When the decision to seek treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction is made, it is important that you act quickly. It has been proven that the sooner you start your treatments and get the help you need, the smoother your recovery journey tends to be.

And while ideally, you would be able to just jump right into your treatment plan and start to make progress, things tend to be a little more complicated than that. There are certain logistics you need to consider in order to enable your recovery and to gain access to the services found in a drug and alcohol rehab centre.

One of the most important points to consider is of course your budget, this could dictate how long you actually stay at rehab, it could be 10 days or it could be weeks.

At Cassiobury Court, we are able to take your budget into consideration and offer high-quality services and treatment plans no matter what price point option you select.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Payment Options

Depending on your current economic situation, you may be worried about being able to afford the treatment you need.

We want to put your fears to rest and show you that no matter what, there will be options available to you, and you will be able to get access to drug and alcohol rehab services.

The first and cheapest option available is using NHS-run drug and alcohol rehab services.

This is a very good option if you can’t afford any of the others as it is available to everyone living in the UK for free. As with any other NHS service, the drug or alcohol addiction treatments can be accessed when a slot is available.

While this option is very good for its accessibility, it can often cause people already going through a fairly difficult time to experience unneeded stress. The NHS, in recent years, has seen a sharp decline in funding for mental health services which addiction treatment is a part of.

There is, unfortunately, a higher demand for these services forcing them to prioritise only the most serious cases.

In order to get access to treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction through the NHS, you would be expected to meet with various doctors and therapists in order to get a formal diagnosis of addiction. This process can take a long time and isn’t guaranteed to result in treatment being offered.

But should they agree you are in need of help, in most cases, your name will be placed on a waiting list for potentially months waiting for a spot in an NHS drug and alcohol rehab centre to open up.

When you get into the drug and alcohol rehab centre, you will receive treatment as with any other centre. You will just have to be prepared to have it done like any other medical centre run by the NHS. They simply don’t have the staff to offer you constant one to one care.

But it is important to remember they will be able to help you still, and if you have no other options, you shouldn’t be put off from seeking help via the NHS addiction recovery services. But there are differences in the quality of service you get from NHS treatment compared to private rehab.

Paying for Private Rehab

Another option that may be available to you is a private drug and alcohol rehab centre.

If you have private health insurance or your place of work offers private medical treatments, it is worth checking to see if addiction treatments are covered under your policy. This could save you a lot of money and take the stress of payment away so you can focus on your journey to long term recovery.

At Cassiobury Court, you have a few options for addiction treatment if you should choose to go the private route.

There are different tiers of payment so that you are able to select an option you feel comfortable with.

To begin with, it is important for you to remember that a lot of the price for staying at a drug and alcohol rehab centre comes from how long you decide to stay. While it is standard to stay for about a month, with ten days being for the detox and the rest for therapeutic services.

However, there are cheaper alternatives.

The cheapest option you have available is outpatient treatments with an at-home detox, where you would be monitored by the medical team remotely. With this, you also have the option to attend outpatient therapy sessions or to join a local support group in order to help tackle your mental health problems associated with addiction.

The next option you have is a residential stay at a drug and alcohol rehab centre. This option can be very good as many people find it streamlines the process so that you can focus on your recovery and ignore the outside world and its temptations for a bit.

The cheapest residential option you have is to just stay for the detox, which tends to take around ten days to complete.

It is important for you to remember that no matter the option you choose, you will still have access to treatments that will help you get your life back on track. You will, no matter what a team of fully trained medical professionals with years of experience there to help you on your journey to long term recovery and to keep you as safe and as comfortable as possible during your treatments.

You have options, and you are not alone.
