How to Find the Best Alcohol Rehab Programme

Content Overview

Finding the right alcohol rehab programme is important in terms of ensuring that all your needs are met and that you have the best chance of long-term success. There is much to consider such as the pros and cons of inpatient and outpatient treatment programmes and which provider can provide the level of care that you need to fully overcome your alcohol addiction.

When someone suffering in the throes of addiction finally reaches that point of being willing to get professional help, the immediate question of where to go presents itself. The good and bad in this regard is that there are so many options. This is good in that there is a rehab facility and treatment programme well-suited to just about every need and preference. The bad news is that it can be difficult and frustrating to search through all the different options in the hope of finally arriving at the best choice.

We can help you understand how to find the best rehab.

Top-Rated Treatment Centres

There is a difference between choosing a rehab facility and choosing the best one for your needs. Our goal is to find the top-rated treatment centres for you. But doing so is not a quick process. We’ll speak with you at length to fully understand what it is you are going through.

Inpatient alcohol treatment is one of the best options for you if you want to recover in a short amount of time. Inpatient treatment is intensive, structured, and the most time-consuming approach to recovery available to you. Programmes are condensed over a few weeks, and you will be expected to move from your home to the clinic for the duration of the treatment programme.

What you should be aware of is that most inpatient programmes take place within private clinics. You should also know that these clinics provide a high standard care and clinical excellence in line with the Care Quality Commissions regulations.

If inpatient alcohol treatment is of interest to you and something that you believe you will benefit from, UKAT can help you find the rehab centre that is most suited to your needs.

Types of Alcohol Abuse Treatment

Alcohol abuse treatment takes many forms and will usually be determined by your own set of circumstances and individual requirements. When you enter a residential programme, you will likely be provided with a personalised treatment plan that includes elements of individual counselling, group therapy, and holistic therapies.

Behavioural therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) are commonly used to treat alcohol abuse and addiction and so your programme should also include things like meditation, mindful fitness, and music therapy. All these help to improve your overall wellbeing.

What Type of Centre Should I Consider?

When it comes to choosing the right rehab centre, there are certain factors to take into consideration. It can be an overwhelming task, particularly when you are not fully aware of what your requirements are. UKAT can help you in this regard.

UKAT exists to serve addicts and their families looking to find professional help. We cannot simply tell clients to go to clinic XYZ after just one or two minutes on the phone, but we can offer comprehensive assessments followed by walking clients through all the options open to them, advising them as to which clinic or treatment programme we believe to be the best.

Impact of an Alcoholic Parent on Families

When choosing between a residential treatment centre and outpatient services, your needs and preferences should be the paramount consideration. There are many differences between the two in terms of how they are run and how intensive each is. By far the biggest difference though is in how quickly you can access the programme.

One of the downsides to outpatient NHS treatment is that programmes tend to be oversubscribed. Waiting lists are relatively common. On the other hand, waiting times for private rehab tend to be substantially shorter or non-existent altogether. A waiting period may be critical for you, so make sure you ask about it. If you are ready to start treatment within 24 to 48 hours, it makes no sense to work on admission to a clinic that cannot get you in for another week.

Along those same lines, we encourage you to consider scientific data that shows the importance of being admitted to a rehab clinic as quickly as possible following the decision to get help. Those who seek immediate admission are less likely to change their minds than those who delay. It is best to avoid clinics with waiting times if you can.

Medically Supported Rehab

A medically supported rehab programme is a wise choice when it comes to alcohol recovery. Private clinics typically have a number of medical staff in their employ to ensure the health and wellbeing of all patients. This will include doctors, nurses, and psychologists, who will provide excellent clinical care during the processes of detox and rehabilitation.

FAQ

How much does alcohol rehab cost?

The question of cost is always a factor when searching for the best private rehab clinic. Some of the most budget-friendly clinics are very affordable for most budgets. Of course, there are also luxury rehab clinics on the other end of the spectrum along with plenty of moderate level options in between. Choosing a clinic which doesn't stretch your budget is helpful when you want to find the best rehab for your needs.

In terms of payment, most private health insurance plans cover drug and alcohol treatment to some extent. The question is whether your chosen clinic accepts health insurance. Clinics are known to also accept debit and credit cards as well as cash payments. Do not be afraid to ask about any other payment methods you might be interested in.

What's the withdrawal process like?

Withdrawal from alcohol is different for everyone. How long you have been using alcohol, how heavily you use it, and how often will all play a role in how your detox progresses. It is highly likely that you will experience some withdrawal symptoms, but it is impossible to predict which ones and how severe these will be in advance.

What we can guarantee is that when you detox in one of our clinics, you will be completely safe and comfortable throughout.

Are there alcohol rehabs for teens?

It is difficult to imagine that teenagers might need rehab programmes, but it does happen. It is important that any alcohol problem is tackled as soon as possible regardless of age. If you are interested in alcohol rehab for a teenager relative or friend, speak to us here at UKAT and we will provide information on the options available.

Does alcohol abuse treatment work?

Treatment for alcohol abuse and addiction can be very effective provided you are committed to working with counsellors and therapists and that the programme has been designed with your specific requirements in mind.

If you are prepared to make major lifestyle changes and have a real desire to succeed, there is no reason why alcohol abuse treatment will not work for you.

How long does inpatient alcohol rehabilitation take?

It is important for you to know how long treatment programmes at various facilities last. This is essential information on many levels, beginning with the fact that you might need to make plans based on the length of stay. You might have to take time off from work, for example.

The length of treatment is also important inasmuch as data shows that duration of stay is related to the success of rehab. The longer a person participates in rehab, the greater his or her chances of maintaining abstinence once treatment is complete. It is difficult to predict exactly how long your treatment programme will last, but inpatient programmes usually run for between four and twelve weeks. If you are responding well to treatment and do not have complex needs, a 4-week stay might be sufficient. Nevertheless, if you have been struggling with more than one addiction or also have a mental health illness, your stay may be longer.

Do I need to take medication?

Whether medication is administered or not during your detox or rehab programme will be determined by your needs and by the doctor in attendance. It might be the case that your addiction is severe meaning that there is a strong possibility of you experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. In this case, one of our doctors might prescribe a sedative replacement drug to reduce the risk of symptoms.

How to find the right treatment centre for you?

Finding the right treatment centre can be tough when you don't know what your needs are or if you have no idea what to look for in a rehab centre. The good news is that you can get help from many different sources.

You can speak to your GP for information on the programmes offered by the NHS or local charities, or you can contact us for information about our programmes and how they might benefit you. Having an assessment of your situation will give you a clearer understanding of what you are dealing with and the type of treatment centre that is best for you and your requirements.

What to look for in an alcohol rehab?

There are a number of things that you should be looking for in a good alcohol rehab provider. A good client-to-staff ratio is necessary to maximise personalised care. Your search for the best rehab facility should include only those facilities that are both licenced and accredited. Licencing indicates that a rehab centre is in compliance with all government regulations covering everything from the quality of care to business operations. Accreditation signifies that a rehab centre meets or exceeds a certain set of standards set by recognised accrediting organisations.

Together with licenced and accredited facilities are staff members who are also licenced and certified. Obviously, doctors, nurses, and therapists will have to be licenced in order to work at a private rehab clinic. It is also important that they are certified in the kinds of treatments they will be offering. Support staff may also need certification in certain areas.
