New to addiction treatment? Clinic programmes and options for private addiction help can be confusing. Many simply don't know how to compare treatment providers and end up settling for less.

Our comprehensive guide includes guidance on how to compare providers when shopping around.

Step 1 - Addiction Treatment - Deciding What You Need

At the bottom of another binge it can feel all too easy to quickly commit to the nearest clinic offering a fast detox. But use your needs, and past experience, first and foremost, as your guide to what treatment will work best.

Detox Only, Or A Complete Recovery Programme?

A stay for alcohol or drug rehab normally follows the sequence Detox > Rehab > Aftercare, but do you need all three?

- Have you been detoxed before? Think about this carefully.

If you've completed previous treatment and have a good understanding of self already, the full programme may not be required. But if you don't have supports in place, the detox-only option may not be enough.

Finding Rehab Near Broadstone

Understandably, when feeling low and needing detox, most will opt for a clinic close to where they live.

But there's more to consider, in your long term sobriety journey, than the clinic next door.

Most clinics provide standard detox protocols and some form of therapy. But will they still be supporting you after you leave the clinic? Asking a few basics like these upfront can save a lot of headache later.

See all the locations Abbeycare serve, here.

Multi-Substance Detox, Or Previous Attempts At Rehab

Making sure you're getting the right support, can have a serious impact on long term results.

If you've had detoxes in the past, or complications like liver or other issues, you'll want to be extra careful here.

While an admissions team or sales team can give an indication of likely detox methods, this is of course finalised and decided upon by the supervising medical professionals present.

Does the medical team at a given clinic specialise in addiction? Or do they practice in more general matters, with addiction as a second interest?

KEY QUESTIONS

- How long should detox take, for me?
- What professionals in the clinic are admininstering detox?
- If I have questions about my specific detox needs, who would I speak to?

Step 2 - Behind The Scenes In An Addiction Treatment Clinic

What is day to day addiction treatment inside the clinic actually like?

Private rehab clinics are centres where all the normal addiction treatment options like detox, therapy, and relapse prevention, are provided in a private setting, all under one roof, with specialists in the field. With your own room, and seclusion away from the addiction triggers in normal life, you have a chance to truly recover.

The provider you're working with should ask you some questions over the phone to make sure you're a good match - it's important to give honest answers, to avoid complications later.

Keeping Track Of Getting Better

If your clinic provides strong personal attention in the programme, they should help you map out what you want from treatment, exactly.

In the best clinics, where personal attention is high, you'll work with an assigned case manager, throughout your stay, who should help you draw up a care plan, in this way.

Together you'll map out key milestones, while accounting for past addictive patterns and behaviours. It's worth making the effort here.

KEY QUESTIONS

- Do you provide a written plan for me to follow, during treatment?
- How do I make sure I stay on track during treatment?
- Do you take account of my history of addiction when making treatment care plans?
- Is there continuity whilst in treatment, of who I deal with, each day?

What's Rehab Treatment Like, Day To Day?

Tell me about the daily routine in treatment?

The structure of each day will vary of course, from one provider to the next.

In treatment, you should receive some form of agenda for each day of the week. This lays out the timetable of events, and what's expected.

The normal first stage of treatment is detox. Some will be ready to start therapeutic work after just a few days. Sometimes, detox will last much longer. Clinic staff understand this.

Also, make sure to ask to arrange a visit to look around the clinic, first.

KEY QUESTIONS

- Do you have a virtual online tour I can take?
- Do you have sample daily agendas for treatment I can look at? 
- Can I arrange a visit to the clinic, to look around, without obligation, before committing? 
- How quickly after detoxing can I get started on the remainder of the programme elements?

Does Covid-19 Affect My Rehab Treatment?

Few people successfully make it into long term recovery without the help of the bigger group around them.

In fact, a big part of recovering in the longer term, is re-learning to interact with others, and break the old patterns of isolation.

Making long term recovery gains today, means being careful to check on some basics re covid-19 preparedness and preventative measures.

Make sure of the following:
  • Does the clinic have provisions in place relating to Covid-19 prevention and detection (for your safety).
  • How does covid-19 affect elements of the programme that are usually group-oriented, e.g. exercise, meditation, therapy, etc?

Step 3 - Set A Budget

Getting funds together for rehab in Broadstone takes planning, for most families.

The ability of third sector or voluntary organisations to deal with more complex detox needs is usually slim - it's worth looking into this though.

  • Non-private help for addiction can be limited to local outpatient support with an assigned keyworker, and appropriate signposting to other specialists for help in other areas. For some, this can work well. Others need something more specialist. Timescales are usually 18months+, before a client is begun to be considered for rehab.
  • Private rehab clinics - are often the catalyst at the start of the process of long term recovery. Whilst they do come at a cost, private clinics have experience in providing specialist insight and intervention. This can have a significant impact on your longer term sobriety. This sort of help doesn't come free of course, private rehab clinics will cost in the region of £2,800 - £16,000+, variable depending on multiple factors.
Public Or Private?
Public
  • Keywork visit focussed
  • Onward referral possible
  • Low/No-cost
  • Usually no rehab or residential care
  • Lengthy wait time (normally)
Private
  • Includes detox, rehab, therapy, aftercare
  • All elements in a fully residential programme
  • Start treatment quickly; usually 24 hrs
  • Can be expensive

Automatically choosing the lowest price provider can lead to poor care levels inside the clinic, detrimental to your recovery progress.

Instead, seeking out non-brand name providers, who spend less on business and more on care levels, can pay off.

Get a rough indication of costs at this stage by calling a few clinics direct and make it clear your call is just an initial enquiry, to avoid over-committing to one provider too early.

Alternative Options

Mutual Aid Support

Big Book, or 12 step meetings, are available via groups such as AA and NA, across most towns and cities.

Whilst mutual aid plays a big part for many, later in their recovery journey, those at the start will need professional help to detox safely.

AA, NA, and the big book groups have millions of followers and attendees, and have been very successful over the years. But at the early stages, it's important to get safe and comfortable professional help to detox.

NHS Addiction Options

Requesting a referral to your local CAT (Community Addictions Team) from your GP normally means being assigned to a local keyworker who will help you keep track of intake, effects it has, etc, but obtaining short-term rehab help via public healthcare, is unlikely.

This is not a question of lack of intention to help, but more of resources and strain the healthcare system experiences, under heavy demand.

Where no public healthcare short term options are viable, or where the individual doesn't have enough funding in place for treatment, we often see families and friends pooling together to finance detox for a loved one.

Step 4 - Read The Only Impartial Reports

While many providers will claim to show many positive reviews, their legitimacy is not always clear.

The industry regulators - the Care Quality Commission in England & Wales, and the Care Inspectorate in Scotland, publish the only independent reporting on standards available, for private rehab clinics.

The CQC and The Care Inspectorate are the industry regulators, and complete routine inspections of private rehabs, which are often classified under the 'Care Homes' category, in their records.


Treatment providers are graded against standardised performance measures like environment, care standards, and support provided to clients.

Regulatory Inspections - Keynotes

When looking for CQC or Care Inspectorate reports, always look for those stating the visit was "Unannounced" instead of "Announced" - this means the provider was not aware the inspection was occurring, and hence is most likely to provide most insight into genuine standards of care.

Step 5 - Finalise The Details

Now that you've read up, and compared a few clinics, it's time to arrange admission.

When you call the admissions team for the clinic you’ve chosen, expect to go through an initial telephone assessment, and pay a deposit towards treatment, as explained above.

You can normally complete the necessary steps over the phone in 20 minutes or less, and then make an initial deposit towards treatment, that's used to hold the room in your name, until you arrive at the clinic.

It's a good time at this point to also sort out any payment by insurance policy, or other means.

Step 6 - Deposits & Paying For Treatment

Most clinics will expect payment of a deposit, toward the full balance of treatment, prior to admitting.

Depending on total costs, your deposit could be anywhere from £500 - £3,000 or more.

It's less common nowadays to see treatment clinics themselves offering payment plan options.

Be sure to get a written confirmation of receipt for your deposit, and confirm with the provider any admin fees due, in the event of admission delays, or even cancellation, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Remaining Balance

Treatment providers will expect payment for the remainder of the balance of treatment, upon arrival the clinic.

Interest on late payment for a significant sum like this can be significant, so it's worth getting this done on time.

Step 7 - Admit to treatment

If you don't already have it, contact the admissions team and confirm your date and time of arrival.

You'll usually be asked to bring certain essentials with you:

  • Comfortable clothes, suitable for relaxing in the clinic
  • Everyday toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel, shaving kit, etc
  • Suitable accessories for any leisure facilities/gym/etc if available
  • Enough of any regular prescribed medication, to last your treatment duration

Make sure to check paperwork for any restrictions on device usage (not all clinics allow this), internet access, and visits from family.

It's also worth ensuring travel arrangement ahead of schedule - as some providers with have surcharges for late arrival.

And of course, enjoy your recovery!
