What is a Rehab Center?

Rehab refers to residential treatment for substance rehabilitation. The best rehab centers in the world can help with addiction to substances including alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and cannabis amongst others.

During rehab the person may need to be assisted through a medical detox (if there is a physical dependence). Withdrawal from certain substances can be life threatening and from others can be extremely uncomfortable. Therefore it is vital that the detox takes place in an environment where professionals are there to support the person throughout the process. The best rehab centers in the world will also focus on the psychological side of the dependence. This will combine several types of therapy such as group and one-to-one, educational seminars, and personal reflection. It is important to understand addiction and the reasons behind it in order to avoid future relapse.

What to look for to find the best rehab centers

When looking for the best rehab centers in the world, it is important to consider many different factors. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to addiction, and any treatment that doesn't consider the person as an individual is unlikely to be successful. Accommodation should also be considered. Whilst accommodation has no impact on quality of treatment, it is important that the facility is clean, comfortable and safe.

Professional supervision should also be considered essential. The advantages of the best rehab centers in the world include the provision of adequate supervision that people so desperately require early on in their recovery. Medical staff members are available to ensure that the person detoxes in the safest, most comfortable manner. Therapeutic staff members are there to make sure that the emotional status of the person is managed, and that they are fully supported throughout the process.

Success rates are also important to consider. It is vital to recognise the difference between “retention” and “success”. Most treatment centres are able to say that they have an extremely high retention rate, but this is not necessarily an indicator of success. Success depends on whether the person achieves the outcome they wanted to on a long-term basis, whether that be controlling their substance intake or complete abstinence. The best rehab centers in the world recognise that retention in treatment is only the beginning of the journey.

It is also possible to access some of the best rehab centers in the world by travelling overseas. This option can be particularly appealing to those individuals who have already accessed rehab in the UK with limited success. By travelling overseas to access treatment, the person is completely removed from their problematic surroundings. Overseas rehab can also represent better value for money in some cases.

How long could treatment at a Program take?

The duration of residential rehab will vary depending on the particular situation.  Centres usually offer programmes between 4 and 12 weeks long. Regardless of the length of treatment, an attitude of ‘seeing it through’ is central to effectiveness (Trathen et al, 2008).

How much does the best rehab center Program cost?

Triage Healthcare recognises that there is a deficit in the provision of affordable private treatment for addictions in the UK. High quality free advice and information is provided to all, as well as best-value private treatment to individuals with a limited budget. If you arrange treatment through Triage Healthcare you will never pay more and in some cases you will pay less for residential treatment than by booking direct with a treatment centre.
