• CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
• Integrated therapy (a combination of psychotherapy and addiction counselling).
• Person-centred therapy (putting you at the centre of your rehabilitation).

• Individual addiction therapy.
• Group therapy.
• The 12-step programme.
Our clinics also offer several cutting-edge holistic and complementary therapies, which have been demonstrated to assist with stress reduction, sleeplessness and restlessness during detoxification. These treatments include:

A peaceful space to recover – alcohol rehab in London
We understand that it takes the right sort of facility to help you/your loved one recover. Comfort is of paramount importance during the detox process, which is why we offer a peaceful space to recover in desirable surroundings.
If you like, you can choose to have your own en-suite bedroom within our state-of-the-art alcohol treatment facility. Many of our clients remark that their stay feels less like a medical programme and more like a relaxing spa break. It’s our belief that your stay should feel like a home-away-from-home, which is why our affordable London rehab centres are furnished to an incredibly high and comfortable standard. We want to ensure that you have access to everything you’ll need in terms of comfort, and you’ll even be able to avail of our high-spec gym and spa facilities if you so wish.
Each of our treatment centres is highly reputable, held in high-regard and CQC-registered, and most of our residential rehab centres only treat a small number of patients at any given time. This ensures that you’ll have our undivided attention and will benefit from a high counsellor-to-patient ratio, as well as being able to expect a peaceful environment to recover without disruption.
Addiction treatment tailored to your needs
We understand that every alcohol addiction patient is unique. Everybody has different requirements and expectations of their rehab experience. We’re here to ensure your rehab experience is not only successful in helping you make a full recovery, but enjoyable too.
London alcohol addiction statistics
Having an alcohol problem can feel like a very solitary experience. It’s not uncommon to feel alone and isolated. However, alcohol addiction is much more common than you may think. In London, it is estimated that almost one-third of the population exceeds harmful intake levels of alcohol during their heaviest weekly drinking days. If you feel alone in your condition, we can assure you that you are not.
In England alone, there are an estimated 589,100 alcohol-dependent drinkers. Rather disturbingly, less than 20% of them are currently receiving treatment. In 2019, there were 7,551 deaths directly attributable to alcohol recorded by the Office for National Statistics in the UK. This number is shocking, but it also drives home the point of what happens when those with alcohol and other substance misuse issues do not undergo a specific professional treatment for their illness.
Alcohol dependence can kill if left untreated – and the above statistics highlight how the majority of alcohol-dependent individuals are unaware of how serious their condition may be. In our experience, it is entirely possible to recover from alcohol addiction, provided you are willing to undergo a professional programme of treatment.
However, one-size-fits-all treatments for addiction simply do not work. Like all chronic illnesses, treatment for alcohol addiction requires a bespoke treatment plan to ensure that recovery is not only successful but maintainable.
Admission to London rehab – what to expect
Upon deciding on the type of rehab programme you wish to enrol in, our team will arrange admission for you. If your needs are urgent, we can arrange for this within 24 hours of receiving your call. If required, we can also assist by arranging transportation. This will ensure that you arrive safely at your London rehab centre of choice.
If you are alcohol-dependent, we do not recommend or expect you to stop drinking immediately. Upon arrival at our London alcohol treatment centre, a consultant psychiatrist will take an assessment. From here, we’ll be able to prescribe a bespoke medical detox regime which will be carefully designed to help you to withdraw from alcohol or drugs as comfortably as possible.
One of the largest fears for those with addiction issues is that detoxification will be mentally unbearable, physically painful, or a combination of both. We would like to assure you that this is not the case. Our clinicians are on-hand to prescribe and administer approved medicines designed to help diminish the severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. In most cases, patients will feel no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever.
During your detox, you will be supported clinically by medical professionals and therapeutically by therapists and counsellors. You will only undergo light therapeutic treatments during the initial stages of detox. Our staff are incredibly carefully to provide patients with the space needed to recover physically before allowing them to take our one of our bespoke addiction rehabilitation programmes which are designed to address the psychological need to abuse alcohol.
London rehab: frequently asked questions
How long will my stay in a London rehab centre last?
The initial period of detox can take days or weeks, depending on the severity of your addiction. Rehabilitation periods typically take between one and three months. Our alcohol rehab centres offer residential treatment during this time, and we recommend a residency for at least one month. However, we understand that people may need to return to their homes, and we can provide several outpatient options.
Can I use my phone/laptop in a London rehab centre?
Our clinics offer free WiFi to all patients, and we allow patients to use their phones. However, recovery is the main focus during the initial week of detox. Some of our London rehabs allow light use of laptops, provided this does not interfere with treatment. Staff will assess laptop/phone use on an individual basis. The purpose of this is to provide everybody with the right opportunity to engage with treatment.
Can my family visit me in rehab in London?
We encourage the visitation of family/loved ones to those undergoing rehab. Having the support of those we care about can help us to understand the need to recover from addiction and can even be crucial in preventing relapse.
In addition to this, we can also offer family therapy sessions. These sessions help both sides to see things from one another’s perspective and can be beneficial in helping each family member reach a sound understanding. Having a healthy relationship with your family can help to strengthen your resolve to recover long-term from alcohol misuse.

Absolutely yes, so many people are not even aware they have a mental health problem and many people don’t make the connection in children and mental health. The alcohol can become a ‘solution’ for a persons mental health. At the start it will seem as if the alcohol is quieting the mind, but in time as the addiction progresses it will only add to any mental health problems the person has. It is also difficult to diagnose a person with mental health while under the influence of alcohol.
As well as being directly related to many serious diseases, drinking large amounts of alcohol can also lead to poor sexual performance, and it can harm an unborn baby. If you have an alcohol related problem, there are many ways in which you can get help to reduce your drinking, and there are also many services that you can use that will help you stop altogether. Definition The problems associated with alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are wide ranging, and can be physical, psychological, and social.
There is no definitive cure for addiction. However, rehab can provide patients with the skills needed to successfully manage their addiction and remain sober. Recovery from addiction is never over and patients will need to work on their ability to avoid relapse for the rest of their lives. A high quality addiction rehab programme sets patients up for this process.
Most people can enjoy a casual night out with friends, have one or two drinks and then stop, and they might not drink again for several days. They enjoy a drink, but they don’t NEED it.
