To break free from the scourge of addiction, you need to first and foremost demonstrate some level of commitment in seeking help. Once you’re at this stage, there’s a high chance that you’ll make a full recovery. At this point, the first thing you should do is speak to a qualified professional. Your General Practitioner or family doctor is naturally the first place to look. However, there are many addiction-related practices in and around Lincolnshire where professionals are experienced in listening to people like you and helping find a lasting solution to your addiction. If your addiction is considered to be mild, you’ll be recommended to undergo outpatient care. However, moderate to severe cases of addiction almost always require inpatient treatment.
As is the case with most parts of the UK, addiction is a major concern in Lincolnshire. The Lincolnshire County Council website includes links to various centres or groups that can help you find a suitable treatment facility. Fortunately, there is a sizeable number of charity based addiction treatment centres in Lincolnshire. They are funded by donations, grants and government-issued contracts. Addaction is one of such, providing free alcohol and drug abuse treatment in partnership with local government. Double Impact Recovery is another body that works with Addaction to ensure recovering addicts can better reintegrate into society. Re-Solv meanwhile works in collaboration with Addaction and focuses on helping individuals addicted to solvents and other volatile substances. Also, the Gordon Moody Association focuses on helping gamblers to break free from their addiction.
There are also several private rehab centres in and around Lincolnshire that help addicts to access treatment faster. They are also a good option for when free or charity based rehab facilities can’t handle an addiction case or when they’re already booked up. At Oasis Recovery, we are one of the best in this regard. Oasis is fully focused on helping people with all types of addiction to quickly access comprehensive and long-lasting treatment.
At Oasis Recovery, we place emphasis on safety and comfort when it comes to addiction treatment. We understand the fact that addiction treatment can be very challenging – and in some cases, even life-threatening. This is why we’ve created a private rehab facility that’s not just comfortable, but staffed with some of the most qualified personnel in the addiction niche. Whatever the stage of addiction, we can help you to detox and recover without risking your overall wellbeing.
Our spacious facility is located in picturesque Runcorn, 144 miles from Lincolnshire via the A52. It is roughly a three-hour drive to our facility, so we make provisions for a sober transport service to bring you on the day of check-in and take you home after rehab is complete.
The major advantage to private rehab is the fact that you’re guaranteed personalised treatment, tailored to your specific needs. All members of staff are well trained in the provision of bespoke care, based on the recommendations of qualified medical personnel working in or with the facility. Medical professionals are also available round-the-clock to ensure treatment programmes are in tune with your wellbeing. The underlying causes of addiction are also better treated in this type of environment. Also, private rehabs generally run more programmes than free or charity based provision, not focusing only on detox and withdrawal. They include programmes based on holistic treatment, fitness, mindfulness and more.
The main disadvantage to private rehab centres is the fact they are not free and can prove costly. This is dependent on the rehab facility in question, their programmes and the extent of your addiction. However, in some cases, you may end up needing to pay thousands of pounds to access treatment. This has discouraged many from seeking treatment especially when their case doesn’t quite fit into those that can be handled by any of the addiction-related charities around Lincolnshire. However, this shouldn’t be the case. Treatment should never be ignored on the grounds of cost. Talk to a private rehab and access your payment options.
The cost of rehabilitation in Lincolnshire is dependent on the facility in question. There are some government-backed and private charity rehabs that provide free or greatly subsidised addiction treatment. For instance, Addaction offers free addiction treatment for all services it provides. On the other hand, those such as Gordon Moody expect you to cover the cost of accommodation during your stay in rehab, though other services are provided free of charge. However, private rehabs without any external funding sources cover their own costs and operate a payment structure at their discretion. This is why it’s possible to find a considerable disparity in overall pricing. You should generally expect to pay between £3500 and £7000 for a month of private rehab.
In collaboration with Lincolnshire County Council, Addaction offers free treatment and residential rehab to addicted individuals in the area. The addiction recovery programme run by this charity is fairly comprehensive, covering initial consultations, detox and withdrawal, therapies, relapse prevention, general education, and more.
Re-Solv is another organisation that can provide free addiction treatment. However, they only work with people addicted to solvents or other volatile substances. For gamblers, the Gordon Moody Association is the closest thing to free/NHS gambling addiction treatment, as patients just have to pay for accommodation.
Breakeven: This group provides counselling services for addiction sufferers and their families in conjunction with Gamcare.
Addaction: The group provides support to the families of people affected by alcohol and drug abuse. They also offer advice on how the addicted individuals can be better supported. The youth branch of the service is the Addiction Youth Hub, which provides treatment and rehabilitation for people aged 24 and below.
Gordon Moody Association: This group provides support for people affected by gambling addiction.
The success or failure of your addiction recovery hinges heavily on your choice of the recovery programme. The assessment stage is when this decision is taken. This is why you should first speak with a qualified addiction professional or your GP before you make any decision. If it’s established during the consultation process that your addiction is a mild one, you’ll be best served to choose an outpatient programme. Whilst being treated on an outpatient basis, you will only be required to visit the facility on select days to take part in programmes that have been mapped out for you. When you’ve made good progress, the regular sessions will be replaced by support group sessions nearby. Outpatient addiction recovery programmes can be held at your local clinic or a designated rehab facility.
For more severe cases of addiction, you’ll be required to check into an inpatient or residential addiction treatment facility. When being treated on an inpatient basis, you need to carefully make any decisions. The choice of rehab and the programmes offered will likely determine whether you’ll achieve your desired goals or not. So, choose a rehabilitation centre with a proven track record of providing bespoke recovery programmes that work. The rehab centre should also be fully accredited and one that employs suitably qualified members of staff. Pay attention to other details, such as aftercare provisions, choice of accommodation, the location of the rehab centre and other such minutiae that can make the difference between a fruitful period in rehab and a waste of time and resources.
