Surrey Rehab 

The wooded county of Surrey is home to one of the best Gardens in the UK. Yet, similar to most regions in the country, Surrey has a growing number of people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

If you are looking for a Surrey rehab centre, look no further. This article will provide you with information on public and private rehab options in the area. 

Alcohol and drug addiction treatment options in Surrey 

The main addiction treatment options in Surrey are inpatient, outpatient, and home detox. 

1. Inpatient rehab/residential rehab 

In inpatient/residential rehab, the patients stay on-site and spend the night in the facility. This treatment option is associated with the best treatment outcomes for long-term recovery.

Since the patient stays at the facility, they can focus on addiction recovery without falling into temptation. 

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab provides you with a comprehensive addiction treatment programme.

This programme is customised to meet your needs and includes a dual diagnosis for patients with pre-existing mental health issues. 

Treatment begins with detox (detoxification), where the body gets rid of toxins from alcohol or drug addiction.

The medical staff may administer prescription drugs to help the patient safely manage the withdrawal symptoms. 

Detox usually lasts for about a week. Once you complete your detox, you'll proceed to various therapy sessions to help you deal with the psychological factors influencing the addiction.

You will engage in holistic therapies, group therapy, art therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, plus others. 

Our treatment centre offers various addictions, including gambling, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol, sex, and eating disorders. 

2. Outpatient treatment 

Outpatient Surrey rehab is available. This option is flexible as patients get to attend treatment during the day. Outpatient services are preferred after the patient completes detox.

At the outpatient Surrey rehab clinic, the patient gets counselling and therapy sessions. 

3. Home detox 

You can get home detox or alcohol home detox to break the drug or alcohol addiction cycle. This service is beneficial for those with a stable, supportive environment.

You get to work with an addiction experienced team that will provide medially assisted detox in the comfort of your home. 

A rehab clinic that provides home detox will give you access to medical and psychological support aimed to ensure that the clients health remains stable during the withdrawal process.

Once you complete your detox, you'll be required to participate in recovery support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous to lower your chances for relapse. 

Public & Private drug and alcohol rehab options 

There are public and private drug and alcohol addiction treatment options in Surrey and the areas near it. Public options are mainly accessed through your GP referral. 

The NHS does not provide residential treatment programmes. People seeking NHS rehab can only access outpatient services in community settings. 

In addition to this, some organisations provide free addiction treatment services. These services do not require a referral from your GP. 

Major NHS funding cuts make it difficult for anyone in need of addiction treatment to access residential rehabilitation. Luckily, there are several private residential rehab facilities with flexible payment terms. 

Private drug and alcohol rehab gives you a strong foundation in recovery. The level of care and support you receive during the rehab process will allow you to achieve wellness in every area of your life. 

Free, no-obligation alcohol addiction assessment 

The first step in alcohol or drug rehab is an assessment. Most treatment providers offer a free, confidential assessment to determine the most suitable treatment plans for each of their patients.

A complete mental and physical assessment provides insight into your physical and mental state. 

One of the no-obligation alcohol addiction assessment models we utilise is the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT's). 

The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDITs) 

The AUDIT tool was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO). This model was designed to identify persons with alcohol use disorder. (1)

AUDIT is a questionnaire with 10 items. Each item is assigned scores, and the scores will be added up at the end. 

Before you begin answering the questions, a professional will explain that you are about to answer questions involving your alcohol habits in the past year.

One of the questions is, "How often do you have a drink containing alcohol?" The options provided for this question are monthly or less, i.e., two times a month, 2 to 3 times a week, and four or more times a week. 

The questionnaire starts with general questions and progresses to more specific questions. The questions are designed to determine whether you meet the criteria for alcoholism based on the DSM-V manual. 

The total score is out of 40. Your performance will determine the type of alcohol rehab programme that will suit you. 

There are other assessment tools, such as: 

ASUS (Adult Substance Use Survey) 

This is an extensive questionnaire that assesses issues of alcohol and drug use. This tool also assesses mental health issues. 


This is a brief questionnaire used for the detection of alcohol problems. CAGE is not based on the DSM-IV and therefore does not distinguish between alcohol abuse and dependence.

However, the tool is effective at identifying problems of alcohol addiction. There are modifications of this assessment tool, e.g., CAGE-AID modification. 

Drug abuse screening test (DAST) 

This assessment tool is for drug abuse only. Sometimes, DAST is combined with AUDIT or other alcohol assessment tools to cover alcohol and drug-related problems. 

A good rehab facility provides dual diagnosis assessment to determine whether pre-existing mental health issues need treatment. Most people turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with mental health problems such as trauma, depression, anxiety, plus other issues.

As such, it is highly recommended that you seek a treatment centre that treats both substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions. 

What happens during alcohol rehab treatment in Surrey? 

What happens is that you go through the stages of rehab. These stages include: 

Medical detox 

The detox process aims to break the physical and psychological consequences of addiction. The physical dependence on drugs and alcohol leads to withdrawal symptoms once an individual stops using.

The withdrawal symptoms range from mild to severe and include symptoms such as: 

  • Nausea 
  • Seizures 
  • Hallucinations 
  • Anxiety and nervousness 
  • High blood pressure 

Detox is initiated during the first weeks at a rehab centre. A team of medical professionals oversees the detox process to ensure that the patient safely manages the withdrawal process. 


Rehabilitation focuses on the psychological aspects of addiction. It entails various therapies and counselling sessions conducted by professional addiction counsellors and therapists.

Therapy helps the individual get to the root causes of the addiction. Also, the patient gains knowledge and coping skills that will help them overcome cravings and temptations in their everyday life. 

Our rehab centre offers patients an extensive option in terms of therapies. We utilised one of the most widely used cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to change cognitive distortions. 

We also offer 12-steps facilitation and co-dependency counselling in family therapy to help the patient and their loved ones develop healthy relationships. 



It is essential to go to a private rehab facility with free aftercare services. Aftercare is also referred to as a relapse prevention plan. It is estimated that more than 30% of people relapse during their first year after treatment [2]. 

To help minimise the risk, look for a Surrey rehab facility that provides aftercare services. 

Adjusting to life post-treatment will require you to change your lifestyle, including your social life. You may have to change your location or your circle of friends.

You will also have to regularly meet with a counsellor and attend support group meetings to help you maintain your journey towards long-term recovery. 

As you reach the end of your treatment, an addiction specialist will work with you to craft an aftercare plan that will help you as you transition to your ordinary life.

Our doors remain open once you complete treatment at our Surrey rehab centre. The support we provide ensures that you don't get overwhelmed and relapse. 

Intervention services 

Intervention services are a good way to reach a loved one struggling with addiction. Leverage the best professional intervention approaches such as the CRAFT and traditional intervention approaches. 

The CRAFT intervention is a strategy that allows the close significant others (CSO) to reward a loved one when they choose to manage or overcome their addiction. 

Provide the traditional approach to intervention where the loved ones circle the individual with the addiction problem. Under the mediation of the professional, the loved ones air their concerns about the addiction. 

Seeking the assistance of a professional helps avoid conflict and disagreements that may arise when confronting a loved one.  

The professional guides the family in creating an empathetic environment that motivates the loved one to seek a rehab clinic.

How much does drug rehab cost in Surrey? 

The cost of rehab depends. Outpatient services cost less than residential rehab. If you opt for residential, the price that you'll pay depends on your length of stay. 

Furthermore, the accommodation type (single occupancy versus multi-occupancy) will influence the cost. 

A 28-day residential treatment costs around £6000. Some centres charge as much as £12,000 and £16,000 for the same programme. The longer you stay in treatment, the higher the cost.

These charges pay for accommodation, utilities, treatment, and other services that you get at the facility.
