What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

At an inpatient addiction centre, you undergo an initial assessment to evaluate your needs and determine a personalised care plan. At Sanctuary Lodge, we provide one that is tailored to your unique situation. Once our team of addiction specialists has devised your programme and you have agreed with it, you will undergo detox. During this process, your body gets rid of the substance or substances you’ve been misusing.

In some cases, you may be given medication to help ease the symptoms associated with withdrawal from certain drugs. If you’ve been put off by the idea of going through withdrawal, you should know that residential rehab aims to minimize and help you control the adverse effects. Not only do you have 24/7 support from a dedicated staff, but you can also enjoy a pleasant, safe and calming environment.

Only once your body is no longer under the influence of substances can the rehabilitation process begin. (2) During inpatient rehab, you’ll take part in group activities and one-to-one therapy sessions, group therapy, and various activities. You will find a support network that’s going to help you to continue your recovery in the long term.

What Are the Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

  • Comfortable surroundings: Our facility is modern and decorated to a high standard throughout. We provide a home-from-home environment that enables you to relax and be yourself.
  • Medical support: You’ll receive around-the-clock support from our team. Your recovery is a priority, and by building a strong bond with the people who are treating you, you may also learn more about yourself.
  • Away from temptation: Sometimes, bad habits can be made worse because we get stuck in a rut. Not only does being in a residential facility prevent you from having access to drugs or alcohol, but it also gives you a break from your routine and the weight of being responsible for too much, breing always under pressure and stress. In residential rehab, you will be able to relax.
  • Structured days: One of the main benefits you can take home from rehab is the importance of routine and structure in your day. By immersing yourself in the routine and getting involved with all the group activities, you learn how beneficial healthy social interactions can be for your recovery.

The Cost of Private Rehab

Private rehab is more costly than some services that are offered by charities or not-for-profit organisations. However, they rarely have waiting lists, offer the highest level of care and have better success rates than free or low-cost options. Costs vary according to treatment options, so get in touch to find out how we can help you.

Luxury rehab can cost up to £12,000 per month, but it shouldn’t discourage you. There are less-pricey options where the level of care is just as high, and the staff are just as caring. Difference between luxury rehab and less-expensive private options is usually in the additional benefits (pools, gyms, bigger gardens and more.)

Can I get funding for Private Rehab?

In the United Kingdom, some insurance providers do cover the cost of treatment. It’s important to check directly with the company that supplies your insurance to determine what is covered. (3) You can however see what are the options for help with your GP as they are an informed medical representative.

Does the NHS Provide Residential Treatment Programmes?

NHS services are often an essential tool at the beginning of the addiction recovery process; your GP can provide some support and information on the steps you can take. While this is a significant milestone in recovery, the NHS does not provide residential facilities specifically targeted towards drug or substance addiction and rehabilitation.

On rare occasions, the NHS will fund your private treatment, although the process of applying for and receiving funding takes a considerable length of time. Getting help as soon as possible is imperative during addiction recovery, and waiting for weeks or months is not usually an option. (4)
