Choosing a treatment method

Addiction is a disease and is not treated or cured overnight. Therefore, we would encourage you when choosing where to carry out your treatment to fully understand how far the facility will go in aiding your aftercare recovery and what happens in an event of a relapse.

What to Look Out For When Choosing a Treatment

There are several options available for those needing treatment to deal with anxiety, depression or addiction.

But seeing as private rehabs tend to be costly, you must understand how to choose the right one and what to look out for.

Unfortunately, not all rehabs are the same, this means that you need to ensure that you are getting exactly the right treatment you need to help your problems get better. F

Things to consider when choosing a rehab treatment:

 

  • Waiting times: Do you have to wait to be admitted or can you be admitted immediately? Going through the NHS often means long waiting lists and delayed treatments. Compare the differences between the NHS and private establishments here.
  • Do you have any underlying conditions: Do you need to be treated for depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress, PTSD as well as an addiction problem?
  • Detox: Has your problem become so severe you think you need to receive treatment for alcohol and drugs?
  • Treatments: What treatment models will you receive? Is the 12 Step programme included? What holistic, experiential or CBT therapies are on offer?
  • Payment: Will you be able to be covered by private medical insurance? Are you able to pay privately? How long is the NHS waiting list for funding?
  • Are there any hidden extras? Look out for clinics who additionally charge for extra services and treatments. If possible, it should be preferable to choose a clinic that offers all-inclusive treatment, like Castle Craig for example.
  • Accreditation: Is the rehab facility accredited by an external source such as the Care Commission or Health Improvement Scotland?
  • Location: Where will the treatment be based? You want to consider opting for places that get you away from the pressures of everyday life. Escaping to the countryside, for example, is a good place to begin because you will be isolated from old bad habits and temptations and will be able to fully focus on your recovery.

Questions to ask before you begin:

  2. Are the staff equally qualified to deal with mental health issues as well as addiction?
  3. Is the treatment plan tailored around the individual?
  4. What will a typical day look like in rehab?
  5. What shall I advise my family to do while I’m in treatment?
  6. Are you able to provide patient’s rights and responsibilities in writing?

Check the quality of care

Priave treatment for addicitonThere are many centres and facilities across the UK that may appear to be a residential rehab on the outside, but only offer the same as an AA group or support group.

If you are severely struggling with depression, or your addiction is out of control, it is important for your health, your family and your finances that you choose an accredited place and assess their quality of work.

What to check for:

  • Physicians, medical professionals, doctors, nurses and qualified therapists
  • There are plenty of treatments on offer – not just one, or a support group
  • Effective treatments are offered more than three hours per week
  • Aftercare and support is provided once treatment has finished
  • You are not removed from treatment if you relapse (often see in NHS funded placements)
