Drug and Alcohol Rehab Northfleet
Do I Need to go to Rehab?
People with drug or alcohol addiction often struggle to come to terms with the fact that they have an addiction or require help. However, this is an essential step if you want to recover long-term. Unfortunately, there isn’t a set of symptoms that indicate you have an addiction or mean you need to go to drug or alcohol rehab. However, if you’re on this page or questioning your drug and alcohol usage, you might benefit from professional help. Other patterns and behaviours where rehab could help include:
- Wanting to stop taking drugs and alcohol but not being able to
- Having withdrawal symptoms and cravings without drugs and alcohol
- Continuing using them despite health effects
- Struggling to maintain relationships and jobs because of drugs and alcohol
Even if you don’t feel like rehab is for you, the team at Cassiobury Court will listen to you and your concerns. We can answer your questions, uncover your fears and outline exactly what options there are.
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatments
Addiction isn’t one-size-fits-all, and neither is rehab. Some centres will focus on certain addictions; others will have specialist teams for mental health conditions. That’s why it’s so important to look at a range of addiction recovery centres to find the right one for you.
When you get in touch with our team, we’ll ask questions to understand you and your addiction better. This is so we can find the best programme for you and also help us tailor your rehabilitation once you’re here.
Again, while every rehab centre is different, the main aim is usually the same – to treat the physical addiction, uncover the emotional triggers and help you to find better lifestyle choices. This is done via a combination of treatments and therapies which have been used for many years. Some will be more suitable for you than others, and it’s important to be open to new approaches.
At Cassiobury Court, we use a range of behavioural and psychological therapies and well-being activities. You’re also supported to complete a medically safe detox, and family members will be encouraged to attend visits and group therapy sessions. This is because we feel it provides you with essential support and gives them the knowledge and skills to support your recovery.
Why Choose Private Rehab
There are two main types of rehab in the UK – inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient, also called private residential rehab, is where patients stay on-site for the whole time they are being treated. Outpatient treatment means patients return home in the evening. Many studies show that inpatient treatment has a higher success rate and a better chance of long-term recovery – despite people being concerned about being away from home.
Other benefits of private inpatient rehab include:
- 24/7 access to medical support and facilities
- Private accommodation away from influences
- A safe and supportive environment for detoxification
- Extra-curricular activities
- Necessary respite
- Meals and laundry are taken care of so you can fully focus on your recovery
Like other health settings, private rehab centres also have better facilities than public rehab centres. Waiting lists are also usually shorter, but private rehab is not yet available on the NHS.
Typically, only outpatient rehab is available on the NHS. However, we understand that not everyone can afford inpatient private rehab. Our team would still love to hear from you and may be able to discuss shorter stays or programmes that meet your needs.
Our Admissions Process
The idea of rehab can be really scary. After all, it’s likely that you’ll leave home for a bit, and the thought of the unknown can be tough. We understand what you’re going through; remember, many of our team members have been through the same thing. That’s why we ensure your contact with us and the overall admissions process is as simple and stress-free as possible.
To start things off, you just need to get in touch with us – whether it’s you, a family member or even a worried employer. After the initial chat is complete, we have all the information we need and your questions are answered; we can put together some suggestions for treatment. It’s then time for a pre-assessment medical screening which determines how suitable you are for rehab and gives us a better idea of your mental health.
Once we’ve agreed on an action plan, we just need a small deposit to secure your place, and then an admissions date will be set. If you have any questions before you arrive, our team is always on the other side of a phone call or message.
On the day of admission, you’ll meet everyone who will be looking after you and be shown to your private room. Don’t worry if you feel scared, angry, confused or overwhelmed. We are here for you; you’ll never be alone at Cassiobury Court.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drug and Alcohol Rehab
While private residential rehabilitation is a more expensive treatment option than most others, you also get the best possible quality of care. The best way to find out how much our treatments are is to call our admissions team, as we offer many different packages which accommodate different budgets. When it comes to addiction treatment, you really cannot afford to choose any other than the best quality of care.
While we can help people to break free from the cycle of addiction, the threat of relapsing will sadly always be there. However, through our relapse prevention planning and complimentary aftercare programme, you can keep the prospect of relapse at bay. Relapsing is a threat you learn to manage and avoid, meaning many successful recovering addicts never relapse.
Approaching someone about their addiction is a very delicate issue. If you do not approach an alcohol or substance abuse intervention correctly, you risk pushing that person further away from receiving treatment. Family intervention should be conducted with care and compassion, ideally with a trained professional. Making the person suffering from addiction feel attacked is the opposite of what you want to achieve.
