Part of London’s West End and an area in the City of Westminster, Soho has a number of drug and alcohol rehab centres close by – whether you’re looking for inpatient or outpatient facilities.

Addiction Treatment Options in Soho London

At Addiction Advocates, we’re one of the UK’s leading alcohol and drug rehab referral services, working with private rehabs to help individuals to get their life back on track. Just a short drive from Soho in Watford lies Cassiobury Court, one of the private rehab centres we work with. However, we can also help you to find a place at rehab further afield.

If you’re looking for a rehab centre for yourself or a loved one, there are a few ways you can get a referral. The first way is by booking a GP appointment for the individual. They’ll need to be registered with a local practice, but there are lots of GPs in Soho taking on new patients.

At this appointment, the GP can discuss symptoms, provide medication and outline the types of treatment available. They can also make the first referral to treatment. Alternatively, at Addiction Advocates, our phone line is always open. As the UK’s leading rehab referral service, we’ve helped hundreds of people to access the support they need. Plus, we work with rehab centres close to Soho and those elsewhere in the UK to ensure that individuals find the proper care and treatment they need.


Outpatient Vs Inpatient Rehab in Soho London

Similar to other areas in the UK, if you’re looking for rehab in Soho, you can choose between inpatient and outpatient facilities. Inpatient treatment, which is the most common type of rehab that we refer individuals to, is where you receive treatment at a clinic and then stay in a private room on-site for the duration of the programme. Outpatient treatment is where individuals return home to recover after receiving treatment at a clinic. This is the type of rehab that the NHS typically offers.

People’s main concern regarding inpatient treatment is that you’ll be required to stay away from home. On the other hand, outpatient treatment is ideal for those with additional responsibilities and commitments. It doesn’t come without its challenges, though. If you are attending rehab on an outpatient basis, you need to consider how it will return to familiar places where drugs and alcohol may be readily available.

Inpatient stays offer the best chance of recovery and long-term success. While you might be worried about being away from home, think of it like a respite and know that you’re making a good decision for your future.


What Happens at Rehab?

While every rehab centre will be different, the aim is typically the same –  to treat a physical addiction as well as any behavioural symptoms. At Addiction Advocates, we work with leading rehab centres around the UK which specialise in drug addiction, alcohol addiction, behavioural addiction and dual diagnosis which is where there is a mental health condition too.

When you first arrive at rehab, you’ll be assessed by a doctor. Any symptoms will be monitored, and you’ll also be prescribed medication if needed. Before starting any treatment, it’s important that you detox from drugs and alcohol. Lots of people try to detox at home. It’s common to experience side effects and withdrawal symptoms, including shaking, sweating, and muscle aches. These can become more severe and include hallucinations and seizures. A medically-assisted drug and alcohol detox is the safest way to do so and one of the biggest benefits of attending rehab.

Once the detox process is complete, it’s time to start a treatment programme. Again, this will depend on the rehab centre you choose but typically it includes talking therapy, creative therapy and family therapy in group and individual settings. Most rehab centres also encourage involvement in wellbeing activities throughout the week. This typically includes yoga, meditation and diet workshops.

As an inpatient, you’ll have your own private room, and all meals are taken care of too. Friends and family members are also encouraged to visit, when appropriate.


Is There Aftercare with Private Rehab?

Local support groups are essential to your recovery – whether you attend rehab as an inpatient or outpatient. Towards the end of your programme, you’ll work with trained professionals on relapse prevention and aftercare. You’ll also be given details of local support groups in Soho. This includes Alcoholics Anonymous AA and Narcotics Anonymous NA meetings.

If you’re looking for Soho support groups, there are meetings just outside of Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Tottenham Court Road. Not only are these community groups a great way to stay on the right path, but they allow you to meet and connect with people in the same position as you.

At Addiction Advocates, our friendly and professional team is always here too – whether you’re the individual recovering, a friend or family member. Our advice line can help you access the support and care you need, even after private drug and alcohol rehab.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is relapse prevention planning?
Essentially, relapse prevention planning is a method of treatment in which trained therapists prepare you for a life of sobriety post-rehab. During this planning, you will delve deeper into the triggers and reasons for you turning to drugs and alcohol. Following this, you will work towards developing mental and physical techniques which you can turn to whenever you feel that you may be at risk of using again.
How To Help A Family Member With Addiction?
Staging a family intervention in order to convince someone to get help can be a big step. Also, if it is not done correctly, with care, compassion, and professional guidance, then you only risk pushing your loved one further away. Addiction Advocates can provide assistance and advice with family and friend referrals, so reach out to us for guidance before trying to stage an alcohol intervention or substance abuse intervention.
What Are The Benefits Of Residential Rehab?
Residential rehab boasts one of the most successful recovery rates for addicts in the United Kingdom. This is because residential rehab allows you to break from your daily routine and reassess your life from a neutral location. Being able to look back upon your daily life from an outside perspective with a professional therapist will mean you can identify which aspects of your life need changing much easier. Furthermore, at a residential rehab you will not have access to drugs or alcohol which means that your chances of relapsing are slim to none.
