    Why Look for Treatment Outside the UK?

    Traveling For Treatment Outside The UK Is A Great Way For Many Treatment Seekers To Separate Themselves From A Life Of AddictionA lot of the time, people fail at recovery due to their old life pulling them back in. Being in your city, knowing where you can get a fix, is too much temptation for many to deal with. That is why many will travel out of their area for rehabilitation. Even that, however, isn’t enough for some. In that case, a drastic change in environment could be all that is missing from their recovery. In this situation, traveling to treatment outside the UK is advisable.

    Many in the US will travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles to seek rehabilitation. The reason being that they need to change what’s around them if they really want to change what’s going on inside them. It all comes down to their surroundings.

    The Effect of Surroundings on Recovery

    When trying to recover, your mood going into it can have a huge effect on how well you take to recovery. Many studies have shown that weather can directly affect your mood. Not only is living in a place that is regularly damp and cold going to make it harder, just being stuck in the same environment can make it seem like nothing is changing. Changing your climate, might be what you need to begin to feel more positive and give yourself a leap towards rehabilitation.

    Where to Look for Treatment Outside the UK?

    You’ll want to find somewhere that you’ll be able to easily integrate into without much stress or confusion, especially if you are there for rehabilitation. When looking for the right place, you’ll want to keep some things in mind, such as:

    • Language
    • Culture
    • Expense
    • Ease of travel
    • Climate
    • Available programs

    Keeping these things in mind can mean the difference between an informed decision and a shot in the dark. The answer, however, might be further than you think. The UK is a limited area, and you might need a greater change in your surroundings if you want to get clean.

    One of the most obvious destinations would be the US. Given the predominance of the English language, vast landmass, and large number of treatment facilities, UK residents have many options in the US for rehabilitation. No matter what climate you prefer, you can find a clinic somewhere in the US for rehabilitation. In the middle of acres of hills, near forests, off beaches, or anything else. You have your pick of clinics with a wide variety of programs and special, individualized therapies. Some centers will even help you arrange transportation.

    Going to the US for Rehabilitation

    Addiction Treatment Outside The UK Is A Great Way For Many Rehab Seekers To Find SobrietyTraveling to the US for treatment may seem difficult, but it is actually easier than one might suspect. Traveling regularly with a passport puts you at a limit of 90 days in the country and permits you to enter into medical treatment, including rehabilitation clinics. This may work for some who are looking at 30 or 60-day programs. If someone wants a 90-day, or even longer intensive treatment, then applying for a B-2 Visa is highly recommended. On a B-2 Visa, your stay can be up to 6 months, giving plenty of time for any program length, without having to worry about approaching your deadline.

    If you, or someone you love, have failed at past treatment, perhaps the answer lies in traveling somewhere new. Far away from your old life of temptation, and into a new locale where you can truly be free from old bonds. It is natural to have some questions. Traveling so far to stay for a prolonged amount of time can be a scary transition. Luckily, there are dedicated treatment specialists waiting to hear from you. Contact a treatment specialist immediately to find out more.
