In most cases you should receive some level of aftercare and relapse prevention.
Recovery Lighthouse is one of UKAT’s many private drug and alcohol rehabs. It is located in a residential facility in Worthing, West Sussex and provides a welcoming, caring and safe environment. Here you will be medically detoxed, emotionally assessed and therapeutically rehabilitated while receiving around-the-clock care and support.

The staff and therapists at the Recovery Lighthouse were very welcoming and made me feel comfortable straightaway. It is a small therapy centre which is great as you feel more connected with the staff, therapists and other clients. The program is jam-packed but I leave with the tools and connections to support me on my journey of recovery.
the help i received from all staff was great, really helpful. learnt a lot about myself with there help. food very good,
i want to thank everyone at the lighthouse all the staff and peers past and present. this has saved my life and giving me a new one to start. thank you so much.
This is my second rehabilitation at Recovery Lighthouse. I relapsed after my 1st visit 2.5 years ago. Food and chefs excellent, the same for the management, therapists, support workers and cleaning staff. Some of the administrative staff appear on occasion to be under stress and this has resulted in many of the current clients feeling unhappy about the way they were treated which on some occasions bordered on being rude. The centre is also incredibly rule- oriented with some of the rules inexplicable or unnecessary. When asked for something the answer is either 'yes' or 'no' predominately 'no' with little room to compromise. Otherwise, if I were to relapse again (hope to God I don't) then I would choose Recovery Lighthouse again, hence the 4 stars. Jon
Absolutely amazing place!! A very 'home' like atmosphere and one where I felt totally safe. The staff here are brilliant - from the support workers that take a hugely personal but professional approach, to the therapists who truly want to make a difference in the short time you are here. A great combination of helping you understand and start to accept the nature of addiction through groups and 1:1 therapy to allow you to identify and start to understand how to deal with it. Food is varied and good and the house clean/comfortable. If you are serious about wanting to change - I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It has saved my life by giving me hope and the start of a toolkit to live a full life in recovery.
