Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Surrey
The thought of going to rehab may be a prospect that fills you with fear. It’s likely you consume alcohol and drugs to combat deeper psychological problems. Addiction thus becomes a form of self-medication to help you forget about mental troubles. Given your addiction allows you to escape, you are probably worried about the void that will be created when you finally give up your addiction.
When you attend one of our residential rehab centres in Surrey, you will be given the tools to address mental health problems so that you no longer need to rely on drugs and alcohol. The need to dull emotional problems with drugs and alcohol becomes redundant. This is because you are taught to achieve this aim through cognitive exercises and psychotherapy.

One major component of going to rehab involves a structured and medically assisted detox programme. When you take drugs and alcohol, your body may react badly to the withdrawal process. To help arrest withdrawal symptoms, you are given anti-withdrawal medication that allows you to detox without suffering these potentially fatal symptoms.
Before you go to rehab, you will undertake a thorough assessment. This assessment determines the severity of your addiction to drugs and alcohol. We also determine the existence of any psychiatric or physical illnesses you currently suffer from, and also the likely cause of your addiction. We use this information to assist us in selecting the most suitable rehab clinic for you in Surrey.
What happens during rehab?
When you decide to go to rehab, you must choose between a detox or a full rehabilitation programme. A detox programme may be completed in around 14 days, whilst a full rehab requires around 4-6 weeks to complete. Addiction is a disease of the mind. To address this ‘disease’, you must tackle the mental causes of addiction. To address these causes, you must be exposed to multiple therapy sessions.
To achieve this, you will need to remain in a rehab centre for around a month. Merely addressing the physical symptoms of addiction through a detox programme is rarely enough to promote long term recovery.
Breaking the cycle of addiction is widely considered to be the ‘easy part’ of going to rehab. Staying off drugs and alcohol for the long term is much more problematic. To achieve your long term recovery goals, you must consider staying in a rehab centre for at least a month. This is then followed up with structured aftercare for at least 12 months. During this time, you will return to the Surrey rehab centre for therapy on an outpatient basis.
