What is a rehabilitation center?
The most intensive form of treatment for drug addiction is a rehabilitation center. A drug rehabilitation centre enables an individual to detox safely and comfortably. A rehabilitation clinic will offer structured daily activities that focus on the psychological aspects of recovery.
Drug rehabilitation clinics can help people overcome their dependence on alcohol, heroin, cocaine, cannabis, and many other substances. If you suspect that you or your loved one may need help, call us now on 0845 370 0102. Triage Healthcare aims to provide confidential and reliable advice regarding all areas of addiction. Our helpline is staffed by an experienced team of psychology and healthcare graduates.
Our advisors can advise you on drug treatment centres that suit your needs and budget. A rehabilitation clinic should be given serious consideration when establishing what treatment will work due to evidence that a rehabilitation clinic may be the most effective.
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”. Our advice is all completely free and confidential.
When should someone seek drug rehab help?
Rehabilitation centres can help anyone who is dependent on drugs. A rehabilitation clinic should also be given serious consideration when previous community treatment has been unsuccessful.
When a drug dependency is present, there may be noticeable behavioural or mood changes. Behaviour may become very unpredictable. Sleep may be disturbed and the person may appear to be continuously unwell. Drug paraphernalia such as cigarette papers, needles and small weighing scales may also be discovered.
Withdrawal symptoms are also a good indicator of a drug dependence (Trathen et al., 2008). These can be physical symptoms such as sweating, vomiting, increased heart rate, tremors, and difficulty sleeping, or psychological symptoms such as anxiety, aggression, depressive mood etc.

Where to rehab from drug addiction?
The most immediate way to access a drug clinic is via privately funded means. Triage Healthcare work with drug rehabilitation centres all over the UK. Our team of advisors are on hand to help you find treatment suited to your budget and needs.
It is possible to access private overseas services. This option can be particularly appealing to those individuals who have already accessed help in the UK with limited success. By travelling overseas to access treatment, the person is completely removed from their problematic surroundings. Overseas treatment can also represent better value for money in some cases.
How long could treatment in a drug rehab center take?
The recommended minimum length of time at a rehab center is between four and six weeks. However, the longer someone can access psychological and therapeutic support, the better the outcome is likely to be.
How much does a private drug rehab center 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.
