Why Choose a Private Drug Rehab?
Drug addiction is a chronic and progressive mental illness, characterised by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite negative and harmful consequences. However, the condition is also treatable, and recovery is possible with the right treatment and professional support from trained addiction counsellors.
Our drug addiction treatment model is designed to address the psychological issues underpinning the addiction, and to help the individual develop the skills to remain clean and sober long-term. There are many other benefits to entering a private drug rehab programme within a residential drug rehab centre, as opposed to attempting a home detox, a community outpatient programme, or trying to stop using drugs on your own.
- Sober transportation to the Providence Projects treatment centre
- Medically-managed detox (if required), with 24-hour professional support and monitoring
- Comprehensive rehabilitation programme, using the latest evidence-based therapies
- Family therapy and family programme
- A whole host of holistic therapies and exercise classes
- Aftercare & sober management services (addiction recovery coach)
- A chance to rebuild damaged relationships
- The opportunity to improve physical as well as mental health
- An intensive relapse prevention programme
- Build interpersonal skills and strong support networks
- Learn to live life free of drugs
- Learning how to enjoy life again!

The Process of Drug Rehabilitation
Many people looking for drug addiction treatment will wonder what actually goes on inside an addiction rehab centre. There are many different aspects to our drug treatment programme, which has evolved and developed over the past 25 years we have been running. All of these elements are necessary to successfully treat drug addiction. Our clients will attend our drug rehab programme for anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months, the length of time needed is different for every individual. Generally speaking however, the longer a person can spend in treatment the better.
Drug Rehab at the Providence Projects consists of:
- An assessment of your drug use
- The admissions process
- Medical Detoxification (if required)
- A drug rehab programme which consists of therapy, workshops and fun activities
- Family Support Workshops
- Aftercare & recovery services (optional)
Drug Addiction Assessment
The Providence Projects offers free and immediate assessment for those looking to seek treatment at our drug rehab centre. These rehab assessments take no longer than 40 minutes, and are carried out either over the telephone or face-to-face. It is an opportunity not only for our team of counsellors and doctors to assess an individual’s suitability for our rehab setting, but also for potential clients to see if we are the right place for them.
These consultations are completely free of charge, and our dedicated addiction counsellors will answer any questions you may have about drug rehab, hopefully alleviating any fears too. You may have questions about addiction in general, how the drug rehab programme works or what a detox involves. You may also have practical questions regarding visiting hours, duration of the programme or what a day in treatment looks like.
The assessment process can be arranged immediately, and will cover a range of topics such as:
- Current and previous drug use
- Previous detox/rehab attempts
- Medical history
- Family history
- Physical health
- Mental health
- Goals you would like to achieve
At the end of the assessment, we are in a position to make recommendations to you and your loved ones. If for any reason we are not suitable for you, we will be able to recommend alternative options. However, in most instances we are suitable and are able to arrange immediate admission into the drug detox and rehab programme.

Admissions for Drug Rehab
Once you’ve completed your assessment and have been offered a place at the Providence Projects, our team will aim to arrange immediate admission or admission on a date that best suits you. The process is simple. Our team of friendly admissions advisors will explain everything you need to know, what to bring on your first, day, the time you should arrive and what you can expect to happen on arrival. Generally we ask clients to bring no more than one large holdall/suitcase with comfortable clothes, toiletries, and some exercise gear too! We also ask that you bring with you two forms of ID, and any medication you are currently prescribed in clearly labelled packaging. Laptops and iPads are not permitted unless absolutely necessary, but you are welcome to bring books and your mobile phone.
Arriving at the Providence Projects Treatment Centre
On the day of admission, you will complete a full assessment and induction with one of our specialist addiction counsellors. They will help you settle in, explain how the programme works and run through any paperwork with you. The final stage of the assessment and induction process will involve a consultation with one of the Doctors from our partners at The Providence Surgery. You will run through your general health with particular focus on your drug use so that any potential detox regime can be agreed.
Each and every person is unique. So each person requires a different approach, depending on the nature of their drug use and potential withdrawal symptoms. Some do not require a medical detox at all and have no physical dependency, whereas others will require a comprehensive medical detox regime. All detox regimes used at The Providence Projects are evidence-based approaches following NICE guidelines. For detox from heroin, the primary medication used is buprenorphine (Subutex). Our aim is to ensure that you are safe and comfortable throughout your entire detox.

Drug Rehab Programme
If you do not require a medically assisted detox or have successfully completed a drug detox programme, the next stage of the drug rehab process is therapy.
Our Drug Rehab Programme is designed to treat the individual holistically by using the best therapies in conjunction with workshops and fun activities.
The programme includes daily group therapy, individual counselling, motivational interviewing and CBT, as well as an intensive relapse prevention programme and a range of workshops. Music and art therapies, as well as a whole host of holistic therapies, are also on offer. Addiction Workshops cover a range of topics such as:
- Stress management
- Relapse prevention
- Families and significant others
- Health & wellbeing
Dual Diagnosis Treatment (Mental Health Problems & Drug Addiction)
The term “dual diagnosis” refers to an individual with both a mental health and substance abuse issue. As part of an initial drug addiction assessment, a counsellor would have spoken to you about your mental health history.
Dual diagnosis (drug addiction and depression) requires specialised treatment to treat both co-occurring conditions. Our aim is to help you manage your mental health and avoid relapse during times of depression or anxiety.
If you do suffer from depression or anxiety, please let our addiction specialists know during your assessment so they can create a personalised plan for you.
Paying for Drug Rehab
We accept all major cards as form of payment. Upon arrival at our drug rehab centre, the full amount will need to be paid before treatment can begin.
We charge a fixed price for our drug addiction treatment programme which includes a medically-assisted drug detox. If you wish to extend your stay to focus on your recovery beyond the initial 28-day programme, we charge a fixed weekly cost as highlighted in the below table.
|Cost of rehab for 4 weeks including detox||£5,995|
|Weekly cost after first 4 weeks||£995|
What Happens After Drug Rehab?
It is a huge achievement to successfully complete drug rehabilitation treatment. You will have a few months clean and sober under your belt, and be equipped with a toolbox full of coping mechanisms to help you avoid relapse and maintain your recovery. you should be incredibly proud of the steps you have taken to recover from your addiction, however recovery is a lifelong process. It requires sustained effort, discipline and honesty to remain clean and sober, and there will undoubtedly be challenges and obstacles ahead. Indeed many people say that going to drug rehab is ‘discovery’ and what comes after is recovery.
Life after drug rehabilitation can provoke fear and anxiety in individuals, as they adjust to life without the safety, structure and routine of a residential rehab centre. That’s why our team of addiction counsellors work with every client to develop a strong relapse prevention plan prior to them leaving, as well as offering a variety of bespoke aftercare provisions to suit the individual.
Our sober management services are there to provide additional support during the early stages of drug addiction recovery:
- Ongoing therapy
- Sober coaching services
- Family Support workshops
Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment Services
In addition to the services we can provide you following your drug treatment programme, we recommend the following support services offered by the NHS, charities & support groups.
NHS Drug Treatment Services
You may decide to continue therapy or attend community support services following your residential drug rehab programme. The NHS keeps a directory of all of the local services within your local area.
Drug Addiction Counselling
You may decide to continue therapy with a trained addiction therapist. The BACP website has a directory of private addiction counsellors and therapists in your local area here.
Drug addiction doesn’t just impact the individual, family therapy can help individuals and their loved ones heal from the damage drug use has caused. It can help to repair broken relationships and build new, healthy boundaries. During the early stages of drug addiction recovery, family members are crucial for helping individuals remain focused.
There are a number of drug addiction support groups in the UK, some of which follow the 12-step model while others (such as SMART) take a more scientific approach to addiction recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous and SMART recovery provide daily meetings throughout the UK.
In additional to these, FAMANON is a support group for families that operates weekly meetings – http://famanon.org.uk/

Where do I start?? I truly believe that The Providence gave me my life back. I have been to treatment facilities before but some about Provy grabbed me this time. The staff were incredibly loving and tolerant with me and my peers throughout my whole treatment process. Today being 5 and half years clean and sober since my Provy days I can now call some friends. If you want somewhere to love you and guide you back to what your true essence is Providence Project is it. See more
