Alcohol Help is a referral organisation specialising in matching up addicts with rehab centres and programs that can help them learn to live addiction free. As such, we are often asked whether a private alcohol rehab centre has any benefits over services offered by the NHS and public charities.
Simply put, they do. Most importantly, private rehab centres enjoy a much higher success rate than public services because of their mission, structure, and access to resources. If you need help for yourself or someone else, we strongly urge you to contact Alcohol Help so we can help arrange appropriate treatment. Even if you think you cannot afford it, call us anyway. We still might be able to help.
A Single Focus
The primary advantage our private alcohol rehab centres have over NHS services is their single, laser-like focus. In other words, the NHS exists to handle all sorts of serious and not-so-serious health conditions. A private alcohol rehab centre exists for one reason and one reason only: to provide the treatment necessary to break the addiction cycle.
That single focus enables the private clinic to dedicate all of their resources and attention to addiction recovery. Without the distraction of other sorts of medical conditions, the trained staff can concentrate solely on the addicts. That’s a great benefit.
The average private rehab clinic is staffed by fully trained and professional:
- medical personnel
- support staff.
Another advantage of the private rehab centre is the flexibility it offers. The centres we work with know all too well that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all rehab program. While it’s true that our clinics do work within a given set of parameters, they are able to make flexible changes to accommodate the individual alcoholic and his or her circumstances. The NHS and some charities cannot do that.
Addiction Help takes the flexibility idea one step further by offering our clients a wide range of services and facilities to choose from. That means even greater flexibility in finding the right program for you. It is what we do best.
Residential Program Basics
Hopefully we’ve convinced you that a residential program offered by a private alcohol rehab centre is a better option than public services. If so, you can expect a typical program to offer some or all of the following:
- one-on-one and group counselling
- supervised group activities
- family counselling
- maintenance medications
- aftercare programs.
If that seems like a lot to offer, consider the fact that most private rehab centres are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure clients remain alcohol free for the rest of their lives. If that means going to great lengths to be extra thorough, so be it.
