Private Rehabilitation

Regardless of the severity and duration of your addiction, or that afflicting a loved one, the best course of action may well be private rehabilitation, which has literally made the difference between life and death in countless cases around the world. Private rehab is often the most immediate and most successful treatment option – especially in serious cases of addiction where there is a genuine risk of harm to the addict and/or those around them.

All UKAT rehabs also offer support and help through our facilitated family groups. These groups enable those close to the sufferer an opportunity to talk about the impact that alcoholism has had on their lives and to look at how they can improve their emotional wellbeing. Family support groups take place on a weekly basis at each of our centres and anyone who has a close connection to the addict in our treatment programme can attend. You can find out more information regarding days and times on our family support page.

Private rehab will provide:

  • Immediate admission 365 days a year
  • Medical detox with 24/7 care & support
  • Overcome the root causes of addiction
  • Experienced team of doctors & therapists
  • Personalised rehabilitation programme
  • Look, feel, sleep better & regain confidence
  • Learn techniques for relapse prevention
  • Fitness and nutrition programme
  • 1 year complimentary aftercare support

Sober Transport Service

Making the journey from home to clinic can feel overwhelming, a sober transport service works to ensure you or your loved one are taken from door to door safely and securely while supporting you along the way and affording the opportunity discuss any concerns you may have in a professional and understanding way.

What Does Rehab Cost?

The cost of rehab can vary depending on the area and the type of treatment you require.

However, it is usually priced at around £1,500 – £3,000 per week. If you are thinking about attending a private rehab facility near Greater London and would like to find out specific costings, get in touch and we will be able to provide you with this information to aid you in making a decision.

NHS Addiction Treatment Options near Greater London

Bear in mind that private rehab isn’t an option for everyone: it can be an expensive process and can have a huge impact on work and other commitments. Luckily, there are a number of free NHS services near Buckinghamshire for people who wish to attempt getting clean without opting for private rehab.

Pros and Cons of NHS Treatment

As with private treatment, NHS services also come with a list of positives and negatives:

  • The services are free of charge;
  • All information is confidential;
  • Services are located in the local community, close to home and family.

However, there are a number of reasons why NHS treatment might not be the best option:

  • Lengthy admissions process;
  • Might not be referred to residential rehab;
  • Patients may be asked to go to different clinics
  • Recovery may be affected by life distractions
  • Access to the personal therapist is more limited;
