Living with an addiction to alcohol or drugs is an extremely difficult challenge. You’ll likely be suffering physically and psychologically as your finances, career, and relationships with loved ones also deteriorate.

Is Private Rehab the Right Decision?

When choosing where to undergo your rehabilitation, you’re ultimately faced with two options. You can opt to receive treatment from the NHS, or you can decide to join a private alcohol and drug rehab clinic.

Both are feasible options, however, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Firstly, if you request addiction treatment with the NHS, this will be low-cost or free treatment. Whilst this may seem great, the cheapest option isn’t always the most effective, particularly when it comes to addiction treatment.

Because this treatment option is free, it’s attractive to a lot of people which means that waiting times are very high. Combined with the pressures on the NHS and their lack of resources and funds, you could be waiting months to receive your addiction treatment.

These limited resources also mean that when you do begin your outpatient treatment, you’ll receive a generic treatment programme which hasn’t been tailored to your unique needs meaning you’re not receiving the most beneficial therapies for an effective recovery.

Whilst there is obviously an associated cost with private drug and alcohol rehab, this method typically works out as the best value for your time and efforts as you’re much more likely to achieve a long-term recovery on your first attempt than you are with a treatment programme from the NHS.

At a private drug and alcohol rehab, you benefit from a team of addiction specialists who provide you with 24/7 care and support. You’ll receive the highest quality, evidence-based therapies within a carefully tailored treatment programme to ensure the most effective recovery possible.

With a private rehab centre, you’ll also have the option to join as an inpatient where you stay overnight at our facility for the duration of your treatment programme.

Most successful recoveries from drug and alcohol addiction come from inpatient rehab as you can completely detach yourself from the daily stresses of homelife and solely focus on your rehabilitation.


What Types of Therapies are Available?

At one of our drug and alcohol rehabs in Bakewell, we will conduct a pre-screening assessment as part of our admissions process to review your physical and psychological health before you begin your treatment programme.

This assessment helps us to get to know you and to understand your addiction in more detail, thus helping us to design the most beneficial plan for you to follow.

We deliver a wide range of therapies which address your physical and psychological connections with drugs or alcohol, and that also improve your general well-being.

You’ll usually begin your treatment plan with a drug or alcohol detoxification to remove your physical attachment to the substance. A detox has proven to be the most effective way to cleanse your body of the harmful toxins that come with drug or alcohol consumption.

By gradually reducing your substance intake, you can safely work through your cravings and eventually end up with no consumption of drugs or alcohol at all.

When you experience an alcohol or drug detox, you’ll likely occur withdrawal symptoms, some of which can be very dangerous which is why it’s so important to undergo a detox only ever under professional supervision with the support of a medical team.

Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms are nausea, dizziness, headaches, seizures, insomnia, and in severe cases, delirium tremens (the DTs).

Psychological and well-being therapies will follow your detox which can include dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), individual, group, or family therapy, stress management, relapse prevention, mediation therapy, art therapy, music therapy, nutritional supplement therapy, and relaxation and sleep management.


Can Addiction Affect Mental Health

Throughout your drug and alcohol rehabilitation, it’s essential that your mental health is taken care of. We often see people who come to us for addiction treatment, also suffering from mental health problems.

These two problems are commonly seen together, and we’re trained to help you manage both conditions simultaneously. If you are suffering from both an addiction to alcohol or drugs and problems with your mental health, then we refer to this as a dual diagnosis.

A dual diagnosis is very common and is nothing we can’t help you overcome. This usually occurs when someone who is suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction experiences psychological issues because of their extensive substance abuse.

Likewise, when someone is living with mental health problems, they may turn to drink or drug taking as a coping mechanism which can quickly turn into a dependency or an addiction to the substance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Addiction Be Cured?
Due to the fact that addiction is a chronic illness, the threat of relapse will always be there. Although, learning how to keep the threat of relapse at bay will come to be second nature with the help of relapse prevention planning at a professional rehabilitation centre.
How do I begin my path to recovery?
Quite simply, you begin your path to recovery by actually picking up the phone and making contact with us. Once you contact us and express an interest in recovering, then our staff can get you set up with the perfect treatment plan in a rehabilitation centre which is best suited for you. However, if you don’t reach out to us then we cannot start helping you.
How do you convince someone to go to rehab?
Alcohol and drug addiction is often accompanied by a sense of denial and, even if you accept that you need help, it can be daunting to take that first step. If the person is in denial about the extent of their problem, a guided intervention can sometimes be useful. We also offer family and friend referrals that can let you set the ball rolling if you are concerned about somebody close to you.
