Finding Rehab Care Online?

When looking for rehab online it is important to remember that there are a number of different treatments available. It is important that the treatment is tailored to the individual - addiction is different for each person; there is no “one-size-fits-all solution”. This consideration is often one that is not catered for when looking for rehab online.

Rehab care refers to residential rehabilitation treatment for substance misuse. Rehabilitation centres can help with addiction to a variety of substances including alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and cannabis amongst others.

When should someone seek rehab care online?

Addiction can completely take over a person's life. This does not have to be the case. Anyone can recover with the right rehab care.

When substance dependence is present, financial problems can quickly become apparent. Unreliability, keeping strange hours, and being secretive are all indicators of an addiction problem. You may also notice an increase in new friends, who don’t seem “quite right”.

Two questions to ask are: 1. Does the person struggle to quit entirely when they honestly want to? 2. When using the substance, does the person have little or no control over the amount consumed?

If the answer to either of these questions is yes, please call us immediately to discuss rehab care. Alternatively, you may wish to look for rehab online, but you should make sure that you know what you are getting for your money.

Types of Rehab Care Available

Residential rehab differs from other treatments in that it is more intensive. The person is given some time away to really focus on getting themselves better. Another advantage is that the person is in a therapeutic environment surrounded by professionals that will make the process as easy as possible. All workers and rehabs in the UK that Triage Healthcare work with are registered with the appropriate professional bodies.

Home based alcohol detox may be a consideration in some circumstances. Triage Healthcare always recommends that residential rehab is considered before home based detox. This is due to the environment in residential rehab being more conducive to a successful outcome. Residential rehab care is also a more cost-effective route to explore. However, if residential treatment is not a feasible consideration, then Triage Healthcare may be able to arrange a home alcohol detox.

How long could rehab care take?

The duration of residential rehab care will vary depending on the particular situation. Drug and alcohol rehab online usually refers to 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 Residential Rehab Care 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 rehab 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 or finding rehab online.
