Elysium Brighton and Hove Clinic in Hove, East Sussex, England, was recently credited with providing Best Outpatient Rehab care to a patient, saving their life. However, the rehab facility is will be ceasing its rehab operations starting on July.
The private rehab facility, which was formerly part of the famous Priory chain in England, will be changing their focus towards helping youth suffering for eating disorders. The facility was recently credited with aiding a recovering alcoholic, who stated that he stayed at the clinic, which he believes saved his life, after services by the UK’s National Health Services were unable to help him deal with his alcoholism.
The former patient, who, despite having talked about his experience, wishes to remain anonymous, paid £15,000 for their 28-day stay at Elysium back in 2016. According to the former patient, he can say, with complete honesty, that without the Best Outpatient Rehab facility’s care, he wouldn’t have dropped the bottle, which he says would’ve killed him, given time.
The former alcoholic describes alcoholism as a progressive, misunderstood condition, a disease that slowly kills people.
According to him, the high cost of the private care from the facility was similar to the amount of money he was throwing away on alcohol, an amount he considered a good trade-off for saving his life. He says that he is grateful to Elysium, and he is against it ceasing its rehab operations, calling it diluting the options available for the public.
A spokesperson from the clinic said that they have seen a notable decrease in their adult private inpatient services have dropped down, with an increase in outpatient and day-care services. With that in mind, come July 2018, Elysium Brighton and Hove Clinic will no longer be providing adult inpatient services, focusing on their day care and Best Outpatient Rehab services, which will continue providing treatment and aid for issues such as depression, addiction, and anxiety, among others.
The clinic’s inpatient facilities, the spokesperson says, will be diverted to care for youth with eating disorders.
Another spokesperson, this one for NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commission Group, says that they are and still are committed to help those suffering from addiction, as well as their families and their careers.
