Drug Rehab in Essex
Types of Drug rehab treatment
Private or free drug rehab options
Before your recovery can begin you must first decide whether you would prefer private care, or a free drug service. Both options have great benefits, and your choice will ultimately depend on your financial situation as well as the severity of your addiction.
The primary benefit of opting for a private drug rehab is that you are under the supervision of professionals for the duration of your stay. This is necessary if you’re experiencing an unpleasant withdrawal period and need medical assistance.
However, many people are often put off by the thought of having to pay for treatment themselves. Referrals are available through the NHS, however, the wait time for these spaces can be awfully long. Addiction can progress extremely quickly and waiting months for a referral can have devastating consequences.
While there are also free services provided by local councils and charities, these sectors are extremely underfunded and simply can’t provide the same level of care as a private facility. A supervised medical detox along with intensive therapy, which is proven to be the most effective form of treatment.
Outpatients vs Inpatient Rehab Essex
There are a few fundamental differences between inpatient and outpatient drug rehab, however, both options present their benefits.
Inpatient rehab refers to any rehab program that involves you staying at the facility for the full duration of your treatment. At an inpatient rehab, you will receive a medically assisted detox, a range of addiction therapies, as well as all meals cooked for you in house. This type of treatment allows you to focus solely on your recovery, with no external stresses and triggers to contend with.
Outpatient rehab describes any kind of treatment that allows you to go home each day after therapy sessions. This type of treatment is considered convenient for people who are unable to commit to a residential stay. This may be due to work/childcare commitments or for financial reasons. Using a home detox kit for drug addiction, getting online therapy, or seeing a group once a week are all considered to be forms of outpatient treatment. While outpatient rehab is ideal in many ways, continued access to drugs increases the risk of relapse during detoxification, the results of which can be life-threatening.

How does drug rehab work in Essex?
While each rehab has its own individual methods of treatment, most drug rehab facilities in and around Essex follow a similar model in terms of how they work. The first part of treatment is the detoxification process. After prolonged drug abuse, toxins build up in the body, causing uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when you suddenly stop taking them. Your body then begins the natural process of expelling these toxins, this is detoxification. During your stay at a drug rehab, you will be given medication to help you cope with any discomfort. A medically assisted detox is always recommended as some symptoms of withdrawal can be dangerous. The duration of your detox will depend on which drug you are addicted to and how long it takes for you to feel physically well again.
While detox is a crucial part of the recovery process, addiction cannot be overcome without some form of therapy. Drug therapy is designed to help tackle the psychological aspects of addiction and seeks to identify and address any contributing factors. During your drug rehab therapy, you have the opportunity to explore and understand triggers and how to cope with them without turning to destructive behaviours such as substance abuse.
