Drug and alcohol rehab in Lancashire

The rates of alcohol and drug addiction in the UK are increasing every year. While the factors behind each individual’s addiction vary, the consequences are sadly all too similar. Addiction can harm your health and your relationships, and leave you feeling completely alone. Fortunately, there are wonderful rehab centres in Lancashire that offer comprehensive alcohol rehab and drug rehab programmes. These can help you to overcome your addiction and build a brighter future for yourself and your family.

To help you understand your options, here is our guide to drug and alcohol rehab in Lancashire.

Types of addiction treatment and rehab programmes in Lancashire

The first thing you will need to do is choose between outpatient treatment in Lancashire and inpatient treatment in Lancashire, because both are available through local treatment centres. The most important thing is to consider every option available to you so that you can make the best choice for your recovery.

Outpatient addiction treatment (day rehab)

In order to make the decision between inpatient addiction treatment and outpatient treatment, you first need to know what they entail. For many people, outpatient treatment seems like the best approach because in this case, you will only be required to attend day rehab for your scheduled appointments, leaving you free to work and take care of your other responsibilities. While this may appear to be more convenient than residential rehab, it is often not as effective at treating drug and alcohol addiction. This is because individuals remain exposed to their underlying addictive triggers during treatment, so are more likely to relapse.

Inpatient addiction treatment (residential rehab)

Undergoing inpatient treatment at a residential rehab centre will give you the time away from your triggers that you need to focus on your addiction. You will be provided with the highest standards of accommodation and food during your stay, and will have the opportunity to get to know the staff and the other residents. This is important for building a support network which will help you achieve long-term recovery. There are various residential rehab centres in Lancashire so you will need to research the various treatment programme options and decide which addiction treatment centre will be best for you. Unlike day rehab, which is available for free through the NHS, inpatient treatment is usually privately funded, but if you have private health insurance through your employer or some other means, your insurance plan may cover some or all of the costs.

Why inpatient rehab?

In addition to providing you with the time and space you need for your recovery, there are various other benefits which make inpatient treatment a better choice than outpatient treatment.

CQC ratings

First of all, when you choose inpatient treatment, you will be able to decide between the different residential rehab centres available. This isn’t possible through the NHS, where you will have to go to whatever day rehab centre has a space. One way to help narrow down your options is to compare ratings given to social care and healthcare facilities by the independent Care Quality Commission (CQC). These rate facilities based on factors like the number of staff, the quality of care and the standards of accommodation.

Mixture of therapies

Another benefit of an inpatient treatment programme is that you will receive a more diverse range of therapies. These typically include both group and one-to-one therapy sessions, as well as other activities which will help you deal with cravings or stressful life situations. These may be yoga classes or mindfulness sessions, and this holistic approach will help you to overcome your addiction on every level, rather than just addressing the physical dependence. This is very important, as it will enable you to deal with difficult moments when you leave rehab and give you the tools you need to resist cravings.

Family support programmes

Both addiction and watching loved ones go through treatment can take their toll on families, and so most inpatient programmes will also include support for your family members. This includes explaining to your loved ones the different types of treatment that you are receiving and also helps them to understand what they can do to make your recovery easier.


Addiction can cause enormous harm to relationships, and in order to help clients and their families come together again, we offer special conjoint sessions that are run by our addiction treatment professionals. They give everyone a chance to speak openly about their feelings, and have been shown to be a great way for families to rebuild trust, speak honestly about the impact of addiction and reaffirm their love for each other.

What should I expect from a detox in Lancashire?

Before you can get started with your treatment programme, you will first need to clear your body of drugs and alcohol. This process is called detox, and it is vital for addiction recovery. However, detox can have potentially severe withdrawal symptoms, so you should always consult a medical professional before detoxing.

Medical detox

Because the withdrawal symptoms of drug and alcohol detox can be so dangerous, the first thing that all inpatients receive when entering rehab is a full medical assessment. This will help the medical staff decide whether you are likely to experience severe withdrawal symptoms as a result of detox. If they decide that you are at risk, you will most likely undergo medical detox, with 24/7 supervision, and often with the aid of detox medication. These measures are designed to keep you comfortable and safe until you have cleared all the substances from your system. Due to the levels of care needed, it is very difficult to offer medically assisted alcohol or drug detox to outpatients, so they usually have to wait for one of the few NHS inpatient beds to become available. Unfortunately, this is often a long wait, which can seriously delay the start of their treatment.

Drug and alcohol rehab programme

Addiction treatment is most effective when there is a holistic recovery approach incorporating a mixture of treatments. At, we follow a 12-step programme that includes one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), so that every aspect of addiction is addressed. Unfortunately, due to their limited resources, day rehab clinics often follow a non-12-step programme and are only able to provide group therapy, which leaves many aspects of addiction unaddressed. You will need to allow yourself at least four weeks for residential rehab because this is the minimum time needed to complete the initial stages of the twelve steps as a group and with extra support.

Is rehab free?

There are free addiction treatment services available through the NHS and they will accept you on self-referral. However, to get a place in an NHS rehab clinic, you will need to consult your GP, and they may instead refer you for drug counselling or a standalone detox programme. This is very common, because NHS rehab services are oversubscribed. If you think that inpatient treatment is your best option but you can’t afford to pay for it, try speaking to the volunteers at Turning Point, which is a charity that helps people who can’t fund the residential rehab fees.

Free addiction treatment services in Lancashire

In addition to rehab services, you can also go along to your local AA meeting in Lancashire, where you will be able to meet some wonderful people who are also on the same recovery journey.

The downside to free services

Like all NHS staff, the professionals working in free rehab services are some of the most committed and selfless people you will ever meet. Unfortunately, the system is so underfunded and oversubscribed that even with their best efforts, the services offered are not up to scratch. There is only outpatient treatment provided through the NHS, and even this is oversubscribed to the point where even if you are lucky enough to get a place, it is very difficult to get appointment times that you can work around your schedule.

What happens after a rehab programme?

The first thing you need to do after completing a rehab programme is to congratulate yourself on your achievement. After that, it is time to look forward along the road to long-term recovery, remembering that everyone at will be there for you every step of the way.

Aftercare programmes

Our continued support begins with our aftercare programmes, which are designed to help you deal with cravings and other difficulties post-rehab. Aftercare will include further group therapy sessions, and will also provide you with access to our online alumni network, where you can meet other people on the same recovery journey.

Support groups

There are also some amazing local support groups who will be able to give you much-needed support and advice during difficult moments. Try contacting these groups and go along to some meetings: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA) and SMART Recovery.

Long-term recovery from addiction

Long-term recovery from addiction really is a journey, and everyone experiences it differently. A few lucky people leave rehab and never experience another craving, but for most people, rehab is just the start. Remember that everyone here has your back and that we will be with you every step of the way.

How do I tell my family I’m going to rehab?

Telling your family that you are going into rehab can often be the scariest part of the whole process. What is most important is that you remember why you made the decision in the first place and don’t let anything phase you. Sit down with your family and explain how your addiction is affecting your life and why you want to overcome it. It is likely that your family will be fully supportive of your decision, and that support could potentially be enormous in helping you to make a long-term recovery.

How do I get a loved one into rehab?

If you have a loved one with a drug or alcohol addiction, it is so important that you address the situation in the right way. Nobody can be forced or coerced into rehab, so you will instead need to help them realise that they need help. Sit down with your loved one and explain why you are worried about them and what help is available.

Can you force someone to go to rehab?
It must be the person’s own decision to go to rehab, so you cannot force them if they do not want to go. Addiction has a profound effect on people, so they must decide when it is the right time for them to engage with support. You can encourage someone to go to rehab through open and honest discussions about your concerns for their wellbeing.
Can I sign up for rehab for someone else?
Unfortunately, you cannot sign up to rehab on behalf of someone. The person has to decide to go to rehab themselves and be ready to accept support; otherwise, the treatment is unlikely to be a success.
How long does a rehab process take?
The rehab process can vary in duration in line with how much progress the person has made. At, many of our clients will stay for at least four weeks to ensure that there is enough time to fully engage with the programme.

Can I visit a person who is in rehab?
Rehabs have a visiting system allowing you to spend planned time with a loved one receiving addiction treatment. At, visiting times are every Sunday.

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus pandemic resulted in us postponing visiting to help stop the spread of the virus. As soon as it is safe to do so and in line with government guidelines, we will re-introduce visitation.

Are there free rehabs in Lancashire?
There are some free rehabs providing addiction treatment in Lancashire. These are mostly accessible via an NHS GP referral but can take considerable time from referral to admission. Free rehabs mostly provide outpatient treatment, so you may wish to consider accessing private inpatient treatment if you would prefer a residential stay.

Obtaining funding from the NHS to go to rehab can be challenging. There are only a small number of applications approved, and the application process can take a considerable amount of time. You can have a discussion with your GP to start this process.

You can learn new life skills to help you maintain sobriety, as well as meet a wide support network of peers and professionals to support you in the long term. It provides holistic support to help you recover from the physical, psychological and social challenges that addiction causes.
What is the difference between rehab and detox?
A detox helps with the physical aspects of addiction by helping you to stop taking addictive substances through a period of abstinence. Detox is a crucial part of the recovery process because it allows you to engage with the remainder of your rehab programme.
