Drug and Alcohol Rehab Ilkeston
What Happens in Private Rehab?
When patients enter private drug and alcohol rehab, they describe it as a sanctuary, a place to get well again and break their destructive habits. Private rehab is a private, healing community managed by a team of addiction professionals ranging from medical doctors, psychiatrists and specialist addiction staff.
The sole aim of rehab is to help people get off drugs or alcohol – for life, not just for the duration of their stay. We give patients the tools and techniques to embrace a life without drugs and alcohol through detox, intensive counselling, and relapse prevention techniques.
All good rehab centres should provide a clear recovery pathway for patients: detox, counselling and aftercare.
Patients stay with us for around a month, but some stay longer – sometimes up to 90 days if they require more intensive support, but 28 days is the standard length of treatment.

Specialist Treatments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Our private rehab clinic in Ilkeston provides residential treatment for various alcohol and drug addictions. We treat illegal and prescription drug addictions from cannabis, cocaine, codeine and alcohol.
In simple terms, detoxification means stopping taking drugs or alcohol. We always recommend that people suffering from addiction never detox alone, as the withdrawal effects can be deadly.
Drug and alcohol detox is safe when carried out at a rehab centre and monitored by trained medical professionals. All rehab patients must complete detox before starting therapy, which can be tough. Addicts have become reliant on toxins in their bodies, and during detox, they’ll experience uncomfortable physical side effects when they withdraw. The good news is that alcohol and drug detox only lasts for around 7-10 days.
We use a variety of therapies to help patients recover. We use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) at our Ilkeston clinic – a type of counselling suited to successfully conquering addiction. You will be assigned a personal counsellor who specialises in addiction, and you’ll regularly meet, building a trust-based relationship.
CBT investigates how thoughts, feelings and actions are interlinked. Throughout your counselling sessions, you’ll learn techniques to help you navigate the world and to help you make the right choices.
People often abuse drugs or alcohol for a reason, usually a deep-rooted fear or trauma. CBT looks into the reasons behind the action, giving you the techniques to change negative thoughts to positive ones, helping you avoid triggering future situations.
Feelings of shame and isolation often characterise addiction. All patients are encouraged to attend group therapy to share experiences, making them feel less alone. Studies have shown that group work is highly beneficial to recovery and often gives patients ‘lightbulb moments’ when they learn addiction stories that are similar to their own. Group therapy also creates a sense of community, as addicts often live isolated lives. Working in a group helps people rediscover people skills, respect and how to socialise with others.
Is Private Better Than Outpatient Rehab?
NHS services often don’t treat the additional issues surrounding addiction, namely mental health – but private rehab is different. Although local NHS drug treatment programmes offer excellent service, the waiting list is long, and treatment options are limited. Patients have instant access to therapies to suit their needs when they need them most.
Private rehab offers a choice. Many people don’t want to complete rehab near where they live or run the risk of running into friends or work colleagues – especially if they want to keep their addiction private. Our rehab centre in Watford is ideal for those seeking rehab in a safe space away from home in Ilkeston.
Those seeking addiction treatment often take a break from home and live at a rehab centre, becoming an inpatient. Rehab centres offer a welcoming retreat away from the stresses of everyday life. Rather than returning home every day as an outpatient, all activities at private rehab are designed to get people healthy again.
Despite having a daily structured schedule, inpatients still enjoy free time to relax but feel reassured that they can speak to staff 24/7.
Support After Rehab
Many patients find it challenging but highly beneficial to stay in rehab, but the true test starts when they return home. Patients often leave our rehab centre feeling motivated and determined to stay drug or alcohol-free. But familiar places and people often trigger drug or alcohol use. That’s why we offer a programme of aftercare support to aid with relapse prevention.
Our recovery support workers help you plan life outside rehab while you’re still an inpatient. You’ll work together to set up a new daily routine to aid your recovery and have a transparent support system to turn to if things get tough. You’ll learn new ways of living, set goals, and identify places and people to avoid to give you the best chance of recovery.
In the run-up to departure, we go through the strategies you’ve learnt in counselling to prepare you for real-life situations and equip you with information to help you make the right healthy living choices.
Patients who stay with us for 28 days receive a year of free aftercare. You can attend support groups and family therapy, access counselling, and ring our dedicated 24-hour phone line if you need motivation or guidance.
Recovering from addiction is a long-term process. We work with patients to set goals for life outside and celebrate recovery milestones no matter how small they are.

Frequently Asked Questions
There’s no right answer to this question as what works for one person may not work for another person in the same way. The choice between residential rehab and outpatient treatment is personal to the individual. We can, however, advise that residential rehab generally has a higher rate of successful recoveries and is recommended for people suffering from a severe drug or alcohol addiction. Outpatient treatment provides more flexibility as you remain at home whilst visiting the rehab clinic each day, whereas with residential treatment, you’ll stay overnight at our drug and alcohol rehab Rothesay.
Yes, you are permitted to bring your mobile phone with you to our drug and alcohol rehab Bethnal Green. We do provide free Wi-Fi; however, the use of your phone is not permitted during your therapy sessions. During your downtime, we encourage you to keep in touch with your friends and family, although we do ask that you refrain from taking calls in communal areas and adhere to our confidentiality and social media policy at all times.
Any condition such as drug addiction, alcohol addiction, cocaine addiction, or cannabis addiction will affect every individual differently. However, there are some common signs to look out for which will indicate that you need to seek professional support immediately. These include frequent mood swings, always feeling tired, unable to say no to the substance, being dishonest, appearing pale and unwell, consuming more alcohol or drugs to feel a stronger high/intoxication, and being less interested in activities or socialisation.
