Drug & Alcohol Rehabs in Newham

Drug and alcohol addiction is a significant problem in the lives of millions of individuals and families in the UK and around the world.

In Newham alone, around 1,000 adults are in contact with drug and alcohol addiction treatment centres every year, however the number of people who struggle with addiction problems is undoubtedly much higher.

Some evidence of this comes from March of 2023 when 150 drug trafficking charges and 131 class A and B drug charges were made in Newham.

In just a single month, this many arrests in connection with illegal substances indicate that many people are suffering in Newham without seeking help for their substance use disorder, and given the legality of alcohol, there are likely to be many more struggling with alcohol addiction.

So, if you are finding yourself drinking more than usual, losing control of your alcohol or drug use, or otherwise in need of rehab for a long-standing addiction, then explore your options for drug and alcohol rehab in Newham today.

If you drink or partake in drugs socially or on a casual basis, it can be difficult to know when casual use becomes a dependence.

There are indications we can look out for however.

When the occasional drink on a Friday night turns into drinks throughout the week however, this is one indication that you might be going down the road of alcohol dependency.

Some of the key signs of alcohol or drug addiction to look out for in yourself or your loved ones is:

Get Help Now: How to Get a Drug and Alcohol Rehab Referral

The sooner you seek help for your addiction, the sooner you can live the life you really want to instead of being trapped in the cycle.

So the first step to getting into drug and alcohol rehab in Newham is to get a referral for drug and alcohol treatment.

There are different types of referral depending on which rehab clinic you are seeking treatment from.

The main referral types include:

  • Self referral
  • Friends and family referral
  • Professional referral (by a GP, social worker or other professional body)

Many drug and alcohol treatment centres accept self referrals, which are the easiest form of referral as you can simply get in touch with the rehab yourself and discuss your need for treatment.

If you have a loved one that you are helping to get into treatment, family or friend referral can help you to get them the help they need.

However, you might come across treatment centres that only accept professional referrals, in which case you will need to speak to your GP, support worker or another professional in order to get a referral for treatment.

How Rehab Works: Drug and Alcohol Detox in Newham


After you get a referral (or refer yourself) for drug and alcohol rehab in Newham, you will then attend your initial assessment to develop a plan for treatment.

This will consist of you and your case worker, who will explain treatment options and how the overall recovery process will work.

A personalised treatment plan will then be made with you, which is most likely going to include a detox period followed by a course of addiction therapies.

Detox is the first part of drug and alcohol rehab, and is the stage when the patient first stops taking the addictive substance.

When you have a substance dependency and first stop using drugs or drinking, the body takes some time to fully adjust to life without the substance and recover from its dependency on it.

Therefore, this detox period is also when withdrawal symptoms will begin and will be at their worst, peaking before subsiding for the rest of the recovery period.

A detox therefore takes around 7-10 days, within which you are likely to experience the withdrawal symptoms.

The types of withdrawal symptoms you have will depend on the substance/s you are dependent upon, as well as the severity of your addiction and individual differences.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms and Medical Detox

The withdrawal symptoms for some substances such as alcohol and opioids however, can be so severe that they should be medically managed in a rehab clinic. Some of the withdrawal symptoms can even be fatal, so staying safe during detox is essential.

If you are wanting to put an end to your alcohol addiction, then make sure to consult a drug and alcohol rehab in Newham before attempting to detox from alcohol.

Withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, nausea, vomiting, irritability and headaches might be able to be managed at home and/or through a non-medical detox.

These are more common symptoms in mild-moderate alcohol addiction, and although sometimes medically managed, are not as dangerous as severe withdrawal symptoms.

However, more severe withdrawal symptoms such as confusion, seizures, hallucinations, a fast heart beat and a fever can result in a coma or even death, so these need to be monitored on an inpatient basis by medical staff.

Medications which are used within medical detox for alcohol might include Acamprosate or Naltrexone to reduce cravings or Chlordiazepoxide (e.g. Librium) for anxiety and agitation.

Following your detox period, you will then attend regular addiction therapy treatment sessions, which will last around 3 weeks (on an inpatient treatment programme) and help you to manage your addiction physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically.

Residential Treatment in Newham: What Happens?

Individual therapy

When you choose residential treatment at a Newham rehab clinic, you’ll live there for the duration of your treatment programme.

You’ll complete the detox process, which involves ridding your body of all traces of alcohol toxins, and undergo psychological therapy.

Both are equally important and will ensure that you stand the best chance of overcoming alcoholism for good.

Some people choose to undergo treatment on an outpatient basis, but at Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we don’t necessarily recommend this.

Returning home each night after you’ve received treatment can be risky, particularly as you’ll be more likely to be tempted to drink alcohol when you’re in familiar surroundings.

Plus, if you do experience any serious side effects as a result of withdrawing from alcohol, you won’t have a team of medical experts on hand to assist you.

The process of alcohol detox can be dangerous and is best carried out under the supervision of medical professionals.

What Drug and Alcohol Treatments Are Available in Newham?


When you attend your initial assessment before detox, the different treatment options will be discussed with you and it will be decided how, when and what addiction therapies you will be having.

You might have one type of addiction therapy, or a combination of therapies depending on your needs

Some of the most successful addiction therapies which are used in drug and alcohol rehab in Newham include the following:

Addiction Counselling

Talking therapy

Counselling is a general term used to refer to one-to-one treatment, which involves the patient talking about their addiction with a counsellor, working through their emotions, thoughts and motivations when it comes to their substance use.

Addiction counselling provides a judgement free, confidential space wherein the patient and counsellor can work together to find out where the addiction is rooted and to find healthy coping skills to replace the need for the addictive substance.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

A group therapy session

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on patients analysing and challenging their thought patterns when it comes to their addiction.

By changing the way patients view their addictions, and introducing more positive thought processes, they can change the behaviours that are negatively impacting their life.

This is a successful therapeutic method, often used in addiction treatment as well as for other mental disorders such as anxiety and depression.

It is particularly useful in treatment for alcohol addiction and cannabis dependency, and can be done one-to-one, in a group setting or online.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

Another type of behavioural therapy similar to CBT is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, which also focuses on helping patients to change their behaviours.

However, DBT engages more with emotion than cognitive, so rather than changing thought patterns, DBT helps patients to regulate their emotions.

Emotions are the driving force of a lot of behaviours, particularly for people who have comorbid mental health disorders such as borderline personality disorder, therefore DBT can be very helpful in treatment for people who struggle with emotional regulation.

Family Therapy

Group Therapy

Other addiction therapies such as family therapy are also available for people who have loved ones who would benefit from being involved in the rehabilitation process.

Often family members can also struggle with addiction problems, and the relationships between family members can be challenged by addiction.

Family therapy helps to mend broken relationships between family members, explore shared trauma which may relate to the development of an addiction and encourage loved ones to discuss their experiences for mutual understanding.

Holistic Therapies

Holistic therapies and mindfulness take a different approach, treating the patient as a whole and engaging the mind and body in different ways to relieve stress, learn skills and encourage a lifestyle change rather than focussing on addiction alone.

The treatment options open to you might vary depending on the type of treatment you have and how it is funded, however the Rehab 4 Alcoholism team is more than happy to discuss addiction therapies to find the right drug and alcohol rehab in Newham to help you.

How Long Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham Last?

A roman numerals clock on a panelled wall

Addiction treatments need to allow enough time for patients to adjust to being without the substance and also learn the tools they need to manage their addiction.

Therefore the minimum amount of time recommended for inpatient addiction treatment is 28 days, encompassing a 7-10 day detox and 3 weeks of addiction therapies.

If you are attending drug and alcohol rehab in Newham on an outpatient basis however, you might have a longer course of treatment.

This is because outpatient treatment can be less intense than inpatient, and therefore the treatment sessions can be fairly spread out e.g. 1-2 times per week.

Therefore some outpatient treatment programmes can last 6-8 weeks, with the patient having more independence in their recovery and attending sessions less frequently.

In the case of outpatient support and aftercare services such as 12 step programmes, people can attend for 90 days or more.

Sometimes a patient will only attend an inpatient detox for 7-10 days without additional therapies, however this is often when a patient has had treatment previously and just needs help getting back on their feet after a relapse.

If you require additional support, then you could stay in addiction rehab for up to 3 months. There is also the option to stay in a halfway house or sober living home if you are also struggling in other areas such as housing and employment.

How Much Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham Cost?


It is no secret that rehabilitation for addiction can be expensive, as there is a lot that goes into treating someone struggling with substance use disorder.

Private drug and alcohol rehab in Newham costs around £1,000-£4,000 per week, and a full course of inpatient treatment for 28 days could set you back £4,000-£16,000.

If you want a more high end experience which could include private rooms, good food and access to gym, spa or swimming pool facilities, then you could pay up to £20,000 for your stay in private rehab.

However, there is another option for people who do not want or cannot afford to go private.

The NHS offers free drug and alcohol Rehab in Newham so you can get help no matter what your financial situation is.

There is also the chance that your health insurance covers a private rehab stay, as some insurance companies cover certain addiction treatments with some policies even covering a full 28 day inpatient programme.

Another option includes charities which offer free or low cost addiction treatments to people in need.

NHS or Private Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham?

Doctor with clipboard

There are benefits and costs to both private and NHS funding for addiction treatment, however finding the right option for you is key.

Both types of treatment are effective in helping with addiction recovery, and your treatment will be conducted by mental health professionals who are trained in addiction.

To help you in weighing up your options, we have gathered the main differences between NHS and private rehab so you know what to expect.

Cost of NHS and Private Rehab

  • NHS rehab is free to all UK residents so you never have to pay for treatment.
  • Private rehab costs £4,000-£20,000 for a 28 day course of residential treatment.

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab Availability

  • NHS inpatient spaces are very limited. Most NHS treatment is done on an outpatient basis
  • Private drug and alcohol rehab in Newham has ample inpatient and outpatient availability

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Waiting Lists in Newham

  • NHS waiting lists can be between 3 weeks and 6 months long, with some treatments coming with waiting lists of up to 1 year.
  • Most private rehab centres are able to take in patients within 24-48 hours.

Addiction Therapy Options & Flexibility of Treatment

  • NHS addiction treatment has a limited amount of therapies on offer and you will have less flexibility in your treatment plan.
  • You will have more freedom over the type of treatment you have and where you have it, as well as a wider variety of addiction treatment options.

Private Rooms in Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham

  • NHS rehab is often restricted in terms of accommodation and facilities for inpatient treatment, with shared rooms usually being the standard.
  • Private rehab centres have private and shared rooms available as well as optional extras such as dining packages and en-suites. However, this will mean that you will pay more for these options.

Will I Have Inpatient or Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham?

Recovery Groups

Inpatient and outpatient are the two main ways of delivering addiction treatment, which primarily describe where the patient will live whilst treatment takes place.

When it comes to any medical treatment, including addiction treatment, this is something which needs a lot of consideration.

Making sure that a patient is well cared for and has access to necessary medical care but also is able to have some independence in their recovery if possible ensures the best outcome for treatment.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Newham is most suited to people who have moderate to severe substance use disorder, and/or has other health issues, a co-occuring mental health disorder or does not have a suitable home environment for recovery.

During inpatient rehab, the patient will live in the rehabilitation clinic for the duration of their treatment programme.

This includes staying overnight in their own bed at the clinic, and attending sessions in the rehab centre as well. This is ideal when the patient may need round the clock medical care available, or when they would benefit from time away from their home environment.

During outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Newham, the patient lives at home and stays there overnight, only coming into the rehab clinic for treatment sessions.

This option is suitable for people who are struggling with a mild to moderate addiction, have a strong support system at home and are healthy enough to go through treatment without constant access to medical care.

Intensive Outpatient and Part Hospitalisation

Adventure Therapy

However, there are degrees of intensity when it comes to outpatient treatment, depending on the support needs of the patient.

Some outpatient treatment programmes see the patient attending several sessions per week for a few hours, meaning that they still have a lot of contact time with addiction specialists.

This can be useful for those who are concerned about recovery but want some independence.

Other outpatient programmes however, can be less intensive, with sessions 1 or 2 times a week, if the patient would benefit more from having a degree of independence in their recovery.

Part Hospitalisation is another option which combines inpatient and outpatient treatment, where a patient will have part of their treatment (usually the detox) on an inpatient basis and the rest (addiction therapies) on an outpatient basis.

This works well for patients who might have health issues during a detox, but recover well and have a stable support system at home. This can also be useful if a patient has other commitments such as family or employment.

The Importance of a Dual Diagnosis for Co-occurring Disorders

A woman looking nervous

Co-occurring disorders can affect recovery in a number of ways, especially when they are not recognised and/or the patient is not given a dual diagnosis.

A dual diagnosis refers to a diagnosis of substance use disorder (drug/alcohol addiction) as well as the diagnosis of another mental health disorder at the same time.

It is very difficult to deal with substance use disorder (SUD) alone, but 7.7 million people who suffer from SUB also struggle with a co-occuring disorder.

Common disorders which are often also diagnosed in patients with SUD include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD and OCD.

Unfortunately, the link between substance use disorder and other mental disorders is strong, in part perhaps due to the detrimental effect that psychoactive substances have on the brain and/or because of their ability to temporarily mask symptoms of other mental disorders.

It is difficult to know exactly how co-occurring disorders affect SUD and vice versa, however it is clear that the two disorders interact negatively and without treating them both recovery is much more challenging.

Therefore, treatment can be found for both disorders together and separately, and this also helps provide further insight into the person’s thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

Some of the treatments for SUD can be used successfully with some co-occurring disorders too, such as CBT and DBT, alternatively finding medication to help reduce the symptoms of co-occurring disorders can also reduce the desire for a person to use substances.

During your initial assessment at drug and alcohol rehab in Newham, any treatment for co-occurring disorders will also be discussed, to ensure that you get the right treatment plan.

What Is a Relapse Prevention Plan?

Woman with laptop

As you come to the end of your drug and alcohol rehab in Newham, you will create a relapse prevention plan which will aid you in the rest of your recovery.

This plan is a personalised document which includes tools, techniques, information and contacts to help reduce the risk of a relapse occurring as much as possible.

Relapse prevention has been demonstrated to help reduce the rates of relapse and to be an effective tool in helping people with substance use disorder to manage their addictions independently.

In a relapse prevention plan, you will have guidance to help you recognise the stages of relapse so you can stop it before it happens, as well as techniques learned during treatment to help you handle cravings and temptations.

You will also have access to a range of aftercare services, as well as contact information in case you need extra support.

After Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Newham: Aftercare Services

Aftercare is incredibly important in drug and alcohol addiction treatment, as recovery is a long process which does not stop when you complete treatment.

After rehab you will have the tools to help continue your drug and alcohol recovery, and help you remain free from addiction on your own. However, you might still need some extra support either as a one off or on an ongoing basis.

This is very common and that’s why there are aftercare services in place to help you as and when you need it.

Some of the most commonly available aftercare services include:

Several aftercare services are available through the NHS, local charities and through private funding, and they can provide an essential support network for people who have completed treatment.
