Looking for drug and alcohol rehab Essex? We at Asana Lodge are here to help you regain your sobriety.

Get in touch with us to find out how we can help you recover in luxury and gain your independence back. Here, we will let you in on what you can expect from rehab, from treatment options to a typical day-in-the-life.

First, you will be admitted to our Essex rehab, so let’s take a look at what this looks like.


The Admissions Process for Rehab in Essex

Prior to arriving at our facility from Essex, you will have an informal call with us here at Asana to go through a pre-admission assessment over the phone.

The pre-admission assessment is essentially a discussion in which we will learn more about your addiction type, the kind of treatment that you require and how advanced your addiction is.

This is the initial step whether you have been referred or you are self admitting. The assessment is conducted by an experienced counsellor to help determine the best private treatment programme for you and all of the information you provide is handled in the strictest of confidence.

Once our teams of addiction specialists have enough information to put together a recovery plan for you, you’re then provided with an admission date and time.

From then onwards, all you need to do is make your way to our facility in order to commence your residential treatment plan. We try to make the process as simple as possible from start to finish to ensure that you don’t have to worry about any admin or small details; instead, you can focus only on your recovery.


What Does a Day in Rehab Look Like?

While we can’t speak for every Essex rehab, there is a general structure among CQC regulated rehabs. Your day’s in rehab are typically structured, all tailored to your addiction and the level of structure, care and medication required.

That being said, this is a skeleton of something to expect in terms of structure.

Morning Routine

Residents typically wake up early in the morning and follow a structured routine, however remember you’re in a rehab that is homely. You won’t be waking up in a clinical setting, it is a much more pleasant awakening.

Once you’re up, a nutritious breakfast is provided by onsite chefs to ensure you’re getting the food and energy you need to recover. If you require medication, you’ll receive the prescribed doses under medical supervision.


Group therapy sessions are an integral part of addiction clinics, Essex based or not. That’s why afternoons are occupied by various forms of therapy, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), individual counselling, and support groups. These sessions aim to address the underlying issues contributing to substance addiction, develop coping mechanisms, and provide emotional support.

During the afternoon, you will be served your lunch, then you’ll typically be focusing on the treatment plan. Whatever kind of therapy that might be, the point is, this time of day you’ll be actively working on your recovery.

That being said, a balanced rehab program includes recreational activities to promote physical well-being and provides healthy outlets for residents. Later in the afternoon in between working therapy, you may take part in activities like sports, art therapy, yoga, or outdoor excursions. These activities serve as opportunities for residents to relax, socialise, and discover new interests and hobbies that can serve as satisfaction rather than substances.


After you have been served your You’ll also be served your dinner from an onsite chef, evenings are often dedicated to leisure activities. Residents may participate in structured activities like movie nights or group games. It is a good idea to socialise and get comfortable in your environment.

Once the day draws to a close, you will head off to bed, ensuring you get adequate rest for the next day. You may want to utilise relaxation techniques, and winding down activities such as reading or journaling.

This is why the first step is drug or alcohol addiction treatment at our detox clinic, so you can physically withdraw from any substances prior to rehab treatment.

While undergoing treatment, you’ll be prescribed medication to manage any symptoms you may be experiencing. The specific type of medication however is subjective patient to patient since there are various addictions being treated at our rehab clinic.

Self- Funded In-Patient Rehab In Essex

One of the most popular ways to pay is through self-funded finances. This is typically a deposit to secure your place, then, you will pay the remaining balance once you arrive at the facility.

Private Medical Insurance May Cover A Rehab Programme

If you have private medical insurance, you could be covered for funding to pay the private rehab. Check with your provider to see what kind of coverage you have and if you can address your addiction through them.


What to Do If You Cannot Afford a Private Rehab Facility

If you’re unable to afford treatment and no payment plan suits your needs, there are other options so always still seek help.

You can utilise the NHS drug and alcohol addiction services, however these are extremely limited.

In some circumstances, you may be able to request the NHS pays or subsidises the cost of a private facility but this can be difficult unless you pick a rehab that has an NHS partner programme.

That being said you can still get out-patient help, you won’t be left alone and you will still receive help, just through different means.

For instance, you could address mental health issues through your GP, as this might be a catalyst for drug abuse.

Similarly, you can take advantage of NA meetings (Narcotics Anonymous) or AA meetings in Essex (Alcohol Anonymous) support groups in your area.

It isn’t easy, but it is certainly possible to do it on your own. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t allow finances to stunt your will to get help, it is always possible. Simply contact your GP to take the first step in the right direction.
