If you or someone you know are struggling with alcohol addiction or problematic alcohol use, our dayhab treatment could be your answer.
If you believe you are suffering from alcohol addiction or problematic alcohol use, the sooner you can begin your alcohol treatment the better. For most sufferers, the only way to stop their addiction or problematic alcohol use and obtain sustained abstinecne is to enter a formal alcohol treatment programme. We offer an in-person Dayhab at our non-residential rehab in London or online via our Digital Dayhab. Our online offering allows you to do all of your treatment from your home or office so you can access treatment without the need to come to one of our centres. And because its online you don't even need to be in the UK. Many clients in Europe and the Middle East can now have access to intensive online treatment that is discreet and effective.
Our alcohol addiction treatment service is offered at approximately one-tenth the cost of traditional alcohol residential rehab and exceeds residential programme success rates. We’re local, intensive, affordable and offer drug and alcohol testing as part of our alcohol rehab programme. We also provide a programme online so you don't even have to come to one of our centres. If you need help now or know someone who is showing the signs of alcohol addiction, please reach out to us today at our rehab in London.
Our addiction treatment programme is made up of a mixture of group work and one-to-ones with a primary therapist. We also provide a family programme with up to two relatives or friends. It’s not compulsory, but experience shows that involving family members and friends in alcohol rehab improves family dynamics and increases the chances of long-term recovery.

At the Help Me Stop rehab in London, we offer flexible addiction treatment to allow realistic recovery around the commitments of work, family and study. We’re open in the mornings, during the day and the evenings, helping our clients to fit their alcohol rehab around the demands of regular life.
Before we get into the main differences between addiction treatment options, it is important to note that both private alcohol rehab and Local Authority (LA) funded rehabs offer effective treatment for alcohol addiction. The main differences between the two are waiting times, cost and resources.
An LA rehab for alcohol addiction is more likely to have a waiting period to join the programme due to demand and limited budgets. That means you may have to wait for months before you can start treatment. By contrast, our private facility can usually take clients as soon as they have been assessed. This is important because the earlier you get treatment the better your chances of recovery.
Cost is another factor. The LA alcohol rehab facilities do not charge a fee for their services whereas private companies do as we recive no support from the government or other funding sources and as such we have to meet all our overheads ourselves.
Because of our fee-based model, Help Me Stop and other private alcohol addiction rehab centres are able to provide more resources. This can include specialist trained psychotherapists, online help and longer treatment times. Simply put, we have more money to spend on the best addiction treatment tools.
While both outpatient treatment and inpatient (sometimes called residential rehab) alcohol rehabs can treat addiction, there are some major differences.
A residential rehab centre usually has a minimum time commitment where you will need to live in the facility. That means you will not be able to work, live at home or see friends while receiving alcohol help. The idea is to completely remove you from your everyday life and have you focus on nothing but recovery in a protective bubble. This can be very effective but it can mean a significant time commitment. Many services that offer residential rehab require a minimum of 4 weeks of treatment, plus relapse rates can be up to 60% in the first 90 days of leaving, predominately due to the impact of real live.
By contrast, outpatient alcohol and drug rehab facilities like Help Me Stop provide daily treatment either in person or online but still allows you to work and see family and treatment is delivered outside of a protective bubble giving real-time opportunities to put lessons learnt into practice. This is also a great option for someone who may not be able to take weeks out from their job. It can also be a better option for parents who need to care for children or others with regular commitments.
Both inpatient and outpatient alcohol and drug rehab facilities usually offer 1 to 1 counselling sessions, group sessions and other treatment options. These are administered by trained counsellors or therapists so you get expert help and support throughout your recovery.
Taking action to make a change can seem really daunting. No one ever feels 100% ready for alcohol rehab even when they are changing their lives for the better. By entering a rehabilitation programme, you are taking the first step in the right direction. Just remember, everyone entering rehab will feel nervous or unsure but it does get better.
