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

There are several NHS addiction treatment options in and around Berkshire. The services are free, confidential, and open to all residents who need help to understand their addiction and achieve their recovery goals. Some of these centres are located in Reading, Wokingham, Maidenhead, and Bracknell.

Pros And Cons Of NHS Treatment

Pros

The major reason why a significant number of Berkshire’s residents prefer NHS treatment is that it’s free. Services are provided in partnership with local and national charities that have experience helping individuals with addiction. Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment of your needs, and you’ll be assigned a dedicated keyworker to work with you throughout your recovery journey.

Cons

Free treatment in Berkshire is usually associated with long-waiting lists to access treatment. There is also immense pressure on existing infrastructure, due to the number of residents using the facilities. Long-term addicts, or those with dual diagnosis, who badly need inpatient treatment are faced with a long waiting list. It is important to move quickly when struggling with addiction. The waiting period may give you too much of an opportunity to make excuses as to why you shouldn’t receive treatment.

Addiction Support Groups

Support groups are an integral part of your recovery journey. They are recommended by specialists and long-term recovering addicts in Berkshire as a great way to gain motivation and maintain abstinence. They are also helpful to individuals diagnosed with mental health issues, such as depression.

Through this process, each participant gains a deeper insight into their addiction, while providing support to others in the group at the same time.
