Rehab For Alcohol or Drug Addiction In Gloucestershire

Breaking free from addiction to alcohol or drugs means finding treatment that meets your needs. The factors that go into deciding on rehab treatment include (e.g.) how long you’ve suffered from alcohol or substance abuse, frequency of substance use, your medical history, and previous relapses.

Private treatment for alcohol or drug rehab in a clinic in Gloucestershire can provide comfortable, safe detoxification. Treatment usually includes therapy from alcohol and drug specialists, many having personal experience of addiction themselves.

Alcohol or drug rehab stays in Gloucestershire vary from 14-28 days or longer. Most rehab clinics include detox, therapy, and planning supports for the future.

Costs of private rehab treatment are different for each clinic, and depend on your needs, and duration of stay. An estimate for Abbeycare Gloucester can be obtained from Abbeybot, below.

What Happens In Alcohol Or Drug Rehab Gloucester?

During rehab, you’ll complete a full withdrawal from alcohol or drugs, gain insights into the reasons behind your addiction, and plan supports for the future, to prevent relapse.

Inpatient treatment is usually preferable to outpatient treatment, as you can work continuously on recovery from addiction, uninterrupted by the events of daily life.

Some centres also provide additional supports for family members, including therapy or aftercare programmes.

Finding The Right Rehab Help In Gloucester


What You Should Know About Rehab

Navigating treatment options for addiction can be tricky. Here's what you need to know:

  • Decisions you make early in the admission process can impact the aftercare and support you receive in future.
  • Choosing a rehab based solely on location, or how quickly you can detox, doesn't automatically mean your chosen provider will have the most suitable therapy programme for you.
  • The length of time you've spent in active addiction, may affect the timescales and nature of the detox you receive, and how quickly you progress into therapy.
  • Selecting a stay duration that's too short, may increase the risk of relapse, later.

A competent admissions team, within your prospective clinic, should be able to help you with all these elements.

How To Find A Gloucester Rehab Clinic That Matches Your Needs


When setting out to find the right addiction help, there are some key elements to look for:

Stopping Usage

Your individual needs for detox and withdrawal management should be overseen by a medical professional working with the clinic you admit to.

They do not need to be present 24/7, but they do need to be overseeing your progress.

Why It's Important

No two individuals' history of alcohol/drug usage or history is the same. 

The potential strain placed upon the body to remove toxins during treatment, depends on multiple factors, personal to the individual.

Ask any prospective treatment clinic what professionals are available to assist in planning your treatment, and to what extent it will be customised.

AbbeycareGloucester_ClientSpeakingWithSpecialist
AbbeycareGloucester_MentalHealthFactors

Mental Health Factors

Any complicating mental health factors should be planned for, ahead of time. Co-existing mental health conditions, can impact upon length of stay, and may involve additional secondary care or onward referral. Ask the provider how they might deal with such issues, if applicable.

Why It's Important

Sometimes, mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety, happen before an addiction develops. Other times, the addiction itself causes the depression or anxiety.

Treating the addiction issues first, will often surface secondary mental health issues, for further attention.

However, local support services can often decline requests for help, if the individual is in active addiction.

Effective Treatment For High Intake Levels

High drug or alcohol intake can cause liver or pancreas issues, which may need more specialised intervention.

How does the clinic handle these issues? Does the rehab provider have facilities on-site to handle complications?

Why It's Important

Addiction rehab clinics can normally offer treatment for the majority of usage patterns, including high intake.

In a minority of cases, where very high drug/alcohol usage has been maintained over time, more specialist help may be required.

AbbeycareGloucester_HighDrugAlcoholIntake

Key Decisions In Finding Gloucester Addiction Rehab Treatment


Ask any prospective rehab clinic:

  • Duration - How long is most likely to achieve long term sobriety?
  • Costs - When is payment due, what does it include?
  • Location - Close enough for aftercare, far enough away to create useful separation
  • Speed of admission - How quickly can I admit to treatment?
  • Support after treatment - Is this included?
  • Meets your needs - Based on usage frequency, recency, other pre-existing health issues
  • Care plan - How does the clinic make sure you're on track, during your stay?
  • Therapy Programme - Group/Individual?
  • Visits - Are family visits allowed?
  • Access to phones & devices - Not all clinics allow this, check if yours does, and if there are any associated restrictions.

Gloucester Addiction Rehab Treatment Duration


How does your history of alcohol/drug addiction determine how long you stay in rehab?

Frequent alcohol/drug relapses can mean the underlying emotional components of addiction need more work.

e.g. A short detox of 7-14 days can help you feel physically better, but it's unlikely to resolve addictive behaviours and their causes.

A rehab stay of 28 days or longer provides a longer time frame to work on addiction issues in therapy.

Key Questions To Ask A Gloucester Rehab Clinic

  • Is the detox provided, specific to my needs, intake level, and duration of active addiction?
  • How does the programme help me to take advantage of the insights I gain in therapy?
  • How is aftercare provided? Are the costs of aftercare included in the cost of treatment?

Your Responsibilities In Recovery

Rehab is not a "quick fix".

Primary care addiction treatment in a clinic is the most specialist intervention that exists, for alcohol or drug addiction.

An appropriate addiction recovery programme should provide you with all the tools you need to detox, gain therapeutic insights, and set up supports for long term success.

However, you remain responsible for your long term recovery.

This means:

  • Setting realistic goals for your recovery and tracking progress, over time
  • Getting help to anticipate potential triggers and overcome them
  • Following through on the aftercare plan previously set up

And, the reward is....lasting long term recovery!...free from addiction, and its destructive effects in your life, and the lives of those around you.
