What Is Rehab?
Rehab is the name given to a facility that treats those suffering with addiction. It is usually set in a spacious and pleasant surrounding, where people can focus wholly on their recovery, safe in the knowledge that it is completely confidential. Patients are provided with bespoke treatment programme which begins with a detox phase (which can be medically assisted) and a period of holistic therapy aimed at uncovering the causes of their addiction, and providing them with the correct defence mechanisms against relapse for their reintegration into society.
Private rehab is considered the most effective approach to the treatment of addiction, in terms of its being the most likely to result in permanent abstinence on the part of the erstwhile addict. Its ability to address both short- (physical dependency countered by detoxification) and long-term (psychological addiction, tackled by therapy) challenges in one holistic treatment programme conducted under one roof is unparalleled, and indeed in mainstream culture “rehab” has become synonymous with addiction treatment.
How Can I Get Someone into Rehab?
Addiction ruins lives, and the sooner an addict can set out upon the road to recovery, the better – not simply because every day that goes by whilst they struggle with addiction is one more which cannot be spent enjoying all the wonderful things which a drug-free life can offer, but because the consequences of addiction for physical and mental health can be catastrophic, and each day spent feeding an addiction is another day of damage to mind, body and soul.
The quality of NHS addiction treatment services is very high, but unfortunately so is demand for them and waiting times can be extremely long. If you or someone you love are wrestling with addiction, don’t waste any more time: reach out today to discuss some of the private options which may be available to you. Call 0800 024 1455 to speak with an addiction specialist.
The Advantages of Private Rehab
As a result of this bilateral approach to treatment – addressing both the immediate problem of physical dependency and the longer-term challenge of psychological addiction – rehab is generally considered to be the most effective means of combating addiction, in terms of its ability to set patients on the path to a permanent recovery.
Support groups for addiction allow people to share their personal experiences. There are groups that can benefit anyone with any type of addiction. Support groups are also helpful for addicted people with co-occurring mental conditions like depression.
At the end of a stay in any quality rehab, patients will receive free aftercare for up to a year: recovery is not complete the moment a patient walks out of the facility, but is an ongoing process with numerous pitfalls which rehab can continue to help the recovering addict navigate around.

Advantages of NHS Treatment
The primary advantage of NHS treatment is, of course, financial: private rehab comes at a cost which may be off-putting to some addicts (although, set against the costs – financial and otherwise – of addiction, this investment may be comparatively minor) and NHS options are free at the point of use. They are also very accessible geographically in that the NHS operates in every corner of the country (though waiting times vary and may be substantial). Furthermore, the NHS offers a high standard of service – though quality does vary by location.
Addiction Support Groups
The UK currently has numerous organisations set up to provide help and support to recovering addicts. These support groups comprise of individuals from all walks of life, brought together by their common experience of addiction and recovery. It is a chance for people in recovery to meet regularly and to give and take mutual support in the form of advice, solidarity, sympathy and companionship
The most famous support group organisation is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) which was founded in 1935 and runs on a 12-step programme of personal and spiritual development, with one of the steps being a recognition that a higher power – such as God – can assist with an alcoholic’s recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous (NA), founded in 1953 and based directly upon the AA model, is the second-largest support group organisation worldwide and caters to recovering drug addicts specifically. In a similar vein, but supporting those recovering from addictions to specific substances, are Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Heroin Anonymous (HA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA), all of which operate 12-step programmes.
Support groups typically meet weekly, though each local chapter is managed independently and meeting times and venues are subject to change. To find information on meetings in or near Ryde, see the relevant websites:
