Our private rehab, Primrose Lodge in Guildford, is close by, and here for you whenever you need help either for yourself or for a loved one’s addiction. We have the resources, expertise, and facilities to guide you towards achieving long-term sobriety.
Our addiction clinic specialises in dealing with a wide variety of addictions, such as addiction to prescription medication, alcohol, and illegal drugs. Our service is available to both men and women of all ages, as well as children who are victims of substance abuse.
Our private rehab is situated in a serene location, that provides patients with the perfect conditions to stay focused on recovery, while also protecting them from the stressors and triggers that typically influence them to abuse drugs.
At our private rehab, you will be provided with an individualised course of treatment, that is tailored to treat your unique addiction and its effects on your physical and mental health. Our individualised approach to addiction treatment is far more effective than a one-size-fits-all approach because it cares for all aspects of your addiction and guarantees a comprehensive recovery.
Treatment will typically include a medically assisted detoxification, that will minimise your withdrawal symptoms. This will be followed by rehabilitation, which will care for the psychological aspects of your addiction. We also provide aftercare services, to keep you motivated towards long-term sobriety after you are discharged from our facility.

The Pros and Cons of Private Rehab
There are a number of benefits that come with receiving addiction treatment in a private rehab facility. A primary benefit is access to treatment from highly qualified addiction specialists, as well as all the resources necessary for a successful recovery.
Some other pros of addiction treatment through a private rehab include:
- Immediate treatment: When seeking professional help for addiction in a private rehab, there is usually no delay or waiting list. That is, you can get the quality of treatment you need as soon as you need it.
- Conducive and protected environment that aids recovery: In a private rehab, you will be cared for in a controlled and protected environment, that’s free of the stressors that typically trigger your urge to abuse drugs. Also, you will be made as comfortable as possible, to ensure you stay focused on making a full recovery.
- Medically assisted detox: In a private rehab, you will be provided with a medically assisted detox to help cleanse your system faster, as well as significantly minimise your withdrawal symptoms. It is far more effective and safer than trying to detox on your own.
- Privacy and confidentiality: Your information and communications with our rehab will be kept private, and not revealed to a third party without your express consent. This ensures your addiction and subsequent treatment doesn’t ever become public knowledge.
- Individualised treatment: To ensure no aspect of your addiction goes untreated, you will be provided with a course of treatment that has been personalised to suit your particular needs and condition.
- 24-hour care: Your condition and comfort will be supervised around the clock so that any changes can be immediately and appropriately responded to.
- Aftercare and support: Necessary support and care can still be provided after you have been discharged from private rehab, through aftercare services. Studies have shown that recovering addicts who participate in aftercare have a higher chance of making a full recovery.
- However, there are also a few downsides of addiction treatment in private rehab. Including:
- Some people in Berkshire may find addiction treatment in a private rehab to be more than they can afford
- Addiction treatment at a private rehab isn’t always covered by health insurance
How Much Does Rehab Cost in Berkshire?
The cost of rehab in Berkshire will vary from establishment to establishment. Factors such as the location of the rehab facility, severity of addiction, duration of treatment, and type of treatment offered will all affect the cost of treatment. For instance, inpatient rehab treatment typically costs more than outpatient treatment. Also, if you opt for luxury or executive inpatient rehab treatment, it will cost more than standard inpatient treatment. So, the cost of rehab can vary across different circumstances.
For individuals who may not be able to afford the cost of private rehab, there is always the viable alternative of free NHS addiction treatment in Berkshire.
Free Addiction Treatment Options in Berkshire
NHS addiction treatment options available include:
- Addiction Counselling: If your GP believes counselling is suitable for your condition, you will likely be referred for sessions with an NHS Counsellor.
- Local Drug and Alcohol Services: This will give you access to a variety of low-intensity therapeutic interventions, which will be used to help you quit your substance abuse safely.
- Local Mental Health Team: This will give you access to psychiatrists, psychotherapists, or other specialists.
Any of the above options can be accessed through a referral from your GP or a self-referral in certain circumstances. These options are available, regardless of if you reside in Bracknell, Newbury, Wokingham, or any part of Berkshire. The main benefits of seeking addiction treatment through the NHS is it is free of charge, available to all Berkshire residents, and accessible within your local community.
But, on the downside, NHS addiction treatment can take a while to access, as there is usually a waiting list. Furthermore, your treatment might not be referred to residential rehab, and access to a personal therapist may be limited. Also, you may have to go to different addiction clinics for different treatments. For people who want fast and individualised addiction treatment, getting it through the NHS may not be an effective option.
