Types of addiction treatment and rehab programmes in West Yorkshire
You can identify the most supportive rehab clinics by enquiring which options are available at your treatment centre of choice. There is outpatient treatment in West Yorkshire, and inpatient treatment in West Yorkshire. The length of treatment you embark upon at the treatment centre depends on the nature and severity of your addiction.
Outpatient addiction treatment (day rehab)
Outpatient treatment is also known as day rehab. For this type of addiction treatment, you attend planned sessions at the treatment centre whilst still staying at home. Outpatient treatment involves a mixture of medical drug or alcohol detox, therapeutic support, and peer support. It can be harder for people with drug and alcohol addiction to receive outpatient treatment because support is only available in scheduled sessions. However, it can be well suited to those who have other responsibilities.
Primrose Lodge does not offer outpatient treatment; this addiction treatment can be accessed through the NHS. However, due to limited availability there are long waiting lists.
Inpatient addiction treatment (residential rehab)
Inpatient treatment is also known as residential rehab, where you stay at the addiction treatment centre for the length of your treatment programme. You can speak to the admissions team to determine the duration of your treatment programme according to the level of treatment that you require. Inpatient treatment is often preferred as you can break away from the impulses you face in your daily life, to focus solely on recovery. There are many residential rehab centres in West Yorkshire, each offering a therapeutic environment to aid your recovery.
Why inpatient rehab?
You can receive a mixture of therapies in inpatient rehab, often making it a more favourable option. Your treatment programme can accommodate a range of approaches. Often people find that activities that they had not initially considered support their recovery the most. The rehab centres offer activities including one-to-one therapy, holistic approaches (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), yoga, mindfulness and others), group therapy, medical drug and alcohol detoxes, family support programmes and interactive events.
Family support programmes ensure that your addiction is treated well when you return home, by involving your family and friends in support and guidance sessions. Part of this includes having meetings called conjoints. These meetings are facilitated by trained professionals and involve you and your loved ones. Conjoints have been found to be a key part of a person’s recovery.
Inpatient treatment centres are regulated by the CQC; an independent governing body which assesses the quality of the service. By choosing inpatient treatment, you have control over the quality of centre you complete addiction treatment with, rather than whichever NHS centre has quickest availability. You can view our CQC ratings to help you choose the right addiction treatment centre for you.
In addition to Primrose Lodge, UKAT offers inpatient treatment with all the above benefits at a rehab centre in Yorkshire. If you’re not sure you’re ready for treatment and would like to ask questions, or you’d like to know more about booking into a programme, you can contact our friendly and knowledgeable staff who will put you at ease and answer any questions you have.
What should I expect from a detox in West Yorkshire?
A detox means to remove a substance from a person’s body through abstinence. As the body is adjusting to this, withdrawal symptoms are experienced. These can be difficult physical and mental symptoms that vary in severity depending on the level of addiction. You should seek medical advice prior to detoxing.
Consulting a medical professional before embarking on a drug detox or an alcohol detox ensures that the risk associated with the withdrawal symptoms are effectively managed. A medical detox is offered to those who may experience the most severe withdrawal symptoms. It includes receiving prescribed detox medication to help ease the withdrawal symptoms. At an inpatient rehab, ongoing professional support is available throughout the duration of the detox. This is always the first part of a treatment programme because once a substance is removed from the body a person can better engage in other treatment activities.
Whilst a medical detox is available for both inpatient and outpatient programmes, the level of support is higher in residential rehab. This is because inpatients are away from temptations, and have reassurance of professional support. Outpatients stay at home and visit the rehab centre, which leaves them with the added difficulty of resisting external influences.
Drug and alcohol rehab programme
Drug and alcohol rehab programmes will offer different treatments at different rehab centres. Learning about each approach will allow you to tailor your recovery to your individual outcomes. You can discuss the treatment programmes with your chosen clinic’s admissions team.
UKAT rehab centres include 12-step programmes, which provide a journey to acceptance. Alongside the 12-step programme therapies such as group therapy, one-to-one therapy and holistic therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are included, so you can select which technique works best to help you complete each point. The benefits of these programmes can be viewed on the treatment centre’s weekly schedule.
A non 12-step programme focuses on holistic therapies only; although beneficial for reflection, these treatments don’t focus on a higher target or pinpoint relatable moments between clients, which many find motivate them through recovery.
Is rehab free?
We understand that not everybody is able to access private rehab. There are some free addiction treatment services, such as outpatient rehab, accessible by self-referral through your NHS GP. They may refer those with more urgent treatment needs to the charity Turning Point, or to a detox programme. Inpatient rehab is mainly offered privately, accessed at a cost or through insurance.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The downside to free services
Free services are subject to cuts due to reduced government funding. This has resulted in restricted availability, causing the NHS to be unable to offer holistic services. This can be less effective for those suffering from addiction. These services often have up to 8-month long waiting lists, and the counsellors providing support may not be specialised in addiction.

What happens after a rehab programme?
You may experience emotions such as happiness and fear when completing your rehab treatment programme. Rest assured, recovery continues outside of rehab through aftercare and support groups.
Recovery from drug addiction or alcohol addiction is a long process, which is why most inpatient treatment centres usually offer an aftercare programme for you to remain supported at home. Adjusting to your new lifestyle can be difficult, so clients of Primrose Lodge, or any other UKAT clinic, can still receive advice, peer support and group therapy through the Alumni community to help them through tough times and assist others in the group.
Joining support groups after your rehab programme can offer you invaluable peer support from people experiencing similar challenges to you. They offer a sense of belonging, encouragement, reassurance and the opportunity to build relationships. Some support groups are: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), and SMART Recovery.
Long term recovery from addiction
Completing your rehab programme is the first part of your recovery journey. That first completed step is often the hardest, and utilising the aftercare available will support you through your long-term recovery. The length of the recovery journey can vary from person to person, and Primrose Lodge will provide support continuously.
