Addiction Help in London

Alcohol and drug addiction is a wide spread issue across the UK and is particularly bad in London. As of 2021, there were 294 deaths related to drug misuse in London, which is why it is more important than ever to seek treatment for substance addictions.

The increasing problem of addiction in England can be seen in the number of deaths from drug misuse that were registered in 2020 in England. There were unfortunately 2,830 deaths recorded which is the highest level since records began.

The good news is that there is an increasing number of people seeking treatment through a rehab facility. It has been reported that 289,215 adults were in contact with drug and alcohol services between April 2021 and March 2022, so you are not alone in seeking treatment.

Addiction recovery programmes provided by inpatient and outpatient rehab treatment centres are key elements to help you overcome addiction. Detox and addiction therapies are key elements of the recovery process in London.

If you are searching for addiction treatment in London, we can help you at our rehab centre in Watford. If you are located in Croydon, Barnet, Ealing, Barking, Newham, Brent, Bromley, Wandsworth Tower Hamlets, Southwark, or any other London borough, get in touch with us today.


Where is the Clinic Located?

We are conveniently situated on the outskirts of Watford, under 50 minutes away by train from Central London and 5 minutes from the M25. We are close to the newest train station at Watford Junction.

Our centre once made up the residence for the 1st Earl of Essex at Cassiobury estate, built in 1556, where our main living residence was once the riding stables, and later used as a hunting lodge. This building has since been converted into spacious and modern living accommodation after undergoing extensive refurbishment.

Our rehab centre is spacious and has the facilities for state-of-the-art treatments and therapies. We are located right on the doorstep of Cassiobury Park which allows us to take regular walks with residents to the scenic location, which is beneficial for both wellbeing and health reasons.

Located not far from London, our rehab centre provides top-quality treatment for people across the country suffering from addiction issues. Start your treatment today at our close-by facility.

Transportation to Rehab

If you are suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction we understand travelling to rehab can often pose a problem.

You or a loved one may be unfit to drive or may have worries about using public transport.

If you do have any issues regarding travelling to rehab for your treatment we can arrange for somebody to pick you up from your location and transport you to rehab.

This can often be the safest option as if you are suffering from an addiction and need to drive yourself, there is a chance you may still be intoxicated and could be putting yourself and others at risk.

So we will not take any chances here and will happily provide a free transport service.

Our centre is also located very near to Watford Junction train station so you can easily access treatment via train from across the country if this is a suitable transport option for you.

Whatever method you decide upon, there is always an easy transportation route to get to our rehab centre. We make sure that you are catered for and have your needs met during the admissions process, as we don’t want transportation to be the reason that a person doesn’t receive rehab treatment. You can find out more about transportation services by calling our team on 0800 001 4070.

Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment in London?

When considering drug and alcohol rehab in London, you may be weighing up whether to choose to receive treatment at an inpatient private treatment facility or an outpatient facility.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab in London
So what is the difference?

Outpatient programmes are more flexible treatment plans that do not require you to stay overnight at a hospital or rehab centre.

The programmes can pan over several weeks or months and typically include treatments and therapies such as one-to-one counselling sessions, group therapy and keywork sessions.

When considering drug and alcohol rehab in London, you may be weighing up whether to choose to receive treatment at an inpatient private treatment facility or an outpatient facility.

Inpatient Rehab London

Inpatient rehab is one of the best treatment options available to you as it provides you with intensive and thorough care to help you recover from addiction.

Cassiobury Court offers specialist treatment and therapies including group therapy, one-to-one therapy, daily walks, yoga and meditation, as well as a number of other holistic therapies. We provide you with the support you need to overcome your addiction for good.

Here at Cassiobury, we are part of a specialist group of CQC-registered drug rehab clinics that specialise in drug and alcohol misuse. We use all the best treatments and are highly experienced in helping people to make a full recovery.

Our alcohol detox clinic is one of the safest places to be whilst you undertake a detox as your body may need support as we can monitor your physical and mental health 24/7.

Residential rehab is also beneficial as it removes you from your home environment in London where there are potentially a number of triggers and risks of relapse.

Instead, private rehab provides you with a safe space to recover and relax, away from the stresses of your home life. You receive nutritional meals, catering and peer support throughout your stay, making the entire rehabilitation process easier for you.

Inpatient programmes are the best way to overcome your drug and alcohol abuse with the help of addiction specialists in private rehab. You can rest assured that you have support available to you 24/7 to get you on the road to recovery.

Benefits of inpatient rehab include:

  • 24 Hour Support
  • Medically Assisted Detoxification
  • Safe, Secure Environment
  • Relaxing Grounds and Gardens
  • On Suite Bedroom
  • Access to Fully Trained Addiction Specialists
  • Healthy Food and Set Meals

Downsides of Inpatient Rehab in London

When you join a residential rehab programme you will be expected to stay in our rehab clinic for anywhere from one to six weeks. During this time you will not be able to work or take the kids to school.

This is of course to maximise the chances of you making a full recovery but for some people, this may not be an option as they try to balance life

Outpatient Rehab London

Outpatient rehab in London provides you with local, affordable, addiction treatment. There are numerous AA and NA meetings in London which are available to you, and there are many charities that work to treat addiction.

London outpatient treatment options are good for people with milder addictions or for those who do not have the budget for private rehab facilities.

Although outpatient services are great for some people, they often have waiting lists due to high demand and are not as intensive as private rehab.

You remain within your own environment which poses the risk of relapse or triggers, and it can be hard to overcome without 24/7 support and guidance.

If you would like to learn more about inpatient and outpatient services, you can call our free addiction helpline for advice. Call on 0800 001 4070.

Drawbacks of Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient rehab is a great resource for those who have mild addictions and have responsibilities at home. However, inpatient programmes are a more intensive form of addiction treatment and the programmes are tailored to the individual.

When you begin outpatient treatment you will visit a community support group, often organised through yourself or your local GP where you may be administered medications and appointments made for you to attend counselling sessions in London.

But you will largely be going through the detoxification period in your own home and without professional support. Detox can be a very challenging process and dependent on how deep-rooted your addiction is, you can actually encounter quite severe side effects.

These side effects can be treated to an extent through prescribed medications but at home, you may not have access to the full range of drugs used to combat the worst of these withdrawal symptoms.

In addition, when you undertake outpatient treatment a major factor is that you remain in your home environment. You will still have access to drugs or alcohol as your daily routine will not change.

Negatives of Outpatient Treatment

  • No supervision through detoxification
  • Limited access to drugs that help relieve withdrawal issues
  • Lack of structure to the programme
  • You remain in your current environment
  • Waiting lists for treatment
  • Lack of

What are the Benefits of Outpatient Treatment?

As outlined above, the main benefit of outpatient treatment is its flexibility, as treatments and therapies can be carried out around busy work schedules and personal commitments.

It is also a more affordable option as outpatient services are typically free and run by the NHS. This does however mean that they are overstretched and there are often long waiting times for people waiting to receive treatment.

Outpatient rehab centres are also typically local services which makes them easily accessible and means that your treatment is less of a disruption to your everyday life.

Benefits Include

  • Treatment is free
  • You are free to go about your daily business
  • Have full access to family members

Do I Need Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation?

Identifying that you need to seek treatment for alcohol or drug abuse is a key step in the recovery journey. It is common that people don’t realise the severity of their addiction or how harmful it has become.

Some signs that you may need professional addiction treatment includes:

  • Consistently using drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences, such as problems at work, in relationships, or with the law.
  • You have built a tolerance to drugs or alcohol, meaning you need to use more of the substance to achieve the desired effect.
  • Withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit or reduce use of drugs or alcohol, such as shakes, anxiety, or vomiting.
  • Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed or a decline in personal hygiene and appearance.
  • Secretive behaviour such as lying or stealing to obtain drugs or alcohol.
  • Financial problems, such as borrowing or stealing money to buy drugs or alcohol.
  • Health issues such as chronic fatigue, weight loss, or respiratory problems.
  • Relationship problems with family and friends due to drug or alcohol use.
  • Neglecting responsibilities at home, work, or school due to drug or alcohol use.
  • Continuing to use drugs or alcohol despite wanting to quit.

If you are struggling with any of these common signs of addiction, call us today on 0800 001 4070 to learn more about alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

We can discuss your treatment options to you to help you overcome addiction in the best way for you.

Cocaine Rehab London

Cocaine is a widespread drug in our communities and London does have a share of cocaine addicts.

According to the National Office for Staistics 3.5% of adults used Cocaine in London in the year 2020. This is the highest by Region in the Uk.

Cocaine is highly addictive and is found mostly in London as either a powder which is snorted through the nostrils or as a crystallised form of cocaine known as crack, which is either smoked or injected.

Powder Cocaine

Powder cocaine is popular on the nightclub scene and people who regularly go out with friends on nights out in London may have been offered the drug on numerous occasions.

Cocaine is readily available on the London drug scene and access to cocaine is widespread in London and other large metropolitan cities.

It can become part of a night out ritual for a lot of people and due to the highly addictive nature of cocaine, lead to addiction.

People may find that what was once an occasional thing on a night out develops into a habit they take during the day and even during work hours.

Some people may start with a powder cocaine addiction and as it eats into their personal finances, resort to the cheaper crack cocaine in an attempt to keep feeling the same buzz they have become accustomed to.

Crack Cocaine London

Crack Cocaine is generally cheaper than powder cocaine and gives users a really intense high. Crack cocaine is usually smoked or heated up and injected.

Crack is really addictive and can have devastating long-term effects. Often people find themselves using crack in conjunction with other drugs such as Heroin in a drug cocktail known as Speedballing.

Speedballing Treatment in London

Of all the people needing treatment for drug abuse in the UK, speedballing was the second most common group just behind the Heroin group. This group use Crack Cocaine and Opiates such as Heroin.

The last study by the UK government projected that the following areas in London have the highest rates of opioid and crack use.

1.       Tower Hamlets

2.       Lambeth

3.       Ealing

4.       Hackney

5.       Newham

When we take a patient at our rehab clinic who is addicted to crack cocaine and heroin, we must plan their addiction treatment very carefully and unravel their addiction and any further mental health disorders.

Treatment for various drugs through the detox period will need to be prescribed to relieve withdrawal symptoms of both drugs and the patient carefully monitored throughout their stay with us.

Heroin Addiction London

Heroin addiction is the second most common drug people receive treatment for in rehab behind alcohol.

Heroin is a difficult drug to recover from as it does bring with it strong cravings and harsh withdrawal symptoms.

Heroin is injected into your body and users of heroin are also at risk of various other blood diseases due to the people sharing needles which can transmit infections from person to person.

If you are using Heroin and realise you have a problem, it is much better to get treatment at our rehab facilities from an early stage. This will also reduce the likelihood of you moving on to other forms of opiate drugs when you can not access Heroin.


How Long Does Rehab Last?

The length of rehab treatment varies depending on your budget, the severity of your addiction and your personal preferences.

We recommend a treatment programme of 28 days or more, as this provides you with enough time to have completely finished your detox and experience several therapy treatments.

If your addiction is mild, you may only need to stay in rehab for 10 days, and this will involve only a detox which will be medically assisted. This is also a good option if you have a smaller budget but require intensive treatment.

People who need to stay for longer may have been addicted to a substance for many years and require extensive therapy treatments to overcome addiction.

Some people do stay in rehab but do not give themselves enough time to achieve clarity of thought regarding their addiction. They may have visited various alcohol rehabs in the past but never truly broken through their underlying addiction.

An alcohol or drug addiction is best treated when extensive therapy has been concluded to get to the root of your issues and solutions put in place for when you get the urge to revisit the drug.

If you have found yourself visiting a rehab in the past and relapsed, it may indicate that you need a longer stay to give yourself the best chance of a long-term recovery.

This is why stays of 28 days and over are recommended, as they provide you with the best recovery rates. To get more information about our treatment programmes, call today on 0800 001 4070.

Is it Better to Stay in London for Rehab?

It is not necessarily better to stay in London compared to any other rehab around the country. Costs of rehab are similar in many private rehabs and it will not be cheaper to travel around.

One thing to consider is that Cassiobury court is based just outside London. This is an important factor if you are a London Resident.

It is in a convenient location and secluded enough so that you do not feel like you are close to the city and the temptations it may have brought in the past.

Removing yourself from your current environment is a really important factor in helping to give you the best chances of successfully completing a rehabilitation programme.

If you are close too close to your neighbourhood and usual network, it increases the chances you may relapse.

We have extensive grounds here at Cassiobury Court where you are free to catch the fresh air and refresh your body and mind in a caring environment.


What Causes Addiction?

Drug and alcohol addiction affects hundreds of thousands of people across the UK and is unfortunately a very common problem that families face. Although anybody can become addicted to substances such as cocaine, alcohol or cannabis, there are a few factors which make you more likely to experience addiction at some point in your life.

Factors that make some people more prone to addiction include:

  • Family history of addiction
  • Underlying mental health issues such as depression and anxiety
  • Biology – some people are genetically more likely to experience addiction
  • Stress
  • Childhood neglect
  • Certain personalities – some people have an addictive personality which makes them more susceptible to drug or alcohol addiction

No matter the cause of your addiction, it is important that you seek treatment at our private London rehab. Our CQC-regulated centre has years of experience treating addiction, and our staff are available 24/7 to help you throughout the entire process. We work hard to ensure that you receive the best treatment available at our private rehab and work towards your recovery with you.

Although some people are more prone to experiencing addiction, it doesn’t mean that other people are immune to drug or alcohol abuse. Even people who are conscious of famously addictive drugs such as heroin or crystal meth can be caught in the cycle of addiction to alcohol or prescription drugs.

This is why we offer drug and alcohol rehabs for people of all needs and backgrounds. Throughout the drugs and alcohol rehab process, our expert team is available to help you recover and return to your old life free from substances. To find out more about addiction, get in contact with a member of our admissions team today at 0800 001 4070.

What COVID-19 Measures Are in Place?

Private rehab clinics such as Cassiobury Court follow regulations put in place by the Care Quality Commission, (CQC), which ensures regular lateral flow testing is carried out for both staff and clients through the duration of treatment.

As part of our COVID secure admissions process, we will first require you to take an LFD rapid covid test. If the test is negative, you will then be required to take a PCR test. Once you have taken a PCR test, you will need to isolate until the results of the test come back (Up to 48 hours).

During isolation, you will be given a client pack with different Step/ CBT/ mindfulness readings and exercises as well as information on the programme and staff. Access to the smoking area is also permitted during this time.

Please speak to our admissions team for more information on our COVID-19 safety mitigations.

How Does Rehab Help People?

For many addicts, there can be an identifiable reason that has caused their addiction to develop. It might have been a hidden trauma for some people, and for others, it might be a co-existing mental health issue.

With our rehabilitation programme, we will help you better understand how your mind works and what makes you tick with the aim of discovering the root of your problem.

Quite often, getting to know yourself during this process is the eureka moment that many clients experience, and it is here when they begin to make the most progress in their recovery.

Once your medically assisted drug and alcohol detox is complete, we will guide you to assist yourself with coping mechanisms and how you can cope with co-existing mental health issues.

We have a range of rehab treatments to help with your drug and/or alcohol addiction – each treatment plan includes holistic therapy sessions to eliminate addictive behaviours. With our rehab programmes, we offer 12 months of post-rehab aftercare services to help you make a full recovery and steer you in the right direction, even after your rehab treatment programme is completed.

How Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab In London Work?

The rehab process starts as soon as you seek help. If you are on this page, there is a likelihood that you are suffering from addiction, but the steps you have made to find this page prove that you are on the path to recovery.

Alcoholism and drug addictions are diseases which you can heal from. However, many people do not seek help because their drug and alcohol use can often be normalised by friends, family and the area they inhabit.

For instance, in London, cocaine use remains the highest globally, consuming an average of 23kg of cocaine per day.

Step 1 – Admission

Before you are admitted into the centre, you will first need to undergo a clinical assessment by both our onsite doctor and nurse, who will then develop a personalised treatment programme ready for you to start.

When arriving at the centre, you will first be placed in isolation as part of our COVID-19 safety protocol. If your PCR test comes back negative, then you will again be seen by our onsite doctor, who will assess your medical needs and prescribe any medications needed during the detox phase of treatment.

After your latest medical examination, you will then be seen by your nominated addiction recovery worker, who will outline what you can expect from your personalised treatment plan.

Step 2 – Drug and Alcohol Detoxification

Detox is the process of clearing your body from harmful toxins. The toxins include traces of drugs and alcohol that are still in your system. The detoxification process is simply to abstain from drugs and alcohol until your body is fully cleansed of the substances.

A drug or alcohol detox is how the process begins. The detox process is a necessary element in the path to recovery as, over time, your brain will become dependent on the substance you are addicted to.

Drugs and alcohol push the dopamine creation in your brain, which leads to feelings of happiness and wellbeing. When you detoxify your body from a lengthy use of substances, you will often come up with withdrawal symptoms. Your brain, however, will have to readjust and rebalance.

This is often when drugs and alcohol wear out, and you feel miserable and depressed. This is because your brain is rebalancing itself. As those rebalance periods are extremely unpleasant and become worse after prolonged use, many users feel they will only feel normal again after re-using the substances.

If you have attempted to detox alone, you may have had these feelings or symptoms already, and without medical assistance, they can become unbearable and dangerous, which is why so many people relapse when going it alone.

This is one of the biggest strengths of detoxing with a rehab provider. At Cassiobury Court, we provide medically induced detox programmes completely tailored to be safely administered at our centre. A “one size fits all” approach simply does not work.

That is why, as soon as we have an understanding of the severity of your addiction, our medical team will provide tailored prescription medicine to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms. You can also opt for a detox alone, so if you are looking for a drug and alcohol detox in London, get in touch with us and assist you.

Step 3 – Therapy & Psychological Treatments

Therapy is the most enjoyable part of the transformative journey for many in recovery. At Cassiobury, we provide both individual and group sessions and offer many different therapies that help overcome your addiction.

We offer both traditional and holistic therapies to ensure that all of our residents receive extensive care. Each of the therapies that we administer here at Cassiobury is backed by research and data on their effectiveness.

Our Psychological Therapies include:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy is a technique used to help people overcome substance abuse issues by gaining control over their emotions.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is a psychological technique for treating addictions, depression and anxiety by looking at the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

  • 12 Steps of Recovery

The 12-Step programme is a treatment tool to help people understand the journey into, during, and after recovery. The 12 steps are an essential part of helping people recover from addiction by changing their thoughts and perceptions.

  • One-to-One Keyworking

This involves one-to-one meetings with your nominated addiction support worker, allowing for more personal discussions that individuals may be unwilling to open up about in a group setting.

  • Wellbeing Group Therapy & Meditation Sessions

Meditation and Group therapy sessions to promote wellbeing and mindfulness are regularly carried out to help manage anxiety throughout the rehab process.

  • Creative & Drama Therapies

Creative and drama therapies are a powerful way of reducing stress, managing behaviour’s, achieving clarity and insight, developing interpersonal skills, and increasing self-esteem.

  • Art Therapy

Art therapy is a form of expression that helps people in recovery visualise their thoughts and emotions as a means of relieving stress.

  • Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA) and Narcotic Anonymous (NA) Support Meetings

Clients are encouraged to take part in Alcoholic Anonymous (AA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA) and Narcotic Anonymous (NA) via Zoom in the evenings during their rehab stay.

  • AcuDetox

AcuDetox is an alternative form of acupuncture that focuses on five points in the ear. The procedure has been found to be effective in providing relief from specific symptoms and is used to treat addiction, trauma, and stress.

  • Body Scan Meditation

The body scan is a simple meditation exercise that trains the mind to be more open and aware of sensory experiences, which will result in greater acceptance of your physical self.

Along with the above, we also provide social activities that help you enjoy your time at Cassiobury Court and accelerate the rehabilitation process. These activities include daily group walks, quiz nights, team games & film nights, fellowship events and family visits.

We try to ensure that your experience here is as akin to your daily life as possible, so we can also provide additional services on request and for an additional charge, such as Hair & Beauty Sessions, Manicure, Pedicure, etc., Chiropody & Podiatry, Dentistry, Optician and Full Body Massage.

We can offer these services at our drug and alcohol rehab centre in London, which will be individually chargeable.

Step 4 – Aftercare and Relapse Prevention

Upon competition of drug and alcohol rehab in London, you will receive 12 months of free aftercare with regular meetings taking place via zoom every Monday. The aftercare meetings are designed to help keep you in touch with your addiction recovery workers and discuss any issues faced when returning to normal life.

Aftercare is an essential tool in helping you stay on track by giving you access to invaluable support long after treatment has been completed.

Along with 12 months of free aftercare, we also recommend that you attend regular AA, NA or CA support meetings which will give you much-needed additional support.

How Can You Make Withdrawal More Bearable?

One sure sign of drug or alcohol addiction is the occurrence of withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to beat your addiction. The withdrawal symptoms that are experienced can vary between substances, but the common theme is intense discomfort which threatens relapse.

Our medical recovery team and addiction specialist are available to prescribe you with prescription medication which can help to alleviate your symptoms during the detox process. This will help you to manage painful withdrawal symptoms and also provides you with the support and care that you need during this process.

By choosing to receive your addiction treatment at inpatient rehab, you will have access to all of the support you need. It is the safest and most bearable facility to go through withdrawal and is recommended by doctors.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

At Cassiobury Court, we understand the relationship that commonly exists between mental health and addiction, which is why we offer dual diagnosis treatment options.

If you are suffering from co-occurring drug or alcohol addiction as well as a mental health disorder, we can provide you with treatment which will target both elements of your health problem.

Talking therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy have been proven to be extremely helpful in treating both addiction and mental health. It helps you to address your problems and reevaluate the way you think about them. Group therapy and support groups are other commonly used addiction treatments in London alcohol rehab centres as they help you to discuss your feelings with people going through similar experiences.

Dialectical behavioural therapy is also commonly used in our treatment programmes to ensure that all aspects of your addiction are treated.

It is extremely important that all elements of the body are treated when somebody struggles with addiction, especially if they have a mental health condition too. This is why the team at Cassiobury Court uses only evidence-based addiction treatments to help those with dual diagnosis to recover.

Even for those who do not have a pre-existing mental health condition, addiction often takes a huge toll on your mental health, relationships and general headspace. Addiction therapies are incredibly important elements of any private rehab programme and are a large reason why residential rehab clinics have such high success rates in comparison to other outpatient options.

The Importance of Aftercare in Addiction Recovery

Recovery after time spent in residential alcohol rehab is key to maintaining long term sobriety. The first few months after your rehab programme in London has ended is known to be the most difficult.

This is due to a number of reasons, such as returning to your home environment which may be triggering to your recovery, or the sudden lack of 24/7 support from medical professionals which you receive in a drug and alcohol clinic.

This is why we provide one year of free aftercare to help you remain on track. These sessions take place weekly so you can experience the continued support provided by the team at Cassiobury Court.

We also recommend that you seek outpatient treatment services in London to help with your recovery.

To achieve long term recovery after your alcohol and drug rehabilitation programme with us, please get in touch today.

How Can I Convince a Loved One to Receive Drug and Alcohol Rehab in London?

It’s important not to get discouraged when dealing with a loved one who suffers from a substance misuse disorder. While it may seem like there are no easy ways to help them, you can start by taking small steps which could put your family member on the road to recovery.

When talking to someone dealing with addiction, it’s important that you are not judgmental and are engaging in a two-way conversation. An honest message without threatening the person with change will likely help more than anything else in recovery since addicts tend to make the decision of seeking help on their own accord.

If you have exhausted all attempts to convince your loved one to get help, then there is an option that we provide in the form of an intervention programme for family members.

We are not able to force someone into receiving alcohol or drug rehab. The decision must be there of their own choice.

Intervention is a powerful tool that is designed to help overcome this barrier. We offer a family intervention service which arranges an opportunity for families and friends to work with our addiction recovery experts to find the best way to convince your loved one to receive the help they need.

Once a plan has been created, a meeting between the addict, their loved ones and our addiction recovery worker will be arranged with the aim of getting your loved one to agree to enter rehab. If an agreement can be reached, then your loved one will be taken straight to our rehab facility to start treatment as soon as possible.

This approach is seen as the most effective way to get reluctant loved ones to accept treatment with very high success rates.

Family Referral Service

It can be extremely frustrating if you have a loved one who does not want to receive treatment for their addiction or are in denial about the severity of their substance abuse disorder. Although you are not able to force somebody else into rehab, there are a number of resources that you can use from private rehab centres to help get your loved one on the road to recovery.

At Cassiobury Court we offer a family referral service to help family members seek resources and support from our experienced admissions team and recovery workers. We can help you to better understand addiction and learn techniques to manage it healthily.

Some of the things we can help you with include:

  • Support and advise you on how to talk about addiction openly with your loved one
  • Provide you with updates on resident’s welfare and improvements if they join rehab
  • Option of a family intervention service with a member of our trained addiction therapist
  • Suggest techniques to help support those going through addiction
  • Answer questions that you have about rehab treatment and what we offer
  • Discuss your budget and requirements to help your loved one

Private rehabilitation is the best way to make a recovery from addiction and treatment often makes a huge difference to the quality of life of our residents. If you would like to find out more about our family referral service, contact our admissions team for a chat on 0800 001 4070.

What Are The Benefits Of Receiving Immediate Addiction Treatment?

For some clients, the aim to find free NHS addiction services based at a London located hospital will be set.

This route to addiction treatment is, of course, cost-effective. However, as demands grow across the city for leading addiction treatment, therapies will become inconsistent. Likewise, a large waiting list will probably be formed, delaying your chances of recovery.

By considering a private rehab facility, you will have access to both support and addiction treatments immediately, helping to start your recovery as soon as you enquire. This efficiency level can set you up for greater recovery, reducing any drug and alcohol temptations to back out in the meantime.

Get in touch with our team today to arrange your drug and alcohol detox here at our London centre.

Many rehab centres in the country can be of help. Depending on your situation, you can either go to an NHS service or a private clinic. We recommend an inpatient treatment centre, as inpatient treatment often tends to be a lot more effective in the short and long term.

At Cassiobury Court, we offer a 28-day inpatient treatment programme. We have an intake process that is quick and efficient, with only one phone call, you can get arrange for admission into our rehab clinic in London.

Receving rehab treatment is the right choice if you feel drug and/or alcohol is negatively impacting your life.

Rehab offers a safe haven for anyone struggling with a dependency on harmful substances like drugs and alcohol. With recovery staff on hand most of the day and other individuals going through similar journeys offering support, you will not feel alone when receiving rehab treatment at an inpatient facility like Cassiobury Court.

Many people suffering from addiction choose to opt for private rehabilitation. There are many benefits in choosing a private rehab, including the fact that admission can often be organised within 24 hours.

Cassiobury Court is a private drug and alcohol rehab facility based in London. Our professionals provide only the best care for long-term recovery. During the detox phase of treatment, you will be closely monitored by our professionals. You will also benefit from a range of group and one-on-one therapies to help work through underlying mental and emotional triggers.

There are various options for you to consider when undertaking a rehabilitation programme. These options are based on your own personal preferences as well as the severity of your addiction. However, the main guidelines are the same in most situations. The first step is often detox and what follows is a mix of holistic and mainstream therapy to ensure you will stay clean in the time after your rehab treatment.

Medication can be used as an alternative or a supplement to your already existing rehab treatment.

Detox is often seen as the hardest part of getting clean. This is a process where you withdraw from drugs and/or alcohol with trained medical professionals. You might wonder why you need to do that in such an environment. The answer is quite simple. Detoxifying at home is extremely dangerous.

When you start detoxifying, you might come across some withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms or the severity do tend to vary depending on the severity/longevity of the addiction. If you suffer from severe alcoholism, the risk of lasting damage and death during the withdrawal period does exist.

At our Greater London based Clinic, we employ a competent team of professionals who can supervise you at all time during the detox stages.

Of course, there is always a chance of relapse, the chances of that happening are slim, but we need you to be fully behind our program. The relapse rate is meagre when it comes to our residential rehab service.

We have a proven aftercare and relapse prevention programme, which will be put in place upon the completion of rehabilitation. Call our Admissions team today, and they will be able to help you become the best you again.

Besides drug and alcohol rehab in London, we also treat a range of mental health disorders and behavioural addictions as co-occurring disorder. This is only if addiction is determined to be the contributing factor to your mental condition, which will be determined by our psychiatrist.

Mental health disorders include obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression.

Typical behavioural disorders we treat include gambling addiction, eating addiction and sex addiction.
