Hospital or Rehab – Which is Best for You?
Looking for the right rehab for yourself or your loved one can be a daunting experience.
Google the term “rehab” and you’ll come up with a plethora of options from counselling, medical options, hospitals, retreats in exotic locations through to “tough love” bootcamps.
The big question is, how do you know what rehab is best for you?
For most people, the most important thing when choosing a rehab program is ensuring that the rehab facility offers an evidence-based program that supports demonstrated long term successful outcomes. This, of course, hinges on the client/patient being fully engaged with the process.
Depending on the substance of addiction, a medical detox may also be required.
Hader Clinic Queensland, which is fully accredited by ACHS, offers two distinct pathways for recovery. They are a private hospital program at Hader Clinic Queensland Private, which includes a medically supervised detox, and a residential rehabilitation program at Hader Clinic Queensland.
Benefits of Hader Clinic Queensland Private’s Hospital Program:
- Patients undergo medically supervised detox (often required for extensive polydrug use and complex mental health presentations)
- Treatment is overseen by a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals
- Covered by private health insurance
- Includes parts of the Hader Clinic Queensland’s psychosocial program, which is an introduction to long term rehab
- Can continue onto residential rehab program at a greatly reduced cost (save 40% on residential rehab when completing a hospital program and using private health insurance)
- 28-night stay
Benefits of Hader Clinic Queensland’s Residential Rehab:
- An “all in” program where you are committing to doing the work for your recovery
- 30, 60, 90-day options
- Greater psychosocial component which is better for long term change
- Focuses on behaviour change and addresses underlying psychological aspects of addiction
- Based around a therapeutic community
- Access to psychiatrist
- Includes attendance at NA/AA meetings which is encouraged to continue after rehab
- Ability to do Transitional Housing Program after completion of the 90-day program
Finally, the other big question around rehab is, how much does it cost?
This is where holding private health insurance can make a big difference in costs.
Being private, both our hospital and residential rehab programs come with associated costs. However, private health insurance can be used to cover a large portion of the costs for the hospital program. Depending on your situation, this may be more suitable financially, as the residential rehab is not covered by private health insurance. Additionally, combining a hospital and residential rehab program may be more cost-efficient as well.
