Private Rehab

The temptation to continue abusing drugs is one of the hardest things an addict has to deal with. Each individual has a unique set of symptoms, environmental triggers, medical conditions, and mental health issues that might have fuelled the original addition.

Private rehabs provide a therapeutic environment, secluded from the rest of society, to help you focus on recovery, and deal with all the underlying reasons that led to addiction. Treatment is more focused and structured, to ensure you do not stray from the path to recovery.

You need inpatient treatment if you have a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, lack a strong support network, have tried to quit on your own and failed, have a diagnosis of a co-occurring disorder, or a medical condition that should be treated alongside your addiction.

The Pros And Cons Of Private Rehab

The Pros

Confidentiality: Many people who are dealing with addiction do not want to advertise the fact that they are receiving treatment. Private rehab centres always protect the identity of their clients and even take extra measures to ensure your details remain private whilst in treatment. No information can be released without your consent and, in most cases, only those who are directly involved in your treatment can access your file.

Integrated treatment: Most private rehab centres have their detox and rehabilitation facilities within the same unit. Detoxification is the first part of medical addiction treatment, used to remove harmful toxins from your body before you proceed to rehab. This ensures that patients are easily transferred once they’ve completed the first stage of treatment.

Access to a wide range of therapy options: To treat your addiction, private rehab centres in Bedford, and the rest of Bedfordshire, incorporate a range of therapies into your treatment. This includes traditional methods such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and group therapy. They also can include alternative techniques, such as nutrition therapy, art therapy, fitness therapy,and garden therapy.

Provision of aftercare: Aftercare is an essential part of treatment. It is the culmination of all the support you receive from a private rehab after you’re discharged from inpatient treatment. This includes support groups, relapse prevention, pharmacology, continued therapy, and more. The goal is to help you maintain abstinence after treatment.

The Cons

Inpatient treatment is more expensive than a community programme

NHS Addiction Treatment Options

If you can’t afford private rehab, do not despair, there are many free NHS and charity options near Newport Pagnell, St Neots, Bedford, and Luton. If you have small children at home or a job that doesn’t allow you to take the time off to attend inpatient treatment, you can give any of these options a try to break free from addiction.

The Pros And Cons Of NHS Treatment

The Pros

For most individuals battling addiction, the major benefit of government-funded treatment is that it is free. Councils and charity organisations partner to ensure that every area of the county has one form of addiction treatment for its residents. Services are mostly targeted towards the homeless, individuals who can’t afford private treatment, and those who don’t have insurance. Even with limited access to funding, most of these government rehabs or outpatient clinics still provide decent treatment,which has helped thousands of people break free from addiction.

The Cons

As you may expect from free treatment, the major drawback is the long waiting list associated with government programmes. Long-term users, or those suffering from worsening mental health, do not have the luxury of time, and their situation could deteriorate before they can access treatment. Given that government addiction treatment programmes have limited funding, they are unable to conduct a comprehensive analysis, offer long-term treatment, or provide specialised care to every patient.

Addiction Support Groups

Addiction support groups are mostly facilitated by peers who gather in a fellowship to help each other by providing support, sharing experiences, strength, and hope. Mutual aid groups are an essential part of your recovery journey. Continued attendance, even after you’ve completed treatment, helps you maintain sobriety from drugs, alcohol, and behavioural addictions.

What Is NA?

Narcotic Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women, who have a strong desire to quit addiction to drugs. They follow the 12-step principle, that encourages members to lean on a higher power for recovery, assume responsibility for their recovery, work through the steps with a sponsor, and share their experiences as a source of hope and strength to other members.

What Is AA?

Alcoholic Anonymous is the largest 12-step mutual aid group in the world. There are thousands of venues in the UK alone, and millions of members who have the goal of quitting alcohol abuse and maintaining abstinence. The group is not affiliated with any organisation, but focuses on walking through the 12-steps as a way of addicts taking responsibility for their actions and recovering from addiction.

Types Of Counselling

One-to-One This is the most commonly known type of counselling. It involves counselling session between a therapist and a patients in the same room, or could potentially involve a group. It may be held in an office, yard, garden or any place where the patient feels most comfortable. Face-to-face therapy includes individual therapy such as motivational interviewing or family therapy and group counselling.

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.
