NHS Addiction Treatment

For those who cannot afford private rehab treatment in Isle of Wight, there are a number of NHS addiction treatment options that can be accessed.

The main benefits of seeking addiction treatment via the NHS are that it’s usually free of charge, available to all residents, and accessible within your local community.

On the downside, however, NHS addiction treatment can take a while to access, as there is usually a lengthy waiting list. Furthermore, your treatment might not be referred to a residential rehab centre and subsequently, access to a personal therapist may be limited.

Also, you might need to attend numerous addiction clinics for different treatments. For those who want quick and individualised addiction treatment, the NHS might not be the best option.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

Making the decision to enter rehab is a massive step. To ensure the rest of the journey to recovery is as smooth as possible, make sure you choose the most appropriate recovery programme for you. This decision must be considered carefully, as it is indeed a life-changing one.

Speaking to an addiction treatment expert or your GP is a good way to start. They should be able to help you understand your addiction and the options available for treatment. Before you agree to be treated in any facility, you should ask a range of questions.

For example, find out the duration of the programme, the credentials of the medical team, whether the facility is licensed, and so on. Also, it’s important to consider the cost of treatment; the treatments methods employed; the location of the facility; whether or not they offer treatment for co-occurring disorders; and the philosophy of the treatment centre.
