Residential Alcohol And Drug Rehab Guide For Hampshire

Addiction is a progressive disease. This means that, the longer you wait to receive treatment, the more uncomfortable the eventual withdrawal symptoms will be. You will also require intensive, specialised care, and a longer rehab stay to deal with the damages caused by your addiction. The sooner you receive treatment, the easier it is to rebuild the relationships broken by addiction, treat the physical damage, and address mental health issues.

Rehab centres are equipped with excellent counsellors, recovery workers, therapists, nurses and doctors. Addicts risk premature death from physical damage and overdose. Those who survive face life with a debilitating illness, that is sometimes irreversible. Inpatient rehab centres help you understand why you started using, and highlight coping techniques to prevent a relapse.

Rehab prepares you for abstinence, surrounds you with other patients who are going through similar situations, and helps you escape from the vicious cycle of an environment that enables addiction.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

The Pros

Repairing broken relationships with loved ones: Private rehab centres in Hampshire, and its surroundings, understand the importance of including your family in treatment. Several types of family therapy, such as couples therapy and multidimensional family therapy, are used to build trust and work through all issues that might trigger drug/alcohol use.

Holistic therapies: Thanks to innovation in addiction research, there are alternative and holistic therapies that complement traditional therapy models. At a private rehab, you’ll have access to most of these services, which help to reduce cravings for the drug, make you comfortable during your stay, and teach you sustainable ways to live a healthy life after treatment.

Therapeutic environment: Most of our bedrooms at Sanctuary Lodge overlook the parklands and surrounding countryside. A therapeutic environment is serene and devoid of drugs and alcohol, to prevent relapse.

Aftercare services: Aftercare support is at the heart of any treatment plan. When you’ve completed your rehab stay, we at Sanctuary Lodge offer a complimentary one-year aftercare plan to help you maintain abstinence. This includes continued therapy sessions, pharmacology, 12-step meetings, group therapy, and more.

The Cons

  • The high cost of treatment
  • Having to establish social connections with people you don’t know

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Hampshire?

The cost of treatment depends on the number of therapies used, duration of stay, location of rehab, type of programme, and staff to patient ratio. Many insurers cover the cost of addiction treatment, but you can also look into crowdfunding, government grant, rehab scholarships, and financial aid from loved ones to supplement the costs that aren’t covered by your insurer.

Standard rehab costs between £5,000-£7,000 a month, and £1,000-£1,500 a week. Luxury programmes, where you enjoy more amenities, are expensive. Prices start from £10,000-£15,000 a week.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

Type of programme: Which programme will positively maximise treatment outcome? Inpatient rehab is the best, because it is more comprehensive and regimented. The risk of relapse is also lower.

Continuing care: When looking at rehabs, it’s easy to get distracted by beautiful ads. Keep your eye on the price. Look for rehab centres that offer aftercare services, as these help you maintain long-term abstinence.

Customised treatment: Your treatment plan should be customised, or designed, to fit your needs. Subsequently, a specialised rehab centre that caters to your specific addiction increases your chances of recovery.

Ask questions and read reviews: Go to the Google or review page of the rehab centre to see what past patients are saying about their service. These will offer valuable insight into what is actually provided at the rehab facility, versus vague online advertisement.
