    How Does Rehab Work?

    Two people holding hands

    We might hear people talking about rehab in the media – maybe in films, or people talking about celebrities who may have spent some time in rehab – but what does it actually mean to spend time in a program like a drug alcohol rehab in Haverhill?

    Rehab is short for rehabilitation.

    Rehabilitation, according to the World Health Organisation, is ‘a set of interventions designed to optimize functioning’ and a method to ‘ensure healthy lives and promote well-being.’ [1]

    Drug and alcohol rehab is a way of promoting well-being by helping people to tackle difficult relationships they may have with substances.

    Our aim at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill is to help people feel in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours with and around drugs and alcohol.

    We offer a range of support services for people struggling with addiction to drugs, for those who may benefit from spending some time in alcohol treatment, or for people who are struggling with managing addictive behaviours.

    At Rehab Recovery, we believe that the individual should be at the centre of their own treatment.

    This means designing treatment plans and support packages that have you and your needs in mind.

    How Do I Know if I’m Addicted?

    Two men, one with his hand on the other's shoulder

    It can be difficult to identify an addiction.

    It can be even harder to accept that we may be dealing with an addiction ourselves.

    This can be because after we have been dealing with something for some time, it can become our new normal, so we may struggle to identify that something may actually be happening.

    It can also be hard to accept, as we can experience lots of feelings around addiction.

    It’s not uncommon for people to feel guilty or even embarrassed about substance abuse – however, at Rehab Recovery, we believe that addiction isn’t something to be ashamed of. 

    Everyone – regardless of their situation – deserves to access the support that will help them to achieve long-term recovery. 

    Signs of Addiction

    If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the following things, then it is possible that you are currently dealing with addiction:

    • decline in mental health, worsening depression or anxiety
    • aggression or irritability, feeling quick to anger or easily annoyed by others
    • unexplained aches, pains, or illnesses
    • not going to work, school, or university
    • not meeting deadlines from work, school or university
    • being in conflict with managers, supervisors, head teachers or school management
    • withdrawing from friends and family, becoming reclusive
    • spending an increasing amount of time with a new group of friends
    • struggling to maintain personal hygiene (showering less often, etc)
    • struggling to look after your surroundings
    • struggling to keep childcare commitments
    • struggling with making payments for bills, some unexplained financial issues

    If you identify with any of these statements and feel that you may be experiencing these things due to your substance use, you may benefit from talking with our team at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill.

    What Happens During Rehab?

    Everyone’s experience with a drug or alcohol rehab centre will be slightly different.

    This is because we believe that the most successful treatment happens when medical professionals take a personal approach.

    This means taking into account you and your situation.

    The kind of treatment you may access could change depending on the following:

    One of the first major decisions to make is if inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment would work best for you.

    Outpatient Rehab

    Outpatient rehab is a treatment option available for those who do not need – or do not wish to – stay in a treatment facility overnight.

    There are intensive outpatient programs which allow you to access support from clinical staff and addiction specialists on a meeting basis.

    This means that you will have appointments scheduled that you will be required to attend.

    For some people, this makes it easier to stay in employment or to keep to their usual routine as closely as possible.

    This can be effective for some individuals as it means that life keeps a steady pace and retains a sense of ‘normality’ throughout the duration of your meetings with our care team. [4]

    For others, outpatient treatment may not be suitable, as a more structured continuum of care can be helpful in those early stages of the recovery journey.

    Inpatient Rehab

    Inpatient services work differently from outpatient support.

    Instead of working on an appointment system, inpatient addiction treatment functions around the idea of round-the-clock care.

    What this means, is that you will temporarily stay at a live-in facility.

    Previously, this was the standard for addiction treatment.

    However, research has suggested that inpatient support is not a required component of the recovery process for all individuals with addiction – it can sometimes be enough to seek help from home.

    In some instances, though, admission to a residential addiction treatment facility is advised.

    This can usually be because residing in the rehab facility can limit access to substances, and therefore reduce the temptation to use in the early stages of treatment.

    It can also help you to build positive relationships. Connection is a very important part of quality treatment.

    More consistent contact with your team of physicians – as well as with peers in the centre – can help to foster a sense of community which can ultimately improve well-being. [5]

    What Happens if I Need to Take Medication in Rehab?

    Medication-assisted treatment is common in addiction care.

    This is usually for two reasons:

    1.  detox medication can help you deal with the feelings of withdrawal, and therefore assist you in recovery
    2. you may have a physical or mental health condition that requires medication

    In both cases, you will be allowed to continue medications that are not part of the substance use you are seeking support for. [6]

    In these situations, your medication may be given to your support team when you are admitted, so they can ensure your medication is kept and taken safely.

    If you decide to access intensive outpatient treatment services, you can talk with your team about managing medication at home.

    Should I Travel for Rehab?

    Some people may prefer to stay at home – close to their support network, to their usual living arrangements – in order to maintain their usual lives as much as possible.

    In these cases, you may find it helpful to attend drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill, or another location close to you.

    Others might find it attractive to travel for rehab.

    There are various reasons for doing this.

    Perhaps you are travelling to ensure you can fully focus on yourself, to increase your chances of stable sobriety.

    You could be temporarily moving to avoid a difficult situation, or maybe in order to maintain your privacy whilst in treatment.

    How Long is Rehab?

    There’s no one length of treatment for a substance use disorder.

    The typical stay at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill is 28 days – so, around a month.

    Some people find that they do not need this much support and may only stay in a rehab facility for a few days.

    Others may have more long-term support and stay in rehab for a few months. 

    It’s difficult to assess how long your treatment will take without the context – the team will be more than happy to speak to you about the recommended treatment times for long-term sobriety and how this can relate to your specific situation.

    How Much Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Cost?

    A phone calculator held above some documents

    The average stay in an inpatient facility is 28 days.

    For these 28 days of support at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill, the price is usually around the £14,000 mark. [7]

    This works out to around £500 a day for the gold-standard care available at one of our treatment facilities.

    Options for Financing Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Haverhill

    • direct debit schemes and payment plans
    • support from your insurance plans
    • support from your employer’s insurance plans
    • support from loved ones
    • support from local funds
    • support from charity or fundraising

    Medical Alcohol and Drug Detox

    A pill packet with doses of medication

    Some forms of treatment will begin with a medical detox.

    Detox is short for detoxification and refers to the length of time it takes for a substance to leave your body.

    A detox program can last for up to a week.

    The goal of a detox is to ensure you are physically fit and healthy, and that you are able to manage any cravings that you may be experiencing.

    It’s not uncommon to experience withdrawal symptoms during a detox.

    This can be difficult; however, you may be offered some medications to help you manage these tricky side effects.

    Studies have suggested that those who have a detox phase during their time in treatment are less likely to relapse in the future. [8]

    Therapy Options for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

    An older man looking wistfully over a mountainous scene

    Whilst a drug or alcohol detox helps with the physical side of addiction, intensive therapy tackles the psychological elements of substance abuse.

    There are many different kinds of therapy available.

    During your time at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill, you may engage in several of these kinds of treatment:

    People often find the therapy component of treatment the most rewarding.

    This can be because it can help people to spend time reflecting on their situation, and perhaps considering what may have led to their addiction struggle. 

    In some cases, people may disclose histories of trauma that may have been under the surface for years or find methods of coping with a mental illness that may have led to substance abuse. [9]

    This can work to help people feel lighter, less burdened, and crucially, able to regain control of their drug and alcohol consumption.

    Seeing Friends and Family During Treatment

    The level of family involvement can be altered as part of our personal approach to supporting people at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill.

    Some people find that they would like to access their support individually and would prefer to not have family involved.

    Others may feel that their family system is an integral part of their recovery and may wish to involve relatives or friends in the recovery process to build a supportive network and remain in their usual communities.

    Accessing Family Therapy at Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Haverhill

    In some instances, some people may wish to have their family involved for a different reason.

    Many people find it helpful to have family therapy during drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill.

    This may be to ensure the family fully understand their situation, or it may be to help resolve conflicts and have difficult conversations with a clinician present to ensure the discussion is mediated and successful. [10]

    What Should I Tell My Employer?

    Two people filling out paperwork

    Under employer standards, your employer should be sensitive to your current situation.

    However, they will need to put things like health and safety first, to ensure the well-being of their team.

    If you work with or operate heavy machinery, work at heights, with chemicals, or in any other potentially risky situation, you may need to put measures in place to ensure safety standards are maintained.

    If you work in any of these contexts, randomised drug testing is a frequent practice.

    However, for these tests to be legal, they should be:

    • randomised tests
    • not used to ‘single out’, particularly employees unless they have a justified reason to do so [11]

    How Effective is Addiction Treatment?

    A person writing a checklist in a jotter

    It’s not easy to completely define the effectiveness of addiction treatment as a whole, as everyone will respond differently.

    There’s no black-and-white answer to this question, as recovery will look different in different people.

    At Rehab Recovery, we hope that our treatments work to improve the general wellbeing of our clients, to allow them to feel like they have more control over their use of substances, as well as knowing where to access support if needed in the future.

    What Happens If I Relapse?

    Relapse doesn’t mean failure.

    Some people find that they need to return to treatment – this could mean accessing support at drug and alcohol rehab in Haverhill more than once.

    This does not mean that the treatment isn’t working – relapse can happen when we hit bumps in the road, with difficult life events and stressors may complicate things and throw us off guard. [12]

    Developing a Relapse Prevention Plan

    A bumpy road surrounded by forest

    During your treatment with us, we will help you to identify your warning signs, of what it may look like if you are heading towards relapse.

    From here, we will work with you to develop a relapse prevention plan to help keep you in control of your situation as much as possible.

    This plan will typically include:

    • potential triggers/ life events/places or people that could lead to relapse
    • signs of what to look for, or what relapse may look like to you:
      • your feelings
      • your thoughts
      • your behaviours
    • what you can do if you feel you may be at risk of relapsing:
      • ways to calm down
      • ways to leave a situation
      • who to contact
      • alternat behaviours/ coping mechanisms to use
      • ways to stay safe [12]

    This plan will be an important part of your aftercare package and will be designed with the goal of keeping you feeling safe, sober, and in control.
