Admissions are available 7 days a week and can be arranged over the telephone with an initial assessment with our admissions manager. You do not need a referral from your GP – you can refer yourself, or we can discuss the situation with your family member and give them our best advice for your individual situation.
If you are uncertain as to whether residential treatment is right for you, a phone call to our admissions manager will alleviate any concerns and you will have all the information you need to make a decision.
If you would like to visit, with a friend or family member, to help with your decision, you are most welcome – and a visit can be arranged by calling our admissions manager.
A Note on Mental Capacity, Admission under the influence of Substances, Self Discharge and Respecting the Client’s decisions.
Occasionally, clients are fearful of seeking help because they have a perception that they may be detained and prevented from leaving a facility. This is absolutely not the case at Bayberry – we are not a secure hospital and never detain clients – all of our clients are with us because they want to get well and are willingly participating within the programme.
Clients may admit to our service whilst under the influence of alcohol or substances – as this is the very issue for which they are seeking help. It is often not possible (for many reasons, including medical safety) for clients to detox without assistance. The client is involved in all conversations, admissions and assessments.
Similarly, if a client decides, following admission, to discharge themselves then we have no capacity to detain them. We will, of course, do everything we can to effect a safe discharge (for instance ensuring the plan for onward travel, location and family involvement) – however the law is very clear and assumes that everyone has the capacity to make decisions for themselves… that just because someone is making what seems to be an unwise decision, does not mean they lack capacity to make that decision. We, at all times, respect the decisions of our clients and whilst we will help and support them to make choices that support their wellbeing, we will never detain a client against their wishes.
Individuals that have been detained under the Mental Health Act for their own safety, often known as being ‘sectioned’, are not admitted to our facilities whilst this is active. We are not a secure hospital and do not secure doors to prevent clients from leaving. All of our clients have chosen to admit and remain with us for their course of treatment and, if they choose to leave, are free to discharge themselves.
All of our staff are trained within, and adhere to, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 which can be read in full here.
Costs of Treatment
We understand that the cost of treatment may be considered high. However, we would encourage you to look at this in the perspective that is needed when contemplating such a life transforming residential stay.
Alcohol and drugs are expensive. Losing time from work is expensive. The long term effects of addiction or emotional issues that prevent successful employment are expensive. Losing yourself – to substances, to depression, to disorders – costs dearly.
We would encourage you, whether you come to us or to another facility, to consider that you are investing in your future. Your life is worth it.
The NHS does offer some residential places. If you are looking for an NHS place, you must visit your GP for a referral. Many clients tell us that they have tried this route and found that this is not always easily accessible and there may be some delay waiting for a place if one is offered. When clients are ready to accept that they need help, that is the time they most need to get help. Waiting lists are not conducive to this, so, for many, private treatment is the only option.
Other Private Clinics
We are confident that our service offers excellent value for money and the most comprehensive range of in-house, private facilities and treatment modalities, delivered over the highest number of hours, within an inclusive fee, anywhere in the UK.
Our fees start at £2,600 per week and include all meals, drinks, accommodation and full therapeutic programme. We believe our programme offers exceptional value – with a wide variety of treatment modalities included, for one inclusive fee. Please see comparison chart below – this is also useful for comparing our service with other facilities. Our aim is to make the most of the time that you are with us – so, we have no long periods of inactivity.
We understand that everyone is different – so we offer a wide range of differing accommodation options (from shared rooms, to single en suites – right through to feature rooms and private cottages) – and the costs increase commensurate with the accommodation required. Your treatment, however, offers the same clinical excellence and comprehensive programme – regardless of the accommodation that you book.
Private Health Cover
We have arrangements with a number of private health insurers and are a BUPA extended network clinic. If you have private health insurance, checking your policy or speaking with your insurer will assist you in confirming if your policy provides cover for addiction and/or mental health treatment. Our team are happy to assist and can provide supporting information on fees and processes.
Paying for Treatment Yourself
If you (or a friend or relative) are funding your treatment yourself, we offer staged payments throughout the course of the treatment.
On admission, we require:
The Manor – 1 week fee paid (either by cash, bank transfer or by card payment). This is non refundable in the event of early discharge. However, if 2 or more weeks are paid, any subsequent wholly unused weeks will be refunded in the event of early discharge.
The Cottages – 2 weeks fee paid (either by cash, bank transfer or by card payment). This is non refundable in the event of early discharge. Any subsequent wholly unused weeks will be refunded in the event of early discharged. We also offer a discounted 28 day package (which is discounted to acknowledge the commitment to 28 days) - if this is purchased, the 28 day package is non-refundable in the event of early discharge.
The Meadows – 1 week fee paid (either by cash, bank transfer or by card payment). This is non refundable in the event of early discharge. Any subsequent wholly unused weeks will be refunded in the event of early discharge. (For example, if 2 weeks are paid on admission, but the client leaves on day 6, the second week will be refunded).
Each subsequent payment is due in advance, prior to the commencement of the next treatment period.
Loans and Financing
We are currently unable to offer loans or financing directly. However, many clients, or their families, undertake personal loans and equity release loans in order to fund their treatment.
The table below shows what’s INCLUDED with the weekly fee.
(Aftercare at the Manor is not included in the fee, as this is a bespoke service, tailored to the individual and is therefore costed individually).
