When recovering from alcohol addiction, in-patient alcohol treatment centres are an advisable option. These are supportive environments where trained professionals can manage detox and rehabilitation programmes for patients.

Those suffering from severe alcohol addiction need this level of support because unmanaged detoxification from heavy use of alcohol can have potentially fatal side effects. Trained professionals can create a treatment plan for patients including medicated withdrawal and stabilisation.

These recovery centres allow patients to stay for a number of days or weeks and concentrate on their recovery, without the distractions from the outside world. Where as if someone uses out-patient services, they are still living at home and can be more easily distracted.

In-patient alcohol treatment centres need to be calming and relaxed and are often decorated in neutral colours, with comfortable furnishings that allow the patient to de-stress. The aim is for in-patient facilities to be homely not clinical.

As patients are often sharing in-patient facilities with others, there also needs to be a welcoming and inclusive feel. Work is often done in groups to encourage social interaction, but there must also be room for privacy when needed.

The overall aim of in-patient treatment centres is to encourage recovery and offer support so that patients can develop the strength to leave their alcohol addiction behind and start a new chapter in their lives.


Wellington Lodge are an in-patient alcohol treatment centre based in London. They offer managed medicated withdrawal from alcohol in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Patients receive high levels of support whilst staying at the clinic and receive aftercare to enable them to maintain an alcohol free lifestyle.

Question by Darius Young: Can the uninsured and unemployed go to alcohol rehab too?
Ok, I am 20 years old now and I am no longer in denial of being an alcoholic. I realize it now. My life is so messed up and I want to change before things get even worse. The only problem is that now I am jobless again due to my alcoholism and I am close to broke. Do rehabs accept people with no insurance or a job even? Thank you…..
