“If you are searching for a Heroin rehab, London has some of the best clinics available.”
We understand that by the time a person is ready to go into rehab for heroin addiction, they have usually reached a very low place. This is why it is crucial that you are able to access a service that is completely transparent and will happily answer all of your questions.
London is the capital city of England and therefore has excellent transport links all over the UK. London can be easily reached by plane, train, coach or car.
London is also home to some of the most cutting edge and well-renowned heroin rehabs around the world. There really is no need to travel abroad for treatment, not unless you want to.
If you are in crisis and need immediate help, Detox Plus UK can arrange same day rehab admissions in the majority of cases. We understand the urgency of responding quickly when a heroin addict asks for help.
Local heroin rehabs in London
If you are living or working in the London area and want to find a heroin rehab that is local, we can help.
Living or working in London brings its own unique set of challenges alongside its benefits. Known as the city that never sleeps, working hours are long and the party hours even longer.
Many who work in London are tempted into the high-living lifestyle. Often, this includes drug and alcohol use.
Some people don’t think they have a problem with heroin as they are still able to function. This doesn’t mean that their lives would not be infinitely better and happier without the drug.
Heroin is highly addictive, and, as with any opioid, it has the power to take hold of a person very quickly. If you have an addiction to heroin, one thing we can guarantee is that it won’t get better without the proper treatment.
Due to the unprecedented number of people currently dying from heroin in the UK, it is better to seek treatment sooner rather than later. This could be the difference between life and death.
Thankfully, London is home to some of the most sought after and reputable heroin treatment centres in the UK. They specialise in treating all manner of addictions, using the latest in evidence-based treatments and therapies.
Personalised treatment for heroin addiction
It has been proven, time and time again, that there is no one size fits all for treating heroin addiction. This is why personalised treatment is so very important.
Our addiction treatment experts and counsellors are all in recovery from addiction themselves, as are the vast majority of our rehab staff.
To be able to treat addiction effectively and produce long-lasting results, it is important to be able to assess a patient’s treatment needs accurately.
Part of the free service we provide is to conduct a full assessment prior to arranging a heroin rehab admission.
Our experts measure the severity of your substance use disorder, your physical and mental health and take into account a range of other personal factors. This enables us to pinpoint the rehab programme that will cover all of your treatment needs and ensure your whole being receives intensive healing.
Our personalised heroin rehab programmes in London include:
Medical heroin detox
Our medical heroin detoxes use the latest in approved pharmaceutical medications for the treatment of heroin addiction. Prescribed by one of our doctors, your detox is then overseen by a team of qualified nurses, counsellors and addiction treatment staff. They provide support around the clock and will continue to monitor your wellbeing.
Bespoke treatment programme
Your heroin treatment programme will consist of evidence-based treatments and thoroughly researched holistic therapies. Each therapy is then further tailored to your individual treatment requirements. You will regularly meet with your assigned counsellor to ensure that all bases are being covered and that you are receiving the very best care each and every step of the way
Detox Plus UK understands that the family are gravely affected by a loved one’s addiction. By helping you to recover and by supporting your family, we ensure that everyone is on the same page.
Once your inpatient treatment for heroin has been completed, you will then have access to free aftercare for up to a year. Aftercare is a very important part of the ongoing recovery process and will support you as you adapt, change and grow. Aftercare also provides an opportunity for you to reunite with your peers. You can continue to support one another as you all learn to adapt to a drug-free life.
The cost of heroin rehab in London
The cost of living in or near London is exceptionally high and this can also apply to private heroin rehab. However, we understand that most heroin addicts don’t have access to unlimited funds. So, to ensure as many people can access private treatment as possible, we have a wide range of rehabs to choose from.
Whether you are looking for an affordable heroin rehab or a luxury first-class rehab we can devise a personalised treatment programme to meet your needs, location and budget.
In the event we are not able to meet your budget, we will advise you of the free addiction treatment services available in the London area.
Free heroin help in London
Not everyone has the money to access rehab in London, nor anywhere else for that matter. Luckily, there are plenty of free addiction treatments that are accessible through charities and the NHS
Free NHS heroin services in London offer the following help:
- A triage assessment of your treatment needs (up to 1-week wait)
- Free key worker appointments (1 to 4 weeks)
- Information on local heroin support groups (immediately accessible)
- A doctor’s appointment for any drug or alcohol dependence ( 1 to 4 weeks wait)
- Help with applying for a free heroin inpatient place (anything between 1 month and 12 months)
- A pre-rehab preparation course (completion is a requirement before admitting for a government-funded rehab)
- Low-intensity supportive therapies such as motivational therapy and SMART goal setting
- Referral to an NHS drug addiction counsellor (between 6 and 12 weeks wait)
Many people make the common mistake of thinking they can access an NHS heroin rehab. Sadly, there is no such thing. If there was, there wouldn’t be such a demand for private residential treatment.
The government occasionally (and we stress occasionally) funds treatment for some people with heroin addiction. Funds are very limited and so they tend to be allocated to prolific offenders who are driven to commit crimes by heroin addiction.
Whilst some people who are not too badly affected by addiction can and do get well with the assistance of community services, others find it necessary to be treated within a safe and temptation free environment.
If you are in need of immediate rehab for heroin, it is always worth checking with our London treatment experts.
Often, rehab is not as expensive as some imagine and there are ways and means to fund it with the assistance of family and friends.

Current Covid restrictions for heroin treatment in London
With Covid-19 being very prevalent in most areas of the UK, and London being no exception, our London drug and alcohol rehabs take every precaution to ensure your safety throughout your stay.
As a result of Covid-19, new patients are required to produce a negative test for coronavirus, before they can be admitted to one of our residential treatment clinics.
In line with social distancing and safety regulations, our London inpatient rehabs are offering a limited capacity.
This is good news for those that choose to undergo addiction treatment during this challenging time. A reduced inpatient intake means a higher counsellor to patient ratio and a more family-like environment.
Further Covid-19 precautions include frequent temperature checking and health monitoring, as well as exceptionally high standards of cleanliness and sanitation.
“Any new patients that are admitted for rehab are required to produce a negative Coronavirus test, prior to commencing treatment.”
We understand that coronavirus is a major concern for most people. Our London detox clinics and rehabs do everything they can to prevent its spread and keep patients safe.

A typical day in heroin rehab
Admitting to a heroin rehab for treatment is a big commitment. It is a commitment you undertake to get well by handing yourself over to the care of professionals.
Most people that suffer from addiction need at least some form of professional input and support. It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help, it is a sign of strength, courage and commitment to your own wellbeing and recovery.
As soon as you admit to one of our heroin rehabs in London, you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. Our treatment centres offer a caring and compassionate approach, within a judgement-free zone.
We understand the true nature of addiction as being a physical condition of the brain and a severe mental health illness. No one becomes addicted through choice, however, you do have a say in how your story ends!
“First and foremost, if you are addicted to heroin, stopping abruptly can be very hazardous to your health. You should always consult with a healthcare professional before attempting cold turkey .”
Your treatment within our residential treatment centres will start with a full health consultation conducted by one of our doctors.
Following your health exam, a full medical detox will be prescribed for any drug dependencies identified (including alcohol). Medication is just one element of the effective addiction treatment you will receive. Equally as important, is a comprehensive treatment for the addicted mind.
Whilst you are detoxing you will receive high levels of care and monitoring. Following the successful completion of your heroin detox, you can then immediately start rehabilitation.
Full drug rehabilitation within the safety of one of our rehabs
Drug rehabilitation consists of multiple evidence-based treatments and the latest in thoroughly researched, proven holistic addiction therapies.
All treatments are tailored to target your individual treatment needs.
But, it’s not all hard work during a typical day in one of our rehabs. There are frequent breaks for refreshments, meals and rest. Our rehab programmes are designed to engage you and not overwhelm you.
In the evenings there will be regular games nights, heroin support groups and relaxation. Our centres are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so there will always be someone to talk to and address any concerns.
Treatment programmes available for heroin
Everyone has different expectations as to what they hope to gain from undergoing heroin addiction treatment. We try to take this into account by offering a variety of different treatments, approaches and programmes.
It is important when considering an inpatient treatment programme that we balance your expectations with your actual treatment needs.
Whilst we do have rehabs that have their own private gymnasiums, access to spas and allow the use of laptops, this may actually not be what works best for you, nor fits in with your budget.
During your free assessment, we will take everything into consideration. We will then advise of a heroin treatment programme that will provide you with the optimum chance of a full and lasting recovery
