Providing the best possible care for each of our clients is of paramount importance to us at Life Works. We work with the utmost integrity and as such, will only admit a client if we truly believe that we can offer the best treatment for their needs. If our experts deem that Life Works is not the best place for an individual according to their condition and requirements, then alternative treatment options and locations will be explored.

Our Life Works experts retain strong clinical links with nearby Priory sites, such as Priory Hospital Woking, enabling a smooth transition to other, more appropriate inpatient treatment, if we feel that this is the best course of action for any of our clients.


We pride ourselves on guaranteeing the utmost discretion and confidentiality for each and every one of our clients, ensuring that they can rely on receiving a strictly discreet and professional service. Clients’ visitors and guests are only allowed by appointment and are monitored throughout their visit.

Focusing on sustained recovery

  • Not all addiction treatment centres are the same. With a holistic approach, Life Works provides intensive, specialist treatment programmes in an intimate and open environment. As well as helping our clients reclaim their lives, our aim is to continue to support them as they maintain recovery, and enjoy healthy and fulfilled lives
  • Our clients benefit from being treated within our small, safe community. We are not a large psychiatric hospital treating wider mental health issues
  • We value the role of family and friends as an integral part of the treatment process, and provide support and relief for our clients, and those closest to them.
  • As specialists in behavioural health, we do not offer treatment to clients with severe mental health issues. We focus on providing specialist treatments tailored to our clients' specific needs
  • The haven and facilities that we provide create an appropriate environment for the exceptional therapeutic treatment that we deliver. We strive to help clients achieve long-term, life-changing results, not simply provide short-term sanctuary
  • We are honest, positive and caring. Above all, we are dedicated to recovery
