A Guide To Alcohol And Drug Rehab Treatment In Hertfordshire

Addiction begins as recreational drug use in many cases. Young people gathering to drink cough syrups or try ‘gateway drugs’ due to peer pressure is just one of the reasons why many individuals battle with addiction for years. Others take drugs to de-stress and cope with the everyday hardships of life.

Over time addiction takes over your finances, time, social life, physical/mental health and relationships with loved ones. Admitting that you need help is the first step to getting treatment for your addiction. No matter the substance of abuse, addiction is a serious disease that needs to be tackled before it causes irreparable damage to your life.

Thankfully, help is available; there are free and paid resources in Hertfordshire where you can access the necessary addiction treatment.

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.
