What is alcohol rehab?
The thought of alcohol rehab can conjure up ideas of Hollywood celebrities seeking help for rock star lifestyles. What you might not have realised is that there are plenty of alcohol rehab clinics all throughout the UK. In fact, there is almost certainly a rehab clinic in your town or city. Feel free to take a look at our rehab centre locations.
Some people might imagine life in a rehab clinic must be difficult and depressing, but most centres these days put a lot of effort into creating a stress-free, calming and relaxing environment.
It isn’t simply a case of being confined to a room and not allowed to drink for a certain amount of time. Your time at a high-quality rehab clinic will typically be filled with individual and group therapy sessions, holistic therapies such as mindfulness and yoga, sessions with doctors and nurses, and a wealth of activities planned for exercise, outdoor activities and relaxation.
Here at Serenity Centres, we offer the best rehab centre environments available anywhere in the world, with all the facilities and resources needed for day-to-day life, from laundry services to kitchens to high-quality furnishings and details.
It can also be a huge benefit to socialise and have a laugh with other people going through the same circumstances, as going through alcohol addiction at home can be an extremely lonely and isolating situation.
How does Alcohol Rehab work?
Your first step is to have a consultation with a GP to discuss your drinking history, current health, desires for recovery and more. This allows us to ascertain whether you need to attend one of our rehab centres or whether an alcohol home detox is a more suitable option.
This consultation is completely free and comes with no obligations so if you believe you have an alcohol problem, the absolute best thing you can do for yourself is to contact us and arrange a free consultation right now.
If you do end up attending one of our alcohol rehab centres for treatment, the first step is alcohol detox. This is a tough part of the process but it is absolutely necessary for recovery. For more information on this process, the symptoms and potential treatments for detoxing from alcohol, you may want to check our guide to safe alcohol detoxification.
This may sound scary if you’ve been drinking for a long time, but it will be done under the supervision of our highly qualified doctors, nurses and therapists.
They will also provide as much advice, therapy and alcohol rehab help as they possibly can to make this process go as smoothly as possible and avoid any potential health issues or relapses.
Despite this, alcohol rehabilitation centres aren’t just places you go to detox. You will also receive medication (if necessary), support groups, relaxation therapies, advice on avoiding relapse, nutrition tips, and more to ensure your choice to quit drinking sticks.
Do I need Alcohol Rehab?
Admitting you have a problem and need professional help is extremely difficult for most people. However, there is a reason they say it’s the first step to successful recovery.
After all, if you believe your drinking problem is more under control than it is, or that you can just quit yourself when you want to, you are unlikely to find help or stick to an alcohol rehab program, even if you are completely wrong.
If you know you have a drinking problem but aren’t sure how severe it is, or how best to quit, the best thing you can do is simply give us a call on 0203 151 1280 for some friendly advice on alcohol rehab UK and beyond.
Some signs you may need rehabilitation include:
- Hiding alcohol use from close friends or loved ones, or lying about it
- Using alcohol to cope with stress or pain
- If drinking is affecting your performance at your job or education
- Neglecting your personal appearance
- Borrowing money or selling possessions to drink
- Planning your routine around drinking and always making time for it
You don’t necessarily need all the above signs to be at risk. Even a few of them is cause for concern. The most important thing to remember is alcoholism is an illness, and none of this is your fault.
Once you accept this it is much easier to accept that rehab is almost certainly your best option and that nothing is as important as getting over your addiction and getting back control of your life.
How Do I Get Into Rehab?
We can discuss the best way forward for your condition and offer free advice about our alcohol rehabilitation centres and which location you prefer, as well as other private rehab centre options, alcohol support groups and NHS services in your area.
If we do come to the joint agreement that attending a rehab centre is the best option for you, we can also pick you up from anywhere and take care of everything to make the process as non-stressful for you as possible.

What are the Costs of Rehabilitation?
Serenity Rehab Centres are some of the most cost-effective rehabilitation clinics in the world, allowing us to provide treatment starting from just £350 a week.
Some people assume that the cost of alcohol rehab in the UK is higher than many other places in the world, but we have spent a lot of time and effort on making sure our alcohol rehab retreats are accessible to anyone who needs them.
Most of our rehab clinics accept medical insurance, and we also have a fair credit facility that puts the focus on getting you well and sorting out any debt afterwards with affordable and easy payments, meaning even if you can’t afford rehab at the moment, there is no reason to put your recovery on hold and keep you from living your life any longer. After all, what could be more important?
If you wish to discuss whether your medical insurance is accepted, what credit options we could offer you, or anything else to do with alcohol rehab cost, contact us anytime for friendly and unbiased advice.
Alcohol Rehab Aftercare
Once you have quit drinking, whether through our rehab centres or through a home detox programme, the struggle isn’t over. Once you go home from a rehabilitation clinic, the temptation can be a problem and people can sometimes relapse back into drinking, even after previously defeating their cravings and feeling like they never need to drink again.
Rehab is also designed to be very calming and stress-free, and so returning to the real world can be quite stressful at times.
It’s important to remember commitment is key, and even the most sophisticated rehab techniques in the world will struggle to help you if you aren’t fully committed yourself. We often offer aftercare programmes that involve coming back once or twice a week for therapy sessions, family workshops and more, which are every bit as important as the initial stay at the rehab centre, and which can sometimes go on for up to a year afterwards.
We can also offer regular alcohol breath tests as a way of detecting relapses and making sure they are treated and the correct steps are taken immediately. If any of this sounds helpful it’s usually a great idea to schedule a tour of one of our local centres and see what we could offer you.
