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.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options

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.
