Drug and Alcohol Rehab Sutton Coldfield
Studies have shown that those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse are most likely to achieve their long-term recovery when they join a residential rehabilitation centre as opposed to using outpatient services.
It’s very difficult to recover from an addiction to alcohol or drugs whilst remaining at home as you’ll likely be faced with many distraction and temptations which could possibly lead you into relapsing.

How do you get started with your residential addiction treatment?
As we mentioned, each person who joins our private drug and alcohol rehab will receive a personalised treatment programme. To help us understand more about your specific needs, we conduct a pre-screening assessment to review your physical and psychological well-being.
We also take this opportunity to get to know you better and get to understand the nature of your addiction. This assessment can take place in person or over the phone and happens after you’ve made your initial contact with our treatment centre.
After we’ve completed your pre-screening assessment, we’ll be able to carefully design the most effective addiction treatment programme for you. If you’re happy to proceed, you could begin your treatment with us as soon as 48 hours after your initial enquiry.
It’s very important to begin your treatment as soon as possible as timing is crucial to maintaining your mental health when awaiting drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Your admissions date will come around soon enough. Our dedicated admissions team will induct you into our rehab for drug and alcohol abuse and ensure that you’re familiarised with your surroundings and settled in before beginning your residential addiction treatment.
Just before you begin your therapy sessions, you will be assessed by one of our inhouse doctors to ensure that you’re fit enough both physically and psychologically to safely undergo your treatment programme.
Once we’re all happy that you can continue your treatment safely, you’ll begin with a drug and alcohol detoxification. This process helps to prepare your body for a future free from substance abuse by gradually reducing your intake of alcohol or drugs in a safe and controlled way.
Our team are on hand 24/7 to manage any withdrawal symptoms you might experience and ease the discomfort if necessary.
It all starts with a phone call or email to our friendly admissions team. Whilst this may feel like a challenge, we can assure you it’ll be the best decision you’ll ever make.
Mental health treatments and support
It’s quite common for someone who is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction to also be suffering from mental health issues; this is also correct vice versa. When an individual is managing both conditions, we refer to this as a dual diagnosis.
If you feel as though this could be describing your condition, there’s no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed, we’re very familiar with treating a dual diagnosis as around 50% of people who have mental health issues, are also susceptible to drug and alcohol abuse.
Mental health treatments and support at our drug and alcohol rehab in Sutton Coldfield are readily available to whoever needs it. We’re fully equipped and motivated to help support your recovery from your dual diagnosis in the most effective way possible.
In some cases, we might be able to identify which of the two conditions is the more prominent and which is secondary. However, it is also possible that the two could be affecting you equally which makes it slightly more difficult to treat but it’s certainly not impossible.
A dual diagnosis is quite common because when someone is suffering from ongoing mental health issues, they’re like to view drug and alcohol abuse as a way to cope with their condition.
Likewise, those who suffer from an addiction to alcohol or drugs, are much more likely to develop mental health issues as a result of the toxins from excessive substance abuse. Dual diagnosis is a vicious cycle which will only worsen over time if it isn’t addressed immediately.
We also offer a family and friend referral or intervention service to encourage your loved ones to take advantage of our rehab for drug and alcohol abuse; help them to create a happier, healthier future for themselves by referring them to our treatment centre.
What happens when you’ve left our drug and alcohol rehabilitation?
Upon completing your residential addiction treatment, which typically lasts around 28 days, you will commence your drug and alcohol aftercare programme which is entirely free for a year.
This will help you through the first 12 months after rehab which can be the most crucial time to remain focused on your recovery goals. We also have a great support network of local groups which we’re happy to recommend such as Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous.
