What type of Rehab should I choose?

Read our website carefully and research others online. We have a tried and tested method used globally and recognized by all well respected professionals.

What’s best a local Rehab or travel to another location?

It is preferable to remove yourself from your familiar surroundings making it less likely you will act out on a craving or leave prematurely. Your confidentiality is safe and there are fewer distractions. Statistically clients get better results by travelling to a facility away from home.

What if AA and other Rehabs did not work previously?

No treatment can claim to be 100% successful, and rarely does anyone succeed the first time so keep trying and eventually you will be successful.

Are you worried about the cost?

Hope rehab is very good value and we always try to help and we will offer discounted treatment whenever possible, particularly on extended stays.

How long will it take?

Commitment and completion is very important so seeing treatment through till the end is advised. There is no set period or time frame; rather it depends on the severity of your case so you may need longer than planned. Rehab comes in different stages starting with primary dealing with the immediate problems, then secondary to deal with more enduring underlying problems and finally sober house, which is a transitional phase for reintegrating into society.

Concerned about work, education or relationships?

It can be difficult leaving loved ones however in the long term it’s worth it and family is relieved to know you are in a safe place. Statistically family involvement gives clients better results. Schoolwork is also allowed plus we are happy to help manage your work issues with Doctors letters.

Should I tell my friends and family?

We think so but in an appropriate manor and with our support and guidance, when you are ready. Be proud you are taking responsibility and being honest is a healthy way forward.

Am I free to leave treatment at any time?

Simple answer is YES we have no locks on the doors, treatment does not work unless you are willing. However we will do our best to encourage you to stay as it is often the Addicted part of someone that wants to leave and will find any excuse.
