Why private rehab?
Updated: Oct 11, 2021
In New Zealand, mental health and addiction services can be stretched beyond capacity with limited resources with many people desperately needing help.
Unfortunately, some people will face long wait times, which can sometimes be several months or even more.
For those dealing with significant substance abuse, taking a step away from your life can be the best way to really get to grips with dealing with the problem.
For those who need or prefer residential care to address their addiction, private rehabs like Ocean Hills can be a good option. Some of the pros of choosing a private option include:
Help when you need it: There are usually short waiting times – usually weeks or sometimes days.
Only 2-4 weeks: A stay at Ocean Hills ranges from 2-4 weeks, which is usually a realistic possibility to fit around responsibilities and commitments to work and family.
Privacy, discretion and safety: We ensure our guest's privacy at all times.
More one-on-one attention: Ocean Hills is a small facility – it has four beds with a team of qualified professionals that is dedicated to providing 24-hour support and care – which means can get to know you at a deeper level that can benefit your recovery.
A personal touch: Ocean Hills founder, Elaine Atkinson, is a recovering alcoholic of 15 years and is hands-on in the rehab of clients. Most mornings, you'll find her on nature walks with with our guests, sharing her story and offering a compassionate ear.
A nurturing environment: Our facility is a clean, comfortable and cosy home. We provide home-cooked meals and offer activities like yoga, art and equine therapy as well as lots of time in the beautiful nature that Hawke's Bay has to offer.
Cost-effective: We manage costs carefully, balancing the need to provide the best of professional care with affordability. Although the upfront fee for Ocean Hills is an investment, many people have commented that the amount they would spend on their addiction over 12 months far outweighs the cost of treatment to get well, and stay that way.
