We offer immediate admission to those most in need and can even arrange transport for you. If you live in Northeast England, there is no better place to get help for addiction.

Inpatient & Outpatient Rehab

You can undergo an addiction recovery programme as an inpatient or outpatient.

Inpatient rehab

As an inpatient, you will undergo your detox in the safe environment of your clinic and take part in a comprehensive recovery programme.

Inpatients enjoy access to a variety of services and treatments and take part in an educational programme with workshops at the clinic. This type of rehabilitation has the highest success rate because the safe environment of the clinic reduces the risk of relapse during the detox stage significantly.

Outpatient rehab

As an outpatient, you will undergo a home detox  and take part in a lighter recovery programme. 

This is a less successful type of alcohol rehabilitation and it is only really suitable for those who are at a low risk of relapse. You will be cared for by a loved one or by yourself, which is why the risk of relapse is higher.

Whether you need a detox for street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, we can create a rehab programme to suit you.

Call us on 0800 118 2892 to find out more about the different types of rehab.

What Does Rehab Involve?

Rehab is a place of self-reflection and healing. Your time at your rehab clinic will focus on the physical side of your addiction, the triggers that cause you to use drugs or drink, and the behavioural patterns that foster your addiction.

With the help of our Durham rehab clinics, you will undergo an intensive recovery programme that also focuses on your health and fitness. Our goal is to help you beat your addiction and emerge from our care a new, healthier person.


You may be admitted into rehab immediately or on a planned date depending on your need for intervention. A clinical assessment will take place, to assess your physical and mental health so a recovery programme can be created.


The detox stage of rehab is the most controversial stage. During your drug or alcohol detox in Durham, you will abstain from the substances you are addicted to. Your withdrawal symptoms will be unpleasant and intense, but you will be on withdrawal medication to ease your symptoms and our nursing team will look after you. 

A detox typically lasts a few weeks to a few months. It depends on your circumstances and the extent and type of your addiction.


Behavioural therapy forms an important part of recovery. You will take part in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) sessions, which will help you apply practical steps to beat your addiction.

Therapy will be introduced during your alcohol or drug detox in Durham, so the physical and behavioural sides of your addiction are treated at the same time.

Other activities

Your recovery programme will include excursions in Durham, and you will take part in daily walks and cycling sessions. You may also benefit from sound therapy, holistic therapies and sound therapy to help ease your anxiety and improve your sleep.

Continued abstinence

Your recovery doesn’t end after you leave the care of your Durham rehab clinic. You will continue to face obstacles in your life and temptation will always be with you. To help you stay clean, we will put in place a support network and arrange for you to have a sponsor or peer mentor to guide you through your new life.
