Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centres, Counselling, & Support

Find help and support for addiction in your local area

    When drugs and alcohol start to consume a person’s daily activities, other priorities can fall aside. You might notice that the person you care about isn’t looking after themselves.

    This might be about eating properly, doing things they used to take pleasure in, and maintaining personal hygiene.

    Watching someone you love deteriorate as the substance takes over is a heartbreaking experience. For many families, it can also be incredibly divisive as each person deals with it in their way.

    Some family members might unwittingly become enablers, while others become apathetic having nothing to do with the person.

    The impact of addiction has extreme and far-reaching emotional effects. However, there are also serious physical and mental effects for the person living with the addiction. It’s only through addressing the problem that healing in these areas can occur.

    There are rehab clinics in the Berwick-Upon-Tweed area that are treating and supporting people through recovery every day.

    To find out what the most useful treatment options are for you, call OK Rehab on 0800 326 5559. Our team of advisors specialise in finding the best option so you can begin healing as soon as possible.

We understand common causes, issues with why this health issue continues, and what the most modern and effective treatments are.

    OK Rehab liaises with private clinics throughout the UK. We do this so we understand what’s on offer and what clinics specialise in.

    With this background, we then support people in finding their most appropriate treatment options. When you call us on 0800 326 5559, we’ll lead you through a chat.

    Our team is friendly and professional and if you’re keen to enter rehab services then we’ll carry out a pre-assessment. This is where we find out about you, your addiction and its impact, as well as your recovery aims.

    Our team wants you to reach your goals. By considering your answers and linking this to our knowledge of UK services, especially to those in Berwick-Upon-Tweed, we then guide you through rehab options. 

    We can explain what’s available locally or further afield and can answer any questions you might have about what it’s like to stay at rehab. With your consent, we can then refer you to a clinic. We’re very happy to make all the arrangements and support you up to admission as well.

    OK Rehab exists to make the start of your recovery journey as smooth as possible. We help by slim-lining your options down to the ones which will suit you most so that your decision is made easier.

    NHS Services or Private Clinics: Which is Better?


    Whatever supports a person to recover from an addiction is what is better for them. There are a few large contrasts between free NHS services and private clinics, though, and these should be considered.

    • Although NHS services are free, there have been ongoing cuts to services which means that reduced staffing and availability of treatments are common.

    There are often organisational targets too which can detract from the nurturing approach a lot of people accessing services require.

    Along with this are long waiting times and sometimes, people are ineligible for particular support if they also have a mental health problem.

    • Private clinics have a wide team of specialist staff to work around and support each individual. There are timetables tailor-made to support a person’s healing.

    As well as 24/7 medically supervised detoxes, there are psychological and alternative therapies, as well as regular daily group options.

    Private clinics also have the brilliant aspect of minimal admission times meaning you don’t have to wait a long time for treatment.

    Residents who have mental health issues are also welcomed and treated as the staff recognises that the two illnesses are correlated.

    Cost of Private Rehab


    There are different private rehab options. As well as there is a range of clinics, and within those centres, there are different staff and treatments.

    Each person will require different input. Some people will have severe addictions and will require deep therapeutic and medical support.

    Others might not require that. At its shortest a detox might last three days, at its longest where a physical detox is required, a detox and related medication can last up to ten days.

    The length of a stay at rehab can vary between three days to a month. Some people might require support for other disorders or behavioural addictions at the same.

    Many factors influence the length of stay, treatments needed, and therefore the cost. It’s worth having a chat with OK Rehab about your circumstances to find out what’s available to you.

    One thing that’s useful to keep in mind is that the amount of money spent on alcohol and drugs in a year is usually enough to cover a stay at rehab. It can be useful to ask yourself the question: where do you want to be in a year?
