Drug and Alcohol Rehab Smethwick
Alcohol and drug addiction is complex and is not limited to one specific reason. Often, addiction is caused by numerous factors.
Life traumas, mental illness and poor social decision-making are common factors of addiction. Once addiction takes hold, trying to remove it from your life may feel mammoth and unreachable. However, it does not have to be this way.
When addiction begins, there will be a specific factor that has caused your addiction. Certain risk factors do increase the likelihood of addiction, therefore you must consider:
- Family history of substance abuse
- Family issues
- Peer pressure
- Drugs or alcohol to fill a void or to temper mood or energy
- Childhood abuse or neglect
- Mental health disorders (anxiety/depression)
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Regaining your control in life is the most important thing when you’re dealing with alcohol or drug rehabilitation. The biggest obstacle to tackle is overcoming the mental conditions associated with addiction.
Thankfully, private rehab offers you an extensive and bespoke plan which tackles every element of addiction. There are various treatment options available and the benefits are plentiful.
To weigh up the pros and cons, we have made a concise, informative list to use as a point of reference before you decide upon rehab:
- Helps your physical and mental health
- Build a community
- Learn beneficial life tools
- Meet new people
- Gain new perspectives
- Has a high success rate
- Safe, secure and luxurious environment
- Continued support
- Spending time away from family/friends
- Prices of certain rehabs programmes
However, on the positive side, the disadvantages are in fact incredibly easy to mitigate. You can look at financing options which may include health insurance to support you.
Secondly, your friends and family may not be physically with you at all times, but you do not have to feel alienated.
A lot of programmes include your friends and family which are vital to your progress. At private rehab, your programme can be modified to accommodate changes in your needs and this includes family counselling sessions and support groups.
Why Do I Need to Attend Group Therapy?
Group therapy is a psychotherapy that allows you to exchange views, opinions, worries and more around a common problem – in this case, addiction. The practicality of these sessions brings multiple positive effects to your life.
Group sessions provide you with a larger scope of help that is not always possible with individual sessions alone. It is synonymous with strength and support, creating a community which allows you to feel part of something much bigger.
Group therapy sessions are based on the dynamics and interactions between participants. It is a necessary step and is undertaken in a relaxed environment. You do not need to feel shy, or worried, but rather this is a collaborative effort that is non-judgemental and is undertaken by a professional team.
Many people claim that group sessions give them a chance to hear others’ stories, which helps make them feel less alone and more able to make change.
Alongside group therapies, you will participate in individual therapy sessions, psychotherapies and other forms of support that will all work collectively. There is no need to face addiction alone.
There are numerous forms of treatments readily available to you at Cassiobury Court.

Frequently Asked Questions
Professional rehabilitation works in a multitude of different ways. The blend of physical and psychological addiction treatment alongside being in an environment that is detached from your normal day-to-day life are all critical to how rehab works. However, for rehabilitation to truly work, you must be prepared to make necessary changes to yourself. If you’re ready to change your life to overcome your addiction, then drug and alcohol rehab will work for you.
The dangers associated with detoxification which we touched upon before mean that you should seriously reconsider trying to detox by simply going cold turkey at home. Addicts have previously lost their life due to the side-effects of alcohol withdrawal; by entrusting your recovery to the safe hands of medical professionals means that you will be able to go through withdrawal as safely as possible.
It is hard to say exactly how long you would need to stay at a recovery centre without knowing more about the severity of your addiction. However, when it comes to standard inpatient rehabilitation here at Cassiobury Court, we typically recommend that you are with us for around twenty eight days. This can seem like a long time, but the benefits of a longer, more intensive course of addiction treatment are paramount.
