Rehabs in Devon County  

Similar to most regions in the UK, Devon is affected by prevalent alcohol and drug addiction. If you or your loved one are looking for addiction treatment, there's a variety of services that will help. 

Rehabs in Devon provide you with a personalised treatment plan so that you can deal with the physical and psychological consequences of drug and alcohol addiction. 

There are free and private alcohol and drug rehab services available in Devon County. The free services are not suitable for people with chronic drug and alcohol misuse. But Devon has a variety of private alcohol and drug rehab options that effectively treat substance abuse. 

What are the benefits of private alcohol rehab? 

Private alcohol rehab gives you person-centred treatment. People respond differently to drug and/or alcohol addiction. In addition to this, addiction leads to destructive behavioural issues that result in addiction.  

The physical and psychological consequences of drug and alcohol addiction make it near impossible to quit independently. The longer you persist with the alcohol and drug abuse, the more you take it, the harder it becomes to stop. 

Private alcohol rehab offers you a one-on-one treatment plan that's part of your recovery programme. This programme is customised to cater to your needs fully.

The plan begins with a comprehensive assessment conducted by a professional to determine your physical and psychological needs. 

Most people have substance misuse coupled with mental health issues. As such, a good private rehab facility will conduct a psychiatric evaluation to determine the most suitable treatment options for mental health issues and alcohol and/or drug addiction. 

During your recovery process at a private rehab in Devon, you'll benefit from fully confidential addiction treatment. Admission to Devon rehab is quick.

What's more, you'll experience a treatment that's delivered by a team of experts (i.e., addiction counsellors, psychiatrists, psychologists, physicians, nurses, social worker, etc.).

Private centres also provide you with resources and tools to help you lead a successful recovery once your recovery process ends. 

There are two types of private rehab programmes. There's inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient.

Your addiction treatment provider will help you identify the most suitable treatment programme for you, depending on your needs. 

Whether seeking treatment on an outpatient basis or as an inpatient, a good private rehab in Devon will ensure that you have all you need to make a full and sustainable recovery.

Private rehabs range from affordable rehabilitation facilities to luxurious types with high-end facilities. 

Mental health rehabilitation and recovery 

Rehab equips patients with the necessary tools that they need to lead a meaningful life. Most people turn to alcohol and drug use as a coping mechanism.

Moreover, national statistics show that nearly half of those with mental health issues also have a problem with drug or alcohol addiction and vice versa [1]. 

Residential rehabilitation allows you or your loved one to get treatment from a team of qualified professionals. These professionals include a psychiatrist and certified addiction specialists.

The rehab's qualified professionals will provide support and compassionate care to help patients begin healing and work towards long-term recovery. 

Devon residents have access to a range of services, including counselling that leverages cognitive behavioural therapy and other holistic therapies.

Those seeking mental health and addiction treatment support can find the right support through free NHS services or private rehab.

The treatments are suitable for the individual and family members who have been harmed by the loved one’s alcohol or drug abuse. 

Mental health rehabilitation and recovery treatments aim to lower symptoms, lessen distress, and support individuals to lead fulfilling lives. 

Drug and alcohol rehab treatment options 

When searching for addiction treatments, feel free to inquire about the treatment options available for you.

A good Devon alcohol or drug rehab should have different therapeutic models to assist those with mental health issues.  

The rehab facility should specialise in dual diagnosis so that they can treat mental health and addiction simultaneously.

Furthermore, the rehab treatment centre should be licensed to offer drug and alcohol addiction treatments coupled with mental health cases. 

In addition to this, a good rehab in Devon should provide a range of treatment types. 

Although each recovery facility has unique services, they all offer basic treatment types such as: 

  • Long-term and short-term rehabilitation services. Long-term inpatient treatment care typically lasts for 28 days. Long-term addictions' treatment lasts about three months, six months or up to a year. 
  • Inpatient detoxification. Medical professionals administer medical-assisted detox to help you manage the withdrawal symptoms from drugs or alcohol. 
  • Outpatient treatment programmes. Residents of Devon and other towns across the UK have access to various outpatient programmes, e.g., day-care services, intensive outpatient programmes. 
  • Individualised drug counselling. This treatment focuses on individualised therapy to help the patient address areas in life that have been disrupted with the addiction, e.g., family issues, employment status, illegal cases etc. 
  • Group therapy. Group counselling is integral to achieving a meaningful life. Most addiction treatment centres allow patients to form support groups and engage in group counselling to promote a substance-free life.

Commonly asked questions 

How much does rehab cost? 

The cost of treatment varies depending on the facility. Typically, treatment costs around £8,000 – £12,000 for a 28-day residential rehab. This is the cost if you pay for a single-occupancy rehab.

Alternatively, multiple occupancy rehab costs around £6,000 for the same period. Some rehab centres charge around £1,500 – £3,000 per week. Home detox typically costs about £1,500. 

What can I bring into rehab? 

Each treatment centre has its own rules about what to bring to rehab. Although there are differences, there are some similarities. Most treatment centres recommend you get a list containing the names and addresses of those involved in your care.

You should carry comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing that would sustain you for seven days. You're also required to bring 30 days’ worth of personal hygiene and beauty products. 

Some items are prohibited during your stay, e.g., cell phones and laptops, cleaning supplies, clothing with profanity or references to violence or drugs, etc. 

You can reach out to your treatment centre of choice in Devon for a packing checklist and a list of prohibited items. 

Is a 28-day rehab long enough? 

The simple answer is yes. The 28 days worth of therapy, support and treatments are enough for you to uncover the underlying causes of addiction.

This time is enough for you to develop coping skills that will help you overcome substance abuse. Most addiction treatments' centres have programmes designed to run for 28-days.

These programmes are effective, especially if the individual has never sought rehab before. Still, there are cases where the 28-days are not enough.

For instance, if the patient has mental health problems or had sought residential rehabilitation before but relapsed. 

Why should I choose a local rehab in Devon? 

Devon recovery centres are the best because they provide you with treatment near home. What this means is that you get to seek treatment near your family and loved ones.

A top-notch CQC registered facility offers a home-like setting. Some centres are located away from city life, giving you time to focus on recovery.
