Finger ringing a door bell with Drug Rehab written on it

Safe, Effective & Confidential Drug Rehabilitation

Our primary drug rehab includes a full medical drug detox for any medically confirmed drug dependence. The first step in recovery from drug addiction is to remove the drugs safely. Following detox, primary drug rehab can then be engaged with a clear mind and body.

On admitting to one of our four CQC registered private drug rehab clinics, located in Clapham London, Leicester Midlands, Luton Bedfordshire or Chelmsford Essex, you will be comprehensively assessed by one of our rehab doctors. They will confirm any dependence on drugs, alcohol or an activity that requires detox and treatment, along with a full physical and mental health examination.

A medical drug detox, within a controlled rehab environment, helps to diminish drug withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. This makes detoxing from drugs much safer, comfortable and achievable.

Drug Addiction

The abuse of illegal and / or prescription drugs can lead to changes in the brain which causes a variety of powerful compulsions and cravings that make sobriety feel like an almost towering impossibility. But that’s not to say that recovery is out of the question. No matter how hopeless your situation may feel right now, or how many times you’ve tried and failed to give up, with the proper medical care and support, you can get through this.

Here are some signs and symptoms of drug addiction – if any of the following apply to you and you have your concerns that your habit might be getting out of hand then you really need to get in touch.

  • You keep taking prescription drugs even though they are no longer needed.
  • You need to consume more of a substance to get the desired high.
  • You feel strange when the drug wears off and get shaky, depressed, and feel nausea – among other negative side effects.
  • You can’t stop yourself from taking the drug even though deep down you want to be free of it.
  • Most of your time is spent thinking about taking the drug and ensuring that you have enough supply.
  • You have a difficult time limiting yourself.
  • You’ve lost interested in many things that you used to enjoy doing.
  • You have a hard time feeling motivated at work or take part in social activities.
  • You are having trouble with your relationships.
  • Your sleeping pattern is out of sync (either getting too much or too little).
  • You no longer care about or take pride in your appearance.
  • You have let your self-hygiene go.

For most people who are battling with drug addiction, the first and hardest step is simply recognising that you have a problem and making the decision to try and fight it. It is perfectly natural to feel uncertain, and that perhaps you might not have what it takes, but if you are ready to take back control of your life, we are ready to help!

A common misconception is that developing an addiction to drugs is a character flaw and a sign of weakness. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Often times those who suffer from addiction and need drug treatment are very intelligent people, its just that they may have underlying causes and unresolved mental health problems that have lead to their substance abuse.

As part of your drug rehab, you will take part in various support groups and work one on one with a licenced therapist to help identify the root cause of your drug addiction.

Drug Addiction Treatment

There are three key phases of rehabilitation treatment;

When you check into one of our addiction treatment and drug rehab clinics the first step will be to begin the detoxification process. This is the time where you allow your body to rid itself of any of the harmful and addictive substances that you have been using. Detox is a necessary step for people who have been suffering from the effects of excessive drug use.

Following that, your therapy will begin. This is an essential part of your recovery where you will talk to professionals regarding your mental health and the relationship you have with the addictive substances that have brought you here. By addressing any underlying mental health problems that may have lead to your drug addiction, you will have a far better chance of kicking the habit for good and taking back control of your life – whilst preventing relapse in the future.

Finally, once you have worked through your substance misuse issues and you have successfully under gone treatment for drug abuse, we will begin working on your aftercare plan. Life after drug use can be daunting, particularly after having gone through such severe withdrawal symptoms. However, we will be with you every step of the way for as long as you need our support.

In addition to your aftercare, we also provide support for families as well. As you well know, substance abuse and addiction affects more than just you. In order to ensure that you have the best chance at a long-term recovery we will also provide ongoing family support groups for those who matter most to you and may have been impacted by your addiction. This will enable them to address and work through any emotional damage they may have experienced and gain a better understanding as to how addiction works. By building this foundation, it will better equip you all to repair your relationships and move forward with your lives, together as a single unit.

Residential Rehabilitation

As an inpatient at one of our drug addiction treatment centres you will go through residential rehabilitation. This means that you will be living in-house under the care of our medical experts and drug rehab professionals.

Our top-tier accommodation and professional medical and support workers are of the highest standard and certified by the Quality Care Commission, for your safety, comfort, and convenience.

One of the main reasons why residential rehab is so effective is because it enables you to step away from your life and take a break while you work through your drug addiction treatment. That way, you can forget about the stresses of work and every day life and focus all of your attention on getting better.

Recovery is an on-going process, but with residential rehab you can take part in a number of group therapy options, including one to one assessment and any other treatment options that apply to your unique circumstances.

Of course, if you have other commitments and are unable to pursue residential rehab we have a number of outpatient programs where you can have treatment for drug abuse during the day and then return to your home of any evening. Whatever works best for you.

Inpatient Vs. Outpatient Drug Addiction Treatment

What is the main difference between inpatient and outpatient drug addiction treatment?

  • Inpatient (or residential rehab) involves living at the private rehab centre for the duration of your drug addiction treatment.
  • Outpatient involves visiting the rehab clinic for the treatment but returning to your home afterwards.

As outpatient treatment does not provide you with a substance free environment, it is typically better suited to those who may have just started using a substance and need some guidance on how to better handle their cravings. If however, you have been abusing a substance for a long time and have tried and failed to give up then inpatient care will give you the best possible chance of a successful and long term recovery.

The fact is, a residential program will immerse you in the healing process and you will be surrounded by other like-minded individuals who know exactly what you are going through – whilst building valuable friendships along the way.

Drug Rehab Treatment FAQ

Browse through some of our most frequently asked drug rehab questions.

What is drug rehabilitation?

Drug rehabilitation is the process that someone with a drug addiction will need to undertake in order to successfully overcome their addiction. It involves addiction detox, intense group and 1-2-1 counselling, as well as daily support and guidance which aims to enable someone to understand what is underneath their addiction and learn the skills and tools required to break free from their addiction.

What drugs does the PRIVATE rehab program help with?

Our drug rehab programme caters for all addictions, whether this be illicit drugs or over the counter/ prescribed medication. The program works on the premise that it is not really the drug itself that requires the focus, it is the person who is addicted to drugs.


Currently, due to COVID-19, we are not allowing any visitors into the rehab, so we are supporting our patients to maintain contact with loved ones via video calling. You are allowed your phone throughout your rehab stay, as staying in contact helps you to rebuild your relationships with family, which may have been damaged due to the addiction. Once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, Rehab Today by allows visits every weekend from the 4th week onwards.


The Perry Clayman Project offers a 4-week, 8-week and 12-week rehabilitation program. A 4-week program will really give you the foundations for your recovery, taking you through Steps 1-3. The 8-week program builds on this foundation and takes you through the very important Steps 4-9 of the addiction recovery program. The benefit of doing the 12-week program is that in this time, our counselling team staff will teach and take you through something called the 12-step program. The 12-step program is a tried and trusted method used to overcome addiction, but it will take the full 12 weeks to learn the program.


One of the biggest concerns that many people have before going in for drug addiction treatment is whether they will be able to remain drug free after they leave. Rest assured that all of our rehab clinics offer excellent aftercare and will always be with you when you need someone to talk to.

The road to recovery is ongoing and it won’t always be easy. However, as part of your drug addiction treatment, and the work that you will do in the support groups, you will develop deeper understanding into the underlying causes of your addiction, and be better positioned to stave off relapse in the future. When you better understand the why, and you have all of the support and understanding that you need, staying on the straight and narrow will be much easier.


There is no set time which is recommended but generally speaking the longer the better! When you are addicted to drugs, you will have developed habits over a long time which have kept you in addiction, so drug rehabilitation is also about practicing new habits of behaviour which you will need to practice after rehab to stay clean. Habits take a long time to become a part of your everyday life, so the longer you spend in private rehab the more time you will have to develop these new, positive behavioural habits.


No matter how long you are with us, our aim is to help you practically in every element of your life. You will have a dedicated ‘Key-worker’ who will discuss with you any other issues that you may be facing, such as housing, employment, legal and health problems and put in place everything you need to ensure that these issues are dealt with in the best way possible.


Yes, of course. 1-2-1 counselling is a critical part of our private rehab program as naturally there will be some things that you may need to talk about that you do not feel comfortable speaking in a group setting. All of our counsellors are trained to be able to support you emotionally throughout your rehab program.


Yes! Every day that you spend in rehab, not using drugs, the less your mind will crave the drug. By engaging in positive thoughts and learning about yourself and addiction, you will not want to take drugs anymore, your sole focus will be staying away from them.


We have a very high success rate of people completing the program and remaining drug free, around 80%. Ultimately, the only thing that can guarantee the success is the person receiving it. PCP employs highly qualified, experienced staff who have helped thousands of people over the years. Our methods are developed and improved regularly, based on the most up to date evidence and knowledge. If you put into practice everything you learn in rehab, you are highly likely to remain drug free for the rest of your life.
