Help Me Stop has broken through the price barrier with an affordable, effective day addiction treatment programme that's proven to be as, or even more effective than residential rehab.
Help Me Stop is Rehab in the Real World - effective programmes that are realistically priced, accessible and intensive. At a cost of just £3,000 for our 6-week face to face treatment programme, and £1,500 for our 6-week online treatment programme recovery is now within the reach of more people who need it.
Virtually all residential programmes insist that people join for 28 days or more which makes it difficult for those who still need to work, study or look after children. With our Dayhab programmes, clients can continue to work, study or care for family while in treatment. And with our online programme, our clients don't even have to come into our centre or be in the same country. And because our programmes are available in the mornings, afternoons and evenings recovery fits into daily life.
It’s possible to get local authority funded access to residential treatment but it’s a long and difficult process. Funded places are limited and oversubscribed, so waiting lists are long. While waiting for a place, many will find that their condition deteriorates or their motivation disappears. In extreme cases, they may even die.
According to the 2005-2008 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health, there are five common reasons why people who felt they needed treatment for addiction made no effort to obtain it:
Help Me Stop puts an end to some of these barriers, making intensive treatment affordable, accessible and effective. We call it 'Rehab in the Real World'. Our 6 week face to face Dayhab programme costs less than the average two-week holiday for two in Spain. And our 6 week online programme is even more affordable.
With programmes available in the mornings, afternoons and evenings it makes it really achievable to get treatment around work and home life. And with an online treatment programme, you don't even need to come into one of our centres or be in the UK.
Tried and tested in the US, where Dayhab is now the preferred route for most people, success rates are as high, or higher than those of residential rehab.
When adding up the cost of treatment, you will need to factor in the following additional costs:
Some people become dependent on alcohol or drugs to the extent that they need a medical detox to manage their withdrawal safely. Not everyone needs this but if during our assessment it becomes apparent this is necessary, we will refer you to one of our carefully chosen private detox providers. Some detoxes need to take place in a residential setting but often they can be completed at home. A private home detox can cost around £1,000 for an alcohol detox and around £2,000 for a drug detox.
In some cases, GPs or community alcohol and drug services will provide medical detoxes free of charge.
You'll need to pay for your own travel to and from our centre and provide your own food. We do provide tea, coffee and biscuits and have kitchen facilities you can use. There are also various sandwich shops and places to eat nearby.
We provide all the literature and materials you need to complete the programme, but in addition, we strongly advise you purchase your own copy of the key texts referred to in the programme, these cost less than £10. We also provide links to free versions online.
