    The disease model of addiction


    Some people who have not been through addiction refer to substance abuse and addiction as a ‘choice’ or a selfish action. This can come from a place of judgement, projection, or just plain ignorance.

    The reality is that addiction is considered to be a disease with both physical and mental symptoms. There is no shame in having an addiction, but it does not to be treated and managed as soon as possible.

    Rehab Recovery provides a confidential judgment-free helpline for anyone suffering from addiction. We can help you to make sense of your treatment options, and if you are ready, help you to find help at a suitable drug & alcohol rehab in Essex.

    Dual diagnosis at rehab


    Addiction does not exist in a vacuum – there are normally a number of other mental health conditions happening at the same time.

    This could be a life-limiting personality disorder such as BPD, or a debilitating anxiety disorder. Any condition like this can make an addiction much more difficult to manage, and vice versa.

    This is the purpose of dual diagnosis at rehab – finding out, with the help of professionals, whether there are any other aggravating mental health conditions at play.

    If there are, you will be able to have them diagnosed, assessed, and treated accordingly, which could make your addiction much easier to deal with going forward.

    This may include the use of therapy, medications, or likely both – the important thing is to be able to get that condition under control.

    Why the abstinence model works best


    We should be clear upfront that the vast majority of rehab clinics operate within the abstinence model of recovery – in other words, the end goal of treatment is to abstain from the substance for life.

    Some people who have treated their addiction and been through rehab may eventually try to incorporate alcohol or drug use back into their life, perhaps starting with moderation, on an occasional basis.

    Unfortunately, for the vast majority of people, this will end up with the person being back in a full-blown addiction. This is why the abstinence model is the ideal choice.

    With the abstinence model of recovery, there is no grey area in this respect – either you are using, or you are not. This keeps things simple and does leave the door open for substance abuse to come back into your life.

    Private Rehab vs. Public rehab


    At Rehab Recovery, the clinics that we refer to are all private clinics, meaning that you will incur a financial cost for your treatment.

    There are a lot of clinics that offer treatment places through the NHS and other public organisations, meaning that treatment is free for the service user.

    Obviously, the main advantage of getting treatment at a public-funded rehab is that you will not have to pay for treatment. However, there are other factors to consider.

    Going through public services means that you will probably not have as much ay or control over the clinic that you go to, or the type of treatment that you receive.

    It also means that you may have to wait on a waiting list for months before beginning your treatment. This is far from ideal if you have a moderate-to-severe substance abuse disorder.

    If you were to go through private rehab, you would be able to start treatment straight away, which can be a huge relief for someone in the grips of addiction. Going private also means that you have more say over where you get your treatment, and what kind of clinic you go to.

    Overall, it’s fair to say that if you can afford to go private, you should. However, we are still happy to offer free help and advice if you would like to pursue public-funded rehab.

    Outpatient rehab in Essex


    Outpatient rehab is a treatment option where the person stays at home during the evenings and nights and attends their rehab clinics during the day.

    A lot of people find this option attractive, as it is more affordable and perhaps less disruptive to their normal everyday life.

    However, outpatient treatment is not right for everyone, especially those who:

    • Suffer from significant chronic mental health problems
    • Have tried and failed to get sober through outpatient rehab and/or home detox in the past
    • Are known to commit violence or aggressive acts against loved ones when intoxicated
    • Have experienced Delirium tremens or alcoholic seizures
    • Suffer from Wernicke’s encephalopathy

    If any of the above is applicable to you, it is likely that you would identify as a high-risk patient, and therefore would not be a suitable candidate for outpatient care.

    The alternatives to going to rehab


    If you can’t go to private rehab at the moment, because of affordability or any other factors, there are still a range of treatment options available to you.

    In the sections below, we have listed a number of addiction resources that are either cheap or much more affordable than rehab. Availability may vary depending on your location.

    Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

    Alcoholics Anonymous offers comfort and support for anyone going through addiction and has its own 12-step programme that is intended to get people into recovery.

    Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) adopts a spiritual approach to addiction recovery, which is mirrored in the organisation Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

    Both of these groups run regular group meetings in most areas of the UK, including here in Essex. You can search ’12 step Essex’ to find out about the nearest meeting to you.

    SMART Recovery

    SMART Recovery has been operating since the 1990s, providing a clinical alternative to groups like Alcohol Anonymous.

    Rather than treating addiction as a spiritual condition, SMART focuses on evidence-based techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy and other forms of behaviour management.

    SMART is a global organisation, and they have a lot of resources available to those in the UK. Search ‘SMART Recovery’ for further information.

    Home detox

    If you are looking to detox from alcohol, it is possible that we may be able to arrange for you to do so from home, with guidance and medication sent to you via post.

    This is only available to persons who consume fewer than 30 units of alcohol per day, among other criteria.

    We can discuss your eligibility for a home detox during your telephone consultation.

    Al-Anon Family Group meetings

    Just as an alcoholic can find great comfort in group meetings like AA, their loved ones also need a place to share their thoughts and feelings with others.

    This is the purpose of Al-Anon, an organisation that provides support meetings and resources for family members and loved ones of people who are in the addiction and/or going through treatment.

    Al-Anon provides a safe space to share your experiences without judgment. Search on your preferred browser to find an Al-Anon meeting near you.

    Outpatient treatment via a local Drug & Alcohol team Essex

    Your local doctor’s office will be able to provide you with a number of resources around drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

    One possibility may be that they put you under the care of their NHS drug & alcohol outreach team, which would mean that they can check in on you from time to time.

    Being in contact with the outreach team can be a great help to many people suffering from addiction problems, and can provide guidance, comfort, and solace in times of crisis.

    ASAM criteria assessment


    When it comes to treating addiction, it is important that the clinicians involved find out as much relevant information about the patient as possible.

    The ASAM criteria is one of several different methods used to assess a person’s ability to participate in the addiction treatment process.

    It lists six different categories to be considered, as follows:

    • Acute Intoxication and/or Withdrawal PotentialExploring an individual’s past and current experience of substance use and subsequent withdrawal
    • Biomedical conditions and complications Exploring an individual’s health history and current physical conditions
    • Emotional, Behavioural, or Cognitive Conditions and ComplicationsExploring an individual’s thoughts, emotions, and mental health issues
    • Readiness to changeAssessing how willing the person is to commit to treatment
    • Relapse, continued use, or continued problem potentialExploring an individual’s unique relationship with drug or alcohol relapse or their continued use or problems
    • Recovery/living environment Exploring an individual’s recovery or living situation, and the people, places, and things involved

    The ASAM method is often used to assess new inpatients at drug & alcohol rehab Essex.

    DSM-5 Diagnostic


    The American Psychiatric Association has their own diagnostic textbook called the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5 for short.

    It features detailed information on a huge amount of mental health disorders, including substance abuse and addiction.

    The DSM-5 has its own criteria for judging the severity of a person’s substance abuse, along with a corresponding scoring system.

    The symptoms, broken down into five categories, are as follows:

    • Impaired ControlUsing more of a substance than intended, or using more often than intended; wanting to cut down but being unable to do so
    • Social ProblemsNeglecting responsibilities and relationships; giving up activities that they used to care about; being unable to complete tasks at work or school
    • Risky UseUsing in risky settings or circumstances, continuing to use despite knowing that there are problems
    • Physical Dependence Needing more of a substance to gain the same effect; having withdrawal symptoms when not using the substance

    A total score of three or four of the above symptoms would indicate a mild substance abuse disorder. Four or five would indicate a moderate substance abuse disorder, while six or seven would indicate an addiction under DSM-5 guidelines.

    Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT)


    The Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT) was devised by members of the World Health Organisation, with the intention of getting an accurate and objective reading of the extent of a person’s alcohol abuse problems.

    It features a series of questions with multiple choice answers and provides a corresponding scoring system for the person to calculate their score. A higher score indicates a possible alcohol addiction.

    The test is now available to take on the UK Government website, along with the scoring system and other relevant information – search ‘AUDIT alcoholism test’ to take it for yourself.

    Intervention – when is it necessary?


    Despite being potentially stressful or uncomfortable, an intervention can often be the only way to get through to someone who is still in denial about their drug or alcohol addiction.

    Usually, this is done by loved ones gathering in a room with the addicted person, and explaining to them as clearly and compassionately as possible the damage that they are doing.

    Ideally, this will be carried out with the help of a trained and licenced intervention counsellor, who can make sure that the meeting is productive and that tempers do not fray too much.

    There is an alternative to this method called the CRAFT approach, where the people around the addicted person used positive reinforcement and reward them whenever they make positive changes in their behaviour.

    At Rehab Recovery, we can provide free information and advice on either of these methods and how to make sure that your intervention goes as well as possible.

    Tips for choosing the right rehab


    We are here to offer advice on private rehab clinics Essex, and which would be the most suitable for you.

    However, if you would prefer to conduct your own research on rehab clinics within Essex, there are a few different things that you should look out for:

    • ApproachabilityContact the clinic and see how they communicate with you. It’s a simple thing, but can be a very important factor if you are to stay at a rehab for weeks.
    • Track recordFind out how long the clinic has been open – this is usually a good indication of the quality of the clinic. Ideally, it should be at least 20 years.
    • Certifications The clinic should have a list of their clinical staff on their website, along with their qualifications and levels of experience.
    • ReviewsWhen you search for a clinic, it should be easy to find a series of Google reviews from former patients. These reviews can give a great level of insight.
    • Success ratesTry to find out some statistics about what percentage of the clinic’s former patients have achieved long-term sobriety after treatment.

    Other factors to consider are pricing and travelling distance to the clinic, which is especially important if you are trying to secure outpatient care.

    How long does rehab last?


    Most people who go to residential rehab will stay there for a total of 28 days. This includes admission, detox, therapy, and relapse prevention planning.

    There are more short-term alternatives, such as a standalone detox, which will cost less money. However, without the rest of the treatment, your chances of sustaining recovery will be diminished.

    In some circumstances, such as extreme long-term addiction, a person may end up staying in rehab for up to 90 days. However, this is very uncommon, and most people stay less than a month.

    Rehab for Cocaine in Essex


    Cocaine abuse is a major social problem in every city in the UK. It causes an array of health risks, not to mention the indirect consequences, such as increases in incidents of violent crime and other antisocial behaviours.

    Cocaine is a highly expensive and highly addictive drug, and can very quickly cause a problem for many people. The best place to treat cocaine addiction is at rehab.

    Although cocaine is one of the most dangerous drugs on the market, you may be surprised to learn that withdrawing from cocaine does not require a medical detox.

    However, it is always best to go through cocaine withdrawal under proper supervision, so that your physical and/or psychological withdrawal symptoms can be monitored professionally.

    You can then go on to address the underlying causes and motivations of your cocaine abuse through therapy and treatment, before putting together a relapse prevention plan for when you leave.

    Rehab for Heroin in Essex


    Although it is something that is often pushed under the carpet and considered a taboo subject, heroin abuse is a lot more common than most people think.

    Life in heroin addiction is incredibly difficult, and the withdrawal symptoms involved are so bad that people will go to extreme lengths to afford their next fix.

    These severely difficult withdrawal symptoms mean that the best place to go through heroin detox is at a residential rehab clinic, where you can have proper medical supervision as you go through it.

    Heroin detox usually involves the use of a medication by the name of Subutex, before moving on to Methadone, usually for a minimum of 12 months.

    It is well known that heroin is one of the most challenging drugs to kick, but with the help of top treatment professionals at drug & alcohol rehab Essex, it is always possible.

    Rehab for Cannabis in Essex


    Cannabis is so widely used around the UK that you could be forgiven for thinking that it was a legal or decriminalised substance. However, cannabis possession is still a Class B drug, and possession of the drug is punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

    Despite the many myths and misconceptions around cannabis use, cannabis is not harmless, and it is entirely possible to become addicted to cannabis.

    If you find that cannot function normally without cannabis, it is time to accept that you have a cannabis addiction. If this is the case, the best place to treat the addiction is rehab.

    Cannabis does not require detox, but residential rehab is still the best place to get treatment and to better understand the factors that drive you to cannabis use in the first place.

    Once you have been through a few weeks of treatment and therapy at drug & alcohol rehab Essex, you will be able to look forward to a fulfilling and healthy future without cannabis.

    Relapse prevention planning at rehab


    When it comes to rehab treatment, the final piece of the puzzle is to put together a plan for staying in recovery and sobriety once you leave the clinic.

    It will likely be a big readjustment going back into the outside world, and you will need to put preparations in place to ensure that you don’t become overwhelmed.

    Your relapse prevention plan will be drawn up with the help of the professionals around you at rehab and will take your own triggers and addiction factors into account.

    You may be asked to readjust your social circle, as well as be mindful of the kinds of places that you go to, in order to void potential triggers.

    It will probably also be suggested to attend regular group therapy meetings – perhaps at Alcoholics Anonymous or through SMART Recovery.

    Long-term recovery is achievable, but it does not happen by itself – it will take a continuous, proactive effort, along with appropriate treatment and medication.

    What Can I Expect From Rehab In Essex?


    When you enter a treatment programme you will be subject to a detox process where you will purge the substance from your body over one to two weeks. You will be constantly observed by medical professionals and you will be treated with prescription medications to treat the side effects of withdrawal.

    You can choose between rehab and detox, but with the rehab option, you will access therapy sessions to address your mental and physical state. Although this treatment option is longer is it also more effective.

    Prescription medications can assist with painful withdrawal symptoms and treatment is offered in an understanding and respectful manner. Trust between the patient and the team of professionals is the most important factor in successful treatment. The intended result is to keep the addiction away from the balance of your life.

    Do I Need To Go To Rehab?


    Millions of people need drug or alcohol abuse treatment. However, there are only a small fraction of those people will seek out the help that they need and follow through with treatment.

    Most won’t seek treatment because they are ashamed or don’t think that they can afford it.

    Here are 10 signs that you need to seek rehab:

    1. You haven’t been truthful about your use

    Maybe you think that it’s no one’s business but yours about how much you consume, but if you must hide your use from anyone then it’s a sign that you have a problem. Lying about how much, you use means that you no longer have control.

    2. You are experiencing health issues because of your substance abuse

    Abusing a substance has negative health connotations but physical changes as a result of substance abuse are a warning sign that you need to get help. Physical issues are not always immediately apparent, but by the time they are noticeable, it is time to consider rehab.

    3. Family and friends advise you that you should get help

    If friends or family have tried to speak to you about their concerns regarding your substance abuse it is a definite sign that you have a problem. No one wants to hear that they have a problem and being told this can make them feel shameful, but it can motivate someone to get the help that they need.

    4. Relationships are strained with family and friends

    Substance abuse problems can create rifts between you and those you care about and can cause strain on relationships. People who have addictions tend to get into arguments with those that they care about. If you find that your relationships are strained with those that are close to you this is a sign that you need rehab.

    5. You can’t quit on your own

    You may have tried to quit substance abuse but have not been able to stay away from it. Admitting that you have an issue and then trying to abstain from using a substance is not enough because the temptation can be too much.

    6. You have been in trouble with the law regarding your substance abuse

    If you have been involved with police because of your substance abuse this is an indication that you have no control over your behaviour and need professional treatment. This is a good time to deal with your problem instead of ignoring it before you end up in court.

    7. Your work is suffering

    Addiction can develop into a serious issue and it will have an effect on other aspects of your life too. If you are having problems with work such as being late, not showing up or using at lunch, it’s a sign that you need help.

    8. You miss obligations and important events

    Most substance users don’t believe that their addiction will have a negative impact on anyone, but that is not true. What happens is that they end up choosing substance use over anything else in their life and miss out on important life events that will never happen again.

    9. Using is more important than anything else in your life

    When you start to choose using over any of your interests or anything else in your life, this should be a sign that you need help. This means that you have a serious dependence and you are giving it priority over everything.

    10. You start relying on that substance to help you through your day

    Most substance abuse issues begin with occasional substance abuse with the user thinking that they have control over how much they are using. As addiction progresses, the user starts to rely more on that substance to help them get through their day. This is an indication that the addiction is out of control.

    The Admissions Process For Rehab In Essex


    When you decide to check in to rehab Essex, you will be contacted by a team member from the facility that you choose to have an assessment carried out. This is how it can be guaranteed that you will have all that you need when you stay at the facility.

    Next, a doctor will assess you with a detailed medical assessment and prescribe medication, if needed, for your detox. Generally, the staff at the facility understand the process because they have been through rehab too.

    Your medical assessment ensures that you have all that you need to be cared for while you stay in rehab.

    Any existing illnesses will be managed at the same time with medication if you have it. During your first days of treatment, you will meet with therapists and counsellors who will work with you to discover the underlying causes of your addiction issues.

    Understanding The Rehab Process


    Our rehab in Essex process has four phases. First, there is the admission and assessment phase. This is the same at every treatment facility and involves meeting with professionals to discuss the options for treatments and decide which ones will work best in your case.

    You may undergo a medical exam, and psychological assessments, and be asked about your history of drug or alcohol use, family history regarding addiction, how you plan to pay for treatment, and then a plan will be crafted to suit you.

    Phase two is the detox process which is the removal of toxic substances from your body. It is best when you undergo this phase without the need for medication, but some people prefer prescriptions to ease the symptoms of withdrawal.

    The third phase is to build a foundation for the future of your treatment. This includes treatment programs such as inpatient, outpatient, or hospitalization. Therapy is included in this treatment plan also. The fourth phase is follow-up and future plans in the event that relapse is imminent.

    Benefits Of Going To Rehab In Essex


    Residential rehab Essex is the best place to complete treatment for addiction issues because professionally trained staff and medical professionals are available to supervise the safest detox process and make certain that you are comfortable while being supported during a time in your life that will feel very scary and uncomfortable.

    Some withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to manage and not having proper medical supervision during detox can lead to relapse.

    Rehab programs offer structured programs with therapy that can address the patterns which lead to dependence. Professional help improves the chances of a better outcome for treatment.

    Types Of Therapy I Can Access During Rehab


    Not every type of therapy works for every person, but the good news is that there is a wide range of types of therapies available during your rehab Essex including:

    Are Family Visits Allowed?


    Most rehab facilities do not want visitors, particularly family and friends, in the early stages of treatment. The reasons are many, but mostly it is because these relationships can be a trigger for the patient.

    As you work through your detox and therapy phases, you can arrange to have visits with family and friends.

    Why Is A Medically Assisted Detox Safer?


    Withdrawing from substances can cause severe symptoms that may be mild or very severe. Some of these symptoms can cause complications that may be life-threatening.

    Medical supervision is strongly recommended during the entire detox process. With access to professional care always you will be cared for while you work through your recovery.

    Withdrawal symptoms can vary between different substances, but the most common thing to occur is severe discomfort which can lead to relapse. Medically assisted detox means that prescriptions are made available to assist with these symptoms to increase the chances of long-term success.

    Detox that is medically assisted is so much safer than detoxing alone. First, when you are detoxing, the symptoms of withdrawal can be very uncomfortable and even deadly. The withdrawal symptoms can cause a user to relapse and they can include anything from muscle aches to high blood pressure.

    Anxiety can be very high and can be accompanied by diarrhoea, vomiting, and nausea. Withdrawal from alcohol can be particularly deadly including delirium, acute withdrawal, seizures and psychiatric issues.

    Emotional counselling and support are important because detox can bring on many emotions and pain which were previously dealt with through self-medication.

    One common reason people turn to drugs or alcohol is an undiagnosed mental disorder. Without support and counselling sustained recovery is not likely.

    People who try to detox alone tend to relapse because they can’t deal with the discomfort of withdrawal and the mood changes that come with the detox process. The reminder that it will all get better and to continue comes with a team of support people who are not in your circle if you are going it alone.

    What Are my Rehab Options?


    There are several options for rehab Essex and the option that you choose will depend on what you need for treatment. Outpatient rehab relies on you to do considerable work on your own, while inpatient is where you are in a programme and have supervision.

    Detox is where you break free from the initial grips of addiction with or without medication and rehab therapy addresses the psychological aspects of addiction.

    Here is more detail on these options:

    1. Outpatient Rehab

    It is up to you whether you will be an inpatient or an outpatient and whether you want to attend a public or a private clinic. Outpatient is often free, but you need to visit a facility as directed, regularly.

    When you are going through detox you may need to report into a facility each day. Visiting daily will allow you to receive required medications to assist you with your treatment and have your GP or RN to keep track of your progress.

    After detox is complete, you can access services through support groups and/or charities, but you will need to find those programmes yourself.

    2. Inpatient Rehab

    This is offered by private clinics and charitable organisations. Inpatient rehab requires you to stay at a facility for your entire treatment.

    These programmes can last anywhere from four to twelve weeks, depending on your needs. Inpatient rehab includes detox, rehab, therapy, and aftercare.

    3. Detox

    This treatment program works to help patients break free from their physical addiction to a substance. The only way to achieve this is to stop using the substance and then endure the body’s reaction to this through withdrawal symptoms.

    You can access prescription medication to help you to endure the suffering. Medicated detox can prolong the detox process which is highly undesirable. Non-medicated detox will allow you to withdraw without medication, it’s faster, but it is not easy.

    4. Rehab Therapy

    Rehabilitative therapy is how a person works through the psychological bonds of addiction. These are the emotions and processes that lead a person to become addicted, continue with addiction, and cause an addict to fear a sober life.

    Specialists who deal with rehab work with certain tools to deal with the issues associated with addiction. These include work around uncovering emotional issues and triggers and developing an understanding of how your behaviour hurts friends and family.

    What Does a Typical Day in Rehab Look Like?


    If you were to be enrolled in a rehab program, your typical day would include: a healthy breakfast early in the morning followed by a check-in meeting and possibly some meditation or yoga. Changing your mindset is a massive part of recovery, so the 12-step programme is key.

    Focus is on clarity around people, issues, and your life so that you can identify what has added to your behaviours and how you can identify behaviour patterns and change triggers. In the afternoon, you would eat a healthy lunch and then start therapy sessions.

    There are many types of therapy including group, individual, cognitive behavioural, specialised sessions, and family therapy. There may also be speciality therapy sessions such as biofeedback, dance therapy, art or music therapy, exercise programs, neurofeedback, or equine therapy.

    How Long Will I Spend In Rehab?


    The length of rehab in Essex depends on many different factors. First, the severity of the addiction and what substance is being used.

    Most rehab centres recommend a minimum of 6 weeks, but longer programmes are better and provide more reliable results. Minimum detox periods are generally 14 days.

    The support of psychological and therapeutic portions should be incorporated as part of a detox programme. People who complete at least 28 days in a treatment centre are up to four times more likely to abstain from substance abuse than others.

    The four-week programme is standard in most treatment centres.

    How Much Is The Cost Of Rehab In Essex?


    Now that you know what is involved in the various types of treatment in rehab, you have a better idea of what it takes to complete a programme. There is your commitment, there are doctors, possible medical intervention, supervision, counselling and various therapies, all of which come together to form your treatment programme.

    The average inpatient treatment programme is around £1,000 for one week. If you are planning to get into a 28 day/four-week program, it will cost you around £4,000 for the entire treatment plan. Of course, some private treatment centres charge as much as £10,000 per week.

    The main thing to remember is that there are programmes out there for every budget, so continue looking around until you find the right fit. These programmes cost money because of the cost of all the professionals, your stay at the facility, meals, insurance, cost of medication, and property maintenance.

    Some workplaces will cover the cost of rehab through employee benefit programs, but others want you to pay using your own funds. Whatever it is, remember that you are making an investment in yourself to get healthy and live a better life.

    Telling Your Employer


    Going into rehab Essex means that you will have an extended absence. It is important to talk to your employer about that. Make sure that you are prepared before you have an important conversation with your boss.

    Review any policy that your company has regarding addiction and rehab. Be open and honest and make full disclosure with your boss.

    Explain that treatment is important for your health and future. You have a right to get treatment under the law without being punished by your boss.

    Your boss should make plans to prepare for the time that you will be away. If your boss is not understanding or you don’t feel that you can have a conversation with him or her, you can also ask for a leave of absence or time away without pay.

    Our Aftercare Services


    Once you complete your treatment programme you still have not reached the end of your recovery process. The truth is that you are always recovering from addiction and you are at risk of relapsing at any time. That is why it is important to continue with therapy and check-in with support.

    Our aftercare programme involves direct access to resources and support around the clock, including speaking to our licenced counsellors whenever you need once you have been reintroduced to the community.

    This 12-month free aftercare package provides you with the best chance of sticking to your recovery plan and maintaining your own sobriety.

    Twelve-step programs are great because you are encouraged to continually share your story and meet with others who have similar challenges. This means that you will be able to find support from peers.

    Can I Leave Rehab Early If I Want To?

    It is totally up to you if you want to leave rehab early, but if you are in the middle of your treatment and have been making the process, you may be making your decision due to anxiety.

    It is important to have a discussion with your therapists and medical team and then wait for a full 24 hours before making your decision final.

    We also offer our drug and alcohol rehab services in a variety of locations across the UK, including London, HertfordshireOxfordshireReadingLutonSloughBerkshireBrighton and more!

    Just remember, it isn’t really a fun experience to be at rehab in the first place and you are going to encounter a lot of really low times. Leaving early means that you may lose all of your progress and can hinder your recovery efforts.
