Getting started with rehab

Types of addictions we treat
Our London rehab clinics treat addiction to alcohol, street drugs, psychoactive substances (formerly known as legal highs) and prescription drugs.
Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the addictions we treat:
- Crack cocaine
In recent years, we have seen an increase in London referrals for addictions to psychoactive substances and prescription drugs. Alcohol and cannabis referrals are also on the rise, with these two substances Beijing a common dual diagnosis.
Our experience treating addictions to alcohol and most drugs, including cases of dual diagnosis and triple diagnosis, means we can offer specialised care that delivers the help and support you need to overcome your addiction.
When you might need help with private rehab London
Addiction has several tell-tale signs to watch out for:
- You regularly abuse alcohol or drugs
- You can’t stop drinking or taking drugs
- You need drink or drugs to feel normal
- You make excuses to drink or do drugs
- You prioritise drink/drugs over family and friends
If you can relate, you need to consult with a doctor to make a professional diagnosis. Following this consultation, you can decide whether or not to enter a rehab clinic in London.
Perhaps alcohol and drugs have taken control of your life, or you wake up thinking about drugs and look for every opportunity to use them.
Stopping drinking or taking drugs without the help of a London rehabilitation centre rarely achieves long-term results. You may stop for a few days or weeks, but without support, you will relapse, and your habit could come back with a vengeance.
You will need professional help from a drug rehab centre in London when substances cause severe physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.
Entering drug and alcohol rehab in London will be the best thing you ever do because it will put you on a path to recovery and change your life.
Willpower isn’t always enough to overcome the urge to drink and do drugs during intense withdrawal episodes. Private rehab London is a place to get clean and work on your resilience, so you can avoid using drugs in the future.
Drug rehab London and alcoholism treatments
Drug and alcoholism treatments can accommodate various medical and social requirements, such as health and housing problems. A variety of treatments are available so that everyone can get the help they need.
Because everyone experienced addiction differently, all rehabilitation programmes are personalised. Your detox and therapy will be different to other people’s so that you have the best chance of staying clean and sober for good.
Here are the different types of drug and alcohol rehab in London:
- Inpatient rehab: This is when you enter drug rehab in London or alcohol rehab in London and stay in clinic accommodation, which lets us monitor your progress and tweak your treatments to achieve better results.
- Outpatient rehab: This is when you stay at home during rehab London and follow a medicated treatment programme. You will receive telephone support and nurse visits when needed with outpatient therapy sessions.
- Substitution drugs: We may prescribe a substitute drug that alleviates your cravings for alcohol rehab London and some drug addictions. Your treatment programme will prescribe these.
- Withdrawal medication: When substitute drugs are not available, we manage withdrawal symptoms with anti-sickness medications. These will help you manage your withdrawal symptoms during detox.
- Therapy and counselling: Therapy and counselling help to address the behavioural and psychological sides of addiction. Therapies include CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and guided self-help.
Holistic therapies: With inpatient drug rehab in London, you can participate in yoga, meditation classes, art classes, reading sessions, massage and aromatherapy to escape your routine and develop a greater sense of being.
Detoxification is a stage of alcohol and drug rehab that cleanses your body. Your alcohol clinic in London will decide how to approach this stage based on your circumstances.
Detoxes last anywhere from 48-hours to a week, depending on the types of drug in your system. Managing your withdrawal symptoms with medication can be achieved with a substitute drug or anti-sickness medication (or both).
Our rehab clinics in London offer world-class facilities where you can undergo detoxification in a safe environment. You will be looked after by qualified nurses and doctors and take part in a medically-assisted rehabilitation programme.
Detoxing is the scariest and most difficult stage of rehabilitation, but it is also the most critical. During this stage, you have an intense desire to drink or do drugs. Overcoming this intense urge is essential to beat your addiction.

Inpatient and outpatient rehab in London
Your rehabilitation programme will include the following:
- Medicated detoxification
- Prescribed medication (including substitutes and anti-sickness)
- Therapy and counselling
- Meal/diet plan (with help preparing meals if you need it)
Inpatient and outpatient alcohol therapy in London offers the opportunity to beat addiction and transform your life. However, they are suited to different people.
For example, some people have jobs they can’t escape or family commitments that make staying at an addiction clinic in London impossible.
For these patients, an outpatient rehab programme is a suitable option that can have good results, and you can try it with the support of a Serenity rehab centre in London.
We generally recommend outpatient drug rehabilitation in London for mild addictions and cases when there is a low-mid risk of relapse. Outpatient rehab is also cheaper, making getting help from a rehabilitation centre in London more accessible.
If you need intensive treatment, residential rehab in London is the best choice. By staying in our care, you will receive a higher level of support.
Inpatients stay in clinic accommodation, with stays ranging from seven days to 3 months depending on the type of addiction.
For example, cases of dual diagnosis and cases where complex mental health problems are apparent will need longer treatment.
As an inpatient at one of our London drug and alcohol centres, you will receive the best care and take part in a comprehensive treatment programme.
Outpatients follow a rehab programme at home, participating in a medically assisted detox and receiving therapy as an outpatient.
We recommend outpatient rehab for less complex addictions, alcohol treatment, and when there is a relatively low risk of relapse.
As an outpatient at one of our clinics, you will check in with us every day and participate in therapy sessions at your local therapy centre.
Therapy and counselling sessions
Depending on the complexity of your addiction, therapy and counselling sessions may be a condition or recommendation in your care.
Therapy is an integral part of London rehab because it addresses addiction’s behavioural and psychological sides, such as mental health issues and social triggers that give you an intense urge to drink or do drugs.
We offer a variety of therapies, including:
- Humanistic therapy
- Psychiatric therapy
- Guided self-help
- Talking therapies
- Behavioural therapies
- Social and group therapies
- Confidence building therapies
The right approach to therapy depends on the mental health of the patient and their personal history. We often help patients with a history of physical abuse, sexual abuse and behavioural problems, taking great care with treatment.
By choosing a Serenity London rehab centre, you will have access to world-class therapists and doctors and take part in a structured rehab programme that addresses the behavioural, psychological and social sides of your addiction.
You might think you don’t need therapy, but it’s important to remember that addiction is a highly complex disease. Even if we get you off drugs and alcohol with medication, you could relapse following due to anxiety, stress and societal pressures.
Not all therapies get inside your head – therapies like guided-self-help and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) build self-confidence and mental resilience, providing tools and techniques for managing your worries and stresses.
