Drug detox can be uncomfortable, and it is not advisable to quit using without professional help. There are a number of medications which can be given to help with the withdrawal symptoms, but it is not advisable to do this without the help of a medical professional. A lot of people in London decide to detox in a residential rehab where they can receive ongoing support and professional help.
Residential rehab in the UK is usually paid out of pocket, but private health insurance may be used to fund treatment.
In special cases, the NHS or social services may assist in paying for your stay at a residential centre when local community-based treatments do not suffice.
It’s simply down to you, you choose! Try a week programme, stay for 2 weeks or take a 28-day programme in full-time Westminster rehab. If you are an outpatient, you may be in rehab for up to 3 months. Contact us today for a tailored programme to suit you.
Many families experience one of the many frustrating characteristics of addiction, which is denial. Denial can prevent individuals suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction from seeking life-saving treatment and accepting help.
Even when it is blatantly obvious to all around them, that professional help is needed, they still think that you are making a fuss over nothing and that they are ok as they are.
If you, or someone close to you, requires an intervention, we can provide a specialist therapeutic service to determine if you have an issue. After that, you or your loved one can receive the proper treatment.

At Which Rehab we recognise that everyone is different. That’s why we offer therapy sessions in both individual and group settings.
Our group therapy sessions involve a group of inpatients or outpatients being led by a specialist therapist to help them combat their problems. They are intended to provide support and encouragement in order to overcome denial and aid the recovery process.
Our 1-2-1 sessions on the other hand allow you to talk in private with a counsellor who has your focus entirely.
There are benefits to both options, so talk to our team today to find out which would be best for you.
The 12-step approach is a programme based on principles that help people overcome addiction and substance abuse. Originating from AA methodology, this renowned process is now used to combat all forms of addiction.
The 12 steps that participants go through act as a bridge between past behaviours to encourage them to take responsibility for the past, present and future and accept they are responsible for the decisions they make.
Holistic therapies are introduced into rehab and addiction treatment to improve the wellbeing and reduce the stress of individuals during the withdrawal process of their addiction. They are used to help heal the mind, body and spirit rather than just the illness.

The detox process involves stopping consuming addictive substances, which are gradually washed from your system, leading to unpleasant, often painful side effects. Fortunately, our medical staff will be on hand to prescribe any required medication to deal with withdrawal symptoms.
You can then move on to the next phase of your ongoing rehabilitation programme. Through counselling, you can delve into the psychological characteristics of addiction.
During your stay at the residential centre, you may attend both individual and group addiction therapy, where you can talk about any ongoing problems or underlying concerns which could have a bearing on your dependency.
It’s also becoming more commonplace to employ cutting-edge therapies in the treatment of addiction, from Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Integrated Counselling Therapy to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, among others.
When you have completed detoxification and undergone rehab, you are ready to leave our clinic. But that doesn’t have to be the end of your treatment.
Addiction aftercare, in the form of regular therapy sessions, can help you overcome the mental aspects of addiction after completing one of our detox programmes. This effective way of overcoming alcoholism and drug addiction for good involves talking to a trained counsellor in an individual or group setting. They’ll discuss any issues which could play a role in your dependency and help pave a path to long-term recovery.

There are various other organisations offering support in the Kingston Upon Thames area. These include the NHS, Social Work Services, Charity Rehabs as well as public and private partnerships. Beyond that, there are fantastic group organisations like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous and family support groups.
Your local GP can also help, but as with most NHS services, they can be under financial pressure as well as lengthy waiting times.
As they are not addiction treatment specialists, GPs will generally refer individuals to local specialist NHS services, such as the Local Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADP) or Community Addiction Teams (CAT), all of which are fantastic services.
