Should You Choose a Private Rehab?

Those individuals who have a serious addiction problem and meet certain criteria may be able to get free rehab with the NHS. This can be a good option, but even if you are entitled to this type of funded care, it can still be a good idea to consider other options. Here are just some of the best reasons for why you might want to consider a private rehab:

  • · There is no such a thing as a free rehab, and all of these places will need to be funded somehow. The reality is that the NHS has an increasingly tight budget, and this means that they need ration this resource the best they can. They do this by creating criteria for who is entitled to this type of help. It is their goal to help those who are most in need, but this means that there are plenty of individuals who would really benefit from a stay in this type or programme but just do not meet the criteria.
  • · Even if the individual does meet the criteria for an NHS funded bed, they will still often have to be put on a waiting list. This is problematic because while they are waiting the person will usually be still drinking or using. They can easily lose the motivation to quit, and this means that it will have been a lost opportunity for recovery. With private rehab, the individual can get somewhere almost immediately – unless of course they are determined to go to one specific facility.
  • · One of the nice things about private rehabs is that there will usually be a much better therapist-to-client ratio. This is important because in order to build a good recovery the individual is likely to need plenty of time with this professional.
  • · The private rehabs will tend to be much better resourced. This means that the individual will have more tools to increase their chances of building a successful recovery.
  • · Many of the private rehabs offer a standard of comfort that could be described as luxurious. This can make a huge difference to how the individual experiences early recovery. If people are not comfortable in their surroundings, they can struggle to get the most out of these programmes. In a private rehab, the person can often expect the same level of comfort that they would find in a luxury resort.
  • · There are many private rehabs around the world, such as in places like Thailand. The individual can get to enjoy high luxury surroundings in exotic surroundings, for very reasonable prices.
  • · In the private rehabs, the person is more likely to have their own room and en suite facilities. This is important for those who have concerns about sharing a room.
