Government cuts to alcohol and drug services budgets across the country have made NHS local authority rehab placements less accessible due to lack of funding. In response to this we have made a decision to revise our prices to make residential rehab treatment more affordable for private individuals who want to fund their own placements. Our prices are competitive because we are a not-for-profit organisation.
We support families to make informed decisions about the different treatment available.
We could save you thousands of pounds by identifying the most appropriate and cost effective treatment that offers the best possible chance of long term recovery from addiction.
In the UK prices for drug and alcohol residential treatment programmes vary tremendously for detox and rehab placements, but there’s no evidence whatsoever that spending more money gives you a better result, in fact the inverse can sometimes apply if the rehab is simply a hotel style environment without a focussed programme of support and addiction counselling.
However, there is evidence that longer stays in treatment, with the right support, does achieve better sustained recovery rates and it’s the sustained recovery rate success that is key to forging new lives.
ESH Community has an incredibly high sustained recovery rate - Our key measurement of success is the length of time ex-residents stay drug and alcohol free after completing our programme. If anyone should relapse, which can happen from time, we provide the essential ongoing support to get them back on track.
When considering rehab options it is important to understand what is actually being provided because the cost and the quality of rehab support varies tremendously along with the type of support offered.
We operate a fully residential facility with all treatment and accommodation provided at the same location, residents are supported 24/7 by our addiction therapists, we operate a full 7 day programme of activities and meals are freshly prepared by our dedicated catering staff. Our prices include medically assisted detox supervised by our consultant psychiatrist, regular 1-2-1 professional counselling, gym membership, family support and comprehensive aftercare.
The cost of a private stay at our rehab is £6,200 for 4 weeks (28 days) including medically assisted detox, followed by a weekly charge of £895 after the first 4 weeks.
There are other rehabs who operate a quasi-residential system where residents share a house (or houses) remotely and travel by themselves to and from a treatment centre on a daily basis for their programme of recovery activity, going back to shared houses in the evening, unsupervised, to cook for themselves, ultimately leaving them at risk with more opportunity for relapse in the early days when they are vulnerable.
We pride ourselves on providing support which is second to none at a price which is affordable and that gives our residents the best possible chance in their sustained recovery from addiction.
For service providers we are able to offer discounted prices that will fit within most local authority placement budgets.
