Drug and Alcohol Rehab Erith
Rehab Options in Erith
Being so close to Central London and just 13 miles from the likes of Charring Cross means that there are several rehabilitation centres to Erith. What’s more, our leading facility is only an hour away in Watford and is the perfect place to reset, recover and rest.
You might prefer to stay closer to home for addiction treatment but just consider what it will be like to be surrounded by familiar temptations and distractions. At Cassiobury Court, we offer inpatient treatment and 24/7 support to help you to get your life back on track. Inpatient treatment also offers the best chance of long-term success and recovery.
Outpatient Treatment in Erith
There are two different types of rehab treatment in the UK. As we’ve mentioned, inpatient treatment is where patients attend an alcohol or drug rehab centre, receive treatment and must stay at the clinic for the whole period of the programme which is usually one month. Under this type of treatment, patients receive unlimited support.
Outpatient treatment is also available but after receiving treatment at a clinic, patients return home to recover. While this is a great option for those who have additional responsibilities such as childcare, it can create a number of obstacles. Namely, drugs and alcohol are more readily available and patients are returning to areas which may trigger their addictive behaviours.
The NHS does offer outpatient treatment but rarely is inpatient treatment funded. For this reason, inpatient treatment is often more expensive but there are varying programmes ranging in duration and cost.
While there are differences between inpatient and outpatient treatment, the aim is the same: to treat physical addictions with a medically-assisted detox and then to treat any behavioural symptoms and psychological triggers using a range of talking and creative therapy. There will also be a focus on aftercare and relapse prevention.
Finding a GP in Erith
If you are ready to access addiction recovery treatment, the easiest way to start the process is to get in touch with your GP. In Erith, there are several different GP services including Bexley Medical Group, Riverside Surgery and Northumberland Health Medical Centre.
You do need to be registered but by booking an appointment with your GP they can assess your symptoms, provide any medication and also make the first referral to a rehabilitation provider. They will also be able to advise on any local support groups.
Alternatively, if you’re ready to kickstart the application process at Cassiobury Court, then you can get in touch with our friendly team. For friends, family members and employers, we also offer an intervention service to get your loved ones the help they need.
Local support groups are an essential part of any recovery, whatever stage you’re at, and whether you’re an inpatient or outpatient. Not only do they give you regular and necessary support but it’s a great way to meet like-minded people who know exactly what you’re going through. It can also provide structure to your day and can help you to stay accountable.
There are both Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous meetings in Erith as well as the surrounding areas like Dartford, Bexleyheath and Welling.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab at Cassiobury Court
At Cassiobury Court, we treat alcohol addiction and a range of drug addictions including cocaine addiction, opiate addiction, cannabis addiction and sleeping pill addiction. For anyone that does consider themself to be dependent, we recommend an inpatient stay to provide the necessary respite. This is also a more intensive form of rehab and includes a medically-assisted drug and alcohol detox.
When you arrive at our addiction treatment centre in Watford, your mental and physical state will be assessed. You’ll then begin the detox process which is where the drugs or alcohol leave your body. It’s completely normal to experience cravings and withdrawal symptoms like shaking, sweating, stomach cramps and flu-like symptoms.
However, these can become more severe and can include hallucinations and seizures. One of the best things about a medically-assisted detox is that you’ll be supported and monitored throughout the process and doctors can prescribe drugs to ease any side effects.
Once you’ve completed this, you can begin a treatment plan that includes group and individual sessions, talking therapy and creative therapy. We also encourage you to take part in our well-being activities to help you to create a healthier lifestyle. Friends and family are also allowed to visit as we feel this provides you with a level of support and allows them to understand how they can fit into your recovery.
At Cassiobury Court, all our patients are with us on an inpatient basis. This means that you’ll get a private room with wash facilities and all meals are taken care of. While you might be worried about leaving your home in Erith, an inpatient stay with us will give you the best chance of getting better, now and in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions
Any condition such as drug addiction, alcohol addiction, cocaine addiction, or cannabis addiction will affect every individual differently. However, there are some common signs to look out for which will indicate that you need to seek professional support immediately. These include frequent mood swings, always feeling tired, unable to say no to the substance, being dishonest, appearing pale and unwell, consuming more alcohol or drugs to feel a stronger high/intoxication, and being less interested in activities or socialisation.
Our drug and alcohol rehab has experienced a very high recovery rate over the years. The majority of our clients who have undergone residential rehab with us have gone on to continue their recovery journeys at home, relapse-free. We strive to give you the most effective treatment programme possible by personalising the therapies to suit your unique needs and maintaining motivation throughout your addiction treatment. We also help you to build a strong support system and plan for many eventualities so that you’re always supported.
This can vary depending on the severity of your drug or alcohol addiction and which treatments you require. However, residential rehab typically takes around 28 days to complete, which is then followed by a structured aftercare plan for 12 months.
