We must treat addiction like the serious disease that it is.
It’s an extremely complex condition which can have devastating effects on your physical and psychological health, not to mention damage your relationships with loved ones, ruin your career and destroy your finances; there really are no positives to drug or alcohol addiction.
Any attempts to overcome your substance abuse without the support from a recognised drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre are highly unlikely to be successful.
It’s not possible to recover from an addiction using medication alone, you require the expertise of trained addiction specialists to help you overcome your physical and psychological connection to alcohol or drugs.
This is why there are so many failed recoveries when you don’t consult a private drug and alcohol rehab like ours in Newham.
Residential addiction treatment isn’t easy, however, it’s a life-changing, rewarding experience like no other; we guarantee you won’t regret.
Are you in denial about your drug or alcohol abuse?
It’s very common for people who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol to drugs to be in denial about their condition. Any effects they’re feeling as a result of their addiction such as anxiety, depression, weight loss, insomnia, etc. are likely to be downplayed as they act as though it’s not happening.
One of the biggest challenges of your recovery could be to actually admit to yourself and to others around you that you have a problem which you need help with. Once you’ve taken this brave step, your journey to a life free from alcohol or drugs can begin; you’re not in this alone.
In our experience, we’ve also seen many cases of dual diagnosis. This is where someone who is suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction is also struggling with mental health issues.
In some cases, your mental health issues could have influenced you to begin abusing drugs or alcohol as a form of coping mechanism.
Or alternatively, excessive substance abuse could have had a significant impact on your psychological well-being, leaving you with mental health issues.
Either way, a dual diagnosis can severely affect your ability to make logical decisions, making it quite difficult to function in daily life. Our expert team are highly experienced in designing treatment programmes specifically for a dual diagnosis, so don’t feel as though you can’t be helped.
Whilst you might not be able to recognise the negative impact your addiction is having on your own life, you might be able to accept that your harmful behaviours are damaging the lives of those around you, particularly the ones that care about you most. Let us help you, help them.

Treatments We Offer
All our treatment programmes are completely personalised to each client and include a mixture of psychological and well-being therapies which are all evidence-based.
Some of the therapies we offer are drug and alcohol detoxification, cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management, motivational interviewing, trauma and abuse counselling, bereavement counselling, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, PTSD counselling, mediation therapy, and family intervention.
We combine these more traditional therapies with therapies which focus on taking care of your well-being. These include relaxation and sleep management, nutritional supplement therapy, art, drama and music therapy, low level laser therapy, mindfulness, acu-puncture and acu-detox, and self-help.
This comprehensive programme ensures you receive a holistic approach to your residential addiction treatment.
Do we offer a drug and alcohol detoxification?
Prior to starting with any of the above therapies, we’ll likely recommend a drug and alcohol detoxification to remove the harmful toxins from your body.
We understand that detoxing can be quite uncomfortable, however we wouldn’t suggest it if it wasn’t such an integral part of your recovery.
Not only does it prepare you for a life without alcohol or drugs but detoxing also ensures that your subsequent therapies are as effective as they can be.
As we reduce your intake of alcohol or drugs, you may experience some with drawl symptoms. These can range from mild nausea to more severe symptoms such as insomnia, seizures, or delirium tremens (the DT’s), which is why it’s so important to undergo detoxification in a controlled and safe environment where a professional team can take care of you.
At our drug and alcohol rehab in Newham, we will monitor your progress 24/7, making sure you’re safe and secure throughout the duration of your detox.
We strongly advise against any attempts to detox at home without the support of medical professionals. It’s possible that you may require prescribed medication to aid you through the detox process which our expert team can carefully administer.
What happens once you’ve completed your residential addiction treatment?
We continue to offer our support through our dedicated drug and alcohol aftercare programme upon your return home. This is completely free and covers the first 12 months after leaving our rehab centre.
During the first year after your treatment is when you’re most likely to relapse as adjusting back into homelife can sometimes be quite difficult.
Our aftercare team will be there to help you in any way that they can. They can provide ongoing drug and alcohol relapse prevention sessions, cognitive behavioural therapy or recommend local support groups to aid your recovery.
We also provide sessions where we help family members build a strong, stable support network, enabling them to continue your recovery at home.
