If you’re dealing with substance abuse or alcoholism, you’ve probably wondered what might be the worst that could happen when you’re in the throes of addiction. Whilst many people begin as recreational users, the journey into compulsive drug use is not usually a conscious decision. Addiction is characterised by a loss of control over drug use and continued usage that is detrimental to a person’s health. Potential side effects include organ damage, cancer, fertility issues, gastrointestinal disease, HIV, brain damage and more.
Thankfully, rehab centres can help you overcome addiction. You’ll come to understand why you abused drugs, as well as learn coping skills to manage triggers and sustainable habits that will guide you after rehab is complete. Rehab centres offer structure to help you focus better. A team of support staff are on-call and available 24/7, throughout the day. There is no access to drugs or alcohol, so you can fully focus on getting better.
Start your recovery journey today by calling our addiction helpline. One of our counsellors will help you find the right treatment option that fully caters to your unique addiction needs.

A major benefit of private rehab is the support all inpatients receive. You won’t go through recovery on your own but are surrounded by patients and staff who will support you to reach your recovery goals. This type of treatment also protects your privacy and ensures you receive treatment away from the prying eyes of the public.
Notably, inpatient treatment has been shown to produce more positive outcomes than other types of treatment. Patients go through recovery applying sustainable techniques that help them maintain recovery after treatment. Techniques include relapse prevention, nutrition therapy, coping skills technique, harm reduction, skills training, education classes and the incorporation of alternative therapies such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
The cost of treatment depends on several factors, such as the location of the rehab facility, type of treatment offered, staff-to-patient ratio, size of the programme and expertise of staff. Look at your insurance policy to determine what exactly your insurer will cover and sort out all financial arrangements before rehab begins.
The average cost of standard treatment in Newport ranges from £1,000 to £1,500 per week. Monthly rehab cost between £5,000 and £7,000 for a 30-day programme. Luxury rehab programmes are more expensive because they offer extra amenities such as in-house swimming pool/gym, animal therapy, fine dining experiences and more. Treatment ranges from £10,000 to £15,000 per week.

Addiction specialists always advise potential clients to look for a rehab centre that offers quality addiction treatment, rather than choosing the cheapest option. Your GP is a good place to start, as they know your treatment needs and referred many patients to rehab previously.
There are many rehab centres in Newport and across South Wales, but it’s important to choose one that is accredited and licensed. The best rehabilitation programmes are managed by qualified professionals who have experience in treating addictions. In the UK, rehab centres must be registered with the Care Quality Commission.
Aftercare is an important part of treatment. It is easier maintaining abstinence whilst in treatment, because of the constant supervision it affords. When you’re discharged, you’ll be faced with certain triggers. Aftercare helps you maintain abstinence via support groups, pharmacology and counselling.
Treatment should be customised to fit your unique treatment needs, as every patient exhibits different symptoms. Your treatment plan should be based on your input, mental evaluation and a comprehensive physical assessment.
