When it comes to drug and alcohol rehab, Spain is somewhat of a European mecca. Each year, thousands of Brits choose to undergo drug and alcohol rehab in Spain for many good reasons. The chief reason is perhaps to get away from the UK and thus experience drug and alcohol rehab in a totally new environment. Investing in attending a rehab in Spain will also strengthen your commitment to your recovery.
If you would like to discover a range of drug and alcohol rehab options in Spain, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690. Spain has many respected drug and alcohol rehab providers. When you contact us today, we shall explain the benefits of each rehab in Spain. This knowledge will allow you to make a more informed choice. This will also result in you attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Spain that’s perfectly suited to your needs.
Reasons-why you should consider attending rehab in Spain
In the twenty-first century, travelling to Spain is quick, easy and affordable. In less than half a day and well under £100, you can transport yourself to literally anywhere in Spain. In fact, travelling to Spain is widely considered easier than travelling to a UK city that’s located more than 3-4 hours away from your home. Once you step on the plane, you will be whisked away to Spain in around two hours’ time.
A willingness to travel to Spain also vastly increase the treatment options you have at your disposal. For instance, many rehabs in Spain will offer rehab treatment that’s different than that offered in the UK. Spain is, after all, a different country, so you should expect treatment to be handled slightly differently. We feel you should celebrate these cultural differences and embrace them. All treatments will be offered in English, meaning you will get a taste for Spanish addiction treatment without experiencing any sort of language barrier whatsoever.
All rehabs we recommend in Spain are regulated by the Spanish Government and its various agencies. This ensures the quality of care is outstanding. For this reason, Spain has become a popular destination for medical tourism, and drug and alcohol rehab has been no exception in this regard.
Addiction treatment is usually more cost-effective when compared to rehab treatment based in the UK. To access private rehab treatment in the UK, you should expect to pay in the region of £6,000 to 12,000 for a 28-day programme. Some rehabs in Spain charge significantly less for essentially the same level of service.
When considering going to a drug or alcohol rehab in Spain, you must not discount the positive impact due to the superior weather offering in Spain. Spain offers much more sunlight when compared to the UK. Exposure to sunlight increases the amount of vitamin D produced by your body, and vitamin D is known to improve your mood.
Going to rehab in Spain also allows you to tell your friends and family that you are going on holiday. Many people reading this message will not wish to inform their family or friends that they are going into rehab. Going to Spain affords you a believable reason for leaving your everyday life for a relatively short period of time.
What to consider before you go to rehab in Spain
Whilst it may be true that going to rehab in Spain is affordable and easily accessed, you must still assess your situation before you simply jump on a plane.
Importantly, you must access if going to rehab in Spain is workable considering your family and work obligations. Perhaps more importantly, you must assess the likely withdrawal symptoms you may experience when travelling to Spain. You may be well advised to bring a loved one or close friend along with you whilst you travel. Doing so will serve to ensure your care needs are met whilst you travel.
Regardless of any particular rehab clinics physical location, you must also assess your motivation to succeed in recovery. If you are simply unwilling to change, then we would not recommend you travel to Spain to undergo rehab treatment.
If you are the loved one of a person affected by addiction and you feel you are in some way compelling him or her to attend treatment, we do not recommend you send your loved one to a foreign rehab unless your loved one is going off his or her own accord.
We would also recommend you remain in Spain for the entire duration of your loved one’s rehab programme in case your involvement becomes necessary due to unforeseen circumstances.
Selecting a suitable rehab clinic in Spain
If you have read the above and decided that going to rehab in Spain truly is for you, you will then need to go about deciding which rehab clinic in Spain is right for you. Since you are probably travelling from the UK, you will not be too concerned about where in Spain you will receive rehab treatment.
Like the UK, you will be presented with two broad options. The first option is to attend an outpatient treatment provider. Your other option is to attend a residential rehab provider. We shall assume you seek residential rehab. Residential rehab providers offer treatment and accommodation. This means you benefit from the rehab centre’s care throughout your rehab programme.
When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction, we will inform you of all residential rehabs in Spain that we feel are suitable to your needs. We will help you round down your many rehab options in Spain to a manageable number.
