Private Rehabilitation

Private rehab is the sought after option for those in the heights of addiction because of its fully integrated treatment plan and fast admissions process. Being treated at a private treatment centre will encompass a medical detox followed by intensive rehabilitation for a period of 28 days. This ensures that the addict is treated on a physical and spiritual level before venturing out into the open world again. In most cases you should receive some level of aftercare and relapse prevention.

UKAT are proud to offer – Recovery Lighthouse – a state-of-the-art drug and alcohol rehab facility in Worthing.
