Private Rehab Facilities

Residential rehab is the preferred treatment option for many professionals and their family members for all substance abuse issues.

Admission can often be organised within 24 hours, on Mondays to Fridays.

If you can fund treatment privately or if you have private health insurance then you will be able to access private rehab treatment.

Good quality private alcohol rehab treatment is proven to provide the best option for detoxification and recovery from alcohol addiction resulting in less relapse and longer periods of sustained sobriety.

Just because a treatment centre is private, does not guarantee that it provides a good quality programme. Many treatment centres in the UK at the cheaper level do not provide any medical staff. This means that dealing with co-occurring disorders like anger, depression, trauma and anxiety often get overlooked.

Make sure you check the quality standards of a treatment centre that you are considering.

Inspection reports, ISO accreditation and verified outcomes (success rates) provide a way of checking on the quality of all UKTreatment facilities.

What free services are available?

If you are seeking free support for yourself or a loved one, then there are several free services available.

It is important to remember, however, that there is no free option for residential or inpatient rehab.

Free services, therefore, are only suitable for very mild cases, or to maintain long-term recovery.

Free services include:

1. Holistic Support groups and charities

There are charities and support groups that offer a confidential helpline and conduct local group sessions for those recovering from alcohol or drug abuse.

They are confidential and anonymous and offer a sympathetic and supportive outlet for those attempting to recover.

Here is just a selection of some of the main charities and support groups available:

2. NHS Talking Therapies

The NHS offers support for those struggling with mental health.

NHS Talking Therapies, as the name suggests, is a service that supports by allowing you to talk through your illness with an NHS practitioner.

NHS treatment for addiction is hard to come by due to extensive waiting lists.

Your GP might offer substitute drugs while you await treatment, which may come with severe risks.

Speak to your local GP to discuss your options.
