NHS Drug and Alcohol Treatment versus Private Drug Addiction Treatment
NHS rehab or addiction treatment is free. However, compared to private rehab centres, there are some undesirable points about public rehab treatments.
- The waiting list is long (usually 18 )months+ for rehab
- There is no guarantee you will be accepted for detox.
- You will not have a choice of treatment centres.
- Your therapist options are limited to those chosen by NHS
- You will be attending different rehab clinics, not just one for your treatment.
- Usually, outpatient care is easier to obtain than inpatient care.
In comparison, private rehab clinics do not put you on a waiting list, and rehabilitation treatment options are more comprehensive and specialised for addiction.
Abbeycare offers primarily in-patient care (residential rehab), and a seamless end-to-end treatment programme for addiction.
What to Look for in a Recovery Programme
According to NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse), effective drug or alcohol rehab programmes are comprehensive, and cover a broad range of topics. These include:
- Evidence-based treatment
- Substance use monitoring
- Clinical and case management
- Recovery and support programs
- Continuing care
NIDA also states that, “the best treatment programmes provide a combination of therapies and other services that meet the needs of the individual patient”.
Residential treatment programmes such as the one our centre provides can also be very effective, especially if your case is a serious one.
A licensed residential treatment facility with services available 24/7 and at a moment’s notice will be able to catch medical emergencies and complications.
In our rehabilitation centre we firmly believe that to make progress quicker in drug or alcohol recovery, you must commit to the full programme.
It is an in-depth course into a new way of living, an immersion into a new lifestyle.
Taking on new challenges always feels better if you have support.
We will give you the best kind of support—professional, reliable and understanding.
What Happens After You Call Us
Unlike other websites that give you a number to call, when you ring us, you are talking to a member of our admissions team.
We will gladly answer any questions about pricing and services, about your plans and your thoughts on rehab.
If you agree to proceed, you should be on the way to rehab in 24 to 48 hours after the call.
Abbeycare The Hygrove is close to Chippenham, so it should not take long before you begin your recovery process.
We’ll give you ample time to settle in your room first, before we commence medical checks and detox.
Withdrawal symptoms will happen during detox, and this time is generally the physically toughest part of rehab.
But after a week or so, you will be feeling better enough to join more of the activities planned daily.
A typical day in rehab consists of two to three sessions. That can be group sessions or one-on-one sessions.
During the last week in rehab, we will collaborate on a rehab aftercare plan.
We want you to succeed, to beat alcohol and/or drug abuse.
To do this, we have to plan for the changes that will happen in your life now that you have decided to take charge of it.
After rehab, we continue to support you by providing:
- Links to Mutual Support Groups
- How to get help online and offline
- How to deal with cravings
- A plan to follow when you are triggered
- Dealing with minor set-backs
- How does detox work?
Generally, there are three stages of drug detox or rehab, during the first stage (within 8 hours), expect to have difficulty sleeping, headaches, and stomach upsets. During the second stage (three days to a week after you stop using alcohol or drugs), the symptoms you experienced in the first stage will lessen, and during stage three (a week after withdrawal) you can start to feel better.
Detox goes through these three stages because the body is gradually getting rid of the toxic substances you got used to or depended on.
The brain’s chemistry is changed by long-term usage of substances such as cocaine and diazepam (Valium).
Because your brain adjusted its system while you were using, it has to readjust now to the absence of the substances.
The good news is that for most people, the withdrawal symptoms ease up after a week.
It is best to be around medical support staff when you are in detox, like any professional rehab centre, they can anticipate your needs and watch out for warning signs that require attention.
- How can I proceed with detox without health insurance?
If you are not privately insured, then you can pay for the treatment with credit/debit card. Please ring us direct and we can discuss your payment options.
- What are the benefits of alcohol detox?
A lot of people suffer insomnia after detoxing from alcohol.
But within a month or so, many people report an improvement in the quality of sleep.
It’s easier to fall asleep, they sleep uninterrupted, and sleep more. Another benefit of detoxing from alcohol is having better skin.
Obviously, if you are convalescing from a liver problem and/or a heart condition due to alcohol consumption, you will hasten your body’s recovery.
- What medicines are used for detox?
Every client is assessed for the their individual detox needs.
Generally, a medication from the diazepine family is used on a sliding scale, to prevent risk of seizure, and minimise withdrawal symptoms.
