Generally, we offer two types of treatments in Surrey: inpatient, and outpatient. Below, we outline the difference between the two:
Residential drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey require patients to move into their centre whilst treatment runs its course. This treatment option is by far the superior choice compared to home detox and outpatient treatment explained below.
This is because patients leave behind temptation and ‘bad influences’ when they move into the treatment centre. Each individual receives a specific recovery and detoxification programme, which is supervised at all times by a highly trained team of medical staff.
Medication can also be administered by a physician if withdrawal symptoms from any substance pose discomfort or a medical risk. There will also be a team of therapists and psychologists on-hand at all times to assist you with any mental, cognitive, or emotional difficulties regarding your recovery.
We also provide full nutritional support, luxury accommodation, and access to all the centre’s amenities (holistic therapy rooms, leisure facilities, outdoor grounds etc.)
Another treatment option in Surrey is ‘outpatient’ recovery. Here patients attend a Surrey clinic during the day, perhaps for a few hours in the morning, afternoon or evening.
At an outpatient clinic, patients typically attend counselling and therapy sessions following a home or residential detox programme. Outpatient treatment may be ideal for those who are struggling and are on a budget or for those unable to take time off work.
Knowing when to go to drug and alcohol rehab can change your life for the better. If the substance intake is severely interfering with your daily life, your professional and social life, then it might be time to consider rehab.
At our drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey, we’ll make sure you get the attention of medical professionals with years of experience in this matter. Taking this sort of action can be intimidating. But if the addiction is getting the better of you, and you feel like you are at your lowest point, rehab might be the only choice.
Here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you determine whether it’s time to go to rehab: be honest with yourself, and try to answer these questions frankly:
Not only can this behaviour be dangerous for you, but also for other road members. And being unable to control whether you drive intoxicated or not is a sign that you might need to enter rehab.
Alcoholism can negatively impact several internal organs, as can various other substances. When your health is taking a toll, rehab should be considered. This can be any clear sign from increased heart rate, trouble sleeping, breathlessness, constant headaches, and any ailments you incur to your body while under the influence.
Another indicator of this is that friends or family keep telling you to stop this destructive behaviour. These are the people who know you best, and who are aware that your behaviour is not you - it is the substance taking control.
It is always easy to hide in your shell and deny you have a problem - this is because your use of substances and behaviour has become normalized to you, a part of your everyday life. Listen to others and let them help you - realise that your behaviour is only going to end up hurting you and them.
Withdrawal symptoms include nausea, headaches, tremors, insomnia, paranoia, irritability, and other visible symptoms. That is a telling factor that your body cannot cope without these substances and something needs to be done about it.
If you are under parole or even been in jail, it's time to stop. When we lose control over alcohol, disregard for the law or certain rules is one of the clear signs.
Research indicates that those who suffer from alcohol or drug abuse are more likely to cause harm to themselves (indirectly or directly) and unfortunately, are more likely to become part of a suicide statistic.
Substance abuse always affects the body in an unnatural and negative way. Stop now before it’s too late.
Have you recently lost your job? When battling substance abuse, it is extremely difficult to commit to professional obligations. This is a common occurrence among many in the addiction and recovery community. This is not your fault – you are ill, and you need help.
A big indicator of addiction and the need to go to rehab is denial. People who are addicted often downplay their consumption, and often remark ‘I could stop if I wanted to.’ The stark reality is, cessation of drugs and alcohol after prolonged abuse is not easy. This is where we can help.

At our alcohol and drug rehab facility in Surrey, we help treat alcohol addictions as well as substance addictions. Our medical experts have years of experience in dealing with patients that require varying degrees of rehab.
Detox is an important step, as are the therapies we discuss below, and finally, complete and thorough medical support for the patient. Treating alcohol and drug addictions also often require us to address underlying mental disorders. That’s why the treatment is usually complex and long-term.
However, we have experts who can help anyone who is struggling with the addictions listed below. Each programme is tailored to each individual.
Here are the substance addictions that we treat at our rehab facilities in Surrey.
Sometimes, addictions are easy to spot as the user acts so differently from their normal selves. Other times, it is difficult as the nature of addiction is to master the art of hiding, secrecy and deceit.
Below, we have listed some of the most common physical and mental symptoms to look out for that could indicate drug or alcohol addiction:
Choosing the right drug and alcohol rehab facility in Surrey can be tricky, as every rehab centre offers different possibilities. It’s important that your goals are satisfied by what the facility has to offer. The first step is defining your goals, and then choosing the facility that will help you meet those goals.
Here are some factors that will help you choose the right rehab facility in Surrey:
If you have any reservations or concerns about these questions, please contact our referrals team and a member of staff will be happy to assist you.
For inpatient and outpatient treatments, you’ll have access to various therapies during your rehab at our centre in Surrey. In addition to detox and individual and group sessions, these therapies will help you shift your mental focus and create a positive atmosphere to help you overcome your addiction.
Not everyone responds to the therapies the same, though. Some therapies will work for some patients, while at the same time, might be ineffective for others. As you enter our facility, we’ll devise a special plan made specifically for your needs.
Here are some of the therapies you’ll have access to during rehab in Surrey:
The goal of CBT is to challenge your existing patterns of thought and replace them with positive ones that will help you overcome addiction. Your thinking patterns are crucial and determine your behaviours, so it's important to shift them to help you stay away from temptations in the long-term.
CBT might be done as both individual or group sessions. In many ways, CBT is the foundational piece of our treatment and is one of the staples of modern psychology.
DBT is very similar to CBT, and it draws a lot from it. The goal of DBT is to help the patient realise things they can and cannot change, and shifting their minds to change things they can change. It's a supportive therapy that helps the patient discover their strengths and use them to fight the addiction.
DBT is usually done as a collaboration between the patient and the therapist. They try to work out together what the patient's strengths are and shift their behaviour in such a way that they avoid the temptations.
The 12 step therapy is aimed towards creating a spiritual foundation with the help of which the patient is able to recover from addiction. In many ways, this 12 step therapy is a guide that helps the patients live a better life, not just overcome the addiction.
These are the 12 steps:
4. Soul searching
11. Making contact
One of the benefits of inpatient treatment is the group of people who you will form friendships with that will inevitably enhance your recovery experience. These individuals are in a similar boat to you, and therefore feelings of judgement and a lack of understanding go out with window.
Group therapy is highly beneficial as it brings the group together, and makes individuals realise they are not alone in their suffering.
Any addiction and recovery expert will claim that although outpatient treatment is a feasible option, inpatient/ residential treatment is by far the safest and most effective treatment for any substance addiction.
It is an investment into your own future, and with the support of our staff, therapists, and also your peers, you will be provided with the opportunity to progress and develop into the person you want to be.
Here are some of the main benefits of choosing inpatient treatment in Surrey today:

Your private rehabilitation process will generally consist of three separate stages: the first starts with you. During this first phase, the assessment, we will get to know you and begin designing a treatment programme with only your health, wellbeing, and recovery in mind.
We discuss the stages in more detail below:
Rehab 4 Addiction maintains a relationship with residential drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey. Upon arrival into the drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey, patients receive a comprehensive physical and psychiatric examination.
This examination is conducted by the centre’s psychiatrist. The psychiatrist is a medical doctor able to prescribe medications designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms during detox.
Detoxification is initiated during the first weeks of drug & alcohol rehabs. Patients receiving treatment in a residential centre are taken care of by a team of medical professionals. The medical staff observe and treat painful withdrawal symptoms.
Patients’ food, housekeeping and laundry are taken care of by the centre’s support staff. Patients’ focus is therefore solely centred on recovery goals.
Once detox concludes patients now attend therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions are conducted by a rotating staff of in-house counsellors and therapists. Therapy attempts to treat the mental aspect of drug and/or alcohol addiction. Patients attend one-on-one counselling sessions.
Sessions also take place in group settings thus allowing patients to interact with others who are struggling with addiction, and thus learn valuable lessons from one another. Typical therapy methods employed include ‘cognitive behavioural therapy’ and ‘acceptance & commitment therapy’.
Drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey also offer ‘holistic therapies’ as well as traditional psychotherapy. Holistic therapies attempt to improve patients’ overall sense of well-being, both from a physical and psychological standpoint. Popular holistic therapies include Reiki, mindfulness, reflexology and art therapy.
Centres also provide ‘family therapy’ sessions. This allows patients’ family members to attend and contribute towards their loved one’s therapy sessions. Family members are thus given a platform to voice concerns and receive treatment themselves.
The family members of inpatients are often equally affected by their loved one’s addiction. Family therapy thus attempts to heal the wounds bore by patients’ family members.
Inpatient treatment follows a solid routine and an intensive type of treatment to help you overcome the addiction. The wake-up time is at 7 am, which is also when the nurses administer medications for the day.
There may also be some private time spent with the clients to get them ready for the day. Then, patients can do yoga or meditation to prepare themselves for the day ahead.
Next comes breakfast – all meals are prepared by a team of highly skilled cooks, who are well-informed on creating dishes that will promote recovery and growth, Foods rich in nutrients, vitamins, proteins and healthy fats will be served throughout the entirety of your programme.
After breakfast, it’s time for individual therapies. These sessions can last anywhere between 45 and 90 minutes and might include CBT and DBT. After this, residents will have some free time to walk around the facility or spend some time in various fitness classes or holistic treatments. Then comes a healthy lunch.
After lunch, the residents might attend group therapy sessions where the patients can discuss their addiction and support each other. After these therapies, clients might attend additional therapies, such as art or music therapies.
Then comes dinner, and after that, some time to discuss things with other peers in the group. Before bed, residents can enjoy some reading or meditation and they go to sleep.
The detoxification process can be a daunting concept: but don’t worry, we are here to help you every step of the way. Detoxification is the first stage of your recovery, and most people struggle.
This is why you chose our expert residential centres. We have decades of experience in treating a wealth of residents. Here is what you can expect from the detoxification process:
During the first day, you'll get acquainted with everyone at the clinic: the staff, the doctors, the nurses, and other patients. You'll be introduced to your room where you'll stay during rehab.
After that, you'll have the ability to discuss your rehab and express your concerns in more detail. A medical examination follows, where the doctors will make a check-up on your physical and mental wellbeing. This will help them determine the course of action that needs to be taken.
Then, a plan will be made specifically for you. Then, the detox can begin. You'll be prescribed certain medications that will allow you to start the detox. After that, you may leave for home to continue with outpatient treatment or stay for inpatient treatment.
This is when the detox will happen, and you'll experience withdrawal symptoms. We'll provide everything you need during this period: from support, to care, healthy eating, various programmes for your health such as yoga or fitness programmes.
Sleep is of the essence here. This is perhaps the roughest period; but once you get through it, it will get better.
After 7-10 days of detox, the body should be free of toxins. Now you are ready to continue with treatment and therapies. You'll be taught how to stay sober in the real world.
It must be noted however that Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome can weeks or months after cessation of an addictive substance. Read on to learn more.
During detox, withdrawal symptoms will occur. For some, they might be more severe than for others. It’s crucial that you undergo detox under close medical care. Some of the symptoms might be more severe and might require medication, which we will provide you.
We’ll help you battle your way through detox; it can be tough, but with proper support and care, you can do it. But this step is crucial to take your life back into your hands and to have hope of a better, sober future.
Below we have listed some of the anticipated withdrawal symptoms from different types of substances:
When you leave the facility, the rehab is not done yet. Now the real test awaits – how you come in the real world, full of temptations. You should try to follow what you learned during rehab, and prevent yourself from succumbing to the temptations again.
We also offer aftercare after you leave our facility in Surrey. It’s another way to transition to the challenges of the real world and stay sober. You’ll get a specific programme and access to some of our therapies.
This way, you’ll strengthen your coping capabilities and remain strong while trying to stay clean. We’ll offer you full support when you need it. This is with our free aftercare programme, which includes a years’ worth of support.
There will be times when it’ll be challenging; however, remember that we are always here to offer support, guidance and to answer any questions you have.
Recovery is an ongoing journey, and it’s better to think of it as a long-term project, even after you leave the clinic. You may have gone through detox, but the real-life test will show whether you’re better.
We recommend that you connect to people suffering from the same problems as you. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous will help you and provide support for you. Additionally, you can enjoy the benefits of the support they provide.
Secondary care facilities can provide the cushion between going through an intense treatment and then joining the real world immediately after that.
These programmes are designed especially for people who have gone through initial detox and are looking to restore some degree of normalcy. These facilities are not as strict as rehab, but they still have some rules; you’ll stay sober, for starters, and there will be minimal to no temptations to relapse.
