The virtues of private rehab

Group holding leafs

Why choose private residential treatment? Because residential treatment means you are removed from your ‘using environment’ whilst your treatment is dispensed.

‘Going private’ also means you avoid long waiting lists that are typical when you opt for an NHS detox.

So this year, we urge you to consider our services in Guildford and break free from your addictive past once and for all.

The treatments we offer are designed to strengthen your strategies to avoid drug or alcohol use for the remainder of your adult life.

You will engage in a variety of therapies that achieve this aim. These therapies include CBT, psychotherapy and a range of holistic therapies.

Is rehab suitable for me?

If you are committed, you can benefit from the true value of rehab and find a very suitable programme.

Residential rehab can prove very beneficial for those who would otherwise struggle to complete other forms of treatment.

Take a look at the questions below, do you identify with any of the situations? Try and remain as honest as possible.

  • You drink 30 units of alcohol or more in a single day.
  • You feel suicidal because of your relationship with drugs and alcohol.
  • You experience mental health problems that would subsequently make a home detox very difficult to complete.
  • You have tried to achieve sobriety through multiple outpatient or home detox attempts but failed.
  • You turn violent when intoxicated and have committed acts of abuse in the past.
  • You have diagnosed Wernicke’s Encephalopathy and/or Delirium Tremens.
  • You classify as a high-risk client according to the DSM-5 criteria of substance use disorders.

The DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is a healthcare handbook that helps clinicians diagnose mental health disorders such as addiction.

The main aim of the DSM-5 is that it provides consistent and accurate information provided by psychiatrists to help diagnose the correct disorder.

Once a substance use disorder has been identified, clients can begin to experience a tailored programme to help them achieve recovery milestones.

What are the criteria for the DSM-5?

Female therapist with male

Substance use disorders are classified as follows:

  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Severe

The type of substance use disorder a client is diagnosed with depends on how many of the following criteria they meet:

  1. The time spent using: You spend the majority of your day thinking about or consuming drugs/drinking alcohol.
  2. Tolerance: You have built up a high tolerance to a substance and therefore require much higher amounts to feel the effects.
  3. Hazardous use: You have consumed the substance in dangerous ways e.g., drink driving and overdosing.
  4. Continuous attempts to quit: You have tried to manage your consumption in the past or quit entirely but found it too challenging.
  5. Social or personal issues related to using: Your consumption of substances has caused effects on your relationships or you are in constant conflict with people.
  6. Withdrawal: When you attempt to stop using the substance, you experience very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
  7. Neglected important commitments: You no longer meet deadlines or responsibilities expected of you in your work or home life because of your substance use.
  8. Physical or mental health problems related to use: Your continued substance use had led to complications in your physical health; liver damage, kidney damage, cancer, or in your mental health; depression, anxiety, schizophrenia.
  9. Using larger amounts and quantities: You have started to use much bigger amounts and consume the substance more regularly.
  10. Cravings: You experience intense cravings due to your dependency on substances.
  11. Given up due to substance use: You no longer partake in the hobbies or interests you once enjoyed so that you can consume the substance.

To be officially diagnosed with a substance use disorder (SUD), you must meet 2 of the above 11 criteria within the space of a year.

If you meet 2-3 of the criteria this suggests a mild substance use disorder, 4-5 suggests a moderate SUD and 6 or more indicates a severe SUD which is also known as addiction.

How is alcohol use disorder identified?

Drinking coffee

An alcohol use disorder is most typically identified through a test called an AUDIT. This stands for Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test.

The questions of the test are as follows:

  1. How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?
  2. How many units of alcohol do you drink on a typical day when you are drinking?
  3. How often have you had 6 or more units if female or 8 or more if male, on a single occasion in the last year?
  4. How often during the last year have you found that you were not able to stop drinking once you had started?
  5. How often during the last year have you failed to do what was normally expected from you because of your drinking?
  6. How often during the last year have you needed an alcoholic drink in the morning to get yourself going after a heavy drinking session?
  7. How often during the last year have you had a feeling of guilt or remorse after drinking?
  8. How often during the last year have you been unable to remember what happened the night before because you had been drinking?
  9. Have you or somebody else been injured as a result of your drinking?
  10. Has a relative or friend, doctor or other health worker been concerned about your drinking or suggested that you cut down?

The AUDIT is a 10-question assessment used to determine the severity of alcohol use disorders.

The answers are scored from 0-4 out of a total of 0-40.

If a client scores 0-7 it indicates a low risk of an alcohol use disorder, a score of 8-15 suggests an increased risk, and 16-20 suggests a high to severe risk.

For those who score 16 or higher, we recommend seeking assistance from a rehabilitation unit in Guildford.

How much does rehab in Guildford cost?

The price of rehab depends on many variables such as the location you choose to engage in and the length of your treatment programme.

For an at-home, medically supervised programme you can expect to pay around £1,500.

For those who wish to partake in a comprehensive, 28-day treatment programme consisting of detox and therapy prices begin from around £8,000 for a single occupancy room and £6,000 for a dual occupancy room.

For a 10-day detox only, prices begin from £3,000 for a single occupancy room and £2,000 for shared occupancy.

Rehab in Surrey tends to be priced at the higher end of the cost spectrum due to the scenic views on offer and holistic treatments available to clients.

The admissions process in Guildford

Diverse people in a support group

To ensure that all patients receive personalised care and are placed on the correct programme, clinicians and the team at your clinic will use the ASAM Criteria.

The ASAM Criteria uses six dimensions to create a fair assessment of each client.

It takes into consideration holistic and biopsychosocial factors that allow staff to plan the most effective forms of treatment.

The six dimensions are:

  • Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication and Withdrawal Potential: The first dimension explores the client’s past and their experiences with substance use. It also includes experiences with withdrawal.
  • Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions and Complications: The second dimension explores the client’s health history as well as their current mental and physical condition.
  • Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioural, or Cognitive Conditions and Complications:  The third dimension explores the client’s thoughts, mental health, and emotions they are feeling.
  • Dimension 4: Readiness to Change: This fourth dimension determines the client’s readiness and interest in changing behaviours.
  • Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use, or Continued Problem Potential: The fifth dimension explores the client’s relationship with relapsing and continued use of substances.
  • Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment: The sixth, and final, dimension explores the client’s recovery and living situation. It also includes exploration of things such as social groups, friends, support networks etc.

How long does rehab last?

Therapy room

Inpatient rehab typically lasts for 28 days and is deemed the most effective time for old habits to be overtaken by new, positive ones. It can, however, last for as little as two weeks or as long as three months.

Staff will be able to give you a more accurate timeframe for treatment when you have completed your pre-admission assessment.

Outpatient treatment tends to last a lot longer due to the flexibility it involves and the length of time it can be stretched across.

It usually lasts around two to three hours a day due to clients attending a clinic specifically for sessions before returning home.

At-home detoxes, on the other hand, typically last around 10 days. During this time, patients will be prescribed anti-withdrawal medications to help ease unpleasant symptoms that may present.

From here, clients can decide if they want to enter residential treatment for 2 to 3 weeks to overcome the emotional roots of their addiction and to heal the psychological side effects.

What therapies are on offer at rehab in Guildford?

People in circle holding hands

Whilst clients are given personalised treatment programmes in rehab, there are common therapies clients are encouraged to engage in such as:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy: Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you learn to effectively manage your problems by challenging your behaviour and thought patterns.
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy: Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) is based on CBT and is also a talking therapy. It is specifically adapted for those who feel emotions very intensely and can help you to accept who you are.
  • Motivational interviewing: Motivational interviewing is a counselling approach that helps to form behavioural changes by helping clients explore ambivalence.
  • Holistic therapy: By taking part in equine therapy, mindfulness, yoga, and meditation clients can begin to heal their minds and entire body as opposed to just treating their addiction.
  • Family therapy: Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can help families improve communication. It is usually facilitated by a licensed therapist and can help to avoid unhelpful conflict.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy is also a form of psychotherapy and involves sharing common problems and experiences with peers under the supervision of a therapist.
  • 12-step facilitation therapy: This model is based on interactions with a group rather than an individual. In the UK, 12-step therapy is based on a holistic model and is used throughout many rehab clinics.

What is an intervention?

Group therapy - teens - black and white

Interventions can be very beneficial to those who are unable to see the severity of their addiction and the subsequent effects on their family.

They are most commonly used when an individual is unable to help themselves or are living in denial. With intervention, it is important to stage it correctly or you could risk pushing your loved one further away.

By learning more about addiction and ways to support your loved one, you can begin to facilitate positive change.

Approaches such as the CRAFT approach are recommended by the team at Rehab 4 Addiction as they involve rewards for sobriety.

The CRAFT approach (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) is a family orientated counselling approach to help families support a loved one facing addiction or substance abuse into treatment.

It relies on behavioural principles that ultimately show that rewarding positive behaviour causes it to increase. Similarly, if negative behaviour is ignored it will most likely decrease.

The three main goals of the CRAFT approach are:

  1. To improve the lives of the Concerned Significant Other
  2. Reduce the Identified Patient’s addictive behaviour
  3. Influence the Identified Patient to begin treatment

The differences between private treatment and free treatment

Walking outside

If you or someone you know and love are struggling with addiction, private rehabilitation can provide a haven away from the distractions of everyday life.

It can provide many excellent benefits such as:

  • Immediate admission to a safe and suitable clinic
  • 24/7 medical and emotional support
  • Single occupancy rooms fitted with en-suites
  • Support for co-occurring disorders
  • Holistic therapies

On the other hand, NHS treatment may be your first port of call so it is important to weigh up the pros and cons of this treatment form:

  • NHS treatment is free
  • It provides patient confidentiality
  • It is accessible to all
  • It is located within your community

However, with this form of treatment the negatives often outweigh the positives:

  • Long admissions process and lengthy waitlists
  • Residential rehab is very rare with NHS treatment
  • No support for mental health or co-occurring disorders
  • Those with severe addictions can relapse with outpatient treatment
  • No access to personal therapists

The biggest downfall to private treatment is usually the cost.

However, in recent years many clinics have begun to accept medical insurance and provide payment plans to make treatment accessible to all.

Why is dual diagnosis treatment important?

Those who are experiencing a dual diagnosis i.e., an addiction and a diagnosed mental health disorder such as:

Are at a higher risk of severe illness, relapse, violence, and suicide.

It is for these reasons that we encourage those with a dual diagnosis to seek treatment that can provide the most suitable care.

By opting for private treatment via Rehab 4 Addiction, we can ensure that all of your requirements are fulfilled and that you access a clinic that caters to dual diagnosis.

When addiction and mental health disorders combine, individuals find it harder to qualify for mental health treatment until they have reached sobriety.

This is why we advise bypassing NHS treatment and opting for private care via Rehab 4 Addiction instead.

Withdrawing from alcohol at home

Group therapy - hands in air

Alcohol abuse is a serious problem that requires professional treatment to overcome. By engaging in a detox programme, you can begin to heal safely with the assistance of medical staff.

Many clients prefer the thought of a home detox for many reasons. It is a cheaper option than an inpatient programme and can allow you to withdraw in the comfort of your own home.

Home detoxes can be made a reality for you with the help of Rehab 4 Addiction. A home detox programme begins with an assessment carried out by a psychiatrist and/or doctor.

From here anti-withdrawal medication is prescribed and posted to your home. By engaging in a home detox programme, you must consent to keep daily contact with your clinic who will telephone to monitor your progress.

Home detox programmes tend to last around 10 days, with most clients prescribed Librium to help eliminate unpleasant withdrawals.

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) is used to treat both anxiety and acute alcohol withdrawal. It is a benzodiazepine that acts on the central nervous system and the brain to produce a calming effect.

As mentioned above, clients can choose to attend a residential facility after their home detox is complete to make the psychological effects of withdrawal and recovery more controllable.

Leaving alcohol withdrawals unmanaged can cause a variety of problems to present.

The most typical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

If left untreated, many of these symptoms can quickly worsen and even lead to a fatality.

If you are struggling with withdrawal symptoms during or after your home detox programme, contact Rehab 4 Addiction for admission to a local Guildford clinic.

If utilised correctly, home detoxes can be an excellent way for clients who are at low risk of developing complications to withdraw from substances whilst maintaining commitments of daily life.

Home detoxes are not to be confused with self-detoxes.

Self-detoxes occur when an individual believes they require no medical assistance or anti-withdrawal medication to overcome a dependency on a substance.

They can be very dangerous and lead to a relapse or even death.

Rehab for Heroin in Guildford


Heroin is often considered the most addictive substance. It is derived from morphine and addiction to it can be very difficult to overcome.

Understanding the steps involved in the rehab process can help you to prepare for treatment and life after heroin addiction.

The first step is withdrawal. Attempting to do this anywhere other than a rehab facility will be very challenging since heroin is such a dangerously addictive substance.

Withdrawal symptoms for heroin present like those of the flu and tend to last around 2-7 days.

By undergoing a withdrawal in a medical facility, you can make use of prescription drugs such as methadone to help reduce cravings.

Overcoming a heroin addiction isn’t impossible but it is difficult. With our help, we can ensure you receive personalised care to help you achieve sobriety.

Rehab for Cannabis in Guildford

Cannabis is one of the most abused substances in the world. Intake of THC (the compound in cannabis) leads to impaired judgement, drowsiness, and an increase in blood pressure.

THC binds to the cannabinoid receptors mimicking the feeling of pleasure in the brain.

It is mostly used for entertainment and personal use due to the feelings of relaxation it can provide. Continuous use of cannabis, like any substance, causes tolerance to be built up.

This tolerance usually leads to a psychological dependency where users continue to use the drug even though they understand the complications involved.

Many people who consume cannabis often believe it is bettering their mental and physical health. Therefore, it can be incredibly tricky to try and get someone to seek help.

Relapse prevention at rehab

Before your treatment programme is complete, you will be expected to draw up relapse prevention plans.

These plans help you to identify your triggers, as well as the skills, learnt at rehab and will benefit you if you ever feel as though you may relapse.

A relapse isn’t limited to one single event, it is often categorised as a three-part process as follows:

  1. Emotional: concealing feelings and emotions, avoiding recovery meetings and support groups such as friends and family
  2. Mental: fantasising about drugs and alcohol, constantly referring to past experiences when intoxicated, planning a relapse for a specific date
  3. Physical: using drugs or alcohol again even if just one time

If a relapse happens, returning to treatment is in your best interest. A relapse doesn’t mean that you have failed but rather that your emotional and physical requirements need to be met.

During the first twelve months of your newfound sobriety, your chosen clinic will remain in contact with you to help you navigate any challenges that present.

By attending support groups and meetings you will increase your chances of remaining in long-term recovery.

Are there alternatives to attending rehab in Guildford?
