Choosing the right rehab for you is essential to getting on the road to recovery to overcome your addiction.
There are a wide number of treatments available for addiction to choose from, including residential rehab and outpatient rehab and different types of recovery programmes.
Work Out What Your Individual Needs for Recovery Are
Every rehab offers and specialises in different treatments and services designed to meet different recovery needs and circumstances.
That’s why the first step to choosing the right rehab for you is working out what substances or behaviours you are looking to recover from and whether you have any additional issues that must be addressed such as a co-occuring disorder or secondary addiction.
Here are some of the things you should consider in order to choose the right rehab for you:
What are You Addicted To?
What type of addiction are you struggling with? The most common types of addiction include:
- Alcohol addiction
- Gambling addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Painkillers addiction
- Cannabis addiction
- Heroin addiction
Some rehabs specialise in individual types of addictions whilst others deal with a wide range of different types, so it’s important to choose a rehab centre that can provide you with the right kind of help for your individual needs.
If you have an addiction to two different things such as an alcohol and gambling addiction, you will need to choose a rehab that tackles both types of addiction in order to undergo a more successful treatment.
Do You Require a Detox?
Some addictions such as alcohol and drug addictions first require a detox before the programme can begin. Many rehab centres include this as part of their package and can help you to safely remove substances from your system whilst managing the withdrawal symptoms to make it as comfortable as possible.
If you have a substance abuse that will require detoxification, you will need to make sure that the rehab you choose offers this as part of their services and that they can provide the right kind of medication assisted treatment to ease the withdrawal symptoms.
At Acquiesce we undertake a full assessment of each individual’s circumstances and needs. Once this has been ascertained we will assist by arranging your detoxification placement.
We arrange all aspects of the detox including transportation. This ensures a hassle free process, providing a seamless and fluid treatment journey.
If you have daily responsibilities such as childcare in the mornings, evenings and at the weekend, you may be concerned that you cannot attend rehabilitation due to your inability to give up your responsibilities and stay in accommodation.
However, you can still get help with a type of rehabilitation called outpatient rehab, which operates during the day to provide all of the essential addiction treatment without the need to stay overnight or at weekends.
So, if flexibility is something you require, outpatient rehab will likely be the best choice for you.
The Location of Your Rehab
The location of the rehab facility you choose is incredibly important. For some individuals, having a rehab close by and quick to get to will be a high priority, whilst for others, the idea of travelling further away for residential rehab will be more appealing.
There are a number of benefits to both. For example, attending a local rehab centre allows you to integrate addiction recovery into your local community with urban recovery, whilst travelling further away for rehab offers greater privacy and a healthy break from your usual surroundings.
At Acquiesce, we offer private, residential rehabilitation at our treatment centre in Bolton to individuals from both near and far.
One of the biggest factors to consider when choosing a rehab centre is your budget. The cost of rehabilitation can vary significantly depending on a number of factors such as the location, duration of the programme and whether you require accommodation for inpatient accommodation.
If you have a slightly lower budget and a less severe addiction, outpatient rehab may be a better option for you as this is significantly less expensive and is more flexible for those who don’t require full-time support.
However, if you have a more severe addiction and require intense, round-the-clock support, it is definitely worth spending the extra money for inpatient rehabilitation.
At Acquiesce, we charge £5,500 for a 28 day residential placement including a 7 day medical detox if required.
Questions to Ask When Choosing a Rehabilitation Facility
Do You Offer Family Support?
The consequences of addiction can have a widespread and rippling effect. It often has the greatest impact on those closest to the individual in addiction and the effects of addiction on families and significant others can be devastating.
If family support is an important factor for your addiction recovery, it is important to make sure the rehabilitation centre you’re considering offers family support as part of their package.
As part of our programme at Acquiesce, we offer a range of family support that includes family psychoeducation and calls with updates to loved ones.
What Does Your Treatment Programme Involve?
When choosing a rehab centre, it is important to ask about what their programme involves and how it will help you on your journey to recovery.
At Acquiesce, our programme focuses on the following aspects relating to addiction:
We use a combination package that includes the 12 steps and cognitive behavioural therapy based approaches which complement each other excellently, targeting the root of the addiction and helping an individual to discover a recovery focused code of behaviour in which to live by.
What is the Duration of the Programme?
The time it takes to overcome addiction can be different for everyone. Some individuals may require just 28 days of treatment in order to get on the road to recovery, whilst others may take 3 months.
That’s why it’s important to ask about the duration options of the recovery programme before choosing a rehab as some may only offer longer packages.
At Acquiesce, we recognise that individuals and their addictions differ greatly, which is why we offer different lengths of treatment programmes depending on a person’s specific needs. We offer programmes that last:
- 28 Days
- 56 Days
- 84 Days
