Alcohol rehab and drug rehab in West Midlands

Drugs and alcohol abuse doesn’t just affect you. Addiction affects the lives of everyone who is close to you, your job, mental health, and overall emotional well-being. If you find that you suffer withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to quit your addiction, it’s time to seek professional help.

Addiction is a powerful disease, and it’s okay to admit that you need the help of addiction specialists to understand why you abuse drugs and learn how to overcome the habit. A rehab centre is a therapeutic environment that helps you get clean from an addictive substance, and develop coping skills to prevent relapse. If you can’t afford private rehab, there are NHS and free options listed here that can help you started on your recovery journey.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

The Pros
Treatment plans are tailored to fit the addiction needs of the patient. Assessment and intake are comprehensive, to ensure you are treated in every aspect. Many rehab centres include a range of diverse therapies and specialised options to accommodate certain groups, such as pregnant women and LGBT members.
Patients at a private rehab enjoy more amenities than those undertaking a public programme. You’re more comfortable, relaxed, and enjoy greater access to addiction specialists, because the staff-to-patient ratio is higher at a private rehab than in a government programme.

The Cons
Even though your health is your greatest investment, you still have to be able to pay back any loans you took our to receive treatment. The cost of rehab might be too expensive if you don’t have insurance or a grant to reduce the burden of payment.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in the West Midlands?

The price of rehab is usually dependent on several factors, such as the size of the programme, type of facility, duration of treatment, amenities on offer, the speciality of staff, and the number of treatments provided. Rehab centres that offer more alternative therapies and amenities, such as fine dining, private rooms, massage therapy, and more, will cost more. The average price of rehab plus detox is £5,000-£7,000 for the first month. From the second month, some rehabs offer a discount, to encourage patients to choose longer-term rehab stays that increase their chances of maintaining long-term abstinence. Luxury/executive rehab programmes cost up to £10,000 a week, because of the comfort and amenities patients enjoy there.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

The rehab centre you choose to receive treatment at can either lead to success or failure for your treatment efforts. So, it is important that you consider all factors, and make this decision with the help a loved one, to ensure you’ve made the right choice. UK rehabs and addiction treatment centres require certification from the Quality Care Commission to treat any addictions. That’s the first criteria to tick off your list.

Ask rehab centres about their staff. The quality and experience of all staff should be top-notch. It’s the difference between mediocre treatment and excellent care that yields results. Doctors, counsellors, and therapist should be licensed to treat your addiction and cater to your specific treatment needs.

The cost of treatment is another factor to consider. The best rehab centres have found the balance between affordable treatment while still providing high quality. Compare prices between the rehabs of your choice, and choose one with a high rating and competitive price. You should also look into other features, such as the location of the rehab, number of therapies used in treatment, and type of facility.
