Private Alcohol Rehabilitation

To get sober or clean, many individuals find themselves exploring the options of private inpatient drug and alcohol treatments. Also known as private residential treatment, this form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation offers intensive and comprehensive services to people struggling with substance use disorders.

What is private residential rehab treatment? How does private rehab differ from state or health service treatment? How does it work, what does it entail, and how can it help those seeking to stop drinking alcohol or using drugs?

Unfortunately, in the UK, there are no NHS rehab clinics. In fact, treatment on the NHS is usually just medical detox and medical abstinence programs, and finding any type of rehabilitation in the form of therapy, counselling, relapse prevention or ongoing support from a psychological approach is almost impossible to obtain. And, there are waiting lists.

So, many people who have the means opt for private alcohol rehab or private drug rehab.

What Is Private Drug And Alcohol Treatment?

Private inpatient or residential treatment represents the highest tier of rehab services, catering to individuals diagnosed with alcohol addiction and other substance use disorders. This form of treatment often incorporates medical detox and integrated mental health services into its comprehensive programs.

Inpatient treatment starts with an in-depth understanding of the patient’s specific situation. The admissions team, often the therapeutic and medical treatment team evaluates the patient’s medical health, mental health and substance use history to formulate an individualised rehab plan. The treatment team can usually liaise with the patient’s family members and other professionals upon the patient’s consent to address any associated challenges. However, the very nature of confidentiality and privacy means that many clients simply go to treatment with no one else knowing their business.

As well as an admissions team assessing the client’s requirements, often a multidisciplinary team of clinicians is brought together to create a holistic healing plan as addiction impacts the body, mind and spirit of people. This team usually consists of:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Family therapists
  • Licensed addiction counsellors
  • Nutritionists
  • Wellness and fitness specialists

The Role Of Detox In Inpatient Rehab

Alcohol detox, or detoxification, is the first step in helping your body and brain recover from substance abuse. This process involves flushing out the accumulated chemicals in your body due to prolonged substance use. Given that detox can be uncomfortable, and in some cases, dangerous, the right medical care is crucial to ease discomfort and/or drug cravings.

During detox, patients are medically monitored 24/7 until they are stable enough to focus on rehab programming and activities.

What Happens During Addiction Rehabilitation?

Following alcohol or drug detox, clients transition to residential therapy or rehab section to participate in rehab services and activities. Inpatient drug rehab activities may include:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual substance use assessments and therapy
  • Integrated co-occurring mental health services
  • Individual mental health assessments and therapy
  • Medical appointments
  • Wellness and holistic treatments
  • Family program participation
  • Nutritional assessment
  • Spiritual care
  • Educational and experiential workshops
  • Continuing care planning

Inpatient addiction treatment focuses on stabilizing and assessing your health to ensure you are ready – physically, psychologically and emotionally – to learn about core recovery concepts and start practising recovery principles in your daily life.

Do I Need To Go To Rehab?

Determining the need for inpatient rehab for substance misuse involves considering several factors. Some questions to ask include:

  1. Am I at high risk of experiencing drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms?
  2. Have I had a relapse (a return to drinking/drug use) after getting sober?
  3. Have I already tried a less intensive level of drug or alcohol treatment?
  4. Is my life unmanageable due to dependence or addiction?

Generally, individuals who answer “yes” to at least one of these questions may benefit most from residential addiction treatment.

We offer a free consultation and assessment at Moorpark, and we have many options for treatment including outpatient, so please get in touch.

How Long Do I Stay In Private Rehab

The length of stay in inpatient alcohol or drug rehab varies based on specific clinical milestones. The clinical team collaborates with the clients and their families to formulate the most suitable care plan and timetable.

The usual stay in rehab is 28 days. This is generally enough time to have clients away from their substance of choice and also to provide a level of care, therapy and sober or clean time to build a foundation of change.

For clients who are more severe in their addictions and perhaps have decades of alcohol or drug misuse, stays of 2, 3 or 6 months are not uncommon for people to get the tools they need to live life independently and safely, free from drugs or alcohol.

What Is The Cost of Private Rehab

The cost of inpatient rehab programs depends on the selected treatment centre, the level of clinical care recommended, and the length of time in treatment. Some patients may have health insurance benefits to help cover treatment costs. However, insurance policies and benefits vary greatly, so it’s essential to check with your provider about coverage specifics. At Moorpark, we take insurance as well as privately funded clients. Some clients pay for themselves, whilst others are helped by family members. Regardless of how clients find funding, we believe Moorpark offers the best value-for-money rehab treatment in the UK. We know our treatments and therapies are unrivalled in any other rehab in Scotland, and that our country rehab setting and lower costs compared to those in England, make us the best rehab in the UK for private addiction treatment.

Treatment starts at around £2000, so please get in touch to find out more.

What Is The Admissions Process for Inpatient Rehab

The first step to start the admissions process for inpatient rehab is to call an Admissions Team for a confidential phone assessment. A recovery expert will determine whether drug or alcohol treatment is needed. If treatment is recommended, they will discuss the most appropriate level of care and agree your admission date and any other factors such as travel to the rehab clinic.

Drug & Alcohol Detox: Your First Step In Recovery

Before beginning the rehabilitation process, the first step is to detox from alcohol or drugs. This involves eliminating all traces of the substance from your body. While some people can detox independently, it’s significantly more challenging and potentially hazardous for others. Hence, undergoing drug or alcohol detox in a rehab facility is critical for your safety and peace of mind.

During detox, rehab professionals examine your condition and determine the best course of action, which often includes medications to replace the drug of choice and clear your body of substances. You will be under 24/7 care, the safe and comfortable process of detox.

You can contact us to out more about alcohol detox and withdrawal symptoms management, and we have made an alcohol detox timeline to help understand the process.

More information on our drug detox process can be found here.

Therapy: The Point Of Rehab

Once you’ve cleansed your system of alcohol and have overcome the worst of your withdrawal symptoms, you can begin the actual rehab process. In rehab, you usually have two options: inpatient or outpatient treatment.

Inpatient treatment involves residing at a rehabilitation facility for a certain duration, which means you eat, sleep and live there. This form of treatment is considered superior since it immerses you completely in a positive environment for recovery. However, it’s more expensive than outpatient treatment as you pay for room and board and food, and you are away from home during the stay, which doesn’t suit everyone due to other commitments such as kids or pets.

The most significant aspect of rehab is therapy. For many people with an addiction, their problem is often caused by unaddressed traumas. A therapist can help you navigate these traumas, decrease your need to drink or use, teach you healthier ways to cope with triggers and set you free from thinking that brought about your addiction.

Holistic vs Traditional Treatments

Most rehab clinics adopt a holistic approach to treatment focusing on treating the individual as a whole, not just their addiction. This approach involves spending time in detox, therapy, exercising, massage, yoga and finding new hobbies and learning about self-care such as nutrition and good sleep patterns.

Can I Get Free Private Addiction Rehab?

There are some charities rehab clinics around that offer free rehab. Often they aren’t free per see – sometimes they’ll ask for a donation or welfare money. However, they are a great option if money is tight. Naturally, they don’t have the same facilities and level of care that private rehabs do but they do work. If inpatient rehab treatment isn’t feasible for you, outpatient treatment can also be a great option. This form of treatment allows you to get the necessary treatment while still attending to your daily responsibilities without living full-time at the treatment centre. Outpatient rehab is more affordable, making it a viable choice for those short on funds. Contact us to discuss all the options available.

Aftercare for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

Transitioning back to the real world after successfully going through rehab is challenging. Aftercare is designed to help with this transition. Aftercare involves services similar to those in rehabilitation, except on a smaller, less intensive scale. Sometimes it’s done by attending a group therapy meeting once a week in person or online. Different rehabs offer different levels and types of self-care.

Support Groups as a Pillar of Recovery

Support groups can be an invaluable tool in the journey towards sobriety. In fact, we actively promote them here at Moorpark. Coupling a support group with individual therapy significantly increases the likelihood of success. We encourage all clients to attend mutual support groups when they leave Moorpark to help them stay sober and for personal growth.
