Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I’m addicted to drugs?

If you think you're addicted to drugs or alcohol, you need to get help immediately. You can schedule an appointment with your doctor or call us on 0808 258 3601 for confidential help and to discuss treatment options.

What is Drug Rehab?

A drug rehab centre provides comprehensive care to those who struggle with chemical dependencies like alcoholism and other addictions. These centres offer support groups, counselling, education about the disease, individualized programs, and more. While many people think they need to go through detox first, this isn’t always necessary. Some facilities provide group therapy sessions immediately after admission. Others allow patients to begin their program in full-time residential settings.

The goal of drug rehab is to teach patients how to manage life without addictive substances. Patients learn to identify triggers, practice self-care skills, and develop coping mechanisms to deal with stress. They also work toward developing healthy relationships and finding meaningful employment.

How long does it take a person to overcome their addiction?

According to psychologists, while it may take approximately 21 days of conscious and consistent effort to create a new habit, it takes far longer to break an existing habit. Overcoming addiction can take months or even years. Recovering from addiction is a lifelong process where you form new habits and manage triggers to avoid relapsing.

What is the success rate of addiction rehab and treatment?

Treatment success rates differ dramatically from one facility to the next and are dependent on a variety of factors. The National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse of the NHS published a report in 2012 showing that the best-performing treatment facilities had a success rate of 60%–80% in terms of clients sustaining abstinence five years after treatment.

How important is relapse prevention?

Avoiding relapse is obviously key to recovery from addiction – but many people experience relapse before going on to achieve long-term abstinence. Speak with an addiction specialist about the significance of relapse and any information regarding relapse prevention during recovery.

Can people with drug addictions be forced into rehab?

No addiction treatment can hope to be successful unless it is willingly engaged in, and no addict should be coerced into treatment – even court-ordered rehab is unlikely to have any long-term benefit unless the addict genuinely wants to overcome their addiction.
