Rehab in Surrey

Saying that you can quit substance abuse anytime you want, but never being able to follow through on that decision, is a major sign of dependence. The chemical changes in your brain create a strong craving for drugs or alcohol that pushes you to keep using, even when you don’t want to. Addiction is a powerful mental illness, that takes control of your life and destroys your relationships with your loved ones.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

The Pros

The first benefit of private rehab is that you don’t have to wait for treatment. You will be assessed and checked in on the same day. The quality of care is at the highest level. Your treatment plan is not generic either, but rather customised to address all your particular addiction needs, and it maximises all efforts in the rehab centre. The therapeutic environment and serenity of the rehab facility will make you feel at peace, and more focused on the journey ahead. You don’t have to worry about privacy, because your details are confidential.

The Cons

Money is a major issue, and the high cost of rehab prevents many people from accessing specialised treatment. If you’ve never been away from home, it also might take some time to adjust to living in a facility, surrounded by strangers, or people from different backgrounds. You will also have to adjust to the highly disciplined structure that guides activities in a rehab centre.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Surrey?

British citizens and tax-paying residents are entitled to free alcohol and drug treatment from the NHS. However, if you need specialised and comprehensive treatment to adequately address all areas of your addiction, private rehabs in Surrey can help.
The price for inpatient treatments start from £1,000. If you require detox, the price could increase to £2,500 a week. One-month rehab costs between £5,000-£7,000 on average, and luxury programmes cost up to £10,000 a week. The price of rehab is determined by the size of the programme, amenities on offer, staff-to-patient ratio, the location of the rehab centre, and staff expertise.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

A few questions to ask when considering your options for rehab include:

  • Is the rehab centre licensed?
  • This is the first feature to look out for in a UK rehab centre. All treatment centres in the UK must be registered and inspected by the Quality Care Commission, or Health Improvement Scotland. You should also ask for the licenses and qualifications of the staff. Are they qualified to treat your specific addiction and any co-occurring disorders?
  • Staff-to-patient ratio
  • A great feature of luxury rehab is that they have a higher staff to patient ratio, which ensures each patient receives the highest quality of care, and gets as much time as possible with their treatment team. In some luxury rehabs, you might have a dedicated person to manage your recovery.

Do they incorporate many therapies in treatment?

A comprehensive treatment plan incorporates as many traditional and alternative therapies as possible. This includes Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, mindfulness-based meditation, art therapy, and more.
