Local Residential Alcohol And Drug Rehab In Dorset

One of the reasons why private rehabilitation is so successful is because treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. There is an underlying reason why you started drinking or abusing drugs, and until you highlight and address all issues that trigger abuse, your recovery will always be in jeopardy.

Rehab centres can help you make a full recovery from addiction and teach you practical coping skills to avoid relapse after you’re discharged from treatment. Most of the counsellors are former addicts, who use their experience with addiction to help you through withdrawal and detox, as well as cope with cravings during rehab. If you live in Dorset and can’t afford private treatment, you’ll find numerous free options for drug and alcohol treatment in this post.

Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

Many addicts who require specialised care don’t receive effective treatment via community detox or outpatient services. Private rehab centres are thorough when it comes to taking care of your needs. Your treatment plan is comprehensive to ensure it covers every aspect of your addiction. This includes physical, emotional and psychological aspects that could negatively impact the outcome of treatment.

A therapeutic environment and the incorporation of holistic therapy also aid recovery efforts. You’ll have speedy access to care professionals who are on site 24/7 to provide support whenever you need it.

Private rehab centres are more expensive than government-funded options.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Dorset?

There is no set price for drug and alcohol rehabilitation in the UK. Patients who require extra therapy and are attending rehab in an urban setting will usually pay more. The same applies to those who are attending a luxury rehab programme that offers more amenities. To reduce the burden of payment, contact your insurer to determine what is covered by your policy. Most insurers cover the full or partial cost of private treatment, depending on the limits of your cover.
The cost of treatment for most rehab centres ranges between £1,000 and £1,700 per week. Luxury rehab centres where patients enjoy amenities such as massages, fine dining, private rooms, spa, swimming pool and gym can pay between £10,000 and £15,000 per week for treatment.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

There are several factors to consider when choosing a rehab centre. These include:

The size of the programme: Smaller rehab centres are able to provide more specialised care, because the staff-to-patient ratio is higher. Meanwhile, larger rehab centres treat more addictions and dual diagnosis cases. If you need more one-on-one time with counsellors or a specialised treatment, this could be the ideal rehab option for you.

Cost: The cost of treatment usually decides whether a patient will attend rehab and the duration for which they can afford. When considering a rehab centre, look for top quality programmes with good ratings and high success rates. Compare prices amongst rehabs of equal standing to determine an affordable price.

Accreditation and certifications:
All UK rehab facilities have to be inspected and registered with the Care Quality Commission. Therefore, look into the qualifications and experience of the staff who’ll be treating you. They should be licensed to treat your specific addiction.
