Private Drug & Alcohol Rehab

Chatting over coffee

When you have an addiction, getting help can be difficult. At Serenity, we’ll get you into private drug rehab so you can work on beating your addiction and get clean. 

Despite what you might have heard, drug and alcohol addiction isn’t about having bad habits or being selfish. It is a physical and psychological dependence on substances you need to feel normal. 

With private alcohol rehab and drug rehab, you have the opportunity to change your life. 

As an addict, using drugs isn’t a choice. What you have is a disease that needs medical treatment like any other disease. Recognising this is an important step on the road to recovery.   

Unfortunately, addiction comes with a lot of stigma and shame. This stops many people from talking about their problems and getting help. 

Our role as your private drug rehab clinic is to give you the help you need without judgement. 

Call us on 0203 151 1280 for a free, no-obligation chat about how we can help you with your drug addiction.

Do I Need Private Drug Rehab?

If you need drink or drugs to feel normal, or you feel sick without them, you have a problem.

When you have an addiction, you have a dependence, so stopping will make you poorly. After only a few hours you will feel like you are climbing the walls.  

If you have ever tried to stop you will know it’s impossible without help. 

Eventually, you have to give in to intense and horrible withdrawal symptoms. 

Addiction is a disease that creates a physical dependency. If you suddenly stop taking drugs or drinking when you are addicted, your body will make you feel very poorly very quickly. 

9 out of 10 people who go “cold turkey” relapse within 1-2 days. Sometimes, the relapse is enormous, resulting in a long, dangerous binge. 

Drug and private alcohol rehabilitation centres exist so you can recover in a medically assisted way. The chances of success are significantly increased when you have a support team around you. 

Serenity’s addiction centres specialise in alcohol and drug rehab. We have world-class experts and facilities, and we help people from all walks of life. 

Types Of Private Rehab

There are two types of private rehab: outpatient rehab and inpatient rehab. 

Outpatient rehab

Outpatients undergo medically assisted rehab at home with withdrawal and sickness medication. 

Outpatient rehab is suitable for people who have a minimal history of relapse, mild or new addictions, and those who are assessed by our addiction experts to have good mental and physical health. 

Inpatient rehab

Inpatients stay in residential accommodation at one of our private rehab clinics in the UK

Inpatient rehab is suitable for chronic, long-term addictions, people who are assessed to have mental and physical health needs, and addictions that present life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. 

Overall, inpatients receive a higher standard of care and take part in a more comprehensive recovery programme. This makes it a better choice for complex cases such as dual and triple diagnoses. 

Does Private Rehab Need To Be In A Clinic?

Private rehabilitation should take place in a clinic when there is a danger to the patient’s health or when there is a significant possibility of relapse. 

The decision to enter a rehab clinic or do rehab at home is a matter of what is best for the patient. We will talk about your needs with you and recommend a few options, so you aren’t faced with a single choice. 

Factors that determine whether you should be in a clinic for private drug rehab include:

  • Types of substances used
  • Other drug use
  • Level of dependence 
  • History of withdrawal 
  • Medical history 
  • Medical needs
  • Physical health 
  • Mental health 
  • Employment status 
  • Goal for treatment
  • Social and family support 

Therapies and Treatments 

All our private rehab clinics in the UK provide treatments and therapies that are clinically proven to help patients achieve abstinence. 


Detox is necessary to cleanse your system of alcohol and drugs. It addresses the physical side of addiction, to get you clean and sober. 

As your detox begins, you will be given your first dose of medication and vitamins.

Some drugs have substitutes that will ease your cravings. For example, you will be on a substitute for private alcohol rehab but not for cannabis because there is no substitute for cannabis. 


We offer a range of therapies, including:

  • Guided self-help 
  • Talking therapies
  • Behavioural therapies
  • Biochemical restoration
  • Psychological therapies 
  • Well-being therapies 
  • Social and group therapies

You might benefit from talking to one of our psychiatrists or psychologists. Alternatively, you can work on your life skills with a trainer. 

When you enter private drug rehab with us, we will create a personalised rehab programme that addresses your needs. We will provide support in the right places to help you overcome addiction. 

Other treatments

Detox addresses the physical side of addiction while therapy addresses the behavioural and psychological sides of addiction. 

In-between there are treatments we use to calm and relax your body and mind. 

They include:

  • Acupuncture 
  • Reiki
  • Massage
  • Aromatherapy 
  • Creative therapies 


Our private drug rehab clinics also host daily and weekly activities. These allow you to enjoy yourself whilst in residential accommodation. 

Here’s a list of some of the activities: 

  • Weekly excursions
  • Painting  
  • Daily walks and cycling sessions 
  • Horse riding 
  • Movie nights 
  • Fitness classes
  • Yoga, pilates and meditation

It’s important to note you will only get to take part in these activities if you stay in one of our private alcohol rehabilitation centres

We also have significant experience helping patients with double and triple diagnoses. 

If you are addicted to alcohol and drugs, or two or more drugs, we can help.   

Our private rehab clinics in the UK offer world-class standards of support and care. 

Being addicted to drugs can ruin your life. It can drastically change relationships with your family and friends, affect your health, trigger mental health issues and ruin your career and education. 

We implore you to enter private rehab if you are struggling with addiction.

Rehab For Dual Diagnosis And Complex Cases

Once you are diagnosed with a dual diagnosis, the next step for us is figuring out a way to treat both conditions simultaneously.

The most common double diagnosis is an alcohol addiction with drug addiction. The drug is often heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine or prescription drugs like fentanyl and tramadol.

You will need a combination of private alcohol rehab and drug rehab to overcome your problem. 

Thankfully, we are experienced in treating all combinations of dual diagnoses. We can also treat a triple diagnosis. The third drug is normally cannabis or another psychoactive drug. 

We are also highly experienced in serious mental health issues like schizophrenia. 

Our nurses have special training to care for people with mental health problems and disorders. 

Our training covers: 

  • Anger
  • PTSD
  • OCD
  • Self-harm 
  • Bipolar 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Schizophrenia
  • Paranoia 
  • Phobias
  • Stress
  • Sleep problems
  • Eating problems 

If you have a mental health disorder, choosing a Serenity private drug rehab centre will ensure you get the help you need to kick your habit.  

Admission To A Private Drug Rehab Programme 

In the UK, admission into drug and alcohol rehab has to happen voluntarily by law.

An exception exists with sectioning under the Mental Health Act. 

It’s important to understand that not everyone wants help. People will decide they need help when they come to terms with their addiction. 

Once you are ready to accept help, our private rehab clinics in the UK are here for you.  

We offer private transport to our clinics, so you get here safely. We have facilities for immediate and rapid admission. 

Alternatively, we can book you in so you can take care of your personal and professional life. If entering rehab will affect your job, you may want to plan your stay with us so you can book time off. 

You will undergo a clinical assessment so we can determine your physical and mental health and the extent of your addiction. 

Your private rehabilitation programme will be designed based on the results of your clinical assessment. We will determine whether you should stay in residential accommodation or whether staying at home is a realistic option for you.
