In This Guide

If you're looking for drug or alcohol addiction help - you'll have already realised the myriad of options on offer. It's easy to sign up too quickly for treatment, without a proper understanding what to look for.

If you're considering rehab treatment in Canton, first check our guide below - this is the UK’s no 1 guide on how to find the right rehab centre for you.

Step 1 - Get Clear On Your Needs

There are a wealth of treatment options available for those fresh to the journey of recovery. But, choosing the wrong provider early on, might mean drawing the wrong conclusions about recovery, and what's possible for your future.

Detox-Only, Versus Full Rehabilitation Programme

A normal stay for alcohol or drug treatment would include the three stages of detoxification, rehabilitation, and aftercare planning. But there's no point in spending more than you have to.

- Do you need all three stages of treatment, detox > rehab > aftercare?

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 Canton

Thinking of treatment nearby? It's a natural response when feeling low.

But the provider on your doorstep doesn't necessarily provide the best overall value, in the context of your entire recovery journey.

Detox beds can be found in hospitals, and virtually any clinic. But does their long term support match your needs in the longer term? We're getting to the real questions here about standard of care delivered, instead of just the bare minimum.

Detox Requirements

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

Multiple previous detoxes, or challenging liver issues, should mean you're extra careful that the clinic can accommodate your needs, both safely, and comfortably.

The medical team at a given clinic have the final say of course, but the admissions team for a provider should be well-versed enough to give you an idea of how your detox will proceed.

Ask if the clinic you're dealing with has specialist professionals who've delivered your detox in the past, and with what results.

Recommended Questions To Ask:

KEY QUESTIONS

- Can you easily accommodate my detox needs?
- What professionals in the clinic are admininstering detox?
- Will I be able to speak with someone who decides about my detox regimen, once admitted to the clinic?

Step 2 - The Day To Day Inside A Clinic

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

You'll stay full time in a clinic, normally with a dedicated room and your own space, complete detox, and attend therapeutic sessions several times a week. Towards the end of your stay, the clinic should set up supports for the future. More about that later.

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.

The Plan For Treatment

Whilst all clinics operate a group environment generally, most should look to help you keep track of your progress, and monitor treatment goals reached.

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.

Be sure to take an active part in this, to avoid having standardised goals laid out, that don't match your preferences or personal situation. Any input at this stage will likely pay dividends later.

Suggested Questions:

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?
- How is care planning done?

A Day In The Life

What Is Day To Day Life Like, In Treatment?

It can be tricky to discern exactly what happens each day in treatment, as the routine can vary.

Since residential rehab is a group environment, most clinics provide each client with a daily agenda, every night for the following day. This schedule will be your guide for day to day life in the clinic, as you move through the stages of treatment in your care plan.

Detox from alcohol or substance misuse in a clinic can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on multiple factors. Depending on usage levels, many will be able to progress to the next stage of treatment after just a few days. Others may take much longer than this to progress. There is no fixed timescale for each individual.

Visiting the clinic before committing to treatment will also help you gauge just what the everyday is like, inside a centre, before committing financially.

Make Sure These Questions Are On Your List:

KEY QUESTIONS

- Do you have a virtual online tour I can take?
- Do I take part in daily activities even during detox? 
- How do I get reassurance about the look and feel of the clinic, prior to arranging admission? 
- When do you expect me to start taking part in the therapy process?

How Does Covid-19 Affect Rehab Centres?

Recovering from addiction is a group-oriented exercise.

Overcoming old patterns of self-isolation is normally a big part of getting better.

But making headway in your recovery, at the expense of other health factors, won't help anyone.

Make sure of the following:
  • What preventative measures does the clinic have in place, re detection and prevention of Covid-19?
  • What daily agenda items in the clinic mean group interaction, and are they adjusted appropriately to accommodate concerns re covid-19?

Step 3 - Set A Budget

Decide firstly, are you going down the public or private route?

There are few half way house providers that exist generally, between public providers, and private treatment, so get clear from the start on which you need.

  • Public providers like the NHS in the UK, will generally offer addiction keywork support sessions weekly, on an out-patient basis, with possible referral to other outpatient support services. Waiting lists are usually long.
  • Private providers - the main advantage to private rehab clinics is fast and easy access to supervised detox, a custom treatment plan, and end-to-end joined up addiction care, all under one roof. Your investment in private help is purchasing greater experience and insight into your particular needs. This can have a significant impact on your longer term sobriety. Paid providers are running a business of course, and must pay all the associated costs of specialist staff, day-to-day running costs, medical fees, etc. Thus a stay in rehab will likely be in the region of £2,500 - £15,000, depending on how long you stay, your needs, and other specifics.
Public Or Private?
Public
  • Mostly Self-Managed/Keywork sessions
  • Referral to other specialists if/as needed
  • Free or minimal cost
  • Rehab only in exceptional cases
  • High demand, long waiting lists
Private
  • Full programme of detox, therapy help, and aftercare planning
  • Full programme  in one location
  • Start treatment quickly; usually 24 hrs
  • Not publicly funded

If you're tempted to opt for the cheapest clinic straight away, think twice.

Working with minimalist care, in a clinic with spartan conditions is not conducive to personal breakthroughs. Instead, look for alternative providers with smaller programmes, headcount, and overheads, to strike the right balance.

By calling and comparing a few treatment providers against each other, this step should give you a sense of what rehab will cost.

Other Ways To Get Help

Support In The Community

Even since covid-19, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups are still available, although most have now adopted online platforms to hold meetings, these can still be a rich source of support.

For most at the start of the recovery journey though, detox options are a very real need, and not something that can be obtained without more specialist help.

Community support is invaluable, at the right stage in the process. But the first stage of help - physically detoxing - will need more specialist care.

NHS Addiction Options

Whilst the NHS do have addiction keyworkers in different regions, they’re normally overrun with enquiries and demand on resources, meaning obtaining funding for a rehab stay is unlikely.

Hospital or clinic based detox places strain on resources and funding, and is usually only available for extreme cases.

Aggregating funds together, between friends and family, can be a good approach to securing private treatment instead, where the individual can't finance it themselves.

Step 4 - Find Objective Reviews

Assessing a provider's standard of care is important - but can be tricky for the layman.

Our heroes here are the industry watchdogs - The Care Commission, and The Care Inspectorate.

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.


This includes feedback on staffing, care and support levels, management, and environment.

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 - Complete The Initial Assessment

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

The clinic team will ask you to complete a telephone questionnaire, to make sure they can meet your needs.

A telephone assessment might last up to 30 minutes, after which the provider will likely request you to pay a deposit towards treatment, so that they can progress further with your admission.

Any additional financial issues, such as paying via insurance policy, would normally also be sorted out at this stage.

Step 6 - Arranging Payment

As mentioned above, paying a deposit means the clinic can prepare for your arrival, and allocate your room booking.

The deposit could be anywhere from £500 - £3,000, depending on specifics. Most clinics accept payment over the phone by card.

A few offer payment plans to help spread the cost of rehab, although nowadays this is less common.

Ask for an email confirmation of booking, and get clarity on when the admission details will be finalised, and your date of admission confirmed.

Outstanding Balance

The remaining balance is normally paid for on arrival at the clinic, at the point of admission.

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

Step 7 - Get Started

Make note of the day and time you're due to admit to treatment.

Most clinics will expect you to pack these basics:

  • Comfortable clothes, suitable for relaxing in the clinic
  • Everyday toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel, shaving kit, etc
  • Accessories for any gym/swim/leisure facilities
  • A supply of any regular prescribed medication, to last the length of your stay

Check your booking confirmation for advice about mobile phone usage, internet access, visits, leisure facilities, and any special arrangements for covid-19.

Make sure to finalise transport arrangements a few days in advance, to ensure you attend the clinic on time, and avoid any surcharges on delays on treatment.

From this point on, your recovery journey has begun!
