If you have an addiction and are considering a rehabilitation programme, then you may be wondering where to turn. The problem is that many NHS services are overstretched, so if you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Leeds, your best option may be to consider a private clinic.
At Action Rehab, we have rehab centres across the UK, so can offer you fast admission, allowing you to begin your recovery journey. There’s no need to delay your treatment any longer, we can often get you a bed within 48 hours, allowing you to begin enjoying life again.
Choosing residential treatment
When you’re considering drug and alcohol rehab in Leeds, you’ll notice a lot of options out there that claim to be the best way to overcome an addiction. Some providers will let you live at home during treatment, going into the clinic during the day, while others will offer things like telephone counselling.
The problem is, living at home when you detox and go through treatment means there’s always the temptation of using alcohol or drugs. You are still around negative influences and it’s easy to fall into bad behavioural cycles. Our experienced team have found that residential rehab gives people with addictions the best possible chance of success.
Action Rehab can help you find a residential rehab clinic where you can safely go through detox and treatment, without any temptations nearby. Some people with addictions like to find a local clinic, while others prefer to go further afield for their addiction treatment, as it feels like a break for them. Whatever you choose, Action Rehab can help you find the right place to stay.
When you come to us for drug or alcohol rehab, our minimum stay is ten days, which allows us to get you through the detoxification process. However, we recommend you stay with us for 28 days. This will give you the best possible chance of success in the long term, as it’ll allow you to go through our comprehensive rehab programme.
What happens at drug and alcohol rehab in Leeds?
When you come to Action Rehab, you may have a drug or alcohol dependency, which means you’ll need to go through a detox. While you may have tried to detox yourself before, it’s much better to do it when medically supervised, as we can provide prescription drugs to help with withdrawal symptoms.
During your time in rehab, you’re supported 24 hours a day, so even if you’ve tried different types of treatment before and relapsed, you may find this level of support is just what you need.
You’ll get intensive treatment such as cognitive behavioural therapy, also known as CBT, which will allow you to tackle the causes of your addiction and start to overcome it.
Going to private rehab
Private rehab is often seen as something for celebrities or the wealthy, but Action Rehab deals with people from all walks of life who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction. While going to private rehab is not the cheapest option, the alternatives such as waiting for NHS treatment simply may not be a choice for you.
In the long term, investing in a stay in a rehab clinic can mean you overcome your addiction for good, so you can start living again. You can also save money by not using alcohol or drugs anymore, so paying for a stay now could mean you can be more financially stable in future.
Whether you stay in the Leeds area for treatment or go further afield, private rehab could be the start of a whole new life, and you get much better options with private treatment.
Staying off drugs and alcohol for life
Action Rehab understand that once you’ve completed drug and alcohol rehab in Leeds, your journey isn’t over. Aftercare is an important part of rehab, and we can help you rebuild your life free of drink and drugs. We often recommend local organisations such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous who are great at helping you on your journey.
Life post-rehab can be tough, and some people find they may need to make big changes to support their new sober lifestyle. For some, this might mean a career change, while others use family therapy to rebuild their relationships.
Some people even move out of their current area so they can escape bad influences. Whatever you choose, we can give you lots of support and an aftercare package that’ll help you stay on track.
Fast admission is important when it comes to rehab. When people with addictions admit they have a problem, it’s important to seek help quickly, or they may go on ‘one last’ binge, or simply change their mind and decide not to seek help.
At Action Rehab, we have access to a number of rehab clinics, so you or your loved one could be in treatment faster than you think. Areas such as Leeds often have very long waits for NHS care, with the most urgent cases skipping the queue, so you may never get to the top. However, when you call our 24-hour helpline, the focus is on getting you help fast, so your addiction doesn’t worsen.
