You can access treatment via a private rehab centre if you’re based anywhere on the Isle of Wight, and there are CQC registered facilities that are readily available to take you in. When you reach out to our advisors, you’ll be told in a friendly manner about what private treatment entails and how to be admitted without any hassle.
You should understand that these private rehab centres go over and above to make the treatment process stress-free on your part, which is why they put certain provisions in place; these include a free sober transport service to and from our facility, before and after treatment; en-suite bedrooms with ample space; a meal catering service; linen changing and laundry; as well as an onsite gymnasium and recreational study areas.
Treatment will include a medical detox process to keep you safe and comfortable during withdrawal, as the drugs and alcohol residues in your body are flushed out; and the rehab process, whereby your psychological issues that stem from (or have caused) your addiction are properly dealt with via psychotherapy.

What Does Rehab Cost?
If you’re concerned about the cost of treatment, call us to find out more. Treatment costs vary, according to different situations. Prices are generally flagged at a weekly fee that ranges from £1,250 to £2,500, but can easily fluctuate when issues such as treatment type, duration, and location of rehab are factored in. Other variables – such as a request for a completely executive rehab facility and the need for a specialised treatment plan – could also influence the cost of treatment.
NHS Addiction Treatment

These are NHS programmes and services provided through the collaboration of different local bodies for Isle of Wight residents who are experiencing addiction problems.

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 And from the Isle of Wight?
The fastest public transport connection that links the island to the mainland is the hovercraft, which goes to Southsea from Ryde, as well as two catamaran and three ferry services that cross The Solent to Lymington, Portsmouth and Southampton in Hampshire, where there are about 200 daily crossings.
The ports of Fishbourne, East Cowes, Yarmouth, Cowes, and Ryde have a direct link to the coastal towns in Hampshire.
There are rail links to different ports on the island that can get you to and from various local regions. There are also train connections with mainland ports from London train stations that can get you to the port in under two hours.
Some prefer to get a designated driver and go to their Isle of Wight rehab of choice by car. This is possible through the mainland road network to Portsmouth, Southampton and Lymington. After that it’s the ferry.
National Express and Greyhound coaches can also provide a regular and responsible service which you can use to get to your ferry of choice. Reaching Isle of Wight and it’s sub-areas (including Cowes,Newport, Brading and Sandown) is quite easy and takes less than half an hour.
