Rehab in Suffolk

You no longer have to endure the adverse effects of drugs and alcohol misuse, if you’re in Suffolk, as there are available treatment options that can help you attain freedom from addiction.

Addiction is a severe disease, but one that is 100% treatable. Treatment options through public and private services are easily accessible, and have proven very effective over the years. Intensive inpatient care through private rehab involves dedicated detox programmes that will help you through withdrawal, and holistic therapies that will address the causes and effects of your addiction, introduce you to a sober state, and teach you the skills to help you remain that way.

There are also other local options, such as support groups and counselling services that will prove helpful in keeping you on track. We will provide details of the services we offer at Sanctuary Lodge, as well as other effective recovery engagements available in Suffolk.

A Brief Overview of Our Rehab Services in Suffolk

Sanctuary Lodge is a state-of-the-art rehab facility with one of the best addiction treatment teams in the UK. Our rehab is built with the purpose of providing unmatched care, that makes the recovery process engaging and exciting. We offer an integrated drug and alcohol detox, with every detail put in place on site to see you stabilised for your rehab.

We treat various different types of addictions, including alcohol use disorder, drug addiction including prescription drugs, behavioural addictions such as sex, gaming, gambling, and internet addictions; and advanced conditions that include codependency and dual diagnosis.

If you’re going through any of these issues, we guarantee that you can break free through the help and care of our experienced professionals. Our environment will also help you as you make it through recovery. We have modern furnishings and amenities that will make your residence at our clinic homely and emotionally fulfilling. These facilities include luxury bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, dedicated rooms for group and individual sessions, a gym, and a picturesque outdoor space for recreation and relaxation.
Our rehab services include different intensive therapies that are streamlined to your unique case of addiction. Some of the therapies you’ll likely go through include 12-step therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy, family programme, and art therapy.

We also provide additional support through our one-year aftercare programme, to help you properly adjust to life without drugs. Our Fenton House is available if you choose to prolong your stay in recovery.

Our rehab is located in Halstead, Essex, which is only 26 miles away from Suffolk, and you can get here in less than an hour on road via the B115 road and A131.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

Private rehab facilities offer a better path to recovery than public options, as a result of their bespoke professional services and dedication to comfort. Low to no-cost residential facilities and treatment programmes organised by charities are often too crowded, and could have living situations that may make you feel uncomfortable. There’s also the added frustration that may occur from your waiting for weeks to months before you can get in.

At private rehabs, admissions are processed quickly, and your treatment could begin in as little as 24 hours. With Sanctuary Lodge, we have a provision in place that can see you gain immediate entry. Our rehab offers premier comfort and services that go beyond inpatient care. Some of the extra benefits you can enjoy when you receive treatment from us include:

  • Free transport service from your location in Suffolk
  • Rehab in a luxury building, with homely amenities such as a gym, Wi-Fi, and spacious bedrooms with ensuite baths
  • Staff to client ratio of 3 to 1
  • Access to some of the most renown addiction professionals in the UK
  • Recreational activities such as sports and art
  • Free year-long aftercare programme
  • Family support
  • Some Private Rehab Concerns

The main concerns that some people are faced with regarding private rehabs are the costs, payment methods, and types of treatment services provided. At Sanctuary Lodge, our treatment fees are structured to mirror the level of care that you receive, and are varied according to treatment type and duration. Our staff will talk you through these options and provide the payment methods we accept when you give us a call. We’re confident you’ll find something that works for you.

We also offer different treatment services for a broad spectrum of addiction, which go as far as covering mental disorders and behavioural addictions.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Suffolk?

The cost of rehab is largely dependent on a number of factors. They include:

  • The service you get treatment from
  • The duration of your treatment
  • The kind of facility where you receive treatment
  • The type of therapies and treatment received

Treatment for addiction varies according to the type of addiction involved, and this goes on to reflect in how much you spend for the service. But these mainly apply to private addiction services. Public programmes such as NHS and community funded support services are typically free. Charity rehabs also come at reduced to no cost at all. However, you should note that some difficulties are present when going through these routes. They include:

  • Long admission processes that can last for weeks and months
  • No guarantee that you’ll be sponsored to get residential treatment
  • Some programmes are restricted to only outpatient services, which do not help in moderate to severe cases of addiction
  • Social situations could be unconducive
  • You may go from one clinic to the other for different treatments
  • Restricted access to doctors and counsellors

While private rehabs are not free, they do come with more advantages than public options, and offer a better chance at recovery. At Sanctuary Lodge, we make sure our services are up to standard, and place high value on the safe and successful recovery of our clients. We understand that to achieve this, comfort has to be present. Which is why we have spared no expense in furnishing our rehab with modern amenities and cutting-edge rehabilitation provisions.

While you may have to spend a sum for your rehab, the value of your well-being and general health surpasses the monetary costs of any rehab programme.

Free/NHS Addiction Treatment Options in Suffolk

Turning Point Suffolk Wellbeing Cloud (Suffolk Recovery Network): This is Suffolk’s Integrated Drug and Alcohol Misuse service. They work to provide support and help for individuals who are concerned about their drug and alcohol use.

Addiction Support Groups in Suffolk

The benefits of addiction support groups to your recovery efforts are numerous. Talking and listening to people who are going through the same issues as you will prove very helpful in keeping you focused and motivated. Hard times can happen even when you’ve undergone treatment, which means you’ll need all the emotional assistance available to you.

Support groups involve meetings where peers come together to share their experiences, and help each other find solace and support. These groups are not handled by professionals, but have proven to be a godsend to addicts looking to remain clean. They are free to attend and are held on a weekly basis across Suffolk. These groups include:

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): A self-help group where recovering alcoholics come together to provide mutual support to one another. AA is a globally recognised society that has been helping people since its inception in 1935. The fellowship follows the 12-step principle to provide guidance to members struggling with a drinking problem. Membership is free, and there are numerous meeting venues spread across the county.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA): This is also an international mutual aid organisation that follows the same 12-step therapy as AA, but is dedicated to recovering drug addicts. This self-help group is also free to attend, and is held weekly in different parts of Suffolk.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

Addiction varies from individual to individual, as everyone experiences different causes and consequences from their substance misuse. As a result, it is crucial that you make the right choice when considering recovery programmes to go through. A programme that does not adequately tackle your situation could see your cycle of addiction triggered again.

Recovery programmes in Suffolk are numerous, and provide different forms of treatment. These programmes range from free public funded services and charity support, to private rehab. Some treatment options are restricted to only outpatient programmes, which provide a limited level of help. Inpatient programmes are more intensive, and offer a higher chance at recovery, regardless of your situation. There are, however, cases such as dual diagnosis that call for specialised treatment.

The process of weighing different options and choosing the right treatment, can be overwhelming and put a lot of pressure on you. But, with professional help, you can be pushed into making the right decision. Your GP is a good place to start, as they can carry out an evaluation and recommend an ideal treatment plan. Our confidential helpline can also be of tremendous help, as we are available 24/7 to provide information and advice concerning your situation.

An inpatient programme through a private rehab will give you a better chance at recovery than any other method. At Sanctuary Lodge, you’ll receive the highest level of care possible. We have specialists that take care of advanced addiction cases, such as codependency and dual diagnosis. Please give us a call today, or call an addiction specialist, to secure a clear path towards recovery.
