How to find the best rehab facilities: What to look out for

It is the Executive Rehab Guide’s mission to provide compassionate care to those affected by depression, anxiety, stress, grief or burnout.

We understand better than anyone that someone going through a deep depression needs vital help, resources and support to get better.

“Our experiential treatments are proven to work – 72% of visitors who stayed with us short-term reported no break in their recovery. This is because we are here for you 24/7 and provide our visitors with coping techniques and methods to help them deal and reintegrate successfully into everyday life.”

Treatment works

Committing to a rehabilitation programme is a difficult step for anyone. If you have acknowledged you have a problem – or your relationship with alcohol/drugs is impacting your life in negative ways, you have made the first step towards getting better.

Although there are many treatment centres across the UK, not every facility is prioritising patient care over profit. This is why you must be confident about your choice of facility.

What to avoid?

  • Lack of a structured treatment approach: Before deciding on a rehab centre, make sure to ask a representative for a full outline of their treatment approach(es). If they cannot provide this, you should see this as a red flag and seek an alternative option.
  • Lack of aftercare and family involvement: Addiction is not simply “overcome” in a few weeks at rehab. It involves continual, reoccurring decisions and work. It is important to find a rehab centre that facilitates this aftercare and provides family involvement so people are not left feeling alone in their recovery post-rehab.
  • Unnecessary degree of individual restriction/dehumanisation: The way that mental illness has traditionally been viewed and treated is founded on highly problematic, dehumanising values and treatment methods. Make sure the facility you chose treats every individual case as an individual case and sees the full person in need of treatment, rather than imposing values and restrictions on that individual.

What to look for?

  • Holistic treatments: No two cases of addiction are the same, which is why a rehab centre must incorporate a varied approach to treating addiction; using traditional therapy, group therapy, and where appropriate, additional complementary therapies such as writing, art, and exercise.
  • Wide variety of therapists: Some facilities will mainly offer group therapy rather than individual therapy since this keeps costs low, however, everyone’s experience of addiction is unique and often, both individual and group therapy is needed to fully target underlying causes.
  • Licensed practitioners: Consider whether there a range of accredited therapists, nurses, fitness instructors, chefs etc available if treatment is fully wholistic it will incorporate exercise and nutrition too!)
  • Focus on underlying issues: Addiction is often a coping mechanism that is initiated by feelings of lack in other areas of our lives. A treatment programme must provide clients with the tools and space needed to explore these issues, rather than simply serving as a location where they are prevented from accessing drugs/alcohol.
  • Environment: When going through rehab, it is vital to be in an environment that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. There are plenty of facilities in the open countryside that allows you access to walks in nature or a spacious garden.
