Drug and Alcohol Rehab Three Rivers
Choosing The Right Rehab For You
After making the courageous decision to undergo drug and alcohol rehab treatment, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is where you’ll receive your treatment. Many people suffering from addiction are also suffering financially as substance abuse can be a very expensive habit to fund.
We understand that the sound of private rehab can be very intimidating and seem like it’s out of reach. However, there are ways that you can be supported financially to receive private rehab, in addition to low-cost or even free treatment services that are available.
Local health services such as the NHS provide a free addiction treatment programme. Whilst this may sound attractive, it’s rare to see successful long-term recoveries from an NHS rehab programme. These addiction treatment programmes aren’t typically effective or as effective as private rehab programmes because the NHS is severely struggling with resources and funding.
They simply don’t have the time and staff to deliver a personalised treatment programme to everyone who requires it. Due to the high volumes of people seeking out treatment, you’ll also likely be added to a long waiting list to receive your addiction treatment which can be detrimental to your recovery.
Of course, this isn’t to say that you can’t achieve a successful recovery from drug or alcohol addiction by utilising the resources from the NHS. Some people with milder addictions or better suited to outpatient treatment may see good results from this form of rehab. However, in most cases, private addiction treatment has proven to be the most effective way to overcome addiction.
When you join a private rehab clinic, you’ll have a team of addiction specialists dedicated to helping you throughout your recovery 24/7. You’ll receive a personalised treatment programme tailored to your specific needs through a pre-screening assessment and benefit from the latest evidence-based therapies delivered by experts.
Whilst there is, of course, a cost associated with private rehab, many people believe this form of rehab to be the best value as you’ll likely see success after one stint at private as opposed to people who may experience failure through NHS treatment plans and must keep returning to rehab, adding on more time, efforts, and stress to the process.
How Much Does Private Rehab Cost?
Many variables can change how much a private rehab programme can cost. The cost will depend on the length of your rehab programme, typically linked to the severity of your addiction to alcohol or drugs.
The cost can also vary depending on whether you receive treatment as an inpatient or as an outpatient; inpatient treatment will usually cost more as you stay overnight at the rehab facility. We urge you not to be put off by the cost of private rehab. It’s worth talking to a team member as your rehab expenses can be supported in many ways.
Common Signs of Symptoms of Addiction
You may have concerns that a friend or family member’s behaviour has changed recently, leading you to believe that they may be suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs. You may also struggle with substance abuse and perhaps be in denial about your addiction. In whichever case, there are some common signs and symptoms that you can look for that indicate a drug or alcohol addiction.
- Do you feel like your cravings for alcohol or drugs control you?
- Do you experience withdrawal symptoms when you’re not consuming alcohol or drugs?
- Do you drink or take drugs at inappropriate times of the day?
- Are you suffering from relationship problems because of your substance abuse?
- Has your physical and psychological health deteriorated because of your drinking or drug-taking?
If you answered yes to any of the above on behalf of yourself or another person, you must seek professional help immediately. In addition to the above, you may notice some physical and psychological symptoms that could indicate a drug or alcohol addiction. These include skin sores, bloodshot eyes, drastic weight loss or gain, pale/gaunt appearance, lack of personal hygiene, increased anxiety or depression, paranoia, or suicidal thoughts.
Treatments and Therapies
One of the first steps you’ll take on your road to recovery is going through detoxification. This is the most effective way to cleanse your body of alcohol or drugs in a controlled and safe way. We will guide you through the detox as your substance consumption gradually reduces until you no longer depend on it. We’ll help you manage any withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness, headaches, seizures, insomnia, or delirium tremens, and prescribe any medication as needed.
In addition to your detox, we’ll tailor a treatment programme for you, including psychological and well-being therapies. These may include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), stress management, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, counselling, relaxation and sleep management, art therapy, music therapy, fitness therapy, nutritional supplement therapy, yoga, and mindfulness.
Personalised Aftercare Plan
Once you leave our drug and alcohol rehab, Three Rivers, you’ll receive a complimentary aftercare plan for 12 months. This will help you transition back into home life and offer additional motivation to keep you on track throughout your recovery. Your aftercare is essential to your overall recovery journey; this personalised plan should certainly be taken advantage of.
We can provide access to local support networks like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, which are excellent groups for sharing your experiences and concerns with others in a similar situation. We can also arrange additional therapy sessions such as family counselling or ongoing relapse prevention, should you benefit from it.
We give all patients a warm welcome at Cassiobury Court regardless of their background. Contact us to start rehab today.

Frequently Asked Questions
While private residential rehabilitation is a more expensive treatment option than most others, you also get the best possible quality of care. The best way to find out how much our treatments are is to call our admissions team, as we offer many different packages which accommodate different budgets. When it comes to addiction treatment, you really cannot afford to choose any other than the best quality of care.
While we can help people to break free from the cycle of addiction, the threat of relapsing will sadly always be there. However, through our relapse prevention planning and complimentary aftercare programme you will be able to keep the prospect of relapse at bay. Relapsing is a threat that you learn to manage and avoid, meaning a lot of successful recovering addicts never relapse.
Approaching someone about their addiction is a very delicate issue. If you do not approach an alcohol intervention or substance abuse intervention correctly then you risk pushing that person further away from receiving treatment. A family intervention should be conducted with care and compassion, and ideally with a trained professional there to assist. Making the person suffering from addiction feel attacked is the opposite of what you want to achieve.
