Man calculating costs

How much does rehab cost in the UK?

One of the key questions when considering addiction treatment is: “How much does rehab cost?”

As there are a range of rehab options available, there is no one exact answer, but here are some average costs for private rehab facilities across the UK.

Pricing table

It is important to understand that prices vary between rehab centres, and what you get for your money can also differ enormously from centre to centre. This is why it is crucial to do your research and consider the facilities, staff, detox and aftercare services provided, not just the price per week or night.

Factors that affect the cost of rehab

Several factors contribute to the cost of rehab; understanding these can help you make an informed decision about the right treatment. They include:

Location, location, location…

Just as in real estate, location can significantly affect the cost of a rehab centre. Facilities in desirable, secluded, or particularly serene settings often come with a higher price tag due to the therapeutic benefits these environments offer. This is particularly true regarding ultra-secluded “celebrity rehab centres”, which cater for (and charge accordingly!) high-profile individuals concerned about their privacy.

However, client privacy and confidentiality are legal requirements for all rehab centres, so all you need to think about is choosing a location where you feel comfortable. Recovery Lighthouse is located just a short walk from the beach, which is the perfect place to unwind, enjoy the sea air and reflect on your recovery progress.

Staff profile…

The cost of a rehab facility often reflects the personnel involved in delivering care. A higher price could mean a better staff-to-patient ratio, more experienced therapists, or a wider range of specialists involved in treatment. The best rehab centres offer various therapies and holistic approaches led by experts.

When choosing a rehab centre like Recovery Lighthouse, which provides detox, you should also check that the medical team has experienced doctors and on-site nurses who will oversee your withdrawal and keep you safe.


Centres boasting a more luxurious stay with amenities like private rooms, fitness centres, holistic treatment options, or gourmet dining facilities will also usually carry a higher cost. However, it is crucial to balance these perks with the quality of addiction treatment provided.

Look for a rehab centre that provides the best services and facilities for your budget and has a proven track record of success.

Length of stay…

The cost of rehab is also directly proportional to the duration of your stay. Simply put, the longer the programme, the higher the cost, reflecting the extended use of facilities, resources and professional care.

In fact, at Recovery Lighthouse, all clients receive the same programme of therapies and treatments and are able to access all our excellent facilities so the cost of rehab depends solely on how long you stay.

You can get a good idea of the standards of different rehab centres, their facilities, staff and other important factors by looking at their CQC reports. These are done by the Care Quality Commission, an independent body which assesses rehab centres and other social and health facilities. Recovery Lighthouse is proud of our CQC report as it reflects the importance we place on every aspect of our facilities and care.

Does alcohol and drug rehab cost the same?

This may vary from centre to centre, but at Recovery Lighthouse, our alcohol and drug rehab programmes are priced equally. This uniformity promotes fairness and clarity, ensuring each client receives comprehensive care without the worry of varying costs.

Our treatment prices

At Recovery Lighthouse, our priority is to deliver high-quality, affordable care. Our commitment to value-for-money treatment is reflected in our prices:

Why pay for private rehab?

Choosing to pay for private rehab is an investment in your health, well-being and future. The immediate access to treatment and personalised care that private rehab offers can be invaluable in your recovery journey. Private rehab centres like Recovery Lighthouse have the experience and resources required to give you the best possible chance of recovery.

The ongoing support that private rehab provides is particularly important for maintaining sobriety. Relapse rates for different substances are between 40-60%, with the risk at its highest during the first few months after leaving rehab. Recovery Lighthouse’s aftercare programme helps to make this transition as smooth as possible and ensures you do not become isolated and left alone to struggle. We will also invite you to join our alumni network, where you can stay connected with our staff and other clients, attend fun and informative events and remain part of the Recovery Lighthouse family.

Is private rehab worth the price?

When compared with the societal, financial and personal costs of addiction, the cost of private rehab is definitely a worthwhile investment. The devastating impact of addiction on health, relationships, employment and overall quality of life is immeasurable but with private rehab, you can break the cycle of addiction, reclaim your life and start on the path towards a brighter future.

Drug, alcohol and behavioural addictions like gambling can cost tens of thousands of pounds a year. While the cost of private rehab may seem a little daunting, take some time to calculate how much your addiction costs you, and you will see that rehab can provide a serious return on investment.

How long does rehab last at UKAT centres?

At Recovery Lighthouse, we understand that the duration of addiction treatment should be tailored to individual needs. That’s why we offer flexible programmes ranging from two to twelve weeks. This allows sufficient time for detoxification and therapeutic interventions, setting the stage for a successful recovery journey.

Your decision regarding the length of your stay in rehab should be driven by your recovery needs, not just affordability. We acknowledge that not everyone can commit to an extended period in rehab. Therefore, regardless of your stay’s duration, we provide all our clients with one year of free aftercare. Your recovery matters to us, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

NHS vs private rehab – Why choose our centres

The NHS does provide addiction treatment services, but demand often outweighs available resources, resulting in long waiting lists. Here are some of the benefits of a UKAT rehab centre VS NHS recovery services:
