Choosing a rehab facility
Drug and alcohol abuse comes in many different forms and gradients. As such, the treatment for each substance abuser needs to be slightly different and tailored to meet the specific needs of each person. Because of this, there are a number of treatment centres offering various programs and approaches to rehabilitation.
• Private clinics generally have more money at their disposal. This can lead to newer equipment and slightly better facilities. Some private rehab centres may look more like luxury hotels rather than a medical facility. The peace and tranquillity of such places in beautiful surroundings can serve as part of the rehabilitation process by showing people a different lifestyle to the one that they are used to.
• NHS rehabilitation programs. It may be possible to seek rehab for free or at a considerably lower cost. Although NHS clinics are less likely to be as luxurious as the private clinics, they are more than able to offer effective treatment in order to help people get clean.
• Step programs can be used to guide people through the various stages of rehabilitation. The first step is detox. This may be followed by discovery of the underlying problem, dealing with that and then putting practises in place to build a better future drug and alcohol free.
• Holistic methods may be used to cleanse the body, mind and soul from the toxins of harmful substances.
• There are treatment programs that are geared towards religious beliefs and ones that aren’t. The renowned AA 12 step program was originally based heavily around a belief in God, asking people to place their trust in Him. However, this was adapted to use the same steps but asking people to believe in themselves. This program is more suited to non-believers.
