Drug Rehab in The UK
Our rehab centres in the UK have numerous options for alcohol and drug addiction treatment. We not only specialise in the detox from drugs, but we offer help with residential local inpatient drug rehab. The centres that we work with provide bespoke drug rehab programmes. This means that your addiction rehab is tailored to you as an individual and will incorporate many evidence-based addiction treatments to assist in healing you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Drug rehab clinics provide a safe, supportive and secure environment where intensive therapy can be undertaken. On average, a patient can expect to undergo a year’s worth of therapy sessions within a relatively short period. Rehabs appreciate the necessity to heal and learn essential coping strategies and relapse prevention techniques before returning to the community.
Undergoing a drug rehab programme following detoxification from drugs will give you a far better chance of staying clean and in recovery long-term.
What Is Drug Rehab?
A drug rehabilitation facility is a purpose-built facility staffed by a multidisciplinary team of qualified staff – who deliver a professionally run rehab programme. This is usually offered on an inpatient basis, sometimes daycare as an outpatient.
A staffing team comprises experienced and qualified doctors, nurses, counsellors, therapists, holistic therapists, support workers and sometimes consultant psychiatrists.
A good rehab will be CQC registered and regulated. This ensures that high safety and care are adhered to and that the rehab facility is adequately equipped and licensed to deliver the advertised addiction care.
Most drug treatment centres we work with provide a medical detox as part of their service.
Is Drug Treatment Necessary To Stay Off Drugs?
Drug rehabilitation is unnecessary for every individual with a drug problem. However, certain people would undoubtedly benefit from undergoing a programme including:
- Those that repeatedly relapse despite the desire to stay in recovery
- Those that have a long or difficult detox ahead and require support throughout the process
- Those that have a dual diagnosis illness such as depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder or an eating disorder in addition to a drug addiction
- Those that are unable to stop taking drugs despite wanting to
- Those that want to learn how to live and enjoy life without drugs
- Those that need life-saving treatment as drugs are destroying them.
A drug rehabilitation programme, while not necessary in every case of addiction, does deliver life-saving treatment to those that need it most.
Why Do Drug Addicts Need Rehab?
A drug rehab clinic is very specialised and concentrates on healing the individual as a whole person, not just one singular aspect. We have found that this approach is necessary to give each patient the best chance of staying in recovery once detoxed from drugs.
Drug addiction changes the brain. Repeated exposure to a drug that stimulates the brain’s reward system changes the brain’s chemistry and pathways. A drug addict’s brain becomes fine-tuned to plan, seek and take drugs – regardless of the possible negative consequences.
Removing or stopping the drugs does little to change the brain’s pathways. In other words, even once the drugs have been safely removed from the body through detoxification, a drug addict’s

Through adopting healthier disciplines, thought processes and actions, the brain can relearn to seek more beneficial rewards and start to repair itself.

How we can help
If you or a loved one have a drug problem that costs more than money and cannot stop taking drugs, then residential treatment is recommended.
It is essential to understand that drug abuse and addiction are life-threatening and that professional treatment is required to recover.
Drug addiction is not a poor lifestyle choice. Addicts do not choose to destroy themselves, harm their loved ones and harm their careers and finances. Drug addiction is a progressive disease of the brain. Without the correct addiction treatment, it can and does kill.
We help find the best addiction clinic when a physical dependency has developed.
Successful drug addiction treatment treats the mindset that drives the individual to repeatedly take drugs regardless of the negative consequences to themselves and others.
Addiction is much more psychologically complex than just taking drugs to harmful levels.
For an individual suffering from drug addiction to stay free of drugs permanently, we have found, more often than not, that a residential addiction rehab facility is helpful, if not life-saving.
According to the newest Office for National Statistics figures, the number of drug-related deaths recorded in England and Wales has increased to record levels for five years in a row. This comes from July’s report of an 8% rise in drug-related deaths in Scotland.
Drug deaths in recent years have risen to alarming levels. The number of drug-related deaths today far exceeds the number of traffic fatalities recorded in England and Wales. If you have a drug problem, don’t think it won’t happen to you.
Latest Drug Death Statistics For England and Wales
The latest drug death statistics for England and Wales, recorded by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), highlight the following main points:
- There were 3,756 deaths relating to drug poisoning in England and Wales 2017.
- Two-thirds of drug-related deaths were related to drug misuse.
- Female drug-related death rates increased for the eighth consecutive year.
- The North East had a significantly higher number of deaths relating to drug misuse than all other English regions; London had a considerably lower rate.
Deaths involving cocaine and fentanyl continued to rise in 2017.
What Happens After Drug Treatment?
Detox Plus UK do not believe that drug addiction treatment should stop once rehabilitation has been completed. We can, therefore, arrange aftercare either with the rehab facility attended or through a BACP-registered private counsellor locally.
Extended rehab for drug addiction and supported living accommodation are also available. Both rehab options have excellent success rates, enabling the rehab patient to start practising recovery tools in real-life situations and events while still receiving professional support.
Our supported living accommodation resources allow residents to access the following valuable services:
- Further education
- Access to rehab groups and one-to-one key work sessions
- Financial advice and help
- Support for part-time or full-time work
- Support and assistance with relocation and becoming fully independent
- Access to recovery groups and meetings
- Access to local rehab aftercare
- Therapeutic community
Encouraging fellow recovering users can be of tremendous therapeutic benefit and can further assist in determining concerns that may continue to be difficult after leaving the clinic. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) SMART Recovery and several other drug addiction help support groups are active across the UK.
How Long Does Drug Rehab Take?
Based on your assessment outcome, we can recommend how long you should stay in a clinic for addiction.
Anytime in rehab is better than none. However, therapists agree that the longer the inpatient programme, the better the outcome.
Our recommendations will be based on your treatment needs, budget and location. The duration we suggest will be the minimum time required to attain the foundations for long-lasting recovery.
We understand that committing to long-term residential treatment would intimidate most. If you are worried about this, we can assure you that your treatment can be extended at any point; this is easily arranged with the clinics.
Most individuals who attend a drug rehabilitation programme feel tremendous relief at being taken out of the community and put somewhere safe to begin their drug recovery journey.
Your personal experience of drug counselling will be very individual to you. Still, it’s not uncommon for a person to enjoy their experience and look back on memories of rehab with fondness and laughter.
As a general guideline, most rehabs operate similarly. On admission, you are comprehensively assessed by a doctor or psychiatrist. Your accommodation will usually be a single en suite or double en suite with single occupancy or a shared bedroom with a member of the same sex.
Fully residential rehabs offer everything under one roof. This means your accommodation, medication, treatment and food are all catered for within the one residential facility.
Quasi-residential rehabs offer accommodation within proximity of the recovery. They are usually more affordable but have lower levels of support than fully residential.
Rehabs usually provide an onsite medical detox for any drug dependence identified by the physician assessing you. A care plan of treatment will be agreed upon with your focal counsellor, who will be responsible for regularly reviewing your progress.
The most effective treatment options are designed to engage you and are varied and exciting—recovery must be appealing, or no one wants to get sober and clean.
Does Drug Rehab Work?
Substance abuse treatment does work, provided you are willing to engage with the programme and be honest about your addiction.
There is no quick fix to treating addiction, and drug addiction treatment does not cure you of addiction. What it does do is assist in challenging and changing your mindset. It also equips you with the tools to stay in recovery once treatment has finished.
Most addicts in recovery find that they need to focus on their recovery daily and change their way of life. Recovery can be a wonderful and rewarding experience, but it does take work.
Rehabilitation offers specialist treatments for drug addiction and drug abuse that you would otherwise not be able to access in the community, at least not all at the same time and not on a concentrated level.
A good drug addiction treatment programme will include evidence-based addiction treatments such as:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Integrated therapy
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Trauma therapy
- Life skills
- Relapse prevention
- Educational workshops
- Motivational therapy
- Holistic drug treatment therapies, including Auricular acupuncture/ Massage/ Tai Chi/ Mindfulness/ Aromatherapy/ Yoga/ Art / Music/ Drama/ Equine therapy
If there is any particular therapy that you wish to be part of your drug treatment programme, we can help you access the drug rehab centre that delivers it.
