All treatment providers we recommend are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or Care Inspectorate.
If you need treatment for a drug or alcohol use disorder, drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius may be an excellent option for you.
One reason to consider going to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius is that it offers plenty of privacy.
Most clients at these rehab centres have sought privacy as they are high-profile. For example, lots of celebrities recover at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius.
They appreciate the high level of security, and the confidentiality policies that the rehab clinic must stick to.
Another reason drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius may be for you is that the rehab facilities tend to be luxurious.
Though this can be the case in the UK, the range of residential rehabs is wider, so you may end up in a more budget-friendly rehab. However, at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, you will benefit from incredible facilities and premium modern treatments.
Finally, some people feel uncomfortable with the idea of recovering at home, where their family have easy access to them.
If your family are threatening your recovery, going to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius would allow you to get sober in a new environment, without being negatively influenced.
You have plenty of choice with regards to drug and alcohol clinics in Barbados and Mauritius – including cost. You can try to find a rehab facility for a lower cost, as there are budget-friendly clinics in these countries.
However, it will be more difficult to go to rehab on a budget in Barbados or Mauritius, because they are known for luxury treatment centres, and you will have to pay for your travel there and back.
If you use Rehab 4 Alcoholism as your private referral service, you will not have to contact a long list of treatment facilities to find out about their prices.
We work with one rehab in Barbados, and one in Mauritius, which means we are very familiar with their services, and we can make referrals in no time.
The inpatient rehab in Barbados will cost you £140,000 per month, or £35,000 per week. You can choose whether you want to complete a full rehab programme (one month), or stay for a shorter period of time.
The rehab in Mauritius is cheaper, at £20,000 per month. Fortunately, we can often provide discounts to our clients, so you could go to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius for a lower price than this.
Rehab 4 Alcoholism offers total price transparency, so you do not have to worry about being referred to a treatment facility that is outside of your budget.
Please keep in mind that these high costs reflect the luxurious nature of the rehab clinics. If you were to go to a more affordable rehab centre, the facilities would not be top-of-the-range, as they are at our rehabs in Barbados and Mauritius.
You can opt into a 28-day recovery programme at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, which is the most expensive yet the most successful course of treatment for most people with addiction.
This is always recommended for people with mental health disorders (dual diagnosis clients).
Some people choose to keep their rehab journey shorter, so they go to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius for a 10-day detox, or for a 3-week programme of detoxing and therapy.
You must remember to factor in travel time when you are considering how long you will be out of the country (especially if you need to take time off work). Including travel, you could be in Barbados or Mauritius for up to 32 days.
When you get back from drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, you may not be ready to go straight back to working. Some people feel prepared for this, but others need more time to adjust to sober life, so make sure you plan for this.
If possible, get as much help as you can from family and friends. This will take some pressure off you in your day-to-day life as you try to stay sober in your usual environment (which is often much harder than committing to sobriety at rehab).
There are plenty of people that are not suitable for drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, so we would never encourage you to focus your search on just Barbados and Mauritius.
Always consider all of your options, including going to rehab in the UK, and possibly even getting outpatient treatment.
If you cannot afford drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, this is of course the main reason to look for rehabs in other areas.
Most people do not have the money for luxury rehab clinics, so it is only a small group of people that can afford to do this.
Another reason to go to rehab elsewhere is if you think you might get homesick, and you would prefer to stay close to your family. Family visits are very important to some rehab patients, and weekly catch-ups with family are only realistic if you stay in the UK.
If you need urgent treatment, it may be safer to go to a rehab clinic that is near to your home, so that you can begin the detox as soon as possible.
If you get in touch with us today, you could even be starting your detox on this very same day, whereas waiting to travel to Barbados or Mauritius would be riskier.
If you are set on recovering outside of the UK, but the distance of these countries is worrying you, you could always choose a rehab facility in a country that is closer to home.

We work with treatment centres all over the country, so it is very likely that you will find a rehab near you.
Below, we provide answers to some common questions about the drug and alcohol rehab process:
The lavish treatment facilities at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius make every patient’s rehab stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Though you will have to undergo a detox, and have difficult conversations in therapy, you will also be able to go on excursions, go to the spa, get a massage, and spend time in a private gym.
During your downtime, you will be able to relax in your private suite or apartment. The rehab hires staff to cook and clean, so you get to enjoy your space without worrying about maintaining it.
Drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius is very different to most residential rehabs in the UK, as it is very common for patients to share rooms in the UK, and there is not always access to a spa or a private gym. However, the lack of cooking and cleaning is the same in every rehab.
Yes, there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know the other patients at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius. You will get time throughout each day to relax, and in this time, you can socialise with other patients.
There will also be daily excursions, which is a great way to connect with people in a natural setting.
You will also spend time with other patients during group treatment sessions. Every day, there will be a group therapy session with a private therapist. Though this is not a time to socialise, you may find it is the best time to forge strong friendships, as you will be discussing painful things, which can create healthy emotional intimacy.
It will be harder to stay in touch with people after drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, as there is no guarantee that you will meet someone who lives near your hometown, and some people may not want to be reminded of their rehab experience.
However, the beauty of the modern world is that you could stay in touch with your friends with phone calls, texts, and video calls. You could even arrange to get in touch on a regular basis, to keep each other accountable in your sobriety.
Firstly, you will need to pack the normal things that you would take to rehab at home, such as things to do (e.g., books), clothes, pyjamas, and toiletries. Check with the rehab facility about their packing rules, as they may ask you to leave your phone or laptop at home.
Secondly, think about the additional things you will need as a result of going to rehab abroad. For example, you will need the essential travel items such as your luggage, passport, and possibly travel-sized toiletries.
Yes, you will have to organise how you are getting to Barbados or Mauritius. This will include booking flights and accommodation (if you need to stay in a hotel before and/or after your flights).
If you have a family member who is willing to help you with this, we recommend asking them for support. It can be difficult to plan ahead when you are struggling so much with your physical and mental health, and having someone to help means that two people will be able to check for errors in your travel plans.
Sometimes, the drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius will offer to arrange transport from your accommodation to the rehab centre, to save you getting public transport or a taxi. However, this is not always offered.
Yes, you can travel with a friend or family member to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius. They will not be able to stay in the rehab facility, for obvious reasons, but they could stay in a hotel nearby.
If family visits are allowed at your chosen treatment centre, they could visit you every week.
It can be great to have someone to accompany you on your journey to rehab for various reasons. If you are suffering with severe alcoholism symptoms, you may need someone with you to take charge of the travel, and to get help if your condition worsens.
If you travel alone, you may start to regret your decision, and you could be tempted to go back home. However, if you have a loved one with you, they can keep you accountable, and provide emotional support when you get anxious about long-term recovery.
Yet, we know that most people will not be able to travel with someone, either because they do not have someone who is supporting their recovery, or their close circle are either too busy to travel, or cannot afford it.
If you relate to any of these circumstances, please rest assured that you can travel alone without experiencing serious problems. If you need alcohol rehab treatment urgently, we do not advise doing this, but if your alcohol abuse is milder, there is no reason you cannot go to Barbados or Mauritius on your own.
One of the disadvantages of going to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius instead of the UK is that your aftercare plan may be slightly lacking.
When you go to rehab locally, you get to return to the rehab for further treatment after completing the treatment programme (e.g., additional therapy). This is of course not possible if you recover in Barbados or Mauritius, so you could miss out on developing a solid community at rehab, and benefitting from the facility’s resources for a full year.
What’s more, the staff at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius will not be familiar with the addiction resources in your hometown.
Though they will research this when preparing your aftercare, you will not get the same treatment as you would at home, where the staff know exactly what’s available in terms of addiction support, e.g., self-help groups (1).
However, we do not want to give you the impression that you would not get excellent aftercare at drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius. They can still provide you with great resources that will help you to stay sober. For example, regular check-in calls and helplines will still be available, regardless of how far away you live.
Before we refer you to drug and alcohol rehab in Barbados and Mauritius, we will need to speak to you about what you want to get out of private rehab, what your health is currently like, and what your experiences are with addiction and recovery from addiction.
We then get in touch with whichever rehab you prefer (Barbados or Mauritius), explain the situation, and ask when they would have a space available for you. Usually, as you are a private patient paying for your care, they will have a space available that same day.
However, if you need time to arrange transport, you do not have to go into treatment that same day. We can confirm your place with the rehab, and they will be in touch with you to find out when you would like to start the rehab programme.
You can also contact us by email by filling out our contact form.
We want to make it clear that referral companies are not a requirement for private rehab in Barbados and Mauritius. You are free to complete a referral yourself, but keep in mind it is likely to be a slower process, and this is often not an option for people with severe alcoholism.
There are various types of rehab centres available in Drug & Alcohol Rehabs in Barbados & Mauritius, including inpatient alcohol rehab, luxury alcohol rehab, and private drug rehabs.
