What Happens in Private Rehab?

Battling addiction alone is extremely difficult and can cause many negative effects on your life, including long term physical and mental health problems.

The addiction counsellors and medical professionals in private rehab understand the challenges of addiction, which is why rehab treatment programmes incorporate support and expert guidance throughout the process.

Inpatient rehab programmes involve medically assisted detox followed by therapy and aftercare sessions.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

The detoxification stage of drug and alcohol rehabilitation includes the removal of all harmful toxins from your system. A drug and alcohol detox commonly causes withdrawal symptoms that can make the withdrawal process uneasy, which is why medical support is so beneficial when recovering from addiction.

With private alcohol rehab and drug rehab, you will have access to 24/7 care from our staff who will monitor your withdrawal symptoms and administer prescription medication if required.

Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

After undergoing a successful drug and alcohol detox, you will move on to therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), counselling sessions, stress management, group therapy and relapse prevention.

Support groups and therapy treatments are designed to help you understand your addiction more and learn ways to take control of your mind by teaching you relapse prevention techniques to overcome urges or cravings that could trigger a relapse of your addiction.

Treating psychological aspects of drug and alcohol addiction are important aspects of addiction recovery, as many addictions such as cocaine addiction and alcohol addiction also cause psychological symptoms.

In addition to these psychologically focused therapies, we also ensure our client’s well-being is taken care of by delivering mindfulness, yoga, art therapy, fitness therapy, relaxation and sleep management. Visit our facilities page to view pictures of our clinic.


What is the Difference Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab?

Private rehab treatment is different to local NHS recovery programmes in the way it is delivered and the therapies you can expect to receive. Private rehab also provides you with aftercare and relapse prevention techniques which are not available through outpatient services.

Funding for Rehab

Outpatient treatment is typically free for people who require them, whereas private rehab can be costly. This reflects the types of treatments provided which treat addiction and factors in residential costs and aftercare services provided by medical professionals.

Inpatient Treatment Programmes

The majority of private rehab programmes are residential, meaning you will stay in a rehab facility for a set amount of time during the treatment programme. Publicly funded rehab through the NHS or services such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous take place locally with weekly meetings that do not involve a residential stay.


Pros and Cons of Outpatient Rehab

  • Local addiction treatment in your area
  • Affordable rehab programmes for all budgets
  • Treatment works around your regular schedule
  • Long waiting lists to start treatment
  • Hard to avoid relapse at home
  • Lower success rates than private rehab

What Are the Benefits of Private Rehab?

There are a number of benefits to private drug and alcohol rehab, from free aftercare to 24/7 support.

Fast Admission to Rehab

Unlike outpatient rehab programmes, inpatient treatment offers you quick treatment for any drug and alcohol use disorder. Our admissions process to Cassiobury Court enables you to start a treatment programme at our residential facility once you have paid a deposit and secured your room and treatment.

We can admit you to our rehab centre within 24 hours if you meet the criteria needed by our admissions team.

Leading Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

At private rehab, your physical health and mental health are prioritised throughout treatment to give you the best chance at achieving long-term addiction recovery. This is why you will receive a medically-assisted detox followed by therapies which have been proven to treat drug and alcohol problems.

Medical Guidance and Support

One of the biggest benefits of residential alcohol rehab is that you receive 24/7 support and guidance from support workers, medical professionals and peers also receiving treatment. Staying in a residential facility such as ours at Cassiobury Court provides you with the comfort and expertise needed to help you overcome harmful drinking habits, cocaine addiction or other drug addictions.

By choosing to complete a private rehab treatment programme here at Cassiobury Court, you will benefit from a quick, confidential admission process.

How Much Does Private Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab Cost?

Private drug and alcohol rehab isn’t free like the NHS or outpatient programmes such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous – however, the positives of paying a fee for addiction treatment significantly outweigh the negatives of joining a long waiting list. You can read more about our residential treatment compared to a free service here.

Typically, the costs of private treatment options start from around £4,000 upwards and for the full detox and rehabilitation process you can expect to pay more – the pricing of alcohol addiction treatment depends on the substance and severity of the drug or alcohol addiction.

Alternatively, if you aren’t able to afford private alcohol rehab and drug rehab you can still receive treatment from Cassiobury Court through the Herts Valleys CCG. This service is only available in locations that are managed by Herts Valley CCG.

I spent 2 weeks at Cassiobury, really think it might have saved my life, Jane walked me in on the first day and told me I wouldn't want to leave by the end of it, she wasn't wrong. Every member of staff were amazing and so supportive. Having had two not so good experiences at other rehabs I was very nervous and in a really bad way, at my worst point in drinking ever and thinking there was no way out, but now I feel better than I have in 4 years :) so apprecitive to literally everyone there, so welcoming and understanding. The food is amazing too, and will cater to your needs, felt so looked after and genuinely cared for, will forever be grateful for this experience x

Going for an experience of rehabilitation can be an extremely daunting one. Most people arrive broken, emotionally, financially and spiritually bankrupt; and most of all, they feel alone. My experience at Cassiobury Court exceeded all my wildest expectations. Immediately, I was swept up in a system of support, understanding and care. The staff was incredible - professional yet loving. The sessions there provided me with a solid foundation and understanding of my issues, leaving me equipped to deal with the outside world upon my discharge. The environment inside was like family where close ties were soon formed with no judgements being passed and only mutual care being cultivated. It was one of the most enriching experiences of my life and I am so grateful for having had this opportunity to pause my life and work on my well being towards a more wholesome future. If you’re needing help, this place is the best choice. You’ll be in great hands, highly recommended!

Cassiobury Court is a Unique Rehabilitation Facility I can’t thank the team at Cassiobury Court enough for their support through one of the lowest points of my life. From the management down to the recovery team, therapists, catering team, medical team, maintenance team and housekeepers. They all go above and beyond for the people in their care. Many of the staff members have personally been affected by addiction, so understand how it feels like to be at your lowest most broken point in life. It’s especially helpful for people going through their first rehab where they are gently led to understand their addiction and supported by a team of therapists. For anyone whose unfortunate enough to have had a relapse, they welcome you back without judgement and it’s like seeing old friends. The catering team are fantastic and will accommodate any dietary requirements. They have a simple aim - to nourish you back to health. The full English breakfast, regular roasts, salad bars, snacks and late night sandwiches are to die for. You can talk to the recovery team at anytime of the day, even if its just for a hug or reassurance. I know I've needed a hug on a couple of occasions. The experience at Cassiobury is very intimate, with around 25 guests at anytime all of whom quickly become a community providing support and will quickly climatise and welcome any newcomers. They too were anxious and confused when they first arrived. The internet and wifi has excellent coverage and it’s great to have Netflix available in your bedroom. You can also use your phone as long as your respectful of others. I’d like to especially thank Rebecca for her helping me at my most vulnerable and for her aftercare plan. I’d also like to make a shout out to Martin whose recovery sessions and general advice are always on point. Ollie for his super charged sessions and a Pauli for his breath coaching. Oh and you also get 12 months of aftercare with a weekly midday zoom call... I will end this by saying that with any rehab, you get what you put in. Go in with an open mind and use the time their to reset your life and deal with any demons from the past. Be truthful and honest with your piers and leave the past behind at Cassiobury Court. Then walk out of the gates to your new life. I wish you well in your recovery journey. Mr NA - West London

I was admitted to Cassiobury Court on Tuesday 3rd January 2023 for a 28 day period, suffering from alcohol addition. Having not been in rehab previously, I was unsure what to expect, Cassiobury Court provides detoxification, group sessions/discussions and 1-2-1's to its Clients in a relaxed atmosphere whilst also encouraging the completion of the 1st 3 steps from the AA 12 step programme. Anyway, everyone was very welcoming and I spent the 1st few days in the detoxification process, in which my sleep and appetite returned. I also felt very comfortable and had no compulsion to drink alcohol. From the start of the following week, I started attending the group sessions and numerous 1-2-1 sessions with counsellors, key workers or therapists. I have found everyone at Cassiobury Court, management, counsellors, key workers, medical staff, chefs and cleaning staff to be excellent n being very welcoming, enthusiastic and approachable at any time, with an effort on our recovery. The group therapy is excellent and the fellow clients support each other in recovery. The accommodation is excellent and the food (breakfast, lunch, dinner with late night sandwiches) are also excellent. You can get hot drinks, a range including water, teas, herbal teas, coffee and hot chocolate and yoghurts, fruit and biscuits, 24 hours/day. They offer an excellent weekly laundry service where your clothes are returned clean and folded within a few hours. Also, they provide a 12 month support service which involve weekly Zoom meetings. I left on Tuesday 31st January 2023 , in a much better place having competed the 1st 3 AA steps, and willing and ready to follow the AA 12 Step Programme. I would highly recommend Cassiobury Court to anyone who is looking for a alcohol or drug rehabilitation service. Finally, a big thank you, to all the staff at Cassiobury Court..

I have spent some time at Cassiobury Court over the last 6 months and cannot speak more highly of the experience. I admitted myself for alcohol addiction and was very scared when I arrived and did not have any idea what to expect. The staff could not have been kinder to me. I wanted to leave on day 2 because I was very anxious and out of my comfort zone, but fortunately staff members calmed me down and I ended up staying which I am very glad about. The schedule is very good with group sessions, some one on one sessions and therapy sessions. The food is excellent and the chefs are very accommodating if you wish to have something different. There is a daily trip to the local shop to get any bits you may need. All the staff are amazing, the recovery workers, the management, the chefs and kitchen staff and all that work at Cassiobury are all so caring and it really shows. You have time to get to know the rest of the group and I ended up building close bonds and have kept in contact with many that I met in Cassiobury (and I bump into people I met at meetings outside as well as on the aftercare calls). All in all, if your are considering a treatment centre then I would highly recommend Cassiobury Court, I am very grateful for my time there.

Just completed 28 days at Cassiobury Court and I am pleased to say it has been a positive experience. I have received compassionate expert care from the staff team here who have an in-depth knowledge of addiction. My key workers have been an inspiration and have been by my side every step of the way providing a range of interventions to help me work through my addiction issues. I have been treated with kindness, privacy, dignity and respect. I leave having gained confidence and the power to succeed. Thank you to all at Cassiobury court.

I came here on January 2023. I was consumed by an alcohol addiction. I was at an all time low. Family and friends found this place for me, this was my first treatment. I felt very welcome upon entering the gates. All staff took great care of me.I was given a medical detox this made the start of the stay here very comfortable. I stayed here for 28 days and was given one on one therapy treatment, group sessions and external recovery meetings. The staff are very understanding and fair. I was given the tools and a brilliant foundation to achieve my goal with great support. Whilst staying here I started to realise there is light at the end of the tunnel to live in a positive and rewarding life if I keep myself focused. I am grateful for to have been here. My advice would be to take the first steps to get the help you need.
Where do I even start… This has been my second time in there as a year ago when I was there, I didn’t take the program seriously enough and I just wanted to get clean from drugs. However after having a few months sobriety, then relapsing as I didn’t do what was suggest to me! I ended up going back for 28 days. Let me tell you, that this experience was a one in a lifetime and I took everything on board, attended all sessions and did exactly what I was told! Every single member of staff at cassiobury go above and beyond for their clients. They put time and effort into all of us and someone is always there for you to talk to day or night. There is a huge range of sessions which you can attend and this give you the knowledge of your addiction. You also have counselling sessions once a week which helps massively🙏🏼 Cassiobury court feels like your home with your family. Leaving today was so tough as I left so many amazing people behind there. However this is the new start of my journey, I have the right tools behind me this time and I would never of been able to do it without cassiobury. Also big up the chiefs there! The food is AMAZING!!!!! I put on over a stone in 4 weeks…I think that says it all! Thank you cassiobury for giving me a new and improved way of living.

When I came in to Cassiobury I was all over the place my life was in chaos caused by me. I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived, I had been in another rehab before. I didn’t have a good experience there unfortunately. At Cassiobury I made the effort to be around everyone and learn, taking part in everything which is the only way to learn. The thing I really love about Cassiobury are staff who are in recovery themselves which is amazing - they point you in the right direction from their own experiences which has made all the difference to me. It’s been massive for me. You know when you are talking to staff they have done it themselves. Every single staff have been brilliant, they have different approaches and which has been the best therapy for me as they understand what I’ve been going through. I felt safe at Cassiobury which gave me a sense of relief and helped me to relax, release my anxieties and fears focusing on what I needed to do - from feeling broken I feel repaired. I cannot fully express what this is done for me. I can’t fault this place from the top to the cleaners. I leave Cassiobury with more understanding about addiction than I’ve ever had. I’ve got the tools I need which gives me the courage to remain sober. My loved one found this place and I’m so grateful that she did! She made a huge effort for me. You will get everything you need if you want it - don’t waste the opportunity. For me Cassiobury court will work for you but you need to work for yourself while you’re there - you won’t regret it.
