It’s not difficult to recognise the damages that addiction causes to an individual, their family and the community as a whole. Most people don’t set out to become addicts. For instance, those who are addicted to prescription pills will have had had a legitimate medical use for drugs initially. Meanwhile, individuals who abused ‘legal highs’ and other illicit drugs probably did so to escape certain emotions or even an illness. Addiction is a progressive disease, which requires professional help in order to get better.
When you attend rehab, you’ll be surrounded by patients who have the same recovery goals as you. The support you receive from peers motivates you to get better and maintain abstinence from drugs. Going to rehab could save relationships with loved ones – perhaps even your marriage. Family therapy is a component of most addiction treatment and helps the family heal as a unit. Get started by calling our addiction helpline, where one of our drug counsellors will guide you through the next steps, using evidence-based guidelines.
Primrose Lodge is a UKAT facility in Surrey that offers specialised treatment to individuals who need help quitting drug and alcohol abuse.

Because they are self-funded, private rehab centres are able to employ some of the best addiction nurses, drug counsellors, recovery workers, psychotherapists and doctors, who all work towards a single goal of helping you recover from addiction. Your privacy and confidentiality are also protected at a private rehab centre. You’ll receive treatment without having to worry about the social stigma attached to recovering addicts.
The risk of relapsing during treatment is a non-issue at a private rehab facility, as it comprises a highly disciplined programme, where you’ll have no access to drugs or triggers that might cause you to relapse. You’ll be living in a therapeutic community, where you can access 24/7 support from care professionals and other patients. Staying at an inpatient facility for two to three months improves the chances of a positive treatment outcome and sustaining long-term recovery.
Cost of treatment
Whatever your budget, there is a rehab centre that caters to your addiction treatment needs. Facilities in cities like Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester and London charge more than those in rural areas. If you attend a luxury rehab programme that offers extra amenities and five-star facilities, you will also pay more. The first option to consider is paying for rehab via your medical insurance. If you don’t have insurance, you can choose one of the free options listed in this post; apply for government funding via the NHS; or seek financial support from loved ones.
Standard residential programmes cost between £5,000 and £7,000 per month, while luxury programmes cost between £50,000 and £75,000 per month.

A few tips to help you choose the right rehab centre include:
Licensing and certification: Focus your search on UK rehab centres that are registered with the Care Quality Commission. This shows that they are certified to provide addiction care.
Customised treatment plan: A fundamental aspect of drug/alcohol rehab is the provision of a tailored treatment plan for each patient. Primrose Lodge uses your input, medical exam results and psychological evaluation from a licensed therapist to create your detox and rehab treatment plan.
Cost of treatment: While many patients complain that private rehab is expensive, they should realise that such rehab centres are self-funded and would be unable to provide excellent care if they couldn’t attract the best staff or offer comfortable lodgings for patients. Don’t be in a haste to enrol with the cheapest rehab centre. Rather, look into their reviews and ratings and compare prices to find the most affordable option.
A number of therapies applied in treatment: Depending on the severity of your addiction, you might require multiple therapies to effectively treat addiction or mental health issues. We also include alternative therapies like yoga, meditation, fitness therapy, art/music therapy and nutrition therapy to complement traditional techniques.
