Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres in Wales
Every day, Addiction Helper talks with people in need of drug or alcohol rehab in Wales. Some of them are young people still in school; others are older people who have been struggling with drugs or alcohol their entire lives. Some have white-collar jobs, others blue-collar, and still others don’t work at all. What do they all have in common? They are individuals with their own needs.
Customised alcohol and drug rehab in Wales exist for this very reason. Since every client is an individual with a unique past, current circumstances and future goals, the best way to treat each of them is to develop a bespoke treatment plan. In our opinion, there really is no better way to help individuals overcome alcohol and drug problems.
Rehab in Wales
You may have heard stories about what rehab in Wales used to be like. Actually, it was no different than what was found anywhere in the UK. Treatment programmes for drug and alcohol were essentially one-size-fits-all programmes that were customised only to the extent of categorising clients based on the substances they were using.
In the old days, every alcoholic went through the same kind of treatment programme. So did every illicit drug user. So why did we change things? Because years of research helped us to understand that putting every substance abuser through the same treatment did not help each of them the same way. Some succeeded, most did not.
Over time it became apparent that we needed to start looking at clients more individually. From that understanding came a new model based on designing bespoke treatment plans for every client. The bespoke model is now the norm throughout the UK and Europe.
Bespoke Drug Rehab in Wales
Addiction Helper has access to a full range of drug and alcohol rehab resources. For example, we work with both private clinics and organisations offering free services. We provide clients with information on NHS programmes as well. The one thing we want to make clear is that it is very difficult for the NHS to create customised treatment plans for every patient.
The NHS does good work considering the scope of its mission and the size of its operations. But because they have to deal with every medical problem under the sun, along with millions of patients, NHS facilities really don’t have the resources to dedicate to customised alcohol and drug rehab in Wales. Therefore, the most effective way to take advantage of bespoke services is to admit to a residential treatment programme.
Residential treatment facilities perform a comprehensive medical and psychological assessment on every client upon admittance. That assessment is then used to create the bespoke treatment plan medical professionals and therapists will follow. Even better, bespoke treatment plans can be modified as needed to account for the progress of each client.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Wales: Getting Started
Let’s say you are in need of residential drug or alcohol rehab in Wales. What do you do? How do you get the process started? The answer is simple: contact Addiction Helper.
Addiction Helper is a referral and advice organisation helping substance abusers and their families find and access appropriate treatment for drugs or alcohol. We are essentially the first step in creating a bespoke treatment plan you or your loved one will benefit from. In brief, the process works as follows:
- You contact us through this website or over the phone; one of our fully trained counsellors would perform an initial assessment based on current medical standards.
- From that assessment, our counsellor would generate a list of treatment facilities and programmes in your local area.
- Our counsellor would walk you through every treatment option, answering any and all questions you might have.
- Our counsellor would recommend the best options along with offering explanations.
- You ultimately decide if, when and where you will access treatment for drugs or alcohol.
- Our counsellor will help you arrange admission if necessary.
We follow this process because it is time-tested and effective. However, we are not locked into it. If you’re just looking for someone to talk to even though you are not ready to commit to treatment, we still welcome your phone call. We want to help you if we can.
