Drug & Alcohol Rehab Telford

If you think you need help to get off drugs, or if you are sick of being addicted to alcohol, Help4Addiction was made for you. We help those with substance abuse problems get connected to the right resourced for them. Not all rehab clinics will match your needs. Some will only glaze the surface of your expectations; some won’t even make a dent in your addiction – while others will bring success based on what they incorporate.

When you want to find a treatment centre, detox facility, or rehab clinic near you in the Telford area, you don’t know what to expect. You don’t know what you need most, or who to approach for a referral. Arguably worse than this, you need to sort through pages and page of online rehab clinics, or call number after number to find a rehab centre. We negate this part of the process by using our expert staff members, years of experience, and industry based algorithms, to find the Telford rehab care centre that is best matched to your need.

Most people choose rehab clinics based on what is closest to them. This saves money on travel and allows you to be seen as an outpatient, fairly effectively. However, not all rehab clinics will contain the things you need to recover. For example, if you have spent your life living on a farm and your rehab clinic focuses only on inner city pursuits, you might find it doesn’t work and you are back at square one when the course is finished. We are making great strides in changing the rehab clinic industry so that it doesn’t work this way. We want you to find the best rehab near you, for you, without just picking one based on proximity. This way, each of our clients has a better chance at treatment success.

If you are interested in getting help to quit substance abuse, we are here for you. We will compare rehab clinics to find the best match, based on the information you give us. If you find outdoor living is essential to your well-being, then we will find an outdoor-focused rehab clinic. If you want sports and activity, let us place you somewhere with a gym. The key to successfully quitting drink or stopping drugs for good – is synchronicity. The more the rehab clinic caters to your hobbies and lifestyle, the better the chance you will only need to go through this process once.

Call us now, on 0203 955 7700. Help4Addiction is here to make a sober life possible for you. Drink and drugs aren’t everything, even if it sometimes seems like they are. Call us for a no-obligation conversation about your possible options, or when you decide to quit for good. To make things easier, we even offer an online consultation service where you can talk to one of our trained team members at a later date.

What Types of Rehab Are Available in Telford?

There are multiple different ways that a rehab clinic can provide you with treatment for a substance abuse problem in Telford. The first thing you should know about rehab is that it is optional. Nobody will tie you down and force you. That being said, if you don’t go through with it, you are seriously letting yourself down. You are giving up on a future, on a full, rich, rewarding life.

A typical day in a rehab clinic is spent in and out of sessions with a therapist, psychiatrist, or counsellor. They will use different types and styles of therapy, utilizing a range of theories in psychology to help deal with your substance abuse problem from the ground up. When treated this way, drug addiction and alcohol addictions are both easier to overcome as time goes on. They help prevent relapses later in life by teaching you new coping tactics that are healthier.

You will likely be taken through one-one-one therapy courses, which might cover Motivational Interviewing for alcoholism, or CBT for drug use, or some other therapy style. You will definitely be asked to attend group sessions, where you will find the support of peers who are in similar situations to yourself. If you are attending rehab as an outpatient (where you only attend part-time), then you might even be offered online therapy to help out with travel times and costs. Online therapy allows you to get the help you need from talking therapies for addictions in Telford, without actually leaving the house. You can have online therapy on your phone, through Skype, or on a laptop… all you need is a little privacy to take the video call.

You can learn more about online therapy, or both alcohol rehab clinics or drug rehab clinics, through our website. If you are already convinced that you need rehab help to quit your addiction, call us right away, on 0203 955 7700.

Part-Time Rehab or Residential Rehab?

What is the difference between part-time rehab and full-time rehab, anyway? For the most part, a Telford-based full-time rehab clinic will be a private rehab centre. It will also be residential. So in this type of rehab for substance abuse you are removed from both your dealer and your triggers. Other areas they differ are in cost, and in length of time you need to attend. A full-time rehab clinic will always cost more. A part-time, outpatient rehab clinic in Telford will always require you to attend for three months or more, even though they might cost less. Full-time rehab centres usually keep you there for a 28 day minimum, though you may feel you need longer.

We advise all of our clients to think about aftercare from a rehab clinic. If you are going to need ongoing support over the coming year or two to prevent a relapse, you should consider this from the outset. This way you can factor it into the costs of rehab near you. If you are concerned over the cost of rehab, you can see our articles on it for more advice. Don’t forget you can call us on 0203 955 7700 as soon as you are ready to recover from addiction.

Drink and Drug Problems in Telford

Although many consider the Telford area to be a nice place to grow up or live, they don’t know as much about the criminal underworld as our digging has uncovered. In July 2020 a man was arrested near the city with tyres missing from his vehicle. He was almost three times the alcohol limit. If you are drinking so much that you can’t drive a car in the middle of the day without failing a breathalyser test, then you may have an addiction brewing. Get help now, before it develops into something worse. Incidentally, the Shropshire Star has also reported on Telford being named as the tenth worst place in England for drink and drug driving crimes.

Drugs and drug addictions in England are more difficult to keep track of. This is because of their illicit nature. Narcotics aren’t recorded in a way because they are illegal, which means that many statistics can only be guessed at. That being said, we found that drug crimes make up 2.1% of all crimes in Telford. This means that there is evidence of Class A and B drugs in the area via the arrests made. Most alarmingly of all is the annual increase in drug crimes, which currently stands at a 27.6% rise on the year before… In May, police seized Crack Cocaine – on of the most addictive substances known to man – from raids in Telford.

If Telford continues along this dark path of criminal subterfuge, it is going to become one of the places in Britain where nobody wants to raise their kids. Drug and alcohol addictions are frequent, with crimes related to them at an all-time high. If you have become the victim of an addiction, contact us now. It doesn’t have to be the end of everything.

    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.
