If you’re reading this it’s likely that you’re concerned about your own or a loved one’s alcohol use. You may be feeling as though there’s no way out of the vicious cycle of drinking every day. We’re here to tell you that real change is possible. With the right support and guidance from our trained addiction counsellors, recovery from alcoholism is possible for everyone, no matter how dire your current situation may seem.
Alcohol rehabilitation at the Providence Projects is the perfect way to start your recovery. For over 25 years, our rehab centre has helped thousands of people to stop drinking through a combination of medical and therapeutic interventions. As part of treatment, we will conduct a medical assessment and provide you with a medically-assisted detox programme if necessary, to make that transition from detox to therapy as comfortable as possible.

Signs you Need Help
Alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, describes the problematic relationship between the individual and alcohol. It is a dangerous and progressive illness that will not go away without treatment.
Denial is often the first barrier to seeking help for alcohol use disorder. In the UK alone, studies have shown that over 600,000 people meet the criteria for alcoholism. Sadly, at least 500,000 of these have never sought help.
If you or someone you love is consuming alcohol beverages in the morning through to evening, this could be a sign that treatment is needed.
There are many signs of alcohol addiction, for example, hiding or concealing alcohol consumption, missing important events in favour of drinking, poor work performance, dysfunctional relationships with partners and/or kids, obsessively thinking about the next drink, and signs of irritability or anger when attempting to stop are all signs of a drinking problem.
Alcohol dependence, which refers to the physical dependence on alcohol caused by long-term binge-drinking, may require specialist treatment to avoid complications associated with alcohol withdrawal. Part of the healing process involves treating the physical dependence (alcohol dependence) and the psychological dependence (alcohol addiction). Private rehab offers the best solution to alcohol addiction recovery because it incorporates both medical intervention (detox) and therapeutic intervention (rehab therapy) in a safe and secure environment.
If you are still unsure as to whether you or a loved one need treatment, we offer a free alcohol addiction assessment to help identify the best course of action.
Alcohol Addiction Assessment
We offer a free alcohol addiction assessment to anyone concerned with their drinking habits. The assessment will take no longer than 30 minutes and will be carried out by a trained addiction counsellor. The telephone assessment will cover questions about your history with alcohol, mental health and use of other substances.
You will be assessed by one of our doctors when you arrive, who will agree with you an alcohol detox regime to ensure you are comfortable and safe throughout the detox phase. You will be supported and supervised by staff during this period. In conjunction with your detox, you will be engaging with the comprehensive rehab programme on offer from Day 1.
Detox (if required)
While there are many types of rehab programmes & treatment options in the UK – such as detox facilities, community treatment, 12-step fellowship meetings and home detox services, a fully residential treatment programme will always offer the most comprehensive and structured form of support.
Our treatment programme has been carefully designed to help individuals address their alcoholism and the underlying issues at play, as well as to develop the skills needed to stay sober long term.
The programme lays a solid foundation upon which you can build your recovery. As all of our clients are unique, treatment plans are tailored to the individual and can vary in length and intensity. Primary treatment will range from 4-6 weeks.
Your bespoke treatment programme will include:
- Medically-assisted alcohol detox (if required)
- 1-1 counselling
- Structured group therapy
- Exercise Classes
- Workshops & Lectures
- Fun activities
- Alternative therapies
- Music & Art therapy
- Aftercare & Family support
Benefits of Residential Treatment
There are many benefits to residential treatment for alcohol addiction:
- Immediate admissions, no waiting times for treatment.
- Sober Transportation to our treatment centre from anywhere in the UK.
- Opportunity to undertake alcohol detox safely with professional support
- Opportunity to address underlying issues or trauma that led to addictive behaviours
- Comprehensive rehabilitation programme, designed and delivered by expert addiction therapists
- A supportive environment and a great location to start your recovery
- Aftercare provisions and family support services.
Our programme has successfully helped thousands of individuals to recover from alcoholism since our doors opened in 1996. Our treatment model incorporates the latest, evidence-based therapies, such as group therapy, CBT, motivational interviewing, and relapse prevention.
Secondary Alcohol Addiction Treatment Programme
The secondary phase of our alcohol rehabilitation programme at the Providence Projects, is a great way to solidify the progress you have made during the primary treatment phase. This is optional and will be offered to you before and during your treatment.
This is an extension of our primary treatment programme and costs £1,200 per week.
Statistics show that clients who attend extended rehab programmes are less likely to relapse in the future, and so our secondary alcohol treatment programmes are designed to offer additional protection at a reduced cost per week.
Our admissions team are here to support you through the alcohol recovery process. Speak to us via phone, email or Livechat today.
Preventing a Relapse
What happens when clients leave alcohol rehab is just as important as the progress they make whilst they’re with us. As such, we offer a range of aftercare & relapse prevention programmes here at the Providence Projects. As clients come towards the end of their alcohol addiction treatment, they will work with their focal therapist to develop an individualised aftercare plan and relapse prevention plan. This will vary considerably depending on the nature of their alcoholism, their career and relationship status, family set up, and safety of living accommodation.
All these factors and more will be taken into account before agreeing an appropriate course of aftercare. As well as our dedicated aftercare provisions, the Providence Projects also works closely with several alcohol and drug addiction treatment providers across the UK.
I have just spent 28 days at the Providence Projects for alcoholism. It has been such a journey. I was rather frightened when I first entered, but this programme is extraordinarily well thought out.
Support for Families
Alcoholism is a family illness. The ripple effects of this disease mean it can often be more detrimental to family members than to the alcoholic themselves. As part of our comprehensive alcohol rehab programme, we place great emphasis on including the family in their loved one’s treatment, as research has shown that support and involvement from family members can make all the difference to a person’s recovery.
Family meetings are offered to all clients, where our team will facilitate a counselling session for both the recovering person and their family. This can be extremely beneficial to all parties: by communicating honestly and openly, past issues can be addressed, and the whole family can start to heal.
Providence Family Day is the latest addition to our rehab programme, designed specifically for family members and significant others of those who are residents in our treatment facility. This is a worthwhile opportunity, for family members to meet staff and other families who have had similar experiences, to get support, identification, and to develop a greater understanding of addiction. Topics such as setting boundaries, roles within the family and relapse prevention are all covered through a series of educational workshops, group tasks and presentations.
We aim to make our services accessible to everyone, regardless of geography. That’s why our focus is to provide online and skype counselling, as well as virtual workshops and presentations about addiction, to those limited in terms of travel.
Paying for Treatment
We understand that cost is an important factor when seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one. Most alcohol rehab facilities aren’t cheap, but when the Providence Projects opened in 1996, our founder Steve Spiegel was determined to provide affordable, effective and high-quality care. We have made it our mission for addiction treatment to be accessible to as many people in need as possible.
Our rehab prices are £6,995 for the first 4 weeks, then there is a weekly charge of £1,200 after the first 4 weeks if you choose to stay longer.

NHS Support Services for Alcoholism
Contrary to popular belief, the NHS does not provide alcohol rehab. However, the NHS does provide local outpatient addiction treatment services.
There are two ways of funding rehab: the first is to pay privately and the other is to apply for local authority funding. This involves engaging with your local drug and alcohol service and making an application for detox and rehab funding.
This may secure you a place at a private rehab for alcohol detox and treatment, but the process is often lengthy and by no means a guarantee.
