Drug and Alcohol Rehab Thetford
Does Thetford Have Rehab Centres?
While Thetford doesn’t have a rehab centre in the immediate area, there are several inpatient and outpatient facilities in the wider area including Norfolk. Plus, at Cassiobury Court, we offer leading inpatient drug and alcohol addiction recovery treatment in Watford just a short drive away.
To access rehab, you first need to get in touch with your GP. If you haven’t registered with a local GP in Thetford, you need to do this first. At your appointment, your GP will be able to discuss your condition and symptoms, prescribe any medication and they can also advise on rehab options and local community support.
Alternatively, our phone line is always open if you want to know more about the facilities at Cassiobury Court or even want us to start a referral – call today on 0800 001 4070.
Types of Treatment in Thetford
Just like other areas in the UK, if you’re looking for rehab in Thetford, you have two options. Firstly, there is inpatient treatment like the one at Cassiobury Court. This is where you’d receive treatment at a clinic and then stay on-site in a private room for the duration of the alcohol and drug rehab programme. There is also outpatient treatment where you receive treatment and therapy at a clinic but then recover at home.
The NHS typically offers rehab on an outpatient basis. While it is a great option if you have other commitments or responsibilities, it does come with its challenges. Namely that you’ll be returning to familiar surroundings where drugs and alcohol may be readily available.
While you might be concerned about leaving home, for inpatient rehab, residential stays do offer the best chance of long-term success and are often a necessary respite. You might find it difficult being away from friends and family but just know that you’re making the best decision for your future.
Thetford Support Groups
A key part of your recovery will be attending local support groups. As an outpatient, these can help you to stay accountable and for inpatients, it helps them to stay on track once their rehab programme has come to an end. Your GP can advise on where the nearest community initiatives are in Thetford.
There is also a range of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings just outside of Thetford, including many in Nottingham. Here, you’ll not only receive regular support but you can learn from and interact with others and keep your recovery going in the right direction – especially when in some of the more difficult times.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab at Cassiobury Court
Based in Watford, Cassiobury Court offers leading drug and alcohol addiction treatment. This includes therapy for alcohol addiction, cocaine addiction, cannabis addiction and opiate addiction as well as associated mental health concerns. While the addictions may vary, treatment is typically the same.
When you arrive at Cassiobury Court, your mental and physical health will be assessed. Our doctors can prescribe any medication to help ease the side effects of withdrawal symptoms too. The first thing that has to be done is that you need to detox from drugs or alcohol. You might have already tried to do this and it’s normal to experience withdrawal symptoms.
Common withdrawal symptoms include shaking, sweating cramps and muscle aches but these can also become severe and include seizures and hallucinations. In some instances, these can become dangerous which makes it very difficult to complete a drug or alcohol detox, away from a rehab centre with medical professionals. A medically-assisted detox is one of the safest ways to detox successfully and is one of the biggest benefits of attending inpatient rehab.
Once your alcohol or drug detox is complete, you will begin a programme of therapy and treatment. At Cassiobury Court, we use a combination of talking therapy and creative therapy in group and individual sessions. This is designed to treat your physical addiction as well as any behavioural symptoms. We encourage visits too and also offer family therapy to provide you with the support you need and also allow them to become involved in your recovery.
Every inpatient at Cassiobury Court will receive their own private room with wash facilities. All meals are taken care of so that you can spend your time getting better. We also arrange regular well-being activities to help you to create a new and healthy way of life. When you’re not involved in treatment, we encourage you to make the most of our grounds too.

Frequently Asked Questions
Again, the duration of your treatment can vary depending on the severity of your addiction to alcohol or drugs and on your own personal circumstances. Studies have shown that the longer a person spends at a rehab clinic, the more likely they are to remain free from drug and alcohol addiction once they complete their programme. This is typical because, with a longer treatment programme, you’ll have more time to adjust to the detox process and to spend time with the addiction experts at our drug and alcohol rehab.
Drinking or taking drugs in secret or trying to hide your consumption, constantly thinking ahead and looking forward to your next drink or hit, feeling strange or ill if you have gone a while without a drink or hit - these are all telltale signs that you have developed a substance abuse problem. If you think that you have an addiction, the best time to seek help is right away. The problem will only get worse the longer it is ignored, so you should act immediately.
Yes, you are permitted to bring your mobile phone with you to our drug and alcohol rehab. We do provide free Wi-Fi; however, the use of your phone is not permitted during your therapy sessions. During your downtime, we encourage you to keep in touch with your friends and family, although we do ask that you refrain from taking calls in communal areas and adhere to our confidentiality and social media policy at all times.
