Drug and Alcohol Rehab Cambridge
Are you worried that substances are taking over your life? Do you want to stop taking drugs and alcohol but you don’t know where to start?
If you’re keen to find out what happens in drug rehab, searching for help and support in Cambridge is a great place to start.
Our site will provide you with more information about how drug and alcohol rehabilitation works.
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.
Drug and alcohol rehab in the UK is among the very best in the world, combining a range of different tools and treatments to help patients free themselves from addiction.
Most people are referred to a local rehab clinic by a GP but it can take a very long time before treatment becomes available this way.
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.
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.

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.
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.
At Cassiobury Court, we have the resources and knowledge available to us to ensure you have the best possible rehab plan available to you to get rid of your drug or alcohol addiction.
These frequently asked questions may be able to assist you, before making contact.
Is drug and alcohol rehab covered by health insurance? How much do rehabs cost?
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.
I can’t afford rehab – I don’t have insurance. What can I do?
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.
Is drug or alcohol rehab on the NHS?
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.
Is your rehab private and confidential?
Of course. Our drug and alcohol rehab team here in Cambridge will always treat your case with absolute confidentiality and respect your privacy.
Does drug rehab for teens work?
Many young people in Cambridge and throughout the UK are enrolled into drug rehab for teens programs each year. Often, the same techniques used for adults are just as successful with teenagers.
