a sign of failure. Actually, when you relapse, if you manage yourself well afterwards then it can go on to lead to great success in the recovery journey.

    Staff will develop a relapse prevention plan with you. It will include information such as grounding techniques and tools to manage triggers.

    There will be contact numbers for people and organisations you can go to for support at difficult moments. There will also be guidance on what to do if you experience relapse.
