Addictions UK Our Services

Addictions UK offer a wide range of services designed to help people recover from addiction to drugs, alcohol and harmful behaviours. Services range from medical interventions such as our Home Detox Programme which allow addicts to withdraw from physical addiction safely, under medical supervision and at home, through to essential counselling and after care services that help addicts into long term, sustainable recovery. Many of these services extend to the friends and family members of the addict. We also treat many of the compulsions and mental health conditions such as depression that often accompany addiction.

  • Free Recovery Assessment Addictions UK

    Addiction is a complex condition. No two addicts are the same. We are totally committed to the concept of offering a “client led” recovery programme. We believe that people should exercise their rights to choose their own treatment methods.

    Realising you have an addiction to drugs, alcohol or harmful behaviours and reaching out for help is a first and vital step towards recovery.

    Determining appropriate treatment is the next step, and we offer a free one-off assessment service for anyone who thinks they might benefit from some sort of therapeutic assistance.

    Our assessment lasts around 30 minutes and we will give you a clear idea of what sort of treatment plan might be of benefit to you.

    After they have completed one of our assessment forms, we listen carefully to our clients and offer them choices that range from joining self-help groups, to beginning our own treatment programmes or other home-based or residential services.

    We never seek to sell our own services unless that is the correct path for the individual.

    To receive your free assessment please telephone us on 0800 1404044 or contact us through this web site.

  • Addictions UK Home Detox Programme

    Many people would prefer to be treated at home for any illness and we know that this is particularly true of people dealing with addictions.

    At Addictions UK we deliver medically supervised UK Home Detox Programmes. This allows us to deliver the treatment delivered on hospital wards and in clinics in a private supportive home environment, making a painful situation a little easier. There’s usually no place more comfortable, safe-feeling and controlled than home

    What is a Home Detox?

    Detoxification when applied to addiction is defined as the natural process that occurs in the body as it attempts to rid the system of waste products and toxins from excessive, long-term alcohol consumption or drug use. In a treatment setting, detox is usually accompanied by medication, medical observation, and counselling. The aim of detoxification is to rid the body of the addictive substance while managing withdrawal symptoms safely.

    Our team will do a comprehensive review of alcohol, drug, medical and psychiatric history prior to advising on this or any other treatment.

    If the Home Detox Programme is deemed suitable, it will be administered and monitored by trained healthcare professionals.

    Detox is only of value when combined with an on-going treatment programme. You can arrange this separately if you wish or we can add our Home Treatment Programme. This involves continued monitoring and support by a trained healthcare professional in the weeks following the Home Detox Programme.

    Medical Detox can be arranged as part of your Home-based Recovery Process Addictions UK services are affordable, effective and confidential.
    Safety is of paramount importance in conducting Medical Detox and we require full assessment before we agree to provide this service.

    The Benefits of Home Detox
    • Speedy Service: We can normally contact you immediately to discuss your requirements. We will make all the arrangements after we have carried out a Risk Assessment and you will be given the telephone number of our 24/7 Helpline.
    • Medically Safe: A Doctor will assess your individual needs along with a trained therapist. We may prescribe various medicines to help your body adjust to being without alcohol or drugs. This treatment is designed to prevent extreme withdrawal symptoms such as seizures or fits and will help avoid the discomfort and anxiety of “cold turkey” reactions. Your body will re-balance as the medication is gradually reduced. At the start of your prescribed regime, you may be given a strong sedative and maybe something to help you sleep. This is at the professional discretion of a Trained Medical Professional
    • Convenient: Unlike signing in for treatment in a clinic which isolates you from your normal pattern of life; home-based treatment allows you to carry on with many of your regular activities. Using heavy equipment or driving is not recommended during treatment.
    • Affordable: The cost of residential treatment is obviously much higher than treatment at home through your detox, even if you require additional support. The cost is calculated according to your needs and requirements.
    • Confidential: You may worry about the effect on your job or career that having addiction and home detox on your medical records might have. Addictions UK sign a waiver that ensures confidentiality. We will not contact your GP unless we receive your permission.  In some cases, however we may ask to liaise with your own GP if there is an ongoing medical condition that may place you at risk. Addictions UK does not contribute any personal information or statistics in any form to Central or Local Government Agencies or other Addiction Databases.
    • Supportive: After the initial prescribing consultation, the Addictions UK 24/7 Helpline will deal with any urgent questions or any complications you need to report.You will also need help from a skilled therapist to help you remain free from addiction. Our programme can include the first month of ongoing support to help you avoid dependence in the future. We recommend that in all case some form of ongoing  treatment or preventative programme is obtained.
    • On-going: We have a range of therapy, counselling and recovery coaching services which can continue to support you and, where appropriate, your family and friends.Medical Detox is not a cure. You will need continuing care. We will not conduct Home Detox unless some form of ongoing recovery programme is agreed in advance.  A Detox only serves to remove alcohol or drugs safely from your body.  It does not act as a cure for your pathological dependence issues.Trying to Detox from alcohol or drugs on your own can be extremely dangerous. Withdrawal from alcohol can be particularly hazardous and some people can suffer seizures. Our Medically Supervised Home Detox Programmes is tailored around your individual needs and our specialist addiction staff will manage all aspects of your treatment.Addictions UK always conduct a comprehensive needs and risk assessment in order to determine the best and most appropriate treatment for the individual. Any treatment offered will be according to the Addictions UK Conditions of Service which you must agree to follow if treatment is to be commenced.

  • Recovery 100 plan

    Addictions UK offer comprehensive year-long recovery plans designed to ensure that the recovering addict puts foundations and behaviours in place that will allow them to sustain their recovery for their new life ahead.

    These programmes appeal to those people who want to embark on a planned home-based treatment regime that will permit them to remain with their family and keep up their commitments at work.

    This will probably begin with an assessment followed by a series of daily sessions over the first three months. These will transition to weekly Relapse Prevention over the following nine months.

    Details are tailored to the individual, are always supervised by trained professionals and can cost as little as £60 a week.

    Contact us for details.

  • Relapse Prevention Programme

    “Stopping is easy, staying stopped is hard.” (Alcoholics Anonymous Member)

    Many people are tempted to cease treatment earlier than is wise. Having successfully stopped drinking, taking drugs or engaging in harmful behaviour, they want to move on with their lives. This is natural,  but they forget that addiction is a chronic and progressive illness that has no permanent cure or fix.

    Addictions UK offers clients customised “relapse prevention” after completion of their agreed recovery programme. This can take the form of extended coaching or counselling sessions, introduction to peer-mentoring groups and access to a 24/7 helpline and are designed to ensure that recovery is permanent.

    Personal support of this nature is available for as little as £30 a week.

    Contact us for details.

  • Private: Continuing Coaching and After Care

    Ongoing support for as long as you need it

    Free

    Our 24/7 Coaching Line and After-care Services are available free of additional charges to anyone who has completed any of our Treatment Programmes.

    Most of our clients complete their rigourous and intensive addictions treatment programme. All the available evidence shows that those people who continue to work on their recovery maintain their sobriety longer than those people who suddenly stop. Generally people tend to relapse when “life is good”; people often “float” back to addictive behaviour gradually rather than relapse in a moment.

    We recommend that clients secure ongoing support – either with Addictions UK or other self-help groups and plan for ongoing After-care.

    After-care sessions are relatively inexpensive – contact us for details. Our 24/7 Helpline is available to all our former clients free of charge. Most self-help groups do not charge you to attend meetings.

  • Addictions UK Family, Friends and Carers

    Addiction can affect the whole family, not just the addict.

    It is for that reason that we have a dedicated helpline to support the Families, Friends and Carers of our clients. Sometimes the insanity of the addict or alcoholic spreads to those close to them, who feel pressurised to give in to their demands.

    Addictions UK employs staff members who have had their own experiences as a “carer”, They do not work with the addict which means that we can keep everything that is discussed separate and totally confidential.

    Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we help Families, Friends and Carers.
