Drug & Alcohol Rehab in London and Essex, Rehabs in the UK

At our Essex rehab clinic near London, UK, we will diligently work with our clients to adapt our drug and alcohol rehab treatments to meet individual needs and preferences. We offer detox and rehab for all substances including alcohol, cocaine, heroin, crack and prescription drugs. Call 0800 170 1222 for free advice.

Drug and Alcohol Detox Treatment Programmes

Following an in-depth consultation, most of our clients begin their addiction treatment at our rehabs in the UK with a medically assisted detox. During this period, medical staff are available 24/7 to administer drugs as required to relieve withdrawal symptoms. 

Once you complete your medical detox, we offer a comprehensive range of evidence-based and holistic therapies as part of your bespoke addiction treatment programme. We aim to look beyond the symptoms of addiction and identify the root cause of the problem to find the most effective ways to assist you in resolving them.

As part of our outstanding quality of care, we include a range of healing therapies and outdoor activities. At our private rehab centre, we want to help you to refocus the mind, body, and soul. This may be through walks on the beach, creative endeavours or practising mindfulness and many other long-term solutions to help you live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

what make us different
outpatient detox london programme

At The Lighthouse, you will be treated as a person with real feelings and emotions and can expect to receive respect throughout your stay. We believe that part of addiction recovery is helping clients heal from their experiences and find ways to honour themselves. Many of our addiction treatment therapists and support staff have overcome addiction and have a genuine understanding of the incredible courage and determination it takes to accept, recognise and seek help for addiction.  

We know that everyone is different, so no single treatment approach can be expected to work for all individuals. Our dedicated team of therapists work hard to adjust each client’s addiction treatment plan according to what’s most relevant to their unique reasons for addiction. At Step by Step Recovery, we want to show you the possibilities of life without addiction and help you learn to live life in a satisfying and enjoyable way. 

Our Testimonials

The Lighthouse saved my life when I’d already given up hope. I’d been in and out of treatment my whole life, but never felt like I was ever getting to the bottom of what was causing my behaviour and why I couldn’t stop. I would sometimes spend so long in rehab that I’d go through the same program two or three times. I remember feeling so relieved in those first few days at the Lighthouse, because I finally felt like I was getting somewhere. Their staff are simply incredible. They created a recovery plan specifically for me, taking into account what I needed. They worked so hard to help me heal after so many years of misery, and it’s because of them that I finally began to make progress in my recovery. Since leaving, I feel like I’ve been given another chance at living a clean and happy life.
