What is Drug Detoxing?
If you believe you have a drug addiction, it can be extremely nerve-wracking to have to admit this and commit to detoxing yourself.
The fear of failure is often a driving force behind this, along with hesitation to let your loved ones find out about your issues.
Here at Serenity Addiction Centres, we are all too aware of this problem, which is why we have assembled an array of unique detoxification clinics across the entire United Kingdom with the intention of making getting the help you need as easy and unobtrusive as possible.
Serenity Centres are found all over the country and each is able to offer:
- World-leading facilities with top of the range resources
- Friendly expert staff, many of whom have overcome addiction in the past
- Relaxing, friendly surroundings that allow you to focus on your recovery
- The ability to detox from the comfort of your own home if preferred
- Free, no-obligation advice on NHS and private drug detox facilities in your area
- Personalised detox and recovery plans built around you and your needs
Our drug detoxification programme is comprehensive, based on the latest research, and specifically tailored to you, your addiction and your specific requirements.
We believe that the most effective recovery plan is one that adapts to the patient, instead of forcing the patient to adapt to a “one size fits all” detox programme.
If you are struggling with drug addiction, give us a call now on 0800 118 2892 for some friendly and no-obligation advice from our highly experienced team who are waiting to hear from you.
We are able to talk you through all of the potential options in your area and what the best route may be for you, at no cost to yourself.
Begin a New Life with Us
We have spent decades studying and refining drug detox methods, addiction recovery plans and relapse prevention processes, allowing us to provide the most effective drug rehabilitation and treatment plans available.
We have specially selected our staff based on their high standards of work, friendly and welcoming manner, and the fact many of them have previously been drug addicts and gone through drug detoxification programmes themselves. We believe this is crucial to assembling an effective and approachable team, as it is hard for a patient to take a doctor, nurse or therapist seriously when they haven’t been through the emotional struggles the patient is experiencing.
This also allows our staff to give more accurate and specific advice, meaning you can relax knowing you are in good hands.
While you might be worried about calling us, if you do, you will immediately feel welcome and understood, with our staff taking you through a quick and easy assessment process. This is also your chance to discuss any issues that are unique to you and to get quality advice on how best to overcome your addiction.
Whether you are a serious risk to yourself and others and need to immediately check yourself into a rehab facility, or you have a mild dependency and just want to ask some advice, we are always ready and waiting.
But what does drug detoxification actually involve Let’s take a look at your options.
Inpatient Drug Detox
Of course, drug detox is just the first stage of the rehab process, and we offer plenty of support groups, therapy sessions, medication and advice even after the detox is complete, to help you get your life back on track.
“How long is drug detox?” is a common question we get asked.
The amount of time necessary to detox safely and successfully from drugs varies depending on the person, the drugs, the frequency and volume of use, and more variables – but it is typically around 7 days.
If you attend one of our detox centres, you will be supervised by medical professionals to make sure your detox goes as smoothly as possible. There will be GP consultations, 24/7 one-to-one support, cognitive behavioural therapy, holistic therapy sessions, support groups where you can meet other people struggling with drug addiction, drug detox pills and other medications prescribed to combat the effects of withdrawal, and even activities such as yoga and swimming if you wish, to help your mind stay occupied and healthy while you overcome your withdrawal symptoms.
We also have nutritionists who are able to keep you healthy during your detox process and even give you healthcare products such as drug detox drinks and vitamins which, while unable to solve your issues alone, can make your time with us more comfortable and relaxing, aiding the body to detox itself naturally.
Once your 7-day drug detox programme is complete, you can either go home or continue to attend, depending on your risk of relapse which will be determined between yourself and our doctors.
This continuing support can be completed as an inpatient or outpatient and can be personalised to fit around your life, making it as convenient and stress-free as possible.
In the cases of milder drug addiction, or if you are simply too busy to attend one of our centres, you are also able to detox yourself at home.
Outpatient Drug Detox
This is our unique offering that means professional-level drug home detox treatment is available even for those that are unable to attend a rehab centre, meaning nobody has to struggle with addiction alone.
You will be able to go about your day to day routine, and even go to work if you feel able.
Despite this, you will still have regular contact and guidance from our expert team and can meet up for checkups, CBT sessions and more throughout your detox period. This makes sure there are no relapses or other issues.
We understand that attending a detox centre as an inpatient can not only be worrying and stressful for some people but also can intrude on your life and be very difficult to actually find the time for. We believe that this should never be a reason to prevent somebody’s life getting back on track, and believe that anybody with an addiction or dependency problem should have access to high-quality, professional medical care.
This is why we have launched our detox from home programmes, allowing patients around the UK a healthy, proven and stress-free way to detox themselves from drugs at home with 24/7 support.

How Much Does Drug Detox Cost?
For some people, drug detox centres have the image of being incredibly expensive places, only suitable for successful business people and celebrities. We have done our best to dispel this idea and offer some of the lowest priced drug detox options in the world, without sacrificing quality.
Not only this, but we offer low-interest payment plans and our services are covered by most medical insurance policies, meaning that even if you are struggling financially, you can get the treatment you deserve, get your life back on track, and only then will you have to worry about the financial aspects.
We also offer FREE assessments, meaning you can discuss your options with us, including the treatments you would need and any payment options we can offer you.
This means you can come to see us no matter your financial situation, as we find the idea of somebody being unable to afford the help they need horrifying.
You can of course also use the detox from home programme to save even more money, allowing you to access a lower cost professional detox programme that has ever been available previously.
