Our 14 day treatment program for recovery from drink or drugs allows you to spend a fortnight in either outpatient or inpatient care. This care includes things like therapy and medical supervision that aids you to quit substance abuse, one day at a time, and all while giving you the best chances of success. Better yet, it can be used as a treatment in itself, or as an aid as you go through transitional periods. So if you have just come out of a 28 day residential rehab facility and don’t feel up to real life yet? You can come to us, go into an outpatient 14 day program, and get you on track again.

If you have already decided the 14 day recovery program is right for you, we want you to contact us. You can reach us through our online consultation portal (where we take your details and get in touch at a time that suits you) or you can call us directly, on 0203 955 7700. Whichever way you get in touch – it is going to be the best thing you have done for yourself in a decade. Together we can get you on the road to recovery no matter whether you suffer from alcohol addiction, drug addictions, or whether you are looking for inpatient psychiatric help. Anything is possible with the new future you will make for yourself.

What Makes Help4Addiction Drug and Alcohol Rehab Service Exceptional?

When you contact us, the first thing we will do is ask you a series of detailed questions. The reason we do this is to gain an accurate overview of the rehab treatments most likely to work for you. Unfortunately, not all rehabs have been made the same and there are no national standards for clinics. The best way to choose which is right for you, therefore, is to go through a service like ours.

Help4Addiction will consider your personality, your hobbies and interests, and any therapy you have already done. All of these details help us to home in on rehab clinics that are similar to what you enjoy doing. For example, people who love animals or who come from a rural community in England or Wales might well want to engage with some equine therapy in rehab. Other services don’t tend to take these things into account. It is likely that they will offer you details for the rehab clinics or 14 day treatment programs that are closest to you, instead of looking at those that are best for you, or that give you the highest chances of success.

Another reason our service is considered by many to be the market leaders in the UK for both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, is the non-judgmental attitude we take. Help4Addiction was set up by a former addict who noticed there was a huge gap between the services available and the ability to get help or a referral. We absolutely will not judge you simply because we have come from the same place. Every person in the world has the capability to fall victim to addictions. Fortunately, every person in the world also has the ability to drag them out of it again. We aim to be the judgement-free service to help you do so safely.

If you want to get help either through inpatient services or as an outpatient on our 14 day recovery programs, contact us now. Call us on 0203 955 7700 or feel free to contact us online.

Outpatient or Inpatient? (Meaning and Contents)

You can get help for your addiction – or for drug detox and alcohol detox, or even emotional disorders – through interaction with our services. We have a working knowledge of all the rehab clinics in England, along with what they offer to our clients going into recovery. One of the most common things we hear from clients is the question:

“What’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab centres?”

So let’s clear up any misconceptions.

What is Inpatient?

An inpatient centre is where you go to recover from drugs, alcohol, or from an emotional problem (inpatient treatment for borderline personality disorder in the UK is quite common). When you are treated as an inpatient, you stay in the facility for the length of time your treatment program takes. So if you came to us looking for an inpatient rehab centre near you, we would put you in touch with residential rehab centres. Once you have found the centre of your dreams, you move into their wards and live there for the full two week period.

Inpatient mental health services are often used when a patient goes into psychosis and needs a little help getting back on their feet. In a similar way, those who want to learn how to stop drinking, or who want to get into drug rehab, can move into the centre for a 14 day recovery program.

The Benefits of Inpatient Treatment for 14 Days

Why do things this way? Let’s discuss the benefits of inpatient treatments in the UK. Some of the best reasons to be seen as an inpatient for rehab treatment include:

  • You can be seen as an inpatient for mental health problems as well as addictions.
  • You are removed from your triggers and from your drug dealer or source of substances.
  • You are in an environment where others are going through what you are going through, and you are in that environment 24/7.
  • You are more likely to succeed in quitting the first time you go into rehab if you choose to do so as an inpatient. Statistics from America also suggest that this success rate varies from centre to centre because there is no definitive guidelines for rehab clinics – much the same as our issues here in the UK.
  • You will have medical supervision at all times should you have a mental break or should something happen to thwart your recovery.

As you can tell from the points above, inpatient care for drug rehab and alcohol rehab offers the maximum possible chances of recovery to our clients. If you are interested in inpatient help, we want to know about it. Contact us today to get off drink or stop using drugs, on 0203 955 7700.

What is Outpatient?

So what’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient treatments? There aren’t all that many differences in terms of treatment types or therapies offered. You will still be given medical supervision and may even be given medication to make withdrawal and the symptoms associated with quitting substance misuse easier to handle. Generally speaking, both inpatient and outpatient 14 day programs will help you to quit drink or stop using drugs, but they both do it in residential and non-residential capacities. Put simply: the main difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is whether or not you get to go home at night.

The Benefits of Outpatient 14 Day Programs

There are many options in both inpatient and outpatient care for substance misuse or emotional disorders. Either is useful, but one will suit you more than the other. With that in mind, here are the main benefits of choosing an outpatient program over inpatient services:

  • When you are an outpatient you can come and go as you please.
  • You will get the same group therapy and one-on-one therapy that you would get from an inpatient centre.
  • You will be given medications to help manage the symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal.
  • Outpatient care is preferred by those who cannot afford to take a fortnight off work and by those who are raising a family and can’t find a fortnight’s worth of childcare.
  • If you are worried about the cost of rehab, opting for an outpatient service is often cheaper since you don’t have your room, meals, and board to consider.

Asides from the benefits of each type of rehab care, they are incredibly similar to one another. Some disadvantages to outpatient treatment for substance misuse is that you are less likely statistically to quit first time. Another disadvantage is that you are not removed from the triggers that made you turn to drink and drugs to begin with. Outpatient treatment often takes longer as well, since you are technically completing the 14 day treatment program as a part-time course.

What your Rehab Clinic Offers During 14 Day Treatments

Since we will tailor our service to meet what you require from an adequate 14 day treatment program, we can’t specifically state what your choice in centre will include. That being said, there are some standard expectations that they ought to cover.

You can definitely expect to find therapy sessions when you attend any kind of rehab. You might have group therapy on a daily basis to check in and bring you the peer support you have been craving. You might expect to find inpatient drug facilities near you that focus on one-to-one therapies. These centres tend to use processes like motivational interviewing or cognitive behavioural therapy to examine why you use drink or drugs and get to the bottom of how you stop using them!

You should also expect your rehab centre to have some leisure facilities – although what those are is up to you. Some recover best in a rehab clinic with a gym, some just need a library or a ping pong table. Your chosen centre may or may not offer family sessions to examine and improve your relationships. This is all true of those who go to join a 14 day rehab program for mental health issues, too. One of the best things about choosing the 14 day treatment plans is that you can take the fortnight off work or commitments as a holiday without having to deal with the stigma of taking the full month off.

Other things you might expect from rehab centres involve being supervised by a qualified medical professional. When you have an addiction to a heavy substance like Heroin, there is always a chance that your health will be adversely affected when you quit. Having that medical supervision is great for your peace of mind, while simultaneously guaranteeing your safety. In addition, those same medical staff are on hand to provide you with medicinal relief, should you need it.

There are multiple benefits to taking part in a fourteen day treatment program, all of which are in your best interests. When you consider the range and breadth of help that is on offer, recovery can be less like hard work and more like a holiday… although you will still have to fight those withdrawal symptoms by yourself.

    Detoxification (detox) is the medical intervention required for someone who is physically dependent to drugs or alcohol. If required, medical detoxification would be the first step taken in residential rehab. Detox is used to prevent uncomfortable and dangerous (even fatal) withdrawals symptoms resulting in suddenly becoming abstinent from alcohol/certain drugs.

    The goal of a medical detox is to aid in the physical healing required following long term addiction and rid the body of all together of substance whilst providing a cushion for unpleasant symptoms of withdrawals. Detox is not considered the whole treatment for drug/alcohol addiction and it is always recommended that a comprehensive rehabilitation program is used along side to help maintain long term abstinence.

    Medication is often required for alcohol detox. If you are dependent on alcohol and experiencing withdrawal symptoms it is vitally important to seek medical advice prior to stopping. There is a long list of medications used when treating alcohol addiction and the exact medication given to an individual will depend on their needs/medical history. Some of these include;

    • Chlordiazepoxide (Librium)
    • Lorazepam (Ativan)
    • Diazapam (vailium)

    Librium and Valium are the most commonly used detox medication in the UK. All medication used to help with alcohol detox have been proven to help reduce the effects of withdrawal symptoms.

    There are also a number of drugs recombined by the NHS to help treat alcohol misuse. Some of these include:

    • Naltrexone
    • Disulfiram (Antabuse)
    • Nalmefene
    • Acamprosate (campral)

    Medication is always required for heroin detox. For someone suffering from heroin addiction, the thought of detoxification (detox) can be exceptionally daunting. Withdrawal symptoms from opiates, such as heroin, can be severe and include pain, vomiting, nausea and shaking.

    There are different ways that heroin detox can be carried out, most usually either ‘maintenance therapy’ or ‘full medical detox’.

    Attempting to switch from heroin to a heroin substitute, usually on a controlled prescription, is known as Maintenance therapy. Subsites used are most often methadone or buprenorphine.

    A full medical detox from heroin will always be carried out in a residential rehab setting and will allow the individual to switch form heroin to a substitute and slowly withdraw completing treatment free of all substances. Someone using a heroin substitute can choose to have a full medical detox at any time, however detoxing substances such a methadone can often add to the length of detox required. Drugs most commonly used to fully detox from heroin are, Subutex, Suboxone and Methadone. Much like alcohol, the exact drugs used will be dependent on the individuals needs/medical history.

    Once detoxed from heroin the risk of overdose is much higher following relapse due to tolerance following withdrawal.

    The length of treatment in a residential rehab depends on a number of elements. Some substances require longer periods of detox than others.

    Private paying patients will also often choose a length of stay that suites their therapeutic and financial needs. As a rule, a full treatment program in a rehab is considered to be 28 days (often referred to as a month), however, treatment is offered in several different ways and lengths starting at 7 days.

    Treating alcohol addiction will always require a minimum of 7-10 days, this would be considered the detoxification (detox) faze. The length required for treating drug addiction can vary drastically depending on the substance being used. Detox for Heroin addiction is generally around 14 days minimum, with more time required if substances such a methadone are being used. Treating prescription drug addiction can often take the longest. The time required for treating gambling addiction, eating disorders and sex addiction will be based on the individuals needs.

    Rehab programs can be as long as an individual requires but primary treatment is normally caped at 12 weeks, with the offering for further secondary and tertiary treatment thereafter.

    *based on average rehab stays, everyone will vary dependant on needs and medical requirement/history.

    There is no need for your employer to know that you are seeking help for trauma and addiction unless you choose to involve them with the process. All employers should have a policy that explains what you do if you cannot come to work due to illness – illness to include treating alcohol addiction/treating drug addiction.

    If your work absence extends over 7 days your employer is likely to require an official statement of fitness to work which would be obtained from your GP. This would need to supply evidence of your illness as well as any adjustments required for returning to work, fazed return or reduced hours, but does not need to specify in detail the reason why you have been absent.

    If you are absent from work for 7 days of less, for example entering rehab for a detoxification (detox) on a Saturday for 7-10 days taking a full week away from work, you can self-certify your illness by letting your employer work you will not be attending work for that period of time. Exactly how an individual would do this would be dependent on a specific companies’ policies on taking sick leave.

    Any time longer than 7 days it is likely an employer will require a note from the individuals GP certifying their sickness and a fit note on return. Most companies have a clearly outlined policy on sickness and receiving sick pay so the exact requirement can vary. A rehab will always be willing to advise on time off work.

    How much does rehab cost is a very frequently asked question. The cost of treatment can range from £1,000 per week upwards depending on the place, with luxury rehab being the most expensive.

    There are free options available on the NHS but the waitlist of those looking for free treatment is longer than that for privately paying patients. Some private health insurance policies will cover treatment in some rehabs around the country.

    Choosing the right rehab centre will often be based on priced but it is important to follow guidance on the most suitable treatment centre for an individual’s needs which our expert team of advisers are on hand to offer.

    There are certainly pro’s for both treatment near by and traveling for treatment with one of the most asked question being should I get rehab near me? There are rehabs all over the UK and around the world that all offer expert programs, let’s look at how to choose a rehab.

    Local treatment

    Being close to home gives certainly has benefits. Visitors are normally permitted in rehab following the first 7 days stay, therefore if an individual is in treatment for a length of time longer than that being local will make it easier for loved ones to visit.

    Most rehab centres will also provide a full aftercare plan for someone following treatment, this will include ongoing aftercare in the specific treatment centre. Living close by can make it easy to take full advantage of ongoing aftercare. There can also often be the option for ongoing care with an individual therapist, again being close by will allow that treatment to be carried out face to face.

    Some individuals wish to be local but are willing to look broader, for instance the greater city of residence (London, Manchester, Liverpool, etc)

    Treatment Away

    Getting treatment away from home can be very appealing to some. Being out of the local area makes it a lot harder to just walk out of treatment as resources locally are unknown. Some also take comfort in knowing that they are not near home and focus more on treatment.

    As the price for treatment can vary so much from one residential treatment centre to another, private paying patients often would rather travel to keep the cost down. Those using private health insurance may also have to travel to find a treatment centre covered in their policy.

    When opting for treatment away from home this can be anywhere in the UK and also abroad. Aftercare can still be carried out and very successful using tools such as The Online Rehab.

    There is no right or wrong when choosing where to go to residential rehab, but our expert advisors are always on hand to help provide information on all possible options.

    Whilst millions of people in the UK have taken recreational drugs (amphetamine, cannabis, cocaine, crack, crystal meth, GHB, heron, ketamine, methadone, and prescription drugs) and drank alcohol not all become ‘addicted’. Most recent reports show that 279,793 individuals were in contact with drug and alcohol misuse services in the last year with over half of that being from opiate addiction and a quarter for alcohol.

    There are several risk factors invoiced in addiction and those using drugs and alcohol socially, simply take the risk. These risks are as follows;

    Tolerance – basically, if a substance is used repeatedly an individual’s tolerance to it will build. This will result in more of the same substance being required to get the same effect. In the long run this can easily lead to addiction and physical dependencies.

    Environmental risks – these can include influences such a peer pressure and stress as well as physical or mental abuse of an individual (particularly as a child). Overall, those who live with frequent pressures and stress are more likely to reach for a substance to cope and are therefore at higher risk of becoming addicted.

    Drug type – it is very well known that certain drugs are simply more addictive than others. Using substances such as heroin increases the risk of becoming addicted for need to ‘chase’ a high as well as physical dependency.

    Drug administration – how a drug is administered can affect its addictive qualities. A drug injected rather than smoked or snorted will release a quicker and more intense high thus making it psychologically (and in many cases physically) more addictive.

    Biological factors – it is now widely reported that being an addict is not only psychological but also biological. This includes your genetic makeup, mental health, sex and age. It is also reported to be 8 times more likely for the child of an addict to become an addict themselves.

    Its believed that addiction is approximately half genetics and therefore some are 50% more likely to become addicted than others.

    How do you help a loved one trapped in addiction?

    The first step is to help and encourage the individual to become willing to accept help. They do not need to be shouting this off the rooftops, but they do need to be willing to go into treatment. There are ways to help someone become willing to get treatment for alcohol or treatment for drugs.

    Set boundaries – set boundaries and stick to them. Once you have laid them out follow through with whatever consequences you have set however hard it is.

    Stop finances – if you are financially supporting someone stopping these finances can be the quickest way for the addict needing to ask for help. With no money to acquire a substance an addict’s options become very limited.

    Intervention – getting together with other family members/friends/colleagues and staging an intervention is often very successful in the fist stage of acceptance and gaining an admission to residential rehab.

    You can’t make them quit, this can lead to dangerous withdrawal. Boundaries are very important in helping someone become willing to get help. Unfortunately you cannot do someone’s recovery for them and without self-motivation it is very hard to make it work.

    The next step is to call our highly trained advisers 0203 955 7700.
