Residential rehabilitation

Residential rehabilitation can be recommended for those who are severely dependent on alcohol.

Residential rehabilitation (rehab)

For most people, this form of intensive support is not necessary. If you are severely dependent on alcohol and have tried the other options, however, your recovery practitioner may recommend rehab. This involves staying at a specialist residential unit, usually for twelve weeks, where you will work daily on your recovery. This is a combination of one-to-one and group sessions.

In most cases, no alcohol (or drugs) are allowed on the premises and residents must commit to staying for the full length of the programme. It is advisable to continue with support for your sobriety once you have completed the residential stay.
