The Admissions Process

Once you have decided that you need professional help to treat your addiction, you can begin the admissions process. Taking the steps towards admittance can be stressful if it is your first time going to rehab. We at Ocean Recovery understand this and try to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.

You begin the process by making an initial enquiry via telephone. Here you can speak to a member of our knowledgeable staff. They will listen to you explain your situation and desires and offer a suitable course of action.

Our staff is available 24/7 so you can call anytime to start the process.

If you are happy to proceed then a pre-admission screening can take place over the phone. This takes around 20 minutes and is done to get more information on you, your health, your addiction history and other important information.

Once this is done, availability can be discussed and a possible admission date can be arranged. We also allow tours of the facility if you wish to get a feel for the facility before coming.


Outpatient and Inpatient Treatment

The best way to treat addiction is through a professional framework. This means undergoing detox, therapy and perhaps engaging in aftercare.

This path of recovery can be provided via inpatient or outpatient rehab. Outpatient treatment is when you receive treatment whilst remaining at home. This course of addiction treatment is much more flexible, allowing you to stick to your daily responsibilities. People that are only mildly addicted to substances can afford to complete treatment this way.

The benefit of outpatient drug rehab, besides flexibility, is that it is cheaper. If you do not go private then free outpatient treatment is available via the NHS. With outpatient treatment, you can expect a long waiting list and not a wide range of treatments.

Inpatient treatment is when you move into a facility for a time. At inpatient drug rehab, you will undergo care that is tailored towards your individual needs.

This is the type of treatment you will receive at Ocean Recovery. Our priority lies in detoxing so that you become physically healthier before starting psychological treatment.


What Happens in Private Rehab?

After entering and acclimatising to your surroundings, you will begin the first stage of rehab – detoxification.


Detox is the process of purging harmful substances from your body by immediately ceasing to take them. Doing this will likely bring on withdrawal symptoms. To help alleviate the symptoms and make you more comfortable, medication can be administered.

The severity of your symptoms is measured to decide the best course to take and your blood pressure and pulse will be monitored to ensure you are doing well. For alcohol detox, we use Librium or Chlordiazepoxide whilst drug detox for substances like cocaine is treated with diazepam.

Detox takes 7-10 days and you will remain in designated detox rooms before moving to your assigned room.


You will take part in a combination of individual and group sessions during your time at Ocean Recovery. Individual sessions such as addiction counselling will help you uncover the reasons behind your addiction and find ways to deal with it.

CBT-based group sessions and relapse prevention sessions will help you learn better-coping techniques, build up your self-confidence and talk to other clients about your respective journeys.

Social Activities

Rehab is not all about treatment. Downtime is important and filling those hours in constructive ways is vital to achieving long-term recovery. Taking part in daily walks, mindfulness walks and yoga sessions can help you improve your mental health and see there are alternative activities to drinking and taking drugs.


Mental Health and Addiction

Mental health and drug and alcohol addiction, though separate issues, often find themselves entwined. Sometimes people self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to alleviate depression or anxiety – eventually making the issue worse. Other times, mental health issues spring up due to addiction.

Whilst mental health is not treated alone at Ocean Recovery, group sessions address mental health as part of the programme. This is called dual diagnosis, which can help deal with both issues concurrently.


What Happens After Rehab?

Once you leave rehab, the journey is not over. Addiction cannot be cured, only treated, and your work should continue to ensure you maintain your sobriety.

By attending Ocean Recovery, you can have access to our aftercare programme.

Aftercare takes the form of group support sessions where you and between 5-20 people come together to talk and connect. Sessions are held via zoom and onsite, providing flexibility if you are not in the immediate area. Through these meetings, you can have a support network that can help you in darker moments and potentially pull you back from relapsing.

By being open and communicative you can see that you are not alone in your struggle. You can also use your own experiences to help others that may need it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

What happens during detoxification?

Detoxification is the first phase of treatment via private rehab. It motivates the body to withdraw from drugs or alcohol, by eliminating all consumption and influences. It helps to reduce cravings and internal urges to consume further bouts. 

Am I ready for rehab?

It’s important that you are accepting of and committed to rehab. If you are ready to change, listen to professional advice and commit to either inpatient or outpatient rehab, you will be ready to experience the process.   Without acceptance it can be difficult to open yourself up and embrace the recovery steps offered throughout the rehabilitation process. You can get ready by doing your research, preparing for your transition, and being fully invested in your recovery journey.

How long can a patient stay in rehab?

Residential rehab typically lasts as little as 28 days. It is also possible to prolong a stay at rehab, to experience long-term support. Long-term programmes are especially beneficial for people who are struggling with chronic addictions, and those who require greater support whilst solidifying healthy, sober choices.
