What Rehabs In Wales Do

Rehabs provide a crucial service to those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. Many of these facilities provide residential rehab treatment that includes detoxification.

The rehabilitation process is a crucial part of overcoming any addiction. It involves a comprehensive approach that addresses the physical, emotional, social and psychological aspects of substance abuse.

Our drug and alcohol rehab centres in Wales offer inpatient services and outpatient treatment. Treatment approaches often vary from clinic to clinic, so it is important to find one that aligns with your beliefs and that you trust. 

Whatever your treatment needs, location and budget are, we offer tailored treatment plans delivered by qualified professionals.

All of our in-patient treatment centres are CQC-registered and heavily regulated. This provides you with peace of mind that the people helping you are adhering to strict guidelines and safety procedures.

Some rehabs in Wales will accept NHS referrals and Health Insurance. Call us to find out more.

Types of Drug and Alcohol Rehab In North & South Wales

When looking for a drug and alcohol rehab in Wales, there are several options to consider. Residential rehab is considered to be, by far, the most effective option in treating addiction and mental health illness. However, it does tend to be the most costly. Additionally, you may find it hard to commit to a full-time programme due to family or work commitments.

Here, we look at the different types of rehab available and what they have to offer.

Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehab:

Residential rehab provides inpatient treatment for those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and their mental health. Everything is included in their fee: medications, treatment, food and accommodation. The cost of residential rehab in Wales varies tremendously from place to place. It can be anything from a few hundred pounds a day to a few thousand pounds per day. 

Inpatient clinics are able to offer comprehensive treatment for any addiction type. They are also equipped to treat the mental health illnesses that commonly occur alongside addiction, such as anxiety, depression, burnout and PTSD.

Residential treatment provides a haven for those seeking to get well. They provide the foundations for long-term sobriety and recovery from drug addiction.  With 24/7 care delivered by a professional addiction team, you will be in very safe hands. 

Treatment programmes often include drug and alcohol detox, cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling, group therapy, psychotherapy, family therapy sessions and holistic therapy. You will also be provided with a detailed aftercare plan to help you transition back home.

Residential Alcohol and Drug Rehabs In Wales Treat All Types of Addiction, including:

These rehabs offer comprehensive medical care during detoxes for alcohol and drugs, including cocaine detox and heroin detox. They also offer short-term and long-term programs.

Quasi Residential Alcohol and Drug Rehab:

Drug and alcohol rehabs in Wales that offer Quasi residential treatment are often the more affordable rehab options. They offer all of the benefits of residential rehab in terms of intensity and structure. The main difference is that your accommodation will not be at the actual clinic. Instead, you will be housed nearby.

These treatment centres also tend to accommodate larger numbers of patients at any one time. This may not suit you if you are someone who would prefer to be within a quiet environment with a high counsellor-to-patient ratio whilst undergoing addiction therapy. Nevertheless, these rehabs prove highly effective for many and encourage a real sense of community spirit amongst patients.

Quasi-residential rehabs also offer comprehensive medical care during detoxes for drugs and alcohol, including dependence on prescription medications. They also offer short-term and long-term programs.

Some quasi-residential rehabs will offer family therapy sessions to help mend broken family bonds. It is always best to check with us in advance if this is something you want to implement in your treatment.

Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Wales:

Outpatient rehab programs allow you to receive treatment while still living at home. This option provides flexibility for those who cannot commit to an inpatient program. However, this option is not suitable if your environment is a trigger for drug and alcohol use. You will also need to be fully detoxed before attending such a rehab. Medical drug and alcohol detoxes require around-the-clock supervision, which is why they are only usually conducted on an inpatient basis at a rehab or hospital.

Community Drug Rehab & Therapeutic Community:

Rehab conducted in the community is usually led by NHS-run addiction services. Whilst it is not comprehensive or intensive, it will allow you to attend appointments and groups such as SMART Recovery to help address your drug and alcohol use.

Some people who are trying to get sober or off drugs prefer not to engage with these free services. Community rehab is high-risk for a person who is easily triggered by others being under the influence or who is not at a point where they are able to engage fully.

Tertiary care, also known as therapeutic communities, is owned by private rehabs. They offer sober living accommodation for those who have completed a primary care treatment programme and are fully detoxed from drugs and alcohol. Whilst they are owned privately, they will often take NHS referrals and referrals from people who have completed a treatment programme elsewhere. 

Those staying in a therapeutic community will be offered support by housing services, job centres and the local mental health team. Addiction counselling sessions can also be continued as part of private rehab aftercare. 

Guests are also encouraged to regularly attend recovery groups such as Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. Randomised drug and alcohol testing is regularly carried out by rehab staff to ensure the community remains safe.

Rehab Dual Diagnosis

One of the great benefits of attending a drug and alcohol residential rehab in Wales is that you will be able to access proper medical care for dual diagnosis.

Dual diagnosis is a term used to describe those who suffer from addiction and a mental health disorder. In the community, the NHS treats the two conditions separately. They simply do not have the facilities to treat them simultaneously. Even though this is considered the best course of treatment.

When arriving at a treatment centre, you will receive a comprehensive medical and mental health assessment by a psychiatrist or qualified doctor knowledgeable about addiction. They will prescribe a detox regime and, if necessary, can prescribe it for your mental health.

Often, the hardest addictions to break are those that are accompanied by mental health illness. Whilst this is very common for the two to occur, it can make treatment complex in the community.

When both an addiction and mental health illness are treated together within the same treatment episode, the risk of relapse is substantially reduced. Our drug and alcohol treatment centres can facilitate effective therapies that enable a full recovery from dual diagnosis. Yes, you can recover from both!

If you or a loved one needs treatment for dual diagnosis, call us for a free, confidential assessment. We will talk you through the various private treatments and other options that we have to offer.

The Cost of Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Wales

How much it costs to go to rehab depends on the facility that you choose to undergo treatment with. Residential inpatient rehab is more costly than outpatient treatment. This is because the rehab centre has to provide you with not only their services but also room and board. The cost includes the use of extra facilities, the services of professionals and additional insurance policies required to cover your care. Rehabs also have to meet a very high standard of treatment and accommodation and ensure that they comply with government regulations.

Usually, you can expect inpatient rehab in and around Wales to charge about £1,500 per week. In a typical 28-day programme, you’ll spend around £6,000 – £8,000 for the whole rehabilitation treatment.

Of course, the actual fees will depend on which facility you go to, and just because one is more expensive doesn’t mean it will be the best place for you. 

Some rehabs can be more expensive as they have better reputations and facilities than others. Luxury rehab centres and the likes of the Priory, for instance, are around £5000 per week or £700 per day. There are also many more affordable treatment options available.

Average Rehab Costs Per Week Start At:

1-week rehab program: £1500+

2-week rehab program: £3000+

3-week rehab program:  £5000+

4-week rehab program: £6500+

The cost of your treatment will also be influenced if you need specialist treatment such as a drug or alcohol detox, for example. However, all costs will be disclosed in full and upfront before you make your decision. We want to make sure you are comfortable with your choice of treatment.

Some rehabs will accept health insurance policies such as Bupa or AXA to cover the cost of your treatment. Check with us which ones.

Detox Treatment In Wales

Many people seeking drug and alcohol rehab in Wales do so because they are unable to stop using substances in their home environment. The nature of addiction causes a sufferer to crave and compulsively take drugs and alcohol. Whilst a home detox is something we can arrange, it is not suitable for everyone.

Some people simply need a safe and different environment to get well in. They need to have their detox treatment handled by medical professionals and need intensive support throughout the recovery process.

A medical detox provides medications for symptom treatment and relief. Clinically, it is the safest way to detox where a drug or alcohol dependence has been identified. The detox medications used are likely to make you feel a little woozy and unsteady on your feet, but they help in maximising your comfort levels. Detox treatment also reduces drug and alcohol cravings and ensures your safety.

You can access a drug or alcohol detox within any one of our CQC-registered inpatient rehabs in Wales or the rest of the UK. We also accept urgent admissions.

Therapies in Drug and Alcohol Rehab Wales

Therapy is a crucial part of the healing and rehabilitation process and will help you to continue to grow in your own recovery back home. Whilst most rehabs have access to a multidisciplinary team of addiction treatment professionals, there is usually only a small team of counsellors so that guests can build a connection with them.

The counsellors who deliver the therapies will be proficient in all of the latest evidence-based techniques. Additional therapies will be delivered by trained therapists and instructors. Any medical treatments will be delivered by qualified doctors and nurses.

Our drug and alcohol rehab centres in Wales offer various evidence-based therapies specifically designed to treat alcohol and drug addiction. Taking a holistic approach to treatment, these therapies are aimed at healing the mind, body and soul of each person, enabling a full and well-rounded recovery.

Therapies and treatments included in our rehab programs:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Integrated therapy and Psychotherapy
  • One-to-one counselling
  • Group therapy
  • Process therapy
  • Trauma therapy
  • 12 Step therapy
  • Art therapy, music therapy and other therapies that use a different medium as a means of communication
  • Addiction education
  • Family therapy program
  • Holistic and wellbeing programme: Including meditation, yoga, fitness, acupuncture, nutrition and life skills

These therapies are in addition to detox medications, vitamin infusions, excursions, gym/spa time, recreation time and visiting times. Different rehabs offer different therapies. Call us to discuss the particular ones you are interested in. There are many more therapies and treatments available.

Aftercare Support

No recovery program is complete without the proper aftercare support. Aftercare is crucial in helping you to transition from rehab back into everyday life. Not only that, but it gives you the added reassurance of continuity of care once your residential treatment has been completed.

Recovery doesn’t end after completing a rehab program. We provide ongoing aftercare support to help you stay active in your recovery journey and prevent relapse. This includes access to support groups, counselling services, and relapse prevention strategies. 

For those who are unable to travel back to the rehab for aftercare, aftercare can be tailored to your individual circumstances. For example, addiction counselling can be arranged online or with a local counsellor.

If you or someone you know is ready to take the first step towards recovery, don’t hesitate to call us. Detox Plus UK is here to guide you through the process and provide you with the support you need.

If you have a loved one who needs rehab but isn’t willing to go, please call us to discuss arranging a professional addiction interventionist.
