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.
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.
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.

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.
People We Have Helped Overcome 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.
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.
