Drug and alcohol rehab in Maidstone

Living with a drug or alcohol addiction can be a very isolating experience, but there are some amazing treatment services that can help. Making the decision to seek help is the first and most important step, after which you will need to identify the right rehab centre for your treatment. There are many excellent rehab centres in Maidstone which offer comprehensive alcohol rehab and drug rehab services, but with so many factors to consider, the process of choosing the best treatment centre can be quite overwhelming.

To help you get started, here is what you need to know about drug and alcohol rehab in Maidstone.

Types of addiction treatment and rehab programmes in Maidstone

The first thing you will need to consider is what kind of addiction treatment is best for you. There are treatment centres offering both outpatient treatment in Maidstone and inpatient treatment in Maidstone so you will have plenty of options. Both types of treatment have their advantages so it is vital to understand what they involve.

Outpatient addiction treatment (day rehab)

Outpatient treatment is available for free through the NHS, and some people choose this option because it allows them to stay at home and only go into the day rehab centre for their treatment appointments. Outpatient treatment will usually involve various types of addiction therapy and may also require medical detox. However, while outpatient treatment will enable you to go about your everyday routine, it will leave you exposed to those tricky things in your life that can trigger your addiction. As a result, the most effective drug and alcohol addiction treatment for many people requires a more holistic approach to recovery.

Inpatient addiction treatment (residential rehab)

Often, the best way to get that holistic recovery approach is by undergoing inpatient treatment at a residential rehab centre. Usually available as private treatment only, inpatient treatment will give you the time and space you need to tackle your addiction and begin your journey to long-term recovery. You will be able to choose your addiction treatment centre and discuss the length of your treatment programme with the admissions team. There are various residential rehab centres in Maidstone offering the highest levels of care and accommodation, and if you want to know more about our other UK centres, make sure to call us or send us a message so we can help you choose the best option for your treatment.

Why inpatient rehab?

Inpatient treatment is the most holistic and immersive approach to treating a drug or alcohol addiction. It involves a mixture of therapies to address different aspects of addiction and addictive behaviour. These will include one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). When you are choosing between different residential rehab clinics, you can compare their CQC ratings, which are unbiased scores given by the independent Care Quality Commission. These ratings can tell you about the different therapies offered, as well as other important information like the number of staff and the effectiveness of treatment. Addiction can put a lot of pressure on relationships, and so residential rehab centres try to involve loved ones as much as possible. Your family will be offered comprehensive family support programmes, as well as special sessions called conjoints where everyone will have an opportunity to voice their feelings and support each other through the rehab process.

What should I expect from a detox in Maidstone?

Detox is a crucial step in addiction recovery, as it is necessary to remove all of the drugs and alcohol from your body before therapy can begin. Detox can cause dangerous withdrawal symptoms so in order to do it safely, it is very important that you seek medical guidance before getting started.

Medical detox

When you enter residential rehab, that medical guidance will be provided from day one. You will undergo a full medical assessment upon admission so that the medical team can check whether you are at risk of severe withdrawal symptoms. This determination will be made based on your general health and the extent of your substance use, and if you are deemed to be at risk, you will be offered alcohol or drug detox with full medical observation and special medication. This will ensure that you are safe, healthy and comfortable until all of the substances have been purged from your body. While medically assisted drug and alcohol detox are available to both inpatients and outpatients, the levels of care and supervision required make it logistically difficult to arrange medical detox for outpatients. They usually have to wait for an NHS inpatient bed to become available, and this can take a long time.

Drug and alcohol rehab programme

At, we believe in a holistic recovery approach, so all of our clients follow a 12-step programme. This combines one-to-one therapy, group therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy so that there is no stone left unturned when it comes to treatment. Other treatment centres may follow a non-12-step programme, which does not address all of the different aspects of addiction and the resulting behaviours and impact. The longer you stay in rehab, the more benefits you will receive, but it is vital to commit to at least a month’s stay because the first few steps of our programmes take around twenty-eight days.

Is rehab free?

The NHS does offer some free addiction treatment services, and you may be able to access these through self-referral at your local clinic. Unfortunately, these services are hugely oversubscribed so you may be recommended a detox programme instead. If you need help financing private treatment, contact the charity Turning Point for assistance.

Free addiction treatment services in Maidstone

There are other fantastic addiction services in Maidstone which can offer you much-needed support. Head along to your local AA meeting and you will be able to meet some wonderful people.

The downside to free services

As with so many other public services, government cuts have left addiction treatment services understaffed, underfunded and oversubscribed. All NHS addiction treatment is outpatient only, which means it does not provide the holistic approach that is so important for recovery. There is no one-to-one therapy through the NHS, and it can be very difficult to offer medically assisted detox. There are often long waiting lists for free services and few appointment times even for those people who are lucky enough to get a place at day rehab. Because of these drawbacks, it is important that you consider all treatment options available to you before making a final decision.

The benefits of residential rehab in Maidstone

  • No long waiting lists for new inpatient admissions
  • A choice of clinics with CQC ratings to help compare options
  • Full medically assisted detox available to clients at risk of severe withdrawal symptoms
  • A mixture of therapies available to all clients
  • Highest standards of food and accommodation available for duration of stay
  • Family support programmes and conjoints to help loved ones
  • 12-step programme to address every aspect of addiction
  • Aftercare programmes to assist long-term recovery
  • Further group therapy sessions

What happens after a rehab programme?

After your stay in rehab is complete, you should take time to reflect and celebrate your achievement. The first stage of recovery is behind you, and the our team will be with you for the next stages of your journey.

Aftercare programmes

We provide a comprehensive aftercare programme to every one of our clients after they leave our centres. This usually includes future group therapy sessions and access to UKAT’s Alumni Network, where you will be able to meet other people in recovery to bond with and to offer mutual support.

Support groups

There are other excellent support groups you can reach out to after leaving rehab. Depending on the nature of your addiction, try meeting up with some of these organisations:

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
Cocaine Anonymous (CA)
SMART Recovery

Long-term recovery from addiction

Leaving rehab can be a scary time as you return to your normal life and its everyday trials and tribulations. It is important to remember that whenever there are difficult moments, we will be by your side to help you through them.

You can encourage someone to go to rehab through open and honest discussions about your concerns for their wellbeing.

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.
