Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment in Surrey
When it comes to finding the right treatment for substance dependence or alcoholism in Surrey, it helps to know what options are available and whether those options are suitable for the needs of the individual and their loved ones. Private drug and alcohol rehabilitation may seem costly but the level of care you receive as a patient, both during and after rehab, gives you or a loved one a strong foundation in recovery. That being said, we do understand that private rehab isn’t an option for everyone, so we’ve put together a list of paid and free services in Surrey, so you can make an informed decision on treatment. Whether you live in Guildford, Woking, Dorking or Farnham, you can be reassured that rehab services are within close proximity to home.
Addiction Treatment Services in Surrey
If it’s private treatment you are looking for, UKAT has a number of residential rehab centres located in close proximity of Surrey. Our rehabs are all CQC registered, complete with addiction therapists, nurses and psychiatrists who will make your stay comfortable. If you are struggling with alcohol use disorder, or have been abusing prescription drugs and/or opiates, our medical team may provide a medical detoxification to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. You will then proceed to the rehab stage for holistic treatment and psychotherapy.
If a particular situation is severe in which an individual is at risk to themselves or others, whether that be through acts of violence, criminal activity (stealing) or spiralling debt, the quickest and safest option is to look into private rehabilitation.

What Treatment Services Are Offered by the NHS?
The NHS do not provide residential rehab programmes, however they may provide funding for the most serious of cases. There are a number of free services available such as Addaction, which don’t require a GP referral.
If you have been misusing alcohol, benzodiazepines or opiates, a medical detox may be appropriate before commencing any rehab services. This is to ensure substances are removed safely from the body. We recommend that you speak with your GP before commencing any services, as they may be able to assist with a medical detox programme.

Prescribed Medical Detoxification

My whole experience in regards to my treatment with UKAT has exceeded my expectations. I had no idea what I was going into, but due to the staff professionalism and expertise I soon realised I made one of the best personal decision’s in my life! I did my 5 days isolation initially at Banbury lodge which the “isolation” experience was something out of anyone’s control however the staff were fantastic. Once I moved to my chosen centre (Primrose lodge Guildford), my first impressions was welcoming , hygienic and comfortable. The ambience of the lodge was very homely and spacious. The on site chef was outstanding and I was concerned about this factor the most, however I enjoyed every meal throughout my whole stay here at Primrose. This factor is one of the most important for me as good nutrient is a key element in your recovery. All the staff are exceptionally thorough and have every process in terms of running the day-day running of the centre perfected. Every process has been proofed and I have never found a fault or picked on something that’s not done or communicated. All the therapists are outstanding and I cannot thank them enough for the level of expertise they display. They blew me away how they got through to myself and many patients day in day out. Most of the staff are ex addicts and this puts a huge amount of comfort in my mind when of opening up in a safe environment. It is quite clear that the therapist’s passion and dedication is above and beyond and I feel so grateful for everything all the staff and this centre have done for me!
