Why choose Life Works rehab centre in Surrey?
Widely regarded as being one of the leading private rehabilitation centres in Europe, Life Works is able to deliver clinically excellent treatment that caters exclusively for private clients and those wishing to receive the finest addiction and eating disorder treatment available.
Life Works is dedicated to providing world renowned treatment for a range of addictions including alcohol, drugs and broader behavioural addictions, and eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder (BED) and other specified feeding or eating disorders (OSFED). We are also able to provide specialist treatment for mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, when these co-occur alongside a primary addiction or eating disorder diagnosis. If you require treatment for depression and anxiety as standalone conditions, this can be provided at our sister site, Priory Hospital Woking, or at another site in our nationwide network. Our aim is to help each and every one of our clients to achieve a full and long-lasting recovery, enabling them to take steps towards the healthy, happy and fulfilling life that they deserve.
How do we make a difference?
At Life Works, we understand that providing treatment for addictions, eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions isn’t about short-term solutions. That’s why we are committed to delivering exceptional care to each individual who seeks support with us, combining an attractive and therapeutic environment with clinical excellence, experience and innovation. We are also dedicated to our clients’ ongoing health and wellbeing and as such, we ensure that robust aftercare plans are put in place for those who have completed the addiction treatment programme, enabling our clients to continue with their recovery journey even after intensive treatment has concluded.

Focusing on sustainable recovery
Our core priority at Life Works is to empower our clients to address their challenges and take steps towards a strong and sustainable recovery. We are guided by the following principles:
- Not all addiction and eating disorder rehab centres are the same. With a holistic approach, Life Works provides intensive, specialist treatment in an intimate and highly therapeutic environment. As well as helping our clients to 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. As such, we not only support the client, but also offer help and guidance to those who are 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 treatment, tailored to our clients’ specific needs
- We are honest, positive, caring and above all, dedicated to recovery
