Overview of Rehab in Surrey

The rehab clinic is situated in a rural location with beautiful surroundings.

Here, you may enjoy the Surrey countryside, well away from temptations available in cities and towns. This environment affords you maximum privacy.

All rooms are single occupancy. Your room is also equipped with ensuite facilities. An on-site gymnasium means you will be able to maintain your fitness activities during your rehab treatment.

Because the rehab is located in a rural area, you will be able to engage in a range of holistic therapies such as equine therapy, countryside walks, bike rides and outdoor meditation.

You will be able to bask in an abundance of fresh air well away from the stresses of “city life”.

The rehab clinic has employed a number of holistic and alternative therapy practitioners who are able to melt away all the stress you bring when you are admitted into the rehab clinic.

The clinic does, of course, also employ medical staff to administer the detox you may require when you are first admitted into the rehab’s care.

Who is rehab suitable for?

Man with pen

Anyone who has a drug and alcohol issue should seek out professional rehab. There are other options, as we’ve detailed below, but this really is the first thing you should consider. 

Especially if you have a more severe issue, drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey will give you access to support on a level that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.

Rehab 4 Addiction will be there every step of the way. The treatment you’ll get with us will also be highly personalised and specifically tailored to your needs. Via our admissions process, we’ll work out what your specific issues are and go from there. 

To get more specific, residential drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey is suitable for: 

  • Anyone drinking over 30 units of alcohol a week, who also has mental health issues (as a side note, drinking to excess constantly without mental health issues is also a huge red flag) 
  • Anyone whose mental health problems would prevent them from effectively healing at home 
  • Anyone who experiences seizures or delirium tremens (hallucinations and/or paranoia), if and when they attempt to stop using 
  • Anyone suffering from Wernicke’s encephalopathy as a result of their addiction. This is a disorder caused when drugs and/or alcohol make permanent changes to your brain. The main symptoms are confusion, memory loss, loss of coordination and vision changes
  • Anyone whose symptoms follow the DSM 5 Criteria for substance abuse. The main symptoms listed there are essentially constant cravings and ignoring the harm that your addiction is doing to your life. 
  • If you’re hurting those around you because of your addiction, either physically or emotionally.

What Are My Treatment Options in Surrey?

People in circle holding hands

We offer two types of rehab treatment in Surrey: inpatient, and outpatient. Below, we outline the difference between the two:

1. Inpatient

At residential drug and alcohol rehabs in Surrey, patients stay on-site, both during the night and day. This may achieve effective results compared to other forms of treatment, simply because you are removed from temptation.

A team of medical staff watch over you at all times. This team can provide you with the medication you need. They can deal with your withdrawal symptoms.

A team of therapists will handle the mental side of addiction. Every day you will go through therapy and meditation to help heal your mind.

Each inpatient Surrey rehab centre is very well-equipped. They provide good food and good facilities. Facilities include holistic therapy rooms and beautiful grounds.

2. Outpatient

Another treatment option in Surrey is ‘outpatient’ recovery. This is where patients come to a clinic for a few hours each day for treatment.

Patients should detox before going to an outpatient clinic in Surrey. At the clinic, they will receive counselling and therapy sessions.

Outpatient treatment is good for those who are on a budget. It can also be good for those who cannot afford to take much time off work.

The admission process for drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey

Two people hugging

To get started on your rehab journey with us, all you need to do is get in touch with Rehab 4 Addiction.

Please feel free to call us on 0800 140 4690

If you don’t feel up for a phone conversation, you can also use the message function on our website or drop us an email.

If you’re just looking for guidance, we can help with that. If you’re concerned about someone else, we can be there for you too, through either advice or intervention.

If you’d like to go further than that into actual treatment, we’ll start off with assessments. These will give us more context for your situation.

This will include questions to cover what you’re addicted to, how long you might have been addicted for, the level of support you currently have at home and how severe your addiction is overall.

Before you get started on any actual treatment, we’ll also ask you to complete a final, full mental and physical assessment.

It’s also important that we look at what state you’re in physically, so we can treat you appropriately.

Addiction does, after all, leave physical impacts alongside mental ones generally.

The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs)

Drinking coffee

Developed by the World Health Organisation, the AUDITs (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) is a more detailed questionnaire.

As the name would suggest, it’s specifically designed for those with a potential alcohol issue.

For each answer, you’ll be assigned points, which will then add up to a score at the end.

It will start with the person questioning you explaining that they’re about to ask some questions on your alcohol habits in the past year.

The first of those questions is “How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?”, with the options being monthly or less, 2 times a month, 2 to 3 times a week and 4 or more times a week.

The next question then gets more specific, as you’ll be asked how many units of alcohol you drink on a typical day when you are drinking. The options there range from 1 to 10.

Continuing the theme of the specific units you’ve drunk, the next one is “How often have you had 6 or more units if female, or 8 or more if male, on a single occasion in the last year?”.

Your choices for answers will be “never, less than monthly, monthly, weekly and daily or almost daily”.

We then move on to the symptom that essentially defines addiction. “How often during the last year have you found that you were not able to stop drinking once you had started?”.

The options for answers here are the same as the previous one.

Addiction also negatively impacts you by inhibiting and damaging the rest of your life.

In line with this, the next question is “How often during the last year have you failed to do what was normally expected of you because of drinking?”.

This is then followed by “How often during the last year have you needed an alcoholic drink in the morning to get yourself going after a heavy drinking session?”

It causes people to behave in ways they normally wouldn’t as well. This is why question number 7 is “How often in the last year have you had a feeling of guilt or remorse after drinking?”.

And the impacts of alcohol on your memory are brought up with question number 8, “How often during the last year have you been unable to remember what happened the night before because you’ve been drinking?”

“Have you or someone else been injured due to your drinking?”

Finally, if those around you are concerned, that could be another big sign that you need help.

So the last question of this assessment is: “Has a relative or friend or doctor or another health worker been concerned about your drinking suggested you cut down?”

Your score out of 40 is added up and should be able to tell you if you have a problem with alcohol and if so what severity.

Pre-rehab steps: Intervention


Before you get to the level of even being assessed for addiction, those around you might flag up an issue.

An intervention is a good way to get through to someone who can’t see that they have a problem.

There are two approaches to this: the traditional approach and the CRAFT approach.

In a traditional approach, those who are concerned about you will air their fears in a meeting, led by a professional.

They’ll read out letters to you detailing how your addiction has affected them, what they hope can change in the future and how they’d like things to be moving forward.

The intention of all of this isn’t to shame you or make you feel bad. It’s to help you see the damage you might have caused, from an outside perspective.

If you can truly understand the situation from an outsiders’ perspective, you might finally be able to see that you need help.

The CRAFT approach is more gentle and involves work from everyone involved.

Founded by Robert J Meyers and William R Miller in the late 1970s, it stands for Community Reinforcement and Family Training.

In this approach, families learn how to communicate effectively and positively reinforce the person suffering from addiction.

On the opposite side of things, those following this approach also don’t reinforce bad behaviour.

Most importantly, this is all about learning to cope with these situations and coming together to support your loved one.

If you have the right structures and environment to help you get through, it’ll make things a lot easier going forward.

How much does drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey cost?

Health and wellness massage for sports and fitness

The price of rehab can vary quite a bit, depending on several factors.

The biggest influences are the severity and type of your addiction, the kind of treatment you’re recommended and the kind of room you want if you’re going to residential rehab.

With Rehab 4 Addiction, a 10-day detox with single occupancy will cost around £3,000 to £6,000. With multiple occupancies, the cost then goes down to £2,000 to £4,000.

Many wills, of course, need a stay longer than 10 days.  And that again changes the cost.

A 28 day stay with single occupancy will be £8,000 to £12,000. Multiple occupancies for that length of time will be £6,000.

Finally, you might be recommended for an at-home detox, which usually comes to £1,500.

This is often an option recommended to those with less severe issues, alongside at home/outpatient treatment in general.

Once again, it all just depends on your specific needs.

Private vs Council Funded Rehab

Group therapy - hands in air

When looking over all of your treatment options, you might be considering either council or private funded rehab.

There are certainly benefits to both and it’s something you should research in detail before making a final decision.

Overall, privately funded rehab is more personalised. This is very important, especially in more severe cases.

Every case is unique, with its own factors and contexts to consider.

You’ll also be seen much faster. This is significant as addiction often worsens over time.

But that doesn’t mean that council-funded rehab can’t be personally geared towards you. And you’ll get the same periods of adjustment, which are needed in an often intense process.

The criteria for substance abuse disorder

head to head

The DSM 5 (aka the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) defines substance abuse disorder in several specific categories.

These layout the most essential symptoms of addiction. Learning them may help to identify issues in yourself or in others, so it’s something you should always pay attention to.

  • Constantly craving whatever you’re addicted to – This is an early and fairly obvious sign of addiction. If you’ve been abusing drugs or alcohol, meaning you’re using them to a harmful extent and you find yourself craving it in between uses? You need to access help.
  • Taking whatever you’re addicted to, or drinking alcohol, in larger and larger amounts – Needing to take larger amounts is often a sign that dependence is developing. If it goes far enough, this can then result in withdrawal symptoms. Slowly increasing your use also adds to the risks for both your health and your life overall.
  • Continuing your use and abuse of drugs and/or alcohol, in spite of harm to your personal relationships – This and the below symptoms are how addiction wreaks a lot of its havoc on your life. You might find yourself hurting people around you for the sake of your addiction and only being able to see the damage you’ve done after it’s too late. A major part of the 12 step programme, which structures a lot of people’s recovery journeys, involves making amends to people you might have hurt.
  • Neglecting other parts of your life because of your addiction – You might also find yourself ignoring commitments or activities – this could apply to work events, hobbies, or any other kind of personal commitment. Depending on the context, this might
  • Continuing your abuse even if it’s putting your life in danger – It goes without saying, but this is the point where addiction can become very dangerous. Ignoring the risks of overdosing, or even the risks of dirty needles and skin infections if you’re injecting drugs, is one of the biggest red flags of all.

How long does rehab typically last?


The amount of time you spend in rehab will depend largely on how severe your addiction is, in addition to how well your treatment goes and your other personal circumstances.

You could be in treatment for 7 days, a month, several months or even a year.

If and when you choose to speak to us, you might want to figure out a general time frame. But we don’t recommend obsessing too much over the time you’ll spend being treated.

It’s better to focus on the healing itself.

In your initial conversations with us, we can go over every option, for both inpatient and outpatient rehab.

Alcohol Detox in Surrey

Industrial bedroom with dark wooden floors

The first stage of any rehab plan is likely to be a detox. Before we move on to any kind of therapy, counselling, workshop or support group, we need to break down your physical connection with drugs and/or alcohol.

We’ll do this by reducing your intake in a safe, controlled manner. This then means that you can avoid withdrawal symptoms.

This is also the point where, if you need to, you’ll start taking specifically prescribed medication, which obviously changes depending on what you’re detoxing from.

When you’re withdrawing from alcohol specifically, you might face some specific withdrawal symptoms.

Even outside of heavy use, alcohol blocks neurons in your brain, leading to things like slurred speech, poor memory and slowed reflexes.

When you drink to excess for long periods of time, your brain will adjust to these effects, resulting in withdrawal symptoms if that intake is reduced.

This is called dependence – a key early sign of it is increased tolerance.

If your alcohol level suddenly drops and you’ve developed a dependence, your system will then react to these symptoms.

This is why we go at a slow and steady pace with a detox, gradually reducing your intake to avoid them.

At the same time, you’ll also be given specific medications, which should help for both withdrawal symptoms and cravings in general.

Kinds of therapy and counselling available through drug and alcohol rehab in Kent

A huge variety of mental health issues can impact addiction. As such, it stands to reason that multiple kinds of therapy and counselling will also be available during rehab.

One of the most widely used is cognitive-behavioural therapy. Often shorted to CBT, this focuses on changing the toxic thinking and behaviour patterns known as cognitive distortions.

These can often inhibit recovery, causing addicts to spiral into destructive patterns.

On a similar note, dialectal behavioural therapy uses the same model. But in this case, there’s a much stronger focus on emotions and how you handle them.

Negative emotions can be a big reason why people develop addictions in the first place. As a result, learning how to properly cope with them is a very important part of recovery.

Motivational interviewing, meanwhile, encourage positive change, through a series of non-judgmental questions.

Holistic therapies use hobbies to help you heal. They allow you to get out your emotions in a healthy way, through something that you really enjoy.

The holistic therapy that works best for you might also be different from person to person.

For example, if you’re someone who connects well with animals, equine therapy could suit you perfectly.

On the other hand, if you’re someone who likes to express themselves creatively, art or music therapy could be a great option.

Healing with like-minded people can be very beneficial, especially as many people suffering from addiction often feel alone.

With this in mind, group therapy could be something to consider. Like support groups, these sessions will also give you permanent connections to people who can truly understand what you’re going through.

On the opposite side of this, many will appreciate the one to one healing and confidentiality of individual therapy. This can take many different forms – but here the main focus will be on you.

Addiction doesn’t just affect the person suffering from it. If it’s hurt your family unit, family therapy can help everyone to heal.

As the name would suggest, Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy encourages you to participate in 12 step programmes.

The wording might change depending on where you go, but generally, the most important parts of this are:

  • Acceptance of a higher power
  • Asking that higher power for help
  • Reaching out to others overall
  • Acceptance that you have a problem
  • Making amends to those you might have hurt

Finally, Co-dependent relationships can really hinder your progress. This could mean that you’re sacrificing your own needs for the sake of others, or that the situation is the other way around.

Either way, this isn’t a healthy way to live.

Some of the most common signs and symptoms of a co-dependent relationship are:

  • A lack of boundaries
  • Low self-esteem for the dependent person
  • Self-denial
  • Control issues
  • Perfectionism
  • A need to “save other people”

To help you overcome this, we may recommend specific co-dependent relationship treatment.

The importance of dual diagnoses during drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey

Female therapist with male

Many people going into this process will also be facing dual diagnoses. This could be multiple mental health issues, multiple addictions or underlying physical health issues.

Either way, you might be shy to come forward about how many issues you have.

But please be reassured that, first of all, we’re equipped to deal with multiple addictions.

Our residential and at-home treatments aren’t just designed for one focus, so you will get full help for any addictions you have.

In fact, many of the most popular mental health treatments for addictions also apply in many other areas. This includes cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectal behavioural therapy and holistic therapies.

Mental health problems are also often a really big part of addiction too. So we’re prepared to deal with any that you might bring into this process.

Finally, your physical health is really important too. We do a full mental and physical assessment before you get started with us for a good reason.

If you have any conditions, we really do need to know about them before we start treating you.

Relapse prevention planning at rehab

Therapy room

Once you finish your initial treatment and have (hopefully) healed, it’s also very important to prevent relapse. And one of the best ways to do that is via an effective relapse prevention plan.

There are several important factors to such a plan, with the first being lifestyle and social changes.

During rehab, you’ll need to figure out what exactly you need to change in your life moving forward.

That could mean changing your social circle, your job, the place where you live. Anything that was potentially driving your addiction before that can go, needs to go.

No rash decisions need to be made in this regard. It will be something carefully discussed during your main treatment. But it will need to come into play eventually.

Speaking of general life outside of rehab and how it could affect you… any potential triggers and cravings are also vital to list.

Think about what your cravings feel like and try to picture anything that could set you off. Learn to identify and figure out how to avoid both.

Finally, you also need a plan in case you do relapse. This should include contact details of anyone you’d want to get in touch with if the worst should happen, as well as an exact plan of action.

If you’ve got exactly what needs to happen in this scenario written down, it will be a really big help.

Contact us on 0800 140 4690 to learn more

Alternatives to residential rehab

Walking outside

It helps a lot of people. But residential rehab isn’t for everyone.

Another option is to speak to your GP. Like a lot of other mental health issues, you should be able to talk it through with them to figure out a solution.

There are also other kinds of private rehab available. Inpatient treatment is particularly recommended to those with less severe issues, who would be more comfortable staying at home.

Instead of going to stay in a residential space, you’ll stay at home, while making regular visits to a centre.

The treatments are largely the same. But the environment you’re being treated in can make a huge difference.

If and when you choose to get in touch with us, this is something we can discuss with you.

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

Group therapy - teens - black and white

Support groups like alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous can help a lot of people to express their emotions in a healthy, confidential environment.

Furthermore, it gives you permanent connections to people in the same circumstances as you.

Many people suffering from addiction feel like they’re alone and that no one can understand what they’re going through.

But being in a room full of people sharing similar experiences can help them see that they’re not.

The relationships you form through such a group can also continue far beyond the initial stages of rehab.

If you really gel with the people there, you can continue to help and support each other well into the future.

Various kinds of support groups are also available. The three main categories are:

  • A 12 step help group
  • A therapy group
  • or a mutual support group.

Therapy groups are generally led by mental health professionals and can be used for various mental health issues as well as addiction.

Finally, the aforementioned 12 step programme is the one most commonly linked to addiction, with the 12 steps being:

  • Admitting to yourself and to others that you have a problem and that you need help
  • Accepting a higher power (although this doesn’t necessarily have to be religious)
  • Surrendering your life to that higher power
  • Identifying where your problems lie/admitting any mistakes you might have made
  • Admitting your wrongs to your chosen higher power
  • Accepting these parts of yourself and then trying to move on from them
  • Asking your higher power to help you with things that you can’t manage yourself
  • Making a list of people you might have hurt before you started your recovery journey
  • Making amends to those people
  • Maintaining this progress
  • Discovering the plan that the higher power has for your life
  • Putting everything you’ve learned into practice and carrying it over to others

Do I Really Need to Go to Rehab?

Diverse people in a supporting group session

Knowing when to go to drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey can be hard. If your substance abuse is hurting your work life and home life, it may be time.

At our drug & alcohol rehabs in Surrey, you receive 24/7 medical care. We will look after you through this difficult time.

Taking this sort of step can be scary. But if things have got worse, Surrey alcohol rehab might be the only choice.

Here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you decide. Be honest with yourself, and try to answer these questions frankly:

  • Do you drive while intoxicated or under substances?: 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
  • Is your health suffering as a result of the substance/alcohol intake?: 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
  • Is your social life suffering? Are you losing contact with family or friends due to alcohol/substance abuse?:  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
  • Do you experience withdrawal symptoms after you stop drinking or taking drugs?: 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.
  • Have you lost your personal freedom due to substance abuse?: 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
  • Are you harming yourself or others when under influence?: 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
  • Is your career suffering as a result of the abuse?: 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
  • Have you tried to quit but failed before?: 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

What Sort of Therapies Can I Access During Rehab in Surrey?

Couple meeting a therapist

Our inpatient rehab centres in Surrey provide a range of therapies.

Every person in recovery is different. A form of therapy that works for one, may not work for another. That’s why our centres create treatment plans for your personal needs.

Here are some therapies you’ll have access to during drug and alcohol rehab in Surrey:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: 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
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy: 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 shift 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
  • 12 Step Therapy: 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
  • Group Therapy: One of the benefits of inpatient treatment is the group of people with who you will form friendships 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 the window. Group therapy is highly beneficial as it brings the group together, and makes individuals realise they are not alone in their suffering

What Are the Benefits of Private Rehab in Surrey?


Here are the main benefits of choosing inpatient treatment in Surrey today:

  • You’re not alone. You receive constant support from medical experts
  • There will be no temptation for you to relapse
  • Medication is on hand if needed
  • You won’t receive any judgement
  • You’ll learn more about yourself
  • It will inspire you and motivate you
  • You’ll learn valuable skills that addiction may have taken away
  • You can build relationships with other people in your situation

Three stages of Rehab

Group holding leafs

The rehab process has three stages. The first starts with you. During this phase, we will create a treatment programme for your needs.

We discuss the stages in more detail below:

  1. 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
  2. Detox – eliminating substances from the body: Detoxification is initiated during the first weeks of drug & alcohol rehab. 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.
  3. Rehabilitation – treating the mental aspect of addiction:  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’

What Does the Detox Process Include in Surrey Rehab?

The detox process is the first stage of your recovery, and most people struggle.  This is why you chose our expert residential centres in Surrey.

We have decades of experience in treating a wealth of residents. Here is what you can expect from the detox process:

  • Day One: 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 the 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

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

What Happens After Surrey Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Surrey rehab is about more than just a few weeks you spend in a treatment centre. It’s about avoiding triggers and staying clean. Aftercare is a big part of this.

1. Aftercare

Aftercare is a part of all our treatment programmes in Surrey. You’ll get a specific programme and access to some of our therapies. This helps to improve your chances of staying clean.

We’ll offer you full support when you need it. That’s why we include a 12-month aftercare programme in the cost of treatment. We are always here to offer guidance and support during this time.

Recovery is an ongoing journey. It’s better to think of it as a long-term project.

We recommend that you connect with others in recovery. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous provide good support.

2. Secondary Care Programme

Secondary care facilities can ease you from rehab back into the wider world.

These programmes are designed for people who have gone through detox. They are not as strict as rehab, but they still have some rules. You’ll have to stay sober, of course.

One benefit they offer is the lack of triggers that could cause a relapse. Going straight from rehab to home can be risky if you haven’t fully recovered yet.
