Drug and Alcohol Rehab Oxford | Step 1 Recovery Centre

Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Oxford

While you may be searching specifically for drug and alcohol rehab in Oxford, the popularity of rehab clinics abroad is steadily growing, and thousands of Brits head to Spain each year to undertake treatment in the sunshine. Of course, going overseas isn’t for everyone, which is why Step 1 Recovery offer both home and overseas options. You can choose to stay in our luxurious Mediterranean Villa Camino de la Paz in Moraira, just a short transfer from Alicante airport, or opt for our homely rehab centre in a leafy suburb of Watford, just over an hour’s drive from Oxford, we also have other centres in the UK if neither are suitable. Whichever you choose, you can be sure of world-class care and addiction treatment that’s second to none.

 

Taking time for rehab

It’s quite common for those who contact us about rehab to have tried some form of treatment in the past. They may have done a home detox, gone to an outpatient clinic, or even attended various drug rehabs in the past. What sets Step 1 Recovery apart is that we focus on all aspects of your addiction, finding out its roots and causes in therapy, teaching you ways to overcome cravings and avoid relapse, and working on both your mental and physical health. If you follow our programme and aftercare, your chances of success are much higher than trying to overcome your addiction on your own.

While 28 days of rehab may seem like a long time, it’s only one month out of your life, and we feel you’ll really get the most out of it if you complete the whole programme. Many people with a drug or alcohol addiction neglect self-care and are often malnourished and feeling weak when they come to us. We spend time focusing on your health, providing nutritious food and fitness and yoga sessions so you can begin to heal.

Rehab should never feel like a punishment. Your recovery is a reward, and we want to ensure that you get as much as possible out of your stay. If you choose to stay with us in Spain, you can soak up the sunshine and enjoy a dip in the pool. Our Watford, UK location has lovely grounds and is surrounded by parks, ensuring you get fresh air and have peace and quiet while you heal.

 

Choosing the right rehab centre

Whether you’re overcoming drugs, alcohol or another addiction, the right treatment centre can make the difference between wanting to complete the programme and counting down the days until you leave. Step 1 Recovery offer the highest levels of quality in our centres, whether you choose the UK or Spain, and you can be sure of comfortable, private rooms, excellent food and peaceful locations, no matter which place you choose.

You may be looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Oxford because you’d like to stay close to home. We certainly understand that not everyone wants to fly to Spain for treatment. Some people have children and family commitments in the UK, or perhaps just feel extremely anxious about the thought of being far away. We would never recommend rehab in Spain to someone who wouldn’t benefit from it.

There can be many reasons why people choose to go abroad to treat their substance abuse problems. In many cases, it’s to escape negative influences. They may have friends who drink or use drugs around them, or they may find it too easy to get hold of drugs when they’re at home, which means the temptation can be overwhelming. In many cases of addiction, there can be relationship issues with partners or family, and the time away from home can create emotional space so you can start to identify negative behavioural patterns.

If you’re selecting a clinic for a loved one, then it’s worth considering how motivated they are to succeed. Rehab works best when entered willingly, and if the addict feels forced to go, then treatment won’t work no matter how nice the location. However, we can help with an intervention if you want to try and encourage a loved one to seek help, which can often help them see that they need to quit.

 

Rehab in Spain versus the UK

We are often asked which is better, rehab in Spain or rehab in the UK? The short answer is that they’re both great programmes, and if you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Oxford, then you should weigh up the pros and cons of both. When you’re in rehab in Spain, it doesn’t feel like being in a strange place. All our staff speak fluent English and are respectful of cultural differences, so you don’t have to feel like you’re in a strange place.

Many Brits choose rehab in Spain because it can be less expensive, but still offers a high level of service. As the NHS becomes more stretched, medical tourism has become more and more popular, and that includes those seeking addiction treatment. Although you have to factor in the cost of your flights, everything else such as transfers are included at Step 1 Recovery, so it can work out cheaper than the UK equivalent.
