What Is Rehab?

Residential rehabilitation (or “rehab”) is the name given to a dedicated facility where addiction treatment is provided, and to the treatment itself – usually comprising both a detoxification (“detox”) phrase and a period of therapy. At rehab, patients benefit from a peaceful, attractive, confidential setting in which they can concentrate upon their recovery, away from their usual environment of substance abuse, and confident that details of their condition will not become common knowledge.

It is nowadays generally accepted that rehab provides the most effective treatment of addiction, in terms of producing permanent abstinence on behalf of the addict. Rehab’s holistic approach, addressing both the immediate challenge of physical dependency (via detox) and the more pernicious problem of psychological addiction (which needs to be countered by therapy) contrasts with a plethora of treatment methods addressing only one aspect (typically physical dependency) of addiction; the latter is unlikely to result in a permanent recovery since the underlying causes of addiction remain untouched.

How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?

The sooner an addict can reach out for help, the sooner they can be in treatment: every day that passes without combating addiction is another day in which an addict risks succumbing to overdose, a fatal accident, or an act of violence fuelled by substance abuse.

While the NHS provides a good range of high-quality addiction treatment services – including rehab – places are invariably limited and waiting times can be distressingly lengthy (especially in highly populated areas such as Greater London and neighbouring counties).

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction and are desperate for help, you may not wish to take such risks; instead, why not explore some of the private options which are available to you? Call 0800 024 1455 now to discuss next steps.

Advantages of Private Rehab

As mentioned above, rehab provides a peaceful, secluded, secure and confidential setting in which an addict can focus fully on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of the outside world. Upon entering rehab, an addict will embark on detox, assisted by highly experienced medical personnel there to assure that withdrawal is as safe and as comfortable as possible (which may involve the provision of medication).

After detox, the addict will engage therapy – both one-to-one and group – aimed at addressing the root causes of their addiction, as well as at constructing defence mechanisms against relapse; they will also receive bespoke dietary and fitness plans and may benefit from an array of other resources available.

Following a stay in any quality rehab, a patient will receive free aftercare (for up to a year): it is important to remember that recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is ongoing and may not be a smooth and easy process. Aftercare can help reduce the risk of relapse and provide the recovering addict with vital support at critical junctures.

What Does Rehab Cost in Berkshire?

The cost of private rehab can vary significantly by treatment programme, and depending on which of a variety of optional extras are selected. As a rough guide, standard costs for rehab in and near Bracknell range from between £5,500 and £11,000 per month, though the cheapest rehab treatment can start from as little as £834 per week. For more details, call 0800 804 4755.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options Bracknell

Some addicts feel that private rehab is not for them – sometimes for reasons of cost, or because they are unable to spend time away from family and/or work obligations. If this applies to you, there is no reason to give up hope: certain NHS and charity resources can be found in Bracknell and across Berkshire. Consult your GP to discuss which of these resources might be most appropriate for your specific situation.

Advantages of NHS Treatment

The NHS does a wonderful job, and one of its primary advantages is, of course, that its services are free at the point of use; private rehab, meanwhile, does come at a cost which can be offputting to some addicts (though compared with the potential costs of continuing to live with a dangerous addiction, this may be seen as a very valuable investment).

NHS services are also very accessible geographically as it operates throughout the country (whereas some rehab facilities may be some way away); NHS standards are also very high (though again waiting times may be substantial).

Addiction Support Groups

Several support group organisations exist across the country to provide assistance to recovering addicts. Support groups comprise recovering addicts who come together at regular meetings for mutual support, advice, solidarity, sympathy and friendship.

Attendees can come from all walks of life, united by shared experience of addiction and recovery; attendance at support groups is typically free with the only qualification for participation being a commitment to leading a life free of substance abuse.

The best-known support group organisation (and the one on which most others are modelled) is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) which was founded in 1935 and runs on its famous 12-step programme. Narcotics Anonymous (NA), founded in 1953 and based directly upon the AA model, caters to recovering drug addicts specifically.

In a similar vein, but supporting people recovering from addictions to specific substances, are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon assist the families and friends of addicts, typically holding meetings alongside those for the addicts themselves.

Support groups typically meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Bracknell, see the relevant websites:

Types of Counselling

Individual counselling is one form of assistance especially beneficial for recovering addicts with extremely busy schedules. This can be engaged in following a stay at rehab as a supplementary aid to recovery; on the other hand, it is also used to help manage an addiction ahead of engagement in a full treatment programme.

Private addiction counsellors operate similarly to “normal” psychotherapists (though of course with an emphasis on dealing with the causes and consequences of addiction specifically). Private counsellors providing a range of therapy models can be found across the UK; they can be seen on a weekly basis and typically charge a fee per appointment. Some are available for emergencies while others limit access to working hours.
