Inpatient & Outpatient Rehab in Essex

Depending on your addiction and any pre-existing medical conditions, you will either be an inpatient or outpatient. An inpatient is someone who stays in rehab accommodation; an outpatient is someone who enters rehab but does their detox at home.
If you have pre-existing disorders, such as these:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bulimia
  • Anorexia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Gambling addiction
  • Panic attacks
  • PTSD
  • OCD

It is highly likely you will be an inpatient so you can receive the specialist care you need during your alcohol rehab in Essex or drug rehab in Essex.
For prescription drugs and street drugs, the majority of people will be an inpatient because a rehab clinic environment is the safest option. It also greatly restricts the patient’s ability to get hold of the substances they are addicted to.

If you would like to know if your addiction would be best treated as an inpatient our outpatient, we can provide advice if you call us on 0800 118 2892. Otherwise, you will have to wait until your medical assessment to find out.

Outpatients tend to suffer from alcoholism only, and most doctors are happy for their patients to perform a home alcohol detox in Essex. This is because the withdrawal symptoms are less afflicting than street drug addictions. However, this requires very strong willpower, since a pop to the shops is all it takes to relapse.

Which is the best type of rehab for you? For alcohol treatment in Essex, you could be an inpatient or outpatient. For drug rehab in Essex, we recommend you be an inpatient for the simple fact it provides the safest possible environment.

What Does Rehab Involve?

First of all, you should speak to us so we can recommend the right Essex rehab clinics based on your circumstances. Our advice is completely confidential, and we will answer all your questions to help you understand your options.

Alcohol Detox Essex Gym and outside area

After you have chosen a clinic, the first stage of rehab is the detox stage, however before this starts, you will undergo a physical and psychological evaluation to determine your physical and mental health. This is necessary to create a treatment plan. It will take place at the clinic with an admissions coordinator, a therapist and a nurse.

Your treatment plan will take into account what you are addicted to, the extent of your addiction, your age, and any pre-existing medical conditions. Because everyone is affected by addiction differently, your treatment plan will be unique.

Once you are admitted into rehab, the detox stage begins. Detoxing from drugs or alcohol involves clearing the body of these substances. The process can take anywhere from a few days or weeks to a few months. The risk of relapse is high during this period, which is why we recommend inpatient rehab above outpatient rehab.

A drug detox in Essex or alcohol detox in Essex is never an easy process, but with the right help and support you will get through it.

To ease your withdrawal symptoms, you’ll be prescribed withdrawal medication and you’ll attend therapy sessions to help you overcome your feelings. This is an important part of the rehab process because detoxing does not address the psychological, social, and behavioural side of addiction. This is dealt with by way of therapy.

When you enter rehab in Essex, you will:

  • Undergo a physical and psychological assessment
  • Be prescribed withdrawal medications
  • Go through a detox
  • Receive care and support during your detox
  • Attend therapy sessions to change your behaviour
  • Have regular check-ups with a doctor to monitor your progress

After the detox period, you will be asked to check in with the clinic periodically so they can monitor your progress. It is likely you will still be prescribed withdrawal medication, which you will be weaned off slowly, until you are drug free.

If you’re ready to start your journey to recovery with an Essex rehab clinic, or you have a loved one who is ready to get help, a call to the Serenity helpline on 0800 118 2892 will be beneficial to help you take the next steps.
