In many areas, the NHS has long waiting lists for addiction treatments, which is why increasing numbers of people are seeking out private drug and alcohol rehab. Instead of waiting for a GP referral or for a specialist to see you, you can come directly to Step 1 Recovery and start your rehab programme in a matter of hours, rather than weeks. Although we aren’t an NHS facility, you can be certain that all our staff are highly qualified and experienced, and we offer many extras that simply aren’t available through the NHS.
Each case of addiction is unique, and everyone who comes to us has their own history and personal circumstances that have led them to this point. This means that the best chance of long-term recovery is a rehab programme that’s tailored to suit your needs, with a combination of individual, group and family therapy that’s combined with holistic treatments. Unfortunately, this kind of world-class treatment simply isn’t available on the NHS, and most of the treatment they offer will follow certain pathways. That’s why it’s worth considering private drug and alcohol rehab. You get effective treatment the first-time round, rather than having to waste time trying programmes that don’t work.
While the NHS is often great when it comes to emergency situations, trying to get treatment for long-term conditions such as an eating disorder or drug addiction can take months. And once you get to the top of the waiting list, it may not even be residential treatment you’re offered, it can often be outpatient care which can be unsuitable for many conditions. Step 1 Recovery offers admission within 48 hours and can often sort out a place very quickly in difficult situations.
Many people with addictions are in denial about their condition, so if their family members finally agree to get them to go to treatment, the last thing they need is a long delay. During this time they might talk themselves out of going to rehab, or their addiction may become more severe, which could lead to all sorts of problems. If you choose private drug and alcohol rehab, you can get them straight on a plane to our Spanish villa, or we can arrange for transport to our residential rehab centres in the UK, so there’s no time for them to overthink things.
Drug and alcohol rehab has long been associated with the rich and famous, and there are options that make it accessible to everyone. Step 1 Recovery offer a range of packages, all of which include all extras such as meals and transfers, as well as a year of free aftercare, which make them excellent value for money.
Step 1 Recovery’s programme is comprehensive, and in addition to traditional detox and rehab treatments, it includes holistic therapies and workshops, so you get the most for your money. You also get 24-hour support at our centres in the UK and Spain. There are no hidden costs, and we can often work out a structured payment plan if this is easier for you.
While the quote for private drug and alcohol rehab may seem high at first, it’s worth considering the potential cost of continuing your addiction versus getting the right help. Having a drug or alcohol addiction can be expensive, not only if you count the cost of buying these substances, but also the potential loss of career, legal troubles and other damage that an addiction can cause.
A big advantage of private drug and alcohol rehab is that it takes place in beautiful surroundings. When you are going through a detox programme, you don’t want to feel that you’re in a hospital or clinic, you want to feel at home. Step 1 Recovery offer luxury centres for private drug and alcohol treatment in the UK and Spain, with private rooms, comfortable communal areas and great facilities. Our villa in Spain has a swimming pool and amazing Mediterranean views, while most of our centres in the UK are surrounded by parkland and large grounds, making it feel a world away from NHS hospitals and clinics. Drug and alcohol detox can be tough on you both mentally and physically but going through treatment with us is like a reward and a pleasant break.
There are many reasons why you might be going private when you need drug or alcohol addiction, from giving you more treatment options to creating a more pleasant place to heal. Step 1 Recovery work with a number of addictions, as well as eating disorders and mental health issues, and often deal with those who have a dual diagnosis and need additional support.
