Choosing the right rehab programme is a complex matter. If you are in the south-east of England and need alcohol or drug rehab Kent is one of the best locations. The facility here is one of our most progressive and advanced and offers an intensive programme with positive rates of success in treating drug and alcohol addictions.
Nonetheless, when choosing a rehab programme you must consider whether an inpatient or outpatient programme is best for you above and beyond all else. Outpatient programmes are best for people who are facing mild symptoms or low levels of use and have a strong support network that is positive for their recovery.
Inpatient programmes are better for people who are facing severe or prolonged addiction where relapse has previously occurred, or where their environment is toxic to recovery.
When choosing an inpatient rehab centre, there are certain things that you need to bear in mind. After all, this is all about you and your own needs. Here are some of the most common questions when choosing a rehab centre:
You first need to know what types of addictions the facility treats. In this case, you should look for alcohol rehab or drug rehab programmes. During our initial telephone assessment, we will discuss your substance use in detail with you to see what sort of treatment you require, and for which drug.
Some therapies will entail group sessions as well as one-on-one sessions. Some treatment centres might also offer various holistic approaches, such as yoga and mindfulness meditation, as well as cognitive-behavioural therapy. Art and music therapy has been proven beneficial, but it’s vital that the centre offers the basics such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and the 12 Step Programme that can work around you.
After the inpatient rehab treatment is complete, what are the options that the facility offer? Do they offer outpatient treatment after the rehab is complete? Aftercare is very important for keeping addictions at bay.
Whether you are struggling with alcohol addiction and substance abuse, or you worry that someone you love may need help with these issues we are here to support you in making the right choice. Inpatient rehabilitation programmes are not for everyone, but when applied appropriately they are an effective treatment for alcohol and drug addictions.
We offer a range of treatments for those struggling with alcohol or substance abuse and stay abreast of research to ensure that our methods are always up to date.
In essence, there are two main ways of going about alcohol or drug rehab: outpatient treatment or residential treatment.
Inpatient treatment, or residential treatment, means patients are entirely removed from their ‘using’ environment for up to a six week period. You will completely move into one of our state-of-the-art facilities where you will receive the best round-the-clock care from the comfort of your own new and temporary room.
Upon admission, patients receive a highly structured programme of counselling. This takes the form of group support and 1-on-1 therapy. Following discharge, patients receive a reduced programme of therapy in the form of weekly aftercare sessions.
Residential treatment programmes are far more intense, and in many ways, more successful. Here, the patient remains at the treatment facility for 2-12 weeks and has the right for their family or friends to visit them during that time. The patients get all the benefits of the outpatient treatment plus additional sessions and practices to help with the addiction. These include yoga, acupuncture treatment, massages, mindfulness sessions, and other similar courses.
But perhaps the biggest advantage of residential treatment over purely outpatient treatment is that the patient will remain in a confined environment where they won’t be exposed to drugs or alcohol at all.
With outpatient treatment, the patient enters the rehab facility in the morning and goes through a series of courses of treatment. These courses include one-on-one sessions, group sessions, and workshops. In the evening, when all the sessions are complete, the patient can return back home. Outpatient programmes can be scattered over weeks or even months, as they usually take between 6-12 months to complete.
The problem with outpatient treatment sometimes is that when the patient leaves the facility in the evening, they might easily relapse and will be unable to resist the temptation to indulge in alcohol or drugs again. With residential treatment, that is completely erased and the treatment will be much more intense.
Outpatient treatment allows the individual to carry on with their work-life, home life, and other commitments which is more suited towards some addictions. However, in terms of successful recovery,
Rehab 4 Addiction offers the best drug and alcohol treatment in Kent. Upon admission, all patients receive a full assessment conducted by a consultant psychiatrist. This is followed by an intensive programme of detoxification and is combined with psychotherapy and a range of all-natural holistic therapies. This ensures the underlying causes of addiction are fully treated before you leave our care.
Below we offer a breakdown of the rehabilitation process:
During the initial assessment, doctors and therapists will run several tests and assessing questionnaires that will help them determine the course of the treatment. Usually, the first thing that we do is health assessment, which will give us a better understanding of the patient's health condition. Then, the patient will be asked several questions where it's important that they remain completely honest and open. Nobody will judge, everybody will try to help.
Then the doctors and therapists will analyse the results and devise an individual treatment plan. The word individual is important here, as not every patient will respond to universal treatment the same, so it's important to assess every patient individually.
During the detoxification process, the patient might start to feel the withdrawal symptoms that will vary in severity from patient to patient. Based on the tests from the initial assessment and blood work, the patient will receive medication to help with the withdrawal symptoms and to stabilise their condition. The crucial thing here is to get the patient mentally stable so that they'll cope with the therapy and the symptoms better.
After or during detoxification, additional therapies are just as important as the detox process itself. The patient will receive close attention at this point and will have access to talking therapies, group sessions, and one-on-one sessions.
These can be crucial in the process of rehab, and the patient should be honest with themselves here. It's much easier when you've got someone you can trust with your problems, someone you know won't judge and will do everything they can to help you. We provide that.
All rehab programmes begin with detox and withdrawal. Depending on the severity of usage this may be a medically assisted or supervised withdrawal process. Once the physical withdrawal has finished, the real treatment begins.
Rehab is not just about getting ‘clean’, it is about giving our patient the tools to stay sober in the long run. This is achieved through a structured treatment programme which is intended to instil discipline, thoughtfulness and a set of healthy coping mechanisms.
Breakfast is generally followed by group therapy which focusses on recognizing harmful patterns of behaviour and thought as well as discussions in line with the 12-step programme.
In the afternoons’ daily therapy sessions are undertaken in line with the recommendations of each patient’s assigned physician. This can include group therapy, individual therapy, CBT, psychiatric sessions, and family therapy. In the evenings, 12-step meetings are generally held after dinner.
Each day will also accommodate a few hours of free time in which activities such as sports, reading, writing, or prayer can be undertaken. A set bedtime is in place to encourage a restful and respectful environment and to cultivate healthy habits for the future.

If you or someone you love has committed to a programme of rehabilitation it is important to reflect on the necessary steps you must take in order to complete your stay.
This can mean talking to key family members, making your school or job aware of your situation, and ensuring that any fiscal responsibilities you have are allowed for. It is expected that this will be stressful, but remember that you are not alone in this process. We are here to guide and support you from start to finish.
The centre you choose will always send out a list of essential items for you to bring once you have confirmed space on one of our programmes. Below we have listed some of the items you might need during your stay in one of our rehab centres:
Before entering any facility, a member of staff will enlighten you as to any dress codes or specific items that you are not entitled to bring along with you.
We pride ourselves on the quality of rehabilitation on offer in Kent. Our highly structured addiction treatment ensures patients get back to a balanced and highly structured life. We adopt evidence and skills-based approach to recovery.
This ensures our patients are armed with a range of ‘coping mechanisms’ that help them avoid relapse upon their return to everyday life outside the rehabilitation centre in Kent.
We offer a highly tailored programme of addiction treatment. We only treat up to a maximum of twenty-one patients at any one time. This allows us the ability to offer a highly personable and focused programme and ensures patients do not feel like a ‘number.’ We feel this approach contributes to our outstanding record of helping our patients remain in recovery for many years to come.
Different substances require different approaches to detoxification and rehabilitation. We employ a tailored approach to alcohol addiction and different substance abuse disorders. We offer specific treatment plans for each of the following substances:
The alcohol rehab Kent offers is one of the best inpatient programmes in the country. We treat not only alcohol dependency and addiction, but any co-occurring disorders or mental health issues which may be present. Our alcohol addiction programme consists of a period of detoxification followed by a mix of individual and group therapy which follows the tenants of the AA 12-step programme.
Heroin is one of the most addictive substances in the world, and so treating a substance dependency or abuse disorder which hinges on this substance is complex. This is why we offer an intensive treatment programme which includes a supervised withdrawal with pharmaceutical intervention if necessary.
Following detox, a mixed programme of individual and group counselling as well as therapy sessions and a 12-step programme. We also offer art and recreational therapies as well as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy).
There are currently no pharmaceutical options for assisting in withdrawal from cocaine and crack cocaine. As a result, our current detoxification process includes supervision where necessary. It should be noted, however, that medications such as disulfiram (used to treat alcohol addiction) are showing promise as potentially effective treatments for cocaine addiction and may be used in the future. F
ollowing detox, our inpatient programme includes therapy and counselling (both one-on-one and group) as well as CBT sessions, and, of course, a supportive 12-step approach to long-term rehabilitation.
Benzodiazepines are incredibly addictive pills, and so withdrawal can be a complicated and long process. Following detoxification, we support our patients in maintaining their long-term sobriety through CBT, individual and group counselling, and recreational therapies which are designed to encourage better coping mechanisms.
Cannabis is a divisive issue for many people. While many people use this illicit substance without issue, studies show that it can have a negative impact on mental health. Furthermore, while many people claim it is harmless and non-addictive, this is untrue; many people struggle with cannabis addiction and find it difficult to cope with the co-occurring disorders which are commonly associated with it.
Our rehabilitation programme for cannabis addiction and dependency is progressive and effective. We use a mix of individual and group therapies, recreational therapies, CBT, and psychiatric treatments for any co-occurring disorders that require treatment.
We also appreciate the negative consequences of addiction inflicts on the family members of addicts. For this reason, we highly encourage family involvement at all stages of the treatment process. This includes the following stages of treatment:
Patients are permitted the use of their laptop, tablet or mobile phone whilst undergoing treatment for substance misuse. This ensures our patients may contact their loved ones throughout their stay.
Residential treatment is often only the first step towards alcohol or drug rehab. The most important thing is that the patient is able to stay clean in the real world, as they leave the facility.
That is why we offer the highest quality of outpatient therapy and support – even after the patient finishes residential treatment. You will have the chance to contact us for support at any time, and it is vital that you stay strong during this time and lean on to us for guidance and assistance during weaker moments. Patients are always welcome to come back at any time if they struggle in a real-world situation.
All of our residential rehabilitation programmes are backed up by an entire years’ worth of aftercare. We insist on maintaining close contact with our patients in the initial weeks and months following discharge from our care. This helps ensure our patients are not exposed to an unnecessary relapse risk upon their return home. We also offer an element of aftercare whereby family members of patients may attend bi-weekly aftercare sessions.
Group therapy and a continued support network from everyone at our rehabilitation facilities in Kent mean that our recovering patients constantly feel supported and cared for.
In our inpatient facilities, you will get 24/7 support and care from specialists and therapists who have years of experience. They will do everything they can to help you, whether it’s one-on-one sessions, supportive therapies, holistic treatments, and much more. You’ll be able to stay sober without the temptations to relapse during the stay in our facilities.
You can expect high quality and complete and total dedication to our patients.
All of our facilities and centres offer the highest standard of services which include:
