Quick Access

Do you live in Derbyshire and suspect you suffer from an addiction? If so, we are here to help. We want to connect you to the best resources to get you off drink or drugs and back into a recovery. Working together with therapy services all over Derbyshire, we can get you back to your regular life, whatever that may have been. We know that normal isn’t normal for everyone… but normal shouldn’t be a life filled with drink or drug use, either.

It’s important to note that we do not provide rehab clinics ourselves, we exist specifically to connect those in need of aid to the services that can grant that aid. Help 4 Addiction was started by a former addict who saw the massive need for firms like ours. Ever since, we act as intermediary experts, able to get your in touch with those that can address your drug or alcohol abuse in a healthy, positive way. Recovery from addiction is entirely possible if you are willing to work hard enough for it. Here at Help 4 addiction, we believe every life is worth that effort.

We do not, however, provide an emergency recovery service here. If you suspect you have taken an overdose and you require more immediate help than we can give, we recommend you get offline and in touch with the Derbyshire emergency services.

What’s the difference Between a Private Rehab Clinic and an NHS Rehab Clinic?

Recovery is fundamentally possible in both an NHS and a Private rehab clinic. It is far more likely that you will successfully quit drugs in a centre, than it is if you try it alone. Statistically speaking, you will find your success rate higher at staying off alcohol or quitting taking drugs for good, if you receive professional intervention. This is why there are so many rehab clinics in Derbyshire, both NHS and otherwise.

Private Rehab centres include all the most modern of health and wellness techniques. They often include a lot of holistic-style methods, too. All of these put together aim at forming new, healthier, habits to stop you turning to drugs or drink when times get tough. In NHS services, you probably won’t have the same array of options in therapy, or the same number of holistic approaches. However, the basics will be the same. You will receive therapies in group form, perhaps for family sessions, and even one-on-one counselling for drug or alcohol abuse. All will help you recover from addiction in Derbyshire – but not all will be as luxurious as the services offered by private rehab clinics.

The main differences between an NHS facility and a Private Rehab Clinics

The cost – the NHS will fund part of your experience, but not all.

The time spent – if you go private, you will likely be in residence at the centre for 28 days or more. If you go outpatient through the NHS, you can receive treatment for up to three months.

The range of optional extras – Private rehab clinics have more choice in therapies or range of things to do while you are there. This is the luxury aspect and, although not necessary for recovery, it does make recovery more stylish.

Aftercare – private rehab clinics tend to have more extensive aftercare programs. However, in the NHS you get aftercare in the form of your local GP, for free.

Reliance on the 12 step program tends to differ. The NHS rely on it more heavily than a private centre, with more options in therapy, might do.

Asides from these, there tends to be no difference in the quality of treatment, nor in the attention to detail you will receive. The important thing is that you get help, regardless of which type of centre you choose. To start your recovery journey contact us now, on 0203 955 7700. We are ready and waiting to be your stepping-stone back to good health and an addiction free life.

Before you begin your recovery proper, you will need to go through the detox process. Whether you need to detox from drugs or alcohol, you will need to go into a centre to do so. There is an option for home detox, but you have to meet certain requirements to get it. Use our online consultation service if you think that you might be more suited to this option.

What is Detox, Exactly?

Detox is what your body has to go through before it can recover from the impact drug or alcohol abuse has had on it. It is the process by which we let the last of the chemicals leave our system in order to get ‘clean’ and start our new life. If the drugs or alcohol never leaves your system and you don’t detox, you will never be completely free of drink or drugs.

Detox is difficult enough that it puts most people off of recovering. Even though the process is difficult, it is still worth doing. You may be able to do it at home or in a centre, but there will be conditions for each. If you live alone, for example, you will need to visit a centre because you will need someone to look after you while you get better. If you prefer to go into a clinic then no problem! Your needs can be attended to, while you get back to full health.

Once detox is over, you can get on with the process of getting back to a normal life. You can break the habits that made you turn to drugs in the first place. You can even get back to the hobbies and pastimes that you had before addiction set in. The world is your oyster once you recover.

Is Derbyshire Known for Drug and Alcohol Problems?

Derby city centre has had issues with drug and alcohol problems for a while now. A massive expose in the Derbyshire Telegraph prompted investigations into the drug use in the city centre of Derby as long ago as in 2017. Back then, it was revealed that they city spent an annual 5 million pounds on the drug and alcohol addiction problems the city regularly faces. Readers were reportedly furious that more is spent on the cleaning up of the drug abuse than is spent in prevention. It is understandable, since studies have shown prevention works better than cure in the case of addiction.

In fact, the Office of National Statistics and the UK government agree that each pound spent on prevention of addiction saves £2.50 of NHS funding in the long run. This means that prevention is 1.5 times more effective, in terms of economics, than curing addiction is.

It is more difficult to ascertain whether or not there is an alcohol addiction problem in the Derbyshire area. This is because alcohol is available so widely throughout the country. England allows alcohol sales to the over 18s by law, which means that anyone over the age of 18 could, potentially, be suffering from an alcohol addiction. Derbyshire county council do offer some support for those in the area suffering from addiction. However, the services are limited and urge you to get in touch with the NHS for further help.

Although there is nothing wrong with seeking help for addiction through the NHS, you might be better coming to us, first.
