Residential Treatment Vs. Outpatient treatments – what’s the difference?
There are a few differences between residential and outpatient treatments and these centre around both the severity of your addiction and the success rates of the treatment.
Outpatient treatment is usually considered for those with milder addiction problems. It relies on a large degree of self-reliance and dedication, traits that do not often appear in those with significant addiction problems.
They offer a higher level of flexibility, as you can leave and go back to your everyday life at the end of each session. It can also be a more affordable option and helpful for those who are unable to commit to residential rehab due to life commitments, such as parenting.
Residential rehab has far higher success rates due to the intensity of the addiction treatment. Whilst it’s suitable for any level of addiction, those with stronger addictions or a dual-diagnosis will most likely be recommended to attend this type of treatment programme in order to give them the most realistic chase of recovery.
Attending residential rehab is an immersive experience, which provides the ideal environment for drug and alcohol addiction recovery. Our partner facilities in the North West of England offer leading addiction treatments and highly qualified medical and addiction recovery staff.
You will have the opportunity to be removed from your daily environment and the triggers that exist within it. This provides the focus that you need to achieve long-term recovery from your addiction, as well as the tools to maintain that sobriety, beyond your stay.
Isn’t private rehab just an expensive option for celebrities?
It’s a myth that private rehab only exists for the ultra-wealthy, such as celebrities. It’s true, there are different levels of rehab treatment facility, just as there are different star ratings at hotels, but there is usually something available for every budget.
Obviously, it will depend on your personal circumstances and the level of treatment that you require, but private rehab can be more affordable than you realise.
During our initial consultation with you, we’ll run through the pricing options and establish what your budget is. The good news is, our partner rehab facilities are determined to make treatment as affordable as possible to those who need it, so there are a variety of treatment plans at different price points and often, instalment payments can be made, ease the burden of paying in one lump sum for the duration of the programme.
Whilst cost will, of course, be a consideration for everyone, it should be weighed up against the unmeasurable cost of a long and healthy life. If you’re determined to be free from drugs and alcohol, we are here to try and help make that happen for you.
How long does a residential rehab programme last?
When you register for the private rehab treatment, you will be given a completely personalised addiction treatment programme that is tailored to your specific needs. How long you will need to attend rehab will depend on a number of factors, which include:
- How long you have had your addiction
- What substance(s) you use
- What quantity of substance(s) you use
- How committed you are to your own recovery and your subsequent efforts throughout the programme
- Whether you have any pre-existing mental health issues
A typical residential rehab programme will usually last around 28 days, as this is seen as the optimum amount of time to end old habits and form new ones.
Programmes can be shorter or longer, however, depending on your personal needs, with some more extreme addictions requiring up to 90 days in recovery.
What sort of addiction treatments can I expect to receive at a North England Private Rehab Facility?
1. Personal Treatment Plan
As mentioned above, on your admission to rehab, you will have a personal treatment plan developed by the experienced therapists and doctors at the facility. A standard multi-disciplinary approach to addiction treatment is used and this includes some of the world’s leading current addiction treatment options.
Your plan will be monitored throughout and adjusted as necessary to give you the best possible outcome.
2. Beneficial Environment
When you attend private residential rehab, the environment has been designed to offer the most complimentary atmosphere for your recovery. Facilities are usually provided in secluded locations with close access to nature, to allow for calm and privacy.
You will also be provided with home comforts, such as a private room with your own en-suite, tv and phone so that you are able to keep in touch with family, should you need to. Scheduled visits with close family members are also encouraged as part of your treatment.
Your other daily needs, such as food, social opportunities and exercise options will also be taken care of. Food will be nutritious and offer you the strength you need to assist your recovery.
You will also be encouraged to eat in the dining room amongst others who are experiencing similar struggles. This gives an ideal social opportunity and strong friendships are commonly formed throughout rehab programmes.
After your admission, detox will be the first addiction treatment for the majority of clients. Detox is a crucial part of any addiction recovery programme and its purpose is to ensure that you are able to overcome the physical reliance your body has formed with your chosen substances before the mental reliance can be addressed.
Although detox can be a daunting concept to many rehab attendees, it can be completed more safely and effectively at a professional clinic. Detox should not be attempted alone, as it has the potential to increase addiction problems further.
There are also some dangerous withdrawal symptoms involved when you detox from certain substances and these require constant monitoring by trained medical professionals.
Those assisting you throughout your detox can help to minimise your withdrawal symptoms and in some cases, offer alternative medications to make your experience more comfortable.
3. Psychological Treatments
Once you have completed a drug and alcohol detox, you will be in the best physical state to begin your psychological treatment.
This section of the programme will consist of a range of therapy options, which will depend on your individual treatment plan, however, are likely to include some or all of the following therapy types:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Support groups
- One to one counselling sessions
- Exposure therapy
- Alternative therapies, such as art and music
- Family therapy
Throughout these psychological treatments, the therapists will be looking to establish the root cause of your addiction as well as changing your perception of substance use. They will try to break old habits, address your triggers and how you can overcome them as well as helping you to develop strategies to prevent relapse.
4. Aftercare Services
Before you leave rehab you will have developed a comprehensive relapse prevention plan with your counsellors. You will also be provided with contact information for a wide range of alcohol and drug recovery support services in the local North West area, such as alcoholics and narcotics anonymous.
Many clients find this type of support network very helpful in the maintenance of their long-term sobriety, post-rehab.
Will I make a complete recovery at rehab?
Private residential rehab treatment offers you the best possible opportunity to overcome your drug and or alcohol addiction, however, you must also be willing to accept that your addiction is a long-term problem that is not a quick and easy fix.
Whilst our aim here at OK Rehab is that our clients only have to attend a rehab treatment programme once, at the beginning of their recovery journey, we must also emphasize that your achievement will be the beginning of your journey.
It might sound overwhelming and inconceivable that you will be in a position to manage your own sobriety, however, addictions become so much easier to manage once they are under control. A rehab programme offers you the opportunity for you to manage your own recovery with sobriety and control.
With a full commitment to your future health, you can achieve a full and sustainable recovery from your drug and or alcohol addiction through the local treatment services available in the North West of England.
