Private Rehab

Private rehabilitation facilities are independent treatment centres designed to provide a conducive environment for recovery, as well as effective, individualised treatment plans for people who want to kick their addiction. These rehabs mostly run intensive inpatient programmes that are streamlined to the needs of each individual patient. You’ll get 24/7 care from start to finish.

The major benefit of private rehab is the intensity of treatment, which is comprehensive and tailored to fit each patient. Private rehab centres are medical clinics, where you can receive treatment for physical and behavioural addictions. 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 aftercare to help you maintain abstinence after rehab.

If your case of addiction is severe, and you’re afflicted with painful and discomforting withdrawal symptoms whenever you attempt to quit, it’s advised that you go through a private treatment facility for a personalised detox programme and holistic rehab, because these facilities are your best chance of getting a full recovery.

Standard rehab centres cost between £1,000 and £3k per week. This covers accommodation, therapy, detox, medication and aftercare. Luxury rehab programmes are exclusive and subsequently more expensive. They offer amenities you would usually find at a five-star resort, such as fine dining, saunas, massages, private workstations, animal therapy and music therapy. The price of treatment ranges from £15k to £25k per month.

NHS Addiction Treatment

If addiction has drained you financially, and you can no longer afford the cost of private rehab, there are NHS addiction treatment options near East Sussex that you can consider. This form of treatment is typically free of charge and, since it is quite common, you’ll be able to find a few of the treatment centres in your local area. Your GP can direct you to the closest NHS centre

Addiction Support Groups

Addiction support groups in East Sussex can help you build a drug-free and fulfilling life, and are great for people undergoing treatment, or who are in recovery. Support groups for addiction are made up of other recovering addicts coming together to give and receive support from one another. East Sussex offers several addiction support groups, and we recommend regular attendance to aid recovery. However, support groups should be used to complement a structured rehab programme, and not as a solo treatment option.

What Is NA?

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a non-profit group you can join both during addiction treatment and after you’ve been discharged from a facility. Whenever you feel the urge to resort to drug use, NA meetings can help, as there’s always someone to reach out to for support. NA meetings are held throughout the week across East Sussex and can help you if you’ve completed a rehab programme and need more support.

What Is AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a major part of alcohol recovery. The non-profit group was set up before WW2, as a way to provide support and encouragement for men and women trying to overcome alcohol dependence and addiction. East Sussex is well-served with AA meetings, and regular attendance can improve your chances of maintaining long-term sobriety from alcohol.

Types Of Counselling

One-to-One This is the most commonly known type of therapy. It involves a counselling session between therapist and 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 whats 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.
