Alcohol rehab and drug rehab in South Yorkshire

If you’re hiding your drug use, lashing out at loved ones when you don’t have access to drugs, dipping into your family savings to fund your addiction, or increasing your dose every day to feel the euphoric high you need, you will probably need professional help to quit substance abuse and/or alcohol abuse.

Drug and alcohol rehab helps you achieve freedom from addiction, sets you on the right path to recovery, resolves legal troubles, helps you acquire skills that make you employable, mends broken relationships with loved ones, and helps you learn coping skills to manage stress and triggers without resorting to drug use.

Rehab Treatment Services as Oasis Rehab

The staff at Oasis Recovery Clinic have a passion for saving lives. Most of the clinical team are former addicts who have maintained abstinence for a long period of time. The Cheshire rehab centre is a large therapeutic community set in the heart of Runcorn, to ensure that you don’t feel isolated from society whilst in recovery.

The admission team is on standby 24/7, so whatever time of the day you need help for addiction, we are always here for you. We treat addiction to alcohol, cannabis, opiates, benzodiazepines, new psychoactive substances, anxiety, depression, codependency, panic attacks, dual diagnosis, over the counter medicine, and more. We also cater to teenagers and adolescents who need help with behavioural addictions, eating addiction, and substance abuse.

We are one of the few UK rehabs that work with young people aged 16-18 to treat eating disorders and other addictions. Your treatment plan will include medical detox to remove all harmful substances from your body, and detection and treatment of mental health issues along with rehabilitation. We incorporate both traditional and alternative therapy models in our treatment. These include:

  • 12-step programmes
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Nutrition therapy
  • Mindfulness-based meditation and more.

The journey from South Yorkshire to Runcorn takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes, if you’re driving. Oasis Recovery Community provides a sober transport service that will take you from South Yorkshire to Runcorn in under two hours, and take you home upon discharge.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

The Pros

Private rehab centres are thorough when it comes to the care of patients. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’re on your way to recovery. South Yorkshire rehabs don’t just treat physical signs of addiction, but also incorporate holistic techniques to address every aspect of the patient’s needs, including emotional and mental wellbeing.

Private rehabs rarely have a waiting list. When they do, it’s usually short, unlike NHS options where patients have to wait months to receive treatment. You can even enrol the same day to receive treatment.

One of the best features of private rehab is the privacy. Your detox, therapy, and treatment are all private. In state programmes, community detox and community prescribing are the norm. You also have to share accommodation with strangers.

The Cons

The only con to private rehab is the cost of treatment, which is expensive. If you’ve never been away from home, it might take a while to settle in, and start participating in treatment programmes.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in South Yorkshire?

Private rehabs are self-funded, so they are more expensive than state-funded rehab. The benefit to these rehab centres is that patients enjoy the highest quality of care, from some of the best addiction counsellors in South Yorkshire.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

A few questions to ask when choosing a rehab centre include:

Inpatient or outpatient treatment

The answer to this question depends on your treatment needs. Do you require specialised treatment? Have you combined drugs? Do you have any co-occurring disorders? Have you tried to quit in the past and failed, or have you recently relapsed? If yes to any of these, inpatient treatment is for you. Outpatient treatment is suited for those who have a mild addiction, or who are high functioning addicts whose drug/alcohol use has not affected their personal life.

Luxury rehab or standard rehab

Whilst both treatments are excellent, there is a slight difference amongst them. Luxury rehab programmes offer more in terms of amenities and comfort. You have access to in-house gyms, a swimming pool, fining dining, large private rooms, massage therapy, nutrition therapy, animal therapy, music & art therapy, and more. They go above and beyond conventional treatment techniques to maximise all treatment efforts, whilst ensuring your comfort in the centre.

Accreditation of the rehab centre

Before trimming down your list, ensure that all the rehab centres you’re looking at are accredited to treat your specific addiction or dual diagnosis. Addiction specialists should equally be licensed to practice.
