Admission To A London Rehab – What To Expect

We will arrange admission once you decide on the rehab programme you wish to undergo. Where there is an urgent need, we can usually arrange this within a day of receiving your call. If required, we can also assist you by arranging sober transportation. This ensures that you arrive safely at the London rehab of your choice.

We do not expect you, nor would we recommend that you stop drinking if you are alcohol dependent. On admission, a consultant psychiatrist or doctor will take an assessment. They will prescribe medications designed to enable you to withdraw from alcohol or drugs as comfortably as possible.

Many people who are addicted fear that withdrawals will be painful or unbearable. We can assure you that this will not be the case. The clinic will prescribe and administer approved medications. Medical withdrawal dramatically diminishes the severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. In many cases, patients will feel no withdrawal symptoms at all.

Patients will be supported clinically by medical staff and therapeutically by counsellors and therapists. During this period, you will undergo light therapeutic treatments. Staff carefully allow patients space to physically recover before undertaking a fully personalised addiction rehabilitation programme.

Our rehab centres guarantee patients a warm and friendly welcome on their arrival. We understand that committing to a rehab and treatment programme is daunting. The staff will do their utmost to ensure patients feel comforted and reassured.

Frequently Asked Questions About London Alcohol Rehab Clinics

How long will I stay in a rehab centre?

The initial withdrawal period can take days to weeks, depending on the nature and severity of the addiction. Following this, the rehabilitation period will usually be a month long. The alcohol rehab London centres offer residential treatment during this period, which is always recommended, certainly in the first month. However, for those who need to return to their homes, there are also several options as an outpatient.

Can I use my phone and laptop in a rehab centre?

Our clinics do allow patients to use their mobile phones.  However, recovery is the main focus during the initial week.

Some London rehabs allow light use of a laptop, providing it does not interfere with treatment. Staff will assess this on an individual basis. You must give your all to the process and engage in the treatment.

Most London treatment centres offer free WIFI to all patients, with excellent coverage throughout the London area.

Can my family visit me in a rehab centre?

Family members are encouraged to visit patients undergoing rehab treatment. The support of those around us helps us understand why we need to recover from addiction and helps to prevent relapse.

Many of the alcohol rehabs in London offer family therapy sessions. These sessions serve a dual purpose in helping both sides to see the other point of view and reach a sound understanding. Building healthy relationships with family members helps to strengthen long-term recovery from alcoholism.

Synthetic cannabinoids, also known as ‘fake weed’ with names like Spice and Mamba are extremely dangerous because?

Correct! Wrong!

Synthetic cannabinoids are a type of new psychoactive substance, developed to have similar effects to the psychoactive substances found within cannabis. Sold under a number of street names including Spice and Mamba, synthetic cannabinoids have skunk marijuana like qualities but are extremely more potent. There is increasing health concern about the impact of these new substances on the physical and mental health of users. It is much more likely to cause distortions in reality, hallucinations and delirium. Other known side effects of the drug include breathing difficulties, stupor, dehydration, vomiting, severe rashes and loss of control over parts of the body. The long term effects are as yet unknown due to the recent introduction of these substances. 
The Psychoactive Substances Act 2016 came into force on May 2016 and applies across the UK and bans the sale, supply, and import of psychoactive substances (previously known as “legal highs”) in the UK.

Having an alcohol or drug addiction and another mental health issue at the same time (for instance anxiety or depression) is classified as a co-occurring condition. All co-occurring conditions should be treated, but it is best to?

Research suggests that mental health illnesses can make it more difficult to treat drug or alcohol addiction, and drug or alcohol addiction can make it more difficult to treat other mental health illnesses. The high rate of co-occurrence and the interaction between addiction and other mental health illnesses makes it important to identify and evaluate both conditions and treat them together.

Alcohol and drug use can alter this development, affecting the brains structure and function causing cognitive and learning problems later in life.
