Drug rehab refers to a specialised drug rehabilitation facility that caters for the treatment of addictions. Treatment within a drug rehab may include a medicated detox if there is physical dependence. This should be an important factor in your consideration.
At Green Valley, we are able to recommend a variety of treatment options. This includes private treatment, as well as charity-run and NHS addiction treatment.
A psychological programme will then address the behavioural and habitual patterns of drug addiction. This will be delivered through group therapy, one to one counselling thought and feeling groups, anxiety and anger management classes, educational workshops, diary-keeping, reflection groups, and fellowship meetings.
Drug rehab clinics may also offer holistic therapies such as acupuncture, art therapy, reflexology, equine therapy, yoga and many more to help with withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
We treat every kind of substance addiction in our drug rehabilitation clinics. Each treatment programme is tailored to individual needs, no matter the type or severity of the addiction.
Other types of addiction such as heroin and prescription drug addiction can lead to severe and uncontrollable behaviours and lifestyle choices that again can be challenging to overcome alone. The psychological and medical care within clinics offers a safe and supportive environment for these addictions to be treated.
When Should Someone Seek Drug Rehab Help?
Drug rehabilitation treatment can be accessed by anyone who suffers from drug addiction. For some individuals, they may recognise when their drug use has become uncontrollable and understand that they need help.
- For others, it may take a nudge in the right direction for them to recognise and become agreeable to help. Green Valley has a wealth of experience with situations such as this and can help you to support your loved one in making the right decisions.There are a number of warning signs that suggest someone would benefit from drug rehab. Their drug use may be affecting their social life and relationships in a negative manner.They may be irritable, secretive, and dishonest to those around them. Their drug use may begin to have a negative impact on their work. Financial problems may arise due to the excessive usage of substances.
Normal lifestyle patterns and behaviour are affected and the person will begin to ‘miss out’ on things in order to satisfy their addiction. Sometimes the health and psychological well-being of someone may begin to concern themselves or those around them.
In severe and well-established cases of drug addiction, the person may begin to take part in criminal activities to fund their addiction. This includes stealing from family members.

Understanding the Drug Rehab Process
Drug rehab is designed to make quitting drugs easier for people suffering from addiction. The entire rehabilitation process can take five to eight weeks, up to several months to a year as determined by case acuity.
Below we outline the general three-stage process for all our drug rehab options:
The first thing most rehab centres do is plan out the detox for the patient. At this stage, the primary goal is to remove all of the substance from the body.
This procedure puts stress on the brain, which recently relied on the drug to function. Ceasing substance intake forces the brain to restore chemical equilibrium. Withdrawal symptoms will appear during this process.
Withdrawal symptoms reflect a person’s drug habit. In cases of serious addiction, withdrawal symptoms might be fatal.
Rehab centres are prepared for the worst with experienced medical staff on standby. They will monitor a patient’s health throughout the detox process and prescribe medication for health or comfort.
Inpatient treatment can aid people with rough addiction. Doctors can provide personalised medical treatment for inpatients. Outpatient therapy works well for people who have obligations that prevent residential therapy, or for milder addictions.
They have to manage their lives and drub rehab. People seeking treatment for addictions can admit themselves to a hospital for medical treatment via a partial hospitalisation programme.
After Care / Maintenance
For this reason, once detoxification concludes you will begin your programme of psychological and emotional therapy where old negative beliefs are replaced with positive coping strategies. This will mean you are less likely to relapse when you leave our centre.
Aftercare programmes provide the support that people need to stay clean after rehab. Peer groups allow patients to band together to offer encouragement.
Sober living communities offer a commune with other patients recovering from addiction. Patients can also attend 12-step programmes and other check-ups to continue finding the support they need.
