Private drug addiction rehab facilities offer the quickest and safest route to recovery from drug addiction. They are a better option than free services available from the NHS for number of reasons. First is the ability to offer clients immediate admission.
Where the NHS is concerned, the demand for services far outweighs the supply resources. You could apply for a programme and wind up waiting weeks to get started. A private clinic can get you in right away. What’s more, private drug clinics offer a greater choice of treatments and bespoke treatment plans. Most clinics don’t depend on a one-size-fit all approach that doesn’t take into consideration individual circumstances.
Here is a brief overview of the differences between private drug clinics and NHS services:
NHS services are standardised; private clinics offer custom tailored plans
NHS services typically involve long waiting lists; private clinics offer immediate admission
NHS services are outpatient-based; private clinics offer the opportunity for residential rehab treatment
the NHS must provide service for every type of illness; private clinics can focus only on drug rehab.
The importance of immediate admission for drug treatment cannot be understated. Having to apply for a programme and then wait weeks for admission is just inviting the drug addict to change his/her mind. With immediate admission, there’s an opportunity to seize the moment as soon as the drug addict agrees to seek help.
Most of the clinics we work with can get the addict admitted within 24 hours. In emergencies, admission can even be quicker. Private clinics are not oversubscribed as the NHS is. And even when a clinic has no available beds, we work with dozens of others you can choose from. We have access to private drug clinics across the UK and beyond.
Immediate admission also provides for medically supervised detox as soon as the addict enters the clinic. Medically supervised detox is the safest way to undergo what can be a very uncomfortable and dangerous process. The potential for shock, serious injury, and death is enough motivation to never attempt detox on your own. Private rehab clinics have the resources and professional staff to help addicts undergo withdrawal safely. That includes 24-hour supervision and around-the-clock care.
Private Clinics Offer Time Away
The most successful private drug clinic programmes operate on a residential basis. A residential treatment plan provides the recovering addict with much needed time away – time away from his or her everyday life, normal routine, and circumstances and individuals that may enable their addiction. This time away allows the addict to focus fully on their recovery.
Over the years, the separation component of residential treatment has proved successful repeatedly. Without the responsibilities of day-to-day life, the addict is not distracted in his/her quest to get well. Furthermore, it offers the opportunity to break up that normal routine that fuelled the drug habit outside the clinic.
How It Works
Drug rehab in a private clinic can be based on one of two models, the first being outpatient care. Outpatient programmes involve the drug addict attending the facility for daily therapy, and then returning home every evening. These types of programmes require a lot more willpower along with unwavering support from family members and friends. It’s not usually the best option for chronic addicts.
A residential programme involves the client coming to live at the facility throughout the entire course of his or her treatment. If detox is determined as a necessary step, it is the first thing to be tackled. Detox involves withdrawal symptoms that usually begin to appear within a day of being separated from drugs. Thankfully, those symptoms tend to peak by the second or third day, winding down from there.
The good news is that the physical addiction to drugs can be broken with detox in about a week for most people. Some of the symptoms might linger for up to two weeks. However, detox must be followed by rehab therapy designed to break the psychological addiction to drugs. That takes a bit longer – between 4 and 12 weeks in most cases.
The different rehab therapies private clinics use include various types of counselling, life skills building, group support, and recreational activities. These therapies are intended to force the recovering addict to deal with the deep-rooted issues of psychological addiction. Only when he or she recognises these issues and is willing to confront them can permanent recovery be achieved.
Rest assured that the clinics we work with all utilise licensed and experienced professionals able to offer therapies that achieve positive results. Moreover, because treatment plans are custom tailored to the individual client, success is a lot more likely at a private clinic. Clinic staff tend to be the very best medical professionals assisted by experienced and fully trained support staff. They will administer every therapy safely and properly.
If you’re considering entering a drug treatment programme, you need to know that finding the right private drug clinic will not be enough on its own. Successful treatment requires the right attitude on your part; an attitude that includes your willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve victory. If you do not want to be helped, you cannot be helped.
Time to Evaluate
It’s time for you to take stock of your situation as it relates to possible drug addiction. You know that addiction has ruined your life or you wouldn’t be considering treatment. However, please understand that your addiction is also ruining the lives of those closest to you. You need to get treatment as soon as possible.
The sooner you agree to seek treatment, the greater the chances of achieving long-term sobriety. Always remember that your willingness to seek treatment is the key. After all, the only real cure for drug addiction is permanent abstinence. Anything less is an open door to relapse.
