Getting help to fight an addiction is a vital part of recovering from it. Alcohol addiction, drug addiction, gambling addiction and a myriad of other problems swarm our society today. Staffordshire might be a lovely corner of the globe – but it isn’t addiction (or temptation) free.
When you do fall foul of too much drink or drugs, you should reach out for help. The UK government has made a commitment towards giving National Health Service help to those that suffer from addiction. As such, there are a wealth of sources that you can draw on to aid your recovery. Unfortunately, if you don’t draw on the right rehab sources, you could end up slipping back into the throes of addiction once more. Therefore, the right services are necessary to keep you on the straight and narrow.
If you have taken an overdose it is important that you get in touch with the emergency services. If you need less urgent help but want to get off drink or quit taking drugs for good, we want to hear from you. We can help, just call us on 0203 955 7700 to start getting off drink, today.
There are two main types of rehab for any addiction you might have. Those are inpatient and outpatient rehab clinics. Both have merits and both have flaws. This is just the first layer of rehab centre choice in the Staffordshire area which should give you an indication as to the number of choices you will have. It makes sense to get help when it comes to narrowing all those options down somewhat, based on your needs.
Inpatient rehab is generally held in a rehab centre and will include you staying overnight for a usual period of 28 days. This is a good method for those with nobody to stay with them while they go through the detox process. Alcohol detox and drug detox differ slightly, depending on which drugs are being taken. Specialist staff make the best guardians while you are in the vulnerable position that detox places you in.
When you go for inpatient rehab you stay in the facility. This method has a higher success rate because it removes you from all the bad habits in your life that make you go back to using drugs or drinking. It also gives you 24 hour access to support systems, be it in a physical, emotional, or mental capacity. You are more likely to quit your addictions successfully if you opt for inpatient rehab.
Your rehab centre might see you for anything up to 6 months, depending on your price point and your progress. Some of the best inpatient facilities offer aftercare, which helps give you a support structure to fall back on should you feel like giving in to addiction, after your initial rehab has been completed. This type of rehab is best used by those that have been on drugs or have been addicted to alcohol for a very long time. It is the more ‘hardcore’ of the two options.
We provide personalised support and resources for addiction recovery. Take the first step towards a brighter future today.
When you first quit drinking, you might need to go into a residential rehab centre, or a specialised detoxification clinic – especially if you live alone. When there is nobody to look after you during this troublesome time it is often better to seek help. Should something go wrong during detox you might not be in a good enough position to get help, so you should never quit drinking or drugs cold turkey, on your own, without a medical consultation or help.
That being said, once you have completed those initial stages and the chemicals have left your body, there is no need for you to stay in a full time, inpatient rehab facility if you don’t want to. Some people suffered only mild addictions and find it easier to quit with minimal help. Others are too busy with life or work to take a full 28 days – six months off to go to rehab full time. In these cases, being treated as an outpatient gives you access to all of the same resources you get as an inpatient, but you can go home at night and get on with your life.
Using outpatient rehab clinics you will be able to maintain more of your normal life. It is often a cheaper option (most private rehab clinics tend to be full time inpatient centres) and can last anything from the initial 28 days right up to a year or two. You will need to do around 10 hours a week of treatment and you will get to stay at home – but outpatient treatment for alcohol or drug addiction in the Staffordshire area has a slightly lower success rate.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t opt for outpatient rehab treatment, but it does mean your chances are better as an inpatient. The choice is yours and, with enough determination, it shouldn’t make that much of a difference to you.

Although a lovely place to live, Staffordshire is just as prone to have patches of drug use as any other county. We often, too, forget that alcohol is a drug, and that it is addictive. Worse than addictive, grown adults can buy it over the counter all over the county. With such readily available drugs it is no wonder that the entirety of England and Wales is under the presence of an alcohol problem.
As for drug intake, Staffordshire County Council released plans to tackle the growing crisis on their own pages. As a general rule, their tactics are to direct those suffering from addictions towards charitable services in and around Staffordshire that can help you get clean. According to Derbyshire Live, Staffordshire Police have reported a total of 2,028 drug offences between 2016 and 2019. It is reported that more than half of these were for Cannabis use. Cannabis is a known Class B drug that many still argue is non addictive. However, evidence says otherwise. Outpatient rehab clinics regularly see patients who suffer from reliance on Cannabis use just to get them through the day.
It isn’t a necessary part of your life. Addiction is optional, irrespective of the substance you might be addicted to. You are able, at any moment, to decide you have had enough.
