Drug addiction rehabilitation in Surrey
Drug addictions are treatable and it’s important to recognise that you don’t have to suffer on your own. The most crucial first step is to seek the specialist support that you need. Our experienced drug addiction team at Life Works, Woking consists of expert psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other addiction specialists, and we employ a fully holistic approach. This ensures that we are able to offer recovery on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level, thus equipping clients with the tools to achieve long-term recovery and remain abstinent for life.
A drug addiction develops as a result of an individual repeatedly taking or consuming drugs until they become both physically and psychologically dependent on the substance. It’s possible for people to become addicted to a wide range of different drugs, ranging from illegal drugs such as heroin or cocaine, to legal prescription drugs.
However, regardless of the type of substance that you have become addicted to, continued drug use can soon become a serious problem and can lead to a whole host of devastating long-term consequences, including having a negative impact on your relationships, performance at work, health, wellbeing and your ability to function effectively in daily life.
Free drug addiction assessment at Life Works in Surrey
Whether you are ready to start drug addiction treatment yourself or are looking for information for a family member or friend, we understand that seeking help can be a daunting prospect. That’s why we offer a free drug addiction assessment, to make this process as straightforward and as comfortable as possible. This initial screening assessment takes place with one of our addictions specialists, and provides you with the chance to discuss your unique concerns and challenges, receive guidance on the next steps in the drug addiction treatment process, and begin to develop an understanding of the journey that you will be taking towards drug rehabilitation and recovery.
Treatment for drug addiction usually commences with a medically assisted withdrawal detoxification (detox) programme. The purpose of the drug detox process is to remove all traces of the drug from a client’s body whilst helping them to manage withdrawal symptoms. Only when the physical aspects of the drug addiction have been addressed and appropriately managed, can the underlying psychological issues be tackled. Following successful detox, private drug addiction treatment at Life Works consists of daily group therapy, weekly individual key work and a variety of widely-used, complementary treatment methods. All treatment programmes are tailored according to the personal needs and requirements of our clients, thus fostering the best possible outcomes for each and every individual that we treat.

Without expert help, drug addictions can become progressively worse over time and continue to have a profoundly negative effect on multiple areas of your life, as well as your health and wellbeing. In addition, without specialist support, your drug addiction may lead you to develop an addiction to other substances, including alcohol, or lead you to engage in compulsive behaviours such as gambling. That’s why it’s so important to seek treatment as soon as possible in order to overcome your addiction, and start your journey towards the healthy, fulfilling, drug-free life that you deserve.
