Free addiction assessment

We recognise that substance addictions, including alcohol and drug addictions, as well as broader behavioural addictions such as gambling, internet, love and sex and shopping addictions, can have a profoundly negative impact on all areas of your life, including your ability to function on a daily basis, your interpersonal relationships, performance at work, and your physical and psychological health.

At Priory, we ensure that you are placed at the heart of your addiction treatment journey so that you benefit from a truly bespoke package of care, in order to produce the best possible outcomes for you as an individual, and allow you to overcome your substance misuse or addictive behaviours.

Free addiction assessment at your nearest hospital

To ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible on your journey to recovery, we offer a free addiction assessment with one of our alcohol and drug rehab experts. This allows you to discuss your concerns in confidence, receive guidance on the next steps in the addiction treatment process, and begin to develop an understanding of the journey that you'll be taking towards rehabilitation and recovery.

You'll also have a consultation with a consultant psychiatrist, who will gather information on your medical and psychiatric history and advise on future treatment. We also offer a medically assisted detoxification process for your addiction, if this is needed.

Assessments can be done over the phone or in person, and usually last for approximately 90 minutes.

Signs you’re drinking too much alcohol

Unhealthy drinking habits can put your health, relationships and work life at risk. If you're concerned about your alcohol consumption, or you're worried about someone else, there are some signs to look out for if you're drinking too much.

Some of these signs include drinking heavily alone, becoming secretive about your drinking, or your work and home life are being negatively affected due to drinking.

Continuing to drink too much alcohol can result in various side effects that can put your physical health, mental health and lifestyle at risk.

Inpatient addiction treatment at Priory

Our addiction treatment programmes typically take place as part of a 28-day residential programme, although the length of treatment can be flexible according to your unique needs, requirements and commitments. When checking into a rehab, you'll have the opportunity to tackle any physical symptoms of your addiction, during detox, before undergoing intensive group and individual therapy in order to address the underlying causes and triggers for your addictive behaviours.

Addiction treatment at Priory is underpinned by the renowned 12-step model, which is an abstinence-based approach that was first introduced by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The 12-step model provides a set of guiding principles for the addiction treatment journey, and focuses on your motivation to change your unhealthy thought patterns and addictive behaviours, while also drawing upon elements of spirituality within the treatment and recovery process.

We provide an evidence-based programme that is tailored to individual needs, all structured within National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. Our leading addiction treatment programmes consist of:

  • Free, no obligation addiction assessment
  • 7 to 10-day medically assisted detoxification for drug and alcohol addictions, if this is needed
  • Individual 1:1 therapy, online therapy and structured group therapy programmes
  • Family and couples programmes
  • Access to both on and off-site 12-step support groups
  • Free aftercare for 12 months following treatment (aftercare is provided for life following treatment at Priory Hospital Roehampton)
  • Free family support for 12 months following treatment (family support is provided for life following treatment at Priory Hospital Roehampton)

As well as our comprehensive inpatient offering, addiction treatment at Priory can also take the form of day care or outpatient therapy. These options can be used as a step-down in intensity for people who have completed a residential programme, or can also be used as an entry-point to therapy, depending on the nature of your addiction and the intensity of the support you need.
