If you or a loved one suffer from drug or alcohol addiction then you will likely relate to the pain and misery this illness causes. Over time the greater this pain and misery becomes. Swift and professional help is recommended no matter what the nature of the addiction concerned may be. Time is very much of the essence when it comes to tackling the issue of drug and alcohol addiction.
Fortunately, the city of London maintains a World-class drug and alcohol rehabilitation record, thanks to a handful of outstanding centres and clinics.
Why residential rehab in London?
In London, we recommend patients undergo treatment in residential settings. This requires patients to move into the London rehabilitation centre for the treatment’s entire duration. We also refer patients to ‘outpatient clinics’. Here patients undergo treatment from home, only visiting the clinic during the day.
Residential rehabilitation in London is recommended to outpatient treatment. Why? Because patients lose contact with ‘bad influences’ existing outside the centre when residential treatment is selected. Bad influences have the potential to derail detoxification efforts when ‘outpatient’ rehabilitation is attempted. This is not the case with residential treatment.
A tailored approach to rehab
Once you or your loved one is committed to the idea of rehabilitation, it is essential you select a centre best suited to your needs. In London, there exist many rehabilitation centres and so choosing the correct facility can be problematic due to an abundance of choice.
Fortunately, Rehab 4 Addiction is able to advise on the most appropriate centre suiting your needs. Our advice means you select a rehab centre capable of getting and keeping you on the path to long-term recovery.

Timeline of London rehabilitation
Once your London rehabilitation treatment commences, you are required to participate in detoxification. During this time all toxins are flushed from your body. Withdrawal symptoms are observed by a medical team consisting of psychiatric nurses, doctors, health assistants and psychiatrists. ‘Addiction triggers’ existing outside the centre are absent, meaning detoxification is carried out without unwanted temptation. You receive medications specifically designed to treat painful withdrawal symptoms.
Following detoxification, you receive psychological treatment. During this period the ‘mental’ aspect of addiction is tackled. You receive cognitive behavioural therapy designed to identify thoughts triggering addictive behaviours. Once negative thoughts are identified, the therapist arms patients with coping mechanisms designed to help the patient avoid and cope with addiction triggers. This helps patients reduce the risk of relapse following the conclusion of residential treatment.
Life inside a London rehab centre
Rehabilitation takes place in tranquil settings. Patients have access to a sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. Internet access is provided to patients. Patients are permitted access to their mobile phone and laptop to use once detox and therapy sessions have completed for the day. Rooms are typically ensuite and so patients are not required to share a room with anybody else.
What happens after rehab?
Once rehabilitation is complete, you or your loved one receive 12 months of aftercare entirely at the centre’s expense. Aftercare is thus free should the risk of relapse appear once you return to normal life. We maintain close relationships with Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups in the London area. Patients are encouraged to participate in ’12 step programmes’ following the completion of rehabilitation.
