Drug and Alcohol Rehab Options
When locating a suitable drug and alcohol rehab in Wheathampstead, it is important to consider all of your options.
Although you may be under the impression that drug and alcohol addiction treatment can only be sought via an outpatient NHS rehab, this is not true. Drug and alcohol addiction treatment can also be sought via private outpatient and private inpatient rehabs, such as those in our network.
Whilst private inpatient or outpatient rehab comes at a cost, these options are much more advantageous than NHS outpatient rehab. This is because private treatment providers, such as ourselves, can offer industry-leading treatments that are personalised to the needs of each individual. Attending a private inpatient rehab ensures that around the clock care can also be sought.
Just as rehab options vary, the treatment options available do too. NHS outpatient rehabs typically offer detoxification, one-to-one counselling and recommend that patients attend recovery support groups. These treatments are beneficial and help many overcome their addiction. However, due to demand and somewhat limited resources, these treatments are rarely personalised to each individual’s needs.
In contrast, private inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol rehabs in Wheathampstead offer a range of personalised treatments that address the cause of addiction and help those in recovery understand various aspects of their addiction.
Below, we have outlined a number of the treatment options that are available via private inpatient rehabs.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
In addition to the above, many private rehabs, such as our treatment centres, offer dual diagnosis treatment.
Dual diagnosis treatment is required when an individual finds their life impaired by both an addiction and mental health disorder. While not everyone will need to undergo dual diagnosis treatment, at least half of rehab patients will encounter this type of treatment.
Combining addiction treatments such as detoxification and rehabilitation with therapies including trauma and abuse counselling, bereavement counselling and post-traumatic stress disorder counselling, dual diagnosis treatment ensures that both disorders can be overcome simultaneously.
Not only does this reduce the risk of relapse, but it makes a long-term recovery much more achievable.
Our Admissions Process
At Rehab Clinics Group, we are committed to your recovery. As time is of the essence when it comes to addiction treatment, we have designed a straightforward referral process that can be completed within a short space of time.
Understanding that taking the first step in securing treatment can be daunting, we have outlined our five-step referral process below.
Step One – Making An Enquiry
The first step in our admissions process requires you to make an initial enquiry. Our in-house team is available 24/7 and can answer any questions you may have about attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Wheathampstead.
Although many individuals will contact us via telephone, you can contact us via live chat or email if you would prefer to.
Step Two – Pre-Admission Screening
Following your enquiry, a pre-admissions screening will be conducted to ensure that we can learn more about your addiction. This will help us determine which rehab option is better suited to your recovery needs. Upon asking you a couple of questions, we will also recommend which treatments will assist you in overcoming your addiction.
Step Three – Treatment Deposit
Although NHS treatment is extremely advantageous, it should be noted that we typically refer those in need of treatment to private rehabs due to the benefits associated.
With this in mind, if you are happy with our recommendations, we will ask you to pay a small deposit to secure your place in rehab. You will then be offered an admissions date to start treatment.
Step Four – Admission Day
Once your deposit has been paid, you will be welcomed to start your journey towards recovery. On your admission day, you will be provided with a tour of the rehab facilities, and you will have the chance to ask any questions you have.
Step Five – Clinical Assessment
The final step in our admissions process is a clinical assessment. Conducted by a fully qualified doctor, your physical and psychological health will be assessed before you are provided with a personalised recovery action plan.
With a greater understanding of rehab and treatment options, we would encourage you to pick up the phone and give us a call to seek personalised advice and guidance.
Alternatively, chat with us online or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a suitable time for us to call you.

What happens after Rehab?
After rehab, you can expect to receive ongoing care and support from your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Wheathampstead.
