Drug and alcohol addiction is a disease. If you are diagnosed with any other disease, nobody would expect you to fight it without medical help, but when it comes to addiction, many people believe you can just ‘get over it’ and do it alone.
However, the statistics show that it’s highly unlikely you’ll overcome a substance addiction without help, so you’ll need help from a drug and alcohol rehab in Leicester.
At Action Rehab, we can help you find the best possible addiction treatment to suit your needs, so you can get all the support you need to get on the path to long term recovery.
Drug or alcohol addiction treatment
When you or someone you love is trying to overcome an alcohol or drug addiction, they may feel that they could cut down and become a ‘recreational’ user, or someone who has an occasional drink.
This is not something that is recommended as part of the recovery programme, and the first step of alcohol and drug rehab is the detox phase.
Drug and alcohol detox
One of the main benefits of seeking treatment at an inpatient residential rehab facility is that you will undergo your alcohol or drug detox in a specialised space.
You will receive a medically assisted detox which can take around 7-10 days depending on the severity of your addiction, and detox medication can be prescribed if you are struggling with withdrawal symptoms of are finding it hard to manage.
A medical detox is the safest way to go through an alcohol and drug detox, and doing it with peer support and medical professionals who are available 24/7 makes you much more likely to succeed.
The drug and alcohol rehab treatment centres that we deal with offer abstinence-based treatment, which means you eliminate alcohol or drugs from your life entirely.
While relapse is always something that can potentially occur, when you are in a rehab clinic, you learn how to deal with these relapses and move on with your recovery.
The reason why medical detox is so important is because addicts commonly have an addictive personality which makes it more likely for them to struggle to use substances in moderation.
Over a period of time, you may feel like you’ve got what it takes to have a couple of drinks on a special occasion, but this may lead to further issues.

Understanding the root of your addiction
In order to heal from drug or alcohol addiction, you need therapy to understand what causes it.
When you stay in a rehab centre, you get intensive therapy treatments which allow you to understand your triggers and what may have caused you to relapse in the past.
That’s why we often recommend residential care for those looking to overcome substance abuse. Residential rehab provides you with a treatment programme which aims to provide you with intensive but long lasting treatment in a short period of time.
If you have an alcohol and drug problem, you can get the help you need and start living your life again as soon as possible.
When you go to a rehabilitation centre, you learn how to manage your cravings for drugs and alcohol, from finding things that distract you, to learning the signs of a relapse, you therefore leave with the tools you need for a full recovery.
We work with inpatient residential rehab clinics that offer a combination of traditional and holistic therapies that can help you to achieve this.
Some of the most popular forms of addiction treatment therapies include:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Art therapy
- Individual therapy programmes which involve one-to-one sessions
- Relapse prevention planning
- Daily mindfulness walks
What is the cost of private rehab?
The cost of addiction treatment at inpatient rehabs can be offputting to some people who are seeking addiction treatment.
Although prices vary from rehab to rehab and the length of your stay, you can expect to spend a few thousand pounds for a comprehensive addiction treatment programme.
A good rehab facility will cost roughly £3000+ for treatment. If you choose to stay for a detox only, the price will be much cheaper, however addiction therapy is extremely recommended in order to achieve long lasting recovery.
There are also a number of funding options to help you with the cost of rehab, such as private insurance or company-paid leave for those in high ranking titles.
To learn more about the cost of rehab and to get an accurate estimate, call today on 0151 268 6992.
How long does rehab last?
As touched on above, a rehab programme varies in duration based on your budget and severity of your addiction.
Drug and alcohol detox only programmes for alcohol or drug addiction typically last for 10 days, and involve only the detox process and nutritional cooked meals.
The most recommended length of stay for anyone seeking to overcome alcohol and drug addiction is a 28 day stay, which involves both detox and rehab therapies.
Mental health and addiction
Mental health issues have a strong link with substance abuse, as existing mental health conditions can lead to addiction as a way to self medicate, or mental health issues can be a result of drug and alcohol addiction.
Mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety require treatment in their own right, which is why many of our rehabs offer dual diagnosis treatment to help treat both the mental health problem and addiction.
This involves specialised therapies, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, and can often improve the overall quality of life.
If you think you or a loved one needs help treating their drug and alcohol misuse and drug and alcohol consumption, start the recovery process today by calling our admissions helpline.
Our dual diagnosis treatments involve both psychological treatment and alcohol treatment to kickstart the healing process in our residents.
