    Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Weybridge

    It’s so easy to slip from a casual drink or experimental “high” at a festival to more regular substance use. Those days are likely quite far in the past if you’ve happened across this page.

    Remembering, though, that the road to unhealthy substance use is never intentional and happens to so many is actually helpful. It was recently reported that 28% of people in Surrey drink more than recommended amounts.[1]

    Also, there were “130 drug deaths between 2017-19″.[2] Being in Surrey, the Weybridge population is obviously included in these figures.

    You aren’t the only person who has slipped into addiction. Sadly, as time goes on when you’re immersed in the habit, the negative knock-on effects can be devastating. It’s never too late to change, though.

    Your road to recovery will get off to the best start at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge.

    Support for substance abuse in Weybridge

    Men chatting

    If you have an alcohol or drug addiction, or your substance use is getting out of hand but you aren’t sure it’s a serious problem, then you need to seek support. This is because of how psychoactive substances affect your mind, physical health, ability to function, and relationships.

    In Weybridge, there are a few options in terms of support. Some people try them all, others find they’re only attracted to one of the options.

    What’s important to realise is that treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge is the place where you’ll get the best standard of support. This is because of the specialist staff and level of care provided.

    You’ll want a suitable programme of therapy to guide you effectively through the recovery process. In terms of where you go, you can get free treatment and treatment that you pay for.

    It’s worth knowing more about the options so you know what’s on offer from each and what will suit you best.

    Alcoholics Anonymous support groups

    Those with an alcohol addiction can go to 12 Step groups. Alcoholics Anonymous is well-known throughout the world.

    It’s a space people go to meet others and come to terms with the fact that they do, indeed, suffer from alcoholism. There’s a focus on finding a higher power that you can put faith in. For some people, that’s God, for others nature.

    People move through the 12 Steps with the aim of becoming sober and remaining so. Whether in active alcoholism or not, people are welcome to sessions if they’ve had an addiction to alcohol.

    Groups take place throughout the week in various locations in Weybridge.

    Narcotics Anonymous meetings

    Narcotics Anonymous is similar to AA (above) but for those who have drug addictions. People addicted to benzodiazepines, cocaine, heroin, ketamine, etc. are welcome to these meetings that are run throughout the week in different community spaces in Weybridge.

    Again the focus is on admitting you’re “an addict”, making social connections, and driving yourself to create a life without the substance.

    Like AA it’s a peer-led group meaning it’s facilitated by people like you rather than trained professionals.

    SMART meetings

    SMART recovery meetings are for people who have substance misuse problems but who want meetings that aren’t faith-based (i.e. like AA). It’s an approach that guides people to take a practical approach to healing.

    You learn how to break down each day and goal into parts so that they’re easier to face. These are often held at NHS drug and alcohol clinics.

    NHS drug and alcohol services

    There are drug and alcohol services in Weybridge. These are especially useful for people with mild drug and alcohol consumption and for those who really don’t want to go to rehab yet.

    It’s a more relaxed approach to treatment than a private clinic because you drop into sessions as and when you want.

    The addiction services team provide harm reduction and addiction advice. There are weekly group sessions such as “preparation to change” and 12 Step sessions. As well as this there is a needle exchange and sometimes one-to-one support.

    Unfortunately, many people find that they struggle to get ongoing help from mental health services if they’re in contact with substance misuse services. One of the great benefits of private care is that the two are addressed.

    What happens at a private rehab?

    Private care is different to the options just mentioned. It’s where you get a fully comprehensive and intensive programme of care that is suited to your individual needs.

    On entering the clinic, you’ll go through the admissions process. A member of staff will ask questions about your addiction history, relapse experience thus far, how you feel about recovery, what your health is like, and what life is like in general.

    From this, they’ll create a personalised treatment plan.

    At a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge, you’ll wake early each day, have nutritious meals that support healing, take part in relaxing activities, put effort into deep emotional therapy and will develop coping mechanisms and skills to manage abstinence long-term.

    There’s a list of benefits upcoming, so keep reading…

    The psychological therapy and treatments at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge

    At a private rehab facility, you’ll be supported through a wide variety of psychological therapies and holistic treatments. These provide you with places to develop deep self-awareness and techniques to manage addictive behaviours.

    • Cognitive behavioural therapy is where a therapist introduces you to your automatic thoughts. The majority of our thoughts pass without much conscious effort and these often inspire our behaviours. In the case of addiction, this is often unhealthy. You’ll learn how to notice unhealthy thoughts and how to redirect them so that your behaviours become positive.
    • Dialectical behavioural therapy is for people who haven’t learnt the skills to effectively regulate their emotions. This is done through identifying emotions, understanding how they’re affecting your mind and body, and then finding healthy ways to process them. For people who use substances, this is really important.
    • An integrative counsellor will provide counselling where you’re encouraged to explore your thoughts and feelings about things that have happened in the past and what’s happening now. You’ll start to understand what’s motivated your behaviours and how you want to manage yourself in the future.
    • Motivational interviewing is where you’ll talk about the conflict you have about quitting. This is very normal when people have addictions. The feelings of wanting to quit but not wanting to let go as well as a whole host of other difficult emotions can be very unsettling. This therapy helps you to clarify your thoughts.
    • There will be a programme of holistic therapy. You’ll get to experience different activities that will provide you with grounding techniques, alternative ways to explore and express, and the chance of deep relaxation. You could try many of the following depending on what’s on offer: art therapy, music therapy, equine therapy, reiki, ear acupuncture, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and tai chi.
    • 12 Step and SMART-style groups take place regularly too. Their format is similar as to what was mentioned earlier. At rehab, it’s really helpful to connect with other residents. This reduces the isolation that addiction causes and is renowned for its many recovery benefits.
    • Family therapy is offered to some. It’s especially important where relationships are strained or where communication has broken down. A therapist will guide you and your family to come to a place of understanding and healthy conversation while honouring differences and the reality of the family journey ahead.

    Alcohol detox at a rehab centre

    If you have an alcohol misuse issue it can go on to create dependence. This is when you stop drinking for a period of time and start experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. The body starts to physically react to the lack of substance.

    This is because the brain has come to rely on alcohol’s effects to function “normally”.

    At rehab, you’ll be prescribed a detox medication called Librium. It reduces withdrawal symptoms and keeps you physiologically safe.

    This prescription weans you off alcohol over a period of time (from seven to fourteen days depending on personal circumstances). The dosage gradually reduces until your medication and alcohol-free.

    Drug detox at drug rehab

    Private treatment services also offer drug detoxes where dependency has developed. For people addicted to opiates or benzodiazepines, this is imperative.

    The medical professionals at the clinic will assess your health and make a detox plan which will include medication, dosages, and nutritional guidance. Like with the alcohol detox, you’ll be gradually weaned off the substance over seven to fourteen days.

    Subutex, a synthetic opioid, is used to help people come off opiates. It eases symptoms without causing a high.

    How long do you stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge?

    Support group

    It’s useful to know how long you’re likely to need to stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge. A chat with a member of the Rehab Recovery team can make this clearer for you as we can do an informal assessment of your needs over the phone.

    As a guide, though, the majority of residents stay around 28 days. This is how long it takes to get through withdrawal, do some deep emotional and cognitive work, and learn new behaviours.

    Some residents actually stay much longer. Three months is an option where the need to rewrite neural pathways and learn healthy habits is more difficult for some people.

    Also, those who have more complex situations (i.e. more than one addiction or co-occurring mental health disorders) are likely to stay longer.

    How much does it cost to get treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge?

    A phone calculator held above some documents

    In the UK, there are many private rehab clinics. The cost differs according to where you go and what you need.

    The length of time will have an impact on cost as well as the in-house options you have. For instance, some people ask for additional therapy sessions and a private bedroom to themselves at an increased cost.

    Treatment at rehab can cost anywhere from the more expensive at £10,000 a week to the more budget-friendly at £1,000 a week.

    Treatment grants for a stay at a drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge

    There is some limited NHS funding for treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge.

    To be eligible for the funding you must meet the following criteria:

    • Be from a low-income background
    • Be regularly in contact with NHS drug and alcohol services doing everything that’s recommended
    • Be absolutely committed to recovery and able to evidence this

    Even with all this, you apply to the local Weybridge Council with your NHS substance use worker and might still be rejected. People often have to apply a few times because of how competitive it is to get funded placements.

    Also, it’s very common for people to be on a waitlist for at least three months before a place comes up.

    As you can imagine, this can be quite difficult for some to manage alone when they’re trying so hard to remain sober to prove they’re taking recovery “seriously”.

    Can you pay through private health insurance to go to rehab?

    It’s possible if you have private health insurance that it might cover the cost of private treatment. To find out, have a look at your policy terms and conditions.

    Keep in mind, however, that claiming through your insurance will increase future premiums.

    Another thing to be aware of is that if your health insurance is offered through your place of employment, then you might be under oath to notify your employers of your addiction and plan to go to rehab. For some people, this is fine, for others it can cause a conflict of interest.

    The benefits of private rehab clinics

    Two women chatting and smiling on a bench

    • The success rates of people remaining sober in recovery are highest for those who have entered private clinics. This is because of the amount of treatments offered, the standard of care, the amount you learn and time you give dedicated to creating that basis to heal.
    • You have a safe environment that’s totally substance-free. Staff are available 24 hours a day so you always have someone when needed.
    • The staffing team is made up of qualified specialists. There are psychological therapists offering a wide range of treatments through the therapy programme, medical staff to support detoxes, alternative practitioners providing holistic approaches, and brilliant drug and alcohol workers.
    • As well as social, psychological and emotional learning, you’ll develop life skills. All of these support a meaningful and more content life when you return home.
    • You can be treated for behavioural addiction as well as addiction to psychoactive substances.
    • Dual diagnosis treatment is available too as mental health conditions often occur alongside addiction.
    • Rehab residents get access to 1-year free aftercare services which include an aftercare plan. This covers relapse prevention and how to build a meaningful sober life. Some people might have some outpatient counselling or online therapy if they leave the drug and alcohol rehab in Weybridge after a month but still want a bit more support.
