Drug and Alcohol Rehab Cambridge

According to Public Health England, a massive 79% of people in Cambridgeshire who currently need treatment for drug or alcohol abuse have these needs unmet.

Here we will provide you with more information about how drug and alcohol rehabilitation works and how to get treatment.

It is possible to stop taking substances without support, but your chances of successfully ending your addiction are much higher with professional help. It is also far safer for your health, as giving up drugs and alcohol quickly can present a serious medical risk.


Local Addiction Support in Cambridgeshire

Most people are referred to a local rehab clinic by a GP in Cambridge. These services are often free and provided by NHS local services on an outpatient basis.

Others choose to research local centres themselves by Googling “drug and alcohol rehab near me”. Some employers are also willing to help by using their private medical health insurance policies to fund private treatment.


Outpatient Treatment

Most free services available through the NHS are administered as an outpatient. This means you will visit a centre for drug substitution and therapy, but recovery will largely be attempted at home with the help of friends, family and other community resources.

If you have tried this approach and keep relapsing or have failed to keep up with the programme, the next more intensive option is a prolonged stay in a dedicated rehab centre.


Residential Rehab

In our residential rehab you will live here for a period of weeks. Here you will not have access to drugs or alcohol and be fully monitored through a detoxification period. After this, you will complete a range of therapies that reduce relapse rates and help you clear your mind after what could potentially be years of substance abuse.

Our Cambridge rehabilitation centre is here to support you around the clock every day of the year. Our team of committed rehab professionals can help you start a new life free from addiction.

To find out more about how our drug rehab centre team can support you, call our Cambridge clinic in total confidence or leave your detail in our contact form.


Inside Our Rehab

When you stay in our CQC rehab centre you will benefit from 24/7 support from Doctors, Mental Health Specialists, Counsellors, Support Workers and even an onsite chef.


Drugs Addictions We Treat

We treat all kinds of drug addictions in our rehab centre and have a very experienced team to deal with the destabilising nature addiction can have on both your physical and mental health. Our rehab treats all common addictions such as Alcohol and cocaine addiction in additional Heroin, Cannabis, Crytal Meth and Prescription drug addictions.


Alcohol Addiction Treatment

A large proportion of our visitors are suffering from Alcohol dependency. Our team understand the challenges you face and the difficulties going through withdrawal from such an addictive substance.

Many people who regularly join our group sessions are recovering alcoholics, and you will hear stories and also learn from your peers how they have effectively managed to overcome alcohol addiction.

The most significant benefit of completing your alcohol rehabilitation in our centre is due to the detox period. Alcohol can have a very challenging detox period with nasty side effects such as sickness, delirium, tremors and often leave people psychologically in an awful state.

We will be here to support you with counselling and medication through this period. You will also be under complete observation as we help guide you through this period.


Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine is highly addictive, and many of our patients do need rehab treatment as the chances of relapse are incredibly high, especially if you are surrounded by cocaine through your network of friends in the community.

Cocaine addiction brings a strong psychological response, and it can be beaten with the help of our onsite mental health specialists. We tailor rehab programmes based on each individual as each person has their own story. What might be beneficial for others might not be best for you.

In treating cocaine addiction, your detox period will also be accompanied by intensive therapy from trained psychologists with a proven record of helping people overcome cocaine addiction. As a QCC-registered facility, we provide the best care for people looking to overcome addiction to such drugs as cocaine.

I spent 2 weeks at Cassiobury, really think it might have saved my life, Jane walked me in on the first day and told me I wouldn't want to leave by the end of it, she wasn't wrong. Every member of staff were amazing and so supportive. Having had two not so good experiences at other rehabs I was very nervous and in a really bad way, at my worst point in drinking ever and thinking there was no way out, but now I feel better than I have in 4 years :) so apprecitive to literally everyone there, so welcoming and understanding. The food is amazing too, and will cater to your needs, felt so looked after and genuinely cared for, will forever be grateful for this experience x

Going for an experience of rehabilitation can be an extremely daunting one. Most people arrive broken, emotionally, financially and spiritually bankrupt; and most of all, they feel alone. My experience at Cassiobury Court exceeded all my wildest expectations. Immediately, I was swept up in a system of support, understanding and care. The staff was incredible - professional yet loving. The sessions there provided me with a solid foundation and understanding of my issues, leaving me equipped to deal with the outside world upon my discharge. The environment inside was like family where close ties were soon formed with no judgements being passed and only mutual care being cultivated. It was one of the most enriching experiences of my life and I am so grateful for having had this opportunity to pause my life and work on my well being towards a more wholesome future. If you’re needing help, this place is the best choice. You’ll be in great hands, highly recommended!

Cassiobury Court is a Unique Rehabilitation Facility I can’t thank the team at Cassiobury Court enough for their support through one of the lowest points of my life. From the management down to the recovery team, therapists, catering team, medical team, maintenance team and housekeepers. They all go above and beyond for the people in their care. Many of the staff members have personally been affected by addiction, so understand how it feels like to be at your lowest most broken point in life. It’s especially helpful for people going through their first rehab where they are gently led to understand their addiction and supported by a team of therapists. For anyone whose unfortunate enough to have had a relapse, they welcome you back without judgement and it’s like seeing old friends. The catering team are fantastic and will accommodate any dietary requirements. They have a simple aim - to nourish you back to health. The full English breakfast, regular roasts, salad bars, snacks and late night sandwiches are to die for. You can talk to the recovery team at anytime of the day, even if its just for a hug or reassurance. I know I've needed a hug on a couple of occasions. The experience at Cassiobury is very intimate, with around 25 guests at anytime all of whom quickly become a community providing support and will quickly climatise and welcome any newcomers. They too were anxious and confused when they first arrived. The internet and wifi has excellent coverage and it’s great to have Netflix available in your bedroom. You can also use your phone as long as your respectful of others. I’d like to especially thank Rebecca for her helping me at my most vulnerable and for her aftercare plan. I’d also like to make a shout out to Martin whose recovery sessions and general advice are always on point. Ollie for his super charged sessions and a Pauli for his breath coaching. Oh and you also get 12 months of aftercare with a weekly midday zoom call... I will end this by saying that with any rehab, you get what you put in. Go in with an open mind and use the time their to reset your life and deal with any demons from the past. Be truthful and honest with your piers and leave the past behind at Cassiobury Court. Then walk out of the gates to your new life. I wish you well in your recovery journey. Mr NA - West London

I was admitted to Cassiobury Court on Tuesday 3rd January 2023 for a 28 day period, suffering from alcohol addition. Having not been in rehab previously, I was unsure what to expect, Cassiobury Court provides detoxification, group sessions/discussions and 1-2-1's to its Clients in a relaxed atmosphere whilst also encouraging the completion of the 1st 3 steps from the AA 12 step programme. Anyway, everyone was very welcoming and I spent the 1st few days in the detoxification process, in which my sleep and appetite returned. I also felt very comfortable and had no compulsion to drink alcohol. From the start of the following week, I started attending the group sessions and numerous 1-2-1 sessions with counsellors, key workers or therapists. I have found everyone at Cassiobury Court, management, counsellors, key workers, medical staff, chefs and cleaning staff to be excellent n being very welcoming, enthusiastic and approachable at any time, with an effort on our recovery. The group therapy is excellent and the fellow clients support each other in recovery. The accommodation is excellent and the food (breakfast, lunch, dinner with late night sandwiches) are also excellent. You can get hot drinks, a range including water, teas, herbal teas, coffee and hot chocolate and yoghurts, fruit and biscuits, 24 hours/day. They offer an excellent weekly laundry service where your clothes are returned clean and folded within a few hours. Also, they provide a 12 month support service which involve weekly Zoom meetings. I left on Tuesday 31st January 2023 , in a much better place having competed the 1st 3 AA steps, and willing and ready to follow the AA 12 Step Programme. I would highly recommend Cassiobury Court to anyone who is looking for a alcohol or drug rehabilitation service. Finally, a big thank you, to all the staff at Cassiobury Court..

I have spent some time at Cassiobury Court over the last 6 months and cannot speak more highly of the experience. I admitted myself for alcohol addiction and was very scared when I arrived and did not have any idea what to expect. The staff could not have been kinder to me. I wanted to leave on day 2 because I was very anxious and out of my comfort zone, but fortunately staff members calmed me down and I ended up staying which I am very glad about. The schedule is very good with group sessions, some one on one sessions and therapy sessions. The food is excellent and the chefs are very accommodating if you wish to have something different. There is a daily trip to the local shop to get any bits you may need. All the staff are amazing, the recovery workers, the management, the chefs and kitchen staff and all that work at Cassiobury are all so caring and it really shows. You have time to get to know the rest of the group and I ended up building close bonds and have kept in contact with many that I met in Cassiobury (and I bump into people I met at meetings outside as well as on the aftercare calls). All in all, if your are considering a treatment centre then I would highly recommend Cassiobury Court, I am very grateful for my time there.

Just completed 28 days at Cassiobury Court and I am pleased to say it has been a positive experience. I have received compassionate expert care from the staff team here who have an in-depth knowledge of addiction. My key workers have been an inspiration and have been by my side every step of the way providing a range of interventions to help me work through my addiction issues. I have been treated with kindness, privacy, dignity and respect. I leave having gained confidence and the power to succeed. Thank you to all at Cassiobury court.

I came here on January 2023. I was consumed by an alcohol addiction. I was at an all time low. Family and friends found this place for me, this was my first treatment. I felt very welcome upon entering the gates. All staff took great care of me.I was given a medical detox this made the start of the stay here very comfortable. I stayed here for 28 days and was given one on one therapy treatment, group sessions and external recovery meetings. The staff are very understanding and fair. I was given the tools and a brilliant foundation to achieve my goal with great support. Whilst staying here I started to realise there is light at the end of the tunnel to live in a positive and rewarding life if I keep myself focused. I am grateful for to have been here. My advice would be to take the first steps to get the help you need.
Where do I even start… This has been my second time in there as a year ago when I was there, I didn’t take the program seriously enough and I just wanted to get clean from drugs. However after having a few months sobriety, then relapsing as I didn’t do what was suggest to me! I ended up going back for 28 days. Let me tell you, that this experience was a one in a lifetime and I took everything on board, attended all sessions and did exactly what I was told! Every single member of staff at cassiobury go above and beyond for their clients. They put time and effort into all of us and someone is always there for you to talk to day or night. There is a huge range of sessions which you can attend and this give you the knowledge of your addiction. You also have counselling sessions once a week which helps massively🙏🏼 Cassiobury court feels like your home with your family. Leaving today was so tough as I left so many amazing people behind there. However this is the new start of my journey, I have the right tools behind me this time and I would never of been able to do it without cassiobury. Also big up the chiefs there! The food is AMAZING!!!!! I put on over a stone in 4 weeks…I think that says it all! Thank you cassiobury for giving me a new and improved way of living.

When I came in to Cassiobury I was all over the place my life was in chaos caused by me. I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived, I had been in another rehab before. I didn’t have a good experience there unfortunately. At Cassiobury I made the effort to be around everyone and learn, taking part in everything which is the only way to learn. The thing I really love about Cassiobury are staff who are in recovery themselves which is amazing - they point you in the right direction from their own experiences which has made all the difference to me. It’s been massive for me. You know when you are talking to staff they have done it themselves. Every single staff have been brilliant, they have different approaches and which has been the best therapy for me as they understand what I’ve been going through. I felt safe at Cassiobury which gave me a sense of relief and helped me to relax, release my anxieties and fears focusing on what I needed to do - from feeling broken I feel repaired. I cannot fully express what this is done for me. I can’t fault this place from the top to the cleaners. I leave Cassiobury with more understanding about addiction than I’ve ever had. I’ve got the tools I need which gives me the courage to remain sober. My loved one found this place and I’m so grateful that she did! She made a huge effort for me. You will get everything you need if you want it - don’t waste the opportunity. For me Cassiobury court will work for you but you need to work for yourself while you’re there - you won’t regret it.


How Can I tell if I’m Living With an Addiction?

Am I living with a drug addiction? The fact that you are here now shows you are willing to make a change and this is a very good sign. It’s also important to understand that drug addiction is an illness, not something you have chosen or should feel guilty about.

Drugs are chemically formulated to get you hooked and this is the reason why so many people ask for support with drug addiction. You are not alone.

Drugs have an incredibly powerful effect on the way our bodies and brains function. Over time, people can become so physically and emotionally dependent on drugs that attempting to stop can produce unbearable symptoms.

The only way to feel better is to take the drug again to overcome the withdrawal symptoms.

By this point, a patient has become addicted. Taking the drug they’ve been experiencing violent physical cravings for instantly makes them feel comfortable and euphoric and this is why it is such a hard habit to break.

Pros and Cons of Private Rehab

  • Intensive form of addiction treatment
  • High recovery rates
  • Aftercare support
  • 24/7 support in luxury facilities
  • Treatment programmes can be expensive
  • Rehab may not be in local area
  • May need to take time off work
  • Time away from family and friends

How Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Cambridge Work?

You’re probably wondering exactly what happens in a Cambridge rehab centre. The very first thing you need to know is that it’s going to be demanding, both physically and emotionally, and you need to be ready to commit to giving up no matter how hard you find it.

When you join us here at our Cambridge clinic, you will be required to stay residentially for 28 days. During that period, you will undertake an Alcohol detox program which can take up to two weeks, depending on how severe your substance addiction has become.

At no point during this process should you take drugs because the only way your recovery can happen is if they are completely out of your system.

This stage of the process is extremely challenging and you will need 24/7 supervision by our medical team here in Cambridge. To ease the pain of your withdrawal, they may offer you prescription medication.

This is just the start of your road to recovery. Following the Detox phase, you will be able to receive support from us for as long as you need it – both residentially here at our Cambridge clinic and after you return home.

Our aim is to help you become permanently drug or alcohol free so we will teach you a range of coping strategies to help you deal with life without ever needing to take drugs again.


How Long are Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs?

Although your rehab program will start with a 28 day residential with our team here in Cambridge, that’s only the start. So, how long does drug rehab last?

This is actually a difficult question to answer because it all depends on the individual. Drug addiction therapy is always person-centred so what works quickly for one person might take longer for another.

As our treatment is inpatient, and takes 28 days, we advise you to let your close family members and friends know that you might be unavailable for a while. Arranging some time off with your employer is important too.

Once you are ready to, we can pick you up from your home in Cambridge, and transport you to our facilities in Watford.



Is There Free Help for Addiction?

Yes, if private rehab isn’t for you, don’t worry, you won’t be left to fight the battle alone there are certainly other routes to get the help you need. Two of the most common and popular meetings are DA and AA meetings, below you can find ones local to you in Cambridge.

Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings in Cambridge

Downing Place United Reformed Church, Downing St
CB2 3EL (wheelchair access available & 1 hour meetings are held according to schedule.)

Narcotics Anonymous Meetings in Cambridge

Edge Cafe
Mill Road, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
CB1 3DF (wheelchair access available & 1 hour meetings are held according to schedule.)

Seeking Help for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

Do you live near or in Cambridge? Do you currently feel it is going that way in your personal life, but you cannot stop? You might be suffering from an addiction.

Luckily, at Cassiobury Court, we offer rehab for those that live near the city of Cambridge, in the County Cambridgeshire or even in nearby areas.

We can help you get clean, just give us a call and we’ll be ready to assist.


Many people ask us, “Is rehab free?” Unfortunately, it isn’t however there are several private health insurance policies that will pay out on drug rehab so it’s a good idea to speak to your employer or insurance company to see if you are covered. The policy may pay for treatment here at our Cambridge clinic.

Many patients ask us “How much is rehab in Cambridge?” when they first come to see us. Even if you think the cost is beyond your reach, it’s important that you talk to us because we might be able to signpost you to another service who can help.

The UK does not have any specific NHS drug and alcohol rehab clinics. When an NHS patient is referred for addiction treatment, it is to a private clinic like ours in Cambridge. Please be aware that NHS waiting lists are very long, and the criteria is very strict so there is no guarantee you will be seen.

Of course. Our drug and alcohol rehab team here in Cambridge will always treat your case with absolute confidentiality and respect your privacy.
