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
Not everyone in Cornwall can afford private rehab, but there is the option of accessing treatment via the NHS; their addiction treatment options are completely free of charge and can be accessed by anyone. There are a number available and they can be accessed in your local community, whether you’re based in Falmouth, Padstow, Fowey, or any other part of Cornwall.
Pros And Cons Of NHS Treatment
There are upsides and downsides to receiving addiction treatment via the NHS in Cornwall. It’s for you to determine if the pros outweigh the cons, concerning your unique circumstances.
The pros include:
- The service is free
- By law, your information and data provided for treatment is kept confidential
- The service can be accessed in your local community, keeping you close to family and/or work
On the downside:
- There is a waiting list before accessing care, which can make getting admitted a lengthy process
- You might not be referred to residential rehab
- There’s a possibility that you’ll have to attend various clinics/centres for different aspects of your treatment
- You may still be exposed to triggers, stressors, or substances of abuse that may derail your recovery
- You might not have the access to the therapist you need and expect
- Treatment may be provided by different therapists and health workers throughout treatment
- Building an outpatient support network may prove difficult
Addiction Support Groups
Addiction support groups can be highly beneficial to the recovery process. Whilst part of a support group, you’ll be able to share your personal experiences with individuals who are going through (or have been through) just what you’re experiencing. Support groups also help recovering addicts with co-occurring mental conditions like depression.
Support groups offer emotional assistance and guidance to recovering addicts struggling with cravings.
Advantages of addiction support groups include:
- Knowing you’re not alone
- Having people that can hold you accountable for any mistakes or slipups in recovery
- Meeting individuals also aiming for long-lasting abstinence
- Learning skills to cope with cravings
- Getting support during difficult emotional times
Several individuals have attained lasting abstinence with the help of addiction support groups. However, coupling individual therapy and inpatient treatment with support groups will yield far greater results.
To get the best out of working with an addiction support group, you’ll need to know what to expect. For instance, a support group should be encouraging and constructive. A number of support groups are active in Cornwall, including in Falmouth, Looe, and other areas.

What Is NA?
Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be described as a free counselling and support group for people addicted to drugs. NA can help with addiction by encouraging you through the detox process and helping you avoid a relapse.

The group is apolitical, nonprofessional, multiracial, self-supporting, free to attend, and available in various parts of Cornwall. Membership is open to anyone willing and committed to beating their drinking problem.
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.
How Can I Get to Cornwall?
Several of Cornwall’s coastal towns are linked by major railway lines (including the CrossCountry and the GWR ) and connect Cornwall with branch lines to Falmouth, Looe, Newquay and St Ives.
For those of you travelling from London to Penzance, for example, there is a direct train line by the GWR to the Cornwall-based town. It can be boarded from Paddington station and the total journey time is a bit over five hours.It’s quite a good idea to use this line for reaching the whle of Cornwall, too as the line runs through the county with stops at Liskeard, St Austell, truro, Redruth, St Erth amongst others before reaching Penzance.
Cars are a convenient way to get around Cornwall, but traffic during peak tourist periods can delay trips. Carshare Cornwall is also available and is a free service that lets you offer or receive lifts for journeys around the county. You can also make use of www.theaa.com/route-planner/
The roads are also suitable for bus and coach rides, so keep that in mind while planning your trip: when it comes to incoming coaches, the area is served chiefly by the National Express. Bigger coach stations include the ones in Truro, Penzance and Newquay.
