Private Rehab

Private rehabilitation facilities are independent treatment centres designed to provide a conducive environment for recovery, as well as effective, personalised treatment plans for people who want to overcome their addiction. These rehabs run residential programmes from 28 to 90 days that are personalised to the needs of each client. You’ll get 24/7 care from start to finish with an experienced medical and therapy team.

The major benefit of private rehab is the intensity of treatment, which is comprehensive and tailored to fit each patient. Private rehab centres are also medical clinics, where you can receive (if required) a medical detox, treatment for physical and behavioural addictions along with psychiatric support.

Treatment includes a thorough assessment to determine your specific treatment needs; detoxification to remove all harmful toxins from your system; psychotherapy to treat all psychological problems, and 1yr free aftercare to help you maintain abstinence after rehab.

Cost can be a barrier but should be weighed up versus longer-term cost of addiction both financial, physical and mental

What Does Rehab Cost?

Generally rehab costs range between £1500 and £3000 per week. However, the price of treatment will vary based on a number of factors. These factors include the length of treatment, size of the treatment programme, location of the facility, treatment methods used, and the amenities provided by the rehab. Rehab facilities providing amenities such as a swimming pool and private gym, in-house chefs, spa/massage, housekeeping, and so on, tend to cost more than facilities with just the basic treatment requirements.

NHS Addiction Treatment

If you can’t afford the cost of private rehab, but are in need of substance addiction treatment, you can still get the help you need through NHS addiction treatment in Bristol. We understand that private rehabs may not be an option for everyone, and, fortunately, free treatment options exist. If you’re looking for affordable addiction treatment in Bristol, you can benefit from NHS treatment if you meet the eligibility requirements for the treatment.

Pros And Cons Of NHS Treatment


  • Treatment is confidential and, by law, your personal information is not publicised
  • Services are free at the point of use
  • NHS treatment is provided in your local community, and you can maintain close contact with, and gain support from, friends and loved ones


  • Long waiting lists that can delay start of treatment, and eventually cause patients to revert to drug use
  • Admission process is lengthy
  • Low chance of referral into inpatient or residential rehab
  • Treatment may not be provided in a single centre
  • You may have to visit different clinics for different aspects of your treatment
  • Presence of triggers and potential temptations in your personal environment could affect the progress in treatment
  • Poor access to therapists or counsellors

Addiction Support Groups

From choosing to quit using drugs or alcohol, and undergoing withdrawal and detox, the recovery journey can be challenging. We usually recommend that it not be experienced alone. There are several support groups that you can join to find encouragement and motivation during and after treatment. Bristol is home to a number of support groups for different types of addiction, and if you need help finding a suitable group for your specific addiction, we can help you. These addiction support groups are highly effective, and can help you to maintain sobriety in the early stages of recovery, when there’s still a high possibility of relapse.

What Is NA?

NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a popular non-profit organisation aimed at helping individuals recover from problems related to drug abuse and addiction. The group is open to anyone interested in quitting drug use, and attendance is free. If you’re planning to quit drug use, or are already undergoing drug addiction treatment in Bristol, we recommend joining NA and getting acquainted with the 12-steps. Meetings are ‘anonymous’, and participation is of your free will and doesn’t come with negative repercussions.

What Is AA?

Similar to NA, AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) is a non-profit support group for men and women struggling with alcoholism. Participation during and after treatment can contribute to lifelong recovery, and attendance is free of charge. Regular AA meetings are organised in several locations across Bristol and are particularly helpful for individuals who have completed a structured rehab treatment programme and are in need of ongoing support, especially during the challenging first few weeks or months in recovery.

Types Of Counselling

One-to-One This is the most commonly known type of therapy. It involves a counselling session between a therapist and a patient in the same room. It may be held in an office, coffee shop, garden or any place where the patient feels most comfortable. Face-to-face therapy includes techniques such as motivational interviewing, simple yet effective QnA or unloading where the client releases what’s been on there mind causing anxiety, fear, sadness etc. before the therapist interprets this and helps the client to uncover the root issue.

Online This includes all counselling services provided through the internet. It includes sessions via emails, Skype, and support group chat rooms such as SMART Recovery online support groups. It is easy, convenient, and promotes anonymity.

Group Involves a number of people struggling with similar issues coming together to discuss these issues openly, and in the presence of a certified counsellor. Through this process, each participant gains a deeper insight into their addiction, while providing support to others in the group at the same time.
