If you’re in the West Midlands and have been abusing alcohol and/or drugs, you no longer have to be imprisoned in the cage of your own addiction because treatment options are available that can help you break free. Withdrawal symptoms can make the recovery process scary but medical detoxes at the Recovery Lighthouse are approved by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
It is important that you seek help for your substance abuse because ignoring it can lead to devastating consequences. The implications of substance misuse cut across both the health and social spheres, which can affect your personal life and career, and also create a rift in your relationship with others. We will guide you in the right direction to recovery, as well as the services we offer via our rehab.

Our rehab centre, Recovery Lighthouse, is one of the most advanced addiction treatment facilities in the UK. Located in Worthing in West Sussex, and just a little more than 150 miles away via the A34 or M40, our rehab is perfectly situated in an environment that can provide the necessary seclusion from distractions and local temptations and triggers you may experience if you rehabilitated in the West Midlands. We also provide the comfort that will help you concentrate on your recovery. We can also arrange professional sobert transport to bring you to and from our clinic, to ease the stress of driving down yourself or navigating public transport.
The addictions we treat at Recovery Lighthouse include addiction to drugs, both legal and illegal, alcohol addiction, codependency, which involves addiction to more than one substance; dual diagnosis treatment for the simultaneous occurrence of substance misuse and a mental disorder; depression, which could be a result of substance abuse; and other forms of addictions including sex, gaming, gambling and internet addiction.
We provide an integrated alcohol and drug detoxification, which will stabilise you as your body gets rid of the substance you have abused. This treatment is carried out by medical professionals with expertise and experience when it comes to withdrawal and detox. You will be monitored round-the-clock throughout the duration of your detox, which will last for a week.
Once detox is over, you’ll go on to rehab, where the psychological issues relating to your addiction will be addressed. This includes tackling the reasons that led you to first take drugs and alcohol, and the resulting effects. We go a long way to make sure your treatment effectively carries you to recovery, by making our facility conducive and comfortable, with modern living facilities and bespoke treatment plans.
Our rehab programme involves a number of holistic therapies:
We have added amenities such as Wi-Fi, spacious single bedrooms with modern decors, a gym, and state-of-the-art kitchen and dining. These, as well as our treatment programmes and arrangements, will make your rehabilitation more exciting.
• Price can be a barrier which needs to be weighed up versus the long-term cost of drug and alcohol abuse
• Being away from friends and family which at first can be emotionally challengingion
Detox and rehab starts from £834 to £2,750 per week depending on treatment length and the clinic chosen
