Wherever you live in Cambridgeshire or England, there is the perfect substance treatment hospital that can help you overcome your addiction. We'll help you find it.

Starting the rehab process

Assessment | Detox | Therapy | Aftercare

NHS rehab Process: Your GP in St Ives is a good place to start. They can discuss your ketamine problems with you and help get you the right ketamine addiction treatment in Cambridgeshire.

Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your alcohol rehabilitation clinic of choice. See admissions.

Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.

Arriving at the treatment centre

This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere

  1. You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
  2. You may need to detox
  3. You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Great Green. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
  4. You may then assigned to a group of other alcoholics etc.
  5. You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Cambridgeshire
  6. You may be given 12 step recovery literature
  7. You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
  8. You might then meet the rest of the alcoholics/addicts

Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Cambridgeshire have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Does rehab work in Cambridgeshire?

Yes it does. There is a strong evidence base to support the treatment methods used at Castle Craig, as well as in support of residential rehabilitation treatment for alcohol/addictions.

What Are The Success Rates? "One most recent independent research (2019) shows 73% of clients achieving long-term abstinence with 93% showing overall improvements.'"

What's it like? Click here for more information.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well

  1. Aftercare: UK Statistics always show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence from alcohol addiction. Recovering patients who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year. Most clinics include aftercare as part of their treatment services in most cases. NHS clinics do not always have this facility

  2. Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Cambridgeshire tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many patients have co-occurring issues like anxiety disorders or sex and love issues. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.

    The ability to custom tailor a treatment plan enables clinic staff to achieve maximum benefits from every therapy chosen. Remember time is limited to 28-days if you have health insurance.

    Every patient receiving treatment at a UK residential facility is part of a group that is constantly in one another presence, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"I just got back from spending five weeks at rehab, very tired, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am all gratitude." Destiny January 2019 Parc Seymour

Why rehab might not work:

  • Absence of dual diagnosis residential treatment
  • Lack of education for family and friends in St Ives
  • See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?

The duration of your alcohol rehabilitation clinic stay will depend on the severity of your dependency, your own commitment, family support and willingness to live a life free from dependency, and the amount of time and money you have available to spend. If you have insurance then it will generally be 28-days.

Generally, the longer the rehab programme the less likely you are to relapse. NHS rehab normally accommodates longer inpatient treatments sometimes up to a year. More.

Average UK inpatient times

  • Detox: 7-10 days (Methadone/20 days and Benzodiazepines/2-8 weeks).
  • Hospital residential treatment, general mental health issues, depression/anxiety etc.: 7-14 days

Ideal Rehab Location

Finding the best rehab programme for ketamine issues is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every patient is different. However, most doctors often recommend that removing clients away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably recommended.

It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.

The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.

Recommended rehabs. One rehab that ticks all of these boxes is Castle Craig based outside Edinburgh. Only a 4-hour train ride or less from Cambridgeshire. Over 10,000 patients have passed through our doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve, long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions. Another is Smarmore Castle in Ireland.
