The main difference you’ll see is that you can receive treatment for alcohol addiction privately from a purpose-built rehabilitation centre, or you can receive addiction treatment from free local health services like the NHS.

Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Addiction Treatment
Of course, private treatment for drug addiction is more than expensive than with the NHS as the latter is free.
However, just because it’s a free treatment programme, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be waiting for weeks, maybe months, to receive your treatment and when you do, it’ll be a generic treatment programme which hasn’t been personalised to benefit you at all.
Although you’re paying for your treatment at a private drug and alcohol rehab, you’re truly receiving the best possible addiction treatment, particularly when you join a residential programme as an inpatient.
We strongly believe that this is fantastic value for your time, money and efforts, and the best opportunity for you to create a future free from drug or alcohol addiction.
There are many advantages to private drug and alcohol rehab, especially when you compare it with low-cost treatment from the NHS. At a private alcohol rehab, you benefit from a high level of personalisation when it comes to your treatment for alcohol addiction.
This level of detail means that you’ll benefit from a much more efficient rehabilitation, as well as focusing on the therapies which are likely to give you the best results. You’ll also be able to take advantage of a highly trained team of addiction specialists who are extremely motivated to helping you along your journey to recovery.
Additionally, most private drug and alcohol rehab centres like ours in Streatham offer an inpatient service where you stay with us for the duration of your treatment for drug addiction.
This provides yet another level of care and attention as you undergo your addiction treatment in a highly recovery focused environment with no distractions to deter you from your recovery goals.
How to join our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Streatham
Once you’ve made the brave decision to ask for professional help, our friendly admissions team will take you through the next steps, providing constant support for yourself and support for family.
We will invite you to a pre-screening assessment which allows us to review your physical and psychological health and generally get to understand the nature of your addiction in more detail.
This process will help our team to design the most effective addiction treatment programme to suit your needs. It will also help us identify the underlying reasons of your drug or alcohol addiction so that together we can recognise what may have caused your addiction in the first place.
If you’re happy to proceed, we will arrange a date for you to join our drug and alcohol rehab Streatham where you’ll be welcomed in with open arms. From your first contact with us to actually beginning your addiction treatment usually takes approx. 48 hours.
This short turnaround time is very important to us and is essential to an effective recovery from alcohol or drug addiction. Upon arriving at our rehab, a member of our recovery team will take you through your induction and ensure that you’re settled in before beginning your therapies.
What Addiction Therapies are available at our Drug and Alcohol Rehab?
Any addiction to alcohol or drugs is very complex and requires a wide variety of therapies to be available so that you can take advantage of the ones which work best for you; this is true of our drug and alcohol rehab Streatham.
We have an excellent team of recovery workers who are highly trained in delivering physical, psychological, and well-being therapies to aid addiction recovery. Talking therapies are generally recommended as they’re a great way to offload issues, whether it’s group therapy, family therapy, or one-to-one therapy.
Although it may seem daunting at first, group therapy can be very useful to share your experiences with others who are going through similar situations. You’ll be able to gain a real insight into how other people cope which could in turn help you through your recovery journey.
If you don’t feel comfortable talking within a group, one-to-one therapy can be offered which is private between you and your therapist. This gives you the opportunity to focus more on the causes of your specific addiction and any mental health issues which you may be suffering from.
As well as these talking therapies, it’s important to include sessions which will improve your general well-being throughout rehabilitation such as mindfulness, fitness therapy, art therapy, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, and dietary programmes.
A drug or alcohol detox is also likely to be recommended to you as the best way to remove your physical connection to the substance.
