Essex is a large county to the north east of London. Its proximity to the capital and geographical positioning mean that the majority of the population of Essex is relatively affluent, although parts of eastern Essex suffer from high levels of deprivation.
In 2015, the population of Essex was 1.43 million. The population of Essex is growing so fast that it was recorded at nearly 1.8 million in 2018. On the commuter belt from the city, it attracts London workers; research has shown that there is a correlation between growing numbers of city commuters and an influx of drug and alcohol misuse within the county.
At our private drug and alcohol rehab, Providence Projects, we have welcomed addicts from Essex from all types of backgrounds. We treat them all equally, whatever their particular circumstance.
Drugs in Essex
In all parts of Essex, drug and alcohol use is relatively commonplace. We have recently treated drug addicts from the Basildon, Chelmsford, Romford and Colchester areas. Over the last 5 years, there seems to have been a growing rise in heroin and cocaine addicts seeking drug rehab treatment from the county. These substances are highly addictive and because of their strength, many find it easier to become clean with our help.
The county’s Police have stated that drug dealers are moving from big cities to Essex, and that gangs are rife in Basildon, Southend and Canvey – and have been growing for the last five years.
Alcohol in Essex
Alcohol is both the most widely used and is very harmful, causing harm to both the individual and others. In 2018, it is estimated that around 350,000 adults that were drinking alcohol were at levels categorised as an increased risk or higher risk.
At the Providence Projects, we have experienced patterns of high levels of drinking in Essex. There has been an increase in alcohol misuse in Essex town centres including Colchester, Brentwood and Basildon, leading to violent and anti-social behaviour. Read more about symptoms of alcoholism here.
Drinking to excess can lead to some serious offences, including criminal damage, assault, drink driving and more – which can of course eventually lead to a criminal record.
In Essex, it’s estimated that a huge 40% of crime is influenced by alcohol; and a large number of assaults, criminal damage and domestic violence cases were found to be because of excessive drinking.

Detox, rehab and addiction treatment at The Providence Projects
Those people from Essex that have received treatment from The Providence Projects have found that they have reached a stage where they cannot go on with their addictions and live a normal life. Some have found that their addiction has affected their working lives so much that they can no longer keep their jobs – and the bills then become difficult to handle, and they reach financial difficulties.

Established in 1996, The Providence Projects is widely regarded as the leading affordable private rehab centre in the UK. Clients have visited us from Essex, all over the UK and around the world to receive our specialist help.

What is Alcohol Detox?
Alcohol Detox is extremely necessary for those who have become alcohol dependent. It is the very first stage of the rehabilitation and recovery process – and because detox can be a difficult process, it is important that the addict receives the correct medical help and support to ensure that the person seeking help is safe and comfortable during the withdrawal time. Alcohol detox at The Providence Projects includes 24-hour supervision to ensure that the first step to recovery is safe.
What can I expect to pay for alcohol detox?
The Providence Projects charges £5500 for a 4-week rehabilitation programme, including detox. The weekly charge after the first four weeks is £895.There are no hidden rehab costs, and we are very much up front with the bill payer.
As part of the private rehab costs at The Providence Projects, you will receive a full assessment prior to admission to identify all needs and requirements. On admission, you will meet with one of the doctors at The Providence Surgery to complete your assessment. At this time a detox regime will be agreed to ensure that withdrawal occurs comfortably and safely.
The Providence Projects’ alcohol rehabilitation programme is a comprehensive therapy programme to help stop your alcohol addiction and to develop your resilience to stay sober for a long-term recovery.
The programme is delivered by our excellent and highly-skilled counselling team and consists of: one-to-one counselling, group therapy, assignments, family therapy, workshops, complimentary therapies and other remedies tailored to suit the individual.
