Local Residential Alcohol And Drug Rehab In Kent

Drugs are chemical substances that affect your body and brain. Most addictive substances possess mood-altering properties that alter the way you act. When you abuse drugs and alcohol, your brain releases more dopamine than usual, which makes you feel pleasure and a euphoric “high”. As time passes, you’ll require larger doses to feel the original effect. Everything else around you begin to blur into insignificance as you become preoccupied with the next high.

The first step to overcome your addiction is to admit that you need professional help. Private rehab centres in Kent have the best medical professionals and experienced drug counsellors who can help you. Some of these counsellors are former addicts who use their experience with addiction to help you develop sustainable healthy habits that lead to an abstinent life.

Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

Effective treatment: Detoxing at home is not safe. Neither you nor your carer has the medical qualifications to take action in the case of an emergency. Rehab centres provide access to some of the most experienced doctors who design a comprehensive detox plan to ensure you get effective treatment and monitor you throughout the process.

Holistic treatment: Private rehabs treat your soul, body, spirit and mind. A balanced meal is a part of that process; same as fitness programmes, music and art therapy. These are alternative therapies that complement traditional techniques.

Aftercare services: Aftercare is an important part of private treatment. It is the support you receive after you’ve completed treatment to ensure you maintain recovery efforts and continue receiving treatment.

 How Much Does Rehab Cost in Kent?

Th cost of rehab depends on several factors such as the type of treatment (inpatient or outpatient), type of rehab (standard or luxury), location of rehab centre (city centre or rural area), detox services, size of the programme and expertise of staff. Treatment centres in cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and London cost more. If you’re staying in rehab for the recommended period of three months, you’ll spend more money than a patient who stays for one month.

Standard rehabs cost roughly £1,000-£1,500 a week. This covers room, detox, therapies and feeding. Luxury rehabs cost between £10,000 – £15,000 a week because they offer more amenities such as dedicated recovery worker, mountainside locations with panoramic views, luxury spas, massages, horse riding, access to phone and workstation, gym, swimming pool and more.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

Customised Treatment: Your treatment needs are different from the next patient. Your rehab centre of choice should have staff who have experience and are licensed to treat your addiction.

How is your treatment plan created? A sign that a rehab centre won’t work is if they use a generic approach to treat your addiction. Ideally, your treatment plan should be developed with your input, your detox needs and recovery goals.

Around the clock care: An essential feature of a private rehab is the ability to provide 24-hour support to all patients in the clinic. This guarantees that patients always access treatment and support when they need it.

Therapies: Counselling and therapy is a core aspect of any drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme. Your preferred treatment centre should incorporate a range of holistic therapy designed to treat your addiction and equip you with tools to live an abstinent life.
